The four Bible scholars and teachers quoted below have each come to a slightly different conclusion about whether homosexuality is actually prohibited in the text and time period of the Torah.

* Rabbi Jacob Milgrom says that, YES, the Bible prohibits homosexual behavior. However, only in the land of Israel and only for males, and, possibly, only in certain interfamily relationships.

* Rabbi Gershon Steinberg-Caudill believes that the so-called "homosexual" act in the Bible that is prohibited is actually an act of HETEROSEXUAL SUBSTITUTION of a male in place of a female by a heterosexual male, and, possibly, may even need to be done in an idolatrous worship scenario.

Rabbi Steinberg-Caudill posits that even if Moses taught that God did command against homosexuality in the Torah (which Rabbi Steinberg-Caudill does not believe that God did), that command, like other commandments that Moses claimed as God given Torah commands, such as the command to kill the "stubborn and rebellious" son (Deuteronomy 21: 18-21), the rabbis negated totally a century after the beginning of the Christian era. The Talmudic rabbis declared that God did not say such a command through Moses. Similarly, any vestige of a supposed Torah prohibition against homosexuality also would need to be negated for this new day and age.
Jacob Milgrom is the foremost modern authority on the Book of Leviticus.

Bible scholars? Not one of them is a Catholic Pope and all four have rejected Christ.

Now that reveals in whom you place your faith. In those who scholarly with buffoonery reject Christ.

Rabbi Steinburg is simply and basically saying that all who accept his buffoonery do not have to follow the 10 Commandments which were given to Moses. He is also saying that the Levitican laws given by God to Moses, do not apply and incest is okay, bestiality is okay, pedophilia okay and having sex with a woman on her perios are all okay.

Maybe, these Rabbis did not literally mean that homosexuality and only homosexuality is not a sin. Perhaps they are saying "do what thou wilt and that is the whole of the law"?

You are not a Catholic.

Homosexuality

Every human being is called to receive a gift of divine sonship, to become a child of God by grace. However, to receive this gift, we must reject sin, including homosexual behavior—that is, acts intended to arouse or stimulate a sexual response regarding a person of the same sex. The Catholic Church teaches that such acts are always violations of divine and natural law.

Homosexual desires, however, are not in themselves sinful. People are subject to a wide variety of sinful desires over which they have little direct control, but these do not become sinful until a person acts upon them, either by acting out the desire or by encouraging the desire and deliberately engaging in fantasies about acting it out. People tempted by homosexual desires, like people tempted by improper heterosexual desires, are not sinning until they act upon those desires in some manner.



Divine Law

The rejection of homosexual behavior that is found in the Old Testament is well known. In Genesis 19, two angels in disguise visit the city of Sodom and are offered hospitality and shelter by Lot. During the night, the men of Sodom demand that Lot hand over his guests for homosexual intercourse. Lot refuses, and the angels blind the men of Sodom. Lot and his household escape, and the town is destroyed by fire "because the outcry against its people has become great before the Lord" (Gen. 19:13).

Throughout history, Jewish and Christian scholars have recognized that one of the chief sins involved in God’s destruction of Sodom was its people’s homosexual behavior. But today, certain homosexual activists promote the idea that the sin of Sodom was merely a lack of hospitality. Although inhospitality is a sin, it is clearly the homosexual behavior of the Sodomites that is singled out for special criticism in the account of their city’s destruction. We must look to Scripture’s own interpretation of the sin of Sodom.

Jude 7 records that Sodom and Gomorrah "acted immorally and indulged in unnatural lust." Ezekiel says that Sodom committed "abominable things" (Ezek. 16:50), which could refer to homosexual and heterosexual acts of sin. Lot even offered his two virgin daughters in place of his guests, but the men of Sodom rejected the offer, preferring homosexual sex over heterosexual sex (Gen. 19:8–9). Ezekiel does allude to a lack of hospitality in saying that Sodom "did not aid the poor and needy" (Ezek. 16:49). So homosexual acts and a lack of hospitality both contributed to the destruction of Sodom, with the former being the far greater sin, the "abominable thing" that set off God’s wrath.

But the Sodom incident is not the only time the Old Testament deals with homosexuality. An explicit condemnation is found in the book of Leviticus: "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.... If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them" (Lev. 18:22, 20:13).

The book of Leviticus is not in the New Testament.
Jesus never said a word about homosexuals.

You are just a hater.
And, no, he is not saying that incest, bestiality, pedophilia, etc., are okay.

Guess you forgot that the decision to destroy those cities was already in place before that incident with the crowd happened?
The sin of those cities was inhospitality.

Jesus died so that we can be forgiven our sins

Sin is the breaking of Gods LAW..that is what 'sin' is.

All the above are sins.

The problem is that all men are sinners..

Because the problem is scripture tells us ' we are born in sin'

Because when God told Adam , if he ate from the tree, in that day he will surely die..

Adam died spiritually..he died to God..and all his descendants are his offspring..born to die.

Jesus come to deal with 'sin'

And forgiveness is ours on the basis of FAITH in Jesus Christ..and Jesus is also the LIFE.

Jesus is the mediator of a new covenant..whereby God promises to write his Laws in our hearts and minds...a new spirit , made alive to God again..reconciled and a making of us new..a new creation, the new man.

reconciling us back to God, putting the 'plug' back in, that Adam pulled out.
