God has reasons for everything He does. Man may not understand, comprehendor agree with the reason of God, but God is perfect and not arbitrary inthe things He does. Anciently, because homosexuality is, in total, by far,one of the most desirable forms of sexuality, God may have wanted the ancientIsraelites to increase their numbers rather than get sidetracked by onlyhaving recreational homosexual sex. However, such was not even the case!God knows the beginning to the end!
I'll not delve into the misinterpretation and mistranslation of Genesischapter 19, Leviticus 18:22-39 or Leviticus 20:13 except to say regarding
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where [are] themen which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we mayknow them.
22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is]abomination.
13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, bothof them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death;their blood [shall be] upon them.
The pagan Catholic Church has admitted to mistranslating the Bible.The following itemizes a few of the things they overlooked.
1) It is impossible for have intercourse with a man the same as intercoursewith a woman however, two men can lie and go to sleep the same as he lieswith a woman and goes to sleep. Is this what pagan's are implying?
2) Neither fellatio nor even mutual fellatio is hardly the same as aman lieth with woman. For those still unsure of what we're talking about,I'll just say that the plumbing is different!
3) The pagan Catholic Church and all other pagans who subscribe to theseverses are saying that God is a LIAR because on one hand, God saysHe is perfect and not arbitrary but in Genesis and Leviticus, if we areto believe this contradiction, God is only condemning male homosexuality,but saying He gets a charge out of watching female homosexuality. If hedid not say it is wrong, it must be perfectly okeh!
King Solomon, the Prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Zephaniah andeven Christ himself said the sins of Sodom and Gomorrah had nothing todo with homosexuality! (See the Sinsof Sodom and Gomorrah)
FRANKLY, I WILL PUT MY FAITH AND TRUST IN THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON,THE PROPHETS ISAIAH, JEREMIAH, EZEKIEL, ZEPHANIAH, AND IN CHRIST HIMSELFnot in Satan and his minions the 20th Century Faith Merchants, the 20thCentury Antichrists who teach for doctrine of God, the commandments ofmen!
If Christ was worried about homosexuality, why didn't he admonish thepeople to so refrain from it during his lifetime? The fact is, Christ wasgai as was the Apostle Paul specifically. God revealed that He didn't createany heterosexual, homosexuals nor bisexuals. Until 1890, thanks to theUS Government, the words didn't even exist. God said that He created oneman, capable of loving and being loved with his own individual personality!
The Apostle Paul, while heterosexually divorced, was also homosexuallyjilted by a berdache -- male wife, Luke. Christ himself called the veryyoung Apostle John, the beloved. Luke was 14 or 15, John was 15!
Much has been written theorizing why male-male sex might have been prohibited.Those writers are generally Catholic like Father Daniel A. Helminiak, whowrites, "The Hebrew Testament forbids homogenitality (sic) for purityreasons. Male-male sex makes one unclean." Dr. Helminiak ignores the roleof the Catholic Church, the Franciscan Fathers and the founder of the CatholicChurch, King Constantine of Constantinople played in the bastardizationof the Bible! King Constantine was the unbaptized, self-proclaimed thirteenthapostle of Christ --even though one had already been chosen and ordainednearly 300 years before -- and the man who organized for the Council ofNicaea, hammered out the Nicaean Creed where he formulated what the officialbeliefs of the Catholic Church, and had those priests who disagreed ordissented killed for heresy.
God has revealed that initially, the Israelites were forbidden to engagein idolatrous fertility worship. Fertility worship idolatry and used heterosexualintercourse and was predominately heterosexual. Because King Constantineof Constantinople had been jilted by a berdache, he made the astute pronouncementthat, "It is a scientific fact that homosexuality causes earth quakes,"and ordered the Franciscan Fathers and monks to so reflect that truth intheir translations of the Bible. Those that refused were decapitate. Theruins of Constantinople are strewn with decapitated skeletons.
If you read the verses before and after those in Leviticus, Corinthiansand Romans, the only conclusion we are able to draw from Leviticus wasthat it was telling the Israelites that any sex done in conjunction withany worship was idolatry and strictly taboo. Neither heterosexuality norhomosexuality in an of themselves make a person unclean. The thing thatmade a person unclean was the manner and purpose for which it was performedor engaged in by the parties.
14 I know, and am persuaded by the Lord Jesus, that [there is] nothingunclean of itself: but to him that esteemeth (sic) any thing to be unclean,to him [it is] unclean.
The God of the 20th Century Born-Again Christians, Saul of Tarsus evensays that, and read it again, "nothing unclean of itself."
The sad irony with Sodom and Gomorrah when viewed in its true contextis people oppose, beat and murder men and women who they perceive as homosexualbecause they are different, odd, strange, queer, effeminate, sissy andGod only knows how many other defamatory and/or derogatory names they arecalled and with which they are humiliated. Lesbian and gay men are notallowed to assimilate into society. They are made outsiders, foreigners,outcasts, psychotics and criminals in our society. They are disowned bytheir families, forcibly separated and kept distant from their children,fired from their jobs, evicted from their apartments, slandered by theirpublic officials and figures, beaten in the streets and killed at randomlike vermin. All of which is done in the name of Christianity and Judeo-Christianmorality. However, such oppression is the very sin of which the peopleof Sodom and Gomorrah were guilty and for which the cities and inhabitantsof Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. Such behavior is exactly what theBible strongly condemns repeatedly. Therefore, those who are intolerantand oppress homosexuals because of their misunderstanding of the "sin ofSodom and Gomorrah" are themselves guilty of the very sin and crime forwhich Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed and it will have been better forthe inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah than for you at the judgment.
