If God hates gay people, why did he create them? Whether they are born with it or it's a mental illness, he could have just eliminated it altogether because it's completely pointless

God all gives us challenges to overcome in life some are harder than others. He makes gay for them to overcome their sexuality and renounce sin to be true to God and the faith. Thus Heaven is upon them. However if they ignore the faith of God and adhere to their gayness they are ignoring the plan in which God has laid before them. Thus ignoring god, heaven and perusing a life of sin. Thus if one is Gay for the same sex then one is doomed to hell as those of Sodom and Gomorrah were doomed.
God has set thy examples before and sent to hell those who sin and ignor God. God is just in this reason and has signaled to the world what happens to those who kill, steal, and commit sodomy. If you are ignorant enough and foolish enough to denounce God's reason then you are fool who shall burn in hell.

He doesn't. He designed it. He designed one man and one woman to be merged into one flesh through sexual intercourse.

Sex is too powerful to be handled outside of a marriage, outside of a committed for life blood contract. Doing it wrong causes all kinds of heartache and death.

Doing it right provides all sorts of joys and wonders.

So people take what God gives us, pleasurable sexual relations between a husband and wife, take it out of that context, and bastardize it to the point where people are literally having sex with strangers and wondering why their lives are so empty and meaningless.

Is it sodomy in particular that Christianity has a problem with or is it the malexmale relationship? I.e. are all people who participate in anal sex sinning? And would a gay relationship minus any pentrative intercourse be okay?

can you explain why multiple stories in the bible, most notably thd jesus story, is exactly like another myth 600 years before his birth?

Is making it look like the entire doctrine was just copied from someone else just a test from God? Did he also make our logical faculties cringe at the thought of the contradictions and hypocrisy and obvious stupid bullshit present in the bible that was inevitably proven bullshit by science, all as a test? I can't believe God only wants retards in heaven, seems odd company. Maybe he doesn't want anyone around questioning him.

same goes for women where I make this man just for women and they decide "nah ima just have this girl lick my vag instead" Id be pissed.
Like if im god and i went through all this trouble just to make perfect counterparts for one another sex then that sex just decides to ignor me... id be like not uh, you going straight to hell dont pass go dont collect $200

Or the time he ordered the jews to slaughter everyone in the Holy land, or the time he got pissed that humans made a tower too tall and he cursed them all again, I could go on.

You think those curses were mean?

Let's say you're right. God was mean and should not have cursed Adam and Eve. Or the serpent, or the earth. Just exile, and be done with it.

So now here you are, 6000 years later. You are born in paradise, all your needs are met, everyone is living happily in abundance and but for a few wars now and then, life is pain free and easy.

And then you die and go to hell for an eternity because it never occurred to you that anything was wrong. That anything was broken. That anything was, in fact, cursed.

Mean? No, it's not mean to give your fingers heat sensors to keep your hands out of the fire. It's not mean to give you taste buds to know not to eat your own shit.

Nor was God "petulant" or mean when he went about exiling them, or protecting Cain who had just murdered his first prophet, Abel, etc.

Everyone on earth but for Noah's family had contaminated DNA. They were no longer human. You weep for hybrid monsters who would rend your soul in hell if they could.

Sodom and Gomorrah were God's visible declaration of what he would not put up with. And yet, people still act worse than the people in Sodom and Gomorrah. That should lead you to "people are broken", not "God is mean".

The Egyptians had enslaved the Hebrews. Now you're rooting for slave owners? On top of that enslavement, they had murdered all of their male babies. You're rooting for infanticide perpetrators?

Are you not evil?

Moses never slaughtered half the Jews; that would be millions. The rebellion of Korah met their end by the earth opening up and swallowing them.

The people in the holy land had 400 years to repent, and did nothing but become more wicked. More wicked than anything you've ever seen or heard of. Killing them was a mercy.

Again, rebellion against God in the Tower of Babel: God says spread out and occupy the earth, and men say let's all cluster together and invade heaven.

You root for the rebels. The satanic rebels.

So here's the thing sodomy for 2000 years has been debated over as to how it should be defined so to answer that first part, it is open ended.

I think youre being too broad however. It isnt that Christianity as a whole has a problem with it. Though hardcore Christians will argue that it is a sin no matter what and that any male on male as well as female and female sexual relationship is a sin. The act of same sex relationships is a taboo in many cultures, but then again it is also embraced in some as well. Western society as well as the middle east, south america, and Africa all have ties to the bible which happens to be where Sodomy and the overall act of same sex relationship is determined sinful or taboo. Christianity had a major role in politics up until just recently when the separation of Church and State started to occur across the globe. As for Governments in middle east where Religion still has a major role, the taboo of course is still alive to an extent.

I think that people actually just worship themselves, but they don't want to seem arrogant so they make up a huge version of themselves in space and say they worship that thing.

Claim: Mithras was born of a virgin on December 25th, in a cave, attended by shepherds

Truth: Mithras was actually born out of solid rock, leaving a hole in the side of a mountain (presumably described as a “cave”). He was not born of a virgin (unless you consider the rock mountain to have been a virgin). Shepherds are part of Mithraism, witnessing his birth and helping Mithras emerge from the rock, but interestingly, the shepherds exist in the birth chronology at a time when humans are not supposed to have been yet born. This, coupled with the fact the earliest version of this part of the Mithraic mythology emerges one hundred years after the appearance of the New Testament, infers it is far more likely this portion of Mithraism was borrowed from Christianity rather than the other way around.

Claim: Mithras had 12 companions or disciples

Truth: There is no evidence for any of this in the traditions of Iran or Rome. It is possible the idea Mithras had 12 disciples is simply derived from murals in which Mithras is surrounded by twelve signs and personages of the Zodiac (two of whom are the moon and the sun). Even this imagery is post Christian, and, therefore, did not contribute to the imagery of Christianity (although it could certainly have borrowed from Christianity).

Claim: Mithras sacrificed himself for world peace
Truth: There is little or no evidence this is true, although there is a story about Mithras slaying a threatening bull in a heroic deed. But that’s about as close as it gets.

Claim: Mithras was buried in a tomb and after three days rose again, and Mithras was celebrated each year at the time of His resurrection (later to become Easter)
Truth: There is nothing in the Mithraic tradition indicating he ever even died, let alone resurrected. Tertullian did write about Mithraic believers re-enacting resurrection scenes, but he wrote about this occurring well after New Testament times. Christianity could not, therefore, have borrowed from Mithraic traditions, but the opposite could certainly be true.

Claim: Mithras was called “the Good Shepherd”, and was identified with both the Lamb and the Lion
Truth: There is no evidence that Mithras was ever called “the Good Shepherd” or identified with a lamb, but since Mithras was a sun-god, there was an association with Leo (the House of the Sun in Babylonian astrology), so one might say he was associated with a Lion. But once again, all of this evidence is actually post New Testament; Mithraic believers may once again have borrowed this attribute from Christianity.

Claim: Mithras was considered to be the “Way, the Truth and the Light,” and the “Logos,” “Redeemer,” “Savior” and “Messiah.”
Truth: Based on the researched and known historic record of the Mithraic traditions, none of these terms has ever been applied to Mithras with the exception of “mediator”. But this term was used in a very different from how Christians used the term. Mithras was not the mediator between God and man but the mediator between the good and evil gods of Zoroaster.
>>
>>2538455
Claim: Mithraic believers celebrated Sunday as Mithras’ sacred day (also known as the “Lord’s Day,”)
Truth: This tradition of celebrating Sunday is only true of Mithraic believers in Rome and it is a tradition that dates to post Christian times. Once again, it is more likely to have been borrowed from Christianity than the other way around.

Claim: Mithraic believers celebrated a Eucharist or “Lord’s Supper”
Truth: Followers of Mithras did not celebrate a Eucharist, but they did celebrate a fellowship meal regularly, just as did many other groups in the Roman world.

"Allegations of an early Christian dependence on Mithraism have been rejected on many grounds. Mithraism had no concept of the death and resurrection of its god and no place for any concept of rebirth - at least during its early stages.... During the early stages of the cult, the notion of rebirth would have been foreign to its basic outlook.... Moreover, Mithraism was basically a military cult. Therefore, one must be skeptical about suggestions that it appealed to nonmilitary people like the early Christians."

Christianity =/= American meme christianity

And the only thing that is 'redneck' like in the bible is the condemnation of sodomy, which has been explained multiple times in this thread. And even if it is a seemingly illogical conclusion, it doesn't negate the thousands of years of Christian theology because the gays really aren't that important as a subgroup of humanity.

404 How did the sin of Adam become the sin of all his descendants? The whole human race is in Adam "as one body of one man".293 By this "unity of the human race" all men are implicated in Adam's sin, as all are implicated in Christ's justice. Still, the transmission of original sin is a mystery that we cannot fully understand. But we do know by Revelation that Adam had received original holiness and justice not for himself alone, but for all human nature. By yielding to the tempter, Adam and Eve committed a personal sin, but this sin affected the human nature that they would then transmit in a fallen state.294 It is a sin which will be transmitted by propagation to all mankind, that is, by the transmission of a human nature deprived of original holiness and justice. And that is why original sin is called "sin" only in an analogical sense: it is a sin "contracted" and not "committed" - a state and not an act.

405 Although it is proper to each individual,295 original sin does not have the character of a personal fault in any of Adam's descendants. It is a deprivation of original holiness and justice, but human nature has not been totally corrupted: it is wounded in the natural powers proper to it, subject to ignorance, suffering and the dominion of death, and inclined to sin - an inclination to evil that is called concupiscence". Baptism, by imparting the life of Christ's grace, erases original sin and turns a man back towards God, but the consequences for nature, weakened and inclined to evil, persist in man and summon him to spiritual battle.

do you realize that you're a walking confirmation bias?

Do you at least understand that believing everything a book says and going through whatever loops possible to justify a book is the opposite of the scientific method? The opposite of logic and reason? Like, I'm genuinely concerned that after reading the definition of confirmation bias (that I'm sure you just googled if the rest of this thread is any indication) you still dont see how that fits your mindset perfectly. Perhaps you do realize it but you just push it down deep into the recesses of your mind.

Yeah that's great, but it relates to culture. I want a theological perspective on the hypothetical situations i put forth.

I'm asking specifically what is it that Christianity (lets say Catholic for the sake of argument) supposedly considers, according to god's law, a sin? We know that most of God's laws relate to specific behaviors - don't kill, don't steal, ect,ect. So what behavior in relation to homosexuality is it the Christianity want's to prohibit, and for what purpose? Is it the act of sodomy specifically? And then ergo, any sodomite, which happens to include homosexuals? Or is there something in the bible or in God's law that specifically talks about same sex relationships in a broader sense?

christianity was important in retaining structure after the roman empire fell, and so you can make the argument you made from that. However, when science really took off and starting becoming more popular, it was christianity that held it back.

So it is responsible for both preserving and holding back science.

The idea that reason is accurate came from Christianity, and before that paganism, you know. Under your ideology there is no non-contradictory stance that allows the defense of the concept. Hence, the very concept cannibalizes itself.

Wrong, atheism is a sickness. It is a lack of something intrinsic, not a normative state that all others deviate from.

The frogs tried to replace God with an idol, and look how it turned out for them. Godlessness results in mass rape and murder, propaganda, and so on.

>>
>>2538804
I know that, I never said it wasn't. 'New Atheism' is a literal descriptive term for a group of Atheist, Secular Intellectuals from the early 21st century like Sam Harris, Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens etc.

I'm saying that a lot of the arguments in this thread are the same ones that were thrown about a decade ago when it gained popularity on the internet and it's tiresome to see them still being used.

>it's what you should normally believe without the interference of religion

Every human civilisation has had a concept of the metaphysical, whether it's true or not. 'Religion' as a monolith that forces views on people is a misconception; mans innate curiosity creates Religions and Religions become corrupted by man.

To say that man does not have an innate desire to know of the metaphysical or afterlife and to create a narrative about it is pretty stupid.
>>
>>2538796
If I gave you a false dichotomy, would you instantly agree unquestioningly with your entire soul, or would you bitterly and resentfully disagree like a fool? Choose only one.

are you the "laaawwwjjjiiikkk" guy?
>>
>>2538830
to believe that "man's innate desire to know of the metaphysical" and his inevitable "creat[ion] of a narrative" is the right answer is folly. To believe that the literal first attempt at understanding the universe is the right one is folly. To foolishly use confirmation bias to try to make a foolish first attempt make sense is the height of folly

because we have other tests as well.
some are born rich, retarded, gay, poor, disabled. we all are born unlike someone else which in terms makes us unique. However whether that unique trait is a positive or negative in life is the test.
>>
>>2538699
I've never read the testaments old or new so I can not tell you a specific citation from the bibles where it is deemed sinful. What I do know is of doctrines that have been adopted as well as mythical stories of sodomy.
Sodomy in general is a sin and as same sex relations pertains to sodomy, it is in sodomy that same sex relationships are a sin as well. This is the basis for the argument at least. As a Christian, I have studied the theologies of both Catholic and Protestant, or rather practiced both. In Catholicism simple acts of sins can be forgiven through pray and admitting to the sin. In Protestant it is similar however it is in sin that you should punish yourself as well as pray for forgiveness.

In Christianity the idea is to walk as Jesus had walked and by like Jesus with the idea that by doing so you are to spread the faith onto others so that they may achieve the same peace that Jesus found as he ascended to heaven. There is speculation over this of course and we know the idea was soon lost in time. Only some today understand that concept which is to be peaceful and to attain peace in heaven you must be at peace on earth. Therefore no sinning.
>is there something in the bible or in God's law that specifically talks about same sex relationships in a broader sense?
Again I don't know of any specific section in the bible however I know of the Churches power to govern over states in the Middle ages and if one commit ed sins then there were jail sentences as well as fines to pay for sinning.
>>
>>2538699
The Catholic Church describes any sexual act that, in principle, cannot result in procreation as sinful misuse of sexual facilities.
>>
God didn't create faggots. They created themselves. Predestination is a Calvinist lie.

God doesn't hate anyone. God is all love, or more accurately all Love is God, as God is the source of all love.
So God doesn't hate gays.

As for why there are gay people even though being gay is a sin, you could easily ask the same as why are their horny people if sex outside of marriage is a sin? Theologically they are the same sin after all: sodomy is sex outside of marriage without the purpose of procreation, the only major difference is gays can't go through marriage.
The answer is that any such sin is reducing oneself to base pleasures, desires of this world, of the flesh. People aren't "gay people," simply people who are sexually attracted to those os the same sex. One would hope this is not the sole thing which defines them. Sex is an act solely reserved for married couples, an expression of love from which new life springs. To use it in any other way perverts this act. By reducing oneself to such base pleasures and succumbing to the desires of the flesh, one courts Satan in perverting the acts intended nature, turning away from God, and to turn away from God is the very "definition" of sin.
Almost all people are born with struggles, as we have become imperfect through our own acts in original sin. Some are gay, some are gluttons, some are pridful, some are bloodthirsty killers. Gays aren't unique in this regard. If one gives up these human desires and serve God, we are rewarded with eternal life. If not, we are sent to hell, an act of love by God, as He freely denies Himself and His desire to be with us, and lets us go where we may acts as we desire, yet He forewarns us of agony as the soul knows only anguish without God.

God loves us all, but we must conform to Him, not Him to us, for if He was to change He would not be God. (Since one of God's traits is Immutability)
>>
Bisexuality is the normal, fallen state of man. God decreed that a man should love only one woman, and put away all other erotic relationships. Why did God do this? Who fucking knows, why does God do anything?

Because the consequences of Adam's sin, not Eve's deception, was that you were born spiritually dead. The human race joined satan's doomed rebellion against God.

It's simple. Adam had the Holy Spirit in him; he sinned; the Holy Spirit left him and he died.

He then could only reproduce human beings in his own spiritually dead image, not in the image of God.

No, not at all. God does not tempt you. And God does not allow you to be overwhelmed by temptation, but always provides an escape hatch.

There are three sources of sin: your flesh, the world system, and the devil.

There are three types of sin: lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes, and pride of life.

Each source and each type has to be handled differently.
