I was at a conference in Red Lodge this weekend, and since there were only 11 TV Channels offered at the lodgings, I ran across this.
Just a thought.
I never did decide to be hederosexual...it's called following "nature"
BTW Wendy: I never did decide to be hederosexual...it's called following "nature"
"Also, there are many refferences in OT scripture that have no bearing on the world today since we no longer live under the old covenant but are now under the law of Liberty found in Christ."
Before that their natural attraction it to the oposite sex until influence from an outside source.
Again, surely you too are not comparing the natural uncontrolled sexual desires of the animal kingdom to the reasoning and logical thinking of the human race?
post hoc ergo propter hoc
Post hoc ergo propter hoc, Latin for "after this, therefore because of this", is a logical fallacy (of the questionable cause variety) that states, "Since that event followed this one, that event must have been caused by this one." It is often shortened to simply post hoc and is also sometimes referred to as false cause, coincidental correlation, or correlation not causation. It is subtly different from the fallacy cum hoc ergo propter hoc, in which the chronological ordering of a correlation is insignificant.
Post hoc is a particularly tempting error because temporal sequence appears to be integral to causality. The fallacy lies in coming to a conclusion based solely on the order of events, rather than taking into account other factors that might rule out the connection.
A non sequitur (English: It does not follow; pronounced /?n?n's?kw?t?r/) is a Latin term for a conversational and literary device, often used for comedic purposes. It is a comment that, because of its apparent lack of meaning relative to what it follows, seems absurd to the point of being humorous or confusing.
The use of non sequitur in humor can be deliberate or unintentional. Literally, the expression is Latin for "it does not follow." It comes from the words "non" meaning not, and the deponent verb sequor, sequi, secutus sum, meaning to follow. In other literature, a non sequitur can denote an abrupt, illogical, unexpected or absurd turn of plot or dialogue not normally associated with or appropriate to that preceding it.
The non sequitur can be understood as the converse of cliché. Traditional comedy and drama can depend on the ritualization and predictability of human emotional experiences, where the Theatre of the Absurd uses disjunction and unpredictability.
This use of the term is distinct from the non sequitur in logic, where it is a fallacy.
Begging the question (or petitio principii, "assuming the initial point") is a type of logical fallacy in which the proposition to be proven is assumed implicitly or explicitly in the premise. The first known definition in the West is by the Greek philosopher Aristotle around 350 BCE, in his book Prior Analytics, where he classified it as a material fallacy. Begging the question is related to the circular argument, circulus in probando (Latin, "circle in proving") or circular reasoning, though these are considered absolutely different by Aristotle.
I am just a simple country preacher who relies on nothing but logic to make some sence of the world around
I am just a simple country preacher who relies on nothing but logic to make some sence of the world around while I am sojorning here awaiting the day when my Lord takes me out of this mess. Meanwhile I will continue to teach the whole council of God and proclaim the truth of His Word.
I would submit that the Scriptures, both OT and NT. teach the exactly the opposite. All things are permissible unless they are expressly forbidden.
If sexual orientation is genetic, say like left-handedness, why is the population of homosexuals significantly higher in urban populations than in rural populations? Logically, homosexuality should follow a similar distribution to left-handedness which has a consistent population regardless of where those individuals live.
Many people, Christian people, even conservative Christian people, have changed their position on this issue after hearing four words: "Mom, Dad, I'm gay."
"Why are all those people who call themselves gay so miserable, angry and unhappy?"
