This is because they believe that God created every person the same and we should keep it that way, no matter what crime they have committed, otherwise we could be seen as disobeying God’s wishes. Some Christians may disagree with this quote as they may believe that if someone has not treated society in the correct way they should be treated differently to everyone else. ‘Do unto others as you would have them do to you.’ (Luke- New Testament) This means that you should treat everyone else as you would like to be treated. Therefore some Christians may say that because most criminals have not treated others well they have not followed the Bible and gone against God, meaning they should not be treated the same as everyone else. Other Christians, like Quakers, may agree with this quote as they believe that everyone has equal rights and no one is the leader, this is because God created everyone the same.

These are the questions I hope to answer. I could simply answer these questions by saying that some people are just ignorant. But I believe that nearly all Christians who dislike gays believe that they have a very strong basis for feeling the way they do. One of the first reasons that these people will give is that the Bible says homosexuality is a sin. The Bible gets the blame for a lot of things but especially for outright rejection of homosexuals.

Dr. Crabb suggests that our reaction to difficult life experiences take one of three forms: guilt, resentment, or anxiety (Crabb, 1977). I would have to agree. Most non-believers believe that their life misfortunes are a result of something they did and therefore, take on the guilt and resentment, which in turn causes anxiety and initiates the need for counseling from secular counselors. Dr. Crabb doesn’t totally disregard secular counseling, in fact he suggest that Christian counselors should evaluate the world’s counseling model against biblical principles and doctrine. Dr. Hawkins model of counseling is centered on five circles that show self and everything that shapes us into who we are.
DB Forum Module 4 The Gospel Message 1. In our culture the gospel message is often perceived as just another path that leads to God. People often reject the gospel message because they feel like it does not include everyone.

Legalising and allowing euthanasia to happen weakens society’s respect of this sanctity. Religions like Christianity, Islam, etc are against euthanasia because religion teaches people that the death of every individual should be decided by God, that God chooses how long and how a person should live. Suffering is only but a part of life and living. If euthanasia is accepted, it means that the lives of the sick and disabled are worth less than others. Furthermore, euthanasia is unnecessary in the presence of palliated care.
