Correct!
We should be doing HIS WILL (God's will).
Yes! God will hold the individual responsible.
Again, SIN is an <<<ACT>>> committed 'by' the individual.
Or an act NOT committed, such as described in James 2.

The one absolute truth is that there are no absolute truths. No matter how certain YOU are that God agrees with you, it's still HIS call, not yours.

What God says, IS absolute.

Then how is it possible for there to be more than one English version of the Bible? If what God says is absolute, there shouldn't be more than one possible translation.

You claim that what God says is absolute and yet you pick and choose among the rules He set forth to live by. So much for that absolute, unless you are keeping ALL of the 600+ commandments in the Old and New Testaments.

Allowing same-sex marriage does neither of these as far as I've seen. Please show us the evidence that same-sex marriage does these things. It's been around long enough for there to be evidence. Let's see it.
There is no such thing as ss 'marriage'. The fact that it is distinguished with words is proof alone that it is not the real thing.

It does not therefore matter what affect it has.

At the most basic essence, marriage is a cross cultural constraint on evolutionary mating behavior.

Ss couple are a defective failure of mating behavior. Literally 'unmarriage', and certainly not equal.

How's that working out for you? Support for SSM continues to grow, in spite of your opinions.

Truth is the same in ANY language, and is NOT effected by it. The written laws in the OT have nothing to do with truth. I don't pick and choose anything, God does. He now writes His truth on our hearts and minds, which is how He designed His New Covenant.

That does absolutely nothing to explain how there can be so many possible English translations and in fact, proves them impossible.
Stan53 wrote:

They are God's laws and commandments, where exactly do YOU get off telling HIM they are irrelevant to the "truth"? You have read the Bible haven't you? God says they are important, JESUS says they are important (He was teaching a better way of being Jewish, after all) and yet to you, not so much. Good luck with that one.

Despite your absolute certainty to the contrary, EVERYTHING you choose to believe about God, YOUR choice, NOT HIS. You might be better at this if you had actually read the Book at some point instead of relying on others to tell you what's in it. You might have heard about free will at some point. It would be easier to explain to you how your beliefs are a prime example of free will in action.

And why do you have faith in Jesus and the Bible?

Prove your Bible is true.

Isn't it a coincidence that you're a Caucasian male in America and just so happen to be a Christian? Wouldn't it be just as big a coincidence if you were an Arab male in Saudi Arabia and just so happened to be a Muslim?

So, you agree that sexual abuse is an enormous problem in the military.

Actually that one is ONE direction, you just didn't understand it.
You're convinced of the Bible's truth by your faith in Jesus and the Bible. So, you're convinced that it's true because you believe it's true. How is that not exactly a circular argument?

Better yet, go to Saudi Arabia and ask them to legalize ss marriage.

I think it was very clear. Language has nothing to do with truth. Having multiple languages of the scriptures only means more people receive the truth of God. Having more English translations only means a better understanding on our part. The truth is the truth. Sorry you don't get that.

<quoted text>They are God's laws and commandments, where exactly do YOU get off telling HIM they are irrelevant to the "truth"? You have read the Bible haven't you?

I'm not telling Him anything, I'm telling you and others who are reading my post. Jesus was teaching a better way of following God, for ALL mankind, NOT just Jews.

<quoted text>Despite your absolute certainty to the contrary, EVERYTHING you choose to believe about God, YOUR choice, NOT HIS.

Of course it's my choice. That's how God made us, as free will beings. He also made us to respond to His drawing us to Him and His truth. When we accept Jesus, we accept the TRUTH, and in Him is all understanding. All we have to do is knock, ask and seek.
I rely ONLY on the Holy Spirit to make real to me what is in God's Word. My understanding is always followed by the Holy Spirit making it real.
