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.

Oh, the hubris of fundamentalists who are completely convinced that THEIR Biblical perspective is the only possible perspective.

Hi David. Thanks for answering my post. Your defensive manner proves me right. Besides we all know who you really are. You can run but you can't hide.

Happy Thanksgiving stupid.

You obviously are very guilty about living in open rebellion against God and consider yourself waste water because of it.
I wouldn't think of discounting the Bible. You can get one for free out of any motel room courtesy of the Gideons. The trouble is they are all the phony baloney revised King James.

Anything you post David is totally refutable as are most of your worthless opinions.

Do you have any more funny stories for us?

EVERY Bible translation, ancient Bible text, and Judeo-Christian tradition supports the Bible's repeated and emphatic commands against all homosexual behavior, which are found in both Testaments.
Christianity is based on the Bible, so virtually every Christian disagrees with you.
LOL!!!....

No. He is not referring to the thread topic. He is referring to YOU!

So, that makes YOU the apparent dope! As you judge, so are you judged.

Christianity is NOT based upon the bible. Christianity existed long before either Testament of the bible was written.

Long before. Many, many thousands of years before. The origins of Christianity came out of the Mystery Schools of the Indus Valley region at least 9000 years ago.

What Jesus taught was and is the Reality of the core of Being. His Teaching is not a matter of sexual morality. It is a matter of personal integrity and the development of an individual person's open communication with the boundless love of infinite intelligence and Being.

What you are repeating on these threads is your own interpretation of what you believe the bible to be. Certainly, you are welcome to your religious opinions. But, they have little to do with the Teachings of Christ Jesus.

Hey! You used the same name more than once, I do believe. I think you were "Caleb" before.

That's a step in the right direction, David.

But, remember, we already talked about using Leviticus against gay folks. You can't do that, logically, unless you abide by every word in the Holiness Code for ancient Hebrew priests yourself. You don't, so you need to leave that one out.

Otherwise that makes you a lying hypocrite, remember?

Now, repost appropriately, and try to stay on message.

Now, David, you can't use that either, since the word "homosexual" was not even coined when the bible was written, or used in ANY context for the first couple of millennia or so after it's writing.

Can you tell us in what Bible translation (and in what year) that was first added?

You've been informed before, but you seem to have selective amnesia at times. Keep trying, though. Eventually you might learn something useful.

You seem to be having trouble AGAIN. The term "homosexual offender" was certainly not in any of the earlier translations of the Bible.

It almost makes us think that you have an agenda, and cherry pick whatever translation fits with your obsessions, however inaccurate.

Could that be the case, David?

At least he's been sticking with "Caleb". His persona is so fractured that sometimes I wonder if HE even knows who he is.

I think you know your post isn't honest. You know well enough that when an English word was coined is completely irrelevant.
All sexual behavior between people of the same sex is clearly condemned in EVERY translation of the Bible and in every ancient Bible text. It is impossible for you to 'cherry pick' around this fact!
Then tell us what the what the ancient word for homosexual was, and it's location in each of the texts you quote.

And NO, you are wrong, as you have been shown time and time again. Repeating the same debunked belief system only makes you look a bit unhinged. There is NO place in the Bible where gay folks are condemned. It would be silly, since God MADE us gay. We see idolatry condemned, and pagan sex rituals, but NEVER gay folks and their loved ones.

Trying to twist scripture out of context to satisfy your self loathing and bigotry is never wise.

If you believe that God creates gay folks, gives them the SAME need for love that everyone else has, and then condemns them for finding it, your version of god is a sick and twisted creature.

Why would you follow such a thing?

I'd love to know the ancient Hebrew or Aramaic term, rather than a Greek-Latin hybrid from the 19th century.

If David could find it he might have a valid point, but he won't.

If he understood the Old Testament warning against pagan temple prostitutes he might understand what Saul is talking about but he doesn't.

Context is everything.....

He also overlooks the fact that the word "abomination" was substituted for the word Toevah. The latter means disobedience to the rules of the tribe punishable by death or expulsion. None apply to outsiders.

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
David. Do you think lying about your identity makes your any more relevant?

You have no personal integrity dude.
