Jesus talked about gay and lesbian believers in Luke 17:34-35.
We have seen in the well-known passage in Leviticus that the “two men in one bed” were gay.
The phrase, the one shall be taken, and the other shall be left, refers to what is called by some, “The Great Separation,” and by others, “The Rapture.” No matter what you call it, Jesus said that some people are acceptable to God, and others are not. It seems safe to assume that those who are acceptable are, in some sense, believers.
The gay couple is in one bed. The text does not specify what they are doing. We do know that “laying with a man as with a woman” is forbidden.
The lesbian couple is grinding together. They are in the middle of love-making. From this we know that non-celibate lesbians are not automatically disinherited from the kingdom of God.
How we label the criteria of acceptability is not important. What is important is that non-celibate gays and lesbians are not automatically disqualified from entering into the presence of God.
