Bible Arguments That Promote Homosexual Behavior by Building Upon a Faulty Foundation — No Comments

  1. The words “Bible” and “Scripture” (when referring to the Bible) are always capitalized. Also, when referring to the Gospel of John, “Gospel” should be capitalized since it is part of the title of the book.

      • unto Him, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy fttosoool Psalm 110:1, Matthew 22:44; Mark 12:36; 16:19; Luke 20:42-43; Acts 2:34-35; Hebrews 1:13His coming glory Malachi 3:2-3, Luke 3:17Jesus Christ without a doubt fulfilled all the Messianic Prophecies. He is Lord. He is sovereign. He is God. He intercedes for us in the Heavenly Sanctuary. He is coming back for His Chuch as He has promised (John 14:1-3).Have faith dear friends in God. The Holy Bible is our only guide.

      • The biggest preblom is people refuse to look with their hearts.You can’t see the world with your eyesAs so much of it is man made not the way it was created to beMeaning enhanced or recreated how they want things to look or be.Although Jesus could see us with His eyes. He chose to view us for what is inside insteadWe as believers and children of the one true God need to do this as wellI hold my beauty inside me.The kind God made for me

    • The Read & Share DVD Bible videos are elcexlent. My grandchildren from age 4-11 will sit, enthralled. The 30 minute format is perfect for the younger ones. The Bible stories are well representated and I would highly recommend these to anyone who wants to increase their children’s Biblical knowledge. We watch them over and over at our house.

    • I preach and teach from the NIV moslty. It’s generally my favorite translation, but part of my decision to preach from it is because one of my three churches had already invested in pew bibles that are NIV.My daily devotions at home are done with a Wesley Study Bible (I am Methodist, you know) that is NRSV. But I have just about every common translation and sometimes for fun will pick up a different one.The Message is really interesting it is wearing on me a little. I was shocked the first time our Methodist Bishop over the South Carolina conference used it in a sermon. But now I will occasionally read from it, especially when I’m reading to youth.Peace,Ray

  2. Even after having these things pointed out, you have neglected to correct the issue. Don’t you think it’s disrespectful to God’s Word by not fixing this blatant lack of honor?

    • I do appreciate your concern. You may also want to correct the authors of the KJV of the Bible (see 2-Timothy 3:16 and 2-Peter 3:17).
      However, I am not here to argue my relationship with the Living God based upon where and when I use caps. in my writings. Perhaps you care to comment on the content of the article. You might also desire to sign up as an active member with a traceable name and email.
      Grace be with you.

      • I’ve gone back and forth through Bibles, using mtsoly the ESV and NIV in the past. I gave up using ESV because it was so choppy to read through, even though it was good for study. Readability and accuracy are both important to me. I still use the NIV a lot (a NIV/ Message parallel for reading), but it’s too familiar to me. I tend to gloss over verses a lot on accident, and the translation can be kind of generic sometimes.I’ve landed on the HCSB. They’ve marketed this Bible mtsoly as specialty Bibles (the soldier’s Bible etc.) but it’s an amazing version. It uses an “optimal equivalence” approach which uses both thought-for-thought and word-for-word depending on which they felt best portrayed the text. It uses words like “Messiah” instead of “Christ” and it just makes so much sense reading it. It is rich in language and very understandable.Here at SIBI, I’ve heard teachers say, “the real word should be ___ and I just wish a translation said it.” A lot of times the HCSB does! But they always forget the version lol. Anyway, I just bought a bigger version of it and plan on using it as my main version now.

    • First off, be assured that it’s not about feenilgs . Love is not a feeling we always possess or are actually aware of, but we know we love someone or something because of the relationship we have.You are assured that Jesus loves you very much. To me, the Holy Spirit is with me, not just in me. He guides and even provides answers to things that I’ve failed to acknowledge over time and when you discover that your conscience is really the Holy Spirit talking to you, you will follow His cue more and more and your life will fully reflect that righteous relationship. May the Lord, mighty God, bless you and keep you and may He guide you into all wisdom for His name’s sake. Amen!

    • Many people have abnaodned the mind numbing shackles of religious faith by the atheist movement. Record numbers of young people are rejecting the religious faith they were brought up with thanks to the Atheist Experience program and it’s thought provoking discussions.While you are indoctrinating young and impressionable souls with bronze age ignorance we atheists are restoring them back to reason and sanity.

      • Can it be that the atheist movement is wrong. In “Tortured for Christ,” Richard Wurmbrand writes of the pain that atheist, communist leaders imposed upon innocent people. On page 36, he makes this simple observation: “The cruelty of atheism is hard to believe. When a man has no faith in the reward of good or the punishment of evil, there is no reason to be human.”
        Dear Zhenaiditha, I urge you to consider the ignorance of ignoring the honest truth of God’s Gospel. Jesus Christ is the only hope that mankind will ever receive from God.

    • My in-laws bought my wife and me mtahcing ESV study Bibles for Christmas and we have been reading/studying from it primarily this year. Loving it! I grew up with King James, I read it in my youth,I read it in my Sunday school,It’s how I learned the truth (bonus points for anyone who can name that tune)But then I got into Bible bowl at age 12 or so and discovered NIV. Spent years and years there, then I realized I was allowed to read other translations. My wife just bought me a pocket-sized Holman Christian Standard Bible a week ago Saturday and I’m loving it, too!So now my favs are (in no particular order) ESV, NLT, NASB, NCV, HCSB, and the old standby, Mr NIV (I actually got to where I didn’t care at all for the NIV, but I think I was just burned out on it). I also dig the Message. I’ll have to try God’s Word version.Great post. May I steal your idea, Trey?

  3. Grammar has changed since the KJV was first published. That is why in the NKJV, all of these things are capitalized. I was not questioning your relationship; I was merely saying ignoring constructive criticism is foolish. It is my right not to sign up as an active member with a traceable name and e-mail, but I can assure you it is a real, active e-mail address.

    • I really enojeyd the 10 week devo. u had set up Mark Hall and it was def. good and inspirational and def. som great stuff and how we can use this in our walk with the LORD and Savior JESUS Christ. I would like to say AMEN to all yall who helped out with the 10 week dev. and can’t wait to see waht the Lord has for yall in store next. GOD Bless yall all.

  4. The only way to be saved, is by believing that Jesus died for our sins and rose from the dead. Believe, and you are saved! It is that silmpe When you believe in Jesus, then you are given the Holy Spirit. You can pray and ask Jesus for more filling of the Holy Spirit if you like, but it is believing that Jesus died for your sins and believing that Jesus rose from the dead, that saves you Salvation is a FREE GIFT that happens in a split second when you believe in Jesus alone to save you! It is impossible to lose or leave salvation (John 6:39-40, 1 John 5:13). The truth about Jesus is that the only way to be saved and to get into heaven and avoid being sent to eternal hell, is by believing in faith alone that Jesus, who is God, died for our sins on the cross as FULL PAYMENT for all our sins, and then Jesus rose from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:1-4). Believe this and you will be in heaven, no matter what! Please pray now: Jesus, please forgive me of my sins. I believe that You died on the cross for my sins and You rose from the dead. Thank You for eternal life! You will be in heaven with Him forever when you die.

  5. Hey kIf you really bileeve in jesus, it means you will do what he says.In matthew chapter 5, he says whoever does not keep the law(That stuff jews do) and teaches others to do so, he will be least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does and teaches others will be greatest.)But the churchers say noooooooooooooooooooPaul (who never met jesus while he was here)says you don’t according to them.So which is greater, the teacher or the student?If you want to follow jesus, get out of church and find out where he wants you to go, orstay in, ignore what he said and pretend until he comes and says I’m sorry, I never knew you The road is narrowChris T.

  6. mark, i’ve read that verse soo many times! and i half heartedly praeyd it..because i KNOW God will send me to my unbeleiving friends at school. I’m scared that if i tell them that i AM a HARDCORE christian, and then i start to show them that im not quiet bc of my personality, im quiet because i dont have the courage to tell you what’s wrong with what you’re doing!

  7. It’s interesting that you ask this besauce this summer I was asked the same question, but in this way, “You don’t read out of the NIV do you?” When I said yes, I was told of all the ways the NIV was not a good translation and in how many ways it offended the person asking me this quesiton. Then, she asked me what I thought about what she had said. And I said, “Are you sure you want to know?” She said she did. I said, “I think it’s a bunch of baloney and that some people just like getting worked up about things. And I think you’re making more out of it then there is to make.” I honestly said it out of love and I do love this person. But it did kind of make me chuckle a little bit to know it was such a big deal to her.

  8. Both of my bibles (regular and study) are NLT. I like being able to utesrdnand what I’m reading. This means I do not have a “If it ain’t King James, it ain’t bible” sticker on my ’92 dodge shadow. (Actually saw that in the local Home Depot parking lot a few years ago.) I like the message also, but for reading only not study. Seems like I’m cheating or something when I use that version. Like reading “The Shack” for theology. (Please note there is a hint of sarcasm there.)Todd S
