Why did God make homosexuals?
Religious Explanations for Homosexuality Please note that this question asks about why God made homosexuals, so it assumes that the person asking and answering the question share a common faith in God. See the related question for scientific explanations of homosexuality. Even though this question assumes a common faith in God, not everyone who believes in God shares the same beliefs about homosexuality. Here are some different viewpoints.
- It isn't possible for us to identify all possible situations where all possible behaviors can be significant, but if you believe in a Creator, it's quite easy to imagine He/She would be able to identify the need for this kind of diversity, without putting judgment on the need to have the behavior included in the repertoire of human behaviors. Our problem is, some people become judgmental when facing what they do not understand.
- This is a question that never can be truly answered and opinions can only be given. It's like saying "why does God allow babies to die at birth" or "why does God let good and honest people die by the hands of a murderer." I know I'm going to get my backside kicked on this one, but so be it. I am a Christian. This is strictly MY opinion on the matter. I do believe that most gays (some choose to be gay at a later date) are truly born this way. After all, we are created from the same substance as stars and our bodies are full of hormones. My theory is that some people have more of one hormone than another. No one has the right to chastise or cause pain towards ANYONE that is different be it sexually or racially. I was brought up that we are ALL God's children. To pick on or condemn a gay person or a person of a different color is a slap in God's face. HE is the only one that has the right to decide whether it's right or wrong. If one is a Christian then they must believe that no matter if they feel it's right or wrong regarding gays they do not have the right to harm or belittle anyone that is gay. I also find that people that protest the loudest against gays are simply afraid of the unknown. There is nowhere in the Bible that mentions gays are not acceptable. It does say "and man shall be with woman" but, also in the Bible it does mention gay activity (as we understand it today.)
- God "made" homosexuals for the same reason He made other sinners. From Adam and Eve we have been given the right '''and''' responsibility to choose for ourselves whom we would follow: God, or our own wisdom. Adam chose poorly, and this world has suffered for it ever since. The side question to all this is whether homosexuality is something one is born with, or if it is the result of decisions made afterward. Given the number of people I know personally who have '''chosen''' to leave the homosexual lifestyle for a heterosexual one, I have to say that not all homosexuals are "born that way," and therefore have zero responsibility in their choices. By the same token, heterosexuals are just as "born that way" towards desiring the opposite gender, but the responsibility of choice on what to do with that desire is there as well. Matthew 13:24-30 provides a parable that may help explain why God allows certain things to happen; Jesus explains the parable in verses 36-42. See the Related Links for links to these verses.
- God created homosexuals so they would provide valuable services, such as , food gathering, protection from attack/predators, production of goods/services for their society, while at the same time not increase the burden on that society by bringing into it more children in need of care, food and protection from attack.
- God does not make sinners - He makes people, and people choose to sin. God created man in his own image , but that has nothing to do with God creating homosexuals, because God is not a homosexual. God is in fact heterosexual, and therefore anything created in his image would also be heterosexual, not homosexual.)) We are placed on the earth with agency, or the ability to act for ourselves. God does not force anyone to do anything. The way you are is the way you have decided to be. Does God make people sin? No. He teaches us why we should not sin. So why would God make someone be homosexual? In the Bible we read the account of when He destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Why? Because they were all sinners and it was better for them to die then to continue sinning and making themselves worse. So what was their sin? The Bible says that it was two main things: Homosexuality and Bestiality (also called Sodomy, receiving its name from this biblical city). So if God destroyed those cities for being homosexuals, why would He make people homosexuals? He doesn't. It's your choice, and he wants everyone, including homosexuals to repent and return to Him.
- This assumes belief that a deity exists. Without belief in a deity the answer is rather simple. The cause of homosexuality is identical to the cause of heterosexuality.
- The Bible is God's word, the truth, and a guide as to living in this material world, and nowhere in the bible does it agree with homosexuality. We cannot bend the teaching of the bible to accommodate our likes and dislikes, but in fact that is what people do. You should read what the Bible says about homosexuality and then repent of your sins and be forgiven.
- Readers should be aware that the foregoing opinions on homosexuality represent just a few of the many viewpoints embraced by the various organized religions. Indeed, some religions openly accept homosexuality while many others tacitly condone it. Most stop well short of equating homosexuals with "perverts, child molesters and murderers."
- God created homosexuals, or gay people as some say, as a means of population control.
- When God created us, He created us to have free will and choices. and to make our own decisions. That's why when you sin or make a wrong decision, he doesn't strike lightning down on you. He simply lets you pay for what you did with natural consequences.
- God didn't create homosexuals, but created humans with free will and choice. Those people just made the decision to like the same sex. There's nothing wrong with it.

Answer . Thus God did not and would not create something to which He wasopposed. It occurred after the fall, as an extension of man'srebellion against God's order, as allowed by the fact that man hasa free-will. . Here is another answer to this question: . If we are god's creatures and he estab…lished the parameters inwhich we pursue relationships with each other, biologically andpsychologically, then his design also included homosexuality.Otherwise, he should not have wired our brains to find pleasurewith either sex. . Homosexuality occurs everywhere in the animal kingdom and amongall species of animals, including humans. This is one more proofthat the writings and teachings of Christianity, based on theirBible, are false as they assume God was taken by surprise by theactions of humans as homosexuals--he did not know humans would findthe same sex appealing. The writings call homosexuality anabomination but that would not be the case if God had been aware ofthe problem from the beginning. An abomination could only exist ifGod were taken by surprise by a person's sexual preference towardsanother of the same sex. But, Christianity claims God has seen thefuture and knows every detail. If God knows everything, then hecould not have been surprised by anything and he would not havedeclared homosexuality a sin or an abomination! . (MORE)
There are those that believe that gods were made by man. For others it is a fundamental part of their belief that god is infinite and created the universe. It depends on what you believe.
god isnt real so he couldnt make human life, this is proven by scientists and its just a myth like the easter bunny or the tooth fairy.
Since God made 'heaven and earth and all that in them is,' then it would certainly include the dinosaurs. According to a straightforward reading of Genesis 1, most of these would have been created on day 6, although it would appear that the flying reptiles may have been created on day 5. also Ge…nesis 1 : . 24 And God said, "Let the land produce living creatures according to their kinds: livestock, creatures that move along the ground, and wild animals, each according to its kind." And it was so. 25 God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.. 26 Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, [b] and over all the creatures that move along the ground." Answer . As has already been explained in the previous answers, we still have no knowledge why he created them. The fact that they did exist has been proved. How long the earth has been in existence we do not know, six days, six thousand years or millions of years. That they existed before Adam can be excepted as a fact. The fact that we must also excepted is that God was the organisor of all things. (MORE)
No they do not. Tight pants are becoming more and more common in today's society. Answer . It is a shame that brief shorts for boys & youths have gotten the stigma of being somehow "queer," "sissy," "outre."

If you believe in God, then God would have made everything by definition of being omnipotent.
YES!. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 says, "Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality , or are thieves, or greedy people, …or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people-none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed ; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God ." . God can, will, and does forgive the sin of homosexuality. All you have to do is call on His name and ask for forgiveness. . A comment: the word "homosexual" was created in the 19th century. It does not occur in the Bible. Any translation of the text that uses the word is therefore distorting the original. A number of religions do not consider homosexuality a sin. . A: . Homosexual acts should not be considered a sin. Accepting that people can be attracted to the same sex but not allowing them to commit the physical act of love is basically saying "it's O.K. to be gay, you just can't be gay." If the physical act of love defines our sexuality then saying it is wrong for homosexuals to have sex is basically saying "suppress your sexuality." You can be attracted to the same sex but you must NEVER act on that attraction. Basically you have to pretend those attractions don't exist. It's denying them a sexuality. . Answer: . God will forgive any sin repented of. . Paul wrote: "Let him that stole steal no more..." (Eph.4:28). It's true of the other nine sins of breaking God's Ten Commandments also. . Homosexuality is perverse adultery... and is forgivable if repented of, departed from, and mercy and forgiveness sought of the Lord. (MORE)
That is a very debatable question.. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of the great amount of sin found in those cities. "But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the LORD." Genesis 13:13 (NKJV) "For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown …great before the face of the LORD and the LORD has sent us to destroy it." Genesis 19:13 (NKJV). And amongst all those sins we find that homosexuality was very popular in these cities. Genesis 19:5 " And they called to Lot and said to him, "Where are the men who came with you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally." (NKJV) (MORE)
Yes, God will forgive all sins if we repent and turn from our sins,come to Him and are saved. God hates all sin, regardless of thesin. Sin is sin in Gods eyes; he sees a lie the same as a murder.The only difference is that some sins come with greaterconsequences. We are all sinful and fall short of …the glory of God.No one sin is greater than the other. But we need to confess oursins and invite Jesus to be the Lord of our lives, BEFORE theJudgement Day, or it will be too late. What we do now, determineshow we will spend eternity. Answer2: Almighty God Jehovah is a God of love. 1 John 4:8 "Whoever does not love has not come to know God, because God islove." He does not hate people, but he hates actions he does notapprove of. 2 Peter 3:9 " Jehovah is not slow concerning hispromise, but he is patient with you because he does not desireanyone to be destroyed but desires all to attain to repentance."

"In the same way the man also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion." Romans 1:27
It is clearly written in the book of Romans chapter1 verse 27. please, don't think that if you commit homosexual acts that you are an abomination. God see's the ACT of homosexuality as detestable and an abomination. god loves the person but hates the sin.
You will get a variety of answers, depending on which religious person you ask, which sort of proves that if God said anything, he/she/it wasn't very clear. . There is lots of evidence that homosexuality is at least partly genetic, which - if you're a believer - means that God created us. "And God …saw that it was good." Actually, since I've had to debate this my entire life with heterosexual, fundamentalists....They are only a few [passages in the Bible that can even remotely be construed as anti-homosexual. Many scholars say these passages are being misinterpreted, or, were put into the Bible during the Dark Ages. War & disease was responsible for so many deaths in the Dark Ages, that it wasn't logical for the clergy to celebrate homosexuality. Many believe this is when homophobia really started. However, Jesus never talked about homosexuality in any of His sermons. This is of particular interest, because He talks about everything else, i.e., thievery, murder, adultery, gambling, prostitution etc. That should be evidence enough to persuade Christians from currently persecuting gays. Also, in the ancient Hebrew language, there were only 15,000 words. None of those words spoke of homosexuality, hence it was not in the original Bible. (MORE)
Jewish Answer It does not say anywhere in the Bible that God hates homsexuals,and in fact, homosexuality as a nature wasn't even mentioned.Christians love to use certain verses to justify their need to denypeople rights or persecute them, particularly Leviticus 18:22, butthese verses have multiple… interpretations. Christian Answer God DOES NOT hate homosexuals and any other person. That is againstHis nature because God is Love. God does call homosexuality an abomination and a sin. God willalways hate sin and fight against sinful desires because He lovesyou like a good father loves his children and won't let them dothings like play in the middle of the road or with guns or fire,ect. A scriptural viewpoint: The Bible never says "God hates homosexuals." What does it say? Leviticus 18:22 - You shall not lie with amale as with a woman. It is an abomination. Leviticus 20:13 - If a man lies witha male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed anabomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shallbe upon them. So God sees homosexuality as "an abomination;" a sin punishable bydeath under Mosaic Law. Yet the Bible hardly singles out homosexuality, as all ofthe following are also "abominations" that God hates :Incest and bestiality (Leviticus 18), unfit sacrifices (Lev. 7:18;Deuteronomy 17:1), idolatry (De. 17), the worship of false gods(also punishable by death - De. 17:2-5), cross-dressing (De. 22:5),cheating others in matters of commerce (De. 25:14-16), "theperverse person" (Proverbs 3:32; which in context has nothing to dowith sexual activity, but refers to dealing falsely with others),"dishonest scales" (Pr. 11:1), those of a "perverse heart" (Pr.11:20, regarding all who "pursue evil"), "lying lips" (Pr. 12:22),the "sacrifice of the wicked" (Pr. 15:8), the "way of the wicked"(Pr. 15:9), the "thoughts of the wicked" (Pr. 15:26), "everyoneproud in heart" (Pr. 16:5), wicked rulers (Pr. 16:12), perversionof justice (Pr. 17:5), the prayers of the haughty (Pr. 28:9),disobedience (Jeremiah 2:7). Proverbs 6:16-19 - These six things the Lordhates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lyingtongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wickedplans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness whospeaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren. The point is clear: GOD HATES SIN. He hates it somuch because it cuts us off from Him. Isaiah 59:2 says, " But your iniquities have separated you from yourGod ; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So thatHe will not hear ." Fortunately, unlike man, He has no difficulty distinguishing the"deed" from the "doer." God hates the sin, but HE STILLLOVES THE SINNER . Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates His own love towardus, in that while we were still sinners,Christ died for us . That being the case, the REAL question then becomes, "Why ishomosexuality a sin?" The answer to that is simple: it is justanother facet in the corrupt gem of lustfulness . Romans 1:24-27 - Therefore God also gave themup to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts,to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truthof God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature ratherthan the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason Godgave them up to vile passions . For even theirwomen exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burnedin their lust for one another , men with mencommitting what is shameful, and receiving in themselves thepenalty of their error which was due. The attribute of homosexuality that sets it apart from other formsof sinfulness and causes it to be seen as particularly atrocious(by men: to God ALL sin is an atrocity) is the way it "dishonorsthe body" and goes "against nature" in that it defies the naturalintent and form of something that God created to be good: therelationship between a man and a woman. Male and female bodies werecreated to perfectly complement each other (Genesis 1:27, 28), andour physical nature alone should be sufficient to prompt anyone torecognize what He created to be "fitting," as it were. It's also fair to note that homosexuality is hardly the only sin tobe associated with uncleanness, lust, dishonor, worshipping the"creature" [ourselves] rather than the Creator, vile passions andshamefulness. These characteristics all apply to heterosexualsinfulness as well. As to Sodom and Gomorrah being held up as examples to demonstratethat "God hates homosexuals:" they are hardly the only biblicalexamples of God's displeasure resulting in punishment forsinfulness. There are many others which have nothing at all to dowith homosexual acts. To reiterate in short: God hates the sinful acts ofmankind; not the sinful man himself . If God "hatedhomosexuals" as sinners, He would have to hate us ALL( Romans 3:23 - for all havesinned and fall short of the glory of God ). One thing all sinhas in common, whatever it may be...it can be repented of andforgiven. Acts 3:19 - Repent therefore and be converted,that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing maycome from the presence of the Lord (MORE)
All religions function by creating an 'in-group' and an 'out-group'. The believers gain in their sense of personal identity by distinguishing themselves from the non-elect. Most religions are wise enough to realise that by identifying unpopular minorities with the 'out-group' they will make the ex…clusivity of the in-group more attractive (especially to bigots). For many years southern Baptists successfully out-grouped negroes, Jews and Roman Catholics. The Mormons also successfully assigned negroes an inferior status until relatively recently: Brigham Young preached: No person having the least particle of Negro blood can hold the Priesthood a principle adhered to until the time of Lyndon Baines Johnson. Outgrouping negroes and women has become less attractive, as both groups have become better organised, more vociferous, and waged. But gays are still seen as a soft target. (MORE)
In the New Testament, Paul writes that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of heaven.

How do you make someone stop being straight? You don't in either case. You accept people for who they are and get on with your life.
First, you go to the island with the Dino, and make a fire. Then you burn a pygmy until it turns black. Go to the ice island, and make an ice hole(By making the sun bigger and letting pygmies burn through the ice). Then you drop in the burned pygmy, and there you have it. The geyser.
it is easier to say they are no god and be done with it than to look for their self. when looking for a answer too many people tells different things and some don't know their self and they pick a answer and stop looking for it there self but you got to look deep and long pray hard you will see ther…e is a god this is isa lol... sometimes its easier to jus be or pretend to be satisfied with the physical world.. someone like me is not satisfied with that tho! i also used to be athiest, but i wanted to kno what made the physical world, because humans didnt do it.. so i did my own bit of studying,.. some Aristotle and some basic physics ex: antimatter and matter (Google it its great if your smart enough to understand it lol) that's howi came to find proof (for me personaly) that ther is something that we don't kno about that created this world and the unbreakable law of common sense, gravity, etc (MORE)
A: Nope, people are Born gay and can not be changed to being straight, God had them be born gay for a reason so don't try to over ride His will. A: Homosexuality is a curse from God, put onto those that were evil and has probably carried down to their decedents or been put onto those that are… evil. . Romans 1:24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. . Romans 1:25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator -- who is forever praised. Amen. . Romans 1:26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts.Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. Romans 1:27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the DUE PENALTY for their perversion. Answer: Of course, God can deliver people from it. Homosexuality is not the so-called "unpardonable sin." Homosexuality is lustful, perverse adultery... which is a sin... but a transgression against God's law from which one can repent and turn away... and for which one can be forgiven. The natural carnal mind of man is naturally subject to the lusts of the flesh, but a human spirit awakened by God... and with His knowledge and understanding... can, by His Power, learn to struggle against and overcome the pulls of the flesh and the world. Contrary to popular belief, there is no 'gay gene.' People are taught their perversions by other people and the society they're born into. The scripture says that "God gave them over to shameful lusts..." [He let them do what men guided by Satan do]. Adam and Eve chose in the beginning the god they and their children would worship. And man does the things his god does. They pervert whatever God has made. For now, God is allowing it. But when the time is right, He will "deliver" the world from its perverse god and all his ways. He can and will do it. (MORE)
Leviticus 18:22 says-Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman, that is detestable. Romans 1: 26-27,32 says-Because of this God gave them over to shameful lusts.

Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 says-Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor the idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders not thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

In all honesty, its an abomination to God. However, homosexuality is like any other sin (for example adultery) and no sin is too big for G-d. Once you are born-again, God will gradually deliver you from homosexuality and start making you more Christ-like and more how He intended you to be. I know it… has come across that Christianity totally hates homosexuals etc, but that's not the right way to put in my opinion. Yes, God does hate all sin, including homosexuality BUT He loved YOU so much that He would take on flesh and die a brutal death to take on your punishment for your sins, all he asks is for you to believe in Him, love Him, become His child, and follow him. Give God a chance ;-) He's worked wonders in my life. I too, was on the verge of becoming a full fledged homosexual (lesbian) but God saved me just right on time, we both worked it out together and it was a process of deliverance and God has changed me totally. Now I'm a follower of Christ and earnestly waiting for His return :-) I'm VERY happy. Please give God a chance, He's real and He loves you. He wants to be your Papa. (MORE)
Speaking of getting a 'close relationship' with the God of the Bible, as in ANY relationship, the first thing to do, is to: LEARN ABOUT the other person. In this case, God . (John 17:3) There are several ways to do this: 1. Look at his accomplishments. Look around in the natural world thoug…htfully (Romans 1:20 ).....The beauty and the power of the heavens, the stars and planets(Psalm 8:3), the natural cycles (Job 36:27, 28; Ecclesiastes 1:7; Isaiah 55:10), the make-up of all living things(Psalm 139:16), the complexity, the harmony, the LOVE that went into making these things....and ask ourselves, what do they teach me about the creator? 2. Get to know his thoughts , read his letters to you. Look into the Bible, God's Word ( Hebrews 4:12 ). It's like a letter from God to his earthly creation, explaining where we came from, the reason we're here, why there are so many problems on the earth, and what our future holds. The Old and New Testaments both tell us about God, who he is, what he wants from us, and they provide comfort and hope for those who are sighing and groaning over the terrible things happening around us today.(Romans 15:4) A sincere study of the Bible shows that you CAN get close to God. (Acts 17:26-28) He is a God of love (1 John 4:8) (John 3:16)who is warm, kind and approachable and he invites us to develop a close relationship with him.-Isaiah 1:18. Again, as in any relationship, after you've observed the person, and gotten to know their likes and dislikes, and want to know them better, you would 3. Speak to him ... spend time with him, have conversations. IN God's case, this would be through prayer (James 1:5)(Philippians 4:6&7)(1 Thessalonians 5:17) As you learn to appreciate and love this new friend, you don't want to do anything to hurt them (Galatians 5:19-21)(1 Corinthians 6:9-11), so you would try to: 4. Be the best friend you can be . The Bible tells us the kind of people God is looking for to worship him: Psalm 15:1-5 and John 4:24, and then notice and acknowledge when God has been a 'best friend' to YOU, too.(Psalm 94:18 & 19) AS we get to know him, we learn many MANY ways to build an ever growing relationship with him, as our heavenly father. ( James 4:1-17)(Matthew 7:21-23) (MORE)

God made horses because He has an answer for you even before you have the need. He made horses as an example of His unconditional love.

God made man (see Genesis 1:26). He created this whole Galaxy! andit is true. He even created you. Another answer Great question, but in my opinion i think that men made god, ithink it's all a fraud for the church to get easy money, whatreally guarantees us that god exists if he is only one god am…ongmany and every culture has a god, the god of the sun,water this andthat, people really have to be open minded and just because thebible say that there once was a man doesn't that there was a man,personally i am an atheist, but i guess it's what ever your heart'sdesire because we will never know for sure, well at least in anytime soon. Another answer If you literally mean the god with the lower case g then mancertainly made not just him but lots of hims as well since allgods other than the one true God are ultimately the creation ofmen's imagination. One tell-tale sign this is true is that all suchhave human characteristics and human limitations -just take a lookat the Greek pantheon for example. Such a god or gods never createdman. If you mean the true God who has revealed Himself in the Bible, andhas had real dealings with real people in space and time -He is thecreator not just of man but of all there is -in the beginning. Thistrue God has put eternity in the heart of man so that we do nottruly rest until we find Him. (MORE)
God made u because he wants you to be with him and he wants to test you if u will fall for the devil's tricks.
It must be realized that the person or soul is not the abomination but it is the sin. Paul discusses a wide enumeration of the types of people who will not inherit the kingdom. Liars, backbiters, murderers, fornicators, and others are numbered. Fornication is seen as any type of sexual relationsh…ip outside of marriage. God made both male and female in the beginning and purposed them for each other ( see Genesis 2). So a person who commits adultery or sex before or outside of marriage is just as sinful as a person who has sex with the same gender. Notice Paul in Romans lumps them all together. So a liar is just as sinful as a homosexual in the eyes of Jehovah. Jesus rather calls everyone to repentance. We all have temptations that are stronger than others. We all have the choice to act on them or not whether we are gay, straight, bi, or whatever. Repentance and striving to do the best we can to be what God wants us to be. We will all be made perfect in heaven through Jesus. Repented liars, backbiters, and fornicators all. (MORE)
God is very important. The creator of all things, to be exact. Capitalize his name, please!
This is a difficult question to answer, because there are two very different and very polarized views of homosexuality today. One view is traditional and religious, and it definitely does condemn homosexuality. This view is based on the interpretation of certain Bible verses (both in the Hebrew Bibl…e and the New Testament) which forbid homosexual behavior; religious people who use the Bible as their guide believe that homosexuality is a serious sin, and they also believe it is a choice; therefore, anyone who chooses such a lifestyle is going against God's law. Some cultures believe homosexual behavior is such a grave sin that it should be punishable by death. But this is not the only view. Western society has become more secular and not everyone goes strictly by the Bible; rather, many people today get their information from a variety of sources, including from science. The scientific community has been providing compelling evidence that homosexuality is genetic (one is born that way and does not choose it). Thus, the other way of looking at homosexuality is that it is not a sin at all. In this interpretation, homosexuals are not seen as guilty of committing evil actions; rather, they are seen as people who deserve the same rights as heterosexual people. It should be noted, however, that society today is still very conflicted about this issue. In the United States, there are some religious denominations that do condemn homosexuality, but unlike 100 years ago, these groups are no longer dominant, although they are still very much a factor in certain conservative parts of the country. On the other hand, a few states (mostly in the north and the east) have become so accepting of gay men and lesbians that there is now marriage equality, which gives equal marriage rights to both homosexual and heterosexual people. And a few other states which do not allow gay marriage allow a legal arrangement called civil union. So to sum up, for some traditional and religious people, homosexuality is seen as a sin and a choice and deserves to be condemned. For the more secular people, homosexuality is genetic and is not seen as inherently evil or sinful-- it is just seen as different. (MORE)
No. God loves ALL his children he is perfect and he makes everyonein his image so he made some people gay and that was his plan. Youdon't punish something that you created.
Answer: God doesn't say homosexuality is a sin. The word "homosexuality"isn't in the Bible. He says: "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination ." (Lev.18:22) " Abomination ": "( tebel ") --mixture, i.e. unnatural bestiality: KJV--confusion." (Literal Biblew/Strong's …Definitions) " Sin " is defined in the Bible as the transgression[breaking] of the Ten Commandments ["... Sin is the transgression of the law ." -- I John 3:4]. Under the heading of "sexual sin"... the Commandment says thatillicit sex [adultery] between a man and a woman is " sin ." Homosexuality is [confusion]... the"disgusting," abominable [unnatural bestial] perversion of sex,that God created. Homosexuality transcends mere "sin." It's toovile and unthinkable to dignify by mentioning it among the normal,plain old "detestable" sins enumerated in the Commandments, thewages of which earn us death. "Do not defile yourselves in any of these ways, because this is howthe nations that I am going to drive out before you became defiled.Even the land was defiled; so I punished it for its sin, and theland vomited out its inhabitants. But you must keep My decrees andMy laws. The native-born and the aliens living among you must notdo any of these detestable things, for all these things were doneby the people who lived in the land before you, and the land becamedefiled. And if you defile the land, it will vomit you out as itvomited out the nations that were before you." (Lev.18:24-28 NIV ) Jewish Answer . The Hebrew word tevel ×ª××, (not tebel) doesn'tappear in Leviticus 18:22. The real Hebrew word in Lev 18:22 is to'evah (×ª××××) which means "unkosher" or"inappropriate for a Jewish person." Jewish people do not believethis law applies to non-Jews. Also, sex is never actually mentionedin that verse; it is implied, leaving us with multipleinterpretations. Furthermore, Unlike Jews, Christians believe they can impose theirown interpretations of God's laws on people who are not part oftheir faith. As proof of this: most Jewish denominations interpretthis verse to refer to rape for the purpose of humitilation. It isalso talking about heterosexual men, who are definitely prohibitedby the law from engaging in same-sex behavior. But since Christiansdo not have a culture of considering other viewpoints, they can'tconceive of the fact that God's laws might have more than oneinterpretation, intentionally keeping it flexible, in order thatthe law can still apply in future generations. See related links, where Rabbi Stephen Greenberg discussesleviticus 18:22. (MORE)
You can't make a homosexual, it's not something that can be created. It's just who you're attracted to, it's with you from birth, even do you might not know it.. Nothing can make someone homosexual if they're not homosexual. It's not a choice, it's just how it is. So genetics makes a girl homosexual…. (MORE)

Assembly of God teaches that homosexuality is an abomination and a sin. Assembly of God teaches that homosexuality is an abomination and a sin.
yes, god does see homosexuality as "detestable" as written in the bible, but understand this. he thinks that about homosexuality, NOT the person committing the act but the act itself. God loves each and every one of us as a father would love his children. He would never say that one of his children …is an abomination, even if we fall short of his glory. nobody is perfect. (MORE)
For Homosexuality , called Sodomy in scripture, God says plainly and clearly in Genesis 13:13, Leviticus 18:22 , Romans 1:27, I Timothy 1:8-10 what He thinks about Homosexuality. It is an abomination and is not natural. Deuteronomy 22:5 A woman must not wear men's clothing, nor a man wear wo…man's clothing, for the Lord your God detests anyone who does this. 1 Corinthians 6:9 Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders. For drinking God continually warns against it and against being deceived by it. The wise man simply stays away from it all together. There are many verses on this subject but I only list a few. A search online can give you much more. Leviticus 10:9, Numbers 6:3, Judges 13:4, Proverbs 20:1, 23:31 , Habakkuk 2:5, Romans 14:21, Ephesians 5:18 (by the way - excess in this verse means SIN like it does in Matthew 23:25 or I Peter 4:3,4) Answer 1. Homosexality Actually, homosexuality is rarely mentioned. First, any reference to Leviticus or the rest of the Old Testament based on it can be ignored. Levitical Law was superceded by the New Covenant in Jesus Christ. Those who cite Leviticus 18 as a passage against homosexuality fail to mention also that just a few verses either side are passages condemning wearing two different kinds of cloth, clipping the sides of your hair and eating pork. Christians are not bound by Levitical Law or we would still stone adulterers, ostracise women during menstruation and be circumcised if a male. This cherrypicking of scripture to suit one's own prejudices is wrong. And to say that God doesn't 'like' homosexuals is even moe wong. God loves everyone - unconditionally, even homosexuals, even bigots who use scripture wrongly to back up their own prejudices. In the New Testament the only references come from Paul. Even here Paul never refers to a normal homosexual relationship as we would know today. He uses the term < arsenokoi > which does not mean 'homosexuals' but 'pagan homosexual prostitutes' and in each case Paul mentions this, it is in the context of his condemning Christians (eg in Corinth) who purport to be Christian and yet still practise pagan rituals with the said prostitutes. Moreover, in Romans Paul is condemmning those who force others (or do so themselves by choice) to leave their natural sexuality (whether homosexual or heterosexual) and go outside their natural tendency, again or the sake of pagan worship. Nowhere in scripture is the sort of commited gay relationship we would know today ever mentioned, except to allued that certain relationships (eg Ruth/Naomi, David/Jonathan) may well have been homosexual. Jesus had absolutely nothing to say on the matter. o nowhere in scripture does it ever say God doesn't 'like' what we would term as a 'homosexual'. 2, Drunkenness As for drunkenness. this is different. Again, the only verses that specifically mention the 'evils of drink' are Levitical or are a few verses in Paul that again are often taken out of context and without due regard of the kind of people to whom he was writing. It s recorded in the gospels that Jesus enjoyed a party - he was known as an 'imbiber' -in other words he enjoyed a drink. On one occasion the pompous pharisees who claimed to be holier-than-thou, who took scripture as ultra-literal despite it making their and others' lives a misery, pointed their fingers at Jesus in a very disapproving way because he liked to party. ' But I have come to give you life', he said, 'and life in all its fullness'. Therefore for Christians all over the world this means that we must put God in the centre of our lives first, we should love others as we would love ourselves, and we are to enjoy life to the full. That means that parties and drinking are totally acceptable.. However, we are warned that drinking to excess - and especially wanton drunkenness -- is wrong. It is wrong on so many counts as it can lead to violence, sexual promiscuity, illness and addiction, ruining lives rather than being able to live life to the full. This is a sin as it violates Christ's teaching. But drinking in moderation,socially and for pleasure is perfectly acceptable; if it was acceptable to Jesus then it must be acceptable to us.. (MORE)
Disco is loved by most genders,races and religions. Never heard that gay's love it more unless it's the Village People.
God does not hate. Period. People have made this statement for their own purposes and beliefs. A large number of these people are in fact gay and refuse to admit to it. They preach against it which is self hate and they think if they are loud enough, no one will suspect the of being gay.
Does God really hate homosexuals or was that put in by mankind because humans cant handle baggage or anyone that's different from them?
No he doesn't hate people for who they are. He gave man choice and the hate that people do to others is a choice they make. Sadly people still hate people who are different in some way. This just reflects the problems they have and not the person who they hate. Just like the bully who causes another… student problems it is a matter of not feeling power in their life and to feel the power they pick on others. To fight this type of person we have to deny them the power they want and there are many ways to do that. (MORE)
No one said that. This is a Christian interpretation of the storyof Sodom and Gomorrah. Jews look at this story quite differently, and do not link it tohomosexuality in the way that Christians do.
There are many different types of theology, so no single answer will satisfy everybody, however in general it seems that the defining characteristic of God is that He is (or is believed to be) the Creator of the universe. Anyone who has created the universe would be able to claim the title of God.
It depends on which god and which religion you are talking about.Different religions have different views on homosexuality. It is very dangerous to speak on behalf of God, but I feel that Godloves everyone, and is more concerned with war and suffering, thanhe is with how people have orgasms.
How does the bible reconcile the concept of agape love and homosexuality It appears you should love each other AGAPE and god will deal with those involved in homosexuality Is that correct?
Yes that is correct. Agape is unconditional love it is not emotional tender love. "Christian love, whether exercised toward the brethren, or toward men generally, is not an impulse from the feelings, it does not always run with the natural inclinations, nor does it spend itself only upon those f…or whom some affinity is discovered. Love seeks the welfare of all, Rom_15:2, and works no ill to any, Rom_13:8-10; love seeks opportunity to do good to 'all men, and especially toward them that are of the household of the faith,' Gal_6:10. See further 1 Corinthians 13 and Col_3:12-14." - From Notes on Thessalonians, by Hogg and Vine, p. 105. Answer Agape love (as further described from the same reference above) is epitomised in the love of God to man, able to be expressed among Christians through the power of the Holy Spirit which they possess. The love of God to man is clearly shown to its greatest degree in Jesus and His total sacrifice unto death for lost sinners. It is total confusion to pretend that this love somehow does away with all of God's standards of right and wrong, whether it be in relation to homosexuality or anything else. In fact in would be totally unloving to not tell the truth and so lead some to believe that God's standards have changed just because ours have. In such a case this could ultimately lead to judgement where there is no repentance. This is no different from pretending that murder is ok, whether it be the born or unborn, or stealing, or greed or pride etc. All are rebellion against God and His will, which is always for our good and yes, even our pleasure, since in being within His will we are totally fulfilled. Also common today is the assertion that those who tell the truth in this matter are homophobes and haters which is not at all true - especially when one considers that Jesus died to save all people from their sins and underwent unbelievable agony for all of us. He did this, not that we may continue under the power of sin, whatever it is but be free from it. In a few words, the Bible doesn't try and reconcile the what cannot be reconciled. According to the Bible, agape love would require that we seek to help all to find peace and freedom in Christ. This is never found by encouraging sin but by helping those who sin, whatever it is to be free from it. Nor does this make the few who dare to tell the truth any better than others -we all have our own sins. (MORE)
Is the homosexual nature of God self-evident in the fact that he is without spouse or significant other making him not only gay but non-monogamous?
No, it is not self-evident; it is actually a contradiction interms. Assuming that God is a person with human qualities, which issomething that all major God-fearing religions would contest, thedefinitions would still not hold. If God is without spouse, thatwould make God celibate or non-committal a…s opposed to homosexuallycharged. Homosexual individuals have as much propensity as straightindividuals for engaging or abstaining from relationships as anatural condition. However, since many countries openly persecutehomosexuals or condemn them societally, many of these relationshipsare more hidden or do not form out of fear of reprecussions, notbecause of something inherent. Additionally, being non-monogamousmeans that God would have multiple partners, when, according toquestion's perception he has no partners. (MORE)

Your right God hates homosexuality but God didn't createhomosexuals. God doesn't force people to obey Him and this kind ofbehaviour is a result of people turning away from God and His ways.
