Homosexuality and the Bible

Aug 15, 2011 | Posted by: Selecia Jones- JAX FL | Full story: www.smh.com.au

Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

I wish I could figure out whats right and whats wrong. I grew up JW and they teach that any "unnatural" desires we have are there because the Devil and his servants are roving about the earth planting these ideas in our minds and hearts. And we should surpress these desires and pray about them to God and talk to ppl about it who will pray for you. They have ppl talk about how successful they are in throwing away bad thoughts.

i personally dont know though. if something feels good between two people and they aren't hurting anyone else, why is it condemned?

why would god hate someone for having a good time?

i dont think the disease argument is valid because diseases effect everyone whether they are homo or heterosexual. all it takes to counteract that is a condom. the thing about the list in 1 tim is everythin there puts others at risk without them knowing it. homosexuality is not something that makes others suffer because of your actions, unless, you are lying to your partner about the diseases you are carrying. which, again, effects both homosexuals and heterosexuals.

<quoted text>You trivialize the horrible suffering of homosexuals. Much of an entire generation was decimated my AIDS, and there are many other diseases and social ills that continue to cause enormous suffering among those who choose to live in open rebellion against God's many commands against all homosexual behavior. God's Word stands for all eternity:
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.
Romans 1:26-27 - For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
I Corinthians 6:9 (NIV)- 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.
I Timothy 1:8-11 (NASB)- "But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted."
God knows better than man!

Good point.. I just want to see the fighting stop. I figured I might ask nicely? Idk.. Male, female, hermaphrodite, heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual, we are all humans. All the same. I'm straight, some are and some are not. I want to know why we can't get along. That's my only reason for being here.
No offense, but I don't see how anyone would want to be heterosexual, hermaphrodite, homosexual, bisexual, or any of that stuff.

<quoted text>
Please note that Jesus said nothing about homosexuality. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that homosexuality is a sin. The biblical definition of abomination is that it is a sin (Leviticus 20:25,26.) Nor was the sin of Sodom, homosexuality (Ezekiel 16:46-51.) All other passages referring to Sodom and Gomorrah refer to Ezekiel's take on the sin of Sodom. Fornication refers to pedophilia, temple sex. Adultery was about women as property. Marriage, not biblical, was a civil union from the beginning. It was not important to the Catholic Church until the Council of Trent; approximately, 1450 AD. With Judaism, marriage was a contract. Genesis says nothing about marriage. Marriage was not an ancient Hebrew word and neither was wife. Genesis also spoke of Lamech taking two women. Ever consider that mankind was set up to fail if Eve did not have sex with her sons. Incest was necessary if man was to multiply as commanded. No, God does not tell us what is marriage. The Bible only speaks of marriage. I taught my kids to be responsible with everything they do including sex. I also taught them that there are consequences with everything they do. Jesus speaks the same wisdom. You lay you pay. What is honorable and what is righteous. What is justice. What then is what moral. Nothing immoral about homosexuality.
Go to this website. Then tell me that the Bible says nothing about homosexuality

It could be that the emotional damage might come?

Talk about yourself, share your own thoughts instead of trying to convince others. That's my challenge, but you do as you want, but I might not hang too much around people who want to change me.

Hey, this question was to Jacob, not Bob (but they seem to be from the same place? Are they the same person?)

If this is Jacob, I might challenge him:

Thanks for talking about yourself.

Here you are selling a message, aren't you?

Can you talk about yourself instead without "selling" or giving advices?

How was this for you? Have you repented? Did you give your whole heart to God? Do you manage to talk about that without selling?
