Do you enjoy mocking and disgracing Christianity to get your *giggles*? Are you getting good *giggles* tonight?
You're not supposed to judge people.

In the absence of evidence supporting your judgement, we are forced to conclude this is another of your slanderous rotten lies.

What number do you fundies attach to the false witness commandment?

Here's a clue: Bigger than zero and less than eleven.

The "cast the first stone" story about the adulterer had to do with the Pharisees being hypocrites. Jesus (Immanuel...God with us) knew their sins, which were more than likely the identical thing the woman was accused of doing.

Or, you know, she could have committed the sin of being raped, for which God's prescribed punishment was death by stoning. Would you stone your mother to death for being raped?

Actually NO, this thread is about Churches that will marry Same-Sex Couples and those that won't.......and so it's more than just about Christianity.........it's about marriage, the right to marry for Gay and Lesbian couples.......and it's also about some Churches trying to dictate to other Churches about what they can and can't do!!!

Of course. But that doesn't mean God won't send them to Hell. Romans 1 condemns all gays.

Romans 1
26 For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28 And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,

you need to make it clear, dollarsbill, that it is the spokesperson (you) for the false god of the Roman hoax of Christianity that is making this hateful judgment in contradiction to this scripture from the very same bible you falsely claim to follow:
1 John 4:8 (King James Version)
"8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love."
Only a madman would equate eternal torture with LOVE!
And then have the audacity to claim his god hates everyone but him and those that agree with him!
Are you sure that you are not the sock puppet of Fred Phelps?
That's some pretty intense bible thumping you have been doing here on topix, dollarsbill!
All your double talk and lies won't help gays inherit God's Kingdom. The Bible condemns them throughout. They "will not inherit the Kingdom of God."

1 Corinthians 6
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, NOR HOMOSEXUALS, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

God's bible has no words and is a spirituality in my head. It gets longer and longer as time goes by. It is unique for each person.
I'm always thumping my bible.
Which means you reject the God of the Bible because He condemns you to eternal fire. Your erroneous opinions won't save you when you stand before God. You're just another religious person without salvation.

Paul is supposedly condemning folks, not God......and there is nothing in those scriptures that mentions sexual activity between women nor men......just what your imagination wants to believe!!!

Here is something you folks need to read:
Seven or eight main biblical passages that may deal with same-gender sexual behavior are described below. They are often referred to as "clobber" passages, because they are often used to attack persons with a homosexual or bisexual orientation. Unfortunately, they have been interpreted very differently by various religious denominations, para-church groups, and traditions. All groups recognize that these biblical passages condemn some types of behavior but there is no consensus within a given religion whether it refers to same-gender sexual behavior, and whether it refers to all people or only to persons with a heterosexual orientation.

Only one passage, in Romans 1, discusses female same-sex sexual behavior. This text refers to male and female heterosexuals, who were former Christians who have left the faith, reverted to Paganism, and apparently engaged in some form of religiously inspired same-gender sex orgy against their basic nature. The passages appears to refer only to heterosexual men and women and say nothing about same-sex behavior by gays and lesbians. Some theologians have interpreted this passage as also condemning persons with a homosexual orientation who engage in opposite-sex sexual behavior against their basic nature.

Most conservative faith groups tend to interpret all of the clobber passages as condemning all forms of same-gender sexual behavior, whether by men or women. They do this, even though only one of the seven or eight passages actually refers to women, and this lone passage refers only to women with a heterosexual orientation.

Then, which reason in that list is going to condemn you?

If the Bible is true, then there is no Hell. And gays have a LOT less to worry about than xians do with their worship of a false god.

I have to say, I see more threads about Gays and Lesbians in the Christian forum than in the Gay/Lesbian forum..........and regardless of where Romans Road believes he/she is posting in........it matters not!!!

So, were women, children and many others.....your point?

Do you follow the scriptures word for word from cover to cover in the bible? and if you don't, why do you want others to?

So? The only thing that really matters is what it says in the original Hebrew. Translation ALWAYS introduces errors.
Our English Bibles warn us of the eternal fire and condemn gays.

Homosexuals "will not inherit the Kingdom of God". Perfectly clear.
