  1. I hope this may help with brethren. We can not expect the world to be under the reign of the Holy Spirit. Does it make it right? No but how we handle it affects our obedience to God. Philippians 2:14-16 King James Version (KJV)

    14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

    15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;

    16 Holding forth the word of life; that I may rejoice in the day of Christ, that I have not run in vain, neither laboured in vain.

    Do not grumble against one another, brothers, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing at the door. In all this Job did not sin or charge God with wrong. But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women would speak. Shall we receive good from God, and shall we not receive evil?

  2. I don't know anything about any situations, I just clicked on the video…. but if God gives someone convictions about certain things such as adultry, etc then if we or in this case THEY don't obey then we are in trouble with the Lord. God commanded us to be separate. No judgment here on either side because I don't know the issue at hand but what if they were doing right? Just something to consider. If Marilyn Manson was dining in a certain place, you better believe that I am walking out. That's my standard. It's good to have standards and convictions. I wouldn't care if He paid my bill, gave me a million dollars, etc. I couldn't accept it.

  3. You preach hate towards other people, so I think what the couple did was rather polite. At least they didn’t go on a rant, or threaten to have the manager kick you out. That would be way more out of line.

    Although, now I know that if I see you in public, I can at least strike up a reasonable (but short) conversation on our huge disagreements. Because I legitimately think you’re doing a lot of harm in this world by preaching what you preach.

  4. I don’t like bigoted, religious idiots like you either. I’d prefer to share my space with pleasant, rational people who care about others. But I’d still open the door for you, eat in the same restaurant and provided you were respectful to me, be respectful back. But I hear the hate in your voice. I’d speak to someone about that if I were you.

  5. Why would you be wanting to speak your biblical and political views in a restaurant where people you know might want to actually eat in peace? I could see if you are well known for not being able to keep quiet or respect other peoples right to eat in peace then I can see why they would want to eat elsewhere, and why do you think the joke is on them because you like to sometimes pay other peoples bills? Has it never struck you that these people maybe like to pay their own bills and would rather do so than hear a preacher ranting on?

  6. They didn't try to hurt you or yell at you or even talk to you at all. They just decided to eat somewhere else because they didn't want to be in your company. That seems like the most civilized thing they could have done. Frankly I don't blame them.
