Your lack of understanding does NOT constitute a contradiction in what GOD says.
I don't place conditions nor am I promoting my own beliefs.
Yes, you are.
That scripture doesn't mean we shouldn't tell our brothers the truth of God's Word, as written in His Word. To not do so would be committing an evil against them and directly go against His wishes.
It is far worse to assume you understand more than you do and teach what you have not yet learned for yourself. And by 'learn' I mean, specifically, experienced.
I do my best to teach His Words as accurately as I possibly can as there are many that haven't been taught.
If you can not teach 100% accurately, then you are doing more damage than good. Study to show thyself approved. THEN teach.
Do not all be teachers, my brothers, because we teachers will be judged more hardly than others.
The subject of those scriptures is found in verse 11:25
Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
~1 Timothy 2:4
The subject of that verse is ALL MEN. ALL. All 'gentiles' and all of Israel. That's the plan. ALL.
You might as well accept it because it isn't going to change.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: But fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7
Indeed they do. Did you look up the word 'hubris,' by any chance?

This all sounds a little bit 'internal' to me, I haven't noticed anyone doing double-penetration in public where I live. Where is paedophilia considered OK? I think sitting at home, clicking on link after link on the internet is going to give you a bit of a messed up view of the world. I think you are reaching out with your own internal demons and I respect you for your bravery. The constant attacks against gays are a worry though - do they threaten you? are you concerned that they may try and 'turn you'? are you so unsure of your sexuality that you can't stand to look at them? You certainly seem to get excited about them. hmmm
