According to Samael Aun Weor, as with everything that one is born with, such as one’s psychology, family, physical body, geographical location and so on, homosexuality is the outcome of karma. Homosexuality is said to be a modification of one’s nervous system due to karma related to the misuse of sexual energy in a previous life. Thus according to this notion, the fact that more people are being born as homosexuals is a sign of society’s furthering sexual degeneration. Samael Aun Weor does not deny that homosexuals have a modified nervous system and authentically desire the same sex, but states that because homosexuals cannot create, not even physically, that they also cannot create spiritually, and for this reason they have degenerated, or literally "lost the ability to generate." Likewise, Samael Aun Weor calls homosexuals "rotten seeds" in his work Yes there is Hell, a Devil, and Karma because unlike heterosexuals they do not have the ability to create the Solar Bodies. This does not damn the soul-essence of a homosexual, as it is implied that if a homosexual works on him or herself and deeply yearns to change, after death he or she may acquire a heterosexual body to use in the next reincarnation, but it is also stated that this is something very rare.

This is because Jesus came to speak only to those people. His words are built and molded around the understanding of the people from that time. If you go shoving his words and understandings on other cultures, they are not going to make the same kind of sense. It's pretty much like trying to speak to someone in another language.
The message was the message to that flock. He even talks about having other flocks to attend to. Different culture, different messenger, different reasons and ways of understanding, but the same basic truth under it all.
Paul tries to become father of the gentiles, and pretty much puts on somekind of adoption type deal. He has a totally different message for the gentiles.
O! say can you see by the dawn's early light
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming.
Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight,
O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming.
And the rockets' red glare, the bombs bursting in air,
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.
O! say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen through the mists of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam,
In full glory reflected now shines in the stream:
'Tis the star-spangled banner! Oh long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion,
A home and a country should leave us no more!
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave:
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved home and the war's desolation!
Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: 'In God is our trust.'
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave

I kindly disagree....the Orthodox only claimed Jesus came for the Jews....but I believe he didnt come for anyone particular, but brought a global message of for us to learn unity, oneness, and see through him the faith of living for the real life, which is not the life of flesh. I believe that the fact that Yahweh says he was lord of Israel is a RED FLAG....why would a god of divine essence have a chosen people. But then we read Yahweh received Israel as an inheritance from El....could this be showing us that Yahweh was only a son of god, a ruler with inheritance...and not the Most High Infinite Creator.
I dont think he came for one people....but since those people are the ones that clung to the prophecies, and needed that blood sacrafice....even though they rejected jesus as a teacher....the Romans or Elite still felt that Jesus had to be tied to the OT God....rather then be exalted as a teacher that came to enlighten all and show all that we have everything we need laying right within.
I think its false Jesus came as the final sacrifice for the book sacrifices that the Jews were ordered to do by the OT.
I think the Divine One, begetter of all life.....never needing us to make blood sacrifices....to me, that makes god a very primal entity with needs....that involves man killing man to bring out this corrupt divine plan.
Im in the mood to ramble tonight so forgive if Im only repeating many things Ive said before. I just find it so important that we are mislead that Jesus came to fulfill these OT prophecies. He was a great teacher. The highest vibration of a human embodiment, thus, he was able to reach a place and open a new womb in the heavens, being the first fruit of the human species to excel through death, remaining righteous.
A great teacher of our kind got tied to a book that makes him seem like he came to be the final sacrifice and then claims he will come back with a force and swipe the Earth of the wrong doers. I just cant accept a God that gives up one day and says to those you haven't learned yet....well too bad, your time is up now.
WOuldnt it make more sense that God makes a way for all, he is divine, he is all powerful, we are here to learn something....
I really struggle with Jesus being tied to the god in the OT. Deeply I struggle with this and fear many will have to come back here to relearn the nature and what divine means. Not saying that you dont....but that OT has never sat right with my spirit.
Badmedia...do you think we are a fallen race? Do you think we are here because someone did something wrong and now we pay the price...or could it be, everything was meant to be this way and the fallen idea is the comfort for those to explain the evils in the world...

This is what stood out most for me as a child....
"Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"
Meaning that no one is perfect so we should not persecute other people for their mistakes but rather look at our own and better ourselves.
"The way you judge others, that is the way you will be judged. How much you give to others is how much will be given to you."
I interpret it as being similar to karma. What goes around comes around. So it is important to be good to others and help people where you can rather than judging them.
