@High Strangeness,
Nice response. And you are right in that Jesus never would have condoned his disciples killing anyone who lived the lifestyle of a homosexual. The point is, now that we are under grace by means of Christ Jesus, people are being given an opportunity to change so as to do things the way God requires.

Note for example 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10 where it states: "9 Or do you not know that unrighteous people will not inherit God's Kingdom? Do not be misled. Those who are sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, men who submit to homosexual acts, men who practice homosexuality, 10 thieves, greedy people, drunkards, revilers and extortioners will not inherit God's Kingdom. 11And yet that is what some of you were. But you have been washed clean. You have been sanctified; you have been declared righteous in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God."

Note that the apostle is inspired to write the expression: And yet that is what some of you were. This reveals that these ones put away those practices that God forbids. They no longer were those things but had allowed what the Bible teaches and their faith in Jesus saving power to move them past their former course of life. Just as a person who practiced adultery could not expect to have God's favor, so to would it be with a person who practiced homosexual acts as the verse shows.

And we must remember that time is running out. While God has held off on bringing destruction at armageddon, he will not forever do so. Thus now is the time for everyone to use this time of opportunity to bring their lives into harmony with what God requires.

@momoends,
Hey momoends, sorry I'm getting back to you so late. I've been away. Well, the God that I'm talking about is the God of the Bible, Jehovah. Among the reasons that make him worthy of worship is that he truly desires the best for mankind. For example, he and his Son, Jesus, have made it possible for us to have the opportunity to live forever in total perfection and peace.

This means that despite the troubles we see and experience today, soon they will be a thing of the past. Imagine what life on the earth will be like when these texts are fullfilled:

Psalm 37:29 - "Righteous to live on the earth in complete security"
Psalm 46:9 - "All wars to cease, war weapons done away with"
Matthew 5:5 - "Only the meek and peaceable to inherit the earth"
Proverbs 2:22 - "Wicked to be completely removed"
Revelation 21:3, 4 - "All sorrow, suffering, pain and death will be no more"

In his Word he also explains why we suffer today and at the same time reveals Satan to be the true cause of our suffering. God has never been the cause of trails and tests upon good people as James 1:13 shows.

But these are only but a few reasons why Jehovah is worthy of worship.

@anthony1312002,
thats more or less what muslims believe about Alah... think about what Jewish people believe? they don´t believe in Jesus .... About Buda (he was not a God but he considered himself to be "super" human) ... he kind of "preach" the same life lessons you listed on your post....
I´m sorry but you haven´t convinced me yet

I always find it funny that people quote the bible as if its a good source for anything.

Its like you go to a hotel, you havent checked in but are wondering how good the service, staff and quality is. Then the bellhop comes over with their brochure and quotes from it.

"At our hotel we provide the best possible service."

"Our staff is the best chosen and hard working."

"We provide the best possible ingredients that make up our food."

You wouldnt ever see;

"You probably would have been better off staying somewhere else."

Do you honestly think the bible would say, "You are fucked, there is no heaven and your life will be unfair with no justice, deal with it."

Its just plain silly to quote the bible as if its meaningful.

@momoends,
I do not know what you by the others. There is only one God. 1 Corinthians 8:6, "But to us there is but One God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and One Lord Jesus Christ by whom are all things and we by Him."

Quran
7:80 And [We had sent] Lot when he said to his people, "Do you commit such immorality as no one has preceded you with from among the worlds?

11:77 And when Our messengers, [the angels], came to Lot, he was anguished for them and felt for them great discomfort and said, "This is a trying day."

15:59 Except the family of Lot; indeed, we will save them all

21:71 And We delivered him and Lot to the land which We had blessed for the worlds.
26:161 When their brother Lot said to them, "Will you not fear Allah ?

27:55 Do you indeed approach men with desire instead of women? Rather, you are a people behaving ignorantly."

29:26 And Lot believed him. [Abraham] said, "Indeed, I will emigrate to [the service of] my Lord. Indeed, He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise."

37:133 And indeed, Lot was among the messengers.
54:33 The people of Lot denied the warning.
