I always get confused but where exactly in the bible does is it say homosexuality is a sin. It seems to me that's just what the churches are saying. I have never actually come upon that in the bible, therefore isn't it the word of the church and not the word of god? It seems to me the church is saying things that aren't there to use for there own purposes.
Most if any on this post are going to believe its in the bible! If its in black and white they still don't care.To them its not there! 1 Corinthians 6:9 they don't use our modern words but think about it, they don't use the word sex either but come together things like that. Unless you've studied word studies you might not know this. Its there but as I said regardless most if not all on this debate will not believe it. That's there choice though. Most here think I am a hateful uncaring person because I don't want to be gay or I dont' think its a good choice. The church isn't against gay people but yes They don't agree for obvious reasons to them. They wouldn't be very good at being a christian if they only accepted parts of the bible they want to! I am sure from what I've seen here no one will believe this is what it's saying in 1 Corinthians and I won't get into it any further. This does not include people who have done these things but have ask for forgiveness. If they ask for forgivness, then they are forgiven. I won't respond anymore to this because I know its going get wacked down with deceptive words, so subtle it is!! I am not here to change people. I can't even change myself but I think other opinions desire a fair shake too, especially on a debate. SO go ahead people twist my words, call me wrong whatever in the end if you look closely its only to justify your belief as well.
Well why didn't he then? Mary Magdeline had 7 demons and she was a prostitute. People consider her unclean but he didn't care what they thought he just cared about delivering her. He just went to the source of her trouble.
I didn't write the book. But if God is say perchance right then It can't be biological because why would he say " Its wrong'" and then create you to be born that way. If that were true Then God would be cruel. Wouldn't he? Why do I have to agree that Homesexuality is the right thing to do if I don't think it is just to make people happy!! I don't hate gays, if they want to live that lifestyle that is their free will!
also if you studied theology you would know that a lot of the morallity issues were put into the bible by men struggling with thier own issues. god did not write that. and god did create gay people. he created you. you are being hateful...is that a mistake of his? or satan's influence? it doesnt matter. you should always work thru whatever you are dealt with a loving personallity towards all living things.
god put them here on earth for you to enjoy. not to judge and never learn about.
OH I get now your bible isn't the same as mine! Okay that explains your comments. Well I don't even want to get into that! I heard homosexuals have their own bible. Is that true? Don't mean anything by this but I read it somewhere that they took out certain scriptures pertaining to gays? I don't hate gays!! IF you are gay I don't hate you! I don't hate anyone!!
I know you don't believe as I do and thats okay!! I wasn't referring to my ways, like I said I didn't write it. I was referring to his ways. I mean I get hurt when I do something wrong and I know I shouldn't have done it or said it and I have to ask God to forgive me. Mainly cause I did something that hurt him and me. I still dont see why I have to accept it if My beliefs are not accepted. You don't have to accept my beliefs for me to accept you.I believe Love is of most importance as you have pointed out. I really do but I can't ignore other parts for the sake of love. To me it doesn't add up. Again I know we differ there and again that is okay!
do a search on amazon. they have a lot books on this. you can write down the title. take it to your local library. if they dont have it there...most librarys are set up on a system where they call another library and have it sent to them so you can get it.
well what would you call thinking lower of someone?
i call that hate.
i do not think lower of you. i just see a lot of confusion and and fear in your posts. you seem lost and longing for safety and purity.
that cannot be found outside of you. you must look within yourself.
I think that one should be more focused on the *good in people*
rather than over focusing on what we think they should be.
I have known very hateful persons of many religions and from many
I have also known some of the kindest people from many avenues in life.
If you keep needing it in a religious form that is sad..
but even your Jesus said Forgive them for they know not what they do ..
(meaning overlook their actions lol they are ignorant as babies
in understanding. They can't help them selves with their belief-hate
blinders on .
