We've been under attack by bots who have created tons of spam accounts for a long time. Over the past few weeks, the trickle has turned into a flood. Something will be done about it eventually, but for now, I'm just reviewing every registration by hand.

Completely Off-Topic / Re: Gay and Christian, need some help.
« on: April 16, 2008, 09:09:15 am »
Not that I hate on gays or anything, but the Bible says what it does, regardless of what you want to believe.

Quote from: "ReSpektDaFrenziedEVanesSa"
Fellow Christians, help me out here. I'm a Chrisitian, but I am also homosexual. I know that the Bible says being gay is an abomination, but it also says that eating shrimp and lobster and wearing clothes that are made of more than one material are abominable things too.

I'll actually quote the relevant dietary and clothing laws.

Of all the creatures living in the water of the seas and the streams, you may eat any that have fins and scales. But all creatures in the seas or streams that do not have fins and scales—whether among all the swarming things or among all the other living creatures in the water—you are to detest. And since you are to detest them, you must not eat their meat and you must detest their carcasses. Anything living in the water that does not have fins and scales is to be detestable to you.

Leviticus 11:9-12


Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.

Leviticus 19:19(d)

The first is a purity law. It isn't sinful to eat those things, but it will make you ritually unpure and unfit for admission to the temple. Oops, that doesn't exist anymore. Besides, the dream Peter had said this doesn't matter anymore. The second is just a random proclamation that doesn't explain itself. It doesn't carry any moral weight. It isn't sinful to do otherwise. It's just a piece of advice you had better follow because God said so.

Let's look at the laws on gay sex.

Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.

Leviticus 18:22

If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what id detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

Leviticus 20:13

Plus, there is more. This is clearly sinful according to the Bible, while the other things you mentioned are not.

Quote from: "ReSpektDaFrenziedEVanesSa"
Also, doesn't the Bible say that Jesus surrounded himself with the outcasts of society? Who better represents the outcasts of this day and age than the LGBT community?

He hung out with sinners and told them, "Repent and sin no more." If gay sex is really sinful, you're expected to stop it when you follow Christ. My take on it is a bit different, though. Gay sex is seen as sinful because it is disobeying God's first command to humans: Be fruitful and multiply. Perhaps with almost 7 billion people on this planet, this is no longer holds?

Quote from: "ReSpektDaFrenziedEVanesSa"
Pastors say "God's grace is limitless", and that gives me hope that He would accept me, but others say God condemns the gays, which scares me.

God condemns ALL sinners. All of us are sinners, no matter how righteous we try to be. "All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Romans 3:23.

Quote from: "ReSpektDaFrenziedEVanesSa"
People say God loves all His children, so why shouldn't He love me? Am I not a child of God? And is it not also said that God has a plan for all of us? Wouldn't that make this part of God's plans for me? If it is part of His plan, who am I to deny it? This is all really confusing, and I'm not sure what to think, where to turn, or what to do. It blows my mind to think that one wrong decision in this short life could make my entire eternal life hell. Eternity is a long time. I'm afraid. I'm deathly scared for my soul and I just need a little help. Thank you all.

God loves you like he loves everyone else, regardless of their sin. People sin and that isn't part of God's plan for them. Regardless of whether or not gay sex is a sin,* by putting faith in Jesus, your sins are forgiven. All of them. As long as you accept that gift, you're ok. Don't worry about it. Just pray about it. God's answer to you is the only one that really counts, anyway.

Sorry if this whole post came off as mean or something. The Bible disagrees with a lot of modern thought and is hardly "progressive."

* Just because the Bible says so doesn't mean that it is, it was, after all, written by imperfect men. It might have also been sinful in the past because the population of the world needed to grow, but this is no longer true and it might no longer be sinful.

Well, I'm glad that it isn't something you got in person. Selling that is kinda shady. Something you won in a contest? Eh... no memories there.

I see those commercials about 10 times a day and I always wonder if she gets paid per ad.  I hope she does!  Cha-ching!

I don't know if she is paid per play, but she said they paid her a lot of money to use ATM.

Completely Off-Topic / Justice was done!!!
« on: November 04, 2007, 03:39:05 pm »
The individual officers involved should have been found liable as well. Should be fired and thrown into prison. What... paying a crapload of money suddenly makes everything better? Justice was not served. Similar crap will happen again as long as law enforcement keeps their bullshit Mossad mentality.

yes you've been drinking the wrong beer.
WHY does anyone drink budlight? why! it makes no sense.

It's a step up from Natty Ice in terms of taste and it has fewer calories. Oh yeah, and it's cheap. Still not good reasons to drink it, but there you go.

Quote from: "zurielshimon"
Newcastle Brown, that's another one that I like, but that's really a "special occasion" beer for me because that's almost not even affordable around here.

Poor you. Newcastle is good stuff! :(

Naaah. Imports are generally pretty expensive, even if they have the same tracklisting as the domestic version.
