Sorry to tell you this Jesse, it is sinful. direct from the old testament, book of Leviticus:
Leviticus 18: 22
Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind, because it is an abomination.
What do you have to say about the truth now?
oh yes liv 18:22 the ONE AND ONLY verse in the entire old testiment that christians like you seem to follow. You do know that you must follow ALL or NONE right you cant pick and chose like a buffett line in vegas
liv 19:19 19 “‘Keep my decrees.

“‘Do not mate different kinds of animals.

“‘Do not plant your field with two kinds of seed.

“‘Do not wear clothing woven of two kinds of material.

so do you have a dog that is NOT purebread? if so you are going against the bible. Do you have more than one thing in your garden? do you wear cotten nylon or cotton wool blends in your clothes?
liv 19:26 “‘Do not eat any meat with the blood still in it.
do you eat rare or medeum rare stakes?
liv 19:27 “‘Do not cut the hair at the sides of your head or clip off the edges of your beard.
do you get your hair cut or do you shave your face?
liv 19:33 33 “‘When a foreigner resides among you in your land, do not mistreat them. 34 The foreigner residing among you must be treated as your native-born. Love them as yourself, for you were foreigners in Egypt. I am the Lord your God.
are you for all immigration?
liv 19:18 “‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.
do you truly love your neighbor as yourself, or do you have a grudge aginst anyone?
liv 19:23-25 23 “‘When you enter the land and plant any kind of fruit tree, regard its fruit as forbidden.[b] For three years you are to consider it forbidden[c]; it must not be eaten. 24 In the fourth year all its fruit will be holy, an offering of praise to the Lord. 25 But in the fifth year you may eat its fruit. In this way your harvest will be increased. I am the Lord your God.
do you wait 5 years to eat fruit off trees?

once again you cant pick and choose you have to follow it ALL or none of it not just follow what works for you and ignore everything else

No,we all cannot do these things you listed.Thats why jesus came and died on the cross,so that ALL sin is forgiven,if you brlieve that jesus did this wonderful sacRifice for you and me and the rest of the world.Its called GRACE.yOU HAVE A CHOICE,he WILL NOT SHOVE IT DOWN YOUR THROAT.Its all up to you to accept it or not.Remember,that i do not have to pay for any sin that you commit,only my own and vice versa.
