Dear Editor:

I agree with the Baptist and Methodist ministers, Jesus did not use the word "homosexual," nor did he use many other words.

As for the apostle Paul, he definitely was not on the “cutting edge” of learning and technology. In fact, he was accused of being mad for his much learning. Is it not amazing how we can just justify our sins and abominations when we in our hearts know better?

I know, let’s make all sin more acceptable. Let’s legalize prostitution, let’s cut down on alcoholism by putting alcohol legally and more conveniently in all grocery stores, let’s do away with gambling (one-armed bandits, football ticket scalping, etc.) but keep legalized lottery gambling. 

If we can sear our consciences as with a hot iron — accept, justify and rationalize all sins — and if we can get rid of the “God factor” and the Bible, then maybe we can eliminate any and all guidelines, rules, regulations, etc.

We can eliminate his, hers and their toilets. We can yank off all our clothes (too defining, too confining), we can take down all the traffic signals at all road intersections (too controlling).

Does not nature teach us that certain things are wrong?

According to 2 Timothy 3, "But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power."
