Lev. 18:22, "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."1




What if...the human being that wrote that just didn't like the idea of two guys going at it?

Did you read the entire chapter or just search for a passge that condems an act? Can i assume you got this from a website as well?

The people paul was talking about were not homosexual... they gave in to their lusts

24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves

You don't seem to understand that people are born homosexual... i know this for a fact... i grew up with someone who was gay from the time he knew the difference between male and female... and even before that point he was still different from the rest of the guys.

Being gay is natural, it occurs in nature as well as in man kind... when one gives in to lusts that person defies what is natural... true homosexuals are naturally attracted to the same sex... and im afraid you can't post anything from the bible that can "undo" that fact...

The best part is you don't even have to believe it... its true regardless of your belief.

And just so you know... paul does not speak for Jesus... And Jesus did not condem being gay... anywhere.

Btw, theres no hate in my posts... im just clairifying some things that need to be said... but i admit, the christian attitude towards gay people completely disgusts me...

And leviticus isn't Jesus speaking... so who cares

Could any one of you "christians" that argue against being gay show me where your lord said homosexuality is not allowed?


Keeping his commands is all throughout the old and new testaments. The fact that you do not know this brings shame onto you. Both books verify eachother.

John 8:54-59

54Jesus answered, If I honour myself, my honour is nothing: it is my Father that honoureth me; of whom ye say, that he is your God:
55Yet ye have not known him; but I know him: and if I should say, I know him not, I shall be a liar like unto you: but I know him, and keep his saying.
56Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.
57Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham?
58Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.
59Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Who is God? Riiight, now you get it. Jesus is.

Leviticus 20:13

"'If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

It's pretty simple what the Ancient of Days commands, its written all throughout his words.

Mattew 5:17-20

17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Not one word, not one little piece of puncuation shall pass away until this heaven and earth pass away. Stand then and be judged if you teach men to break his laws and decieve them.

Im sure we've already covered the FACT that you can not shame me...


His commands...

35Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38This is the first and great commandment.

39And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.


And this is NOT shown thoughout the OT... quite the opposite actually.....


Who is God? Riiight, now you get it. Jesus is.


Incorrect...



"'If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

It's pretty simple what the Ancient of Days commands, its written all throughout his words.


Those are not his words...

heres some more from that book...

A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death.


17Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.



Correct!!

And his commands still stand to this day....

Except your righteousness exceed the scibes and pharisees.... who obey the person that wrote that passage from leviticus... You shall in no case enter heaven....

Good thing for you we all get in... but when you face your creator and say "i hated a part of your creation"...

what will you say?


Like i said... good luck bro!




Not one word, not one little piece of puncuation shall pass away until this heaven and earth pass away. Stand then and be judged if you teach men to break his laws and decieve them



Not one word eh....

If even then you remain hostile toward me and refuse to obey, I will inflict you with seven more disasters for your sins. I will release wild animals that will kill your children and destroy your cattle, so your numbers will dwindle and your roads will be deserted. (Leviticus 26:21-22 NLT)

A man or a woman who acts as a medium or fortuneteller shall be put to death by stoning; they have no one but themselves to blame for their death. (Leviticus 20:27 NAB)

2) All who curse their father or mother must be put to death. They are guilty of a capital offense. (Leviticus 20:9 NLT)

A priest's daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus 21:9 NAB)


Thats not the Jesus i know my friend...

You must be talkin about this guy...

Regardless of what weather we agree on the passage we both agree the way most Christians treat most people is disgusting. I do believe that some homosexuals believe that they were born gay. In this case even though i may still see it as wrong I do believe they are not guilty of willful sin. Since only God knows the heart of a man only God can judge.

The fact is we are all sinners and all fall short. The most important command is not do not sin. The most important command is love your neighbor as yourself. Sometimes people get so caught up in saving the world they nullify the word of God.

The homosexual is your neighbor you can disagree with there life choice and still love them. I have had several gay friends and i am always honest with them. I am not afraid to tell anyone I don't understand nor do I agree with them. But this does not keep me from being their friends. I have found that they appreciate my love and honesty.

Theres nothing wrong with disagreeing with someone...

Unfortunatly... simply disagreeing is not what most "religious advocates" do...

God is the judge, we should only treat our neighbor as our-self. Remember the plank in your eye?

If we leave Christianity out of the equation for just a moment, I think that we can all agree that the only person to know what it is truly like to be a homosexual is a homosexual. Therefore everyone who has an opinion on the matter that is not gay is not speaking with any experience whatsoever. We can all argue the hows and whys a person is attracted to the same sex, but unless you live it yourself you will never really know why for real.

Yes, the bible does state very strongly and very negatively on the matter. But if as a Christian you have nothing better to do in your faith than bemoan the downfall of society and blame it on homosexuality then you need a reality check. Last time I went to church homosexuals were not ransacking the altar or causing great disturbances. In fact last time I did anything worthy of note homosexuals were not even an issue. So why all the fuss and noise and hatred towards them?

Gay people are a fact of life, and they cant simply be wished, prayed, legislated or hated away. The mere fact that the story of Sodom and Gomorrah is in the very first book of the bible suggests in itself that homosexuality has been around since the dawn of man himself. It also suggests that despite the fact that God destroyed the two towns and subsequently drowned the world's entire population bar Noah and his family through the great flood that he has not been able to stamp it out, or any of the other vices that man has either for that matter.

So hows about as Christians we all look toward the positive things we can do for humanity like helping the poor, loving the lonely, and helping the sick and dying.

Who said i was being hostile to you? I was telling you as it is, if you don't like it tough sh*t because i'm not in the habit of lying to people or sugar coating it. Do not go accusing me of hating, you do not even know me so don't go spout things you know nothing about or you make yourself look dumb.

Nice post.

I really wonder though, why god cares what people get up to in bed?


It has nothing to do with God my friend.

The fear of homosexuality is the fear of Men loving each other intimately. If men learned to love each other intimately, well they may just refuse to kill each other.

So, we don't want to see it. We have been conditioned to reject it. It is weakness and will lead to the demise of the tribe.

One thing I found interesting while touring the middle east was the intimacy of Muslim men.

Young men hold the hands of the elders as they walk the streets. They kiss each other when they meet. It has nothing to do with sex, but rather intimate affection. It is a foreign concept in the west.

Men cannot see how programmed against love they are.

Now that they are expected to be loving, they do not know how.

And if they take that chance, will the tribe survive?

With Love,

Your Brother

I agree that affection is a form of love, and I understand men showing each other affection through hugs, or kisses on both cheeks as they do in some cultures.

Sodomy is not a form of affection though.. it is a form of lust and wanting carnal pleasure form the body..in way God did not intend those bodily parts to find pleasure in.

There is a huge difference in aman showing affection through love, and a man showing lust for carnal pleasures.

By the way IAMIAM..many gays practice sadism and masochism, which is not based on affection at all but a perverse form of torture for pleasure. This is a true abomination to Gods love....and made worse when children are used in it.I realize it is just not gays who practice this.. but it is definitely in the circles of the gay communities.

There are also many practicing Gays who love the hunt and the kill of other humans ..that look for that "rush" they feel when hunting other humans to kill and being hunted.. ..so your argument of if men were allowed to love each other there would be less killing is totally invalid, because the fact is there are men out there who practice a homosexual lifestyle , that are very cruel, and quite enjoy killing others.

Masochism is in the circles of the gay community?? Where did you find this tosh from? I am pretty sure if you did a survey and people gave honest answers, you would find heterosexual couples engage in these kinds of activities just as often as homosexual couples. Sex is sex. People like it!

Gay men love to hunt and kill?? Is this literally or metaphorically? I am hoping it is metaphorically...

I love my mate, a woman, with every ounce of my being, just as I do anyone else. I treat her with every ounce of respect and adoration due even the creator.

But, when the lights are down low and we are in our secret place, it is no ones damn business what we do.

OR

With WHO.

Or with what for that matter...

OR how...

Damn, now you have my mind wondering on the flesh....

It perishes you know. Better get the best use out of it while you can.

This is a once in a lifetime trip!



With Love,

Your Brother
