John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

In and of itself, homosexual fornication is not a sin

Recommended Posts

I often hear Christians say that homosexual acts are an abomination, citing Bible verses which condemn such; the claim being that, God had restricted sex to marriage, between husband and wife.

 

However in my opinion this is nonsensical, just as the notion of picking up the number two; a number is merely a construct. Wherefore, a homosexual act is not, in and of itself, abominable. But rather, such an act is abominable because it violates the principle of chastity, which is: No gratification beyond the intent of procreation. In other words, a person never picks up the number two, but rather, two of a particular thing.

 

Are there any circumstances/arguments which justify a husband and wife in gratifying their sexual urges (when not intending to procreate), when a homosexual couple is not justified in the same?

Well, like the Bible, the authoritativel, unchanging word of God says, homosexuality is an abomination. Altoutgh humanity is commanded to be furirful and multiply, it is not a sin to not reproduce.

 

​​​​​​In what way is homosexuality not an abomination? Pole A is designed for slot B, you can't put pole A into the gradage shoot and call a tent. But there's no reason to look further than God's commands not to or to do something.

Well there are many who agree with him about gays, but they are trying to placate their own views of themselves, as they see anyone who follows Biblical reasoning on such things are far too harsh to be the type of quote/unquote Christian they see themselves as. It's not about God or Jesus to them. It's about a feel good exercise in inclusion into a social group they think Christianity is all about.

Yea and Amen brother. The Scriptures are so clear for those with eyes to see and ears to hear. They have to deliberately distort Scripture to try and ease their consciences. Men of reprobate minds would be the Scriptural definition for them.
