The nation is cursed.
And the first place the Lord will visit will be the churches. To whom much is given much is required.
The world dont know what is an offense to God - but the church does. He's coming with a fan in His hand and will be sweep the chafe out of the Church before He comes for His bride.
And remember Hes marrying a Bride - not a Groom.
The Groom will marry a Bride and the Bride will marry her Groom.
I'm gonna go off subject a lil' bit because I think some folks are scared of same sex marriage because of children & how will the children be raised? I'm a heterosexual, I don't have children & I'm not married, but I think the act of birth & sharing that experience between a male & a female is the most natural act of God & the highest blessing of God. That's all I know about the gift & power of reproduction of sharing a life, not a burden. The gift & the power of having a life together is special, very special. Don't get me wrong, adoption is very, very beautiful & I'm not saying adoption isn't a blessing, I guess I'm going the long route in trying to explain my point.
Also, I don't see how females aren't offended by males who think their females. Or could replace a female in raising a child as far as adoption. To me, you can't replace a female role in raising a child, first of all u never experienced what's it like to be a female. I don't care if u think u were born a female & u think u are a female inside. No man knows what's it like to be a female from birth to giving birth & everything in between. Men that's been victims of harsh crimes, I'm not trying to disrespect u, but being violated or going through other harsh abuses doesn't mean u understand a female physiological changes or biologically changes. I'm speaking especially of the ova, men u don't have one. Sexual reproduction & fertilization, the endocrine system men don't have. The follicular phase, ovulation, luteal phase & proliferative phase, and secretory phase, men don't have. Men don't have a chromatin of eggs. So men who think they're females are just characters. There is no scientific background to being gay other than feeling. Men who are bisexual or gay like the feeling of another man. Women who are lesbians like the feeling of another female. It's all sexual attraction, the allure, the secret, the sexual feeling, but let's face it, there is no scientific background to it other than the fact that a very, very, very, very, very large group of very intelligent bisexuals, gays & lesbians tried to psychologically understand their psyche so they wrote a lot of books about it throughout history.
I'm not bisexual, gay or homophobic & I'm not gay bashing so don't listen to me & don't make up rumors. I seen what powerful secret society organizations can do. I seen what they did to a few Republicans who chose to gay bash. I'm not acting like I have a clue how bisexuals, gays & lesbians attack. Let's not forget about family members who are lesbians, bisexuals & gays & how they could be offended & attack. They can & will attack & when they do, before u know it, about 7 States know your face & heard the rumors, before u know what hit u. It's not like I can call a press conference. Lesbians are the deadliest, they are extremely affective.
Bro. your last sentence seems like you have fear and God does not give us the spirit of fear. Ephesian 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: We MUST use the word of God, we MUST start speaking the WORD of God on this mess. God is not pleased and Newview...you are rightly dividing the TRUTH which is the Word.
North Carolina did the right thing...they know about the flood God sent to certain sections of the Carolina's about 10-12 years ago. Wiped out several WHOLE towns that were whoremonging, practicing witchcraft etc. The nation will crumbled if those WHO ARE CALLED BY HIS NAME don't do what He said. 2 Chron 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. It is too many leaning to their own understanding and feelings and putting God 2nd and their ways 1st. People are only acknowledging God when things get too tough for them and they have not other choice but to call on Him. It is a sad day on earth and the angels are crying,

Jones, your wrong. I been isolated, set-up by the federal government & there was no fear in my heart, ask anyone that could tell u. I'm showing respect in the power of numbers. Frankly, if u beef with me, you're beefing with the one & I think I got the odds on my side. Most folks are blinded by currency & status. So let's face it, if a prestigious member of your Church, sorority or fraternity brother or sister that paid a large amount of due money said, "U see that guy over there?" "His name is Anthony Smith & I saw him doing this or I heard he was or I heard he did that." What ever they said would be the true in your ears. Fear is a human emotion everybody have, it's how u control your fear that make u stronger. Don't talk to me about fear, I been through too much outside of the norm & I still shine through. This is not war, I'm merely showing respect to the power of numbers. Numbers with a great amount of influence. It has nothing to do with FEAR. U see they got the President ear.
Bro. Anthony, I was not trying to be right or wrong when I replied, nor was it meant to be offensive when I chided about your last sentence. It was just as you stated...I said fear, you said respect....LOL I used fear in as in reverence, what manner of level of reverence, respect or fear....not in the scared since, that is why I gave you the scripture. See, I don't fear, reverence or respect numbers when it is against God, because I know without a shadow of doubt 1 can send 10,000 to flight. I know without a doubt, feverent prayer of 1 righteous availeth much. So numbers, position nor status influence me and I can say that with conviction. I try to lean not to my understanding but tap into that power that was given me and know that many can stand, but whom shall I fear? I walk by faith and not by sight literally. I am one who is ready to stand no matter what. I am one who knows for God I stand and for God I will die. I fear, reverence, respect no man that tries to influence me to do what is contrary to the word of God. Some call it self righteous, I call it OBEDIENCE, because I fear, reverence and respect God more than man. Please don't let the words that I type attack you, because they are not meant to do so, it is just me standing on my beliefs and the power that is within me.
In Love Sister Denise
I understand what you're trying to say, but what you're trying to say has no relevance to my life. When someone can put money quarterly or annually, say 200,000 or more, to attack u, plus a private investigator. Your faith may never be broke, but there is no Church on this GLOBE that don't respect MONEY!
You still don't get it, Whatever is born (spawned) of fleshly concerns is only temporal or (corruptible.)
Big Money????? In the Collection Basket???? As Peter told the magician/sorcerer. YOUR MONEY PERISH WITH YOU. God is waiting to set the captives free if one would only ask. (captive to drugs, porn, alcohol, homosexuality.) Its God who says its bondage, not me or the church!!!! I pray you will only ask him.
But God's law and righteousness CANNOT BE held hostile/or high-jacked by the wealth of gays trying to buy their way into HIS right standing, . .Sodom and Gomorrah grew bountifully and prospered in their iniquity. But they were lovers of themselves and pleasure, not God. God would have spared them if he had been able to find 10 righteous among them. The charred ash and cinders of those two great cities stands today. Google it.
What is born of the spirit is spirit, (which reveals the heart,mind, love and word of God) so we can live pleasing him. If you want his saving grace to deliver you, just pray and ask. The blood of Christ and 'its delivering power is FREE OF CHARGE!
Your eternal soul is relevant TO YOU in the next life. You are made in his image, a triune being/creation - body, soul and spirit. Our flesh needs to be denied, its corruptible and at war with the spirit of God because of sin. Your soul and spirit will exist forever, . .somewhere. God wants no one to perish. Not even gays.
So I won't indulge in high-minded, endless debates if the fallen state of an unsaved soul is o.k. to God in today's reprobate society; whether they are gay or straight. Nor if they ought to be good enough for God in his own house and under his own rules.
I want to call you a brother in Christ and fellowship. It just doesn't work unless you're "born again." We all took that step, you can, too. His hand is out - just accept his saving grace.
I love Christ and can talk about him forever. The salvation and joy he gives is complete and euphoric. But if you just want to bicker or rail, then let's just not even converse. If we continue under that scenario then I become a fool.
I don't think u get it & I can see we are off subject again. I wasn't born in Bethlehem of Judea & never been nowhere near there. Have u? I don't even think I could get a passport or Visa to visit Judea. My eternal soul is relevant? Tell me something I don't already know, but I never been to eternity, have u? I never known a self righteous person that didn't love having money. I was born in America & in America money is Power, cash is King & there are power in numbers.
Back to my point of the topic.
Watching one of my fav. movies the other day & one of the scenes had me cracking up & back to this topic. Look at 06:50 minutes into video of one of the scenes in Oliver Stone movie JFK. Jim Garrison is at the Airport & he's in the bathroom & it's clear that it's a set-up about to take place to make him look gay or bisexual. It reminds me of Republican Larry Craig. If u remember Larry Craig was the prominent conservative politician who had a record of anti-gay legislation. I don't know if Larry is or was Gay or a bisexual, but I know his career was destroyed after the airport bathroom incident. People are overly indicted everyday in the judicial system & they usually plead to a lesser charge to have the rest of the charges dropped. They do it to just get it over with, some plead guilty to a lesser charge because they been sitting in the county prison for months before they could get a second or third court date & don't want to take a chance of a jury trial. Craig told the public that the officer misconstrued his actions, that he was not involved in any inappropriate conduct, and had failed to seek legal counsel: "In hindsight, I should not have plead guilty. I was trying to handle this matter myself quickly and expeditiously." In an August 28, 2007, press conference in Boise, Idaho, Craig said: I am not gay. I never have been gay.... In June, I overreacted and made a poor decision. I chose to plead guilty to a lesser charge in hopes of making it go away.... Please let me apologize to my family, friends and staff and fellow Idahoans for the cloud placed over Idaho. I did nothing wrong at the Minneapolis airport. I did nothing wrong, and I regret the decision to plead guilty and the sadness that decision has brought on my wife, on my family, friends, staff and fellow Idahoans. Larry Craig career was destroyed & he was a prestigious financially secure elected official, I don't know if Larry was set-up, but the scene in the movie was sort of like his life. It's hard to believe that a prestigious elected official would go into a public restroom anyone could walk into, an airport restroom anyone could walk into & proposition a stranger for sex.
. . . . Endless . . . debate , , , not. . . . . happening . . . . . . . anymore.
