People who choose to ignore God’s word, minimize it, or change it into something more palatable are only fooling themselves. God does NOT hate homosexuals, but He does hate the lifestyle. He made rules for us to follow for our own good (don’t we as parents make rules for our children that keep them from harm?) God also wants His children to be pure and holy, not we will achieve that in this life, but we are supposed to draw as close to Him as we can. We can lie to ourselves all we want to. We can come up with new “bibles” to water it down, but it doesn’t change who God is or what His word really says. There are consequences for every decision we make. But we choose. We are all born sinners. We choose which spirit will rule over us.
We are all in a spiritual battle, whether we know it or not. Ephesians 6:10ff lists our spiritual armor and tells us how to use it. Satan wants to (and has) twist God’s word, cast doubt on it, just as he did in the Garden of Eden. He wants people to love themselves and their own agenda more than they love God. Every time we reject God and His TRUE word (the KJV Bible), it’s like spitting in the face of Jesus and rejecting His sacrifice for us. If there was another way to get to God then He went through all of that torture for nothing. His love for us kept Him on the cross until the disciples took Him down. God offers eternal life with Him, forgiveness, an abundant life (not necessarily in riches), peace, joy, happiness, love, grace, mercy, kindness, goodness. BUT HE LEAVES THE CHOICE TO US. He didn’t want to force us to love Him. If He did then that love would be meaningless.
