Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

People who CHOOSE to live this way cannot have any place in heaven Where's your proof that homosexuality is a choice? I certainly don't "choose" to be heterosexual, nor do/did I choose to be a sinner. Sin is in me and as one, deserving of death whether the sin is thinking about taking a penny or a ...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

We should always be careful in interpreting OT passages with terms like "abomination" and such. Strong wording was made to make a point of course, but lets remember that the only abomination in regards to homosexuality is Man laying with man, are we then to assume that women with women was NOT an a...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

Dave, you're reading into scripture AGAIN! Where in scripture, did God pronounce creation as "perfect"? I and many others would agree that part of the "very good" creation, is ecosystems. In order for there to be life, there must be death. Plants let off oxygen and are eaten, so that animals may li...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

I think that this discussion has proved how interpretation can lead to different opinions, very different opinions . This is why most if the times I don't interpret scripture by myself:) , maybe there was someone that was given the authority to interpret scripture:) No. God gave MANKIND the Bible t...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

We should not read things into scripture to make sinful lifestyles more palatable the same we should not read into the Genesis account of Creation ' millions of years ' to make it more palatable with popular secular stellar evolutionary thought. Ya just had to go there didn't ya! :poke: You betcha ...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

............... I won't argue whether or not one can be a Christian and homosexual, that is for Christ to judge and decide. I do believe that IF one accepts the HS into our lives that the sins we have done and are still in us to do, CAN be overcome. Paul, The Bible doesnt condemn all critical think...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

Not on the subject of Sin and why Christ came to earth to conquer its affect on our life . He came to give us power OVER being addicted to sin lifestyles like homosexuality and heterosexual casual sex for instance. So much so that in 1 Cor. 5 we are commanded to stay away from those who say they ar...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

Im saying that 'a lifestyle of homosexuality' whether one says he has recieved Christ or not, cannot enter Heaven. What if someone stumbles, from time to time, with his sin? Would King David be in heaven, under your interpretation? He was an adulterer and murderer. but the reason why Christ came to...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

Dave, I'm simply saying that we still struggle against our sinful nature, even though we are new creatures in Christ. I can't tell you how often I ask God to forgive me for sinning. Until my redemption is complete, I will still struggle with sin. I'm not going to claim that once someone who was a h...

Re: Homosexuality is not a sin

Ok, good Dave. Thanks for answering my question, and see if you can follow what I'm thinking here. I think the way you're interpreting those scriptures is by plain reading. Kinda like one would read a news article in the newspaper. I don't think reading these verses this way is consistent with what...
