Old habits die hard as they say...
I use to get in trouble in college for using B.C. and A.D. rather then BCE and C.E. This is political correctness gone amonk.
The pastor need to read the passage in the bible, I believe to be in Revelations that states the world "will make wrong into right" and wrong into a right".
Is that what you decide to focus on? The abbreviations CE and BCE have been in use since the 19th century and "Common Era" goes back even further, sorry to educate you on such things and , as for my personal usage, I've used it for years.
Most of it is all mythology as far as I'm concerned - Christian, Roman, Greek - the only difference being that there are no Roman or Greek pantheon adherents left to make ridiculous comments noting their upset at not using the "correct" terminology.
Never mind, I still love you as the person.
FYI: They're not called "Bronze Age dictates" anymore - the proper term is "User Policy," and apparently ALOT of people need it. LOL.
/Please don't banninate me, VICAD staff. I keed.
It's 2010 folks, not 1500 BCE
I don't need bronze age dictates on how to treat my fellow man with equality, respect and dignity.
So what I am hearing from "mytwocents" is that it OK to beat up, harass and bully sinners...I can think of some middle Eastern countries where his views would be very welcome...
I can't change others. I can only change me.
I just created my first "search alert" for Rev. Kathleen Ellis.
Bullying and harassment are still not acceptable for people of any age or identity.
May the chromosones and genes of the family of "gay haters" never produce a child whose genetic mix creates a child with a gender crisis. Should such a breach of justice occur, that child is as good as dead at birth. I applaud the idea of teaching young people to choose wisely but to teach them to deny their genetic make up is to tell them to die. It is a good idea to advise children and young people as well as adults to stay away from sexually obsessed people gay or straight. To separate individuals on the basis of gender identity gay or straight is to criticize the genetic makeup of man and the creator of the genetic system of human reproduction.
Lead by example, not by condemnation. If you think someone is sinning, befriend them, invite them to sit at your table and attend your church. God is the judge, not man. "Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?" James 4: 11-12.
