[quote=ramman50076] In effect , their conscience is clear to accept the feelings they have. That those feelings , being bred into them by the creator - eliminates their culpability as a result.
Anyone care to respond to this?
What does he mean by their conscience is clear to accept the feelings ?
We can always accept our feelings. They are our feelings.
They can guide us towards right actions and wrong actions.
This is the old “If lov’n you is wrong then I don’t wann’a be right.” attitude.
I can clearly accept my feelings of sexual attraction to the lady down the hall. And my fiance’; And the lady in the office nextdoor.
My conscience is clear. I am sexually attracted to women.
You may now tell him that he is right.
The Nature vs. Nurture argument is irrelevant.
- The problem is Adam & Eve…
Because of the corruption of original sin the world became corrputed.
Diseases, mental disorders, spiritual disorders.
God wants to reconcile the World to himself through Christ.
Back to the way he made it in the Garden of Eden.
There was no homosexuality in the Garden of Eden.
There was no pedophilia in the Garden of Eden.
There was no promiscuity in the Garden of Eden.
There was no adultery in the Garden of Eden.
Jesus said :
Matthew 19:11-12He answered, “Not all can accept [this] word, but only those to whom that is granted. Some are incapable of marriage because they were born so; some, because they were made so by others; some, because they have renounced marriage for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. Whoever can accept this ought to accept it.”
[font=Arial]Christian teaching has been clear since the very beginning.[/font]
For the sake of attaining the kingdom of heaven, we should avoid all sexual immorality.
Sexuality is moral only in the context of a Mutually Self-giving Marriage between a man and a woman.
