Matthew 22:37-40 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and greatest commandment. And thh second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Amen
Maybe you should just read the Bible's NT instead of preaching your doctine of hate to fellow born again Christians!
Romans 3:19-26- Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in his sight for by the law is the knowledge of sin. But now the righteous of God without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; even the righteousness of God which is by the faith of Jesus Christ, unto all and upon all them that believe ( John 3:16- WHOSOEVER BELIEVETH) ; for there is no difference for ALL HAVE SINNED AND COME SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD; being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jusus; whom God hath set forth to be propitiation through faith in his blood (Romans 10:9-10) TO DECLARE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS THAT ARE PAST....
So, I have to ask you two scholars- If the Bible says WHOSOEVER, are you saying that there is an exception to this verse? That homosexuals are exempt? If so, then you are the one denying the power of the blood of Christ to redeem mankind from the sins of mankind and the sin that every single person is born into. If so, you are denying Christ.
You are denying any person that has confessed Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior as being a Christian, and frankly, I would not want to be you at the Judgement of God when he asks, "So, Why didn't you love all of my children?" (Acts 10:1-33- verse 15 states: What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.) I would continue, but I don't have time to teach you the full redemption rights we have received: Redemption- to buy back with a price (the blood of Christ as the final Passover Lamb), Justification- just as if you have never sinned, Santification- to set apart from sin, Righteousness- to be right before God.
Just like my rights as an American citizen, I will stand on my rights as a believer in Christ and there is nothing you can say that will change this fact!
The mayor did lie. He has his own agenda & no one but his cronies & their goals matter!! I say we recall him.
You can include many of us 40 somethings as well...
Rev. Broadbent, a question or two if I may please.
When the Bible teaches that "lying with mankind as with womankind" is not a good thing (OT), or when Paul writes to the early church stating the same thing, how do you reconcile the endorsement of same sex marriages?
Does your church pick and choose the teachings of the Bible that it likes, ignoring the others?
Do you just choose to ignore the teachings? Perhaps that's the same question.
Help me understand.
Ben has articulated perfectly the create your own God (he refers to 'their God') theology of the progressive nothing much matters church of personal affirmation, not the revealed truth in Jesus and scripture (neither referred to in his article) of classical orthodox Christianity.
Remember Ben came here with a live in girlfriend who a year later became his wife, so his values have a certain flexibility and his own life is legitimized by the even more problematic view of marriage and relationships he advocated.
Perhaps he has simply never experienced the joy and gifts associated with living on God's terms instead of his own...but wow to those who lead folks astray.
Manitou there is something in the Spring Water is a good place to do all this...
Certainly a gay perspective that leaves out so much of the road to blessing that which needs therapy it is stunning.
A victory for disordered love, but not for the stability of the family, the safety of children, the moral ordering of society...just perversion run amuck.
What other sideline churches in Colorado Springs will be doing these blessings?
The real estate and development people have long been in control of this town...which is why we have water restrictions, over-development with no compensatory costs or fees for infrastructure, pure profit for the Broadmoor crowd.
This city has been mismanaged since Bob Isaac stepped down as city manager.
The mayor is living in denial about the true city demographic, council decisions are controlled by the new housing/development types, and no one seems to be capable of hiring people who have the spunk, skills, and ideas to stand up and make a difference. The growth in the use of consultants is a clear indicator that the dike is leaking and only stopgap measures are being taken.
The city's future is in question. Will it sink further into decay or become a thriving metropolis? That is the challenge to our current city leadership. My money is on the former.
Milligan is a far left whack job who is trying to recreate the city to be godless and valueless, she is anti-family and anti-religion, so of course she is not 'at the table'...we are not that sort of community, nor do we want to be...it is the path to hell.
As my experience as a young professional who also has grown up in this city, this city will always be full of corrupt good ole boys who never want to change or grow. The only hope for the youth who live in this dead end town is to move to Denver. I lived there briefly and it was so much better. The job situation is better, the people are friendlier, there's more to do up there, I feel safer up here (unlike here), there's open minded people unlike here, and the women are mega babes and aren't unreasonably stuck up like here. In fact I want to move back to Denver. This town gives me the creeps how backwards it is. Definitely more negatives than positives if you live here, especially if you are normal and college educated and not in the military.
There are contaminated sites all over this city. Doesn't anyone worry about the dust that blows off of "Gold Hill Mesa" into Old Colorado City? Our city's children are breathing that.... Or that our newest hospital is built on top of a landfill?
The Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing (HCPF) should be ashamed of themselves, the very problems that are occurring now were warned about by advocates last year http://www.joshuawinkler.com/MSB_Concerns.…. The Medical Services Board, the Governor appointed committee that approves Medicaid rules in Colorado, asked HCPF to stop using the tool at their April 12, 2013 meeting but the dep't refused. HCPF is mis-interpreting or over extending the federal requirements on documenting "medical necessity". Call HCPF, 303-866-3513, and the Governor's office, 303-866-2471, to voice your concerns.
I would not take children to America the Beautiful Park to play in the playground based on the test results for the one soil sample we took there. There are definitely carcinogens in the soil . I personally observed many clouds of dust spewing into the park during the demolition project.
Oh Please! This is child abuse.
Hey what do you call 1000 (city) lawyers at the bottom of the sea? A good start. Kat and Don should keep digital recorders on their person at all times. Anytime a city official comes by, hit record.
Fourth Grader's Gay Marriage Essay Goes Viral Posted: 04/24/2013 2:20 pm
A fourth grader's poignant plea for gay marriage is making the blogosphere rounds.
In the letter, which was originally posted on Reddit, reads, "As you can see gay people should have the right to get married and shouldn't judge other peoples lives because if you was gay you wouldn't want people talking about you." Check out the letter in full below:
Why gay people should be ablt to get married is you can’t stop two adult’s from getting married because there grown and it doesn’t matter if it creeps you out just get over it. And you should be happy for them because it’s a big moment in their life. When I went to my grandparents wedding it was the happies moment.
As you can see gay people should have the right to get married and you shouldn’t judge other peoples lives because if you wat gay you wouldn’t want people talking about you.
Buzzfeed and Towleroad have been among the various media outlets to subsequently post the letter. Children across the nation -- many of which have been raised by gay or lesbian parents -- have been making headlines after sounding off on marriage equality in a variety of different ways.
Actually marriage of husband and wife to become father and mother, to have children, and to care for them and raise them to be moral and productive citizens warrants tax benefits to help that happen.
The gay choice offers no such contribution to the stability of society, and like cigarettes should have sin tax placed on it.
