A man of God would never burn or harm a temple of any kind - regardless of religion. A true man of God would see every temple or divine mansion built to glorify THE CREATOR - as an extension of the temple closest to his home, regardless of its shape, size, or color. A man who truly recognizes and knows God can see God in all things. Truth can only be seen by those with truth in them.
Nobody can turn you into a slave unless you allow them. Nobody can make you afraid of anything, unless you allow them. Nobody can tell you to do something wrong, unless you allow them. God never created you to be a slave, man did. God never created division or set up any borders between brothers, man did. God never told you hurt or kill another, man did. Why is man your god and not the Creator?
The state of monarchy is the supremest thing upon earth: for kings are not only God's Lieutenants upon earth, and sit upon God's throne, but even by God himself they are called gods.
(James I of England, James VI of Scotland (1566-1625), British King of England and Scotland. Address, March 21, 1609, to Parliament, London. Quoted in England Under the Stuarts, ch. 4, G.M. Trevelyan (1904, rev. 1925).)
A rainbow is a sign that God will not repeat to flood the whole earth and kill off everyone who is disobedient to him, after the flood - God regretted what he did and used the rainbow to say never again the world be destroyed a world wide flood. The rainbow is a promise from God not to kill us all and every time we see a rainbow in the sky we are reminded of that promise. It is not just a sign for GLBT persons but the whole world.
“As for my father, I never knew whether he believed God was a mathematician but he certainly believed God could count and that only by picking up Gods rhythms were we able to regain power and beauty. Unlike many Presbyterians, he often used the word "beautiful.”
Jesus should teach God about forgiveness, about forgetting - Jesus should tell God as he told us- 'To love our enemies' and maybe just if) , the world won't be in this much despair. What gain is there if you love those who loves you? Now God must love the devil.
