You have some other options in mind?

So you are denying this to be your personal opinion?

As the leader of Israel just said, "If you take all the weapons from the Israelites, Israel will cease to exist. If you take all the weapons from the Palestinians, war will cease to exist." This ignores the fact that the world restored Israel to it's homeland in 1946.
You also ignore this;

A boatload of Zionists arrived in Palestine at the end of WWII. They took over and established the state of Israel. So what? What does any of this have to do with either the Canaanites or the Bible?

What word replaced homosexual in bibles in 1946, and why is homosexual a better translation?

While your physical body will disintegrate as you say, your soul does not die. And you do not have to be a Christina to believe that.

Absolutely.

It is a statement of fact.

You can easily disprove it as a fact, by quoting a verse from Genesis 1 that indicates homosexuality in the original design.

You might want to look up the meanings of 'fact' and 'opinion'.

A lie with gay twirl wearing a blonde wig.

It clearly (except for blondes) was a response to an assertion by another poster about present day Israel.

What ancient Hebrew word is there for homosexual?

One word can't be that hard to find, you made the claim. prove it.

Also, you've conveniently neglected to mention the other historical finds that make some (which one you haven't shared) Bibles more accurate.

Still waiting, again and again.....

Here is a good translation of Hebrew scriptures condemning homosexual behavior:

Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 - If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their blood guiltiness is upon them.

More emphatic condemnations of course are repeated in the New Testament.

Perhaps this will help you understand how ridiculous the question you have plagiarized really is.

If you are a translator, you know the importance of context.

I think you are lying.

If not, address the fundamental context of Genesis 1 & 2. Show us your scholarly skill.

So you agree that Genesis 1 & 2 set the God designed norm for marriage and sexual activity, right?

The word 'homosexual' appears in the New Testament, which had positively nothing to do with Hebrew.

Snicker. Snort.

David. This is a very poor translation. Why should anyone believe a word you say?

Welcome back though. We missed your incredibly stupid posts.

It had nothing to do with Paul's letters which were written in Greek also. The word homosexual was invented around the turn of the 20th century David.
