I see you have a problem accepting facts. Not surprising in this post-truth world Trump has placed you cons in.

To the sinner, the beginning of wisdom is the fear of God.. Jesus said repent of your sins.. all sinners are already condemned.. Their sin condemned them. God hates sin and will not accept sin.. This is why Jesus was sent. To tell them to REPENT. turn from their sin. God's word stands. It is God who made the path . Sin stands between man and God.



God is truthful. His statements are in the bible. One must renounce their sin and accept Jesus as their savior. One cannot accept sin above God. As the bible states. Either you are a child of God or a child of the Devil. Either you hate one and love the other.



I don't condemn anyone.. everyone was condemned because of sin.. it is their choice not mine to stay in condemnation. The word of God is the Judge. It is written.



KJ21
ďHe that believeth in Him is not condemned; but He that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.


19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

Why is it made into such a boogeyman? Why is hate for homosexuality also so often coming from people engaged in sloth and gluttony? Just self hate and theyíre the scapegoats to project onto?

Collectively they act as if Jesus was quoted directly in the Bible saying they should be called out for special treatment. I personally donít know how anyone reads the Bible and comes away with that rather than to approach everyone with love
To God, ask him why He said Homosexuality is an abomination. it is a deviant behavior . It is unnatural to have sex with the same sex. If 99% of people accepted Homosexuality as normal God would not ... Jesus is the same, Yesterday Today and forever. It does not matter how many accept it , it is still an abomination to God. In the last days , good will be proclaimed as bad, and bad proclaimed as good.


Jesus is God. Jesus is the word of God. To create your own god to fit your own belief system is not the true God of the bible. To be a believer is to believe every word of the bible. If you do not, you are not a believer.

In other words, you pretty strongly believe homosexuality is a worse and more severe sin than adultery. This is because God does not view adultery as deviant or as an abomination. However, since God doesn't feel adultery is as serious of a sin as homosexuality, then why does one of the Ten Commandments say "Thou shalt not commit adultery"? It seems both sins are not of an equally severe nature or else that commandment would have said, "Thou shalt not commit adultery and homosexuality".

God doesnít exist.

And you donít get to bring your religion into the public policy space when your motivation is to restrict the civil rights of gay people.

The word that was translated to abomination is תֹּועֵבָה toevah. Which is also used when referring to eating pork or shellfish. So why aren't Christians going after that?

It also calls for executing disobedient children. Where's the push for that?

Which translation of the bible is the word? Because you must choose among man made translations which have differences. Heck what books are canonical? That varies based on man made decisions per denomination. If it's God's perfect word how can entire books be considered both canon and apocryphal by different people who claim the same religion?

You have to study the context that bible verses were written in. Cannot simply read a a verse or two in an english translation at face value.

I wish all such conversion therapy people would come to realize gay people are gay and don't need to be "fixed".

It's more a matter of can't be fixed than needing to be fixed.

That is because the sin of homosexuality is a deviant behavior and not a natural occurance. It is not commonplace.
