The things you mentioned are not even a point in christianity, when you read the list of the things that God hates remember that homosexuality isn't the only thing, do you ever hear a sermon on gossiping? No because everone gossips at some point. Do you ever hear a sermon on gluttony? No, because we have all over eaten at some time. Preachers like to point out the things that they don't do, or they pick on the women and lay on them all kinds of regulations.
The point is we are not God and cannot be God. That's why Jesus took our sins upon himself and died....so that we could live in our sinful state. Now
if we faithe in Jesus God sees us as just like Jesus...we know we're not but God sees us that way, so we pass out from under His wrath and
We are not to change our habits and lifestyles when we become christians we just trust God to so the changing, and then in hindsight we will notice
that we no longer do certain things...not because we consciously made a decision not to do a certain thing. If we try to do it ourself then the focus
is taken off of Christ and His power to change us and the focus is put on our selves...that's when we get into trouble !
Too many preachers out there are not teaching the God of the Bible, or the Christ of the Bible...they only speak of His love and compassion...never
His anger, or raging temper at those who would demean God and His house and His words. The language Jesus used when speaking to the Jewish elite of
the day were pretty strong words for those days.
If Jesus were to come back here today he would not be accepted in many churches.
He treated women like they had never been treated, He gave them as much importance as He did the men. Mary was commended for spending her time
listening to Him, while Martha worked. Jesus wants us to pay attention to Him, not trying to work at being a christian.
If you have a relationship with someone, you know alot about them...when forming friendships you find out about their likes and dislikes, their
history, where they came from, what's important to them...it's the same with God, too many people want the short version of who He is, they don't
want to take the time to get to know Him.
If you're looking for that relationship on the net you're looking at the wrong place...too many funkamentalists out there that want to harp on you,
sayin, Jesus saves but...you gotta do this and you gotta do that. Forget all that and just get to know Jesus.
The only preacher I found in all my years of searching is Dr. Gene Scott...he's not out to impress anyone, as a matter of fact he turns many people
off with his no BS kind of teaching....that's what I like, Honesty and respect for God's word with no gimmicks
