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.
22Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

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.
Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.

IThe Bible is very clear to me..Do not question the words of GOD. He said it and I believe it. Keep the faith people.

The Bible to me seems to be a lot about, "God 's " Laws, "Jesus ' " sacrifice for us and how we are supposed to live in order to reach that everlasting life he promised if we followed his rules. Everyone has to find him for themselves, he gave us "Free Will " so you can decide for yourselves where you want to be in your after life. Some people don 't care, that 's their business. We are in this world but we don 't have to be of it. It 's about choices, I treat others as I want to be treated. We can only pray for those who we want to be saved, but they have to also pray for themselves. I may not agree with the things that man has conveniently chose to initiate in this world, but that 's what he has to deal with in the end time. Me, I want to live Eternally in one of the places that "God " has prepared for me, and I teach my children the same values and principles that I live by. We were all born into Sin, it 's when you find out the Truth, that you become free. I have to say so far this book has never lied all that it has prophesized has come true. These are the "End Day 's. Revelation is here! People had better read the writing on the proverbial wall. Whatever you believe, "Be "Blessed ".

I am willing to accept the biblical verse as it is written. Regardless of what version of the Bible you read, the message is the same. God alone can judge the individuals who practice homosexuality, we need not worry ourselves over their sins, whether or not they see the Kingdom of Heaven is up to God. Just keep the topic out of my personal space, that is MY unalienable right. The Bible is clear regardless.
