Please repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. A vote to end discrimination is a vote in favor of a more moral America.
Chuck plays the race card, as usual, ignoring the obvious fact that skin color is morally neutral while sexual behavior is not:
Sadly, there were many religious voices in America that openly opposed the integration of the races in public life – including the integration of the military.
The Bible could not be more clear that homosexual behavior is a sin. Therefore, to encourage people in that sin, as Chuck & Co. do, is hateful. They also blaspheme the Holy Spirit by claiming that He told them the opposite of what He did in the word of God. They obviously don’t fear God, which is more proof of their being fakes.
What is most sickening is implying that the Apostle Paul is on their side.
We know, with Paul, that as Christians, we are many members, but are one body in Christ—members of one another, and that we all have different gifts. With Jesus, we affirm that we are called to love our neighbors as ourselves, that we are called to act as agents of reconciliation and wholeness within the world and within the church itself, ” the General Synod of the United Church of Christ has declared.
Paul would never stop throwing up if he heard Chuck claim they were on the same side. Chuck & Co. don’t even understand the term “agents of reconciliation.” Christians help reconcile men with God through Jesus. That’s the Good News! Chuck is the fake teaching that you don’t need Jesus to be reconciled with God. Here’s the passage in question. Note how badly Chuck has distorted it:
2 Corinthians 5:18–21 (ESV) All this is from God, who through Christ reconciled us to himself and gave us the ministry of reconciliation; that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us. We implore you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Chuck and the Apostle Paul both claim that their message was from God. One of them is lying. Since I know for a fact that Chuck is a serial, unrepentant liar I’m going to stick with Paul as the truth-teller her (uh, that and about 100 other reasons).
