@ccraft: Homosexuals try to normalize the sin and claim they are equal to heterosexuals.

That sentiment is the problem. Gays are equal to straight people. And heterosexuals try to "normalize" their sins. If a person is gay. And another person is a heterosexual adulterer. Neither will enter heaven. In fact, every person who has sinned even one time is a "sinner" in God's eyes. There is no distinction. Sin is sin.

What are people's thoughts on this scripture about Adultery?

The scripture is very clear. Porn, wanting someone you're not married to is a sin. But by God's standards nearly everything is a sin. Telling your wife she's cuter than her sister(when her sister is cuter) is a sin. Taking a tax deduction you don't qualify for is a sin. Cussing someone out in your mind is a sin.

In what way is homosexual behavior equal to heterosexuals? The problem is marriage equality and inclusiveness. Marriage has always been defined between man and woman, that's the golden standard that keeps a society going.

That's the problem with society they live in their sinful desires, no matter the sin. But it seems to me you want to excuse homosexuality as being sinful, or at the very least make it equal to other sins. Which it is.

Do you think porn is cheating? A lot of people would say there isn't a problem with it.

Romans 1:21-27New International Version (NIV)

21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Was the book of Job really just a "bet" between God and Satan? Did they ruin a man's life just to win a "bet"? Did the outcome resolve anything?

Is it important that The Trinity is true? If they are all separate beings, would anything change? Let's say Jesus is NOT formed from the Father. But he was God's first creation. Would his sacrifice and teaching have any less meaning? Why is that doctrine so important?

John 14:13 And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Mark 11:24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

Truly, truly, I say to you, whatever you ask of the Father in my name, rhe will give it to you.

So when people pray for a job or relief from sickness or to turn someone's heart towards God. And it doesn't happen, does that mean that the person lacked faith? Or it wasn't God's will? How do you know the reason that you're prayer wasn't answered?

1) Satan accused Job of only fearing God and worshiping him because God has blessed him. Satan said he would curse God if his life was ruined. So Satan tested Job's faith. I just realize one of my favorite bible verses was from Job, job 1:21 And he said .... The Lord gave, and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord.” Job has more to lose than his worldly interests if he is to curse God for losing everything, he loses everlasting life in heaven.

This is just by reading Job chapter 1, it has 42 chapters that I will read and try to elaborate on.

Proverbs 9:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

2) It's important that it is true, because to Christians Jesus spoke about son of God to save us from our sins. You take away his divinity he was just a crazy person who talked to demons and claimed to be God.

3) You must try to live a righteous life and have faith in God for prayers to be answered. Typically it's a yes or no. If you prayed for job you applied for and you don't get it, then it's not what God wants for you. Same for a sickness as well all part of his mysterious plan. I met someone a few years ago when I worked with a special needs client. I was working for the son who was in his thirties, his grandmother lost her son due to a head injury while playing football. She never lost her faith. She was very known in her community, and touched a lot of people until she died. I was lucky enough to meet her before she passed away 2 years later. And unfortunately the special needs client I worked with passed away a few weeks ago. Everyone dies sooner or later, we just need to be in good standings with God before we do.

If the prayer wasn't answered then it isn't God's will. That's why a prayer journal is so important.

Matthew 5:27-28

27 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’[a] 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

What are people's thoughts on this scripture about Adultery? Christians and non believers alike, interested in your thoughts. Some say porn isn't cheating, or looking at other women.

Choosing to be gay is no more of a sin then choosing to commit fornication,

living in sin(living with someone you're not married to), adultery, cheating on your taxes, lying or being an alcoholic.

The only reason gay people make so much noise is because those other sinners were allowed rights while they were not. And people tend to look down on gay people more than they do other sinners. Adultery and fornication are so prevalent that it's not even taboo anymore.

Homosexuals try to normalize the sin and claim they are equal to heterosexuals. Like when they changed gay marriage to marriage equality. You're right that society also normalized fornication, adultery, such as co-parenting is a big thing now, or a couple has one or more persons in their life. All of this is sinful behavior. All of these have negative effects on family, children, and society as a whole. I agree it isn't taboo, because it's become normalized through media and has changed the attitude of society toward it. You are considered a bigot to say these things are bad.

As a Christian I am very weary of the things shown and said on television. It has great influence on our society. Was normally called airwaves, and the bible had said Satan is the God of this world, influencing our ideas, opinions, and views (2 Corinthians 4:4). And that Satan is the prince of the power of the Air (Ephesians 2:2). I can't help but to see a connection.

@paragonnate: Killing off the population with abortion to save Mother Earth is very reminiscent of the story of Baal in the bible, were the people sacrificed their children to appease a false God of nature.

@paragonnate: Have you read The Population Bomb, which was written in 1968 which predicted mass starvation by 1980? This fear of overpopulation is dangerous and will do more harm than good. China's one child policy, did you know they have abortions based on gender? I guess people want the US to be more like China.

Overpopulation and lack of natural selection.

Bingo.

All that other stuff means absolutely nothing without natural resources and a balanced natural ecological state to sustain ourselfs.

Yup

Just waiting for one of you people to start suggesting which group of people to start shoving into the furnace to save your God mother Earth.

@silent_bomber: To your original question, no I don't have a source for that, but I suppose I could look for one if you need one

@silent_bomber: There isn't any hardcore scientific evidence to show a person's sexual orientation is the result of being born differently. There isn't a gay gene, the gay activists shout "born this way" but it's not true, it was a political tool and it worked very well to change public opinion. They may have more attractions toward the same sex than others, but it's still a choice to live the gay lifestyle.

@silent_bomber: So I'm assuming you believe people are born straight, gay, bisexual, etc?
