I know plenty of devout Christians, in fact quite a few entire Christian Churches that love and welcome gay and lesbian parishoners, even clergy.
I listened to Evangelical speakers discussing gay marriage, and they came away agreeing we deserve civil unions at a minimum, and always, respect as human beings.
my point is, your preacher may spit venom on gays and lesbians, but he is NOT CHRIST HIMSELF.
Ask yourself, What Would Jesus Do?
He sure wouldn’t be protesting soldier’s funerals to espouse God’s wrath against America for coddling gays.

Hey you ! Gay! I support all those Christians, Jews and Muslims for condemning same sex por.n.o . This is a crisis that started at the time of Abraham!And yes it still continous……our kids ,relatives ,friends are all in danger!
Source(s):
kill em all!”

Pardon me? same sex por.n.o . This is a crisis that started at the time of Abraham?

would that have been on betamax? who mentioned por.n.o? and if porn is demeaning, isn’t male/female porno the same? I don’t know if you are not a native English speaker, but you’re not communicating clearly.
“pita
Love the sinner,hate the sin.You either believe in the Lord and his teachings,or you don’t.We welcome gays in our church,but that doesn’t mean you will be married in it.”

I appreciate the welcome, and I’m not asking to be married in your church. I’ll ask that while I’m there, I hear more of love than hate in the sermon from the minister, and the parishoners. From what you’ve said, I’d enjoy a Sunday morning sharing a pew with you.

“one family is responsible for most of the protesting,and they’re Baptist.”

actually, they are members of one particular Baptist church, and for the most part, are also related (read:inbred) I was raised a Baptist, but there’s no way anyone from my church would protest like that.

They make baseless assertions that they claim are the truth. Do you think they might be compensating for a lack of evidence, like short guys compensate for their lack of stature with an aggressive and confrontational personality?

because many Bibles contain different interpretantion or translation of the psalms and I am using a hebrew Bible but I should if I should pray the Jewish version of the Bible or a christian version of the Bible in my language in order to tell the psalms?

Why are some Christians Racist and Homophobic?
I’ve seen plenty of programs where Christian speakers have condemned coloured people and Gay people, one person (who had many supporters) even refered to a black person as “someone God had left in the oven too long”

Now if God created everything blah blah blah then why are black people seen like this? And if he has given everyone their own choice because he loves us so much then why is being gay seen as wrong when it’s there choice?
Ha, homophobic even :)

As for the “same reason as muslims view white people as the devil” thats the reason im wanting to find out.
In responce to batgirl2good, your answer makes no sense, not all those people believe that God created everything.

Being a Christian and believing in God does not absolve us of using our brains. When someone asks a question (whether in accusation or curiosity) why can’t we respond rationally and in a way that can be understood by other fellow english speakers? It’s as if you don’t understand your own faith or you don’t understand the question. Be calm, be coherent, and be knowledgeable. Please stop hiding behind the literal bible words and speak plainly about what’s in your heart and mind. Share your experiences.

If you can’t do the above then why would you answer the questions?

Article Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/Why Many Christians Fail To See God’s Best





With respect to world events there is a volatility that causes tremendous concern; wars, rumors of wars, natural disasters, and economic collapse – and all of these concerns rule the news and continually promote uncertainty and fear among the masses.  As many Christians ponder these rapid changes, along with the unpredictability that such change brings, they often find themselves caught up in the same fearfulness.  However, such fear is not the plan of God for the Christian life.

There is no denying that the unstable economy here at home and abroad, as well as natural and man-made disasters taking place around the world, make it convenient to be afraid: it becomes very easy to let fear begin to rule one’s life, but such fear is never a mandate from our God.

God’s people are always commanded to not be afraid of what the future holds, and because of this command we must resist fear at every turn – the best way to do that is to have a firm grip on the reality of God’s Word.

While it is true that we can’t know what tomorrow holds, we can know who holds tomorrow.  In His word, God has assured us that He will never leave us nor forsake us.  He has also promised that when trouble comes He will be with us and deliver us out of that trouble; that promise is found in Psalm 91:15: “He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him….”  With assurance from God’s own Word we can be certain that God’s will is to take care of us during tough times, and ultimately deliver us out of those tough times as well.

However, we must also note that God’s promise to protect us and deliver us from trouble is conditional upon our calling out to Him.  Notice Psalm 91:15 again: “He shall call upon me….” In other words, we must come to God in prayer.

Regrettably, prayer is where many in Christendom fall short: they don’t know how to call on God correctly.  As Christians we must understand that God has a way, and that certainly includes our prayer life as well; we must walk in God’s ways of doing and being if we are to be victorious.

Unfortunately, many Christians are unaware that they are making critical errors with respect to mandates found in God’s Word concerning their prayer life.

If you would like to know more about overcoming life’s day-to-day adversities, and about how to experience God’s victory over the troubles of life, as well as errors that must be avoided, you can download our free book The Way To Practical and Powerful Prayer.

Are Dating Agencies For Christians A Good Idea?

By: Cole Stanley

About the Author

Cole Stanley recommends you online dating sites and also read about friendship.

(ArticlesBase SC #813288)

Article Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/Are Dating Agencies For Christians A Good Idea?





Searching for a partner who is a Christian can be a bit like searching for a needle in a haystack. The main questions are where to go, whom to look for and should you even be searching for someone to begin with? These questions seem like very reasonable ones. Since we say that God knows everything and He sees all, certainly He will bring someone into our lives who is right for us at the right moment.

So then why use a Christian dating agency? Well, think of a scenario in which you sat at home all day long for your whole life, not going out to parties or church events anymore. That would result in you meeting with no one of the opposite gender with whom you might develop a friendship and perhaps even marry someday. Extreme as it may sound, this would be the logical result of not mixing with general public and engaging in social activities, making new associates and getting involved with a church.

In our opinion, getting involved with a church IS an excellent way to meet other Christian singles. But what happens if you are always on the move and need some help? Well, there is a possibility that your friends may invite you to parties or for evenings out with their friends who are single just to help you out a little. So I ask, what’s the distinction in getting help from the church or a friend to meet up with new people? It doesn’t really have to include dating, and getting a little help from a devoted Christian nun or Christian- owned dating and companionship service that dedicates itself to finding new Christian acquaintances is fine.

There is absolutely no dissimilarity. Yes, there is the shame of belonging to a Christian dating agency but let’s just forget about that. Just try. God likes people that DO, not people that DO NOT. It’s the old axiom about being easier to direct a ship that’s moving than one that stands still.

There is, however, one very significant thing: You should not consider a Christian dating agency as a shortcut to God’s plan for you. Use this service to interact with other people, make new acquaintances and practice making good relations. Don’t use it as a way to go on a lot of dates and see if one of them fits! Stay open to everything and feel the quiet word of God and see the magic of God. See where He is leading you, where He’s taking you , either to one person or to other good Christian associates. I believe that God would like you to have good Christian friends first more than anything else.

Christians are blessed with Prophecy through Dreams.

Written by Joseph Ho, 19th, June 2010.

Many non believers think that being a Christian has extreme handicaps. That is a lie and an unfounded truth. Being a Christian we get prophetic dreams from God and these dreams bring us good news and warnings. God said he will tell his servants what is to come. In this article, I will share with you the numerous dreams which God had given to me and their direct application in my daily life. Yes, these dreams guided my actions in my normal daily life and they are not only comforting, these dreams brought me peace that what I am deciding and doing is in line with what God has shown me. Whatever I saw in my dreams, I did exactly what God has already decreed. Some dreams are just information about my future and so I don’t need to do anything but to accept His sovereign will but for other dreams which require my personal decisions and actions I will always choose to be on the side of God and his will.

Joel 2:28 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.

Amos 3:7 Surely the Sovereign LORD does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets.

Daniel 1:17 To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds.

Daniel 2:28 but there is a God in heaven who reveals mysteries. He has shown King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen in days to come. Your dream and the visions that passed through your mind as you lay on your bed are these:

Daniel 2:29 “As you were lying there, O king, your mind turned to things to come, and the revealer of mysteries showed you what is going to happen.

John 16:13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.

Jeremiah 23:32 Indeed, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” declares the LORD. “They tell them and lead my people astray with their reckless lies, yet I did not send or appoint them. They do not benefit these people in the least,” declares the LORD.

Only God can reveal the future to his people, because he is a revealer of mysteries. Diviners and sorcerers do not know the meaning of dreams which God has given to his people. Only those people who have been given the gift of dream interpretations will know how; because the revealer of the meaning of dreams come from the Holy Spirit which is the Spirit of Truth and it will reveal the truth in the dreams. Dream interpreters are appointed by God otherwise these false interpreters will tell reckless lies.

Daniel 4:7 When the magicians, enchanters, astrologers and diviners came, I told them the dream, but they could not interpret it for me.

Daniel 5:11 There is a man in your kingdom who has the spirit of the holy gods in him. In the time of your father he was found to have insight and intelligence and wisdom like that of the gods.

Micah 3:7 The seers will be ashamed and the diviners disgraced. They will all cover their faces because there is no answer from God.”

Zechariah 10:2 The idols speak deceit, diviners see visions that lie; they tell dreams that are false, they give comfort in vain. Therefore the people wander like sheep oppressed for lack of a shepherd.

Dream of Financial Blessings

One night I had a dream, I dreamt that I was putting money into the banks quick deposit box. I put checks and dollar bills in them. This was a strange dream as usual we would put check into a quick deposit box but never dollar bills. Then the days which follows, people gave unto me $50 dollar bills and checks worth $2000. The dream came as and when it chooses and I had no control over what came to me in my sleep at night.

Dream of God’s Verdict

Another time, I had a dream , I dreamt that my natural father, brother and I were having a meeting and in that meeting my father and I were scolding my brother over certain matters which he had done wrong. The next day, my boss called me over the phone and said to me that he wanted to fire my General Manager, who happens to be my Christian brother in Christ. In that meeting, my boss told him he was to be fired. After that meeting, my boss told me that he had to be fair to me. I was the Head of Operations at that time in that company, this happened the next day after I had the dream.

Dream of Spiritual Blessings

In my dream, I saw 3 buckets of water, one small, one medium and one large. I saw a tap which was filling up the largest of the 3 buckets and it was overflowing with water. Since this dream, I had read the bible and spiritual books for at least 3 years and my mind was overflowing with scriptures and many of my friends were disgusted at my speech as its always about what the bible says.

Dream of Future Events

I had another dream along time ago; this time was about my father. In the dream, I saw him at a bus station and suddenly he went into a convulsion, he flipped backwards and was rocking on the ground with his middle section having extreme pain at his stomach section. Then he stood up and was alright except I knew there was something missing. One month later, he was found to have stomach cancer and had his stomach removed, but he was alright and lived another 10 years later. So when my father was found to have cancer of the stomach I was very relieved that although something was missing, he would be alive and well. This brought me peace and allowed me to proceed on my personal plan without worrying for him.

Dream of God’s Warning

In another dream, I dreamt that my car brakes were not working and I had collided with another car in front of me when I stopped my car at an intersection. Immediately in the morning, I went to check my brakes and the mechanic told me that my brake discs were worn out and had to be replaced. This was a good warning as I had already intended to drive a long distance to see my customer during that period. God is so good to warn me my car brakes were worn out.

Dream of Ascending to the Heavens

I had the strangest dream sometime back about 7 years ago, I dreamt a pair of hands touched my face and my spirit left my body and I was ascending to the heavens at such a great speed that I almost disintegrate into pieces, my heart felt it had just leaped forward at maximum light speed. Then I heard angels saying bring him up with us. I pleaded with the one who sent me up and said please stop for a while, then my spirit returned slowly for a while. A few seconds later, the pair of hands touched my face again and I went up once again into the heavens and this time I was accustomed to the speed and I did not complained. Then the journey ended naturally and I returned back to my body and my room which was filled with light became dark again. Now my life is on the other leg of this ascension, the first was an instant rise to success then followed by a period of rest which I had experienced in my life without a job for 2 years, and now I have returned back to work again.

Dream of Work Situation in the Company

A few years ago, I had a dream of my Boss, the CEO that he was all alone his factory with all the metal cupboards surrounding him. He was alone in darkness with his table and chair and the entire factory was in darkness, no one was with him. A few days later, the Managing Director, General Manager, and Engineering Director all resigned and he was left alone to manage the company. At that time, I did not know this was happening so I told him this dream and he was very surprised to hear what I was saying. God had shown me the present state of the company which I worked in.

Dream of God’s Judgment

Most recently I dreamt that the mountain of rocks came crashing down on the earth and it was an avalanche of huge rocks. Our little Christian business group was at the hotel resort in the mountains with a large church group. Suddenly without warning the rocks were coming down on us. Fortunately, a solid wall which must have been a few feet thick came from below the ground and shielded us from this avalanche. In the dream, I asked the manager when this wall was designed and he told me 18 years ago. That would be in the year 1992. This rock is judgment upon the earth and Jesus is the rock, and it will come on his church first.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I am writing these things to share with you that only the chosen ones can have such prophetic dreams from God and they all mean something real and true. Not all dreams are prophetic in nature; some are from our soul which is not in agreement with our mind and spirit. So they manifest as dreams to warn us of this imbalance of body mind and spirit. These three things must always be in agreement before we can achieve anything meaningful; else it’s a bunch of incomplete assignments in our lives done without much conviction and zeal.

I write not to boast but to testify that God give me dreams to help me have a better life. He is my refuge and my strength forever more. God gave Abraham a dream, he gave Jacob a dream, he gave Joseph a dream, he gave Solomon a dream, and he gave Nebuchadnezzar a dream, he gave Abimelech a dream, he gave Joseph, Mary’s husband a dream. God gave his people dreams to tell them what is to come, and guided them through dangerous paths and brought them all into their destiny. In life, we will have our troubles but because Jesus Christ has conquered death, he can lead us to a peaceful life and get us out of our troubles, no matter what troubles you may be in. So it’s good to know that God gives us dreams to help us.

But what about those people who don’t seem to have any such dreams. What can they do?

James 4:2 You want something but don’t get it. You kill and covet, but you cannot have what you want. You quarrel and fight. You do not have, because you do not ask God.

Yes, God can give you this gift if you asked him to guide you through your dreams. Pray and asked him to give you the Holy Spirit which comforts us. But when he give you those dreams, please do not be like stubborn mules, obey his warning and his decree then you shall be prosperous and successful in whatever you do. I was given such dreams because I had asked God to speak to me in dreams and he did. When God speaks to you in dreams, it shall be very clear and vivid and it’s very simple and short.

1 Samuel 15:23 For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king.”

When dreams come and you don’t obey and follow its guidance, they will start to fade away and will not come again. When God speaks and you don’t listen and obey, he will stop speaking and your days will be like iron and bronze. Should you have a dream and wants an interpretation, just write me an email and I will have it interpreted within days and I am giving it away free of charge. Now if you want to know more about the benefits of being a real Christian come to my website at Kingscepter.com or send me an email at prophet3333@yahoo.com. God bless you all.

The Greatest Of Gifts

One of the greatest gifts God has given every one of us has been music – for all places and purposes. The imagination and ingenuity to create different styles of sound, with a variety of instruments, using air from our lungs, lips and larynx, the striking of our hands and feet, as well as our fingers to strum, stroke or pluck strings or drum heads. Equipped with this special gift, God has created in our mind a multitude of sounds, tempo and lyrics to enrich our musical creation and enjoyment.

Something to Eat for $3.16

Be very careful how you treat people, God may be trying to bless you through that very same individual. When you meditate on “Light Traffic” you will see how God is always speaking, but sometimes we have become too busy, too distracted to be still and see the messages.

The Red and Green Thankful Meditation

When we see the color Red, let our meditation be on Jesus Christ and the precious blood He shed for each of us for the remission of our sins. When we see the color Green, let our meditation be on the fact that Jesus came to this Earth to give His Life for us. When you meditate on “Light Traffic” you will see how God is always speaking, but sometimes we have become too busy, too distracted to be still and see the messages.

The Hot Streak and the Double Portion Blessing

There is the idea of the hot streak which may seem to come suddenly and out of no where but this might also be the appearance of the double portion blessing from the hand of the Lord to you personally.

Prophetic Proclamation without any authorization – 2011 the year of disgrace

This topic has been a very sensitive issue for most prophetic people who are The words in the bible were inspired by the Holy Spirit and God himself. Prophecy comes from the Holy Spirit of God through his will and no one should proclaim a word which is not ordained by God, no one for the consequences are real.

Time to Face the Truth – Do you know your God?

Many church goers do not know their God, and I mean they have no relationship with God. They prefer to read the bible, go to church and meeting people and converse in religious language but inside they are dry as the dead bones in the Book of Ezekiel. Reading the bible can never replace experiencing God in our lives.

How Great are the Big Mega Churches of God?

Have you not heard of this sentence, “Filling a church with people means nothing if lives are not transformed.”? God told us that many blind guides will come and lead the people astray even the elites will be fooled. The Kingdom of God is real very real and it affects whatever happens on earth and our daily life. The Gospel will be propagated not by power nor by might but by my Spirit, says the Lord.

Christians are blessed with Prophecy through Dreams

Many non believers think that being a Christian has extreme handicaps. That is a lie and an unfounded truth.

In this article, I will share with you the numerous dreams which God had given to me and their direct application in my daily life.

The Delusion of the thirty, sixty and hundred fold for monetary returns – twisting the Word of God

Traditionally when the church needed money, many will pray and asked God for their provision and that was it. The spirit of God would move the chosen people to give and the church would have just enough to do the work for God. Nowadays, Pastor would quote scripture to tell his congregation that Matthew and Mark speaks of giving to God and receiving the thirty, sixty and hundred fold returns if they gave unto God. Essentially, the Seed refers to the Word of God and nothing else.

What is the difference between receiving something by faith and by assumption?

They frequently say the road to hell is paved with many good intentions. This is very true. I have only recently begun to accept the fact that Christians can be sincerely wrong. Their sincerity has nothing to do with the truth of a matter. I can prophesy peace comfort and prosperity on a person but that will not cause a person to have peace, comfort and wealth as long as it is not ordained by God. True faith is not presumption, its based on real promises which can only be given from God.

The Problem With Reading the Bible Using Our Human Understanding – dead letters

Many new Christians or immature sheep don’t understand that the bible can not be read with a logical human mind. Don’t get me wrong, we need to have a clear and healthy mind to read the bible of course, but to use the word within, we can not use our human logic. The bible is very simple and children can understand it yet it is as deep as the deepest ocean as no wise man can read it with sufficient human understanding. Paul said the letter kills but the Spirit giveth life

Why are Christians still unhappy even after they have been saved?

Why are Christians still unhappy even after they have seen saved? Written by Joseph Ho, June 3rd 2010. Most of the time Christians remain unhappy even after receiving Christ Jesus and having the gift of salvation from eternal damnation and fires of hell. Now, why is this the case? I have seen many Christians who are unhappy. How can true Christians be unhappy? Those who are unhappy do not understand the meaning of being a Christian.
