Like other gay defenders and Bible bashers you have created your own personal false god to please yourself. Satan has "blinded" you. You are "perishing".
2 Corinthians 4:3-4 (NKJV)
3 But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4 whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.
Belief in Hell is not required for residency therein.
That you have to label the text from your religious document -- NKJV -- show that even those sharing similar beliefs are not in agreement what the words of the book you call the bible are, let alone mean.

I don't believe in a god, so how could it be a false god?

The problem with the religious self-righteous amongst us, is that you need to live in the real world now.

I don't believe that ones own feelings of righteousness, and condemnation of others will serve them any better either. Look at your own life, look into your own heart, are you without sin?

The "real world" is falling apart and nobody can save you but the living God of the Bible.

The Bible reveals the hearts of all of us. It's not difficult to identify rotten fruits. Believing the Bible is not 'rotten fruit'.

The bible states that you should stone homosexuals in the same verse that is often used to condemn us.

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

Do you believe homosexuality should be a death penalty offense?

You are referring to the Law of Moses. Christians are not under the Law of Moses.

However christians use it to condemn us? I don't understand. Do you believe that all Americans should be forced to live under Christian law whether they believe as you or do not?

Then why did God command that homosexuals be executed?
"an abomination"
Leviticus 20:13 (NKJV)
13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
So, by posting this babble, you want to murder to be a true follower of the bible???

The NT also condemns gays to Hell. People cannot be forced to be Christians.

So what makes you think you have the right to force your christian BS on anyone else. The NT was a covenant for Chritians only, right? You know, like the OT was a covenant for the Jews only.

Simply showing how God feels about being gay.

He will soon, but in His mercy He is still offering mercy to some. But His mercy will soon end upon the wicked.

You just posted you're not under the laws of Moses, but yet you keep posting Leviticus and the executions of people written by the mind of a serial killer, not a god.

Not what I asked. Do you support forcing people to live by Christian law?
