Not in my church, but I'm glad some are addressing it.

Lot of churches address it. If you listen to Christian radio, it is brought up a lot. Pornography has become an addiction to many people and they are seeking help and prayers to defeat it.

But if I am to believe that God sent a rainbow to show his approval and blessing of same sex marriages then we might as well throw away the Bible. We can't have faith in the word of God when He changes course and decides that He now approves of same sex relations.



I don't serve a vengeful demanding God. I serve a patient God who tolerates sin as long as possible until He finally must intervene and destroy it before we destroy all of his creation. That is certainly possible in the modern era with every major nation getting their hands on nuclear warheads.

We will always disagree on this. Final question though, we are willing to accept that we might be wrong, are you?

We are in our 60s and while we don't look forward to learning the Final Jeopardy question/answer, neither are we afraid of it. Just guessing that we are older than you.

We will help direct you to the front desk to check in when you get there.

God has now for a long time been about the work of bringing down the USA. AS the citizens have continued to forsake God in even greater numbers over the years, our debt has grown, social problems and crime have grown drastically, our military power is now in decline, we are more and more at war within our borders. Our country will continue to decline in power and prosperity, our major cities will continue to deteriorate. Jobs will move overseas, unemployment grow, and increases in those dependent on govt. checks will continue to grow. The days of the USA empire are numbered.

I should add that the legalization of abortion,(murder of unborn children.) was far worse.

What an absurd thing to say!

You're talking about the God who obliterated 99.9% of the planet just by making it rain! This is the dude who can unleash plagues with a thought!

This is the badass who can send bears to tear apart children who make fun of bald guys!

And you think he needs to work for a long time to bring down the US of A?

Oh ye of little faith! If this guy wanted the US of A kaput, he'd just have to snap his godly fingers.

Sheesh!

Yes again.

He will destroy it WHEN the appointed time comes. Until then all Nations wallow in the mire and muck of Satan's world.


KJV Daniel 2:44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which (1 )shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

Meaningless noise with no support to the real issue.

Clearly your God is the cause, and not things like globalization, automation, and a growing gap between the rich and poor.

LOL!

And your "support" is a mouldy old book a bunch of primitive dead guys wrote who thought they were mediums channeling god.

Good one.
