... people will not feel comfortable with the help from some professionals. Some professionals made make a client or clients feel made about their selves. I feel a little tension between professional values and ethics and your own personal beliefs. I believe I would forget about the religion thing and start talking about the Lord. I am around my dad a lot and he always put God in the conversation when he is talking to someone. I feel like I would get carried away and put God in the conversation as well. My clients might not believe in God or believe the same thing as I do. I believe God allows everything to happen for a reason. Most likely I would ask the client do he or she feel like God allow this to happen so they become closer to him. Once I starts talking sometime it is hard for me to close my mouth. I do not feel any other tension between the two other than that.

- Introduction Perhaps you’ve heard these before. “I can’t trust a book that commands stoning people for trivial offenses.” “Homosexual activity is a sin. Well so is eating shellfish and mixing fabrics!” As these statements and others like them indicate, it is common for non-Christians and Christians alike to not understand the relationship between Old Testament law and the Christian life that is built on Christ. It is important to have an answer to give to the honest seeker, confused Christian, or hostile skeptic.... [tags: christians, gospel message]

- Everybody’s morals and views on life are different. Most people’s morals and views are based on their religion. One of the main reasons the people opposing homosexual marriage give is “It offends God”. First off, this is America. Just shoving it in someone’s face that homosexual marriage is ‘wrong’ because it offends God, is wrong. You have to take in consideration that those people’s beliefs may be different of your own. In the Bible it says in Matthew 7:1-2 (the words of Jesus), “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.... [tags: religion, God, sin, abomination]

- “Being gay is much more profound than simply a sexual relationship; being gay is part of that person’s core identity, and goes right to the very center of his being. It’s like being black in s society of whites, or a blonde European in a nation of black Asians” (Tamara L. Roleff). Although marriage, cohabitation and parenting styles of homosexual families pose no threats to the heterosexual society; many still believe same-sex marriage goes against its true purpose. “At the national level, American public opinion on the issue remains split (44 percent support legalizing same-sex marriage; 53 percent oppose same-sex marriage in a May 2010 Gallup Poll) even as opposition toward legalizing same...

- The word Homosexual has been used for a very long time but during the 1970’s and 1980’s, the word emerged rapidly. The virus HIV spread rapidly through America and everybody blamed the spread on the Homsexuals which caused the word to explode. People either use the word in the right context or abuse the word as a hateful slur towards someone. Everyone looked at Homosexuals as a disgrace because of everyone thought that AIDS was spread through Homosexual actions between two men or two women. Homosexual is a powerful word during those times because Homosexual people were looked down upon and didn’t have equal rights as a straight person and that the word was also changing and evolving into som...

- Why is homosexuality mentioned so many times in the Bible as a sin. In the book Torn, Lee tries to find an answer in the Bible for why he is gay. Although Lee grapples with scriptures in Chapter 12 and tries to discern the meaning of the verses in light of the context, he is disappointed that the answers he was looking for were not there. Through these scriptures we can discern that the act of gay sex is a sin, homosexuality is no different from any other sin, and because every person on earth is a sinner, we should unconditionally love these people....

- Homosexuality (the tendency to be more sexually attracted to the same sex) is often confused with homosexual behavior (acting on homosexuality by engaging in homosexual acts), but the two are distinctly different. Even though homosexual behavior, especially in more recent years, has become an acceptable standard in our society it is a voluntary act and a sin, but the church has the ongoing responsibility and God-given call to love our neighbors, regardless of their sin because we too are all sinners....

- Homosexuality as a Sin The topic of homosexuality in religion has many sides. There are those who believe that it is a sin in God’s eyes and according to the Bible, and there are those who believe the God and the Bible are not specific to homosexuals. It is a tough debate based on whether you are a religious person, how you were raised, and where your morals and ethics stand. You cannot truly believe one way without taking into account the other side and have valid proof to back it up. Those who believe that homosexuality is wrong do so by quoting certain phrases from the Bible.... [tags: Papers Religion Gay Lesbian Essays]

- Beginning in the early 1900s, the homosexual community was constantly stigmatized. It was considered a filthy sin, mentally dysfunctional behavior, or a temporary phase to name a few. When parents and societal figures found out that someone was gay or lesbian, they were exiled and forced to lead a refugee lifestyle. Though the deeply cutting words used against the LGBTQ community were overwhelmingly harsh and inhumane, communities and advocacy groups emerged to help those to cope, letting them know that they were never alone, and they always had someone to count on....

- We Must Teach the Homosexual About Christ All sins are forgivable and we are all sinners, but sin has to be recognized for what it is if divine mercy is to be had. So much of the talk about homosexuality is an understandable human effort to change the subject. Any reference to the wrongness of homosexuality is likely to invite the charge of homophobia, turning the accusation on the supposed accuser. But of course the moral law is not the property of anyone, and invoking it need not be an accusation.... [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Topics]

- The essay by Peter J. Gomes, entitled �Homophobic. Read Your Bible,� can be analyzed in many ways. The essay discusses the issue of homosexuality as it relates to religion. The Baptist minister provides an unexpected approach to the subject. Mr. Gomes�s thesis statement in this essay is, �The army of the discontented, eager for clear villains and simple solutions and ready for a crusade in which political self-interest and social anxiety can be cloaked in morality, has found hatred of homosexuality to be the last respectable prejudice of the century� (�Homophobic� 414)....
