    Wow I am not judging no one. It is the word of GOD.and it is clear. I feel so saddened that this world is in so much pain . And until this world put our LORD first it will continue to decay. LORD please show us all mercy.

    Leah, what you said is true it is God's Word period. God bless us all and in the understanding of his Word. Glory be to Jehovah in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!
  • God\'s Woman for verse 22
    Humans should have dog sense. When a male dog gets in heat, he doesn 't seek out another male. The same goes for all animals. God said in Genesis that God made them male and female. It is hard for a person in darkness to understand how to walk in light until he she comes into the knowledge of God 's truths. Matt 24 and 25, in the lake of fire, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth because people fail to heed the way of holiness. It 's wrong for single people to fornicate. Does that mean that I 'm hating fornicators? People get very defensive against truth when they are guilty and don 't want to change. Same sex relationships , God hates and will judge, as He will all forms of sins.
  • It is God 's word. The son of God Jesus died for our sins so that we may repent and be forgiven. In the Heavenly Father 's eyes, this is a abomination disgust, filthy, dirty . Whether you think it is right or wrong, it is written that God finds it to his dislike. I think you could even say he hates the thought of same sex relationships. It is my opinion. For he shall be the judge in the end. God Help Us all!
  • IThe Bible is very clear to me..Do not question the words of GOD. He said it and I believe it. Keep the faith people.

    The Bible to me seems to be a lot about, "God 's " Laws, "Jesus ' " sacrifice for us and how we are supposed to live in order to reach that everlasting life he promised if we followed his rules. Everyone has to find him for themselves, he gave us "Free Will " so you can decide for yourselves where you want to be in your after life. Some people don 't care, that 's their business. We are in this world but we don 't have to be of it. It 's about choices, I treat others as I want to be treated. We can only pray for those who we want to be saved, but they have to also pray for themselves. I may not agree with the things that man has conveniently chose to initiate in this world, but that 's what he has to deal with in the end time. Me, I want to live Eternally in one of the places that "God " has prepared for me, and I teach my children the same values and principles that I live by. We were all born into Sin, it 's when you find out the Truth, that you become free. I have to say so far this book has never lied all that it has prophesized has come true. These are the "End Day 's. Revelation is here! People had better read the writing on the proverbial wall. Whatever you believe, "Be "Blessed ".
