Christian Liberty -- Healthcare (4)

*Information in this article is not intended to replace proper wisdom as directed by people who are experienced in dealing with symptoms.  Any information given and used by the individual, if it was done in a way that did not work, may not be used against the writer.

If a person wants to rely on the medical model, the person needs to have faith in the system.  They need to trust that the teaching methods that the doctor received are good, that the doctor they choose can think clearly about healthcare and that the doctor actually thinks of the patient more than thinking about the pharmacy industry profits.

The medical model overall in western-medicine usually sees things in nature as bad.  Particularly viruses and bacteria are seen as bad.  The medical model does not see that the body has been sickened because the immune system was not strong before the illness was acquired.  Sipping on evergreen tea each day could save you a lot of doctor visits, and you may never have to visit one again as the Vitamins strengthen the immune system.  The more the medical model creates drugs which kill organisms, the higher likely hood that the human body will not have the opportunity to get stengthened and ability to fight off the infections.  This is referred to as MRSA.

When a person visits various doctors, each doctor will prescribe different remedies to overcome the illness.  The patient can choose his or her own remedy too.  Each remedy will differ significantly, but if the doctor is supportive of big-pharma he or she will not consider nature remedies.

Each person has a freedom of religion in the USA.  So a person who does not believe in the religion of medicine should not need to use the system to heal diseases in the body.  The person should not be required by law to pay other people's insurance problems which will use this western model of medicine.  As the western model is a model of medicine is a model of distrust in the creator's healing power.

If a person isn't practicing regular financial gain in medicine then he or she can practice healing without a license.  People have the freedom to choose to see a faith healer who does not have a license to heal and is doing so without financial gain and support from the "western system."

90% of the exams in the USA are unnecessary and routine.  Well-Child checks may be unnecessary (if the child doesn't have a major life-threatening illness) if the parent knows what to look for in his or her own children's health.  Elderly visits to the doctor may be unnecessary if the elderly are perfectly independent in making many of his or her own choices and decisions about using prescriptions or not using prescriptions.  Yearly check-ups for major diseases may also be unnecessary if the patient studies ways to overcome the issues on his or her own.  Issues like diabetes, heart disease, maternity issues and so forth.

Hospitals and the system (excluding extreme emergencies) of institutionalization, kills more people each year than natural healing practices, independent or home-care.   (http://www.jhsph.edu/sebin/s/k/2000_JAMA_Starfield.pdf)  Do the research about whom you should and shouldn't trust when it comes to healthcare.  Gain liberty in the restoration of the truth in healthcare.

(2Sa 22:3)  The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.

Law and NT Explanation - Property and Property rights

(Christians may do these things in a "spiritual" sense and changing the approach to dealing with justice, but reality is that these laws are for the land of Israel and the times before Christ explained proper Justice and Mercy.)  CHRISTIAN DO meditate on these verses, OLD and NEW.  Gain better ground at the righteousness in Judgement of the Lord.

Property and Property Rights

  1. Not to sell a field in the land of Israel in perpetuity (Lev. 25:23) (negative).
  2. Not to change the character of the open land (about the cities of) the Levites or of their fields; not to sell it in perpetuity, but it may be redeemed at any time (Lev. 25:34) (negative). See Levi.
  3. That houses sold within a walled city may be redeemed within a year (Lev. 25:29) (affirmative).
  4. Not to remove landmarks (property boundaries) (Deut. 19:14) (CCN85).
  5. Not to swear falsely in denial of another's property rights (Lev. 19:11) (CCN30).
  6. Not to deny falsely another's property rights (Lev. 19:11) (CCN36).
  7. Never to settle in the land of Egypt (Deut. 17:16) (CCN192).
  8. Not to steal personal property (Lev. 19:11) (CCN34).
  9. To restore that which one took by robbery (Lev. 5:23) (CCA68).
  10. To return lost property (Deut. 22:1) (CCA69).
  11. Not to pretend not to have seen lost property, to avoid the obligation to return it (Deut. 22:3) (CCN182).

from www.jewfaq.org

(Lev 25:23)  The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for ye are strangers and sojourners with me.
(Lev 25:34)  But the field of the suburbs of their cities may not be sold; for it is their perpetual possession.
(Lev 25:29)  And if a man sell a dwelling house in a walled city, then he may redeem it within a whole year after it is sold; within a full year may he redeem it.
(Deu 19:14)  Thou shalt not remove thy neighbour's landmark, which they of old time have set in thine inheritance, which thou shalt inherit in the land that the LORD thy God giveth thee to possess it.
(Lev 19:11)  Ye shall not steal, neither deal falsely, neither lie one to another.
(Deu 17:16)  But he shall not multiply horses to himself, nor cause the people to return to Egypt, to the end that he should multiply horses: forasmuch as the LORD hath said unto you, Ye shall henceforth return no more that way.
(Deu 22:1)  Thou shalt not see thy brother's ox or his sheep go astray, and hide thyself from them: thou shalt in any case bring them again unto thy brother.
(Deu 22:3)  In like manner shalt thou do with his ass; and so shalt thou do with his raiment; and with all lost thing of thy brother's, which he hath lost, and thou hast found, shalt thou do likewise: thou mayest not hide thyself.
(Act 2:24)  Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
(Act 4:32)  And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common.
(1Co 10:13)  There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
(Mat 6:19)  Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
(Rom 2:21)  Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?

Poor Children -Gospel goes to the poor.

Poor Children.

The gospel is preached to the poor.........in these nations.....but people who are spoiled in the Americas take this opportunity for granted.....

Are you a wealthy american? Debt may be your curse? Did you forget the days when men lived in cabins or tents with dirt floors and built their own beds?
Humble Thy Self
Check all that apply:
1. I have shoes for my feet.
2. I have a floor under my feet that is not dirt.
3. I have electric stove.
4. I have enough food so my children and I don't have to fast for any meals.
5. I have four walls on my home that are solid and not made of tent material.
6. I have easy access to maternity care if I want it.
8. I have a car that runs smoothly.
9. I have an educational system/tools that teaches my children how to read, write and calculate higher division problems. (Holy Bible is sufficient educational tool in times of need an famine)
10. My bed is not made of ropes and hay, but is made mattress in factory.
11. I don't need to hand wash my clothes if I do not want to.
12. I have access to refrigeration.
If you have answered more than two of these things, you are a wealthy person. If you have debt......then this is how you should live to overcome your debt. Consider camping in the wilderness.

Christian Liberty -- Healthcare (3)

*Information in this article is not intended to replace proper wisdom as directed by people who are experienced in dealing with symptoms.  Any information given and used by the individual, if it was done in a way that did not work, may not be used against the writer.

Healthcare system is a religion.  Period.  There is jargon left, jargon right, jargon which refers to certain things which must be done in order to accomplish the given goal.  Jargon is "the language, especially the vocabulary, peculiar to a particular trade, profession, or group:" according to dictionary.com.  The particular health care system called Western Medicine uses specific Jargon to enhance the group's specific goal.  The goal is to amplify the "religious" position of the people working WITHIN the religion.  

Religion amplifies prophets, priests, kings, pastors, deacons, popes, rabbis, nuns, Sunday School Teacher and so forth.  Many people believe the people in these positions are automatically "good" just because they are in the position.  Same applies to Healthcare.  Jargon is used to label the people working in the positions.  Nurse, CNA, Doctor, Specialist Doctor, Pharmacist, psychologists, lab-worker and so forth.  It is a institutionalized religion and for some people it can turn into a wicked institution.  People of minority status HAVE been used as guinea pigs to test "vaccines" while they watch their children die under the system which controls.

People who choose not to use the system are subject to ridicule, mocking, scorning, sour looks and other negative reactions.  The institutionalized religion is forced upon people.  Even the most wonderful "smile" is actually scorn, when people understand the true motives behind why people chose the profession religion they chose.  If people choose not to allow their children to participate in the system for any reason, the people are often victim of severe ridicule and legal action.  https://medicalkidnap.com/ If an emergency happens and a person needs emergency care, the patient who walks in the door is told they were "unwise," "fools" and "needed" the care of the western-medicine system in order to avoid coming to them in the first place.  

Doctors are the high priests who know everything about how the system works and what the people should do on a daily basis to make the system function.  People in the Western World and Political world give such high devotion to this system of religion, even Christians make this error, that they believe no error exists in this system of institutional religion.  People are required to talk with the high priest, the doctor, in order to overcome any issue in their life.  The high priest needs to know how many times you walk around the block at night, to what types of books your children read during the day.

Faith is a part of religion.  Faith in the pharmaceuticals and the system gives power to enhance the religion and its "social powers" and its "chemistry powers."  Before much experimental works, the simple CNA worker was the doctor of ancient religion.  But because of people "having faith" in the science in the religion of "western-medicine," people have abandoned the original knowledge foundations the average person once knew.  People have no faith in their own knowledge and have faith that the doctor knows how to repair what is wrong.  Instead of grabbing sage, lambs ear and other resources from nature to heal a person who is wounded, bandages that cost 5$ a box, liquid poured through the veins to stop bleeding costs 200$ a bag and so forth.  People have "faith" in the system, rather than in nature as a resource.

So much faith in the system encourages the production of more "chemistry experiments" to get rid of disease, rather than KNOWING that the body itself is designed to miraculously overcome many diseases.  Just feeding the body better nutrition care, faith in the divine and elements from nature itself CAN get rid of more diseases more effectively than the finest "chemistry experiments."  The greatest disease fighter the human body was given is the immune system.  Given enough proper attention and care, the body will use this system to fight disease effectively.  

Instead of relying in faith on the given "immune system" which normally doesn't fight against a person's own body, people rely on a far worse "system" which has doctors with criminal records and terrorist supporting intentions, nurses with infidelity problems, and lab-workers with severe family problems and abandonment of needy folks in his or her own family.  Not only that but the nice person that works at the counter to take the insurance card, may actually be criminally embezzling money from the system itself for his or her own self-vain glory (I have heard of this occurring).....If you must use the "system" of medicine...... be sure to check out physician accountability

Mat_8:26  And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.

Milkweed is edible

Nearly all parts of the milk weed are edible.

1. The stem is edible before it turns into thickened stem.  **Suggested cooking possibility:  Boil 1 min, drain, boil 1 min with soda (to remove tough skins), drain, Boil until tender like asparagus.  Boiling three times removes bitterness.  Some feel this is not neccesary.

2. The young 2 inch milk weed pods are edible before it turns into silk ** or may be fried.

3. The flowers are edible. May be fried.

4. The leaves are edible.  Anytime.  **

You may also add milkweed to stir-fry.

Christian Liberty - Health Care (2)

*Information in this article is not intended to replace proper wisdom as directed by people who are experienced in dealing with symptoms.  Any information given and used by the individual, if it was done in a way that did not work, may not be used against the writer.

Each individual has the ability to make their own healthcare decisions, childbearing decisions and decisions in how to take care of weak individuals in the power of their hands as God provides for needs.  The research the individual uses can include books they have read, experiences they have faced, medical journals, online information, consulting medical professionals, learning from others who have experienced such situations and so forth.  Wisdom does not necessarily need to come from high paid professional educational institutions, but can come from resources available to professionals in the field and resources available to the general public.  Internal wisdom, prayer and intuition can also be a powerful means to help people heal.

Common medicine (many refer to it as Western-Medicine), discourages people to make his or her own decisions about their health and allow the "professional" to make all decisions regarding health.  Even common "Christian" hospitals falsely claim to hold more wisdom than the patient in reguards to health and its services.   In Christian belief, especially in areas with high persecution, war or famine, it is impossible to consult and trust doctors first.  Consulting the bible as a means of health, needs to come first.  It is better to trust internal wisdom resivour to sustain the life of those in your care or sustain one's own life.

In general, information found in physician textbooks, medical journals and so forth is available to the general public.  Even in the USA.  It is up to the reader to decide if the information given in the texts are useful information for health or is propaganda information which is used to promote the institutional system.  Internal wisdom can reveal this to the student of such texts.

Psa_37:30  The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

Law and NT explanation - Injuries and Damages

(Christians may do these things in a "spiritual" sense and changing the approach to dealing with justice, but reality is that these laws are for the land of Israel and the times before Christ explained proper Justice and Mercy.)  CHRISTIAN DO meditate on these verses, OLD and NEW.  Gain better ground at the righteousness in Judgement of the Lord.

Injuries and Damages from www.jewfaq.org

To make a parapet for your roof (Deut. 22:8) (CCA75). See Love and Brotherhood.
Not to leave something that might cause hurt (Deut. 22:8) (CCN190). See Love and Brotherhood.
To save the pursued even at the cost of the life of the pursuer (Deut. 25:12) (affirmative). See Life.
Not to spare a pursuer, but he is to be slain before he reaches the pursued and slays the latter, or uncovers his nakedness (Deut. 25:12) (negative).

New gal 4:12, 2 Cor 7:9, Heb 10:32, Heb 11:25

(Deu 22:8)  When thou buildest a new house, then thou shalt make a battlement for thy roof, that thou bring not blood upon thine house, if any man fall from thence.
(Deu 25:12)  Then thou shalt cut off her hand, thine eye shall not pity her.

(Gal 4:12)  Brethren, I beseech you, be as I am; for I am as ye are: ye have not injured me at all.
(2Co 7:9)  Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing.
(Heb 10:32)  But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;
(Heb 11:25)  Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

Heb_13:17  Obey them that have the rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch for your souls, as they that must give account, that they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is unprofitable for you.
1Pe_4:7  But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.

Christian Liberty - Health Care (1)

When a person understands their role in Christ, they understand that they are using this world temporarily.

*Information in this article is not intended to replace proper wisdom as directed by people who are experienced in dealing with symptoms.  Any information given and used by the individual, if it was done in a way that did not work, may not be used against the writer.

Removing obstacles that hinder ones ability to seek good health is often what causes many people to suffer in this life needlessly.  Improper habits and diet are a major cause of hindrances.  When people utilize western Medicine or the physicians care, the treatments are often too expensive or too hazardous to other health issues and/or too painful.  What ends up happening is problems become worse rather than better.

When we seek western-medicine doctors we end up getting so pulled in and trapped by the system that when we WANT an alternative that is less expensive and more natural they attempt to undermine your internal wisdom as a patient.  

You have the freedom in Christ to emancipate your self from the system of medical care in a way that is not harming the healthcare system (throwing fits and tantrums at the ER doctors) and others in the process.

Psa_67:2  That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.

Do's and Don'ts guide for Conservative Christian belief......

There are times where it is better to suffer for righteousness sake than to avoid suffering at all.

The secular world is watching.  The world system says the bible is full of Do's and Don'ts so it isn't for "them."  In reality, the entire bible is for all people to help them receive and give proper love, mercy and justice (no man from any land likes to be disrespected).  From the smallest definitions to the greatest stories of parting the red sea.  This is to protect people from the evil of this world.  All people have to face these issues.....but Conservative biblical beliefs are basic understanding that only one hope exist for men for salvation from this wicked world.

Do keep careful track of your continuous dedication to bible study.

Don't ignore the poor, the stranger, the fatherless, the widow. (seriously.  Overprotection from "them" is not biblical advice)

Do meditate on bible verses.

Don't ignore the Sabbath Day.  Yes, it is still the seventh day of the week.  Christ himself practiced Sabbath and he explained what was wrong when people had the wrong attitude about it.

Do cut off the wicked things in your life or of loved ones' life in which you are to guard.

Don't force your innocent to suffer under ungodly men (people who teach children to purposefully link arms with sexual impurity and other wicked things) in education or in nursing homes and care.

Do allow grace to those who are forced to used the ungodly institutions.

Don't abandon people who talk about the bible differently than you, but speak highly of eliminating adultery (look at how Jesus spoke about Capernea), gluttony, idolatry, lies, seditions, strife, dependency on dangerous drugs and so forth.

Do seek counsel from godly people.

Don't seek to ignore the wisdom from the wise in this world.

Do find the strength to love those who repent of their sin.  ANY and all sinners can repent.

Don't continuously look at the sin in others.

Do seek family time to study the scripture together.

Don't force others out of your bible study and discussion if they are of a different heritage, personal choices which still remain godly and understanding.

Do not judge the way people choose to speak about Jesus, Yah, Messiah or other terms for the Saviour.  A name can be discerned by the heart of the speaker.

Don't believe that it is ok to judge people who fast, pray many times a day and cover themselves with modesty.

Do put Christ on the lamp in your community.

Don't put yourSELF or your family on a pedestal in front of the whole world.

Do listen to the little details about when the months of the bible are listed.  Abib, Iyyar, Sivan......

Don't keep believing in the pagan holidays and making them what they were never meant to be.

Do discern the nature of Purim, the origin of issues the Jews faced in this world.

Don't ignore those who talk to strangers who happen to be Jewish or any other minority demographically.

Do take the time to care for others while protecting yourself in the road of life.

Don't cut off someone of the faith who talked to a sinner, an LGBT person or a sports fanatic.

Do learn about the applicable Jewish traditions and practices that help the bible work.  Immagine participating with the Israelites as they cross the red-sea.

Don't be high-minded and think that you are more powerful, wise and good than the one who parted the red-sea.

Do support those in the middle east who love Jesus and the gospel.

Don't ignore those who are overcoming issues in themselves from many years of false religion or poor practices from the Middle East.

Do love the church body of believers.  Pray for them, seek fellowship with them.

Don't forget to seek alone time with your creator.  Space and fellowship with Holy is ever needed in this sin-filled world.

(For woman) Do be a grace-filled, godly, orderly, sensible woman.  Understand that pregnancies fail and people do need others for support in this life.  Some women are raped and molested.  Rahab was given the chance to live.  You are not to judge those people and how they handle it.

(For woman) Don't be a scorn-filled, hate-filled, feminist, anti-family supporter.  People need protection from evil people.

Do seek wisdom if your faith group is not going in the right direction.  Look at its condition according to the scripture and according to what others on the outside see.

Don't break apart marriage designed by biblical standards and creator's standards which have minor flaws such as a foolish man.  In some cases be brave and stay with marriages that have major issues like addictions and anger.  In some cases, it is ok to allow unbelieving spouses to leave or seek personal safety.

Do seek to eliminate forming marriages with sin encouragement or practices.

Don't be a Christ merchandiser.  Pastors, church leaders, special writers, deacons and so forth are not in the simplicity of Christ, they are a part of institutional structures.  Imitating the world-system of institutional structure is not a spiritual goal that fulfills the role of the bride of Christ.  Yes, special preachers can speak and elders can be used, but it is not a paid position.  It is a willingness to suffer for righteousness sake position.

Do understand the true element of Christian living is from the words in red.  The true doctrine is from the gospel alone, all else is funding the Christ merchandiser.  Christ did say "Mar_12:10  And have ye not read this scripture; The stone which the builders rejected is become the head of the corner"

Don't ignore the first five books of the Bible.  That is where the foundation of understanding the rest of the Bible comes from.  God's laws are important and give the believers good ideas from which to live their life appropriately.

Do ignore the gossipy websites or people that are constantly playing "boy who cried wolf" among Christian beliefs.  They select the beliefs they like and attack such things as patriarchy Christianity.  When the true wolf comes into the "play" and pedophiles are exposed, the children have been injured beyond repair.  Their stance against evil is not working, because they attack the innocent in the process.

Don't micromanage human lives.

Do pay attention to deep detailed needs in people's lives.

Ok.....so don't follow "Laura" as I have weeds in my garden from time to time.....BUT do love the CHURCH body of believers as Christ teaches you how to LOVE.

How can you identify a "racist" person????

Answer: There isn't a complete answer except what the bible teaches.

Often they find "fault" with others, when the others do not even understand what they did wrong in the first place.  "Psa 35:11  False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not. "

They could be "conservative" politically.  They could be "liberal" politically.  They could be of any nationality or heritage.

Maybe they could be calling themselves Christian and run a fine Church program.  Maybe they are not calling themselves Christian and live a lavish life in style and prestige.

Usually, the answer is this: "by their fruits, ye shall know them"

So if they cater to the policial correct crowd, and never speak a word of truth about conditions of men they are not reliant on the first five books of the bible, but the five books of "men" (pride, lust, idolatry, cowardliness, selfish vain glory), there is a huge sign, that something is wrong in their spirit.

Do they believe that all men and women who use doctors are fine people? (2Ch_16:12  And Asa in the thirty and ninth year of his reign was diseased in his feet, until his disease was exceeding great: yet in his disease he sought not to the LORD, but to the physicians.)

Do they believe that all men and women who put up a Christmas tree and Celebrate Easter are fine people? (1Co_10:14  Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.)

Do they care about the little details in the bible and lifestyle?  Like when is the Month of Abib?  What is Tish b' Av in the Jewish culture and life?  Other little culture details like the names of the month for other cultures?  Do they run and hide when the truth is revealed from the Old Testament? What about little truths in the New Testament about whom Jesus loved and whom we are to love?

Overall, they may call themselves GOOD, or select the certain people in their life who call them good....but never check to see if they are good according to the word.  They select the "vulnerable" people in the community to be friends while ignoring the "tough" people who question their condition before Holy God.  Hence they DO NOT want to be refined in their character.

They could be spiritually abusive and not admit it.  They could be quite popular in the community, but inwardly hold grudges when people speak about their own sinful behavior.

We don't really know who is "racist" except under fire and trial.  So speak the truth away.  Wiiwiisina iwodi (I don't need a pastor for a wedding, a baptism or a funeral........).  I only need Great Spirit......Holy Spirit to provide comfort all days.

The father of Noah lived to be 777 years.  To a racist person who doesn't agree with scripture as it is written (by years, months, days, hours), they (the racist man) will NEVER allow this truth to be told.

Gen 5:28  And Lamech lived an hundred eighty and two years, and begat a son:
Gen 5:29  And he called his name Noah, saying, This same shall comfort us concerning our work and toil of our hands, because of the ground which the LORD hath cursed.
Gen 5:30  And Lamech lived after he begat Noah five hundred ninety and five years, and begat sons and daughters:
Gen 5:31  And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven years: and he died.

When you are reading the bible consider the TRUE condition of the countries:

Law and New Testament explaination - Court and Judicial Procedure

(Christians may do these things in a "spiritual" sense and changing the approach to dealing with justice, but reality is that these laws are for the land of Israel and the times before Christ explained proper Justice and Mercy.)  CHRISTIAN DO meditate on these verses, OLD and NEW.  Gain better ground at the righteousness in Judgement of the Lord.

1Pe_3:19  By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;

Act_26:10  Which thing I also did in Jerusalem: and many of the saints did I shut up in prison, having received authority from the chief priests; and when they were put to death, I gave my voice against them.

Rev_12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

Don't make your "screwed up" family into an IDOL.....

Uncle Bill he drank too much.

Uncle Bob he had at least five women pregnant out of wedlock.

Billy Joe, couldn't even hold down a job for 6 months and constantly in and out of rehab.

Aunt Sue, couldn't keep her mouth shut and constantly borrowing stuff from others.

Aunt May, couldn't keep a man in her life and constantly swore at those men.

......Cousin Frank, Cousin Lilly and Cousin Kelly all joined up with LGBT campaigning.....and Frank came home with "aids".

Ok, maybe this could be your family.  Maybe your dad was abusive.  Maybe your mom was never "a mother."

Be real.

Do NOT make these people or their lifestyle your IDOL.

It will burden you.  It will burden your family members.

Follow Jesus.  He knows WHY the people have these issues in their heart.  You do NOT have to carry that burden.  HE carried that Burden.

Do not CATER to their issues.  You do not have to be afraid of their issues.  But do NOT cater to their issues.  Especially if there is an "angry" man among the midst.  Anger issues ARE necessary to be dealt with by Gospel, and Gospel alone.

Your family may have talent despite these issues.  Painting?  Phd's?  Successful business?.....

Get the point?  If this sound like your family, or a neighbor's family do not make their "bad choices" the idol.

One day all the dust will settle.  The persecuted ones in the family will get the crown of victory.  All their time spent hiding their bible.  Hiding their ability to serve local orphans.  Hiding the time they had to take bullets to get a friend out of the nightclub.  all that Stuff will get revealed.

In the mean time read: https://www.amazon.com/Lies-Women-Believe-Truth-that-ebook/dp/B0038U0TIM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1499647715&sr=8-1&keywords=lies+women+believe

How should Christian businesses/workers work with LGBT customers?

How should Christian businesses serve LGBT customers?  I've had my share of "abuse" from both sides of the fence.  Far-left and far-right.  Far-left being more crude and ignorant of bible passages than far-right (far-right simply follow political trends and don't understand full-bible story).

1. The same as each individual customer, with basic kindness and respect.  Ask no questions about 'medical history.'

2. Serve only 'one name' per order.  Catering orders never ask for 'type' of marriage or ceremony.

3. If questions about your faith are asked, simply explain bible verses which explain faith.  Do not attempt to just generally say 'I believe in one-man-and-one-woman marriages, and that's final,'. As this is not the true reflection of Christian faith.  (Bible speaks about polygyny, polyamoury (brotherly and sisterly love), and the reality that Jesus loved Lazarus....go ahead, read-it, Jesus himself had platonic brotherly love)

4. Don't "idolize" sexual impurity and perversions.  That is the ditch of hyper-grace.  You are NOT a Christ follower if you do not believe in correcting men in their sin and perversion (including men in one-man-one-woman marriages caught in infidelity...... even  John the Baptist corrected a divorced and remarried man).  Putting a color-full flag on your business door, facebook page, bumper stickers,  etc etc. proves nothing in regards to faith, as idolatry and faith are not mixable.  (Read about how Jesus spoke about Capernea.......they were worse than Sodom and Gomorrah)

5. With the same attitude that all customers should show the business respect, equally.  No matter what.  If they are angry and crude in your store, then they should leave or call emergency number to have them removed and jailed.  Any man or woman who is caught putting "feces" or dancing in rated-x costumes in a family based and run business does not deserve to be treated with kind-service, they deserve justice.

6. If you are being "persecuted" by such customers, it is up to you on how you wish to handle the situation.  You may a. love the enemy......invite them to dinner b. pray for the enemy c. flee persecution. (Jesus said to do these things)......dependent on the situation.  If you DO invite them to dinner, you may find out that they had a bad-history in the beginning of their life which led them to such a lifestyle.  Abuse, neglect, homelessness etc.  Be merciful......they can and do repent of sin if they are given the knowledge of what to do.  People don't go to "hell" because they practice their sin lifestyle, they go to "hell" because they don't accept that Jesus paid the price for their sin lifestyle and choose to follow him on this earth.

7. Do not give into the "liberal clutter Christianity" which says the patriarchy Christians, conservative Christians, zionist Christians etc. are crude to LGBT people, because they believe that "lust" can be cornered and stopped by more bible study, service towards others and prayer.  Bible meditation is MEDICATION for the soul.  The way to bondage is to cater to the world-system rather than attention to "the word."  Bible study and reflection HELPS people make better choices in life, so it does help LGBT people overcome many issues in their life.

So in summary, when you are "over the rainbow" and over the reality that sexuality is not a reflection of Truth......unless done according to God's laws and purposes.....then Follow the Yellow Brick Road : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aYvs9cB3qVk

Furthermore a person simply CANNOT call themselves Christian or a Christian CHURCH if they are in favor of "Sodom and Gomorrah" lifestyles.  Jesus himself referenced Sodom and Gomorrah more than one time, and each time he referenced it in negative frame of mind, so that indicates that he is OPPOSED to such ways of going through this life.  (Mat 10:15, Matt 11:23, Matt 11:24, Mar 6:11, Luk 10:12, Luk 17:29).  A person can support platonic brotherly love.....but they cannot support "Sodmon and Gomorrah" sexuality, practice and lifestyle.

(Deu 31:12)  Gather the people together, men, and women, and children, and thy stranger that is within thy gates, that they may hear, and that they may learn, and fear the LORD your God, and observe to do all the words of this law:

(Lev 25:10)  And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubile unto you; and ye shall return every man unto his possession, and ye shall return every man unto his family.

(Lev 25:11)  A jubile shall that fiftieth year be unto you: ye shall not sow, neither reap that which groweth of itself in it, nor gather the grapes in it of thy vine undressed.

(Lev 25:24)  And in all the land of your possession ye shall grant a redemption for the land.

(Luk 4:19)  To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.

(Act 19:10)  And this continued by the space of two years; so that all they which dwelt in Asia heard the word of the Lord Jesus, both Jews and Greeks.

(2Pe 3:8)  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
