Dollar to a donut the Church here is aligned with the One Church and/or the World Council of Churches?
So a college aged guy who convinces a few dozen others that homosexual behavior is biblical is an AP news story? Really?
It is nothing but futile to try to justify any other arrangement.
To claim any other arrangement is not an aberration and harmful to familial security and values is foolishly blind or evil.
What’s to discuss?
First verse in Bible against homosexuality:
Then the Lord said, The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and their sin so grievous that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me.
Last verse in Bible against homosexuality, spoken by Jesus:
Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.”
Revelation 22:14-15 (”dogs” is the Jewish term for homosexuals)
And, of course, many in between.
Why do nutjobs like this get media attention but 250,000 people in DC at a March for Life or biker rally gets none?
The Bible does not say “orientation” is a sin?
The activity is a sin though, right?
seriously, what the hell is there to discuss?
Scriptures do not condemn homosexuality as a sexual orientation, but if it's only in a pervert's inclinations and not in his actions, we would never have to hear about it and there would be no reason for discussion. Scripture unambiguously condemns homosexual acts. There is no more point discussing it than there is with adultery. The Creator of the universe says "no". We have the free will to choose whether we follow God or Satan.
SODOMY is the sin, you Biblically illiterate tool. ‘Orientation’ is of no concern to God. It’s your action that is the abomination.
Who wants to discuss the disgusting? It is wrong, end of discussion.
This guy isn’t reading the same Bible, Of course it’s condemned, but so is ANY other sin.
Everyone is lost, and needs the savior..
