3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances.
17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness.

Matthew Henry's Leviticus Chapter 18 Bible commentary...
Unlawful marriages and fleshly lusts.
- Here is a law against all conformity to the corrupt usages of the heathen. Also laws against incest, against brutal lusts, and barbarous idolatries; and the enforcement of these laws from the ruin of the Canaanites. God here gives moral precepts. Close and constant adherence to God's ordinances is the most effectual preservative from gross sin. The grace of God only will secure us; that grace is to be expected only in the use of the means of grace. Nor does He ever leave any to their hearts' lusts, till they have left him and his services.

God and the Word of God change not.
Homosexuality is an abdomination, a sin.
Many false preachers will go to the lake of fire for supporting gay marriages.

Verse 22. Says it all. Man can do whatever he wants for political or other expediencies but in the sight of Yahweh it is wrong, Choose you this day who you will serve! Man or El? Amen!!!

Same sex marriages? Is it the Lordís way or manís way? Let us look at Sound Doctrine Leviticus 16:22 ďThou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.Ē 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 itís 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?

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.

Surely GOD is holy and Leviticus 18 is a clear indication that HE hates SEXUAL IMMORALITY. So let the church of CHRIST in four winds of the earth embrace HOLINESS. Amen.

Leviticus 18:22 clearly says it is wrong for a man to be with a man as with a woman. Romans 1 talks about men, and women leaving the natural use of each other, and being given over to a reprobate mind. God created Adam, and said it is not good for him to be alone, so he took a rib from Adam and formed the woman, which is called Eve. Marriage is to between a man and a woman only, for procreation. If it were not for that, mankind would perish on the Earth. God knows what is best for us, and if you want to be blessed follow His plan for your life.
