I have to agree with Cashlink on a few points. The bible was written by Man. Not God, Not jesus. The other point is regarding the reality of Sin.
Sin is a creation of the Church / Man. There is no Sin imho. They are scare tactics authored by the church to herd sheep.
If I am not mistaken, one would be better off by finding someone of the Jewish faith that is very well versed in Hebrew. As some of you may know,
the chronology of the common christian 'bible' was stolen from the Jews. The 'old testament' started in Early Aramaic, to Hebrew, from there to
Greek, from Greek to Latin, from Latin to the various other languages. By studying the ORIGINAL, written in that language, one may be surprised by
the actual translation and not the translations written by man seeking to control people.
If one bothers to question the 'authority' of a religious path started way after the passing of jesus, you arrive at the cliff edge of the
Spiritual Patent the church awards itself. Many spiritual paths teach of a higher consciousness. That 'Christ Consciousness" or the Christ is not
solely owned and operated by the christian church. Never has, never will. For a single 'spiritual agency' to set itself up as the only game in
town is the epitome of Red Herringdom. That boils down to saying that no other spiritual path is a viable vehicle to God or spiritual salvation.
In my humble opinion, one has to be foolish to even consider the point that God would even care what sexual orientation a person is. In the scope of
things, that's like worrying about some asteroid a million light years from here.
Straingt, Bi or Gay, who cares? What does that have to do with being a spiritual seeker really?
