The Bible says homosexuals and adulturers

Should be executed we dont hear much about it from christians.

It also said women should be sold into slavery.
People who work on a Sunday should be killed.
People who eat shellfish will go to hell.
People who wear clothes made of two different materials should be stoned to death.
Gluttons should have their head's chopped off.
And not very nice things will happen to Blasphemers..

But that's only if you read into it only what you want to read.

@BackyardShaman And I don't know anyone who can manage to wear 100% Cotton or Wool or Nylon or silk etc. Most things are blended these days.

@SW-User You may be right - I don't know. We need remember though that these ancient writings reflect the society in which, and for which, they were written.

I read two different Bibles and no where in either Bible says anything about this

Now the 10 commandments, thats another story. That mentioned this

@HumanEarth The Ten Commandments do not say anything about homosexuality. Stop getting your religion from silly Hollywood movies and conmen preachers.

@Pikachu fanatism stupid
Entwistle · 56-60, M
Most of them are adulterers and homosexuals?

@Entwistle Woke feminists and old ladies.
Graylight · 51-55, F
And where does it say that?
@Graylight

Maybe i would have phrased it more as "Actually that interpretation is debatable and here's why" rather than "You really need to know about this thing i know instead of citing a quote like dummy. Educate yourself."

Perhaps that was not your intent but that's how it came off.
Something to be mindful of in the future.

@Pikachu The data in not open to much interpretations, the evangelical interpretation is almost purely wrong and inherently hypocritical.

Anyone who launches neck deep into discussing a topic on which they show their naïveté does not earn respect. Poor study doesn't get you cuddles in school. It brings correction.
@Graylight

Look, no need to double down on why you think being rude is justified.
I'm just pointing out that there are less confrontational ways to correct a person.
Additionally, a more neutral correction is more likely to be met with an open mind while a confrontational or condescending correction is more likely to just cause the other person to dig in their heals.

Knowing the right answer is only half the equation. The other half is convincing people that you have the right answer. You catch more flies with honey than vinegar, as the saying goes.

But you do you.

Have a pleasant day✌️

We don't hear about it because it's awkward and uncomfortable.

The general interpretation I get is that that was Israelite law, and while the verse affirms that homosexuality is wrong (also bolstered by Paul), we don't have to follow the prescribed Levite punishment for it.

Yeah, I don't find it particularly compelling either.

Some people like books, some only like one book 📕
ArishMell · 70-79, M
I don't know if the Bible actually does say that - it might in the Hebrews' Old Testament I suppose - but cold-blooded murder is hardly a Christian act!

fanatism dangerous
Oh here we go bring out the Kleenex..... learn the difference between the old and new covenant.

You will learn why we spend our efforts on the gospel.
@BritishFailedAesthetic

Actually yeah, let's learn about that.

Did Jesus come to abolish the old law?
Is that god of the old testament the same god in the new testament? Does he change?
Are the commandments he handed down to Moses valid but the other Mosaic laws are to be ignored?

The bible does not say fuck-all about homosexuals, it actually speaks of laying with children and adulterers, Learn your facts!

Doesn’t mean we should
Renaci · 36-40
Oh chistians would love to murder their precevied enemies and def have murdered millions over the centuries. But it's unpopular to say such things. They know it's morally wrong so they keep it under wraps. But if they ever got power again they would start holocausting people again.
SW-User
@Renaci really?

Are you an Anglican then?

@SW-User Your English translation seems somewhat uncouth. Maybe that is the influence of American English. Try reading some pre INTERNET novels. Iris Murdoch wrote in quintessential English.

@Emosaur Nor do I understand German humour. Or for that matter, American humour.
