Just wondering if those who use the Bible to validate their prejudices also follow ALL Old Testament law. Do you eat shellfish? Do you keep slaves? Do you practice ritual human sacrifice? Do you think rape is an acceptable practice against your enemies? All of these things are in the Old Testament and are condoned by God. Christians are supposed to follow the teachings of Christ, who threw out all Old Testament law and never once mentioned homosexuality being wrong. (Paul mentioned homosexuality, but Jesus did not!) Just wondering if you truly follow the Bible or not.Answer Question

The old testament is what the Jews follow. Christians follow the rules of the new testament and only use the old testament as a point of reference. The new testament speaks against homosexuality.
If you wanted to start an intelligent argument where you might throw the bible back in someones face, you might as why people are so concerned with other people's lives when they should be focusing on their own. Maybe even a little, "who ever here has no sin, cast the first stone".

7. Christians are supposed to follow all Scripture, not just the NT.
2 Timothy 3:16,17-- All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

Homosexuality in the NT (read with a Bible dictionary)--
Romans 1:26-27 26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

I Corinthians 6:9,10~~9Know 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,
10Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
