My Opinion on Gays( a Christian's point of view)

Updated on June 14, 2016

In Leviticus chapter 18 verse 22, it says “Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.” In other words, don’t have a sexual relationship with someone of the same gender because it is a terrible sin. I am a Christian and I believe it is not right to be gay, but that does not mean I am going to treat that person differently because of their sexuality. That is where people get it wrong. Some churches say if you are gay you will go to hell or God does not love you, but that is a lie. In James chapter 2 verse 10, it says,“For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.”. In other words, it says if you have only committed one sin you are just as bad as a man that has committed thousands a.k.a. all sins are equally as bad. So we have no right to persecute a LGBT because we all have at least once committed a sin. Even if in our eyes that sin is worse, God says all sins are equal.

On June 12, 2016, Omar Mateen killed 50 people (including himself) at a gay club in Orlando Florida. Multiple people support his decision (even some Christians) for killing gays. If you think he is right for killing people for being gay, you should believe all of us would be dead. They committed a sin and so have we. Whether we think theirs is worse or not we all have committed a sin.

In conclusion, I do not support LGBT, but I will not discriminate them. I will not disrespect them or treat them differently for their decision. I have committed plenty of sins and realize that all sins are equal. I do not support gays, but I will treat them just as I would treat a straight person.

      Constance, thank you for stating your views here, and welcome to HubPages.

      I would commend a Hub to you, written by Hanavee. It explains that verse, Leviticus chapter 18 verse 22, very thoroughly and much better than I could ever do. I am not in any way expert in what is written in the bible, Hanavee is. If you could put aside any preconceptions you have, but just allowing time to read what he has written, before restating your opinion, that would be good too.

      There is one important point about quoting that verse from Leviticus. As I understand it, there is a whole discourse there about what the ancient Israelites were to do and not do, according to the social and political objectives of that era. Just one verse, taken out of context, and applied to a culture/society thousands of years later, is an anomaly, especially if there has been a false meaning applied to it. If everyone who is concerned about that one verse were to apply every other verse of that chapter in their lives, then we might see it as relevant and genuine.

      I am not trying to belittle what you have said in your hub, far from it. Just wishing to point out there is at least one other way of looking at it.

      Trusting you will enjoy HubPages.
