In Christ there is neither male nor female. We are commanded to love one another and bear one another's burdens. That's the truth.

If you live by the Ten Commandments and adhere to Christ words, His New Commandment then you shall not perish. These are the Laws of God.
Does men add a new law to God's Laws? Do you think that Paul's words are greater then the Laws of God?
Christ never meant fornication as part of love. Fornication with the opposite sex is a sin, so fornication with same sex is a much grevious sin. Sodomy and Gomorrah were destroyed for that. Paul in the new testament condemned it, so a homosexual is a sinner, but again all have sinned and none is perfect. Will a homosexual make the kingdom of God? Possible, with God nothing is impossible. He granted a thief eternal life on the cross for admitting his deity.

Now this advocate, is the Spirit of Truth. The Spirit of Truth lives in Me. And Jesus says many things I have yet to say to you but you cannot bear them. But, He, the Spirit of Truth will tell you all the Truth.
I have already explain the process God chose to create, evolution. In Chernobyl we learn how radiation alters spieces. In the natural world the sun plays a big role in the process of evolution. Thats why I use the sun to teach you that if enough radiation is released from the sun, life forms eventually changes.
Now for the part you cannot bear, homosexuality is not a sin. For as diverse as our own planet is, so too, is the diversity of the universe. I can hear the disgruntleness. But, I will offer Scripture to back up this statement. In Leviticus we find where this priesthood speaks of the sin of men being with men. We also find this in Paul's teachings in Romans. But, Paul, in his Letter to the Hebrews, says that the Leviticus Priesthood is imperfect, that the Priesthood of Christ, Melchisedech, is the Perfect Priesthood. So how did Paul get confused? Because Paul was taught by a Levite.
Jesus Christ never spoke of these things because man's scientific knowledge was insufficent. Evolution.
Martin Luther King in his great speach talked about a man should not be judged by the color of his skin but by the content of his character. Same goes for sexual orientation. You see, just as people of color bore a cross for the persecution they received, so too, do homosexuals bare a cross. This is why Jesus gave us a New Commandment. Now there is sin if you practice this way of life if you are not of that way of life. Now, as for homosexuals, something you cannot bear. Marriage is a Sacrament of Life. For only a man and woman can bring about life. If man's laws are to give a legal union for tax benefit and such, then that is up to man. But God's Laws is permanent. Also, I am not gay. I raised a family. There are no ligitamate priest if you are gay. My Priesthood is a Priesthood of Life. With that said, all are welcome into My Church. Christ Church is for everyone.
Now, there is a lot for you to digest, but I will leave you with this last thought. Elton John has always been my favorite artist. Elton was lost for so many years until he met Ryan White. The boy that was persecuted in school because he contracted aids from a blood transfusion. When Elton met Ryan that is when God stepped into his life. He became sobber and quit drugs. But Elton did much more for he went to Africa and began to help the needy. The millions of aid victims. He who does for the least of My brothers does for me.
Absolutely beautiful post, Lionpainter!

Homosexuality is such an "easy target" for stone-throwers.

If we judged ourselves, we should not be judged..

Blessings to you!

Sin must be resisted, which is something that many can't bear. The New Testament lays out all kinds of sins of the flesh that will preclude one from entering Heaven.
