Churches must declare truth

The Old Testament puts forth, “And if a man lie with mankind, as with womankind, both of them have committed abomination: They shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”

Romans 1:24: “Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.”

New Living Translation (Roman 1:27) reads: “And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.”

So, knowing homosexuals will suffer within themselves the penalty they deserve, do we stand by and watch these people destroy themselves? Most are unable to get free from the bondage Satan has placed them under by themselves.

With all the world proclaiming that we must accept the lifestyle of the homosexuals, the church must declare the truth. With love and compassion, we must speak the truth. And the truth is that homosexuality has been, is now, and always will be a sin and an abomination in the sight of God.

In both the Old and New Testament, from the mount of Sinai to the pen of Paul, scripture makes it plain that homosexuals will not be in heaven.

Are we now just bouncing to space?

I would like to talk about a new trampoline design. But first a little background.

The space program was started by President Kennedy and destroyed by the present administration. It started with nothing and succeeded in landing Americans on the moon. We became quite competent in sending vehicles into space to build and maintain the space lab. Now it’s called ISS (International Space Station), and it zooms blissfully along with a crew of six at 17,100 miles per hour at an average height of 220 miles above Mother Earth.

Thanks to you-know-who, we (the taxpayers) are going to pay Russia $458 million for six trips to our lab.

Now, back to the trampoline redesign. Due to minor sanctions imposed by the president, the Russian big shot in charge of rockets has declared the USA will have to use a trampoline to get our people on and off of the ISS. Now is here where I have a problem.

Back in the good old days when the space shuttle was our transportation, it flew 135 missions from 1981 to 2011 with a typical average pay load 50,0000 pounds.

Come on, help me out here. How do you design a trampoline to shove 50,000 pounds of supplies and people 220 miles up to the ISS?
