Levitical ignoramus- defined as someone who has no concept of the three divisions of law as described in the book Leviticus. Please get educated and check out this link.
There needs to be a controversial topic section so all religious/ political/ sexuality related pins can be taken off of the humor board
I agree Abby.
I guess you could also read it in the New Testament try 1Corinthians:9-11. Being homosexual isn't the only sin, but it IS sin.
cant argue with ignorance
but why exactly is it a sin to love someone and be happy. why does it matter if its the same gender. god should want all of his children to be happy equally.
@ Veronica, I don't make the rules. God knows what He is doing and why He calls it sin. There is a reason He created man and then woman from his rib and calls homosexuality wrong. you could seek Him for the answer , He is faithful to answer those who diligently seek Him
@Brandy Waterfall Lincoln-Wilcox, until you prove to me that God exists then your argument is INVALID. He is actually not faithful to answer those who diligently seek him. Have you looked around lately? Your God doesn't do SH*T!
That's the child's answer. "I don't get evrything I want so you're stupid!" What kind of argument is that? Read the book before you bash it. Try being educated and informed rather than simply ignorantly opinionated.
@ Christine Gubler. I am so sincerely sorry that you do not believe in the goodness of "my God". He is alive and there is beauty and miracles all around, every day- you just have to seek it out. Bad things happen too, to believers and non believers. Have you sought him? Because I doubt you have DILIGENTLY sought Him or you would know He is alive. As people we are able to find what we are seeking-good and bad. God gives us the freedom to choose, He is not going to make you believe him. But tell me this , if I spend my life believing and being kind and decent and He turns out not to be real , what have I lost? Nothing, I lived a good life as a good person. Now, what happens if you are wrong? What will you lose?
Also @ Christine - I'm not sure why you called me " Brandy WATERFALL" , I don't know what that means. Also, I can't make you believe in God just as you cannot make me doubt Him. I do pray that He manifests Himself to you in such a real and loving way that you will never be able to deny Him.
@Brandy Waterfall Lincoln-Wilcox The only difference between you and I is that I believe in one less God than you. No big deal, right? I am sincerely sorry that you need a believe in a fictional character to be happy. Have you tried to live life, be good and do good without the idea of God? If I live my life and do good and don't believe and I find out there is a god, what will I lose? If your God judges me for not believing in something that has the ability to convince me that he exists but doesn't...well then...not a God that I want to worship anyway. :) I live a good life, do good things and serve my community without God. How is that bad and why do you care?
Pinterest automatically did that. Not me. :)
@Alisa Bobzien Rice- who are you talking about?
Not sure why Pinterest insists on changing your names.
Divorce is also a sin. But, I'm glad my mum divorced my father.
Who cares what is a sin. Christians are a minority in this world, only those that choose to remain uneducated and ignorant of science should adhere to their beliefs. Separation of church and state
Many rivers leads to the same ocean. The only real difference is the terrain they cross .
In the words of Gandhi I like your Christ I do not like your Christians they act so little like their Christ.
Every religion picks and chooses what rules they want to follow and what rules they want to condemn another person by. None of us are judges
Wow you people are so mean. Is it really doing you any good to argue, on Pinterest? You want to argue your religious views do it on Facebook. I came on here to get away from this stupid shit so thank you for ruining this too. Dicks
Every religion had murdered and maimed in the name of their God. No one is right or better than the other
That passage is talking about what is okay for the israelites to do. This is before jesus has come down and saved us. It is like when they used to have to slaughter a lamb in order for them to be purified of sin. We do not have to do this anymore because of Jesus. Homosexuality has been deemed wrong in many passages and books in the bible. God DESTROYED an entire city, soddom and gomorrah, because there were homosexuals. God is very against this and he has proved it over and over in the bible. So before ya'll start trashing Leviticus read the whole book and know your facts. read Judges 19, Genisis 19, Leviticus 20:13, Romans 1:26-28. This is a sin just as lying and stealing is. People are saying that it is not a choice but it is always a choice. Everything you do is a choice, it is your choice. Dont try to justify it by sayingt that it is not something you can control and it cant be helped but you are lying to yourself. if you have feelings for someone of the same sex that is a choice. Its like wanting to steal something. Its a feeling you have and you chose wether or not to act upon it. This whole subject is getting way out of control. It is wrong it has always been wrong and it will always be wrong. That dosent mean we have to shun someone that is gay. We show them love and try to help them the best we can. Being gay is no different than being a theif. So why do people try to justify this sin and not others. Everybody sins and God forgives them all. But don't try to fool yourself into beleive that Homosexuality is right. Because you are just lying to yourself.
Abby your comment is everything I wanted to say. 10 points to griffindor
You cant fix stupid and this post is the definition of willful ignorance. Any regular joe can look at a historical text but if you think you can interpret it properly without an education, youre deluded. The Bible is a combination of books w different contexts. You would not go into a library and interpret something you picked up in the history section with the same context as something from the poetry section. Before you spread lies, educate yourself first.
Don't mean to be the bearer of bad news, but those aren't contradictions.
Even if you aren't religious, the Bible is an excellent book on how to live a moral, healthy, fulfilling life.
Disney movies are a good moral reference too but I would not use it to tell others they are wrong and going to he'll
The people that tell others that they're going to hell are hypocritical and stupid. I'm religious and Iv never told anyone that they're going to hell. I'm completely for religious freedom, but I just can't stand that people target Christianity. There's plenty of other religions that seem so much more far fetched, yet nobody targets them. How bout some religious equality?
I didn't mean to type religious. I accidentally hit send before I wrote anything else. What I meant to type before was that religion and pinterest don't mix.
Haha I agree. Plus Abi ranting up there isn't makin anyone happy, or helping the situation. That's by no means how to approach this with a different view.
Gay is okay, that's all I'm saying
I have been going to the same baptist church for 14 years and never once has our preacher told us that we should hate anyone. In fact just the opposite. Not very long ago he found a video and played it for us about a woman whose son was killed by a drunk driver. She learned that because Jesus loved use enough that he was willing to suffer and die for EVERYBODY and for EVERY SIN that she needed to love that man who had killed her son. And eventually after the man got out of jail she helped him find a house (which was right next door to her own), helped him get a job, clean his life up, and loved him like a son. The morale of the story is that you should love people regardless of their sins. We all sin and the Bible says that not one sin is greater than the other. All sin is disgusting in the eyes of God which is why we are supposed to repent. Some people for whatever reason focus on certain sins and try to say they are greater sins then others but they are not. I'm also tired of religious persecution like Joshua said. But maybe if we didn't try to target other people they wouldn't target us. We are supposed to bring people TO CHRIST WITH LOVE and telling them that they are horrible sinners is not the way to do that.
God did not write the bible. I don't live my life by what was rewritten several times by numerous people who didnt even know what a germ was. Don't live your life condeming people who were created by god. If you do then i pitty you when you face him in heaven.
But I hate it when people say "love all sinners!" I mean, while I'm totally willing to love and forgive a drunk driver who accidentally killed a kid and who feels horrible about it, no way in hell am I forgiving a man who raped five preteen girls. No way am I forgiving a man who kidnapped multiple innocent victims on the street only to keep them locked up in his basement for years, torturing them all throughout, and who doesn't feel an ounce of guilt. Fuck that.
I agree. There is no moral story to everything. Some people make bad decisions, some are psychos. That's why there are laws. The same reason the bible was created back in the day. To scare people from not killing or stealing.
Just remember- the only people that believe being gay is wrong (and obv exceptions) is christians. But remember! Not every one is christian. And not everyone believes in the bible. Stop forcing what you think is wrong because of your religion or book on other people. It does not make us wrong because we dont believe like you or think some thing differently. Get over your self!
Umm im Christian and my best friend is a lesbian so not every Christian is against homosexuality.
Exactly. While the Bible states that it is wrong for a man to be with another man (in most translations), many Christians don't believe in that. Most of the Christians I know are normal people just living their daily lives. It's just that the majority of Christians who are against homosexuality are very loud about it.
Well said, plus the bible has been translated like 2000 times. It might be time to update the book. Put some moden day prophets in there. Like Pope Francis, Orprah and Anderson Cooper. Knowledge is power people ;)
I know. When you consider the world back then and think how differently someone back would translate and write down something said to them versus someone from present times, them the difference would be remarkable even if they were both taking notes from the exact same thing.
Hey guys, it said there should be no male gay sex, nothing about women
Biblical marriage = ?
Just another Bible contradiction.
"Tattoo of Leviticus 18:22 forbidding homosexuality: £200. Not knowing that Leviticus 19:28 forbids tattoos: Priceless."
No, it's fine guys, I've read Harry Potter.
Where does it say that gay marriage is a sin in the Constitution? Oh yeah, it doesn't.
I love the bible, it is such a great moral guide.
Seems only fair. Can't cherry-pick which Biblical stipulations to follow and which to discard...right?
Biblical literacy :-)
Seriously, why is THAT the only part they still want to follow? God clearly says that shellfish are also an abomination!
