Oh, please. You bible-thumpers need to stay out of adults bedrooms. It's not your business, it's not god's business, it's not George W. Bush's business, it's not anyones business. The fact that you people are pathetic enough to think that you should have a say about what two CONCENTING ADULTS do in their bedroom is just rediculious. Homosexuality isn't evil, it isn't sick or disgusting or immoral, it is just different. They are not hurting anyone, and they are not forcing anything on anyone.
They are two concenting adults, and should be allowed to do what all other concenting adults are allowed to do. It's not even close to pedophilia, necrophilia, rape or beastiality, to those of you who are twisted or disturbed enough to think that they are at all related. You know why? Because those acts are about hurting, non-concent, and control. Homosexuality is exactly like heterosexuality, just instead of being attracted to the opposite sex, they are attracted to the same sex. Big f*ckin deal! They are two ADULT HUMANS doing what all other adult humans do. It is not a threat to your family, your marriage, or your life. It is just a different way of living.
Stay out of my bedroom, my friends bedroom, and anyone's bedroom who doesn't welcome you there. I don't need you telling me what is 'moral' and what isn't. I don't need you telling me what is 'natural' and what isn't. Worry about your own sex life, not mine.
All that being said, I am a heterosexual.
Wow finally someone that is open minded! haha I agree and people say its a choice, it is not ever since I was young there was nothing I wanted more than to be "normal" so if it is a choice I would not have suffered all my child years.

Now don't get me wrong I am a spiritual person I just thing your belief should be more based on your faith rather than some literature.

I know you wish that with all your little heart, but like your sick, delusional belief in praying away the gay, this goes on the list of things you are completely mistaken about. You're the one giving God the finger over His Commandment not to bear false witness, not me.

Just the facts, KiMare:
Still legally married. My marriage now has ALL of the same recognition that yours has.
That's the fact, Mary.

Your marriage is recognized legally by man but it is not recognized as a marriage AT ALL by God. And I understand that it is possible that you or maybe some others here care less about what God has to say about homosexuality and separately even my own opinion and comment on the matter. But the topic is an inquisitive if homosexuality is a sin so I'm on topic. And I understand the range of issues, such a spousal benefits and such why a person who has same-sex attraction marries another person with the same addictions. Nevertheless;

Gay marriage is still a fornication in His sight and those who are married in such a way are still living a sinful lifestyle..

Say a homosexual so-called spouse cheats on the other... it might be considered adultery in the eyes of the state but in God's eyes it is still fornication. There wouldn't be a difference.

*******

Jesus: "For out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, FORNICATIONS, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: Matthew 15:19

Porneia is the original word used here in the scriptures for Fornications: "illicit sexual intercourse, adultery, fornication, homosexuality, lesbianism, intercourse with animals etc."

Yes. Homosexuality is a sin.

Using the Bible, it is impossible to prove that homosexuality is a sin.

<quoted text>The Bible refers to homosexual practice as an abomination, unnatural and informs us that those who practice such things shall not enter into the Kingdom of God.
As far as the word "abomination" in reference to homosexuality, a lot of times people will then counter by also referring the Bible's account that abomination is also "eating shellfish".
Please bear in mind that the Hebrew (in some places, Chaldean) in which the Old Testament was originally written in, the Hebrew use for "abomination" when referring to shellfish and the like is the Hebrew word "shequet" (a destestable thing, it can refer to an idol, and also unclean) while the other Hebrew use for "abomination" that is used for the two passages in Leviticus which refers to homosexuality, is "tow'ebah" (that is, a disgusting thing, and from an ethical sense ---> wickedness. Depending on other passages, it can also refer to something else in a ritualistic sense).
So, the abomination used for shellfish and the abomination used for homosexual practice are two different connotations in the original language.
Is wickedness... sin? You betcha.
*******
By the way, little is known of this or it is read over a lot... but the Bible also makes mention of people who approves of certain, reprobate practices.
"...they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them."
Romans 1:32
I proved it.

You pick and choose your way through the Bible. He let me pick a couple of passages which you ignore as you busybody yourself in the affairs of others.
1 Peter 4:15
New King James Version (NKJV)
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other peopleís matters.
If you want to red herring your way out of the topic... then that's fine. I'll just continue to school you:

The original word for "busybody" which is used in I Peter 4:15 is the greek word "allotriepiskopos . This "greek" word is specifically used only once in the New Testament and what the word is referring to is a person who encroaches into another person's position of authority or particular appointment in the following sense:

"Then one from the crowd said to Him (Jesus), "Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me." But He (Jesus) said to him, "Man, who made Me a judge or an arbitrator over you?"
Luke 12:13-14

The above scripture is an example of an "allotriepiskopos"-t ype of situation of what Peter is referring to and in another sense ""or as a bishop in another man's diocese".

Referring back to Luke 12, what the Lord is bascially saying in response to the man was that He is not a politically appointed judge to rule over the day-to-day affairs or disputes of men in that sense. That wasn't His earthly position nor was it what The Father sent Him here to do. His earthly influences were limited to preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, do miracles, perform healings and to eventually die for the sins of the entire world (to those would come to trust and believe on Him) and be raised from the dead.

Had Peter referred to the type of "busybody" in which you're thinking of as another connotation in our own english rendering and understanding of it.... then he would have used the Greek word "periergos" here in I Peter 4:15. But instead, the Apostle uses allotriepiskopos to give a better sense of what he was talking about.

********

Is a ministry to homeless victims being a busybody and meddling into their affairs? Some homeless want help and some do not. What if you saw someone break into your neighbor's window? Wouldn't that be none of your business? No of course not... you will probaly do what you have to do in order to safeguard your neighbor's house by calling the cops.

In the same sense the Gospel of Salvation is and has been preached to billions with various types of outreaches. Some want help to overcome certain adversities and some do not. Because some do not or are radically opposed.... should this ministry of Christ stop then? Of course not. Love thy neighbor.

Being gay is not wrong to some people. Like people with same-sex attraction who live their lifestyle in a prideful manner... and their supporters (to include wayward Christians).

But to those who are addicted to same-sex attraction but want out of it, to God, to Jesus, inf the Bible, to faithful Christians and some people in other beliefs and to people with common sense... Homosexuality is not only wrong but it is a sin.

Nope... that' not true at all. It's not God's will that any man perish and go to hell. That is way He sent Jesus. Actually, hell and the Lake of Fire are different places. Hell is a holding tank basically for those awaiting the final judgment. Those who go to hell eventually will end up in the Lake of Fire... which is also called the Second Death.

To all who come to believe in Jesus Christ, that is... put their whole trust in Him, shall be saved.

Some people take that to mean, "I can live any way I please and still be saved." But that is not the case. I Corinthians 6:9

Talk about cherry picking, how many of you "religious" folk wear mixed fibres? have tattoos? do any work on Sunday? Sell land? eat shellfish? Trim your beards etc.

If the bible is your argument and its laws are sacrosanct then you must follow them all, not just choose which you like.

Do you really think your judgemental deity really doesn't see your hypocrisy?

Grow up and learn to treat others as you yourself would want to be treated.

i don't deal in ad hominem attacks dear, you don't like what I am calling you because you really don't like hearing the truth. Don't feel sorry for me dear, you have a whole heck of a lot more to worry about for yourself. I've read the Bible, your Christian butt is in deep trouble.

The idea that heterosexual couples will suddenly decide not to procreate because homosexuals can marry is a transparently ridiculous argument. Can you imagine a person saying "no more sex with my wife or girlfriend because homosexuals can marry". Also when was procreation a requirement for heterosexual marriages, there are millions of heterosexual couples who are infertile and can't have children, are their marriages invalid?
The primary purpose for marriage is in God's eyes is companionship and procreation simultaneously.

Unfortunately, there are many cases where a couple (male/female) want to have children but are sterile for some genetic defect or something else. God doesn't hold that against them because their motives are pure... and not only that, their marriage isn't defiled because it is recognized by God. And there are examples in the bible where there were women who were barren for awhile but they eventually had children.

But just because a married couple (male/female) cannot have children isn't a reason to excuse homosexuality.

One of the reasons why the U.N. accepts homosexuality in the guise of human rights is because the practice simply furthers a green agenda of depopulation which they believe will eventually lessen carbon emissions in atmosphere. Less people... less carbon. So they think.

If someone had left their fly (pants zipper) open and was about to go outside in public... wouldn't you tell them? You would probably tell them because that is what you would want them to do to you... to warn you about it so you can fix yourself and not be embarrassed.

(Unfortunately, some people will not even tell you that your fly is open... they don't care about you or that you are exposing yourself).

But much in the same way, if people are on their way to hell without Jesus... or think they have Jesus but really have some form of tradition. I'm going to tell them and warn them.

(Unfortunately, some Christians wouldn't even tell you about salvation. As a matter of fact, they may assist you in your sin.)

When we first corresponded on the other thread... you laid out a reasonable argument as best as you could. I just left it alone because you were chasing your own tail when you refuses to accept the different greek words for male prostitute and homosexuality, in general.

So anyways, the reason why you came on here to resort to an ad hominem argument and a series of personal attacks is because you've already lost the argument.

For what it's worth, I'm just calling it out for what it is.
