  1. We had a gay guy come to our church about a year and a half ago. God filled him with the Holy Spirit evident by the speaking of other tongues. He was baptized in Jesus name and to this day hasn't wanted another man. He says he was healed.
  2. I have no TRU and no Target just Kmart(sucks) and Wal-Mart. The last set my WM put out was sentinel series(other than the wm wave) Good thing I only want var goblin
  3. I like the scult and think it looks like Routh. I've been trying to decide if I should buy the bigger figures or not...so many figures so little money.
  4. Went one day and saw the display got Cap Brit and Warbird. Went back the next day and got reg Sentry. Found out they were hard to find and went back the next day...The display and all the figs were gone.
  5. As one of the earlier posters said, these sins are not portrayed as good or normal in comics, movies or TV. The point is that many Christians see homosexuality as a sin and they don't like seeing it portrayed as normal. What's happened is several of us are arguing the specifics and intent of the Bible. I, like you, feel that it should be a non-issue, but many people feel differently and that's why it is an issue. In fact, many Christians ignore things that are clearly listed as sins in the Bible. Gluttony is obviously not a big concern because I see many fat people at church, but I believe that it is listed as one the seven deadly sins. Sodomy among straight Christians is also ignored, but I guarantee that most engage in oral sex with their spouses and many probably engage in anal sex from time to time - both are considered sodomy. Maybe it’s ignored because your sexual activity is nobody’s business – that is unless it’s gay sexual activity – then it matters. Every Christian lies and that is obviously forbidden. All sins are equal in God's eyes, but many Christians insist on making the sin of homosexuality a big issue. Personally, as a Christian, I think the passages condemning homosexuality are speaking more about lust than the act itself. Back in the day, it's unlikely that they could not conceive of a homosexual relationship as we think of them today so it was assumed that the act was one of sexual depravity, which is forbidden in the Bible in any form. Don't forget it is also a sin to judge others. So, for those who have a problem with homosexuality and think it is a sin, let the big man judge them in whether or not being gay is a sin rather than really caring about it. Man cannot and should not judge. But the Holy Bible can and does. Everyone has an opinion and typing it on a message board isn't going to convince someone to change theirs. This will just continue to go in circles. FINAL THOUGHT: I will not purchase any comics(I dont anyways) or figures of any characters that are portrayed to be gay. That is my choice. If you don't like it oh well...
  6. My first Marvel figure was the ML 1 Captain America.
  7. Where in the Bible does it forbid a homosexual relationship or gay marriage for that matter? I know that Leviticus mentions gay sex, but it says nothing of a relationship. Also, Solomon is a poor example as he was a polygamist (so was David) - not exactly one man, one woman. Additionally, if you read the entire book of Leviticus, it also restricts sexual intercourse with a menstruating woman, sowing the seeds of two different crops in the same field, eating rare meat, reaping all of the crops in a field, getting tattooed, eating meat of cloven-hoofed animals, eating shellfish, shaving, or even wearing clothing of different fibers. If you continue on in Leviticus (Chapter 20), the code says that the following people should be put to death: anyone who worships Molech (Ba’al, the sacred bull), anyone that curses his father or mother, anyone who commits adultery, anyone who commits an act of incest, engages in bestiality, or that is a witch. Chapter 21 says that prostitutes should be burned. Do you also adhere to these principals and the other tenants of the Old Testament's Holiness code? The Bible and the Pope (if you are Catholic) also expressly forbid sodomy, which includes homo and hetero anal and ORAL sex. I’m certain that no Christian in this country engages in oral sex. I’m really not trying to be a jerk (well maybe a little), but I’m pointing out that the Bible restricts a lot of things that are common practice among Christians. Using one verse out of context as justification for damnation of a group of people who choose to be gay (as much as a straight person chooses to be attracted to someone with red hair, black skin or a big ‘ol butt) is silly. Also, I’m a practicing Christian who regularly attends a wonderful church with my wife and two young boys. I don’t think Jesus would exclude homosexuals from the church, even practicing ones. Frankly, straight people have hurt families and the institution of marriage more than any gay couple ever could. Look we could argue this all day. None of those other things are brought out again in the new testament except Homosexuality in the book of Romans. And to father Wagner in first Samuel it is speaking of Jonathan giving his armor to David not stripping naked for him. Read the New American Standard Version it puts it in english for you. And in Daniel ????????
  8. Father Wagner I found it. Leviticus 18:22-24 KJV 22)Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination. 23)Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24)Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you. Now yes I believe homosexuality is wrong. Yes I have friends that are homosexual. I do not look down on someone because they are gay. I am a christian and I believe you should treat all men equal. But that said I will not bring that stuff in my house. I have the Young Avengers set on layaway and now that I know this I will turn it back when I get the lay away out. I am just giving my opinion and gave scripture to show where my belief comes from.
  9. Homosexuality is a sickness thats my opinion. And if your so familiar with the bible where is the scripture found that compares homesexuality with sleeping with animals? And when it says "men with men working that which is unseemly " What is that saying Also God destroyed soddom and Gammora(dont know the spelling) Because of homosexuality and yes other things. It even talked of the men trying to get inside to the angel because he was so attractive.
  10. Romans 1:26-27 KJV For this cause God gave them up unto VILE affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is agains nature. And likewise also men leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is UNSEEMLY and recieving in themselves that recompence of their ERROR which was meet.
