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.

Now you are trying your best to back out of your previous erroneous statements. No can do. You already displayed your problems with the truth of the matter.
Robsan is exactly right in his assessment of your posts.
And, yes, MiddleWay is a bonafide biblical scholar. But, you wouldn't be able to figure out if he is or is not, anyway. Your mind is closed.

No backing rev, that's you falling from the gay twirl.

I answered the question. Go back and look at it.

Humor me, I didn't see a Hebrew word, just a lousy Greek interpretation from a Hellenist writing.

Those poor Greeks have a 'camel' going through the eye of a needle instead of knowing the Hebrew word for 'ROPE'.

You might trust their interpretations but as a scholar and a paid researcher, I'll stick with the original, the correct version...

Smirk......

I did so, because most people are familiar with them.
Judging from your comprehension shown so far, I really doubt you work on translating anything. if you do, you should be fired.
Smile.
Well, fill us in on the others.

I know you are much more educated and do this for a living so please - educate us.

LOL......

These people frighten me. Uneducated, ignorant and arrogant, just the type Jesus warned us about.

God help them....

Kimare will argue any point with you, just to satisfy his mental masturbatory desires. When backed into a corner, he'll just shift gears, or go into hiding for a little bit.
He can't hide from me, I'm his mangina. I'm going to steal his wife too.

Not really.

Homosexual (adj.)
1892, in C.G. Chaddock's translation of Krafft-Ebing's "Psychopathia Sexualis," from German homosexual, homosexuale (by 1880, in Gustav Jäger), from homo-, comb. form of Greek homos "same" (see homo-(1))+ Latin-based sexual.
"Homosexual" is a barbarously hybrid word, and I claim no responsibility for it. It is, however, convenient, and now widely used. "Homogenic" has been suggested as a substitute.[H. Havelock Ellis, "Studies in Psychology," 1897]
Sexual inversion (1883) was an earlier clinical term for it in English. The noun is recorded by 1895. In technical use, either male or female; but in non-technical use almost always male. Slang shortened form homo first attested 1929.

I agree. The Bible is crap.
It doesn't even make good toilet paper! I know I used to ask for a Bible free motel room when I used to travel and if it wasn't removed I would steal it and take it home and use it one page at a time in the bathroom.

You are all idiots wrote:
Seriously, why is this even a debate? According to the bible we shouldn't eat pork, we shouldn't get divorces, we shouldn't get aroused by anyone other than our partners, and we should treat women as lower-class citizens.
Henceforth any man who tells me homosexuality is an abomination is going to have his wife stoned.
This is a debate because some of us have not evolved as far as others. Those lacking the evolutionary gift of the ability to use reason and logic do not debate the Bible, instead they dismiss it entirely. Those who only use their "lizard" brain believe just any old tale they are told and will kill should someone question it. Every thing they know about God is just something someone else has told them, or they themselves have made up in their own head. They assume everyone else is as stupid as they are so they insist that God is real to them and they know something the rest of do not know. The truth is these individuals are a pathetic evil who exist to make life miserable for the rest of us. There is no God and Christianity is the abomination.

It does matter. You said I am "so stupid because I believe any old tale."
What "old tale" do I believe?
Robert
I give up, which one? Maybe the one that you are a self conscious free individual who lives his life as he wishes? Anyway I do not recall saying this to you. I was under medication a month or so ago and I know I made several error's answer people in the wrong reply screen. If I owe you an apology here it is: I'm sorry.

Did anyone believe you were "so stupid because..."?:)

From one Rev. to another:
That's funny.
If one is inclined to practice a mantra of "believe nothing," one would have no reason to seek to verify anything.
Obviously, you actually are attempting to believe "nothing." But, equally obvious is your inability to describe just what that "nothing" is.
Rev. Ken
You are nothing.

Perhaps you want to pick one point to discuss specifically?
Smile.
I myself would like to discuss whether or not God's face has been seen:

John 1:18 "No man hath seen God at any time;..."

Exodus 33:20, And he said, Thou canst not see my face: for there shall no man see me, and live.



John 6:46 "Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is ofGod, he hath seen the Father."

1John 4:12 "No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us."

Versus

Gen. 32:30 "And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved."

Exod. 33:11 "And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend."

Num. 14:14 "...that thou LORD art seen face to face,..."

Job 42:5 "I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee."

Deut. 34:10 "And there arose not a prophet since in Israel like unto Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face,..."

Deut. 5:4 "The LORD talked with you face to face...."

(also Psalm 63:2 Isa.6:1 & 6:5, Amos 7:7-8, Ezek. 20:35, Ex 24:9-10

That is probably the most objective and impartial statement you have ever written in here. Thumbs up for the truth.
