Re: Homosexuality and destroying faith

There is NOTHING wrong with Homosexuality. All of you who say there is, is arrogant, close minded, and intolerant. I'm going to need more than your word on this, sorry. Jesus, in my opinion never spoke against it, nor should you. We don't know if Jesus ever directly addressed it(remember, the Gospe...

Re: Homosexuality and destroying faith

Well, the right question to ask is not "do I like what he's saying," but rather "is what he saying true?" And the best way to determine that is to look at the two important properties of his argument, philosophically speaking -- soundness and validity. If you're lucky, the argument will also be coge...

Re: Homosexuality and destroying faith

Agree 100% BUT such debates concerning topics related to religion almost always end up in some form of "I know what God wants". I don't see how this is a bad thing. Christianity is considered a revealed religion by its followers. One of the central beliefs without which Christianity doesn't even ma...

Re: Homosexuality and destroying faith

As for brow beating gays, I do not know any Christians like that. I love gay people as much as I love anyone. Do you personally know any (brow beaters)? Are you referring to most Christians' opposition to gay marriage? The use of the term "browbeat" is almost always a card played for emotional effe...

Re: The washing of feet

As August pointed out in context, Lazarus (Mary's brother) had just recently been raised from the dead, by all accounts a high point in the public ministry of Jesus, and part of Mary's actions can be perceived in reaction to the emotions of that event which had only just recently occured. Different...

Hello. Now that you've heard from all those people above, maybe it'll help for you to hear from someone who's actually been there, and who still occasionally struggles with it. Hey!

No.

The woman is sleeping and dreaming about her lover and when they're about to have sex she wakes up and finds him gone.

The Song is about a married couple anyways so they wouldn't be held to the abstinence standard that unmarried people are.

Happiness can be, but is not always, good. Smoking cigarettes makes some people happy. It is not good. Getting drunk makes some people happy. It is not good. A variety of drugs can make people happy, but they're not good. There's a host of sexual behaviors that many find fun to engage in, but which ...

If the deification of man was the only example of heretical doctrine among Mormons, you might have a point. A very tenuous point since the Bible is very vague on the issue(we know in morality and righteousness, but anything beyond that we can only guess), but a point nonetheless. It's not the only h...

This looks sticky at first, but let's look at the facts. God forbid murder, but allowed killing in self-defense and in defense of others, most notably when someone was trespassing. He also allows killing under some other specific circumstances that don't come up much nowadays unless you're in the mi...

Homosexuals can seek treatment to come to terms with their sexuality but they cant seek treatment to change something that was unchosen and unchangeable. That is the current position of MAINSTREAM medical associations (as opposed to homophobic little "Christian" hate groups such as the nonsense tha...

The ACLU is anything but an advocate of civil liberties. The only reason they're opposed to abstinence programs is that a lot of the people behind the programs happen to be Christian. It has nothing to do with the merits(or lack thereof) of the programs themselves. We've been teaching comprehensive ...

How do I unsubscribe?

I feel so weird. This is the first time I've ever had to ask this question on a forum. First, I already checked the FAQs and didn't see anything addressing this, so I'll ask here. How do I unsubscribe from a topic? None of the links at top seem to take me to a list of my subscribed threads. There is...
