Wake Up, America!

We are sinning, big time!

Homosexulality? No shame! We declare our sins as Sodom!

Ancient pagan celebrations -- Christmas, New Year's, Easter? No shame! We declare our sins as Sodom!

Sabbath-breaking? No shame! We declare our sins as Sodom!

Etc.

Etc.

We need to wake up and turn to God and keep His ways and put away our evil ways!

Isaiah 3:
9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

Again, America, Wake Up!

Jesus said in Matthew 7 :1-5....``Judge not , that you be not judged...For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged , and with what measure is in your brother`s eye, but considered not the beam that is in your own eye?...Or how will you say to your brother. Let me pull out the mote out of your eye, Look a beam is in your own eye?..... First take out the beam out of your own eye and then will you see clearly to cast out the mote out of your brother`s eye......``.... See as believers we are not called to judge any one but ourselves ,and even to ourselves we can ask Holy Spirit to bring discernment of our sin .... As there is NO LOVE in Judging others , and with Jesus Holy Spirit abiding in your lives ...Where Lord Jesus is called to Judge people only because He has the power to help people .... So Christians are called to go to Jesus to help people and bring His redemption to help people , as Jesus waits for Christians to turn to Him to He wants to do that, as God only gives good gifts...... See the Pharisee would go and condemn people and judge them and there was NO LOVE , where through Holy Spirit thing have different

"No love" would be NOT warning your neighbor that his house is on fire...

Our nation is spiritually and morally bankrupt and we all need to repent of our sins against God or suffer the dire consequences...Wake UP!!!

Leviticus 19: (KJV)
17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thine heart: thou shalt in any wise rebuke thy neighbour, and not suffer sin upon him.

Leviticus 19: (JPS)
17 Thou shalt not hate thy brother in thy heart; thou shalt surely rebuke thy neighbour, and not bear sin because of him.

Leviticus 19: (ERV)
17 "Don't secretly hate any of your neighbors. But tell them openly what they have done wrong so that you will not be just as guilty of sin as they are.

Leviticus 19: (YLT)
17 `Thou dost not hate thy brother in thy heart; thou dost certainly reprove thy fellow, and not suffer sin on him.

Your Biblical hermeneutic is astounding. Quote some random Bible verses to prove your point, and ignore the tradition, reasoning, and experiences of Christians who do believe in:

1) Celebrating Christmas
2) Going to church on the day of Christ's resurrection.
3) Treating gay men and women and their relationships with dignity, being created in the divine image.

It is YOU who do not understand.

Thank you for illustrating the point I was making:

Isaiah 3:
9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.
