2 Againe, thou shalt say to the children of Israel; whosoeuer he be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that soiourne in Israel, that giueth any of his seed vnto Molech, he shall surely be put to death: the people of the land shall stone him with stones.
6 ∂ And the soule that turneth after such as haue familiar spirits, and after wizards, to goe a whoring after them, I will euen set my face against that soule, and will cut him off from among his people.
17 And if a man shall take his sister, his fathers daughter, or his mothers daughter, and see her nakednesse, and she see his nakednesse, it is a wicked thing, and they shall bee cut off in the sight of their people: he hath vncouered his sisters nakednesse, he shall beare his iniquitie.
18 And if a man shall lie with a woman hauing her sickenesse, and shal vncouer her nakednesse: he hath discouered her fountaine, and she hath vncouered the fountaine of her blood: and both of them shall bee cut off from among their people.
24 But I haue said vnto you, Yee shall inherit their land, and I will giue it vnto you, to possesse it, a land that floweth with milke and hony: I am the Lord your God, which haue separated you from other people.
25 Ye shall therefore put difference betweene cleane beasts, and vncleane, and betweene vncleane foules, and cleane: & ye shall not make your soules abominable by beast or by foule, or by any maner of liuing thing, that creepeth on the ground, which I haue separated from you as vncleane.

The key word here is mankind . It does not mention man (singular). Mankind is a general term for "all humans"both male and female. It sounds to me like he doesn't want orgies.

@ Martha Prinecss. i agree with you. the fact that God loves us all does not mean we must do what we love to do but we must do what He loves us to do. Remember He is God who does not contractdict Himself. He does not change,in other words if He says: if a man sleeps with another man is wrong. He won't wake up tomoro and say now its right. we must be careful not to do things which He consider them wrong and justify them as right.

@ Anonymous...you are correct in that the Most High God loves us all equally, but that does not mean He agrees with the lifestyle we choose. Whether we choose to be promiscuous, commit adultery/fornication or choose a same sex partner it does not change God's law. Please read Romans chapter 1.
Romans 1:24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

What if they truly have found love for the same sex? Then what? God loves all equal regardless of the sin and the depths it may have on anyone. If God himself didn't want homosexuality or homosexuals then he wouldn't have put the first people to come up with this logic in their own minds. It takes two to tango and one to sin. But I'm seriously confused on the topic and need some words of wisdom.

To be honest, this sounds like the laws you would put into place to grow a nation. If done right, you can keep inbreeding low, grow a strong moral community from certain blood lines, and have a way to make sure your population grows. At this time the Israelite were constantly at war and were always in trouble. They needed people. Men to fight, women to help in the fields and prepare the food, and children to do the chores. I could be misreading it, but seems God was just trying to create a large, strong, united community.

We can pick our sides and positions and that is all well and good. But we cannot stop there. While we believe homosexuality is an abomination, those loved ones and friends need to repeatedly hear this from us. Remember that WE are placed in their lives to point this out - to point them to everlasting life with Christ. Do we have any fight left in us? Do we wish to SAVE them or to just pick a side? At the end time - our end time and theirs - the chasm will be too great, the separation too far to do anything about it. I am Michael and I call each of you into action. Fight as if you were saving someone's life; in fact you are saving their souls!

It is what it is, after all, mankind tend to twist the Lordís words to suit themselves to their own deceptive satisfaction. The Lordís words are plain and simple to understand.
