Oh, we can't???
"Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery, and the man who marries a divorced woman commits adultery." (Luke 16:18)
Our churches are full of divorced/remarried people. I know quite a few very nice Christian couples who were divorced and remarried, and many of these folks agree with you that homosexuality is a sin.
Everyone picks and chooses what they believe.
<Me> Correct! There are only three ways of being absolved from that commitment. 1. Death. 2. Either one of the two married couple commits Adultery, the innocent party is free to marry again. 3. A divorce doesn't mean one is free to remarry Again either...
<You> Everyone picks and chooses what they believe.
<Me> Not everyone, but the majority do....sadly.
God is a God of Absolutes, not political correctness, nor shades of gray....When God speaks, his words mean things....
"Our beloved brother Paul according to the wisdom given him also wrote you, speaking about these things as he does also in all his letters, In them, however, are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unsteady are twisting, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction." 2 Pet. 2:3:15,16
""Where anyone hears the word of the kingdom but does not get the sense of it, the wicked one comes and snatches away what has been sown in his heart." Matt. 13:19
"They publicly declare they know God, but they disown him by their works, because they are detestable and disobedient and not approved for good work of any sort." Ti. 1:16
And that's why the majority won't see salvation....
"Go in through the narrow gate, because broad and spacious is the road leading off into destruction, and many are the ones going in through it; whereas narrow is the gate and cramped the road leading off into life, and few are the ones finding it."
