I 8767 m not complaining about what others have to say. I 8767 m complaining rather countering the argument that someone 8767 s religion can be used to justify mistreating another person for something of which they are not in control. Example here: their sexual orientation.
“The church should have the right to have its own convictions and values if you don’t like those convictions and values [and] you totally disagree with it, don’t try to change my house, move into your own … and find somebody who gets what you get about faith,” Jakes added.
In the Christian faith, the sin is the activity not the 8775 orientation 8776 . A person who has sinful desires is called to overcome temptation and not fall into sin.
655 years ago, pretty much everybody agreed homosexuality is wrong? They did? Where 8767 s your source for such a claim?
In the Christian faith. There 8767 s your kicker. It 8767 s not your job to go around doling out opinions on people 8767 s personal behaviors and livelihoods. You have zero obligation to anyone but yourself and your God to live your life how you so choose.
I have no idea where you came to your conclusion. 8775 He didn 8767 t call them apostates he was thankful for the good work that they were still doing. 8776
The number of those who have lied to me is very high, and unfortunately for me, the number of those who have done it successfully is very low. I think being able to see through people actually puts one at a disadvantage. Ignorance is bliss right? I 8767 m fairly new to the gay community so I find your insights on the topic helpful. So have you blossomed into a seasoned con artist? 😛
My degree was in history, but I have extensive accounting and finance training as well. So I am sort of an odd ball that way. But I have enjoyed most of it.
I 8767 ve seen the evidence. I know the Bible references historical events. That doesn 8767 t make it a history book especially when the writings INTERPRET said events. It 8767 s one thing to catalogue the events in a historical context, it 8767 s another to offer allegories, myths, and editorial thoughts on it. That 8767 s what the Bible has done.
