My name is Micheal and I live in the United States although sometimes I don't feel like I live in the United States. I know I live on the land parcel claimed by the Government of the United States but I sometimes don't feel I have the liberties provided by the decrees of the Constitution of the United States because I am harrassed by people who feel they have some kind of authority from God to condemn me for my sins through the particular persons perceptions of the biblical hand downs from generations of what is biblical acceptable behavior or geographical liberty constraints and social restraints from these handed down perceptions and the political extremists grasping for anything to support their agenda fot the political right agenda and they begin quoting the scriptures to support only their agenda.
Example: they will state the biblical occurence of Sodom and Gomorah being destroyed by God because of the inhabitants practicing sodomy but, (they now think they have a right to destroy people with this particular delectation that is associated with Sodom and Gomorrah) they fail to mention or offer explanation, the destruction of the entire inhabitants of the earth with the flood wherein only 8 souls were saved, those of Noah's family, and one wonders why were all these folks drowned. Nothing states they all were sodomites or fornicators, or slave owners or of any particular sin but as it states per the King James Version ( and at this I am sure some will "Squint at the nat and swallow the camel ) Genesis 6:5 "And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually".
It is not anyone's job to condemn sinners, Christ died for the wicked and we are to love sinners of which we all are.
