This is what some people here are saying "Don't blame me that Homosexuality is wrong blame my God" like I said your cowards hiding your own hatred with your God shield.

Back to the OP Sodom was destroyed by natural causes but people like today want to put blame on something so they blamed the people of Sodom and said "God did it"

Sounds to me Sodom was a party town to me


Why hasn't he destroyed Amsterdam? New york? Las Vegas ?London? all great places and is as great as a party place as Sodom.

I was quoting that piece based on the poster's disbelief of a fiery hell. That's why I underlined the "flames" part.
Making a point on how many christians pick,choose and discard beliefs from the bible.

" I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book." (Revelation 22:18)


This is why its futile for nonbelievers to pull verses out of the bible, you use them out of context to twist their meaning into what you want as opposed to what they actually say. This verse was talking about the book of Revelation explicitly, not the entire bible. The entire title/theme of Revelation is actually "The Revelation of Jesus Christ" and it is his revealing or "unveiling" to the world that is to not be meddled with or you will have the curses of the entire book heaped on you.

BTW, you're already changing it by taking that one verse out of context. Watch out for those curses
. Nonbelievers using random verses in the bible to beat christians over the head with...rofl. You don't even know what you're reading.

Sodom was not a party town except for the 1% who ran it and their lackeys. Probably like the other cities you mentioned...

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?


homosexuality is not an atrocity. it's a sexual orientation
discriminating people for their orientation is morally wrong

disclosure: i don't need imaginary friends to whisper to and i take those books believers cherish so much as plain human artifacts that were produced by human beings striving for human goals.

Psalm 103:8 "The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy."


"smoking can damage your health"
Gauloises Blond, verse 1


what is this thing with spreading quotes from books written by people, with the intention to say anything about some imaginary friend.

Oh, I should add: i really don't need the blessing of such an imaginary friend. I need fresh food and water, good air to breath and at least a few people who cherish reason and common sense. and if i want to reproduce, i need some plooking every now and then.

I don't have the time to dispell myths right now.

Their is no such place where people are kept alive in eternal torment.

Study the meanings of these words: Sheol, Hades, Gehenna, and Tartaroo. These are the only 4 words the Bible translated into Hell, and Tartaroo is only mentioned once. Tartaroo is the only place of Sheol where any beings are kept conscious - and the only beings inhabitating that pit of Sheol are fallen angels/demons, who are kept in eternal chains of darkness (a dark dungeon/prison) until the Final Judgement.

Look at my hell thread and research things.

Truth prevails over lies, everytime.

The LORD will bless you on earth regardless of your belief in Him or lack of belief.

Just don't expect any kind of afterlife if that's your true sentiments.

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.



That is what happens when you let politicians/manipulator write the bible and decide what is holy. Above is a masterpeice worhy of satan himself. He must be so proud of his work to be able to corrupt the bible and have all the sheep following the text and not what they know in their hearts and logic to be right. Must be hard to find god that way for anyone who questions things that have a pure heart should be the ugliness and hate in the above text. This is the power pyramid of fear and hate at work creating duality. No love thy neightbour here is there.

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.

And what will you do if you find out in heaven that you a neither male or female there? And when you find people loving each other in a way they choose that is not hurting them at all in symbiosis? This is a list of judging. I myself is a very chaste man but it is not my right to judge what is right for others and neither is it anyone else than the person involved if it is symbiotic. More hate, fear and hell. Not very enlightened is it? God if this one is going to heaven. Please either make him more openminded or put us in very different rooms or send me somewhere else completly where I do not have to deal with people caught up in duality.

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.


So a married couple that love each other and are as one and try different ways of loving each other are sining? You really must like feeling guilty all the time or do you get some kind of kick from saying your sorry or doing something that is not allowed. And if feeling sexually good is a sin then you might wanna tell god to change how the human body is created because some of the kundalini awakeening process can create orgasms in a person (have unfortunatly not had that experiance myself). And that is literaly god making a human orgasm.

Yes, they must.

I try not to watch porn 10 times a day and constantly play with myself....but I still slip occasionally.

Sorry for the graphic image, but I'm illustrating a point...


That depends. If you are happy those 10 times a day and not hurting yourself then there is no worry. But if it is a behavoir that is there because you lack something else in your life then it is not so good. Everything in the right amount and it is up to you to decide what is to much and to little. Sometimes even 0 is the right amount. Before when I was depressed I probably did it to much, but that was because I had a hunger that I could not get rid of and in my case it was destructive. Nowdays that hunger is totaly gone.

lack of belief? Call it disbelief, that's a better choice!

and no afterlife for me? You sure? Hurray! Gimme the void!
Gimme anything that prevents me from being in the company of
The People with The Soft Voice telling others when and where
and why not they can put their organ in someone else's organ.

Look, people, Sodom was judged for being a Republican hell hole, just like modern America.

Yes, America is Sodom, but not in the way a lot of you think.

Homosexuality is not the issue here. Exploitation is.

Both sides on this thread seem to be unable to read the Bible.

Earth Evolves is right the Bible never says Sodom and Gomorah were wiped our becuase of homosexuality

but if this thread is any indication they were wiped out due to a huge comprehension fail

Sodom was destroyed for the same things America is doing. In that way, I agree with the Christians. But, theirs is an epic fail because they assume that this means homosexuality. No, THE SIN OF SODOM IS THAT ITS 99% THOUGHT THE SAME WAY AS ITS 1%. JUST LIKE AMERICA! Homosexuality was not the issue. They were co-opted, just like America. Just like the followers of Sheriff Joe, Rick Santorum, and other Sodom-ites in the true sense. They were gay, straight, whatever sexuality lacked empathy it did not matter. JUST LIKE THIS COUNTRY!
