Leviticus Chapter 18
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.

I have read the part about not marking the body a million times. My boyfriends wants to get a tattoo but how should I explain to him that the bible says not to?

Does this mean cousin marriage isn 't incest?

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.

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.

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

Honestly The Bible Has Many Ways Of Being Interpreted So I Don t See This As Being The One You should Take Literal
Ted Grant's Leviticus Chapter 18 comment on 2/15/2014, 9:04am...
Ignoring the comedy in this chapter for the moment I must point out that these are clearly social conventions stated by a man for men except for verse 23 It is clear also that the Jews had been up to all sorts of naughty things and it was about time somebody stopped them carrying on like that
