"Isn't this the way you want to believe all Christians (or people in general) should think and act?"

Huh, that`s not passive-aggressive poo-kicking, is it?

You know, there are different levels in being a Christian. It`s a process, and there are as many things to separate a Christian from full communion with God as there are to separate an atheist.

the passivity was what was morally wrong in that cultural context.


That does seem to fit with the other possible meanings of the word.

Incidentally, if anyone looks into the possible meanings of "arsenokoitai", comes across the suggestion that it refers to men who play a passive role in homosexual sex and wonders why on earth that's suggested as a possibility - it`s a matter of cultural context.

The verse would have been written in the Roman empire and intended to be read by Romans. Homosexual sex between men was generally considered reasonable and acceptable behaviour in Roman society before it was conquered by Christianity, but it was generally considered unacceptable for a Roman man to play a passive role in it. Not for the sex in particular, but because a Roman man who was a free citizen wasn`t supposed to play a passive role in anything - the passivity was what was morally wrong in that cultural context.

What other book is still deciphered as fact that we follow today other than religious text. It's like saying that cavemen had a better understanding of how the wheel worked, and if you question anything that caveman said, your an idiot. When will we understand that, as a race we do evolve, maybe not as much physically as mentally, to better understand what God really is. Just because some dude said it 2000 years ago, and some other guy thought it was right, doesnt make it right. Open your mind and eventually you can see the wonders of what God really is. Stop putting God in some little box (or Book) and saying thats what god is.
