In St. John's Gospel, Chapter 14, A Word of Comfort, verse 15 If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father and He will give you another Advocate to dwell with you forever.
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.

Being born a homosexual is not a sin, but practicing homosexuality is. More pointedly, one may be born with a desire for his/her own sex, but the temptation to act upon it must be resisted.

What must be resisted is false teachings.
What are the Ten Commandments? And Christ New Commandments. To love one another as I have loved you. A Gay person who keeps these commandments shall live in Heaven.
It is not for you to Judge but Jesus Christ. If you love Me and keep My Commandments, the Kingdom shall be yours.

Remember, God the Father creates throughout the universe, just as I create new works. As diverse as our own planet is, so too, is the diversity of the universe.
Why would God the Father create such a vast universe with countless galaxies just to create life on Earth?

Have you not heard the saying that we come from different planets? Each planet represents a type of spirit of man. God is an exact scientist, so if they were not useful, he certainly would not have made them-the planets.

No Marlbron, I have not heard that. But, Im wondering how have you been? I would say since the Father creates he is more of an artist. An Artist who is well versed in the science of the universe, because He created it.

Lionpainter, what is the natural use of the male and female? God created the woman for the man. When a man does with man what should be done with a woman it is not according to nature and so has missed the mark. That is sin, to miss the mark.

Read Romans

Rom 1:24-28 Wherefore God gives them over, in the lusts of their hearts, to the uncleanness of dishonoring their bodies among themselves, (25) those who alter the truth of God into the lie, and are venerated, and offer divine service to the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed for the eons! Amen!" (26) Therefore God gives them over to dishonorable passions. For their females, besides, alter the natural use into that which is beside nature." (27) Likewise also the males, besides, leaving the natural use of the female, were inflamed in their craving for one another, males with males effecting indecency, and getting back in themselves the retribution of their deception which must be." (28) And according as they do not test God, to have Him in recognition, God gives them over to a disqualified mind, to do that which is not befitting,

Altering the natural use is missing the mark and is thus sin.

I have told you the Truth of these things. It is for greater understanding of life on this planet and throughout the universe. For Paul admits that The Levi Priesthood is imperfect.
That Christ Priesthood is Perfect, because in Jesus Christ is the Holy Spirit of God.
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?

Yes the Levi Priesthood was imperfect because the men were imperfect and Christ is perfect while His Priestood remains imperfect because of mans understanding and no matter if they are indwelled by the Holy Spirit, they are still men and not God. Mens understanding of the commandments is imperfect.

What do you think His New Commandment is?
