Weird how an all powerful, and all knowing being didn't see it coming, or set things into motion that would save people from hell.The Bible never once lists health reasons as the reason the God of the Bible condemns the act of homosexuality. It always list the fact that God abhors it. Its most likely completely arbitrary. Whether or not its healthy has nothing to do with whether or not its a Biblical sin.If the Bible says "Thou shalt not XXX." and never says "Okay, its cool now." Why should anyone believe that the God of the Bible has changed his opinion?
It just all seems like a really bad joke to me; Believing that the creator of the entire universe thought it necessary to perform some magic tricks in a desert region to some primates in an effort to prove omnipotence, or "save" them from "sin."
If God is all knowing, God creates people knowing that they are being created to suffer for all time. This is a sadistic, and cruel idea. Starting wars is fine, allowing people to go hungry is fine, slaughter is fine, etc; but God forbid someone sleeps with somebody of the same gender.
*Zevn really hates children with unicorn horns, so he grows some in test tubes, listens to them explain that they can't help but have unicorn horns, then attaches them to a device that causes an infinite loop of consciousness, which then allows him to make them suffer for all eternity.*
It's the same. I try so hard to take what people like you say with a grain of salt, acknowledging that you are a product of the world, and the life you've lived. Unfortunately I am constantly reminded of why doctrines like yours should not be allowed to exist, forget freedom; the principles it teaches encourage fear, loathing, violence, and disunity. It is appalling that otherwise intelligent people cannot see it for what it is: an ancient system of control used by civilization that could not properly police itself.
Believe in God if you wish, that is a way of looking at the Universe, and of reality; but do not base your life on an old book that is nigh impossibly inspired by a being who has the power to create everything, and would not create consciousness only to make it suffer, knowing in advance what it's actions would cause(If a human can see this logical failure, omniscience would see it as well.)
I cannot stand people being content with their torpor, and pointing their dull sword of blind faith at the undeserving.
