    This may or may not be true -- but, for it to be true, you have to describe the tenets of Christianity to their full extent and show that what you described is, indeed, the full extent of those tenets.

    When I said what I was told what constituted Chistianity, you didn't have a problem with it, but then in the next post went on to imply that the full tenets of Christianity were more in depth on the matter, so I asked where the tenets were listed, especially the ones that would shed more light on homosexuality. If you didn't imply this, then why did you bring the tenets up?

    Okay, I've stopped caring what you think.

    My statement that what you said was 'all well and good", it was in reference to you stating your admittedly confused opinion on the matter. I am certainly not going to tell you your religious beliefs are wrong, but to not disagree with you in no way necessitates that I agree what you said is factually correct.

    but then in the next post went on to imply that the full tenets of Christianity were more in depth on the matter
    I said that "...you also need to consider if what you said is fully inclusive of all the tenets of Christianity". This implies nothing, it states openly that you need to consider the possibility that Christianity includes more than just that rather than simply assume what you stated is indeed the entirety of Christian tenets. Don't you agree?

    I think if someone were to respond to your questions as you've responded to mine you'd have given up on him by now, as I'm now doing with you.

    Re: Christian preacher arrested for saying homosexuality is a sin

    ow my head hurts trying to keep up with this thread

    I always thought that the only tenet of "Christianity" was belief in God and that Jesus Christ, son of God, died for our sins. The rest of the Bible is pretty much open to interpretation, which is why there are so many different sects of Christian believers. (I.E. those who believe homosexuality is something horrible and unforgivable and they're going to hell....and those who believe its a sin just like any other...and those who don't believe its a sin at all)Then there are religions that don't follow the Bible, who normally don't identify themselves as Christians, but as other things.

    I guess my question is...as I am still confused...who said there are other tenets of Christianity and what are they?????
