The "Gospel according to Peter" isn't biblical canon. It is NOT the Word of God!

Don't you people get tired of looking so foolish with your lies and asinine behavior?

Liar. I am not against the Bible; everything I have posted here is in support of what the Bible REALLY says on these topics. The only ones against the Bible are the homophobic christians that lie and use erroneous translations to support their own hate.

I look forward to seeing YOU answer to your God.

Do you even realize you just promoted the death penalty for homosexuals?
Leviticus 20
13 When a man has sexual intercourse with another man as with a woman, both men are doing something disgusting and must be put to death. They deserve to die.
Erroneous translation. The actual prohibition is against the sons of Israel having relations with the qadeshim (male temple prostitutes) serving the Goddess Asherah.

Well there are lists. And they vary in content. They vary because not everyone agrees what was a prophecy and what wasn't concerning the Messiah.
Example: Christians claim to list forty and more prophecies that dealt with the coming of Jesus as the Messiah. But Jews aren't so concerned about the prophecies themselves. The Jews are looking for a Jew that will by some miracle rebuild the temple where a Muslim Mosque stands. And that will be a miracle of itself. As is evident Muslims aren't turning that piece of land over to the Jews without a fight. And Muslims will probably come from the four corners to be part of that fight.
At a guess, perhaps the miracle will be converting the Muslims to Judaism...

No. It means they can use both hands for some tasks. Maybe we should give special rights to left handed people like we do to homosexuals? Maybe this should be the new criteria for marriage?
Did you manage to find a legally valid justification for prohibiting same-sex marriage during your hiatus, or is that your swan song?

You mean where Paul was bashing the pagan worship practices that were rampant in the area he was writing to? The practices that some of the early Christians seemed to be trying on for size?
There is NO mention in the Bible of folks who can only be attracted to the same gender.
Perhaps that's because God didn't see it as a cause for worry, since He created them that way, after all. Pretending otherwise won't turn a single gay person straight.
Hm, maybe there IS mention of homosexuals...

Isaiah 56:4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
56:5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.

There is STRONG linguistic evidence supporting the concept that the word translated as "eunuch" (Hebrew word <cariyc>) refers to those who from birth had no sexual desires toward women. Deuteronomy 23:1 proves that it cannot refer to men who have been castrated, since they are forbidden from being part of the congregation.

The Christian Bible teaches that homosexual behavior is condemned by God and that those who do not repent of it will suffer eternal consequences. From a Christian point of view, affirming or blessing such behavior is contributing to the eternal damnation of those who choose to engage in homosexual behavior. THAT would be hate, not supporting God's Commands.
Legally valid justification for prohibiting same-sex marriage...find one yet? Just asking for one. Shouldn't be too tough, yet you have not managed to do so as of yet. I'm sure you're just waiting for the most dramatic moment to drop it on us. Yeah, that's the ticket.

UM, Paul spent 3 years alone in the desert w/ Jesus ... I think he knows ...you should learn your Bible
And just what did early Christians think of Paul's claims?
Homilies of Clement Peter attacking a thinly disguised Paul

"And if our Jesus appeared to you also and became known in a vision and met you as angry with an enemy, yet he has spoken only through visions and dreams or through external revelations. But can anyone be made competent to teach through a vision? And if your opinion is that that is possible, why then did our teacher spend a whole year with us who were awake? How can we believe you even if he has appeared to you?... But if you were visited by him for the space of a hour and were instructed by him and thereby have become an apostle, then proclaim his words, expound what he has taught, be a friend to his apostles and do not contend with me, who am his confidant; for you have in hostility withstood me, who am a firm rock, the foundation stone of the Church.(Homilies 17.19)
Paul may have had some hallucination that he chatted with Jesus. So what? He contradicts what the actual followers of Jesus were doing (they stayed Jews) and he denied what the Bible says.

QUOTE FROM LINK:

"The great Bible teacher, M.R. DeHaan, M.D., has it 100% correct when he states concerning the blood of Jesus...

The blood was to be sprinkled, remember, on the mercy seat right after the death of the substitutionary animal of sacrifice, Now Christ is, of course, our substitute. He was slain for us upon the Cross, and entered into death for us, and when He arose, He immediately went to heaven, entered into the holy of holies in heaven, sprinkled His precious blood upon the mercy seat before the throne of God, and forever settled the sin questions, and delivered us from the curse of the law. This is clearly taught in the New testament. Hebrews 9:12 is very definite on this:

"But by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us."

Why not? Canonical simply means a group of church leaders made an arbitrary decision about what they thought should be included in the Bible.

Exactly. Besides, his epistles were simply letters of various Christian groups. They were often answers to questions in other letters which no longer exist.

What makes him 100% right? Why should anyone believe the word of Paul?
