24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator-who is forever praised. Amen.
26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
This is called the word of God.
I might not have this completely right, if I'm wrong, feel free to correct me.
Paul was a Roman officer whose job it was to hunt down Christians and slay them or arrest and imprison them. He very much believed in his job thinking this to be an act of righteousness. On his way to do this, he saw a vision and was blinded and Jesus spoke with him. Paul reveals in later letters that he was taught a great many things not revealed to others. He is introduced to the other apostles and I'm really not sure how Paul ever becomes one of them. In acts, Paul has a disagreement with one of the other apostles so he goes his separate way. From then on it is claimed that he is the apostle to the gentiles and there is now a split in the church. You have the Jewish church of the law and you have Paul's church to the gentiles without the law.
I have this question. Why doesn't anybody question Paul's claims. If someone comes along and says I saw Jesus who revealed a great many things to me and I am to be your leader - do we just say - okay?
Reading the gospels of Jesus and the letters of Paul - the two do not sound the same.
Jesus says forgive them for they know not what they do as he is being crucified and Paul says God turns them into homosexuals and condemns them because they refused to believe in Jesus. What is worse, not believing in him or crucifying him. Maybe I'm missing something - but it just doesn't sound to me like they are both on the same page.
But okay - there are great spiritual minds who believe in Paul - so I will just simply explain that in the natural world, when a species overpopulates, it turns to homosexuality. In Al Gores movie you see a graph that clearly shows a population explosion within the last hundred years and growing. So according to what I know about nature, you will have homosexuality - people who prefer masturbation. Men who don't want children and women who don't want to be mothers, and this is natural, and if it's natural, according to Paul, it's okay.
So don't "kick against the pricks" (Acts 26:14 King James Version). Let nature have its way, it's God's design.
