You Cannot Be a Gay Christian!

  •  

    1 Corinthians 6:9 is generally used as the argument against homosexuality; taken out of context, it is easy to see how.  But, put into context and it is a statement against the "wicked" and how the "wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God."  Now, I understand wicked to have a meaning synonymous, and in context, with the rest of the three versus, to wit: sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, thieves, the greedy, drunkards, verbal abusers, and swindlers.  Taken in this context, "men who submit to or perform homosexual acts" would seem more in the context of whoring and sexual misconduct, than that of a loving relationship.  It certainly does not concern itself with love as much as it seems to totally cover wickedness and sin.  None of it intones the loving relationship between two people, much less anyone seriously searching for a relationship with Christ or God.  But then, how are we to really know what was meant when there are so many different translations?  Take it on faith?  I think not.
