How come all this then?:
New Testament: Romans 1:26-27 (Both lesbian and homosexual activities are condemned in these verses and shown as a further result of turning away
from God. God only approves of monogamous, heterosexual relationships in marriage, condemning fornication and adultery before marriage and within
marriage.); 1 Corinthians 6:9; 1 Timothy 1:10; and see also Jude 7.
It is quite clear, both in Torah and in the New Covenant. It could not be any clearer than is spelled out.
You are trying to make Christ, Christianity and Torah Judaism LIBERAL. They are not even slightly liberal. You should be careful because we are warned
not to pervert the Word in any degree. There are consequences. It is supernaturally protected. God would rather you have sex with another guy or girl
than pollute the Word, just to make a point about making things up to suit yourself because you don't like what is written. If that is the case then
there are plenty other religions that will let you be as gay as you like; Paganism and Satanism, for example.
There is nothing new under the Sun. Here is you thinking you are unique in your profound new understanding and making EXACTLY the same errors as the
Greek Christian GNOSTICS did two thousand years ago as they wanted their cake and to eat it, too, but they could not and neither can you or I. The
Angel, through John, condemns them in Revelation.
When I was younger I slept with a few guys. I don't try to make Christ a liberal because of it though. I own my actions. I must say this messes me up
a lot. It is the hardest part of Judaism and Christianity for me as I really HATE having to say anything about what choices people make.
Personally, I would befriend any gay person, male, female or transgender. I would never judge anybody on that score. However, what is written is
written. I would be too scared, personally, to # with THE WORD and that is why I stay truthful even when I don't like what I am being told.
This world and morality is not all nice and cosy with rampant free will and zero consequences of actions. If you do not know it already, be sure you
shall find out during your life. WE ALL HAVE TO, rich and poor, gay and straight.
What is written is what is, not what you want it to be, nor what I want it to be.
