1 Kings 16:31 He not only considered it trivial to commit the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, but he also married Jezebel daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and began to serve Baal and worship him. 32 He set up an altar for Baal in the temple of Baal that he built in Samaria. 33 Ahab also made an Asherah pole and did more to arouse the anger of the Lord, the God of Israel, than did all the kings of Israel before him.
When I heard Trump has won the election, I thought it must be God, for it is a miracle. Why would anyone vote for Trump? But then again… How could they have voted against Clinton who should have been the first women President, where were all the liberal Christians? unless there are few left in the pews!
The outpouring of grief from my liberal christian friends after the election of Trump was as if their hopes and desires for a new World Order has been all but destroyed as America goes into her own closet. Didn’t they see that Obama had 8 years and the momentum was for a change to a Republican, any republican. For Clinton to have lost to the most unqualified, pussy grabbing old man, and bankrupt businessman perhaps reflect that she was not very well liked and her candidacy did to work out a fervor as it was going to be much of the same anyway as Obama. But surely it must have been God! Continue reading
Lev 1:3,4 if his offering is a burnt sacrifice of the herd, let him offer a male without blesmish; he shall offer it of his own free will at the door of the tabernacle of meeting before the Lord. then he shall put his hand on the head of the burnt offering, and it will be accepted on his behalf to make an atonement for him.
John 1.29 the next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold the lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”.
When we say at many gay churches that all are welcome irrespective of race, gender, religion, etc into the house of God, and that everyone is a child of God, it is more correct to say that all are invited into House of God but we need to bring an innocent and unblemished lamb to truly enter to meet the Lord.
Repeated mention of Creator God by some is ironic since they don’t believe in creation, and so how can “everyone” be a child of God. We are children of God in a general sense through Adam, but since Adam was expelled, we all yearned to return Home, to find God’s acceptance again. Continue reading
John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:2 He was in the beginning with God. John 1:3 In Him was life, and the life as the light of men
John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
John 1:12 But as many as as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name.
I have met many in my Christian walk in GLBT churches, many pastors even bishops who call themselves Christians simply because they belong to a certain church or christian tradition. The love commandments are preached but they don’t really believe in the name of Jesus, that name which is the Word, who was in the beginning with God and not created by God.
When we receive Jesus not as a mere teacher to be followed but God Himself dying for us, we receive the right to become a child of God because Jesus is the begotten Son of God. As Christ is so are we, in baptism onto His death, and resurrection into life. We can’t saved ourselves because we are all created beings. Continue reading
