Re: The Biblical position on Homosexuality and Gay marriage
Perversion falls into the domain of good and evil. If we judge we will be judged. Only God can judge.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1018225


God has judged, and commanded us to judge right from wrong so we know how to avoid sin. We're not talking about judging someone's eternal destination here, but whether a practice is sin or not. That's the kind of judging we MUST do. It would be nonsense to say Christians are not to discern between good and evil!
 Quoting: Keep2theCode


Jesus told us not to judge but simply to follow rules.
Mathew 7:1 "Judge not, that you be not judged."
John 8:7 "When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1018225


Jesus also rebuked people for not discerning the time of his coming. He told his disciples to be as cunning as serpents but innocent as doves. He told the woman who was to be put to death by stoning to "go, and SIN NO MORE". There is no way to avoid sin without judging/discerning good and evil.

You are doing what's called "helicopter theology", where you lift snippets out of context and drop them in some other context. You are also completely ignoring the type of judgment we are to do as opposed to judging a person's final destination.
 Quoting: Keep2theCode


Judgement is judgement.
Would you stone a gay, or a whore?
If you believe that is the will of your God why don't you?
It says in several verses to kill them right?
That is the old way isn't it?
Do you believe it would be wrong for you to kill them?
Because it would be evil to kill them?
Is it evil to follow the serpent and commit the very first sin?
Is it better to judge and be judged, or to judge not?

Why does it matter what the bible says? It is only a record of bronze age history, laws and superstitions. They had no scientific knowledge to speak of. Those bronze age people had no understanding of the mechanics of reproduction beyond the sex act itself. The biblical position is irrelevant in the face of advancing knowledge.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 27051441


The Bible actually holds the key to happiness and freedom from torment in this world as well as the next.
The greatest torments man faces come from within.
We set ourselves as Gods thinking we know all the answers.
Instead of thinking in terms of is or isn't there a God ask yourself this. What is good and evil? Can it be measured by any rigorous method? How can whats good to one person be bad to another? The answer is there is no way for man to truly understand good and evil and we were tricked into accepting it by the devil.
The concept of it leads to judgements.
Judgements lead to suffering.
Jesus came to wash away all of our sins, and the first sin is the knowledge of good and evil.
The laws of the Bible lead us to a nice simple existence free from self inflicted suffering.
The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1018225


Nothing of what you assert here has anything to do with the mechanics of homosexuality. Good and evil are ethical judgements made by the individual according to their own needs and experience. From my point of view anytime someone attempts to impose their view and desires on me, they are doing evil. Personally I found the bible contradictory and confusing. Along with some spectacular beauty and wisdom it also contains filth and mind stultifying superstition. Its confusion has been used to manipulate people and impose the will of the few upon the many. The laws of the bible are not simple. There are complex rules about cleanliness, slaughter and sexual relations. The apparently simple words of wisdom the Jesus character is reputed to have spoken are actually very complex for the analytical person. Even the "golden rule" requires us to carefully analyze our own best interests when we decide upon how to treat another person. They can be likened to Asimov's 3 laws of robotics, which while simply stated, lead to very complex decision making processes.

Here again you want to exclude any definition of judging you don't like. Here again you want to lump Israel's national laws with the church in the age of grace. Here again you try to force a false dilemma. You might as well give it up, I won't fall for any of that.

Jesus said to be both at the same time; you'll have to go to Him if you have a problem with that. Why do you ignore the wise as serpents part?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1018225


We DON'T have it within ourselves; we use the BIBLE to get our standards. The Bible is written so that we know what God wants, what is right and wrong. Even the NT says that the OT was written for us as examples and lessons to learn.

Seriously, you're just throwing around disjointed ideas and bits of scripture and hoping something sticks to the wall. Come back with a coherent argument and I might respond again. Otherwise I'll just ignore you.

Re: The Biblical position on Homosexuality and Gay marriage
Do you feel you have a right to judge anyone?
Do you think you really know the difference between right and wrong?
If you are confused follow the ten commandments and don't kill anyone.
If you wish to really follow God then spit out the deceit of Satan and accept that only God can judge because only God can truly understand the difference between good and evil.

It is very simple and coherent.
The Bible tells us rules.
The first rule man broke was to take the knowledge of good and evil.
This opened our minds to other sins.
God kicks us out of the garden for this.
Man is given rules to follow and is caused to suffer if he breaks the rules.
Jesus comes announced by John the baptist.
Jesus came and fulfilled the prophesies.
Jesus taught us how to follow him and be as God intended us to be.
The most important occurrence in the new testament is forgiveness.
Jesus died and wiped away our sins.
The only people that Jesus ever judged in the new testament were the money changers in the church using God for profit.
All are sinners, but Jesus washes away our sins.
Once we are born again we are clean and free of sin.
John 3:17 "God sent not his son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through him may have everlasting life".
Jesus is not about judgement he is about forgiveness.
Man is capable of being free from sin and clean if you just let go of all of them.
What was the first sin that was passed from generation to generation? The knowledge of good and evil.
Its simple you can be as pure as a dove, and as cunning as a serpent without embracing the lies of the devil.

I will not engage in homosexual activity because I was born a heterosexual and find thoughts of homosexual activity disgusting and nauseating. Judgement is a higher intellectual activity which requires the taking in and balancing of information. It is my right and duty to judge and discriminate carefully when I hire people for my company. If you defer judgement to an outside agency you are in danger of not making the best decision and accepting a lower level of service. Each person lives within the confines of their own imagination and is responsible to themselves and while I feel they should not allow others to impose upon them, I would not impose that view on any other person. A follower of Jesus has a first responsibility to analyze his teachings and measure their behavior by it. The example of a good person they become is far louder than any little words they may speak. In fact often for many people speaking words is a substitute for them doing the right thing.

Did you know there are approximately 300,000 Christian churches in the United States?
Pornography, homosexuality, lewdness, drunkenness, divorce, prostitution, murder, rape, theft are all rampant in the United States, although we have many laws to forbid many of these practices.

All it would take is a simple reformation of the people who want to follow Jesus to lead by example and the crime would drop.

Re: The Biblical position on Homosexuality and Gay marriage
Love thy enemy.
Turn the other cheek.
Do not judge.
Be like minded.
Do not resist authority, even.
Respect everyone else.

Lead them to the truth.
BUT REBUKE EVERYONE WHO BREAKS THE LAW OF GOD.
Do not be partakers of her sin.
Do not drink of the cup of her fornications, LEST YOU WILL DRINK THE CUP OF THE WRATH OF GOD.

The behaviour imperative is clear: rebuke and reproach them for their behavior and teach them the truth, if they not comply, do not partake on their sins. Do not be part of their system.

Its the Bible clearly teaching: YOU WILL NOT "ADDAPT". YOU WILL NOT "ACCEPT THEM", YOU WILL NOT "BECOME LIKE THEM". YOU WILL NOT LIVE AMONGST THEM OR BE PART OF THEIR BEAST SYSTEM.

The Judgement comes when the Christians are so surrounded that they cannot really keep the behavior taught by God anymore, lest they be killed.

The thing is the Bible teachings for Christians are clear, you do not do this, you do not do that, but when people around ARE WRONG, they are wrong and you will not comply with them, you will not partake on their sin.

When God means, you do not Judge. Its basically saying "Because only I am the Judge".

So people are mixing up "judgement" with reproach and rebuking.

"Oh, you do not comply to our social rules you are a fundamentalist intolerant judgemental primitive uncivilized christian".

This is their wording strategy. But the Bible said it would happen, it happened before and so on. Christians knows that homosexualism is inherently an abomination.

No amount of sugar coating

"Oh, homosexuals love too"

No amount of "human thinking" standards

"The science/medicine/psychology has proven that their biologic genre do not match their psychologic genre"

The point of life according to the KJV Bible doctrine is not to love life.

"Homossexuals have the right to be happy too"

Every single argument they can come up with falls short under the Truth, the Word of God.

Re: The Biblical position on Homosexuality and Gay marriage
Let us set the record straight here and NOW as to the Biblical position on homosexuality and the “Gay” rights issues.



Its really pretty simple and any reasonable person can only come to one conclusion :



THE BIBLE CLEARLY states, “You shall not lie with a male as with

a woman; it is an abomination.” (Leviticus) 18:22



THE BIBLE CLEARLY, “If a man lies with a male as

with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death,

their blood is upon them.” Leviticus 20:13





Such behavior is prohibited and is even considered an abomination in the eyes of God.



The story in the Bible of Sodom and Gomorrah lets us know what God thinks about

 Quoting: Homosexual Gang Rape 27046337


Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from you and understand why you would support a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination... End of debate.

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?

3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.

4. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is, my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2. clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?

6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Are there 'degrees' of abomination?

7. Lev.21:20 states that I may ! not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle- room here?

8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair, like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)

I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.

Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Re: The Biblical position on Homosexuality and Gay marriage
The Bible describe the behaviours of angels.

Angels do not judge. But they only rebuke.


When Gabriel came to Zachariah, father of John the Baptist to tell him he would have a child.

He didnt initially believed Gabriel, Gabriel then rebuked him for that.


Thats not Judgement.

I've started. It's your turn to explain why certain parts of Leviticus matter while others don't. Feel free to include any quotes from Jesus regarding homosexuality while you're at it - assuming you can find any.

Re: The Biblical position on Homosexuality and Gay marriage
Poor findings. None of them close by what really happens if two of the same sex resolve their time in having sex.

Do they in freedom or have fear. There that all-resolving-formula God is to mess with.

To insist and to argue ernestly with such rather tired sentences, at base and not as decoration, that just unveils a stubborn mentality or to a suffering fear.

But where the fear is, there is -

Do you think you really know the difference between right and wrong?
If you are confused follow the ten commandments and don't kill anyone.
If you wish to really follow God then spit out the deceit of Satan and accept that only God can judge because only God can truly understand the difference between good and evil.

Re: The Biblical position on Homosexuality and Gay marriage
Let us set the record straight here and NOW as to the Biblical position on homosexuality and the “Gay” rights issues.



Its really pretty simple and any reasonable person can only come to one conclusion :



THE BIBLE CLEARLY states, “You shall not lie with a male as with

a woman; it is an abomination.” (Leviticus) 18:22



THE BIBLE CLEARLY, “If a man lies with a male as

with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death,

their blood is upon them.” Leviticus 20:13





Such behavior is prohibited and is even considered an abomination in the eyes of God.



The story in the Bible of Sodom and Gomorrah lets us know what God thinks about

homosexuality. Indeed, it is from this story that the term Sodomy came to represent homosexual behavior. This story in Genesis tells us that the cities inhabitants encircled Lot’s house and demanded that he send out his guests to be homosexually raped. Gay-rights organization or individual, at this point are not calling for the legalisation of of such behavior nor do they publicly call for, or condone violent homosexual gang rape, not yet at least.

In Biblical Sodom it was normal and accepted as the way of life. This just shows how far this degradation can go.

I posted this only to discuss the Biblical prohibition on homosexuality


AND HOW MARRAIGE IS A RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION AND GOVERNMENT HAS NO PLACE IN IT OR IN THE BEDROOM FOR THAT MATTER


As far as explaining all the laws of the Torah
thats another matter

1) Employment to day is worse than "Biblical slavery"

2) McDonalds don't pay enough

3)If she wants it she will tell you the truth

4)Invite the neighbors to the Barbq
if they are still upset as they are vegans
roast tofu

5)Biblical death penalty has not been active since end of first Temple, Capitol cases are tried only by the court of 71 judges who include Prophets. There has been none since beginning of 2nd temple period,
BOTTOM LIKE IS TIMES HAVE CHANGE-THERE IS NO PROPHETS OR COURT OF 71 AT THIS TIME

6)Both do spiritual and, or physical damage
both are destructive in different ways


7)Its referring to descendents of Ahron who approach the Alter,the blemishes are defined and perfect vision is not required


8)This transgression does not entail physical death
but these hairs "can" act as antennea for spiritual inspiration and insight, by cutting them they dont work as well

9)The "spiritual" impurity is only transmitted by the animal itself but not its finished tanned hides ie FOOTBALL
so no problem- SPIRITUAL DEFILEMENT WAS VERY RELEVANT IN THE PROPHETIC PERIOD - NOW NOT SO MUCH

10) Its not good to mix plant, GIVE THEM SPACE TO GROW
its not a physical thing as much as spiritual.
cotton/polyester blend is fine , it is wool and linen mixture that block flow of spiritual energy
Linen is VERY conductive-this commandment is like mixed seed in nature

true
" God's word is eternal and unchanging"

BUT ONE MUST UNDERSTAND HOW IT APPLIES
THIS REQUIRES THE "ORAL LAW"

I says in the Bible :

"Speak to the Israelites and say to them: 'Throughout the generations to come you are to make fringes on the corners of your garments, with a blue cord on each fringe."

How do you make fringes ?

ONLY BY ORAL LAW CAN YOU KNOW
THE WHOLE BIBLE IS LIKE A INDEX TO THE WEALTH
OF THE ORAL TRADITION WHICH EXPLAINS IT
OTHERWISE ONE CAN TELL MUCH FROM WHAT THE BIBLE IS TELLING
YOU TO DO !

MANY OF THE ANSWERS YOU SEEK
or maybe not

Perverts choose unhealthy activity and when they become diseased the burden is put on society as a whole. Other people should not have to pay their mental problems and acts of perversion. It is not hip, cute or gay, it is a sickness.
