I'm curious about whether or not people in this community consider homosexuality a sin or simply a lifestyle misunderstood by the Christian world at large. In other words, are you one of those people who "love the sinner, hate the sin" or do you not even see what the big deal is?

I found this interesting...one would argue that Leviticus is filled with "old laws" that changed once Jesus came about, which is why only a few are still considered by Christians to be sins... (when's the last time you ate shrimp or shaved and then ran to God crying for forgiveness?) And that got me thinking, if those are "old laws" and there was a "new covenant" with Jesus, what did Jesus himself have to say about gays? I talked to my friend who was taking a course in his college about the New Testament and specifically Jesus's role...and while Paul wrote letters, Jesus never uttered one word about gays. At least that's what my friend said. If you have a verse where Jesus says something let me know and I won't hold this position any longer...but I am doubtful as to what the "new covenant" position on gays really is...

well i did comment the n.t. proofs against homosexuality. in Rom., 1 Cor. and 1 Tim. now realize that Jesus's ministry was only 3 years and everyone was so deepened in the religion of that time that He had to devote the majority of His time to setting the record straight about the new covenant and He didn't really have time to reinterate all the sins that still were sins. He left that task up to His disciples.
