    So this is going to sound sarcastic or snide but I am sincerely asking you to explain this to me. If you don't mind. I see a contradiction between this kind of exclusion and judgement and what is at the heart of the New Testament. I assume you do not. Can you explain that to me?

    No, it really isn't. Factually, it has been shown not to be. Sorry.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    If you read all of my posts in this thread, they should give you the answers you seek.

    See I didn't exclude or pass judgement on any of her or my gay friends. I set boundaries and they followed suit.

    The Lord will make the final judgement for everyone.

    then how do you put any ,excuse the term, faith in what is written or what GAWD wants/needs/desires?

    How do you know what a sin is or isn't and who should or shouldn't be embraced by religious leaders?

    Okay, but it seems you do that towards gays in general. So does that model change when dealing with the gay community as a whole? If so, why and how and how is that change in keeping with the heart of NT message?
