Also why is it that God always uses the man and the woman as figure examples? like adam and eve, and also referring himself as the Husband of his wife, the church...and not using same sex figures instead?
I would really appreciate any clarification....
Could you move this post to another thread? This thread is for talking about gay affirming texts in Galatians. This Romans passage has been treated over and over and over again. Try using the "search" function to find some of the older discussions. They will be VERY helpful to you. Also, the pamphlet in the resources section entitled "What the Bible Really says about Homosexuality" has a nice section on the Romans passage.
