where are the scriptures that jesus rejected gays?
Do we need scriptures that reject the drinking of urine, the eating of dog doo doo for us not to?
when one says that jesus rejects homosexuals there must be a scriptural basis for it.
These are great questions and I believe this topic is so important especially because of the history of America with respect to how they changed their government organization back in 1776.
Jesus Christ would be the head of the church and he was 'a man', an Adam man, and therefore of the priesthood system and the KINGDOM of God and up under the laws of the Old Testament and the New Testament, and therefore Homosexuality would definitely be a sin in every aspect. Jesus was defined as 'a king'. The Bible gives several accounts of kings who did have to deal with homosexuals in their systems and makes it plain that it was not suppose to be an acceptable behavior and some kings were noted for dealing with these issues. So I guess the answer would be that it really is not up to anyone's belief even if they are of the Christian faith but it is based upon the head of the faith and that is Jesus, and he makes it plain that it is a sin.
And I think that the old Testament Book of Leviticus details that this is considered an abomination.
I guess if the church administration knows that someone is an homosexual, they are not suppose to welcome them into the body if they make it plain they are homosexuals and justify it as being right, but the church is suppose to welcome them if they want to hear about the truth and perhaps give them time to understand the Christain basis of it. In other words, who has not sinned? You wouldn't reject others who sinned from coming to church but still, it should be based on the nature of the sin too. In other words, if a person has murdered someone deliberately and it was proven, the church administrators are not suppose to allow that person to come to church and be amongst the general population without dealing with the situation. But if the person, went served a sentence and was 'corrected' and admitted that he sinned and wanted to go to church, then he should be allowed to go to church. If a person murdered someone deliberately and were proven to be wrong, but boasted about it and still felt that they should go to church, be apart of church, then no, he should not be allowed to go to church and sit amongst the general population.
Technically, the definition of 'a Christian' is based on being 'a follower of Jesus Christ' and so yes, there is such a thing as an homosexual person believing in Jesus. But it is a sin, and if he doesn't choose or strive to make a change, then he wouldn't actually be 'a Christian'. Again, it is a sin because Christianity is based on the head of the Church which is Jesus as a king and of the priesthood of God, and a descendant of Adam, and the role of 'a man of God' is clearly explained in the Bible.
absolutely.It doesn't bother me though, but I would not encourage my children to be around them.
Parents must set guidelines, that is apart of being a parent. But I guess you can never be sure about the future, but if a person is a follower of Jesus then it would be a feeling of 'something that might have went wrong' but not on the side of the child, especially if standards were set within the family. I would begin to pursue to see if my child had been attacked or something. Children don't just go against their parents for no usual reason.
