I don’t really know where to begin with this one. According to everything I have read in the Bible, God doesn’t seem to approve. According to everything I have read in the Bible, God also doesn’t seem to approve of lying, murder, stealing, bad-mouthing your parents, wanting what your neighbor has, rape, child sacrifice, adultery, and so on. He doesn’t seem to weigh one sin heavier than another. The only sin God says will not be forgiven is blaspheming the Holy Spirit. I heard of a young man who got into Satanism, killed both of his parents, went to jail, and converted to Christianity before he was executed. Guess what… he went to heaven according to the Bible. He was forgiven.
One of my uncles died as a result of complications from AIDS. He was homosexual. Right before he died he told my dad that he was good with God and had trusted the remainder of his life to Jesus. According to the Bible, he went to heaven. He was forgiven.
Another of my uncles is HIV positive. He has a life partner who is also HIV positive. He lost his previous life partner due to complications with the virus. He believes in Jesus and acknowledges that He died for him.
God says we shouldn’t judge anyone. That He, and He alone, is the judge of His creation.
I have to admit that I think a woman’s body is beyond beautiful. But that doesn’t make me a lesbian. I think it makes me a person who appreciates what God has created.
I also think a man’s body is powerfully attractive. But that doesn’t mean I am now bi-sexual. Uh uh. I happen to recognize a good thing when I see it.
I cannot fathom doing to another woman what my husband does to me when we are intimate. I also cannot imagine my husband doing to another man what I do to him when we are intimate. But that doesn’t mean I am to hate anyone who does such things.
If you learn nothing else while reading the Bible, learn this… God is love.
1 John 4:8 Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.
Do you believe He died for ALL of us?
Or just SOME of us?
But God demonstrates His own love for us in this:
While we were still sinners, Christ died for us
