Matthew Henry's Luke Chapter 17 Bible commentary...
To avoid offences, To pray for increase of faith, Humility taught.11-19. Ten lepers cleansed. (1-10) Christ's kingdom. (20-37)1-10 It is no abatement of their guilt by whom an offence comes, nor will it lessen their punishment that offences will come. Faith in God's pardoning mercy, will enable us to get over the greatest difficulties in the way of forgiving our brethren. As with God nothing is impossible, so all things are possible to him that can believe. Our Lord showed his disciples their need of deep humility. The Lord has such a property in every creature, as no man can have in another; he cannot be in debt to them for their services, nor do they deserve any return from him.
11-19 A sense of our spiritual leprosy should make us very humble whenever we draw near to Christ. It is enough to refer ourselves to the compassions of Christ, for they fail not. We may look for God to meet us with mercy, when we are found in the way of obedience. Only one of those who were healed returned to give thanks. It becomes us, like him, to be very humble in thanksgivings, as well as in prayers. Christ noticed the one who thus distinguished himself, he was a Samaritan. The others only got the outward cure, he alone got the spiritual blessing.
20-37 The kingdom of God was among the Jews, or rather within some of them. It was a spiritual kingdom, set up in the heart by the power of Divine grace. Observe how it had been with sinners formerly, and in what state the judgments of God, which they had been warned of, found them. Here is shown what a dreadful surprise this destruction will be to the secure and sensual. Thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. When Christ came to destroy the Jewish nation by the Roman armies, that nation was found in such a state of false security as is here spoken of. In like manner, when Jesus Christ shall come to judge the world, sinners will be found altogether regardless; for in like manner the sinners of every age go on securely in their evil ways, and remember not their latter end. But wherever the wicked are, who are marked for eternal ruin, they shall be found by the judgments of God.

It just confirms to me that Jesus was aware that they'll be issues of homosexuality in the latter day's being brought to light, and that if a homosexual person or persons believe in the salvation of the blood of Jesus Christ they too will be saved.

you must lose your life of this world, to gain the inheritance of a godly life, and the benefit of the keeping power of "GOD".

I believe (and hope) that this indicates a period of economic stability at the time of a pre-tribulation rapture. An economic collapse will follow quickly. Famines precede the Son of Man arriving in a cloud (Matthew 24:30, Mark 12:26, Luke 21:27) and of course the Battle of Armageddon which precedes the "Second Coming" will be a period of worldwide war, chaos, and wrath.

Names of Lot's wife and Job's wife are not mentioned in the Holy Scriptures.
Timothy Wayne George's Luke Chapter 17 comment about verse 4 on 1/25/2013, 9:48pm...
The Key is if your brother sins seven times in a day, and returns with a repentant heart, you shall forgive him. Jesus told Peter in Matthew 18 that you are to forgive your brother seventy times seven. To forgive is to cast away, in the depths of the ocean, and don't fish for the sin anymore. Just as when God forgives, He does not remember the sin anymore. Just as if you never sinned. So let all bitterness, wrath, and malice be put away from you. Be ye kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving one another, just as God has forgiven you in Christ Jesus.
