In response of a recent giveaway I feel it needful to make this thread. I have made the choice to make the Bible the foundation of my life and belief system and I must say I was rather blown away at the response and fervor of this community that has participated in Thez_yo's giveaway. Obviously as a believer in the Bible I do not support or condone the LGBT community but rather I view it as morally wrong.
Before you go and get all mad at me, I want to state that this thread is not meant to condemn other but is a thread to share views. I personally want to thank Thez for her generosity in such a fantastical giveaway and congrats to whomever may win. Also of note, I have been a friend to several gay people but I do not support their lifestyle. I do not support persecution of the LGBT community and would like to think I would step in if I ever saw someone beating, maiming or killing one of the stated just as I would hope someone would step in if the same were happening to me because of my views/lifestyle.
That being said here is how I feel on the subject: It is moraly wrong, God condemns it and all who continue in such sin choose the path to Hell. Romans 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,...Romans 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:...Romans 1:26-32 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: 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. 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; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 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. Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. God makes it clear that homosexuality is an abomination and a sin that will condemn one to hell if they continue in it. I fear for our nation and its views as well because God also declares Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
I know that all of us have our own beliefs and this thread is not meant to try and force my opinions or views on the rest of you, I am just sharing the truth as God has given commandment to do. Once again I know the majority of you will not regard this as the truth because I'm sure we all view our own beliefs as the truth which is why we hold such beliefs. I respect your right to your beliefs and I know they are your choice I just wanted to share my conviction out of concern for others.
Please feel free to comment while keeping in mind that per forum rules this does not turn into an argument and that others are entitled to their own opinions. Also I think this can be an interesting way to learn more about the fellow growers on this forum.
