Leviticus 18:22 (piog)

Leviticus 18:22, which reads: "You shall not lie with a man as one lies with a woman, it is an abomination

Ok. I think this verse is impying that it is okay to LIE to women.

If it was stating a man should not be with another man, It would read "You shall not lay with a man as one lays with a woman, it is an abomination.

Lie is an intransitive verb (one that does not take an object), meaning "to recline."  Its principal parts are lie (base form), lay (past tense), lain (past participal), and lying (present participle).

In the spiritual way you lay with your spouse forever.

[quote name="_Kissy_" id=

I will lay in bed with my husband until I die, but I lie in bed with him every night

The following is one that I found that describes them.


The English verbs lay and lie are commonly confused by even native English speakers. I'm not lying when I say that you can now lay your fears of not knowing the difference to rest.
 

Lay

Lay is a transitive verb, which means that it must be used with a direct object. The past tense of lay is laid.

Please lay the books on the table.
I laid the books on the table.

Have you ever seen a chicken lay an egg?
The chicken just laid two eggs.

"Now I lay me down to sleep..."
He laid himself down to sleep.

 
Lie

Lie is an intransitive verb, which means it cannot have a direct object. The past tense of lie is lay.

Lie down next to me.
I lay down next to her.

I just want to lie in bed all day.
Yesterday, he lay in bed all day.

Don't lie on the floor!
I lay on the floor last week and you didn't say anything.

Lie (past participle lied) means to say something untrue.

Don't lie to me.
He lied about where he got the money.

 
The Bottom Line

There are two problems here. One is that lie and lay mean more or less the same thing; it's just that lie is intransitive and lay is transitive. In addition, the past tense of lie is identical to the present tense lay. Just remember that in the present, you lie down/on/in, but you lay something. Once you've got that straight in your head, you just need to work on the past tenses and you'll be all set - no lie!
 

Lay means "to place something down." It is something you do to something else. It is a transitive verb.

Incorrect: Lie the book on the table.
Correct: Lay the book on the table.
(It is being done to something else.)


Lie means "to recline" or "be placed." It does not act on anything or anyone else. It is an intransitive verb.

Incorrect: Lay down on the couch.
Correct: Lie down on the couch.
(It is not being done to anything else.)

Kissy you are obsessed with homosexuality.... 

His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.

Kissy no response to my response Is it because it actually explains it In grammar terms of the English language ? Or is it because you can't argue with it?
