(=This is only the start of a long tiraid he goes off against dozens of other people=)
Martin Yirrell: No one is a Gay Christian.
GMaccy101: Seriously, find something more worthwhile to do with your time and leave Vicky alone.
Martin Yirrell: There can be nothing more worthwhile than warning the sinner of the peril they are in.
GMaccy101: We shall not agree so best if you go and find some other people to be more positive with.
Martin Yirrell: You don't think my comment is positive, it is at the heart of the gospel.
GMaccy101: If that is your gospel, it's not love as far as I'm concerned. Look at the hurt you are causing. Now, go and spread some love somewhere else.
Martin Yirrell: Is it not love to warn sinners of the peril they are in and point them to the only answer?
It is not love to accept their sin and say nothing about it.
The surgeon's knife causes pain but in the long term heals.
maartenw #FBPE: No surgeon would remove Cataracts from your eyes if he was suffering from the same condition. You are infected with the same disease so no, you have no right to judge. Take the Plank out of your own eye first
Martin Yirrell: Try reading the rest of Matthew 7. And should I not warn those in mortal danger of their danger?
maartenw #FBPE: Nope you're so full of your own sin you don't even know what sin is. All you have is your own highly unreliable interpretation of the bible. Furthermore this isn't about warning others. You do this because it feeds your pride and makes you feel better about yourself.
Martin Yirrell: Actually it's a fairly plain statement:
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. (Matthew 7:15 [ESV])
Clearly you didn't bother reading the rest of Matthew 7.
Larry McCauley: It's self-indulgence dressed up as concern. Love doesn't harass or uselessly re-open wounds. As for sin...sin is a choice. Being gay is not. As far as condemnation goes; God is love & all encompassing. What is all-encompassing can have no opposite.
Martin Yirrell: Being 'gay' is simply a choice to behave in a sexually immoral way. God is three persons, not an all encompassing force.
Martin Yirrell: Try to stop using potty language like a seven year old.
Crispin: Martin, whatever profound mental issues you have that cause this obsession with other people's sexuality, I urge you not to inflict them on this person you don't know. Or anyone for that matter. Keep your warped head to yourself.
Gerry: That passage..Basically says no one will inhenrit the kingdom... He who is without blame, cast the first stone..
Martin Yirrell: Actually it doesn't, because it goes on to say that Christians are washed from such sin.
Gerry: But that means ALL Christians, including gays
Martin Yirrell: There are no gays.
Martin Yirrell: They are just sexual sinners in need of salvation.
Gerry: #Corinthians 13-'faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.' #Celebrate #Rejoice, don't reject
Martin Yirrell: Homosexuality is not about love, it's about lust.
