Gays are Born that Way

Born This Way

Gays are Born that Way

Every one of us is created by God wonderfully and fearfully. We are equal in His sight, for there is no partiality with Him. Homosexuals (members of the LGBT community) should have the same rights and responsibilities with heterosexuals functioning in a society. Each of us should promotes acceptance and avoid discrimination, for we are all human.

The issue of homosexuality affects everybody especially to the members of the LGBT community. It affects our family, our friends, the churches, and the government. As a person, it affects us emotionally, spiritually, physically, and mentally.

The following are interpretations of the verses based on the gay Christian point of view.

What is the context of Genesis 19 What was happened exactly in Sodom and Gomorrah? What was the sin of Sodom? The sin of Sodom according to Jesus was NOT homosexuality.

Sodom’s sin was all about the lack of hospitality, idolatry, greed/gluttony but nothing links the sin to homosexuality. The belief that God destroyed Sodom because of homosexuality is a late interpretation. Moses writings in Genesis 10:19; 13:10-13; 14:2,8,10-12,17,21-22; 18:16,20,22,26; 19:1,4,24,28. Deuteronomy 23:17; 29:23; 32:32. Eziekel 16:46, 48-49,53,55-56.

Jesus emphasized that the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah is lack of hospitality (Matthew 10:11-15 & Mark 6:11.

In the Bible, individuals who engage in same sex activity in worship of the fertility goddess are called sodomites. The term "sodomite" has no linguistic relationship to the inhabitants of Sodom or their biological descendants. People with an anti-gay agenda insist that the term sodomites describe the men of Sodom and therefore modern homosexuals are rightly called sodomites.

What is the context of Leviticus 18:22 & 20:13 How do you interpret these veres?

These verses are all about the Holiness Code which is found in Leviticus 17-26 chapters (Levitical Law). The abomination refers to these verses is all about the pagan religious worship of Molech (the false god of fire) including the worship of his partner Ashtoreth (fertility goddess). Sexual practices are present while the worshippers worship these false god and goddess. These sexual practices are mainly same-sex act and these were done to worship Molech and Ashtoreth. This is not all about for the two same-sex couple who are loving and committed to each other.

What is the context of 1 Corinthians 6:9? What does this verse exactly mean?

1 Cor. 6:9 was all about shrine/temple prostitution and this was common in Corinth. This was the heart of problems in the church in Corinth. Effeminate (Malakoi), Abusers of themselves with mankind (Arsenokoitai) described shrine prostitutes who served pagan gods. These words don’t mean homosexuals. Of course, there is nothing in the Bible and very little in church history to support their false teaching. In the first century AD, no one would define malakoi to mean homosexual. The Greek word malakoi was rarely, if ever, used in the first century to indicate homosexual men and was never used to indicate lesbians. In the first century AD, no one would define arsenokoites to mean homosexual. Historical evidence - the way the arsenokoites stem was actually used in the first century AD - indicates that the arsenokoites stem referred to: Rape, Sex with angels or the gods, Anal sex with one's wife , Masturbation. Based on the extant Greek manuscripts available to us today, the Greek word arsenokoites was rarely, if ever, used to indicate homosexual men and was never used to describe lesbians. Therefore, when someone quotes 1 Corinthians 6:9 or 1 Timothy1:10 to "prove" that God is against homosexuality, they are conveying nothing more than their opinion, without any basis in fact. It is important to keep in mind that getting saved means you've experienced heartfelt repentance from your sins and you are trusting God's grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone, as the satisfactory payment for your sins.

      I've read the reason why the King James Bible is so skewed against homosexuality is because King James was a closeted homosexual.

      How horrible it has been for everyone ever since then that James couldn't face himself, but that was the product of the times in which he lived.

      There is no excuse, really, for Christians today to fail to use a concordance, or to look deeper into things than what some redneck preacher told them.
