VA House Democrats Storm Out As Black Pastor Prays Against Abortion and Gay Marriage
quote:

Virginia state Democrats on Tuesday stormed out of the House chamber after a local black minister led the body in an opening prayer that openly and strongly condemned abortion and gay marriage.

Rev. Robert M. Grant Jr., who pastors The Father’s Way Church in Warrenton, used his few moments at the microphone addressing the newly Democrat-controlled House of Delegates to decry abortion, advocate for traditional marriage, and warn against God’s wrath if the state legislature goes against Biblical principles.

“I pray that you may understand that all life is precious and worthy of a chance to be born. God is the giver of life and people have no right or authority to take life. The unborn have rights and those rights need to be protected. They should never be denied the right to exist, the right to develop or the right to have a family,” he said from the podium.

“The word of God has given us a warning: woe to anyone who harms an innocent child," he added, telling state lawmakers that “every one of you sitting here today can guarantee these rights to these little innocent children of Virginia."

“Please do not ignore their little voices. I pray for a heart change today, and may the Lord God have mercy upon this leadership,” he went on.

Grant then switched to gay marriage.

“We should never rewrite what God has declared,” he continued, praying that the state would “always protect the biblical definition of marriage” between one man and one woman.

Except all the different editions of the Bible, all written in non-original languages, all of which was originally compiled by man.

So there's a Bible version out there which is pro abortion and pro gay marriage? Which one is that?

The nervous look on their faces then abruptly ending his prayer for the pledge (as if they love this country) is priceless.

Freedom of speech unless it goes against our beliefs!!

It's always obvious when the person least educated on the Bible joins the conversation.

Sounds like you don't understand the difference between translation and transmission.

Go look up some Dr. James White youtube videos on the subject. He's pretty good and boiling it down for people like yourself who are hostile to the truth.

I mean, he's not wrong.

You don't have the originals. Different groups have compiled different sets of books for their Bible. Yadda yadda yadda...

That said, "progressive Christians" claiming that the Bible is pro abortion and pro gay marriage are going off of what they wish the Bible said, not what it actually says. It's pathetic. Either abide by Biblical standards or leave the religion.

thats a mic drop if i've ever heard one.

But he is. His response was specific to the quote: "We should never rewrite what God has declared".

The implication is that we have rewritten what God has declared. We (collectively) haven't.

quote:

You don't have the originals.
We don't have the original manuscripts but we can have confidence through the abundance of manuscript evidence that we do, in fact, have the original words.

quote:

Different groups have compiled different sets of books for their Bible.
True, but that's an issue of organization rather than not having the true, unaltered word of God. I'd argue that others like the Roman Catholics who include non-inspired books as canonical have added to the word of God, but even so, they still have the word of God, but the additions are obvious and clear.
