I believe that is Old Testament. In the New Testament, Jesus preaches tolerance and decries your judgmentalism.Not so fast.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
I'm the same as you @The Man.Even if there is one, I am not going up there regardless. I've done more sins of all kinds in just my teen years than many people in their lifetime...
If the thief on the cross beside Christ can receive forgiveness, so can you.Even if there is one, I am not going up there regardless. I've done more sins of all kinds in just my teen years than many people in their lifetime...
That is not what I asked you for. You quoted a Biblical passage that specifically mentioned the word "homosexuals" in it. Now since it is there, I want to know the specific Biblical version and Scripture that directly mentions that word "homosexual" or "homosexuals" since the word is most certainly not in the Holy Bible at all. The word "arsenokoitai" is also not making reference to homosexuals I will inform you.Here you go....
1 Corinthians 6:9-10
Arsenokoitai is a compound word: arseno is the word for “a male,” and koitai is the word for “mat” or “bed.” Put the two halves together, and the word means “a male bed”—that is, a person who makes use of a “male-only bed” or a “bed for males.” And, truthfully, that’s all the information we need to understand the intent of 1 Corinthians 6:9.
The word meaning “bed” carries a sexual connotation in this context—the Greek koitai is the source of our English word coitus (“sexual intercourse”). The conclusion is that the word arsenokoitai is referring to homosexuals—men who are in bed with other men, engaging in same-gender sexual activity.
"Note 2. Dale B. Martin, Arsenokoitês and Malakos: Meaning and Consequences (Source: Biblical Ethics and Homosexuality: Listening to Scripture edited by Robert L. Brawley; Westminster John Knox Press, Louisville Kentucky, 1996), page 124. Nissinen also offers “frailty of body or character, illness, sentimentality, or moral weakness” as other possibilities for the meaning of this word in other contexts (page 117)."
You mean you wouldn't want to be in heaven with the likes of ripskater, Spydder, Hognoxious and John Ford? Cant you imagind how much fun it would be listening to endless tirades against liberals, gays, abortion, and whatever else they obsess over every day?Sounds like a very boring place then... I'm starting to think I'd probably prefer Hell, if that's where all the fun party people apparently head to..
Been a Christian all my life. How is it remotely possible you still don't see the words fornicator, thief, swindler, adulterer, greedy in there?The left will have to continue to attack the scriptures and Christianity, if they want to normalize homosexuality. Christians must stand firm as the rest of the world seem to accept unnatural behavior as a norm.
But, as Christians, we ought not to focus on one sin over another. Adultery or fornication are just as wrong in the eyes of God.
But, all who have strayed from God, can be re-united with Him if they confess their sins and ask for forgiveness.
I am not trying to give a sermon here, but that is the way I see it.
