Thanks for the support.

When the reasoning gets subtle, and the post count increases, far too many people jump on the last post out rather than taking the time to follow the thread.

It's so easy to proclaim that homosexuality is condemned. I've never said otherwise, in regard to homosexual acts or lusts -- but I know that there are many people who, through upbringing, circumstances beyond their control, or the confusion of youth, don't follow a clear path.

Rather than abandon them with a simple, "You're going to hell," I believe that God has clearly addressed that sin as he has others -- humans err, human emotions are tangled, and anyone who has recognized the conflict between what they believe about themselves and what God says, and out of that conflict has chosen God's path, have avoided the condemnation of God.

The condemnation of people seems to be a different issue.

In my post 46, I responded to Sherman Logan but I was originally going to respond to your post 10 The Bible is clear that homosexual acts are condemned, but I can't find where being homosexual is condemned.

Regarding your comment in your last post ....I believe that God has clearly addressed that sin as he has others -- humans err, human emotions are tangled,...., remember that Jesus himself was the greatest preacher on the topic of Hell that ever lived. Never did he shirk from telling other about the consequences of their actions. Luke 3 verses 3 and 5 are identical verses and get right to the point.... ‘I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish’.These are just an example of numerous passages that could have been used.

In my post 46, I responded to Sherman Logan but I was originally going to respond to your post 10 as the issue is the same...The Bible is clear that homosexual acts are condemned, but I can't find where being homosexual is condemned.

Regarding your comment in your last post ....I believe that God has clearly addressed that sin as he has others -- humans err, human emotions are tangled,...., remember that Jesus himself was the greatest preacher on the topic of Hell that ever lived. Never did he shirk from telling other or beat around the bush concerning the consequences of their actions...or where they ultimately might be going. Luke 3 verses 3 and 5 are identical verses and get right to the point.... ‘I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish’.
