    I "believe" that gay people will not change their orientation
    any more than you will change your orientation.

    I will think of and treat every one of my gay neighbors
    exactly as I would wish them to think of and treat me.
    I hope you can forgive my efforts to follow far more strategic scriptures.

    Galatians 5:14 The entire Law is fulfilled in a single decree:
    "Love your neighbor as yourself."
    Matthew 19:19 Honor your father and mother, and love your neighbor as yourself.'
    Luke 6:31 Do to others as you would have them do to you.
    Matthew 7:12 Therefore all things whatever you would that men should do to you, …
    Galatians 5:14 For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this; You shall …
    James 2:8-16 If you fulfill the royal law according to the scripture, You shall …

    That word is not found in most translations for good reason.

    This refers to having sex with both, possibly at the same time.

    Just in some churches. Everyone is encouraged to put their
    faith in Jesus and not in the whims of society.

    I don't wanna go off the thread, but the statement you made is so true, and it's like we are sleeping on the fact that there is an bigger agenda with the LGBTQ+ community. Not necessarily each person, but those who are the leaders of it. I'm noticing that there is a lot of push to legalize forcing people to buy into whatever agenda they are having, to normalize all sexual immorality.Neutrality of gender is being thought policed, Beastiality is being normalized, pedophilia is starting to become a talk, and zoophilia as well. The community has already set up a successful blueprint with the LGBT for all other sexual immoralities to steep in through introduction of it in media, politics, education, and by silencing the voice of the parents and those that oppose it.

    Notice that children are now starting to get more say about the drastic decisions about their body at an early age. Its typical for people already to say that they always felt they were gay or lesbian, or trapped in this body from a young age. They are being fed ideals about sexuality in the schools. They are being encouraged to participate in events that exposes them to these ideas. At this point, it not a far fetch idea that children do know what sex is, and have impression that it ought to be explore however they feel, and those oppose should be policed and punished. Call me crazy, but the consent needed for kids at some point, is gonna be challenged. Again the blueprint for success is already there for them, they just need the right administration to pass it.Sin strengthen by law.Innocence will become obsolete.They will no longer need innocence, because being guilty wouldn't exist.

    Woe unto them who have children in these days (Matthew 24:19)

    Loving our neighbours (homosexuals included) as ourselves is not the issue at hand as you very well know. We all know we should. Your going off on a tangent about loving them because you haven't got the scripture to back your pro-homosexual beliefs up.

    The beliefs you hold on this subject are contrary to the word of God.

    Becasue I have lived is a very gay neighborhood for 15 years, the neighbor passages
    impact my thoughts differently from you. They show me that you are distracted from what is important.

    We see on the news today, little children wanting sex changes. This homosexual debate in society is now over, homosexuals have won the day and now there is no end in sight on this slippery slope. As you have correctly said, it has lead to all kinds of sexual immorality being made acceptable. A race to the bottom "if it makes you happy what can be wrong with it?" is the mind-set of most in our society today.

    Polygamy and incest is also on the cards.

    The moral fabric of society is truly broken. These are the last days where right will be wrong, and wrong will be right.

    God bless.

    Tangent? Impossible. You're just not reading.

    I used to think this way for 20 years. Being in gay neighborhood
    I discovered something stunning....there is no "slippery slope."
    In reality, the police squad cars and ambulances stop in our neighborhood
    and not at the homes of the gay couples.
    There are big issues out there impacting society and sexual orientation is
    not one of them resulting in death or crimes against humanity.
    That particular slippery slope is a myth. Drugs and alcohol are the slippery slopes.
    Lack of job opportunity is a slippery slope for parents of poor kids.

    homosexuality is not even in there.

    The word is not even in there. And that passage is referring to symptoms of sin.
    People who have done all those things are forgiven if they ask God to forgive their sins.
    So people with all those symptoms will still be in heaven if they have faith.

    What is the solution?

    Galatians 5:14 The entire Law is fulfilled in a single decree:"Love your neighbor as yourself."

    I'm not makin this stuff up.

    And you KNOW this, how? By using logic about something you don't have experience with. But regardless of hormones in the mothers womb, born that way, nurturing or environment sexual attraction seems to be set around age 3. Which would be before the individual has a choice in the matter...

    Strawman argument. I understand what you're trying to say, but it's still a strawman. It's true that animals do engage in behavior like cannibalism that we are above. But what I'm saying is that some people say that homosexuality is a "willing sin against God that is unnatural" (when again, only acts were condemned in the Bible, never attraction), and while that may be the case if it didn't occur in nature, but it does. Therefore, homosexuality is "natural" by the basic definition. Just as carnivores eating other animals.

    What does it mean though to be "created in God's image?" It can't be physically because before Jesus, God had no human incarnate form. It can't be empathy because animals have that. It can't be reason because animals have that? Intellect? Animals have it. So what exactly makes us more "created in God's image"?

    And yet many do not show the love of Christ—ironically most of such "non-Christ behavior" has been from Christians in my experience. To say nothing of the Vatican and such. Hypocritical, if you ask me.

    You could then say the same about heterosexual people who develop crushes on anyone after they learn what sexuality is. If you go with the "temptations are there" argument than shouldn't anyone be prevented from being around anyone who havey have a crush on because "temptations" might be there?


    It's an analogy that needs to be abandoned because it's a flawed one.

    Again, homosexual ACTS. Not ATTRACTION.

    Assuming you want them to preach to you, then that is allowed.
    Otherwise, it is forbidden.

    You may not do to others
    what you would not want
    them to do to you.

    And again, refers to acts not orientation.

    Agreed. I knew what my sexual orientation was at age 5, long before I knew what sexual orientation or sex even WAS (I had a lot of fictional crushes as a kid. Also I'm straight, for the record).
