Vla, he does this ,1Co 10:11 Now these things happened to them as examples, and they were written for a warning to us upon whom the ends of the systems of things have come.
We can learn from past experiences.
KT - please only reply to people on the answer or comment list you are talking on - it's rude, and confusing to take over someone else's answer with comments to another.
Jp death was a genetic sentence against Adam and Eve, we also are effected since we came from Adam and Eve. So this is a valid truth that God's word is truth.
Please, stay on the topic of my answer - but I'll comment - All animals, cells, humans, plants are subject to death - cells die, we are all made from cells. All living things will die. A+E didn't affect other than human, so how come others die??
JP I can not explain to you something you do not want to believe in. you do understand death , So does the bible answers why we all can die, why is it a tree can live over 4000 years, animals are worth more then humans and they can live 100's.
Fine. Then stick to the topic of my answer - I mentioned nothing of death or even Adam and Eve. I mentioned the inhumane treatment of LGBT. nothing about religion. It's rude when u take over these topics with yr pushing of religion + I'm tired of it
Jp the whole world of humanity is being mistreated. I feel for anyone being abused
by another human, I do not want anyone hurt or mustreated. Let me make that very clear.
But I do support the morals of the bible as the proper source of how to live.
So if the bible mistreat, then you're okay with it? Funny that, given you are a woman, + yr book treats women badly. What yr saying is that mistreatment is bad, unless one is LGBT, Bcus yr belief says to mistreat.
Jp park you want to interpret the bible in that light , maybe the real problem is that you find it convenient to stone the bible or God because it does not fit your lifestyle.
This can be clearly seen. So we can not agree on anything here.take care
In the Bible you use to condemn homosexuality it insists that a woman marry her rapist, that if she doesn't she should be stoned to death, it condones slavery, mistreatment of others. I'm not interpreting in anyway other than how it is written.
Jp people can make the bible say what ever they want it to say, but that certainly does not make it true. Many people read it and do not have your analysis. No matter what I say , or you say the truth will prevail.
My point exactly - you could say it says being gay is wrong, and your interpretation could be wrong. Yet, it seems that only those interpretations that agree with you are right, and nothing else. NOW, back to the topic at hand - being humane to LGBT
You know Jp, you seem extreme on the subject, and you interpet the bible to say what you wish,When I share scriptures it is not to be mean or cruel because I Share Them With everyone. But it seems you are only concern with your lifestyle that's all.
Nope, not extreme, just fed up with religious beliefs/Holy books being used as an excuse 2 treat people inhumanely. U shared scripture, I shared that the word homosexual is mistranslated 2 remind others. Topic here is LGBT hence y focus on right now.
Jp you are blaming God for the misuse of the others through the bible . That is like blaming a child for something his parent did. Say the parent stole a car, the child has nothing to do with how the perants schemed to steal a car. You blame all.
Where have I blamed anyone? I've never blamed anyone - I'm just tired of religion being used as a scapegoat for being nasty, veiled in 'Gods word' when it's the persons opinion of what 'God' may have said. I have no issue with God, just some followrs
Interesting Jp because you express different then what you say. Like a manager may help a owner run a business , and the employee may never see the boss, and the owner says tell the employee not to do something a certain way. The manager relates
Show me where I express differently? I have no issue with God, just some of his followers. What does this have to do with my answer? Nothing. I'm asking politely - stick to what my answer speaks of (+ question topic) or I do not wish to continue.
KP it is mean and cruel to share Scripture with ANYONE when that Scripture is mean and cruel. I don't care what any god or prophet or holy book says: if we don't practice tolerance where there is no wrongdoing than we are doing wrong.
I do not think what people say can stop people from their choices, Certainly God himself has not sent an executioner while anyone is living their choice even violating his principals .
But he does do this.
To Kiss &Tales: It is your right to PERSONALLY follow your beliefs in God's laws. Some decent people opt for the laws of morality, which don't prevent gays from being happy. I don't think they are preaching their laws to you, so let's keep it fai
As a comment is allowed here I give it in truth, not personally knowing anyone or their pacific lifestyles , but we can share why we believe what is written as Grace asked this question. Is this a question preached, neither is the answer preached.
To Kiss & Tales: We PREACH when we warn homosexuals that they won't get into the "Kingdom of Heaven", like you did below. It wouldn't be preaching if you shared that you don't agree with their marriage because of your religion. - no "sin" allude
Vla, I did not warn anyone ,we all are human under the same warnings, so who can preach and is not a sinner, the point is the scriptures shared all things that will keep any one out, as posted. This was already written before my birth and yours.
To Kiss & Tales:: Not worth discussing, my friend. You are not aware that you keep preaching even while explaining how you are not. Keep your faith by all means. I got nothing more to add here. All the best, and be well.
what, KT, if your God isn't the 'one' - what if you've been fooled, + U r supposed embrace all with love, rather than warn? What if the 'warnings' we all 'live under' r not true? Bcus yr God is 1 of 1000s worshiped. Morality is not religion based
Jp, what if you are wrong, have you considered that it is easy to say another human is wrongThe God of Abraham, Moses , David, Jesus has proven he is real.
Death is a sentence from Adam and Eve's
Death is proof we experience.
Ah, but all god's speak of death and what becomes of us afterwards - who's to say thats proof of any God? Medically it's the end of life, cells don't last forever. Nothing to do with Gods. How have Moses, Jesus etc proven what u say
Excellent point about interracial marriage. It wasn't until 1967 the Supreme Court struck down all state laws that forbid interracial marriage. That's less than 50 years ago! (Loving VS Virginia). The couple was going to be jailed for 2 years!
Jp, l love people in General the reason I come on HP to help people know the future , to help them know that all pain and suffering will end,to let people know the real life is ahead, the only way we can experience this provision is being educated.
Thanks for the comment! Judge Thomas would not have been able to marry his current wife in all states prior to the 67 decision but still didn't vote to give marriage freedom to those who didn't yet have it. How sad is that?
Neither would Michael Jordan, Robert De Niro or George Lucas be able to have their chosen spouses today either!
Progress is usually gradual and one generation at a time.
Jp the point is you only know what is physical because that is your experience,
But there are the spiritual things of God you will not recognize.And that is not forced by him
But there are people who understand the spiritual things of God who share
Jp you live for earth , I live for both heaven and earth, so you will not understand , you speak for now , and your present concerns , but the whole world has greater, and there is a cure to all our problems but you will not consider the truth.
Actually, you won't consider any truth bar yr own. Again, KT, I am not discussing this on any other comment than our own - it's extremely rude, and I'm sick of u doing such. Email me or use only our answers. I will not continue this in any other way
Why does your reasoning and words show
That you are angry because people disagree.Set the example of kindness in your character then private business.
You show hostility when shown none to you.
I express my beliefs you stress hostility in you
Jp saying people hate people because they support the bible in all moral aspects is not a fair statment.
I find this to be the case with people, if you disagree then you hate us, if you agree you love us.
No love is telling the truth to save life
There actions caused a chain of events that marked all humans.
They should be here with us now.but they are wiped away for eternity by their own hand.
We can do as we please, but how long will it last. Is it worth being like Adam and Eve.
Jp the point I was trying to make is that we could live longer then trees or animals until Adam and Eve interrupted the plan, but the plan is still valid, we as their children have been given a hope to keep living throughout eternity.
Jp. You do not believe in God , in not believing in God ,then you can not believe he inspired his words in the scrolls which is in translations of the bible.
My comment was to people who do believe
There is a spiritual journey to life ,
We are on
Jp the bible is our protection when we apply it to avoid abuse .yes the world will do wrong things to us, but are we a contributor
by breaking the moral standards of the heavenly Father. Since you will not consider him or his feelings .
People seem to think that all love is negotiable as long as it is love. We love our pets , but there should be a limit , not romantic.
Example of Adam and Eve proved they cross their limitation , of right and wrong from the heavenly Fathers point
I love everyone, we are meant to be different to test other's hearts. I will never turn my back on another human. Gay straight, we are humans!
Jp the manager relates the message to the employee, but the employee does not like the manager relating the message and says I am tired of you saying what the boss told you to say. So the boss knows the situation
What will the boss do ?
You know true it is nobody buisness accept God who is perfect and judges fairly based on his moral standards, my thing is this you publicly make it others peoples business , then tell them you must agree , or you are an enemy.
God promotes Love ! Man promotes hate and fear is part of hate !
God created love , but people fail to address what type,
Example God created food for us, Adam and Eve were allowed 99% of all food, but one tree was off the list.
Was it eatable yes. Could they see it touch it yes, but did they have a right to it.
The truth is a valuble thing , and so rather people disagree,, I gave my comment, I contribute to help in a spiritual way.
You say who cares then why post this question if you did not want to hear the comments of many.
