I find it quite profound that an ancient text accurately portrays a simple life form evolving into genders.

Fornication is any sexual act that is committed outside of marriage. The following passages address God's stance on fornication.
Paul writes in I Corinthians 6:9-11, "Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners shall inherit the Kingdom of God".
Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.- 1 Corinthians 7:2.
Fornication does not mean in itself sex outside marriage.

And they are to have husbands and wifes to avoid sexual sins, that are likely to happen outside of marriage.

Fornication = "Sexual intercourse between partners who are not married to each other."

I don't think they were checking out the fauna, somehow.

According to: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/fornic...

Fornication is :
noun
1. voluntary sexual intercourse between two unmarried persons or two persons not married to each other.
2.Bible. idolatry.

According to: http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/for...

Fornication is
consensual sexual intercourse between two persons not married to each other

Notice these definitions do not confine fornication just to homosexual individuals or just to heterosexual individuals. Therefore it can be concluded that generally speaking both are wrong and if they become part of a habitual lifestyle, with no remorse and no attempt to turn from that sin, those lifestyle habits will separate one from the kingdom of God. I think it is pretty clear that fornication even by our modern standards according to numerous dictionaries is sex outside of marriage and is forbidden by God.

Galatians 5:19-21 Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these;.
Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, Witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envying, murders, drunkenness, revelings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.

Actually the Bible is a collection of writings from about forty contributors, thirty in the Old Testament and ten in the New Testament. For example, the Psalms are a collection of the works of several authors, of whom David, the "sweet singer of Israel", is the best known. But psalms were also written by Moses, by Asaph, by a man named Ethan, and by the sons of Korah. t is truly amazing that all forty of these authors, spread out over 1600 years, have such a unified message in spite of their great diversity in language, culture and time. There is a reason for that! The reason is that these forty or so writers are all secondary authors. There is actually only one primary author, the one who inspired all the human authors, the eternal God.

One of the most persistent myths, however, concerns the relationship of humans to great apes.

Quoting from the aforementioned website:
"Linguistic Insight: Galatians 5:19-23
19The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery;20 idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions; 21and envy, drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law (Galatians 5:19-23).

In this article we will take a look at some of the key terms in these two lists (the list of vices and the list of virtues). Let us begin with the three sins of Galatians 5:19:
* Sexual immorality
* Impurity
* Debauchery

These three terms are grouped together, and all have sexual overtones.

* Porneia (sexual immorality or fornication) is any sex outside marriage. In its various forms, this word appears more than fifty times in the N.T., which never allows sex outside the marriage relationship.
* Akatharsia (impurity, uncleanness, rottenness, filth) is quite a broad term, and there is no reason to restrict it to a single definition, as some define "impurity." The word also appears in Romans 6:19, 2 Corinthians 12:21, Ephesians 5:3, 1 Thessalonians 4:7, and five other locations in the N.T. In the O.T.(the Greek LXX) the word appears often, especially (not surprisingly) in Leviticus.
* Aselgeia (sensuality -- NAS, lewdness -- NKJV, lasciviousness --KJV, indecency, vice) is occasionally rendered debauchery in the NIV. While it is true that figuratively speaking one can "debauch" himself in many ways, the term is decidedly sexual in content and context.

(End quote)

If you google the following terms then you will find a host of information about fornication in the context of the original scrolls concerning this particular passage in Galatians: google Galatians 5:19-21 original greek meaning

What "proofs" have you for your "alternate theory"?
I'm afraid I don't know what alternate theory you are talking about as I did not propose any.
Why only We have to to provide all those verifiable proofs?
Why not you people?
Well, you see, how it works is that those who make claims bear the burden of proof for their claims. It's not up to others to prove their claims for them.

You need not prove anything by the way; claims presented without evidence may be dismissed without any in a likewise fashion.

You seem to be presuming that all the books and letters included in the Canon have known/undisputed authors, which is not the case.
There is actually only one primary author, the one who inspired all the human authors, the eternal God.

The words lord god baal were added to his name because the divine reverence of his name was believed to be to holy to be spoken so man changed his name and made him a god the very thing he warns you not to worship.And what better trick for satan to pull on mankind.

And those laws were never nailed to the cross but because they say they are. this is the reason for the sin in the world.

Sick is a hero for standing up to the evil demonic homosexual pedophile agenda. I remember when a gay boy scout leader raped some young boys on a camping trip a few years ago. This is the
reason the evil gays want to be boy scout leaders and catholic priests. They are sick in the head.
Thank you Bob And yes it is evil their minds are lead by satan and they are satanic like most of the world most worship satan and they don't even know it....And I remember that as well and now the boy scouts accept homosexuality.But you can not be over weight....Sorry to say it but satan is winning and will continue until our father returns. Satanism.is in everything but most can not see it.
