The subject is what God wants Bryan to do. Bryan asked, "What does God say?" I told him what God says.

My liberal theology? My belief in God is as solid as God's belief in me. It is simply the nature of our friendship, and our journey together.

I am unconcerned if you understand, or share our belief.

For all their protestations about how they speak against homosexuality out of love and concern for those who are homosexual, I believe this post from page one of this thread goes right to the heart of what most fundamentalists REALLY are concerned about...

It's all about fear and self-preservation, based on the belief that God hates homosexuality and will destroy a nation that does not actively discriminate against people who are gay.

Bingo! Can you believe that people think this way about God and yet they HAVE read what Jesus said about Him?

Because total strangers have invested themselves in the sexual practices, and relationships of others. I think they should get their own relationships, and engage in their own sexual practices.

So true. They believe God created the Universe, and want to keep God contained within the beliefs of ancient man. Astonishing.

No, the subject is "Two Ministers say Homosexual is ok". Bryan asked, "What does God say?" So, what does God say about homosexuality?

I think the question should be:

"What does THIS book written by men say that God says about homosexuality?"

Are you or Bryan homosexual, or is someone who is homosexual asking you to find out what God says? Is that why you are asking Ronkon?

I stated what God says about it. You simply do not wish to believe me. As if have stated. I am unconcerned.

You and Bryan and others are far too interested in the sexual practices of others.


I think you should engage in a robust sexual relationship of your own. That way, you would be putting your energies toward Mrs.jimmiej where they belong, and God agrees with me.

I am sure the Mrs. would agree with me, too.

The world hates the truth Jesus brought.
