The Bible is the Authoritative word of God. For all those that know everything but really know nothing. There is a day of Judgement.

THE WORD OF GOD has proven itself to the fullest What we see happening is clearly written in the Bible When we say that the gay life is an abomination according to the word of God we find so many people trying to justify the life style by saying the Bible isn t real or we have people that try to understand it from a carnal non believers mind It s sad but true that theses things must come to pass as the Bible said they would GAY LIFE STYLES GOES AGAINST the creative act that God put in place We need more true born again believers to stand up and say yes I am intolerant to anything that will cause you to go to hell It s our Job to cry loud and spare not God s word has been here long before we have and it has not lost it s power when lived according to our faith Yes all sin is sin on the other hand Men having sex with other men leaving the natural use of the woman which God created is a out right ABOMINATION

God made man and women for procreation the question is can marriage of man and man fullfil this purpose Let us not deceive ourselves this union negates the natural purpose of creation It is nothing than sodomy and fragrant abuse of nature take it or reject at your own peril

This argument only holds true if you believe the bible is the word of God Which it is not

The world is lost and they have tried to divert from the truth. People are defending same sex marriages as if it was God's plan. May God help his people to stand firm against it.

We all know stories were orated over time and finally binded into the Bible. Therefore this entire book is interpretation and has been and will continue to be taken out of context. Recompence (Romans 1:27) is not even a word anymore! But yet and still we dame, we judge, and ridicule people everyday because the way they choose to live their lives. Leave it to GOD to judge because at the end of the day, not anyone of you or anyone else can verify or prove that anything mentioned in the Bible or interpreted to be in the Bible has sent anyone to hell or purgatory. People are so willing to follow the masses. Get your life and know that you too shall be judged. Will YOU go to HEAVEN or HELL because as the Bible makes clear, SIN is SIN!

My Thoughts: For it is written, this thing is an act of abomination to God, this is there own evil thoughts, lustful minds, evil deeds. Although God loves them, he hate their evil ways. THE ONLY WAY FOR THEM TO BE SAVED FROM THIS UNNATURALNESS IS TO BE BORN AGAIN. Take off the old man putting on the new. Becoming Christ-like, it will no longer be you, but Christ in you who will strengthen you to do and become righteous being. AMEN!!

re: William Schuler's comment on 2012-02-02....
Please read the previous verse (Romans 1:27) which DOES speak of women. You can argue away the truth if you don't have a love for it and a true desire to love and please God but rather a to please your flesh. But this does not change the truth or God, just your judgement on that final day! Please also read 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12.

“Putting aside fears, prejudices, resentments and hatreds and showing Christian love and compassion for all people is the mark of true children of God. Anger, hatred, harsh words, retaliation and revenge only result in more of the same.”
Only love can conquer evil (Romans 12:17-21).

I agree with what God says! Whatever he says that settles it!!! It’s not what man says, think or feel that matters it’s what he (God) says. Heaven and earth shall pass away but the word of God shall stand!!!

This is a curse of disobedience. We need to learn from this.
Ed's comment on 2012-11-07 09:11:30:
It is what is evil is! And, again God, our creator, because it was Adam and Eve; God made a woman out of Adam’s rib, He never made another man out of it.
Delia's comment on 2012-09-08 09:35:34:
There is a reward for good and for evil. What is received is based upon what is put out. Good for good and evil for evil. The sad thing is that in our modern minds, it is okay to have unnatural affections for the same sex. It is now celebrated on our televisions.

"and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet". Is this a reference to aids ?

It doesn't say "women with women" in the verse. It merely says "men with men" and what is "unseemly" is that which they WORK.
