Okay, so we all know the scriptures. Here are my questions. In the bible, it basically implies the act of homosexual sex is a sin. A bad one.

So, what if a person is attracted to someone of the same sex but never ever has sex, are they still committing sin? If not, at what point, does one cross the line?

Jesus would certainly tell you to act upon your feelings, so no it is not a sin, in fact homosexuality is not a sin either. Jesus is totally cool with it.

Roughly translated, the Bible says 'man shall not lie with man'.

Of course the Bible also says lusting in your heart is a sin.

(Remember Jimmy Carter???, lololol).

Good question.

Yes, the Bible tells us to always tell the truth, and you should have lust in your heart, but rather act upon those feelings and remove that lust.

Jesus was even more harsh on sin than the Old Testament. He said that if you hate someone you commit murder in your heart.

Great question. If they are of the opposite sex you're going straight to hell. If they are not then immediate family members are fair game in most southern states.

Hence the whole hogwash of "hate the sin, love the sinner," a distinction worthy of the Pharisees.

Here is what the Bible says Jesus has to say about homosexuality and homosexuals. And these are direct quotes from the Bible quoting Jesus.

So, what if a person gets a temporary tattoo of Mickey Mouse but never ever has a permanent one, are they still committing sin? If not, at what point, does one cross the line?

Okay, so we all know the scriptures. Here are my questions. In the bible, it basically implies the act of eating shellfish is a sin. A bad one.

So, what if a person eats Octopus or any cephalpod, which is still technically a Mollusk, but, not a bivalve. Are they still committing sin? If not, at what point, does one cross the line?
I could point out that homosexuality is listed among the worst sins like murder, adultery, drunkenness, etc. But liberals will still find a way to ridicule the Bible. It doesn't even seem worth it.
