Thanks for sharing your fantasies with us. Jesus died on the cross to show us there is more than life in the world and more than what is written in scripture.

What does the Sodom myth have to do with gay folks marrying? There isn't any mention of gay people in the story at all.

And the towns people weren't determined to marry the Angels and form loving families, now were they?

And living a law-abiding productive life, falling in love, forming families, and legally marrying will send everyone to Hell?

How does that work?

Proverbs 6:16-19 ESV

There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers.

You may want to read this particular list carefully, you are on it.

There are no verses in the Bible dealing with gay folks, or our marriages. Not a one. There is no mention at all of people who can only be attracted to the same gedner.

And, no, you can't quote Leviticus unless you personally follow ALL of the holiness code for ancient Hebrew priests yourself.

Otherwise, you would just be a hypocrite.

He didn't actually say that. That is a translation. In the translation it says he fulfilled the Law of the Prophets. What does that actually mean? He disregarded many religious purity codes written in the Law of Moses. He disregarded divorce dispensations. He touched those who were unclean. He chastised the scribes and religious leaders who followed the Law of Moses. His words and actions show that he intended to change the Law of Moses. Was Jesus a liar?

Yes, hell IS a fairy tale. How can you possibly verify that it exists? YOU CAN'T, so STFU about it. NOBODY in this country is required to swallow your stupid religious beliefs.

Isn't it odd that Jews wrote the Buybull and Jews don't believe in hell????

So what you are saying is that Paul got to pick what parts of the OT to push and what parts to ignore.

Got it.

Yet Paul also says there is no male and no female, no Jew, no gentile, that we are all one in Jesus.

Are you now saying Paul lied?

To paraphrase the words of Hulk Hogan:
"whatcha gonna do when Judge-O-mania runs wild on you?”

Matthew 25:31-46
The Sheep and the Goats
31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
34 “Then the King will say to those on his right,‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
37 “Then the righteous will answer him,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
40 “The King will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left,‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
44 “They also will answer,‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
45 “He will reply,‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”

Better start looking for that Get OUT of HELL free card, Eric!

Rose Feratu's choice of religion is none of your business or mine. And as for me, I like the "old fashioned idea" of heaven. Everyone being nice and getting along.

Thing is I've lived here in THIS world with souls like yours and I have serious doubts that a leopard's spots disappear when it gets to heaven.

Let's look at what the Bible says is the sin of Sodom.

Ezekiel 16:49
"'Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

Also check:
What Was the Sin of Sodom and Gomorrah?

then compare that with:
The Sin of Sodom
Serious Questions and Bible Answers about the Homosexual Movement
https://www.google.com/search...

The second mentions 1 Kings 14:24 and 2 Kings 23:7. Here is what the Biblegateway has for these passages:

1 Kings 14:24
New International Version (©2011)
There were even male shrine prostitutes in the land; the people engaged in all the detestable practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites.

New Living Translation (©2007)
There were even male and female shrine prostitutes throughout the land. The people imitated the detestable practices of the pagan nations the LORD had driven from the land ahead of the Israelites.

English Standard Version (©2001)
and there were also male cult prostitutes in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations that the LORD drove out before the people of Israel.

2 Kings 23:7

New International Version (©2011)
He also tore down the quarters of the male shrine prostitutes that were in the temple of the LORD, the quarters where women did weaving for Asherah.

New Living Translation (©2007)
He also tore down the living quarters of the male and female shrine prostitutes that were inside the Temple of the LORD, where the women wove coverings for the Asherah pole.

English Standard Version (©2001)
And he broke down the houses of the male cult prostitutes who were in the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the Asherah.

Imagine THAT! It was worshiping pagan gods and taking part in forced prostitution rituals that GOD'S WORD SAYS is what caused God to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah. Not because of homosexuals.

BIBLE BELIEVERS.com LIES about what the passages actually say!

Maybe you should study the Bible from more sources than just the anti-gay web sites.

That part never made sense to me. The townspeople were supposed to be able to over power two angels and rape them? Jacob had a lot of trouble wrestling with an angel so I'm fairly certain the angels in this story weren't about to be raped.

What DOES make sense is that a walled city in that time was wary of strangers and definitely people who got in without permission.

Wow sounds just like the USA today!

My Mom always said "Hell is here on Earth". After reading all the 'christian love' from these homophobes I think she's right!

Just keep asking them where they get the GET OUT OF HELL FREE Card when it comes to Matthew 25 and Luke 10 (The parables of the Goats and the Sheep and the Good Samaritan respectively)
