Since it's "pride month"(and since I am mentioning it-thumbnail too), guess what topic this post is gon' be about. Mhm. Homosexuality. And here we go, rockin'... Da boat. *chews gum with purpose while cool-dude spy music plays*
I believe it isn't good. Same-sex attraction I think is very much not genetic(not simply based on this video, to be clear; am expecting some "scientific" objections, however, before doing so, please watch this video), rather, while it could have a hormonal element, is mainly, slowly, I'd say, acquired, similar to acquiring what many might call a "fetish". Dopamine, tying it to a specific action, reward-yada-yada stuff. Norman Doidge's book, if you know the fella(if not, google him, I suggest, nay, COMMAND).
Yes it is a straight line made crooked, but no that doesn't mean God seeks to kill you lol; Jesus, eternally perfect, literally came into the court-room and tasted death so that we won't have to, who live in(as we all do, and have contributed to) a world of death, in a world mixed with it, so that we might only also have to taste it for a moment, here, compared to forever. Please see this after reading the rest and watching the video below(thumbnail)> "How Eternity Changes The Problem Of Evil" (4-ish minutes)
Just so we're clear yes I'm recruiting. Culturally distant sissy manliness, forgotten >true< manliness, that is, Jesus. Uncle sam with a special message; y'all sissies(please understand this isn't meant to be sexist, LOL; women are cool, verr cool-I'm basically mansplainin' why, how men should be more sissy-LOL-, lol) can be made manly, which isn't careless and rough, includes gentleness, patience, kindness, sissy stuff, but not. If ya follow my 'splainin'
Know what, this> "Corinthians 13 New American Standard Bible
The Excellence of Love
If I speak with the tongues of mankind and of angels, but do not have love, I have become a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and know all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. And if I give away all my possessions to charity, and if I surrender my body so that I may glory, but do not have love, it does me no good.
Love is patient, love is kind, it is not jealous; love does not brag, it is not arrogant. It does not act disgracefully, it does not seek its own benefit; it is not provoked, does not keep an account of a wrong suffered, it does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; it keeps every confidence, it believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
Love never fails; but if there are gifts of prophecy, they will be done away with; if there are tongues, they will cease; if there is knowledge, it will be done away with. For we know in part and prophesy in part; but when the perfect comes, the partial will be done away with. When I was a child, I used to speak like a child, think like a child, reason like a child; when I became a man, I did away with childish things. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully, just as I also have been fully known. But now faith, hope, and love remain, these three; but the greatest of these is love."
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 New American Standard Bible
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor those habitually drunk, nor verbal abusers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.
>Such< were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God."
I am very open to sincere objections in the form of rhetorical-type questions; hehe, g(od)"do unto others as they'd do unto you"olden(yip yip) rule. Have at it with your scientific objections, but please make the evidence for your claims clear, so I don't have to dig through the mixed-in claims in whatever article ye may share. 🌿😁🕊📖📜✝

What does the chronology of the Bible reveal about the year 1914?
The Bible's answer
According to the chronology of the Bible, God's Kingdom was established in heaven in 1914. This is made clear by a prophecy in the Bible book of Daniel, chapter 4.
The prophecy at a glance. Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, received a dream from God that had prophetic significance. In this dream, a huge tree was cut down. The tree stump was then prevented from growing back for "seven times" (Daniel 4:1, 10-16).
The first fulfillment of prophecy. The great tree represented Nebuchadnezzar (Daniel 4:20-22). The king was figuratively knocked down when he became temporarily insane and could not reign for seven years (Daniel 4:25). After that, God saw to it that he was restored to sanity. Nebuchadnezzar returned to his throne and acknowledged that God is the supreme ruler (Daniel 4:34-36).
Why the prophecy has a second, greater fulfillment. What was the deeper meaning behind the prophecy? All were to realize that God "is the ruler in the kingdom of mankind, and that he gives it to whom he will, and sets over it even the lowest of men" (Daniel 4:17). Was the proud Nebuchadnezzar the one to whom God would eventually give this rulership? No. God had made it clear to him earlier in a dream with prophetic significance that neither he nor any other political ruler would take that role. Instead, God himself would "establish a kingdom that will never be ruined" (Daniel 2:31-44).
Already in ancient times, God had set up a kingdom that represented his rule: the nation of Israel. However, the rulers became unfaithful to God. Therefore, God allowed this kingdom to be reduced to "ruins." However, He announced that He would one day give royal rule to "the one who has the legal right" (Ezekiel 21:25-27). As the Bible shows, it is Jesus Christ to whom this kingly power is rightfully due-for God's kingdom that will have no end (Luke 1:30-33). Unlike Nebuchadnezzar, Jesus is thoroughly humble (Matthew 11:29).
What does the tree in Daniel 4 represent? In the Bible, trees sometimes represent rulers or kingdoms (Ezekiel 17:22-24; 31:2-5). Therefore, the tree is a symbol of God's rule.
What does it mean that the tree was cut down? In the first fulfillment, it meant that Nebuchadnezzar temporarily did not rule as king. In the second, greater fulfillment, it meant that God's reign on earth would be temporarily interrupted. When was this? When Nebuchadnezzar destroyed the city of Jerusalem, where, after all, the kings of Israel sat as God's representatives on the "throne of Jehovah" (1 Chronicles 29:23).
What do the "seven times" mean? The "seven times" are the period of time when God allowed governments to rule on earth without any kingdom from God interfering in their affairs. They began in October 607 B.C.E. That was the year in which, according to biblical chronology, Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians (2 Kings 25:1, 8-10 ).
How long do the "seven times" last? They cannot correspond to a period of only seven years, as in the case of Nebuchadnezzar. Jesus provided the answer to the question, "Jerusalem [a symbol of God's rule] will be trodden down by the nations until the appointed times of the nations are fulfilled" (Luke 21:24). The "appointed times of the nations," that is, the period of time during which God allows His reign to be "trodden down by the nations," are identical to the "seven times" of Daniel 4. Accordingly, the "seven times" had not yet ended when Jesus lived on earth.
The duration of the "seven times" can be found out with the Bible. It says that three and a half "times" are equal to 1,260 days; "seven times" are then twice that: 2,520 days (Revelation 12:6, 14). According to the prophetic rule of "one day for one year," 2 520 days thus correspond to 2 520 years. The "seven times" (2 520 years), which began in October 607 B.C.E., thus ended in October 1914.

This group is for those who believe in The Creator of The Bible, believe he is who he is said to be, that Jesus/Yeshua is his son, and that this place, all that once was originally "very good", was created by The Creator. However not only; it is also for those who have questions to ask about Creation/The Creator(the "idea" or whatever, as some may say). It's basically a free speech group, albeit under The Creator's authority(though how that is determined, well, may basically come down to my interp on things I guess
