is it wrong to believe in most things in the bible but not all?? i go to church with my girlfriend and i love her very much. i know the bible speaks against it but i just cant accept that. people wrote the bible so how do we know they didnt throw stuff in that they wanted to add??? and the fact that a passage can be translated and interpreted in so many different ways makes most things simply unreliable.... any thoughts??Answer Question

I have no faith in the bible. But I wanted to just tell you that You should hold your head up and hold your love close no matter what someone else says. IF you love her and she loves you, nothing should come between you. I feel it's such a shame that anyone would have to go through questioning their own faith and their own love. Don't let anyone tell you it's wrong to love. I am sure you will get many nasty comments - Ignore them! Not all Christians believe every word of the bible. It's a book to help guide you, it's not word for word anything. It was written by MEN, not any God. And not everything there is to be taken as if it is. Is it okay to stone a person? No, but it's biblical. If you have faith in your God and your religion then you should have the faith that they led you to the right person, woman or no...

Maybe you want to look into attending a church that is "Open and Affirming". Go to Open and Affirming in the UCC

There are Christian denominations that are open to homosexuals - Methodist and Episcopalian, UCC, Unity come to mind. UU churches are also very open to anyone, regardless of sexual orientation. I love our UU congregation - it's not simply "tolerated" to be gay, they are united in support for equal rights and embrace diversity.
