Forum – The Bible and Homosexuality – Part 1

http://www.religionnewsblog.com/18099/homosexuality-billboard

In the city of Indianapolis there is a 30-day billboard campaign put on by the pro-homosexual Metropolitan Community Church in partnership with Faith in America. The billboards, posted all over the city, carry messages such as “Jesus affirmed a gay couple,” and include Bible verses that they claim support their points.

This week, I would like to explore the issue of homosexuality and the Bible. I will be looking at the biblical texts that this group and groups like it use to support their stance that homosexuality and Christianity are not in contradiction. I will also look at text that counter these points.

I seek to undergo this task in a serious but dignified manner. I am not afraid to offend people, because I know that regardless of the issue, Christianity is offensive to many. However, I do not set out to deliberately degrade and humiliate. I only seek to present the truth as the Word of God presents it, and in doing so to bring people to a knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6). I hope this discussion is insightful and edifying.

Please feel free to comment. I only ask, for those on either side of the issue, that you show as much dignity and respect as you would like to receive from others.

    Our ministry team is also doing a series on The Indianapolis Jesus Metro Church and their take on homosexuality. As a Christian there is no other side to take than what the word of God has to say on the subject and it has plenty to say which I am sure you will cover as will we.

    Moral dilemna!

    What’s up? I’ve hung around watching and reading for ages here.

    Well, tbh I had this experience recently. Here’s what happened After classes I took the bus, I was starving so I dropped into this place for a snack and ordered a sandwitch and took it to a table and sat down after finishing it I realized I had not paid for it!

    Yeah evidently they were super busy and distracted because there was this manager/investor type looking around everywhere and talking to them. So I was just about to go up to the counter and say I hadn’t paid but then I realized if I did that the owner guy might get mad at the employees. So I just left. What should I have done do you think?
