I have not posted on this thread in some time now. Actually I have not posted on ATS in some years until recent.
I want to make some points to further clarify what I stated in previous posts and on this topic.
From the Biblical standpoint ..there is no instruction in the Word for God's people to define themselves by their sexuality or sexual orientation. It
does not exist ..both Olde and New Testaments. The obvious pattern and lesson is for God's people to define themselves by His Word and Way..not by
the worlds beliefs and non standards.
Never do you find any such instruction for God's people to define themselves by thier sexuality ..male or female.
For the history in both Biblical and secular records is that the nations surrounding Ancient Israel were already doing this very thing...defining
themselves by their sexuality ..particularly around their holidays and festivals.
You have to dig to find this history...but it can be found. It just will never be taught for what it is in most public schools through college
This is the very thing that Ancient Israel got caught up into when they were in fact instructed not to do this kind of thing..do as the nations
surrounding them did. For by this they defiled the land...and were eventually punnished for this disobedience with the loss of the land.
Second point..about the Crusades and Inquisition. The Christian doctrine is to come out from amongst them and be ye separate..to Separate from . There
is no such instruction to go after non believers in this manner. This is in fact what the pagans did through out history. The Catholic Church was
violating church instruction in doing this..meaning they had lost the candlestick...they were functioning as a counterfeit church..against church
doctrine..if they were in fact ever a christian church.
Christians are to separate from the unclean thing. The world pattern is to get everyone to mix in the unclean thing and glory in it.
One of todays more popular subtilties and distortions..and is in its own merits..or demerits is to reverse everything..to label those who do not want
to mix in the unclean thing as haters. This is standard issue censorship today..it is also guilt programming or a control mechanism..while they try to
teach and preach tolerance.
I am not into censorship..which is where government is going with this kind of thing..while government itself becomes part and parcel of the
abomination and going privily after Christians. This is becoming more and more obvious today verses back in 2007 and 2008 when this thread opened.
Another point needing to be made is that concerning history and persecution ....and this is hardly known by both Christians and non christians...and
expecially never taught in public schools or on the History/Hitler channel.
This concerns the understanding of "Democide" or death by ones own government ...death by democracy.
In this wiki article concerning R J Rummels study..you find this down about 2/3rds of the way down the article
His research shows that the death toll from democide is far greater than the death toll from war. After studying over 8,000 reports of
government-caused deaths, Rummel estimates that there have been 262 million victims of democide in the last century. According to his figures, six
times as many people have died from the actions of people working for governments than have died in battle.
What you learn , once you learn to think outside the box of what attempts to pass for excellence today, is that history is hardly taught by and to
most people today next to the significance of it.
What this means is that more people have been killed in the last hundred years and at a faster rate than in the thousands of years before. This is in
a time of intellect, wisdom, intelligence, enlightenment. Yet there have been more deaths by government than in war...secular...reasonable government
staffed with educated people.
Chief among these governments has been the Atheist/Ungodly governments of reason and logic. I speak here of the Communist governments.
Let this be a warning to you people who can still think for yourselves and are not easily swayed by popular causes.
For what do you find heavily in the Homosexual movement...anti God unbelievers ..people of logic and reason.
My point in all of this is to be very careful of what you think is history for a great portion of our understanding and knowledge of history is
missing...and not accidently so.
I am not speaking here against sexuality per se...
I am speaking against stupid...and down right ignorance.
For people/proper human beings are much much more than sex and sexuality. Much much more.
But if we know so little secular history and also little Biblical history..what else is left..but to become base animals.
Just remember ..base animals are more easily controlled and lead to vote and conduct themselves in predictable and controllable manners. Thinking
people who can think for themselves ..can think outside the box of whorish politics and what passes for excellence today are not so easily lead or
Oh..by the way..this sex and sexuality thing is as much a hetero thing as it is a homosexual thing. For the heteros are being equally bombarded by it
daily ...if not more so by the media and poltics/public education ..to define themselves by sex and sexuality. By being good predictable,
controllable, malleable consumers/voters..and never thinking outside the box...even unto consuming themselves/each other.
Who pays for and finances public education today??
Once again..thinking people or human beings are much much more than sex and sexuality. Base animals are not.
