It was pretty clear to me. The passage is "..whosever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."<br />
No footnotes (such as "unless they are homosexual").<br />
<br />
So the answer is, by implication, yes, I believe homosexuals are not going to hell.

The Bible was written by men, and god is hokum.

Hear, hear!

giggles

Man people are ruff on here......maybe if the whole freakin world wasn't one big assed rush to judgement we wouldn't need to even post on these stupid sites...well at least not in such angry ways...lighten up ! Lets not worry whos going where..or who believes what..lets worry about important things...like is there really that much of difference between and Emu and Ostritch that they really require two different names...cmon they are both big ugly birds...see one name ..Done ! -)

Aww come on MJ,<br />
You've never met the guy, all you've heard are rumors written up by cranky old men.

Troubleshooter I think any way of thinking that demeans God's love for any group of people is designed by people for people who love to hate people. <br />
<br />
Wow that was a tongue twister.

the most important things laid down by god is the ten commandments i shall not be gay is not one of them

GOd does not care if you are Gay or Straight.<br />
<br />
God created everyone.

awful just awful........ talk about on the job training...

Sorry for your experience Troubleshooter I hope that you have gained something positive to build a happy life for yourself and your loved ones.

Hitler?????? You're creating a new Hitlerism religion you say? HAHAHAHAH go on....you're too funny. I'm speaking of religious beliefs. Try to stay on topic. That a completely different subject, like comparing apples to hot steaming feces.<br />
<br />
Do you know of any scripture that speaks directly of homosexuals?<br />
<br />
Do you know how the bible describes hell? <br />
Care to share?

First, what we "feel" means nothing at all. <br />
Hitler "Felt" he was right.<br />
<br />
What does the Bible say about homosexual conduct? <br />
<br />
Do you know what hell is accordind to the Bible?<br />
<br />
We should still have love for those who are homosexual.

Some would indeed be offended by my "not so main stream" sense of humor. I tend to lean towards the sarcastic side (most times to prove a point or simply amuse myself (((giggles))). I suppose your super x-ray vision saw the truth behind my earlier response. You cleverly decided not to cause an emotional explosion instead utilizing your weapon of reason. All crap aside, I'm fairly harmless to good guys/gals. <br />
<br />
Nice to meet ya! You've got quite a following.

Some would take your patronizing remarks as insults, but I'll take them as compliments. I do consider myself a soldier of reason and a super hero of sorts. You had no way of knowing it, but in other threads I have talked about how sometimes I must jump into a phone booth to change into my SuperRational man outfit, so that I can vanquish the proponents of racism, bigotry, religious fundamentalism, and other forms of harmful silliness. <br />
<br />
I am glad to hear that you have not been completely blinded by the religion you choose to believe in. As evidenced by the shameful and deceitful "Vote yes on Prop 8" campaign a few months ago, too many of your religious brothers and sisters lack your common sense.

thank you for sharing Betty

resem9, I think God would welcome your questions. If you ever decided to maybe one day imagine his existence.

Aren't you the EP freedom fighter....lol...Let me first say that I'm tickled pink (well actually pinkish brown) that my cliff hanger title triggered a superhero cape that magically grew from back of your neck. Its very cute. I admire people who stand up for what they believe in.<br />
<br />
Now, on the issue of Salvation for homosexuals.....I'm surprised you would even care what I thought about heaven or hell since you're an atheist. Really where are we going with this? You could probably care less if anyone condemns a person to hell (since in your mind it doesn't exist).<br />
<br />
However to satisfy your curiosity as funny as it is to me. I want to bring clarification. I love a man and a woman. I believe in love. If love is not allowed in heaven. I wouldn't want to be there. I can feel my wings growing now from my back as I'm typing this. (batting my eyes)<br />
<br />
(insert big grin ===========>_____here__________)<br />
<br />
The scripture I posted above is all inclusive for those who believe it to be truth. Neither gender, nationality nor sexual orientation can keep you away from those glorious pearly gates only hate will. <br />
<br />
Well, I think I've typed enough. Does that answer your question?

Ya. <br />
<br />
You see, the confusion comes from the fact that your title "Are you kidding me?" could mean both "of course they're going to hell!" but it could also mean "of course not!"

who me?

I'm with Betty on this one. If there is a god (which I firmly believe there isn't) lets just say I'd have a few "questions" and he wouldn't want me anywhere near him.<br />
<br />
I truly hope that you agree with the title in this room and, as VendettA said, aren't just trying to stir up trouble

ichooselife-<br />
<br />
So do you or don't you think that homosexuals are going to hell? I'm just asking because sometimes people join groups that they don't agree with just to stir up trouble, and the title of your story and comment could be taken either way, that you do believe they're going to hell or that you think it's ridiculous to think that.

thanks for sharing with me.

I most certainly do puck. It is imperative that this message is spread across the world.<br />
<br />
Been a while how have you been?

Christs own words, according to the Bible.<br />
Mark 16,15-18<br />
"Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will follow those who believe. In my Name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues, they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick and they will recover.<br />
