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.

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.

What word was replaced by homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why is homosexual a better translation?

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.

Because the mythical account does not describe the full spectrum of human sexuality, all behavior that does not conform to the archetypal and necessarily sketchy description given is not permitted or condoned?

I certainly do not concede that, because an account given in the bible does not elaborate, there is no righteous cause for behavior not described.

The premise for sexual activity - any premise, scriptural or not - does not necessarily describe the personal motivation for the behavior.

However, as Jesus noted, the personal motivation for the behavior is the foundation for the nature of the sin. That distinction was not a part of the Law, because it was personal and subjective and could not be definitively witnessed, except by one who knows the mind and heart of another.

So, no. Your attempt to estabish a premise with which to define the sin based solely upon a description of behavior, for which motivation is not given, is fundamentally insufficient.

No, your Man3 personality is way dumber than your ES personality.
