"Killing someone is not the same as stealing from someone. To pretend that God would view them as the same speaks poorly for God"
I think that's not exactly what he might have meant.
This is a thread discussing sins of a sexual nature. I believe he may have been contrasting straight sexual sins against gay ones.
As someone who lives with this issue (being a gay Christian) I have had to formulate my owns thoughts on the matter and I have come to the conclusion that "straight sins" are no better than "gay sins".
Killing someone is one of the 10 Commandments. I believe those by far carry more weight that things written by any of the various authors.
As I've mentioned before back in the 70's I personally knew and lived with a Pastor of an MCC church in a very very large city that was in the early stages of being established. I was definitely indoctrinated into the mindset but never was quite able to come to the conclusion they were teaching back then.
I've read Troy Perry's book and I think homosexuality is categorically a sin and that IS the whole point of Christianity. By knowing Christ we will not be held accountable for our sinful nature (that we all have).
Either you believe that stuff or you don't.
I choose to believe Christianity is the truth because in this crazy world and all the things I have heard and read, it's the one thing that seems to make sense to me.
I've got 3 days off so I'm not posting any more.
