Bible study for Christian hypocrites

As a public service, I'm leading Wednesday-night Bible study for George Rekers, Mark Souder, and all of the other dear hearts who preach Biblically correct family values (or what they think are Biblically correct family values) and practice something else. Get out your King James Bibles, and let's go.

Matthew 7:1-5: Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam [is] in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Matthew 7:15-20: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither [can] a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Romans 2:1: Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.

1 John 3:6: Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not: whosoever sinneth hath not seen him, neither known him.

Then again, why do I bother? Everyone knows that if a Bible verse does not specifically address homosexuality, abortion, or creation, we are free to ignore rewrite interpret it.

How about "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."

Gay Patriot pointed me your way.

I'll be keeping an eye on your site here and there, maybe even engage in a little gratuitous blogger baiting.

Keep up the good work.

Some people are making a big point of the idea that the story of Jesus and the adulteress doesn't belong in the Bible. Of course, the parts that they like are still God's preserved Word. Isn't that convenient.

Well, I didn't know one could pick and choose the sin and or lesson from the Bible to ignore or accept.

What I mean is, either one accepts the Bible as the Word of God, or, one doesn't.

By the way, have you read "The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel?

And, if I remember correctly, the Bible has some serious injunctions against hypocrisy and lying.

As a side note, I'm somewhat amused when people try to claim "things have changed."

Well, no, there isn't anything new in the way of human behavior. What's changed is the material existence of mankind.

"Nothing new under the sun" as it were.

Hope your days are going well, you remain gainfully employed and find that special someone. (just guessing, don't really know if you're attached or not)
