  • he would tell the homosexuals to turn the other cheek. and i am sure that wouldnt be a problem. lets do that bible spank thing again..........
  • Depends, are they using the binding, or going for paper cuts? While there are passages in the Bible that seem to admonish against homosexuality, some say there are passages which, at the very least, would indicate tolerance. I don't know - I'm not a theologian, and it's not something I've studied. Jesus did seem to stir things up quite a bit, though. It seems to me, in my rather amateurish opinion, that Jesus would encourage a positive approach to homosexuality. Hate the sin and love the sinner, for example. I think he'd be a people-person.
  • I am agnostic so please dont downrate me for having different beliefs. However, I am open to all different religions and interperations. There is a higher power and if that power is "Jesus" then I would say that he would want us all to be a part of an "accepting" society. Accept & respect ALL religions and ALL walks of life. Accept all human beings as we are all created equal. Those are the beliefs and values that I deem to be important so in my opinion, I believe that higher power would not be happy to see how "unaccepting" people can be.
  • "Let them who is without sin, cast the first stone...." "I came to heal the sick, not the well" "Go and sin no more"
    • Linda Joy
      John 8:7 "7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her."
  • He'd bro rape the bastards.
  • 'Judge not lest ye be judged.'
  • Jesus was known for including and embracing those his society tended to cast out. Tax collectors, sinners, the ill and diseased, those from other tribes. His teachings indicated that God and the kingdom of Heaven belonged to everyone, not just those specially anointed. He taught love and acceptance. To that end, I can't imagine he'd care who a person loved.
  • He'd pull out the whip and drive them from the temple.
  • Jesus at Matt 19:4-6 talks about mariage as the union and male and female referring to the creation account in Genesis. Jesus often quoted from the Hebrew scriptures(Old Testament) thus he knew what the law stated at Lev 20:13 which says that "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman,both of them have done what is destestable" In the Christian Greek scriptures(New Testament) the same thought is repeted at Rom 1:24-27 which is what Christians need to follow.As mentioned in a previous answer Jeus would hate the sin(homosexuality) and love the sinner and help him to resist doing what is wrong.
  • Jesus would applaud those who use the Bible as a weapon against homosexuality as tne Bible is God's word and Jesus himself said at John 17:17 " Sanctify them by means of the truth; your word is truth." If we love God we obey his commands and we also know they are for our good and also a protection. 1John 5:3 makes this clear "For this is what the love of God means, that we observe his commandments; and yet his commandments are not burdensome"
  • I think that he would just quote what Paul said at 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10.
  • Let sleeping dogs lie
  • I guess throwing Bibles at gay people would hurt.
  • "Jesus Christ, what the f*** people?" =P
  • John 3:16 AND verse 17 "For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyonewho believes in him will not perish but have eternal life." Thats verse 16, now heres verse 17. Check it out "God did not send His Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it"
  • Although Jesus did teach against homosexuality, by stressing the doctrine that marriage was a lifelong commitment between a man and a woman, he NEVER treated people badly, as some who profess to be Christians do (I am one). We have several encounters between Jesus and sexual sinners in the NT, eg John 4, the Samaritan lady at the well, and John 8, the woman taken in adultery. In neither of these two passages is his anger directed at the sinner. Instead, he seeks to win them by love and just actions. His anger was generally reserved for those who should know better, but behave badly- the religious leaders. As he says twice in the parable of the lost son "There is more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than for a hundred righteous people".
  • First let's get one thing out of the way. The Gospels don't always portray Jesus as a soft-spoken person. He's quoted as saying "An evil and adulterous generation" Matthew 12:38 "in this adulterous and sinful generation" Mark 9:38 "O generation of vipers" Matthew 12:34 "Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers" Matthew 23:33 etc. Secondly Jesus warns in Mark 9:38 "Whosoever therefore shall be ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation; of him also shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he cometh in the glory of his Father with the holy angels" So, if Jesus supports the law in its stand against stealing, for example, you shouldn't shy away from saying to someone that stealing is wrong for fear of offending them. You should not find yourself saying to someone 'you're not stealing from family or friends you're just occasionally pocketing a few things from the local store without paying for them. I don't think that's called stealing it's actually called shoplifting' Having said that rules do have exceptions. For example, the HQ is clear that eating of the pig is forbidden, but it says if you are FORCED by circumstances to eat then you may do so BUT you must only eat the minimum necessary, you must strive to get out of that situation and must stop eating immediately the necessity disappears. Finally, if someone is caught up in a situation in which they can't help doing wrong, they need help to get out of it not public exposure or humiliation.
  • I think that depends on what you mean by weapon. If by weapon you mean they use the Bible as their moral grounds for disagreement then become physically or verbally abusive, I am sure Jesus would be quite upset. I am a Christian and I don't feel awkward or angry because a person is a homosexual. I have friends who are homosexual and believe that homosexuals are human beings that should be treated with respect, should not be bashed or called names, and should be given the same rights that any other citizen has (with exception to Christian marriage). I also believe that homosexuality is unnatural and immoral. This is a personal conviction not a personal preference. This is my moral conclusion about homosexuality based on what I believe the Bible teaches. This is always such a controversial topic and I am not interested in getting into a big debate on the topic. I just felt it was important to state that as Christians we are not commanded to hate, abuse, disrespect, or attack others who in accordance with what we are taught are living sinfully. We are commanded to be salt and light and to share Truth wherever possible. Jesus
  • I definitely understand how often the Bible is used inappropriately and as a sword against the LGBT community. However, I would think that Jesus would not condone their lifestyle, for while we are to love the sinner and hate the sin, we are ALSO to speak the truth IN LOVE. Speaking the truth in love does not mean shying away from the fact that sodomy/homosexuality is a sin, but that we shouldn't bash them, for while Jesus was known to be quite pacifistic, He was not an invertebrate, especially when it comes to doctrinal matters. Lastly, I would say that you shouldn't treat homosexuals exactly as your closest friends, for that would be being unequally yoked with unbelievers, which is a sin. Scripture says mentions that two people cannot be true friends/walk together unless they are in agreement, and homosexuality is "unnatural affection" as well as "unseemly". We should know EXACTLY what the Bible as a whole says of homosexuality and stand on what it says and be firm yet CERTAINLY not antagonsitic and irritable about them or such discussions.
  • I don't know if you're aware, but the Bible is a BOOK! It's a story of a peoples, and their journey throughout history. By and large, the Bible is about as real as Mother Goose, Santa, the Easter Bunny, and a slew of other fictional characters. To actually take a fictional book literally is a major mistake. Please, realize that what was writen was writen for a reason. For the most part, homosexuality was looked down upon because it didn't allow for further reproduction of peoples in order to advance the politic of the day. Had they had the technology that we now posses, homosexuality would not have even been mentioned. It's about time that we left the past in the past. LIVE FOR THE PRESENT!
  • He'd probably say "Oi! Stop throwing them books at the poofs!"... Well, if he was an Aussie anyway... It's hard to say, since anything written down about what jesus said and taught is third-hand - we have nothing written by the guy himself.
  • He'd probably agree with them. We're talking about a historical character from around 2000 years ago, it's likely that he'd be very homophobic.
  • he would say "listen you self-righteous dirt bag(modern translation) you might try reading that book before you use it as a weapon!"
  • like he responded to the Priests , Jewish Lawgivers, etc. "do not the scriptures say"...people are supposed to stay with the Bible and spread the word....a weapon? if that is how you choose to classify the WORD , oh well...it says what it says...... and it says IT IS AN ABOMINATION....period... a Christian cannot say IT IS OKAY...they do have to say that it is a homosexuals choice to live as he or she wants....
  • I now pronounce you all gay. :)
  • Jesus would hit them with the Bible, then his dad would send word that its wrong to be a homosexual...jesus would have to re read the passages he skipped out on, because it was a really long passage. ;) yea, I'm kidding The Bible says God created Adam and Eve, right? Enough said...I think he'd tell them to continue to go about life in their own way though. Maybe they can score points in other areas? Isn't there a middle section where redemption is a possiblity?
  • Let those without sin cast the first Bible!
  • Hello - not sure that your question is clear. How are folks using the Bible against homosexuals? The Word of G-d is clear. See I Corinthians 6:9-10, Leviticus 20:13 and several other passages. G-d's Word has a lot to say about other sexual sins as well, such as adultery, sex before marriage, sex with animals, sex with family members in addition to a whole host of other sins which humans are involved in. The issue is again how is the Bible being used as a weapon against homosexuality. Active sexual activity with a same sex partner is wrong. Period - that is what G-d said. However, there is forgiveness and deliverance in Yeshua if the person wants that. G-d loves the persons, but he HATES the sin; and that goes for all sins. This is way we need a Savior. Therefore, proper use of the Bible should loving show what His word says and allow His Spirit to convict the person. We must remember that G-d created the universe, therefore He gets to make the rules, whether we like it or not. We serve a loving and just G-d and our best hope for this life and the life to come is in serving, loving and obeying Him with all of our strength. Blessings! Dee
  • i think jesus would laugh at the ppl who use it as a weapon and tell them that is not what it is there for.
  • As you believe, so is it unto you.
  • He would probably tell them not to hit people with the good book.
  • let those without sin cast the first stone.
  • as a Believer and the last reponse I will give on this subject and I will "shake the dust off", I am not passing judgement on anyone , just telling the TRUTH: Fact 1....there is not 1, "Truly God Fearing Person", on this earth, when asked about HOMOSEXUALITY can condone it...anymore than they could condone lying, adultery, murder, fornicating, hate, stealing, etc...can't say he is sinning cause he is obese and you smoke or may be prejudice, etc..... Fact 2.....we ALL are SINNERS...we ALL are responsible to God for our sins and No One Else...None can point fingers at any..NONE Fact 3....every single person will ANSWER for their own individual sins .... Fact 4....ONLY the Lord can forgive and know when our HEART is right....BUT we have to ASK.... OUR OWN HEART CONDITION is the only JUDGEMENT we can have.... I wish you all PEACE....
  • That if you read the bible, it is wrong in the eyes of God.
  • I think He'd start with, "Cannot you read?" followed by, "Love thy neighbor as thyself. Judge not lest ye be judged. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone..." and finish by quoting the FSM, "...Besides, this isn’t about them so don’t change the subject."
  • Jesus wants us to love them. What gets misunderstood is that Jesus/God don't hate homosexuals. He hates the act. It is a sin, or an abomination to Him. It is SIN that is to be put to the Sword of the Spirit. The weapon of God and his followers is The Word. He wants us to fight against Sin, not homosexuals.
  • JESUS would ask, "Why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not perceive the plank in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother,"Brother let me remove the speck that is in your eye, when you yourself do not see the plank that is in your own eye?Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye and then you will see clearly to remove the speck that is in your brother's eye...... Anyone who know the LORD'S words will know that this means you have sin and yet you are pointing your finger at your brother's sin?..First clean up your act and then you will be knowledgeable enough to know how to help your brother.
  • Jesus would tell them and the homosexuals what the Bible says about homosexuality. This question I consider to be basic because, if we accept God's Word on the subject of homosexuality, we benefit from His adequate answer to this problem. I am concerned only with the Christian or biblical view of homosexuality. The Bible has much to say about sex sins in general. First, there is adultery. Adultery in the natural sense is sexual intercourse of a married person with someone other than his or her own spouse. It is condemned in both the Old and New Testaments (Exodus 20:14; I Cor. 6:9, 10). Christ forbids dwelling upon the thoughts, the free play of one's imagination that leads to adultery (Matthew 5:28). Second, there is fornication, the illicit sex acts of unmarried persons which is likewise forbidden (I Corinthians 5:1; 6:13, 18; Ephesians 5:3). Then there is homosexuality which likewise is condemned in Scripture. The Apostle Paul, writing by inspiration of the Holy Spirit, declares that homosexuality "shall not inherit the kingdom of God" (I Corinthians 6:9; 10). Now Paul does not single out the homosexual as a special offender. He includes fornicators, idolators, adulterers, thieves, covetous persons, drunkards, revilers and extortioners. And then he adds the comment that some of the Christians at Corinth had been delivered from these very practices: "And such were some of you: But ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the spirit of our God" (I Corinthians 6:11). All of the sins mentioned in this passage are condemned by God, but just as there was hope in Christ for the Corinthians, so is there hope for all of us. Homosexuality is an illicit lust forbidden by God. He said to His people Israel, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination" (Leviticus 18:22). "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them" (Leviticus 20:13). In these passages homosexuality is condemned as a prime example of sin, a sexual perversion. The Christian can neither alter God's viewpoint nor depart from it.
  • The "error" many people make is interpreting the bible their own way. In fact they make at least a double interpretation. First they rely on the translation from Hebrew or Greek to their own language (some even have yet more than one) followed by their own idea of their own language. Besides the laws are changeling every day in every country/state. Gay marriage [to return on topic ;-)] for example is accepted in more of them.
  • That they need to read it. It does say that he doesn't like it, but it also says that we are not to judge. It also talks of how he dislikes people who judge people and condemn their behaviors, without first looking at themselves.
  • "When you yourself are perfect, then you can seek perfection in others. Nothing my father has created is unlovely. Do not destroy by word or deed without good cause."
  • "If Christ were here now there is one thing he would not be -- a Christian."
  • hyperthetically: as HE said to all 7 congregations in Revelations, "Let all those who can hear, HEAR." HIS most important for ALL, who think they have it ALL and know it ALL, I think , was the letter(warning) to Laodicea: Revelation 3:15,16,17 15)"I know you well-you are neither hot nor cold; I wish you were one or the other! 16) but since you are merely lukewarm, I will spit you out of my mouth! 17)"You say,'I am rich, with everything I want; I don't need a thing!' And you don't realize that SPIRITUALLY you are WRETCHED and MISERABLE and POOR and BLIND and NAKED." I know this warning was to an entire assembly but I try to use as a self evaluator... Christ's
  • I think Jesus would admonish people to use the Bible as he himself did. When Jesus was being tempted by the devil Jesus responded by saying "It is written" and then he would quote scripture to show why he would not do certain things(read Matt 4:1-11) Jesus mild manner when speaking with people is the way we should speak to others. Reasoning on the scriptures in this way helps people see what the Bible is teaching. At Matt 7:12 we see that Jesus taught us the golden rule "therefore, whatever you want men to do to you,do also to them" We should always keep this mind.
  • This question was asked incorrectly. It should read homosexuality, not homosexuals. A true belief in Jesus requires obedience to what he said. In this tricky question the ones who need to use obedience are the weapon holders. They have the Word, which is sharper than any 2 edged sword. IF the swordbearer is using his weapon as a tool in SPIRITUAL warfare, he would be wielding it against the sin, not the sinner. In that case, Jesus would say to the warrior, "Well done thou good and faithful servant. Enter into my rest."
  • People who use the Bible as a reason to justify ANY kind of bigotry are hypocrites! Nothing "Christian" about them. Christianity is about love and acceptance, not hatred and intolerance!
  • words are very powerful... be careful how you use them
  • Thank you for rightly dividing the Word of Truth.
  • 1) "I don't remember Jesus saying anything about gays. Pretty big omission, if you believe that the New Testament contains every important thing Jesus ever said. One can only conclude that Jesus wasn't really concerned about that." Source and further information: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/6/25/135047/793 2) "The Christian critics of homosexuality rarely mention Jonathan's homosexual love affair with David (I Samuel 18:20, II Samuel 1), the omission of homosexuality from the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20) or Jesus' omission of any criticism of homosexuality. They see the Bible as a weapon of hate instead of a tool for love. But if homosexuality were such a big concern to Christ, then surely Jesus would have mentioned it and someone would have recorded it. Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus take up the issue. Instead, when asked to choose the greatest of the commandments (Matthew 22:36), he explains the greatest commandment is to love.

  • "my Dad didn't like them either,he destroyed sodom and gommora for man on man sex"
  • Silence of Scripture on any given subject must be honored or we would be guilty of the Great Transgression, called "Presumptuos Sin".... HE did not have to say anything about Sodomy....it was APPARENT since Sodom and Gomorrah.... He defined "divorce" for the people because Moses MADE the divorce Laws, not God....God hates divorce....
  • Many are the sins mentioned in the Bible that would cause us to lose God's favor 1Cor 6:9,10 mentions these. "What! Do YOU not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men, nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit God’s kingdom." Jesus would use perhaps these verses as well as many others to show sincere ones what God requires of us to please Him. They would not be used as a weapon unless someone was trying to say that homosexuality or ant other of the sins just mentioned are OK with God. We have God's word the Bible as a guide and we also can depend on God's holy spirit to help us to fight against any sin or temptation that is in conflict with God's righteous standards. It is always beneficial to follow these standards in our life. 1Tim 4:8 says it well "For bodily training is beneficial for a little; but godly devotion is beneficial for all things, as it holds promise of the life now and that which is to come.
  • Jesus did not accept sin as an option... what he accepted was sinners not sinning. He would not accept homosexual lifestyle as righteous living and He will undoubtly say what he told the woman caught in adultery "Go and sin no more". When Jesus walked this earth he came not to judge but to teach us how to live according to the will of God. Judgement is reserved for J-Day. So though we cant judge each others sins as we too are sinners we can judge what actions are immoral using the Bible as a guideline. Homosexual acts is clearly defined as immoral in the Bible. Jesus would probably reprimand anyone who used the Bible to spread hatred. "I want mercy not sacrafice" Cheers
  • sin is sin... we should love the sinner but not the sin. the bible is the sword of life. use it wisely
  • Well according to the super-christians he would praise them for their hateful words towards his children.
  • "Depart from me, you workers of iniquity. I never knew you." - Jesus
  • it's a very old book, for very old views. If someone wanted to place his willy there, let him. It's in our genes to be sexually orientated, you don't choose to be gay. A concept that Jesus may not have known about - his views were not passed down from the golden bible- he probably just saw it as a bit weird and perverted, as any normal straight man would. He'd probably go " dudes - it's the something st century, what are you doing? I was young! I've tried it myself - very good!"
  • Perhaps He would suggest that the person without sin should cast the first stone. Jesus was not really very tolerant of people who spent their lives condemning others. Nor did he say very much about sex, which seems to be of huge concern to the Christian far right. He might remind us that the Christian right is neither. Neither right nor Christian!
  • Hit them with it harder.
  • 1st of all I personally don't think that the Bible is just an ordinary Weapon. It is mentioned the Word of God is like a sword.. two edged sword. It cuts both ways..anything false (thnking of men) will not withstand it. Whatever that is true will endure..it will not suffer any ill effects or destruction.
  • do on to others as you would want done unto you.
  • "My message is not that of hate, but of love. My desire is for my beloved children to have an abundant and fulfilled life, in the intimate relationship with me that they were made for, and eternal life in my heavenly kingdom. You have to have rules to live by. You can't say "we're going to play a baseball game without any rules", "we're going to play a football game without any rules", "we're going to live a life without any moral rules". Well I have laid down certain rules and said "If you want the best of life, if you want complete happiness and fulfillment, live by these rules.""** " One of these rules is that marriage--and sex--is designed to be between a man and a woman. I provided a blueprint, a plan for marriage and for my good gift of sex** in Genesis 2:24, a gift that is only to be enjoyed within a marriage between a man and a woman. I only bless sex within the committed marriage relationship of a man and a woman and make no exceptions, such as homosexual partnerships**. From Genesis on, I have praised the marriage of a man and a woman, but have spoken negatively of homosexual behavior. Remember, I love you deeply and intensely and eternally and I know what's best for you. The rules that I have laid down to live by were so that you can have the best of life and complete happiness and fulfillment. Do you want to know my heart on the matter and what I desire to do? Here are hundreds of stories from real-life people who have struggled with homosexuality and have been delivered by me to live (as some of them have described) transformed, healed, overwhelmingly joyful, fullfilled, purpose driven, peace filled, satisfied, free lives in the intimate relationship with me they were designed for, as the men and women they were created to be! : Exodus International ("freedom from homosexuality through the power of Jesus Christ")http://exodus.to/content/view/417/180/. http://www.exodus-international.org/. This is what one of my beloved children, Linda D. Carter, from Exodus International, has said in her story^: "I now have such peace and joy in my heart. God is working in my life with all His power. God created me to be a woman, and deep inside of me, He has assured me that this is what I am. Perhaps God has allowed me to go through all the things I did so that I could help others who struggle with homosexual temptations -- to let them know that he loves every one of them, but that He hates all sin. People need to know and to see and hear how God can save and deliver. What He has done in my life, I believe He can do in your life, no matter what problems you have. The Enemy, Satan, is a liar. He comes 'to steal, kill and destroy.' God comes to give us life, joy and peace. He wants us to experience freedom. Jesus is the way out of all our struggles with sin. Satan is already defeated. I encourage you to read Leviticus 20:13, and Romans 1:24-28. These scriptures give insight as to what God has to say about homosexuals. Homosexuality does not come from God. Remember also Philippians 4:13, 'I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.' Friends, be encouraged! You can make it. To God be the glory for redeeming my life from destruction!" Now do you see my love? My love is real and if people open their heart to it, I will fill that emptiness inside. I love homosexuals and I want them to be with me. It doesn't matter what they think they have done, my love is bigger. I love them more than anyone could ever understand, and I have already given the ultimate sacrifice for them (and you) to prove it, I sent my only son, Jesus, to die on the cross for their sins. All that I am waiting for is for them to reach out their hand and call out to me***." Jesus -------- *Billy Graham **Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Christian Guidance department ***Amy Schultz's testimony http://exodus.to/content/view/259/148/
  • I think He would say. "Hey you, stop hitting that homosexual over the head with the bible... that's not a weapon you know!" I rebuke you you Bible thumper!
  • Christians are to use Scripture to judge a person's fruit and it is through Scripture that we know homosexuality to be a sin. Obviously many people disagree with that. The Word of God is likened unto a Sword that cuts deeper than anything when used to expose sin. In that sense it is a weapon against sin. But this Sword is to be yielded in love not hatred. With that being said, there are many people who use Scripture (Sword) out of hatred towards a certain group of people, in this case homosexuals, and that, Jesus would never condone. Christians are to approach everyone in love, not hatred.
  • Let he who is without sin cast the first... bible...
  • ...who art thou that judgest another?
  • Anyone using religious doctrine of a loving god to persecute anyone else is a hypocrite and should be paid no attention.
  • Jesus would calmly explain to them that it is for god to judge, for what man is without sin. Then the Christians would stone him to death for being a false prophet.
  • he would probably use the bible as a weapon against those who use the bible as a weapon against homosexuals.
  • I think he'd be disgusted.
  • They could use the Bible against most practices in modern society which we consider to be morally acceptable. The Bible is also sexist. Those sorts of people do not live by the Bible themselves anyway. They are just homophobic people looking for an outlet to vent their case.
  • Either the Bible is the Word of God or it's not.It is either all wrong or all right. I would rather be putting my trust in the Bible(believing it to be all right) than to put my trust in putting my tube in another man's pipe.That's just me. We all make our own choices.
  • let hu is with out sin cast the first stone
  • I think he'd probably be very sad to hear that his word is being used in that way. All kinds of ridiculous horrible stuff gets carried out in his name. The bible does say it's wrong, but it's nobody's job to judge or punnish.
  • Let he who is without sin cast the first stone. He'd reference his previous statement two thousand years ago and be like "omg, wtf, are you not listening to me or something?" Jesus would be awesome.
  • "They will know you are my followers if you LOVE one another." (John 13:35) "This is my commandment, that you love one another, as I have loved you." (John 15:12)
  • Love thy neighbor as thyself.
  • I think that Jesus (if he's only half of what his fan club makes him out to be) would actually whack some sense into their empty heads with the Bible
  • "I forgive you your trespasses, but please try to love your neighbor."
  • I think that ANYONE who spends their time trying to worry about the souls of other groups of people, for whatever reason, is probably hypocritical. I live a pretty clean life and do my best to be the best person I can and I have a full time job worrying about my own soul. It's hypocritical to single out homosexuality when a person is perfectly willing to ignore a whole slew of sins committed by heterosexual people. I see promiscuity as a sin -- and it's equally sinful for heterosexuals as homosexuals. As to homosexuality in general -- I don't think God, in any form, could condemn love. Love is a beautiful thing -- whether it's found between a man and woman or between 2 men or between 2 women. I don't see how my God would condemn a true and committed love. But that's just this southern baptist's opinion.
  • He wont say anything, just a divine karate chop to the forehead should do it. Kapow!!
  • If they (people) use the bible as a weapon against the act of homosexuality, I believe they would be inlign with Christian teaching and Gods word. It is the act of homosexuality that God hates, not the person. God loves all men and woman and wants them all to be with him in paradise.
  • Jethuth would thlap them thilly! :)
  • I think He would probably remind them that God says in the very Bible they are "using" that it's not for us to judge others. Maybe they should stop wielding it and start reading it. Whether the Bible is against homosexuality or not, it is between God and the individual...everyone else needs to stay out of it.
  • as HE said to the priests,"have u not read the Scriptures"....
  • We are to hate the sin and love the sinner. If that person is using the Bible against the sin, I'd say He'd tell them "Well done." If they are using the Bible to hate the sinner, He'd take them to task. He would tell them to guard against the yeast of the Pharisee's and Saducee's. The Bible does actually contain a couple of short mentions of homosexuality. Of course, that word wasn't coined yet then, it is mentioned as a man lying with another man as with a woman. It says we are not to do it. It also has a fair bit to say about heterosexual sex outside of marriage. We are not to be a set of genetalia on legs, looking for stimulation. That is not to be the prime focus of our lives. If you look around at those who make it their prime focus, you'll see some pretty sad people. They seem to have it all, but they don't have love. They have a sore crotch and a fake smile if they are lucky. If they are unlucky, they have an STD and/or AIDS. Jesus wants them to have so much more. I imagine He'd have quite a bit to say to Larry Flynt or Hugh Hefner. What did He say to the woman at the well who had five husbands and was only actually living with the most recent one? He forgave her and told her to go and sin no more. He loves sinners, but He expects them to stop sinning.
  • when reading what other people have said for some reason the story of mary and martha came to me. to all of us, what martha seemed to be doing was the right thing, preparing for the supper, and that mary should have been helping. but jesus did not agree, he said that mary was in the right. we dont always agree with God but he knows what he is doing. just because some may think they dont murder or rape that they are better those that do. let me rephrase, they might say something like, well they might say, so what i hit my wife once, at least im not a murder. some reason people see sin as having levels of better to worse and in turn compromising. making excuses for what they do by compared to what others do to make themselves feel better. but in God's eyes, all sin is equal and just as bad no matter what it is. because all sin puts us farther and farther way from his reach. and on the part of the bible as a weapon. i think it is a weapon to defend. that we are defense and God is offense. personal opinion. i do believe there are MOMENTS for us to be the offense, but not all the time. people shouldnt have to walk on eggshells around you. there is a time to speak up, and a time to be quiet. no matter how much someone judges, you cant change someones mind, it must be decided by them.
  • "Just a doggone minute here. What did I tell you guys about casting the first stone?"
  • Show them that they are no worse than homosexuals.
  • that's good.
  • He would say " hello people who use the bible against homosexuals"
  • Jesus would say that the practice is hated by his Father in heaven and that IF those people ceased what they are doing...for good...they would once more be acceptable to him. (1 Timothy 1:10) fornicators, men who lie with males, kidnappers, liars, false swearers, and whatever other thing is in opposition to the healthful teaching (1 Corinthians 6:9) What! Do YOU not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men,
  • Nothing, he never existed.
  • He probably wonder if they used the hard cover version, cause those hurt more
  • I don't theink he would say anything... he'd probably just bend them over and give one of his famous demonstartions.
  • Weapon? Guns and knives are weapons; let's tone down the rhetoric. Matthew 5:18 "For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled." Are people really using the Bible as a "weapon against homosexuals" or do homosexuals accuse others of "using the Bible as a weapon" against them? Just bear in mind the old saying about "sticks and stones...". It says what it says. You don't have to like it (indeed! some things are harsh!), but that doesn't change what is written.
  • He would say "heeeeeey baby"
  • He would love the person but hate his ways, and would probably mention 1 Cor.6:9-11 were it says, "9 What! Do YOU not know that unrighteous persons will not inherit God’s kingdom? Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men, 10 nor thieves, nor greedy persons, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit God’s kingdom. 11 And yet that is what some of YOU were. But YOU have been washed clean, but YOU have been sanctified, but YOU have been declared righteous in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God."
