well I'm going to try my best to answer this...my opinion is that they are people like us and we as humans need to respect what others believe....I don't think they go to hell because even if people don't believe or even if there gay they are still loved by God no matter what...I say no they won't go to hell yes the bible says that Gay marriage is wrong but that doesn't mean there going straight to hell because there gay...I'm pretty sure I'm going to get a lot of thumbs down for this and yes I am sorry that this is the "wrong" answer...you will probably just get different perspectives on this topic..DISCLAIMER: this is just my opinion I respect other people's beliefs and views. If I get thumbs down sorry that my answer wasn't "pleasing" to your perspectives
Where in the bible does it say that? (not arguing or disagreeing I've just starting being good about reading again but in my life in being in the church I can't remember I know it says it's a sin but where does it say you go to hell? I'm curious not saying you're wrong)
I personally don't know, there is no way of knowing someone's fate, it is only for god to know and judge. We have no place to judge. St.Matthew 7:1: judge not, that ye be not judged.
It also says to love the sinner, hate the sin.
I think the whole topic is a complicated matter, it's a difficult to understand. People always think cause I don't agree with being gay I'm "close minded" "homophobic" ect. I don't judge people for being gay, I think it's wrong, but of course I know I don't fully understand. I think that's just there trial for life and it's hard, but god does still love all of us and it's up to him to decide, not us. :) but to answer your question I have no idea!
I do not believe the word gay is in the bible. Love you neighbor as yourself is in there, I believe. The fact that you would even consider asking such a question tends to indicate to me the terrible hurt that can be caused by suspending you own natural feelings and blindly believing what is written down or tought by someone else. Perhaps you might find it interesting to read some other sources about what it is to be a homosexual. You might find it interesting and enlightening.
The Bible is guiding you through life you should incorporate your life by the teachings. Our God is a forgiving God I believe if one ask for forgiveness you are forgiven. We are not 100% sure why men/women are gay is it a choice? One would say yes, but you have to wonder if one of your siblings is gay and why aren't you? I believe this was how you were born. One day it may come to light until then God teaches us to love one another, erase hate.
The bible does state that being gay is a sin. As far as if a gay person goes straight to hell... Well that's only for God to decide. Its not my place or anyone else's to say yes or no. Although being gay is not my "cup of tea" I do have a few gay friends. I don't always agree with it but it's not my life or my choice.
NUMBER ONE: GOD loves us ALL-he says so and HE created us !!! He KNEW US before were even created and approved our journey!SO-why on earth would he not love everyone on here-we didn't make ourselves...
NUMBER TWO: NOWHERE in the bible EVER does it say the word GAY nor that ANYONE is going to hell for it--as a matter of fact there is only ONE reference to ANYTHING homosexual in the BIBLE AND YOU KNOW WHAT??..It is permissable for women as THERE is NOTHING in there about women...
*excerpt***In Romans 1:26-27 Paul is very specific, “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.”
So=to answer you PLAINLY AND EASILY-NO no no NO no NO no
The only thing that will feel judegmental is the existence of ignorance and snobbery amongst the religions-- Bottom line here- GOD made EVERYTHING including Homosexuals and you know what I don't like mushrooms but HE created them and you know what, that's not for ME to judge-I don't have to eat 'em- MIGHT want to look at the BIBLE...seriously-you cannot dispute THE WORDS...only thing you cannot fight is ignorance and one-sideness-a TRUE CHRISTIAN will understand that it all of HIS doing and acknowledgement and approval.....it says so
You probably should not have asked a religious question because all the answers you get are people opinions. Everyone has a different religion so who's to say what is the correct answer for you? There is nothing wrong with being gay btw
This is what i belive...,God is love so He love everyone even gay people , but God doesn't love what they are doing because what they are doing goes against God's teaching. So in simple words, God love the person (gay) but hate the "stuff" they do. It's sad but if they don't do what God says, they are going to Hell.(according to bible)
the best way to live your life is to do what you really feel and live it up to fate whether or not God likes it or not
the world would be horrible if, for example, the only reason we don't kill each other is because we are scared of the law or god. it's better to believe that the only reason we don't kill each other is because we are kind.
so being homesexual : live life the way you feel it and if you are a good person, then
I'm gonna tell you what my preacher says. And I agree with it. Its not the fact of being gay, it's wheather you act upon it or not. You shouldn't act upon it. I personally believe some people are born with different genes that make them that way. It's not really a decision.
All the Bible says about homosexuality is that men are not supposed to have sex with men (or women with women). Gays have no better chance of going to hell than people who commit adultry which the Bible also says not to do.
The ONLY unforgivabe sin in the Bible is blasphemy.
We all are full of sin and do sinful things and we all have an EQUAL chance of going to hell, whatever that is, unless we have gotten ourselves right with God and what most of my fellow Christians have forgotton is that its really up to God and God alone whom he allows into heaven and i think theres gonna be a lot of the self- rightous who are gonna be stunned to find themselves sharing Heaven with gays, druggies, prostitutes etc. since we are ALL loved by God equally and have the same chance at salvation.
Well I'm sure I will catch some slack over this. I have a cousin and a few friends that are gay, and we have debated many times over this issue and when it comes right down to it only our lord Jesus Christ will say who goes where. It is also written in the bible that says "All who call on me will not be saved". Now that interpretation can mean alot of different things to different people, but know this the lord gives us free will to choose what is right and what is wrong. He even leaves us a course guide. BIBLE= Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth... The lord does forgive us for our sins, but we must keep in mind that when we ask forgiveness of something it doesn't help to repeat the same sin again next week. Also we can never buy our way into heaven. I hear it all the time from people. "well he has not accepted christ, but he's a good person".... I win the lottery tomorrow and give it all away to help people, that still won't get me into heaven. Only excepting Jesus Christ, and following his word.. But what about Sodom and Gomorra? The lord destroyed it, mainly because of homosexuality. It had nothing to do with were they good people or our they not. So in all fairness I think it's safe to say this question will be answered when we are all called at judgement day. I love you all and god bless...
Turns out it's between the person and GOD. We Christians have a nice saying. While its a good thing , as humans we often get it wrong. GOD however never gets it wrong. The saying is. Love the sinner (as we are all sinners) but hate the sin.
I hope not, cuz alot of people, friends included will be going to hell for a super crappy reason. This question can be debated forever . Its nice to see everyone agreeing to disagree without hatred. Btw, Nobody chooses to be gay. Why would anyone want to put themselves in lifestyle that includes hatred , fear, ignorance , disappointment, ridicule , loneliness , and inequality to name a few. ask any gay person how easy it is, and if they chose being gay . you will be surprised if you don't already know.
God loves all of us otherwise he wouldn't of create us, you can't decide to be gay or straight it just happens, and all of you people who believe being gay is wrong, you need to do a LOT of growing up, god will surely forgive all of us for our sins because he controls us.
I am not a religious person but from what I have studied god is a kind, caring person, who will forgive you for sins. I personally feel like this is the interracial marriage disagreement all over again. People don't like change but look where we are now. It takes getting use to but I honestly think that people will be more accepting if they give it a chance just as they did with interracial couples.
This life is a time to prepare to meet God. The Lord loves all his children, but not their behaviors. Gays do need our love but we needn't accept all their choices. Romans 1:27 describes how the Apostle Paul felt about homosexuality. While we all may believe in God, it's equally important to believe what He says.
romans 1:26-32 for this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one to another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet................Who knowing the judgment of God, they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. that's Bible...however, if you turn from these things and repent to the Lord and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and don't turn back to your old ways you can make it to Heaven. but if you die in these things.. woe unto you. . God IS a loving God.. that's why He gives everyone a chance to come to Him.. its up to us to make the decision to serve Him. God doesn't make a person Gay.. Satan does ..
