"But the anointing (the Holy Spirit) you received from Him abides in you, and you need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teaches you about all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it has taught you, you shall abide (remain) in Him." 1st John 2:27 Truth is in Jesus. His word is truth ("Sanctify them thru the truth; Your word is truth"- 17:17); His Spirit is truth ("But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceeds from the Father, He shall testify of Me."- John 15:26), and He, Jesus is truth ("I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man comes to the Father except by Me.- John 14:6)

Eddie, you need to born again (John 3:3) and get saved. Do you have even a clue what that means? Your religious teachings and your religious organization won't take you to eternal life. The Holy Spirit that Jesus sent from heaven (John 16:13) leads all true believers (born again by the Spirit from above) into ALL truth. The very fact you are asking these questions ("who do you believe when you learn of two diametrically opposed interpretations of a bible verse?") shows me clearly that you do not KNOW Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, you do not have His holy Spirit, and you are not born again. Apparently, you seem to be of the bunch who martyred the true saints of God hundreds of years ago, and will probably do so again before Jesus returns.

Eddie again, I perceive your question was not an honest one, and that you have an agenda- someone who already has his mind made up. For the benefit of those who are still open to receive truth: "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness; that the man of God may be perfect (mature), thoroughly fitted for every good work." 2nd Timothy 3:16-17

Gabriela: "For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus." 1st Timothy 2:5 "And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the scriptures, neither the power of God?" Mark 12:24 The religious traditions of men, and man's doctrines and teachings will not save you. If you do not abide in the truth of God's word and the doctrine of Christ, you have no salvation. Jesus didn't come to condemn the world. Those who reject Him and His word are ALREADY under God's wrath and condemnation.

"Then Jesus said to those Jews who had believed on Him, 'If you continue in My word, you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:31-32) The problem with our culture today is not secular humanism, or relativism, or socialism, or whatever 'ism' you wish to talk about. The problem is a back-slidden Church that has walked away from the authority of God's word, and by doing so has lost the power and freedom of God's presence to preach His truth with authority and conviction to a lost and dying world. If this culture is lost, the responsibility for it will be laid at the door step of the Church, NOWHERE else. Instead of more conferences of 'evangelicals' describing the 'problem' (with new and interesting intellectual flourishes) to other 'evangelicals' (revolving around a well-paid lecture circuit of books and appearances) what we need is some Apostle Pauls out in the streets, taking the message of God's word to the people. The church is in the midst of a total departure (apostasy)from God's word and standard. THAT's the problem.

'Beware' of what? Instead of describing what the current tilt of the Titanic is, and the what the current water temperature is of the frigid water the Titanic is slowly (or not so slowly) sinking into (cold) for those about to encounter it, how about we instead 'beware' preaching a watered-down, compromised, and highly intellectualized 'Gospel' that can't save the ones who are preaching it, much less reach sinners, caught in the tsunami of sin and deception that is engulfing this planet, for whom is supposedly is intended to reach?
With the historic and cowardly FAIL yesterday of the Supreme Court of the United States to address the issue of "gay marriage" in this country (the Supreme Court's inaction, in effect, ratifying and rubber stamping the Judicial arrogance and tyranny of a handful of lower court Federal Judges who have invalidated and ruled un-Constitutional the expressed will of millions of Americans who stated, via voter referendum and legislative action that they do NOT wish to legalize "gay marriage"), it is somewhat curious to me that Dr. Brown would choose to ignore and overlook the truly historic event that occurred yesterday (or DIDN'T occur, in this case, since it was the Supreme Court that left the field of battle and surrendered the issue without a fight), and choose instead to concentrate his concern about the "gay marriage" issue on a high school level editorial written by his local newspaper. Talk about "majoring in the minors" and "minoring in the majors"!
Roger 10-4. Also, the 'progressives' cite the Constitution (incorrectly) only when it suits their (crooked) purposes. Otherwise, they pretty much despise it.
Another Townhall columnist wrote today (more or less in the same vein as Greenberg): "While the court's liberal wing probably wanted to accept cases banning same-sex marriage in five states that have been overturned by three different federal appeals courts in recent months, the conservative majority, along with swing Justice Anthony Kennedy, apparently wished to see states resolve the issue." Absolute weasel words and double-talk. The truth of the matter is, the States DID resolve the issue, and the will of the people was over-turned by a handful of arrogant, elitist Federal Judges who chose to find a Constitutional "right" that has never existed before in history. The SOTUS, by its gutless, cowardly action and its refusal to address the #1 social issue in this country today, did NOT send the issue back down to the States to be resolved. What the Supreme Court did was rubber stamp the lower courts decision and, in effect, made "gay marriage" the law of the land. The sin of OMISSION is as damning as the sin of COMMISSION.
Cal writes (in Point #1): "While the court's liberal wing probably wanted to accept cases banning same-sex marriage in five states that have been overturned by three different federal appeals courts in recent months, the conservative majority, along with swing Justice Anthony Kennedy, apparently wished to see states resolve the issue." Absolute smooth deceptive words and double-talk. The States DID resolve the issue, Cal, and the will of the people was over-turned by arrogant, elitist Federal Judges who chose to find a Constitutional "right" that has never existed before.

"50 laboratories of democracy can discover and develop their own solutions..." What a crock of lofty, sanctimonious baloney. The lower appellate Federal courts have overturned every individual's state's initiative or legislative attempt to defend traditional marriage (one lone homosexual Federal Judge in San Francisco invalidated the votes of 8 million California voters when he declared Proposition 8 "un-Constitutional". The Supreme Court today by its cowardly inaction in effect legalized homosexual marriage nationwide. It lacked the courage to leave its "fingerprints" on a decision that will dramatically affect the future of this nation, choosing instead to let the lower courts' decisions carry the day.
