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.

Kimare will argue any point with you, just to satisfy his mental masturbatory desires. When backed into a corner, he'll just shift gears, or go into hiding for a little bit.
He can't hide from me, I'm his mangina. I'm going to steal his wife too.
Agreed but fools like this have the right to have children and pass on the bs, they also have the right to vote in bigotry.

Thank GOD these people are quickly decreasing in number and remain just little nasty gnats that are just annoying but with no purpose or concern for humanity.

Sad, ignorance seems to have a hold of so many....

Perhaps you want to check your comprehension problem on the apple and walnut tree analogy?
Smile.
Hebrew word for homosexual, please oh enlightened one, we're all waiting.

And those other ancient writing like the Dead Sea Scrolls that are changing the Bible, could you give us a couple of the names of those versions?

Help us all with your amazing insight or admit you are wrong.

LOL!

Genius, here are the results of a google search for "most accurate bible":
"The NIV as it is called, is the most often used, the most reliable, and the most often quoted of any of the major translations that are used today."
"The Most Accurate & Honest of all Bible Translations- the NWT"
"Most biblical scholars consider the NRSV (New Revised Standard Version) to be the all around best translation. Although there are a few other decent translations on the market these days, this one is fairly "literal" while maintaining a natural English style, and is the most accurate over all."
"The best single English translation to use to get as close as possible to the exact sense of the original is "The Comparative Study Bible" by Zondervan publishing house in Grand Rapids, Michigan."
"Why the King James Bible is Still the Best and Most Accurate"
"Still, the American Standard remains one of the most accurate of English language versions."

First you have an ok part, then suddenly you end up quite stupid/ childish with thiese things:

"You are stupid.

What? Those cheap counterfeit KJV? They only work as doorstops and fire starters. You need the nice old Bibles with tissue pages for toilet paper.
I agree.

There is no such thing as God, someone invented the Sky Santa: All there is is the Universe, nothing more.

You won't get a reply because you've got his balls over a barrel. Kimare simply becomes silent when backed into a corner. I've witnessed this for decades.

I myself would like to discuss whether or not God's face has been seen:
John 1:18 "No man hath seen God at any time;..."
Exodus 33:20, And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.
John 6:46 "Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is ofGod, he hath seen the Father."
1John 4:12 "No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us."
Versus
Gen. 32:30 "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved."
Exod. 33:11 "And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend."
Num. 14:14 "...that thou LORD art seen face to face,..."
Job 42:5 "I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee."
Deut. 34:10 "And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,..."
Deut. 5:4 "The LORD talked with you face to face...."
(also Psalm 63:2 Isa.6:1 & 6:5, Amos 7:7-8, Ezek. 20:35, Ex 24:9-10

The question was, what word was translated homosexual. I addressed that completely. There was no specificity about OT or NT.

I have no desire to argue Biblical language with faithless idiots spouting gay twirl they've copied from somewhere.

The bottom line is this; Historic Jewish and Christian understanding is consistent and identical. Homosexual sex is immoral. Common sense has told cultures and religions throughout human history the same thing.

Only a person in extreme denial would argue against history, all cultures, all religions, physical design, science and medical advice that anal sex is inherently harmful, unhealthy and demeaning.

Unbelievably idiotic.
