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.

No need to look it up. I grew up in a Catholic boarding school and had religion rammed down my throat for years.
The most important thing I learned there was that Catholicism and all its Christian sub-cults were a gigantic fraud.
Same applies to all other religions.
So your experience with other people's experience with God is dictating your experience with God?

Are you sure that is wise???

Blah blah you have nothing.
The 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 brilliant education....
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.

Are you with me so far?

Smile.

Genius, you're wrong. Again.

Judges 8:30
And Gideon had threescore and ten sons of his body begotten: for he had many wives.
1 Chronicles 4:5
And Ashur the father of Tekoa had two wives, Helah and Naarah.
2 Chronicles 13:21
But Abijah waxed mighty, and married fourteen wives....
1 Kings 11:2-3
Solomon ... had seven hundred wives ... and three hundred concubines.

So it's god, male & female & female & female & female & female & female & female & etc....

What word was replaced with homosexual in the bible in 1946, and why is homosexual a better translation? Of course, please put it in the proper context.

Would you mind posting the biblical passage that states god's desire is fellowship?
Would you mind saying what word was replaced by homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why homosexual is a better translation? Please made sure you use the proper context, of course.

I appreciate your effort!

First and foremost, you still failed to equate duplicate genders to the image of God.

Second, because the Bible includes behavior of men, that does not mean approval of that behavior. Let me use your first and last examples (the most extreme). In both cases, it was specifically the result of numerous wives that led to very negative consequences. Gideons bastard son killed his 70 half brothers! It was Solomon's wives that led to his turning away from God.

Third, you will find two main purposes of multiple wives;
-An unrestrained sex drive, something the Bible hardly approves of.
-The protection of women, either in cases of the death of their husband (relatives step in), or a culture where women outnumber men. However, time after time, the Bible records conflict between the multiple wives of Biblical characters. Hardly a picture of the ideal.

We can't honestly address your question until we address the fundamentals of sexuality in the purposes of God.

Smile.

Your contention doesn't disprove my answer, it validates it.

Fellowship with Adam and Eve was broken in the garden. You quote the heartbeat of God. Salvation, acquired by the 'second Adam' was accomplished by the sacrifice of Jesus. The result? Fellowship is restored.

Any questions?

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?

<quoted text>
You are a scholar, right? I really held out hope for an intelligent discussion.
Are you stumped already too?
If you work with translations, surely you know the importance of context!
Smile.
That's interesting. You require a true and correct translation. But, when that fails to produce a proper line of reasoning, in your opinion, you resort to "context" to interpret what was not written.

Some fundamentalist/literalist YOU are turning out to be!

Heck! Except for some of your screwy ideas, you might be just about like the rest of us.

It is wrong to seek an accurate translation?

Context is one of the fundamentals of interpretation.

Who said I was a fundamentalist/literalist? Would you be having such a difficult time with me if I was 'one of those'???

You mean broken?

You and your mouse must have some Special reading glasses, Genius. I don't see the word "fellowship" anywhere in this passage:
"God desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth."
I really get a kick out of proving you wrong. Should we go over what is and what isn't a fruit again?
And I don't see you explaining what word was replaced by the word homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why homosexual is a better translation.

Yeah, please quote any bible that calls Adam a "second Adam".
Here's what your favorite bible says:
"New American Standard Bible (1995)
So also it is written, "The first MAN, Adam, BECAME A LIVING SOUL." The last Adam became a life-giving spirit."

Wow are you stupid.
