Why Should Jesus Love Me?

@ Aura,

You asked me a question on Hermaphrodites.

Concerning various kinds of hermaphroditism, AKA Intersex, from what I've read thus far for my own understanding...

...there is a complete difference between one being intersex (a hermaphrodite) and a person who chooses to be transsexual - And "true hermaphroditism is extremely rare".

A person who is born intersex has an obvious physical, biological defect and there are all kinds of variations of such which can range from a woman who has a uterus, has ovaries, ovulates and can get pregnant but yet may have a grossly enlarged clitoris... or a man who does not have a uterus, has underdeveloped ovaries which did not drop and in turn they may have an underdeveloped male genitalia. A classification as a "3rd sex" is not recommended by certain intersex societies.

In this day and time, that particular defect can be surgically corrected though I've read in some places that it is not be recommended for children and that it would be better for them to choose as they become adults... when it comes to surgery. In this day and time, hormonal, genetic, radiological tests can be done in order to determine which gender a child is most likely to be.

And the majority of Intersex individuals are content with their situation, are not psychologically traumatized as many would think and simply learn to cope, as they did back in the day, by either living as a man or as a woman... but usually not both.*** There are those rare few, for example, who grew up as a female (has an enlarged clitoris but can get pregnant) but chooses homosexuality.

So anyways, the genetic defect is not their fault.. it is a physical malformation... and no, it is not a normal circumstance. Except for cases of homosexuality, God is not going to hold the case of one being intersex due to their physical disorder against them, there is no sinful, interior motive. That's my view anyways.

Jesus: "...What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come - sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery..." Mark 7:20-22

Once Saved Always Saved???

"We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren. He who does not love abides in death.

...Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him."

As long as they only cling two their four accounts of Jesus they are hard pressed to argue for even a non-magical Jesus.
There are over 150 early documents supporting a living Jesus, including Jewish records!
As long as they cling to only The Bible, they are missing about 99% of the available material regrading Jesus.
Christianity by its own bias and ignorance will never be able to make a credible case that Jesus even existed.
Some Jewish Books may have a rare mention of Jesus of only belonging to some rebellious sect... pretty much written in a dismissive way.

I thought you were Catcher1 when I responded to your So, So, posting..... apologies for that, I wouldn't have responded at all if I had realised.
But, in saying that, you are hitting the nail on the head when you say The Bible plays no role in your homosexuality, and in that, we agree 100%. See, miracles do happen!!
We agree !!!!

The Bible only plays a role in your homophobia. There is still time for you to become human. Try not to waste it.

My point is that other beliefs, other than Christians, share their beliefs - although differently... And people could either choose to either accept the belief or not In the case of Christianity, no one is being forced to believe in Jesus, no one has a g*n to their head to accept a Christian's view or faith. A person may not want to hear what a Christian believes about God or Jesus, but there again... they can walk away if they want to also.

How do you know that transexualism is not genetic?
Ecclesiastes 11:5
Just as you do not know how the path of the wind [goes], nor how the bones [of a fetus] form in a mother's womb, so you do not know the work of God who makes everything.
As to intersex humans, how would you determine what sex an intersex person should be partners with?
what about this xx chromosome male

or a person who is born with partial sex organs of both physical sexes?
if you dont mind, please explain with a little detail in your reply?
While intersex is due to a physical malformation ... TS is a psychological issue due to gender confusion.

And your proof is what, just because YOU say so?

So to play along with your hate and bigotry, why did your "god" make them abnormal?

Actually, that's a lie.

Christianity from the very beginning was all about forcing others to believe in their lies. And the Christian's own blood soaked history, as well as the killings being done today, are testimony to the violent force Christians will use.

It is the Christians coming after all of us, where do they stop?
The Christian right are like Nazis, they want to impose their will on everyone.
I'm not too fond of either political party... though I'm unaffiliated, I usually hold my nose and vote for Republicans because they got rid of the horrendous actions of partial-birth abortion and at least attempted to slow down gay marriage... though some Republicans may vote in favor of gay marriage I will not vote for them as it goes totally against my own views and beliefs. Yet, IMO the Republicans are the lesser of the two evils.

As long as anyone's "religion" plays a role or is used to influence the lives of all Americans...we have the right and the obligation to be involved in how those "religions" affect the American rights and our daily lives.

To turn our backs...too keep our mouths shut...to ignore...to just accept...is giving up our rights and letting someone else dictate how we live based on their personal "religion".

Since Christianity is the largest "religion" in America it will be the most analyzed and critiqued "religion".

.. words are important ..

.. when you say a behavior is abnormal, you imply a inherent defect, a flaw ..

.. go to any schoolyard and you'll find a bullied outcast - the effeminate boy, the only black kid, the ugly girl who wears the same clothes everyday. Where do you think children learn such behavior ??..

.. are people intimidated by things that are different, things they don't understand ??..

.. does religion teach you to cull the herd? What is your justification for labeling someone abnormal? Wouldn't the word 'different' be more apropo? In America, are Jews or Muslims abnormal? Do you even realize the damage caused by such statements? Would you call a child with muscular dystrophy abnormal ??..

.. if you choose to reaccess your word selection, take the spotlight off homosexuality. Is a child with Down's Syndrome abnormal or different ??..

Qu_Innocence and his ilk are themselves very damaged people.

And they dedicate themselves to causing others pain.

And why?

Oh, to serve their god.

Jesus never forced anyone to believe on Him... He simply spoke the Truth. The Apostles and First Christians in the books of Acts and beyond never forced anyone... they were actually the one "being analyzed"... lol.

In any case, it wasn't until the 4th century when a pagan emperor and certain councils forced everyone to convert to a universal church (Catholic)... a church where Pagans and Christians were forced to merged. All they did was take the name of the pagan gods and gave them Christian names... and take certain pagan institutions and did the same.

Those Christians and Pagans who refused to accept those terms and did not merge into this universal church were called heretics. It wasn't just the pagans who were being forced or face an inquisition... it was genuine Christians as well. And yes the Catholic church in those days did do some horrendous things to heretics.

But today is a different time and no valid excuses could be made that someone is forced to accept Christ... but at the same time Christians ought to speak the truth at the risk of "being critiqued" and "analyzed."

*******

Jesus: ""If the world hates you (those who genuinely Believe on Him), keep in mind that it hated Me first."
John 15:18
