Bad, Homophobic Sweaters: On Demonizing the Salvation Army « In Our Words.

I am a Salvation Army adherent. I believe I am called to serve the poor, hungry, abused, and marginalized. That is why I came to worship and that is why I stay.

I also believe the mainstream Christian churches views on same-sex relationships are outdated and do not follow the most basic Christian rule.

That being love.

I refuse to believe my God does not look in favor at loving, monogamous relationships regardless of sexual orientation.

There is too much pain in this world. Too many homeless, hungry, addicted, enslaved, and lost.  Please know I will do my best to serve you.

How you are. Who you are.

With love and grace in Christ.

    In light of your post above, I thought you might especially appreciate this post titled: “Genesis 19: What the Bible REALLY Says Were the Sins of Sodom” (link below).

      I have read and heard of such errors in interpretation. Though usually in that much detail. I like how you make the point that you are not making any of this up and they are not your opinions.

      For me, the bottom line is this.

      1 ) We are not under the old law.
      2 ) Paul just plain flat out was not comfortable with the whole sex thing, period. He wanted the whole world to be celibate monks.
      3 ) If I feel I have to make a judgement call regarding Biblical interpretation, I will err on love.

      Always! Be blessed, friend!
