Bible commentary

Discussion for Leviticus 18:22

  • It is God 's word. The son of God Jesus died for our sins so that we may repent and be forgiven. In the Heavenly Father 's eyes, this is a abomination disgust, filthy, dirty . Whether you think it is right or wrong, it is written that God finds it to his dislike. I think you could even say he hates the thought of same sex relationships. It is my opinion. For he shall be the judge in the end. God Help Us all!
  • 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.
  • 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.
