"Thus we may see in outline — notice onlookers how the objectors protest ever so loudly when a detailed exposition is either developed or linked — why it is that Judaeo-Christian redemptive theism is a solid ground for morality. We also see why pagan and neopagan altenatives and skeptical evolutionary materialistic — which last, on the testimony of Plato in the Laws Bk X, go back to 400+ BC and men like Alcibiades — alternatives are inherently amoral, thus the pattern of moral disintegration of Rom 1:
Rom 1:19 . . . what can be known about God is plain to [men],42 because God has made it plain to them. 1:20 For since the creation of the world his invisible attributes – his eternal power and divine nature – have been clearly seen, because they are understood through what has been made. So people43 are without excuse. 1:21 For although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God or give him thanks, but they became futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts44 were darkened. 1:22 Although they claimed45 to be wise, they became fools 1:23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for an image resembling mortal human beings46 or birds or four-footed animals47 or reptiles. [whether put up as Egyptian or Babylonian-Syrian-Canaanite Graeco-Roman gods in temples and pantheons, or as purported ancestral life forms in museums makes but little difference . . . ]
1:24 Therefore God gave them over48 in the desires of their hearts to impurity, to dishonor49 their bodies among themselves.50 1:25 They51 exchanged the truth of God for a lie52 and worshiped and served the creation53 rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
1:26 For this reason God gave them over to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged the natural sexual relations for unnatural ones,54 1:27 and likewise the men also abandoned natural relations with women55 and were inflamed in their passions56 for one another. Men57 committed shameless acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
1:28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God,58 God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what should not be done.59 1:29 They are filled60 with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, malice. They are rife with61 envy, murder, strife, deceit, hostility. They are gossips, 1:30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, contrivers of all sorts of evil, disobedient to parents, 1:31 senseless, covenant-breakers,62 heartless, ruthless. 1:32 Although they fully know63 God’s righteous decree that those who practice such things deserve to die,64 they not only do them but also approve of those who practice them.
resemblance ot the trends of our dying civlisation arte NOT coincidental.
How sharp a contrast do we have in the One who died for our sins on a cros, was buried, and rose triumphant with 500+ witnesses and then ascended and poured out he Spirit in power, sot hat millions — including many of our neighbours have met God in the (very Middle Eastern, ROK: we’se be talking the Number One Jew here . . . !) face of Jesus!
Sounds to me like gordo's kids, and any other kids who are or may be disobedient to their 'christian' parents, are in grave danger.
Has anyone ever seen or heard of a kid who is NEVER disobedient to their parents?
gordo's words above are from this page, which contains a lot of very revealing things about him:
His user name there is Dictionary.
Based on some of the words he's using, he deserves to die too, since they fit him to a T:
futile in their thoughts and their senseless hearts were darkened
Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
exchanged the truth for a lie
filled with every kind of unrighteousness, wickedness, covetousness, malice
rife with envy, strife, deceit, hostility
gossips, slanderers, insolent, arrogant, boastful, contrivers of all sorts of evil, senseless, covenant-breakers, heartless, ruthless
And "murder" may apply too, especially if or when he kills his kids or anyone else's kids for being disobedient. Maybe he already has.
I guess his parents didn't kill him because he is perfect and infallible and has NEVER been disobedient to them. LOL
