As I have explained many times here I do not know the bible well. I know a few of the big verses but by and large I have tried hard to avoid the bible. Not that I am against some of its teachings but I think a lot of people twist the words in the bible to fit what they want it to mean.
I do know that a lot of people use the bible to prove that god does not like homosexuality. I’m not sure where it says this but many bible thumpers seem to think it’s in there.
I was surprised to run across this blog today, c4him.com. I didn’t dig into the blog but read a couple of posts on the front page.
Her youngest daughter is graduating soon from high school and like all parents she is worried about her future and the decisions she will have to make. She finds comfort in this verse from Philippians (whoever they are) 2:13
For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him.
She goes on to give her take on the passage:
I love the way this translation reads. It makes so much sense.
God has given us the desires that began when we were just children… it might have been singing, dancing, art, crafts, flowers, building, cooking, making people laugh….
Whatever it was that brought us the most joy may have had the hidden key to our divine plan.
As long as our young people continue in their faith, seeking God and staying in communion with Him, then they can trust that the desire in their heart is planted there by God, and that He will give them the power to follow that dream.
I don’t know how this person feels about homosexuality but if she is anything like her brethren she probably thinks they are abominations, sinners, perverts etc… Yet the passage and her take on it fly in the face of the belief that god hates fags. In fact it proves what I have said for years that if there is a god he made everyone just as he wanted them to be.
In the previous post she has inserted an image of some religious dude strumming on what looks like a very large penis. Those ancient religious dudes could sure play a mean penis. Maybe I just need more sleep but I find both of these post rather amusing.
As I read a little more of her blog I noticed that indeed she is not fond of homosexuals. Big surprise.
