How about cracking a Bible for once since you claim to be a Christian...and read ALL the Scriptures, not just the ones you like. Yes, God is love, but He also has moral boundaries we must follow.

Arsenokoites strictly means prostitute or male prostitute, male prostitute that has sex with men. <gag>

Catamite strictly means boy prostitute. <gag>

p.s. the original bible had no dictionary. It was added by bias, unloving, and prejudice humans.

How can someone say it comes from genes when they're doing a brainscan? Brainscans do not look at genetics. They look at the structure/form of a brain. It's just like an Xray
Just out of curiosity, are you in the medical profession? it's quite obvious that you are not, or you would realize that some people have different 'enlargements' and/or 'shrinkage' in certain parts of the brain. Some areas are better developed and some areas are under developed. These areas can affect different parts of the personality as well as traits etc. Brainscans/CTs/PETs/MRI/MRA can detect these.

Yes, I read it. That is your interpretation. Once again, I will say that personal interpretation is dangerous. Just look at the differences of opinion on this board. You obviously missed my post in the other board of there being more important things in this world. <shakes head and sighs>

That isn't the original meaning of the word nor how it was used in those times.

Because he was converting Jews and Gentiles.

I can ask you the same question.

But to say I got cancer from hereditary from a doctor looking at my xray is ridiculous. That's not how they detect it in my genes.

It is not interpretation.

The word literally means male prostitute and is related to those times as male prostitute.
