As Sister Joanna duly noted, this is not an original piece of work but some shameless copy pasta, nonetheless, there are a couple of points I'd like to address:

That sentence requires acknowledgement that the Bible is the infallible Word of God. Otherwise, you could have picked up any other book - let's say, one of Terry Pratchett's flat disc series - and have it speak directly to you. (Here and thereafter, by "you" I mean "the original writer of this text.")

Quote:
Through Gods kind teachings
Another acknowledgement that the Bible is the Word of God. So far, so good.

Quote:
Jesus, a first-century Jewish theologian,
And here we have the first fallacy. You have admitted that the Bible is the Word of God. Where does it say in the Bible that Jesus was a theologian? Nowhere. What does the Bible - the Infallible Word of God as you have acknowledged - say about Jesus? That He is Son of God and in fact God Himself. How can God Himself be wrong about anything?

Checkmate, hellbound heretic!

Quote:
there are times in the gospels when Jesus admits to not knowing something. For example, when a person snatches his robe in the hopes of receiving a miracle, he asks his disciples who did that.
That's not admitting not knowing something - that's just giving the person the chance to come forward and repent for being a nuisance.

Quote:
But what about the story where God creates the entire universe in six 24-hour periods?
Well, what about it?

Quote:
What about all of the laws described in the Torah, like the one that forbids wearing different fabrics together, or planting different kinds of seeds in the same field? What about that law that demands rebellious children be stoned to death? Or to sell all you own and donate the money to the poor? Surely you dont believe that too.
Other churches cherry-pick the Bible and follow just what suits them. We proudly follow 100% of it, including the bits that require to break babies' heads on rocks!

Quote:
Were Jesus to befriend gay couples committed to each other in love and fidelity, I find it tough to believe he would reject their relationships on the grounds that all same-sex love is necessarily abominable.
And you think that God didn't take 21st century morals under account when He dictated the Bible? How can the Bible speak to you directly, then, if it was written by and for Bronze Age homophobic goat herders?
