I understand the love you neighbor concept

But unfortunately this post probably borders on the same level as the copy pasta of the atheist college professor and the lone christian student

Essentially the professor challenges the student by saying that if God existed he wouldn't let this (whatever or so) item from breaking when he drops it.

The professor drops it and it rolls down his pants leg and low and behold it did not break.

The pastor in this post is biblically wrong.

The old laws probably state harsh things of divorce (not sure about "stoning" thing, death for adultery, but I'm not so sure about flat divorce, I could be wrong though) However these are the old laws, and after Jesus's coming, were rendered null such as the need for sacrifice was, also the harshest old laws generally only belonged to certain sects as the Leviticus laws belong to the Levites (the tribe ofpriests)

Jesus may not talk about homosexuality, but that is because the ones he taught (educated Jewish men, and other Jews) knew well of what the old testament had to say of homosexuality, its the same reason Jesus didn't speak much of murder and theft (which doesn't make either of these "ok").

Paul, however, taught many gentiles who would not be as well versed, and Paul spoke a great deal of homosexuality condemning the act (not the person). And Paul is arguably the #2 authority outside of the trinity.

As a Christian you love the homosexual, you do not, however, love or approve of his actions.

Does this mean you kill him? Or aggressively scold him? Or screw him in some way? No it doesn't, but it does mean you should try and teach them, after all you are not trying to save something as petty as their earthly life, you are trying to save them from eternal suffering (the lack of trying can be morally argued as worse than murder assuming Christianity is 100% true)

I do not hate homosexuals, but I do not approve of their actions, and this (not OP'S post) is biblically sound

As in teach them not to go on with homosexual ways which are considered "sinful". People cannot help who they love and they certainly cannot be taught to love someone.

Damn, someone went through and thumbed everyone down. I'm sure that's not helping you.

Think of it more like this: rather than unlocking new skills and such, it's more like DJ 4DM1N wants to make sure you're contributing positively to the community before he gives you the ability to post pictures. The way he can do this is by making you need a certain amount of thumbs first, proving that people like what you have to say.
As for the levels, I would guess that's just a good way for the individual user to keep track of their progress.

AS A PRACTICING CATHOLIC (please don't kill me, FJ), I have to ask why people think that rules against homosexuality are automatically hatred? I'm not telling or asking any of you to agree with Catholic teaching, but do parents make rules out of hate? Do laws/rules solely exist because of hatred? As for divorce and stoning wives, divorce is actually still not accepted by most Christians and all Catholics. It's still believed to be a grave sin, unless there's an anullment, in which case, the marriage never existed. Now, stoning... (please read the whole thing before you get mad) is actually not condemned. Except... Jesus said you could only stone if you were without sin. Every man is born with sin; therefore, no one may stone people. The idea is that many sins are worthy of death, but mercy is compatible with justice in this life. I'M SIMPLY POINTING OUT THE CATHOLIC BELIEF SYSTEM, I'm not telling you to agree.

What does that have to do with beating people to death with rocks based on sexual preference? And no, dark skinned people came about because darker skin tones took less damage from intense sun exposure, and then small scale natural selection took place in Africa and many island regions. It has nothing to do with Satan. However, the hundreds of years of mistreating people because of darker skin tones was probably an act of Satan because I don't believe humans can be that cruel and jaded without some kind of external influence.

black people are less evolved apes from the species homo ergaster that branched off human evolution and they moved up to be homo sapiens idaltu - only getting put under homo sapiens because politically correct politicians didnt want to address themopenly as a seperate species, BUT at the same time did count them as seperate so they had to fight to gain access to human rights

if they were human like the rest of us, why did they need special privelege to be included as humans

if you want to make it religious, yes satan played a part in it,....back when god first made man...satan realised he didnt have the power to copy that but COULD make a cheap copy that looked similar to humans but openly different knowing humans would open up to feelings of hatred and violence and destroy gods plan of humans remaining a peaceful people

well to put it another way, the original garden of eden was an actual place in the middle east in what later became known as Mesopotamia, and the garden of eden was in fact a food forest where there were enough of every type of plant to sustain itself

since mesopotamia is in the middle east, the first humans were arabs, and the ideal of being kicked out of eden was in fact a shortened version of humanity breeding too much and overusing the food forest till it couldnt sustain itself and died off, leaving the desert it is now

since the first humans were arabs, every other race that came later - whites, asians, and native siberians, are also humans, and the things from africa that were around before arabs, arent human

Comparing parents making rules and laws don't really apply here. Things like murder being illegal and parents not letting their children drink before reaching maturity are made to prevent harms inherent from the action. Homosexuality doesn't cause any negative side effects and there is no legitimate interest involved in preventing it other than tradition. I understand you're trying to describe the reasoning of your faith but comparing anti-homosexual rules are comparable to parents making rules or important government interest is understating the importance of ones own right to feel safe and not persecuted for things that they cannot change about themselves.

In the physical, sense, yeah, there wouldn't necessarily be any negative side effects. Except, there's the spiritual aspect of things. The Church(s) isn't (aren't) called the mother for no reason. It may sound ridiculous that something that doesn't hurt other people would be worthy of punishment, but consider how even cursing (and I don't mean cussing) is believed to be a grave sin.

No one chooses to be attracted to whom they're attracted to, obviously, but homosexuality is the act. Everyone is tempted to do things, but the temptation isn't the sin. Of course, a life like that is tough, but we believe that if someone is in a situation like that, they have a special calling to chastity. That may sound crappy to most people, but the reward would be unimaginable. And gay people are not the only ones called to chastity (we believe, anyways).

Now you see this is the point in the discussion where I don't see why this is reasonable. I can absolutely understand why cursing (I'm thinking you mean putting a curse on someone because you said not cussing) is a huge sin, the intent of cruelty is there, But in homosexuality the only intent is to promote love in same-gender relationships. Now you said that you believe homosexuals have a calling to chastity and that the reward for this would be unimaginable. The questions I have for this are: Why have so many religious faiths seen the very state of being a homosexual as a sin in the past if it was truly just a calling to abstinence? Why is no one informing homosexuals that they have this calling and instead acting as if their very existence were a smudge on the world? How are non-homosexuals called into chastity and how would they know? Would a high ranking member of the church be able to keep their position if they were to publicly announce their homosexuality followed by a "but it's okay because I'm abstinent"? And how much greater a reward can there be than going to heaven which is the supposed metropolis of happiness and peace and why would it only be offered to homosexuals who are told they have no place in the church to begin with?

Well, my point was more that, while someone is not necessarily hurting someone, in a respect, he/she actually is. That's why I mentioned cursing, which is the misuse of God's name. It's merely disrespect, yet it's among the worst sins. The reason we believe homosexuality is offensive (rather, an unintended attack) to God, is because of teachings on sex and marriage. The teaching is that sex should be within a marriage, in the act of procreation where there is openness of children (pregnancy). The teaching is also that the act of sex is a holy gift and should also not be disrespected by its misuse. So, because of the law, the misuse (homosexuality and many other things) is an offense to God.

As for your questions... those are good questions. I don't know why nobody says anything. I guess it's such a hot button issue, many Christians are too afraid to get in the middle of an argument where the other Christians are hateful and the non Christians say all Christians are hateful. I know a lot of people who share my views, but never say anything, because they're too scared. As for non-homosexuals, they'd just have to pray about it. That being said, I just want to point out, as long as one is not sinning in other ways, not following your calling is not a sin. Following one's calling would just lead to a happier physical life. That's what we believe anyways. As for those in what we'd actually call Holy Orders, rank would make no difference. Simply a priest or deacon would have to leave his office. Or even if it were Pope, same would apply. Abstinence wouldn't make a difference. I'm not fully trained in Canon law, so I couldn't explain that in detail, because it takes many years to learn. If someone had no place in this world because of the homosexual act, then no one would have a place in this world, because everyone sins... a lot. As for heaven, im running out of characters, so ill respond when i get back from dinner.

Why can't it be the "good people way"?
Why the Christian way?

Because this is a Christian pastor talking about the bible to a Christian audience. Did you even read the content?

I gave you the answer and you called me a troll.
That is literally why "The Christian Way" is a phrase and "The Good Person Way" is not.

And I don't mean in the christian pastor/audience sense. Christianity has been the dominant religion of the first world for the past 2000 years. Up until very recently, a good person was one who was also a good Christian.

God....
Really


I have no problem if people are gay
I don't care if people are fat or overweight either
As long as they don't wear tight ass clothes or when they say they're gay I'm like "cool I don't give a ****."
<this **** is what disgusts me

That last sentence still didn't seem wholehearted. Christians HAVE to support equality? So regardless of your actual feelings, you only accept gay marriage because God told you to? Talk about doing the right things for the wrong reason!

When you try to describe racial science to libturds and point out the facts of the IQ bell curve (in correlation with the human races), for instance, why is it that libturds just start pouting and blubbering about "racism?"

Is it too much to ask for libturds to be open to new ideas? Why are they even called libturds, if not so?

its a gritty combination of taking political correctness to an insane degree and straight up ignorance. As soon as anyone does anything remotely racial related, they pounce! It is too much because these people don't like what they don't understand...which is usually change

Wouldn't accepting homosexuals for who they are rather than God's opinion of them be more 'Christian," or are there still people out there who just smile and nod to what the bible says? There's no need to be a yes-man, you're opinion shouldn't revolve around a 2000 year old textbook

That's pretty much how Christianity works. If they didn't do what god told them to they wouldn't be Christians. Of course nobody stones a woman that divorces her husband, so is anybody really Christian?

This is why most religions are screwed up. There's to many contradictions within their beliefs that people have to chose what to obey and what to disregard, thus people become divided and wars break out.

I left my old church that was 5 minutes from my house to go to a church an hour and a half away because the pastor there is just like this one.

The Bible is not a textbook, therefore, I believe it is not something that must be seen as absolute fact. Rather, I find it to be comforting and sometimes inspirational like many other books. I am inspired by some of the messages in the Bible like I am inspired by some of the messages I may find reading a fiction book or a scholarly novel. However, likewise, there are also messages in the Bible and these other books that I do not agree with, therefore, I do not live my life according to them.

As a Christian, I believe it is my responsibility to be a good person to others. That is all. I believe that you can be a good person without God, but I just happen to be a good person who believes in God due to the fact that my family is religious.

I do not believe that God is proud of Christians such as the Westboro Baptist Church, because they are not good, loving, accepting people. They are evil people who attempt to justify themselves under the banner of Christianity, and to that effect discriminate against those who live their lives a little differently to theirs.

I will always value a kindly atheist over a hateful Christian. And I do believe God will do the same.

TL;DR: This pastor is the kind of person I believe we should all strive to be, religious or not.
