God clearly wasn't referring to gays since they will burn in Hell anyway.
There is no such thing as God although you Christians have invented 233 of them in each of your English versions available to select from.

1 TIM. 3:2, 12 & Titus 1:6 ("A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife...."--KJ, ML, RS, LB, AS, BBE, NI, NWT, NEB, NAS, TEV, LV) versus ("A bishop must be irreproachable, married only once"--JB, NAB). The JB and NAB clearly limit a bishop to only one wife whereas the former do not keep him from having many wives as long as he has no more than one at a time.

1 TIM. 3:16 ("...great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh...."--KJ) versus ("Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of our religion: He was manifested in the flesh...."--RS, ML, JB, NI, AS, BBE, NEB, NAB, TEV, NWT, NAS). With differences of this magnitude is it any wonder that the King James only supporters are up-in-arms. In this instance, the KJ is the only version clearly saying God was manifest in the flesh. If "he" is referring to Jesus Christ, then it is only stating the obvious. If Jesus came, he came in the flesh or as a man. But it doesn't say he was God or God came in the flesh.

1 TIM. 4:4 ("For every creature of God is good...."--KJ, AS) versus ("For everything created by God is good...."--RS, ML, LB, JB, NI, BBE, NEB, NAB, TEV, NWT, NAS, LV). If everything created by God is good, that would include far more than just the "creatures" mentioned in the KJ and ASV.

1 TIM. 6:10 ("For the love of money is the root of all evil"--KJ, RS, ML, JB, NEB, NAS, LV) versus ("For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil"--NI, AS, TEV, NAS) versus ("For the love of money is a root of all evil"--BBE) versus ("For the love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things"--NWT). Is the love of money "a" root or "the" root? If it's "a" root then there could be many others. Is it the root of "all evil" or "all kinds of evil"? "All kinds" does not mean "all evil." Some could be excluded.

2 TIM. 3:16 ("All scripture is given by inspiration of God"--KJ, RS, ML, LB, JB, NI, BBE, NAB, TEV, NWT, NAS) versus ("Every scripture inspired of God is also profitable for teaching...."--AS, NEB, LV). A cardinal belief of all fundamentalists is that all scripture is inspired, but that is clearly not the import of the AS, NEB and LV. They leave open the possibility that some of Scripture is not inspired.

Sociopathy is a serious mental disorder dollarsbill. Your sociopathic tendencies of lying and wanting to have power and control over other people are a huge insanity. It is important that normal people like the homosexuals visiting here recognize you for the mentally ill monster that you are.
But it's perfectly clear than gays are Biblephobic, lying, perverts. Caused by their "reprobate minds".

Romans 1 "men with men" "God gave them over to a REPROBATE MIND".

Revelation 13:16-17 (NKJV)
16 He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, 17 and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

The rise of Sodomites.

Luke 17:28 (NKJV)
28 Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot:

This world is DOOMED. Nukes ready to fly, biological warfare, virtual warfare, Islamic suicidal terrorists, worldwide economic collapse, US Government FILLED with LYING traitors.

Mark 13:19 (NKJV)
19 For in those days there will be tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the creation which God created until this time, nor ever shall be.

Rothschild, an Ashkenazi (Gen 10) Jew created National Israel on Aug 29, 1897. In reality Ashkenazi Jews are Gentiles descended from Japheth.

The Bible is exact; per Daniel's prophecy which began in 457 BC places Jesus' resurrection at 30 AD and 40 yrs (generation) later God destroyed their temple. Daniel's 70 weeks were fulfilled with the ushering in of the Gentiles. The most Holy is Jesus, not a building and the 70 weeks are sealed. There is no Jesuit 7 yr tribulation period acquired from the Jesuits and brought in to the Protestants in 1818~ to Irving 1827 and on to JN Darby in 1830 and then introduced into the USA.

The star of Lucifer (Amos 5:26), the Hexagram (666) is not the symbol of the Jews as they protest it heavily as they did the Hexagram (and still do) and National Israel. Israel/Jacob is a people and National Israel is abusing the Jew and destroying them. The Jews symbol is the Menorah; not the Hexagram. Prior to Solomon the Hexagram has been the star of Lucifer........ It is prominent in Islam, Catholicism and Zionism. Has nothing to do with the Jew or Christians.

Now, the Jew proves there is a God as they do still exist to this day. Christianity proves there is the true and living God. All should read Martyr's Mirror and Foxes book of Martyrs. All should read a real Bible too. Seek God, repent and come to Jesus if He will call upon you.

1 COR. 7:36 ("But if a man thinketh that he behaveth himself unseemly toward his virgin daughter...and if need so requireth, let him do what he will; he sinneth not; let them marry"--AS) versus the BBE, NAB, KJ, NI, NEB, NWT AND ML which omit the word "daughter." The latter don't agree with the ASV's teaching that fathers should marry their daughters rather than behave "unseemly" toward them.
Only a nut calls himself god (Reverend is a name of God). The ASV is not a real Bible. You use Romish and Alexandrian text to support your lack of knowledge. Why do you Atheist want to expound your goofy beliefs? Your gibberish is loonesy.

Fear the Lord, repent from you evil ways.

Satan sent you to call God a liar. That's why you're here.

John 8:44 (NKJV)
44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.

No dear, God sent me here to tell you that you're lost. When a non-Christian can see just how far off the mark from CHRIST'S teachings you are, as a Christian, you should know your ass is in trouble.
