quote:I agree. Where did you get this information and what Roman period are you referring to? 
Well, that and the fact that actual Romans regarded eunuched slaves as a marker of eastern decadence and not something a virtuous Roman would encourage. I think we're in  territory.
Is there evidence that it pertained to when Paul wrote the coined words in question? 
What is more nobody actually KNOWS what the word Paul used only twice, with no other scriptural occurrence, definitely MEANS. So to apply it specifically to 'homosexuals' as if the meaning is patently self explanatory is a bit dishonest isn't it? Infallibility of scripture does not extend to sloppy translation of words of uncertain meaning, surely?
Love covers many sins. 1 Pet.4:8. God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, not holding their sins against them; 2 Cor.5:19
