All people are created equal, but the same cannot be said for all ideas. Professing Christians who engage in hateful rants do a very poor job of representing Christ and they do not speak for millions of ordinary Christians who unfortunately often get lumped in with the lunatic fringe of Christendom.Faithful Bible-believers shouldn't be labeled ‘haters' or be treated like Jim Crow for simply being true to the same historic Christian faith that led to the of slavery, for example (contrary to the one-sided claims of men like James Cone).It is the view of people who not only meet the requirements of being a Bible interpreter but who, along with me, care about the eternal souls of people.The historic Christian view according to accurate biblical interpretation is that sex outside of the sacred bonds of male-female marriage is wrong.Do we really deserve the scarlet letter B ("bigot") now just for believing that the Bible teaches what's best for families and for society?
Then I apologized and told him that I was completely in the wrong to insinuate that about his daughter. He said he understood where that comment came from and that (remarkably) he didn’t take it personally. Thankfully, no other coworkers were within earshot (this happened in a conference room while waiting for some other coworkers to join us), and I don’t work with clients or customers anyway. I thought the word was normal and commonly used, because that’s how it was at home (the exact quote I blurted out was screamed at me countless times at home and I was called a whore several times a day by my teachers). To all of those saying my behavior is not Christian or that I am not a “true Christian”: I am well aware that Jesus was a friend of prostitutes, but Jesus is not all there is to Christianity. Also, I just wanted to say, I did not feel attacked at all by the comments. It appears some commenters think criticism of Christianity is an “attack” or “bashing,” but this is not so. I’m sorry you had that word screamed at you ever, let alone so frequently — that’s horrible and must have been a very difficult way to grow up.” She replied: “It was a difficult way to grow up *at the time*, but it kept me in line, and thus led me to become a better adult. (But we’ll probably disagree on that.)” While I do indeed disagree, I am deeply impressed with letter-writers who handle disagreement from a mob of strangers with this much grace.This is why feelings of "heartbreak" often happen when people who've engaged in sexual intercourse then go their separate ways.In God's good design, sex is reserved for a man and a woman who have entered into a legally binding marriage covenant.It shouldn't be surprising to see a Christian response to the contrary.Of course, some "Christians" aren't exactly shining examples of tact and grace, though such a tone should always be our aim.
One practical reason the Bible forbids it is because of how powerful sex is.
