An Iowa City Baptist church has become the first in the state to join a national association that advocates for the inclusion of LGBT people, and the church likely is the first of its kind in Iowa to allow same-sex couples to marry.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; (Rom. 1:26,27)

****

The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.(1Cor.6:9,10)

****

19 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness,
20 Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies,
21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.(Gal. 5:19-21)

****

Let us look at page 22 of The Standard Manual For Baptist Churches by Edward T. Hiscox.

"It is most likely that in the Apostolic age when

there was but `one Lord,

one faith,

and one baptism,'

and no differing denominations existed,

The baptism of a convert by that very act constituted him a member of the church, and at once endowed him with all the rights and privileges of full membership. In that sense,'baptism was the door into the church.

' Now it is different:(emp. mine, hll) and while the churches are desirous of receiving members, they are wary and cautious that they do not receive unworthy persons."

****

*Now it is different! Who made if different?

Making it different is warned against in Rev. 22:18-19; Gal. 1:6-9; 1 Cor. 4:6; 2 John 9-11; etc.

If it is different now than it was in the first century, those who changed it must be held responsible for violating what is taught in these passages.

The day it became different to Baptists was the day Baptist doctrine began!

Now that we can see the origin of Baptist doctrine of this subject, let us learn something about the nature of the doctrine itself.

Well you got the judgement passages from Paul memorized. Now how about looking at CHRIST'S MESSAGE!
Matthew 5:11
"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.
Matthew 25:31-46
New International Version (NIV)
The Sheep and the Goats
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right,‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left,‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Interesting passages but I suspect you don't get their messages properly. You ought to read the first chapter of Romans, which speaks with great clarity about the sin of homosexuality. The poster to whom you addressed the above post did well in posting what he did. This unholy Baptist Church in Iowa City is not serving God but evil. They bring shame on the name of Baptist and on Christianity. I don't care whom it offends, but the plain fact is that God does not approve of homosexuality so this church will one day answer for this blatant disregard for his laws.

Been there, done that, suggest you might want to actually read it in its entirety. It actually speaks with great clarity about the sin of idolatry, professing yourself to be smarter than God Himself. He doesn't like such behavior and punishes you for it. He gives you over to a depraved mind, which is a whole laundry list of activities that Paul says good Christians shouldn't be doing, you're probably on it several times yourself. Then in Chapter 2, Paul warns Christians about being judgmental of others, like I said, we all make his list. It gives disapproval of same sex sex acts, not homosexuality and Paul also disapproved of opposite sex sex acts.

A regurgitation of misinterpreted and mistranslated Bible verses as proof God agrees with your prayer that "homosexuality" is a sin.

Actually 1st Romans doesn't really mention any possible same sex activity. It's a general outline of what comes in chapter two where Saul begins to berate the early christians of Rome for being such back biters, gossips, and nit-pickers. Much like the kinds of people we generally see on the religious right these daysd in this country.

Good Lord E.S. I'm over 50 and I am VERY familiar with what parts of the Bible even HINT at same sex activity. The passage you refer to is in chapter 3!

So take your cocky smirkiness and go back and RE-READ Romans BEFORE you foolishly try to educate me on what Saul wrote to the church in Roman and what it means.

to E.S. My bad. Romans 1:27 does talk of acts sexual impurity. May I suggest you go back and look at the rules Saul is referring to in Deuteronomy for heterosexuals.

To suggest that Saul would be writing about homosexual acts to people who were heterosexual is a bit of a stretch, even for the religious right.

How did you conclude that I haven’t read Romans in its entirety? FYI, I not only have read it in its entirety but have done much research regarding the entire Bible, a book with which I am thoroughly acquainted.

You dare to falsely accuse me of praying that homosexuality is a sin. I don’t recall ever hearing anyone making an asinine accusation such as that one.

Amazingly you make another false accusation. Precisely where in my post did I profess to be smarter than God? I suspect you have a serious problem with comprehension or else you simply have a propensity for make false claims.

I suggest before you make further attempts to ridicule my statement or those of others opposed to the perversion of homosexuality, you obtain sufficient knowledge as to what the Bible really says about it.

You believe anything you like, but there is no room for debate. God's word is clear and inflexible: Homosexuality is not accepted by God and any church or person that says it is okay has fallen away from God in its deliberate twisting of scripture. Genesis 19, Romans 1, I Corinthians 6, and Jude all speak out against it, and the laws God gave the Israelites through Moses condemned it; so anyone denying this is defiant of God's word, foolishly taking a stand against God. Mankind in its sinful liberalness has become too blind to see that refusal to respect the laws of God is endangering not only the souls of the gays they are deceiving but putting their own souls in jeopardy.

And yet the Bible clearly says God created everything. That would include gays and lesbians. And mankind's sinful nature. I find it interesting that so many who cling to the Gnostic idea that mankind is inherently evil refuse to accept the fact that such a mindset dictates that you yourself are inherently evil!

You are certainly free to practice a religion based on what you BELIEVE the Bible says. Just as I am. You are also free to demonstrate so clearly that your religious focus is on judging others rather than forgiving others. Thanks for making that point clear.

Clearly you fail to comprehend that “everything” does not include sin. He did not create homosexuals, just mankind. Everything does not include gays and lesbians, for God throughout Scripture has clearly stated and shown that sexual perversion such as homosexuality is sin and not acceptable. Homosexuality is a choice, a perverted choice by man, nothing more.
You perhaps are familiar with Simon LeVay? Even he had to admit gays are not created. Read the following statement from Simon LeVay, PhD, Neurologist and Co-Founder of the Institute of Gay and Lesbian Education, in a 1994 Discover article entitled "Sexual Brain":
"It's important to stress what I didn't find. I did not prove that homosexuality is genetic, or find a genetic cause for being gay. I didn't show that gay men are born that way, the most common mistake people make in interpreting my work. Nor did I locate a gay center in the brain."
As for your falsely accusing me of judging others, you also lack understanding about that subject. I imagine you had a rather difficult time in school due to your poor comprehension level. The following is part of a post by a well known Topix poster. I suggest you read it.“In response to judging and your misconception of that Bible verse, I must say that you, like many, misunderstand that commandment of Jesus in Matthew 7:1 (NKJV) "Judge not, that you be not judged”.
When Jesus says that we are not to judge, he didn’t mean that we are not to engage in any form of analysis or evaluation of others. Those who like to justify all manner of evil use this verse to chasten anyone who would take a stand for righteousness.
The capacity of judging, of forming an opinion, is one of our most valuable faculties, and the right use of it one of our most important duties:
Luke 12:57 (NKJV) "Yes, and why, even of yourselves, do you not judge what is right?
John 7:24 (NKJV) "Do not judge according to appearance, but judge with righteous judgment."
We have to form estimates and come to a decision of what is good and evil, else we would be complete fools.
Matthew 7:6 (NKJV) "Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.
This verse gives balance to the first five verses and shows that believers are to be discriminating people. After making statements regarding judging in the first five verses, Jesus says that He wants us to judge accurately. It is impossible to follow that command without rendering a judgment.”

If God didn't create sin who did? And while we are on the subject of things the Bible isn't clear on, you never explained why Christians no longer follow ALL the laws laid down in Leviticus, Deuteronomy etc. I love it when someone who clearly likes to re-interpret scripture to suit their agenda shows up and when cornered with questions they can't really answer then turns to the old "there is no gay gene" line.

Your type never wants people to ask if science has found the gene that causes left handedness? Has science found the gene that causes heteroseuxlaity? Where is the gene that makes some religious and other not?

Look. We've heard all this stuff from folks like you before. You twist God, religion, science and scripture to justify being a bigot.

Good luck when your time comes and you have to deal with Matt. 25:31-46.

Oh and I almost forgot. Jesus wants us to judge ourselves and leave the judging og others to God.

But you wouldn't be able to understand that concept, as Matt. 7:6 clearly shows.

I am not here to explain the entire Bible to one with such limited capacity for grasping the meaning of Biblical language. If you can’t understand that many of the laws in the books you mentioned are civil and dietary laws, laws for healthy living and not part of religion, you wouldn’t be able to comprehend my explanation. One example: God’s instructions about not eating certain foods had nothing to do with religious beliefs but were for the purpose of maintaining good health.

How would an assuming ass such as you know what I want or don’t want? Obviously the LeVay excerpt has irritated you, so you are personally attacking me. Don’t you know how to debate an issue without allowing your emotions to control your input? If I’m the bigot in this discussion, that puts you considerably lower on the totem pole. It’s interesting that every time one of you gets put on the spot, your lame response is to make personal attacks. You should mature before playing with the big boys, sonny.

It’ll take more than luck when you face God. Better start your planning for eternity now before it’s too late.
