…. This, dear anon, I’m not sure. I wish I had some answers for you but I really don’t know much about the science about it all.
In fact, if you would come off anon and message me, I’m sure we could have a pretty cool discussion about this and I would love to know more! So please? :)
Okay, firstly, bible passages that say it’s homosexuality is wrong.
I personally think that homosexuality is wrong and it is plainly stated in the bible, however, I am not in a position to condem or judge anyone. So hate the sin, love the sinner, that’s my take on it.
I hope this helps :)
"All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3:16-17
If I’m going to believe one thing, then I will have to believe everything that’s written in the bible. All of it is inspired by God, it doesn’t say some. Also, who am I to judge what’s right and what’s wrong. So no, I wholeheartedly follow whatever is in the bible.
Hmm, here’s what I think.
I respect their beliefs, but here’s a quote from a book I recently read, Have a Little Faith by Mitch Albom, that will phrases what I want to say perfectly.
Now. My turn. Look, if you say that science will eventually prove there is no God, on that I must differ. No matter how small they take it back, to a tadpole, to an atom, there is always something they can’t explain, something that created it all at the end of the search.”
“And no matter how far they go the other way- to extend life, play around with genes, clone this, clone that, live to one hundred and fifty- at some point, life is over. And then what happens? When life comes to and end?”
He leaned back. He smiled.
“When you come to the end, that’s where God begins.”
I feel like they are missing out on so much, it’s this unexplainable power that’s out there that they are missing out on. God is awesome, and His grace is so great, the fact that they refuse to acknowledge some higher power in our wonderful creation and maintain that it was a mere coincidence, the big bang, well… I don’t know how one does that.
Another quote from the book:
Many great minds have set out to disprove God’s existence. Sometimes, they retreat to the opposite view. C.S.Lewis, who wrote so eloquently of faith, initially wrestled with the very concept of God and called himself “the most dejected and reluctant convert in all of England.” Louis Pasteur, the great scientist, tried to disprove a divine existence through facts and research, in the end, the grand design of man convinced him otherwise.
So I don’t know how they do it, convincing themselves no higher power exists, but I know God is there, and that He loved us so much He gave Him son. I can’t deny that and I don’t deny sometimes struggling with my faith but at the end of the day, I give in and admit that God is there, and He’s amazing.
So.. I pray for atheists to one day come to know of God, but in the mean time, I respect them and their beliefs.
Sorry this turned out to be a really lengthy reply that I’m sure you won’t even read.
