Of course everyone has. That is not the point.

The point is, Christians like to tell other people they are going to hell for their sins, but do not believe they are going to hell for their own sins.

There are dozens of acts that the bible calls an 'abomination' that Christians do every day, but the Christians pick one of those in particular and point their fingers at those committing it, and spend most of their lives doing so, in hypocrisy.

Re: why do "Christians " abhor homosexuality because the Bible condemns but most are ok with divorce and remarry when the Bible says it adultery
I'm a Christian and I believe homosexuality is a sin and that God is displeased with it but why is it that the majority of "Christians " believe that it's ok to divorce your spouse and remarry when Jesus himself forbids it ..

The only exception he gave is to the man ....he said if a woman commits fornication (sexual sin) against her husband then the man can remarry but he never addressed the woman

What say ye

It's hardly in the same category, sodomy is an abomination, divorce is relationship breakdown that is annulled by the licence that granted it under man made law.

Christians do not abhor homosexuality because the Bible condemns it. More are not Christian and they abhor it too.
Homosexuality at its core is narcissism and selfishness.
It is sterile and death and can never create life.
It's a deathstyle. It produces no life and so it is what it is - pursuit of sexual thrills and sexual gratification and nothing else. A pleasure of the flesh, non-spiritual and earthly. It's a let's drink and be merry for tomorrow we die attitude.

well whatever we have as personal beliefs, we are free to practice them and to attend a church that teaches them as well. You can always find another church

None of us should be in the business of telling others what to think, we should come to our own conclusions, especially as some marriages are clearly mistakes. Christians are no more perfect that anyone else

Also it is more important that we be equally yoked, and in some cases where one partner either evolves spiritually or regresses spiritually, we should stay married and bear with the other one. Life isn't easy, so what

Probably better make that 100%. Everyone who has ever sat on the same sofa as a woman on her period has sinned. Anyone who has ever worn a poly/cotton blend has sinned. Anyone who has ever worn sneakers has sinned.

That's just scratching the surface. The Bible is a batshit crazy book, written by batshit crazy people.

Deep down inside Christians realize this, which is why they purposely cherry pick which rules to obey and which to ignore, because they KNOW it's really not God's rules. They're just too afraid to commit to the realization they keep stuffed at the bottom of their subconscious because then they'd have to admit to themselves that they may simply cease to exist one day.

Which is why we created religion in the first place isn't it, so we wouldn't have to look our 4 year old kids in the eye and tell them one day they, and everyone they love, are going to die.

And when the day comes, even though I don't believe it, I'll probably tell my boys that they are going to Heaven to be with their dog, their grandparents, and us, just so I don't have to watch their hearts break.

We keep the world in a state of constant ruin just so we can buy our children a few more years of innocence.

I on the other hand drink to much sometimes ....the. Bible says that it's wrong and I admit that it's wrong but no matter what I do or where I go when I pass on ...the Word of God is still true

I've read what the bible says and I know who it says will not enter into the Kingdom of Heaven

When I was 22 I fell in love with a woman who was 42 and had previously been married and her husband divorced her just because

We wanted to get married and spend our lives together but we both believed what the Bible said about getting remarried when divorce is involved

She had been divorced and the bible said she couldn't be remarried .... We both believed what the Bible said so we ended our relationship after 3 years ...it was absolutely the hardest thing I've ever done ... I grew up as an abused child verbally and physically and without love from my parents ...this lady showed me unconditional love and I would've crossed a thousand deserts just to spend one hour with her ...

Yet my conscious wouldn't let me because I knew that the Word of God was true and that God was displeased with the relationship

So knowing how my conscious constantly reminded me of how God viewed the relationship I was in and that I was convicted in my heart that Gods Word is true .....I was just curious to how other "Christians " deal with it in their conscious ....do they believe it's wrong because the Bible says adulteress relationships are wrong ? ...do they believe the Bible was wrong on that subject ? .... do they believe that those scriptures don't apply to them ?

In all honesty I am just curious

I sin daily ...I am not their judge ...nor was I trying to be judgmental...I apologize if I came across that way ....I see how I did come across like that ...forgive me

Re: why do "Christians " abhor homosexuality because the Bible condemns but most are ok with divorce and remarry when the Bible says it adultery
OP, I agree with your original assessment. To many so called Christians make excuses fir divorce and remarriage. The apostle Paul was very clear in 1 Cor. 7:10 But to the married I give instructions, *not I, but the Lord, that the wife should not leave her husband 11 (but if she does leave, she must remain unmarried, or else be reconciled to her husband), and that the husband should not divorce his wife.

With regards to God hating sin, yes that's very clear but I've often wondered why God judged Sodom and Gomorrah so harshly?
Was it not due to their sexual misconduct?

The bible also clearly declares that NO adulterer shall enter in the Kingdom of Heaven
 Quoting: Simple_Man


If God is all loving, then there has to be forgiveness for one's humanly transgressions, surely. If no forgiveness is forthcoming, then why care what God thinks or wants from me?

I was raised Protestant. Dad was the choir director and Mom sang in the choir. At one point in the early 70's Mom decided she couldn't believe in the church any longer. The passage (or sermon that one Sunday) that she couldn't get past was:

“God loves your children even more than you do.”

What my Mom mused on after hearing that - was that she loved myself and my brother so much that there was no 'sin' we might commit, small or large that she could ever imagine letting us burn in hell fire for all eternity to 'pay for it'. Her mother's heart could not entertain that edict from God, at all.

There is forgiveness, but one has to own their behaviors and ask for it. God says "Repent and turn", and "The beginning of wisdom is to revere God and eschew wickedness".
Just as a mother loves her child, there is punishment if he or she turns to wickedness and suffers prison or death.

God is merciful, but He is also just; people have trouble with that "just" part

Doesn't matter .....neither a homosexual or an adulterer will enter into the Kingdom of. Heaven.....that's what the inspired Word of God in the Bible says

They just don't ....and they are hypocrites

Actually it goes further than that. If you look at a women with lust it is sin. The NT, outside of Paul, doesn't address homosexuality directly, but one can infer that even the thought is a sin. Of coarse sin is sin. You have to repent of all of it.

God doesn't negotiate with sin. He condemns it outright. If you are not going to stand against sin, then you are abetting sin.

We are called to stand strong against sinfulness in our lands. We are to be salt and light, not going along and not judging so that we can be friendly to everyone. Jesus was not "nice". He told the sinners they were sinning. Often he said, O perverse generation, how much longer do I have to suffer you. He called a spade a spade and he didn't allow people to say that sin didn't matter because God would just forgive all sin.

No, he would forgive the sin when asked, but then he would always say to the person, Go and sin no more.

You try to shut up Christians by telling us not to judge, but we are called to judge and to refute the sinfulness of this world in our generation. We are called to take a stand and when something is wrong, we are to say that it's wrong and not go along with it.
Because Christians have been going along and getting along for 50 + years now, Divorce is rampant and children are no longer being taught about God in the schools. Now, they want to teach our children about the evil mohammed, but not about Jesus Christ. We are having to homeschool our children to keep them from being taught that homosexuality is not only normal, but something desirable. We are having to fight to keep men out of the women's restrooms.

If Christians stood up together and said NO! to these sinful behaviors, there would be less room for the evil to take root in our society and our children would be listening to us and not to rock and roll bands. Our children would think of the things of God everyday and not comic books. But we are weak and have been talked down, strung out chasing dollar bills and have gotten lazy where it counts. Now children are being murdered to the tune of 3500 per day in abortions and the young people don't take marriage seriously at all.

We have a problem and divorce is certainly one part of that problem but so is homosexuality.

I can tell you right now that 85% of the current living population wouldn't get into heaven based on the rules of the bible.

Just saying.

And probably only 2% of the remainder deserve 'Heaven' if at all!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 58690433


got news for ya, 0 per cent 'deserve" Heaven, so no hope for the rest of you either, without a wedding garment
 Quoting: furPete'sSake


But your 'religion' gets you a V.I.P. pass, right?

Wake up honey....
 Quoting: ANHEDONIC


what pass would that be? I had to repent and own my sins, which are considerable by the way, just like everybody else. Honey? lol
Jesus loves me, this I know
for the bible tells me so

Calm seas do not a sailor make,
Nor easy horses, a horseman.

Nor easy believing, a Christian

I'm a Christian and I believe homosexuality is a sin and that God is displeased with it but why is it that the majority of "Christians " believe that it's ok to divorce your spouse and remarry when Jesus himself forbids it ..

The only exception he gave is to the man ....he said if a woman commits fornication (sexual sin) against her husband then the man can remarry but he never addressed the woman

What say ye
 Quoting: Simple_Man


being Gay is not a sin... its a abomination
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 15888117


Doesn't matter .....neither a homosexual or an adulterer will enter into the Kingdom of. Heaven.....that's what the inspired Word of God in the Bible says

That's not what I said

That's what the bible said

You either believe or you don't

And most professing Christians don't believe what Jesus taught about adultery

They just don't ....and they are hypocrites
 Quoting: Simple_Man


Actually it goes further than that. If you look at a women with lust it is sin. The NT, outside of Paul, doesn't address homosexuality directly, but one can infer that even the thought is a sin. Of coarse sin is sin. You have to repent of all of it.
 Quoting: dschis1000


Paul in Romans 1 addresses homosexuality adequately for the entire NT.
