    in this time of lent, one thing that im pondering on . what would get you to do something like jesus did when he got mad and turned the tables upside down calling them names. now during his life he always preached peace, but got so annoyed it enflamed him to react this way.
    ive been angered at some priests and some christians that ive known, but have not shown it. i have not seen two male priests kiss or known any who have been pedos, so i can not know what i would do if this happened within my church.
    is there anything that you would find totaly sick to go the same way.

    Christ also leveled the worst insults on the Pharisees and they were similar to much of Christianity today. They were selfish, money-hungry, uncharitable and twisted the law to suit their own needs.

    Anything that goes against the teachings of Christ should make a follower of Christ angry enough to do or say something about it. If you see wrongs being committed in a church and you turn a blind eye, then you are guilty of complacency.

    It doesn't need to teach that two males or females being in a relationship is "God's love" any more than enjoying chocolate biscuits is "God's love". It should just stop demonising them. What two consenting adults do in their own private lives is neither my, yours, the church's, or anyone else's concern other than the same two consenting adults.

    It's the year 2012 not 1012.

    It's still disgusting in God's eyes. That's the point.

    Jesus controlled his anger when they assaulted him and verbally abused him. However, when his flock was being sent the wrong direction, whether it be in the form of its spiritual leaders being morally bankrupt, or buying and selling in the temple that took away from worship, then he kinda lost his filter.

    If you read the teachings of Christ and understand his mind then you would know what to tolerate and what not to.

    so you put a homosexual in the same category as a paedophile in terms of what you find sick? you are one sick puppy.

    Then let God feel disgusted. Even you have the right to feel disgusted (just don't be surprised if other people find your disgust, disgusting). But when you start throwing tables around, you are going beyond disgust, and trying to dictate.

    Are you also disgusted, and start over turning tables, when you see a woman in Church who hasn't covered her hair?
