@Alcololic, yes those who follow the bible are bound by its teachings those who don't are not but remember there is a price to pay.
@Topic, I use to be so confused by this argument because it is natural to want to show all people love and to want all people to have equality. However God's word is the only word for me The Alpha and the Omega. There is no going between or against his word, he WINS every time.
So no matter what hollywood, politicians, media, or society says I cannot ride with the populous on this one. It does not stop me from loving a person in spite of their lifestyle (which is a choice) but that act is an abomination, GODâ€™s WORDS.
People say you canâ€™t judge but thatâ€™s wrong, if you follow the word, believe the word, are bound by the word, then you can judge according to the WORD. What you canâ€™t do is JUDGE OUTSIDE of the word. Please believe fear and confusion are the tricks of the devil. Wake up and clear your mind already the CHOICE is yours.
I know just by reading the following scriptures I was convicted and have some praying to do.
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Leviticus 20: 13
13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
1 Corithins 6:9-10
9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
SIDE NOTE: (ABUSER S OF THEMSELVES WITH MANKIND, MEANS HOMOSEXUALS)
Romans 1: 26-32
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
SIDE NOTE: THIS VERSE SPEAKS TO WOMEN GOING AGAINST NAUTRE AND LYING WITH ONE ANOTHER.
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
SIDE NOTE: IF YOU READ VERSE ROMANS 1:28, THE WORD IS SAYING BECAUSE THOSE WHO COMMIT SUCH ACTS DENY GOD (DO NOT ACKNOWLEDGE HIM) SO HE GIVES THEM OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND, (a depraved, unprincipled, or wicked person: a drunken reprobate). So now they are unable to see the errors of their ways because their heart has been hardened and they canâ€™t hear godâ€™s words. Instead they go out and promote their abomination and condemn others who do not go along with their act. This is not just in reference to homosexual acts either. How many people think fornication is okay because everybodyâ€™s doing it? Itâ€™s not okay, nor is disrespecting your parents, coveting what somebody else has. But thatâ€™s what the media promotes so we think its okay, itâ€™s not. This is what is happening here in America today. We are turning into another Sodom and Gomorrah.
As I said before the choice is yours people, please believe it! Ride or Die for God only!
