Alright, if you believe in the Bible you believe God designed humans as male and female and only male and female should get it on because that's
God's plan and that's what he ordered. It really is that simple, but to add a little.
Homosexuality being bad isn't from the Christian religion. It's a hold over from the Old Testament (a different religion) by the way, but it's
still held over.
The Jews were slaves in Egypt and were taken out of Egypt and God made a covenant with them. The same as with Abraham and Noah and so on. He wanted to
make them his "Holy" people. To do that they had to follow all these rules. They had to live by a "higher" standard then they "USED" to. In
other words, they used to do this stuff all the time, but now they can't anymore.
The LORD said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘I am the LORD your God. You must not do as they do in Egypt, where you used to
The purpose of these laws were that God's holy people would be different than everybody else. They had to live a higher standard of living to appear
holy to other cultures. Also, sometimes the laws in the Bible don't even have a logical reason. Sometimes they're simply to set you apart from the
other cultures. Like, one is you can't trim or shave unless you follow certain rules or get tattoos. Why? Just because that's what the Pagans did.
No other reason than that.
Homosexuality may have been looked down upon by other cultures. Don't believe me? What would most people think of a homosexual priest? It'd be a
late night news scandal right? Exactly what God was trying to avoid. Too bad the priests don't understand this. It's hard to get converts when you
have a sex scandal in the papers. Okay and I don't hate homosexuals because I'm not supposed to judge, but the priests signed up for the job and
volunteered you know? But okay I'm judging now so let's move along.
Anyway, the reward in the OT for people that followed God's law is that their family line would multiply like "sand on the beach" and they would be
given the holy land.
To be a homosexual would mean it was totally pointless. You'd be doing all that work for nothing because you could never reap your reward of having
crap loads of children. Since it's a reward from God that would be a pretty big deal if you rejected it.
More importantly, you wouldn't be creating more people that worshiped God. Fruitful and multiply right? Another reason why sex must always be for the
purpose of procreation and not just a good ol time. So there'd be more of them when war time came to take the land that God had promised them.
And most importantly, it's because God told them NOT TO DO IT. Which if you read the OT you will see that's a big deal. And yes that may make you
think religion is retarded, but I'm not going to lie about how it works.
But then when Christianity came along it's basically a new religion built on the old one that stills believes God created man and women to be
together and that's the way it should be because if you're a Christian you're not to go against God's word or design.
So, even in the OT where men had multiple wives, Jesus said, no no. It's meant to be ONE man and ONE women, but they would not listen in Moses's
time. That's what Jesus said. He also said that if you have sex you MUST be married.
Homosexuality is a sin in the Christian religion because you're not married and God doesn't recognize homosexual marriages because that's not the
way he intended it to be so they can never be married in God's eyes.
Let it be known that I'm not saying it isn't natural. Some people are confused by this. God's plan and nature -- two different things.
Homosexuality is completely natural, but not part of God's plan for his holy people.
You see, in the Bible the women is the man's other half or missing piece. You know, the rib and all? Putting two men together or two women together
wouldn't exactly fix the problem. This is why they believe that.
EDIT: This is what the philosophy is based on at heart, but yet it's infinitely more complicated and layered over than that.
But what a lot of people don't realize is that, if you can hack it, the ultimate goal is actually to be celibate. After all, don't need more
worshipers for fighting the war now that the war is over right?
But that's right, Jesus would prefer it if you didn't have sex AT ALL and dedicated your life to him. Only for the ones that can't handle having no
sex, which is most everyone including myself, does Jesus tell to get married.
Okay, but don't think I'm trying to convert you. You can choose to believe it or not. I'm just explaining what the book says when you read it and
how many interpret it. If that's true or not or if you agree with it, is of course up to you.
