You're right about it being separation from God, but I've never said that something is sinful because the word of Medic says so.

A lot of babble but not fact. You don't know your Bible very well if you're inferring the Pagans didn't practice heterosexual sex rituals.
And, yup, somehow the Bible was condemning homosexuality as an orientation even though the concept wouldn't exist for 2,000 years after Paul wrote this letter.
As I've said before, YAFI.
I'm not inferring that, just stating that we never hear about it. The only thing we hear from you guys is when you use ritual sex to try and explain a condemnation of homosexuality.

I've said before, the Bible doesn't recognize an orientation, other than heterosexuality, but it does condemn a behavior. Calling it an orientation is man's term, and is nothing more than an attempt to explain, or legitimize a behavior.

Ah, the good old "All sex outside of marriage is wrong" and "I'm against gay marriage".
I don't know how many times I have to say this but since you're proving the point for me... YAFI.
Uh huh, the good old "I can't disprove that one either so I'll just insult him". Back atcha big boy.

Not condemning homosexuality in the sense you believe, medic.

Um, duh. Maybe you never hear us discussing the condemnations of heterosexual Pagan sex rituals because people don't use the Bible to condemn heterosexuals. If you haven't noticed, the same Romans letter you use to condemn homosexuals could just as easily be used to condemn heterosexuals:

Romans 1:24
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves.

--- Wait, you mean heterosexual sex is "uncleanness" and is "lust" and is "dishonour"??? Funny how you can twist the Bible to condemn whatever you want and this passage is only scriptures away from the one you've quoted about a gazillion times already.

btw, that passage is obviously, IMHO, another condemnation of a Pagan ritual but this one is about the heterosexual aspect of the sex rituals.

What is there to disprove? You're saying all sex outside of marriage is wrong which I disagree with. The word "fornication", when the original text is reviewed, actually has to do with temple prostitution. I don't have time to look it up but you're taking today's definition of the word and ignoring the original word itself.

It doesn't matter what words you used my friend, it is what you have in your heart which counts!

Peace be with you!

Many Bible translator agree with you. On the other hand, all the stuff in Paul's letters either has to do with Egyptian or Canaanite ritual, or practices in those days involving sex with young slave boys and girls in the Temple of Athena in Corinth. So the reality, the Bible says nothing bad about committed same sex relationships.
