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.

So what's your book of truth? Do you have one? You need one, your too negative.
There is no such thing. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder is it not? If one reads the Bible as God's Book of Condemnations, then it becomes a Book of Lies.

It's all in how you in interpret things. I'm straight, but who am I to judge? I will say that no matter what faith, religion is something people need. How would people act, or behave, if there wasn't anything after this life? They might mean and angry. Hint, hint.
Why do people need religion? What good is it? People fly planes into buildings and murder others because of religion. I see no good in that.

Case in point. Poster "Caleb" comes here day after day attacking people in the name of religion. What a horrible person. He would be much better off without his religious fantasies.

Part One: The Pet Goat

A girl got a pet goat. She liked to go running with her pet goat. She played with her goat in her house. She played with her goat in her yard.

But the goat did some things that made the girl's dad mad. The goat ate things. He ate cans and he ate canes. He ate pans and he ate panes. He even ate capes and caps.

One day her dad said, "that goat must go. He ate too many things." The girl said, "dad if you let the goat stay with us, I will see that he stops eating all those things."

Her dad said he will try it.

So the goat stayed and the girl made him stop eating cans and canes and caps and capes.

But one day a car robber came to the girls house. He saw a big red car near the house and said, "I will steal that car."

He ran to the car and started to open the door. The girl and the goat were playing in the back yard. They did not see the car robber.

More to come.

Flying planes into buildings is a terrible example that hopefully well never happen again. I'm just saying people in general feel better, and are better, if they have something to believe in. It doesn't even have to be religious necessarily. That's about all I have to say about that. Be Well.
I agree.

Thank you.

I have no basis by which to judge you? That's extremely funny, coming from you.
In truth, I know you. As a former Church employee I've known many people like you.
You're a simpleton with no capacity for free thought. You take everything quite literally and you challenge nothing. You pick and choose the passages in the Bible that denerate others, while ignoring the many other "abominations" that apply to you.
As I've said, you're a cafeteria Christian, and a mediocre one at that.
Besides, I'm not judging you, I'm merely calling you out.

Here are some words of wisdom and encouragement for those of us who do not find the arguments of “gay theology” to be either legitimate or persuasive. Everyone is born into this world with a heart of stone (Ezekiel 11:19 and 36:26) and deaf ears (Deuteronomy 29:3-4). The only ones who can listen to the word of God and believe it are those to whom God has given a “heart of flesh”(Ezekiel 11:19 and 36:26) and “ears to hear”(Isaiah 32:1-4). These are the ones we are able to reach with the truth of God’s word; they are our target audience, if you will. We love the others, but we cannot expect them to agree with us unless and until God gives them a “heart of flesh” and “ears to hear”. That is God’s decision and His work, not ours.
Those to whom God gives a “heart of flesh” and “ears to hear” will, at some point in the conversion process, become “born again”. To be “born again” is not an option for salvation; it is an absolute requirement (John 3:1-8). When one is “born again”, God, by the Holy Spirit, replaces their heart of stone with a heart of flesh (Ezekiel 11:19 and 36:26); that is, He removes the old human spirit they were born with, which is at enmity with God, and replaces it with a new human spirit (Ezekiel 11:19 and 36:26), which is from God (John 3:1-8) and in harmony with God. The “born again” person loves the word of God and eagerly believes (receives) it (1 John 4:6).
James, do you even read what you post?
Since I don 't believe in god, then I have a "heart of stone" and "deaf ears", right? And I have to wait until god gives me a "heart of flesh" and "ears to hear" before I will listen to the word of god and believe it, right?
So that means that god and only god decides who he wants as a Believer. All your preaching won't do any good. God has already made his choices.
So much for free will.

Who am I? I am getting so confused. I didn't think I was gay, but maybe my alternate universe me is gay.
Nice try.

It seems it is your straw man interpretation of James point andd not the point itself that you have managed to refute.

As for free will, it is a concept that Christanity pionered.

Jesus NEVER said anything at all about Homosexuality. Not one word.

I'm sorry, what were you saying about lies/liars?
