Erosion of Gender in America: What’s Next? The Implications:

Today’s headlines are just inundated with “transgender issues” and “erosion of gender”. It’s sickening, really. We used to live in this great, American country where boys were boys and girls were girls. But not anymore. Welcome to the “GENDERLESS AGE”. We now live in a time where boys want to be girls, girls want to be boys and instead of discouraging “the temporary phase”, many parents today are ENCOURAGING it (and even going so far as to allow their children to have hormone treatments and sex changes, even before they hit puberty, in some cases!)

They’ve installed their first gender-neutral bathroom at the White House. Facebook now has over 50 some “gender categories” to choose from. Transgender activists such as Jazz, Bruce Jenner, etc. are dominating the social media waves. We see “transgenderism” EVERYWHERE, now. Because the media just won’t let it alone. And I honestly feel sorry for people like Jazz and Bruce Jenner, etc. Because in MY mind, they are NOT truly “transgender” but instead are “mentally confused”/demonically oppressed and should’ve received some good Christian counseling a LONG TIME AGO!

We read in the book of Genesis that God created one man and one woman and that, after creating them, “God saw that it was good”. So for one to think or say that God “put them in the wrong body” is to say that….oops! God made a mistake! And if God “makes mistakes”, then how is the Earth and the universe perfectly sustaining life? Certainly if God “made mistakes”, the universe would’ve died out LONG by now. Only, it hasn’t……

Did God make a mistake when he designed male and female bodies to fit together perfectly during marital sex? Did God make a mistake when he placed the Sun above the Earth, to help sustain all life? Did God make a mistake when he created oceans and bodies of water to help keep us hydrated? Did God make a mistake when he created unborn life in a woman’s womb? Did God make a mistake when he made cells/DNA that’s SO complex, it knows when to turn itself on, shut itself off, how to repair itself, what proteins to bind with and WHEN? Did God make a mistake when he made the different hours, seasons, times and years? Did God make a mistake when he made the seed-bearing fruits & vegetables? Did God make a mistake when he sent his Old and New Testament prophets his inspired word (The Bible), so that we can know him?

God doesn’t make mistakes, folks and anyone that says otherwise is either misinformed, unaware, or is trying to sell a “sinful philosophy”, of sorts (either to their own inner selves and/or to others). Yet sadly, many folks today buy INTO such “sinful philosophies”. Man has been running from God since the consumption of forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden. Man is always trying to come up with “creative ways” to defy God: “God made me a man but I’m really a woman”, “Evolution proves there’s no God”, “Jesus was NOT God”, “There IS no God, PERIOD”, “The Big Bang Theory DISPROVES God”, “Science proves Jesus’s Miracles as Non-Miraculous” and the list goes on and on.

But one thing is for certain. No matter HOW FAR a person will try to go to become a different gender, it’s NOT POSSIBLE! They can cosmetically become a man or a woman (sure), but they can NOT become a man or a woman GENETICALLY. They can take male or female hormones and appear to be the desired gender on the surface, but underneath it all, they are still the gender they were “BORN AS”, like it or not. Many people who’ve had “sex changes” now regret it.

And though the media will rarely IF EVER hear such cases, here are just a few heart-wrenching examples: 

http://www.oddee.com/item_99220.aspx

What has this society and the world come to that people MUST become what they feel like on the inside (when that feeling COMPLETELY CONTRADICTS THEIR GOD-GIVEN BIOLOGY?) If a boy feels like he is a “fish”, should we, as a society, give him surgery to become more “fish-like”? If a girl feels like she’s a robot, should we then (as a country — on the taxpayer dime) be forced to give her “robot enhancement surgery” for something that’s only a “passing phase”? 

And what’s more, I’ve honestly heard of news stories reporting that a parent’s “perfectly normal/straight” child came home after school one day and asked a confused question: “Am I transgender?” Not to mention that a school teacher in Canada has also come out and said HOW she “indoctrinates” her Kindergarten students to think that “gay/transgender is good”, “gay is OK”, etc.

Schools out in California are also now considering “gender-neutral bathrooms” and letting students decide what “locker rooms” and “restrooms” to use, based on what GENDER they “feel like”. This has some very scary implications for America, INDEED! Will guys now be able to “rape” girls freely at school? Will couples at school now freely have sex in the bathroom stalls & locker rooms, now?  

Many post-operatives (of sex change surgeries and even of cosmetic surgeries in general) are three times more depressed and suicidal than the general population. Why is this? In my opinion, it has to do with the actual psychological TRAUMA they suffer from the genital and/or cosmetic MUTILATION of their natural God-given bodies.

Instead of giving these poor children/gender confused folks some serious “gender-mending” COUNSELING, they are instead ENCOURAGED to go after gender-reassignment surgery or “living as a transgender”. Where is the love, people? These poor folks are already “broken” to begin with and the doctors that do the reassignment surgeries damage these poor folks EVEN FURTHER, beyond repair, in some cases.

There’s a big push in our society FOR people to be homosexual, transgender OR to kill their innocent precious unborn babies in an abortion. And ALL of these cases are TRUE cases of “mental illness/demonic oppression” that need to be treated with some MAJOR COUNSELING! A person is “mentally ill/demonically oppressed” if they think they’re “not what they were born as, biologically speaking”. A person is “mentally ill/demonically oppressed” if they think they were “born gay”. A person is “mentally ill/demonically oppressed” if they think that killing an innocent unborn child “is the right thing to do”.

Back in the 70’s, homosexuals/transgenders wanted people to know it was a “choice”, not a “mental illness”. Today, they’ve changed tune and now want to claim they were “born that way”, because in so doing, they can now gain unalienable rights that are already afforded for race, gender, etc. On the other hand, MUCH RESEARCH has shown that homosexuality/transgenderism is intertwined and BOTH come about from a traumatic experience during childhood a VERY high percentage of the time……..

Either that confused person’s parents got divorced when they were little, they grew up in an abusive home, one of the parents was absent in the home, they were sexually/physically abused, etc. In other words, research is now showing that it’s NURTURE/SOCIAL/ENVIRONMENT and NOT nature/biology. While there’s a few rare cases where a person is born a hermaphrodite, and might have grounds for “gender confusion”, ESPECIALLY if they are EQUALLY male and female (though, in most cases, they are either more of one or the other, genetically speaking), 99% of cases of people are born with CLEARLY defined gender (be it male or female).

And for those who think that homosexuality and/or transgenderism and “gender mutilation” is okay, here are some bible passages for you to prayerfully & humbly consider: (I say this with love, people):

OLD TESTAMENT

  • Leviticus 5:3
  • Leviticus 18:22 and 24-30

  • Deuteronomy 22:5 (OLD Testament) 
  • Genesis 1:27 (OLD Testament)
  • Deuteronomy 23:17 (OLD Testament)
  • Psalms 139: 13-14 (OLD Testament)
  • Romans 1: 24-27 (NEW Testament)
  • 1 Corinthians 6: 8-10 (NEW Testament)

NEW TESTAMENT:

  • Romans 1: 18-32
  • 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11
  • 1 Timothy 1: 8-11
  • Jude 1: 4, 7 & 19

  • Galatians 5:19
  • Ephesians 5: 3-7
  • Colossians 3: 5-7
  • Titus 1:16
  • Revelation 21:27

Those that call themselves “gay Christians” and “transgendered Christians” are deceiving themselves. That’d be no different than calling oneself a “Christian serial killer”, a “Christian embezzler”, a “Christian prostitute”, and so on and so forth. Just like many gay people these days try to argue they were “born that way”, a “Christian serial killer” could also make the same claim “I was born this way”. And most people out there wouldn’t let the “Christian serial killer’s argument” hold water. So why should we biblical-roots Christians let a modern-day Sodomite’s argument hold water?

Back during the time of the Old Testament, God DESTROYED the cities of Sodom & Gemorrah for the sin of homosexuality and idolatry. In fact, idolatry (back during the times of the Old Testament) seemed to be tied IN with homosexuality. And that’s where we get the word SODOMITE (from the city of Sodom). Think about how we have “Anti-Sodomy Laws” today, on the books. Where do you think those laws originally came from? Answer: The bible.

And because homosexuals can’t NATURALLY procreate, but have to have sex in a way that’s OUTSIDE the biblical sex/marriage model, their type of sex is called “un-natural sex”, which is WHY it’s called “Sodomy”. When the bible speaks of “Sodomites”, that’s “bible-speak” for “homosexuals”. And when the men in Lot’s city asked Lot to “bring out the men so that we know know them”, that’s once again “bible-speak” for “rape/sodomize”. In other words, the men of Lot’s city wanted to “sodomize” the men inside Lot’s house, that’s how sexually and morally depraved they were back then, in that dreadful city. And America today, has become JUST LIKE that God-forsaken city! Lord help us all! 

But then again, look at ANY “Gay Pride Rally” and you will see ALOT of promiscuity. You will also see lots of masks, devil horns, Jesus mocking, and public sex acts or *simulated* public sex acts. Why is this? Answer: Most homosexuals HATE the God of the bible and anything the bible stands for. That is why there is such vile hatred for biblical-roots Christianity amongst many (though not all) in the “gay community”. There’s also a blatant connection between homosexuality and drug use, homosexuality and venereal diseases, homosexuality and Satanism/Paganism. Even many former homosexuals themselves have admitted this.

If you’re a transgender and/or homosexual person reading this right now, I’m not going to lie and sugarcoat things and tell you that being gay/transgender is OK because in God/Jesus’s eyes, it’s NOT! Those who sin against God/Jesus Christ and DIE in that sin will be forced to face God’s Wrath for all of eternity!

But there’s good news. Jesus Christ can SET YOU FREE from homosexuality/transgenderism. All you have to do is ask. But you have to mean the prayer with all your heart, soul and MIND! You have to feel SO convicted of your sin(s) in your mind, heart, body and spirit that you’d be willing to do almost anything to change it. You have to cry out to the Lord Jesus with all your might! Tell him how long you’ve struggled with this……

Tell him how much you want to be freed from this! Tell him you want to be SET FREE from a lifetime of misery living the homosexual/transgender lifestyle. He’ll listen. He cares. He WANTS to save you! He’s not willing for ANY to perish! 

“For God So Loved the World That He Gave His Only Begotten Son That Whoever Believeth in Him Shall Not Perish But Have Everlasting Life” – John 3:16

However, he can’t save you if you won’t let him and IF you defiantly CONTINUE living the gay/transgender lifestyle! And true, while homosexuality/lust/transgenderism is just as much of a sin as lying, murder, thievery, etc., it’s still a sin…..a sin you must pray to be SET FREE FROM if you want to spend eternity with Jesus Christ in Paradise, someday.

You have two options and two options, ONLY! Turn or burn. It’s THAT simple. The choice is up to you, beloved. But don’t say I didn’t try to warn you.

Homosexual Marriage & Behavior is UN-BIBLICAL, Part Two

Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God”. Heterosexual people — specifically, biblical-roots heterosexual Christian people — aren’t perfect and make mistakes as well, in life. In fact, many “Christians” have acted harsh and judgmental towards the homosexual community and vice versa. There’s been major tussles on both sides, no doubts. And I think there needs to be more cordial dialogue between the two communities. Like, don’t just TELL an openly homosexual position that homosexual behavior is a sin, tell them WHY it is a sin……back it up with bible passages but don’t leave out the passages near John 3:16 as these are crucial to God’s message for ALL!

Also: there is NO “gay gene” to be found as of yet. Science and technology is SO advanced these days, that if ever there were a “gay gene”, I’m sure they would’ve found it by NOW. But they haven’t. Because the truth is, nobody (as far as I can see, anyways) is BORN that way! They are socialized INTO that way. Research has shown that a VERY great majority of “gay people” are that way because their parents got divorced when they young, they suffered some sort of sexual abuse or trauma, one or both of their parents weren’t around when they were children, their parents or guardians didn’t rightfully reinforce or display in THEMSELVES the correct gender roles to them as children, and the list goes on and on.

But when it all comes down to it, homosexual behavior is a thing of LUST. Two women or two men can’t naturally produce children and there’s a reasoning for that. Marriage (according to Genesis) is meant to be between one man and one woman. And ONLY from that type of union should children be produced since children need both a father AND a mother in their lives for proper social development. Therefore, homosexual behavior is PERVERSION, according to the bible. And gay marriage is (in God’s eyes) a complete and total ABOMINATION! Because if they legalize gay marriage, then what? Should THROUPLES get married? How about QUADROUPLES? SEPTOUPLES? Siblings? People and animals? Old men and minor boys? Do you see where I’m going with this?

But yes, indeed, the first THROUPLE has now officially “married” and it’s only a matter of time before they start demanding COMMUNE MARRIAGES, BESTIALITY MARRIAGES, etc. Just a few years ago, a THROUPLE marriage was UNHEARD of! NOW look at how things are starting to turn out……;(

And then you have things like this where they are trying to push the “gay marriage” agenda further & further & further. And I’m very saddened that Nintendo gave in to peer pressure. (I personally wish Nintendo would create more Christian-themed games, but that’s for another post for another time).  

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2014/05/11/nintendo-apologizes-for-not-allowing-same-sex-relationships-in-simulator-game/?intcmp=latestnews

Here is the latest U.S. Map 2014 of where Gay Marriages are now legal, etc.

GAY MARRIAGE MAPLegend: Green = Gay marriage legal, Pink = Gay Marriage & Civil Unions NOT legal and Yellow = Civil Unions/Domestic Partnerships legal

But what it REALLY boils down to is THIS: when openly homosexuals demand “gay rights”, what they are essentially demanding “rights” for, rather they realize it or not, is their “right” to go to hell after they die and then after that, the lake of fire (which is ETERNAL). So essentially, when Christians say they do NOT believe in gay marriage or “gay rights” per say, what they’re REALLY saying is “no, I do NOT want you to have the right to go to hell after you die!” Which essentially (when it all boils down to it) is an act of LOVE, not HATE!

Sadly, it’s SATAN (and NOT God) who actually hates homosexuals. SATAN actually hates EVERYONE, INCLUDING SATANISTS themselves, believe it or not. He sees them as nothing more than “imbeciles” that he can easily manipulate and control. He’s like a snake oil salesman that tries to sell people a “fake pill” for “happiness” and after the people die in their unrepentant sin and are thrown in hell after they die, Satan is loudly laughing all along the way, ever so proud and snarkily honored that he was able to fool them while they were still living on the Earth during their Earthly lives.

Sadly, many homosexuals are Satanists because they really, truly think that Satan is for “their cause”. And in a sense, he IS……he’s for “their cause” because he WANTS them to go to hell after they die, that is. But he is NOT for them, personally. However, God IS. That’s why it’s said in John 3:16-17: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son that whoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved“. However, Jesus Christ can NOT save someone if that person won’t let him!

But, just looking through some of today’s news headlines in general, I am saddened & grieved about what’s happening to the Church, Christians and America’s classrooms, today! It is said that “open” homosexuals only account for 5% of the population! So why is this country and the mass media acting like they are the MAJORITY or something? WHY must K-12 children out in California be forcefully subjected to learn about “pro-homosexual sexualized culture”?

What about the parents’ rights? Shouldn’t parents have the 1st Amendment right and say to opt OUT their children from such “pro-homosexual programs” in the k-12 schools, of all places if they hold true, Christian biblical-based values?!!! Don’t they have a right as parents, anymore? The media would be up in arms if Muslim children were denied THEIR rights in the schools. So why can’t Christian children also have THEIR rights, as well? “Politically correct” has gone WAY TOO FAR in this country! ;(

Sadly, these are some of the headlines that indicate where we are today as a country and a nation (who seems to have — for the most part — forgotten God and his holy commandments in the bible):

[Genesis 9:11-17 in the Old Testament (right after the Great Flood) talks about the eternal promise that the Lord God made to Noah and his family that he would never again destroy all the Earth with a flood and the “sign” of his eternal promise was a rainbow in the sky. Ironically, the “rainbow symbol” is the same symbol used by the gay community today (especially at Gay Pride Parades). It would rather seem that the pro-gay community wants to take away “God’s rainbow” and make it their own! However, one can NOT take away the holy, divine symbol of the eternal promise of God to Noah and his family and expect it to NOT come with major repercussions. Living proof of this? A.I.D.S./STDs, high drug use, crime and suicide rate among the homosexual community.

So in other words, there seems to be a “gay agenda” in today’s society. In the 70’s, homosexuals demanded “tolerance”. In the year 2014, they demand “dominance” and “control”. Not only have they taken away the symbol of God’s rainbow (the Lord’s eternal promise to Noah and his family that he would never again destroy the world with a flood), but they have now forcefully proclaimed their “pro-gay agenda” on today’s young, impressionable schoolchildren, who will eventually become the “next generation” of young people in this country! And just what will our society become like when this “next generation” starts to take over?

They also want to try to take over politics and law in this country, as well. The number of states (and even world countries) — and most specifically, churches — even some BIBLICAL ROOTS/CONSERVATIVE churches, mind you — that now support “gay marriage” is staggering. And this is just really, really sad. Because in the book of Genesis, God designed marriage as between a man and woman. And I personally see open homosexuals as nothing more than poor, lost souls that need to come back to God.

But the homosexual take-over of the symbol of “God’s rainbow”, the demanding the right to MARRY IN THE CHURCH and even to be a CLERGY member in the church, the planned takeover of the school, media and law and U.S. Government? I’m pretty sure it’s not just me imagining this……..there seems to be a real “agenda” going on, here. It seems they want to take over the school system and practically DESTROY the concept of the “traditional family” of husband, wife and 2 kids. And lets face it. What they do on their own time, in their OWN homes is between them and God. But when they take to the streets and want to scream to the world about what their sexuality is, I sense that there’s a real hatred and hostility towards God & true, biblical Christianity on their parts.

Up until 1974, the American Psychiatric Association declared homosexuality as a “mental illness” and “abnormal”. The holy bible (Old AND New Testaments) calls homosexual behavior “an abomination”.

And while I’m not sure I believe that people are “born gay” since they have YET to find a “gay gene”, there’s been some overwhelming evidence, on the other hand, that many gay/bi people become that way due to experiences that happened when they were younger. Gay/bi guys often times had overbearing or submissive mothers or fathers that were abusive or not around alot and/or were sexually abused when they were little while gay/bi girls were often times sexually abused as a young child or their father was abusive or their parents got divorced at a young age.

A certain celebrity woman that’s gay (I’m not singling her out, here, per say, just making a point) was very, very feminine up until age 4. Then, when her parents got divorced when she was 4, she suddenly changed and became a “tomboy” and later turned out to be gay. But I’m almost willing to bet money that had her parents not got divorced when they did, she probably would’ve turned out to be a totally normal heterosexual.

Not to mention that there are many “reformed” gay people out there whom Jesus Christ has successfully gotten out of the gay lifestyle.

Here is a following example of such a person.

http://www.screencast.com/t/6wFu5MAxc

And though I don’t speak for ALL openly gay people, I think alot of gay people out there try to go against God and the bible because they want to feel loved and accepted. But the thing is, Jesus Christ loves and accepts them for who they are. He might not approve of their homosexual behavior but he still loves them and wants to give them a chance at Salvation. And Jesus Christ has the ability to take what’s wrong in a person and change them for the better and turn them into the person that HE wants and needs them to be. Many former homosexuals have gone on to successfully and happily marry someone of the opposite gender with the help of the Lord Jesus Christ.

But as someone has stated, not ALL former homosexuals must be married to someone of the opposite sex to be accepted into Jesus’s eyes. Some will be called to live a single, celibate life and that’s OK. There’s nothing wrong with that. Because essentially, what all homosexual behavior boils down to is lust. And like I said, the sin of lust is no different than the sin of murder, greed, envy, malice, etc. We all have our different sins that we struggle with on a daily basis. But with the holy, divine help of the Lord Jesus Christ, we can OVERCOME those sins in our lives and not be a helpless “victim” to them, anymore. In Jesus’s name, Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Homosexual Marriage & Behavior is UN-BIBLICAL, Part One

Pastor Fred Phelps from Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka, KS did a VERY poor service to true Christians out there when he and his group held up signs such as “God hates fags” and the like. It unfairly painted a picture that “ALL Christians must be like that”, when that’s simply not true! The truth is, the Christian Church today is VERY divided on the “gay issue”, with MANY Christian churches today even going RIGHT ALONG with “gay rights” and the like. And ALL the Christian churches out there that DO NOT support “gay rights” are being written off as “hate groups” by all the LGBT activists!

But anyways, going back to the Fred Phelps thing. The MAIN tenant of his teachings, (“God hates fags”), flies DIRECTLY in the face of John 3:16 (book of John, chapter 3, verse 16) which states: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life”.

The very next line (verse 17) goes on to say: “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved“. 2 Peter 3:9 further goes on to say: “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is long-suffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that ALL should come to repentance.

So while it’s very much true that Jesus Christ Almighty DOES consider homosexual lust/acts to be “an abomination” (this holds true in both the Old AND New Testaments, as I’ll later expand on and point out later on in this post), it’s also true that Jesus Christ wants to save/redeem as many people as possible! For when Jesus Christ was crucified and died for our sins, he died for them ALL, be it lust, greed, sexuality immorality, pride, envy, murder, addiction or whatever have ya.

He sees ALL sin as equal. In other words, no one sin is greater than the other. However, it is STILL a “sin” and Christians out there sure don’t do openly homosexual people ANY favors by trying to claim that it’s “OK” if they’re openly/actively gay and that “actively gay people can still be 100% accepted into eternal paradise”, because that’s just not true.

If being actively “gay” is OK (as some “claim”), then, according to that false line of reasoning, it must ALSO be OK to be a lying, thieving, murdering, drunken, envying, idolizing, graven-image worshiping adulterer or to majorly dishonor one’s parents, habitually break the Sabbath, hate all others, have other “gods” in one’s lives like music,  money or celebrities, etc. Do you see where I’m going with this? If you throw out even just ONE commandment of the Lord, then it gives leeway to throw out ALL commandments of the Lord and God’s not like that; he is a holy, pure, just, righteous God and his judgements and commandments are CLEAR! There is no need to ALTER them for one’s own tastes!

Many people say “well, I think it should say this, instead of that“. Well, who died and made THAT person God? That person didn’t create the heavens and the Earth. That person is not themselves God. Therefore, they have no right to act as if they ARE God. For if the bible (along that faulty line of reasoning) is just a “pick and choose morality”, then what did Jesus Christ die on the cross for? Think about it, folks!

However, IF a person is living a gay lifestyle or has struggled with “gay thoughts” all their lives, Jesus Christ still loves them very, very much and wants them to REPENT of their sins and accept the free gifts of Salvation/Forgiveness of Sins and Everlasting Life. For Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the light. And he faithfully rewards ALL those who diligently seek him. It is not possible for a person to be a Christian AND an openly practicing homosexual for one can NOT have both God AND sin in their lives. Matthew 6:42 states: “ No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon“.

But the good news is, if an openly homosexual person cries out to the Lord Jesus Christ and asks the Lord Jesus Christ to change them from within and truly believes in their minds, hearts, bodies and spirits that the Lord Jesus Christ has the ability to change them, he CAN and WILL change them! Mark my words! 😉 John 14:13-14 states “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it”. The Lord Jesus Christ has spiritually cleansed and permanently healed many a former homosexual, drug addict, prostitute, etc. He CAN change you for the better! You just have to believe! Hebrews 11:6 says: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him”.

There seems to be SO many different people out there these days that are somehow trying to JUSTIFY homosexuality through bible passages and it makes my soul VERY sad & grieved! Because the truth is, homosexual behavior is a sin in God’s eyes (no different than murder, stealing, lying, adultery, etc.) and I’m not gonna sit here and lie to you (the reader of this blog) and claim that it’s OK to be “openly gay” when it’s clearly NOT “ok” to be openly gay, according to the Old AND New Testaments! And because I love ya’ll, I tell ya’ll the truth! I don’t sugar-coat ANYTHING on this blog, never have and never will! For what kind of Christian would I be if I didn’t tell ya’ll the 100% TRUTH about things and what the bible TRULY says on such matters? But when it comes to homosexual activity, the question becomes, what do you care about more? Pleasing God or pleasing yourself? That’s what the ultimate question boils down to.

In fact, there are passages in the both the Old AND New Testaments, which would suggest that homosexual behavior was just as much of a sin in the times of Jesus Christ/New Testament point in history as it was during the times of the Old Testament.

OLD TESTAMENT PASSAGES:

1). Leviticus 18: 22-24 :Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you

2). Leviticus 18: 25-27 :And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you:(For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;)”

3). Leviticus 18: 28-30 :That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you.For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people.Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the Lord your God”

4). Leviticus 20: 13: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them”.

5). Deuteronomy 22:5 : “The woman shalt not wear that which pertaineth to a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment; for all who do so are abomination unto the Lord they God”

6). Isaiah 3:9 : “ The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves

7). Deuteronomy 23:17: There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel

8) 1 Kings 14:24 : “And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel

9). 1 Kings 22:46: “And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land

11). Jeremiah 23:24 : “Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the Lord. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord

[[*NOTE: Genesis, chapter 19 in the Old Testament talks about the men of the city of Sodom who wanted to “have physical relations” with the two men that were inside Lot’s house (Lot being Abraham’s nephew, see?) while Lot tried to offer up his two young, virgin daughters to the outside men instead but the two men INSIDE THE HOUSE were actually angels of the Lord and they blinded the Sodomites OUTSIDE the house so that none of them could find the door TO Lot’s house. The next morning, Lot begged the two angels to be allowed to go into a little city called Zoar while the Lord God rained down fire from heaven upon Sodom & Gomorrah and totally destroyed the two cities to burnt/ruinous heaps. That’s where the terms “Sodomite” and “Sodomy” come from]].

 ———- NEW TESTAMENT PASSAGES: —————

1). Romans 1: 24-26 : “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

2). Romans 1: 27-28: “And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient”

3). Romans 1: 32:Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them

4). 1 Corinthians 6: 9-10:Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God”

5). 1 Timothy 1:10 : “For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine

6). Jude 7: “ Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire

7). Matthew 11: 23-24 :”And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee”

8). Matthew 19: 4-6 :”And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder

9). 2 Peter 2:6And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly

Matthew 5: 17-18 says: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled” [And notice that everything won’t be COMPLETELY fulfilled until the VERY END of Revelation 22!]

Please, I beg of you from the bottom of my heart and the DEPTHS of my soul. If you are an openly practicing homosexual out there and/or are struggling with “gay thoughts” or “gay attractions”, then please, please, please take it to Jesus. Ask Jesus Christ in earnest prayer to cleanse you from your sinful/impure thoughts. The bible calls homosexual behavior “perversion”. And again, I don’t say that to sound hateful or judgeful, I say that to open up your eyes to the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is the ONLY way to receive forgiveness of sins, he is the ONLY way to eternal paradise and he is the ONLY way to cleanse us from within. Ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sins and he WILL cleanse you from within, I guarantee it!

Remember that Revelation 12:12 states: “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time“. In other words, Satan doesn’t have alot of time left before he’s ultimately defeated by Jesus Christ. So he’s gonna spiritually blind and deceive AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE and one of the ways he does that is through the sin of LUST.

And remember: Satan WANTS homosexuals lusting after one another and having lustful relations with one another, Satan WANTS homosexuals to hate Jesus Christ and the bible and everything it stands for, Satan WANTS homosexuals dying in the sin of open/active homosexuality so that they go to eternal condemnation when they die! However, JESUS CHRIST wants JUST THE opposite! Jesus Christ does NOT want homosexuals having lustful relations with one another, does NOT want homosexuals to hate him or the bible and everything the bible stands for and does NOT want open homosexuals to go to eternal condemnation when they die! He WANTS to give open homosexuals (as well as ALL sinners) a chance to REPENT of their sins and receive SALVATION/forgiveness of sins and Everlasting Life/Eternal Paradise.

Here is such a man who’s successfully recovered from the gay lifestyle and reclaimed his life in the name of Jesus Christ!
