This site has received a more than ordinary amount of discussion. I appreciate the participation from every one. I’ve always welcomed any thoughts on any issue as this has always been an open forum. We are blessed to have free speech.
I must note that the personal, vulgar attacks on me are acceptable, I am an elected official. I’m disappointed in those that cast vile, mean spirited attacks on my wife and children.
This evidence clearly indicates a hatred for God; proving Romans 1:21 to be true: “For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.”
As commanded by Christ in Matthew 5 (“I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,”) we are to pray for our enemies. We are doing just that. I beg you to consider what God says about his Son in Colossians 1: “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross. Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation— if you continue in your faith, established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.”
