Is Homosexuality A Sin? What Did Jesus Say?

“Is THIS what God calls ‘good’?”

Is this the new building block for CIVILIZATION?

Is this the new building block for CIVILIZATION?

First, I do not believe there is such a thing as a homosexual community. I believe there is such a thing as a community that practices homosexuality. While the point seems minor, it is an important delineation. Is it possible that the tiniest fraction of the human population is curious or drawn to these practices? Perhaps. After all, animal populations show this deviation. But not in the percentages that the human population is now displaying. And we are NOT mere animals. We are soulful beings with minds & hearts to go along with our physical bodies. And we belong to a Maker to whom we owe obedience. Regardless of our personal desires or temptations. God states very clearly that he detests homosexual practices. This is stated clearly in both the Old and New Testaments. And while most homosexuals deny that Jesus spoke against the practice, he did. Jesus specifically defined marriage as between a man and a woman. NOT because of historical ‘norms’ that need special interpretation in today’s culture- but because God created us as man and woman. No historic or cultural understanding needed.

(Matt 19:3-9) “3 Some Pharisees came to him to test him. They asked, “Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any and every reason?” 4 “Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’[a] 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]? 6 So they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.” 7 “Why then,” they asked, “did Moses command that a man give his wife a certificate of divorce and send her away?” 8 Jesus replied, “Moses permitted you to divorce your wives because your hearts were hard. But it was not this way from the beginning. 9 I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except for sexual immorality, and marries another woman commits adultery.”

This passage makes it clear that ALL sex outside of marriage was sinful. And marriage can only be a man and a woman. Thus, homosexuality is automatically outside the bounds of marriage and thus, sinful in Jesus’ eyes.

I believe this is why you will almost always find that those who practice homosexuality also claim that either God is non-existent or that the Apostle Paul & Timothy (who wrote most of the New Testament and condemned this practice) was a false prophet. They fail to take Jesus’ rather clear statement into account.

Guess what? Since God is King, he sets the rules. After all, people are also tempted to cheat on their spouses, steal, lie, kill, etc. And because God forbids it, we don’t get to do it. Practicing homosexuality is the same- God said, “No.” So the answer is no!

If this community was not ashamed of their behavior, why are they all so interested in negating the Bible’s words on the matter? Why, if they are so convinced that God approves of their behavior, can’t they exist peaceably with Jesus and those who follow him? Why the rabid hate?

As for Gay Marriage, I view this as purely political. It is a means used by Progressives to destroy the family unit. Why? Because the FAMILY unit is the number one way that any society can properly teach, disperse resources and raise functional and independent citizens. Wreck this and you will get a new population that will be mentally crippled and dependent on Uncle Sam for everything. This is the number one goal of the Progressive movement: to gain complete power over its citizens by making them dependent on it for basic needs.

And Gay Adoption? This is purely and simply child abuse. In every way possible way. Sexual identity and sexual role modeling are almost 100% learned in the home as children soak in everything between their parents. They decide what they want to be as a man or woman and what they don’t want to be- all by watching their parents’ interactions. Uncle Bob or Auntie Kathy will NOT be able to put in the face time to fill this role in any child’s life. Without this type of daily learning, a child must struggle terribly to understand themselves as a man or as a woman. As sexual identity is one of the most important ways in which we define ourselves, I believe this is intentional child abuse and should NEVER be allowed. Are there children whose parents have died? Yes, and it’s very tragic & tough for those kids. But why would we intentionally put children in this situation? Adoption rules are extremely strict- they discriminate on income, home cleanliness, education & age. Homosexuality should also be a discriminatory factor.Many, many lukewarm Christians have never read their Bible and so are not armed properly for spiritual warfare. Thus, they condone that which they should not. They actually help satan destroy souls- and our country. Many will claim (because they heard it somewhere- kinda like ‘separation of church & state’) that the Old Testament Law is DEAD. Completely false. That is about the most irresponsible paraphrase of Apostle Paul’s deep thoughts concerning Jewish laws that made people DO rituals to make themselves righteous before God again. He merely stated that the old rules about sacrifices, cleansing rituals, eating rituals, priesthood rituals, etc, were no longer necessary because Jesus was the final sacrifice that would clean us and make us righteous before God. Jesus’ body & blood were so far more superior as a sacrifice to God than any number of beef shanks or birds, or cups of wheat could ever be. His sacrifice of himself was so magnificent in God’s eyes that it SUFFICED for all of us, for all time. THAT was Paul’s point. NOT that the entire Old Testament, which displays God’s personality and views on moral/ immoral behavior, is somehow negated! Jesus was EXTRA clear on the matter when he said,

“17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.”

Thus all Old Testament laws and statements that judge homosexual sex as sinful remain standing as they had nothing to do with purification or priesthood rites to obtain righteousness before God. In addition, IF the Old Testament ‘Law’ were all dead, so would the ten commandments be. Nonsense.

And here are the laws about homosexuality written in several books of the Old and New Testaments:

Romans 1:18-32 “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Timothy 1: 8-11 8 But we know that the law is good if a man use it lawfully,
9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,
10 for whoremongers, for those who defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjurers, and for whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine
11 according to the glorious Gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

Leviticus 20:13 13“‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

Leviticus 18:20-29 20 “‘Do not have sexual relations with your neighbor’s wife and defile yourself with her.
21 “‘Do not give any of your children to be sacrificed to Molek, for you must not profane the name of your God. I am the Lord.
22 “‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
23 “‘Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.
24 “‘Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is how the nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled. 25 Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. 26 But you must keep my decrees and my laws. The native-born and the foreigners residing among you must not do any of these detestable things, 27 for all these things were done by the people who lived in the land before you, and the land became defiled. 28 And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as it vomited out the nations that were before you.
29 “‘Everyone who does any of these detestable things—such persons must be cut off from their people.

Duet 22:5 5 A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this..

Judges 19:22-24 22 While they were enjoying themselves, some of the wicked men of the city surrounded the house. Pounding on the door, they shouted to the old man who owned the house, “Bring out the man who came to your house so we can have sex with him.”
23 The owner of the house went outside and said to them, “No, my friends, don’t be so vile. Since this man is my guest, don’t do this outrageous thing.

1Kings 15:11-13 1 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, as did David his father.
12 And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
13 And also Maachah his mother, even her he removed from being queen, because she had made an idol in a grove; and Asa destroyed her idol and burned it by the Brook Kidron.

2 Kings 23:4-7 4 And the king commanded Hilkiah the high priest, and the priests of the second order and the keepers of the door, to bring forth out of the temple of the Lord all the vessels that were made for Baal and for the Asherah pole and for all the host of heaven; and he burned them outside Jerusalem in the fields of Kidron, and carried the ashes of them unto Bethel.
5 And he put down the idolatrous priests whom the kings of Judah had ordained to burn incense in the high places in the cities of Judah and in the places round about Jerusalem, those also who burned incense unto Baal, to the sun and to the moon and to the planets, and to all the host of heaven.
6 And he brought out the Asherah pole from the house of the Lord outside Jerusalem unto the Brook Kidron, and burned it at the Brook Kidron, and stamped it small to powder, and cast the powder thereof upon the graves of the children of the people.
7 And he broke down the houses of the sodomites that were by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the Asherah pole.

    This is an amazing references and teaching to how God wants us all to live. Short-little-rebel you are an inspiration to all Christians. With your words I am sure you have reached many that want to follow in your steps. God Bless You!!

    • Short Little Rebel says:

      Well, the question needed to be answered. So many people considering homosexuality are asking themselves this very question. When I was in my 20’s and living in San Francisco, I condoned homosexuality because I was literally ignorant of what the bible said about the topic. Once I saw it with my own eyes, I changed my mind. Well, that and the nasty behavior of gays at gay pride parades.

  2. April says:

    Repent of your sins and invite Jesus to come into your life and make him Lord and Savior over your life and follow Him. You will live a life of blessings and unspeakable favor day after day and He will pour out His bountiful love on you now and forever. Glory to God! Thank you Jesus!

  4. Jason Owen says:

    I enjoyed you article and it helped me win a debate with a friend. I would like to add to your statement about ‘marriage equality.’

    How do we extend a concept like ‘equality’ to ONLY Homosexual and Heterosexual couples?

    By that, I am asking, where does it stop? Now usually when I broach this topic I get answers like ‘bestiality’ which is erroneous because animals cannot ‘voice’ their acceptance to choose to marry someone or not. However, I feel that it does open the door to polygamy or poly-amorous relationships. For example, if two men get married and then invite a woman to join them in their marriage. That woman has NO legal authority to be in that marriage no matter how the two men feel. So, if one of the two men got sick, the woman would have to live with whatever decision the spouse made for health care for the other man. How is that ‘equal?’ It would not be and I feel that will be the next ‘civil rights’ battle. Every time I bring this notion up, my marriage equality friends offer statements like, “well that is different and not part of this problem!” or “what’s wrong with polygamy?”

    So, am I wrong to think that they WANT marriage to be destroyed OR they KNOW that marriage equality has an inherent problem but they do not want to address it?

    Your thoughts on this matter please.

    • Short Little Rebel says:

      Hi Jason, well, your instincts have served you well. Of course marriage equality is the door that will be used to accept all forms of deviant and sinful sex- bestiality included. The reality is this: bestiality proponents, polygamy proponents and pedophiles have ALL begun entering law suits calling for legal equality. Jason, God KNOWS what he created when he created man. The bible is not a book of, ‘no’s’. The bible is a book that gives human beings the perfect way to be happy on this earth and beyond. God’s commands and wishes are exactly like what I say to my kids. I tell them not to stand on the counter because if they do, they can fall and break their neck. I don’t do it to be bossy for its own sake. God knows that human sexuality can be a wonderful thing. It was provided for our mutual happiness. But if sex is not within the confines of marriage, both sexes become debased by it. Eating is a good thing. Eating too much is deadly. Drinking wine is something we do to remember our king. Drinking too much wine will cause you to throw up. God gave us all the pleasures of the world. and he told us exactly how to enjoy them. He KNEW that if sex were handled outside of the manner in he prescribed, it would lead to all sorts of illness. And it has. Literally. Note: “Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” I believe that AIDS is the ‘penalty’ they received into their bodies.

      The very first people who began pushing to make sodomy legal on the federal level KNEW ahead of time that destroying marriage was their goal. That was just the first legal toe hold. The moment that was legal, the door was open to civil unions. Then, the door was open to gay marriage/ gay adoption. Then, the door is opened for every form of deviant sex- including pedophilia. (I kid you not- there is a group called the North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) calling for the legalization of pedophilia.) The strategy was set well before the first push to legalize sodomy.

      Homosexuality is one of the very strongest pillars of the Progressive take over in the World. Their goal: destroy everything that makes a society strong: divide and conquer. Here are the things that make a country exceedingly strong: FAMILY, LOVE OF GOD, LOVE OF COUNTRY. Destroy those things and you will be able to destroy. Homosexuality is being used to destroy the most efficient way a society has to raise children and dessiminate resources: the family unit. Bowing to the wishes of the 1% destroys that unit. Broken families created broken children. Broken children grow up to broken adults. Broken adults are weak. Weak adults can be manipulated. There are books that have been written from as long ago as 1920’s which blatantly outline this strategy. Saul Alinsky wrote Rules for Radicals which also outline these tactics. and the Progressives have followed this strategy with unmatched determination. Bottom line, the use of homosexuality is a well planned strategy that is now bearing fruit. The goal: destroy the family unit. All part of a whole strategy to weaken America. The goal: after destroying the might of America, people will panic. Then, swoop in with all the solutions- namely, One World Government with some extremely powerful people at the pinnacle of that monstrosity.

    So I would be careful you Paulinean whom are misusing the bible for your own selfish bigotry to throw rocks in glass houses. You have no right to condemn others as long as you are unrepentant when it comes to your own “sins”. There are no sins. What consenting adults do behind closed doors, is none of your goddamn business. So start cleaning up your own bullshit before dictating to others how they live their lives. And Christianity does not have any monopoly on morality. In fact, I find Paulineanism (the dogma most self proclaimed Christians are following) highly immoral intolerant, and borderline psychotic. Same goes for the genocidal old testament god., Yahwe is by all definitions the most vile, disgusting character ever to be conjured up by bronze age nomads who didnt know any better.,.

    • Short Little Rebel says:

      Hi Bohemian, the term, ‘Paulism’ makes me laugh. If one part of the bible isn’t true, then none of it is. Including the existance of God. Let me tell you this: if God exists and can’t even keep a little book together the way he wants, then he isn’t much of a God, is he? Does that sound like the Person who made every atom and all the physics around it? I don’t think so. Either God is God or he doesn’t exist. The only place to learn about God is the bible. So, it is unreasonable to claim that only parts of the bible are correct. If God is God, (which he is), then he most certainly can make and keep a book together juuuuuust the way he wants. So, either the bible is ALL true or you can just ignore it. That is point number one. Now, as to my sin. Where did I say I never sinned? I wrote an article that outlines the BIBLE’S statements concerning homosexual behavior. You don’t like it because it condemns you and prevents you from the lust you wish you could just explore at will. What you do behind closed doors isn’t my business. But when you try to shove it down my kids’ throats, it becomes my business. Gays are not content with their own damnable behavior. No. They need to have all society call it ‘good’. And because God won’t call it good, most homosexuals then leave God too. Only that is satan’s illusion. You can never leave God. He will always see what is done in secret. There is no escaping his eyes. No matter how much you hate him or those who follow him. I am not trying to judge you. I am trying to open your eyes. So that you can come to Christ the same way I did: in humility and a deep understanding that you can’t save yourself. That you NEED Jesus in your life. And to accept the eternal life he holds in his holy hands. But you can’t do that as long as you don’t repent of your sins. And if you repent, you can’t just keep on doing it and saying it is good! THAT is the point of this article. Not to judge. But to help you. But I think you already know that. Sex isn’t worth losing trillions of years of true LIFE, is it?

  6. bohemianwriter1 says:

    Well, adulterers, and Christians rapists are no better than any eunuch that Jesus spoke of. Eunochs of that time was and is the equivalent to gays today. And he NEVER condemned them, but blessed them as opposed to self righteous bible thumpers whom are cherry picking from the bible to hide behind when exposing your bigotry, hypocrisy and hatred towards people whom are born different than you.
    Religion is an excellent way of spreading hatred towards anything you don’t like…

    • Short Little Rebel says:

      Bohemian, why do you think I hate anyone? Because I tell the truth about what the bible says about homosexual behavior? In what other way do Christians ‘use religion’ to hate other types of people? You are just thrashing in your discomfort, Bo. Listen. I care about you and all people who are engaging in lustful, sinful sex. I would say that rapists are worse than homosexual behavior! That also includes terrible violence. I agree about adulterers. They are just as bad as those involved in homosexual sex. As to eunochs, I don’t think you understand the term. Eunochs had their testicles cut off so that they couldn’t have sex at all- they were used to protect harems. As to Jesus blessing eunochs, I’m not sure what you mean. Can you please provide a scripture reference so that I can understand what you are saying? Jesus loves everyone- you, me, everyone. Jesus offers the gift of everlasting life to everyone. But every one of us must first REPENT. That is mandatory. Repenting doesn’t mean we will never sin. If it did, none of us would be saved. It means that you acknowledge that you DO sin. The problem with homosexual culture today is that they refuse to say they are sinning. Thus, there can be no repentence. Thus, there can be no salvation and forgiveness. That is the problem. Listen, Bohemian. I can hear and feel your pain. You want to be close to Jesus. You desperately want it. And you would like to believe that it is I or other Christians that prevent that. Not so! It is only your own refusal to kneel to Christ’s own commands that prevent you from being close to him. We ALL sin- me too- I freely admit it! But because I KNOW I sin, I love Christ all the more for his forgiveness. But does that mean I can blithely go back to doing the exact sins over and over and over again? Can I just sin and then say, ‘Oops, sorry!’ knowing in our hearts that we will definitely do it again? no. That isn’t really an apology, is it?

      Sex is a choice. Outside of rape, no one forces it upon us. We can live without sex for the rest of our lives- easily. Once you give your life to Christ’s great commission, you start to understand that Christ wants ALL of us. Literally. He wants all of our life- not just a holy sex life. Ha! That is the least of it. He commands us to lay down our lives for our fellow man. That means, DIE for your neighbor. I think death is a little harder to accept that heterosexual sex or no sex, don’t you? Bohemian. It is easy to come to Christ. Just say you are sorry. Be sorry. I know you already are. Let him minister to your broken heart. Let him HELP you. Considering that you will have TRILLIONS of years of bliss with him, do you really think indulging sexual whims on this earth is worth it? You need to look at the entire picture. Satan wants you to close your eyes tight. He hates you and desires nothing more than to hurt God by hurting you, his beloved child. Forget him and put your eyes on Jesus. Perhaps you say to yourself, I CAN’T give up homosexual sex! I can’t! I say, ‘You are capable of even greater things than this” through Jesus Christ, the Son of God. YOU are worth so much more to God than you think. LEAN into God heavily. He will carry you. And when you are done with this miserable life on earth, you will have the greatest satisfaction known to man: you pleased God, your father in heaven. And he will tell you so when you see him face to face. Bohemian! See the bigger picture! Don’t let satan pull you down. I promise you that I don’t hate you. Sometimes I shock you because otherwise you won’t even stop in your tracks to hear me or others like me. But behind the shocking words is love. I LOVE you enough to give my life to you. Please hear me and save yourself. Jesus is coming very, very soon.

  7. Ladybug says:

    I can’t help feeling sad for people who have issues with the body they were born into, however, we do not know all of God’s plans, or why they have to go through having emotions they did not ask for, nor know how to cope with. I leave all that up to God, for he has wisdom, which we can never know. My attitude is, if God disapproves of something, then, I follow his lead. I may not understand all of God’s reasons for why he does things as he does, but I do trust them.

    • Short Little Rebel says:

      Agreed. And Ladybug, Christ asked us for our ENTIRE LIVES, not just the sacrifice of one part. He would have us lay down our entire life in his service. Sex? ha. That is minor in comparison to what he has really asked for. Homosexuals suffer from untamed lust. So do a lot of heterosexuals. We need to give up our human desires and replace them ALL with the desires of God. Only after we are born again will we receive the compensation for this loss of life. I believe in that. And I live it. And the ironic thing is this: by giving up all my own desires, I have found complete bliss in this life. It is the irony of Christ- those who give their life will find it (even here on earth!) and those who seek to fulfill their lives on earth will lose it (even here on earth!). I don’t feel sorry for homosexuals. They are not a special victim class. We ALL have our crosses to bear. And God IS fair. I trust in his judgement implicitly.

    • Tony says:

      Short lil rebel, you are awesome! In response to Ladybug, God created man perfect but man CHOSE to follow Satan from the beginning. Seeing that man made such a detrimental choice God said in Genesis 3:16 : I will increase your trouble in pregnancy and your pain in giving birth.

      We are all born in sin, sin causes abnormalities, deformities etc. These afflictions are not from God in as much but a result of sin. All the troubles of this world are a result of sin. We are fortunate that God allowed his perfect son to take on mans form and absorb our sins, past, present and future. Obviously we are not all born Gay, its a choice for many people, I don’t care how they try to argue their point.But, we all are born in Sin.. In addition, We all have the holy spirit in us, we just CHOOSE as Adam and Eve so eloquently demonstrated, to allow our sinful nature to take over.. Adam and Eve didn’t have a sinful nature at first, but they were vulnerable to temptation. Each one of us know very well, before we commit any act of good or bad whether its what we should do….

      And for the people stating we are not under the law, Short Lil Rebel is absolutely CORRECT.. When God created man, he specifically said “Let us make man in our image” Who do you think he was referring to? He was referring to the trinity…. God the Father, God the son, God the Holy Spirit… Jesus was present at the beginning and will continue to be until the end. The Old Testament and the law still stands as Jesus said in Matthew 5:17-18 ” Do not think I have come to abolish the law of the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until Heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law UNTIL EVERYTHING IS ACCOMPLISHED”.

      Short lil rebel, What I have found is the truth has been watered down, mainly because some preachers or churches feel the truth is not popular.Jesus said ” In the last days men will be lovers of pleasure and all the characteristics we are discussing on this site will be also prevalent in the Church…

      Great Job !!

    This article was well interpreted and well delivered by the author. God bless the heart and life of the writer for his wisdom because it is clear that she has the wisdom to expose the lies that homosexual activists feed to the world and corrupt mankind. I will recommend this article to anyone who is trying to understand the Lord’s stance on homosexuality. So from all the way from Grenada, I say thank you and may the Lord bless you!

  9. Tim Clark says:

    What a load of shit. God orders, condones and personally commits Rape, Slavery, Torture, Child Abuse including child murder, Animal and Human Sacrifice, Murder and Genocide, Stealing and Lying. Then there’s God being a supporter of Rape and Pedophilia. Not to mention Cannibalism and more. So tell me why that greatest evil mythological monster of all time in fictional literature “God”, is good. I mean after all, God does make the 3 worst mass murders of all time, Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and Mao Zedong, look like saints. Killing more than all 3 combined. I mean God does kill over 31 million people Excluding Noah’s Flood, Sodom and Gomorrah, the many beasts, plagues, natural disasters God created just to kill people etc.. Near 3 million only where where numbers are given

    And don’t believe me? I’ll just let God tell you himself

    “I kill … I wound … I will make mine arrows drunk with blood, and my sword shall devour flesh” Deuteronomy 32.39-42

    And if you ask why God said sword? Because man created God. The unimaginable evil of God and his killing sprees were the deaths from wars and battles of Rome. Not to mention the evil God tells you to do. Like killing disobedient children in Deuteronomy 21:18-21 of the New Testament. And I don’t wanna hear shit about the evils of God from the Old Testament and it’s no longer valid.

    Clearly the Old Testament is to be abided by until the end of human existence itself. None other then Jesus said so in Matthew 5:17-19 of the NEW TESTAMENT. An example is killing disobedient children in Deuteronomy 21:18-21 of the NEW TESTAMENT. The bible was created by copying many gods and religions that predate just the idea of God and Christianity. Sumer is a great example of a religion that existed long before God and Christianity were even a thought. Then there’s Kemetic, Greek Mythology, Norse Mythology, Paganism and more

    And lastly, why has the bible been edited and rewritten all throughout time? Not to mention the original bible was banned to a library on the outskirts of Jerusalem. Emperor Constantine did that after realizing instead of scaring the shit out of people with pure evil, He should do lure idiots in with bullshit. And 666? The numerical value of Nero Caesar’s name in both Greek and Hebrew. There is pure evil of that biggest hypocrite of all time God, all throughout the bible. Christians are lucky if they’ve ever opened one

    READ THE BIBLE. I guarantee you that most Christians would turn atheistic if they knew what was inside the bible. After all, the bible has created more atheists in the last 50 years than EVERYTHING else combined has in the last 2000 years. Christians are only bigoted, dishonest, hypocritical, adulterous, murderous etc anyway. Just look at our prison population. Over 50% Christians while only 0.07% atheists are in prison. 0.09% if you include the people who chose not to state their belief. Showing you that Christians are most commonly “evil” so to say. While people who don’t believe in iron age bullshit(the bible) are barely criminal at all. Does explain why religious regions are far more criminal than atheistic regions

      Hi Tim. Most of the time, when I get such a angry comment, I just delete it. But I sense in you a real need for biblical answers. The fact that you are commenting on this article is revealing as well. You must be practicing homosexuality right now and have come to this article to see the biblical response from Jesus. And it made you feel trapped and angry. I can understand that.

      All your statements are so broad and false that it is difficult to respond to them. But I will try my best. I believe I know where you are coming from.

      1) God is a terrible person because the bible tells of how he killed many people. The wrath and anger of God, especially as depicted in the Old Testament is the proof you feel you have to basically say he is horrible.
      2) You deny that people who say, “The Old Testament is no longer valid” because you see that the Old Testament was meant to be valid forever until the end of time.
      3) You claim that the bible has been re-written over time and so must actually be the work of human beings and not God. Therefore, everything in it is just made up and we are not bound by it. In fact, because of this, God doesn’t even exist- he was made up by people.
      4) You bring questionable statistics to say that Christians are bad people and so-called atheists are good people because more Christians are in prison than atheists.
      5) You claim that the bible itself has created so-called atheists.

      Ok. Now. Let me explain, before I begin, WHY I am answering these points. There is only one explanation: the Lord has asked me to. The Holy Spirit sometimes just makes me pause before I hit that ol’ delete button. And he tells me to answer kindly and sincerely. So, that is what I will do here. I feel your pain. So I want to help.

      You are correct in saying that ‘It’s in the Old Testament so it is no longer valid’ is a FALSE statement. Indeed, those are very ignorant Christians who never study the bible. Jesus himself said that not one letter or even stroke of a pen will disappear from the bible until he returns. He also stated CLEARLY that he did not come to negate the Law (Old Testament), but to fulfill it. The Old Testament stands. And every single aspect of it stands. So, you are very correct in that. And you are also correct to say that God can be very terrible. Very terrifying. And you are CORRECT to say that God most certainly brought armies against one another which resulted in tens of thousands of deaths at any given time. Children too. All correct. But that is exactly what is missing from our Christian society today- HONESTY about the nature of God. You know, one of my most hated sayings is, “Every life is precious to God.’ Adherents to that motto haven’t read the bible. Every human life is NOT precious to God. Also, I hate, ‘Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin.’ Again, not true about either God or Jesus. God most certainly hated the people who committed grievous sins against him. To say otherwise is to lie about the bible. Why should we lie? We have a God who can be very terrible. Human life is not to him what it is to us. But the real question is this: Does that make God BAD? EVIL? And the answer is, ‘no’. It just makes him AWESOME- literally.

      The bible describes human beings as pots and God the potter. He makes some pots for common use and he makes some pots for treasures. He can throw away the pots he formed with his hands that did not please him. Why? Because he is the potter! he is our creator and can really do with us whatever he likes. And if the pot doesn’t like it, it really can’t do a thing about it. You don’t like the power that God has over you. But I love the power God has over me. Because he is strong against my enemies. He protects not only my physical life but my eternal life. Absolutely no man on earth- no army of men- can take my life away from me if God forbids it. I want to be on his side. It is right for him to crush the nasty pots. They CHOSE to disrespect him, deny his existence, refuse to thank him for all the good they have and they intentionally set their hearts in complete and utter disobedience to his commands. Why should he keep that pot? THAT is the question. Would you keep a dog that ripped your child’s body to shreds? No. You would kill that dog. If you, a mere human being, can make this judgement over a dog, then how can God not make this judgement over a human? Of course he can.

      But does that make him BAD or EVIL? no. And you know it. I won’t argue with you on that point. God said that he has written his laws on EVERY HUMAN HEART and THEREFORE, no one will have an excuse when they see him someday. That is why EVERY ancient human culture, no matter how far apart and isolated they were from another, understood the concept of God. At the minimum, they knew that this life did not end in death. We all KNOW God exists- which is exactly why you feel trapped and angry. You wish you could get rid of him. But you can’t.

      God is GOOD. He created man for one purpose: to have LIFE with him FOREVER. We are not meant to die after a mere 80 or so years. No. Those are the years we have been given to find God. To CHOOSE God over the world (satan). To CHOOSE life. That’s it. We were created to be his children and to live forever with him in bliss. He wants our LOVE, not our blind obedience. So, he gives us a choice: satan & the world or him. One is in your face, instant gratification and lust while the other is far higher, far more joyful but harder to find- in fact, the path to this incredible life is hidden. It is hidden behind many bushes and the path is thin with rocks in it. Those rocks are the lusts of the world- like your lust for men and gratuitous, easy, frequent and immoral sex. Those put blinders on you. Those represent your choice for the easy ‘now’ instead of the far better ‘later’.

      If God created us for this ONE purpose and we fail to become his child, then why would he let us keep going along? What is the point of that? No, he most certainly has no intention of having a creation around that serves no purpose. Especially if it is wholly evil.

      As for God and his view of human life. First, what difference does it make WHEN we die? As a child or as an adult? We will all die. God is timeless and so can’t see death as we do. As the only point of these years is to find him, having more years really serves no purpose (except to help others find him, as I am trying to do for you now). And God is God. He can protect the minds of children if they are killed. He can do anything. All I know is that God has a very special protection over the children of this world. I doubt he would have them suffer or be pained by HIS hand. They died- but neither you nor I can know HOW they died.

      The times that God brought war upon the Israelis or anyone else, it was 100% justified. That is the part of the story you left out in your comment above. God warned Israel for over 400 years to stop worshipping other gods. He was horrified that they were sacrificing children to both him and their pagan idols. He was sickened by their sexual orgies. They were liars, thieves, murderers, slanderers, and did every kind of evil before his eyes. They deserved death (as we both do) well before he brought it. He sent prophet after prophet to warn them. But he was patient to the point of fault. You are the one who has not read your bible. I am AMAZED at how long he waited and how many times he tried. They brought it upon themselves. And look, if you don’t believe in God, then why blame God for the deaths brought by the Assyrian and Babylonian armies? Those are the times when the Jews literally starved to death and ate their own children. But God DID bring those armies. And those armies did what all armies did at that time. That was NORMAL war back then.

      You say that because God FINALLY brought the justice he had withheld for over 400 years, he is a cruel God. But I see an incredibly LOVING and Patient God.

      Look, you and I are just covered in sin. Both of us. The ONLY difference between you and me is that I have been blessed enough to SEE that I WANT to live forever with God in bliss. And that I gratefully accept the incredible gift of Jesus Christ so that I can do so. I am so happy that Christ did what he did- he died so that I could believe. He rose again to prove to me what will also happen to me. I will also be resurrected to a new body- just like his was after he was resurrected! And I am happy to escape the cold grave under the ground. I am looking forward to being glorified with Jesus and all my friends. WHY don’t you want that too??? That is the real question. Satan is using sex to derail you and to bury you in the cold hard earth. WHY DIE?? Over SEX? How can that be worth it to you? I would not only give up sex- but all that I have to have this gift. Who doesn’t want to live forever- and in perfect contentment, excitement, interest, passion, wholeness, health, joy, friendship..?? Who? Sex isn’t worth it. No. Nothing is worth it. Don’t let satan poison your mind. All that he has told you about God are lies- which deep down, you know. You just want to do what you want to do and STILL have the approval of God. But one can not forget that he IS just and he will end your life if you fail to find Jesus. Humble yourself. Jesus promised to FORGIVE ALL our sins if we but confess them to him. Pour your heart out to him. Give him the full burden of your dark heart and let him clean it out. He can and will. He did this for me and for many, many others. “Heaven is in your midst,” Jesus said, ‘if you have the eyes to see it.’ I know what he meant. I am in heaven now. My life has been transformed from utter darkness to complete joy in Christ. That could you be too. Let go of this anger. it is stupid. Trust in Jesus. Sin is not what truly separates us from God. It is a failure to ask for forgiveness for our sins that does. I do hope and pray you will hear me. That you will hear the voice of God. Do you see the time I have spent writing to you? That is GOD who loves you who commanded me to do so. Look around and see how many people I write like this to. Mostly I laugh or delete their posts because they are hopelessly lost. But you are DIFFERENT! God sees in you a valuable pot. But you must come to him. Do it sooner rather than later. Don’t worry about the future. Don’t worry about what you will be tempted to do. Just take this step. And Jesus, the King of all, will hold you up and help you. Just as he has done for me.
