Until recent decades, same-sex behavior was placed in the same category with gluttony or drunkenness — as a vice of excess anyone might be prone to — not as the expression of a sexual orientation. Celibacy is a gift, not a mandate. The Bible honors celibacy as a good way of living — Jesus was celibate, after all — but it also makes clear that celibacy must be a voluntary choice. Condemning same-sex relationships is harmful to the LGBT community. Jesus taught in the Sermon on the Mount that good trees bear good fruit, while bad trees bear bad fruit. Sodom and Gomorrah involved an attempted gang rape, not a loving relationship.
To Christians arguing 'no' on marriage equality: the Bible is not decisive
Lately I have heard devout Christians saying that carbon dating is flawed in that the great flood somehow negates the scientific legitimacy of the process. Could someone please explain this argument to me? And incidentally, just because you're a Christian, it doesn't mean you're a young earth creationist. I myself, a Christian, am a Old Earth creationist I believe the universe is billions of years old, etc. Implying that all Christians are YEC is like saying all atheists study the bible some do, some don't. Scientists examined samples to substantiate what carbon supplies are valid for courting.

How to defend creation vs. I believe in creation, but I am not sure how to best defend this belief against evolution. Can you explain where to start? T he first thing to understand is that the debate is not between science and religion; rather it is between which belief system evolution or creation best fits the facts. Assumptions and presuppositions are the starting points of this debate over origins.
