Christian and Queer

I hope it’s not too cheeky to promo my own blog, but Christian and Queer is a safe space on Tumblr where apart of inspiring christian quotes I post feminism, interesting bible stuff relating us being queer and also open to everyone (no matter the religion, race or sexual orientation or gender) to vent.

Thanks! We have a network, you can join, sending us a message.

Anonymous asked: Can you list actual scripture that proves your point? 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says: “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..."etc Jesus died so we can repent & help us OVERCOME sin so we can walk by the Spirit & not our flesh. I'm not judging. I have a friend who is a Christ believing lesbian. I could use your answer to uplift her, but only if you can prove biblical truth.

What you asking for is exactly the point. There is NO scripture, neither affirming or non-affirming, for a loving homosexual relationship. When the bible does speak of homosexual activity, it is in regards to violence and rape as opposed to love and commitment. In the scripture that you have mentioned, the word for “homosexual” is mistranslated most likely do to interpretation bias of the translator. The actual greek terminology in this context is “abusers of themselves with mankind” and “effiminate” these two words have been joined together to describe “homosexuality” by translators but this is an improper joining because, as I mentioned before, they do not relate to a loving homosexual relationship. 

Now, some people try to make the claim that this argument states that homosexuality is a sin unless it is loving and commitment in which case, we are somehow making excuses for certain kinds of homosexuality and not others. This counter argument is preposterous to me. Why, you ask? Because it is the same way with heterosexual people. If they engage in sexual activity in a way that is unloving and noncommittal then it would be just as sinful as two gay men who did not love each other and were not committed. There are no excuses here. 

Case and point: Jesus directly spoke that THE greatest commandment is to love God and then to love others as yourself. If you do this, then all other laws will be fulfilled. I like to look at it this way: If you are unsure of an action whether it be sinful or not ask yourself two questions: Is this act loving towards God? If not, it is a sin. If it is, then ask the next question: Is this act loving towards others? If not it is a sin, EVEN if the act is loving towards God. If it is loving towards both God and humankind there is no biblical basis why such an activity would be sin. Find one sin in all of scripture that is loving towards human kind and God. You won’t be able to. But then ask yourself about homosexual love. In a proper context, (with the same judgment as a heterosexual romance), there is nothing about this that is not loving towards God or towards humankind. 

Hope that helped,

If homosexuality is a sin, why is it the only sin that expresses itself as love? John Shore (via godinthebrokenness)
