  • I personally see all of them as 'sins'. All of the above are obstacles placed in front of you. temptations as much any other. You either give in and sin or you fight it and over rule the temptation. I believe that they are all equally 'wrong' actions but the fact that a person has fallen into temptation doesn't make them a bad person. Love the person hate the sin.

  • I used to not believe in the whole gay thing. BUT, if two people are in love and happen to be of the same sex, what harm is it to ME as an individual? Aren't we as Christians supposed to teach love and understanding? I do not care if Tom and Jerry are together or married.

    Don't care for the having an affair while married OR staying together for the sake of the kids!

    Get divorced THEN mess about.

    Not sure about the before marriage as I had sex before I married.

  • Both are sins of equal measure. Only the world or individual societies, not the Bible or our Creator, has made a special case of homosexuality from time to time, or decided to find pre or extra-martial sex acceptable or fashionable. Our Creator has been explicit, so nobody can say they didn't realise:
    "What! Do YOU not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men, nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit God’s kingdom." 1 Corinthians 6:9,10 [also Romans 1:24-32]

  • Sex outside of marriage is sin no matter whom one takes as a partner. All sin pays the same rate. (Romans 6:23)

  • Aren't we as Christians supposed to teach love and understanding?
    Love (God) teaches that we are to warn others of the judgment to come. We are not to conform to the world's standard of morality, but rather, embrace God's definition.

  • What the Word of God says about sin is what I believe... all sin is sin period!
    There are 7 sins He does mention that He absolutely abhors
    Prov 6 There are six things which the LORD hates,
    Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:
    17Haughty eyes, a lying tongue,
    And hands that shed innocent blood,
    18A heart that devises wicked plans,
    Feet that run rapidly to evil,
    19A false witness who utters lies,
    And one who spreads strife among brothers.
    This isnt to say homosexuality is ok, its not ok in the eyes of God... ONLY in the eyes of those living apart from God.

  • last one was from NASB the following is from THE NESSAGE
    Seven Things God HatesProvs6: 16-19 Here are six things God hates,and one more that he loathes with a passion:eyes that are arrogant, a tongue that lies, hands that murder the innocent,a heart that hatches evil plots feet that race down a wicked track, a mouth that lies under oath, a troublemaker in the family.
    1 corinthian 6 says this NASB 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (New American Standard Bible)
    9Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor [a]effeminate, nor homosexuals 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. next post will be in The Message ...

  • 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 (The Message)

    9-11Don't you realize that this is not the way to live? Unjust people who don't care about God will not be joining in his kingdom. Those who use and abuse each other, use and abuse sex, use and abuse the earth and everything in it, don't qualify as citizens in God's kingdom. A number of you know from experience what I'm talking about, for not so long ago you were on that list. Since then, you've been cleaned up and given a fresh start by Jesus, our Master, our Messiah, and by our God present in us, the Spirit.
