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.

<quoted text>
Genesis 1:27-28 (NASB)
27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.
28 God blessed them; and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth..."
Genesis 2:22-24 (NASB)
The LORD God fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.
23 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man."
24 For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.
Here are some clear conclusions we find in these first two chapters of the Bible.
1. God created man and woman as a reflection of Him. Not man and man, not woman and woman, but male and female.
2. God created them with the specific purpose of procreation. Interestingly, the very primary goal of evolution's mating behavior!
3. In the second description we find that what was once a simple genderless life form, God divided into genders. Again, a concise confirmation of the process of evolution; simple genderless life forms evolving into genders. But again, certainly not an evolution into duplicate genders...
4. But now catch this; God REUNITES the divided life form BACK into a single life form in the form of marriage! This at the very fundamental beginning of human life. And still, NOTHING that even remotely indicates a purpose or even presence of gay couples. No design or plan for homosexuality.
Am I missing anything here yet?

YES!

What ancient Hebrew word is there for homosexual?

One word can't be that hard to find, you made the claim. prove it.

Also, you've conveniently neglected to mention the other historical finds that make some (which one you haven't shared) Bibles more accurate.

Still waiting, again and again.....

Rabbi Steinberg-Caudill believes that the Hebrew word that orginally conveyed the concept of what we today refer to as "homosexual" is the word &#1505;&#1512;&#14 97;&#1505; (saris), commonly translated "eunuch".

Simply put, homosexuality is defined as a man desiring another man for his sexual partner. In ancient times, a eunuch was chosen to guard the king's harem. The eunuch could be trusted to guard a king's harem, often because he had been castrated and could not produce offspring.

Yeah, Genius. Exactly where does it say that woman is created in the image of god? I can see where it says twice that man is created in the image of god, but your quote only says that woman was created.
Please, feel free to add anything you want to the bible.
And what word was replaced with homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why is homosexual a better translation?

The very first verse you quoted. 1:27.

Male and female.

Genius, where in the bible does it say that "God created woman in his image"? Your post only says "male and female he created them", which leaves woman on the same footing as all the other animals.

Adam didn't evolve, Genius. And no where in the bible does it say he was genderless.

You haven't made any assertation.

You've simply used rude language in order to diminish my argument.

And I haven't ducked away from defending my argument because all of your replies have failed to acknowledge my argument, you simply insult me by attempting to provoke a rude response to your rather rude posts.

My argument is that the Bible is open to interpretation, you should respect the views of others, it is against christian religion to persecute the "meek" and judge each other ("judge not lest ye yourself be judged"), and there are certain sects of christianity which support homosexuality.

I also put forward the argument that since homosexuality and homosexual relationships and marriage actually predate Christianity this argument is pretty much irrelevant.

What exactly IS your argument? Because as of yet you have failed to put forward a reply containing any intellectual substance.

Here's what you wrote,Genius:
"Honey, you clearly don't know sh/t about the Bible, let alone the laws and not to mention comparing anything to the Nazi's.

I assert you have posted someone else's thinking and are incapable of defending any single aspect of it."
Prove your assertion that she read it some where else.
And what word was replaced with homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why is homosexual a better translation?

Wow are you stupid.
