    Indeed. The blues were born in the Mississippi Delta. W.C. Handy.

    You must not know the NT very well if you think it simply reinforces what was written in the OT.

    And your theological background to be the final word in interpretation is?

    Give his personal recollection a break.

    Elvis may have heard the blues being sung 12 years earlier at that age, but I doubt Phil did, or if Phil did, knew what he was hearing.
    You're reading way too much into my statement. Relax.

They follow the preacher man telling them what to believe. They follow Paul. They follow the Pharisees. They follow the hatred in their own hearts which requires them to persecute a small group of people in order to feel better about themselves. They don't follow Jesus, and in fact, they have so little respect for Him that they think He was too incompetent to know what was important.

    If the persecution of gay people was so important, Jesus would have said so. To think otherwise shows such incredible arrogance and is so dismissive of the one they claim to follow as to be the work of a source quite different than the one they think they follow.

    Open up the N.T. and read the red letters. That's all they need to do, and only when people start following HIM can they say they are His representative.
    That's the hard cold truth. Following Christ is not what many modern Christians are doing; they're following something completely different. The proof is in these 50 versus.

    How few people really follow these lessons from Christ on brotherly love? And, many of our American Christians follow none of them.

    So stop with the faux outrage when you already know.


    He was speaking about what was sin. That is not speaking hate.
    You might want to learn the difference.
    He was not loving his brother; he was preaching hate at the brothers who are not attracted to vaginas. Maybe you can't follow this, like you cannot follow how condemning homosexuals while ignoring those who eat shellfish is hypocritical.

    There is incredible arrogance in your assumption.
    As persecution of gay folks, in their belief, would have been the norm, the fact that he didn't speak out against it says far more.

    No he wasn't.
    And there is nothing hypocritical about the other as you have already been shown.

    And since you have already been shown multiple times, by various folks, it is you who are having issues with following and understanding.

    One thing's for sure: The New Testament wasn't written, because The Old Testament got it all wrong.
