How should the new and old testaments be handled in terms of homosexuals?

    Jesus never said one word (according to the new testament) about being gay, whether it was right or wrong.

    There's a lot in the old testament about it, but everytime I bring up one of the many evil quotes in the old testament I'm told we're essentially supposed to ignore it and that the new testament cleans the slate of the old testament. So I assume we should also ignore what it says about being gay if we should ignore what it says about genocide/infanticide and the promoting of more of those things in the future.

    So what would Jesus do? Maybe he hates gays? Maybe he thinks gays are more moral than straights? How do we know besides just a total blind guess?

    Have their own version, just change Genesis to the way they see fit. Then everybody is happy.

    Well see homosexuals, like every other person in humanity, needs to have faith in Jesus Christ and repent of their sins.

    Why would you expect some unique standard because they take pleasure from members of their same gender?

    Another post to prove your idiocy? Read 1 Corinthians chapter 6.

    The only people Jesus ever spoke up against were the Sadducees and the Pharisees. Maybe you should read a little bit about them before you try to pin God down to a position He does not have.

    Jesus loves everyone, even the gays. The New Testament does not void tho old, it fulfills it. The law in the old Testament is perfect and flawless, we are not. This it why Jesus came. Sodomy is covered as well.

    The law of the old testament is for believers to kill non-believers, even if they're family members.

    If you took the old testament seriously you'd either be in jail or dead.

    "Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?"

    Where does it say anything even remotely about being gay in there? Enlighten me

    Sure, if you're a Christian, Catholic, etc.., but would'nt you want to make a clear cut reference that you can go to? Defining their place. Same-sex friendly, where the lines are not blurred and there is no gray area..

    Different preachers and those who have "spoken" to God have continually used OR abused the good book for their own purposes, needs and interpretations.

    Then there is the Old Testament, New Testament, Book of Mormon, etc..

    A small adjustment in which you can account for everything.

    Like have . . . I don't know.

    God created Ken and created Barbie from a rib from Ken . . . then he created Edna and Eve . . . and finally Adam and Steve.

    Interpreting it would be simple.
