Gosh, I’m a little overwhelmed with all the Bible verses I’ve been reading lately, and I can’t help but think of my own Bible study group.
I mean, I get that there are a lot of them.
But I’m not sure I know which ones have the most profound effects on my life.
I’d like to know what Bible verses really are that make my life better, and what Bible verse really do make my lives worse.
I’m hoping that a recent survey of 2,000 Americans will provide some answers.
The survey, conducted by the Pew Research Center, asked respondents whether they agreed or disagreed with statements such as “God hates homosexuality” or “homosexuality is a sin”.
In the survey, the researchers asked respondents to identify the verses that made them feel “unhappy” or felt “depressed”.
“Gay people are less likely to have good jobs,” “The Bible condemns homosexuality”, and “homophobia is wrong”.
It’s interesting to note that the researchers also asked the respondents to say whether they thought that people who identify as gay or lesbian were “a choice” or a “choice”.
The responses revealed that people were more likely to say that people identifying as gay are “a chosen lifestyle” (63%), “a lifestyle choice” (57%), or “a sexual orientation choice” to a greater extent than people who didn’t identify as homosexual (32%).
Overall, only 36% of people who identified as homosexual agreed that they were a “sexual orientation choice”.
Only 12% of the people who did not identify as homosexuals agreed that people identified as gay were “cured”.
“God doesn’t love homosexuals” and “God does not love homosexuality” were also the top three “unhappiness” verses for people who said they had been “unwanted or rejected” by God.
When it comes to feeling “uncomfortable”, people were least likely to feel “depression” (37%), “unaccepted” (29%), or even “disappointed” in their lives (23%).
Of the people surveyed, only 6% agreed that “God did not love homosexuals”.
This suggests that some people, when they read a verse in the Bible that talks about a person’s sexuality, are not necessarily thinking of the person as homosexual, but instead think of the verse as referring to a person as someone who is “unfortunate”.
This might suggest that the verses are not really meant to be about homosexuality in any sense.
But that is certainly not the whole story.
When people read a Biblical verse about homosexuality, they are often also thinking of a person who is not homosexual, and they may feel “incomplete” or even feel “traumatised”.
For example, the Bible describes a man who is an “unkind” to his daughter and wife.
The man is “in the world” (John 3:16), but he does not live a “good life” in the world (Acts 4:18).
It is not as though the Bible was not written by people who are “kind”.
When people were asked to say “who is in the way”, they were often also asked to think of someone who was not in the “way”.
For instance, “who would be in the wrong” or not “in order” was a common response to the question.
When asked whether a person was “in an unhappy relationship”, people answered that they thought of “a married couple in a marriage”.
But when they were asked, “is the man in the right?”, they were more inclined to think that a “married couple” was in the same situation.
And the Bible says a “man in the home” (Deuteronomy 23:17) is “not in the manner of his God”.
If a person does not want to be a “marriage partner”, they may be inclined to feel more resentment towards the person, because they have to make a choice between being in a “happy marriage” or being “in a bad marriage”.
There is a lot more to consider when it comes the effects of the Bible on our lives.
For instance: 1) When people have questions about the meaning of the words in the Book of Mormon, it can sometimes be helpful to consider whether the words refer to their own relationship or a person or situation outside of their relationship or situation.
2) The Book of Abraham has many different meanings, but it’s generally agreed that it is the story of the Book from Abraham to Isaac.
3) The Bible has many other meanings that don’t necessarily relate to our personal lives, such as the story in Genesis about how Noah was able to eat fish in the ark.
The Book, however, is often referred to as the book of life.
