The Reality

god

1 Peter 4 –17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Some things still shock me, disgust me. Yes there are all sorts of unacceptable personal abuses, slanders, violent persecutions taking place today. In and even out of the Christian Church.

The followers of Jesus as still “indisputably” the most persecuted religious body on the planet. Sadly some of this persecutions is coming from within the Church today as well,  as 70 Percent or higher of Churchgoers in North America are not Christians. They tend to still do, act as the secular non Christians in reality.

The modern Christianity espouses the name of Christ but adheres to few of His teachings. Christianity centers on the matter of who will be God. It is a battle over “whether man will be god or whether God will be God.”

Sadly most of those who remain a part of today’s organized Christianity end up just “playing church”—claiming to be Christian while living like a non-believer. “Our churches are not ‘the pillar and ground of the truth’ (I Timothy 3:15, KJV); they are centers of social interaction, recreation, and feel-good indoctrination. Preachers are not reprovers, rebukers, and exhorters (II Timothy 4:2); they are ear-ticklers, entertainers, and expositors of irrelevance…. The result: ineffective, impotent, weak, unprepared, and sheepish Christians.” Much of today’s mainstream church are “the opiate of entertainment and feel-good-ism,” led by “hirelings in the pulpit [that] lust after ease and social acceptance”; and they willfully and blindly “bask in their ignorance. “If Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. If our politics become so corrupt that the very foundations of our government are ready to fall away, the pulpit is responsible for it.” 90 percent of pastors agree that the Bible speaks about all of today’s key political issues; and helping the poor and needy, but only 10 percent of them are willing to address these issues to their congregations. The pastors are more concerned about being ‘successful’ than they are about being truthful.

In the churches there’s the glaring problem of premarital sex, abortion. Divorce, getting rich even, sensuality  among  even the self-professed Christians. “For with their mouth they show much love”—again, they say all the right things, they sound like Christians—“but their heart goes after their covetousness” (Ezek. 33:30-31).  Many of them are currently “in an adulterous, sexual relationship,” with only 12 percent claiming to have never had sex before marriage. So much for biblical mandated abstinence!   https://postedat.wordpress.com/2018/01/16/divorce-abortions-polygamy-adultery-are-immoral-as-being-gay/

Too many Christians are tired of dealing with a guilty conscience, so they drop their full Christian commitment. Most of the lifestyle activities of born-again Christians were statistically equivalent to those of non-Christians.

Indeed, all who are willing to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.  2 Timothy 3:12 

Jesus said, “In truth, I tell you, there is no one who has left behind a house or brothers or sisters or a mother or a father or children or fields for My sake and for the sake of the gospel who will not receive a hundred-fold more in this present time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children – with persecutions – and in the age to come, eternal life.” Mark 10:29-30

FACE IT ALL CHRISTIANS HAVE TO FACE PERSECUTIONS, ALL, EVEN AT HOME, WORK, ON THE NET  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2018/09/19/persecutions/

 

 

Most people are like dumb sheep being told what to do. They are Bible ignorant, know almost nothing personally about  what Jesus and the Apostles have said still too. There really is no true light in them. They are religious but have a God shaped void still.. Sadly it seems to apply to 70 percent of the  professing Evangelical Christians and their poor pastors, And many of them have false, misleading internet sites just to show off, try to falsely be popular. They are mostly empty wells and it easy too  to spot them

https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/10/10/on-how-i-see-the-too-often-pretentious-christians/

There are much too many abuses elsewhere as well.

The Devil wants you to suffer the most.. God temporarily allows it and it is not for everyone, 1 Peter 1=6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations:

The faith is an ongoing battle,.. against wicked persons, demons, sicknesses, false accusers, pits, etc., and God can help us to overcome all of it, and he does for me.

Some of the problems we all seem to face are due to our own stupidity.. such as cancer caused by our eating processed meats, burnt food, alcohol consumption, smoking or diabetes caused by our by skipping meals, sugar excess, even our high cholesterol caused by eating fatty foods, and our lack of exercise, our being ignorant of what food is bad or good for us, plus over indulgence, Sadly many persons are too lazy. Too cheap, or fearful to go see a doctor when they need too as well.

Yes also the  hardships we encounter are caused by the much too many sinful other persons, the devil and his followers.

Revelation 12-9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Democrats, John 8 -44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

1 Corinthians 10-21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

James 3-15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

James 4-7 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

1 Peter 5-8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

1 John 3-8 He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

1 Timothy 4-1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;

2 Timothy 2=26 And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.

Mark 16 -17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils;

Acts 10-38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him

Revelation 20 -2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,

10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Christians still are too often also Persecuted by Liberals, Democrats, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, as 80 percent of religious freedom violations worldwide are targeting Christians. Any Western, liberal democracy where Christianity is the major religion hat is where Islamic terrorism represents a significant threat. .Australia and Britain are also facing problems with Islamic fundamentalism. In addition to the London bombings, a number of Muslim schools and teachers in Birmingham have been investigated for undermining British values, Judge the motivations of each Islamic attack as you may, but they are not simply because the only good Westerner, Christian is a dead one. Muslims their negative behavior is both rational and predictable.

Islamic mosque goers have persisted in breaking the law, and as shown by the recent Islamic attack in Philippines , which targeted a Catholic Church and led to the death and injury of more than 100 people, there is no room for complacency. Among the deadliest groups operating outside the main terrorist hot spots of Africa and the Middle East is The New People’s Army in The Philippines.

An Australian Army engineer Steve Driver is on a beach teaching Philippines marines how to blast through doors and walls so they can hunt down Islamic State-linked terrorists. Hundreds of militants aligned with the Islamic State group laid siege in the southern Islamic city of Malawi in May last year, sparking five months of intense fighting and military airstrikes that left more than 1,100 mostly militants dead and displaced hundreds of thousands of villagers. Sergeant Driver is part of an Australian Defense Force mission that has quietly trained more than 7000 Philippines troops to beat back a smoldering Islamist insurgency in the country The majority of Filipinos, including leading constitutionalists and jurists, remain outright opposed to Muslims.

President Rodrigo Duterte has ordered government forces to destroy the Abu Sayyaf after the bombing last Sunday of Our Lady of Mount Carmel Cathedral in the Sulu provincial capital of Jolo that killed 22 people and wounded more than 100.The Abu Sayyaf, which has about 300 to 400 armed fighters, has been blacklisted by the United States and the Philippines as a terrorist organization because of years of bombings, kidnappings and beheadings in the predominantly Roman Catholic nation. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, denounced the attack. A statement from the president’s office read, “We will pursue to the ends of the earth the ruthless perpetrators behind this dastardly crime until every killer is brought to justice and put behind bars. The law will give them no mercy.”

Of the 18,814 deaths caused by Mostly Muslims terrorists around the world last year, well over half were due to the actions of just four Islamic groups: Islamic State, the Taliban, Al-Shabaab and Boko Haram. In Pakistan, the most active groups include Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and the Khorasan Chapter of the Islamic State, which is also active across the border in Afghanistan.

In the modern welfare state Islamic immigrants are more dependent on the welfare state than the average citizen. Because of a lack of higher education and the lack of non-skilled jobs, immigrants absorb a higher part of unemployment and social security payments than the average citizen. As a group, they receive more money than they pay in taxes. They also show up much higher in crime statistics than their numbers would justify. Why would Muslims choose to stay in societies that showed such deep disrespect for them? Because they realize that an unemployed citizen in a welfare state run by infidels has a better material life than an employed citizen in the Muslim Countries

Meanwhile the devil is still also busy in all areas persecuting innocent persons. Sadly innocent persons ate being victimized, abused, even sexually in and outside of the Church,

Jeremiah 5-25 Your iniquities have turned away these things, and your sins have withholden good things from you.

Apostle Paul also next firstly was punished by God because he had persecuted Christians in the past, as you reap what you sow, as King David found out too, and for Apostle Paul this punishment was in the form of demonic buffering, a messenger from Satan specifically, 2 Corinthians 12 -7 And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

HOW YOU EVER NOTICE NOW HOW THE FUNDAMENTALIST, EVANGELICALS, BAPTISTS AND MANY OTHERS DO LOVE TO BASH CATHOLICS, OTHER DENOMINATIONS, PENTECOSTAL WHILE THEY THEMSELVES ARE HIDING MAJOR SINS IN THEIR OWN GROUPS SUCH AS ALCOHOLICS, ADULTERERS, THIEVES. JUST READ THE NEWS DAILY,, SINS ARE BEING EXPOSED IN CHURCHES NOW TOO

Most people think of adult rape as the crime of great proportion and significance, and are unaware that children are victimized at a much higher rate than adults. Drug consumption, Alcoholism, Rape and Adultery are sinful acts, not approved by God

Those who molest children look and act just like everyone else. There are people who have or will sexually abuse children in churches, schools and youth sports leagues. Abusers can be neighbors, friends and family members. People who sexually abuse children can be found in families, schools, churches, recreation centers, youth sports leagues, and any other place children gather. Abusers often form relationships with potential victims and their families prior to the abuse. This is called “grooming.” Not everyone who sexually abuses children is a pedophile.  And it seems 50 percent of once loudly professing Christians will next become Apostates, sell Jesus cause they  falsely  did not get what they wanted, even wealth,  power, fame, recognition, more sex  https://postedat.wordpress.com/2008/07/07/control-freaks/

Numbers 32-23 But if ye will not do so, behold, ye have sinned against the LORD: and be sure your sin will find you out.

Mat 18:6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh! 8 Wherefore if thy hand or thy foot offend thee, cut them off, and cast them from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life halt or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet to be cast into everlasting fire. 9 And if thine eye offend thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee: it is better for thee to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. 10 Take heed that ye despise not one of these little ones; for I say unto you,

Isaiah 59-2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.

Beware of False Prophets, False Teachers, False Christians, False persons,

2 Peter 2:1-2—“But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them—bringing swift destruction on themselves. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.” Pray “…That they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will” (2 Timothy 2:26).

I have seen often the shocking surprise on many people’s faces here on earth when they had refused to repent and they are now even facing an earthly judgement from God..

and they mow knew that they were lied to when they were told there is no personal accountability here on earth.. . they knew they were reaping the bad things they had sowed now.. for not all accountability is in heaven

Romans 3 – 12 They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that doeth good, no, not one’

2 Peter 2 -14 Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:

2 Peter 3 -16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

1 Corinthians 10 -21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.

One of the soberest warnings in the New Testament concerns the manner in which we approach and participate in the Lord’s Supper. Following the apostle’s repetition of Jesus’ command to regularly “do this in remembrance of Me” (1 Corinthians 11:23-26), he exhorts:

27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord. 28 But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup. 29 For he who eats and drinks, eats and drinks judgment to himself if he does not judge the body rightly. 30 For this reason many among you are weak and sick, and a number sleep. 31 But if we judged ourselves rightly, we would not be judged. 32 But when we are judged, we are disciplined by the Lord so that we will not be condemned along with the world.

This warning to take God’s judgment seriously was prompted also by the reality of the Corinthian’s self-exaltation, which was manifested by sinful living, pride, divisions, self-satisfaction, and contempt for others and sexual sins too. In fact, things were so bad that God’s judgment had already begun, and some were experiencing illness and even death. Therefore, in response to the warning of God’s judgment upon those who eat of the bread and drink the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, and it all applies today as well

Many of you are deceived because you just love to be deceived, you trust in man more than you trust in GOD, and you love the praises of men more than you love the praise of GOD! Many of you are deceived because you have chosen to become servants of mere men instead of becoming the real sons and daughters of GOD!

Abortion

Abortion

Abortion is the deliberate termination of a pregnancy. Abortion is wrong because it deprives the fetus of a ‘future like ours’. Early, suicides are bad things because it deprives people of all the experiences, activities, enjoyments, projects that would make up their future personal life.  The embryo and fetus have potential person hood.  The woman has full grown adult rights within the rights of others.

abortion (1)

Abortion actually leaves us at the top of a slippery slope . Abortion is as wrong as killing people, euthanasia (causing their premature death) otherwise the Jewish Holocaust should be deemed acceptable. It is clearly wrong to cause PERSONAL pain and suffering, so is killing a fetus, and it is sufficiently developed to feel pain by 18 weeks.

 

Reducing society’s respect for life is a bad thing – it may lead to euthanasia, genocide and increased murder rates and therefore abortion too is always wrong.

abortion (2)

A women has a right to decide her own future but not to killing, murdering, harming someone or stealing a life. All persons, children included, fetus do have the right to life

 

There thus is still a valid, strong opposition to the legalization and decriminalization of abortion even by Catholic moral philosophers and other pro-life advocates. Abortion rights are not valid in relation to the international human rights of all, others.

abortion (3)

Abortion is rather too often used to deny, cover up other sins such as lust, adultery, fornication, self willed, independence, sexual freedom  etc. With regard to the hypothetical exception cases, they do not apply to the general valid code, rule that Abortion is unacceptable murder.

abortion (4)

The Liberals claims falsely that the Bible promotes hate speech, while they promote hate against Christians, promote drugs, promote gays, lesbians, transgender people, openly encourage marriage divorce, try to ban any form of speech or written material that promotes traditional, honest, right Christian views on alcohol, abortion, marriage and sexuality https://postedat.wordpress.com/2018/06/25/they-cannot-face-the-truth-reality/

Not related to the New Testament

WE

 

Many people claim the title of Christian without actually believing anything related to Jesus, the New Testament. The world may tell us that sexual  purity doesn’t matter, but God does care about it. The Bible speaks a lot on this subject, such as in 1 Thessalonians 4:3-5. The Bible calls us to reject the world’s approach to love and marriage.

Biblically speaking, lust is always presented as something negative. Lust is about desiring something that is not yours to have. Lust is unhealthy desire. Lust is destructive because acting on it always means violating God’s laws and other peoples rights. In the end, lust leads to our destruction.

Proverbs tells us that, “The righteousness of the upright delivers them, but the treacherous are taken captive by their lust.” And Jesus said that to look at a woman lustfully is to commit adultery with her. Because lust is always negative, we need to learn to distinguish it from those desires that are appropriate and healthy. It is right for a husband and wife to desire one another sexually, but it is wrong to have this desire towards someone you are not married to. You are not entitled to the body of your boy/girlfriend until you have come into the covenant relationship of a sole marriage . Lust it is wrong also when these desires get distorted – when our desire for food becomes gluttony, or our desire for drink drunkenness, or our desire for sleep laziness.

The search for “the one” is often an idolatrous pursuit. If you are looking for someone else to complete you, to fill your life, to be the source of your contentedness, then you will be searching in vain your whole life. And you are placing an unreasonable expectation upon everyone with whom you develop a serious marriage. The “one-flesh” pronouncement by God in the garden of Eden gets lost in the mire of lust and violence. The Bible gives us a great definition and much advice regarding “Love”, There is no reference at all to a “soul mate”. The New Testament sees the woman-as-companion. God never instructs us to seek out a mate.

The most accurate definition of true love is found in John 15:13 ‘Husbands, love your wives’ (Ephesians 5:25) and ‘Husbands … be considerate as you live with your wives, and treat them with respect’ (1 Peter 3:7). Mark 10:11-12 tells us who is Biblically eligible for marriage. The book of Proverbs, a wealth of relationship knowledge, has us looking for responsible mates, and ones who know how to handle their money in 31:16. 31:30 informs us that godliness is superior to beauty or a handsome face. 17:19 tells us to shy away from those who quarrel, and 12:18 has us avoiding those with sharp tongues. Finally, 31:10-31 directs us toward the virtuous, for they their price is “far above rubies”.

Society has romanticized the notion of finding your soul mate. Too many people deduce that they didn’t find their “soul mate” after all.  So they seek excitement or solace in the arms of someone else, or they part ways and are once again involved in the quest to fulfill their fantasy of finding the one and only person on this entire planet, who will make them happy . Love is not an emotion; it’s a policy and a commitment that we choose to keep. The ancient world eben on Jesus’s day had a very distorted view of women, sex, and marriage. Prostitution was an essential part of Greek life. The Roman and Jewish ethics were no better. Judaism reverenced neither women nor marriage.

The lie that many are propagating, is that if you do the “right” things, or go to the “right” websites, and/pr believe the “right” verses, God will bring you your match.. no guarantees here.

Maybe you are young and impulsive. It may be those parts of oyur brains that are good at caution haven’t s been switched on yet. Or, in contrast, you may feel those parts keep setting off false alarms so often that you want to take the batteries out. Worse, you go looking for love in a world that is not just imperfect but actually broken, a place in part of selfishness, greed and betrayal. Worse above all still, some of the world’s evil comes out of our own hearts and spills into our relationships.

Always check if the person is a believer who fears God (Proverbs 31:30) and who is biblically eligible for marriage (Mark 10:11-12)? Do they live an upright life? (Proverbs 13:6, 20; 25:28) Are they peaceful, or quarrelsome? (Proverbs 17:19; 29:8) Is this person a hard worker? (Proverbs 13:4; 26:13-15) mpt lazt, not one with unrealistic, false expecations. When you have doubts, face them, don’t bury them.

Do not talk to your pastor and people you respect for their counsel. talk to God instead.God will lead us toward someone, and help us make a wise choice when we seek him in prayer. Seek God and not merely as a way to satisfy your own selfishness. “Seek first the Kingdom of God and his righteousness…” Matthew 6:33, a Christian should not consider any marital union that would not feed this primary relationship with God. You’ll bring great misery into your life if you ignore this God’s help, advice. There are so many hidden land mines in deciding to marry someone such as do you really know well the other persons, or are they lying to you to make a good impression which too often happens.

Every marriage, even the happiest, and some are very happy, sits somewhere on a scale of imperfection. Marriage is incredibly hard work. Wives are called to submit to, respect, and serve their husbands.

The real danger for God’s people in pursuing a spouse is that we will “settle” for the world’s vision of self, love, marriage and even romance, rather than a vision of those things steeped in scripture and rooted in the love of Christ. Biblical love and marriage ask more of us than the world’s selfish pursuit of non-existent perfection. It is very possible to marry the wrong person.

For one thing, believers are commanded to not marry outside of the faith…that is they should not marry an unbeliever because God has said that we are not to be unequally yoked (2 Cor 6). Many have never followed this godly advice and have ended up in a marriage that God never intended for them to be in and heartaches, divorce that resulted. Christian are commanded to stay in the marriage until death do they part for we know that God hates divorce (Mal 2:16; Mark 10:7-9).

Genesis 2:20-25 “But for Adam there was not found a helper fit for him. So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and while he slept took one of his ribs and closed up its place with flesh. And the rib that the Lord God had taken from the man he made into a woman and brought her to the man. Then the man said, ‘This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.’ Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. And the man and his wife were both naked and were not ashamed.”

15 Drink water from your own cistern, And fresh water from your own well. 16 Should your springs be dispersed abroad, Streams of water in the streets? 17 Let them be yours alone, And not for strangers with you. 18 Let your fountain be blessed, And rejoice in the wife of your youth. 19 As a loving hind and a graceful doe, Let her breasts satisfy you at all times; Be exhilarated always with her love (Proverbs 5:15-19).

So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe that God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it.”  ~ Colossians 3:14

Divorce, Abortions, Polygamy, Adultery are immoral as being Gay.

The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for the man to be alone.  I will make a helper suitable for him’…the Lord God made a woman…and brought her to the man…For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.  The man and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame” (Genesis 2:18,22,24-25,  ).

,

In the Old Testament book of Leviticus, the Bible says:  “Do not practice homosexuality; it is a detestable sin” (Leviticus 18:22 ).  Then one chapter later, it adds:  “If a man has sex with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is abhorrent” (Leviticus 20:13 ).
.
The New Testament passages clearly upholds the sexual ethics of the Old Testament. Jesus  did condemn all forms of sexual immorality: What comes out of you is what defiles you. For from within, out of your hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile you. (  Mark 7:20-23)  Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. ( 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)  They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator– who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. ( Romans 1:25-27)
.

Any sexual intercourse between persons of the same sex that is prohibited by Bible teachings.  I do not expect lustful, sinful, gay persons to respect what the Bible says nevertheless is is God word, the whole Bible. I expect them to twist the Bible to support their immorality knowing that people “love darkness rather than light” (John 3:19). Some persons even some professing Christians are trying to argue these days from the Bible that homosexuality is an acceptable form of human relationship. They teach that same-sex “marriage” is just as holy and commendable as heterosexual marriage. This concerns many more than secular arguments because such an approach attempts to hijack the Bible and change the truth (which, by any sane definition, never changes) . The bad news for those who engage in homosexuality does not go away simply by the spurious claim that somehow the Church has “misunderstood” the bible texts for centuries. People who use the Bible to argue that accepting homosexuality is how we are to ‘love our neighbor’ wrongly omit the first half of what Jesus said in that context. Jesus actually said, “The great and first commandment is ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind'” (Matthew 22:34-40). In other words, love for one’s neighbor is bounded by one’s primary allegiance to God. How can one claim to love God, yet despise what His Word says about homosexuality and disregard His design for marriage? At the core of the topic of human sexuality, as with all topics, is either a sound understanding of God or a flawed understanding of God, the Bible.  The Bible actually is quite clear and consistent, despite those who misinterpret it (2 Peter 3:16).

.

One basic guideline for good Bible interpretation is that whenever an Old Testament moral principle is re-stated in the New Testament, it makes the moral principle binding today. Gays falsely  jump to conclude that anyone who refuses to legitimize homosexuality and/or endorse same-sex marriage is automatically a “hater.” But that’s not the case. The Christian hope for homosexuals is not heterosexuality, but holiness. We know what awaits (Revelation 21:8) all those who will not turn from their sin and turn to Christ. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 and similar verses are sometimes cited as evidence that homosexuals will not be saved.

 .

LGBT  Make Up Less Than 2% of the North American Population and  their grand story doesn’t end with prideful sinners pulling their Creator down from His all-powerful throne (Psalm 2). To advocate for extending rights to someone based in particular and occasionally mutable desires, relationships, and behaviors — as important as they might be to the individual — is actually a violation of the principle of universal human rights.

 .
 True Christians graciously express what Christians have believed about marriage and sexuality for 2000 years. God created humans to engage in sex only within the arrangement of marriage between a male and a female. (Genesis 1:27, 28; Leviticus 18:22; Proverbs 5:18, 19) The Bible condemns sexual activity that is not between a husband and wife, whether it is homosexual or heterosexual conduct. (1 Corinthians 6:18) The Bible straight-up says that homosexual behavior is an abomination. The New Testament plainly lists homosexuality right alongside lying (1 Timothy 1:10), robbing, being greedy, swindling (1 Corinthians 6:9), gossiping and committing murder (Romans 1:25). Any society that condones destructive, sinful behavior (as Scripture defines sin) is a society that will weaken and decline. When you engage in sexual activity outside of male-female marriage, it not only brings God’s judgment upon you but also brings about emotional harm (and sometimes physical harm or disease), regardless of whether it’s consensual, and regardless of whether the harm or the offense toward God is ever realized or acknowledged.
 .
It is not sinful to be tempted. It’s sinful to yield. This truth about temptation applies to everyone, regardless of the sin.
 .
Homosexual “marriage” is unBiblical, unnatural and contrary to the conscience of every human being, All homosexual behavior comes out of “an emphasis on freedom with complete disregard for moral responsibility. The same sex marriage tends  to be a sign of the impending apocalypse.
 .
The Bible clearly affirms the dignity and worth of all people, regardless of skin color. But the Bible condemns homosexuality because it is rebellion against the created order of male-female marriage (Romans 1:18-32)
 .

It is clearly spelled out in Scripture. Titus and 1 Timothy tell us what are to be…

“…above reproach, the husband of one wife… He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.” Titus 1:5-9 

And

“…above reproach, the husband of one wife, temperate, prudent, respectable, hospitable, able to teach” (1 Timothy 3:1-5).

.

Jesus frees sinners who turn to Him in faith: His sinless life, His substitutionary death on the cross, and His rising from the dead emancipates anyone who no longer wants to be enslaved by sin. In Christ, there is no more fear of judgment or punishment for the sins we’ve committed (John 3:16, 3:36).

.

Jesus was unequivocal in saying that to understand marriage and the sexual union, we must go back to the beginning and see how God created humanity and to what end. (See Matthew 19 and Mark 10.) Sexual intimacy is not a right. Every Christian has limitations placed on his sexuality. For married Christians, it is exclusive to one’s spouse. For single, engaged, and divorced Christians, it is abstinence, no exceptions.

.

Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate. (Matthew 19:6) Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery. (Mark 10:11-12) If any brother has a wife who is not a believer and she is willing to live with him, he must not divorce her. And if a woman has a husband who is not a believer and he is willing to live with her, she must not divorce him. (1 Corinthians 7:12-13) The Bible tells husbands to love their wives (Ephesians 5:25) and wives to love their husbands (Titus 2:4). But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. (Matthew 5:44-45)

Living outside of what you can afford. A wise old woman  once advised: “The best thing you can do as a wife is to live within your husband’s means.”

,
It’s okay to have a bad day once in a while — that’s totally understandable; but don’t make it a way of life.

.
if you put your self, your children, mom, best friends, talents, or career in front of your husband, you send a clear message to him that he is unimportant.

.

Don’t waste your time giving him subtle hints that he won’t understand: Speak plainly to him. Be honest about your feelings, and don’t bottle things up until you burst. We think we can sweep our grudges and resentments under the rug–at least for a little while–but then we get busy, or we decide to just leave this stuff for another day, and then somewhere along the way, we forget that they’re still there waiting for us.  Waiting to trip up our or destroy your marriages. Being resentful. does it make you feel better?  Really? “Resentment is like drinking poison and then hoping it will kill your enemies.”

.

Decide you’re going to stay married, no matter what. Literally When a woman first seriously considers divorce she usually isn’t thinking about the theological implications of her desires – all she knows is that she is desperate wants to get more from her husband. She doesn’t arrive at this state of desperation by a process of calm deduction. Most husbands have few memories of “hurting” their wives and do not give it any thought. The truth is that a hardened woman only got that way because she was elf centred, selfish. Most women leave their husbands, because they entered marriage with false expectations Such a wife will be consumed by bitterness. She should realize the negative impact of her bad decisions will have, on her children or others . Her heart is too far hardened, and will not now respond to words of Truth. She falsely blames him for her bitterness.

.

Revelation 218 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
Why persons do tell lies 
.
 That such a Hell exists, there can be no doubt! The term “hell” occurs 54 times in the Bible,
.

“That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive” (Eph. 4:11–14).

.

Now, what woman would next want to get naked and sleep with an insensitive, and despotic, careles, bad man? She no longer trusts him. She now feels disconnected from him. However, her avoiding sex altogether is not a solution to her problems either.  It’ll just compound them.   Do not deprive each other of sexual relations, unless you both agree to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time so you can give yourselves more completely to prayer. Afterward, you should come together again so that Satan won’t be able to tempt you because of your lack of self-control.   1 Corinthians 7:5

.

A wife who hardens her heart against her husband is hardened not just against him, but also against God. Self-pity will pollute her prayers, and create an “odor” of self-centeredness. Scripture warns against a bitter or hardened hear, it t is a dangerous condition for her soul (Eph 4:18; Heb 3:13, 15; Deut 31:27; 1 Sam 15:23; Acts 7:51; 28:27).

Over 95 percent of the abortions performed today involve women who simply do not want to have a baby. Less than 5 percent of abortions are for the reasons of rape, incest, or the mother’s health at risk. The life of a human being in the womb is worth every effort to allow the child to be born. Abortion   is a reversal of justice. It is a destruction of the helpless rather than a rescue of them.  Scripture repeatedly condemns the killing of the innocent. Jesus, the Bible opposes abortions, it is murder  rape and Jesus, the Bible opposes  rape or incest.  Abortion is death. Christ came to conquer death, and therefore abortion. “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). Abortion is murder and is prohibited by the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:13).  Scripture that make it abundantly clear what God’s view of abortion is. Jeremiah 1:5 tells us that God knows us before He forms us in the womb. Psalm 139:13-16 speaks of God’s active role in our creation and formation in the womb. Exodus 21:22-25 prescribes the same penalty—death—for someone who causes the death of a baby in the womb as for someone who commits murder. This clearly indicates that God considers a baby in the womb to be as human as a full-grown adult. For the Christian, abortion is not a matter of a woman’s right to choose. It is a matter of the life or death of a human being made in God’s image (Genesis 1:26-279:6).
.
The Book of Revelation affirms that (unrepentant) murderers cannot enter the kingdom of heaven (Revelation 22:15).
.

The killing of children is especially condemned by God through the prophets. In the land God gave his people to occupy, foreign nations had the custom of sacrificing some of their children in fire. God told His people that they were not to share in this sin. They did, however, as Psalm 106 relates: “They mingled with the nations and learned their works…They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons, and they shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, desecrating the land with bloodshed” (Psalm 106:35, 37-38).

.

This sin of child-sacrifice, in fact, is mentioned as one of the major reasons that the Kingdom of Israel was destroyed by the Assyrians and the people taken into exile. “They mutilated their sons and daughters by fire…till the Lord, in his great anger against Israel, put them away out of his sight” (2 Kings 17:17-18).

.

God says through Isaiah, “Trample my courts no more! Bring no more worthless offerings…Your festivals I detest…When you spread out your hands, I close my eyes to you; though you pray the more, I will not listen. Your hands are full of blood! Wash yourselves clean…learn to do good. Make justice your aim: redress the wronged, hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow” (Isaiah 1:13-17).

.

St. John says, “This is the message you have heard from the beginning: we should love one another, unlike Cain who belonged to the evil one and slaughtered his brother” (1 John 3:11-12). Love is directly contrasted with slaughter. To take the life of another is to break the command of love. To fail to help those in need and danger is also to fail to love.  Christ teaches this clearly in the parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37), in the story of the rich man and Lazarus (Luke 16:19-31), and in many other places.

.

The Bible teaches that children are a blessing. God commanded our first parents to “Be fertile and multiply” (Genesis 1:28). Why? God Himself is fertile. Love always overflows into life. When the first mother brought forth the first child, she exclaimed, “I have brought forth a man with the help of the Lord” (Genesis 4:1). The help of the Lord is essential, for He has dominion over human life and is its origin. Parents cooperate with God in bringing forth life. Because this whole process is under God’s dominion, it is sinful to interrupt it. The prophet Amos condemns the Ammonites “because they ripped open expectant mothers in Gilead” (Amos 1:13). “Truly children are a gift from the Lord; the fruit of the womb is a reward” (Psalm 127:3).

.

Incest is defined as: “The crime of sexual intercourse or cohabitation between a man and woman who are related to each other within the degrees wherein marriage is prohibited by law” , Incest has been held to be repulsive, dangerous, and illegal among many civilizations.  The most comprehensive segment of the Old Testament dealing with this offense is in Leviticus 18:6-18.Sexual cohabitation was not permitted between a man and his mother, his sister, a granddaughter, an aunt, etc.The most serious punishment was execution (Leviticus 20:11-17), and in the New Testament era, disfellowship from the local church was enjoined for the offence (1 Corinthians 5:1-5).
.
When the Bible mentions the crime of rape, it is depicted as a gross violation of God’s design for the treatment of the human body (Genesis 34). (Deuteronomy 22:13–29) spoke directly against forcing a woman into a sexual encounter against her will, or what we know today as rape. Jesus and the apostles spoke against sexual immorality, even offering it as justifiable grounds for divorce (Matthew 5:32).
.
 Polygamy is wrong because it necessarily involves adultery. That is why it is not specifically banned anywhere in the New testament Bible – because it is covered by the laws that deal with adultery. If you have sex with someone other than your wife then it is adultery,   Adultery is stealing the sex that does not belong to you, it belongs to another man or women.   https://mccainvrsobama.wordpress.com/2008/05/23/polygamy/
