Is that your goal?
LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LA LASo please... continue to exhibit your delusions at your leisure - I, for one, get a kick out of goading you into this sort of self-abusing behavior
Beliefs about homosexuality have never been on the list.The Apostle's Creed
I believe in God the Father Almighty,
Maker of heaven and earth.
And in Jesus Christ,
His only Son, our Lord;
Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit,
Born of the Virgin Mary,
Suffered under Pontius Pilate,
Was crucified, died and was buried.
He descended into hell;
The third day He rose again from the dead;
He ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father Almighty;
From there He shall come to judge the living and the dead.
I believe in the Holy Spirit,
The holy Christian Church,
The Communion of Saints,
the Forgiveness of sins,
The Resurrection of the body,
And the Life everlasting.
As a former Southern Baptist, the key concept was unity in essentials (see above), liberty in non-essentials. Beliefs about homosexuality fall into the non-essential category.
Personally I've always thought that religions that have to tout/evangelize/sell/convert to their faith are lacking a certain confidence in it. They lack the faith that it is THE faith and hence indulge in proselytising in order to convince themselves as much as anyone else.
I note that those of the faiths that don't do it (Judaism/Buddhism/Taoism/Quakers) convince more by their quiet devotion than by any amount of street theatre.
"The crisis will end when fear changes sides" - Pablo Iglesias Turrión
"Austerity is used as a cover to reconfigure society and increase inequality and injustice." - Jeremy Corbyn
It's two totally different concepts. Evangelicals seem to be about numbers..."How many people can I persuade to pray a certain prayer?" Other protestants seem to be more about teaching people how to live in a way that reflects the life and example of Christ.
I'd like to see stats on that.I note that those of the faiths that don't do it (Judaism/Buddhism/Taoism/Quakers) convince more by their quiet devotion than by any amount of street theatre.
