    Hebrews 2:8 You have put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him.

    What we see in the now is not always God's perfect will. That's because the world we live in is cursed by sin. In fact, the only thing that has received redemption in planet earth is the soul of a follower of Christ. All else groans for full redemption (Romans 8).

    Ath, you have my compassion and prayers for your struggle and I apologize if I represented myself insensitively.
    Ah nah, you're good -- well said

    Don't you think the person with extreme and painful physical disabilities is just as deserving of having their broken heart bound up as the person who is drawn to people of their own sex? Why is the homosexual more deserving of healing than the person whose body is gradually falling apart due to cancer or MS?

    I've just been trying to give you some friendly advice is all and now I'll stop. Take it as intended or continue to see it as...however it is you're seeing it.

    Seems to me you're only looking at posts for points to argue about and refusing to consider what's actually being said.
    Otherwise you would know that you and I already agree on things you want to continue to debate with me.
    I wasn't referring to you.

    I just noticed I quoted two people in one post. Does anyone know how I did that? It could be useful.

    I believe if you reply twice in the same thread in a short amount of time, it will automatically bundle them together into one post.

    Let me try.....................

    Yep. Confirmed. This is my third post in a row............

    I wondered what that button did. I don't think I used it but maybe I did. I think the thing about posting twice is more likely.

    Yes, a quick two replies will group those replies into a single post. I'm sure it happened to me once or twice.
    Do not say, Why were the old days better than these? For it is not wise to ask such questions.

    So God loves homosexuals despite 1 Corinthians 6:9 "Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men"

    How can God love homosexuals if they will not inherit the Kingdom of God?

    Thoughts on this?

    Weve reduced God to a minimum. Most of us are trying to get to heaven with minimum spirituality. If we looked after our business like we look after our soul, wed be bankrupt years ago! The materialism has crept in and its blinded us! It has become a way of life.

    I especially like the type you light a candle under.
    Those who seek God with all their heart will find Him and be given sight. Those who seek their own agenda will remain blind.

    Kind if a dumb comment by the Pope, now that I think about it. Would he say the same thing to a serial killer or a pedophile?

    God makes people with character flaws that they need to work to overcome, not to accept as they are and act out their basest impulses.
    "For a small moment have I forsaken you, and with great mercy will I gather you.With a little wrath did I hide My countenance for a moment from you, and with everlasting kindness will I have compassion on you," said your Redeemer, the Lord."..."For the mountains shall depart and the hills totter, but My kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of My peace totter," says the Lord, Who has compassion on you.

    Isaiah 54

    Thoughts on this?
    when I had conversations on similar subjects with representatives of the Orthodox Church, Muslims and Jews, there was agreement that a sin is called when a person commits it. Predisposition is not a sin, a person can lead an asexual lifestyle and can not be condemned for "homosexuality" according to the Scriptures. Scripture condemns sin itself, and in regard to predisposition the Scripture is silent. It is in the style of medieval superstition to make a fuss about the words of Pope Francis, because in his words there is nothing wrong and contrary to Scripture.

    Are you so superstitious that for you a homosexual and a maniac is the same thing? you might think that the killer or maniac depends on whether a homosexual person or not.
