    Using scripture to justify sexual perversion is actually scriptural* 

    Let’s be up front – I make mistakes! In comparison to the standards of God, the “all” of Romans 3:23 includes me. Even if I were to solely go by my own standards in life, I would still fail at living perfectly. But God forbid that I, in any sort of right mind, would use the word of God to pervert the grace of God and justify the sin that I commit against myself, my neighbor or my creator (Romans 6:1).

    I see my sins! And that means that I know I’m not perfect; but I believe there is a perfect law, and that law in no way excuses sin (James 1:21-25). God’s law, through the blood of Jesus the Christ, will justify sin that’s been repented of (Luke 13:3-5, Acts 2:38), but God’s law in no way excuses sin (Ephesians 5:1-7). And you would think the clarity of scriptures such as Romans 1:18-321 Corinthians 6:9-11; 18Galatians 5:16-21Ephesians 4:17-24; 5:1-7Colossians 3:1-11, 1 Thessalonians 4:1-52 Timothy 3:1-7 and 1 Peter 2:9-12 would be enough to convince someone who thinks otherwise to think otherwise (I could have kept going with several more plainly spoken scripture references but if these 67 verses don’t help you to see the truth of the matter, then sadly you’re probably not able to – John 9:25; 39-41). Fact of the matter is, if it weren’t for the scriptures of God that reveals the will of God (2 Timothy 3:16-171 John 1:7-10; 3:4-7Psalm 19:8, 119:172) I wouldn’t even know whether I have sinned against God! (Romans 7:7)

    Despite the sound line of the afore-mentioned reasoning, there are some in the religious world who find great pleasure in using twisting the scriptures of God to excuse sin, and great offense at anyone who “dares” to suggest that one can know that another is committing or living in sin. For proof all you have to do is read this story about offended politicians and the comments that followed where homosexuality and the rest of the LGBTQ letters are defended with verses such as the “ole-reliable” Matthew 7:1-2 (judge not that you be not judged…), Matthew 7:12 (the “golden-rule”) and even Matthew 22:37-40 (the first and second commandment). (More …)

    8-3-2015 Who Is The Antichrist? 

    In the First Century, John wrote: “Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour” (1 John 2:18 NKJV). To those who still think “the Antichrist is coming,” John said many had come “even now,” the “now” being in the First Century. To those who are looking for “the Antichrist,” John said “many antichrists” had already come then. To those who mistakenly think we are now living “in the last days,” John said it was “the last hour” then! There is NO ONE “Antichrist” in Scripture, but there are many who twist Scriptures to make it seem there is. Jesus said, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved.” Who is “antichrist?”

      Many in the religious world believe we are in the “last days”, meaning the time just before the Lord returns. However, the Bible’s reference to the “last days” would be the time after the Lord started his ministry (Heb.1:1-2), i.e. the Christian age, which we are in.
