It is natrual for some one to be homesexual,but homosexual sex is not acceptable

People cant controll their feelings but can controll their actions

All people are made in the image of God

Sex should be about openness to having children as well as intimacy(closeness)

The roles of woman and men in the church

"should men and woman have the same role doing christain stuff in the church"

Yes,because men adn woman are equal so they should have the right to do both men or woman roles in the church,woman was made to help men.

No,because people believe that a woman cant do a mans job.woman and men have a different nature and charaistic.Jeus had male diciplese in the bible we only have men doing that job.

In The bible woman were in charge of the church first.

What the bible says; MEN AND WOMAN ARE DIFFERENT

Woman should remain silent in the churches.If they want to ask about something.they should ask their husbands at home

I do not allow a woman to teach man

Its not good for a man to be alone.I will make a helper to suit him.

Jesus' Diciples were all male

What the bible says:MEN AND WOMAN ARE THE SAME

The bible sows us that woman in charge of the first churches

Mary was the first to know about Jesus' resscurection,this tells us that woman are accually important.
