The Bible does not condemn Homosexuality.

The Bible does not condemn Homosexuality.

I am NOT a theologically Liberal Christian doing this. There are plenty of Bible teachings I'm uncomfortable with that I accept.  Like how absolute with only one very specific exception Jesus condemned divorce.  I'm a Six-Day Young Earth Creationist and a Pre-Millennial Futurist.  I believe in Salvation by Faith Alone and Eternal Security.

I'm not trying to appease the Left.  Plenty of aspects of my views may still leave the Liberal LGBT Community unhappy with me.  Like my opposition to Hate Crime/Hate Speech Laws.  Or that I view Anal Sex (which not all Gay Men do) as at least ill advised.  Or that I view Marriage as between Man and a Woman (but not all Sex outside Marriage as a Sin), but oppose laws restricting Marriage on purely Libertarian grounds.

I hold this position because I believe The Bible is infallible and The Finale Authority.  And that Man has since before the Canon even closed been attempting to pervert it.  Satan wants people to think God is more restrictive then he actually is.

The gist of my view is that the Sin of Sodom was In-hospitality and cruel treatment of immigrants, which manifested in the form of RAPE.  While the other passages are all about pagan ritual sex acts involving penetrative anal intercourse.

Let me give the short version of the Leviticus 18 part here.  "As with a Woman" is a qualifying statement that makes it not applicable to all male same-sex acts, only penetrative anal intercourse has ever been thought of as an imitation of the unique male-female sex act.

Part 1: Introduction
Part 2: The Sin of Sodom
Part 3: Leviticus 18 and 20
Part 4: Romans 1
Part 5: Corinthians and Timothy
Part 6: Condoned Homosexual Affection

  1. I've been reading your blog and I want to tell you that I'm so glad you exist and are working to spread the word of Christianity as you view it, which is also how I would think mainstream Christians would also view it. But many do not. I have a lot of issues with Christians and I've unfortunately tied that to the love of Jesus, but I am now working to get over that I guess. This must seem like bumbling, and I apologize. You write beautifully and I enjoy reading your content.

    Thank you,
    Anna

  3. You are teaching false doctrine. The Bible does condemn sodomy and God calls it an abomination. Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. You're a pervert if you believe contrary. Romans 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    2. The problem with "traditional' Christian doctrines condemning Homosexuality is they are NOTHING but a series of VAIN "declarations" that they CANNOT "prove" accept by reciting verses in their "ENGLISH" defiled text. GOD NEVER spoke "old English" as EVERY WORD that proceedeth out of HIS mouth. The "ENGLISH" Translations are RECITED as it "they" are the words of GOD HIMSELF. Yet, an examination of the ORIGINAL SCROLL DOCUMENTS "prove" them to be LIES. This is the problem. These follow the "traditions" on MEN & NOT GOD. GOD WARNED us about that "in" THE GOSPELS in ALL BIBLES. For example: The word "sodomite" was NEVER UTTERED by GOD in the BIBLE. But the KJV "ENGLISH" has it ALL over it. So, this person talks about how GOD condemns "sodomy" a word that does NOT proceed out of the mouth of GOD, but of ENGLISH-MEN who Translated it to serve thier OWN BIAS & it became a "Tradition" of thought among English-Speaking nations who got "their" version of The Bible. This is TRUE "throughout" the Homosexuality doctrine. The SAME ERROR that is perpetuated by "EMOTIONS" of MEN toward the idea of a male having sexual union with another male. This is CARNAL based in EMOTIONS & NOT "spiritual" discernment AT ALL & NOT based in THE WORDS of GOD ONLY...but ADDITIONS & SUBTRACTIONS to it via Translations & their resulting TRADITIONS of THOUGHT.

      The TRUE WORD of GOD requires just what "Paul" commanded "PROVE "ALL" THINGS" These people "DECLARE" [notice it next time you read the EMOTIONS of the Fake-Christian homophobe's writings & comments] & they PROVE NOTHING with "DATA" for THE WORD.

      Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. IS NOT NOT NOT what that verse says in the ORIGINAL BIBLE of GOD..PERIOD. It reads [for one example] in the literal:
      And with male thou shall not lie [upon] beddings of a woman. The word "upon" is a language aid carried over from the SAME expression of GOD in Genesis 49:4 You went up [on] beddings of thy Father. To lie [reclining] upon beddings of a woman to have sex with a male "effeminizes" the Son of Israel [1 Cor. 6.9] & creates a "pseudo-heterosexual] event thus perverting the purity homosexual union.This is typically how heterosexuals engage in homosexual activity which is FORBIDDEN as it is only "lust" driven & cannot be "love" after the INWARD man. It was a KNOWN Ritual engaged in by Heterosexuals unto "molech" idols

      But under NO circumstances is the words "as" NOR "with" found NOR substantiated by other verses provide by GOD....NO NOT ONE! It does not even FIT Genesis 49:4 AT ALL or else Reuben is having sex with his own Father---ridiculous
      not You Lie down as with [having sex] with a woman
      You went up [as with] having sex with thy Father.

      It is "sloppy" Translating, that I believe there is evidence to say it goes all the way back to the Ancient Rabbi's just prior to the LXX Septuagint Translation & EVERY subsequent Translator COPIED "their" error or variation thereof to make it FIT their idea.
