    In the other thread you are denying the clearly given meaning of the Word of God as presented. Pointing that out doesn't question your salvation or whether you can present the Gospel accurately.
    That said, I really don't think this needs to be discussed in two threads.

    Relying on Scripture means believing and accepting what Scripture says, not trying to scheme it or intellectualize it away. While others have presented the clear meaning of Scripture, you have attempted to circumvent this and invent your own concept in its place. That's far more akin to the methods of the RCC than is accepting God's Word for what it says.

    Exodus 3:1
    Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

    Wow! Why not just accept what Scripture says? Sword and others have given excellent answers already yet you continue to carry on which makes a person wonder "why".

    I noticed some are trying to start a trend for those who aren't going to "rainbow" their profile pic to have an American flag cover over their profile pic.
    Not only on Facebook and other places online, but in the real world I see Confederate battle flags almost everywhere I look.
    Small businesses which sell Confederate flags and themed products are enjoying an economic boom right now that's greater than a typical Christmas rise in sales.

    And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Isaac, and with Jacob.

    Unfortunately the so-called "Greatest Generation" gave us the rebellious liberal youth that worked hard to wreck America in the 60s and 70s. The Baby Boomers were even more lax with their offspring, as has those who have come since. Most children, youth and even young adults today have spent nearly their whole lives awash in liberal, secular, sinful indoctrination through public schools, TV, movies, "news", government, colleges, music and even much of what they picked up from their parents.
    Sadly, in many Christian households it's not much different. Our pastor often points out that when parents say they don't want to push Christianity on their children, that they are just going to let them decide for themselves what they want to do because they don't want to influence them, what they are really saying is they don't care enough to do what's right for their children and they are going to allow the world to influence them instead, pushing them to accept and adopt the secular, sinful ways of the world. Even so, some parents just go right ahead and let little Billy and Bonnie skip church in favor of watching a movie on TV, playing video games, or engaging in some other secular matter.
    It's interesting to notice that such parents will readily admit their children aren't able to make various important decisions on their own yet when it comes to Christianity they think somehow their children know enough to make the right decisions.
    Christian parents complain about the stuff their children pick up and copy from public schools but they keep sending them there. Later, these same parents spend thousands of dollars to send their children to secular schools where their children learn all about how to get drunk fast, dress to quickly attract sexual attention, and receive a full dose of anti-Christian propaganda. Then they wonder why their college age darlings come home pregnant, become drunks, think Christianity is the white man's religion of dominance over women and non-whites, hold socialist and communist ideas.
    We all know the "sports first" factor which infects many Christian families and leaves many pews empty and Sunday school seats unused because children involved in every sport under the sun, even during church hours, is far more important than the state of their souls and eternal destiny.
    We can sound the alarm, provide biblical guidance, but if the parents let it go in one ear and out the other there is little more that we can do. That puts their children at great risk and sets the stage for things to be even worse for their own children in this area. Meanwhile, the average age in most biblically sound churches today grows older each year as children, youth and young adults choose the world over the things of God.
