    @AphroditeGoneAwry did you make a thread on here about if God told you your soulmate/life's partner were to be a particular woman, that would be fine, it's about loving, not the sex for you? Or something simiar to that... obviously I don't remember 100%... have your philosophies changed since then?
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Ah, I inquired about this fairly recently but never really got sufficient response. Seems like quite the leap, but I guess that's how faith works.. ?

    Yeah in my experience it definitely evolves based on knowledge/experience and where you are in life...

    Just out of curiosity -- what about people of other religions, e.g. Buddhism, Hinduism, etc.? Do you think that these are different manifestations of God?

    Can you substantiate any part of this claim, or is it simply a personal belief?

    So why is homosexuality any different?
    Because alcoholism and obesity lead to obvious and incontrovertible harm, both to those directly affected, and indirectly to their friends, family, and associates. The only harm resulting from homosexuality is that promulgated against gays, through bigotry.

    Good, because that's what some of us are doing. You seem, however, not to recognize what we are talkling about as God. If your OP meant to encourage only religious discussion aligned with your own personal views, you should have stated so. Then those of us desiring respectful and open-minded consideration of diverse viewpoints would know to move on.

    THAT IS SO HILARIOUS.

    YOU NEED TO START A LOLCATS BIBLE THREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    [or just keep posting them here. ]






    Oh, man. I forgot what else I was going to say.

    Oh, yeah. Saying that about my soulmate possibly being a woman was about two things. Mostly, it was because I thought for a long time that my Divine partner might have been on here, and that he considered himself a woman....And also that, since I used to identify as "bi", I kept my partner options open, so to speak.

    Now I know that God does not intend to have my Divine partner be a woman. Perhaps a gender-confused male, but not a woman.

    I learn a lot more about God and His Word and Divine Plan as life goes by, because I am trying to get closer to Him, and know Him more. You can too, if you want to.

    I have looked into those religions and personally not found them to be anywhere near Judeo-Christianity for spiritual insight and having a divinely inspired holy book. Do Buddhists even believe in God? I haven't seen that they do. And I think Hindus are more polytheists? Buddhism, the Buddha, and Muhammad, just seems to copy Christianity, and try to claim it as something original, with Buddhism being more humanist, not even attributing creation to God. But as I said, I am not an expert at those relgions at all!

    People have a right to believe what they like! This thread is about the Hebrew God in the Bible. The God of Adam and the patriarchs. The Father of Jesus.

Does a chicken decide to be gay because of daddy issues? God made animals too, right?

    2. If there is one divine partner for everyone, why will every Christian church remarry a widow/widower?

    It is the nature of your flesh to be able to practice homosexuality, to desire it, whether it is for love or for mere sex. If animals practice homosexuality occasionally, then that is just more proof that it is of the flesh.

    The whole point is that to do God's will, you must rise above what the flesh drives you to do, and the desires of your heart. Because He knows what is best for you. And He has said in Genesis 2, the very beginning of the story, that he made a woman out of man, and that a man should leave his family and cling to his wife.

    If someone dies, then God has the ability to provide for them again. Some might have a succession of Divine partners. And some might have none, only God. God was able to provide Job with more than he had before after everything he had was annihilated by the devil. God CAN do anything.
