I agree that God will deal with it like every other sin. most people seem to think we hate gays but we don't. we hate the sin not the person. like we hate a lie but not the lier.
bit like u said God will deal with it. like every other sin.
I wanted to write this because of thereal's post, and a few other statements. First On homosexuality,
Both religion's condemn homosexuality, and find it as a traitorous act against "God". However there are stark differences between the two religions on this very topic. Islam advocates a legal system known as Sharia, and the majority of Muslims want it to be official law. The legal system is based off the Quran's word, and in the Quran's word "If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both. If they repent and amend, Leave them alone" 4:16 With this in mind, homosexual acts are legally punishable if you do not except Allah. Some Islamic "scholars" argue if stoning is the correct punishment for such actions.
The Bible does not really offer a whole legal system like Sharia nor a official law system where homosexual acts would be punishable. What it generally says about homosexuality is that it is a sin, but is a crime committed against yourself and God, and would be dealt with in the afterlife. Really, when you look at it, it is a personal moral code. "But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.[a]
18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. 19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies." Corinthians 6:17-20 (To validate my point.)
I know most of you would jump on me and point out what it says about Leviticus 20:13. However, if you read the whole context, that was a particular punishment for a particular group of people in the Old Testament. Read what the Old Testaments general purpose is. Thank you.
