    The article stated that freedom of religion does not protect you from breaking the law.

    So how that affect us as evangelical Christians.

    How about when laws are passed in favor of homosexuals?

    Just recently, the Roman Catholic Church was told it could not discriminate against homosexual "parents"

    Businessmen, such as florists, caterers, ect will be breaking the law if they will not service homosexual "weddings"

    Mind you, I am not endorsing what the Phoenix church is doing, but the principal is still there......

    Seriously?

    I don't think people are confusing Christian churches with this organization.

    I Don't Disagree With Your View...

    ....Nevertheless, with the TBN's, Westboro Baptist, Catholic church cover up (of priests who molest{ed} children) and all the name-it-claim it churches out there, this is one more example that atheist and agnostics love to stick in our face. :tear:

    I am always being confronted in on line discussions by those who use the "whores of religion" to judge (unfairly) those of us who truly love Jesus and are faithful to the Great Commission!

    Any little chink in the armor (no matter how small or large) of the worldwide church will be used to judge us, and make for an arguable rationale against us!

    As for your point, I can only say, I hope you are more correct than my view in this post!

    Pastor Paul :type:

    1 Timothy 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

    2 Corinthians 10:3-5
    3 For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:

    4 (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds; )

    5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

    Brother Paul, the reason why I posted these verses is to encourage you in your walk with God, and in your battles against satan. Satan will always fight against the Bride of the Lamb, so I rejoice in knowing that whenever he attacks me, then I am on the RIGHT SIDE!! The day the Church quits having "spats" with satan, and we CHRISTians are still here(do not confuse this with pre-mill, because I mean that as long as the church is here, satan with battle against Her), is the day I will start worrying. Satan can do no more than what God will allow him to do. Rejoice in tribulations, knowing that your redemption draweth nigh!!


    Romans 5

    3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

    4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

    5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.


    I love you Brother Paul. Keep your head up high, you chest out, and boast in the Lord!!

    i am I AM's!!

    Willis
