Will be meeting with some of my spouse's friends who are rabidly pro-sexual deviancy, some of whom claim to be Christian. They've expressed a potential interest in talking to me about being pro-deviancy, so I need to prepare a defense of the faith in this regard and hopefully get the supposed Christians thinking on the right track.
So I would like any help Zig Forums would like to offer. The most challenging aspect I face in this regard is the mental gymnastics regarding the original Hebrew and Greek. I'm almost sure they will regurgitate something they read or saw on a blog about how AKSHUALLY it doesn't really say that (like vid related)
I'll start off with some relevant verses: Leviticus 20:13: Though we no longer follow the Law, it shouldn't be overlooked that this was a capital punishment, and something that God called an abomination.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11: Paul reiterates that homosexual behavior is still a sin.
Romans 1:25-27: Paul explains that homosexuality was part of the rebellion against God, being an unnatural affront to God's purpose for Man.
Thanks bros, and wish me luck in being God's instrument to straighten the path made crooked.
Tell them God only wants what is Clean, Pure, and Righteous. Also tell them to knock it off and that they need to read their Bible with a Clean Mind or they're going to end up in a very bad place. God will not be mocked.
Bamp. Very helpful links so far. Anyone with a familiarity with Greek?
(trip dubs) Decent read, i recommend
Anyone got a version of this with sources on it? I dont doubt its authenticity but it would be nice.
Read in your link that Pope Clement, and Pope Basil the great had harsh punishments for clergy that molested youths. Basil prescribed that they be publicly beaten, given 15 years of strict penance, that they be closely monitored, and forever barred from ministry that would put them into contact with children. Such harm the liberalizing reforms have done to the Church! So much scandal could have been avoided by continued adherence to the old disciplines!
This is as bad or worse.
Romans 1:26-29 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness;
