Discussion for Leviticus 20

  • Fabian Fagan for verse 13
    The Bible teaches us to love one a other, and the Bible also doesn 't sugar coat the truth. To the homosexual, I love them, but I despise their ways. No one is born a homosexual. It 's most definitely a choice. The devil is at work deceiving many into believing that homosexuality is a born trait when it is not. Sin is sin.
  • It is what it is . Man with women We should love as Jesus loves us. We all have sinned and as a child of Christ we have to fight the spiritual fight of the fresh. Turn away from ALL sin. Pray, constantly because the devil is wanting our souls.
  • The Bible is the truth and living word of God. If you find this passage offensive then maybe you should check your spiritual walk with God. We do not advocate putting people to death, but Lev 20 13 states clearly that homosexuality is a sin.. these people have the opportunity to repent and change their lifestyle like anyone else. We must pray for them and live them so they can come to Christ...

    oh my I cant blv this was in my bible , we are at war with the same kind of poor thinking as our Christian founders believed in
  • Adam
    It speaks to men who break The Law. That is to say, the offender is he who trespasses against The Law God 's law, his judgements, statutes, commandments For example Exodus 22 1 If a man shall steal an ox, or a sheep, and kill it, or sell it, OR A LAWNMOWER he shall restore five oxen for an ox, and four sheep for a sheep, LAWNMOWERS FOR A LAWNMOWER. It is not for a man to draft the relief he wants for God has already laid down the law, the relief, the remedy as concerns a breach of The Law by a wrongdoer. Men who turn to laws of a nation for relief or redress offend the Ten Commandments, mainly 1 and 2 for nations, Canada, U.S.A, are graven images. Some rely on Romans, obey the governing authorities and ordinances of man thinking that means worldly government when God wrote 127 times obey my commandments. Governments send our children to war to kill and God said, thou shalt not kill. Let he who will be deceived be deceived...
  • Emmanuel Stephen
    All these commandment are for the benefit of mankind. If we do them and follow as our lord has commanded it shall be well with us. Otherwise what will a man benefit from the practices of homosexual ? There is a way that seems right to a man but the end is catastrophe and destruction. Say No to homosexual , say No to lesbianism
