His soul is not satisfied with goodness.

Homosexuality is not singled out by Scripture, despite what this guy thinks.

What's your opinion on homosexuality; not your God's. Your own.

I have the mind of Christ. i He hates homosexuals and He also hates everybody.

A species could go forever without having gay sex once, but if there was no heterosexuality, the species wouldn't even exist. This is proof in itself.

That shows a "natural" aspect of it. ii But it's not wrong for a man and a woman to have sex not having children.

Human beings are disgusting on some level. We might as well limit them.

We are indeed evil, iii but children are a good thing. iv

But some children are born speaking lies from the womb, are they not? Why bother risking it?

Yes. v But a wife is a "good thing" vi and there is no prohibition to have sex and have children which are also good to have.

So then we may "join in flesh" as well, no?

Who? Homosexuals? Such a thing is disgusting to God, and those who practice it unrepentantly will not inherit the kingdom of God. vii

Then condemn us and be done with it. Why the wait? To hell. Why not strike us down now, while we're together?

Is our article on the issue not condemnation? What are you waiting for? Why does God not do this to you? He could. viii He is also merciful and longsuffering. ix

Is it not wrong of God to create someone just to hate them?

No. x He even hates believers. xi

Okay, if God hates even you, who are you to judge someone, such as homosexuals, for being "hated in the eyes of god?"

It is not wrong to judge, as long as you judge by the standard of God. xii

You are not a god to be judging others.

Scripture xiii judges you, and I show that Scripture is judging you.

I appreciate the response, but it doesn't quite cover the question. If God hates everyone, why must some people be especially hated? If we are all hated then surely we are all wicked?

False teachers are especially hated, or at least especially punished. xiv But homosexuals are not some exceptional group above or below other sinners. "All have sinned" xv and all need to "come to repentance." xvi

You show that scripture is judging, but you also judge.

Yes, and as I have said, it's not wrong to judge.

If homosexuals are not any worse than other sinners, such as you and I, why are they to be judged so harshly? You, yourself, have a thread posted on your website of you calling homosexuals and their prayers "abominations." If we are no worse than homosexuals realistically there is no reason to hate them for being "sinners," since we are all sinners, as you just said.

All who don't repent will be judged harshly. xvii I also have articles about other kinds of sinners, calling their prayers abominations. xviii

  1. 1 Corinthians 2:

    16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?” But we have the mind of Christ.


  2. Romans 1:

    26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.


  3. Genesis 6:

    5 Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.


  4. Ecclesiastes 6:

    3 If a man begets a hundred children and lives many years, so that the days of his years are many, but his soul is not satisfied with goodness, or indeed he has no burial, I say that a stillborn child is better than he— 4 for it comes in vanity and departs in darkness, and its name is covered with darkness.


  5. Psalm 58:

    3 The wicked are estranged from the womb;
    They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.


  6. Proverbs 18:

    22 He who finds a wife finds a good thing,
    And obtains favor from the Lord.


  7. 1 Corinthians 6:

    9 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 homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.


  8. Deuteronomy 32:

    39 ‘Now see that I, even I, am He,
    And there is no God besides Me;
    I kill and I make alive;
    I wound and I heal;
    Nor is there any who can deliver from My hand.


  9. Romans 9:

    22 What if God, wanting to show His wrath and to make His power known, endured with much longsuffering the vessels of wrath prepared for destruction, 23 and that He might make known the riches of His glory on the vessels of mercy, which He had prepared beforehand for glory, 24 even us whom He called, not of the Jews only, but also of the Gentiles?


  10. Romans 9:

    14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? Certainly not!


  11. See section IV. God's Hate Toward Believers. ^
  12. Luke 12:

    57 “Yes, and why, even of yourselves, do you not judge what is right?


  13. which is God ^
  14. Matthew 18:

    6 “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!


  15. Romans 3:

    23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,


  16. 2 Peter 3:

    9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.


  17. Isaiah 13:

    9 Behold, the day of the Lord comes,
    Cruel, with both wrath and fierce anger,
    To lay the land desolate;
    And He will destroy its sinners from it.


  18. I have called the prayers of a Calvinist, an eccumenicist, and those who celebrate Christmas an abomination. ^
