Homosexuality and the Bible

Aug 15, 2011 | Posted by: Selecia Jones- JAX FL | Full story: www.smh.com.au

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,

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.

Why don't you show what word was replaced by homosexual in the bible in 1946, and why homosexual is a better translation.
Or is that too confusing for you?

Oh, but I am. In context. That is the logical way to address your question. You don't want a logical response?

I'm shocked.

Next time that you dodge the question, please do it a little more slowly. Things got a little shaken up down here.

This is the concept of 'context'. We understand what someone is saying by comprehending the context they are using words, not just the words alone.
Now, in a sincere effort to understand this passage, what do you notice?
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.

Gee, imagine this: another non-answer from the Genius.
It's two simple questions: what word was replaced by homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why is homosexual a better translation?

Does this really matter considering the fact that both homosexuality and indeed homosexual "marriage" and relationships predate Christianity by thousands of years?

I am. In a scholarly way. Isn't that what you want too rev?

Thank you for your opinion about Genesis and the Trinity, but you are lying again. It is common Christian doctrine. You must be confusing it with a non-Biblical doctrine.

http://carm.org/christianity/christian-doctri...

However, all this avoids the clear picture of God, male and female in perfect unity reflecting the image of God.

Apparently you believe God and two men is the image, deleting the feminine side of God and leaving lesbians hanging out to dry. Of course, then there are the lesbians who claim God is a she, leaving you castrated. Seems to me either view is a bigoted and incredibly shallow view of a being called 'God'. I guess that is that only option when you make god in your image...

Smirk.

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.
That's a whole other issue.

Have you looked the subject up on a Christian apologetic site?
