What does the Word say?

I have not wrote anything to you about my faith or the things God has been doing in my life for a while now so I will in this post.  Ever since the Chic-fil-a made the comments they did people have been going crazy.  There are post on facebook for both sides of the fence and many people are calling them close minded and bigots.  People are wanting to kick them out of towns and off college campuses.  I cant sit back and not speak up anymore.  As someone who has lived the gay lifestyle and then gave their life to Jesus Christ I am writing this as a person who understands both sides. However how I feel and how you feel is not the issue here what Gods word says is the issue so I am going to show you a couple of verses before we go any farther, and since we are under the new covenant with I am going to stick to the New Testament of the bible to avoid any confusion.

Romans 1:26-27
 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10
 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

 It is clear according to the Word of God He did not intend for men to be with men and for women to be with women.  We car try to argue the Bible is not true but it has been proven true over and over again in science, in archeology it even proves itself true.  So we must take the Word of God for what it means, as it is read.  So if God is against homosexuality then why do people have those feelings when they did not ask to have them? The answer is the fall of man.  When Adam and Eve sinned they brought the curse of sin upon the hole earth. God did not create a world with death and cancer and murder and lies and homosexuality and greed and jealousy and smoking and drugs and drinking (the list can go on) He created the perfect world where man could fellowship with Him one on one.  Because of the sin the first Adam brought into the world we lost that perfect world and death entered in.  God gave us free choice because He WANTS us to love Him, He could have MADE us love Him and not give us free choice but do you want to be with a husband or wife that is MADE to love you? Is that real love?  God gave us His word and His instructions how how to live our life for OUR own good.  Not because He is a mean God waiting to throw lightning bolts at people.  Trust me when I say life is much better when you try to aline your life with His Word.  If you do not believe me then put it to the test.  Honestly dive in read His word and seek His face.

That being said the comments made my Chic-fil-a are biblical so what we are saying if we have an issue with them is not that we have an issue with the man the said them but the God who gave us His word.  As Americans we are always sitting back and trying to kick God out then when things come crashing down we ask " God where were you".  Well lets see we kick God out of our schools cause it might offend someone, we stay home on Sundays and dont go to church cause we are too busy we allow every other religion to have free reign in a country that God gave us and then we expect Him to be there when we want.  We let Muslims murder people over and over again and then bend over backwards to make them happy.  Jesus a King of peace is offensive but Allah is welcome.  Do you treat your friends that way?  If so how many do you really have?  How many people stick around time after time if we slap them in the face over and over again?  So why do you think God is just going to sit back and wait for us to take Him off a shelf to fix a problem for us then we put Him back on the shelf.  

I understand what its like to have same sex attraction I understand what its like living the lifestyle and I understand exactly how the gays and lesbians feel.  However we can not just pick and choose the parts of the Bible we like and not take it all.  If we do we are not worshiping in spirit and in truth.  If we are not worshiping in truth we are worshiping a false god and not the true and living God.  I can throw out all the parts I dont like and just read the good happy stuff that says Heaven is made of precious jewels and life is all rainbows and lollipops if I want but if I worship a false god I am guilty of sin and will spend an eternity in hell with satan and his angles. There is more proof of Jesus than Caesar and I don't see anyone debating if Caesar really was a king.  So you may ask do I think gays and lesbians are destined for hell?  I am saying that ANYONE who leads an unrepentant lifestyle and does not give their hearts to Jesus will.  I dont care if you gay or a little old lady sitting on a porch knitting a sweater for her grand kid.  If one breaks the law we expect them to be punished the same thing applies here.

God is also against living together before your married, being married to more than one person whether it be at the same time or because of divorce.  He is against fathers walking out on children and mothers and men hitting women and people getting drunk and people smoking.  So why are you ok with all that but not the rest of His word?  Homosexuality is a sin no matter how we feel or how much we want to justify it and trust me I have tried everything I can think of to justify it.  It can't be done.  We need to stop and take a look around and see whats really going on in the world and then see how much better it could be if we followed Gods word.  If you have questions comments or anything else please feel free to leave a comment here or email me at  God Bless Dustin

Confetti Batts

Sorry its been so long since I have posted.  Things have been slowing down at work with the promise of shut down weeks coming up in Aug and Oct.  So I have been trying to process some of my own fiber instead of sending it to the mill.  Here are some of my first batts "Confetti Batts".  They are from my Finn Shetland cross ewe and I blending in recycled silk scraps.  Here are some pics hope you enjoy them!

It was hard to capture all the silk in the batts and I am not sure I got in these pics but I uploaded several so hopefully you could see them.  I think they look better in person.  I have a black BL/BFL lamb fleece I am going to card up a couple batts of in this manner to see how I like them as well.  I still need to get that one picked and washed.  God Bless and keep those bunnies cool!
