How do you respond to non-believers who accuse Christians of being hateful to people who support lifestyles that are abominable according to the precepts of our faith?
Relational Problem (How Do You Communicate It?) Tolerance
What Kind of a Culture are we living in? There are 3 cultures in relation to absolute.
- Theonomis culture
- Theonomis culture – where the law of God is supposedly so embedded in our hearts that we all emotively or otherwise think in the same categories. Once upon a time we would talk about the Natural Law in those categories
- Sometimes the Indian Culture gets close to this
- (meaning) Theonomy, from theos (god) and nomos (law), is a hypothetical Christian form of government in which society is ruled by divine law. Theonomists hold that divine law, including the judicial laws of the Old Testament, should be observed by modern societies. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Theonomy
- Heteronomis culture
- Heteronomis Culture – mainstream of the culture is dictated to at the top
- Marxism in secular terms is a heteronomis culture
- Islam is a heteronomous culture
- (meaning) Heteronomy refers to action that is influenced by a force outside the individual, in other words the state or condition of being ruled, governed, or under the sway of another, as in a military occupation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heteronomy
- Autonomous culture
- Autonomous culture – autos meaning self, nomous meaning law
- which means each person dictates their own moral prerogatives
- (meaning) Autonomous In developmental psychology and moral, political, and bioethical philosophy, autonomy is the capacity to make an informed, uncoerced decision. Autonomous organizations or institutions are independent or self-governing. Autonomy can also be defined from a human resources perspective, where it denotes a (relatively high) level of discretion granted to an employee in his or her work. In such cases, autonomy is known to generally increase job satisfaction. Autonomy is a term that is also widely used in the field of medicine — personal autonomy is greatly recognized and valued in health care. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Autonomy
Socialogical Issue – What is the problem now? (One person disagreeing with another and vice versa) If we are an autonomous culture and I answer your question, are you going to give me the privilege of my autonomy too or as soon as you disagree with my answer will you switch to a heteronomous mode and dictate for me what I must believe as well?
(meaning) secular(Adjective) Temporal; something that is worldly or otherwise not based on something timeless. … Secular(adj) of or pertaining to this present world, or to things not spiritual or holy; relating to temporal as distinguished from eternal interests; not immediately or primarily respecting the soul, but the body; worldly. https://www.definitions.net/definition/secular
I have a problem with Christianity and here’s my problem. Christians are generally against racism but when it comes to the homosexual they discriminate against the homosexual how do you explain that?
A: In the first part of the question it’s an ism you’re talking about, the second part of the question you particularize it with individual.
- The reason we believe that discrimination ethnically is wrong is because the race and ethnicity of a person is sacred, you do not violate a person’s ethnicity and race it is a sacred gift
- and the reason we believe in an absolute nester sexuality is because we believe sexuality is sacred as well and that’s why we make a choice that same way
Tell me why you treat race as sacred and desacralized sexuality?
- We view marriage as God has given it to us and if you take the whole corpus of the world view – is the most sacred relationship into which you will enter; because love is given one word in English but there are four words in the Greek; agape, fillet, eros and storge.
- agape is God’s love
- fillet who is friendship love or brotherly love
- storge is protective love of parental love
- eros is romantic love
Do you realize marriage is the only one that pulls these four together?
- if you take agape out of that, eros is gone for whatever you want to do and romantic love becomes redefined
- to us the Bible gives the sacredness of marriage as Christ is to the church the bridegroom and the bride; and in that sacredness the beauty of a consummate relationship between a man and a woman as it is shown in the singular commitment of the marital vow – I do – I will. When you say I do to the one you say I don’t do all of the others and you say I will to one you’re saying I won’t to all of the others so any departure from that beauty and sacredness of the four confluences of love is a biblical notion of what it really means to be married. And to just take one behaviour and make it look like it’s aberrant is not right, all departures from that are not acceptable in the sight of God
- the theological position is a consummate relationship between a man and a woman in the procreative Act and in the sacredness and paying each other the ultimate compliment of taking each other at their word so theologically this is the way we see it
- sociologically we’ve been put into a conundrum so we come then in relationally how do we deal with it? and here’s the hard part:
- God gives you the most sacred gift of the prerogative of choice but God does not give you the privilege of determining a different outcome to what the choice will entail. The consequences are bound to the choice and you go right back to the book of Genesis and it tells you do what is right, will not you will you not be accepted; but if you don’t sin stalks a veil at the door desires to have you and so when I look at the sacredness of marriage any change from it from the biblical point of view is a departure from the biblical mandate
- but at the same time the Bible commands us to love even those with whom we disagree and our responsibility as the church is never to hate the individual – our privilege is to love and only God can change the heart of a person and God is the ultimate judge and anaplerotic society
- let us as Christians be both light, salt and learn to love one another and let God be the judge over all of us. He is the one who is pure in his judgments – we can make errors
