With all the gay topics on here trying to push their agenda, I want a thread that actually challenges gays to back their faith with the bible, since they say gays can be a christian and Christians and required to follow the bible if they truly Love God.

If your a follower of Christ, you will obey his commands (John 14:15). Jesus SUMMED UP all the laws as Love god and Love one another. He DID NOT cancel the other laws with this command, just summed them up.

Matthew 22:37-40
37 Jesus said to him,“‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like it:‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’[b] 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”

and

John 13:34-35
34 A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. 35 By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”

Gays focus only on Love one another, but ignore the love God part. If you dont Love God you will not love one another either. So by saying the bible doesnt speak against homosexuality when is clearly does, you are saying God was a liar, which proves you dont love God.

So its either believe the whole bible, or believe none at all.

2 Timothy 3:16
16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,

So how can gays truly follow Jesus, when they dont love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind either???

Not until they repent of their sins. Until that point they are just honoring Jesus with their lips and their hearts are far from him.

Yes, of course they can!
Being the sexual orientation God made you to be is not a sin.

Yeah but gay sex is a sin! And gays have sex with who ever they are in a relationship with. I seriously doubt we have gay or celibate virgins waiting until marriage, that would be a mockery of the bible.

Leviticus 19:19 reads, "You are to keep My statutes. You shall not breed together two kinds of your cattle; you shall not sow your field with two kinds of seed, nor wear a garment upon you of two kinds of material mixed together."

The modern synthetic footballs are ugly and slippery anyways.

Leviticus 11:8, which is discussing pigs, reads "You shall not eat of their flesh nor touch their carcasses; they are unclean to you."

No tattoos or piercings.
Leviticus 19:28 reads, "You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the Lord."

Leviticus 11:10 reads, "But whatever is in the seas and in the rivers that does not have fins and scales among all the teeming life of the water, and among all the living creatures that are in the water, they are detestable things to you."

Nice try you all that dont understand the bible.
The tattoo part is because the pagans marked tattoos themselves as how they worshiped there Gods. Thats is why they also were commands not to trim the edges of their beards because that was another way they worshiped their pagan Gods.

All the other stuff that was just list was part of the ceremonial or sacrificial parts of the law.

All the ceremonial or sacrificial parts of the law have been fulfilled and the moral aspects of the law still applies. The book of Hebrews even confirms that we dont need the sacrificial system anymore because Jesus was our sacrifice.

And yes, Christians shouldnt be eating Pork, Shellfish and Catfish as the are unclean animals and toxic. While they are much cleaner now, they still have more toxins than the clean animals God said to eat.

But all Im seeing here is the usual, lemme try to find a verse and point out what you may not be doing rather than admit to your own sin and repent. Not one gay can use the bible to justify a homosexual relationship because they know it is wrong.

Reading the bible in its context lets people look less foolish instead of tryinf to grab verses when the dont understand anything about the chapter at all and use them out of context.

Disagreeing with homosexuality doesnt mean you hate them.

If you disagree with what your mother/father/brother/sister does...does it mean you hate them?

If a parent doesnt like that their child stole something or cursed out loud...does it mean they hate their child?

If you disagree with your best frined on a topic or how they go about doing things...do you hate your best friend?

Bigotry is the state of mind of a bigot: someone who, as a result of their prejudices, treats other people with hatred, contempt, and intolerance on the basis of a person's race, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, language, socioeconomic status, or other status.

Your atheist so it will be a complete waste of time even reasoning with you about a God you dont believe in. God Love you too!

If a man lies with another man as he would with a woman, they have both done what's detestable and shall be put to death.
If this isn't hate...
