<quoted text>Um hon, I'm not sure if anyone has ever told you this, but the inclusion of "homosexuals" or any variation thereof on Paul's much repeated list of those not inheriting the kingdom of heaven, is a bit if a fib. According to the oldest known copies of the work, Paul uses a word not recognized as meaning either same sex sexual acts or those who engage in them. What it really means has been lost with those who copied it 19 centuries ago. Sorry.
If you still want to believe that Paul said the h*m*s no going to heaven, that is your problem with God, not ours. If you want to bet your eternity on the hope that Jesus would never ever bless the love and commitment of two people, faithful to his word, marrying in his name, for no other reason than you're freaked out about your own homoerotic fantasies... Good luck with that.
Although you and many other professed Christians would like to modernize the Bible to suit your pursuasions, God's word never changes. Since the book of Genesis, homosexual practices have been condemned by Almighty God Jehovah.

Jesus as well as his spirit begotten apostles always taught that fact, and the Scriptures show that many stopped that practice to follow Jesus and the apostles in pure worship to Almighty God Jehovah.

Sweetie, you have obviously mistaken me for someone who is Christian. Sorry, just well versed in the subject. While you are free to believe that "God's word never changes, the reality remains that "The Bible" itself has been changed on any number of occasions.

Strange, there are no "homosexual practices" mentioned in Genesis, but you are free to believe otherwise.

Mmmmkay... Jesus never mentioned either homosexuals or "homosexual practices" and the only actual, non-adulterated mention of either, ANYWHERE in the New Testament, was when Paul said that God made the presumably heterosexual Christians of Rome do some very queer things as payback for their idolatry.

"Although the title page of The King James Bible boasted that it was "newly translated out of the original tongues," the work was actually a revision of The Bishop's Bible of 1568, which was a revision of The Great Bible of 1539, which was itself based on three previous English translations from the early 1500s. So, the men who produced the King James Bible not only inherited some of the errors made by previous English translators, but invented some of their own."

Brilliant, thanks for sharing this link....

If a person is a practicing homosexual that is strictly their business, it is society that condemned homosexuals because of their stand, based on religious convictions, not the Bibles view of homosexuality.

It is also society that is now condoning homosexuals and their sexual preferences, and it is religions that are exposing them as perverse, because they are, and the different Christian religions that are fighting for their condemnation of homosexuality.

Jehovah's witnesses don't care what religion you are or what life style you choose to make you happy. God word the Bible has judged your conduct already.

Jehovah's witnesses do not judge anyone, if you are a homosexual then you are being exposed as wicked by religion that claims to be Christian, and professed Christians who are self righteous.

Jehovah's witnesses preach God's word and you decide whether you want to believe your Bible or not. We don't tell anyone how to live their life, the Bible says it's God's way or the highway.

No ancient Bible text, Bible translation, or Judeo-Christian tradition places in question the Bible's many explicit commands against all 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.
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."
Dear Buzzing Manito Manurehead,

It appears that your Lie Detector needs to go back to the shop for recalibration.

Despite your claims to the contrary, life and truth have long since made much of the prosciptions of the Book of Levi irrelevant and obsolete.

The New Testament was written nearly two thousand years ago.

Much truth and reality has been discovered and revealed since then. All of what is true, both then and now, is advocated by Jesus and presented through His Teachings.

It is not good for you to deny this.

Rev. Ken

The Bible repeatedly condemns all homosexual behavior in the plainest of terms and in both Testaments. This fact is supported by EVERY ancient text, Bible translation, and Judeo-Christian tradition.
