Update on The Darkness Of The Carnal Flesh

Australia has now voted “Yes” for Same Sex Marriage, this did not surprise me as Jesus said that in the End Times it would be as it was in Noah’s Time, sadly we see the Signs all around us today, Evil is increasing .

Why do I not condone Homosexuality even if some call me a bigot or worse, for a complete explanation please see my link below, it may surprise you and there is another link on the Post that gives the full picture but to condense here…This is my Heart Focus…..

God Said it!

I Believe it!

That Settles it!

But even if I didn’t want to Believe it!

It would Still be Settled! 

Why does God  tell us Homosexuality is evil because He knows the Suffering, Heartache and Death that it causes and He seeks to Protect us.

Where does Aids come from? it has now been proven Medically to be caused from  Bacteria in the Anus and is passed on through intercourse, some call it a Virus but God makes it very clear in the Scripture below where Aids came from ….

Romans 1:26-27 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections for even their Women did change the natural use into that which is against Nature and likewise also the Men leaving the natural use of the Woman burned in their lust one toward another; Men with Men working that which is unseemly and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.K.J.V

Previous Post…..

In Australia we are being asked to Vote for or against Same Sex Marriage, so what does God say we should do?

He tells us not to say what is bad is good or what is good is bad or to use any of His Creation to promote Evil.

Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good and good evil that put darkness for Light and Light for darkness that put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! K.J.V

Romans 1:26-27 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections for even their Women did change the natural use into that which is against Nature and likewise also the Men leaving the natural use of the Woman burned in their lust one toward another; Men with Men working that which is unseemly and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

Homosexuals use a Colorful flag to promote their  Sinfulness, taking fleshy pride and joy in what God calls evil the same as Pagans do, they also use Color in their Spiritual Adultery when they worship their gods but they are both in darkness.

Does God Love those who Sin, He Loves everyone but He does not accept evil as OK,  He hates evil  and so should we and in no way promote it but that does not mean we hate those who commit evil or we would need to hate ourselves, our Sin put Jesus on the Cross.

Does God discriminate, yes He does against all that is evil because Sin separates us from Him but He  gives Mankind freewill to choose good from evil because He does not want Puppets but He grieves for all those that will reap the evil they sow, causing them to suffer Eternally unless they repent which shows they believe in Jesus as their Lord and Saviour and in doing so they than turn away from the evil they are doing and seek to do good by the empowering of The Holy Spirit as they walk in His Fruit.

Proverbs 8:32-36 Now therefore hearken unto me O ye Children for blessed are they that keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise and refuse it not. Blessed is the Man that heareth me watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoso findeth me findeth life and shall obtain favour of the Lord. But he that Sinneth against me wrongeth his own Soul all they that hate me love death.

Psalm 94:23 And He shall bring upon them their own iniquity and shall cut them off in their own wickedness yea The Lord our God shall cut them off.

Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore brothers we have an obligation but it is not to the Sinful nature to Live according to it or if you Live according to the Sinful Nature you will die  but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

If you have been or are involved with Homosexuality  in anyway and your frightened that you have gone too far, repent now and be set free… Jesus Loves you and does not want you to be hurt, it’s not His will anyone perishes, He came to seek and save the lost, He does not Condemn you, He wants to Rescue you, Cleanse you  and Complete you and keep you close to Him always.

Let’s Thank God for His Guidelines in how to Live Holy Lives and to be Perfected in Love which He has confirmed in Scripture and let’s also continue to Pray for those who walk in darkness, Loving them as God Loved us even in our Sinfulness but hating the evil they propagate.

Christian Love and Blessings- Anne.

    • Do you know Brooke the History of Slavery in the Scriptures and in our own History too? do you know how it was Stopped and by who or how it was established in the first place? and do you know God’s guidelines for those who had Slaves during those times.

      If you do get a Slave Brooke instead of a Husband, make sure you have comfortable Accommodation for a good nights sleep for them and of course provide good nutritious food and suitable clothing, it may cost you a bit but you will be keeping them off the Street and thy will be able to do all you ask for, that is of course if they don’t get Sick…You do have Medical cover don’t you? don’t forget to upgrade it, you will be classified as a family now, anyway Brooke All the Best with your Slave!

  2. I heard about the same sex marriage bill passed in Australia. And I was not in the least surprised because some other western nations have gone that way before.

    In my country Nigeria, same sex union attracts 14 years jail term if convicted… Even when Obama then wanted to prevail on my then president to pass the bill in favour of same sex marriage, it was strong resisted by both Christians and non Christians alike.

  4. Nehemiah Project says:

    Just some previous thoughts. Personally, I no longer care whether same genders want to marry. It has no bearing on me, my marriage or society. However, adultery, pedophilia, pornography all have had serious affect on marriage, families and society and they are serious issues within the Church. We have little regard for the mess within our own House.

    Note: AIDS is the culmination of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus) and HIV has its roots from chimps, possibly monkey,s and was likely transferred via a lab by way of inoculations. Nothing I have read indicates that it started with homosexuals. Actually, where it is rampant among African peoples, they are heterosexuals and it is spread due to naive and uneducated thinking.

    I have to be honest…the Church spends too much time telling “sinners” everything they are doing wrong and how they need to come to Jesus and less time simply being Jesus. Jesus did not make issue of particular sin(s), but presented Himself to others. We would rather bash folks over the head with their sin, then slap them with a graceless version of the Gospel.
    Jesus. Love. Grace.
    If anyone changes, that is all up to Him.

    • Sin is Sin John and God hates all evil and this includes Homosexuality which He makes very clear. Yes He Loves the Sinner but He hates their Sin and it’s not Love for us to watch Satan get a foothold in someones life and not warn them when they continue to Sin regardless of what the Sin is, God’s Grace does not give us the Freedom to Sin.

      Romans 6 :1- 2 What shall we say then? Shall we Continue in Sin that Grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we that are dead to Sin live any longer therein?

      Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers we have an obligation but it is not to the Sinful Nature to live according to it or if you live according to the Sinful Nature you will die but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will Live because those who are Led by the Spirit of God are Sons of God.

      In reference John to Aids and Animals, I would rather believe God than what is read and copied in error by others on the Internet and He makes it very clear that Aid’s comes from the Act of Homosexuality as confirmed by the Scriptures in my Post above. But why accept the Theory that Monkeys develops AIDS whether from HIV or SIV and pass it on to Humans when it has never been proven by proper Scientific evidence.(see link below)

      • Nehemiah Project says:

        I respectfully disagree with your assessment concerning AIDS origin. I have read and scanned several articles on this and nothing indicates this as some sort of gay plague. I will say that it is a huge problem among gay men, but since men tend to be selfish when it comes to sexual contact, that is a dangerous mix and all it takes is one or two men among a community of sexually prolific men to make it a massive epidemic.
        As per the Romans references, I keep in mind that the letters we see in the NT are addressed to the churches…Christian audience…not to the populace. My “rules” are based on God-given convictions and have no place among the unsaved. How my neighbor lives is not for me to legislate. My responsibility is to represent the Gospel.
        I really enjoy your viewpoint, regardless of how I see things. You are firm and clearly communicate your points. Thank you for your forthright honesty.

        • John what I share mostly does not come from what the Internet propagates unless proven without doubt but findings there are mostly hearsay and not factual and their error is repeated on other Websites. Truth is always found in God’s inspired Words in Scripture and as confirmed below this includes reference to Homosexuals who reap what they sow. Their unnatural sexual intercourse produces Aids and than they pass it on to others, it is why God had to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah and other polluted Civilizations, even in the times of Noah Homosexuality was known, it is why the fallen Angels are held in chains awaiting judgment as confirmed in (Jude 1:6)

          Romans 1:26-27 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections for even their Women did change the natural use into that which is against Nature and likewise also the Men leaving the natural use of the Woman burned in their lust one toward another; Men with Men working that which is unseemly and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.K.J.V

          It has been Medically proven John that Aid’s comes from a Bacteria in the Anus, it attacks the Immune System leaving it susceptible to infection. Aid’s is passed on through intercourse both to Men and Woman and to Babies through the Placenta, yes many Homosexuals have Sex with both Men and Woman, some to produce Children for their Homosexual Marriages others because they are still Married or in relationship with the opposite sex, see Link below for more detail.

          • Nehemiah Project says:

            Just a note on Sodom and Gomorrah…In Ezekiel 16 we read…Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
            There is no concrete indication that those cities were full of homosexuals, with the exception of the famous incident. Even then, it could have been hideously foul threats by despicable men. God had already decided to destroy the cities before that incident.
            As for gay men being originators of AIDS…sorry, there is no evidence of that. Many have been carriers and their prolific sexual lifestyle, especially in the late seventies and early eighties, spread the disease like wildfire. Patient “zero” was nearly sixty years ago…a Congonese man infected – unknown how – by a specific species of chimpanzee. As to any accusations of tainted internet articles, the same could go for other articles which try to prove that AIDS is some sort of plague sent by God to punish gay people.
            With that logic in mind…there should be a lot more plagues and such for sinners, if sin is sin. But, considering what Jesus said and did, I don’t see that, either.
            Gluttony is a larger issue than homosexuality. So is greed. Adultery. Yet, we want to be sure to attack – in many cases, yes, attack – people who comprise less than 5% of our population. Just in the Church alone, adultery is in much higher numbers.
            Again, I still go back to Jesus. What He said and did, how He talked to people and treated them. All of them. This I want as my barometer.

            • Jude 1:7 Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

              Genesis 19:1-11 But before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom both young and old all the people to the last man surrounded the house. And they called to Lot; “Where are the Men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them.”

              Romans 1:26-27 For their Women exchanged Natural relations for those that are contrary to Nature and the Men likewise gave up Natural relations with Women and were consumed with passion for one another, Men committing shameless acts with Men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

              1 Corinthians 6:9 Or do you not know that the Unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor Men who practice Homosexuality,

              HIV is the most feared of all sexually transmitted infections and for good reason. This virus is the cause of AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome), a disease that killed 2 million people worldwide in 2007 alone. In the United States, more than 500,000 have died from the disease. The disease is most often spread through sexual contact — both heterosexual and homosexual and through sharing needles.

    • In reference John to your statement; “How my Neighbor lives is not for me to legislate” I will share some Scripture with you about what God tells us is our responsibility with those who continue to Sin without Heart Repentance. But as I shared before John; it’s not Love to watch others walking in Sin and heading for Eternal Punishment and not warn them but we do so with the confirmation of God’s Truth and not just what we may believe their doing wrong, such as with their weaknesses and shortcomings, these we are not to judge critically, yes we all have them but Sin is Sin and we don’t just look the other way and ignore the evil actions of others or our own as confirmed in the Scriptures below but our correction of them is done in Love and for Love, even if needing to be firm.

      Ezekiel 33:8-9 When I say unto the wicked; O wicked Man thou shalt surely die, if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity but his blood will I require at thine hand. Nevertheless if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from it if he do not turn from his way he shall die in his iniquity but thou hast delivered thy Soul. (KJV)

      Leviticus 19:17 You shall not hate your brother in your heart. You shall surely Rebuke your Neighbor and not bear Sin because of him. (NKJV)

      James 5:19-20 Brethren, if any of you do err from the Truth and one convert him Let him know that he which converteth the Sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death and shall hide a multitude of Sins.

      Proverbs 27:5-6 Open Rebuke is better than secret love. Faithful are the wounds of a friend but the kisses of an enemy are deceitful.(KJV)

      Leviticus 19:15 Ye shall do no Unrighteousness in Judgment thou shalt not Respect the person of the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty but in Righteousness shalt thou Judge thy Neighbour (KJV)

      Psalm 94:16 Who will rise up for me against the Evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of Iniquity?(KJV)

      Ephesians 5:8-11 For you were once darkness but now you are Light in the Lord. Live as Children of Light for ( the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness and truth) and find out what pleases the Lord. Have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness but rather expose them.

      Luke 17:3-5 Take heed to yourselves if thy brother trespass against thee Rebuke him and if he Repent, Forgive him. And if he Trespass against thee seven times in a day and seven times in a day turn again to thee saying; I repent thou shalt forgive him. And the Apostles said unto the Lord Increase our Faith.

      1 Timothy 5:21-22 Them that Sin Rebuke before all that others also may fear. I charge thee before God and the Lord Jesus Christ and the elect Angels that thou observe these things without preferring one before another doing nothing by partiality. Lay hands suddenly on no man neither be partaker of other Men’s Sins keep thyself Pure.(KJV)

      Proverbs 9:8-9 Reprove not a scorner lest he hate thee Rebuke a wise Man and he will Love thee. Give instruction to a wise Man, and he will be yet wiser teach a just Man and he will increase in learning.(KJV)

      Ecclesiastes 7:4-6 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise, than for a man to hear the song of fools. For as the crackling of thorns under a pot, so is the laughter of the fool this also is vanity.(KJV)

      2 Timothy 4:1-3 I charge thee therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom. Preach the word be instant in season, out of season, reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers having itching ears;(KJV)

      Titus 2 :11 -15 For the grace of God that bringeth Salvation hath appeared to all Men Teaching us that denying ungodliness and worldly lusts we should live Soberly, Righteously and Godly, in this present World; Looking for that blessed hope and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ who gave Himself for us that He might Redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar people zealous of Good Works. These things Speak and Exhort and Rebuke with all Authority. Let no man despise thee..(KJV)

      Titus 1:12-14 One of themselves even a Prophet of their own said; the Cretians are always liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore Rebuke them sharply that they may be sound in the Faith not giving heed to Jewish fables and Commandments of Men that turn from the Truth.(KJV)

      Ecclesiastes 7:4-6 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning but the heart of fools is in the house of mirth. It is better to hear the rebuke of the wise than for a Man to hear the song of fools. For as the crackling of thorns under a pot so is the laughter of the fool this also is vanity.(KJV)

      Proverbs 27:17 Iron Sharpeneth Iron so a Man Sharpeneth the Countenance of his friend.(KJV)

      • Nehemiah Project says:

        Then, why didn’t Jesus go around pointing out each persons’ sin and demanding repentance? The only people He was forthright with were the religious who spent time doing just that. This is what led me to take another look and re-examine my stances on people and sin.
        The NT verses you shared are from letters addressed to the Church. 2Tim 3:17, for example, “…that the man of God…” Other verses say, “thy brother”.
        Rebuke is another word that is often misunderstood. We have taken it to mean scolding, sharp and direct words in order to, essentially, shame someone. However, in the Greek, epitimao is often the word used for rebuke…it is to warn by instructing (not scolding or condemning), but also has the literal meaning of “place due weight/honor upon”.
        I could go on further, but I don’t wish to write a book, here. As it is, I am sharing what I have been learning and what I know and do not value you based on whether you agree with me, or not.
        Basically, when I read about Jesus, I do not see the pattern a sizable portion of the Church has adopted when it comes to people and sin.

    • Because Believers in Scripture John are often referred to as Brothers or Men and Sons, do you really believe that all of God’s Guidelines are only for Men to obey ? Although our Roles are different, Woman are One in Christ Jesus with Men Spiritually as confirmed in the Scripture below.

      Galatians 3:28-29 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither Male nor Female, for ye are all one in Christ Jesus and if ye be Christ’s then are ye Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the Promise.

      Woman can share God’s Truth and use it to Correct and Warn those who Sin or are in error as we see Deborah did and other Woman in Scripture but yes they are not to be Ordained which would mean they would be in Authority over Men in the Church and Wives are to submit and obey their Husbands too unless they ask them to do what God tells us is evil or they do to them what is evil, which God hates. Husbands are to Love their wives as Christ Loves The Church and they are also not to leave even their non Christian Wives, the same as Woman are also not to leave their unbelieving Husbands.

      Jesus told the Woman caught in Adultery to go and Sin no more and yes He did address those who condemned her, He wrote their Sins in the sand like they did in the Temple, that is why they left, they hadn’t had Heart Repentance or been Baptized which we are all to do and yet they were pointing the finger at others for their Sins.

      Jesus corrected and warned those who Sinned, including His Disciples and we are also told to warn and and correct those who Sin John as we saw confirmed in the Scriptures that I shared with you before and in those below which also show the Plan of Salvation and it is not just what I believe but what God tells us which is the same as everything I share or it’s confirmed by His Creation or Biblical History and Prophesy .

      We do not John continue to Sin as Christians until we die, Jesus as you can see below made this very clear but sadly it is what some believe so they don’t work out their Salvation not meaning work for it but we are to show we have it.

      John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the Truth everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the Family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

      The Plan of Salvation…..

      We are to put our Carnal flesh to death……..

      Romans 8 :12-15 Therefore, brothers we have an obligation but it is not to the Sinful nature to live according to it or if you live according to the Sinful nature you will die but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body you will live because those who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.

      Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death therefore whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

      Galatians 24 -26 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. if we live in the Spirit let us also walk in the Spirit. Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another.

      2 Corinthians 7: 1 Having therefore these promises, dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, Perfecting Holiness in the fear of God

      We are to Aim to be Perfected in Love…….

      Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore Perfect even as your Father which is in Heaven is Perfect

      Hebrews 6:1 Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ let us go on unto Perfection not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of Faith toward God.

      Philippians 3:14-16 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Let us therefore as many as be Perfect be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded God shall reveal even this unto you. Nevertheless where to we have already attained let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing.

      2Timothy 3:17 That the Man of God may be Perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

      1John 4:16-19 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love; and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God, and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as He is, so are we in this world. There is no fear in Love; but Perfect Love casteth out fear because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. We Love Him because He first Loved us.

      1 John 2:4-6 He that saith I know Him and keepeth not His commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word in him verily is the Love of God Perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith hebideth in Him ought himself also so to walk even as He walked.

      2Corinthians 13:11 Finally, brethren, farewell. Be Perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in Peace and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.

      We are to no longer Sin……….

      1 John 3:9 No one who is Born of God will continue to Sin, because God’s seed remains in him he cannot go on Sinning because he has been Born of God.

      1John 5 18-20 We know that no one who is Born of God Sins but He who was Born of God keeps him, and the evil one does not touch him.

      Romans 6:11 Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto Sin but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

      What we believe in our heart dominates our thoughts and becomes our words and actions. Proverbs 23:7a K.J.V

      John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.

      Romans 6:18-20 Being then made free from Sin, ye became the Servants of Righteousness.

      Romans 6:22-23 But now being made free from Sin and become Servants to God ye have your fruit unto Holiness and the end Everlasting Life. For the wages of Sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

      What people get confused about John are weaknesses and shortcomings, which we all have but they are not Judged as Sin, such as Anger when it comes from grief or confusion is not a Sin but we do not hold onto bitterness an resentment and seek revenge instead of forgiving if we do it is Sin. Jesus came to heal not condemn , Man judges critically and without Love and Compassion because he looks on the outside but God sees the heart and knows the motivation or the reason.

      1John 3 – No one who lives in Him keeps on Sinning. No one who continues to Sin has either seen Him or known Him. Dear children do not let anyone lead you astray. He who does what is right is Righteous, just as He is Righteous.

      1 John 2:4-6 He that saith, I know Him, and keepeth not His Commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth His word, in him verily is the Love of God Perfected: hereby know we that we are in Him. He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.

      Colossians 3:4-6 When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory. Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.

      1John 4:16-17 And we have known and believed the Love that God hath to us. God is Love and he that dwelleth in Love dwelleth in God and God in him. Herein is our Love made Perfect that we may have boldness in the day of Judgment because as He is so are we in this World.

      Romans 6:6- 7 For we know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of Sin might be done away with that we should no longer be slaves to Sin because anyone who has died has been freed from Sin.

      It is True John that if we claim we have not Sinned an don’t need Salvation we are calling God a lair but if we continue to Sin we are still in darkness(1John1) yes we can be-forgiven if we come to Heart Repentance,Jesus is our Advocate. Paul explained the weakness of the flesh in Romans 7 but shared what to do about it in Romans 8 and other Scriptures as noted above.

      When I was confused John it benefited me greatly when I asked for God’s Wisdom and Empowering instead of Trusting in what Man propagated, see Link below.

    • Just because you don’t agree with God’s inspired Words in Scripture John you can’t ignore them or claim they were added in later and even delete them, that’s what Cults do. Where does it end, what else don’t you agree with John that God inspired Man to write in the Scriptures, some even claim Paul was evil and ignore what he wrote too.

      1 Timothy 2:11-14 Let the Woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a Woman to Teach nor to usurp Authority over the man but to be in silence. For Adam was first formed then Eve and Adam was not deceived but the Woman being deceived was in the transgression.

      Eve was deceived at first and ate the forbidden fruit, Eve than knew what she had done was wrong but still encouraged Adam to disobey God and so she also Sinned and yes Adam chose to do what Eve asked him to do instead of what God had told him he must not do, so Adam Sinned too, he put Eve before God and this often happens today too.

      I have heard error Preached by Ordained Woman in Churches and harmful decisions and wrong responses done by other Woman who are in Authority over Men in the Church. God tells us Woman are not to Speak meaning Teach or Preach in a Congregation of Men and Woman. His Guidelines for us must not be ignored, it is Sin to do so and shows The Holy Spirit is not indwelling that person when they disobey and that He is being grieved.

      You are not under my Authority John nor am I under yours on my Blog so in future your Comments will be Moderated as I do not want your error being propagated here, you are disregarding or ignoring Scripture regardless of your reasons for doing this, so what is the point of my sharing God’s Truth with you , it seems He is not in Authority you are.

        I love your stance. I am not here to change you, simply expressing what I have been (re) learning and perhaps raising questions. I apologize if anything seemed otherwise.
        However, I am not a novice. I have heard, heeded and walked in many teachings, and been part of several denominations for more than 40 years. I do not disregard scripture, at all. Nor do I yield to every breeze of doctrine that comes my way. I do challenge some of the age old doctrines, as one who once embraced them. (Luther once embraced the doctrine of penance, until he saw grace and how “penance” was misinterpreted from what was really, repentance.)
        I appreciate how you stand. Yet, instead of discussing or asking about my view, you shoot me down as if I am 100% wrong. I find that curious, really. The only reason I have not asked you about what you have presented, is because I have embraced these teachings for many years, myself. In the past ten years, I have re-examined things, praying and seeking as I went. I also consulted with someone who has studied Hebrew and another who knows Greek. I also have looked into those languages in my own study. I try to examine the context, culture and history of the writings.
        I re-read the accounts of Jesus, His love and grace. Everything else spins off of these.
        You likely think I am a heretic…well, that is really okay. I do challenge orthodoxies/doctrines. Many of them have been in error for centuries, yet we have embraced them because they are taught by those we have unquestionably followed, generation after generation. I have done this, but no longer.
        Please, moderate, if you must. I am not offended. I would rather someone is honest than someone who pats people on the head with a “Bless your heart” dismissal.

                    Nothing I shared contradicts, especially when we read how Jesus dealt with people. Woman at the Well, Zaccheus, the Roman Centurion, just to name a few. Their sin was not thrown in their faces. Jesus presented Himself.
                    No one tells me what to think. I spent years soaking in what others told me. When I saw that what much of what they were feeding me was, at least, questionable, I emptied all that info from my mind and grabbed my Bible, praying as I went. Yes, I consult with others. Is it not wise to seek wise counsel? Doesn’t iron sharpen iron?
                    I fully appreciate how you stand. One tough Grannie Annie, you are. It is great to question what anyone else believes or teaches. Yet, there was no question, here. You took your stand (admirable) without question. What if…I say, if…you saw something wrong? After all, we only “see through a glass dimly” – none of us has all the answers, not even if we have what may appear as scriptural proof. Not saying this about you…but, you and I know there are those out there who say, “the Bible is clear…” and are as close to being right as a dingo is to being a cat.
                    Sorry for the Australian wildlife reference.
                    The Bible is not as clear as some suggest. There are a few errors in some spots and even more in some language interpretations.
                    It is a matter of Ipsissima Verba, versus Ipsissima Vox, or, Exact Words vs Exact Voice. His voice has been preserved, no matter of the exact words. It is acceptable, though, to consider there are errors in there. Just because it is inspired does not mean it is perfect or inerrant. God’s voice is perfect, of course. The errors are minor, over the whole, but they become serious when someone builds and entire doctrine around something they take as literal.
                    This is why I go back to Jesus. If it does not line up with what we read about Him, what He taught, said and how He interacted with people, then question should be raised and prayerful study/investigation should be done.
                    I like your stance. If you were in a doctrinal boxing ring with a kangaroo, that roo had better run.

    • You seem to forget John the times Jesus did rebuke others such as when He got Angry and got a whip out and overturned tables. He also called the Pharisees a brood of Vipers, He Rebuked Peter and told him what he was saying was from Satan. Jesus also corrected James and John and Martha who did not have her priorities right. Paul also Rebuked firmly those who were in error.

      Please read the Scriptures I shared John and the Link below about my Confusion and about God’s Wisdom, you will than understand why I have no doubts that what I share is God’s Truth and is not in error, He has even shown me Translation error.

        Jesus did have words for those around Him…His followers. It was to correct and guide them away from “stinkin’ thinkin'” He never corrected “sinners”.

        I shared about the temple incident in Turning Tables and Kicking Butts, only a few posts ago.

        The Pharisees had the truth right in front of them. They are what I equate with today’s “evangelicals” and “Christian Right”. Regardless of what they knew of scripture, they were more about being judgmental and legalistic. Jesus had enough to say to those religious men.

        Each verse you share, here, is excellent. Yet, I see that each is addressed to His people. Not the world.

        My convictions are not the rules for the world. They can steal, be gay, adulterers, fornicators, gluttons or rodeo clowns. I am not in the position to point out how they live and tell them they are in sin. I am to be a witness to what Jesus has done. His Spirit does the rest, should they respond to His call.

        First Corinthians 5 starts with the difference between judging the world and judging the household. There was sin right there in their own camp and they even seemed proud of it. Followers. In sin. Serious, damaging sin. Paul even asked what good it is to judge those outside of the Church. His stern words were for the followers of Christ…not those outside.

    • It seems John that you are not reading the Scriptures I have shared with you which I have now posted again below. Jesus told the Woman caught in Adultery to go and Sin no more and we know He said many more things that were not recorded at that time that would overflow a Library, although Paul did share some of them.

      The Scriptures confirm we are to Correct, Rebuke and Warn our Neighbors which is everyone we know and we do so because we Love them and don’t want Satan to get a foothold in their lives, we are Jesus’ Arms, Hands, Feet and Voice in this Hurting World.

      This is the end of our Conversation John, you are still Trusting in what you think and ignoring God’s inspired Words in Scripture so there is no point continuing, sadly I feel you don’t Trust the Scriptures because you believe there is error in them but if you ask God for His Wisdom and Empowering by The Holy Spirit you won’t be deceived He will lead you into all Truth.

          I went to a Church that welcomed practicing Homosexuals even though they claimed to be Christians, they were Partners and they were never rebuked even though they had been in the Church for over a year. God tells us not to even have Holy Communion unless we have confessed our Sins, which also means turning away from Evil and doing good.

          In reference to those outside the Church who Sin, only God can Judge their Eternal Destiny, He knows their Hearts we don’t, they may come to True Heart Repentance on their deathbed or before, do we rebuke them …What do the Scriptures tell us to do? (see below)

    • John you need to read all of Chapter 5 and you seem to be unaware of a lot of other Scriptures that refer to those who Sin in the Church. God tells us to have nothing to do with the fruitless deeds of darkness but rather expose them, so how can we welcome and condone Practicing, Unrepentant Homosexuals into our Churches or anyone who Continues to Sin, even for them to have Holy Communion means they would be guilty of the Body and Blood of The Lord –

      1Corinthians 26 -30 For as often as ye eat this bread and drink this Cup ye do shew the Lord’s death till He come.Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread and drink this Cup of The Lord unworthily shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a Man examine himself and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that Cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily eateth and drinketh damnation to himself not discerning The Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you and many sleep.

      Yes we are to Love everybody John including those who continue to Sin such as unrepentant Homosexuals but this does not mean we have to accept, agree or like the evil they do or are we to have fellowship with them in the Body of Christ, His Church until they Repent and stop doing the evil they are doing. God doesn’t accept as OK the evil they do or any other Sin, it’s their choice if they reap the evil they sow but it’s not God’s will anyone perishes, which means to be Eternally separated from Him but He knows those who will be and they are a abomination to Him in the evil they do.

      Proverbs 11:19-20 As Righteousness tendeth to life so he that pursueth evil pursueth it to his own death. They that are of a froward heart are abomination to the Lord but such as are upright in their way are His delight.

      John 8:34-36 Jesus replied, “I tell you the Truth everyone who Sins is a slave to Sin. Now a slave has no permanent place in the family but a son belongs to it forever. So if the Son sets you free you will be free indeed.

        I have read this entire chapter. Many times.
        It is specific to a man who had a sexual relationship with his father’s wife. Some say this was incest, but it does not say it was his own mother. No matter, it is adultery, which is an issue spoken about 52 times in the Bible, including one of the Ten Commandments. Verse 10 says, “…NOT meaning the immoral people of this world, OR idolaters, swindlers or the greedy ones…” There is, first, a distinction between immoral and the other sins and, second, the word, “immoral” is most often used in reference to adultery. Thirdly, if we don’t allow “them” within our precious doors, we send a message of exclusivity.

        As to homosexuality – there are six scriptures that are used to condemn them. I have a future post I am making notes on addressing this. There are severe extremes on both sides of this issue. I want to express a more level-ground on the issue.

        Neither one of us quite dropped this. My apologies for dragging this on. Keep an eye out for my next few posts…some of these thoughts will be eking out in them.

    • I decided to let you continue John so I could share with you some more Scripture but you still don’t see why you are in error when you say that the Church should welcome practicing Homosexuals into Fellowship as being one with us in The Body of Christ, this is refuted by Scripture some of which we can see below and in others that I have shared in Comments above. We are to keep God’s Church Pure.

      1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Or do you not know that the Unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice Homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the Kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

      I Corinthians 5: 11-13 But now I have written unto you Not to keep company if any Man that is called a Brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner with such an one no not to eat. For what have I to do to judge them also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within? But them that are without, God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that Wicked Person.

      1Corinthians 26 -30 For as often as ye eat this bread and drink this Cup ye do shew the Lord’s death till He come.Wherefore whosoever shall eat this bread and drink this Cup of The Lord unworthily shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord. But let a Man examine himself and so let him eat of that bread and drink of that Cup. For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily eateth and drinketh damnation to himself not discerning The Lord’s body. For this cause many are weak and sickly among you and many sleep.

      1 Timothy 1:9-10 Understanding this, that the Law is not laid down for the Just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and Sinners, for the Unholy and Profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, Men who practice Homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers and whatever else is contrary to sound Doctrine.

      Blessings – Anne.

  5. Looks like we have the same thoughts about this subject, as here in U.K the Government want “same sex education” to be taught and not that long ago
    I saw a post on Facebook about a young boy of 7 dressing as a Girl and wearing lipstick, with his parents blessing and all those who commented were in full of support and Praising the parents for being free thinkers and even loving parents!

    • Yes Graham we are in agreement with what God tells us is Evil and this includes Homosexuality in all of it’s forms. How sad that this young Child was encouraged to swap genders, I have witnessed the disturbing affects this has on Children when they become Teenagers and Adults, they feel very insecure and unsure of their own sexual identity.

      Sue’s Comment below also caused me a great deal of concern, she said; America has gone much farther now Incest is being considered to be made Legal.

      We are indeed in the End times and we will see much evil around us and even in the Churches as God’s Word is watered down or ignored.

      Thank you Graham for visiting and sharing, God Bless you greatly – Anne.

    Back a few days later but here I am, computers and health a good mixture. Just when I think I riding good. Hmm! but I’m getting there. Yes I don’t like the fact that same sex marriage got through. There is going to be so much flow on, I don’t think Australia realises what is going to happen. Great post my friend.

    • It’s good to hear from you again Bj but would you believe it I’m now having Computer problems too, I may have lost all my In Box again but not sure I’m still checking but at least I can still Comment on my Blog.

      Yes sadly same Sex Marriage is now accepted, it is another Sign that the Beast is soon to appear and his mark too but Jesus will return for us before the end comes and than God’s Judgment.

      All those who are unsaved will suffer in the Lake of Fire for Eternity but we will not be Judged for our Sins like they will be. Having Repented of them, our Sins have been taken from us as far as the East is to the West and God chooses not to remember them anymore, our Judgement will be only for our rewards .

      I will be in touch soon Bj, Christian Love and God’s Blessings – Anne.

  7. When people allow their Carnal flesh to control them instead of putting it death by The Spirit they become Victims to it’s Power, it destroys all the goodness in them which is what happens to practicing Homosexuals and to others who also continue to Sin and never have Heart Repentance.

    Our Abba Father longs for all His Children to come to Heart Repentance and knows those who will and those who won’t and it grieves Him because He hates evil and all those who reject Salvation in Christ Jesus are evil.

    Blessings – Grannie Annie.

    • Hi Sally, Thank you for Visiting and Sharing even though Homosexuality is a very Controversial subject and yes with Heart Repentance which is always our choice, we have the free Gift of Salvation because it shows we believe in Jesus as our Lord and Saviour and so God protects our Soul.

    Here in America it has gone much farther, sadly, than just same sex “marriage.” Now incest is being considered for becoming legal, transgender is “hot” in front of us and the evil spreads like wildfire. God is not happy and we all will be judged.

    • Thank you David and yes even though Homosexuality is very Controversial we need to make a Stand against what is Evil in all the ways that it’s being propagated today. No we won’t always be applauded when we do but we will be uplifted in knowing we have been Faithful to contend with God against what He calls evil in this Hurting World.

      Christian Love Always – Anne.
