Dear friends:

Homophobia is the product of a grave misinterpretation of Paul’s letter to the Romans (1:27). That mistake cannot be recognized from the Judaic-Christian worldview. To understand this mistake, Romans 1:27 must be understood in Paul’s worldview; i.e. that of a Gnostic Christian.

Please consider reading “Does the Bible Condemn Homosexuality?” below, which comes from the Solving Biblical Mysteries section of my book, “The Practical Side of Heaven.” I believe reading this can open the door to the correct interpretation of Romans 1:27, which, in turn, eliminates the “cause” of homophobia.

Your thoughts on this will be greatly appreciated.

Does the Bible condemn homosexuality?
The condemnation of homosexuality is not authentic to early Christianity for two reasons.

GC interpretation of Ephesians 2?

From “The Practical Side of Heaven” by William C. Kiefert
“Eph 2:10: Live the good life as from the beginning He [God] has meant us to live it.”

I was curious about Gnostic Christianity but when I looked on your web site you made the quote above and I was wondering how you managed to interpret that. Do you have a different bible?

From King James Bible via Blue Letter Bible
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”

Would like to hear more. ~ Emmanuella Grace, London
