When God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah, there was no law and no new testament. Appears God needs neither in order to hold man accountable.

There are a lot of things in the bible which, themselves, modify other things and how they are to be taken. If you knew that, you wouldn't have even bothered including anything from, say, Leviticus.

If you don't understand the source material, you might want to hold off on mocking it.

Isn't the passage regarding homosexuality FROM Leviticus?

If the OP shouldn't have bothered mentioning Leviticus, doesn't that make the forbidding of homosexuality moot as well?
#529 to #519 - endsdawn (11/25/2013) [-]
The new covenant, as a lot of us call it, did away with a lot of the old rules. Essentially nullifying a lot of the old testament, of which leviticus is part. To put it basically, the old testament was written specifically for those in the past. The new testament was written for Christians today.

People like to pick and choose random verses and say "See how evil Christians are!" But what they've picked is usually taken completely out of context and they have no idea what other passages may have bearing on the one they've chosen, sometimes to a large extent.

So much hate against Christianity these days is perpetrated by those who don't understand it. They pick out the seemingly worst verses from out bible, but are ignorant of the bit picture. They point out the worst of us (Wesboro Baptist Church anyone?) as if they are shining examples of our faith, when the truth is that we don't like them any more than you do.

The biggest message in Christianity is one of love and forgiveness, and it's really sad how many people get that wrong these days.

You're just mad because you are gay and can't marry your boyfriend.
User avatar #522 to #511 - kanadetenshi (11/25/2013) [-]
Sounds like a good reason to get mad though.

But contrary to all the other "crimes" mentioned in the post, ****** (interpreted as homosexuality) is the only "crime" for witch God destroyed entire communities (in the cases of Sodoma and Gomorrah). Thus "homosexuality" has long been considered a grave threat to entire cities and nations, whereas the other "crimes" only affect the individuals comitting them.

This is not just about double standards but also historical tradition.

But besides that, people ought to not give a flying **** about how other people lead their lives.

everything from Leviticus on this pic no longer applies to those who believe Jesus was crucified and risen. and there are plenty of people fighting against premarital sex and divorce, but you never hear of them because it doesn't agree with the medias agenda.
User avatar #506 - jbgotswag (11/25/2013) [-]
do you mean that everyone on earth is protesting premarital sex?

gay marriage is the only topic we have control over. leave the govt to fail without our help

Look, I'm getting tired of seeing all the christian bashing. And I honestly don't give a damn how many red thumbs I get, because I'm not selling out for anyone. I am a christian, not the best ever mind you, however I have NO qualms with gay people. But sitting here and saying I've got ****** beliefs because of what some douchebags do is unfair and makes you out to be a hypocrite for condemning others too. Not all christians feel this way, so don't single every christian out and bash us. You believe whatever you want, but stop making yourself look foolish and ignorant in the process. Just because I choose to have a religion different than yours gives you no right to assume anything or judge me. So don't become the ONE thing you seem to hate. Judgmental.

dear lord, the baby jesus, I hate religion.
#494 - theonewhoisnigz (11/25/2013) [-]
Romans 1:26 is against homosexuality. It is called a vile passion; being against nature and shameful. But what christians need to realize is that nowhere in the bible does it say to judge or hold contempt against a fellow brother or sister, just to love them. Which is the opposite of what I see today. Christians need to befriend gay people, they should be treated no different than one would treat their other best friends.

TL;DR Real christians just love and befriend, not constantly judge.

As a devoted Christian, even I don't have a single clue as to why this is...

Wow this is not biased in anyway whatsoever and was clearly created by an intellectual person.

Yes, because there is no such thing as an intelligent Christian or a stupid atheist.

what about the thousands of people protesting the shaving of beards this month?
User avatar #487 to #484 - huntergriff ONLINE (11/25/2013) [-]
that's different, that's for cancer awareness.
User avatar #488 to #487 - kanpai (11/25/2013) [-]
well, that's if you're talking about movember, where you just grow your moustache.

no shave november was around long before that
User avatar #476 - jamesisawesome (11/25/2013) [-]
They aren't really protesting because of the bible, that's just an excuse. They're protesting because the idea of two men having butt sex kills their boners/dries up their pussies and they don't want people doing it. At least, that's how it was originally. For a few generations, these people have been raising their kids to hate gays and using religion as a reason, so some of their kids believe it themselves now.

So went over this last time some libtard blindly got butt-mad over this post.

That is not a protest over gay marriage, it was political protest in a middle eastern country.
User avatar #473 - paintedxxxgoddess (11/25/2013) [-]
I've been Christian for over 15 years and fully support gay marriage. I in no way think it is wrong. Besides, who am I to tell some one what they are doing is wrong? That is called judging and I refuse to judge some one or I'll be judged the same way. That's in the bible too.
#515 to #473 - meatpulp (11/25/2013) [-]
Exactly! it's sad how people mask their flaws with our religion.
#477 to #473 - booped (11/25/2013) [-]
An example of a good religious believer! Thank you good Sir / Ma'am!

about the one where it says you can't eat pig.

i belive the actual text was something like "tho shalt not eat of an animal which has split hoves and does not ruminate"

you got the place yourself in the situation that was going on when the bible was written, somwhat 2000 years ago, pigs eat just about anything , the ones kept by farmers were give trash or other stuff, and the wild ones lived of all kinds of plants that might be toxic.

because a pig does not ruminate it keeps most of these toxins in his system as opposed to a cow , that has several stomachs and chews his food several times breaking down these toxins.

in those times, if you were to eat pig meat, it was likely you might get sick, and with the medical care of that time, even the slightest illness could mean death.

same with the rule that you can't eat shellfish, back then they had no cooling , and if you ever had bad shellfish you know that those can make you really sick, and in those times it would mean you would die of a violent diareah death.

some of those rules might sound stupid, but they sort of make sense if you look at why they would make them

You are the first one I have seen on FJ making that argument. I have tried that same argument on muslims when they talk about how ****** pork is. No effect on them though.
