Why do people twist God's word?

In Exodus 20:13 it says, " You shall not murder." People understand that and know you shouldn't kill someone. Which also, by the way, hating someone is the same thing as murdering them....that's another story.

Then in Leviticus 18:22 it says, "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. People say well, God didn't mean it to say don't be gay.

How can we take his words of the first mentioned plainly and then try to twist the latter to appease people's sinfulness?

Can someone please tell me?

* I would appreciate thoughtful answers that are not immature and tasteless.|||People today twist God's word to suit their own meaning. In our society today, man wants to please man - NOT God and so, mankind is more and more accepting and tolerant of sin over God's law. People want the twist the meaning of the bible so that sin and wickedness is excused such as homosexuality, lying, stealing, murder, etc. Man can't accept what God says and what God is against, so because man accepts and tolerates false religions, wickedness/sin, etc., so that is why they twist and distort the meaning of the bible: to suit their own meaning, to make it appear as though God doesn't 'hate' anyone and that God accepts sin, which He does NOT.

It CLEARLY states in the bible that God hates sin and those who take pleasure in it and choose following the world over Him and His law. It also states the consequences to those who defy His law and choose to follow the world.

Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Rom 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them.

Rom 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

Rom 1:23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves:

Rom 1:25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

Rom 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

Rom 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

1Ti 1:9 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,

1Ti 1:10 For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

Jud 1:8 Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

Psa 5:5 The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.

Psa 5:6 Thou shalt destroy them that speak leasing: the LORD will abhor the bloody and deceitful man

Pro 19:9 A false witness shall not be unpunished, and he that speaketh lies shall perish.

Pro 21:28 A false witness shall perish: but the man that heareth speaketh constantly.

Eph 4:17 This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,

Eph 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

Eph 4:19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.

Eph 4:20 But ye have not so learned Christ;

Eph 4:21 If so be that ye have heard him, and have been taught by him, as the truth is in Jesus:

Eph 4:22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;

1Ti 6:3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness;

1Ti 6:4 He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings.

1Ti 6:5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.

2Ti 4:2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;

2Ti 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

2Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.

2Jn 1:10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him Godspeed:

2Pe 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.|||1. it's only God's alleged word. There is no evidence that's actually the case; it's far more likely that these are just bronze-age restrictions against sex that doesn't increase the tribe size.

2. Christians love saying the old testament doesn't apply when shown, for example, laws against eating shellfish.

3. If your god really does exist, it's his own fault for not inspiring a clearer book. I mean, slavery was in accordance with the bible until it fell out of favor; now suddenly it's against the bible.

4. If he didn't want the bible to be translated, he should have found a way to sabotage that construction project without creating thousands of languages the bible would need imperfect translating to.|||First, It was written by men.

Second, If we as human beings need a book to tell us not to murder each other, we are in serious trouble

Third, the main problem with the bible is it's ambiguity. There are so many translations and interpretations.

Fourth, the bible also says love one another, treat your neighbor as you would like to be treated, be a good samaritan, judge not and a lot of other things that are not practiced very often.

Don't use a book to find your morals, look inside yourself. What do YOU think is right.|||Everything in the history of mankind has included a "truth" from the past with a twist to match the present.

The OT was the book Jesus followed, but it didn't work for his followers, so they created the NT. When they wrote this book, they took the parts of the OT and superimposed in onto their current beliefs.

Beliefs are beliefs as long as you believe in them. There is no theory/philosophy/religion that has stood the test of time without being changed in some way by the current generation.

Change is the only thing that we are destined to do as humans....what is death but a change from life?|||There is a group of gays that get people's accounts cancelled. They would love it if Christians got in the minority so they can make it look like there are sssooooo many gay people in here that the rest of Christians would just leave. They used to run through putting thumbs down on Christian answers. At first I thought it was teens, now I realize it is gay people.|||They twist the word of God, Because they simply want to continue in their sinful ways and they want to believe by twisting the meaning of the Word, that it makes it okay. Well the reality of that is simply not true, and they are not fooling anyone especially God! They are setting themselves up for an eternity of Hell. Jesus calls these Christians Luke Warm, and the Bible does teach that all Luke Warm Christians will have their place in the Lake of Fire.|||What exactly is God's word. You have many Christians who don't even believe the bible is translated correctly or even his word (the Mormons) and you have no proof that the authors of each book are actually the real authors of each book. Plus how many books were actually kept out of the bible by the powers that be? All of a sudden God's word doesn't look so good, ALSO HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT THE KORAN ISN'T GOD'S WORD------get off your high horse and start praying, peace|||It is nothing new, people have been doing that since the beginning of time- remember Adam and Eve? Eve took the apple from Satan, gave it to Adam. Satan deceived Eve into thinking that God was wrong- "that she would not die"even though God said she would- then Eve ate the apple, blamed Satan, and then gave the apple to Adam and he blamed his wife. We as people were created in the image of God, however as humans we have chosen to make God in our own image- and excuse Sin- however God doesn't and we have to remember that.|||Can I ask you to explain why anyone would think that whatever the words were at the time of the writing are still unadulterated today?

It is a REAL BIG leap of faith to assume that whatever the original words were have not been changed somewhat.|||If you are going to take words from the bible as "God's Words" then you have to do some twisting just for there to be a minimum amount of consistency.|||Yeah, and then there are these that try to weasel out of not eating shellfish and pork or wearing multi-fabric clothes! Why, the very nerve of it all! Sinners, all of them.|||First prove that those words are of a god and not of a man.

Second, if you believe in them then don't murder and don't "lie with a man". That doesn't mean everyone else must do the same, however.|||Christianity was founded through twisting Judaism. Consider it poetic justice that the same is now being done to you.|||because they want to try and justify their actions and get what they want.... still trying to figure out how the catholic church convinced everyone it was a sin to read....|||God is the only one with the right to judge. i dont have that right and i choose not to pretend i do|||Somebody get this guy a dictionary.|||I don't know but everytime I point that out to Christians they report me or give me thumbs downs.|||I didn't see it yet. Christians infused fake crap with the Pagan religion too.|||I will pray for all who have answered your question.......that they will study the Bible with an open heart and with prayer to understand what is written in Gods word.......God bless you all.........|||Why? To excuse their sin.

They'll answer for it at the end though.|||to be quite honest God's word has been twisted since the beginning of time because it's been left open to interpretation and many people only see what they want to see or hear what they want to hear to suit their own needs.

Besides that you're talking about the OLD testament....when the NEW testament came out it made the old one null and void.

Are you afraid of people who are gay? Do you think that they shouldn't be? That they shouldn't be allowed the same rights and freedoms that all of humanity is entitled to? Is it humanity's duty to judge? Have you noticed the many denominations that exist within Christianity? Have you noticed the varying opinions there are? Have you witnessed the separation among humanity it's created?

There is only one way to live: Live with Compassion %26amp; Patient Acceptance.|||I don't know why people twist the words around, and why any one will want to add, or take away from the, bible, i will be to scared to do that, but i won't judge my brothers and sisters in Christ, because i'am a sinner to, i may not live that, kind of life style, but to God a sin is a sin, so we all sin, and come short of his glory, all mankind, was born and conceive in sin, i love every one, we all need to learn how to love, and be kind, and merciful, and stop fighting. Peace out.|||Noone has ever twisted Gods words....... but plenty of people have plumb made them up. Then other people have twisted the words of the people that pretended to be saying/writing Gods words.

Considering the original sources are liars I think it is acceptable to twist if for your benefit......

The sad thing is that you actually think it is Gods words. I mean you really think that God wrote a book...... and you don't even see how insane that is. God.... the creator of the universe..... wrote a book...... a thousand page zinger. In a specific language, on paper, with a primitive writing utensil. I would think that he would try to write it somewhere more god-like...... like the stars, or on a mountain..... or maybe just have a constant cloud scroller of the bible or maybe even just put it on the skin of all humans....... But no, the omnipotent man wrote a book on paper with a pencil. Wow! I wish that you could see how absolutely nuts that is for just a minute..... unfortunately the crazy can never see their own craziness. If they could they wouldn't be crazy I suppose. Its almost charming in its lunacy......almost.|||why do people twist God's word? Well, why do people remove God's word? Protestants have actually removed part of their Bibles! Yikes! It states In Deuteronomy 4:2 not to add to or remove Bible scripture from the Bible!!! (shouldn't people be concerned about this???! why don't more people know about this? Shouldn't you be concerned with the widespread immorality around the US? in general? greed, lust, fornication, gluttony, pride... abundance of sin... why pick just one?)

Why do people twist God's word? What about people who have heterosexual sex out of wedlock? so called Christians that do that too.


PS. You think people twist God's word to say it is "OK" to be gay? I Corinthians 6:9...Do not be deceived; neither the immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor sexual perverts [malakoi and arsenokoitai], 10 nor thieves..., will inherit the kingdom of God.

I do agree with you, I really do. But to some people, it depends on the interpretation. From what I have heard, there were words that meant "homosexual" directly translated, and the Bible translators seemed to CHOOSE a much broader term to encompass all immoral deeds. (not excluding nor including homosexuality specifically)

If you scroll down this one YA link below, I find this Rev. Avenge Sevenfold has an interesting comment!
