Thank you, I appreciate that.
My base belief goes back to the little county church that I first attended as a young boy. God and Jesus were all about love and forgiveness. I hold that as the truth today.
I didn't ignore anything. You glossed over the facts and make it seem like it was no big deal. Slaves were owned by many famous Christians. They supported it by distorting the Bible to fit their needs.
Evangelicals still do that to this day with the hatred of gays.
Same argument as with...
I've been called a lot of things being in politics for all these years, but never ignorant. Why? Even my detractors will admit that I don't speak out on a subject until I've educated myself on both sides of an issue or argument.
Funny thing is, you can't see the forest through the trees...
It's all in how the person interprets the word. Evangelical Christians have been distorting the word of God for decades in order to match the hatred they have for a certain group of people.
It's ironic through history that those 'christians' have always found a group of people to hate. And...
Many evangelical ministers preached that black people were more like cattle to the white man due to slavery.
This was another case of so called Christians distorting the word of God to match their hatred.
Wow, now I'm ignorant? How very Christian of you brother.
Keep in mind, I'm not pushing any agenda. Everyone, including Christians that spew hate, will have to answer to God at some point.
I'd rather sit down and have a conversation with someone I disagree with in order to learn why they...
Didn't say they didn't know what it was. Saying the words used in today's Bible are incorrect for the times.
Sexual immorality has been around since the beginning of time.
The question is, who amongst us has earned the right to say what is or isn't immoral.
As late as the the 1960's radical...
We could debate this chapter forever and not agree. If you look up history, the term homosexual wasn't around when Paul wrote this. How did it end up in our Bibles today?
Man put it there, not Paul. It'd be hard to use a word that wasn't even around at the time.
There's not enough space to list mine.... Lol... Love that you mention Levon Helm and the Band!
My partial list would be....
Sammy Hagar and every band he's been in!
Paul Rodgers and every band he's been in.
Do my homework? EDITED BY MOD. As a state elected official I deal with a number of groups, including various groups of gay and trans folks. Not one time have I been in fear that they are coming for my grandkids. And trust me, I'd shout it from the rooftops if this were true.
As a Christian...
