The Trinity - What is the Trinity?

Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,
“I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
17 Therefore go out from their midst,
and be separate from them, says the Lord,
and touch no unclean thing;
then I will welcome you,
18 and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty.”
The Bible teaches us to preach to the non-believer, but not to take up with them. Jesus took in sinners not to coddle them and tell them they were OK in their sin, but took them in to preach to them to turn their back on their sin and follow God's path.
I'm quite sure Jesus would not approve, but Phil is just another member of that false church of Christ which takes away the rights of others in the name of their Idol.
Jesus would wholeheartedly approve of preaching the gospel. It is what he asked us to do. He didn't tell us not to offend anyone. In fact he told us quite clearly that there would be those people whop would take great offense to his teachings. Some of those people nailed him to a cross.
Luke 15:1-7Makes you wonder if Phil discriminates against non-Christians and Gays at Duck Command. Someone should find out and then sue his ass into poverty.
1 Now the tax collectors and sinners were all drawing near to hear him. 2 And the Pharisees and the scribes grumbled, saying, “This man receives sinners and eats with them.”
3 So he told them this parable: 4 “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. 6 And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ 7 Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
Jesus asked us to go to the sinner and gather them as a shepard would a sheep, but there is not rejoicing unless the sinner repents. An unrepentant sinner is the sheep we were unable to recover.
This doesn't mean that the repentant stops sinning, but only that they acknowledge their own sin. If homosexuality is a sin (and the Bible pretty clearly states that it is) then a homosexual who does not believe homosexuality is a sin remains an unrepentant sinner.
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
Your hatred of Jesus, and Christians shines through.Originally Posted by calamity
