You keep repeating this but it is a fact that there are different bibles using different manuscripts and have different books in them. There are over 40,000 denominations with a wide swath of differing and conflicting beliefs. If there was a standard you would not see this. The standard you claim exists only exists in your mind.MuffMaYne wrote: [Replying to post 96 by DanieltheDragon]
OF course theres only one standard and its the one thats written down. Thats all thats required to prove theres no my or your standard. Now how you would prove that you could read the Bible and come to the conclusion that same sex marriage is okay? idk. You've yet to provide anything because there is nothing. The Bible makes it clear what marriage is and its between a man and a woman, so even if a person was "born this way" at the very least they'd be guilty of out of marriage sex.
As I pointed out earlier the verse you and King and priest say is the standard for marriage is ambiguous at best and refers to divorce. It doesn't say all men will leave their father and mothers it says a man. The context here being the question asked of Jesus
"Is it lawful for a man to leave his wife"
Jesus was not asked to comment on gay or plural marriage. He was asked about one wife and one husband. He answered in kind. It does not prohibit gay marriage talk about gay marriage or reference gay marriage in anyway. More to the point it does not mandate anything. It simply exists as an observation about what it means to be married.
Find me a verse that prohibits gay marriage or plural marriage.
