    I really enjoy discussing the Bible. There is so much to learn and so much to share.

    The Message is the worst Translation

    I no longer insult God by calling it a bible. It's not. There have been many threads about this book. Here is one search ... https://www.worthychristianforums.com/search/?&q="the Message bible"&page=1&search_and_or=or&sortby=relevancy My advice, avoid it at all cost.
  2. May I suggest your discomfort comes from God calling you to repentance.
  3. I don't take any pleasure in your decision at all. In fact, it saddens me to know that you, or anyone else, refuses to believe in God, knowing they will never know His blessings. One is having love for all, even your enemy. In your case, dislike for those who speak a different language, as one example. What you fail to see is that His love He places in you is so much greater than the worldly love we know as humans. The problem I see is that you can only think of, and use, worldly reasoning, not knowing what God has to offer, so you think only in those terms. If, by His loving patience, you do accept God in the future, than you will find that the old way of thinking (the old man) dies and a new way of thinking (the new man) lives in you and your dislikes from your natural state will not be what you desire, but His will to be done. As for my knowledge, it is not my knowledge, but His words I base my statements on. Since nobody knows the day or hour they will die, would it not be wiser to accept Him now then gamble for the future?
  4. If a non-believer is in outer darkness, separated from all that is good, there should no worries about them ever being close to anyone in heaven. No communication back and forth at all. Why is this such a concern to you? You make your choice to not believe in God, so how can you believe in heaven?

    Raw end of the stick

    Sounds more to me like you think that God is some sort of magician waiting for your requests so He can wave a magic wand to make all better instead of allowing Him to work inside you to make you a better person so you can share His love with others, so they can also change. I find this typical among unbelievers. Instead of placing the responsibility of what is going on on those who are creating the issues, people are so quick to depend of God to straighten it out Himself, as if He was responsible for how people act. He is not. He gave each of us a free will to do what we want. It depends on what is in ones heart as to how they live. I am guessing you do not remember Jesus' words from Matthew 6:23 But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! What interests me about all your complaining is that you claim God gives the world more to worry about without even realizing that He gave you eyes to see the sin in the world and not remain blind. You see this as a bad thing? I see this as a blessing. How can we do something about a wrong if we never knew it was wrong? Even the simple laws of this world would not have any effect if they were not known, yet you say this is bad. May I suggest that you don't approach God with your hands out waiting for Him to fill them with all sorts of blessing. Instead, approach Him in the way He can show you what needs to be changed in you so you can receive what He has promised His children God waits for a relationship, not a wish list..

    will gays go to hell if they do not repent?

    CCHL, God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He never changes. Humans, however, will change and twist His meanings to fit their own, just as Satan did all through out scripture. Why? Because Satan did not want to accept Gods ways, and neither do humans when it comes against their own personal sins they do not want to let go of. Sin is sin, and unless you can show in scripture where homosexuality is not considered a sin, it remains a sin. Homosexuality is being sexually immoral, as are many other immoral sexual acts. We are told in scripture that the sexual immoral will have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death. (Revelation 21:8) As for the LGBTQ community, I have a lot of experience with them in my area as my mother was bisexual, my sister was bisexual and my daughter is very active in the community. She, like you, continues to believe God will accept her beliefs about her relationship(s) as she says it is in love. Though it breaks my heart to see her continue to follow a lie, she, like you, rejects the truth only because she does not want to give up her lifestyle. All I can do for her, and for you, is to give this to the Lord and hope you both will see the truth through His eyes, not your own desires.

    will gays go to hell if they do not repent?

    Paul never depicts homosexuality between older men having sex with young boys as his only meaning, but homosexuality in it's fullness, complete in every way. The LGBTQ community is teaching this false doctrine in order to project their consensual sex between male and male, or female and female, as a loving relationship, creating a false narrative of how God meant love to be. In Genesis 2 we read what God meant for a relationship, male and female. 18 And the Lord God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” 19 Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the air, and brought them to Adam to see what he would call them. And whatever Adam called each living creature, that was its name. 20 So Adam gave names to all cattle, to the birds of the air, and to every beast of the field. But for Adam there was not found a helper comparable to him. 21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. 22 Then the rib which the Lord God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. 23 And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” 24 Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed. No mater how hard you try to shine a righteous light on homosexual relationships, all it really is doing is showing the hypocrisy of what the LGBTQ community calls faith and love in Christ compared to what scripture itself declares. As for your past post about love and kindness, I know atheist who show love and kindness, yet they do not believe in God. Works is not what saves a person.

    Romans 1:18-32 God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. 24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

    9 Ways People are Bullied in Church

    That list can be seen in every walk of life, not just in the church. Such traits come from the heart and should be avoided.
  13. I like rock climbing, be it bouldering, sport or trad. It is not a team competition, so no stress to win or play harder than you want. It's just you and the rock, plus the talents God gives you to put the puzzle together.

    The Armour of God

    One of my favorite passages. I like to ponder what this means from time to time to remind myself that our war is not with the people, but with the forces behind their ways.
