Word of God trumps man’s laws every time

For once I can agree with Jim Crawford in that we all have the right to free speech.

However, in the church we only have the right to speak the word of God and what he says.

I totally agree with the church’s stand on why they canceled Mr. Leroy Butler’s appearance. Maybe you think he had the right to say what he did, and maybe he is a “church member.” However, there is a vast difference in a church member and a saved person. I could “join” most churches, but to be saved you have to have Jesus Christ.

The sad part of our society today is that they think God will accept you if you just join the church. This isn’t what the Bible says and many people do just that thinking they will enter Heaven no matter what they do or how they act or what they read.

Everyone has a choice, and everyone has the right to believe what they want to.

However, each of us will one day stand in the presence of God and give an account of what we said or did. The sad truth is that God has the final say in everything, no matter what we say.

God’s word condemns the act of homosexuality in both the Old and New Testament. You have a choice who you believe. Man or God?

I personally choose to believe God.

As I have written before, the acts of homosexuality are recorded in Romans 1: 25-28. This is what the church stands on — God’s word.

I stand on God’s word and will always stand on it, whether I can preach or not.

    Deist; As a PS: In fact, all governments are and have been based on “religion”, in form or another, whether it be Pagan, Jewish or Christian and oftentimes a combination of all three.

    Deist; You might find Matthew chapter 19 verse 4 thru 6 interesting as I did, in fact all of chapter 19 is thought provoking. I think there are occasions what Jesus did not say is just as important as what He did say. Just some thoughts.

    Why do we need the WORD OF GOD? We can just watch the monkey kingdom to learn how to behave.

    Jesus is the SON of God, but a diety also. And Jesus did not say a thing about homosexuality. So you are saying then Jesus is o.k. with slavery, animal sacrifices, eating raw meat or pork or shellfish, executing people for breaking the Sabbath, wearing garments woven with two kinds of material, etc.? And you do know we have a Government that is not based on religion, correct? You must be thinking of a Theocracy like Iran.

    John 1-1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. What God said Jesus abides by it, because Jesus is God.

    What has Jesus said about homosexuality? The answer is absolutely nothing. On the other hand what does Jesus say about greed? The answer , is many , many things. Let us listen to Jesus .
