You belong to a touchy-feely, LIEberal church, don't you? I can tell. 'Did Jesus condemn the woman who was caught in idolatry???' 'Did he bash her and tell her that she was living in sin???' 'What about the woman who poured perfume on his feet??' 'In the site of the Pharasees and Tax collectors she was a prostitute and a whore.' First, there was no woman "caught in idolatry." From that statement, I can tell you've never OPENED a Bible, let along READ it -- you have been merely content to let your pastor or minister (whom I'll bet is a woman or a practicing homosexual) READ the Scripture to you once a week, and you call that "Bible study". And I'm sure that you have conveniently ignored the fact that in each case, the whores and adulteresses with whom Jesus spoke were told "to go and SIN NO MORE." Did Jesus say, "Oh, that's all right -- you just continue FORNICATING and WHORING and everything will be just fine?" Did Jesus say, "Oh, you're just living a valid ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE and the Pharisees are just not CELEBRATING DIVERSITY?" NO. Those women were WHORES and ADULTERESSES, and as such they DESERVED to be struck dead on the spot; and it's only through His mercy that He allowed them to live, provided that they GO AND SIN NO MORE. And did Jesus tell us to tolerate RAMPANT IMMORALITY, DEVIANT SEX BEHAVIOR, PERVERSION, and BLASPHEMY as "ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLES" so we can "CELEBRATE DIVERSITY"? No. He said, "I tell you, that unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, there is no way you shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven." (Matthew 5:20) and "Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect." (Matthew 5:48). THAT is the STANDARD He has given us, which HE EXPECTS US TO KEEP. I suggest YOU start WORKING towards THAT STANDARD, Missy -- if you know what's good for you.
