Are you wondering whether God loves gays?

Here’s a humorous but true assessment of the issue!
10 – God and Gay both start with a “G”.

9 – God knew we would be gay before we were born – and He made us anyway. — (Jeremiah 1:5; Isaiah 49:1; Romans 8:28-31). He let LGBT people write some of His favorite Gospel songs, direct some of His favorite choirs and called many to television and megachurch ministries.

    I have no doubt that god loves homosexuals, he loves everyone. But the bible is clear that homosexuality is a sin. (1cor6:9) To say otherwise is clearly perverting scripture. But through salvation were made a new creation (2cor 5:17) and can overcome any sin romans (rom8:37-39) and jesus saves us in our sin not after we’ve over come it. (rom5:7-9)

      God Bless you friend! Thanks for taking the time to respond. We’re talking about eternal salvation and souls here, so obviously this is going to be an opinion that’s strongly held on both sides.

      You are citing this verse to claim that homosexuality is a sin – I Corinthians 6:9 (KJV) “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind. “ I assume you (or your bible version) are misinterpreting the Greek word “malakos,” defined here as “effeminate” to mean homosexuals – when it refers more accurately to pedophilia (sexual relations between a man and boy) or male prostitution. Or you are making a dangerous assumption about the word “arsenokoitay” translated here as “abusers of themselves with mankind.” I have to quote a straight ally here by the name of Andrew Little because he explains it best:

      “As far as arsenokoitay (the word translated by the KJV as “abusers of themselves with mankind”) is concerned, it appears twice in scripture and not at all in classic Greek literature. It is a compound word, not uncommon in Greek. 1 Cor 6:9 uses arsenokoitay and 1Tim 1:10 uses arsenokoitais. The words combined to make the first word are arsen (adjective neuter/singular), o (masculine definite article) and koitay (noun feminine/singular). The second word is the same, except that koitais is feminine/plural.

      Now, the first thing is that the Greek language is gender specific. These words have feminine endings which means they refers to something female. The word parts are varied, however. “arsen” means “male”. “O” is the male definite article (the). koitey, the root of koitay and koitais, means “bed” or “place where koitus (coitus) occurs” – can we presume “female’s bed”, since “koitay/ais” is feminine?

      What was being communicated here? No-one is really sure. The KJV opted for “the abusers of themselves with mankind”. The NIV went with “homosexual offenders”. The NRSV went with “sodomites”. … The Vulgate, translated 1000 years earlier, and closer to the original culture, than the KJV, translated [the original Greek word into the Latin] “adulteri”, which means “adulterer.” …”

      Thank you Andrew Little. As you can see Chris, this is one of many passages where words can be translated various ways. Cultural bias has led us to cling to the assumption that homosexual people are being referred to here. But that conclusion is an assumption – akin to the assumptions we’ve made about the Bible condoning the oppression of African Americans, women, people with disabilities, etc. etc. I say that it is a dangerous assumption because it has led to the suicide of many young people, the condemnation of many God-fearing gays and the mis-characerization of our God as being one who plays favorites among the diverse array of humans He created. These mis-interpretations reveal more about the character of the human heart than they do about God’s. For certain clarity I like to use what Jesus said about homosexuals. (Which is nothing.)

    God made both MAN and WOMAN not GAYS…..

    The Genesis account of God’s creation of the first male and female gives a clear picture that is extremely different from evolutionary views in our culture. God designed both the man and woman in His own image equally (Genesis 1:26–27).

    Adam was created first, but God decreed that it was not good for man to be alone (Genesis 2:18). Therefore, God fashioned Eve out of Adam’s rib. The well-known Bible commentator Matthew Henry said that Eve was “made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved.”2

      Thanks for mentioning Matthew Henly earlwayne, I appreciate his thoughtful commentary immensely, and as a woman I’m glad to see his support of equal rights :-)
      However, it’s pretty clear that the first human being created in God’s image was androgynous – let’s actually look at a Jewish opinion on this passage from the Torah
      (from Simple to Remember – Judaism Online – http://www.simpletoremember.com/articles/a/jewish-view-on-gender-differences/):

      “God created the man in His image; in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them. And God blessed them. (Genesis 1:27-28)
      Why “them”? This was before the creation of Eve!
      The Jewish Oral Tradition provides us with a fascinating insight into this grammatical oddity. The first human, it tells us, was really an androgynous being, both male and female in one body, sophisticated and self-sufficient.
      But if God had created such a complete human being, why the later separation into two parts, into Adam and Eve? The answer given is that God did not want this first human creation to be alone”

      Earlwayne, I think if we look at this without bias, it seems that God didn’t want His androgynous being to be alone. That doesn’t mean we should assume that God wanted all the separated males and females to all be straight or all of them to be gay, or cousins for that matter, but he didn’t want humans to be lonely. So we’re meant to keep each other company. Some times we fall in love, sometimes we’re just friends. But yes, as Matthew Henry said, we’re all equals, and straight, gay or intersex, we’re all loved by God.
