It is God 's word. The son of God Jesus died for our sins so that we may repent and be forgiven. In the Heavenly Father 's eyes, this is a abomination disgust, filthy, dirty . Whether you think it is right or wrong, it is written that God finds it to his dislike. I think you could even say he hates the thought of same sex relationships. It is my opinion. For he shall be the judge in the end. God Help Us all!

I like Mike 's comment, he is absolutely right. This was written before Jesus became our ultimate sacrifice and died for our sins, and rose for our justification. Now dealing with the passage,Mathis clearly pints out that homosexuality is a sin. A sin is a sin, whether it is sex between a woman and a man before marriage, homosexual sin, lying, greed, and having false Gods. It 's all considered sin. And love thy neighbor simply means that we all should love each other with the Agape love that Jesus loved us all. Not to sleep with them.

IThe Bible is very clear to me..Do not question the words of GOD. He said it and I believe it. Keep the faith people.

Yahweh says it men do this thing they shall surely be put to death. I will not die this way.

If everyone would follow the blue print bible that has been set forth for us to use as our guide, then everything will be alright. I too agree that God word is true and he is a God that does not lie. Therefore homosexuality is clearly stated in this verse Leviticus 18 22 and I will follow God 's word. Simply stated! God 's Will is done and we need to get in line with His Will.


Doris's comment on 2014-10-01 23:38:26:

I too believe that God is being clear about homsexuality. It is a sin a detestable vile sin. We as a people of God must follow the word of God. So if He finds that life stile nasty then we as His children finds it nasty. No we are not judging you that judgement has already been set.


kanda's comment on 2014-09-22 05:07:39:

Think every part of that verse is clear ,why do people have to manipulate in their own way to Suit their preferencee


chris's comment on 2014-09-13 23:07:16:

"Don 't judge someone just because they sin differently than you!!! " I would rather people believe in the Bible in it 's entirety, than pick and choose what they believe is right and wrong. Either follow the Bible as a whole, or quit the hypocrisy of judging other people 's faults. The last time I check the 10 commandments, loving another person regardless of orientation was not on the list....


Summer's comment on 2014-09-06 20:55:54:

God will love you through every choice you make, and do will I. I may not approve of it and it may not be what God wanted you to do, but you still will be loved. God doesnt want for you to be with the same sex, but its your choice, you pay for the consequences. Judgements not going to be easy for you or anyone else, but its also no ones fault but your own. Dont let someone get to you, pray and God will handle them. Just believe that God is going to be with you through everything and trust that he will help you. He 's there when no one else is. When you feel as if you don 't belong. God put you there for a reason find out that reason and do what God wants you to do! I love ypu and God bless!


Therese's comment on 2014-09-05 21:54:13:

To the best of my knowledge, God gave us the 10 commandments and the Our Father, Men wrote the Bible. the words, language, and translation, have changed so much in the passed years, and centuries, and guess what, God has not changed, the prayer and 10 commandments have not changed so follow God and his commandments and say his prayer, and you can 't go wrong, and yes keep reading the Bible, but if there is something you don 't understand, pray about it and i promise you 'll get your answer, and also always treat people as you think God would would treat them, don 't judge, and if you feel they have a problem pray for them.


Amanda's comment on 2014-07-30 19:06:24:

God is not the author of confusion. Jesus did not die so we could live in sin. If you have been truly saved, you would see what an abomination homsexuality is, for many reasons. Another is we are to flee fornication as it like homosexuality defiles our temple. Homosexuality is a perversin, same as ** or pedophilia. The reason you see no burning sacrifices on alter is because Jesus was the final sacrifice. He himself even said He did not come to do away with the law. ANY sin you are yoked to can be broken through the redeeming blood of our saviour.


Mike's comment on 2014-06-09 19:13:17:

I would like everyone to realize this is Leviticus. This is before Jesus died on the cross. I would like to point out also the reason for Jesus 's sacrifice to allow us to repent our sins. That is why nobody burns offerings and that is why you can be forgiven of your sins by allowing Jesus into your heart and accepting him as your savior. On top of that, many people act with surprising hatred towards gay people this is not His word. His teachings are of respect and love towards all fellow people, regardless of gender, skin, sexuality, or even the religion they practice. Jesus love.


Josh's comment on 2014-05-20 17:16:36:

God doesn 't mention blasphemy too often,so when he does take special attention.God says it is an abomination and I totally agree without any hesitation.Humans were designed in the beginning Adam and Eve with perfect physiology.Anyone who thinks that a ** was designed to be inserted into an anus is not paying attention.It 's not supposed to go in there!Fecies and only Fecies was designed to come out of an anus,this cannot be disputed.The woman 's ** was perfectly designed to accept a man 's **,this cannot be disputed.Any questions to this inarguable point?I didn 't think so.God never intended men laying with men and women laying with women.God considered this a disgusting act long ago as we should also.What bothers me about the Rainbow Coalition is that they somehow believe that we must absolutely know that they are gay.Who cares!I don 't go around town telling everyone that I see that "I am a heterosexual! " Nor do I announce it in political campaigns or on a radio or TV show! If you are out there and you are gay so freaking what!You are the ones who will be judged by God in the end,which is the second death and will burn in eternal fire forever.I hope you think it was worth it.And for whomever labels someone like me with this opinion as a "homophobe " you are mistaken.The definition of "phobia " is to be afraid of something.I am not afraid of Gay people,I simply do not like their Sin and what they stand for and others like me don 't like their garbage being shoved into our eyes and ears such as Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on TV gross.If you want be Gay,keep it to yourself.


Flaker's comment on 2014-03-05 20:42:47:

OK this is how I see it the bible is very clear on how we should live our life Homosexuality is sin not that I am judging anybody for thats not my job only the father himself can do that It is said that as a christian we as his followers are to preach the word and it speaks directly against it There are many people who manipulate the bible to benefit them for example people who have relations with a lot of women quote the old testament that speaks it is better to put your seed in the belly of a whore than to spend on the ground Well that is why its the old testament it s when the world was being repopulated The same goes for an eye for an eye That s why there is a new testament and as for that it tells us how to be christian like and from what my bible tells me any man who lies with a man or any woman who lies with another women with open their eyes in hell after their last breath I am taking what Jesus said and doing my best to follow it I do not hate anybody who chooses to live their on way neither does the lord even homosexuals but if you live in sin you will go to hell and it is a sin God Bless America and God Bless All Of You

It seems pretty clear cut to me God said what he meant and meant what he said

Honestly The Bible Has Many Ways Of Being Interpreted So I Don t See This As Being The One You should Take Literal


cornelius's comment on 2014-02-05 16:54:20:

God said it, I believe it, and that settles it for me.


Phil Davis's comment on 2013-11-18 18:51:08:

I really think you people who claim to believe should go do some good in the world. Go raise someone from the grave, go heal the million of people with cancer, go do any thing but sit around and judge other people. If you really believe the bible do some thing beside making up reasons why you can't do what the bible clearly states a believer can do.

James 5:14-15 "Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the Church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. And their prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make them well. And if they have committed sins, these will be forgiven."

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.

Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
