Equality and marriage for all!

No doubt I’m sure you all noticed the endless sea of red equal sign pictures that were floating over just about every social network in existence. I watched in both shock and horror as people I knew joined in with changing their profile picture and replacing it with the aforementioned picture — Christian people… people I thought knew better.

I was wrong.

So decided to change my profile picture as well. It seemed like the thing to do…

Question of the day: government and marriage.

Over the years we’ve seen a decline in the moral and ethical views of the American people – especially when it comes to marriage.

There are several states which have made marriage for same-sex couple legal. A couple of months ago I read an article about how the “gay crowd” is now pushing for the legalization of incestuous relationships — including relationships between a grandmother and her grandson (and their surrogate mother), twin brothers, fathers and daughters, etc.

This is a disturbing age we live in, and it’s getting worse and worse with every day that passes. Even so come quickly, Lord Jesus.

Use Scripture to back your opinions. Please. and thank you.

Some Christians are gay.

Umm. No.

Last week I was surfing around facebook and a picture appeared on my news feed notifying me that James Lyman had commented on it {click HERE to go to his facebook page}. Remember him…? No? Let me jog your memory. I wrote “What Christianity is NOT.” in response to a bunch of stuff James was saying/doing.

What actually surprised me is that James finally said something that I could agree with and “like.” Trust me, I was just as shocked as most of you probably are.

Anywho…

The picture was originally posted on The Youth Pride Project facebook page, then shared by the Blogging for Change facebook page which is where the convo took place. Below is a few of the major comments that took place on said thread.

{please note: just because I posted the links to those facebook pages does not mean that I support those pages. I simply want to site my sources so people can go back and review it for themselves if they choose to do so.}

to the point: rap & homosexuality.

i don’t have a lot to say as a for-runner to the main part of this post.

however, i do want to say thank you to Baptist Thinker for posting what i have stolen from his blog (teehee!) and making me aware of it.

also, i want to make you aware of an earlier post i had written about homosexuality a few months back – which you can read here.

lastly, i want to give a shout-out to my friend Dave who – though i’ve never met him personally or email him on a regular basis – has been a source of encouragement and an example of a wonderful, gracious, forgiving (and forgiven) Christian in my life.

Snow day snippets {6.25.11}

I am welcoming today with open arms! I have literally not stopped since last week – so I may still be sleeping while you’re reading this. ha. Actually, that’s probably not true…

Regardless of what I’m in the middle of at this very moment, I found some interesting articles and links for you all to check out!

Oh, and as a side note – if you ever come across an interesting site or article that you think should be shared, please feel free to e-mail the link to me and you may find it featured in a future SDS post.

The Answer: King James I of England.

The Answer:  No.

The Explanation:
King James I of England, who authorized the translation of the now famous King James Bible, was considered by many to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, monarchs that England has ever seen. Through his wisdom and determination he united the warring tribes of Scotland into a unified nation, and then joined England and Scotland to form the foundation for what is now known as the British Empire.

Question of the day: King James I of England.

Three weeks ago I started a series of questions put forth by Dr. Sam Gipp in His book “The Answer Book.”* I know that everyone who reads this blog doesn’t agree with or even necessarily “like” Sam Gipp – and that’s okay. Really. As I said before, the point of these questions is not to start a Baptist War, but rather encourage everyone to engage in a discussion and learn from and among fellow believers.

I don’t want you to rely on “he said, she said” or even unconfirmed history. Read your Bible, study accurate accounts of History, pray about it, and take what you don’t understand by faith.

Guess who’s coming to dinner…?

When the word homosexuality is mentioned in a Christian context, most of the responses one receives will be negative. Gays are usually talked about as “those sinners out there.” But not all who are gay are outside of the purview of the Church. (And by gay, I’m talking about all those who experience homosexual temptation, whether or not they routinely give in to those temptations.) This may not be self-evident to all who read this, so it should probably be said: gay people are among us. They serve on our committees, sing in our choirs, give us financial advice, teach our Sunday School classes, and play instruments in our services to lead us in worship.

Question of the day: I’m gay.

This question is unlike any question I’ve ever posted here on the blog.

It’s a “what it…” scenerio. Meaning, it could happen… and if it did, how would you react?  What would you say?  How would you handle it?

Let me set the scene…

You scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours.

I love reading a lot of different blogs – I’m subscribed to many, many of them, and I peruse through countless random others during any given day. I Google search for new ones, and stalk blogs looking for other blogs, which then leads me to crazy amounts of other blogs! I just love seeing the different perspectives that people have on issues and how the Church is doing these days.

So, this post is going to be a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” — well, sort of. It’ll be the virtual equivalent to that. Actually, it’ll be the reverse equivalent to it – because technically, I’m going to scratch your back fir—- ohhh, this is so weird….
