Lev 20:13 If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.
Lev 20:14 If a man takes a woman and her mother also, it is depravity; he and they shall be burned with fire, that there may be no depravity among you.
Lev 20:15 If a man lies with an animal, he shall surely be put to death, and you shall kill the animal.
I know you have all read this but it is very interesting in light of the SSM debate. Have you noticed that most mainstream Christian leaders connect SSM to polygyny? (ex: Dr. Dobson) The Bible clearly connects Homosexuality with Bestiality.
However look at the three verses above. Homosexuals are dealt with in the first verse and bestiality in the last, but there in verse 14 is a restriction on polygamy. You cannot take a wife and her mother. If the worlds standard (monogamy only) were true, should not this say, "If a man takes a woman and another woman…" No, that clearly is not the case. This is a restriction of a wife and her mother, and else where is a restriction about taking a sister to vex her. (Which also sheds light on that verse)
Now I know you guys all know this stuff, but it seems to me that these verses sandwiched the way they are provide a unique opportunity to share with other Christians…
Any thoughts? Have you ever used these scriptures to defend your position? Does it make sense to use it?
