The actual verse everyone likes to jump on is in Liviticus I believe. It states that A man shall not lay with unanother man.....something like that. If so he shall be put to death. Well that same book says a man shall not lay in the same bed with a women who is menstrating. If so then botht the man and women shall be put to death. How many of you are married? Maybe you should all be put to death who have done this very thing? It also states that if you are caught having sex with animals, you shall be put to death and so shall the animal. I am not knocking the bible, it is a groovy read and yes I am a spiritual person, but was the bible really meant for litteral transaltion? Or is it merely a guide to help you thru your own spirtuality? Or maybe a how to guide too life? (Especially the New Testment the way it is written in parable.) Has content really been lost or distorted over the many years, languages and time periods the books have gone threw? Then again who is right?
Individual Spirtualism is the key. Everyone throws the bible around like an excuss to tell someone they are wrong and are damn to hell.(But as the verse go..."Don't throw stones........."or how about "Don't Judge least ye be judged) I guess for that matter you could probably say that about any organized belief system. I am not trying to knock anyone, or but heads with anyone. I am merely saying I believe the human race, itself, is the biggest problem with it's fractured ,global, spirtuality. Is it too much to ask for people to think ,on thier own, and really search and dig for the for the bigger questions? Is it just easier to accept it, because you read it in a book, or someone told you it is supposed to be that way?
How can anyone really say who is right and who and wrong? Just think of how many religions their are and have been since recorded history. Just think of how divided christianity is itself today. Sorry I did not mean to go on a tear, this has just really been bugging me lately. You see how evil man has been and continues to be to itself in the name of a belief.
Just to clarify to everyone (Because I know belief is a hot botton for everyone) this rant in meant in general. I am not really stuck solely on homosexuality in this post but it is a key issue in society and I used the topic as a stepping stone for what I view as a larger problem with modern belief systems. They have and continue to deeply divide the human race in really negative ways.
In today's technology based way of living,.. that, IMO, is an increasingly alarming problem. I say this, because of the shear destructive power that is now available for someone to prove a point in a really big way.
To get back one point, resoundingly YES, I believe a homosexual will go to heaven. Why would you say someone who is gay will not? The human brain is still such a mystery, and so is the depths of the human condition. Science has found that homosexuallity has alot to do with prenatal brain developement. You could go even one step farther. If you look at this planet and it very long history, as well as, the life that has exstited and is exisiting here. This dose require you to step out of the box (And when I say box I mean you little world and your understanding of it.) (And when I say little box (Because we all have one) I am not trying to insult you in any way just asking you to think) and think about it on a larger timeline. Yes I am talking about evolution. Perfect thought provoking piece of information is the clam. There are only two types of clams: One male, and another male that can change sex at will. I say this to present you with the idea that maybe SEX is the mutation and not homosexuality. This idea dose require you to look at this bigger picture from the bigger perspective of the universe and not just our little corner of it. It is very possible that this whole thing (Meaning the whole universe itself) was set into motion by god and has really taken billion upon billions of years to end up here,....today. What happens to egocentric religious belief when life is found outside of this planet. When I say egocentric I mean what I mean. Life in itself is self serving,.........survival of the fitest. Man has a false sense of entitlement that is used on a daily basis to excuss its own actions. "We are the only life anywhere and god looks like us, and we were created in gods image, and O yhea Jesus is white,....... Damn we are so special!!!!!" Yes there is large amounts of sarcasim there.
Well I hope what I have said has not offended anyone and I hope it's points were not misinterepted or hard to follow, because I covered alot in a short. I just feel that if we do not stop thinking about ourselves and really start coming together as a planetary society, it will ultimately be our undoing. Thank you for your time.
