Does ‘Earlier Texts’ Of Leviticus Contain Pro-Homosexual Verses. New York Times says it does.

New York Times Takes Aim At Bible, Says Book Of Leviticus Used To Contain Pro-Homosexual Verses In ‘Earlier Texts’
 
A quick word search for ‘moses’ shows us that his name appears 848 times in 748 verses, with hundreds of references proving beyond the shadow of any doubt that God used him to author the first 5 books of the Holy Bible.
There is no other group of people more apt to destroy your confidence in the Holy Bible, than that gaggle of textual critics known as bible scholars. They don’t believe that God has preserved His word, they don’t believe in its authority, and they have no compunctions about revising history to suit their agendas.
 
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Leviticus 18:22 (KJV)
 
Dr. Idan Dershowitz, a bible scholar over at the New York Times, has written an article to inform us that while the book of Leviticus may appear to codemn homosexuality, beastialty and incest, in its orginal form it was actually in favor of those things, especially homosexuality. Dr. Dershowitz offers no actual archaeological or literary evidence to support his claim, but just wants you to “take his word” for it because he is a “bible scholar” and so much smarter than you are.
 
FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES: No text has had a greater influence on attitudes toward gay people than the biblical book of Leviticus, which prohibits sex between men. Before Leviticus was composed, outright prohibitions against homosexual sex — whether between men or women — were practically unheard-of in the ancient world.
 
Chapter 18 of Leviticus contains a list of forbidden incestuous acts, followed by prohibitions against sex with a menstruating woman, bestiality and various other sexual acts. In Verse 22, we find its most famous injunction: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” (Leviticus 20:13 repeats this law, along with a punishment for those who violate it: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”)
 
Like many ancient texts, Leviticus was created gradually over a long period and includes the words of more than one writer. Many scholars believe that the section in which Leviticus 18 appears was added by a comparatively late editor, perhaps one who worked more than a century after the oldest material in the book was composed. An earlier edition of Leviticus, then, may have been silent on the matter of sex between men.
 
But I think a stronger claim is warranted. As I argue in an article published in the latest issue of the journal Hebrew Bible and Ancient Israel, there is good evidence that an earlier version of the laws in Leviticus 18 permitted sex between men. In addition to having the prohibition against same-sex relations added to it, the earlier text, I believe, was revised in an attempt to obscure any implication that same-sex relations had once been permissible.
 
“Be ye therefore very courageous to keep and to do all that is written in the book of the law of Moses, that ye turn not aside therefrom to the right hand or to the left;” Joshua 23:6 (KJV)
 
So, what is the truth, is Dr. Idan Dershowitz correct? The authorship of Leviticus by Moses is confirmed by Jesus Himself in Luke 5:14 and Matthew 8:4 in your King James Bible. Additionally, the apostle John confirms that Moses wrote Genesis in John 7:22. A quick word search for ‘moses’ shows us that his name appears 848 times in 748 verses, with hundreds of references proving beyond the shadow of any doubt that God used him to author the first 5 books of the Holy Bible.
 
So the idea of there being other authors of some non-existent version of Leviticus or any other of the books of the Pentateuch authored by Moses is laughably ridiculous.
 
There is a huge push taking place right now to LGBTitize the Holy Bible, and in order to do that all the verses that speak against their lifestyle and agenda must be either rewritten or removed altogether.
 
The LGBT group Human Rights Campaign (HRC) published a “guide” for LGBT people in evangelical Christian churches. The guide twisted the Bible, painted traditional Christianity as hateful, downplayed the crucial role of repentance in the Christian life, identified people with their sin, and pushed a radical acceptance of LGBT ideology on churches.

Instead of pushing back and standing for Biblical truth, a vast majority of churches are looking for ways to “find common ground” with the LGBT. Denominations like the Methodists, the Presbyterians and even some Southern Baptists have already fallen.
 
If you’re waiting for the ‘big end times revival’ promoted in charismatic circles today, don’t bother. Jesus says the last state of the Church before the rapture is apostasy, and apostasy it shall be. That’s the real message Dr. Idan Dershowitz puts forward in ‘The Secret History Of Leviticus’, whether he realizes it or not.
 
“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.” Revelation 3:14-18 (KJV)
The Bible did call it didn’t it? Listen to what the Bible says:
Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)
