Gay dating bible
Christians have difficult decisions to make in friendships because we are called to do two things: 1) love people and 2) stand for what the Bible says.What do we do about people who don't live in the way God wants us to?In general, Christians have done a poor job of talking about sexuality, especially when it comes to same-sex orientation.For many, it's a taboo topic to avoid at all costs.I could go on, and if you’re a part of almost any kind of Christian community, you probably can too.Even though we’re following Jesus, and reading the same Bible, and aiming for the covenant of marriage, our dating advice can be surprisingly wide and diverse.Many Christians are looking for ways to uphold God's truth with love and grace.
Sexual intimacy between a man and a woman is the normal method of male/female bonding (emotionally and physically) because it corresponds to the design of our bodies and because it is the normal means by which offspring are created. Same sex marriages must satisfy criteria other than emotion. A marriage is a social unit that is interwoven with dozens of other lives. Less than 5% of gays have ever had a relationship that lasted 3 years or more. Passion cannot sustain an inherently unstable social unit.
Even though I disagreed with his lifestyle choice, I wanted to communicate that we could still hang out together.
When Bill asked me about my beliefs on homosexuality, I shared that I believe the Bible is God's Word and has 17 references to sexual sin.
You will not truly love anyone else if you do not love God first and most.
And no one will truly love you if they do not love God more than they love you.
