Christianity and Homosexuality :

The homosexuals and lesbians have gained considerable political and social momentum in America [and in the UK].  They have "come out" as the term goes, left their closets, and are knocking on the doors of your homes.  Through TV, radio, newspapers, and magazines, they are preaching their doctrine of tolerance, equality, justice, and love.  They do not want to be perceived as abnormal or dangerous.  They want acceptance and they want you to welcome them with open, loving arms, approving of what they do.

What does the Bible say?

The Bible, as God's Word, reveals God's moral character and it shapes the morality of the Christian.  The Bible has much to say about homosexuality:
  1. Lev. 18:22 "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."
  2. Lev. 20:13"If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them."
  3. 1 Cor. 6:9-10"Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,110nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."
  4. Rom. 1:26-28"For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper."
With such clear statements against homosexuality, it is difficult to see how different groups can say the Bible supports homosexuality.  But they try by redefining love, marriage, sex, homosexuality, etc., in order to accomplish their goal.  The truth is that God created man and woman, not man and man, or woman and woman.  Nevertheless, the Bible is a powerful book, and because of that the homosexuals often try and make the Bible agree with their agenda.  But it doesn't work.  The Bible does not support homosexuality, as we have seen from the scriptures above....

Good article, it covers all the bases. I have fought against the erroneous defenses of this sin for a while now; being saved by God from this, and all my sins, I know the dark side of this sin. It is NOT based on love, it is NOT normal--these relationships are filled with drug abuse, drunkenness, infidelity, std's, extreme jealousies, violence, etc. I recommend a book written by Christopher Yuan called 'Out of a far country'; in it he speaks in detail of what I mentioned here. He tells how God saved him from this horrific bondage.

Homosexuals use twisted logic to defend their perversion, going so far as to say the word 'homosexual' is not found in the bible; for the answer to that, I recommend http://iamhis-lyn.blogspot.com/2012/04/what-does-arsenokoites-really-mean.html

Another excellent source is a book based on the biblical defense of calling this sexual perversion sin, written by Dr. James White entitled 'Same Sex Controversy'. Homosexuals love to bring up the 'mixed fabric' argument, and others; Dr. White covers all that in this book.

Homosexuals insist their relationships are based on 'love', however, the Bible makes it clear this sin {and all sin} stems from a 'forbidden lust'{James 1:14}, lust which is selfish, self-centered; craving what is forbidden. It is forbidden because God has ordained, from the beginning, that 'a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.'
They demand a right to marry, claiming it is a 'civil right'. Voddie Baucham wrote a response to this claim at http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/tgc/2012/07/19/gay-is-not-the-new-black/

It seems they are using every angle they can to try and justify and demand acceptance of what the word of God clearly states is sin; if they can convince society they are 'normal' then they can advance their agenda. America needs to hear the preaching and proclaiming of sin; we live in a time when sin is re-defined. Homosexuality is re-defined as 'gay'. Trust me, there is NOTHING 'gay' about this lifestyle. It is dark, demented, and sick. As long as Satan can convince sinners they are not accountable and sin no longer is sin, they will never see a need for a Savior.


Sorry for the long rant brother, this is a hot topic issue for me; one that I will not and cannot be silent about.
