Quote:I do not recall many of Jesus's famous sermons where he goes at homosexuals. Given his track record in the Bible, he would be more likely to welcome them into the flock than anything else. He does so with prostitutes and others that have been outcast or committed sins.
Quote:He welcomed people into his flock if they changed their ways and joined him. You horribly misrepresent his mingling with sinners that, instead of building a bridge for them to walk over and join, he was pardoning their behaviors to continue as they were. That's just not true.
Quote:It is in there but there are a number of things condemned that modern Christians do not pay much mind to, what makes homosexuality special then?
Quote:It's not. I grew up attending church and I can tell you, I've never heard a sermon devoted to homosexuality once. In fact, homosexuality was hardly mentioned as it was just assumed that everyone knew what the Bible's position was.
Quote:There's something you just don't get and I'll give you a perfect analogy. Any church will accept a drunkard into their fold, but if that drunkard is always coming to church with alcohol on his breath and saying there's nothing wrong with being a drunkard - it's his lifestyle choice - he will not remain a church member for long. If, on the other hand, he struggles with drunkenness but rejects it's okay and tries to refrain, the church wouldn't dismiss him but pray and work with him continuously.
Quote:You see, you act like homosexuality has some big X on its back but that's just not the case. You ignore other scenarios where a church would have a problem accepting an unrepentant member into its fold. It's just that these situations aren't as common/newsworthy.
