I have read some articles and heard some messages where connections like that are forced. Speakers and writers have redefined words in order to force the connection. In doing that they are forcing the Bible to say what they want it to say. It is a much better course of action to allow the Bible to say what it says and let it change you.
There was a example of a good approach when you want to make a connection in a – not sure what to call Google+ or Twitter “friends” so I will go with – acquaintance, +Ron Edmondson's blog yesterday. As you read that post you will see that he offered his thoughts tentatively, with questions rather than declarations. That is a great example of how to approach issues about which you are not sure.
Not to follow +Ron's example is to force the Scripture to say what one wants it to say. Unfortunately that has been done quite a bit in the Church. If you are reading or listening to what is being said about the Bible’s position on homosexuals, you will see many examples of people attempting to force the Scripture to validate their position. That practice leads to the perversion of the text which culminates at best in heresy and at worst blasphemy.
