It's much more "fun" to stand and point out the faults/sins of others...

Do you ever see or hear gluttony preached against very often? Nope, that would take out probably half the congregation!

LOL
AMEN and pass the Cheetos! It's easier to see the toothpick in others eyes instead of the plank in our own

Look to the heart of the people in any relationship to see if they are basing it on love or something else. If you judge the homosexuals you should also judge the hetrosexuals the same way. How many of you fight and argue with your spuose? If you do, you do not love unconditionally and you will be judged accordingly.
I can honestly say in the almost nine years I've been with my BF, we've not had one fight or argument. We are different people with different truths. Fighting to prove who is right is not worth it. See in the heart and that is what God will see.
The bible is clear all liars, adulterers, murderers, lovers of self (man with man or woman with woman) all (sinners) will have their place in the lake of fire unless they turn from their wicked ways, repent, become born again (John 3:3) and receive Jesus Christ as their personal savior. If you are not living in what the bible defines as marriage between one man clinging to one woman then you are defiling the bed and that is sin. Sex outside of biblical marriage is sin/adultery. Try and justify it all you like but that doesn't change the truth. Read it for your self in the bible nothing is hidden so find out the truth before it is too late.

Find where your bible states that about the soul then we'll talk. Not flesh, but soul. God looks at the intent of the person. Are they acting in Love? If so, they are not sinning.
When you can prove to me that the bible explains about the soul part of man and what Love truely is where the soul is concerned between a male soul and a female soul, then maybe, I might consider it a sin. Until then, the bible is wrong. I'm not talking about the material man and woman but the male and female aspects of a soul.

You sir have just broken the commandment have no other gods before me for I am a jealous God to suit your sinful thoughts and needs. You created a god you feel makes sense to satisy your way of living since following God of the bible would be an incovenience for you. For you to say the bible is wrong is calling the Living God of the Bible a LIAR! I choose to believe the bible is true Moderator cut: offensive Go read the bible for yourself then the truth shall make you free. If any man and woman is in a relationship is having sex outside of marriage then that is sin. No exceptions for men with men and women with women. You call yourself Reverend do you know that means most high which refers to God not man.

Not sir, Ma'am. I did read the bible. Didn't care for it much so I went somewhere else. And I have not put any God before God. Did you not read my post? I worship God alone and not anyone else, including Jesus. There's enough people in the world doing that and I won't add to it. I'll worship God and you worship whomever you want.

All religions and beliefs have truth. The bible is fallible. All religions and beliefs are fallible because they were created by man. God did not create religion and God is not religion. God could care less if I read the bible or not. Man is too judgemental and they will judge based on their own set of beliefs. You don't know me nor do you know how I treat others. You see words on a page and interpret them just as you do with the bible. Each person belongs to God, not man. You see a person and not love. You aren't following Jesus when you do that.

Reverend was given to me by my church in which Jesus is part of. Go talk to Him if you think it's wrong.

Those who engage in this abomination ignore and twist the Scriptures so that they may try to justify their perversion.
Should I just commit suicide?

No amount of prayer, fasting, or shock therapy can make me straight. I've went through an ex-gay ministry and it did not work. If this really was at the top of the list things God 'hates', I believe He would have answered my prayers after years and years of crying at the alter praying to be changed straight during my teenage years. He would have answered my prayers when I was at Exodus International, trying to do what He would have me do...but he did not. So there is either two possibilities....1: The Bible has been misinterpreted into making people believe homosexuality is a much graver sin than it really is (if its a sin at all), OR 2: The Bible was completely made up to enforce the ideas and morals of the aristocracy of the 1st Century and is not the Word of God. The Bible says its God's will that ALL should be saved....yet if homosexuals can't change and are in fact born that way...there is no hope for them. That presents a serious problem with scripture.

P.S. Its interesting that Christians always turn to Leviticus to condemn gays yet pretty much ignore everything else that book has to say.

There are two gods in the universe. The living God of the Bible and the false god and deceiver the devil Satan. You have 2 choices in this short life on earth and it is clear to me the choice you have made not to adhere to the Bible as truth and infallible. It is obvious that your lifestyle is far more important to you than the truth of God. May God have mercy on your soul. Go to youtube and listen to Mary K Baxter's testimony of hell and heavan and than tell me what you plan to do. It is not too late to repent and turn from your wicked ways and tell the devil Satan you don't belong to him. Please for your sake here what I am saying to you. I am not gaining notiriety nor fortune by telling you the truth. I simply don't want anyone to go to hell and am warning you as Jesus Yeshua would do.
