You raised me to believe that God loves me.
Then, I realized that I am bisexual and now you tell me that I am going to Hell.
You based these assumptions on six scriptures that mention homosexuality in negative ways. Have you ever read those scriptures in their contexts? There's a whole list of prohibitions there, besides the one about gay sex. There is one that says it’s forbidden to wear an outfit made out of more than one kind of cloth. You say you read the Bible in the correct meaning. You also use the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. It could be that the cities were destroyed due to peoples' disregard for God and other human beings, for example, their constant intent to commit rape? You do know that Paul said, "Let your women keep silent in the churches." How come you don't follow that? Inhospitality is considered to be a worse sin. It’s possible that their terrible treatment of strangers, rather than gay sex, was what God found to be offensive. Lot offered to throw his virgin daughters to that mob to be raped, and is described as the righteous one in this story. I think after hearing that, it is important to read it with some consciousness of its content seen in a different time and place. In Ezekiel 16:49 the "sin of Sodom" was identified as "pride, laziness, and too much food, while the poor and needy suffered" It said nothing about homosexuality. Several scriptures refer to these sins, sins of failure to love and care for others, as being "worse than the sin of Sodom" Jesus constantly reached out to the most sinful people with whom he came in contact with. The tax collector. The prostitute. The woman at the well. All of them and more. All of the people I mentioned were viewed as you view lesbians and gays today -satanic, disgusting,dirty. Whenever Jesus was criticized for embracing these people in His love, he always rebuked those who criticized him as judgmental people. #lgbt #gaypride #stophomophobia #stopusingreligionasanexcuse
