David, are christians still bound to follow all of the laws of Leviticus? Or only some of them? Or none of them?
Where in the bible does it say which is correct?

No, it repeatedly says to love all.
I know you have a darned hard time knowing the difference between love and sex (especially with your history - see wife catching David having lustful sex with a man) but give it a try.
Forgive yourself first David and then you will have the compassion Jesus had.
We really should start charging you therapy fees....
Have none of you actually read the Bible?
It repeatedly condemns and prohibits all homosexual behavior in the plainest of terms and in both Testaments.
What is so hard to understand about this?

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 bloodguiltiness 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."
Jude 1:6-7 (NASB)- And angels who did not keep their own domain, but abandoned their proper abode, He has kept in eternal bonds under darkness for the judgment of the great day, just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.

If you loved someone, you would warn them of hellfire!

I'm not trying to start an arguement but we aren't all going to hell because we've all sined. We have to ask God for his forgiveness and he will forgive us. He wipes your slate clean and gives you a chance to start over. Why is it so hard for people to believe in God? The bible is a historical piece of literature. You believe in the holacaust don't you? The bible has more proof and backing than any other historical document. What is there to debate over??
ok this is going to start an argument but what i dont get is why a sane person could listen and believe every word a BOOK tells them there is no proof for or against gods exsistance so why do you follow ALL of his words you can follow sone of hus morals which most people of today fo follow but to believe homosexuality is the same as rape and adultary is dispicable love is love and no one can DECIDE who they love and you cant prove they have decided, justas we cant prove gid therefore why be imoral to human being when the god your preaching too MAY not exsist why say someone is wrong to love someone when you have ni hard evidence to prove him just as i cant prove he doesnt exsist thats why im kind and nice tiwards all who have moral views

52 years ago I believed in what was taught me. Why not? The people in my life I trusted. Parents-grandparents-neighbors . As I grew and become more experienced with life issues and began yo question more looking for answers, the less the bible made sense. Nothing in it matched anything I went through nor matched happenings in life of those around me. Took what I know,see,listen to the life of other people and compared to what the bible tells of creation became less plausable. Previous years of praying for answers-help went unanswered. If there id a god,he sure stays hidden and silent and no interest in interactive with his children. Like an absentee parent. Abandoned.

Ewan,

Your point of view is reasonable ... and moral.

Jesus is recorded in the bible as having told a parable about a Samaritan. This man encountered a person along the side of the road who was injured and had been beaten and robbed on the Sabbath.

Others, including a Jewish Cleric, had passed by the injured man without offerring help. The Samaritan helped the man, put him up at an Inn and paid the innkeeper to nurse him back to health.

The parable is interesting because the belief among Jews at the time was that only the Jews were to receive the benefit of Salvation through the Covenant of God with the Jews. The Jewish Cleric, behaving according to the Jewish Law for behavior on the Sabbath, refused to offer assistance.

Jesus posed the question as to whether the Samaritan would be seen by God as righteous, deserving of God's Grace and promise of Salvation, even though he had acted to help the man, which help was against the Letter of the Law.

Like you wrote, "... Love is love."

Rev. Ken
