    It’s a personal issue.”

    Wrong "Miss" Wager, your perverted, grotesque lifestyle is a very important issue to the parents of the children who you teach. If you were my grand children's teacher I'm certain that my son and daughter in law would immediately arrange to home school them if at all possible, or transfer them to a private school, preferably a private Christian school, if home schooling was not possible. In fact, my own 2 grandchildren,(grades 7&12) are both being schooled by their mother, and both are receiving a demonstrably better education than their contemporaries in local public schools, and probably better than almost all other public schools.

    A quality education is important in today's dog eat dog economy. But high moral standards are even more important, and a kid gets both by home schooling, or at least by a good private school.

    heralding the burning of Jews in hell for all eternity if they don't admit their evilness and convert on the spot.

    That's not exactly what we evangelicals believe. We believe that anyone, Jew or gentile, who believes that he/she will be saved from eternal damnation by his/her racial heritage and/or good works is deceived. The doctrine of the Protestant Christian faith is salvation by grace through faith alone apart from good works, and that saving faith results in good works and repentance of past sins.

    We, or at least I, believe that although good works won't save anyone they're the inevitable result of salvation by faith in Jesus Christ. Therefore, a total lack of good works and no repentance of his/her sins means that the supposedly saved person most likely isn't.

    Look at what he is doing with Israel.

    In the case of Israel Obama's going up against God, and he won't get very far with that.

    I realize that Catholics and most traditional Christian denominations believe and teach that God's promises to ancient Israel were nullified when the Jews persuaded the Roman occupiers to crucify Jesus. But most evangelical Christians believe that His promises to Israel were unconditional, and Israel as a nation is now back in her promised land, at least a part of it, after 2000 years of exile among the nations of the world.

    If that's true, and I believe it is, no nation or alliance of nations on earth can drive the Israelis out of their promised land. God's promise to Abraham was never invalidated, even though today's secular Jews both in Israel, the U.S., and many other nations don't realize that.

    Problem is, today's "ordinary citizen voter" has no "sacred honor", he/she traded it for government handouts several generations ago. Today's average Joe Shmo voter is primarily interested in how much of the government's goodies he/she can get without paying anything or assuming any responsibility for his/her own welfare. The trouble with that is that the relatively few whose wealth the government steals will at some point stop producing wealth and simply join the taking class. IMHO we aren't very far away from that point now.

    Neither Netanyahu, the US, Obama, nor the muslim terrorists will decide what happens in and to the land that God gave in perpetuity to Israel's father Abraham, God settled that matter 4000 years ago. The middle ages church taught that God's promise was negated by Israel's rejection of Jesus as it's promised Messiah, and that the nation of Israel ceased to exist in 70AD when it was destroyed by Rome and it's people were driven from their promised land. But it's teaching was badly mistaken, God's promise was unconditional and He doesn't break His promises.

    BTW, the land promised to Abraham is much, much larger than the present state of Israel. Israel's promised land extends from the river of Egypt, aka the Nile, to the Euphrates, see Genesis ch15 v18. That promise seems almost impossible to be fulfilled in today's world, but then so did His promise that Israel's people would be regathered to their God-given homeland after many centuries of exile among all the nations of the world.

    I have never heard about the idea of homosexuality preceding the days of Noah

    Read Romans ch 1 vs 25-27. Those verses describe homosexual acts that Paul cites as having been universally practiced by both males and females in the antediluvian world.

    As you said, Paul also cites murder and nature worship as widespread sinful practices (vs 21-23) that caused God to destroy the antediluvian world. However, he gives equal weight to the apparently common practice of homosexual sins as another cause for God to destroy all the antediluvians except righteous Noah and his family. I think that today's world is probably even more depraved in God's eyes than the antediluvian world was, and He says that it will be destroyed by fire next time.

    I think the problem described in Romans 1 is exactly the point of the article.

    Exactly right, our current society is almost exactly as it was in the days of Noah. The antediluvian world's people (except righteous Noah's family) had descended into gross homosexual depravity, and ours isn't too far from that same condition. God cleansed that depraved world's people with a universal flood, but He warns mankind that He will cleanse this current debauched world with fire.

    I don't like to contemplate the severe judgment that God will impose on those societies, especially ours, that approve and practice homosexual depravity on a large scale, but they have been warned and have chosen to ignore the warning. Jesus Christ first came as a sacrificial lamb. But He will return to a future world cleansed of all sin and unrepentant sinners as the Lion of the tribe of Judah, and every human being will confess that He is Lord of Heaven and Earth.

    Everyone with an operable brain cell knows that Iran will continue it's efforts to get nuclear weapons one way or another unless it's stopped by a superior armed force. Israel's armed forces are numerically inferior to Iran's, but according to everything I have read about it, they are vastly superior in quality. Given that situation, I can't believe that Netanyahu will allow Iran to develop nuclear capability without intervening with military force unless the western powers, i.e., the US & UK, can somehow persuade or force Iran's fanatical government to cease it's development of a nuke.

    However, given Obummer's very obvious hostility to Israel and his sympathy for the Muslim world's quest for global domination, I don't think he will raise a pinky finger to deter Iran's quest for nuclear weapons. As for my viewpoint, the safety and preservation of Israel as the only free, democratic, western-oriented nation in that crucially important part of the world takes precedence over all other considerations, including the nuclear destruction of the entire Iranian nation if it comes to that. As a bible-believing fundamentalist Christian, I believe that Israel will eventually recognize Jesus Christ as it's divine King who will return to earth and rule the entire world with Jerusalem as His capitol. The prospect of that future situation doesn't allow for a demonic Muslim government in any part of the universe, and who in a right mind wouldn't hope and pray for that final outcome?

    Ben Carson might as well cancel his Presidential Exploratory Committee. He’s done.

    Yep, he was just dropped from my list of people I would heartily support if he were to run for office. A year or so ago my daughter attended a dinner at which he spoke, and she came away excited that he might run for high public office, possibly the presidency. But if he's already caving in to the homo crowd's demand for legal and social acceptance of their perverted sexual practices he's off my list.

    Homosexual acts are condemned as heinous sin in my bible, and in the 1st chapter of Paul's letter to the Christians in Rome he identifies practice of that perversion as THE sin, not just A sin, for which God destroyed the ancient world, (except righteous Noah's family) with a universal flood. Many centuries later rich and powerful nations such as Egypt, Greece, Rome, etc, elevated that same abominable practice to the status of an almost universally approved and widely practiced virtue, and all those nations were likewise brought down to ruin and subservience by the hand of God.

    By the same token, if and when the majority of Americans accept homosexual depravity as normal, legal, and sinless acts God won't spare it any more so than he did the once great, rich, and powerful nations in which Paul lived. The US became a great, rich, and dominant world power because God honored the Christian beliefs and practices of it's leaders and ordinary people alike, and He can and I believe will allow destruction of what he once built because of our rejection of Him and His laws.

    Hey wait a sec, we as a nation are already mere inches away from that depraved status, and after 2+ centuries of unprecedented liberty, wealth, and power under the favor and protection of Almighty God the US is falling from His grace and favor like water over Niagara falls. Thanks be to God I probably won't be here to see the inevitable conclusion to America's death spiral (I'm 77 years young), but most of you reading this will.

    There's no valid reason for carry permits, people who don't qualify because they broke a law somewhere aren't going to be concerned about breaking another law. Such laws only make it more difficult for those who don't make a habit of breaking laws reluctant to go through what is a usually lengthy investigation in order to qualify for a Constitutionally guaranteed right.

    Of course the $$$ the permits cost play a part, as they do in almost all dealings with the state, and permits are just one more way to put the squeeze on our billfolds. Here in GA it cost me approximately $70 + or - for a 4 year permit, I don't remember exactly.

    OK, you might say that's a small price to pay for the protection it affords myself and my wife. But if I look at it that way then all my other Constitutionally guaranteed rights can also be sold to me rather having been bought and paid for in the blood of the Founding Father's who gave us those guarantees over 2 centuries ago.

    Just my take on the matter, others may see it differently and that's another right the state may some day decide to sell rather than acknowledge as a basic human right. I don't have to pay for the right to speak my mind, why do I have to pay to exercise my 2nd Amendment rights?

    My case is that we welcome gays into the legal institution of marriage because to continue to fight against it is contrary to spirit of our Constitution.

    My case is that the holy, divinely inspired Word of God trumps even the spirit of our Constitution, and He has condemned homosexual acts, (not necessarily homosexual orientation itself,) as sin. It would follow that those who commit those acts in spite of knowing they are sinning are under His condemnation, and governments that legitimize that sin will come under His judgement. If anyone doubts that homosexual acts, not homosexual orientation, is sin against God just read the 1st chapter of Paul's epistle to the Roman Christians.

    I can have pity on those who practice that sad and dangerous lifestyle, but I can't sanction that lifestyle as a legitimate act of marriage. Marriage was created and established by God in the Garden of Eden, and His version is the only one I can or will acknowledge as legitimate, lawful marriage. What I acknowledge won't count for anything in the argument, but what God's retribution for America's gross violation of His holy law will.

    and be baptized and live for Him

    Amen to all you said, but I may, emphasis on may, differ slightly on one point if I correctly understand your position in re water baptism.

    As a long time Baptist descended from a long line of Baptist pastors and horseback evangelists I fully agree that baptism by immersion is the biblicaly correct follow-up to acceptance of Jesus as Lord and Savior. However, and here's where may have to agree to disagree, I don't believe that it's necessary in order to gain salvation. For just one well known example,the thief on the cross wasn't baptized in water because of his horrible situation, but he had the Lord's promise of Heaven that very day.

    OK, perhaps he was granted an exception by Jesus himself due only to his horrible situation. But I have trouble believing that because there are quite a few New Testament passages in which the writer states the essential requirements for salvation, Romans 10: vs 9&10 for one and verse 13 for another, and water baptism is not mentioned.

    To put it as briefly as I can, I firmly believe that everyone who comes to Jesus Christ for salvation should by all means be baptized by immersion after attaining salvation through faith alone. However, if circumstances make water baptism impossible or extremely difficult to perform, or if the new convert is taught otherwise, he or she is still a born again child of God from the moment he or she came to faith in Jesus Christ and entrusted his/her eternal life to Him.

    I think we can probably agree on the essentials of salvation, and I'm not interested in arguing with a brother or sister in Christ. I just wanted to make it clear to other possible readers that salvation comes by faith alone, not by any works of righteousness that we may do after that decision, water baptism included.

    BTW, my belief on this subject may have been fostered by the beliefs of my old-time bible believing Methodist paternal grandparents. No two people who I have ever known were any more devout born again Christians than those two saints, and they were sprinkled, not immersed. My devout Baptist grandparents who knew them very well would heartily agree with my rock solid conviction regarding their salvation without immersion.

    Come to think of it, I'm sure they all four now agree on every point of doctrine. They have been closely associating with each other in Heaven for well over one half century, and I can hardly wait to be reunited with them along with my parents and the rest of my born again family. I'm now well into my 78th year on this sin-cursed ball of dirt with quite a few health issues, so I probably don't have long to wait. And that prospect frightens me not one whit, just the opposite. And that's only because my beloved Savior waits for me with open arms.

    Luther didn't garble the Galatians verses, and Paul certainly didn't limit his comments on law keeping to Jewish law. Salvation is by grace through faith alone. Works, whether by observing Jewish laws and feast days, by obeying the 10 commandments, or by any sacrament established by the Roman church or any protestant denomination have no part in salvation by grace through faith in the blood sacrifice made once for all by our Savior. No mortal man can keep all of God's laws for all of his or her life. But the Son of God Himself, the 2nd personage of the Holy Trinity, Jesus Christ, could and did. And his perfect, sinless life is credited to our account when we accept Him as Lord and Savior.

    That doesn't mean that we can sin and not pay a price for it, we can't. We pay a price for breaking God's law by falling out of fellowship with our Lord and forfeiting, temporarily at least, the blessings of a close personal relationship with Him, but not by losing our irreversible salvation. My salvation was paid for in full on the cross in my precious Savior's sinless blood, and "PAID IN FULL" is written large over God's record of my sin debt. I strive daily to obey his laws with the aid of the ever present Holy Spirit, but I fail more often than I succeed. If not for Jesus' boundless grace I would be condemned to the lowest level of hell, but with Him all things are possible, even the salvation of my eternal soul.

    No innocent person will ever suffer at His hand.

    The only innocents are those of us who have been declared righteous by virtue of our acceptance of and faith in Jesus Christ as our divine Lord and Savior. Man is born in sin, and the only remedy for that sin is to be born again as an innocent man or woman. That 2nd birth is the result of the believer's faith in Jesus Christ as God's divine, sinless Son who by his death on the cross paid the penalty for our all our sins past, present, and future.

    Not many of today's mainline protestant pastors or Catholic priests who preach salvation by good works will agree with this, but the Holy Spirit who wrote my bible does.

    Romans ch 10 v 9-10:"That if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from death you will be saved, for it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved."

    I believe that we have come to the point where a majority of our so-called "representatives" in both houses are primarily interested only in keeping their cushy, privileged, high paying jobs, and the best interests of the nation and it's people are among the least of their concerns.

    Big talk by the people who ostensibly represent me in Congress doesn't cut it. I want to see traitorous heads roll, and the traitorous head I want most to see roll sits (now and then) in the Oval Office.

    Note to any Secret Service personnel who may be monitoring FR today; the term "heads roll" is only figurative.

    And the sad part of it is that none of us are confident about what they will do.

    Oh I'm quite confident about what they will do, run off at their mouths but do absolutely nothing else. We no longer have have a Constitutional Government, we now have something very similar to an absolute monarchy. Throughout most of history monarchs have only been unseated by armed force, and I don't believe that will happen in today's America.

    "The essence of constitutionalism is the control of power by its distribution among several state organs or offices in such a way that they are each subjected to reciprocal controls and forced to cooperate in formulating the will of the state"" per Encyclopedia Britannica.

    The US is finished as a constitutional republic, just as some of us FR old timers predicted almost two decades ago. I just didn't expect it to happen quite this soon or quite this peacefully.

    I am happy to be among the partisans.

    And I'm a Baptist who's happy to stand beside you.

    If our Constitutionally guaranteed freedom of religion is lost, and IMHO it will eventually come to that, the United States we love and cherish will fade away into history just as every other great nation through out history that defied God's laws has. No entity on earth, neither man nor nation, can spit in God's eye and continue to live and prosper for very long, and the US is rapidly nearing the limit that He will tolerate.

    Since the day Obama stood on the Capitol steps and swore before God and man to protect and obey the Constitution of the United States.

    I'll be praying for a successful outcome for your treatment. I have undergone 2 cancer operations this year myself, and just last week I learned that the latest radioactive iodine body scan didn't show any cancer cells in my body. I can't prove it of course, but I have no doubt that the prayers of myself, my family, and my brothers and sisters in Christ were the real reasons for my successful surgeries and rapid recoveries. I pray that you will have that same experience.

    If you haven't yet been born into God's family by confessing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and believing that God raised Him from death, (see Romans ch 10 v 9) I urge you with all my heart to do so now. Nothing else is as important as our salvation, because our lives here and now are of no importance whatsoever compared to the matter of where we will spend eternity.

    According to many Christian bible scholars Jesus Christ will return to earth in His human body at some future time, and then he will reign over all the earth from his earthly father David's throne in Jerusalem. Apparently Muslims make a similar claim for their make-believe god Allah.

    If and when it comes down to a battle between Jesus Christ and Allah over who will rule the world, I don't have any doubt about who will win.

    I have absolutely no like for Perdue, but I will crawl over broken glass to vote for him

    Same here, I'm disappointed by his win, but his faults are not as important as is taking control of the Senate out of Harry Reid's despicable hands. The most crucial thing in this election is getting control of the Senate while there may still be enough time to save us from full-blown socialism that Obama and his cohorts are determined to force on us like it or not.

    Obama may have only 2 more years left to bring the US down to wreck and ruin as he wants us to be, but if Harry Reid and his gang of America-haters remain in control of the Senate during those 2 years it may be too late for another election cycle to save the US from what I believe is it's rapidly approaching demise as a great and powerful nation. If Obama gets his way in the time he has left the US will soon become just another insignificant, socialistic, used-to-be world power that so many members of today's college age generation seem to want us to be.

    wearing bulletproof vests and armed to the teeth,

    Can't be true, Denmark gas very strict gun control laws doncha know, just like those the anti-gun American media wants the US to enact.

    How much proof of the ineffectiveness of gun control laws would it take to make the US anti-gun fanatics realize that gun control doesn't lessen crime? Instead,it encourages and enables criminals to rob, rape, and kill without fear of armed resistance from their unarmed victims. IOWs,how much dumber can they get?

    even more third world riff raff to further tax law abiding citizens.

    Not so, refugees from communist Cuba are not the same as those people who are pouring across our southern border in droves nowadays.

    I don't have a problem with accepting Cubans who are escaping virtual slavery in Castro's hell on earth. I came to know many of them in south FL when I lived down there during the early years of Castro's "worker's paradise", and to a man they were as hard working, decent, and honest,(usually more so in fact) as any of the native-born Americans who l knew and worked with. They neither asked for nor wanted handouts from government. When they and their descendents became citizens with voting rights they were some of the most conservative Republican voters in the US.

    Those Cubans who I knew back then were escapees from communist slavery in a falsely named "worker's paradise", and if I had been in their shoes I would have done the same thing. Unlike the hordes of refugees pouring across our southern border today, their goal was economic, religious, and personal freedom, not a free ride on the backs of taxpaying Americans.

    This is a country that believes in itself and in it’s future.

    And so it should. Despite what the Catholic Church and many protestant denominations teach, God has not forsaken His chosen people. God promised Abraham that his descendants would own and occupy a much larger parcel of the middle east than it ever held in the Old Testament era, and He didn't put any conditions on that promise.

    Israel became a nation again in 1948 for the 1st time since 70 AD, and since that time it has become the dominant economic, industrial, and military power in that part of the world. Israel has approximately 200 nuclear missiles in it's arsenal of weapons along with submarines capable of firing those missiles from any ocean or sea on the globe. But Israel's most valuable asset by far is God's unbreakable promise to Abraham, any nation that attacks Israel will pay an awful price for it's foolishness.

    Tell-tale sign of demonic influence in high places.

    Exactly right. Satan & his demonic cohorts hate Isreal, and so does Obama because the Jews are God's chosen people and most liberals hate God Himself.

    (Genesis 12:1-3)"Now Jehovah said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto the land that I will show thee: and I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and be thou a blessing: and I will bless them that bless thee, and him that curseth thee will I curse: and in thee shall all the families of the earth be blessed.”

    God doesn't go back on His promises, Israel will be a great nation long after Obama and his God-hating ilk are dead and gone.

    The US was founded by Christian patriots as a Christian nation. There is a vast amount of historical evidence for that fact, but today's liberals and atheists (usually one and the same) will deny that incontrovertible fact to their very last breath.

    Ultimately, it is a battle of two opposite ideas: God is God vs. Man is god!!

    Exactly right. I thank God every day that my family and I are on the winning side in the long run. I also pray that my friends and neighbors will come to know Him through His Son Jesus Christ.

    I fully believe that life is gonna become very difficult for all American Christians in the near future. Very few true Christians had easy lives over the last 2000 years. We American Christians have been exceptions to the rule, up until now at least. But just one or two appointments to the Supreme Court could, and probably will, radically change that.

    I wasn't familiar with the term "coprophagous" so I looked it up in an on-line dictionary. For the benefit of anyone else who doesn't know the meaning of that word it means "feeding on excrement", as in the scientific description of several varieties of beetles who live on the dung of warm blooded animals. And we're supposed to accept these filth-ridden perverts as normal, respectable man-wife married couples and let them adopt and raise orphaned children in that kind of disgusting atmosphere?

    Apparently many people now give them the respect they crave and approve these recent court decisions which grant them special rights that we normal people can't aspire to. Special "rights" such as forcing employers to hire them even if they're unqualified for the job in question.

    Our country will go down the tubes for a myriad of other reasons...this to me just isn’t one.

    Although you're right in saying that we're "going down the tubes" for a myriad of reasons, I believe you're wrong in saying that this issue isn't one of them. In my opinion the judicial legitimization of homosexual unions will not only be a cause of our nations demise, it will be THE cause.

    According to Romans ch 1 vv 26-29 in my bible, which I am convinced is the inerrant Word of God (in the original text), God destroyed the antediluvian world with a universal flood primarily because of the rampant homosexual practices of the people of that era. There were other sins committed by the people of that time that we also commit today and they also played a part in that ancient world's destruction, but they aren't cited as the primary cause.

    I believe God raised up our nation's founding fathers and the nation they created as an example to the great nations of that era and our forefathers carried out that mission admirably at a great cost of blood and treasure. Now fast forward to today's America and we find it to be the world's number 1 producer and distributor of pornography. After the USSC's default approval of homosexual "marriage" I have no doubt that our nation will eventually incur the same divine wrath that brought about the well deserved destruction of the antediluvian world.
