Oklahoma Howdy to TaylorC,

I'm an old guy, a preacher's son, a retired cop, and I think the Beach Boys were pretty wild.   Grin

Are you too young to know who they are? I would have to tell you that I don't understand or listen to the heavy metal, but I have a nephew who plays in a Christian rock band. If you feel lead of the Lord to do this as a ministry, I would tell you to obey and go. I will pray for you that God gives you guidance and the wisdom to bring souls to Christ and honor HIS name. I would ask you to pray that you do HIS will.

Don't get to upset with some of us older people. Some of us are still trying to get used to electricity and indoor plumbing.   Grin

In Christ,
Tom

Actually BEP you should worry about the alcohol because it leads quickly to the woman problem.  Take my word for it.  I was unsaved for 24 years I've seen plenty of those that willfully indulge in sinful things.

Oklahoma Howdy to Saved_4ever,

I certainly understand what you mean. Many members of my family pray for him every day. He's a grown man, so prayer and encouragement are really my only remaining things I can do, especially when he is on the other side of the world.

In Christ,
Tom

Another troubling question:  how much is this ever-so-brilliant college graduate getting paid to perform this atrocity?  He says critics misunderstand the "How to be Gay" class.  No sir, I don't understand the "How You Got Hired" part.

Oklahoma Howdy to Mr. 5020,

WOW!!!!, I never cease to be amazed and shocked to see what is happening in our country. I wonder how hard it would be to install a class on "HOW TO BE SAVED".

In Christ,
Tom

Why is some love good and some love bad?

Grebe,

I assume you are talking about a relationship involving sex. I'll make it real simple. The only sexual relationship that is permitted and blessed by God is between a man and a woman WITHIN the bonds of marriage. Sexual relationships between a man and a woman OUTSIDE the bonds of marriage is fornication and a sin. Sexual relationships between a person and the spouse of another is adultery and a sin. Sexual relationships between people of the same sex or between a person and an animal are an ABOMINATION in the eyes of God and were death sentence offenses under the law. This sums up the teaching of the Bible on this subject. The teaching in the New Testament remained the same, with the exception that we are no longer commanded to stone to death those who commit an abomination.

If you are looking for acceptance of any relationship involving sex, other than between a man and a woman within the bonds of marriage, you won't find it in the Holy Bible. Further, you won't find acceptance or respect of these acts by God's children.

Oklahoma Howdy to Ollie,

There would be pros and cons in nearly all approaches to being a Pastor. I understand what you are saying above, but let me give you another thought.

Maybe the pastor does a mix of preaching tasks while they are young, strong, and healthy. That would include an outreach type of ministry in whatever location that became available. Maybe the ministry in the church is designed to build up believers in the Word and hopefully encourage others into the ministry and mission fields. Maybe the ministry at the church is also mixed (i.e. services specifically designed for the lost and babes, services designed for the growing believers, and services designed for deeper study by the mature believers), Health will give out sooner or later for the pastor trying to do all of these things at once. However, maybe some in the core congregation were built up, filled the voids, increased the ministry, and went on to do the same thing.

In Christ,
Tom
 
56151  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re:The Military Man on: August 20, 2003, 02:05:26 AM

Yeah, the thinking is, if he is in the Armed Forces, if he can handle power like that, he can drink! Which to be honest is a shame. If you ever get a chance, drive around Ft. Hood, the place is overrun with Alcohol stores!

Oklahoma Howdy to Tibby,

He's single, so I'm really more worried about girls than I am alcohol.  Wink    I don't think he drinks at all.

In Christ,
Tom
56152  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Re:"Krystallnacht, 1938"--American Dictatorship on: August 19, 2003, 09:12:10 PM
Oklahoma Howdy to Symphony,

I think your post is on the mark, with one exception. "Phobia" is usually connected with an unreasonable fear. Thus, "Homophobes" is not an accurate description. I am not afraid of them at all, but I do condemn their acts, am disgusted with their lifestyle, and I refuse to accept or respect their lifestyle. I think that most Christians would fit into the same category, so maybe we need a word other than "Homophobe". How about "HOMODISGUSTUS".

In Christ,
Tom

Oklahoma Howdy,

"Cagey Cajun" and "Year 2043" - Thanks brothers, I needed a laugh.

ROFL and couldn't get up.  Grin

In Christ,
Tom
56154  Theology / Prophecy - Current Events / Re:"Krystallnacht, 1938"--American Dictatorship on: August 18, 2003, 02:58:21 PM

This is true, yet out of context.  I definitely would deal with a homosexual with more understanding love then I do on these boards.  But on these boards, I am not dealing with homosexuals.  I am dealing with ignorant, non-Bible believing, deceived Christians that are fulfilling: "My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge."

Oklahoma Howdy to Mr. 5020,

I think if you ran a poll that the vast majority of the Christians using Christians Unite would take the Holy Bible to the letter on this subject. We are not living under the law or the punishment would be stoning to death. I have and will talk to gays about accepting Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. However, I would not tip toe around the subject, rather I would tell it like it is. It is an abominable sin. It was a death sentence offense, comparable only to the worst crimes.

I've seen the argument that everyone is a sinner, even a Christian in moments of weakness. However there is a big difference between a Christian stumbling, confessing, and asking forgiveness and someone who lives an open and abominable lifestyle on purpose, without remorse, and continuing with no intention of stopping and trying to obey God. If a person wishes to continually walk in darkness, Jesus Christ isn't there. If they wish to come to Jesus Christ, they will have to walk into the light.

There is no comparison between imperfect Christians trying to walk in the light and those who love and wallow in darkness. This is not the first discussion of this topic here. I will do everything I can to help a gay person and bring them to Christ. My attempt was and is in Christian love, but they will know DEFINITELY that I DO NOT accept, respect, or tolerate the gay lifestyle. Those who think they can continue this lifestyle and gain respect and acceptance are wasting their time. It really boils down to walking in the dark or walking in the light.

In Christ.

Hello John The Baptist,

CONGRATULATIONS!

I think you may have set several records here on Christians Unite, and don't think it hasn't gone without notice.

1 - Smallest percentage of pleasant messages.

2 - Highest percentage of messages with name calling and hate spewing.

3 - Number one in terms of self-righteousness, in your own opinion.

4 - Members of just about all churches and denominations called names.

5 - Over 300 messages of pure hog wash and pig slop, in your terms.

6 - Discouraged an unknown number of people coming here for fellowship.

We've come up with an award for you, and it will be given on an annual basis to someone deserving. It's a little bit vague since nobody knows whether you are a man, a woman, a child, an alien, or several entities of all or some of the above. I personally think YOU ARE SEVERAL ENTITIES ON THE FORUM.

No problem though, the award can be vague but fancy, expensive, and very pretty. I just picked up the first one, and it's gorgeous, It's on a glass pedestal and is inscribed with huge letters:

JTB BRICK AWARD

UM???, already spent the money, and I think they spelled something wrong. OH WELL? In conclusion: You are a legend in your own mind, and someone said you were a figment of your own imagination. I'm going to do one of two things: (1) Completely ignore you; (2) Report you to the moderator. I don't think that anyone has come close to creating as much hate and discontent as you have.

JTB, just remember one thing: wherever you go, there you are.
56157  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re:The Military Man on: August 18, 2003, 04:08:00 AM
I'm sure you don't, I'm sure he is a great man. I was just pointing that out.

Where is he stationed?

Oklahoma Howdy to Tibby,

We know that he is on the aircraft carrier US Nimitz, but he hasn't been allowed to say where he is for the last couple of weeks. He was near the Gulf in the Arabian Sea about two weeks ago. He said he would let us know when he could. He is a nuclear engineer and works with the reactors. I tell him to check frequently for glow-in-the-dark body parts.   Wink

His home port is San Diego, CA, but they aren't there very often.

In Christ,
Tom

Hello JTB,

Let me know if you run low.

56159  Theology / Apologetics / Re:IS YOUR BIBLE THE RIGHT ONE? on: August 17, 2003, 06:06:26 PM
UM??, I thought the debate was over and Brother Love won. I guess we could have a poll and confirm that.

Eh? What debate? If this thread is what you call a debate, this Brother Love didn't win it - or even take part in it. He posted an article then interjected a few one or two sentence comments into the discussion that followed.

Knox,

Why don't you post a poll and find out. Something like:  What is the most accurate translation of the Holy Bible:

1 - KJV
2 - KJV with Strong's Numbers.

That should be plenty of choices.   Grin
56160  Theology / General Theology / Re:God's Sabbath Rest on: August 17, 2003, 05:48:56 PM

Still another post of yours that you have stolen from a copyrighted article.

Knox,

Did you notice the label "Author Unknown" on the post? I get things from friends, family, and E-mail circles every day. Many times, the author is not listed, and who knows how many hands it has gone through. It appears that you were looking for an opportunity to make an accusation, as the label makes it clear that he is not claiming the material to be his own.



By the way, there is a copyright notice on the picture, but you have to enlarge the picture to see it.
