    Does this mean cousin marriage isn 't incest?
  • I would like everyone to realize this is Leviticus. This is before Jesus died on the cross. I would like to point out also the reason for Jesus 's sacrifice to allow us to repent our sins. That is why nobody burns offerings and that is why you can be forgiven of your sins by allowing Jesus into your heart and accepting him as your savior. On top of that, many people act with surprising hatred towards gay people this is not His word. His teachings are of respect and love towards all fellow people, regardless of gender, skin, sexuality, or even the religion they practice. Jesus love.
  • God doesn 't mention blasphemy too often,so when he does take special attention.God says it is an abomination and I totally agree without any hesitation.Humans were designed in the beginning Adam and Eve with perfect physiology.Anyone who thinks that a ** was designed to be inserted into an anus is not paying attention.It 's not supposed to go in there!Fecies and only Fecies was designed to come out of an anus,this cannot be disputed.The woman 's ** was perfectly designed to accept a man 's **,this cannot be disputed.Any questions to this inarguable point?I didn 't think so.God never intended men laying with men and women laying with women.God considered this a disgusting act long ago as we should also.What bothers me about the Rainbow Coalition is that they somehow believe that we must absolutely know that they are gay.Who cares!I don 't go around town telling everyone that I see that "I am a heterosexual! " Nor do I announce it in political campaigns or on a radio or TV show! If you are out there and you are gay so freaking what!You are the ones who will be judged by God in the end,which is the second death and will burn in eternal fire forever.I hope you think it was worth it.And for whomever labels someone like me with this opinion as a "homophobe " you are mistaken.The definition of "phobia " is to be afraid of something.I am not afraid of Gay people,I simply do not like their Sin and what they stand for and others like me don 't like their garbage being shoved into our eyes and ears such as Michael Sam kissing his boyfriend on TV gross.If you want be Gay,keep it to yourself.

    OK this is how I see it the bible is very clear on how we should live our life Homosexuality is sin not that I am judging anybody for thats not my job only the father himself can do that It is said that as a christian we as his followers are to preach the word and it speaks directly against it There are many people who manipulate the bible to benefit them for example people who have relations with a lot of women quote the old testament that speaks it is better to put your seed in the belly of a whore than to spend on the ground Well that is why its the old testament it s when the world was being repopulated The same goes for an eye for an eye That s why there is a new testament and as for that it tells us how to be christian like and from what my bible tells me any man who lies with a man or any woman who lies with another women with open their eyes in hell after their last breath I am taking what Jesus said and doing my best to follow it I do not hate anybody who chooses to live their on way neither does the lord even homosexuals but if you live in sin you will go to hell and it is a sin God Bless America and God Bless All Of You

    Honestly The Bible Has Many Ways Of Being Interpreted So I Don t See This As Being The One You should Take Literal
  • Ted Grant
    Ignoring the comedy in this chapter for the moment I must point out that these are clearly social conventions stated by a man for men except for verse 23 It is clear also that the Jews had been up to all sorts of naughty things and it was about time somebody stopped them carrying on like that
  • Cornelius for verse 22
    God said it, I believe it, and that settles it for me.
  • Dana Phil Talbot for verse 23
    This is talking about race mixing. Can you really mate with a goat?
  • BafanasNyumba
    We are not to judge, but if my brother or sister do one of this, I have a right to correct him/her, refering to the Word of God that: "Thus said the Lord God do not do this, do this". Also him/her has a right to correct me too. By correcting each other, will help us to repent on what we didn't that we where doing wrong. Note that we've got different weakness, therefore correcting me from my weakness might help me to be saved. If someone is correcting me, that particular person shows that he/she love and care about me as he/she love and care about him/herself. But leaving me continuing sinning, doesn't show love at all.

    Verse 22 is that which has alot to do with the current sociaty and christians have to be bold and help the totality living of all in accordance to the word of God.
  • Phil Davis for verse 22
    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!!!!!
  • Marina for verse 22
    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.
  • Marina for verse 22

    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?
  • Michael H for verse 22
    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.
  • Ejibunu Mercy for verse 22
    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
  • Eunice Rice for verse 22
    I firmly believe in God's word. It plainly states in scripture Leviticus 18:22 that homo***uality is wrong and every version of the Bible aside from KJV states exactly the same thing. Yes, God loves those that practice this but in HIS eyes sin is sin and they will be punished which could be eternal punishment. Even worse, is that those practicing homo***ual are stomping their feet to get our Constitution changed to fit their desires and our government is pretty close to doing exactly that and they are wrong as well. That is why so many Christians are against any amendments to our constitution. Our Nation was founded on Christian principals and our motto is "One Nation Under God" and we are to live by the biblical principles. That is why Christians are standing up and fighting against homo***ual lives because they stand for God!! Christians are not attacking people, only the sin of the people. God loves us all equally, and his Laws apply to ALL of us and we all will be treated equally when it comes to God's word.

    22Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
    29 For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be (CUT OFF) from among (THEIR PEOPLE.)
  • Cheryl for verse 3
    I think this verse is very pertinent for today because the mass media and the entertainment industry is bombarding us with occult immagery from the Egyptian area.
  • Given Of God for verse 22
    The bottom line is this. We (the called out one's “The Ecclesia”; God people) should not hate one who "chooses" to lead a homosexual lifestyle. For that is "not" for us to do. God makes it very clear, that it's an "abomination" to Him. As for how to deal with a person in ones family on this matter. There are several other scripture the one can use to aid in “fruitful” conversation on the matter; Matthew 18:15, Romans 1:24-32, etc.
  • Debra Kay
    God and the Word of God change not.
    Homosexuality is an abdomination, a sin.
    Many false preachers will go to the lake of fire for supporting gay marriages.
  • Edward Harris
    Verse 22. Says it all. Man can do whatever he wants for political or other expediencies but in the sight of Yahweh it is wrong, Choose you this day who you will serve! Man or El? Amen!!!
  • Lucien Jones for verse 22
    Same sex marriages? Is it the Lord’s way or man’s way? Let us look at Sound Doctrine Leviticus 16:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” God has put his standard and regulation when it comes to marriage, he simply talks about husband/wife relationship and has been clear when it comes to it. Many say God loves everyone and Many people try to justify that to lie with a man as a woman is really no problem, and they will try to get behind them heaven and earth to be able to legally get married. And yes it’s so true that God loves everyone; that is the whole reason he sent his Son Jesus Christ into this world John 3:16. But he also expects us first and most importantly to Know him and his Son, so we can get eternal life, not just chance his standard and end-up in hell. John 17:3.
  • Linda for verse 22
    I'm not perfect nor do I claim to be but I ask how could a person who claims to be a follower of God, condone same sex marriages? God does not hate the sinner, but yes He does hate the sin. As Jesus hung on the cross, He asked his Father "Why have You forsaken me?" It was and still is because God wants nothing to do with sin and does not associate with sin. So tell me: how can a so called messenger of God perform same sex marriages, when the Bible states it's an abomination?
  • Reese for verse 22
    I know that I as a Christian have broken innumerable amounts of the laws stated throughout Leviticus, but that does not mean that I am wrong to agree with God's clear statement on homosexuality.
  • Emlah
    Surely GOD is holy and Leviticus 18 is a clear indication that HE hates SEXUAL IMMORALITY. So let the church of CHRIST in four winds of the earth embrace HOLINESS. Amen.
  • Timothy Wayne George
    Leviticus 18:22 clearly says it is wrong for a man to be with a man as with a woman. Romans 1 talks about men, and women leaving the natural use of each other, and being given over to a reprobate mind. God created Adam, and said it is not good for him to be alone, so he took a rib from Adam and formed the woman, which is called Eve. Marriage is to between a man and a woman only, for procreation. If it were not for that, mankind would perish on the Earth. God knows what is best for us, and if you want to be blessed follow His plan for your life.

    I'm Baptist and I never read in the ONE and Only Bible (KJV) where a pastor/preacher had to have a degree from a Bible College. All that it says you need is the calling and annointing by the Holy Spirit.
  • Anonymous
