Where there is a will, there is a way.

It is not up to man to tell you what you can or cannot be.

Merry Christmas

Now, I'm answering here from a perspective regarding biblical matters and not meaning to sound pro-gay nor anti-gay. I will say that there is no place in the Bible where Jesus Christ Himself actually ever spoke on the matter of gayness or issues of homosexuality. But those who claim to be His followers sure have milked the subject for all its worth. And they have behaved in a very mean-spirited way while doing so. And too many times they have acted in a condemning way to those who practice the gay lifestyle instead of reaching out in brotherly love.

What does the Bible have to say about being gay? There may be other verses but here are some to begin with.

Please allow me to first preface these biblical quotes by first saying that the Old Testamnent was in a time when people were stoned to death for their sins. They would literally take a person out in public and gather around and throw stones at the person until the person died. But the New Testament was in a time when the emphasis became more on grace and forgiveness. It was Jesus Christ Himself that said those who are without sin can throw the first stone. No takers there. All have sinned, from a biblical standpoint, and fallen short of the grace of God. It's also interesting that Jesus was a friend to the ones that were labeled as "sinners" but despised the religious leaders, of the day, who He regardes as hypocrites. I like the song "We Fall Down". In it, Bob Carlisle sings, "We fall down. We get up. The saint is just the sinner who falls down but gets up".

Now on to what the Bible says ...
In the Old Testament of the Bible, we find the scriptures (probaly written by saying,

"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Leviticus 20:13 KJV: King James Version)

"Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an abomination."
(Leviticus 18:22 KJV: King James Version)

In the New Testament of the Bible, we find the scriptures saying,

"... women did change the natural use into that which is against nature ... likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men, working that which is unseemly ..."
(Romans 1:26-27 KJV: King James Version).

Yes!
The Bible isent everything. Its a book of words, many are true words, many are words written by mans interpretation of God and what His words might be. By putting in the clause of "God protects His word" doesent make it true. Anybody can put that in their book. "faith, Hope, Charity" not "read, believe, judge", The stories from the disciples in the New Testament are from them, and not God direct. Much of Jesus is in there as true. Like another poster said He dident personally condemn gay. Christianity is "love God, love one another, Jesus redeems our souls" My guess is that doesnt exclude gay.

When God created man, he said,“It is not good for a man to live alone”(Genesis 2:18). Therefore, God created woman in a way that made it possible for her to meet a man’s needs. Likewise, a man complements a woman and meets her needs in a way that only a man is able to. This is designed bt God. In other words, according to the Bible, God intended sexuality to operate in a very specific way: within the confines of marriage, between a man and a woman. That is why most homosexuals have such a hard time accepting Christianity.
What does it take to be Christian? Belief in the Lord Jesus Christ, that God has raised Him from the dead. Believe this in your heart, and you are a believer. In order to be a believer, one can certainly be of a homosexual disposition. However, if one intends to move up in responsibility in the church, and perhaps be a teacher and dispenser of Truth, one would have to raise questions as to whether one could continue his or her sexual relationships.

We all must decide if we are going to follow after truth, which is the Word of God, or follow our sinful desires.
