Please don't hurt me.I wish not to offend anyone.I have to ask though because it's bothering me.I was just wondering....does God approve of homosexuals.He loves everyone I know,but does he like them dating and getting married.I though God said that marraige was between man and woman.So does God approve,disapprove,or doesn't care if you are or not.Again I don't wish to offend anyone,but this question has been bothering me badly. Huh

God does not approve of ANY sin, and homosexuality is a sin. Smiley

Romans 1:27   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.

Leviticus 20.13 "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."

Just on this verse alone, it shows that it is a sin. This goes for a man or a woman.

Homosexuality is a sin, and therefore God does not approve of it.  Homosexuality is caused from willingness to embrace the said sin.  While it is true that some are more sussepteble (sp) to homosexuality, some are also more susseptable (again please excuse my horrific spelling) to anger, that alone however, does not justify actions taken in anger.  There is no "gay gene" or biological reason for homosexuality, it is a choice we all must come to a conclusion about.

The "stone" would be a passed judgment.  What was given is God's word on the matter.  God says it's wrong.  No stone, and if there is, He's the One throwing it.   Smiley

There is a major difference in casting a stone, and sharing God's Word. What was shared with in this thread was the fact that homosexuality is a sin, and God hates sin, But he loves the sinner. When someone says to me "Let he who has no sin cast the first stone" in a case such as this, i begin to wonder if maybe it's not anyone casting a stone at all, but the Word is doing a little toe stomping. If you tihnk the Word is casting stones, then you're in for a rude awakening as you read any of my posts, because I let God's Word do the speaking for me. Please don't go on the defensive with words "Let he who has no sin cast the first stone" because in that statement Jesus is talking about judgement and hypocrisy. Sharing God's Word and showing what He says about a subject is not judgement, and it most certainly is not hypocrisy. Forgive me if i sound a little harsh, but i believe this needs to be said. Please, if one is afraid to address the subject, let him/her be silent and learn from what may be said here. Just a few thoughts. God Bless

In His Service,
Joshua

P.S. Shemaya...God's Word is clear friend. Homosexuality is a sin and an abomination in the eyes of the Lord. Unfortunately some are compromising and saying that it's ok. "Let's accept the sinner for who he/she is." We are to love the sinner, but hate the sin. And when confronted with the Word of God some may get on the defensive...and raise up walls. We as Christians are to plant a seed and let God do the harvesting. Sharing Scripture is by no means casting a stone. I hope you aren't discouraged by what has been said on the subject on homosexuality. I hope you will continue in God's Will and in His service. God Bless you as you seek these answers and in your studies.

Off topic a bit...but...

I am angered that my workplace has passed out a memo this year forbidding the use of the word christmas or any other holiday name in decorations or cards.   It must read happy holidays or something similar.   However they had no problem proclaiming that the company would celebrate gay and lesbian weekend not to long ago.   Roll Eyes   IMO this is reverse discrimination.   I can send a card to all my co-workers in the name of homosexuality, but not in the name Christ, or Christmas.   Angry  Cry    What a backwards world we live in.

Grace and Peace!

I suppose you could say sin is a disease.. we've all got it, and Jesus is the cure.
