    Verse 3: The Israelites were not to imitate the ways and practices of the nations around them. This proved to be their downfall.

    "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." To all those who lie to us, and say that No one can keep the commandments; Which one in particular is it just impossible for you to keep? Is it any here, that warn we shall not do these abominations?

    V. 21 - "and thou shalt let not any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech ..... "; This is what Solomon ended up doing, after the great start he had. It bothered me for quite that Solomon was listed in Jesus genealogy, but then the led led me to the verses about - in a great house are the good and bad. I had read them before, but hadn't associated them with Jesus.
  • 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.
