“Know ye not that the unrighteous shall

not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not

deceived: neither fornicators nor idolators,

nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers

of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor

covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor

extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

That's pretty much covered in the first sentence, but thanks for trying to confuse the issue and help out at the same time.

More closely aligned with the issue is Peter's comment

"And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?"

1 Peter 4:18 (1611 King James Bible)

This kind of makes arguments in semantics a moot point.

Whether you and your gay ilk believe it or not, Rabbi Israel Stein (retired) said:

1 Sam 18:4: the Hebrew “arum” or naked does not appear in the text; if Jonathan was naked, the Hebrew would definitively say so.

1 Sam 20: 41-42: David “exceeded uncontrollably” refers to weeping; they were crying, and their friendship was pledged to last even unto the lives of their respective children (seed).

Spilling seed w/o any procreation breaks the commandment to be fruitful and multiply; being gay also negates this commandment, hence the prohibition in Lev 18:22.

David was unabashedly heterosexual in his pursuit of Bathsheba; David was accused by the prophet Nathan of both murder and adultery, but never homosexuality.

The Bible paints saints warts and all, so why would it hide a homosexual relationship between David and Jonathan?

Then again, for some, why is every relationship between 2 men or 2 women always sexual?...

Ricky, perhaps you can answer that for Rabbi Stein, myself and everyone else on this forum?

If you felt good about choosing to live in open rebellion against God's many commands against homosexual acts, you wouldn't be trolling Christian threads.

Joe dear, why would it be necessary in what you are passing off as your mind, for me to refute something which I have already proved to be nothing but a pathological lie on your part in the first place? You made that sh*t up sweetie, what more needs to be said?

The only pathological lie on this forum is your "gay" retelling the relationship between David and Jonathan; no responsible rabbi would tolerate such foolishness.

your own. You have been repeating it dozens of times over the years and you have now been called on it. I feel sorry for you, I do. You've gotten away with it for so long and now your lies are coming back to haunt you. Keep up the brave front, but you have to know that there is now no escaping your having been exposed as nothing more than a liar and a complete fraud. I'm certainly not going to let you forget,

Why would a Hebrew lesson from a real rabbi haunt me?

Is that what's haunting you, Ricky?
