Good reason to split

"Resurrection of the Flesh (c. 1500) by Luca Signorelli – based on 1 Corinthians 15: 52: "the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed." Well, guess I'm going to have to contact all the loved ones who stood with me beside the grave when I read those words about their dearly departed and say, "Oh, never mind that. They're already with God and Jesus." Lotta calls to make.

Instant heaven

Much is made of the verse where Jesus tells the thief , "I tell you today you will be with me in paradise." Unfortunately, the lack of punctuation in ancient times has lead to confusion. Was Jesus stating that today he was telling the man something or today the man would be in heaven? The first is more likely given his rebuke to Mary not to touch him as he had not yet gone to his father, the "Noli me tangere," Modern humans are in a big rush for everything.

As I have pointed our on other occasions, Christianity did not involve itself in marriage for its first 1,000 years. Both Calvin and Luther felt it was a purely civil matter.

Not sinful.

"This is a far more serious violation of the faith than the belief that physical relations between people of the same gender are not sinful."

I was watching/listening to a video of our bishop at last summer's annual conference. In the divine economy, some sins aren't as bad as some in our church would like to believe. This implies its a little sin.

The argument for endorsing homosexuality is a lot more logical when you just admit that you don't believe anal sex is a sin. You end up with a lot of weird arguments when you don't want to go there.

There is no "little" or "big" sin

There is just living outside of how God intends for us to live. If our theology/understanding of God leads us to different understandings of what God intends for us individually and as a church then we have a very deep problem indeed.

PRACTICE of H = Abomination

Full rebellion against Discipline means bishops have chucked their vows now looking for GC Retroactive Approval hoping God looks other way in their Phairisee Religious Careers coining Brainiacs phrases like "contextual differentiation". Totally satanic!

Prurient interest spotted

Most anal sex is committed by heterosexuals. Besides a god which obsessed over what people do in their bedrooms would be unworthy of worship anyway. Fortunately such an evil god does not exist.
