  1. ""You will be ever hearing but never understanding; you will be ever seeing but never perceiving. For this people’s heart has become calloused; they hardly hear with their ears, and they have closed their eyes. Otherwise they might see with their eyes, hear with their ears, understand with their hearts and turn, and I would heal them. But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it."

    "The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God."

    Such confidence we have through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

    You want to know who God is then read what Christ had to say. He is the New Covenant - the Old (covenant) Testament is no longer valid. So do not reference it.

    Homosexuality, adultery, murder, stealing, envy, gluteny are all sin and seperate us from God. Christ offers all of us sinners reconcilliation with God.

    When people who don't know the bible use the bible to invalidate the bible it is quite silly.

    Sadly most have no idea of what faith is because it is counter-intellectual and counter-logical/reasonable and therefore they reject it. Sadly far too many very intelligent people are victims of themselves. They have great intellectual capacity to define and metaphore what a paradox principle is yet are completely and hopelessly powerless to live by it.

    Inserting religion and mythology into a faith discussion is foolish. Discussing faith with someone who has no idea what faith is or how to practice it is equally foolish.

    "Do not deceive yourselves. If any of you think you are wise by the standards of this age, you should become fools so that you may become wise."

    I have absolutely the same proof you do. None. But "the substance of things hoped for by the evidence of the unseen" have been abundant in my life. "You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart." It does not say mind, logic, reason or any other faculty. All of those faculties contradict time after time after time. I cannot find Him on my terms.


    My God is a creator and nurturer - He created me perfectly and nurtures esteem just as your father should. Do you have a son or daughter whom your brought into the world whom you tell "you are my second or third most greatest". No. That would be counter instinctive and counter productive.


    Blaming sin for the absence of a God is naive.

    As far as alien life - my faith and knowledge of my God does not cause me to become ignorant nor do I dismiss that there may very well be other life in this vast universe that God created. Alien by definition means foreign. It does not mean that my same creator did not also create them and nurture them just as he has me.

    4. last but not least, it is totally bogus for AandE to announce that phil has been suspended...when 9 out of 10 episodes of the upcoming season have already been made and include phil in them.
    in effect AandE is making a fortune off the robertsons while at the same time claiming to be outraged by them...

  5. I think the guy is a moron and anyone that believes crap like he does is too. But, he was within his right and no matter how dumb it makes him look, A+E knew exactly what they were getting so it is a bit hypocritical. I mean, we were raised Catholic and it wasn't until I learned the way religion views other's beliefs and how intolerant it is, that I realized what a crock of **** religion is. It's embarrassing to see what it can make otherwise intelligent people do and think.

  6. No part of the Bible speaks of homosexuality as we know it today. I am a Christian and I believe the most important part of being a Christian is to learn of the circumstances the authors were facing when the books were composed. It was written in a specific time in history and under unique circumstances. The Bible in no way, shape, or form speaks of homosexuality as it pertains to today. In that time it was common practice for fathers to sodomize their youngest boy, then that boy did the same to his youngest son. Absolutely repulsive for todays standards. The word homosexuality did not even exist during that time. Paul, in Romans, was upset because Christians were using the temples as orgies, not because of the type of orgies that were occurring. It's not present in the Ten Commandments. Jesus never spoke of it. If it were such a terrible sin, don't you think the Son of Man, Jesus Christ himself would speak of it? The last time I read the four canonical Gospels, I'm pretty sure Jesus spoke of other sins. Not to mention it isn't present in the other non-canonical, "Gnostic", gospels.

    Main point: You have to read the scripture in the context of which it was written. The Bible is much more clandestine than most people realize.

    I cannot comprehend how a man could not love a woman, but thats how they were born. I find it very hypocritical that some Christians can condemn these people to hell and still look in the mirror everyday as if they're any better.

    Phil also had the right to speak his opinion without being chastised. Though the foundation of which differs from mine.

    Longest post of my career, I feel better now.

    Jesus never mentioned homosexuality, but He did condemn all forms of sexual immorality:

    "What comes out of you is what defiles you. For from within, out of your hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile you." (TNIV, Mark 7:20-23)

    Then we can talk about what Paul wrote,

    Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (NIV, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)

    Edit: I'm bowing out of this thread. Have a great holiday guys!
    Psalms 62:1-62:2

  8. I have a rebuttal, but as noted before, I'm not looking to spark a debate. I don't believe you are either, judging from your post edit.

    I believe this passage in Micah sums up my learnings from the Hebrew Scriptures best: "He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does The Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love with kindness, and to walk humbly with your God" (The New Oxford Annotated Bible, Micah. 6:8 )?

    And you know that how? Or just pulled it out of your a$$? You never hear about it in islam or Judaism. They may have done it to their slaves or captured enemies, but not to their sons. Raping someone would be to show your utmost disrespect for the victim. That happens even now days in wars and conflicts...

He faces no legal ramifications for what he said so there is no freedom of speech violation. People are confusing freedom of speech with the freedom to say whatever you want without ramifications for what was said from their peers or employers.
    If his contract did not have a clause for it then it is a legal issue not a freedom issue. Yes he has the freedom to say or believe whatever he wants but is not free from the consequences to what is said. He is only protected from government prosecuation and until he is thrown in jail for his beliefs then there is no freedom of speech violation.

    Not one jot or tittle of the law shall pass away until all is accomplished. That's what it is says in Mathew. The law isn't 10 commandments, it is 613. The law which says homosexuality is a sin calls for them to be killed for that sin and, with due respect, it calls for this guy to die because the products he is wearing on his show are made of mixed fibre.

    Its always fun watching people cherry pick scriptures
    You are taking Mosaic law out of context and Yes this would apply to a crowd of Jewish people however Jesus came to abolish Mosaic law. Does that mean homosexuality is OK? No because it is mentioned again post Mosaic law in the old testament. I love how people misinterpret the Bible. It's No longer a sin if I eat shellfish etc.

No, we would remove ourself from the situation or block porn sites on the internet instead..

    Again, sin has no hierarchy sin is sin.

    ... Sorry for the rant...
    Had to get involved a little here. It didn't fall at all. In fact if you believe the story of Jesus he was an OT scholar and teacher. Couldn't have fallen.

    Damn, my neighbor didn't keep the Sabbath, anyone got any extra stones?

    Homosexuality is a sin, just like my sin of lust. You can't deny it. Luckily Jesus came to save us and intercede for us between us and God. The issues that needs yo be addressed is judgement and how we rebuke others. My sin is No different than the sin of homosexuality...both ultimately send Jesus to the cross. You are relying on your fallible interpretations of the Bible to promote want you want when Timothy clearly says all Scripture is God breathed and useful for teaching and instructing. If the Bible doesn't hold absolute truth then we may as well just dismiss it all together.

  13. I promised to stay out.

    Thank you, fightback and tyga, for your replies.

    I should have never promised to stay out.

    There is so much misinformation propogated.

    Both OT and NT adress this specific issue, in detail.

    The relationship between the OT and the NT is clear as well, for anyone who has studied.

    The biblical position is clear. One needs only to look at the original terms used in the native language.

He violates the clause and A&E has a right to suspend him. What is really mind boggling is how people are making this a freedom of speech issue. A&E was justifiable in their actions and he really has no defense against them.
    Your right, its not a freedom of speech issue; but it is border line freedom of religion issue. If my employer heard that I went to a evangelical church and heard me say something that was not politically correct, can he fire me?

    In that case maybe a Christian boss can fire a Jewish Muslim employee for saying something bad about Jesus?

    Also, it iis a capitalist issue. If the viewers, who are mostly not gays, stop watching, ratings go down and sponsors no longer want to advertise becuz of no viewership, than it would behoove them to put him back.

    Also, funny how its ok to fire Phil but a Christian baker is forced to bake cakes for gays?

  17. JudoJosh is exactly right in this. He couldn't have explained it any clearer!!!

    Agreed.

    You would have to try, as many do, to claim this is not directly and specifically addressed.

    If people want to reject the validity of the Bible, they can.

    If people want to disagree with what the Bible says, they can.

    If people want to believe there is no God, or that there are many gods, they can.

    But to claim the Bible does not specifically address this issue is both innacurate and misleading.

    With respect:

    No one claimed that there isn't a few books/letters in the Bible that speak of this in some sense. Context, and when you look at it again, remember context.

    You cannot read the Bible in black-and-white. If I were to have that view than I would believe slavery is a "natural condition". Because St. Paul said in the New Testament, "slaves be obedient to your masters".

    I am not claiming the Bible does condone slavery, but the act of picking specific phrases to prove that homosexuality is wrong can also be used to argue that slavery is right.

    To focus on certain phrases, ignoring the meta-themes of justice, forgiveness and love in the Bible is just an example of not seeing the forest for the trees and in my opinion a perversion of the original message.

    Last post here. Happy holidays fellow meatheads.

    I dont think anyone has to pick and chose verses out of the Bible to prove its a sin. Its obvious and plane that it is. And no one is saying we shouldnt love and forgive; but condoning and encouraging an abomination is not love.

    The original messages in verses such as (but not limited to) Mathew 19: 4-6, Romans 1:18-32, 1 Cor. 6:9-11, 1 Tim. 1:9-11, and 2 Peter 2:6-10 seem pretty clear, and does not require any pruning to facilitate seeing the forest.

  22. Its amazing, now the sodomites want to use the Jedi mind trick on us and tell us that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality as a sin.

  23. Merry Christmas everyone!
    Recognize the true reason that we are all here, on earth, in the Universe.
    Celebrate in style this year, make sure everyone know what it is about! Celebrate the birth of Christ, our Lord and Savior.


    Forget all if fancy stuff you don't need. Give it to people that need it.

    I'M sick of going into a store seeing bratty kid begging for outrageous gifts. Or how About those 6--12 year olds with tablets and iPhone, and they still beg for more.


    Well, anyways, MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!

  24. Merry Christmas to all!!!

    This has nothing to do with bigotry. People disagree and thats it. Don't degrade others because they disagree with you.
    Further; this is only partially about religion. Homosexuality would be repulsive to me even if there was mo religion. Its natural to be repulsed by it. That doesn't mean we should treat those who struggle with it with respect. But you cant force me to want to love two men committing sodomy.

    This is where you lose me. No one cares if you love it. It is their life.. Not yours

    By the same token... Can't get me to love the idea of selling my daughter into slavery per the old testament.

    Now.. Go enjoy the holiday

    Well when you are firing me or forcing me to bake cakes for them them you make my life your life.
    As for the old Testament, we are not under the law of Moses and I dont know anyone who is demanding their right to sell their daughter into slavery.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!
