Read that slowly and with understanding.

Because the Bible speaks SEVERAL ways about Gos, some of which are blatantly vicious. I don't think it is appropriate to speak about God that way and prefer the picture developed much later in Judaism and presented in its fulness by Jesus.

Sure...

The prophecy of old was written by men OTHER people claim were inspired by God to write.


I should add that there is no mention of any such inspiration for the New Testament.

The verse you quoted does NOT refute the other poster.

I should add, yes it does. 2 Tim. 3:16 and 2 Peter 1:20

Those are both about the Old Testament.

I see you have resorted to childish behavior, a clear sign you are avoiding the unpleasant truth.
You simply do not wish to see the answer.

What unpleasant truth? God love couples with robust relationships. Such relationships are hardly childish. People with robust relationships have little time to obsess about the sexual practices of others.

I highly recommend you and the Mrs. enjoy a robust relationship. That way you spend less time thinking about your neighbors and their relationships.

You haven't?

How come?

It is against the law and Christians should always obey the law, even man's laws.

These things are what the scriptures and God commands. Are we going to listen to the comments of a poster by the name of omega2xx - one who denies the inerrancy of the scriptures and God?

So answer the question; are we to believe 2 errant sinners or God?
Alright, for starters, the Bible is NOT God.

Moreover, the men who wrote the Bible were also 'errant sinners' since they were human. We really DO need to get this fact clear in our minds before we can continue with any meaningful discussion. The Bible authors were human! The Bible authors were 'errant sinners'!

Please, omega2xx, read my previous post (above) again and respond to it accordingly. Does your "Book God" instruct you to stone to death Sabbath abrogators, disobedient children, adulterous women and non-virgin brides or doesn't it? From my reading of the Bible it sure does! In fact, only those who 'deny the scripture', as you put it, would say that it does not.

It's interesting that you use the term "robust" instead of homosexual, which is the subject of this thread.

Peter, who walked with Jesus, says otherwise, regarding scripture.

2 Peter 1:20

You must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation of things.

Robust relationship means just that. A relationship between two people that is full and vigorous.

You poor thing. You need an explanation for the obvious.

Hold on.. I am having a moment of silence for you....

If you have your own robust relationship, you will not have time to delve into the relationships of your brothers and sisters regardless of their personal practices.

I recommend a robust relationship for you, and the Mrs, or your lady friend, and every other fundamentalist ideologue. It will occupy your time to your benefit. God agrees with me.
