And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them
that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables
of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves,
And said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called the
house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves. Matthew 21:12-13
Tolerating sin is not mentioned in the Bible. When a Christian
sees something is wrong, it is his duty to speak out. We are
supposed to be the salt to change the flavor of this world
that naturally will not do right in Gods eyes. A Christian is
also to be the light in this sin-darkened world.
A Christian would make more changes to this world if he
stopped putting up with sin, and made a stand against it!
Putting up with sin and turning the other cheek is quite often a
cowardly act, because one is afraid to make a stand! This world
has gotten so wicked because Christians have not stood up against
what is wrong. It is our responsibility to warn others of the dangers
of sin. If we do not stand against sin, who will?
When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou givest him not
warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life;
the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.
Finally it must be emphasized that religion and those that adhere to religious doctrine may continue to advocate with up most sincere conviction that by divine precepts same sex marriage not be condoned.
The 1st amendment ensures that religious organizations (Ministries) and persons, organizations ministries and persons (people of faith) are given proper protection as they see to teach the principles that are so fulfilling and so essential to their lives and faith. Into their own deep aspirations to continue the family structure they have longed revered.
Same sex does not trump religious beliefs!
Gracious and Eternal God,
I know I am a sinner, and I ask for your forgiveness.
I believe that you died for me on the cross for my sins and rose from the dead.
I trust and follow you as my Lord and Savior.
Help and lead my life to do your will.
I accept you as my Lord and Savior
In Jesus name, amen.
Kevin Bolden was a man sure of many things but when his corporate job found out that he was diagnosed with epilepsy, the fate of his career and family became questionable. Once The Village, Kevin's neighborhood, got a whiff of the inequality and unsatisfactory response of his job, they felt an obligation to rally together in efforts to help save his lifestyle and others that could be affected by the unfairness. For him, dealing with epilepsy was one thing, but getting people to understand the effects that it has on the person and their environment was a battle in itself. It would take a Village to win his life back.
Kevin Bolden has epilepsy, but epilepsy does not have him; especially with the help of The Village!
Deacons, teaching, preaching and giving all the glory to God in the name of Jesus
