    I agree … man was created first and given the responsibility to lead. Scripture teaches that first the man was created by a direct divine act of creation and given the responsibility to lead; subsequently, the woman was created by God from the man (Gen 2:5–9) and for the man (Gen 2:18–20).

    in the past three weeks i’ve lost two long time friends due to my “homophobia” 😔 i just said “i love you, but because of what the bible says about homosexuality, i cannot celebrate that aspect of your life.” agree to disagree, right? no you’re labeled as unloving and judgmental. if they don’t even believe in God, why do they care what He has to say about their sexual conduct or my personal convictions? Romans 2:14,15 I guess. I struggle not to be hurt by their accusations but it is hard when I know my intentions & they are blind.

    i think it is depressing listening to the lost debate a Christian. The atheist has really nothing to say when it comes to morality. Its always based on their opinion and you try to push them for a standard not based on man or society and their doctrine won't let them.

    If you were to die today are you 100% sure that you can go to heaven? First, we have to realize that we all have sinned against God who is Holy, so He can’t let one sin in heaven, so He punishes sin with eternal hell. (Revelation 20:15  And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire / Romans 3:23  For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God). One sin is enough to make us  sinners as one crime is enough to make us  murderers, so we all have to realize that we are  sinners who deserve hell. The good news is that there is a solution to escape hell and that is Jesus Christ, the only mediator between us and The Father, (who is God and man in the same time – Philippians 2:6,7  Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:   7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men) and what He did so we can go to heaven. (John 3:16  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.) (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures) (Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.) (Romans 3:24-26 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus; Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus..). So to get saved by Jesus Christ, right now, you have to believe from the heart ONLY on Jesus shed blood at the cross for the cleansing of sins, on His death for all your sins(past, present, future), burial and resurrection the third day, in Him as your personal saviour. You have to TRUST, that His sacrifice, His blood is sufficient to save you. A lot of people think that to get to heaven you have to not sin, do good works, get baptized, go to church, be catholic, etc but this is what God has to say about our works (Isaiah 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away). If salvation is by our works then why did Jesus had to die on the cross? It is clear that salvation is only through trusting on Jesus Christ, on His sacrifice, His blood.

    also one of the biggest things here, is to just know who you are in Christ… to know Father God has got you safe under His hand. If you don't know this, the enemy will of course keep stealing your confidence once you stand up for your faith….
