Sexuality is a very sensitive subject. And no I am not referring to porn; however, that would be a good follow-up on this article; seeing as how porn and this subject go hand-in-hand. Perversion is the root of all great countries falling. Sodom, Gomorrah, Rome, Greece, Persia, and of course the United States of America is falling in this category as well. This perversion came after homosexuality starting running rampant in the streets of these country’s cities and towns.
First off let’s define sex (as run by a Google search: Define: sex):
(chiefly with reference to people) sexual activity, including specifically sexual intercourse.
“he enjoyed talking about sex”
either of the two main categories (male and female) into which humans and many other living things are divided on the basis of their reproductive functions.
“adults of both sexes”
Homosexuality is a sin. There is no doubt about that. Homosexuals and heterosexuals can all agree on that if they follow the Bible. And a sin is breaking the law of God. Most people think that the only place that the Bible talks about homosexuality is in Leviticus; whereas, it does make very good points. According to the book of Timothy:
“We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine.” 1 Timothy 1:9-1
So obviously we know that 1 Timothy is a New Testament book. We also know that because that is the biggest Liberal fallacy because their argument is always, “You follow the Laws of Leviticus. If you do that then you should also not eat pork, nor should you ever get divorced, and etcetera…” However, the New Testament is very clear in this manner and regard in several different places including, but not limited to Romans and Corinthians.
When we look in the Bible, the Bible is very clear about homosexuality. It starts just like the Bible starts in Genesis. God destroyed two whole cities because of immorality – mostly including sexual immorality, and yet still more because of homosexuality.
“The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. ‘My lords,’ he said, ‘please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.’
‘No,’ they answered, ‘we will spend the night in the square.’
But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, ‘Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.’
Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him and said, ‘No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.’”
– Genesis 19:1-8
Obviously here we have seen that homosexuality had run rampant in Sodom. There is a reason why anal sex is called sodomy… Think of it Sodom… There is a reason that there is a negative connotation with sodomy. Most states have laws on the books that make sodomy illegal; however, it is one of those laws that are never enforced because we do not allow government in our bedrooms.
“The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”
– Romans 1:18-32
Obviously, according to the Bible, homosexuality will incur God’s wrath. God has been in the equation the whole time. Sometimes God has been forgotten about, but that doesn’t mean that He wasn’t there. The truth of the matter is that homosexuality God hates. God hates all sexual immorality – including adultery, porn, unnatural sex acts – with animals and other people that are not your spouse. Finally sex with someone of the same sex is truly an abomination. God frowns upon unnatural sexuality.
[Now I want to take a second and hope that you can realize that I am not judging. I am merely putting out the facts. Remember I am not in the business to judge… I am in the business to put out truthfulness. Only God may judge those that break His will.]
“’I have the right to do anything,’ you say—but not everything is beneficial. I have the right to do anything’—but I will not be mastered by anything. You say, ‘Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.’ The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.’ But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
– 1 Corinthians 6:12-20
Continuing on… A lot of people are very indifferent on homosexuality; they have been sold by the liberal media that it is okay. Shows on television like “Will & Grace” and “Glee” have forced their way onto our televisions and blatantly put homosexuality into your home without your permission. The problem with these shows is that it shows homosexuality as being an okay thing. This is not okay. Hollywood, New York, and Liberals want you/us to believe that homosexuality is okay. Remember that it is not. It is not okay because it is unnatural. God has shown very thoroughly through His books in the Bible that sex is not something to mess with. It is a gift between a man and a woman – more specifically a husband and a wife.
“Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.”
– Hebrews 13:4
Hollywood has made the marital bed mean nothing. The porn industry makes billions of dollars a year playing on people’s hormones and emotions. Let’s be in understanding together: Humans are sexual. WE all know this. Men and women differ on their sexual desires – we all know this as well, but remember: Homosexuality is unnatural. Men are designed to be macho; whereas, women are designed to be sensual and soft. That is why when people look at men and women that are homosexual that ask who is the “bitch” and who is the “man?” Sexuality is made to be sacred! God has told this several times. God detests homosexuality – remember detest is worse than hate.
“Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness as long as she is in her customary impurity. Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her. And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord. You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.”
– Leviticus 18:19-23
God continues on to say in Leviticus 20:13 what should happen to those that lie with another in homosexuality:
“If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.”
And throughout the Bible, this has not changed… This law was never overturned in the New Testament, as were the laws forbidding the eating of unclean meat such as: pork, shrimp, and others. All unclean foods were deemed allowed to eat in:
“The next day, as they went on their journey and drew near the city, Peter went up on the housetop to pray, about the sixth hour. Then he became very hungry and wanted to eat; but while they made ready, he fell into a trance and saw heaven opened and an object like a great sheet bound at the four corners, descending to him and let down to the earth. In it were all kinds of four-footed animals of the earth, wild beasts, creeping things, and birds of the air. And a voice came to him, ‘Rise, Peter; kill and eat.’
But Peter said, ‘Not so, Lord! For I have never eaten anything common or unclean.’
And a voice spoke to him again the second time, ‘What God has cleansed you must not call common.’ This was done three times. And the object was taken up into heaven again.”
– Acts 10:9-16
And now you are wondering why the heck I just included unclean meat in a post on homosexuality… The point is this: Every-time that the Laws of Moses are brought up, the Liberals say why do you eat bacon then? Well the aforementioned Bible verse states that I can! But having sex with another man or a woman on woman is still evil and God still finds that detestable. The truth is always going to be the truth. We can never let the truth fall away from us.
Homosexuality is a sin. It is against the will of the Lord. Remember when you go to the polls on who you are voting for. Remember that being complacent is just as bad as being accepting of it. You don’t have to speak out against it – you do not have to be like the Westborough Baptist church – as a matter of fact DON’T BE LIKE THEM!!! However, we cannot support it in our voting. Homosexuals are like us, sinners, we can pray for them, and we can ask for forgiveness for them, and ask them to realize that what the truth is.
[On second thought, maybe I should judge a little bit because I want everyone that I know to go to Heaven. I want people to repent from their sins, but I am not going to be openly mean about it. I have homosexual friends that understand that homosexuality goes against the word of the Lord. Remember Jesus said to remove the plank from your own eyes before you remove the speck from your neighbors. He never said not to judge, but He said judge not lest be judged. I am okay with being judged because it keeps me humbled. Pride comes before the fall, and the only way to become humble is to be brought down a notch or two. Pride is what it is: pride. Just as homosexuality is what it is: a sin. God was very clear throughout the Bible.]
“Judah did evil in the eyes of the Lord. By the sins they committed they stirred up his jealous anger more than those who were before them had done. They also set up for themselves high places, sacred stones and Asherah poles on every high hill and under every spreading tree. There were even male shrine prostitutes in the land; the people engaged in all the detestable practices of the nations the Lord had driven out before the Israelites.” – 1 Kings 14:22-24
As you can see throughout the Bible it states that Homosexuality is wrong. Remember moving forward we cannot vote for sexual immorality. As I stated earlier, the fall of all great countries fall because of immorality. Now I am not saying that we need to go out and hate on homosexuals – what I AM saying is that we need to love them the same as we love ourselves because we have to remember that we are not to judge them, but we are to show them the Truth and let them learn their own way. The greatest gift God gave us is free will – and His Will is for us to search out Him and let Him into our hearts.
Remember that Jesus ate with prostitutes, tax collectors, lepers, and other undesirables. Remember what Jesus did though: He brought them to the light, and brought them to Him. He never said that it was okay that they were sinful, but He told them to “Pick up the cross and follow Me.”
I don’t know about you, but I know that I want to be one that eats with the sinners, and brings them to the light. I also want to be the person that votes to bring our country back to the forefront of Christian and moral good will. Judeo-Christian values are the values that the world lives upon as we remember. When we vote we need to remember that the government should not be in our lives, our marriages, our jobs, nor should they be in our homes. Marriage is a church oversight, not a governmental rule.
