    Yes, it is possible to be a homosexual and a Christian. Provided, one lives a life as we all should, a life of chastity. The sexual union is reserved for one man and one women in marriage (not prior to marriage, the second, third or forth marriage, and not with contraceptives).

    No – Christians are called to be a separate people. (Romans 12:1-3)

    Paul goes on to say that, “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools…Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

    29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

    30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

    31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

    32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. (Romans 12:21-32)

    Scripture continually calls Christians to holiness. Any evil embraced will not please the Lord.

    Wow. I would probably first ask if you yourself are a professing Christian. Since I don’t know the answer to that, I’d be curious. Either way, though, that doesn’t determine my response.

    You say we are all called to live a life of chastity, and that it is that “life” that would allow a person to be a homosexual and a Christian at the same time. How so? By “chaste”, do you mean never have sex? I would have to assume you do, since you later state that the “sexual union is reserved for one man and one women in marriage”, and you would be directly contradicting yourself if you meant that a homosexual couple COULD have sex, as long as they were faithful to each other. Can’t have both – so I was just curious what you mean by that comment.

    I agree, the sexual union should just be for a man and wife, within the bonds of marriage. I agree that it should not be prior to marriage. However, you make further arguments that are not Biblically supported entirely. Let’s say Man A has had a divorce from Woman A, as a result of Woman A’s infidelity. In that case, a divorce is Biblically allowed. Let’s also say that Woman B has had a divorce from Man B, as a result of Man B’s infidelity, which would also be Biblically allowed. What if Man A and Woman B were to then get married, and have sex, and have children? This is not prohibited by Scripture, as their divorces were allowed due to infidelity on their previous spouses’ parts. So 2nd marriages are not in and of themselves forbidden. Same would also go for 3rd or 4th marriages, in similar circumstances. And if you would kindly point me to the verse or section which, in its proper context, expressly forbids contraceptives, I would appreciate it greatly.

    We can discuss if you wish.

    Regarding divorce and remarriage, consider Matthew 5:32. Depending on that “exception clause,” there can be NO divorce, ever, and therefore, NO re-marriage.
