"I do agree that the church overlooks certain sins and harp more on others, but please understand that NO ONE ON THIS EARTH HAS A HEAVEN OR HELL TO PUT US IN."
I agree. I have rarely known church folks to use the Bible to condemn themselves...only others.
"don't forget lying, gossipping, gluttony (lots of biggums in that church), false prophets, materialism, selfishness, lack of obedience to Christ's commands, racism, sexism, voting for abortion,, women seeking and usurping men, etc, etc......why leave the other undone? Only those things we personally view as "sin" will be exorcised, I mean delivered...."
I agree. It is interesting that their own personal sins don't need to be "exorcised", or so called "delivered." They just use Grace as a license to continue in their sins.
"Does this mean thats demons need not be cast out any more because all people have issues, including the Ministers as well?"
Well if their "issues" were supposedly caused by demons as well, how can demons cast out demons?
"Is "you aint perfect either" a valid excuse to say why "I" do not need to come out of my mess or why demonic activity shouldn't cease within my life?
Is any sin excusable? If so, which ones and why?
Every Christian sinner I know have managed to justify and excuse his or her own sins. If you can justify and excuse other sins, why can't the homosexuals do the same?
What makes this sin worst than others?
Besides according to Jesus:
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast
out the mote out of thy brother's eye.
"Scripture is very clear on the steps to take..these steps, if taken will not only humble the person but show Yah your commitment to him and not wanting to live in your sin....People want to go around supposidly casting out demon, but they themselves have no power"
This is what Jesus said about people who are not doing the Will of His Father, but claiming to cast out demons:
21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works?
23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
