I get you disagreeing with the ideology, fine.
But it is what it is.
Know Your Greek
And some of these ex-homosexuals are in heaven today with Jesus, why because they changed and stopped.
They never tried to justify to continue to practice. Interestingly some of these former homosexuals who are now in heaven as angels will be judging homosexuals that are resurrected back to this earth during the thousand year reign of Christ in the future. And they will be in the best position to help them recover and stop, having real empathy for their struggles. But make no mistake, in time they will have to stop or be judged by their heavenly peers that did.
Some of the posts in this thread remind me of this scripture, and so if the shoe fits......
2 Peter 3:14-17
Therefore, beloved ones, since you are awaiting these things, do your utmost to be found finally by him spotless and unblemished and in peace. 15 Furthermore, consider the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote you according to the wisdom given him, 16 speaking about these things as he does in all his letters. However, some things in them are hard to understand, and these things the ignorant and unstable are twisting, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.
17 You, therefore, beloved ones, having this advance knowledge, be on your guard so that you may not be led astray with them by the error of the lawless people and fall from your own steadfastness.

Me too! Like the ones that quote Leviticus, Romans and 1 Corinthians against Gay people and totally ignore what Jesus Christ said about loving others, judging not, and treating others with respect!
I completely agree. This doesn't make homosexuality any less wrong, it does mean those people who call themselves christians need to be corrected.
Remember, many call themselves Christians .. few actually are.

Your post is a nice piece of obfuscation.
Since people have tried and failed to say the Bible doesn't condemn homosexuality the goalpost is moved to the Bible doesn't matter.
If the Bible doesn't matter to you then it doesn't, you have the right to your opinion.

I want to ask any anti gay people a question....why is being Gay a sin? like regal says what actual reason is it being bad when it doesn't effect anything or anyone.
Now we know that the Law is fine if one applies it properly, 9 recognizing that law is made, not for a righteous man, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, ungodly and sinners, disloyal and profane, murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, manslayers, 10 sexually immoral people, men who practice homosexuality, kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and everything else that is in opposition to the wholesome teaching 11 according to the glorious good news of the happy God, with which I was entrusted.
