Original Sin

I would like to readers you what
The Jesus said about homosexuality...
To like to, truths nevi?
said anything about it.
media :
Tns is an enormous chain and I' m sorry. but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the
Hebrews needed to tallow in order to be righteous. to atone tor the
sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven., That is also
why they were required In maize sacrifices, because it was can or
the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology. when Jesus came from Heaven, it
was for the express purpose of himself on the prose so
that our sins may be forgiven- His was supposed to be the
ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations
and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he
said "it is finished" when he died on the cross, That is why Christians
don' t have to circumcise their sons {goers covenant with Jacob}. that
is why they don' t have to perform animal sacrifice. or grow out their
lonelycats. or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
when you more Leviticus as law and say they are rules we
must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do.
what you are really saying. as a Christian. is that Christ' s sacrifice on
the cross was in valid. He died in vain because you believe we are will
beholden to the any laws. Thai is what you, a good
Christian. are saying to your god and his son. that their plan for your
salvation wasn' t good enough tor you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because
the implications of your actions go a lot deeper man you think.
This is a theological point that doesn' t some up often enough.

Keep in mind that what is given above is one interpretation of the bible and all interpretations are valid. The interpretations of our current day are no more biblically sound than those from a thousand years ago, but it's a matter of which verses you interpret as significant and which ones you dismiss as off-topic.

Matthew 5:17-20 goo.gl/hOMrDX The Law of God given to Moses is still valid and will remain so until both heaven and earth are gone. Anyone who breaks even the smallest of these commandments might as well have broken them all. In you want to get into heaven, your adherence must dwarf those of the Pharisees, who are notorious for their rigorous adherence.

Of course, all this can be re-interpreted countless ways, but that's just the point. It's a fallacy to believe that people get their morality from the bible; it's simply not true. Rather, people use the bible to justify the resolutions they already had.

Colbert is right, Jesus didn't talk about homosexuality (in fact, some scholars assert than he himself was gay goo.gl/7mJv8N ). However, Paul, to whom the bulk of the writings of the New Testament are attributed, did goo.gl/BX6mq2 .

But what does this have any significance? No, because getting down to brass tacks, it is easier to justify polygamy with the bible than homosexuality, yet it seems a unanimous stance among Christians that it's wrong. Maybe one day we'll see polygamy pride gain as much fervor as gay pride has today.

The thing I want the reader to take away is this: at best, the bible is a source of comfort to escape the harsh realities of life (no afterlife, no cosmic justice or purpose, no one is listening) and at worst, it is a tool used to justify evil doctrines that could not be otherwise justified. If you want to live a moral life, just do it. The only spiritual absolution you need is from yourself. And don't fear death, but fear the life not lived.

Christians protesting homosexuality say it is a sin to be gay because Levictus 18:22 states ''Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.'' And as OP says, Jesus sacrificed himself to free us from the laws of Levictus, which means they are laws that are not followed anymore, making these protesters points completely invalid. hope this helps, i'm really bad at explaining things

This is a good way to explain it.

I always kinda chalked it up to the fact it's a very outdated rule in the bible, but it had it's place. If I was a god, and I needed humans to reproduce and grow, it would make sense why homosexuality would be restricted. But than there's things such as the 10 commandments, which became outdated with Jesus's rule of 'Love'. It's simply another rule/guide that is no longer needed, but people cling to it because no one officially said 'This isn't true anymore'.

Sadly, the bible is to be interoperated. 'If a man is to lie with another man, he is to be stoned'.

Does that say "Homosexually requires a stoning" to you? Because to me it says " ****** don't tell lies ta ya brothers or else we gun throw stones at ya ugly dawg face, ****** "

Here's a better idea:   
"Don't be a dick unless it's really funny"   
Problem solved.

Paul says in Romans 6:15 "What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? By no means!" This pretty clearly states we should still follow the old laws. Not trying to cause a ********* but that argument is invalid.

Sorry but according to the Jesus himself he did not come to change the law of the Old Testament. in Mathew 5:17 Jesus said "Do not think that I came to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I did not come to abolish but to fulfill."

Also while Jesus did not have anything to say about it, the Bible does.
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. -- Lev.20:13

I'm not saying it is wrong. I'm just saying the Bible does condemn it. Nothing to say about lesbians though so...

Reading the previous and next couple verses actually makes it pretty clear he is referring to the old law of the old testament.

ROMANS 1:26-27
For this reason [idolatry] God gave them up to passions of dishonor; for even their females exchanged the natural use for that which is contrary to nature, and likewise also the males, having left the natural use of the female, were inflamed by their lust for one another, males with males, committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was fitting for their error.

1 Chor. 6:9-10
Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality

Oh I'm sorry were all those from NEW TESTAMENT?

Both of which take place AFTER the crucifixion. Thus that is humans trying to cling to the old ways. Besides Leviticus has been shown historically to be the Pharisees' laws, whom Jesus opposed as unjust and self serving all the time.
