Re: A New Way to Dialogue about Homosexuality

I don’t want to drag on irrelevant stuff into this discussion. However, I am sure you are aware that greek language have 3 different meanings for ‘love’. There is agape (godly love), fileo (brotherly love) and eros (lust). When paul speaks of love in the bible he never uses the word eros. Clearly homosexuality from the paul point of view is lust. There is nothing wrong with the ‘fileo love’ and relationships amongst brothers (men) however this does not include the un natural lusting for each other. I think there is a clear distinction in that verse given to us. Also.. Paul clearly tells us that this kind of sexuality is un natural (it’s NOT natural) and it was not meant to be like this (meaning that God did not create things this way and these things are a result of sin). I can’t see how you can go from there to ‘it is ok if it was in a loving relationship’…
