Thanks for your kind ping.

Some of us have prayed that pernicious, relentless, demonized, assaultive evil would be exposed in broad daylight.

BLESSED BE THE NAME OF THE LORD.
BLESSED BE THE WORD OF THE LORD.
BLESSED BE THE WAYS OF THE LORD.

THANK YOU LORD FOR UPHOLDING YOUR GLORY.
THANK YOU LORD FOR UPHOLDING YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
THANK YOU LORD FOR YOUR BLOOD THAT MAKES WHOSOEVER WILL, RIGHTEOUS.

IN YOUR PRECIOUS NAME, LORD JESUS.

Evidently you are unaware of or disbelieve that Soddom and Gomorrah were obliterated by God with fire from Heaven . . . a rather localized geographic site. There were many such examples in the Old Testament.

You need a few days at the beach or something...

I do believe that that area around the Dead Sea, that in ancient times was known as Sodom and Gomorrah not only existed, but was destroyed...but these early bible fables were written by sandal wearing sheep herders to try to explain the devastation(one of the latest thoughts was possibly a space rock) and perhaps to explain the many pillars of salt the dot the coast of the Dead Sea there..

no more....most Christian Churches and most Jewish sects consider it to be no more than that..

Hello Quix,.......... I don’t think things are going to get better and more of these degenerates will be in political positions...who will definately be on board with Obama to change the ‘face’ of this nation.

We are living in the time of calling evil good and good evil...’the deception’ certainly is gaining momentum.

The fact that the creatures outside Lot’s door were ready to rape ANGELS FROM ALMIGHTY GOD shows the lengths that such demonized mortals will go.

Just goes to show the great extent their appetite for perverted sex can go...and does so today as well. It's no wonder it's called a "burning fire" within them.

Plenty true.

I don’t KNOW that the burning fire within of such perversion is automatically more intense than the burning fire of rebellious anger & defiance against God or greed or control-addictions or vengeful murder . . . given the direct channel to the dopamine highs . . . and the demonic element . . . it could well be.

A few months back on a euthanasia thread Quix indicated that he agreed with me completely on a comment I had made, I figured I would return the gesture.

Seriously though, I am 100% certain that within the next decade or so devout Christians (Protestant, Orthodox and Catholics) are going to be imprisoned for professing the belief that Biblical morality must be adhered to, so I suppose we should probably learn to get along BEFORE we are thrown in the gulags together.

Should Free Republic be closed down for advocating the genocide of gay men

I thought about the lunacy in this statement and decided to provide some additional thought.

Given that genocide is defined as the systematic destruction of a group. It can be shown that objectively the left advocates and promotes genocide as a rule. The left just calls it 'pretty names' like 'choice' and 'gay pride'.

Any group that chooses not to procreate or kills its potential offspring or promotes unhealthy sexual practices that are self destructive and deadly is by the very definition suicidal e.g. genocidal. The left promotes this and that is why they are rightly termed the culture of death.

Since conservatives oppose the leftist culture of death it seems odd that conservative are hated by the useful idiots so much. It is as if the left is comprised of brainwashed useful idiots that act against their won interests while claiming the opposite...

Silly silly leftists...

Certainly those who truly Love God are going to be assaulted increasingly by the satanic world government. Those who love must love others . . . and be willing to lay down our lives as broken bread and poured out wine for one another as well as . . . for a hurting world.

It’s . . . following Christ.

Addictive cravings of all kinds would likely be characterized as such . . . and they all trigger dopamine highs. Sexual stuff seems to be amongst the more intense. Some drugs are reportedly more so.

Perhaps you could state your points more clearly.

I don’t know if you are talking about demonization factors or what . . .

Lust . . . of whatever levels toward whatever objects has to register on the brain of the individual as well as on the lymbic system to have any serious influence.

I could easily agree that homosexual lust appears to be of above average intensity if one is talking about such individuals as a group compared to other individuals in groups lusting after other objects.

I’m not sure what that says or means.

Individuals within those groups would be on a continuum—of below average to above average in the typical bell curve on those factors.

Homosexuals a standard deviation below average in those ‘burning lust’ factors would probably experience LESS of such intense burning than someone who was one standard deviaion above average on lusting after chocolate ice cream.

Is it MORE likely that there would be MORE of a demonic tweak to such burning with homosexual lusting than with lusting after chocolate ice cream? Perhaps. Though I’ve known some ice cream lusters who might well argue the point.

I didn’t mention anything demonic Quix. So I don’t know how that has much if anything to do with this as these people do very well fueling thier own fire without any help. Most are pretty much fried in their thinking once this takes hold.

Again we see that evidenced from the Sentor who spoke out stumbling over his own tongue and gibber jabbering about nothing at all, as he attempted to explain what passing the bill ment to him. He was just plain old mush minded.

I do believe fully that the acts they practice does and will have impact on their brains as it does on the rest of their body. It would be difficult for anyone to convince me that their brain matter isn’t affected by poking their thing a lings where the body is used for “sewage” disposal and spreading that stuff throughout...with all the breakage etc. that stuff gets into the bloodstream.

“The life of the body is in the blood” comes to mind. One simply cannot do those things without it affecting the entire body..as well as the brain.

Certainly Scripture talks about such being given over to a depraved mind etc.

And, evidently, more so than other sins.

Nevertheless, all sin, to some degree depraves the mind.

...more so than other sins.

I think that because God was specific about this particular sin, naming it clearly ...and all which is written of it, it has devastating consequences for those who practice as well as those around them and society as a whole.

It is literally a dead ended deal and offers nothing what so ever to society...nor to the individual. Too many do not realize the vileness of it and it's destructive path. The fact God gives them over to a depraved mind says volumes. Though all sin has it's consequences some are just so endless in their impact.

Excellent summation, DBeers. Here is one of my favorite Old Testament psalms on the subject:

Proverbs 5: A Warning Against Adultery

1 My son, pay attention to my wisdom,
turn your ear to my words of insight,
2 that you may maintain discretion
and your lips may preserve knowledge...

15 Drink water from your own cistern,
running water from your own well.
16 Should your springs overflow in the streets,
your streams of water in the public squares?
17 Let them be yours alone,
never to be shared with strangers.
18 May your fountain be blessed,
and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth....

21 For your ways are in full view of the LORD,
and he examines all your paths.
22 The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them;
the cords of their sins hold them fast.
23 For lack of discipline they will die,
led astray by their own great folly.
