So, the stuff in Leviticus was only intended to be for the Jewish nation and not intended for the Christian, either?

It says "circle", circles are flat. And it also says the heavens are like a tent. And they are not. They are almost 100% empty space.
The original Hebrew was the word for round.

Silly child, if the Bible condemned homosexuality, then HOW could it turn around and CELEBRATE the homosexual marriage of David and Johnathan?
Your ignorance comes from not understanding that in the Hebrew, Leviticus is clearly talking about acts between a man and a (male) temple prostitute - a priest of a foreign Goddess of fertility. The word translated as "abomination" in fact refers to actions that are forbidden because they are part of the worship of foreign Gods.
The best example that I can give is from Ezekiel, where it calls weeping an abomination. Now, obviously, there is nothing sinful about weeping, but the CONTEXT of the statement shows that the weeping in question is being done as part of the annual worship of the death (and subsequent resurrection) of the God Tammuz.
Of course, it is also Ezekiel that proves that the sin of Sodom had NOTHING to do with homosexuality.
That is bologna. There was no mention of any sexual copulation by the two and it depicted the sorrow expressed by David over the prospect that his best friend would have to die in order for David to become King as Jonathan was the rightful heir to the throne. The exchange of garments was symbolic of the line of succession leaving the house of Saul and being replaced by the line of David. It is also interesting that David after hearing of Jonathan's death called him Jonathan my brother and not Jonathan my love.

If you thing you can be a practicing Christain and a practicing homosexual at the same time, I will laugh in your face.

Laugh away. YOU do not determine who is and who is not a "christian." Your puritanic white-washing of the story of David and Jonathan makes me LAUGH IN YOUR FACE.

There is no such thing as a "practicing homosexual", Dear. Natural God-given traits really don't need practice. They just ARE.

And, since you are not God, you don't get to read the hearts and souls of others. You can not see the love another has for their creator, and judge the depth of their faith.

Claiming to do so is blasphemy.

A Christian follows what Jesus and the apostles actually taught and not what one mistakenly thought Jesus stood for, and the poster in question had no clue as to what Jesus actually stood for.

There was no word in the ancient Hebrew language for sphere which required that they use the Hebrew word "chuwg" (meaning round) to denote a sphere.

Can we spare the technical dissection of the human language and just stick to the point I made. The Bible calls the one who says he loves God without following His commandments a liar.

There is no specific word for sphere in the Hebrew language. A sphere would be denoted by the Hebrew word for round.

What makes you think you can get away with lying? Dur means ball or sphere. It is used in Isaiah 22:18.

Dur is also used in the Bible to denote being encircled which has nothing to do with being spherical. Better luck next time!

Romans 1:28 and Leviticus 18:22. There was no ancient Greek or Hebrew word for homosexuality, so they had to described the act rather than give a name to it.

A ball isn't spherical? Since when?

And since when are YOU an expert in Hebrew, Miss Shiksa??

Is 22:18 He will surely violently turn and toss thee like a ball into a large country: there shalt thou die, and there the chariots of thy glory shall be the shame of thy lord's house.

So don't even TRY to say there is no Hebrew word for sphere. A ball is ALWAYS a sphere. A circle NEVER is.

Those are commandments, are they? Romans? Really? A commandment in Romans?

Don't even START with Leviticus, you big phony.

Since the rest of the verse describes the heavens as being like a tent, it's clear they thought the earth was flat, and the heavens were, well, like tent.
