If you understood why I posted those Verses, because, even though God takes Israel to oversee, He puts Angels in charge of the other Nations. The Fact Nations like Egypt, Babylon, Greece, Rome, Mede's, Persians, etc [[[SERVE FALSE gods]]]...God puts His Angels over these Nations but these Nations become Enemies to God's Nation, Israel.

So here, we see another Act of Rebellion by the Angels towards God!

This is why we see in Psalms 82:
6 ‘You are gods,’ I said;
‘all of you are children of the Most High.’
7 But you will die like mortals;
Now, How did God Bring All the Nations back together?

Jesus, on the Cross!

Gentiles are Welcomed Home!

Now the World is Unified by God.

Until the New World Order.

Jesus cited Psalm 82 in John 10:
34Jesus replied, “Is it not written in your Law: ‘I have said you are gods’d? 35If he called them gods to whom the word of God came—and the Scripture cannot be broken—

this brings us back to the actual definition of the sons of God, which are mortals.
He also knew if they Knew Scripture, they would know WHO Jesus is.
They did not know Scripture at all.
So, Jesus slid this right past them.

How many times we read, if you knew the LAW, you would know Moses wrote about ME?

But, they did not ever know. Idiots, not even book smart!

there is no issue at all.

The movie is doing great things, God is using a sinner to accomplish his will..

and through it. his word and his character is being seen by many, even the one hurling the flag..
Just because you say does not make it so.
You disregard the potential harm as though there is none at all.

They knew exactly what He was saying, they just didn't believe it considering after this, they attempted to seize him for proclaiming it (v. 39).

So you do not stand against evil after all? That's how your post comes across.

Sorry I had something I had to handle quickly and couldn't finish the post. If that's how the post comes across I certainly didn't mean it to. And I think you know me pretty much by now and what I stand for. I'm trying to stay out of the personal part and speak to what I see. I think I've been pretty clear on that point. Not that I should have to be because most people here know me.

I quoted Psalms 82, and you try to make John 10 Psalms 82. Jesus said this knowledge comes from the LAW.

34 Jesus answered, “It is written in your own Law that God said, ‘You are gods.’

So, Psalms 82 is just as I Claimed it to be!

Psalms, IS NOT the LAW, nor any part of the Law!

Yet Jesus hung out with Drunks and prostitutes and loved them

And because of this love. many of them came to Christ.

He loved them, yes, but He didn't tolerate their sin. He wasn't inclusive. He said "go your way and sin no more".

Not at all. I just want to know what you mean by "hung out with" so we're on the same page.

Matt 9: 9 As Jesus passed on from there, He saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax office. And He said to him, “Follow Me.” So he arose and followed Him.
10 Now it happened, as Jesus sat at the table in the house, that behold, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat down with Him and His disciples. 11 And when the Pharisees saw it, they said to His disciples, “Why does your Teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?”
12 When Jesus heard that, He said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. 13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice.’ For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance.
Luke 5:27-29 says: "After these things He went out and saw a tax collector named Levi sitting at the tax office; and He said to him, 'Follow me!' So leaving everything he got up and followed Him. Then Levi made a great banquet for Him at his house; and there was a large crowd of tax collectors and others who were reclining with them."

Jesus attended a banquet given by Matthew, to which He was invited. There happened to be there other tax-collector acquaintances of Mathew. Jesus didn't refuse Matthew's invitation and so He was present along with all the tax collectors. I presume this is what you mean by "hanging out with."

Luke 7:
29 And when all the people heard Him, even the tax collectors justified God, having been baptized with the baptism of John. 30 But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the will of God for themselves, not having been baptized by him.

31 And the Lord said, “To what then shall I liken the men of this generation, and what are they like? 32 They are like children sitting in the marketplace and calling to one another, saying:

‘We played the flute for you,
And you did not dance;
We mourned to you,
And you did not weep.’

33 For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ 34 The Son of Man has come eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Look, a glutton and a winebibber, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’ 35 But wisdom is justified by all her children.”
I don't really see how any of these verses have anything to do with Jesus "hanging out" with sinners. The Pharisees accused Jesus of a lot of things. They accused Him of being demon possessed. They accused Him of being a glutton and winebibber. Was any of this true? Was He a friend of tax collectors and sinners? Absolutely. But being a friend to someone doesn't necessarily mean "hanging out" with them. "Do not be deceived: 'Bad company ruins good morals.' " 1Corinthians 15:33

Harm in seeing people come to Christ because of a great TV series?

I see more harm being done by so called people of God bringing attention to it where most people would never even see it..

The Pharisee's accused Him, that means, THEY SAW IT!
And the killer key here is, Jesus, doesn't deny it.
Ok, but again, Christians are taking this out of context and trying to apply it to today. And that is fine. But like I said Jesus never made anyone comfortable in their sin. He was direct. He said "go and sin no more lest something worse comes upon you." Jesus was never tolerant of sin, nor inclusive of sinners. We need to be clear when we deal with the lost, the same way Jesus was.

Jesus could not have won them to Christ if he judged them and sent them away..

First off, it has been wise for myself to let this fight come to me, rather than me trying to find it. But in really trying to avoid it, God, makes you have a Brother, who is a gay porn star and wife to another man. So, you get stuck in these without any effort at all. All you gotta do is say, I follow what God says. I will always get asked, what's that? To which I reply, We Are ALL SINNERS and NEED to Repent! It ain't hard to equal everyone out from word go. Now, you have way more control.

Someone mentioned feminized Christianity yesterday, and I didn't think I'd ever heard that term before, so I asked what it was, but also looked it up. Basically what I found was that it was a soft-pedalling of sin. So what I see is many making excuses for and rationalizing and trying to justify the blatant lies, false accusations, and slurs people have told here. They are abominations in God's eyes also. But instead of people acknowledging that, they double down, and amp up the slurs and lies. smh.
