I would really appreciate it if you would stop using the term “lesbos.” It’s derogatory.

@Saralohrbach I’m not going to fight with you anymore on this because you’re not willing to move an inch on something you don’t know anything about. If you think it’s a choice, you think that. I’m just wasting my time fighting with you about this.

Okay I know people are going to get on me a lot for saying this, but I’m going to day it anyway because it is what I really think. The Bible is the Word of God. He sent that word through a lot of different people and they wrote it down and spread it. However, humans are flawed. Some of the people responsible for writing the Bible might have made small errors, or their writing may have been influenced by the standards of the time they lived in. This can be shown in that Matthew, Mark, Luke and John give slightly different accounts of Jesus\’s life, and other small discrepancies. We have to understand that although the Bible is the Word of God, it has been somewhat adulterated by the fact that it was actually written down by humans. They were influenced by outside factors. For instance, it says in the Bible not to wear clothing with mixed cloth and not to eat shrimp. Both of these things are kind of ridiculous. I don\’t think God has a particular opposition to blue jeans. For this reason, the best way to look at the Bible is to look at the major themes. Love, honesty, compassion, etc. Homosexuality simply is not one of those. It is just a vaguely and insignificantly mentioned as the mixed cloth rule. It was influenced by the traditions of the time when it was written. LOVE is of course the biggest theme of the Bible and I think that God is more than happy whenever there is love, regardless of who it involves.

@Maggielouh Very well said. Love has no gender because love=love.

I think that if a person was homosexual and they come to Christ, they should repent from their lifestyle because living homosexually is a sin

I agree with Maggielouh. Why?

There are different types of hormones for both men and women. These are testosterone and estrogen. Women naturally have more estrogen and men have more testosterone. Sometimes, though, in the development of a child in the mother’s womb, a baby girl may get more testosterone than normal, making her appearance more manly (broader shoulders, smaller hips, but still female). Since her hormones are out of balance she most likely will be attracted to women more than men. Same with some men who are homosexual: more than likely they have more estrogen in their body than normal and are therefore more feminine and attracted to men. Even though they have an abnormal balance of hormones, the women are still female and the men are still male. That’s what I mean by those who are homosexual are born with it, and that they don’t have a choice.

Homosexuality in men is caused by the presence of H-Y antibodies in a fetus, which prevent the fetus’brain from developing in a male-typical pattern (Blanchard, 2001). This happens when the H-Y antigens (which cause male-typical development) pass from the fetus to the mother through the placenta. The antigens are a foreign substance to the mother, so her body produces antibodies, which pass to the fetus and cause fetus to not produce as much testosterone. Hence, it isn’t a choice, it’s a chemical difference in the brain. God wouldn’t allow that to happen if he didn’t want people to be that way.

If God had intended it why would he have forbidden it? I believe that homosexuals are the people who God has called to have the gift of celibacy, however Satan causes them to be tempted with unnatural desires.

Just because you have to overcome homosexuality doesn’t mean God wants you to be celibate. It’s like any other sin, it has to be overcome. There are plenty of ex-gays who are now in natural marriage; which is totally ok. Celibacy is a choice someone makes, to remain holier for God. “If any marry, he has not sinned.” (And that does NOT refer to gay marriage; when it was written such a thing, I am fairly certain, had never been considered.

Where’d the idea come from anyway?

Kida – It definitely had been considered. Alexander the Great and Julius Caesar and hundreds of other historical figures were gay or bisexual

I personally think that being attracted to the same or both genders isn’t natural. I am not here to argue but to get my point of view across. When God created Adam, He created Eve as a companion for Adam. I don’t believe homosexuality is okay because it says in the bible in Leviticus 18:22 “You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” And although some people may come up with the statement of ” Men wrote the bible therefor has some flaw and leading them to think that homosexuality isn’t as wrong as the bible states. Then there are more things that would have to be flawed that would make the bible full of errors. If God created Adam and Eve, then shouldn’t that be an example of how God created relationships to be, between a man and a woman. I strongly believe this, although I do accept people for who they are and not judge them. I don’t agree, but Jesus would choose love over hatred. Jesus loves everyone. Everyone. We all have different views and trust me it’s not worth arguing over.

What I was saying was the solution to homosexuality isn’t to try to make homosexuals be attracted to the opposite gender. If they have no attraction to either gender, that is fine. I’ve seen so many people trying to make gays be attracted to the opposite gender to cure them of their “gayness”. They simply need to not be attracted to their own gender. If they have heterosexual attractions thats fine and its also fine if they have no sexual attractions whatsoever.

Guys, here’s the thing. A homosexual attraction is not “love”.

If you think that, you don’t know what love is. There are a few different kinds of love. There is:
1) Brotherly love. “Love thy neighbor as thyself” kind of love. This is nonsexual and should extend to everybody.
2) Unconditional, selfless love. Believe it or not, this is the kind that God commanded when he said, “husbands, love your wives”. He didn’t command that they be romantic to each other.
3) But there is also, romantic love. Which according to the Bible is not a hormone cocktail, but instead it is the unique harmony God created a man and a woman to share. Men and women balance each other out. They have contrasting and complimentary attributes. God made them that way. Physical intimacy is merely a picture of the sort of spiritual intimacy that husbands and wives are supposed to have. “For this reason, a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife.”
