Mayor Pete and the Crackup of Christianity

USA -(Ammoland.com)- “(T)here is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so,” said Hamlet, who thereby raised some crucial questions:

Is moral truth subjective? Does it change with changing times and changing attitudes? Or is there a higher law, a permanent law, God's law, immutable and eternal, to which man's law should conform?

Are, for example, the Ten Commandments of the Old Testament, Christian teaching and natural law unchangeable and applicable to all men at all times? Or can some of the 10 be consigned to the dumpster of antiquated moral prohibitions?

This question has been brought straight into the presidential primaries by Pete Buttigieg, breakout star of the spring of 2019.

“Mayor Pete” is proudly gay and living happily with his husband.

He says God made him the way he is, and he is living the life God intended for him. Raising the same-sex marriage issue himself, the mayor defiantly taunted Mike Pence:

“Yes, Mr. Vice President … it has moved me closer to God. … That's the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand: That if you have a problem with who I am, your quarrel is not with me. …Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”

Buttigieg declared his candidacy recently, and his bid ensures that America's deepening moral divide will be front and center in 2020.

Our culture wars will not be ending anytime soon.

This weekend, General Social Survey data revealed that Americans who profess to have “no religion,” 23.1%, now exceed Catholics, our largest religion with 23%, and Evangelicals at 22.5%. And the “nones” have grown by 266% since 1991.

As for the mainstream Protestant congregations, together, they are not half as numerous as those Americans who profess no religion. Added to our racial and ethnic diversity, America is growing more diverse religiously, de-Christianizing with all deliberate speed. We are becoming another people, and a post-Christian America appears to be our destiny well before the end of this century.

Consider what has changed already.

In the 19th century, blasphemy was a crime. In the Roaring '20s the “vices” of booze and gambling were outlawed. Now they are major sources of state revenue. Divorce was a rarity. Now half of all marriages are dissolved.

After the sexual revolution of the '60s, births out of wedlock rocketed to where 40 percent of all children are born without a father in the home, as are half of Hispanics and 70 percent of all black children.

Pornography, which used to bring a prison term, today dominates cable TV. Marijuana, once a social scourge, is the hot new product. And Sen. Kamala Harris wants prostitution legalized.
In the lifetime of many Americans, homosexuality and abortion were still scandalous crimes. They are now cherished “constitutional rights”.

Yet, Mayor Pete's assertion — that God made him gay, and God intended that he live his life this way, and that this life is moral and good — is another milestone on the road to a new America.
For what Buttigieg is saying is that either God changes his moral law to conform to the changing behavior of mankind or that, for 2,000 years, Christian preaching and practice toward homosexuals has been bigoted, injurious and morally indefensible.

If Pete is right, since the time of Christ, Christians have ostracized and persecuted gays simply for being and behaving as God intended.

And if that is true, what is the defense of Christianity?

Already, among a good slice of America, especially the young, the West is guilty of centuries of racism, imperialism, colonialism, slavery, sexism, ethnic cleansing, religious persecution and cultural genocide against indigenous peoples.

Now, according to Mayor Pete's logic, the West is also guilty of centuries of hateful homophobia toward people living as God made them and intended them to live.

What does this portend for 2020?

While Democrats defend Mayor Pete's same-sex marriage as moral, they will also insist that women's “reproductive rights” remain sacrosanct, and that unborn infants, 60 million of whom have been killed in the womb since Roe v. Wade in 1973, still have no rights at all, not even the right to life.

How does a nation so divided ever come together again?

How can a nation, many of whose elites are so ashamed of its history and heritage and deplorable other half — as “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic … and bigoted” — credibly claim to be a shining city on a hill or a light unto the nations?

America is today as powerful, prosperous and free as any nation the world has ever seen. And we have used that wealth and freedom to create a culture and a society many of our own people and much of the world now see as dissolute and decadent.

Post-Christian America, in many ways, is beginning to mirror what we were once taught that the pre-Christian Roman Empire looked like.

Indeed, if the mayor's lifestyle is moral, Christianity got it wrong for 20 centuries.

    1. Close to God?!!? Delusional. Deceived of Satan. God does NOT create something that He then calls an abomination. Can gays be saved? Sure. But they cannot remain gay.

    2. Buttigieg’s reasoning is really the justification of any behaviour with the mindset: “I was born that way”.

    3. I do not accept gay “marriage”, nor will I ever.

      Mayor Buttmunch does not have a husband, although in his mind he may have a “husband”.

    4. So 23.1 % do not want religion. That means about 76.9 % do. We can see here how numbers are manipulated for a cause as this “writer” (who wants to believe we are stupid) wants us to believe that there are more God haters than believers.

      1. It certainly IS, as he is just as desirous to destroy us and our rights as any of the others are. Can’t let him in the door.

    5. I got into a discussion with a husband and wife who both have their doctorates and he is a professor at a local college. I asked what their position was on gays in the ministry, they both recently became co-pastors at the church we attend. From him I got a very political response but from her I got a response of “What would you do if it was your child, you would still love them” All in all I found out that they had spent to much time in the classroom listening to progressive profs. because they are progressive. They have taken the Bible and twisted the meaning of different parts to mean something very opposite of what we have been taught or what the Bible says. In the case of gays they say we shouldn’t judge. We don’t judge because these people flaunt it in our faces so a judgement is not possible or necessary. Sodom and Gomorrah were not destroyed by God because of rampant homosexuality, according to them. The Bible says it was.
      I came home and began my search into God and homosexuality. In just a few minutes I found eight passages in the Bible that says homosexuality is a serious sin. Those passages are Romans 1:26-27, Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13, Jude 1:9, Genesis 19:1-13, Timothy 1:8-15, Luke 16:17, Matthew 19:3-9 and Mark 7:20-23.
      I would say that Mayor Pete doesn’t know the Bible and would have been better off to have kept his mouth shut. I am going to take a chance and judge, anyone that is attracted to the same sex is sick in the head.

      1. ATTRACTION to one of the same sex is not grevious sin, or an abomination. ACTING on that attraction is, and God clearly labels that as an abomination. Don’t like that? Take it up with Him. HE’s the one that so defined sodomy.
        And we who uphold God’s judgement on the matter are not “phobic’ at all,… unless one were to count us fearful of God’s judgement, yes, even upon our entire land. Perhaps the hugely anti-sodomite moslems are sent our way by the God who has declared the practice an abomination? He has a long history of using various peoples to levy judgement upon HIS people when HIS people refuse to live by His laws. In fact, over history HE has been known to send various armies, marauders, plages, strage diseases, economic ruin, to infest verious peoples who take His laws and judgements and trample them underfoot, ignore then, even flaunt or ridicule them. He HAS sent judgement upon various peoples who ignore His laws.

        1. Tionico, you are right to make the distinction of the act over an unchosen feeling. I would like to add that Christ is the difference between death and life for that and all sins (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

      2. I would first off, good on you for using your bible to seek God’s will on the matter. I am particularly impressed in that you included James 1:9 in your list. This verse is selectively ignored by those who try to claim that Sodom was destroyed because of a lack of “hospitality.”

        Second, it may be time to give serious consideration to leaving this church. The first warning sign in your comment is that this couple is “co-pastoring” the church. please allow me to share some verses on the matter:

        1 Timothy 2:12: But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.
        1 Timothy 3:2-3: An (overseer, bishop, elder, pastor), then, must be above reproach, the HUSBAND of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach, not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money. (Emphasis added)
        1 Corinthians 14:34-35 : The women are to keep silent in the churches; for they are not permitted to speak, but are to subject themselves, just as the Law also says. If they desire to learn anything, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is improper for a woman to speak in church.

        As you can see from these verses, this couple is in willful disobedience of God’s clearly defined roles for men and women. The second warning is that they are progressives. The Bible is not, like our Constitution, intended to be reinterpreted in light of the current culture. It is to be understood in the grammatical/historical manner of the time in which it was delivered to us. It is an unchanging document, given by God so that we may abide in His grace as He intended. If you have concerns about how to find a good, Christ centered church, reply to my comment and I will try to help you.

        God Bless!

    6. “Yes, Mr. Vice President … it has moved me closer to God. … That’s the thing I wish the Mike Pences of the world would understand: That if you have a problem with who I am, your quarrel is not with me. …Your quarrel, sir, is with my creator.”
      And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
      I refuse to believe that God, Jesus, or the holy spirit are perverts!

      1. Yes, “male and female he created them, in His own image created He them. ”

        Without one of each being made one by His power, a random pair of people cannot, will not =l relfect His character, or nature.

        Pete Buttplug can no more have a male as his “husband” than a gelding horse can sire a foal. My pet chidken is far more likely to fly to the moon and back in a week than Pete can “marry” another male. .

        What part of ‘for a man to lie with another man as with a women is an abomination” can he not grasp?

        And no,I do not fear sodomites as a class, or even as individuals. I to fear FOR them, and for the future of our nation as we slowly allow the deception to take rule over us.

        1. Male and female were also commanded to “be fruitful and multiply.” Adam and Steve could not do that. Adam and Eve DID.

    7. What we are seeing in America is the decaying and fall of a nation. When people, in any walk of life, hold no law higher than their own there can be no justice. The bad news is that the laws written by man “evolve” and spiral down in decay. The good news is the laws of GOD never change. They are there for your health, happiness and wellbeing. What is righteous remain righteous and what is evil remains evil. There are laws that enslave man and there are laws that set men free. Either what we hold to be right and good and true IS right and good and true, for ALL mankind under GOD, or there is no hope for society, for justice or peace. Believe it or not, this nation is founded upon Biblical principals. We have been blessed for 250 years because we followed the laws of the LORD. But now, righteousness is considered hate speech. What has been clearly right and correct for 6,000 years is now shunned to promote the evil in people’s hearts.

      The entire BIBLE, from beginning to end, is all about choices and the reaping of those choices. Good things happen when you live up to righteous choices and bad things happen when you refuse to live up to righteous choices. Right and wrong are clearly revealed in the BIBLE. When evil choices are realized, it becomes as a depravity of that person’s mind. They make excuses for it, they blame their choices on someone else, they even claim that the LORD HIMSELF is responsible for making them the way they are. Are you really not in control of yourself? Maybe you need to be in a insane asylum. For the record, if you have children, you will notice it is in their minds that nothing is their fault. Why did you do that? I don’t know or it wasn’t me are common answers. Only when you admit you did/are doing something wrong is there opportunity to repent, to get past it, to grow, to live. The law of GOD convicts us and the law of GOD sets us free. The self righteous people who say that GOD made them the way they are have never meet HIM. Once you meet the LORD, you will realize how evil you are and how ACCOUNTABLE you are to the LORD. Are there people who are not tempted anywhere? NO. It’s all about choices. When a nation declares it legal to sacrifice children to mullok (abortion), destroys the family and promotes gay marriage (Sodom & Gomorrah) there IS going to be a reckoning. Just for the sake of prophesy, you might want to look up what happened there as it might be relevant to what is coming to America. See Mystery Babylon also.

      As seen in the BIBLE: murdering your children is evil, living a gay lifestyle is evil, not taking care of the elderly in your family is evil etc… Just as good things come from doing good and living right, bad things happen when evil is done and worse when evil becomes legally justified. You do not sacrifice your children to mullok and you don’t live with Sodom and Gomorrah without retribution. Again see mystery Babylon and what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah. As for being armed with the assault weapons of the day, you can start with Luke 22:36. If a man has no sword, let him sell his cloak and buy one. That latterly means sell your clothes that you have on and buy a sword-the assault weapon of the day. It wasn’t just anybody that said this–the LORD HIMSELF said it. That outranks anything thought up by man–ever.

      Almost anyone can see the direction this nation is going and can see what it will lead to. The fall of the republic into socialism will only lead to slavery, dependence on the government, poverty, starvation, depravity and death, with no hope and no way to fight back once the people are disarmed.

      If you are not armed, get that way. Get all the ammo and gear you can afford–you are going to need it. If you don’t know how or when to use your arms, get trained. If you can’t hit an “A” zone sized target @ 25 yards @ 1 sec. per shot, practice. Join a practical pistol league, better yet start doing 3 gun matches. You will quickly find how skilled or unskilled you are. If you want a better chance of survival, pay attention to your surroundings. Learn how to live, then teach your family. Your life, the lives of your family and friends depends on you, the skills you have learned and what you stand for or against. Arm up, carry on.

      1. “Good things happen when you live up to righteous choices and bad things happen when you refuse to live up to righteous choices.”

        Sounds kind of off kilter. Jesus lived a 100% perfectly righteous life, and ended up on a cross. I know a good number of folks living wonderfully giving, gracious, and caring lives that don’t have much more than pocket lint as a reward in this world. You probably do too, I’d think.

        As to reliance on weaponry, Jesus had much better weapons than we do. He could have called a legion of Angels to defend Him in his righteousness. Any single one of those Angels would consider the M1 Abrams to be no more a threat than a plastic squirt gun. To boot, all He had to do was simply cancel anyone in particular’s existence.

        Good thing He didn’t rise out of the tomb, alive again and p*ssed off, eh? Instead, He rose full of glory, grace, and gifting life.

        Jesus said “love your enemies, and pray for them that persecute you”. What part of that was unclear?

        Or did He mean “Once you’ve hit the A zone @1 shot per second, and your enemies are lying dead at your feet, make sure you love them and pray for their souls.”?

        I realize that we live in a real world, and there are reasons for being armed, don’t get me wrong. But there are times when one must lay down their life standing for the truth as well. They will be called back out of the grave.

        If you don’t believe that stuff, just kill ’em all and let God or Darwin sort them out.

    8. Es una vergüenza que un país conformado por inmigrantes de todo el mundo y con sus propios dioses autóctonos terminen adornado una carpintero zombi

      1. Claramente,para ti la verdad no importa. Creer como uno quiera está bien, todo es igual. Esta es una creyencia completamente falsa.

    9. So proud to see so many people on this page know the bible and the truth.
      I don’t like parts of the muslim religon but when I see our country going to hell like it is, it makes me wonder if we aren’t the devils children like they say My concern is, no man knoweth the hour and that it is neigh because we as a people are calling for it in our actions.
      Happy Easter and may God bless our country and it’s people.

    10. “Indeed, if the mayor’s lifestyle is moral, Christianity got it wrong for 20 centuries.”
      Nope. The mayor is totally wrong on this subject. As one political group once professed, “God said it, I believe it and that settles it”. Mayor Pete is definitely not God!

      Phil in TX

      1. GOD told us many thing in scripture, the majority of which has been poorly translated, misinterpreted, and ignored. God warned about the false preachers, the deceivers, that ALL men are liars, and ALL men are sinners. He told us what is necessary to have eternal life and what will happen to those who chose a life of immorality and sin. The doctrine of man does NOT in any way override GOD’s doctrine, and those who insist on claiming that they are Christian while knowingly and blatantly violating GOD’s laws are doomed. Scripture hasn’t changed since the day it was written, as GOD told us, and it will not change until after GOD comes and destroys all of the evil on earth. I hope that Mayor “buttpirate” enjoys his sinning enough that he can accept his eventual fate because GOD only forgives those who repent and believe in Christ. By today’s modern beliefs, GOD would be pro-life, a bigot, a racist, a homo- and Islamo-phobe, anti-semitic, pro-gun, a flat-earther, a climate denier, pro capital punishment, a chauvinist/sexist, and considering that Heaven has a wall and strict requirements to enter, he’s pro-build that wall!

      2. Phil, you said this:

        As one political group once professed, “God said it, I believe it and that settles it”.

        Sorry, you have it wrong. There is one part of that too many.

        God said it, THAT settles it. mY believing it does not settle a thing HIS Word is absolute and complete, whether I agree with Him or not. Pets Buttplubg does not agree with God’s Word, does that change His Word? Absolutely not. Heevan and earth SHALL pass away, but My Word will NEVER pass away. Every jot ant stroke shall be filfilled. Whether I agree with it or not. HE is no more subject to what WE think or want thanthe sun is dependent upon the earth.

      1. It amazes me how SCOTUS can “find” rights in The Constitution for things like gay marriage and abortion, but rights that are actually spelled out clearly seem to be questionable.

        1. @WP, I’m sure that you are aware that their “findings” are in accord with their progressive agenda. Have a good Easter, everyone.

      1. It is not hate to underastand that Pete’s chosen partner is prohibited by God in His word Don’t like it? Find a new god…. but it WON”T be the God who made the universe and thus has the authority to decide how things work on this here dirtball. Don’t like it? Make your own universe.

        Can’t do that? Then who are you to decide what goes down?

      2. Because someone does not agree with you does not mean that they hate you ! That’s a stretch on your part to justify your position. God and others love you in spite of your’s , mine or their sin . But it still is a sin . And others do not have to like it , or agree with it because of those that do choose to live that way or accept it as being normal and ok . Because if it was normal people would not be constantly expecting others to be accepting of it .

    11. I don’t believe homosexuals are born that way. But even if they were, we are a species have “Free Will” and the ability to choose whatever path that is presented to us to follow, or not. Any one of us could choose to be a criminal or not, even those who were “born into” a family of criminals who may have the genetic disposition (if that exists) towards criminal behavior. We have the ability to deny any the “temptation” presented to us at any time, good or bad. Just because you can do something, doesn’t mean you should. The fact that the media and society has allowed homosexuality to be presented as “normal” and has done their best to foster it, promote it, encourage it and even allow its proponents to indoctrinate children in public schools is why we are where we are today. Those who practice homosexuality are mentally ill and should be treated as such with treatment, counselling and assistance. Doing other wise is the same as condoning and encouraging any other mental illness (bi-polar disorder, schizophrenia, OCD, PTSD, etc.) as normal behavior. Encouraging any of those illnesses, much less recruiting for them would be unheard of and just as wrong. Abnormal behavior of any kind is abnormal. We are now seeing Pedophiles and other sexual deviates “jumping on the bandwagon” after seeing one sexual deviation being sanctioned and encouraged. It was inevitable, and the ones who approve of one deviation have no right to complain when other deviates demand their sickness be legitimized and approved.

      1. It’s exactly the same thing that happened with feminism and mixed “race” relationships. Both used to be against the law and they are both against GOD’s doctrine, but man has pushed it and created laws forcing us to accept it and now it is in EVERY TV show. Television is called programming for a reason!

        1. How is “Mixed Race” relationships against GOD’s doctrine? If you knew your BIBLE you would have noticed a famous Hebrew (Moses) married his second wife , which was a “Cushite” (south of Egypt : Ethiopia/Sudan) . She would have been a dark skinned woman and GOD approved that marriage. GOD even placed leprosy on Moses sister and brother, after they opposed the marriage. They then begged Moses to have GOD restore them and remove the disease. He petitioned GOD and the disease was lifted. No more in-law problems. Yes, I know all about the “marrying outside the faith” law. Jewish proselytes come in all colors and sizes. Funny thing, all Christians do as well.

    12. As it has been throughout history, man contorts Christianity either as justification to leave, disdain it or to justify current or desired behavior. Making Christianity in their own way removes their guilt. This we know, Christ accepted all but never condoned or was a cohort is the commission of sins. It other words Christ would not have baked the cake.
      This is immutable

    13. The church is greatly at fault for this. It began nearly a century ago with the acceptance of divorce and remarriage. This is just another milestone on the road to total apostasy.

      1. Much further than 25 years Brother. Read the Old Testament. God permitted divorce under certain conditions because of Man’s ways. Romans Ch.1 is a great source for an explanation of today’s moral decline.

        1. First of all, a century is 100 years, not 25!

          Secondly, you are correct that GOD did allow divorce in certain instances.

          To @Quatermain, this started much further back than one century. This has been going on since at least the formation of the catholic church; the last 500 years has seen the most significant changes! Many of the mistranslations of scripture, the misinterpretation, and the outright deceit have come from catholicism and judaism. The theories of evolution, feminism, mixing negros and whites, accepting of false religions, sexual freedom, etc. have all become the norm, supported by man’s laws, and accepted (by most), yet they ALL violate the word of GOD! It will contiu=nue until the tribulation begins – that is told to us in prophesy.

          MGGA – Make GOD Great Again!
          MAGA – Make America Great Again! and Make AOC Go Away!
          MACA – Make America Christian Again!
          *All wishful thinking!

      1. Those who adhere to God’s written word are Christian. Professing the Son as Savior and God’s son, Jesus Christ redeemed our sinful souls upon the cross. However, it is as Paul said when referring to false Christians, ” they are from us but not of us”. Christianity is a name given to the above stated belief. The word of God, the Holy Bible, is wherein you will find your answer.

        1. And yet even true Christians ignore or disbelieve many doctrines that GOD gave us in scripture because they completely believe what man has established as lawful –evolution, feminism, and mixing of blacks and whites lead the way.

      2. If you think of Chrisianity as a religion, then none are right. Christianity is not about liturgy and rules, it is a relationship. A relationship built first on repentance and forgiveness and then secured with trust, faithfulness, mercy, and mostly love.
        The church is the spotless bride of Christ. Find that church and you will have found the real treasure on Earth.

      3. the one that is lived out according to what is written in God’s Word. Any that does not abide by that book and what is found inside it is NOT “cristianity”.
        He said “if you love ME, keep MY commandments;

    14. Jesus Himself made it plain in Mathew 5:18:

      “For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.”

    15. In all honesty there are people out there who are homosexual with out a choice. It may not be normal but is a natural occurrence.
      With the trend of coming out and flaunting it I can say I know, and know of many but am yet to find one I would describe as 100% mentally adjusted. Out of those I know or know of there are many ‘”Recreational” homosexuals who practice by choice. I don’t know how God will feel about these but I doubt he is the kind of person to hold it against those born with the abnormality of of homosexuality.

      1. No one is born homosexual, just as no one is born a murderer or an atheist! There are many influences that cause these people to act on their desires, and western civilization has been the biggest influence.

        1. Uh… by that logic, is anyone born heterosexual? Just wondering how you approach that, not looking to troll.

      2. Foolish Nonsense. God made no one homosexual. Claiming god did it or blaming god for it is bearing false witness against God. Personally choosing sin and perversion cannnot be blamed on God. YOU chose it , it is YOUR poor lifestyle choice, and YOU alone will be judged for it unless you turn from it.!

    16. Jesus spoke of this:

      Matthew 15:8-9 NASB
      ‘This PEOPLE HONORS ME WITH THEIR LIPS,BUT THEIR HEART IS FAR AWAY FROM ME. [9] ‘BUT IN VAIN DO THEY WORSHIP ME,TEACHING AS doctrines THE PRECEPTS OF MEN.'”

      Religious institutions have inserted human tradition into the worship of God. They have then been able to win over the sheep in their flock to their own desires. Then by presenting a socially acceptable doctrine they close the doors to haven not just to themselves but also to their flock.

      Matthew 23:13 NASB
      “But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites, because you shut off the kingdom of heaven from people; for you do not enter in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.

      They have confused the masses into thinking that they have the keys to God’s House. But just as in your own home you control who enters and who does not, so does God.

      … Insert here the parable of the 10 virgins …

      Matthew 25:11-13 NASB
      Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ [12] But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’ [13] Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.

      They can make up all the rules and special situations they wish to claim that they are acceptable to God and welcome in His House, but in the end their lies and twisted doctrine will leave them outside the doors to the Kingdom.

      Matthew 7:21 NASB
      “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father who is in heaven will enter.

      They believe the lie and they CANNOT HEAR THE TRUTH.

      John 8:43-47 NASB
      Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. [44] You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. [45] But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. [46] Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? [47] He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”

      Sometimes it is just that simple. But that does not let you off the hook either. Your Faith must be a real and active faith. You cannot enter into the Kingdom yourself if you do not produce the fruits of the Spirit.

      You must read and glean these truths for yourself. Just as with the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, you must learn for yourself what is true and what is not true. To sit by idle is to be just as guilty as those who stood by and watched the Son of God be murdered.

      You carry sin. You need to be saved. You must learn how.

      1. You are 100% correct. Problem is that there are many doctrines in scripture that man has already indoctrinated the people (especially many Christians) to disbelieve. Evolution, mixing of negros and whites, feminism (woman in authority over man), etc.

      1. My father always referred to gay men as “Rump Rangers.” Debased reprobates is probably a more accurate title.

    17. Well expressed. Many today want buffet religion. Quote the scriptures that you like. Then ignore or claim irrelevant those that tramp on your toes. America seems to have turned into “one nation under a self-made God with with liberty for every non-Christian belief you can come up with.”

    18. God made adam and eve.
      Not adam and steve.
      Let that homo in deeper in politics,the muslems come here in droves ,more in politics and we will see a fire from within.remember muslems behead gays n women first.then whos left to run our country.let that sink in

      1. What? Good grief. Another sodomite as a potential POTUS. What a joke. How can this person create and make fruit? Since when is the anus a sex organ?
        Biology 101 equal FAILURE. for PETE.
        One word is so DE-Script and hyphenated, goes like this:” Dumb-ass.”

        1. God, who Christ acknowledges as sovereign, had quit a bit to say about it, All negative. I hope that you aren’t searching for justification of a way of life that is an abomination in the sight of God and Christ. As for Christ, He came not to judge but offer salvation and eternal life. Judgement comes later. Are you saved?

        2. Wrong. As is clearly illustrated numerous times, for even dummies to see, God and Jesus differed on NOTHING. Try actually reading the bible, instead of listening to homosexual sinners who would love to see you condemed to hell with them.

        3. It is foolish to try this split theory between God and Jesus. Jesus never disavowed anything of God. Try reading the bible. Jesus said in John 10:30 “I and the father are one.”

    19. God gave us the commandments. He laid out his directions in the Holy Bible. WE have the RESPONSIBILITY to CHOOSE. God gave us that RESPONSIBILITY. God WILL be the final Judge.

    20. Mayor Pete knows Marxism but he surely does not know the Bible. Man and woman were created to reproduce. If you have the equipment of a man you are not to be having sexual relations with a man. Has he never heard of Sodom and Gomorrah? The bastions of Old Testament sin and evil? Lott’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt for looking back at the cities, going against God’s orders to not look back. God sent Fire and Brimstone down to destroy them and their ways, they are doomed eternally as is anyone engaging in this type of behavior. He needs mental help.

    21. That Governor is doing the work of the Devil Himself. God doesn’t make you gay/lesbian you choose at some point and time in your life to become like that. The Bible clearly states that a man shall leave his Mother and Father for a Woman. Not some one of thee same sex. Those who choose that life style have condemned themselves to HELL unless they Repent of their SIN and CHANGE their life. Today’s society is so torn up and confused that it’s sickening. And to those who BELIEVE ABORTION is OK ARE ALSO WORKERS OF SATAN. ONLY GOD GIVES LIFE OR DEATH for he mows you before your even conceived in your Mother’s womb. What this COUNTRY AND WORLD NEEDS IS A SPIRITUAL AND ETHNICAL REVIVAL AND CLEANSING. TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY FOR HIS WORD SHALL REIGN TRUE FOR EVER.

      1. And yet YOU yourself probably have accepted the doctrines of man over GOD too and don’t even realize it. GOD warned us of mixing negros and whites, he warned of woman in authority over man, he warned of not properly punishing criminals, etc. yet the majority of Christians have accepted man’s doctrines. This is why GOD warned that few will enter the narrow gate!

    22. “Mayor Buttplug” is NO Christian, and God’s commandments (which are a representation of Him) do NOT change, EVER.
      Lev. 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”
      Lev. 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

      God does not make people homosexuals, Satan does, by infecting their minds. But if people persist in living in sin, God won’t force them to behave. He will let them have their way:
      “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:24-32)

      This weekend, let’s remember that Jesus died and paid the penalty for every wrong ever committed by anyone. This makes today, Good Friday, the most important day of the year: This is the day that the Prince of all Creation redeemed an unholy and condemned race because God SO LOVED US that He sent His one and only son to save us from our sin!! All you have to do is repent of your sins and ask Jesus to forgive you, plead for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, and it shall be done. Choose TODAY whom you shall serve! As for me and my house, I shall serve GOD.

      1. Tell it Brother Flatt. I didn’t want to peck the keys long enough to say as you did. Mathew Ch. 24 has the same message. These false Christians that are indignant because homos aren’t accepted will one day face their hypocrisy.

    23. It’s almost like someone wrote a book about this. Turns out someone did. It is titled: “Slouching Towards Gomorrah.”

    24. Mayor Pete is happy living in his sin. While it is for God to condem the man, it is ok to hate the sin itself. I feel pity for those Christians who have blinded themselves with their own self centered view of God’s Love and God’s Justice. Abortion is Murder! Homosexuality is a sin!
      These things are clear to anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear. Let’s use just a quick example to illustrate the point. If every Mother of every Daughter who has ever had an abortion, agreed with abortion as a form of birth control, there would be no abortion clinics because none of the clients would have ever been born.
      Finally, if homosexuality were suddenly universally accepted and practiced, the human race would become extinct within a generation or two. Gay sex, and Murder acceptable as Christian principals? God must both weep and be very very angry at the possibility. I sincerely pray the this self delusional fool, will accept Christ, repent his sins, and turn from them, or he is truly lost.

    25. Thank you,Pat for saying what must be said!
      No, I should say – shouted, VERY, VERY loudly, for if those who profess a desire to be obedient followers of God do not speak out, shout out, what is right in God’s eyes alone they will become less and less regarded until real moral truth will no longer exist.
      God/Jesus are Real! They are as alive as you and me. I pray that you find what Real Truth is.
      Celebrate His resurrection on Sunday!

      1. I have yet to understand how the multitude of professing Christians declare through celebration Friday as the day of Christ’s crucifixtion and Sunday as the day of His resurrection, with bunnies and eggs somehow related? So much for the parable of Jona and the whale as Christ taught.

        Probably just me, as I don’t understand how these same professing Christians declare through celebration his birth as the 25th of December, the cutting down of trees, bringing into homes and decorating, even though He never gave any significance to this event either, other than saying pagans act as such.

        Yep, probably just me!

          1. You will notice that ALL of the celebrations that Christians have to worship Christ/GOD are combined with a pagan ritual. Those rituals are specifically created to represent a “good feeling” which has helped to get Christians to accept it, and if they don’t participate, their children and society view them as being odd. Christmas, Easter, Sunday, etc. are not viewed as celebrations of our creator, but a celebration of giving and getting, and “partying” instead of worshiping.
