I’ve not been inclined to respond to the stuff that TA has been posting on his site lately, because it’s frankly not been worth replying to. Today, that changes, as he’s posted a few things that I feel are quite interesting, and worth exploring as a case study into what Christian fundamentalism looks like.
“In short, a man who was about to be charged with violent crimes against defenseless minors was free to roam the Penn State campus, as he pleased,” the report said. “Reviewers determined that Penn State’s University Park campus was a beehive of activity for children, yet the University failed to issue an emergency notification when senior officials knew of the forthcoming charges against Sandusky.”
The American justice system declares a man innocent until proven guilty thus telling students that a man is about to be accused and charged of potential crimes is allowing the man to be seen as guilty before h was proven so. Christians are to stand up for justice no matter the nature of the crime and it is not just to allow anyone to be treated as guilty before they are actually proven to be guilty.
The real issue here is not the concept of innocent until proven guilty, but rather, ensuring that in cases where serious crimes are being investigated, the alleged offender cannot be given carte blanche to wander freely, especially where children are concerned. There is a duty of care here, and speaking as a parent, I would want to be aware.
Conservative Christians are speaking out against Texas Pastor Brandon Hatmaker and his wife, Jen, the stars of an HGTV reality series, for claiming that the Bible affirms gay marriage, saying the couple are “100 percent false” and leading people astray from the Gospel.
Earlier this week, Brandon Hatmaker issued a lengthy Facebook post saying that he 100 percent agrees with his wife when it comes to the belief that monogamous same-sex marriages can be considered holy.
We will add our voice to this as well. The Bible is very clear that if a man lies with another man as a man lies with a woman it is an abomination. A man lies with a woman in a monogamous marriages thus even a similar union between same sex partners is wrong,sin and an abomination
Thankfully, the Bible is not how we derive laws that provide equality and equity in society. Don’t believe in same-sex marriage? Consider it a sin? You have the right to believe that. You don’t have the right to decide that for everyone else.
#3. http://www.christianpost.com/news/georgia-drops-demands-for-pastor-hand-over-bible-sermons-now-wants-minister-credentials-salary-171256/An FRC blog said that Walsh is still being asked to provide his credentials as minister; proof that he has served with the Seventh-day Adventist denomination; all contracts he has ever had with the Church; and details on how much he has been compensated for his sermons.
We need a Christian political party that is actually Christian to set the example for the secular world to follow. Christians cannot be the light unto a dark world in the area of politics if they continue to let the deceived, blind secular world lead the way on how politics should be done. Governing others demands the involvement of God not evil.
Reconciling Ministries Network, an organization advocating for the UMC to change it’s Book of Discipline to find that homosexuality is compatible with Christian doctrine and allow for non-celibate homosexuals to be ministers, released a statement Sunday saying that the Judicial Council’s decision “was expected.”Loving God with all your heart, soul and mind does not mean one changes God’s rules simply because some people do not want to obey God’s rules. Loving God with all your heart, soul and mind means ones gives up their sins for him. Obviously, the LGBTQ community ignore this fact as they continue to try to hold on their sin and be considered part of God’s kingdom. Love seeks not its own Paul tells us but again the LGBTQ community ignore this facet of love.
If they truly love God they would do everything they could to get rid of their sexual sins and not force the church or God to change in order to accommodate their selfishness.
#5 http://www.christianpost.com/news/christian-bakers-labeled-homophobic-refusing-make-gay-marriage-cake-say-faith-god-unshakable-171104/He added that those who call them “homophobic” don’t grasp their argument.Oh the Horror! I am going to be called homophobic if I do not support the selfish, spoiled LGBTQ community and its demands. No one is afraid of homosexuality the LGBTQ community and its supporters need to stop distorting the issue and calling people false names. They are unrepentant sinners bound for hell and they do not deserve the political and legal protection they are receiving beyond being able to work, rent and buy food. We may have missed a couple of other things but the LGBTQ des not have the right to use the courts or elected officials to bully those who disagree with them. That is more of a hate crime than refusing to bake a cake.
