Gay Marriage: Is God pro or con?
Debate Rounds (3)
I believe that God loves all his children whether they are gay, straight, black, white, etc. Therefore, I think he wants all of us to be happy and in love regaurdless to gender. If it is not in the ten commandments I don't believe that any of us should say whether its a sin or not.
Since it has bee made clear we are talking about the Christian God the case will be then based almost entirely on His word which is the bible. See john 1:1 the objective for my case will be then to show how the bible talks about same sex relations or even same sex marriage is sinful. Something sinful is anything that does not meet the the standard of God I would imagine romans 3:23 would illustrate that point.
I would like to thank the pro for the oppurtunity to debate this and hope both of us come out with a better biblical understanding of God.
Now, to me this debate is to help me understand why people would believe that God does not love, understand, except etc his gay children.
On that note I will argue that biblical references can be interpreted in anyway. Thats why we have so many different denominations. So those verses to you may mean one thing but to me another.
Also, the bible also states that in the household the man comes first and woman second, but ask your wife and she'll tell you differently (lol) by this statement I am implying that times have changed and we live much differently now. I do not believe that God looks down upon us because of this.
How we know Homesexuality is sinful according to the bible
Leviticus 18:2, Romans 1:26-27 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also men, leaving the natrual use of the woman, burned their lust toward one another"
The bible makes it clear homesexuality is sinful but why? Is probably the immediete question.
Heres why, Genesis 2:24 is the first mention of marriage in the bible, we will also notice that in 1 Corinthians 7:2-16, and Ephesians 5:23-33 instructions about marriage deal with men and woman. So we have to conclude with the bible that this is the way marriage biblically is meant to be.
Now I refuse to believe God hates gay's, I believe from scripture He loves them the same way He loves me or anyone else. See Romans 3:23, and John 3:16.
