A Bible Journey, 108: The Laws Of Physical Morality
"Ye shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation"
The LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ (see The Real Jesus: The Word Of The LORD God and A Bible Journey, 56: The Sacred Name) declared to the humanity that He created (see Creation Day 6: Animals And Mankind and Creation Day 7: The Week And The Christian Sabbath) His Laws of morality that are based upon physical and psychological health (see the Fact Finder question below).
In the comprehensive list of perversions ("abominations"), no single one of them is any more evil than any other e.g. adultery is just as wicked as sodomy (see also What Does Wicked Mean?). "For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people."
"18:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 18:2 Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, I am the LORD your God. 18:3 After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do: and after the doings of the land of Canaan, whither I bring you, shall ye not do: neither shall ye walk in their ordinances. 18:4 Ye shall do my judgments, and keep mine ordinances, to walk therein: I am the LORD your God. 18:5 Ye shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments: which if a man do, he shall live in them: I am the LORD.
