I'm not sure if this directly answers your question, but I went to the wikipedia "local church controversies" page to see what are listed as the theological issues and if there is any ranking. The...

Re: Hanegraaff Sings Praises To The LC/Recovery With A Lengthy Explanation

Let me just say that I was in the LC for decades and didn't have a remote handle on what the controversies surrounding "us" were. It was only after I started reading the poisonous materials and...

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

I'm going to have to let the HuffPo article go, especially as I've already given some comments on it, but I'm aware of the other two at least. I also owe you a response on the gospel, as well as the...

awareness, you are like a magician who whips out the most unexpected verses and conclusions. I chuckled the whole time reading through Judges 1. Most of the Bible commentaries on verse 19...

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Do you mean it would make pro-lifers confused because it gives God a pass for taking the life of the firstborns? (btw I thought it was an interesting point that we usually think of firstborns as...

Don't have time to write a response myself, but here's one example of what was going on with Egypt and the firstborns: https://bible.org/seriespage/q-was-god-cruel-egyptians-exodus

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Thanks for the explicit detail :furtive:

You believe in an unrighteous God, awareness.

Your worldview, which is apparently theological determinism, says that God causes each person to act...

This made my morning. I'm SO glad you wrote this post. This understanding frustrates and stumbles a lot of people, and I'm thrilled there's the opportunity to respond to it. I only have time to...

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

This is extreme grasping at non-existent straws.

But I'll entertain the scenario as if there are straws. Adam lived to 930 years old. That's plenty of time for if when Adam was, say, 500 years...

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Agreed. Jesus says "here let me help you out of your doomed condition" and people instead turn around and say "how dare You!" and curse Him and hate Him. We have no complaint for how simple God has...

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Agreed, there are some shortcomings to the analogy. I was going to go in a direction of having the "pit life" or something but didn't have the energy. The cesspool angle works great for me! :lol:

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

I totally understand where you are coming from, and I thought this, quite angrily, for years.

Then I came across an example online a few years ago that helped me. I tried to find it again...

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

Parameter 3 comes from:

1. God
2. the Bible
3. all of human history
4. outward design
5. inward biology

Of course gay people can marry. They can marry anyone within those boundaries just...

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

SL, you can write shorts posts that require dissertations to answer! These are all good questions, but there are no short answers to these. But I'll have to try.

Re: Things Learned from LGBTQ+ Discussions

By man I mean mankind, both Adam and Eve. Neither could claim unfairness (even though they both tried to point the finger at someone else).

Between verse 7 and 13 (when Adam and then Eve were...

Weeeellll......I'll mention one thing.
