Another homosexual question mainly for Christians...

Leviticus 20:13 – “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

So if the bible should be upheld in our laws according to this does that mean homosexuals should be put to death?

I mean really you all say we can't allow it, it is not how god intended. This is a rule in gods great book (which fallible men wrote and translated) so would you like us to make this a law to? I mean the bible does not say do not allow them to marry but it does say to put them to death.

If you don't think so then whats your beef you already aren't doing what your interpretation of the great book tells you to.

Not this is not directed at all Christians just so no feelings get hurt.

  • Again... Jesus didn't change a friggin' thing. In Matthew he says in Matthew 5: 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.


    The earth is STILL here and this verse speaks of his RETURN- that is when everything will be accomplished. Until then- the old Law is to remain in effect. Christians love the first part of the verse and mis-interpret the second part in order to 'spepareate' themselves from the Jews and not to have to follow their Laws.

  • Leviticus is the Old Testament and therefore the old law. Jesus changed the rules and we don't have to follow the "law" to the letter to make it to heaven anymore.

    I personally believe homosexuality is a sin BUT no sin is greater than any other sin. So a homosexual is no different from any other person. They deserve the exact same rights as any other human being. They are fully capable of going to heaven if their heart is pure and they believe that Jesus was the son of Christ.

    That is really the only requirement...belief. All else is forgiven.

  • In the OT are many examples of consequences when one decides to go their own way and not choose God's...but when Christ came he brought a higher law...a law of love and mercy...mercy rejoiceth against judgement. Christ fulfilled all the OT laws and brought something better. It is in God's hands to do the judging...as Christ said, "He who has not sinned, cast the first stone". He did not say this to condone sin..but to show that we ourselves cannot condemn another. That does not mean a person cannot differentiate between right and wrong. If read in the NT in Acts and so on..you would understand why the OT laws are not applied now...they were a shadow of the things to come..a schoolmaster to prepare the Jews for Christ's coming and the gospel that he preached.

  • Here note this scripture in Why we do not follow the old testiment law which was only put in place to SHOW that we needed a savior!! because the law pointed to our sinful nature and Christ came to redeem us from the curse of the law, my suggestion to you hun is to read the Entire book of romans. Romans 7
    Freed from the Law
    1 Or do you not know, brethren (for I speak to those who know the law), that the law has dominion over a man as long as he lives? 2 For the woman who has a husband is bound by the law to her husband as long as he lives. But if the husband dies, she is released from the law of her husband. 3 So then if, while her husband lives, she marries another man, she will be called an adulteress; but if her husband dies, she is free from that law, so that she is no adulteress, though she has married another man. 4 Therefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law through the body of Christ, that you may be m

  • 6 But now we have been delivered from the law, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in the newness of the Spirit and not in the oldness of the letter.

  • Also note this scripture that shows when Christ died on the cross we are no longer under the Law but under grace through Christ JesusRomans 6:14 (New King James Version)

    14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

  • I am not in any way trying to offend you but trying to answer your questions in why we don`t follow the OT law,The chief value of the law given under Moses in the Old Testament was to demonstrate to mankind that they were utterly powerless to keep it. That way, when Christ came to free us from the law - and fulfill it for us - we would be only too grateful to exchange what was not possible anyhow for the beauty of God's grace. : "because by the works of the Law no flesh will be justified in His sight." (Romans 3:20) As you bind people to Old Testament rules, remember that we are not saved by keeping any of them but we are saved by faith.

  • i am christian and i cannot judge anyone to be put to death, i do not agree with homosexuality at all. however, the way i view it is: in the end God will be the judge, and i believe this is more about everlasting life then the life we live here on earth. and as a christian i can say we all do things that are sinful, and unbiblical, and to be a christian means that you have accepted Christ as your savior, and if you have God will forgive all your sins (even homosexuality) that is why Christ shed His blood for us, so that all who believe in him will be forgiven, and get to live in heaven. if you sin and have not excepted Christ, then you will not be allowed everlasting life, (you can consider hell death)

  • Not all Christians are against homosexuality... or take the Bible literally or even believe it to be the infallible word of God.
