One comment on “Gays, Christians and Those Two Nasty Words: The “N” Word and the “R” Word

  1. As stated on my “About” page, “I appreciate all comments… However, I will not respond to comments that attempt to control or otherwise rewrite my ideas or stories.” With that said, This is not a platform for banter, but I do appreciate all comments.

    The references you are stating as undeniable proof of Gods wrath against homosexuality is intriguing, however I must point out a few things. The passages you quote from the book of Romans from the King James version of the Bible are letters Paul wrote to the Romans regarding their behavior as he was making an attempt to convince Rome to embrace Christianity.

    Romans 1:22-23 “[22]Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, [23]and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man, and to birds and fourfooted beasts and creeping things.” These are all actions heterosexuals and homosexuals, Christians and non-Christians share alike, even today-many profess wisdom, and many create articles of Christian art, which corrupts the very essence of Gods nature. Praying to statues, placing ones faith in a crucifix, and the list is endless.

    I am glad to see Paul declare in Romans 1:24 a persons body belongs to him/herself, many activist seem to be confused on that matter.

    Romans 1:25 is Paul’s message in a nutshell, God desires worship and man deems it his position to force this issue on his/her fellow man/woman.

    Romans 1:26-27 When Paul wrote the Epistle while in Corinth to the Romans in AD56-57, the word “natural” had several meanings [a quick cross reference and word study in the Septuagint would clear this up.].

    So, this passage, taken out of context as it was written by Paul in AD56-57 to the Romans, is NOT undeniable proof of Gods hate against homosexuals. And for the record, the bible is riddled with passages, parables, and commandments to LOVE. If the energy placed in loving and embracing the homosexual community was one iota near the amount of hate, blame, and denouncement against them, maybe there would be a few more sitting in the pews come Sunday morning.

    Thanks,
