Which is worse - Homosexuality or the Occult?

I'm sure you can guess which has been more seductive to Christianity.

That's my two cents on the topic of the week.

I'm sure my answer is incorrect... but I would say "homosexuality".

Rationale: dabbling in the occult requires faith... homosexual behavior appeals to the sensual and instantaneous.

Both were punished with the death penalty. But maybe another should be measured against those two: incest, which is not even named among the Gentiles.

Dear Godith,

The list is based on a particular news item - hence I did not list any of the other capital crimes in the list.

I don't suppose that your proposed addition would be germane, but then I never read the series.

Both do reduce to idolatry and false religion. Talk to a hardened homosexual. He has his own language, (sub)culture, values, even religious practices. Talking to one of them is like talking to a Jehovah's Witness or Mormon. S/he has even been brainwashed by his own media.

TheoJunkie said...

Well, is there an answer, or have you already spent your two cents?

And I wonder if you are talking "history of the world including that revealed in Scripture"... or "history of the Church including events between Scripture and now?"

Turretinfan said...

I was trying to imply that the one that has been more seductive to professing Christians (and we could add Pre-Incarnation Christians in that group) is the one that is worse.

Dear Dave,

One hopes that your debate challenge had nothing to do with the subject of this post.

It has unsurprisingly, consequently been rejected for publication on this thread.

Nevertheless, your challenge is the subject of a new post on this thread. here
