OK Homosexuals and the NT... FOR ALL!!!

I am just so tired of hearing we don't follow the OT we follow the NT which is also against Homosexuality. The truth is no where in it is there one single word that translates into the English word Homosexual. So exactly why is it no body bothers to study more in depths with their choices & beliefs? I mean don't you really want to know what you stand for? I am leaving the OT out of this since most say we are not bound by that.

  • It's called "unnatural affections" in the New Testament.

    Answer by NannyB. at 3:35 PM on Aug. 13, 2010

  • Are "unnatural affections" defined in the NT? Or is that also left to interpretation?


    Answer by jsbenkert at 3:40 PM on Aug. 13, 2010

  • That would be an individuals interpretation.

  • Bigots will always find a "viable" reason for their hate, even if they have to create it.

    Answer by SabrinaMBowen at 3:45 PM on Aug. 13, 2010

  • I have to agree with Sabrina. People who are bigots find all sorts of "interpretations" as a reason for their hate.

  • ohh old testament and new testament right? so many acronyms i am afraid to guess here..i agree with Sabrina. however ya unnatural affections do cover homosexuality.... However further looking at the texts there are many more rules then those against homosexuality that we do daily.... the immense picking and choosing that people who use the book do makes me dislike the institution

  • 1 Chorinthians 6:9-10 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
    010: Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

    Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable

    Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."

  • unnatural affections

    Funny sense it is not defined in there. So how do you know what it refers to at all.

    What is ot and nt?

    Old Testament and New testament

    Mary you obviously have a reading disorder. So I will explain. I said no OT which means Leviticus. Again the rest does not give a definition of "unnatural relations" So really you can't say much. Though is you look at the surrounding verses you can see how it does not pertain to homosexuality as the link explains which I am guessing you either had trouble reading that to or you just didn't bother. Thanks for giving the defense a shot though.
