I'm tired of bible, i prefer to read buddhism scriptures, they are more clearcut and profound than bible.

Not only moral issues, but issues of physical science. Ie, flat earth, center of universe, etc.I believe christianity is a false religion, therefore it will slowly compromise on many moral issues, because the bible has discrepancies and contradictions, up to human to interpret in the ways they prefer for their own good, and screw up at the end.
Many theologians have looked over this passage, and found that Soddom was almost certainly destroyed because it's inhabitations threatened to rape God's angellic messengers, and did rape the follower of God's daughter. It simply does not specifically link the destruction to homosexuality. Also, references to homosexuality as shameful etc were due to mistranslation.I mean, why did god destroy Soddom if not for the homosexual activitys?
I don't think this is reasonable. The bible does not explicitly state that blacks, or americans, or people called George Bush be allowed in church either. Rather it is assumed that as children of god, they all have the right to hear god's word, pass it on, and ask for forgiveness etc etc.Has anyone actually provided any scriptual reasoning for allowing gays in church?

Well, I could tell you why, but I think that would involve getting a little too graphic for those of strong religious conviction on this Religion Forum.Originally posted by Saint

I read an interesting article that showed an interesting way of showing how wrong this is.Now back in Biblical times, Sodomy was a plays of Homosexuals and adulter's.
I kinda figure the bible doesn't use brackets in it's formatting. Perhaps a case of retranslation until you find something convenient?As stated in Revilations, "But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral"( this means homosexuals as well as adulterors)", those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars--their place will be in the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.".
I pity you. Sounds painful.As for the bracketing, that was for anyone who had their head stuck too far up their own @$$.
Funny that then. Since you admit your faith isn't based on the bible, where does it come from? Where does this interpretation allowing you to make pronouncements as to the judgement of god come from?So, I now will stand by my faith and defend it in any way possible.
God does love everyone unconditionally, I never said he hates gays. He hates their sins. Not them. Like all sinners, he wishes them to repent and try to not sin again. Aknologeing gays in the church would be saying that being homosexual is alright and that they can remain gay and still not be sinners. That was and is my point. i do not descrimate aginst them, i just wish for theem to repent. Acknoleging gays would be like acknoleging un-repentent murderers as active members of the church. As for judging, I am only human. I, like yourself, am unable to not judge anyone. And my faith is learned from the bible. I donot know how you twisted my words to get the idea that my faith didnt come from the the Bible.Originally posted by megashawn
But, isn't it atleast good, from a christian perspective, to get gays into church to hopefully save there immortal soul (or atleast there spincter). I mean, god is supposed to love everyone unconditionally.
