Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

<quoted text>Trolls like you going elsewhere would be a start. None of your posts are on topic. If you aren't interested in the Bible's repeatedly commands against all homosexual behavior, why are you here?

it has been pointed out, REPEATEDLY on what the bible really says and what it really means and YOU reject those scholarly understandings and interpretations.
fine.
just don't expect anyone else to buy into your claptrap, chumly.
it is YOU that repeats yourself, in the vain attempt to convince anyone (yourself included) that you're right or even that you're one of many names (can't pick a persona and stick with it ring a bell, chumly)....it is you that resorts to incorrectly assuming how people feel about themselves by projecting your feelings of worthlessness onto others. sad life for you, chumly.
i've watched you on too many threads for too many months say the same things repeatedly to no effect. in short, you're trying the same thing over and over and over again to achieve a different outcome - and we all know what that means, don't we good people?
but most of all, i do truly, deeply pity you. and because of that pity, i and my family pray for you and pray frequently. May God's grace and peace be with you.
So why do you think no Bible translation, ancient Bible text, or Judeo-Christian tradition places in question the Bible's many commands against and prohibitions of all homosexual behavior?

Are you really stupid enough to believe homofascist lies about what the Bible says, contrary to all of this?????

Do you really think repeating lies makes them come true? Hitler of course did....

If you feel 'unsafe' and 'attacked' by God's Word, it's time for a lifestyle change!

God's Word will never change and repeatedly commands against all homosexual behavior.

You don't seem to be able to walk away from this fact, so the only way you will find peace and avoid further suffering in this life or in the next is to repent and follow Jesus.

It's not "Manito" that you are afraid of. It's God's Word:

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.

Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 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.

I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."

God's Word stands FOREVER and will never change.

To everybody except Manito: Maybe we can discuss protection and how to handle attacks? Let it be a subject? How to deal with that? What to do when somebody behaves badly/ attacks?

Somebody know what to do?:):):)

To everybody (except Manito); I think there is nothing I can do if somebody chooses to attack?; What might be interesting, is how to respond to that?
