So when is Ben Broadbent going to defend his position here? His reasoning is theologically pathetic and needs substance, not feeling. What a lightweight.
The mayor let power go to his head...and is as bought into the system as anyone ever has been.
How boring Guru...your whole hate mantra...to believe that something is wrong is not hate...we are naming the sin just as Jesus did, there is no hate involved. That is the emotional BS ploy of the left to avoid having to argue the issue.
How well we all got along with the gays before they had to make their dysfunction a matter we had to approve...we could all feel hated if we tried to force people to approve our various sins and dysfunctions.
The message of the gospel is repentance and amendment of life, not permission to do whatever fallen behavior in which we want to engage.
This tool was implemented as part of a larger home health rule "benefit standard", advocacy organizations across the state warned the department in September 2012 the tool was flawed, and informed the Medical Services Board of their concerns in a joint letter, http://joshuawinkler.com/MSB_Concerns.pdf, the dep't did nothing and children with disabilities across Colorado are suffering as a result!
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.
C'mon, Bill- it's still the longest running tragicomedy in local history. We should be proud that we each had bit parts in the show years ago. And Scott - who else could play you? Maybe the young DeNiro "You talkin' to me??!!"
You can include many of us 40 somethings as well...
Just put in some wide tunnels under the road with some first class landscaping.
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.
Robert Redford??!! I'm flattered but my wife won't stop laughing!
Todd is simply wrong about our running time; The Wild Duck runs reliably 2 and 1/2 hours as advertised (including intermission), which is actually 15 minutes shorter than the recent London revival. Obviously he thought the play went on forever, and it's true that there is a lot of play here, and very long build up to a climax, but all of this is crucial to its shattering climax and cumulative power. Ibsen has not written a play which depends on audience empathy with his characters, whose limitations are immediately evident. Instead he has created an astonishing mix of melodrama, symbolism, irony, tragedy, satire, poetry and realism. The villain thinks he's the hero; his feckless victim thinks he is a romantic tragic figure. Blind idealism and life lies still abound. Todd thinks the material doesn't hold up but I suspect while snoozing he was weighing it very lightly:the play really is a masterpiece--the more time we have spent with it the more we have been rewarded, and our experience has been shared by actors and directors and audiences for the last 100 years. We are very proud of our beautiful production, and we encourage Todd to see the show again after he has polished his glasses, adjusted his prescription and found his white cane. I will be happy to help him find his seat and show him the light :-)
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...
Will it be a comedy, drama, chick flick, gay flick, tragedy, or action adventure series?
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.
John, obviously you're not a member of the CSA! ;-)
"City Council" would probably play well here in COS as a reality show, but I don't think the rest of the country's viewers would get our sense of humor.
