And my God is Humanity...It's real and everyone on earth can relate to it, Humanity is wonderful we even invent other Gods to try and explain why we are here.

If Humanity had a hell and heaven the Hell would be Man made Religion and the heaven would be our free will..!!!!

Heh. This debate always reminds me of this....

"I just ran over your dogma with my karma."


Seriously though, can't we all just get along? Whatever god or belief system you prescribe to made everybody else too. So maybe we could all stop bickering over who's god has the bigger wang (or whatever
), and focus on something important, instead of arguing about things we can't confirm.

Btw, kudos on the humanity thing...I like that.

It wasn't just homosexuality.

Homosexuality was one of the many, many, many atrocities of Sodom.

Amongst the other atrocities - Demon/Satan/false god worship. Straight out atheism and disbelief in God Almighty. Out of control crime, brutality, etc (basically how America is becoming). Tons of other sexually immoral things besides homosexuality (rampant adultery, rampant premarital sex, etc etc).

Basically, look at what America and the world are turning into, and multiply it by 5 to get how Sodom was. Wouldn't you be angry and destroy them too if you were God?


But the Bible says nothing about Sodom being destroyed over homosexuality or atheism, premarital sex, or most of what you said. Ezekiel 16:49 states that Sodom was destroyed because of callousness toward the poor. The verse is plan.

Come to think of it, if there is a judgement on America it might well be for the same thing, namely our callousness toward the poor predominantly displayed by Republican politicians?

That post wasn't directed at anyone in particular, more of a generalization. Except for the edit I made, I agree with you on the humanity thing, though I do believe in a higher power, don't have a particular label for it though.

As in all religon seek within and you will find. Listening to spiritual advice from somebody that is caught up in duality (I am right (and my group) and all other groups are wrong) is counterproductive. I find nuggets of wisedom in all religon and people wake up and connect to something from all over the world and all religons (even ateists). So it seems that whatever the higher power is do not care what path you take to it as long as you arrive. Since I am still figuring out my own path I should not tell others how to evolve.

True symbiotic love is always right not matter what any book/preacher say. Logic tells it and we where given a brain for some reason to be able to figure out right and wrong. (Symbiotic behavior and ego parasitic behaviour from my point of view)

I belive Sodom was destroyed due to ego parasitic behaviour.

The test is probably if you do what is right or what you are told is right, even if logic say the scripture(what you are told) is wrong. I will not be one with bullies not matter what bullies here say is right. The bullies have to change their behaviour and when they have learned the lesson then I do not care what they have done before.

Imagine there's no heaven, it's easy if you try
No people below us, above it's only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries, it isn't hard to do
No need to kill or die for and no religions too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Not homophobic!

What happened to your thoughts on Homosexuality as an atrocity?

That sounds like the kind of words racists use when they say they are not as they have lots of black friends who i lend help to

Homosexuality is a sin just like every other sin. It should be avoided at all cost, but we are all susceptible to it.

We are to ask forgiveness for these sins and repent of them....I currently have a girl at my house who is both a lesbian and an atheist, and I love her and talk to her about God, same with my other friends who I try to help and have an influence on.

Homosexuality was one of MANY, as I said, atrocities committed in Sodom. By atrocities I mean rampant, uncontrolled sin and evil.

Nope. Hate to break it to homosexual Christians, but according to their beliefs, Homosexuality will not earn them a place.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."

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."

Leviticus 18:22 "Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin."

Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

According to the Bible, homosexuality is unnatural and detestable.


Sidenote: I am not a Christian. I believe in -one- God, through and through. I'm just merely quoting the various scriptures of Christianity.

Sodom's sexuality was exploitation, both hetero and homosexual it did not matter. They were probably like the fanatics of the Catholic Church and the Islamic world (along with Protestant and Orthodox Jewish extremist sects), deeply anti-gay but also deeply enmeshed in homosexual exploitation. I doubt that Sodom was gay in the sense that we understand the term today.


Homosexuality within the bible is clearly defined as a sexual immorality. There are many more versions of sexual perversion than just that. Sexual immorality is not confined soley to homosexuality. Here's a rundown of sexual immoralities just in case you want to know the details.

1. homosexuality
2. sodomy (no matter if done by heteros or homos)
3.oral sex
4. prostitution
5. adultery
6.orgies
7. wife swapping (or swinging)
8.masturbation
9. doggy
10 Beastiality


Literally anything that was done for the purpose of sexual self gratification instead of the sole purpose to procreate and multiply.

So you can see, literally everyone on the planet suffers from one form of sexual immorality or another. More in today's world than ever before in history.

The Nicolaitians practiced literally every one of those and Jesus hates the Nicolaitians, so perhaps that should give you some clue as to where you fit on his list.

Technically Leviticus is judaism from the old testament, christians just hang onto it because it is part of our jewish roots and heritage.

Your "god" doesnt exist. My God is God.

We are both atheists, then. I just believe in one less god than you do. And as soon as you can explain why you dismiss the thousands of other gods people choose to worship (and have chosen to worship throughout time), you'll understand why I dismiss yours.

That may be so, but regardless, Christianity as a religion is undoubtedly against Homosexuality. All 3 Abrahamic religions are, as a matter of fact.

To any Homosexual Christians reading this

Disregard what XXforgotten says, he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Look at what me and lonewolf have said. We are ALL guilty of sexual immorality. Confess your sexual immorality to the Almighty, and you will be straight with Him.

Really. Ignorance at its finest. I applaud you. Telling Christians to disregard the very scripture they follow. You're intelligent.

I'm citing my sources and giving the Christians their answer. You're the individual who doesn't know what he's talking about.
