Re: Am I a sinner?
Lovable Resin Title of thread “Am I a sinner?”
LR, since you have stated that you are of the Christian faith I will give you the Christian faith scriptures below. I am giving you three versions; The NIV was formulated over many years by the theologians through out the whole world. The New Living is by the modern theologians and the King James is the oldest English Bible that was mass produced
New International Version (NIV)
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Romans 1 (New Living Translation)
26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.
Romans 1 (King James Version)
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
LR, you can read for yourself the above verses and in the end you will be the one that will determine if your activity with your SIL is a sin or not.
If you are like many Christians the Bible has more authority than other authorities on the issue of sin. “Am I a sinner” is the title of your thread and since your are a Christian I would think that those that are trying to reduce the importance of the Bible or your Christian faith would have respect for your chosen faith.
LR, your Christian Bible has a lot more scriptures on redemption and forgiveness than women to women sex. In fact the Bible‘s main theme is reconciliation back to God because we are all sinners. There is a ton of hope for your situation in your Christian faith!
