There is a new article out there that is talking about a survey on the number of homosexuals that claim Christianity in there life. 27%. That is a high number considering the Bible not only doesn’t condone the act, it calls it an abomination. But as we know, the Bible shouldn’t be taken literal. It is more of a suggestion on how you might want to act if you feel so inclined.
That is the common line of bull that is being passed around. The Bible is out of date. God might have always been around, but there is no way He could understand the current times and culture. That is what most people would like to believe.
Instead of focusing on that aspect, it was how conservative Christians wanted to compare the fact that these people refer to themselves as “proud homosexual Christians.
Here is the quote:
Peter LaBarbera, president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality, believes Barna speaks “too cavalierly” about “homosexual Christians.”
“My test is [to] substitute another sexual sin and see if it makes sense. Would we be talking about a survey of porn-using Christians or incestuous Christians? That sounds stark, but that’s, I believe, the appropriate biblical analogy,” he contends
Why does the appropriate biblical analogy have to be the more perverse acts listed in the Bible? 1 Timothy 1:10 compares it to fornicators and liars.
1 Tim 1:8 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.
Why do we need to make homosexuality out to be one of the most horrendous things a person can do, when the Bible says it is up there with people having sex without being married?
I blame our desire to insert our own morality into the Bible. Easier to not feel bad about our own sins when we show how others are far worse. Same thing we accuse homosexuals of doing.
Problem is God doesn’t work that way. Wrong is wrong.
