    we all know that the gay people get a rough time due to Leviticus but I think Christians aren't following jesus properly b/c I have yet to see someone stoned for blaspheming the lord as instructed here:

    Leviticus 24:16 - Passage Lookup - New International Version - BibleGateway.com

    I think Christians either need to start stoning people to do death or they need to stop picking on gays, otherwise they are hypocrites.

    Christ brought a new code. "Let he who is without sin..." and all that.

    "which parts of leviticus should we follow"

    All of it. In the same note that is meant for each individual personally to follow, the Ten commandments still apply always and forever. Search out your own heart and kill those things within yourself that are an abomination to God. Pretty simple really.

    Generally most Believers do know and/or understand what that "Personal relationship" means personal/self examination.

    "But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any [man] pluck them out of my hand. My Father, which gave [them] me, is greater than all; and no [man] is able to pluck [them] out of my Father's hand. I and [my] Father are one."
