I think it's a point of interest, especially with convert testimonies, it's honouring God and can show how He works in people's lives. Not an easy thing to do...
You'd think it would be easy if you were honoring a deity rather than learning how to communicate through a shared belief system.

You are a rare gem my child. If you ever get like 'Dusty'(Et Al) I will fly to OZ and straighten you out.
LOL.. my child? That's strangely familiar....hmm...

Lol, ok, you are very welcome in OZ, it's pretty awesome, for one we don't have Wesboro 'Church' or anything like it and Christians don't bother picketing funerals and abortion clinics or gay events, Jesus weeps, what a bunch of losers.

If I lived there, I'd organise a picket to protest their protesting and throw tomatoes at them, then they'd be too busy cleaning their clothes to bother carrying on like that in public, or they'd shoot me, lunatics.

Have you seen Red State? One messed up story.

<quoted text>The simple answer is because pre-marital sex is part of fornications, which is sin.
Why is it a part of the fornications, which is sin? Why is fornication sins?
A person who genuinely trust Christ as their Savior is suppose to honor God in their bodies especially.
Some religions see sex as honoring their deities.
Call it a protocol, or just plain obedience to the Lord... it is a process which we call sanctification.
If you have the time or care to know more: I Corinthians 6:12-20
So...you've just been told that's how it works and you believe it?

Not trying to be insulting. Does sex feel sinful to you? And, if so, is that because it's a pleasurable thing - does Christianity limit the pleasurable parts of life so that it increases control over the believer?

Maybe these aren't questions for you, since you're a believer.

You have yet to define fornication.
You can't even define what "marriage" is based on the Bible.
Did you know there are no marriage vows in the Bible ?
If you are going to invent your own deifinitions then you have no one to talk to but yourself.
C'mon! You're just cranky cause he told you to be careful of STDs... big baby... what did God, then Moses then Jesus say Mr. Believer?

Because Paul said so, the Catholic Church said so and the Protestant churchs said so.
The OT, esp. Song of Songs tells a much different story about God's view on sex.
Ah, I see. They've been told and that's that. It's funny that a bunch of old virgins can dictate how sex works :)

So the God of the Bible had a different idea?

<quoted text>Thinking of the child going to school and saying Mum and Mum or Dad and Dad sort of makes me feel the child might be tormented .... Children have enough to contend with, without the added issues of the parents sexual preferences to cope with as well.
When you were a child, how often did you think of your parent's sexual preferences?

Children need and want to be loved. I don't think they care who is doing that.

When I'm in China I volunteer at an orphanage. I teach English. The kids there are beautiful and so eager to learn. I want them all to be adopted by loving parents. I don't care what those parents look like, what color their skin is or what they do in the privacy of their bedrooms as long as they love the child that they adopt.

But, alas and alack, we have been told this homosexual debate will continue, and I guess, we knew that is what some of the posters are actually in here for. Purely for homosexual purposes and to bring out the best and the worst in Christian posters. Ah, well, we can only do what we can only do :)
So far, we've brought out the worst.

<quoted text>
I know there are two (conflicting) creation stories in Genesis, but as far as humans being created, the fist version just says "So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them." (Genesis 1:27), and then in Genesis 2 it goes into the specifics of Adam and Eve. I don't read that part as conflicting, unless one reads the first as God creating a bunch of (hermaphrodite?) god-imaged humans prior to A & E., which would not make sense as such being are never described as interacting with the descendants of A & E.
Where do you suppose The people came from that cain was afraid if being killed by? Cain took himself a wife after being banned. How did A & E survive upon being evicted from the garden?
Elohim is plural not singular. EL would have been singular yet still incorrect.
Genesis should read-The first one created the gods with the heavens and with the Earth”.
Yahweh is one of these gods, one of the ’Elohim (since the Bible here calls him “Yahweh ’Elohim” in the Hebrew text, and not simply “Yahweh”).

<quoted text>How the heck would anyone know that same sex has been around for 15 million years? Guess work of the greatest kind..... there would be no evidence would there?
Do you know what phylogeny is and how it works?

Phylogeny means "evolutionary relatedness." Humans are great apes, in the great ape clade, the ape clade, the ape+old world monkey (OWM) clade and, going up one more, in the ape+old world monkey+new world monkey clade.

When biological traits and behaviors are shared by many different species in a clade, the most parsimonious answer is that the behavior/biological trait evolved prior to those species - prior to the clade.

Same sex sexual behavior exists in almost all primate species, except in prosimians. Therefore, the behavior evolved after monkeys split from prosimians - roungly 40-50 million years ago.

So I actually gave you a low estimate, based on the ape/OWM split - same sex sexual behavior, in primates, evolved roughly when monkeys evolved, around 40-50 million years ago with their bigger brains and greater behavioral flexibility and abilities to form social bonds.

No, SSSB didn't evolve for any reason you can imagine. I can explain that in detail, if you like.

I'm sorry this is technical, but tough, it's how science works. Please look up the words you aren't familiar with.
*** A team of international researchers has completed a study that suggests we will probably never find a ‘gay gene.' Sexual orientation is not about genetics, say the researchers, it's about epigenetics. This is the process where DNA expression is influenced by any number of external factors in the environment. And in the case of homosexuality, the researchers argue, the environment is the womb itself.
Epigenetic mechanisms can be seen as an added layer of information that clings to our DNA. Epi-marks regulate the expression of genes according to the strength of external cues. Genes are basically the instruction book, while epi-marks direct how those instructions get carried out. For example, they can determine when, where, and how much of a gene gets expressed.
http://io9.com/5967426/scientists-confirm-tha... ***
Seeing as being sexually attracted to the same sex is not normal behavior, there would have to be something wrong somewhere along the lines wouldn't there? At least we know they are studying the issue and trying to work it out.....
First, SSSB is not due to epigenetic factors, regardless of what those researchers claim. They aren't taking into account the phylogenetic information we have and so making stupid presumptions based on the Western cultural division of sexuality into homo/hetero.

Second, you're mistaken if you think same sex sexual behavior is not normal. That's just your cultural bias coming through. It quite clearly is normal for almost all observed primate species, except prosimians (the most primitive ones).

Third, those authors are making the same mistake you are making, which is to inject their cultural biases into their research. That makes their research questionable, to say the least. Western scientists have been studying homosexuals for more than 100 years like that and so far have found nothing - because they don't understand how evolution works and are not using an evolutionary framework in their understanding of behavior.

That's just poor science.

Interesting, huh?
Ya. The Constantine gang is good at that.

In the last hours and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming even now many antichrist have come.This is how we know it is the last hour.They went out from us but they did not really belong to us.For if they had belonged to us they would have remained with us but their going showed that none of them belonged to us.

But you have an anointing from the Holy One and all of you know the truth.I do not wrtie to you because you do not know the truth but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth.Who is the liar.It is the man who denies that Jesus is the Christ. He denies the Father and the Son.No one who denies the Son has the Father Whoever acknowledges the Son Has the Father also.

See that what you have heard from the beginning remains in you.If it does you also will remain in the Son and in the Father.And this is what he promised us even eternal life.

I am writing theses things to you about those who are trying to lead you astray.As for you the anointing you received from him remains in you and you do not need anyone to teach you about all things and as that anointing is real not counterfeit just as it has taught you remain in Him.
