  1. I like finding a middle ground. It's interesting to tell LGBT proponents "I am okay with your getting married….just not in my church". 😉 Their initial smile turns to anger.

  2. Find God creepy sometimes? Never ever see him with my eyes and he has possession of my life. I gave it to him. Is there anything in it for my needs and issues? Clearly to serve God holds certain promises. Here I stand, still solitary in all my endeavors. Something is amiss. Almighty God does not lie. Man will lie but not God. He spared my soul so that must be enough I suppose. Really very sad. Help!

  3. Dear brother.
    Wonderful explanation about marriage and purpose of the sacredness of marriage and the relationship between man and woman
    Let us pray to God to correct those who practice homosexuality- a practice against the nature' s law and God's law

  4. Matthew 24:4-9 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
    For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
    And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
    For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
    All these are the beginning of sorrows.
    Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.

    We're not promised tomorrow. Pray for every Nation and all our enemies. Consider our faith in Jesus Christ. Jesus will be coming soon. Are we truly ready if we didn't wake up in the morning? Why not do today, this very minute what we're not promised tomorrow, accept Jesus Christ in heart and life.

  5. It is not necessary to live in chains of oppression, just because an ancient Canaanite god of war deemed something illegal or immoral over 5, 000 years ago. This deity known as Jehovah and sometimes as Yahweh is an evil and vengeful deity. Humanity does not need to rely upon external value systems or laws to illustrate what is right. One need only observe a behavior and it's consequences to judge its merit as a healthy or lawful action. If you are LGBTQ, embrace who you are, accept your own natural traits and qualities and forge ahead on the path of learning to love yourself and others. There is no reason to live your life out in perpetual hunger for a mate who can love and cherish you for who you are. To those who would oppress others and tell them that they cannot love or marry someone of their same gender, you stand in the darkness of a bygone era of ignorance and repression. The backward people of this world will never prevail, this world is changing even now. Look around you, everyday there are changes.

  6. The Christian view??? Since the Word of God is fact and God does not hold a 'view' so called, then if what we say is based solely on the Word of God, then is not a view but a fact.

  7. I might be getting something wrong because some of the context of Ravi's speech is missing, but he doesn't seem to understand about the laws is that they deal with actions (including discrimination as an action). I don't get why he goes on about autonomous culture either. In the realm of personal beliefs we do wish to give people the right to think what they want. But because we rightly seek to restrict various actions and actions often follow so quickly upon beliefs, beliefs might be seen as being implicated in the law. But there is neither any way to avoid this nor is it the fault of the law itself.

  8. This guy never addresses the fact that homosexuals in a committed relationship actually do meet the requirements for the four types of love described in Greek. He's assuming homosexuality is a lascivious 'lifestyle' rather than an orientation (a concept not known in the time of the biblical authors, hence what they say the way they say it) as basic as that as heterosexuality. The standard responses to this fact about comparison with harmful behaviors such as alcoholism don't work for the same reason, that is, the latter are to a fair degree behaviorally based and can be changed through efficient intervention. The utilitarian arguments about how allowing homosexuals to marry will harm society don't pan out either because the institution of marriage has been suffering for a variety of reasons long before homosexuality became an issue, and the supposed harm to any child the couple might raise pales in consideration to the moral harm represented by depriving such people of the legal recognition of marriage. Finally, Ravi doesn't tell you that Christians and every other religious group have been reinterpreting their own scriptures all through out history. Christianity in particular has no right to complain about new understandings of how the world works requiring adjustments in biblical interpretation because Christianity radically reinterprets the Jewish scriptures in light of the life and works of the 1st century Jesus of Nazareth, even as it still insists that those Jewish scriptures are sacred.

  9. Are we to assume then that any man or woman who feels zero attraction to the opposite sex is actually acting out of a wilful disregard for Christian scripture ? I don't see how one could believe otherwise, since if God is the first cause of everything there is, he would also be the creator of homosexual people.

    But I personally hate the taste of marzipan. If it was ordained by scripture that everybody should eat marzipan, it wouldn't change the fact that I hate the taste and feel awful at having to eat it. Why would God do that to me ?! It certainly isn't the result of anything I've done, it's just a fact about who I am – it's how I was born.

    It seems a silly analogy, but I am completely sincere about this, since I really don't think homosexuals are responsible for the way they feel about the opposite sex ; for whatever reason – perhaps genetics, perhaps not – they're born that way.

  10. Never heard this man but I am impreesed, I always knew there had to be a reason for so many cultures of people now I know. God made each on perfectly

  11. My follow-up question is this:
    If we live in an autonomous culture where we choose who we love, where do you stand on everyone getting to vote on whether or not gay marriage can be legal and accepted? And if presented with a gay marriage ballot, would you check yes to gay marriage or no?

  12. Here's a thought: what if, when we die, we don't move up to heaven but we simply rot in the ground with no conscious? It's a lot more realistic than coming back to life as another person…

  13. All Prophets of God are Muslims

    The Bible says in Genesis 17:3 Abraham PBUH fell on his face & prayed to God.
    Numbers 14:5, Numbers 20:6 Moses and Aaron PBUT fell on their faces & prayed to God.
    Joshua 5:14, Joshua 7:6 Joshua fell on his face & prayed to God.
    Matthew 26:39 JESUS CHRIST PBUH fell on his face and prayed to God.

    Now I'm asking, is it the Christian or the Muslims that fell on their faces while praying to God?

  14. When did Christians begin to stand against racism? That's some new stuff. And if they are against racism (a claim for which there is literally no evidence), such a stance cannot be attributed to the religion because they haven't historically been against such things.

  15. I would suggest to Ravi Zacharias that he is right at the end when he says we can make errors. As thorough as his argument is and softly but firmly stated, he does not prove that gay love can't be sacred and I would say that the four aspects of love can be part of any relationship that has God as its center. I would also gently remind him that if Christianity had been against racism as he says it is, the history of America and Europe would have been less racist and imperialistic. It is certainly well known that both sides of the slavery issue in America used the Bible to support their own views. I do, however, appreciate his love ethic towards those who disagree with him.

  16. Marriage is definitely not the most sacred bond….. there is nothing on the Bible that says that marriage is a sacred institution….

    Nice stretch ?‍♂️ tho
