So if I got this right david was gay, but then had a bad break up and decided he is actually straight. he has found a woman willing to accept him for his many flaws who lives in the old Brady house and it's there that he films his youtube videos. does that sound about right?

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

and get it right.

i love how bat shit crazy david is

to those who have strong biblical convictions and live by them, by the grace of God.

1 Peter 4
4 In regard to these, they think it strange that you do not run with them in the same flood of dissipation, speaking evil of you.

This guy seemed to be all over the place. Was he just reading the table of contents from one of his books? If so this was lame attempt at advertising.

David Ben-Ariel has previously written that God was angry about his promiscuous lifestyle as an active homosexual, and that the net result of God's wrath was an AIDS diagnosis.

I empathize with his suffering as an AIDS patient, but I agree that "bat shit crazy" may not be a rhetorical stretch as a description of Messr. Ben-Ariel. Seems to me that God is too busy to keep track of the sex life of every promiscuous person (straight or gay), and that sheer statistics have more to do with DB-A acquiring the HIV virus than an angry Lord.

I have never said God was angry about my former lifestyle or that I have AIDS due to "God's wrath." Sounds like you've been listening to too many godless "preachers" and are just repeating their mindless mantras.

You regularly quote Biblical passages that condemn homosexuality. Here is a passage from an article you wrote in 2006:

The Bible bluntly states: 1) There's no room in its quarters for "gay rights." Homosexuality isn't within the bounds of acceptable behavior. It's practice isn't permissible within the Christian Camp and will quickly find itself dumped outside of the City limits (Rev. 22:15). Anyone who dares to defy this ban automatically excludes himself from society at large and brings the death penalty upon himself (Gen. 2:17).

Admittedly you do not use the term "God's wrath" in this article, but the context you present is that homosexuality brings a heavy price due to the fact that "He pulls no punches and doesn't allow anyone to pervert His plans" (your words, same article). I think that "death penalty" and "God's wrath" are pretty contextual, and a reasonable paraphrase of your views.

Or, as you also put it (same article, your words): "That and every other Biblically-attached stigma is to help keep us in line, remind us of what we're doing, and force us to pay the fine."

Just like I said in the video, graciously available online for those interested in the subject (and the principles within it apply to everybody).

If true that you have HIV, then you are humbled and should have big compassion on those who chose a promiscuous lifestyle in their past , gay or straight. There are many websites by those who have escaped a promiscuous life.

Yeshua understood and had compassion on the woman caught in the act of adultery, but he encouraged her to go and sin no more - he didn't make excuses for her to continue to live a lie and he doesn't want us to confuse pardon with permission. Many of us are most grateful for such amazing grace - forgiveness and the opportunity to go and grow and overcome, so help us God.

You question the statement "once gay always gay" and in making your point you compare "once an adulterer, always and adulterer" and then "once a sinner, always a sinner"...

Are you sure that's the comparison you want to make? Can man stop being a sinner?

And the greatest of these is love one another as you love yourself. Go ahead and make any changes you need to David, I'm sure He won't mind.

Any statement I make is the opinion of me exercising my first amendment right to freedom of speech. Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and is generally permitted.

OMG

I can't believe people still read David's posts.

The Lord finds the strangest places in which to work miracles.
