I don't know. Same goes with why people are allowing gays to preach. It's not right. How can you listen to someone who is clearly contradicting him or herself?

Do you think the church can do something about the second one?

    I don't and wouldn't attend a Church that would let a Homosexual be a member,not knowingly let alone let one preach. Now if a Gay came to Christ, and left it and was called to preach ok, but not a curently open or a hidden Gay.

What do you think about the High Court in the State of Massachusetts decreeing that homosexual marriages are constitutional?
I think the High Court is high alright.  Homosexuals should get the death penalty if found guilty of such immoral crime against our society.  That's what a good government like the one God established is supposed to do to homosexuals, execute them!

Not funny!  Love the sinner, hate the sin.  No wonder people who practise homosexuality feel outraged.   Some christians make this a personal attack on these people without making room at the cross for them as well.  Jesus died for ALL of us.

2 Pet 3:9
9 The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.

I'm not saying we shouldn't say sin is sin, but Jesus came to us in this life as good news.  Judgment comes later to those who don't reprent.  Go into all the world and preach the good news

Mark 16:15
15 He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation.
(NIV)

Luke 4:18
18 "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed,
(NIV)

Luke 4:43
43 But he said, "I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent."
(NIV)


Acts 8:12
12 But when they believed Philip as he preached the good news of the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
(NIV)

Acts 11:20-21
20 Some of them, however, men from Cyprus and Cyrene, went to Antioch and began to speak to Greeks also, telling them the good news about the Lord Jesus.
21 The Lord's hand was with them, and a great number of people believed and turned to the Lord.
(NIV)

People who turn, turn because of the good news of Jesus Christ and his ability to rescue us from our hopeless lives.   We will not change peoples lives condeming them to hell without throwing them a life line.  Its one thing if they refuse to grab the life line, but its quite another if we laugh at them as they drown in their sin, while enjoying the comfort of our life boat.

Hey Tibby,

Sorry if I sounded a little hyper....lol   I just believe that sometimes in the heat of battle, its easy for soldiers of the faith to forget who the real enemy is.  

Peace and Love!

You know I think I might be going a little off topic, but what do you guys think about Christians marrying non-christians? I know it happens. It doesn't make sense to me, but then again we are not supposed to hate the sinner, but the sin. So what does the bible say on that?

The verse you are referring to is...

2 Cor 6:14
14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?
(NIV)

Yoked, meaning litteraly joined together

Strongs Greek/Hebrew deffinition of Yoke.
2218  zugos (dzoo-gos');
from the root of zeugnumi (to join, especially by a "yoke"); a coupling, i.e. (figuratively) servitude (a law or obligation); also (literally) the beam of the balance (as connecting the scales):
KJV-- pair of balances, yoke.

And Fellowship
3353  metochos (met'-okh-os);
from 3348; participant, i.e. (as noun) a sharer; by implication an associate:
KJV-- fellow, partaker, partner.

It is possible to love sinner's without being participants.

Mark 10:21
21 Jesus looked at him and loved him. "One thing you lack," he said. "Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
(NIV)

Clear message of love and hope, not condemnation.   Again, I do not dispute the sin, or deny its wrong.  Only that by loving sinners can they see the error of their way, and have the hope of treasure in heaven by following the forgiver of sin.

Grace and Love!

As for marrying an un-believer.  You are forming a union with a spouse.  The two become one.  I think the problem here is the spiritual battle that would ensue.  All of us are constantly fighting our own sinful nature.  But imagine fighting your own sinful nature along with a yoked sinful nature.   Thats 2 sinful natures against one forgiven nature.  Not winning odds for you spiritually.  Might sound silly, but thats the way I look at it.

2nd Timothy's words are plain text
Mozilla's word are in bold text.
--------------------------------------------------
Not funny!  Love the sinner, hate the sin.  

That is a dangerous and unscriptural cliche.  Does God punish the sin or the sinner?  The sinner of course, because the sin is within the sinner.  You cannot separate the two.

No wonder people who practise homosexuality feel outraged.

I've yet to see many outraged homosexuals.  There are plenty of homo activists that pretend to be outraged so someone will feel sorry for them.  I for one will not tolerate it.

Some christians make this a personal attack on these people without making room at the cross for them as well.

Only an extremely small number of Christians have personally attacked a homosexual by physical means.

Jesus died for ALL of us.

Yes, but that doesn't mean ALL are saved.

I'm not saying we shouldn't say sin is sin, but Jesus came to us in this life as good news.  Judgment comes later to those who don't reprent.  Go into all the world and preach the good news

We are not to tell homosexuals their lifestyle is acceptable just so they can get saved.  That would be a horrible thing to do.

People who turn, turn because of the good news of Jesus Christ and his ability to rescue us from our hopeless lives.  

I think it's great if a homosexual repents.  But the "good news" presented to them better not be the wishy-washy (God loves you and will save you no matter what even if you are a practicing homosexual) gospel.  Homosexuals must repent if the want to be saved.  And to repent means a 180 turn from their homosexual ways.

We will not change peoples lives condeming them to hell without throwing them a life line.  Its one thing if they refuse to grab the life line, but its quite another if we laugh at them as they drown in their sin, while enjoying the comfort of our life boat.

Actually, we cannot condemn them to hell.  And we cannot throw them a life-line.  That is something only God can do my friend.
