- Don’t quote me any English translations - read my grammatical analysis: Does the Bible forbid gay sex?
Ramen Bowl of Jewish Hermeneutics
- Interpretive (translation of passage subject to dogma/doctrines not found in the passage)
- Cultural conservative:
You should not sleep with a man as you would a woman. It's an abomination.
You should not sleep with your male spouse on your female spouse's bed. It's an abomination.
Either you are merely playing the fool or you are attempting to justify your position that anal intercourse is a natural phenomenon endorsed by the Creator.
You should not have sex with your male spouse the same way as you would your female spouse. It's gross. Use different techniques.
Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over the livestock and over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.”Your position, which you claim is creative, but if practiced is not going to create anything of worth—except a mess, maybe, if the person suffers from giardia, crohn’s disease, etc. Neither is any person, committed to your position, going to procreate life for future generations—a mandate that does not conform with the purpose stated in the book of Genesis.
So God created man in his own image,
in the image of God he created him;
male and female he created them.
And God blessed them. And God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the heavens and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:26-28)
God created man, male and female, and said to them (having become one), “Be fruitful and multiply….” Under those instructions, male to male attempts or female to female attempts to be fruitful and multiply, as futile as they are, could very well invite consequences that are detrimental to a person’s eternal well-being—especially, if God is the judge of all the Earth.
- Far be it from you to do such a thing, to put the righteous to death with the wicked, so that the righteous fare as the wicked! Far be that from you! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do what is just?” (Genesis 18:25)
