Just curious...did you used to go by "Fish hop halibut" or something on here?

I think the modern Christian church should go by what Jesus said about homosexuals, personally.

This thread title reminds me of Orgasmo.

"Hey dad?"

"...Yes son."

"Ehh, I don't think I'm gonna do hamster style anymore."

"That's nice"

No, it won't.

Not in the way that you think it will.

That is a very good rule of thumb. If only people saw it so simply.

Well, as a Christian I try to be as devout as possible. My faith in God is very strong and I believe I have good reasons for my faith. But even though I have family who are atheists and agnostics, I don't treat them any differently (although I don't seek as close of a relationship as I might otherwise, mainly because "a little leaven leavens the whole lump"). I enjoy their company and we might have the occasional debate, but there's no anger or hatred between any of us. They probably think I'm stupid for believing the way I do, but I'm used to it. Being a Christian shouldn't mean that you treat others badly.

Also, being a Christian shouldn't mean you treat certain family members differently than others because they have different theological beliefs. That too.

The Bible says homosexuality if an abomination and sex is for marriage, between a man and a woman.

Not that I agree, but that's what it say.

The Torah says that.

Jesus fulfilled the law and the prophecies and brought a new covenant.

Is "stigmatization" even a word?

I was watching a Bill Maher documentary called Religous < but spelled incorrectly available on Amazon Prime last night. It challenged the core, it's a good watch I expected something different.

Religulous. It's hilarious. And a little scary.

Considering that people treat certain family members (and people in general) differently for far less important reasons like personality, I don't really see your point.

You can argue about what the New Testament specifies in regards to homosexuality...But why stop there?

How about what Jesus says about slavery - keep in mind that it is common knowledge that in the new/old testament writings the term "servant" referred solely to slave....Not buttler, cook, etc.

Luke 12:45-48: "The lord [owner] of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him in sunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. And that servant, which knew his lord's will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more."

You'd think that Jesus would condemn such a detestable practice yet he doesn't.

How about what the NT says about women?

"It is well for a man not to touch a woman. But because of the temptation to immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband." 1 Corinthians 7:1-2"

"But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of every woman is her husband, and the head of Christ is God.... any woman who prays or prophesies with her head unveiled dishonors her head ...For if a woman will not veil herself, then she should cut off her hair ...For a man ought not to cover his head; since he is the image and glory of God; but woman is the glory of man. (For man was not made from woman, but woman from man. Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man.)" 1 Corinthians 11:2-10"

"...the women should keep silence in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be subordinate, as even the law says. If there is anything they desire to know, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church." 1 Corinthians 14:34-35"

How about what's said about non-believers in the NT?

Luke 19:27 "But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither,
and slay them before me."

Those who profess the New Testament to be morally sound have obviously skipped over a good deal of it.

Jesus Camp is very frightening.

I would agree that a lot of Christians don't really understand what the Bible says. However, to say that the New Testament is not righteous or good implies that you know what righteousness and goodness are and the the Bible does not fall into those categories. Where do you get the standards for righteousness or goodness from?

That's because the Bible was written by men, not some morally perfect, all knowing God.
