I haven't seen you discuss what word was replaced by homosexual in the bible in 1946, and why homosexual is a better translation.

Okay girls, I guess I'll have to explain everything;

Genesis 1:27 (NASB)
27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

God's desire? Fellowship.

God, male & female. A reflection of the Trinity. The image of God.

God, male & male? Fail.

God, female & female? Fail.

Only the original design works.

I know, it's not starting out well. But hey, keep your hopes up! Your gay twirl theology says it will work out well.

Smirk.

Why don't you explain what word was replaced with homosexual in the bible in 1946, and why is homosexual a more accurate translation.

Or is that too confusing for you?

Genesis 1 (NASB)
24 Then God said,“Let the earth bring forth living creatures after their kind: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth after their kind”; and it was so.
25 God made the beasts of the earth after their kind, and the cattle after their kind, and everything that creeps on the ground after its kind; and God saw that it was good.
26 Then God said,“Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”
27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

Genesis 2 (NASB)
7 Then the Lord God formed man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being.

15 Then the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. 16 The Lord God commanded the man, saying,“From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;
17 but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will surely die.”
18 Then the Lord God said,“It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.”
19 Out of the ground the Lord God formed every beast of the field and every bird of the sky, and brought them to the man to see what he would call them; and whatever the man called a living creature, that was its name.
20 The man gave names to all the cattle, and to the birds of the sky, and to every beast of the field, but for Adam there was not found a helper suitable for him.
21 So the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon the man, and he slept; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh at that place.
22 The Lord God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.

Genesis 1 is clear that animals were created before man & woman who were created together.

Genesis 2 is also clear that man was created first, followed by the animals/birds, with the woman being last.

If both versions cannot be correct why should people believe either?

Additionally, the instruction regarding the forbidden fruit was not given to Eve who had not yet been created.

Kimare,

Why don't you answer his question?

Your silence is speaking volumes about what you apparently either do not know or cannot say.

Secondly, your repeated asssertions that the Hebrew plurality of 'Elohim' as translated into English is a presentation of the concept of 'Trinity' are not correct.

Rev. Ken
