I know this is a controversial question, so you don't have to answer if you feel like I'm putting you on the spot. Do side b Christians believe that God intentionally creates certain people to be lgbt, or, as the old cliche goes, do they see this identity as a side effect of a fallen world?
Idk if there is one official side b answer, but here’s my piping hot take.
It starts with a question: what does healthy human sexuality look like? Genesis 2 provides a glimpse into what that looks like. One man meets and is attracted to one woman, woman (also attracted to said man) meets man, man clings to woman, one flesh. They cherish and protect each other, kids raised, etc. Etc.
Of course, Genesis 3 kinda…says that isn’t anyone’s sexuality. “Yet your urge shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.” Since Genesis 3, human sexuality has been corrupted and defined by domination, struggle, and possession. That’s…not healthy, and not God’s plan, but a curse. This is reflected in Paul’s teaching in marriage. The crucifix is the marriage bed.
Really,the only healthy sexuality is expressed in marriage, between one man and one woman, and only those two people. In heaven, they will neither marry nor be given in marriage.
This combined means a few things:
1. The only healthy expression of human sexuality is in the marriage bed (the marriage bed is undefiled) and between spouses. Any lust outside of that is sinful.
2. Marriage isn’t the end all be all of life. Jesus condones being a single pringle for the sake of the kingdom, and Paul advises against marriage as well.
3. Marriage is a temporary thing on earth.
So, I’d like you to look at all the straight people around you. Do they live this out? No? Hey, their sexuality isn’t exactly the Biblical standard either.
So, I guess the long and short of it is yes, my sexuality is f*cked up and a result of post fall sin, but like…so is everyone else’s.
TL;DR: asexual people may have the healthiest sexuality.
What if Paul is right and we are all worldly? He says anyone who like the world will go to hell. Does that mean we are all going to hell...?
I don’t think Paul Washer thinks we are all going to hell. If I remember correctly he loves ice age and nacho libre.
Honestly this is something to pray about because I don’t have a concrete answer, friend I can’t speak for God here. If God truly hates all forms of media and we will go to hell for liking any of it then that is Gods way and we can’t change that. Pray that He gives you the truth so that you can know, that’s the only advice I can give.
Hey Anon…stop basing your life on whatever Paul Washer says. Look to the Bible. The Scriptures are our only infallible rule for faith and life. Basing your ethic and your theology on what a pastor you’ve never met said is contrary the what the Bible teaches. Don’t trust the opinions and traditions of men… trust God.
The bible says that we should not be conformed to the world and it also says that the devil is decieving the whole world in revelation as well. If its in the bible then its true so whatever the world loves we shouldn’t be taking part in that.
The world loves pants, food, breathing, cars, phones, electricity, the internet, etc.
You have a Tumblr… that alone would condemn you, if you were actually trying to be consistent with this idea.
Shrekist: the knight saves the princess but doesn’t slay the dragon (it’s on his to do list), the dragon and the knight’s noble steed fall in love and it’s a metaphor for Disney bad
traditionalist: the knight saves the princess and slays the dragon
feminist: the princess saves herself and slays the dragon, who is a metaphor for toxic masculinity
del toroist: the princess and the dragon fall in love and slay the knight, who is a metaphor for war, bigotry and/or toxic masculinity
Bad Cringe Culture: making fun of people’s innocent OCs, niche subjects, and enjoying foreign animation/entertainment
Good Cringe Culture: Shaming folks for wearing BDSM gear in public, thinking sexualizing animated children is okay, and saying shit like “Hitler did nothing wrong.”
There is a difference. Learn it.
It’s funny seeing all these articles like “Why are women so attracted to dad bods???” like maybe because we’re predisposed to being attracted to healthy bodies and dehydrated abs aren’t healthy??
Also I saw a post complaining about women liking dad bods but only Jason Momoa dad bods and like…….. so?????? If a guy says he likes thicc girls Imma assume he means someone curvaceous and not morbidly obese lmao tf yall on
I’ve always been repulsed by vainy bulging muscles so I’m glad dad bods are becoming more popular
I just,,,,,, want a cuddly muscular but soft bf already man
I don’t want to fall into a man arms and feel like I landed on a boulder. His arms need some fat for the shock absorption.
