Discussion questions for your Bible study group, vol. 2

Wednesday, 13 August 2003

1. Do you feel bad when you disobey God? Why or why not?

2. The Bible says, “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” (Leviticus 20:13) Do you know anyone who is gay? Do you think they are detestable? Do you think they should die?

3. The New Testament says, “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 recompense of their error which was meet. … Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death… (Romans 2:27-32) Do you still think gays are worthy of death? Would you forgive them? Should Jesus?

4. If Jesus was really a man, why didn’t he carry the burden of original sin?

5. Deuteronomy 22:28-29: “If a man find a damsel that is a virgin, which is not betrothed, and lay hold on her, and lie with her, and they be found; then the man that lay with her shall give unto the damsel’s father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall be his wife; because he hath humbled her, he may not put her away all his days.” For the girls: Do you feel humbled after being raped? For the guys: Do you think marriage is too severe a punishment for rape?

6. When the Bible suggests, “You must kill those who worship another god,” (Exodus 22:20), do you have more sympathy for Islamic extremists and their tactics?
