Shylynne Said:

They and those others who believe that God is continuing to reveal truths not contained in or inconsistent with the truth revealed in the Bible have exchanged their authority as ministers of The  Church for the false robes of priests and priestesses of gnosticism. Gnosticism was heresy in the history of the Early Church. It remains heresy."
amen!

Shylynne,

Sister, thanks for sharing this with us. I look around today with absolute shock about what is happening in so many so-called churches and ministries. If they are churches and ministries, they belong to the devil, not Christ. Most older Christians would have never dreamed some of the things happening today. What bothers me the most is some who flaunt their open and continued wallowing in sin and darkness, all the while professing Jesus. In my opinion, this is slapping our Lord and Saviour in the face with evil, and they never knew Jesus, nor does JESUS know them.

Love In Christ,
Tom

Psalms 121:1  I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.

Amen Tom!
"...Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God"

i think that there are two kinds of homosexuality:  biological and environmental.  just as there are two kinds of depression:  biological and environmental.

 Sin by any other name is still sin.

Until the 1970's homosexual behaviour was considered a disorder by psychologists and psychiatrists.  They had little success at treatment.  This condition causes a great number of people to suffer no matter what any group says.  Because no one really knows what causes the condition and how to treat it, it was taken out of the book of disorders that doctors use to diagnose.  Homosexual acts were also considered crimes in most countries and people could be put in jail for committing them.  I am sure if the big pharmaceutical companies had come up with a "cure" for homosexual urges, they would be pushing their pills with tv commercials like they do with Viagra.  

Sexual activity is not the most important aspect of our life on earth but some people insist on basing their whole identity on it.  They call themselves "homosexuals" and say they have a gay lifestyle.  So then the sin becomes so deep in their lives it becomes part of their personality and identity.  It is so so sad because some people are telling them homosexual activity is not a sin.  It is very difficult for some people to accept that it is sin. I pray often for people I know suffering from this sin but I don't have much hope that they will be able to become saved when they are so deep into a sinful lifestyle.  

Often people "decide" that they are "gay" during early adolescence.  They are often teased about how they look or different personality traits.  More often from talking to these people I find that they were introduced into the lifestyle by being sexually abused.  They suffered guilt and anger at being abused, and were told that the guilt and anger would go away once they accepted that they were "gay".  I don't know if this is the case for everyone, but this is largely what I have observed.  It is often suggested that gender identification with the parents plays a large role in the development of the personality.
