HOMOSEXUALITY IS UNDER THE LAW AND NOT UNDER GRACE SO WHO SAYS IT IS A SIN 

The Civil Writer Magazine

Judaism regards the violation of any of the 613 commandments as a sin. Judaism teaches that to sin is a part of life, since there is no perfect man and everyone has an inclination to do evil "from his youth". Sin has many classifications and degrees. For the Jew those 613 sins are published in the Mosaic Laws and commandments. For the gentiles there are personal sins that are identified in the heart and not on paper. Personal sins means what is a sin to me is not a sin to you.

What are considered sins to Jews on paper is not necessarily sins of gentiles. It is a sin on paper for a Jewish man to sleep with a menstruating wife but that is not a sin of the gentile. Homosexuality is a sin on paper for the Jews, but only a sin of the heart for the gentiles if it's a conviction. Certain foods Jews cannot eat being they are a sin, notably pork and shellfish, are forbidden; meat and dairy may not be combined and meat must be ritually slaughtered and salted to remove all traces of blood. Those are not gentile sins but they can be if they are your convictions by the heart.

The gentile people have the ability to stop the inclinations to sin because of the heart and not from something written on paper in the Old Testament because for the Christian Jesus didn't leave any "thou shalt nots" on paper. Paul's great declaration of Romans 6:14: "Sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law, but under grace." Romans 4 15 Because the law worketh wrath: for where no law is, there is no transgression. Where is the law against homosexuality in the New Testament?
