I’ve been talking to this person and she keeps saying that the word for “virgin” was mistranslated from language to language. she insists that Mary was not a virgin. She says that the original bible says mary is pure, pure COULD include being a virgin, but it doesn’t necessarly. That it was translated so many times over the years, by different people, there’s bound to be many errors.
Also, I showed her some quotes where it says homosexuality is a sin in the bible and I gave her Genesis 19 to read and I gave her Romans 1 and there were more verses. And she says that the bible didn’t say homosexuality anywhere. The sin of Sodom and Gemorrah was rape and treating outsiders poorly. She says that the supposed “sin” of gay sex is that one man is allowing himself to be penetrated as a woman would. “Do not lie with a man as a woman would” is closer to the actual translation.
How can I explain these two to her?
