Does the Bible support killing gays?
This is another tough subject to conquer. Sometimes the Bible is hard to understand when it comes to knowing what a person can and cannot do. I do believe all answers to all of our hardest questions can be found in the Bible. We simply must come forward with an open heart and mind and be willing to listen. God will speak to us if we are willing to hear.
I think we all know there is a difference between murder and killing. Murder is done to innocent people who don’t deserve to die. That is a sin and should be punished. Sometimes though, if someone is going to harm you or your loved ones, you may have no choice but to kill them. There are rare times when killing is acceptable under God’s law. Time of war and battle fall into this category. But in what other situations is killing acceptable? When our moral foundations are threatened, is that something we can kill for? Let us open us the good word that the Lord God has provided for us and read what he has to say to us today.
If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
I know this seems very straightforward. We sometimes have to think over the words of the Bible, and make sure they do not have hidden meanings. We must address spiritual and historical contexts. I know from my discussions with many other believers that often this is considered to be Old Covenant law. This may or may not be true, let us look at this at that concern. If this were Old Covenant law, there would be no supporting texts in the New Testament. So we must open up our New Testament and see how it treats this subject matter.
