    Also 1 Peter 2:13-16
    [13] Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; [14] Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him (Romans 13:4)for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. [15] For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men: [16] As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.

    Acts 8:32
    [32] The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:

    Matthew 10:38
    [38] And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.

    ^is none of that true then?

    Justice is supposed to protect the innocent. Blood unjustly spilt defiles the land that can only be rectified with blood. There is a debt being levied against the land, a debt of blood.

    Christians are made to compromise a little here and a little there for society, but the compromise is only one way and it will never be enough. Some day it will no longer be allowed to be a Christian, it won't matter if you accept homosexual marriage or not. So the question is will you be swept away by man, or swept away by God?

    That's correct. There are no such passages. Everyone wants to believe that there is but for the "privilege" of breaking civil law, innocent children must be sacrificed immediately. And I forgive people who make this choice. Lucky if their own family does not parish so that they can gain higher standing. I would choose not to have families chopped up, but that's only me. Nobody likes my choice.

    All are true. Obey the government, even as Jesus did and went to the cross.
    Thank you. Two more passages explaining that The Father works his will through secular government
    are on my list...and that last one is really the clincher!

    There is a difference between degenerate acts and those that are not.
    And it's the intentions, not the technology used.

    Jeremiah 17
    10 “I the Lord search the heart and test the mind, to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his deeds.”

    Proverbs 21
    2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, but the Lord weighs the heart.

    1 Samuel 16
    7 For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance, but the Lord looks on the heart.”

    We can deduce the teaching is not actually gender specific.

    I don't see how you come to the conclusion that innocent children must be sacrificed. It is their blood that is on the nation because of abortions.

    Certainly to break civil law is the right thing to do in some situations, but we must also accept the repercussions from it. There is a scriptural principle I can't remember, perhaps it will come to me later.

    By having families chopped up I assume you mean figuratively, I want to be certain after the first sentence. I believe in the power of God to overcome any demonic spirit.

    Most people seeking same sex relations prefer to have just one sex partner in their lifetime, as God intended. God is opposed to one night orgies as well as "orgies" spread over decades. I say "God" but people have the same "dislike" for sharing multiple intimacies....and biology has the same "dislike" of people sharing fluids every which way.

    Pedophiles are considered immature criminals in that they feel they cannot have sex with adults. So celibacy has created the problem for priests, but that is no excuse for abuse of others.

    In one passage of civil disobedience with David, entire families are fed to the lions and eaten before the bodies touch the floor.
    In the second of the two examples , Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, all non-believers in the nation are diced onto chunks
    and their homes leveled as an example.

    Only about half of zygotes implant on the uterus wall. So let's blame God for that half we don't get to see, eh? Why should women take all the credit?

    Because homosexuality is a product of knowingly rejecting God. (Rom. 1:19-32)

    Skywriting is not even saying homosexuality is a sin. He is saying God now condones and is for homosexuality. He is saying God is ok with homosexual marriages. He has manipulated the Scriptures in order to say that.

    Unless for fornication, that is right.

    Now what do you think about homosexuality and homosexual marriages?

    Surely you want to get out of the hole. And I'm not trying to be funny.

    Concerning (Titus 3:1-3), it is a good verse and true. But as has been shown, it does not mean we as Christians accept every law of man as from God. And when those laws that are contrary to God are passed, then we say no. These are not from God. (Acts 4:18-22)

    Concerning (Acts 8:32-33), it also is a good verse and true. But that was the will of God. That was God's will and we can find it spoken of in the Old Testament and even prior to the writing of Scripture.

    Is homosexuality the will of God for man? That is what Skywriting is saying.

    In quoting (1 Peter 2:13-16), are you saying, because the U.S. law supports and declares homosexuality as good and right, that God supports and declares homosexuality as good and right? Are you saying homosexuality is what God wants for man? That is what Skywriting is saying to you.

    The laws exist in our country that support homosexuality. I hate them. Do I submit to them in that I recognize they are law. Yes, I recognize they are law. But that doesn't mean I teach that they are right and from God just because the U.S. has made homosexuality legal and good. It is perversion. And I will teach instead what the Bible says about homosexuality. Not what U.S. law says.

    All the verses you give are true and from God. As I said in the other post to you, Jesus Christ's sacrifice was always the will of God. So for any to oppose Him from going to the cross was to oppose God's will. Does that mean homosexuality is the will of God for man. Of course not. It is and has always been perversion before God.

    Are you saying if a woman has a husband that’s a fornicator and she divorces him then it’s ok for her to Marry another?

    As to the other question, I don’t practice it myself because it’s a sin detestable in the sight of God as is all sin, but I’m guilty of it because I’m a sinner.

    As for accepting mans laws, New Testament scripture is very clear. Doesn’t say in my opinion, we are to practice them all.

    Do you pay taxes, Jesus observed that law?
