    It's not that the bible says anything about 'putting to death' any man who lies with a man as he lies with a woman.. :)

    Of course, like most modern christians, you can go right ahead and ignore that. I mean, it's not like the bible is to be taken seriously, or followed, right? :eek:

    I find this kind of offensive. I mean was all of that really needed. You can be bisexual and a christian,God loves all of his children equally.It does not mean you do not take the bible or God seriously. All you need to believe is that Jesus died on the cross for your sins. No one is perfect,everyone sins. God knows that.

    Um, the bible is meant to be the 'word of god', if you don't take it seriously then your denying the god of the bible exists, your effectively making up your own version of god to fit your beliefs/morals. As for jesus dying for all our sins that gives a magical get out of jail free card to all sinners? We can sin as much as we like but its ok because believing in jesus automatically cleanses those sins as long as we say a prayer stating that we're sorry before bed?

    :i'm sorry: I just find it hypocritical that gays, people that enjoy a bit of fornicating, drunks, blasphemers, etc, etc, etc all preach that they love the christian god when the bible makes it so clear that he HATES them all and will send them to burn in hell when they die. Not just that but people deliberately misinterpret the story of jesus, yes he died on the cross for our sins, but the idea behind that is your forgiven your sins if you repent and turn to god and jesus, giving up your sinful ways. So yep, its ok to be gay, but if you believe in god its not ok because you know his stance on gays and need to stop your sinning for your soul to be saved.

    *sigh* Why can't people see mainstream religion for what it is and why can't people who feel in their hearts that there is a supreme deity find one of the many religions that truly does preach love and tolerance both in word and deed.

    He NEVER said he hated them. I think you need to read again. God loves all. God doesn't hate. If being gay is wrong God treats it jut liek any other sin. it says in the Bible that no sin is greater than another. So if gays are going to hell so arnt liars and thieves and every other sinner. this is ridiculous. Ugh im sick of this.
