Instead, he said in the statement, the decision to leave â€œunites us to stand upon the Bible as the final authority in all matters of our faith and life and to proclaim Jesus as the Savior of the world.â€
That’s right, hide behind your man-made bible to show your hatred & intolerance for people who aren’t like you as you have for 2,000 years. Think (if jesus really did in fact, exist) he would support the hatred you are demonstrating…and USING HIM as YOUR EXCUSE?? How pathetic and a crappy example that is. This man said we can now move foward?? This is the exact opposite of ‘moving forward’!!
Frankly, who gives a crap what other people decide to do in their OWN BEDROOM. Should YOUR acts be SHAMED upon and CONDEMNED for? Hell no… so it shouldn’t be with theirs. It’s their own darn business.
How dare you… such hypocrites.

S, The problem is an eternity is a long time to spent in hell. God wrote the Book. Donâ€™t doubt it!
Repent and seek Jesus, He did it all for his Elect. Amen.
You have no idea what you are talking about…it is FACT that MAN wrote the bible. You speak all the gibberish you’ve been taught. It’s sad that a lot of christians have no idea how christianity even exists. Read HISTORY. FACT. Pastor’s who have studied the HISTORY of the bible know, it’s been written BY MEN. It still shouldn’t affect your ‘faith’. It teaches good things but also OUTDATED THINGS BECAUSE IT WAS WRITTEN for the ages back then. Grow up & get real…
You are incredibly blind to the truth. It’s disgusting to me that you are telling me to ‘repent’ and seek a 2,000 yr old dead man. Keep your faith to yourself. I’m speaking in the times of NOW & acceptance FOR ALL. AMEN!!
2Ti 3:16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
God hasn’t changed. Were’re just in the last days of apostasy.
Oh so one sentence in the man-made book makes it all true huh? What do you consider the torah then? The koran?
Religion was invented by humans. It was created for moral control and inspire fear, aka hell. Also to create hope for people who are afraid of dying, aka heaven. It doesn’t fool me. When we die, we die. Simple as that and no fictional fairytale book will fool and dupe me into thinking otherwise. Live in reality. Live NOW. Accept everyone and love everyone. Do good things, just BECAUSE. Not because it’ll be your ‘ticket’ to heaven. Seems a little selfish to me.
Learn from those who are different from you. Do not condemn them and treat them any less. We are all equal. That life is what is worth living for. Not some dead man and an idea of a god who loves all but yet condemns. Extremely contradictory.
Look, up at the sun or moon, how about the eye and how it works.
All things show the Glory about the God who created them.
Man wrote the Word(Bible)yes and by the inspiration by the Holy Spirit.
2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the Scripture is of any private interpretation.
2Pe 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Delusion is what drives anything made up. You want to believe that some invisible thing spoke to people. So you are willing to believe it. People told you to believe in it. So you do. You even told ME not to question… you are enforcing on me YOUR religion. Not questioning is exactly what they want you to do and taught you to do because IT DOESN’T MAKE LOGICAL SENSE. They are simply telling you, believe without questioning because it’s bad. Oh no! I wonder why??
It’s mind control. Having the absense of any logical thinking, is how you can believe something made up. How is it any different from a cult? They blindly follow & don’t dare question!!
Believe it or not, I feel that religion can be used for good. That does not bother me. What does bother me is when people choose excerpts from the man made bible (to which, you finally admitted that man in fact, wrote it) just to exclude, chastize & condemn other people who are different from you. That is NOT okay. The people you chose to be seperate from and condemn, share the same views and passions for your dead guy and the idea of a god. Yet, you now deny them their right to worship with you… disgusting.
So you are using the man made book as an excuse to condemn. Come repent? Repent for what? Repent TO what? The air? Or the science term, oxygen? You should be the one to repent…TO THE PEOPLE YOU CHOSE TO CONDEMN. They are hurt because of you. Look past the words of man and look at the people, who exist…are hurting. That’s what matters. People. If you believe they are going to your fictional hell, so be it. Who cares what you think of them. Just don’t shove what you believe on them to make yourself appear more ‘holy’ and that you are the ones who are ‘right’ in ‘gods’ eyes… That is what truly disgusts me. Everyone has a right to love who they want to love. Gender should not be an issue at all, period. Feelings are feelings. Some people even say feelings, are ‘god’ itself. And you dare to condemn that??
You are not ‘holy’ because you have the impression you have the right to be somehow better than them because of some text thousands of years ago.
Someone who appears ‘holy’ accepts and loves anyone and everyone, no matter what. Now that to me, is commendable and something to live your life by.
Hey S, you and me, we would get along great! You just summed up my “beliefs” better than I could. Id love to have coffee!
Wow…not condemning me? Telling me I’m going to hell? Telling me to shut up? But actually agreeing with me?? It’s so rare to find someone with reason and a truly open free mind. Coffee would be great!

I know how you feel. I have spent many hours listening and debating other peoples religious beliefs with an open mind, but when I bring up my own beliefs, which are very similar to yours, you would think I grew horns out of my head.
