The definition of faith is, as Dictionary.com states; Faith is, "belief that is not based on proof."
If I knew what he was and saw him it would no longer be faith, right?

I think he is testing us.. There isn't any wrong doing in heaven.

However, if you look at that passage in context, you will find that it is speaking of the "end times" as in right before Jesus come back and all.

You must note that this was said before Jesus came, since then a god amount of things changed. After that it is said no where that all homosexuals should be killed.

I will never let you fall
I'll stand up with you forever
I'll be there for you through it all
Even if saving you sends me to heaven
