St. Paul said a lot of things. One thing in particular that I keep hearing is that homosexuality is "unnatural" (even though a better translation from the Greek word would be "uncustomary"). Many say what is in Leviticus was absoloved by the coming of Jesus. Ok, I get that. So, were going with St. Paul, a man that did not know Jesus (Jesus never said anything about it). St. Paul also says that women should not participate in church. How many Christian ladies take part in church? Also that a woman who goes about with her hair uncovered should have her hair shaved off. How many of you Christian ladies wear the veil? Or what about where Paul says that your husbands can displine you with a stick no thicker than his thumb? Does anyone agree with this man about these things? Yet your willing to take his stance on homosexuality to heart? What gives? This is not me mocking, I really want to know.Answer Question

Novemberlove: I am just wondering...It seems like you are making excuses for the hair issues raised, so why not use the same discretion for homosexuality. I can say today, in our culture homosexuality isn't distracting or even uncustomary.

There is a difference between issues of custom and issues of morality. Homosexuality is an issue of morality. It is specifically forbidden in the Bible. A woman's hair, make up, thingslike that had to do with the customs of that time period. Never did Paul say anything about women not participating in the church. He said they were to be silent in the church. this was because in those days, the women sat on one side of the church and the men on the other. During the sermon, women would talk out loud & call over to their husbands to explain what was just said. Paul told the women to be silent in the church and let their husbands explain things to them later.
