Good! I am glad that you are using scripture!  However, these things do not say that God hates them, but they serve as a warning to us how NOT to behave.  Sports is not on that list, neither is what a married couple may do together in the privacy of their own relationship.  In fact, the Word tells us that the marriage bed is undefiled. Contraception is a matter of *personal* conviction, and we are to show grace to one another over this, as there is no scriptural proof that God is against it. 

As for jokes; who *doesn't* hate a stupid one, but even that is not a sin and God does not HATE it, for heaven sake! There is not ONE scripture that prohibits joking, laughter and joy!  Please do not paint God as this stern, without humor, angry God.  He isn't! Just look at some of His creation if you doubt that He has a sense of humor! (Duck-billed platypus, for one)

Too much talking...WHERE do you find a scripture that gives us a heads up about how much is too much? What's the limit?

Education? Seriously?  Just stop it!  There is no sin in being educated, and there is NOT scriptural support for your condemning it
Sports promotes serious sins and help others to sin and end up taking everyone dragged down to hell. Sports promotes idolatry, famous sports athelet, or basketball player...then people buy video games for this sports too that's a double sin... Sports also promote pride. That's sin #3. On top of that it takes away time to spend with Jesus. That's sin #4. Anger can also rise in sports game because your favorite star losing in the game. Sin #5 and on and on.

Sodomy and kinky sex within marriage is sin because it is impurity / uncleanness. It is lust. Same thing with masturbation and contraception. These are very serious sins.

God doesn't like jokes, this I heard from his disciples. God said he doesn't like people joking on stupid things and laughing their butt off when in reality most people are falling to hell every day and most alive are on their way to hell. God is very emotionally heart and you want to joke and giggle and laugh belly off?  This is common sense guys.

Talking too much cause problems too because the more the person talks the mistakes people make, saying wrong things that make others offended, such as gossiping, slandering, worldly things that also promotes idolatry. One of Jesus' commandments is meekness. The opposite of meekness is yacking too much. ^_^)

Education can be a problem if you are doing that for your own wealth self serving when there are millions of kids dying of hunger. It depends on person's motive. If you are studying to get a job to feed your family that's fine, but not beyond that. We can't have nice cars either.

I can go on and on and on and on and on too, but I want to try to keep short cause I don't want to sin as the devil is tempting me too.

Absolutely rediculous. God isnt stingy and nor is He a kill joy. He has come that we may have LIFE, life in ALL its fullness.

You are spending too much time listening to weird teachers, instead of in the Bible getting Gods take on things.

Tell me, are you very young? Are you married? Living with parents?

its nothing to do with the list being hard to swallow, its to so with the fact that you have made most of it up.Its not in the Bible and its not right.

Exactly, people can say whatever they please but if it isn't Biblical then we should toss it to the side.

1 John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Therefore I classify myself as an Amillennial Futurist.
::headscratch::  Does that mean you believe in an eternal "millennium" but you don't believe it's started yet?  Having trouble wrapping my head around that one...

- Education - Striving for wealth to impress others and for self pleasure

- Hollywood Sci-Fi Action / Comedy / Romantic / Fantasy / War Movies and Dramas / Entertainment News
- TV Talk Shows / Festivals / Cooking / etc
- Secular Music (Hollywood Music and Videos)
- Video Games

- Comfort / Luxury living

- I will post more if I remember them...


I have an issue with all of these in particular.  I am in the process of getting a education.  I am even a English major with a creative writing emphasis, and while I do not agree with a lot of the things done and produced in Hollywood.  I do not believe that God wants us to sit in the dark and twiddle our thumbs.  What were the Israelite's doing during their many festivals and gatherings anyway.  I am guessing someone was telling a story at some point during a Passover that didn't have to do with Moses.  I let my son play video games.  I don't see anything wrong with it in some instances.  I don't let him play violent games, and I like having a cup of coffee in the morning.  It is comforting. 

So, maybe lets scratch the list and put it another way that will encourage righteous living rather than just make people cry and run right into the arms of the devil. 

Blessed are the pure in heart.  They will see God and He will be their friend so that he may approach His throne with confidence to find grace and help in time of need. 

"Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God," (Matthew 5:8).

"One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend" (Proverbs 22:11). 

"Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need" (Hebrews 4:16).
I understand that my list is too difficult for most to swallow... I know, it's too strict, too harsh. But I am saying this because we don't have much time left to get right with Jesus... If I give you these words now you wouldn't get discouraged or come to shock when you seek Jesus and he tells you things. all I am doing is trying to help get people to prepare... Very short time to accomplish Jesus' will... The more you serve him the better off. Otherwise we will get left behind and will face many terrible things like communist militants killing, raping, torturing civilians.... they will do anything to get us to take the mark.

I was raised pre-mill pre-trib.  Still lean premill, but post-trib.
Admitting you have a problem is the first step to overcoming it.

Cheez, you my friend are steeped in religion rather than submitting to the things of the Lord. Please keep your discussions of righteousness to the confines of the Bible and we will all appreciate one another much more.

Tyler since it seems you want to resort to insults and are making zero sense I will ignore your future posts in this thread.  It is obvious from what I have said that one must believe Christ is the only way and that the love He spoke of is love in action and not just about doctrine. 
2 “To the angel[a] of the church in Ephesus write:


These are the words of him who holds the seven stars in his right hand and walks among the seven golden lampstands. 2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked people, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary.

4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken the love you had at first. 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place.
