Okay, so whenever I ask someone about their religious stance on Gay marriage, they often quote the bible with Leviticus 18:22. Acceptable, however it also says it is a sin, in the same chapter (v. 19) that having sex with a woman on her period is also a sin, and in Lev. 17:13 it proclaims eating the blood of any animal is also a sin, meaning any meat cooked other than well done. Since sin is the same in Gods eyes, being gay and having sex with your husband on your period are equal in evil. There are several other examples of things Christians shouldn't do according to Leviticus, but do anyways,throughout the chapter.
Now from what I've understood, when Christ came all you needed to do to be accepted into heaven was: Admit that you are a sinner, Believe that Jesus is God's son, Confess your sins and have God as your savior.

O.K. Jesus never abolished the Old Testament. People assume that He did.
Matthew 5:17-18 (New International Version) The Fulfillment of the Law 17"Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished
As to your statement that we are hell worthy as Christians, yes we are.Â IfÂ my salvation depended on my behavior then I would have no hope.Â My righteousness comes through Christ and Christ alone.Â He is the only one to have ever lived a perfect sinless life.
