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.

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 really think you people who claim to believe should go do some good in the world. Go raise someone from the grave, go heal the million of people with cancer, go do any thing but sit around and judge other people. If you really believe the bible do some thing beside making up reasons why you can't do what the bible clearly states a believer can do.
James 5:14-15 "Are any among you sick? They should call for the elders of the Church and have them pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord. And their prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make them well. And if they have committed sins, these will be forgiven."
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Mark 16:17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

It is unfortunate that our society has deteriolate like this. The Bible said Romans 1;28 For those that refuse to retain God in thier knowledge, He gave them over to a roprobate mind to do those things which are not convinent. verse 29- 32 As a list of all the abomination that have defied our land . (2 thess 2 ; 10 .11 For the decieveableness of their heart ...... He will send them STRONG delusion.....)Men. SIN is inheret in us. it is not easy and you cant do it on your own YOU NEED JESUS CHRIST Repentance is of the Lord Pual wrote to the philipians (I can do all thins through CHRIST which strenghtened ME 4 ;13) Jesus said (I am the vine and you are the branches) The branches cant succeed without the vine so are we Christain. The world is coming to an END. REPENT Isaiah 1;18 .19 No matter what!!!!!

God also talks about sacrificing animals on an alter as repentence for sin, I don't se alters with burning flesh in every yard and since we are all imperfect and all sinners there should be a lot burning going on.

You don't have to understand, why your brother is gay, beleive me, it is not a choice. Most people would not intentionally chose a path that makes their lives harder or hurt his/her family (when they are close like you mentioned). I do beleive the bible says God is supposed to do the judging, not us. My son came out when he was 15, I knew he was as young as 8 yrs old and I told his Dad to prepare himself for the day he came to us about it. He is not trying to hurt you or your family, he probably feels terrible because he feels like he has let you all down somehow. Being gay doesn't make him any less of a person, he needs to know that no matter what, you love and care for him. You don't have to like that he is gay but make sure he knows you still love him especially if he is young he may be very vulnerable and feel very alone. He revealed thEis to you all in hopes you would not reject him. Remember if God brings you to it he will bring you through it, ever think this is a test for you and your parents to see if you follow the golden rule?

I would just like to understand why we christians are so worked up about this ONE Leviticus verse. As a christian I am told this verse is very important, but I am not told that Leviticus 12, 13, or 15 (those whole chapters) are important. Why don't I have to follow those anymore but I have to follow this one? Why is this word of God more important than those other ones? Just to be clear... I understand the other verses in this chapter (no "nakedness" with family). But that does bring up a good point, why the wording change. Am I to believe it is ok to have "nakedness" with men as I would with women? I just don't understand.

When i first came across this verse in my Bible, i was scared beyond words, never knew such could also be in the Bible. I pray the Lord will not wipe off this generation like He did for Sodom and Gomorrah, amen
