SolidRanger saidWow, how did I not know that Rachel is a lesbian?!
VUandC88 saidThat is truly mind boggling. It's obvious that man has no clue what the hell he is talking about HALF of the time. He didn't even recognize quotes from his own books. He only answered one question straight forward. It is certainly hard to understand how people could believe him whole heartedly.
NotThatOld saidI watched the video also, and perhaps this chap Richard Cohen may have a point.You must really have a conflict of interests being on a website of gay men and loathing homosexuality at the same time.
Nobody is BORN gay. That is absolute nonsense! And nobody is FORCED in to a same-sex relationship. Each enters into it purely by choice.
Or else why does the Bible say that all who practice homosexuality will burn forever in Hell?
"Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. (So it was by choice then.) Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."
"Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
1 Corinthians 6:9-10.
"It is appointed for all men to die but once, after this the judgement..."
"Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. Earth and sky fled from his presence and there was no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Another book was opened, which was the book of life. The dead were judged according to what they had done as recorded in the book. The sea gave up the dead that were in it, and death and Hades gave up the dead that were in them, and each person was judged according to what he had done. Then death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. The lake of fire is the second death. If any one's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire."
If one was born gay, then these verses above would be extremely unfair, and bloody cruel, to say the least. It would be exactly like saying that one with Down's Syndrome is condemned to Hell simply because he was born with an extra chromosome in his cells, and couldn't help being the way he was.
Why is practicing homosexuality so condemned in the Bible? Isn't it because it is a choice of lifestyle rather than a genetic or other birth defect?
Yet the Bible also says:
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that who ever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (ie goes to Heaven after death)
"Whoever believes in (Jesus) is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already BECAUSE he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son."
"And this is the testimony, God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life."
1 John 5:11-12.
