Irony has no bounds with this one. lol
Jesus is not the one that spelled out the doctrines of Christianity. For those Christians look to Paul, and he actually had quite a few things to say about homosexuality.
Telling someone that the Bible says that something is wrong is not persecution. The Holocaust was the persecution, telling people to keep sex in the bedroom is good manners.
Truth is not conditional.
I do not have the right to use the woman's dressing room, you claiming you are a woman even though you have a penis and insisting you have the right to use a dressing room I cannot is demanding special rights.
You have the right to be offended, you do not have the right to tell me I cannot stand on the street corner and yell that your behavior is a sin.
Civil ceremony is an oxymoron.
If you insist that my religious views bother you then my stimulation of the public nerve has become your moral compass, and you are lost.
I suggest you take the time to read the New Testament. Specifically, you should read 1 Corinthians 6.
I am supposed to make my moral decisions based on what you think my grandchildren will think about them? My great-grandfather's generation elected the first homosexual president, you still don't know who he was. By the time my grandchildren come along we might discover the cure for homosexuality.
Jesus did not forbid judging.
God forbade judging, but that doesn't stop supposed Christians from trying to 'save' homosexuals by forcing their morals down their throats.
God did not forbid judging. He did, however, forbid lying about what He said. I suggest you think about that the next time you want to put words in His mouth.
The Bible is a book, written by men. How are we to believe that the words in the Bible are actually the words of God?
Actually, The scriptures explcitly command us to judge righteously.
You have an excellent question. There is the simple ways the scriptures teach:
You can learn the same way Peter did:
Asking is always a good way:
My own experiences tell me that these passages are true because it was by following their counsel that I came to learn for myself that the Bible contains the Word of God. The Lord revealed Himself to me through the Holy Spirit that burned that witness into my heart. That's the only reason I can be confident there was a God. If I hadn't had my own personal experiences with the Spirit and the Atonement, I wouldn't know any more than anyone else.
You can find out for yourself. The scriptures are clear that we can know they are true if we put them to the test.
Excuse me, aren't you the one that just tired to argue that God forbids judging? Are you basing that statement on some special relationship with God that the rest of us are not privy to, or on your own interpretation of the Bible you are now trying to argue cannot be used to determine what God said? If the former, I demand some type of evidence that this relationship exists, if the latter, your question to me is senseless.
Paul wasn't fond of women either, as I recall.
