Where do we stand

Sodomy

Is it a sin for a man to marry a fellow man?

And God decided to get man a partner so he created woman, he did not create another man therefore it is a sin punishable by death for a man to have sexual intercourse with a fellow man.It is Sodomy.

God destroyed an entire nation because of Sodomy, he has not destroyed any man because of adultery.

Islam:

The eleventh sin is sodomy or homosexual.

And the person who allows another to mount him from behind to commit sodomy, then Allah puts him on the fridge of hell


Christianity:

If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (NKJ, Leviticus 20:13)


Same sex wedding.

Where do we stand?

I do not in anyway mean any offense but this article was inspired by my quest to understand exactly where we stand because i have heard the Priest so many times talked about adultery,fornication,murder,lies and he preaches for repentance from such acts yet the same priest had people of same sex married.

The Church which i know is the one meant to save people and not the one meant to bless the means of people's damnation.

Marriage as far as we all know is a fundamental social institution that exist not to satisfy the emotions of two individuals but for the greater good of the Society and Families.Marriage is a unit of life and not a unit of death.

Where do we stand

It is now clear that Christianity and Islam has the same stance regarding Homosexual.So why is it that the same Priest who stood in the pulpit and told me how bad it is to kidnap someone,to lie, to fight and to commit adultery is the same man who performed the marriage of a man and a fellow man?

You see, i have heard so much about Gay and Lesbian rights though i do not discriminate or fail to respect others choices, ways of life and belief but if the Law of God clearly states that this act is evil and punishable by death,why then do we create legislation to make it acceptable as a legal way of life?

But i know that no matter what this Society we all see ourselves in will legislate to accommodate same sex marriage, the law of God clearly states that a marriage of such is not godly.

And Jesus said;

What comes out of you is what defiles you. For from within your heart comes evil thoughts,Sexual Immorality,Theft,Murder,Adultery,Greed,Malice,Slander,Arrogance.

The old testament states death to any of the crimes above.


WHERE DO WE STAND?

There is no mention of same sex marriage in the Bible but it is clearly mentioned n the old and new testaments that an act of sexual immorality is a sin.


Acceptance

You do well says our Lord, it is better for you to atone the fulfillment of the royal law; "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Do not Judge others or you too will be judged for in the same way you judge others, you will be judged and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

God loves each of us the way we are and no matter how fury you believe his wrath is so is his compassion.

Live and let live therefore we must accept each other no matter our sexual orientations because though it is a sin to adopt homosexual yet it is not an unforgiven sin.Therefore, the same redemption which we all seek and is available to all the kidnappers,liars,fornicators,idolaters,thieves and every other sinner is also available to homosexuals.


Where do we stand-I am a human like you

You have to love me just the way i am

I love you as you are and i feel better this way

You have to let me be so why don't you hear my heart

My skin means nothing much and i am still your son

I am still your dear brother and have not changed

god will be the judge, my brother and you are right the place that was destroyed was sodom. destroyed by the wrath of god for the crime of sodomy. who are we to judge another for we are mere mortals put on this earth the same way others are, but i agree it is a sin and although i wouldn't put someone down for their choice of life, it is not for me and that is the only one i can speak for.

my god is merciful and i agree this is not an unforgivable sin, but the only ones who will be forgiven are those who repent and commit that sin no more. i love all my brothers and sisters, and i would treat them the same. with respect due a human being and a child of god. acceptance is the key, that no one is better or worse than i and i have no right to judge anyone.

Everyone is worthy of God's love...everyone. I have heard many who say they hate african americans, hate hispanics, hate native americans, hate homosexuals, hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate hate and more hate.

I am no one's judge or jury-I know what is in the Bible just as everyone else does. Thowing out scripture that people are not worthy-going to burn in hell-does not show the mercy and compassion that our God has for everyone--everyone is so worthy of God's love and mercy. Loving and having the compassion of Jesus is far better than pushing anyone away-making them feel that their sin is any different than mine. I have enough sin to build a huge bonfire--who am I to tell anyone that they will burn in hell? Good hub!

I had to come back and finish my comment because I was crying from the video. I wrote a hub-slapping down satan for this very reason-it just makes my heart cry so hard to see people kill themselves by those who are struggling--because we don't have Jesus's compassion. I am still crying--so I guess I should be happy that my heart is full.....

R...this is a hub that makes you think and I appreciate your views and your words. This has always been a very confusing subject for me because although I want people to be "free to live their lives as they see fit," I do feel that the overall "acceptance" part is confusing. Anyway! Great hub! Best, G

Glad you came along G...thanks so much for the comment,perhaps one day,we will understand this confusing part cos it still baffles me how my pastor who said,"there goes the thief,he is a sinner therefore have no communication with him yet stood in the same pulpit where he preached against fornication/adultery and allowed John and James, Jane and Julie wed...It is confusing and still confusing.

Rossimobis my brother, I love you just as you are. Nope I don't feel gay 'cuz I threw down that line, It's the truth. I don't want to kiss you or enter your exit. There are all kinds of kinky things that goes on between a man and woman, just as the physical acts that are done between the same sex relationships. So in all truth Sodom was destroyed for being a San Francisco of it's time. Men and women were involved in rowdy sex acts served up kinky as well as same sex stuff. At least that is the rumor I gathered. It was a sex free for all, some probably got paid, I don't know.

In California, Laguna Beach was a Beach town in 1969 when I first walked it's streets, in 1995 when I last rode my Hog through town, It was now referred to "Faguna Beach" and it was common to see two guys holding hands and strolling down the sidewalks. I mention "Guys" because seeing "Gals" doing the same was always common as far as I can remember. I don't know about others but the sight of females wearing male clothing and showing a bond of love was never judged as gay until the late '80s (my mental recall, estimate).

I stopped going to a sidewalk cafe there, because it was every trip that trying to drink a large mocha-latte and people watch while enjoying the ocean air and the bikini butts on women (a sin of lust? or was it just appreciation for Yahweh's ability to make sweet designs of flesh?) I stopped because I always was assaulted with two dudes sucking face and slipping each other the tongue, like the picture above I just cannot accept public displays like that. What is it to me? First off, if I was there with a woman, I would not force people two watch our fore-play. So why do they do it? It's like bragging, screaming in public "Hey I'm Hitting this!" I come from the "Flower Child era, of show us your bippy", but I still act in public, as a child safe zone. Back when the last battle filled the air waves with the military accepting gay folks as warriors or not, my Pop said something that made a lot of sense to me. He was a Christian man all the way to his bone marrow and didn't judge out loud or talk crudely and to hear him say damn or hell was rare, he was old school and a Marine. To the chase, we were watching the news and he said, " It's OK if they want to be cock suckers, they just don't have to brag about it". I busted up laughing, not at the issue, but at him actually saying something like that. I mean if I was laying pipe with a sweet heart, I don't walk around telling everyone, Hey! She likes her butt spanked and a vibrating something or another stuck in her some place or another. It's something that is just nobodies business what goes on behind closed doors between myself and a woman.

It's pretty clear in the bible that butt punchers(I got a feeling that a man doing the same to a woman the sin is the same) are going to fry if they don't turn their dials back to the straight and narrow, but so are liars and Twinky shop lifters. I don't think there is a scale of one sin worse than another with the exception of disrespecting the Holy Spirit in speak or thought, and if you don't forgive, you'll not be forgiven. I don't need to forgive the gays I see as the sin they commit does not effect me, I do need to ask for forgiveness for my self when I mentally show disgust for the two I see and throw a seven dollar coffee in the trash walk out and kick the old Hog to life and ride off in a roar thinking you sick Bastards.

So here is where the "Golden Rule" comes in, I'm required to love these two gay folks, regardless of anything else, Period! As Christians we don't run them off with a stick, we bring them in and minister to them the Golden Rule, and then let them hear the tail of "Free Will" where it came from and where it will send you in certain cases. While we are at it we toss the rules of the game in and teach them what is kosher and what is not.

Sounds simple right? Then we have to show our own fruits, set an example as Christ did as he grew up and taught folks with words from the father Yahweh, and fixed broken folks with healing.

Alas, in the end, we cannot, after all that is why the cross became a tool of redemption for straight?(straight to hell in many cases) people, and Gay people. There will be a reckoning for one and all.

I heard if we try and save someone(spiritually), we cannot do it, but if we get them to turn unto Yahweh, many of our own sins will be covered.

So if your gay and you read this and I offended you, please forgive me as no offense was intended and remember Jesus Loves You, and I do as well.

50-caliber,sir...thank you so much for the insight you brought in,we don't mean no offense but highlighting on an issue which is tearing mankind apart.It is not funny to see John kiss James in public or in private, you see God has a reason when he allowed Noah into the ark with both animals and humans MALE AND FEMALE but as humans,remember,it started from the garden of Eden but redemption is for all.

Rossimobis, you are right. When Christ was teaching, his words were that of the Father through him. He taught that the order of will was Yahweh the Father was head of Christ,who in turn was the head of man, who in turn was the head of woman. The end, there was no man was the head of the smaller man or what ever one might think of. There are too many instances to ignore it. BUT, God granted free will and here in the land of the free I think we are destined to allow free will in this area as well, like it or not.

After the Marine Corps for ten years one of my team members and I combined our G.I. loans and bought two houses together, one and then after 3 years a bigger fancier one. We split the write offs in tax season. We were not gay, but the goings on under those roofs was one woman after the other. Both were 4 bedroom homes and the extra two rooms were used by other Bikers for cheating on their wives or if single just Whoring around. The sins were no different, just legal for the most part, except the drugs. I guess what these people want is to be able to be allowed to share insurance and other benefits that Christian one man one woman couples share. So who am I to tell them they can't ride the freight train to hell? Had I died in those years with out asking for redemption and turning from my life style I'd be on that train, maybe the engineer! I hope with redemption and confession on judgment day I won't have to talk about it all again. Those days were sinful.

Sorry to be blunt but homosexuality is wrong in God's eyes He made the vagina to take a penis NOT the anus. It tears, bleeds and spreads Aids because it is unatural.God forgives all sins, but just as an adulterer has to stop committing adultery to be forgiven, so it is with the sodomite.

It's a brainwashing world creating chaos and confusion. So many things seem militaristic-ally insane. The air, water, and our foods are compromised. There is an insanity of some sort everywhere causing odd behaviors everywhere. People say there is no global warming- they say it's a conspiracy- I have no idea about that. I do know that if people think that more automobiles and bad air is good for us they just conduct an experiment like drive that car into a garage and leave it running with the door closed.

Until our "intakes" are better safe-guarded" and our food is to the nourishment for our well-being to live a better life -for God- to promote a good life for all instead of just the rich, and truly promote the Golden Rule- we will have confusion in all things on a massive scale.

Let's not judge- especially when the GOLDEN RULE is not mandated. Let's not throw stones until homes and bridges are built for everyone and nourishing food is the food of the day. Thanks Rossi!
