There is no such thing as a Gay Christian

May 2, 2012 Full story: www.virtueonline.org 236

It is extremely difficult for me to talk about this, but I have decided to let Jesus be glorified in my weakness, and to let Him use my past and my experience to further His Kingdom by communicating the amazing and saving truth of His Word.

This note is not geared towards non-Christians. It is geared towards those of us who are professing believers of Jesus Christ and who believe in the God of the Bible. But I hope that even if you are not a Christian that you will read this with an open mind and evaluate your own beliefs and do your own research on Christianity and the Bible. Our faith is NOT a blind faith. There is plenty of evidence, and I encourage you to seek it ... Full Story

You don't have to do Facebook..I am offering to be your friend. I am turning the other cheek. I am being as Christian as I can be. I don't want to fight with you or with anyone...LION AND LAMB, sound familiar? I'll send you a private message with my personal email address and telephone number. How about it Joe?

OK, but recall that I had previously blocked your PMs; let me see if I can figure-out how to undo that action.

The message that Santa has that is too small for you to read is a message to all the little children of the world; Dear Children, Some day you will learn everything there is to know about Santa and on that day, I want you to remember everything the adults have told you about Jesus.

... I thought children sent Santa messages (called lists), and not the other way round.

The Bible repeatedly condemns all homosexual behavior in the plainest of terms, so it is impossible to be a practicing homosexual and a Christian. Christianity is Bible based.

LOL!!!!!
How do we know what he is missing any of the pleasures of the flesh since we know virtually nothing about him and can't because he is Mr. Null Set and there is nothing about him that is real.

"what the Bible forbids is acts of lust, rape, idolatry, violation of religious purity obligations, or pederasty, but not condemnation of homosexuality in relationships of mutual respect and love." Dr. James B. Nelson, Professor of Christian Ethics, United Theological Seminary

"The New Testament and Homosexuality" Robin Scroggs, Prof of New Testament at Union Theological Seminary is a serious theologian and is favorable reviewed by many theologians. He is a happily married heterosexual with no personal bias. He includes cites from Boswell and expands further especially on pederasty and concludes there is nothing biblically wrong with homosexuality.

"What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality" by Daniel Helminiask, PH.D., was ordained as a Catholic priest in 1967 and is incardinated in the Diocese of Pittsburgh. From 1981-1985 was Assoc Prof for Systematic Theology at Oblate School of Theology and earlier completed his Ph.D. in systematic theology at Boston College and Andover Newton Theological School. He concludes the Bible says absolutely nothing about homosexuality being sinful when you examine the actual Hebrew/Greek texts."

Baptist Rev Dr. William R. Stayton, Divinity degree from Andover
Newtown Theological School and on faculty of LaSalle University's Grad program in Religious studies:- "There is nothing in the Bible regarding homosexual orientation. In fact, the Bible does not concern itself with sexual orientation. It does speak against gang rape, male prostitution for religious purposes, and pederasty. I lead bible study programs on this subject and am convinced that the Bible does not address the issue of a person's sexual orientation."

"God is not a Homophobe: An unbiased look at Homosexuality in the Bible" by Philo Thelos
http://www.trafford.com/4dcgi/view-item...
Several books already exist attempting to demonstrate that the Christian Bible does not, in fact, condemn consenting-adult homosexuality. But God is Not a Homophobe has a unique perspective in that the author has a lifetime of experience in pastoring hard-core fundamentalist churches. His former bitter opposition to all forms of homosexuality has given way to a rational, unbiased acceptance that the Bible says hardly anything about homosexuality, and what it does say cannot honestly be used to condemn consenting same-sex unions."

"Is The Homosexual My Neighbor?" by Latha Dawson Scanzoni This is the revised edition of the classic book that calls for Christians to reexamine their beliefs and attitudes toward homosexuals. The authors look at homosexuality from biblical, scientific and psychological perspectives. An excellent resource."

Very informative post.

I read "What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality" several years ago, brilliant stuff and true.

Thanks for the list, I'll peruse the others....
