The theology they teach says that "the Holy Spirit always does 'new things,' and is not stuck in the past, but is committed to liberation."

The Jesus Seminar is their friend because they get to cast away contradictory portions of scripture. They do not view scripture as their friend.

If they think that gay is a natural God given state of being, then do they think Jesus was gay too? if HE was everything human, this would have to include gay too, no?

They should form a new faith and worhip a bisexual God. This I could accept. But, corrupting existing religions is SO much easier. Why start new when you can simply take over?

Thanks for the info on Santorum. Sure seems to me that Article X of the Bill or Rights makes it an issue for the States - since it is not specifically mentioned in the Constitution.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Are you libertarian? Or close to being so?

I guess it depends on the issue.

I am actually a Democrat turned Republican thanks to Reagan, and perhaps partially due to my Christian conversion in my late teens.

I consider myself mostly conservative, but I'm sure many here would disagree with that.

I'm waiting for an answer from Jorge. I think he's a libertarian Christian.

Many responses are Christian. Now that I think of it, his political responses are all libertarian.

Libertarian Christian is an extremely difficult balance. It's virtually impossible to be consistent, imho.

Take it easy on him for a while longer.

Now, how do they justify this writing of the Apostle Paul to the Corinthians?
Corinth was a place where sex was a form of worship and sex and church went together. Priests and priestesses were there to be done to or be done by according to history. So Paul, who started the church there wrote them this letter.

1 Corinthians 6:13-20

13. "Food for the stomach and the stomach for food"--but God will destroy them both. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.
14. By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.
15. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never!
16. Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, "The two will become one flesh."
17. But he who unites himself with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
18. Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.
19. Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;
20. you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

Seems like the "Sexually Inclusive Church" wants to turn the Apostle Paul's work a 180 degrees and make the "Church" back into the former "Corinth" instead of turning the of Corinthians into a "Church."

Give me a major break.

Show me where I misinterpreted Santorum's remarks.
The fact is you can't.

He clearly addressed the issue of privacy when it came to sex between consenting adults in the context of the sodomy case...and warned about the "dangers" of saying adultery and homosexuality were OK.

Now unless he was advocating the sex police busting down the bedroom doors of consenting adults and arresting them for acts of adultery and homosexuality, then his point is moot. And he should have thought before he spoke.

Put me on your ping list please.

2 Timothy 3
1   This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
2   For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
3   Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
4   Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
5   Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
6   For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
7   Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
8   Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith.
9   But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as their's also was.
10   But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience,
11   Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.
12   Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13   But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
14   But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
15   And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
16   All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17   That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

The point is not moot. It's a powerful, compelling statement on the direction of our culture, just the kind of truth that we say we want to know from our politicians. And if you care for freedom, you should be far more alarmed at yet another "right" being interpreted into the Constitution at the whim of the courts - at least as alarmed as Sen. Santorum, enough to say something about it.

He turned out to be totally correct. Since Lawrence v. Texas we have been buried in a virtual avalanche of homosexual initiatives and propoganda. The attack on the institution of marriage alone has the potential to do grievous damage to this country, to say nothing of the damage that is done to people who are encouraged to pursue their own degradation.

Whether you agree with it or not, the question you ask is within the rights of the States to answer. If they choose to prohibit homosexuality and adultery, it is their right to do so. To attack the entire notion of legislating on those matters runs in contravention with millenia of history. Doing so therefore puts the burden of proof on you to make your case. When you simply spit epithets instead of presenting a reasonable case, your remarks cannot be considered to be rational argument.

Kolodny, an author and former national coordinator for The National Bisexual Network, was leading a workshop called “Blessed Bi Spirit: Bisexual People of Faith.” Although focusing mostly on bisexuality, Kolodny, who is Jewish, explained that she could not conclude the session without discussing polyamory.
_______________

Ok, let's forget for a moment about all of the passages that deal with sexual promiscuity and unnatural sexual behaviors. Do homosexuals believe in idols? Did they ever consider that the fact that they are so focused on their sexuality is perhaps making an idol out of it?

I am so sick of these people, I really am. There seems to be no boundary to the kind of sexual deviancies they are willing to endorse. What is next--a one-night stand is holy and monogamous at least for a few hours? Perhaps a rape is holy in some way? How about child molestation? Sick bastards! What's even more mind boggling is the fact that anyone who does not engage in these activities and calls themselves Christian would agree to it.

Santorum believes that sexuality is not just a private matter between consenting adults.

He believes it does have an impact on the health and welfare of the society at large.

Therefore, he thinks it is not unusual for the legislature to place restrictions when the evidence says it is necessary.

We took a youth group there once on a gay day.

At that time, the park said that the "gays" declare their own days and don't tell anyone.

Perhaps you mean the gnostic/christian cults?

Paul indicates that many were Saved from destructive sexuality, and he condemned some who wandered back into it; but there's no indication that the orthodox believers ever considered unnatural sexuality to be blessed.

Gnostics did; backsliders did....John suggests that Pergamum and Thyatira were both "types" of churches AND problem-plagued churches.

Is that what you mean?

Right. The legislature is going to determine that because certain sexual behaviors are unhealthy that they are going to outlaw them and direct police to bust down bedroom doors to stop people from engaging in them.
Sorry, but even the Supreme Court agreed this was not going to happen.

It really is ridiculous, and Santorum (who I like otherwise) made a fool out of himself on this issue.

Do a quick study on Paganism In Post-Moral America

POST-MORAL AMERICA
the union of paganism and technology

by

Dorothy Anne Seese

Nothing short of national revival can save America from itself, its lusts, greed, worship of technology and exaltation of all that is pagan and degrading to the individual human being.

A nation has fallen flat on its face and barely anyone among the general public sees the extent of the evil (beyond the local convenience store robberies or driveby shootings) to the root causes of America's rush of the lemmings toward the precipice.

The national motto may still be "In God We Trust" but the majority of Americans and others living here, legally or illegally, have their own gods, baals, idols, gargoyles and pagan shrines of moral debauchery.

Humans are social beings, and for millennia the basic structure of society was the family, the basic moral unit was the integrity of the individual.  People need to belong, and until the 1970's era, people belonged to the family unit.  Now they either don't belong anywhere, or the government assigns them as children to some "unit" under their supervision.  Rugged individualism was once an admirable trait instilled into children from generation to generation, the true legacy of the family and the culture of character.  Any individualism is now brought under control by the federalized school system in favor of the collective class.

We have government-mandated or government-sanctioned groupthink coming out of institutions of higher idiocy like Berkeley (which has been a blight on the educational scene for at least six decades).  The purpose is to make the state and technology the relative moral compass and the family's moral influence irrelevant.  They have been very successful at what they are doing.  The same is true of most of our institutions of higher learning, Berkeley just happened to be a leader in this movement and a continuing fountainhead of mental and moral poisoning from academia.

We have a federal republic, but our elected representatives have failed to represent us, the citizens, and have represented either their own interests or that of the collectivist state and statism, demonstrating total contempt for their office and their constituents.  Rather than leading toward a higher pinnacle of moral excellence, our representatives in many if not most instances revel in their own debauchery and attempt to persuade the people of their districts or states that any deviant behaviors are "only about sex."

Lack of character in one area makes anyone highly suspect of possessing a faulty moral compass in other areas of their life and thought.

In the march toward one world governance, one world religion and one global federation of peoples, all the old boundaries are being tossed out like used Kleenex.

Individual morality has at its foundation a belief system that our once Christian-oriented nation will no longer tolerate.  Hence the nativity scene has nearly been obliterated from all public exhibitions at Christmas, replaced totally by Santa and anything non-Christian that people want to toss into the tinseltown, commercialized displays.

Quantity is the object, quality has only a relative, changing meaning, and virtue is ridiculed.

A nation such as this, that has fallen so far into the worship of itself, the exaltation of man's elitist rule and the denigration of the Creator is in for a hard, fast fall right off the precipice of national extinction.  Oaths of office have become meaningless rituals or recitations; vows and covenants are made to be broken; the home is the roof over one's head and not the residence of the heart's affections.  This type of social "order" is nothing but disorder under government supervision enforced by irrational laws to ensure its implementation.

We were once concerned about invasion of privacy, and now we face the impending invasion of our bodies by foreign objects ranging from government-wielded vaccination needles to mandatory implanted tracking devices.

We elected representatives and leaders, but after they were elected, we discovered that they were agents of the collectivist state or emissaries of tyranny.  Our judiciary has become complicit by upholding all that is ungodly and anti-individualistic while condoning, upholding and even wresting the Constitution and Bill of Rights to accommodate the statist agenda.

The government now owns the land, is buying up the water, controlling the means of food production, engaging in "rural cleansing" to get individualists off privately owned land, protecting fish that can be purchased in cans at the local grocery store, protecting bugs that would be more useful if exterminated and a selection of birds that few have ever seen or care to see.  Loggers are out of work while forests burn.  Environmentalists are still pushing their "global warming" efforts in spite of the fact that the polar ice caps on Mars are melting under the heat of the sun without human intervention.

Moral compass?  In a world of crackpots with leaders who worship themselves, theatrical stars who look like refugees from an insane ward or a cheap brothel, and kids dressed in gangsta clothes that express their attitude with chains and tongue piercings?  Not for those groups.

Moral compass?  When we tossed God out of our nation and our schools, our courts and public buildings, we threw the compass overboard.

Now ... we didn't have today's technology fifty or sixty years ago ... but were we a freer people with more individual freedom and respect for life, liberty and individual rights?  Did "home" still have real meaning?  Were children the property of their parents til age of majority rather than the state?  Did we have meaning to being an "American" other than coming here to milk the cash cow?

We're in post-moral America ... one that can't last long without a national revival that will return to us, as a people, our moral compass.  Absent that, the next generations will simply be cloned monsters that will bring down on us and our world not only a hybrid race of humanoid things, but the wrath of Almighty God (not Allah), which wrath we will have earned to the fullest extent of the judgment executed.

And justice it will be.

Personally, I do believe in the state legislatures having authority to establish quarantine laws and behavior laws when the issue is individual or public health.

It is a good thing to outlaw prostitution. There's really no significant difference between that and outlawing male to male and female to female sex.
