How is a God who is love and whose love fills the whole universe if you have eyes to see it, too small for you?. I would say you capacity to be filled with this love is limited by a lifetime of belittling that love in favor of your beliefs about God and the bible.


But hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has come in, overflowing our hearts by The Spirit of Holiness who has been given to us

Because it's only a small small part of the God of the Bible. The god that is only love is just a mere shadow of the one true God.

So, you turn his love on/off depending on where you choose to direct it?

Explain yourself.

Do you not realize that Jesus himself said that we are to abide in the love of God and outside of it we were rendered powerless?. Do you not know that Paul told us to be rooted and established in the love of God?.

Read this before you even think about explaining yourself.


So the Messiah may dwell by faith, and in your hearts BY LOVE , when your root and your foundation shall be confirmed, That YOU Bapfun can discover with all the holy, what is the height and depth and length and breadth, And YOU Bapfun may know the MAGNITUDE* of the knowledge of the love of The Messiah and you may be filled in all the fullness of God.


But God who is rich in his compassion, because of his great love with which he loved us,

It's the whole and you sadly are too blind to see it

Love is the fullfillment of the law..... How did Jesus in your fundy mind fulfill the law?. By all the other parts that you think are God..... Listen to yourself

I doubt that there is one single poster on this entire R&S forum whose reason for posting is that they "strongly support homosexuality". Sexual orientation is not something you support or don't support.

You are talking about the people who strongly support inclusion and acceptance of people. Some who support inclusion and acceptance are Christians and some of are not. That you DON'T support such things is disturbing to the rest of us no matter what our spiritual identity.

The Bible is only anyone's enemy to the extent that it is used as the mask from behind which some hide their own prejudices by trying to pawn them off as "the Word of God".

The downside for you is that the more you try to claim this, the more transparent the mask becomes. We can see you.
Well said, MQ.

I could have written this response for you as it is in the playbook and the parroting is internet wide.

A. Laugh it off and dismiss
B. Shout out ‘prejudice !’
C. Belittle



So, lets talk facts.

What thread is the largest? Certainly it is not Jesus, Holy Spirit, or God the Father. Think about it. A forum to discuss “Christianity” and it is not the the most written topic? And, Not to mention the thread starts off as an attack against believers who trust the Bible as the inspired Word of God!

What does God through His Word say about homosexuality? We all know the verses. Yet, it is simply ignored or claim misinterpretation.

There is a division and we all know it. But it is not exactly what you think it is.

That's what I used to think. Actually read scripture, it's not that way. Really it's not. That is one reason why I never visited a church, even dodging weddings. My parents never allowed us to attend church. Likely I am one of the rare folks who has no real grudge against any church or religion since I came late to the party


I've narrowed it down to Abraham and his son. makes no sense to me but I've come to the conclusion that since Abraham was devoted to GOD, he already knew he was just being obedient and there would be no harm to his son. Seriously, read it. The crazy stuff you read on the internet is just not true. or here likely, just because almost everyone wants to debate the person and not the topic. So they never learn about the actual topic, it's just constant babble intended to detract from scripture
