Theology Forum / Re: Spotlight On The Colorado Baker

Very good reply, MeMyself!

Buff

   P.S. But I think I would have a problem forgiving the two homosexuals on the spot while knowing in advance they probably had zero intentions of "sinning no more."

Thank you.  ::smile::

and to your PS. ::smile:: That's what so special about Jesus...He did know..and He does know...any and all of us who've been told "go and sin no more", probably do. We probably slip and stumble and our walks are probably more messy than we'd like to admit, but Jesus just keeps forgiving and cleansing us and letting us start over and over and over...and once one sin that so easily entangles us is undone, another is exposed. Or... ::pondering:: maybe that's just me.  ::hiding::  ::noworries::

MeMyself:

   Loving the sinner and condoning his wicked behavior are two different matters. Simply, we we can love the sinner and try to help him "see the light" without embracing his lifestyle.

   I think Jesus did just that when He told the woman caught in adultery, "Neither do I condemn you, but go and sin no more."

   If I had been the Baker, I might have told the two homosexuals, "I cannot give you my blessings or support your lifestyle by baking a Wedding Cake for you." Then I might have added, as Jesus did, "Go and sin no more."

Thank you for your thoughts,

Buff

I appreciate that...and when the time came, as per 1 Peter 3:15, I would say the same.  I'm not sure a stranger to us is going to respond well to "go and sin no more" before a trusted relationship can be established. Jesus was well known, and she knew He accepted and forgave her first, and then told her to go and sin no more.

But notice what I added later: According to the Dictionary, "Definition of feminism. 1: the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes" IN FUNCTION as well as IN BEING. But this is precisely the definition of EGALITARIANISM. Therefore ALL egalitarianism, including YOUR brand of Egalitarianism, IS feminism: for it is precisely the application of FEMINISM to the very points (MOST NOTORIOUSLY IN THE HOME AND IN THE CHURCH!!!!) on which you happen to be egalitarian instead of complementarian or patriarchalist! And yet you say that this is a slander?

When I called you a Leftist, I meant to emphasize the fact that you agree with the Leftists on PRECISELY the points on which you happen to be egalitarian instead of complementarian or patriarchalist. And yet you say that this is a slander?

And for your information, I am STILL waiting for the replies of both 4WD and Glenn63.

There is NO reason to bring my name up in this thread. I hadn't participated in it at all. You try to bully, gossip and slandered me for NO reason.

And, yes, I call what you did slander. You don't know me, you just know I disagree with you about music styles in the church, so your panties got all twisted up and you are now spreading lies about me. But, shouldn't surprise me...the weakest among us stoop to the mentality of "can't control 'em, so I'll control what others think about them."

I agree that humans, regardless of gender, have equal value. I do not apologize for that. My husband leads my home and family beautifully. We are partners and we both see what the other brings to the table as gifts and blessings to be utilized and to glorify God.  HE has *zero* problem with how I submit to him, so butt out.

There are many passages which show HOW Jesus DRAWS all people to Him.  You probably accuse Him of being ignorant if He doe snow show how He will and DID command that people be CALLED to Him.

Rom. 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ:
         for IT is the power of God unto salvation
         to every one that believeth;
         to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
Rom. 15:19 Through mighty signs and wonders,
         by the power of the Spirit of God;
         so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum,
         I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.

WHY WAS IT A FACT THAT THOSE SENT OUT TO CALL OR INVITE PEOPLE KNEW THAT THEY WOULD SUFFER AND DIE IF JESUS ALWAYS KNEW THAT HE COULD GIVE PEOPLE FAITH WITHOUT EVEN HAVING TO DIE?

Psa. 28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked,
        and with the workers of iniquity,
        which SPEAK peace to their neighbours,
        but MISCHIEF is in their hearts.

Acts 5:36 For before these days rose up Theudas,
        boasting himself to be somebody;
        to whom a number of men, about four hundred,
        JOINED themselves: who was slain; and 'all,
        as many as OBEYED him, were scattered, and brought to nought.
Acts 5:37 After this man rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing,
        and DREW away much people after him: he also perished; a
        And all, even as many as OBEYED him, were dispersed.
Acts 5:38 And now I say unto you, Refrain from these men,
        and let them alone: for if this counsel or this work be of men,
        it will come to nought:

Acts 20:30 Also of your own selves shall men arise,
        SPEAKING perverse things,
        To DRAW away disciples after them.

James 1:13  Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God:
        for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:
James 1:14 But every man is tempted,
        when he is DRAWN away of his OWN lust, and enticed.
James 1:15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin:
        and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.
James 1:16 Do not err, my beloved brethren.

IF YOU DON'T "SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES" TO UNDERSTAND THE MEANING OF WORDS, BUT DEFINE IN GREAT DETAIN WHAT SCRIPTURE REALLY MEANT TO SAY HAVE YOU REALLY BEEN DRAWN IN ORDER TO COME TO JESUS?

Heb. 11:4 By faith Abel OFFERED unto God a more excellent sacrifice than Cain,
        by which he obtained witness that he was righteous,
        God testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaketh.
Heb. 11:5 By faith Enoch was TRANSLATED that he should not see death;
        and was not found, because God had translated him:
        for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God.
Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him:
       For he that COMETH TO GOD must believe that he is,
       AND that he is a rewarder of them that DILIGENTLY SEEK HIM.

THOS WHO HAVE FELD THE "MAGNETIC" TUG OF THE CALL ARE MARKED FOR EASY IDENTIFICATON OR SEALED.

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly RECEIVED his WORD were baptized:
       and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

The DRAWING is also defined as the power of LIGHT.

For your information, you lie...again.

You posted in this thread to a poster named Glen63 in response to a post he made in 2013 and that is the post I quoted.
You *then* replied to 4WD and reposted the same drivel an hour later.

I hadn't even posted on this thread before you brought my name up to slander me.  Its hateful, its childish and out of line. Grow up.

I used to think I'd say no, but there is a baker down the road who would be a better fit for you.

But...

I've been challenged lately to think of things less in terms of "I'm against that!" to "What will make an impact to change a life for Christ?"

I just wonder what kind of a difference we could make if we loved the sinner like Christ did?
