Boy Scouts Deal with "Gay" question...

I read an article about the boyscouts dealing with the "Gay" question. Here is my problem with an article like the one posted below at the bottom of this post. Havings struggled with this myself when I was younger, there are two statements that operate under false assumptions in this article.
LDS says that you "can be gay but can't act on those feeling""And I want every boy, regardless of sexual orientation, to be able to participate in the scouting program."These statements operate under the premise that you can be "Gay" just like you can be black or white, male or female, etc. Gay, contrary to popular cultural belief is NOT a state that one is, but a mindset one operates under.

Now, Christian's have been quick to call it a choice, which in essence it is, but it's a choice in the same way that alcoholism or addiction is a choice. It's a result of mindsets and decisions, but not a direct choice. Nobody says: "I think I'l…

Repentance ReDefined

RepentanceRepent! How often have I heard that word in my Christian walk. From the time I was old enough to talk I've heard about repent, repenting, repentance, etc. We see in the message of John the Baptist and Peter the idea that you should repent and baptised for the remittance of sins. Then through the religious dark and middle ages we see priests bringing for penances (payment for sin) and we see them literally beating themselves in sorrow for their sin. It's even made fun of in this clip from Monty Python's "The Holy Grail":



Unfortunately not only is the World full of this kind of repentance, not only is religion full of it, the modern Christian Church is full of it too. No, we don't walk around beating ourselves, not physically anyway. We do however walk around "feeling bad" about our sin. Or we get this idea that repentance means to feel bad about our sin. No doubt when you look up the word online that definition is further entrenched in our m…

Tithe: A study

TITHESimply put tithe is 10%. The key verse to look at when discussing the tithe is Malachi 3:8-12. God says here that not tithing is equal to robbing God. It is interesting to note that this is the only place in the bible God offers man a test or trial of his goodness. Go ahead, God says, test me… try me out… see if I’m faithful to my Word. God knows that money is tied to core matters of the heart. Jesus said that where your treasure is, your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:21 and Luke 12:34) ~Gross VS Net~What about this 10%? Is that gross or net? Malachi also answers this for us. Bring in the WHOLE tithe. Deut. 14:22 tells us to tithe on all your increase. All means All and that’s All All means.  For a moment consider what you are really asking in this question. Should I give God 10% of the money I made before or after the government took their cut, and I sent some to my 401K, and I paid for medical deductions, etc etc… Does the government come first or does God? If God is first, th…

2013

As I posted in my N2 Good Success blog, 2013 is now here. It's time to evaluate what I want for myself, for this blog and what I want for those of you who may come accross it from time to time. This was always intended to be my bible study blog first and foremost. It should be the place where I write my daily ponderings, church notes, bible studies, etc. I'd like to dedicate to posting daily here at least my morning readings from M-F... But alas, I find I work two jobs and barely have time to brush my teeth each morning and night. I have been having to push time into the Word by leaving early to have it in the car, or on a break at work... That is not good, as if you are too busy for the Word you are too busy!



I need to be in the Word Day AND Night, not either or. So I'm praying about getting back to ONE job, MORE than enough, TAILOR FIT! A few decisions about 2013 posts:

2013

A new year has come. As I look into 2013 I am faced with themes. I've been hearing over and over about diligence, faithfulness, action. I came accross a quote today I just had to share:

"Vision is not enough. It must be combined with venture. It is not enough to stare up the steps, we must step up the stairs."
So I ask myself... what staircases have I been staring at, talking about, talking around... etc... This blog, THE blogsphere in general is one of those staircases. I haven't had time, I still don't. I don't know how much follow through I can dedicate myself to. But this is what I've decided. If and when I do follow through, and begin the slow ascent up the stairs it should be according to the following.
