You realize that your judgemental attitude towards other folks are going to see you lead the charge into hell. Oh yeah, what about the over 50% of evangelicals/born again "Christians" who get divorced? They are also hellbound sinners.

Actually if heaven is filled with judgemental folks who condemn and proclaim to know the truth, I would rather be in hell with the nice folk - you know the ones who love and accept people for who they are.

I'm making some popcorn. Would you like some? Don't worry, I'm popping it in a holy microwave that has been blessed by the blood of Jesus. I even cleaned it out today with holy water. Surely, you'll join me, won't you?

Quoting truth from the the Bible is not hatred, even if you find the truth inconvenient.

There is no way to misintrprept the message about homosexuality. If you do not accept it, that is one thing, but don't try to say there is an 'interpreption' of the scripture which condones homosexuality.

Can you tell me how you "interprept" the following verses:

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (English Standard Version)

Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.



Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."


But here is the good news. Homosexuals can inherit the kingdom of God if they come to Christ and leave their lifestyle behind. The key thing is change, you must become new (be born again), and leave behind what you once were:

1 Corinthians 6:11 - "And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God'

You realize in the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts the word used did not refer to anything close to homosexual. You also realize that the actual word homosexual never came into being until the 1800's. How then did it appear in a book written a couple thousand years ago?

There's also no way to misinterpret the message about those who wear clothes of two fabrics or sow two crops in the same field!

Sorry, you're convincing no one of your opinion who doesn't already hold it.
