You hit the nail on the head

Wow! This is sure to upset a few apple carts. I've often wondered how Christians choose which of the millions of sins to get all worked up about, vote about, hurt others over. You are so right. It's about their choice. Hateful choices.

Declaring sin to be righetousness

This article makes me want to vomit, mocking because the Bible tells me so. It seems the Methodist church chooses to be represented by this. As for me and my house, we will choose the Lord and His Word, not some nonsense that declares their sinful acts righteous. This is what Isaiah was talking about in
Isaiah 3:9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.

Being Gay...Because the Bible tells me so...

With all due respect you never really engage the conversation around why being Gay or Lesbian is not a sin. Like all sin, sin is sin because the Bible tells me so.......And for a Biblical Inerrantist that is enough.

Do you abide by everything the Bible says?

Leviticus says lots of things are sins. Do you care as much about all of them as you do about this thing?

And what about your beliefs?

Can it also turn out that you believe what you believe because you want to?

In all the arguments made so far on this I have yet to see any that seriously considered that being gay was in and of itself a sin. This article is pointless blather.
