No, what you're doing is arguably worse because you're declaring something a sin even though the other things that use the exact same wording are not considered sins even by you. They're considered cultural taboos and hygiene laws. By singling this one thing out as a sin and not the rest of them, you're cherry picking.
Where am I declaring something a sin even though the other things that use the exact same wording aren't considered sins??? Show me. I have posted in this thread and others numerous times, please find one
. Show me just ONE
instance where the Bible called something a sin, with no mitigating passages, and I ignored it.
Shima, honestly, I'm a bit galled by your display; you assert I'm cherry-picking the Bible, and yet I'm asking you for what feels like the hundredth time to show me where and how, and you've consistently failed to do so.
I've addressed your stance, several times, that the word "abomination" really means "cultural taboo". I don't accept that argument. At this point, either we agree to disagree, we generate a new argument, or we move on.
But don't tell me I'm zeroing in on homosexuals simply because that's the narrative you can accept. The Bible calls many things wrong; some of them are things I'm
guilty of. I don't shy away from calling them wrong. The Bible used
to say other things were wrong, and are now allowed. I don't continue to say they're disallowed.
Like I said, I think you mean to say "Starship you are not accepting my premise that perhaps the word doesn't mean what it does," in which case you'd be right. Nevertheless, unless you can show me where I've done otherwise, stop saying I have.
