This website resulted from me wondering if homosexuality is sinful. At the same time this question was swirling through my mind, my Bible study teacher said something that really stuck with me. I was attending an Evangelical church for Sunday school and service, but I had brought a Catholic Bible to Sunday school (I was raised Catholic). Sometimes when I read verses aloud from my Bible during Bible study, my Sunday school teacher would look at me like I had just read something outrageous. When he examined my Bible, he noticed that I was reading verses from a Catholic Bible and not a Protestant version of the Bible. One day, he said something that really struck me: Bible translators translate the Bible based on what they think it should say, in accordance with their beliefs! They actually "tweak" passages or "clarify" passages to fit into their religious beliefs. This may sound obvious to some people, but I was shocked, as I was always taught that the Bible is the inerrant word of God written down by man. This explains why there are so many Bible translations!

Thus, I decided to research the issue of the sinfulness of homosexuality, and I discovered two things:

1. Many websites cover the topic, but very few authors use research to back up their claims, and those who do sometimes "tweak" the research to fit their claims.

2. All websites that address this issue are written in a biased manner. No website exists which takes a fair look at the issue from both perspectives.

Based on the fact that many websites are misleading and that Bible translations might be unreliable, I decided to research the issue by examining the most original sources available – the actual ancient Hebrew and Greek languages in which the Bible was written. So, I dove into the topic head-first, and this website was born.

This website is my attempt to look at the "homosexuality as sin versus homosexuality as not a sin" issue from both sides. I address both sides of the argument in the most unbiased way possible, and I use history and original Hebrew and Greek language to support or refute the claims. Since I examine the homosexuality issue from both viewpoints, I must present arguments with which I don't agree! Some of them actually caused me mental anguish. Basically, what I'm trying to say is that this website does not necessarily reflect the views of its webmaster.

As you browse through this website, you might notice two things:

1. My research is transparent, meaning that I do not try to hide anything or mischaracterize anything. In fact, I often provide direct linksLet's hope that the links never change. to my research when possible so that you can double-check its accuracy.

2. Although I argue general ideas and concepts that are found on many websites addressing this issue, I also present some novel (as far as I know) concepts.

My intent is to educate and promote mutual understanding and, if that's not possible, then to, at the very least, provide a forum for discussion. I would love to hear what you think about the website, and, if I missed a major concept, inaccurately portrayed an argument, or simply misspelled a word (unfortunately, it could happen), please feel free to E-mail Me. If you would like to e-mail me, but you are unable to do so because Outlook is not setup or you do not have Outlook, please post a message for me on the Message Board.

Oh, and if you are wondering if I'm homosexual (because you may be), I am not. I am 100% heterosexual. I'm also a Christian, and red is my favorite color. Please fill out the survey so that I may know a little bit about you and your ideas. The survey will only be used for scientific purposes.
