Subject: RE: BS: Fred Phelps & 'God hates fags' organisation
News Flash... Mudcatters hate God!!! Read the above! Yup, that's about as fallacious as saying Christians hate "fags". I keep using the term "fag" but I put it in quotes because it is NOT the term I use. It's the term as quoted by Tom Hamiltion. I'd venture to say that some Mudcatters DO hate God. Do they all? I, for one, don't. Some Mudcatters may hate homosexuals. I, for one, don't. And I resent people trying to color myself and other Cristians with the broad brush. It's dishonest.

Did God create pigs, mice and frogs? I would say so. According to the Jewish Torah they are unclean animls and/or abominations! Why? I don't know. It was a prohibition given to the Jews at the time when the Laws were handed down. Why do I have to drive at 55mph on roads that were once considered safe at 65 mph? God only knows and it's a real struggle for me to keep it at 55 (mainly because I'm blocking traffic!). In Christian theology only one was ever able to live a life without sin. To quote Leonard Cohen, "Only drowning men can see Him..." I believe in God's Grace because that's the only way I'm gonna make it. I live my life in this world in a body of death ("it is appointed unto Man once to die" and "the wages of sin is death"). The verdict was in and the sentence passed in the Beginning. Graveyards everywhere give mute testimony to the truth of that statement. I threw myself on the mercy of the Court and received a pardon from ALL my sins. Man, what a release! I'm free spiritually and I no longer HAVE to obey the desires of the flesh whatever they may be. As I quoted above "Whatsoever is not of faith is sin."   I acknowledge God and seek His guidance and trust that He is establishing the path I take. If I misstep He lets me know and He keeps letting me know until I get back on the road He wants me on. OK, have some fun with that!
