    Romans 1:26-27 (tap on this link)

    The whole Book of Romans describes our present day realities of what we see happening all around us.

    To choose to deny Gods existence shows that people are reprobate in their minds and hearts. Homosexuals where it says, "it's not meet", points to illness of their bodies.
  • Nancy Wooten on Leviticus 20:13
    In Leviticus chapter 20 verse 13 it says if if a man lies with another man that it is an abomination and I believe that means homosexuals but other people are telling people that it means child molesters. Am I wrong is it not talking about homosexuals please tell me what it means.
  • Adam - in Reply on Leviticus 20:13
    Hello, yes, it means all homosexuality is a sin, evil, and unnatural and the punishment is death. Fortunately Jesus died to forgive all that all have an opportunity to go to heaven.

    Has our country is being attacked by the demoms of Satan. Our we to just sit back and watch or stand up for jesus i stand for jesus. But how do we try and kmow the right way to address those against us.
  • Johnny Martinez - in Reply on Leviticus 20:13
    It is NOT talking about child molesters. The scripture says they are BOTH committing an abomination. Why would God charge a child with sin, if it was against his will? It is talking about two men who both know what they are doing. And it is a sin
  • Greg on Leviticus 20:13
    Being born again is not a get out of Jail Free card. the thing is believing Jesus Died for our sins is the start, but accepting what he taught an trying to live the way he taught, through his spirit in you.. how can we grow in fruits of the spirit if we continue in the same sin overran over again. faith without works is dead..
  • Delray on Leviticus 20:13
    As a Christian struggling with this particular sin, I STAND for God 's word. He says what He means He means what He says!!! POINT BLANK
