The majority of the Christians do believe it's a sin.

The world is getting more and more liberal, and AWAY from God and His word.

If anyone says we're getting 'closer' to God's word is clearly wrong as society becomes watered down or 'more liberal' as time passes.

Even the elect Christians will be drawn away by the wine of Babylon.

Most churches are now reading 'self help' books instead of the bible.

Visit any Pastor's office and you will see

Ask the Pastor what his reading materials are.

I know from seeing, asking, and hearing the Pastors speak about books.

Go to any Christian book store and see the best sellers. Books that claim to be of the spirit but carry false doctrine. Rick Warren, "A purpose driven life"
Joe Olstein, "Becoming a better you", "Your best life now"

You guys scare me.

Seriously.

Calling Rick Warren's PDL a false gospel...whatever.

I bet you base that on someone else's opinion.....someone say like MacAurthur


YouTube - MacArthur on the Purpose Driven Life

Who during his attempts to take the speck out of Rick Warren's eye, shows us all the plank in his own.

HINT: For just ONE example, read Romans 8:1, watch the video, read Romans 8:1 again. Wash, rinse, repeat as necessary.

What harm can be against homosexuals?

How often do you hear homosexuals being martyred?

"Christians" who don't follow the word of God are not really Christians at all. It would be better for them to completely reject God and the Gospel than to continue to promote sin and wickedness under the name of Christianity, deceiving millions in the process and leading them to an eternal hell.

Matthew 7:22-23: "Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity."
