Re: 10 Reasons Against Gay Marriage

Related to Aquila's post about getting government out of the marriage business...

I would never presume to know C. S. Lewis's thoughts on same-sex marriage, but I thought this paragraph from Mere...

Re: Common Myths about Gay Christians

Unfortunately, it's not always that simple. Most gay people will tell you that they became aware of their same-sex inclinations in childhood... like sometimes before puberty.

The most common...

Re: Hanging of a Pastor in Iran.

Interesting that Pastor Youcef denies the Trinity. I didn't realize he was Oneness.

Downton Abbey

Does anyone here enjoy this show?

I just started watching the first season on Amazon Instant Video, and am already intrigued. The plot is very suspenseful and the characters captivating.

That's hard to believe. Which superintendents are you referring to?

Re: Were you crying

Very good point.

In the book of Acts, tongues and/or prophecy is often mentioned along with the baptism or filling of the Holy Spirit, but not always. We should be very careful not to go beyond...

Re: Were you crying

I was not crying. As a teenager, I was kind of self-conscious.

To my dismay, I had been pushed down to the altar by an evangelist who informed me that he was "hot on my trail." I was uncomfortable...

Re: Common Myths about Gay Christians

Good question. :thumbsup

Could it be that we have elevated marriage in the church to a place it should not hold? Do we undervalue singleness in our churches today, mimicking the culture at large?...

Re: Common Myths about Gay Christians

I think Jesus might surprise some of us. Reaching out in the gay district just seems like something he would do, imo.

Re: Common Myths about Gay Christians

Correct, sincere Christians from "Side A" honestly claim that they believe that God blesses same-sex marriages. Although I do not agree with them on that issue, I still consider many of those same...

Re: Common Myths about Gay Christians

The rapture analogy is not a very good one.

If someone has a different view of the rapture, he is not sinning. Not true with homosexual behavior, imo.

Re: Common Myths about Gay Christians

This entire thread has devolved into splitting hairs over terminology. Is this what Jesus would have called "straining at gnats and swallowing camels"?

Instead, I wish we could be talking about...

Ha! Because people freak out and don't know what to do with them! ;)

Re: Common Myths about Gay Christians

Good question, Timmy.

I believe that a homosexual couple can often experience a real bonding, union, and intimacy. There really are people in long-term, monogamous, same-sex relationships.
