Mother's Inspirational Video of Blind Baby Boy - Lacey and Christian Buchanan
by Lacey Buchanan
On an unrelated note, check out this video all the way through (have some kleenex handy).
Toda. Why do you say "I would be one of the first to inject Robert Stewart for his crime" (his sin of murder), but then say "Don't judge" when it comes to the sin of homosexuality? Sin is sin, is it not? Believe me, I've committed them all too, but that doesn't mean I should be welcoming sin into my world.
I seriously typed in "YODA" as an accident. I meant "TODA"
YODA. As usual, you liberals cherry-pick Luke 6:37/Matthew 7:1 stating "Judge not and you will not be judged" to justify your own sin (lack of faith). WE are not making that judgment, GOD has already made that judgment for us. He has declared homosexuality a sin in all the places aggou provided, and you are attempting to change that. Matthew 5:19 states: "Whoever then annuls one of the least of these commandments, and teaches others to do the same, shall be called least in the kingdom of heaven..." YOU are attempting to 'annul' His commandments.
If instead of the sin of homosexuality we were talking about the sin of murder or theft, would you still quote Matthew 7:1/Luke 6:37 and say "don't judge!"? When that lunatic shot up the Carthage nursing home, did you say "Don't judge him"? We aren't at all saying we want to 'stone' homosexuals. In fact, we love them and would give the shirt off our backs for them, just like we would the drunkard, the prostitute, the murder, the thief, the tax collector, etc. But we (I) WILL NOT defy God and redefine what He has already called sin.
Well, never mind me. As a Christian I will be mocked for following Jesus. It's nothing new. It has been done for about 2,000 years. I really don't care. But for your sake, I pray you choose Christ :-).
My role as a Christian isn't to determine whether the democrats are correct or whether the republicans are. Those things are man's invention and they will burn with the rest of the world. Rather, my job is to determine what is FOR God, and what is AGAINST God. What side are you on?
Nezumi. God said, "For by grace you have been saved through FAITH; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God" (Ephesians 2:8). Your comment shows zero faith in Jesus Christ. I truly hope you ask God for some, seriously. Your own reasoning will not save you. This isn't something you can just 'wait out' and see what happens (I was there too).
What is faith? "Faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen" (Hebrews 11:1). Audit yourself and your salvation tonight. You have from now until your last breath to decide who you are going to serve: yourself (man), or God (Jesus Christ). When will your last breath be?
And Moonchild, in response to your last two sentences, God most definitely IS Love. Love poured from His hands, feet, brow, and His side.....but finish that thought. He loved the world SOOO much that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). And if you believe in Him, you believe in His Word, and He said, "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments" (John 14:15).
Moonchild (or anyone else) there are only three options here:
1) God is wrong.
2) God doesn't exist.
3) God said it, we obey it, because He is our Creator, Savior, and Judge.
Choose one, but choose wisely.
