Anyone know the reasons Allah and his Prophet gave for the deviation and the evil act in which the people of Prophet Lut . I know what crime they did commit, but how did Allah explain it in the Quran and Prophet through hadith.
The question below is what a athiest asked me and im trying to find a answer for him. Obviously, even the perfect answer is not enough for some but a answer i do wnat to give in light of Quran and Hadith.
Anyone I have to ask you about the word sin in this explanation.
You know I am not a theist, but I am always intrigued by how theists can appear to accept contradictions in their beliefs.
So a man or woman is made with natural inclinations to be attracted to the same sex. Am I right to assume that you believe that God has made that person in the full knowledge of how they would think, believe and want to behave?
God then causes a number of books to be made that can appear to imply that the nature he has imbued his creations with is a sin.
He doesn't tell everyone this however. The ancient Greeks lived and died without this revelation being made known to them. Some of the most vigorous proponents of these natural inclinations provided us with the philosophical and theosophical systems we have based our socieities and religions on.
Why would God do this?
I would expect the answer "because he provides us with tests so that we can improve ourselves". You are of course welcome to make it, but you should know in advance that I think it is a very flimsy reason, so by extension you as an intelligent bloke probably know that too.
I find it hard to understand how such rational people as most on this site, can condemn non-heterosexuals because of the interpretation of a book written over a thousand years ago and based on the tribal rememberings of a stone age tribe.
End of question.
See, I want to explain through the Islamic argument and not how some Christians and Jews may answer this.
