    I am conflicted by the scriptures teachings. God describes the union of male and female as sacred and the human body as a sacred temple of God that should not ne defiled. Yet Jesus teaches that what you permit on Earth will be permitted in heaven and what you prohibit on Earth will be prohibited in heaven (Matthew 18. 18). Paul the apostle also tells us to make up our minds in honour of the lord and that we should not judge poeple because God has accepted that person(Romans 14). Then again Paul also tells us that God has given sinners hearts over to filthy thingd and they will do filthy things with each other(Romans 1. 24.)
    I'm confused.

    Yes, and the falsehoods are just as pernicious.

    Mt 18:18 is said to Peter and has been traditionally understood by the Church as the authority to absolve sins.

    Rm 14:3 asks Christians who are well-grounded in the faith to show charity towards Christians who are scrupulous (e.g. in dietary matters or matters of fasting) because they are not as well-grounded in the faith.

    No conflicts here.

    From Deuteronomy, chapter 22
    Bible, King James. Deuteronomy, from The holy Bible, King James version

    19: And they shall amerce him in an hundred shekels of silver, and give them unto the father of the damsel, because he hath brought up an evil name upon a virgin of Israel: and she shall be his wife; he may not put her away all his days.
    20: But if this thing be true, and the tokens of virginity be not found for the damsel:
    21: Then they shall bring out the damsel to the door of her father's house, and the men of her city shall stone her with stones that she die: because she hath wrought folly in Israel, to play the whore in her father's house: so shalt thou put evil away from among you.
    22: If a man be found lying with a woman married to an husband, then they shall both of them die, both the man that lay with the woman, and the woman: so shalt thou put away evil from Israel.
    23: If a damsel that is a virgin be betrothed unto an husband, and a man find her in the city, and lie with her;
    24: Then ye shall bring them both out unto the gate of that city, and ye shall stone them with stones that they die; the damsel, because she cried not, being in the city; and the man, because he hath humbled his neighbour's wife: so thou shalt put away evil from among you.
    25: But if a man find a betrothed damsel in the field, and the man force her, and lie with her: then the man only that lay with her shall die:

    Now that's not very Buddha-like, is it Bbarr ?


    By the way what does Buddhism say about gay "marriage" ?

    Don't tell me about it, I'm just debating a point about a book that I feel is outdated. OK?
