    If that is all you see, you have not read much of the Bible.

    Quickly: Paul was considered by some a profit and apostle. Some consider him neither. Look to the holy spirit to guide you and you can't go wrong.

    That is so distorted it's not even funny.

    He knew what was coming, he knows what has been. Jesus never interfered in politics either (for example,) because his teachings were about spiritual salvation, no political subjects. Nor where they about worldly wants outside of what we need. His law is a spiritual guide to salvation as is Paul's teaching.

    The fact is if we as Christians do not preach the message of Gods love, we are not preaching the correct message. We should be preaching that immorality separates you from Gods love. and puts your soul in danger. Not that homosexuals are bad people or deserving of death.

    I do not support same sex marriage either but we have a secular government. It is the responsibility of our government to protect the minority form the majority.

    Jesus preached we are to lead by example. He gave us a guide for our spiritual salvation, not a system of government.

    I am all over the place now. I am done.
    I'm trying to discern where you stand on the issue of homosexuality. Would you enlighten me please?

    Perhaps if you use more exclamation marks, that will get them on your side.

    People who are gay are no more than adulterers or fornicators or any other sinner. No sin is committed until they lust after someone else or preform sexual acts. At that point they can still be forgiven as none of us are righteous or without sin.

    So it is not a sin to be a homosexual/lesbian. It is the actions that make it sinful.

    I don't believe they are born that way. However, I surmise it's from choices and influences. It's a sin that one should repent of.

    As I always say: Hate the sin, not the sinner.

    Though I find homosexuality immoral and disgusting, I would risk my life defending such a person from a threat of death.

    IMO, nobody ever told anyone to hate sin. Sin is simply not adhering to God's rules. It doesn't make sense to hate it. It's like hating it when somebody cheats at a game. Someone can hate cheating all they want, but that isn't going to make the cheater atone for doing it and it isn't going to bring either person any closer to their God.

    I hate sin because it corrupts the soul and leads people to hell. I hate the sin of murder, etc, etc. If you cannot even hate sin, then do you hate nothing?

    Hm, even with the pink writing. You have a point.

    The only reason Christianity is not as messed up as Islam is because it has been tamed by the rise of Atheist, secularism and ofc. The Enlightenment. Christianity as a political system would be as oppressive, dangerous and unfair as the Sharia in Islam.

    And on topic, African Christians killing Gays? Lulz. That isn't news.
    Most if not all religious African countries have a massive problem with Gays. Both in Christian and Muslim countries because of text and religion that feeds this hatred

    You should see Uganda's own magazine which "outs gays" so they can be beaten.

    This is correct, at least for me. I don't "hate" sin although I do not condone it. It has more to do with sadness (for me anyway) than hatred.
