Why do some people want the church to change and accept things that are not Biblical but are changing in society? Wouldn't that change God?

Report as

Because the bible is not relevant to today....

Old Testament. Jesus is the truth and the light. He says it doesn't matter what goes in your mouth but what comes from your heart. Your heart sounds bitter and angry with God. I am sorry to hear that.

God is not a progressive. God has always been the same from the beginning, now and forever. Thank God for that.

Jesus fulfilled that which was old with His death and resurrection. We no longer need to do these multiple rules of old. Just believe and salvation is yours. He paid the price with His blood and body. May God Bless you.

Dear bib... What happened to the great commission: go ye into all the world , preach the gospel, baptising them in the name of the Father, Son , and Holy Spirit!
IF WE DONT GO..... It only takes one generation to become a pagan nation!
WE MUST PASS IT ON.
We are not just tourist- along for the ride!

My heart doesn't sound like anything buddy... It is just the truth... There is no jesus here making miracles... There haven't been any giant floods or men parting water... No one gets cured from disease or blindness by praying...

Change what?
And assuming you believe there is a god, then one cannot change him.

Exactly. If you believe then you know a god doesn't change.

Read a comment you wrote somewhere... YOU are judgmental sir. These changes are for GOOD, not bad.
Report as
God does not change to your liking. I believe in God even when I may think I know better He knows best not me or you.
Report as
I follow what God says. I save judgement for Him. I do know right from wrong through His teaching. I truly want others to be saved too before its too late. God gives that job to all Christians. Not judging but speaking God's truth.

I agree. I'm not a catholic but it just fries me when I hear people say why is the Catholic Church that way about abortion, gay marriage, etc. WHY? It's their beliefs, they don't exactly hide that fact. No one is being forced to be a Catholic or any other denomination.

The true purpose of a church (or should be) is to help people. God (whoever you perceive him/her/it to be) doesn't need any help. It's GOD! Churches formed two thousand years ago were to help people in that society. We don't live in that society any more. Any church that isn't helping its members will die out; members will leave it.

God is not who you want Him to be. He is the Great I Am. He doesn't change. If the church dies out it is because people have turned away from Him. He has not abandoned you.
Report as
Your description of the Church is not what Jesus says. You could always start your own church and have people worship like you want. Good luck.
Report as
Did I say he was who I want him to be? Although I DO think there is the possibility of more than one. Why would the Bible mention "no other god before me" if there were no other gods? And churches DO die out, when their members turn away because they aren't getting what they need.
And I never said that god, ANY god, abandons people.

Re your second remark, not a Christian here. Celtic Pagan and proud of it, as you are of your beliefs, as all people should be proud of their beliefs.
Report as
Other Gods that God talks about are not really Gods just Gods that some humans worship. Like Baal that is told in the Bible.

God's laws never change. If we need revelation for our day, he has provided a living prophet to warn us or tell us the things we need to be aware of. As far as changing...he doesn't and never will

I think some people feel that the Bible isnt relavent in todays world!
If they would only read the great stories! They are there to teach us . The sin is the same: murder/ adultry/ greed/ coveting/. It still shows that Human nature sins. And that a Good God will forgive anysin but unbelief and unrepenting!
And God is a just God who WILL punish the unrighteous/wicked/unrepentant
Sinner! IN HIS TIME!

This has been going on for years bigred. If they didn't change, we'd still be burning people for being heretics or witches. And the churches realize that if they don't pander to the people they are supposed to serve... their coffers are empty.

But God doesn't change. We do these things at our own peril.

So were they wrong to stop burning the heretics and witches? If you claim that they were ignorant of god's true word... how do Christians know today then that they truly understand...?

I think it's because people want to pass themselves off as Christians but they don't want to have to make the life-style changes that they'd have to to be real Christians. It's so inconvenient to have to really live their lives with all those silly, irrelevant rules and why shouldn't a person that wants to cohabitate with their same-sex partner, have a baby out of wedlock, go get matching tattoos and watch porn together still be considered a Christian?

Because they don't understand that religious Doctrine is constant! It does not move with the shifting sands! It's kind of like the " revisionist history crusade " that the USA is experiencing these days! People are trying to change the fact that The USA was founded on a belief in God, just because eliminating God is the popular thing these days!

Absolutely true. So sad. Communists hate religion because it interferes with them being the ultimate power. I believe we are currently under communism and its evils.

This is a good example of a question I answered recently about the difference between fact and truth. Facts are just widely accepted versions of the truth.

I don't understand why they'd want the Bible to change. If God wanted it that way, it would have been written that way. Who's to go and change the Bible how they want? No one...

There are many interpretations of the bible and it would be impossible to try to change rules to fit all those interpretations. So we must decide for ourselves what is right and true and best for our people. This is why god gave us free will and does not interfere with that.

God remains the same. no matter if the bible is not there, is changed, is illegal to own one, or is burned, God prevails through all things, do not be afraid.

Religion has been under the gun a lot recently. I think because it has group morals and codes that should be followed. People that dont follow this will try to press those rules away and say they are wrong because it shows their true colors. They dont like that. They will try to change religion in any way possible.
