    The Bible Doesn't Talk About Lesbians

    There is nothing said, biblically, about women sexually preferring other women, doesn't that mean that everyone, Christians included, should now accept lesbians?

    God Spoke very clear, About Men laying with Men, and women laying with women. You can't use just 2 or 3 verses for an answer.Read all the reference Verses. When GOD saw Adam needed a companion, he made Eve,for His companion. Not another man.

    " and women laying with women"
    Where?

    "You can't use just 2 or 3 verses for an answer"

    Why not? It's only referenced 3 times in the bible and never clearly says homosexual. At least not the bible before this century when it was added by more men looking to push their own agenda.

    It was in Leviticus way before this century or the last century .Ditto for Matthew.

    Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:


    Rom 1:26 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:


    Rom 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.


    Rom 1:28 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;

    GOD LOVES THE SINNERS NOT THE SIN

    The Book of Leviticus prohibits sexual acts between men, but also prohibits wearing two types of cloth simultaneosly, growing two types of crop in a field and crossbreeding animals.
    Anyone follow these rules?

    I think the word detestable might apply to women also.

    Might apply to others too...

    I don't care what can be read from this book the fact that it has so many ridiculous notions and contradictions that I cant take it seriously . Anyway I know what I see as right and wrong and how I deal with right and wrong under different situations is quiet easy to justify and I feel contentment not paranoid. Every religion interprets the Bible different and so do the avid readers. Its a sexiest book containing old story's just as far reaching as the Dream time from the Australian natives to the Egyptians religious ideas.You will believe in what ever you grew up with 85% of the time.
    Genesis 18-19 re Sodom and Gommorrah.

    Sodom and Gomorrah was about rape, not homosexuality.

    The Bible, as quoted above is clear. I don't know how anyone could deny teachings that are so obvious. But I don't know what you mean when you ask if a Christian should accept lesbians. My own personal experience is that if you want to win a person over then you must love them unconditionally. That means that you love them knowing that you may never win them over. The battle that exists, the spiritual battle for souls, exists only because God will not force anyone to serve Him. He could have forced Satan, He could have forced Adam and Eve.

    It does: States A man shall not lays down with a man as with a women and a women will not lay down with a women as with a man." Sounds prety clear? Hate the sin but love the sinner.

    Comment below: It's referring to men only. I believe it's saying that a man should not sleep with a man in the way he would sleep with a woman. I still can't find the part where it speaks about woman that you've referenced above.
    @T=Bag

    Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads"

    That is the only scripture I can find relating to what you're saying. Can you give us the exact scripture or do you just have it mixed up?



    Bible was written by men inspired by God not women .. tells it all

    The Bible was being written around 2000 years ago. Don’t you find it the least bit curious that time marches away from those days and that we are in a culture now that is so radically different than it was way back then? If you really like how things were then and want to really get into that scene I think we need a historical theme park for all of you wanna-be, later-day-deciples so you can do your thing in a proper setting without the annoying distraction of all us sinners and Bible dodgers hounding your heals to give up your ancient crust of moldy bread.

    Human nature hasn't changed a bit, people choose not to believe back then also.

    I believe in brain washing rather than foot washing when it comes to religion. Considering what we have done to our brains awash in religion all this time...a thorough scrubbing is called for and reconsideration of our place here as Eden’s Children. The Bible has brought us an unquenched thirst for a thousand wars in Christ like sacrifice for all those Just Causes by crystalizing our oxymoron-isms as heroic deeds of deciple-ship. Not for me,thank you.
    It doesn't mention lesbians or homesexuality, but it refers to them. See the Old Testament story of Sodom and Gamorrah. The men of the city, thought the angels that were sent to Lot and his family were mere men and "wanted" them.

    Also see Romans chapter one where it talks about men lieing with men and women with women. It is clear what the subject matter is.

    Sodom and Gomorrah was about rape, not homosexuality. It also mentions nothing about lesbians. Romans (it's own version of the verse) is pertaining to unnatural sex...unnatural also included sex out of wedlock, prostitution and masturbation. It is not a clear indicator that homosexuality was wrong since homosexuality is more about the love shared between two people than it is about the sex act that not all perform. The trouble with the bible is it never covers homosexual LOVE. It only covers sex acts that even straight people are known to perform.

    True not all homosexuals perform the sexual act they love each other.
    Well thats the problem right there then, it was writte by all men :p

    lt is a wise omission.

    The old testament was very harsh on all kinds of "sin" and did not anticipate that a very accomodating Jesus Christ would enter the scene to liberalize Judaism. Because it couldn't be done, Christianity arose. Unfortunately, the reactionaries and the money changers took power in the Christian Church and turned it back into an intolerant institution. American Protestants became the most intolerant of all, burning witches in the earliest days, denying the Origin of the Species in the 19th Century, and today hating Barack Obama. You need to look at the course of religious history as a thread in the upward and downward development of man on earth.

    yes it does
