Christian views on homosexual relationships
Une journee avec le Petit Prince by Antoine de Saint-ExuperyCest le premier livre que jai lu en francais, et je laime beaucoup. Je me souviens avoir le lu en lituanien il y a qualques annees, et alors ja pense quil ete tres simple et meme un peu primitif. Cependant maintenant jai decouvert la beaute de son simplicite. Les phrases courtes de Petit Prince cachent la signification tres grande. Ce bien sur nest pas un livre pour les enfants principalement.
Les deux choses qui je appris etait:
1) Jy gagne, dit le renard, a cause de la couleur du ble.
2) Ce qui embellit le desert, dit le petit prince, cest quil cache un puits quelque part.
Independamment ce qui se passe, le plus important cest les souvenirs qui un personne remportes.
En plus, qui fait la difference entre une fleur et des millions de autres fleurs cest le savoir que seulement cette fleur-la est ma fleure. Meme chose avec les gens. Peut-etre cest le but damour tout ensemble: le savoir de choses cache dans un personne qui peut sembler du premier coup doeil un personne comme tous les autres.
Homosexuality, Marriage, and Sexual Identity
The relationship of homosexuality to Christianity is one of the main topics of discussion in our culture today. There are a number of other books that take the opposite view, namely that the Bible either allows for or supports same sex relationships. Over the last year or so I and other pastors at Redeemer have been regularly asked for responses to their arguments. The two most read volumes taking this position seem to be those by Matthew Vines and Ken Wilson. Hence the length. Vines and Wilson relate stories of people who were sure that the Bible condemned homosexuality. However, they were brought to a change of mind through getting to know gay people personally.

A growing number of religious groups have issued statements officially welcoming LGBTQ people as members. What is at the heart of the position that the Bible is clear on the subject "that homosexuality is forbidden by God? How do you view the Bible's or God's position? Sincerely, Susan. A : Dear Susan, At the heart of the claim that the Bible is clear "that homosexuality is forbidden by God" is poor biblical scholarship and a cultural bias read into the Bible. The Bible says nothing about "homosexuality" as an innate dimension of personality.

Increasing political and religious advocacy for homosexual 1 practices, same-sex marriage, and alternate sexual identities has prompted us to clarify our position on these critical issues. We believe that all matters of faith and conduct must be evaluated on the basis of Holy Scripture, which is our infallible guide 2 Timothy — Since the Bible does speak to the nature of human beings and their sexuality, it is imperative that the Church correctly understands and articulates what it actually teaches on these matters which have now become so controversial and divisive. In effect, they seek to set aside almost two thousand years of Christian biblical interpretation and ethical teachings. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear.

Gay Evangelicals Argue That Bible Does Not Condemn Homosexuality
A few years ago the Ramsey Colloquium—a group of Christian and Jewish scholars—published a sharp critique of "the gay and lesbian cause" which they titled "The Homosexual Movement. It hardly needs to be said that entering the debate in this way exposed the Ramsey Colloquium to angry denunciation and was, for some of its members, an act of courage. My purpose is not to criticize the declaration's reasoning but to draw your attention to one paragraph as the starting point for our conversation:. This is a profoundly counter-cultural vision of human sexuality and one that can be helpful as we struggle with the moral question that is before us: should the church affirm faithful relationships between same-sex partners?
