The bottom line is this. We (the called out one's “The Ecclesia”; God people) should not hate one who "chooses" to lead a homosexual lifestyle. For that is "not" for us to do. God makes it very clear, that it's an "abomination" to Him. As for how to deal with a person in ones family on this matter. There are several other scripture the one can use to aid in “fruitful” conversation on the matter; Matthew 18:15, Romans 1:24-32, etc.

Same sex marriages? Is it the Lord’s way or man’s way? Let us look at Sound Doctrine Leviticus 16:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” God has put his standard and regulation when it comes to marriage, he simply talks about husband/wife relationship and has been clear when it comes to it. Many say God loves everyone and Many people try to justify that to lie with a man as a woman is really no problem, and they will try to get behind them heaven and earth to be able to legally get married. And yes it’s so true that God loves everyone; that is the whole reason he sent his Son Jesus Christ into this world John 3:16. But he also expects us first and most importantly to Know him and his Son, so we can get eternal life, not just chance his standard and end-up in hell. John 17:3.

I'm not perfect nor do I claim to be but I ask how could a person who claims to be a follower of God, condone same sex marriages? God does not hate the sinner, but yes He does hate the sin. As Jesus hung on the cross, He asked his Father "Why have You forsaken me?" It was and still is because God wants nothing to do with sin and does not associate with sin. So tell me: how can a so called messenger of God perform same sex marriages, when the Bible states it's an abomination?

It is important to keep the 1611 version of the Bible as it was written. People rely on the word of God to tell them what sin is so that God can change them to make them more like him. For me, 1 Corinthians 7:11 was an eye opener. I had to learn the "don't touch me" rule to keep me out of sin in dating a man. I am obeying God now that I am single and that scripture showed me the boundary I had to live by so I wouldn't fall into sin. Thank God for his word!

@Reesse and Casey,
I agree with your (Reesse’s) comment. Casey no person on this earth is without sin. For if so let that person cast the first stone any takers? Because the only person that was sinless is now in heaven. Seated next to the father. So Casey laugh at us for I'm sure you are both; no human has not sinned, we all have but by the grace of God and Jesus blood, we are heal. God does not indeed hate gay people and I wish some Christians will stop saying that, because that tells me you are not Christian like. Repentance is what saves us from sin I have been through the sinful lust. God loves us including the lost because they are just that but to call us out is insane. You know we sin but we make a repentance for it in the coming days, we will be judged. According to how one lived his/her life if you're gay you automatically go to hell. Same as suicidal and no believers along with the normal sinful people. But if you are not gay but just sinned and there was enough good on your page in the book of light, you get to go to heaven. If there's a lot of sin on your page with no good really balancing out hell is your new home. For gay people, suciduals, and non believers it’s automatically a one trip to hell, once being judged. I suggest you read your bible. @Jessica, I will pray for you.

I know that I as a Christian have broken innumerable amounts of the laws stated throughout Leviticus, but that does not mean that I am wrong to agree with God's clear statement on homosexuality.

God's Word is life and health (medicine) to all flesh. His yoke is easy. Praise Him. Praise Him.

I just found out that my brother is gay. It's very hard for me and my family to understand because we were always religious and brought up knowing that being with another person of the same sex is wrong. We have always based everything we do on the KJV of the bible and now that he wants to be gay he is trying to tell us that this verson may not be right. Please pray for my brother and my family. We all need it so much.

HaHa it seems a little strange that you would say if you could find a women,why did'nt you say a man who does'nt want to have sex,because you never know.Do you have any children yet,because God wants us to muiltiple threw sex with your husband,and if not that way then you can adopt, either way you will still be multipling and that is Gods plan,so either you believe in the lord or you dont and it seems like you dont or you would not EVER consitter being with the same sex let alone speak the words out loud or put it on a website I'm going to need you to stay focused and stop trying to be slick and cross over to play for the other team.
Casey's comment on 2011-08-03 06:02:35:
Have you read the rest of Leviticus? It points out a lot of "sins" that I am sure all of you are guilty of committing. If this is your "proof" that homosexuality is sinful, you need to take a course on logic.

Haha's comment on 2011-05-22 12:11:00:
This is how I feel. I do not like sex at all. I can go for the rest of my life without it. So, I'f I found a lady and she felt the same way, what's wrong with that? I mean there would be no sex what so ever. I have been with men and now married at the moment. I hate having sex! Call me crazy if you want lol!!! I really feel if I found a lady that thinks as I do, I would be so much more happy. Please someone let me know your thought's on this please. I mean there would be love for eachother, but no urge for sex.
Josh's comment on 2011-04-18 07:56:34:
I really wish more people would read this passage. It's clear and simple: God says homosexuality is sinful. However, God does not hate the sinner. He hates the sin.
Randy's comment on 2010-03-27 01:30:25:
God's word is plain and needs no addition or subtraction. God hates sin but not the sinner as seen in John 3:16.
