God hates sin by Joseph Aquilina (Times of Malta, Sep 4, 2007)

In answering William Flynn (August 25), saying that Jesus left the subject of homosexuality alone, may I ask what Bible is he reading?

On the contrary, Jesus (God) was always against the act of homosexuality as much as He was against adultery, theft, drunkenness, etc (Galtians 5:21).
The act of homosexuality is a choice some people make. They were not created that way.
Homosexuality was never in God's plan and it will never be now or in the future. God's word (the Bible) was not written for an age past but it was revealed by the Holy Spirit and written by men of God for past, present and future ages. God never changes His mind as some would like Him to. If God says that it is a choice a person makes and not God's intentions, then that is what we should be concerned about and not whether we agree that homosexuality is fine and dandy. If we agree with them, then we are as much guilty as they are.
Homosexuality is a choice, a lifestyle that destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.
They changed the truth of God into a lie and dishonoured their bodies between themselves (Romans 1: 24).

The women changed the natural use into that which is against nature (Romans 1: 26).
And the men did the same thing; they changed the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust towards one another; men with men working that which is unseemly... (Romans 1:27).
So, please, don't try to convince others (who perhaps never looked at the Bible) that Jesus left the subject of homosexuality out and ignored it.
Jesus loves all people because God is love, but He hates sin.
