no need to be condescending..
there's a bunch of history behind the Bible that not many take the time to study. It's not picking or choosing, Leviticus was written exclusively to the high priests of Levi because they were the few who could enter the Holy of Holies. They were different. We're not meant to apply it so extremely to our lives as some of you use as arguments, because that need for total purity vanished with Jesus's death. People are going to sin. It's okay, it's covered. Back then it wasn't..cue the sacrifices and altars as compensation.
I didn't mean to sound condescending, I was genuinely frustrated.
But in this case we're talking pretty much solely about 1Corinthians 6? And I guess Romans 1.
So just to clarify, what's your religio-political stance here? No need to get into the politics if you're not comfortable, but for the sake of clarity I just wanna know where you stand on the severity and consequences of homosexuality.
I get that one popular school of thought is that New Testament followers can cite Jesus's sacrifice and sort of let sins like homosexuality go... but what's the policy on someone who commits a sin like that freely and without any intent to reform? I ask this totally genuinely, because I'm realizing that I don't really know the answer.
