Romans Chapter 1 Revisited

Fundamental MissPerception

Romans 2:1 Anyone?

"Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones." (ABOVE)


In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. (BELOW)

What is the common denominator?
 Not "homo-sex" (the top set of images are all men with women)!
The common denominator in what Paul describes in Romans 1, is ANAL*SEX*.

How can we be sure?
Because the Old Testament has no law against female/female sexual intimacy; And the only prohibition on male/male intimacy is in the case of man laying with mankind AS HE LIES WITH a woman (Anal Penetration). (Leviticus 18:22)


See: Fundamentalists don't want to admit that Romans chapter 1 is a scathing expose' about ANAL*SEX* because 'self-righteous' men want to be able to give it to their female partners up the poop-chute without having to worry about pregnancy (although it has been suggested by some that this very act is what spawns fundamentalists).
Who are the "abominations" now? Eh?

By the time you've been through this site & visited some others, we hope that your thinking will be so different that you'll have genuine peace of mind & know that the loud booming voices from the religio/political left & right are those of blind leaders - leading the blind.  It's also hoped that you'll become involved with
spreading the truth!  This can literally save lives, & build real self-esteem. 

2nd Proof:

It's also interesting to note that Hebrew tradition strongly considered human excrement as "unclean" (grievously sinful to come into contact with).  It literally is the same word as translated "abomination".  A fascinating look into this matter can be found in the book of Ezekiel where God was instructing the prophet on how to conduct his life in the open as a testimony AGAINST Israel's rebelliousness.  This is what the text says (& I will use color to highlight passages germane to my point):

Eze 4:12 Use dried human waste to start a fire, then bake the bread on the coals where everyone can watch you.

Eze 4:13 When I scatter the people of Israel among the nations, they will also have to eat food that is unclean, just as you must do.

Eze 4:14 I said, "LORD God, please don't make me do that! Never in my life have I eaten food that would make me unacceptable to you. I've never eaten anything that died a natural death or was killed by a wild animal or that you said was unclean."

Eze 4:15 The LORD replied, "Instead of human waste, I will let you bake your bread on a fire made from cow manure.

There is a massive lesson here.  First, Ezekiel was extremely distressed because as his mission as a prophet, he had been instructed by God to use dried human waste as a fire source to prepare his food over.  He objected & God respected that objection by letting him use cow manure instead.  (Yes, that is a fuel source in many parts of the world). 

From the text - we can conclude the following:

  • Since God does not command to sin (Jam 1:13), the conclusion is that the FIRE would have purified the human dung.  Amazingly ... today we know fire will sterilize - killing all microorganisms - in addition to snapping the very molecules to constitute the waste by the process of super-oxidation .  Ezekiel did not know this - hence his objection.  Because of his weak conscience on the matter, God made a provision for a substitute (which parallels what Saul/Paul taught about weak consciences. See I Cor 8:7 ).  Seamless continuity.
  • Glaringly obvious however is the general belief that human waste was viewed with extreme contempt.

So then:

  • Anal sex (Male/Female or Male/Male) was undoubtedly viewed as an abominable practice (as it involves direct contact with human feces).
  • This belief is in harmony with Romans 1, & the sections of the Law of Moses that condemn men laying with mankind AS HE LIES with a woman.  (Men don't penetrate men & women have appropriate physiology so as to not require contact with that which is the 'abomination').   
Those wishing to partake in anal-acts may be able to justify their actions if they first light a fire inside the arse of the recipient; -- & then appeal to Ezekiel 4.

  

Men & Men? The Prohibition is what...actually?

According to the Torah, the following commandment was given to Moses, by God.  Violating it brings about a death penalty (under Moses' law).  In this respect, the commandment is similar to the very first given in Genesis.  According to the Scripture, God gives law intending for life (I.E: for the same reason we command children not to play in traffic).  Because of the nature of this commandment, we need to bind the reading of it very closely with the actual words, & within the greater context of the other Laws of God.  Many Christian "scholars" [sic] do not follow those very important principles in this subject area.  Why?  Bad company corrupts good character; -- Too much time with the snake!

"And a man who lies with a mankind as one lies with a woman, both of them have done a detestable thing, dying they shall die; their blood on them." - Lev 20:13

Does the act shown in the frame to the right violate the above commandment? 

N0!
WHY N0T?

The Law of Moses describes exactly "how" man can "lie" with a woman.  Yes, "sex" with women has a legally recognized specific form under Moses' law.  In the Law of Moses, the only lawful way "sex" was recognized with a woman was penetrative - vaginal It was evidence of that very thing that was checked for when a marriage was arranged & consummated under Moses Law.  The very fact that the Law forbids intercourse during a woman's menstrual cycle confirms this (Lev 20:18).  After all, if lawful sexual relations could be done apart from penetrative vaginal sex, then the prohibition on sex during menstruation is moot!  Under Moses law, sex with women was limited to penetration in the 'proper' hole.  This understanding becomes an anchor used to define the exact prohibition in Leviticus 20:13 above.  The phrase "as he lies with a woman" means "penetrative"; And since men have no "front hole" to 'penetrate', then only one other "hole" in the pubic region remains (for those bent on penetration).  Moses law simply makes it clear that "You don't do that thing!" & note from the 2nd proof above: Contact with human feces was considered an "abomination".  The text is in agreement with itself - as it must be!  God is not the author of confusion.  What was considered "sex' under Moses Law was not the slithering-love free-form of the Karma-Sutra!  So part of the problem in interpreting the Scripture happens when the interpreter uses his own "Karma-Sutra" standards (forming unjust measures) of behavior to misjudge what the phrase "as he lies with a woman" literally means under Moses' LawThey err not knowing the Scriptures! The commandment forbids a man from using a man's anatomy as a proxy for a woman's.  And by doing so it bans the single most dangerous fetish-act that we know of: AnalSex. And that is ALL that if forbids (Inclusio unius est exclusio alterius). The commandment at issue does NOT OUTLAW same gender intimacy (only the specific act of AnalSex).

Just as God had said in Genesis that they could not eat of the one tree, - but, that single commandment was lawlessly expanded to "neither shall ye touch it"; -- Likewise has a commandment been issued forbidding men "lying with mankind as one lies with a woman", -- likewise, been lawlessly expanded to "not touch"!  

It is a CAPITAL CRIME under Moses law to falsely accuse another person/s of a capital crime (Dt. 19:16-19)!  Read that until it sinks in.

So then, the Law in Lev 20:13 is specifically forbidding anal penetration -- the same form that male/male rape takes!  
Why this prohibition?  Several reasons as covered, but also likely is the same reason you don't let a child play in an open sewer.  Paul wrote: "Flee fornication. Every sin which a man may practice is without the body, but he that commits fornication sins against his own body." - I Cor 6.  OBVIOUS: Anal sex is a major vector for disease (STD's like AIDS).  It's not very p
leasurable for the recipient; & the mechanics of the act cause other problems -- well documented.  To quote a man who loves men, but is not into anal sex: "Anyone who thinks sticking you penis into a hole full of bacteria & shit constitutes 'sex', - probably keeps their head up there too!"


Butt, doesn't "gay sex", mean "anal"?

"And the commandment, which was for life, was found, as to me, itself to be unto death: for sin, getting a point of attack by the commandment, deceived me, and by it slew me." - Paul.  Or in other words: "And I made the discovery that the law whose purpose was to defend life - had become a cause of death: For I was tricked and put to death by sin, which found an opportunity to deceive by misrepresenting the law's intent."

The fact is that many, many men who have had relationships with other men involving physical intimacy (eros) have never desired nor participated in anal penetrationMost are initially repulsed by the idea!  Such repulsion is a proper feeling.  "Homo" "sex" does N0T equal "anal sex" by default, -- but society has swallowed a lie (pushed heavily by the gay-community itself) that asserts the two are synonymous.  Does the image below look like anal sex is part "Male/Male intimacy" in this context?  No!  What the picture shows is called "FR0T" - in which 2 guys make full body contact, & enjoy each other slow-cudl'n & luvn.  It's male-to-male, completely equal & contrary to common teaching, is NOT forbidden by the Scriptures!  Consider: The Scripture says that David loved Jonathan as he LOVED HIMSELF.  In stark contrast -Anal sex is an extremely dangerous behavior; - A behavior that many self-professed "Hetero"sexual couples engage in as well as "gAys".  It's bad judgment to have anything to do with it no matter what a person's "orientation" supposedly is.   Ironically, regardless of how dangerous the act of ass-sex is, - there are people who will staunchly defend their "right" to partake in it.  That shouldn't be surprising ... after all, it was men who fukk'd sheep who were responsible for the spread of syphilis into human populations in the first place; --& anyone who wants to look can find groups of people who will staunchly defend their "right" to fuck all sorts of animal species.  Interestingly, but not surprisingly, these same people seem to insist that spreading their death-disease buffet into the rest of humanity is their "right" as well.  You see, evil/undiscerning people just don't care who they hurt as long as they get what they want.  What G0YS promote is mutual affection, safety & considering the other person first.  Anal sex, by the very nature of what it consists of, -- is something that G0YS absolutely do not engage in, nor do we have any innate compulsion to (the rejection of which is what starkly defines us as G0YS)! 


It's primarily 3 main groups who promote the lie that "gay sex = anal".  These are: 

  • The religious right is a major spreader of the gangrenous teaching that "gay sex =anal sex"; Look at the signs in the picture to the right. The sign on the far right that reads: "FAG = ANAL SEX = |DEATH-SYMBOL|" summarizes their message that all men who luv men are into "anal-sex".  (G0YS are pleased to expose them as the liars they are.)

  • Then we have the gay-media & porn industry on the 'liberal left' (with their "anything goes" selfishness, -- unchecked by any healthy aversions);

  • Finally the "health" establishments backed by government/s who promote the so-called concept of "safe-sex" with slogans like "Use a condom EVERY time".  (See how the unspoken lie is built into the slogan.  After all: If you need a condom every time, there must be penetration every time, - which implies that gay-sex = anal).  

Just as Eve was deceived that simply touching was a forbidden act (subject to death) , so are those who believe the lie that male/male intimacy "NAWGAH" (touching) is what was forbidden by the Scripture; --  Or worse, - that male/male intimacy must always be "anal penetration" .  It's a deadly buffet of lies spread by those who claim to be the "experts" of everything social ("Professing themselves wise, they became as fools..."! - Paul)  Who do you suppose is ultimately behind these murderous messages? 

The devastation of prejudice (prejudgment based on bad information), disease & death is the result of an accomplished liar!  See, sexual affection is a natural appetite.  In the garden of humanity (fleshed & dressed by God), the Serpent still insists that God has said that same-sex attracted people cannot eat from ANY of the trees.  The fact is, that we are commanded not to eat from a 'tree' (used figuratively) that brings harm.  See, the entire law is summed up in a couple of commandments:
1) Love God. 
2) Love people.  Love works no ill toward its neighbor -- therefore it fulfills the law (Gal 5:14)! 

Anal sex (not homo-sex) is forbidden under Moses' law because it has a tremendous affinity to cause harm in so many ways.  Would you let a child play in a septic tank? See: It's not 'God being controlling for the sake of control'!  God forbade certain acts (I.E: anal sex) because such can be absolutely devastating -- often deadly.    However, other forms of loving expression that are not forbidden, - are not forbidden (Inclusio unius est exclusio alterius ;-
Men who luv men, but abstain from anal-sex have as their testimony: One of the lowest rates of sexually transmitted diseases among any demographic.  Lesbians are probably the only group that is lower in STD incidences (And you'll notice the Law of Moses says NOTHING forbidding female/female intimacy, - despite how rabidly fundamentalism assails it)!  Some may argue that Paul forbids it in Romans 1.  That would be a neat trick: The man who instructed "not to go beyond what was written" (I Cor 4), suddenly going beyond what was written?!  Not at all!  In Romans 1, Paul describes acts that were part of pagan idolatry practices often done in clear public forum (how else would he have known of them to describe so fully)!  In describing acts of both men & woman, he uses the term "likewise" (v.27 or "in the same way").  Since the Law of Moses does not mention female/female sexual intimacy, Paul's use of the term "likewise" CANNOT be a blanket condemnation on acts that are called "homosexual" by today's standards; -- because if it was, he would be contradicting a basic principle of law of NOT going beyond what is written in the statute.  Paul is saying that the acts that are worthy of death are both forbidden under the Law of Moses (laws which we can look up).  So, what act/s would "likewise" apply to in Paul's exposť?  It is writtten: "You must not bring the earnings of a female prostitute or of a male prostitute into the house of the LORD your God to pay any vow, because the LORD your God detests them both." - Dt 23:18Now, if you look carefully at the verse allegedly condemning what many incorrectly label as "homosexuality", from Leviticus 20:13, -- it now becomes obvious that this is probably about a form of male prostitution in which men take on a passive, feminine role: "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.".  It's not a blanket prohibition of male/male intimacy:  It's about practices that sexually emasculated the man (via anal penetration)!   In CONTEXT, Paul's use of the terminology "women put aside the natural use" does not mean lesbianism (as there is no Law in Moses against that)!  Paul is talking about women who were having anal sex with men! The meaning is made clear in the next verse where Paul discusses men who burned their lust toward other men RECEIVING IN THEMSELVES THE PENALTY (How did it [the death-penalty / disease] get IN them)!  If it was Lesbianism Paul was critiquing, his description, coupled with the term "in the same manner", would make no sense. However, a woman who puts ASSide the "natural use" & has Anal-sex with a man, - does indeed "RECEIVE WITHIN" (get it?)!  In this light, it becomes painfully obvious that Paul's expose' on anal-sex in Romans 1, - has been used for centuries now to baselessly condemn a group of people - whom it was never intended to! 
AGAIN: Paul's condemnation is about the perverse practice of anal sex!  Romans 2:1 right back at ya religious reicht! 
GOD saw that coming! The misrepresentation of Paul's writing by those who condemn mere same sex affection is precisely what Peter wrote would happen! Check this out: "His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction." - Peter discussing Paul's writing/s, & those who distort them.  How does this "destruction" happen?   That's easy to see: When the act which is often deadly (anal sex) is not identified for what it is, - but instead, ANOTHER act (same-sex intimacy) is named as the "abomination", - a deadly dynamic is set up on several levels:

  • God's character becomes marred -- as He is portrayed as an arbitrary rule maker, unable to acknowledge the needs & affections of people; -- but just on a power trip as "God".  (This is precisely what the Serpent proposed in Eden by suggesting that God had forbidden eating from ALL of the trees.)

  • By changing the command, the forbidden act is not seen for the deadly peril it is.  So at this point, you'll hear about self-pronounced "holy-straight" couples engaging in anal sex (the 'abomination'), & ironically, pointing the finger of judgment at same-gender couples & calling them 'abominations' (for simply being same gender attracted).  An evil irony, yes? God is not mocked. The "straight judgemental arse-fuckers" will end up in the very place they so callously threatened the same-sex couple with! 

  • Men who love men are told by so-called "Christians" that God rejects all same-sex intimacy & that they must 'change' to be accepted.  These self-righteous judges with a flawed view of holiness effectively shut up the kingdom of God in men's faces -- just as Jesus said the religious hypocrites of his day did.  So, feeling rejected by God for who they pair-bond with, the victims of that misinformation often (in an attempt to deal with horrible depression about being allegedly rejected by God) indulge in all sorts of revelry (after all ... if you're damned for just existing, then why follow any code of ethics?).  Self righteous bigots then seize on observing those shattered lives to use as "evidence" against same-sex "lifestyles" -- once again missing the point that it isn't same-sex attractions that cause the misery, but violating Godly principles (having analsex for example).  Jesus observed that it was the offspring of the Devil who so religiously promoted lies that destroyed people.  So next time you see Phelps, Falzarano, Hinn, Falwell, Robertson, Kennedy, D'Aandrea & other "evangelists" playing the "anti-same-sex card", perhaps you'll understand who they really speak for!  Deadly "snake-oil", isn't it...   

  • Because the forbidden act (anal sex) is not specifically spoken against by these bigots, but lumped together with something not forbidden (same gender intimacy) by their unjustified prejudice; -concepts simultaneously end up being -both added & subtracted from the word of God.  
    Here is the result: "I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book." -  REV 22:18-19   

Paul explains in the chapter directly after the one these unstable men use to lawlessly judge "g0ys" with for merely loving their own gender:  "You, therefore, have no excuse, you who pass judgment on someone else, for at whatever point you judge the other, you are condemning yourself, because you who pass judgment do the same things!" - Rom 2:1 (Hypocrites in action: "ExGay" Liars exposed!) Paul continues ..."Now we know that God's judgment against those who do such things is based on truth.  So when you, a mere man, pass judgment on them and yet do the same things (Ex-gays: "Such as a man thinks in his heart so is he"!), do you think you will escape God's judgment?  Or do you show contempt for the riches of his kindness, tolerance and patience, not realizing that God's kindness leads you toward repentance?  But because of your stubbornness and your unrepentant heart, you are storing up wrath against yourself for the day of God's wrath, when his righteous judgment will be revealed." - Paul's message to those who condemningly judge the ones he describes in Romans I because there were those in the church doing the same sort of things!  That message is sooo deep & on several levels.   Paul's writing was one that encouraged love, respect & stopping the endless rejecting-judgmentally of the outsiders!  (I don't know where modern fundamentalism thinks God is going to come up with 144,000 men who are undefiled with women [Rev 14], but lots of G0YS have a good idea ;-)      
Oh, one last point.  Paul says that those who judge others condemn themselves because they do the same things.  I had one legalist ask me how that could be true if he didn't ever have sexual activity with another guy.  My answer devastated him.  Paul wrote: "There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.." - Gal 3:28  Paul taught that in Christ, there is no MALE & FEMALE; -- therefore that fundamentalist & his wife are the "same type of genderless spirit being" in Christ.  Since this legalist's condemnation was on same-gender sexual activity, & Paul teaches that he & his wife are the same (HOMO) in Christ; - Then his own standard of judgment against people of (HOMO)-gender having sexual relations, -- turned against him!  The measure he was using came right back to judge him!
This concept of "same-sex" also applies to self-stimulation (masturbation), since the one giving the 'pleasure' is the same gender as the one 'receiving' it  (Can anyone at this juncture point out a righteous fundamentalist)!  It is written: "By the law will no flesh be justified!"  So, we G0YS appeal to common-sense, -- not to use our freedom as a license (- never to hurt other people); -- But, as a foundation for living life as men free to express deep & physical affection to other men - while greatly respecting the image they were made in. "Love works no ill toward his neighbor, therefore: Love is the fulfilling of the Law!" -
Scripture
