Homosexuality and the Bible

Aug 15, 2011 Full story: www.smh.com.au 25,013

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.

I'm still thinking the loving God that created His followers in many different forms would not restrict his creations from the experience of a loving, caring personal dedicated relationship based purely on there attraction being single sexed

<quoted text> i A GREE . The Bible is ful of fantasy
Exodus 33:18-23 (NASB)
18 Then Moses said, "I pray You, show me Your glory!"
19 And He said, "I Myself will make all My goodness pass before you, and will proclaim the name of the LORD before you; and I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will show compassion on whom I will show compassion."
20 But He said, "You cannot see My face, for no man can see Me and live!"
21 Then the LORD said, "Behold, there is a place by Me, and you shall stand there on the rock;
22 and it will come about, while My glory is passing by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.
23 "Then I will take My hand away and you shall see My back, but My face shall not be seen."

Note;
-Seeing God was a life-threatening danger.
-God used three forms of protection for the radiation;
Behind a rock
Shielded with His hand
Only allowed a partial view (back)

Exodus 34:29-35 (NASB)
29 It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses' hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him.
30 So when Aaron and all the sons of Israel saw Moses, behold, the skin of his face shone, and they were afraid to come near him.
31 Then Moses called to them, and Aaron and all the rulers in the congregation returned to him; and Moses spoke to them.
32 Afterward all the sons of Israel came near, and he commanded them to do everything that the LORD had spoken to him on Mount Sinai.
33 When Moses had finished speaking with them, he put a veil over his face.
34 But whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with Him, he would take off the veil until he came out; and whenever he came out and spoke to the sons of Israel what he had been commanded,
35 the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses' face shone. So Moses would replace the veil over his face until he went in to speak with Him.

Note; The effect of radiation.

Please explain how a accurate description of radiation's danger, affect and protection appeared in a story about a Alien visiting humans in a fiction book written by numerous authors, distorted by time and translation occurred.

The bible says nothing about a "second" Adam (jesus nor anyone else) but please feel free to interpret the bible anyway you want to.
And while you're at it, please feel free to explain why homosexual replaced another word in bibles in 1946, and why homosexual is a better translation.
Oh, that's right, you can't.

It may be funny, to you, Robsan, since you know when you have posted a message.

But, it sure is more than a bit confusing to me.

You live in the garden?

This is why I'm banking on middlemind.

I am laying the foundation to answer your question. The premise for sexual activity gives us a key part of the context for answering the question.

I simply am pointing out that in the original design, according to the Bible, it was simply male and female. That is an undeniable fact.

Now, since you are adamant about what the Bible 'really' says, do you have an example of homosexuality at the beginning?

Something?

Anything???

Also funny is "RevKen" is confusing to believe that "El Segundo" and "Manmanman" identities are equal.
