    It doesn't have to. There isn't a single scripture in the Bible that condones the behavior. In fact, every time homosexuality IS mentioned, it's in a negative light. There's only one acceptable configuration in the Bible, and that's marriage between a man and a woman. Everything else is contrary to God's will, hence, it's a sin.

    Uh-uh. You believe whatever the so-called scholars tell you to believe. The spiritual side utterly escapes you.

    I'm not ignoring God. I'm ignoring those men who presume to speak for God. I can hear God just fine and He isn't being overshadowed by the beliefs of others.

    Yes, it does. Homosexuality is mentioned only because of a very poor, lazy, and/or biased translation of a condemnation of an adult man having a sexual relationship with a boy or young teen, which is not actually homosexuality. It is like saying that God finds being a woman to be a sin because of how many times specifically it is mentioned that behaviors of women are sinful.

    What does God tell you about homosexuality?

    That He has no issue with it. It is just like being heterosexual. He put the processes in place to naturally lead to all sexualities and since same sex relationships do not cause harm to anyone, then there is no reason why He would consider such relations bad or sinful.

    That's your poor, lazy and/or biased analysis of the word of God. Yes, the Bible has been through many translations, but it's translated well enough to still convey God's will. The spiritual aspect of the Bible is what escapes you, and that's why it seems like scrambled eggs. Stop ignoring the Holy Spirit.

    Wrong. I am supported by actual research and scholarly writing that prove that the translations were bad.

    You cannot prove "divine inspiration" of any part of the Bible. All you have is your belief, nothing more.

    Through logic and reason that He gave me.
