Interesting article.   Even believers forget that putting our trust in the risen Jesus does not change us overnight, at least in every area.   I had some changes in quick time myself, and others that are still a work in progress.


Sexual sin is one of the harder areas to transform, and that itself makes for an interesting discussion (probably due, I am thinking, to the fact that man, unlike animals, involves his spiritual nature in sexual relationships).

 It maysurprise some readers, but conversionto Christ did not initially change myattraction for other women.


What conversion did change immediatelywas my mind. Indeed, I was notconverted out of homosexuality; I wasconverted out of unbelief.

Truth is not based on feelings.   This is the great error of our current nation (and out nation alone).


The mind changes, and in time,the feelings usually follow.    It may feel right to want to be angry at someone, and not be willing to forgive.   But that is not the truth.


From the article:


The Lord’s light illumined my sin through the law and illumined my hope through Jesus and the gospel. The gospel destroyed me before the Lord built me back up.

Jesus: For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. But if you believe not his writings, how shall you believe my words? Psalm 37:21 The wicked borrows and does not pay back, But the righteous is gracious and gives.

Homosexuality is not a sin. Sexuality has nothing to do with religion. It is biology and it is naturally a continuum like every other trait on earth. God has fuck-all nothing to do with it.

Of course you are going to tell yourself.   Romans chapter 1.

I've told myself nothing. These are facts of nature. Not my facts. You've told yourself a 2000 year old fable. You are the one telling yourself stories.

Plus, telling people there is native ancestry in your lineage is not cultural appropriation.

So you believe in sin?


Cause if you do not, saying something is sin is a rather meaningless statement.   Is that what you were giving us?

Oh Jesus Christ now I have to explain to this idiot that “sin” has multiple definitions and can simply be used to mean “offense”. Oh Jesus Christ now I will also have to explain to this idiot that because I used the phrase Jesus Christ doesn’t necessarily mean I believe in Jesus Christ.
