Perhaps due to the same reason the North Pole was going to melt already. I do not but their conclusions or the morality that flows from it, over what the Creator states. .
We are born human. Regardless of inner proclivity, and the effects of the fall, we cannot justify acting according to sinful desires.
In the case of human sexual behavior, which is the greater sin - the homosexual who violates biblical teachings in accordance to Leviticus 20:13 - or the heterosexual who is guilty of the teachings in the book of Romans 13:8-10?
There are two kinds of sin, physical and of the heart. A drunk may be a nice person, while the clean living men may be a cold hearted vindictive man. Homosexual relations are the worse sins in the sexual area of physical sins, but it also flows from idolatry, and is usually concomitant with pride, sensuality, selfishness - and arrogant denial of sin. And adultery when "married."
Both are evil then, but few defend adultery, theft, etc. etc esp. as normative and healthy, and demands special treatment for their lifestyle.
if they have accepted a homosexual lifestyle and is comfortable with their choice they should have the freedom to live life to the fullest without discrimination, harassment, or violence.
Really? Sin away says this pseudo Christian. Even taking just the typical exercise of the "lifestyle," what other consensual act would you justify that typically, mainly among males, results in a greatly increased incidence of infections diseases and premature death, and has been the main cause behind half a million American's death, and for 79% of new HIV cases today.
And the estimated lifetime cost of treatment for one person with HIV is $379,668 (in 2010 dollars)
Meanwhile 41% of people who are transgender or gender-nonconforming have attempted suicide sometime in their lives, nearly nine times the national average.
But what they do behind closes door does not affect anyone, right?
Great insights - thanks for sharing yoiur viewpoint on the subject.
“but few defend adultery, theft, etc. etc esp. as normative and healthy, and demands special treatment for their lifestyle.”
Actually in our modern US that has LONG been essentially the case. Been there, done that. Treat everything as if it is no big deal.
