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.

Did you know that at the moment of conception your DNA has determined every aspect of your identity? And that out of every single other human, you are totally unique?
Exactly what David wrote thousands of years ago,
Psalm 139:15-16 (MSG) You know me inside and out, you know every bone in my body; You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something.
Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, The days of my life all prepared before I'd even lived one day.
What about me, the monster mutation? Or you, the homosexual? It's not a new question by any means. Something every person has wondered in some form and degree or another. And while the answers vary from judgment to denial, here is the one that guides me,
John 9:1-3 (MSG) Walking down the street, Jesus saw a man blind from birth.
His disciples asked, "Rabbi, who sinned: this man or his parents, causing him to be born blind?"
Jesus said, "You're asking the wrong question. You're looking for someone to blame. There is no such cause-effect here. Look instead for what God can do.
I have found that God has turned my stumbling blocks to stepping stones in amazing ways. To where, as you have noted, I glory in my weaknesses.
On this Sunday, what would happen if you honestly acknowledged and looked for what God could do with your brokenness?
Your alien could give me a sunburn.
You are broken, no doubt.
I'm neither broken nor defective.

Hey Man3, thanks for s,ucking my DlCK earlier. It was great. Hope it was as good for you as it was for me.
Roberta, just for you, big guy.
It's reported of course.
Okay Robsahn5, you respond to me, but address your message to someone called Man3.

And you than this person for a sexual act; What do you want to achieve when corresponding with Man3 on the internet in this Forum? How can you improve when it comes to keeping to the subject in this Forum or protecting this Forum?

If you don't want to improve, it's okay, but then it might be smart for me to just keep away from you or I can let more people confront you first if you are willing.

Lord in Heaven, You are my everything; thank You Lord:

Psalm 91

1 Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
2 I will say of the Lord,“He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
3 Surely he will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
9 If you say,“The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord,“I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
and show him my salvation.”

Thank You Lord, I fix mye eyes on You; You are my helper, my Saviour. Amen.

geriatric troll droppings.

you might be cracked, broken, mutated, or fatally flawed but as for gay and lesbian individuals we are completely whole as we were created.

on this Sunday, why don't you just admit that you are an aging troll that nobody else agrees with.

Homosexuality is the perfect conduit for Satan to work his evil machinations upon society, as the homosexuals can hide behind the Constitution while they work their destruction.
Dear Readers,

The poster of the message above shows good evidence of an extremely homophobic, superstitious and bigoted viewpoint, and also an unusually disparaging regard for the exceptional virtues that are ably defended in the American Constitution.

The Consitution is the very instrument that gaurantees the posting author the right to make such ill-informed and unfounded comments.

As for the author of the post above, "El Segundo," he usually posts under the name of "Manmanman," except when he does not wish to be credited with making the irresponsible statements that he actually believes.

Such misdirecting behavior shows a persistent lack of honesty and a failure to accept personal responsibility. It also shows a condescending disregard for all other authoring posters on these threads.

As far as these TOPIX threads are concerned, let the poster, whether signing as El Segundo or Manmanman, be fed to the likes of NoQ and Robsan and others who have very little tolerance for such feckless drivel.

It is one thing to state one's opinion, whether sympathetic to claims for equal treatment before the Law or unsympathetic for whatever reason one may keep. But, it is another thing entirely to post messages here while also attempting to avoid responsibility for one's own opinions.

Blow it out your shorts, Blue Bottle Fly El Segundo Manmanman.

And "don't go away mad. Just go away."

Let the conversation here get back on topic.

El Segundo really struggles with personal behaviour. I am not talking about this message, but I am talking about him threating i.e. me earlier; He seems to struggle very hard.
Dear Readers,

The above is another example of Manmanman trying to get attention by answering his own posts (as El Segundo). Apparently he answers to "Ramona," also.

And, LOL!!!.... Yes, I agree. El Segundo (Manmanman) really does struggle with personal behavior.

How can Manmanman be the same as El Segundo and a Fa$$ot when El Segundo argues against homosexual practice?

So Lord, I pray for everybody in here, espescially RevKen and NoQ. Amen, and bless all in here. Amen

Hebrew 12,1-3:

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, 2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Christianity is nothing more than a bunch of lies and contradictions piled on top of each other. Jesus and the bible preach about love and tolerance, but his mindless lemmings we call worshippers bring about wars to make others believe in him. God gives us free will, but he forces you to follow him or else burn forever in hell.
Christianity has done nothing more than hold our country's progress back with laws and orders, telling we can't do this, but can only do that. According to the bible, you're suppose to stone your relatives to death for joining another religion. According to the bible, women are nothing more than objects for men. Why aren't you enforcing the bible you zealots punch so much? "WE ARE, WE HATE FAGS"
And if you're one of the lemmings who think gay people are going to burn in hell for having FREE WILL and a right to practice what they want and like, you're no more than a fool, and it'll be people like you who'll be judged by your beloved invisible man when its your time.
This is So untrue. Have u ever even tried to read the Bible. Jesus loves everyone no matter what :) Praying for u

Prove the Bible is actually correct or an accurate reflection of what Jesus was teaching.
