I like most people. I do not want to hurt any ones feelings. I am not hateful. I do not picket on street corners. I do not consider myself a political or religious nut job. I am a Christian and want to glorify the One God with my life. I want to treat people with respect. I am not trying to impose my spiritual, political or moral beliefs upon anyone else. I DO want quality discussion from people on both sides of the issues.
Here is the question -
Is the act of homosexuality morally wrong or sinful? Why?
Follow up question -
By accepting the GLBT lifestyle will this cause any repercussions for the generations that follow? Will they be good or bad?
There are basically two sides to this coin for the Christian -
1. You believe that the Bible speaks directly to this issue, can be taken literally, and that, yes, the act of same sex relations is sinful.
2. You believe that the Bible does not speak directly to this issue, that OT passages are no longer culturally relevant, and that same sex relations are not sinful. ( I am posting links to a few sites that discuss this viewpoint ( here, here and here) because I think it is less commonly known.
What do you think?
Most of the discussion centers around passages in Leviticus 18 & 20, the story of Sodom & Gommorah in Genesis 19, and Romans 1 - if this helps.
I am waiting to hear from you all before I post my findings because I don't want to taint the discussion with my immediate opinion.
