I Got A Bit Upset by a Billboard

I saw a story depicting a billboard from a group of churches claiming Christ affirmed a "gay couple" in Matthew 8:5-13, when there is nothing in the Word to state that at all.

This made me feel a little better. I guess the state of Texas gives us some good things and some bad.

It is just people trying to justify homosexuality anyway they can.

Re: I Got A Bit Upset by a Billboard

Why exactly does homosexuality need to be justified? Just because somebody that you believe was the son of god and a 12 year old girl who got pregnent without having sex supposedly said that it was wrong doesn't mean it is. In fact the entire bible is Racist,Sexist,Blaphemous and in all honesty just plain old fucking stupid. I believe all organized religion is detramental to society But just because I feel like that doesn't mean that christians,muslims,jews,buddhists,hindus etc should be barred from practising their beliefs because its NONE OF MY GOD DAMN BUSNIESS.
What people do with their lives has nothing to do with you. If gay people want to get married let them. If you guys want to have a problem with it, go pray for god to change it and do your thing. BACK THE FUCK OFF...

Your brother in Christ

Re: I Got A Bit Upset by a Billboard

Faceless, you are correct.

Thank you Truly for the reminder too that even with homosexuality and homosexual acts being sin, there is forgiveness for that sin.

Buried and Gone, I'm sorry that all this would bother or offend you so much that you would feel the need to sarcastically call yourself a brother in Christ. Now I realize I don't know you, but obviously I have a hard time believing you're sincere with that signature. Although I have come across almost all types of people, including those who considered themselves "spiritual but not religious", and those who just had no use for religion.

As for the rest, regarding your opinions you have on the bible, it's a shame you feel that way. It really is, because it's obvious that you either had no one who could actually teach it correctly to you, or you never took the time or had the mindset to study it seriously.

Now if you want discuss things a little more openly and with more respect, hey we'll do that. Otherwise, have a good day.

Jason

Re: I Got A Bit Upset by a Billboard

Well, i did say it jokingly. But I do think Christ was an awesome person. The son of god? No.
I have a hard time believing that people can read the bible and not call bullshit on it. I believe in a god, in an afterlife. I am anti-abortion but pro-gay marriage. Most of what the bible says i find to be morally wrong though. people having children with their own family. Lot offering his own daughters to be raped instead of the two angels who visited him. Does nobody else see anything wrong with that?
I usually choose to go straight to mocking religious peoples views becuase lets face it, most of them are fucking crazy and 99.9% are just unwilling to listen to reason. I'm sorry if i offended you but in thinking about it I would consider myself a "brother in christ" just not by your deffenition

Comments like this have always been interesting to me. Certainly the most reliable and detailed source we have when it comes to records of Christ's life is of course the bible. I take it you think claims that he was were exaggerations? Do you believe He made that claim Himself?

Any specific cases of this off the top of your head? I think I know where you're going with this. One thing worth mentioning, I think, is that it was in a way kind of almost a necessity at first just due to there not being enough people around to have children outside one's family. Once the population was such that it was not in a sense a necessity anymore, then it became as immoral and sinful as what you or most other people consider it to be.

Lot offering his own daughters to be raped instead of the two angels who visited him. Does nobody else see anything wrong with that?

Don't you think rape is a little strong? If a father offers his daughter, I don't think you can call it rape... especially at that time. We might be inclined to almost think that today if the daughter wanted no part of it, but again we're talking about different times and different culture. We would look at something much milder like an arranged marriage as being not "wrong" per se, but odd to say the least. The main point was what the people of Sodom and Gomorrah were doing was unnatural and against God's way, and Lot knew this and knew what type of men he was dealing with. I'm pretty sure Lot didn't want these men touching his daughters, but didn't know what else to do or say to get rid of them. Besides, just because it's recorded in the bible that Lot said that very thing, that doesn't mean that it was approved of by God. I have yet to see a commandment from God anywhere in scripture saying "Thou shalt offer your daughters to sexually deviant and crazed men" Recording an event in history is not necessarily endorsing that same action.

I appreciate the apology. As I said before, have a good day.

No, I don't think they were exagerated I think that many of them were just plain ol made up. I think whoever wrote the bible knew of Christ and took the man who was an amazing person and a great leader and gave him superpowers. I don't think Christ would have wanted a book written about him and deffenitly it should be given away for free, not sold. Look at the vatican? Christ must be spinning in his grave when he sees that monstrosity.

"Any specific cases of this off the top of your head? I think I know where you're going with this.

Off the top of my head? Not specifically. I do not remember who exactly it was but it was a man who lived in a cave with his two daughters and the two daughterrs got him drunk a seduced him. The thing is I don't think the worlds population was ever that low ( I DO NOT believe in evolution by the way).


"Don't you think rape is a little strong? If a father offers his daughter, I don't think you can call it rape... especially at that time.

While you raise a good point about it possibly not being aproved of by god I find it was heavily implied that it was. What else could he do? 1). tell them to leave. 2). He has angels there, can't they do something about it? Or atleast ask god to kill them. or 3). Let them rape the angels. If you were in that situation would you give your daughters to a bunch of crazy men?

Sir, we are never going to agree on the meaning of scripture haha. Simply because something I think is factually and morally wrong you think is the way people should live their lives. Maybe I am right, Maybe you are right, Maybe we are both right, Maybe neither of us are right. I'll lead my life by what i think is right and you lead your by what you think is right. What happens will happen.
But aside from the fact that the bible says homosexuality is wrong. Can you give me a good reason why you think it is wrong or why even if you do disaprove people should not be able to live their lives the way they want?

But Jason, I am VERY impressed with you sir. You are the anti-stereotype of a religious nut case. I respect that more than you know
