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.

Notable Quotes

“The period of Lent is given us to focus on what can be changed by listening carefully to the word of God. The word of God brings the clarity about injustices, but also how we are given a new opportunity to change injustices to justice. God has given that we in the death of Jesus Christ have been liberated from our trespasses as he was raised for our justification.”

– The Rev. Olav Fyske Tveit, top executive of the World Council of Churches, in a March 20 sermon marking World Water Day.

The Rev. Junius B. Dotson, top executive of Discipleship Ministries, lays out his agency’s plans to help United Methodists reach people for Jesus. He addressed his agency’s board in Nashville, Tenn.“We have tried to reverse this decline by trying to offering technical fixes, tinkering with our worship services, collecting huge amounts of data, tinkering with metrics and then when the metrics didn’t fit the picture we wanted, we readjusted the metrics.  [United Methodists] can’t program our way back to vitality; there is no quick fix."

– The Rev. Junius B. Dotson, top executive of Discipleship Ministries, unveiling his goals for the agency to create 1 million new Christian disciples over the next four years, reported by Heather Hahn of United Methodist News Service.
