    Revel - The Bible condemns fornication, and therefore condemns rape.

    Harley - James was the pastor at Jerusalem, over the Ebonites. Galatians 2 speaks of the intrusion at Jerusalem, and speaks of the very leadership of Jerusalem, and Paul was quite derogatory towards them. And as I said in another post, but bears repeating here, James equates the flesh to spiritual, when Jesus said the flesh profits nothing, and is not spiritual, and as James said "count it all joy to fall into diverse temptations!" However, Christ Jesus said Himself to His followers in the model prayer, "pray that you enter not into temptations". James says it's good and count it all joy, Christ said it's bad and pray that you enter not...I choose rather to follow Christ, than the idiocy of James' heretical theological stand. The entirety of James' teaching is heretical, in light of the remainder of the New Testament. James' assertion that. "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." Religion doesn't save, and Jesus Himself prayed to the Father that He not take us out of he world, but to keep us from the evil one. We are the salt that preserves the earth. I don't need pure religion, that saves no one, and no where do we see Jesus preaching that message. There is no record of scripture that tells us James ever placed his faith in Christ, in fact, while Jesus was still alive he tried to lay hands on Christ because he thought Jesus was crazy. His epistle never once speaks to the work of Christ, but only self. It's a Jewish book, written by a Jewish idiot who is not an Apostle. I'm not Jewish, I'm Christian, and a Gentile. As for me, Paul is the Apostle to the Gentiles.

    To say Paul and James are saying the same thing, either have no capacity to understand basic logic, or are flatly willfully blind, I'll let you pick...

    Jas 2:21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works, when he had offered Isaac his son upon the altar?

    Rom 4:2 For if Abraham were justified by works, he hath whereof to glory; but not before God.

    And lastly, the greatest of all criteria, Christ Jesus by His own declaration, concerning His Own Holy Spirit, that when the Spirit speaks it will testify expressly of Him and His works, not of us and our works. "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of Me." Want to know if Christ is speaking through His Spirit? It will testify expressly of faith in Him and His finished work at Calvary. That's the will of the Father. Sadly, this precept is non-existent in any of James' teachings, and also as sad, in many who call themselves Christian. And while sad, it's not surprising, the ego has always wanted to be stroked, and the flesh wants to play it's part. You can only conclude it s not of His Spirit, but from the flesh. It sorts out the false teachers pretty quick. Preach the message of the grace and peace of Christ, apart from your works, to the praise of His glorious grace. Not to the boasting of your works.
    • When Jesus Says 'I Never Knew You'
    • Unfortunately, this passage is often presented to genuine believers in an attempt to get them to "do more." Such badgering is not helpful, and can actually rob those weak in faith of the assurance of salvation. I suspect you have heard this passage used in such a way. But have you stopped to really ...

    The real question is....if two judges refused to perform homosexual weddings...should they recuse themselves. You know the Qs would be howling for them to step aside for their bias.

    Thank you Lord for brave men like Franklin Graham and Benjamin Netanyahu!!

    "Yeshiva University Professor Rabbi Benjamin Blech - “There is biblical precedent, eerily echoing today’s story, the Book of Esther that recounts the first recorded instance of attempted genocide against Jews in the ancient empire of Persia, today known as Iran. In the Book of Esther, Mordechai learns of Haman’s plot to exterminate all the Jews ‘in a single day.’ Mordechai urges his adopted daughter Esther to intercede with her husband, the king.

    But Esther is afraid. If she were to approach her husband to appeal Haman’s decree, she would be breaking ‘royal protocol’ by approaching the king when she had not been summoned, which could lead to a death penalty for her.

    After begging the Jews to fast and pray, “Esther chose to disregard protocol in the face of possible extermination of her people. Esther succeeded in averting the evil decree. As a result, Jews to this day around the world celebrate the Festival of Purim.”".......................................

    kuyashii - Heck, do a quick search on NY Times and you will find a study showing that liberals are as anti-science as they accuse conservatives of being. (NY times is pretty darn liberal too by the way).

    Tangent001 - You know of no secular philosophy that blames environments for all evil? Liberal theology, which is basically secular humanism masquerading as "Christian" does exactly that. LT believed that "social structures" are responsible for all the sin in the world and that people have no choice but to do evil things. LT regards personal sin as inconsequential and blames "social structures" for everything. LT is not biblically sound.

    Roger Vincent - Nothing in my post "rationalize(s) away a human being's (baby) humanity". A human being is a being, like you and me, who can breathe air and exist outside a womb. If a fetus is not yet at that stage of development it is, at best, a potential human being that may, if all goes well, one day become an actual human being. It is so tiresome to read posts by fanatics like you who refuse to acknowledge the pivotal difference that viability makes.

    Sigh. Please note that science has no ethics - the knowledge of how to do something has nothing to do with the wisdom of deciding whether it should be done or not.

    Sigh. Please note that science has no ethics - the knowledge of how to do something has nothing to do with the wisdom of deciding whether it should be done or not. It is like blaming the chemistry of gunpowder for a somebody's decision to shoot somebody else. On the other hand, no system which is in denial of reality will last - it will be a house built on sand. It would be nice if some parts of Christianity could actually come to a sensible view of science. God put some effort into creating the universe, it would be nice if Christians actually took His creation seriously.

    kuyashii - don't you worry now gay supporters. Popular opinion is on your side even if facts are not. So my arguements will not garner much support as we all know people like popular opinion much more then they do facts! Historically proven time and again!

    RockyC - but don't worry, the Bible foretold all this. "Knowledge shall increase but wisdom will be lost. Right will be made to look evil and evil to look right. Famines, wars, and rumors of war will abound. Do not fret when the world hates you (Christians) because the world hated me first (Christ)." Humm, just another indicator the Bible is spot on!

    RockyC - Knowingly and deliberately setting up shop in a gay community so you can profit from them...but....insisting on a policy of discrimination against the very same people you profit from, makes you an arrogant carpetbagging jerk, NOT a civil rights hero. And speaking strictly in a business and marketing sense, that was a horrible, no good policy to have especially given their location. The community was right to use market forces to run them out business.

    netprophet - Who was MLK writing to and chastising in his letter from a Birmingham Jail? White Southern Christians who were silent to the struggles of their brethren. And yes Christian values fought against slavery but it was other Christians who used their religion to back up these atrocities in the first place.
