While gossip is certainly bad, Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out: so where there is no talebearer, the strife ceaseth. 21 As coals are to burning coals, and wood to fire; so is a contentious man to kindle strife. 22 The words of a talebearer are as wounds, and they go down into the innermost parts of the belly. 23Burning lips and a wicked heart are like a potsherd covered with silver dross. He that hates others is even worse. That one hides seven abominations in his heart. Looks like it could be the seven abominations of Proverbs 6:16-19. 24 He that hateth dissembleth with his lips, and layeth up deceit within him; 25 When he speaketh fair, believe him not: for there are seven abominations in his heart. 26 Whose hatred is covered by deceit, his wickedness shall be shewed before the whole congregation. 27 Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him. 28 A lying tongue hateth those that are afflicted by it; and a flattering mouth worketh ruin.

But the threat is definitely real.
The gist of it is now that the SCOTUS has legalized male/male and female/female marriages, pastors will be threatened with jail and/or prison sentences should they refuse to perform ceremonies for such.
Are free-will Believers just as saved as hard core Calvinist's? The free will Believer looks to a Christ died That all men might be saved. The Calvinist Believer looks to a Christ that died that only an elect few could be saved. things that are different are not the same.
I use Blue Letter Bible on my iPad. It has more than one version on it, but you can set it to use KJV ONLY IN SETTINGS. HAS GREAT INTERFACE SCROLL AT TOP FOR NAVIGATING TO SPECIFIC VERSES. ALSO ALLOWS SEARCES WITH KEYWORDS.
