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).

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Popular Way Vs. God’s Way

The Christian Church (up until most recently in the year 2005? or so) has always had a strong view against homosexuality/homosexual behavior. And because of this, church attendance in years past hasn’t been very popular. But now with the changing societal norms and being gay being the so-called “in” thing now (or so it “seems”, anyways), many Christian churches have now followed suit and now claim it’s “OK” to be actively gay and allows openly homosexuals to marry and be clergy members WITHIN the church! And that, in and of itself, is an abomination and goes directly AGAINST the written word of God in the bible!

In wanting to gain more converts and more pews filled, the Church has seemingly become more “world-friendly” in its stance on sin, proclaiming false things like “it’s OK to be an active homosexual” and “there’s no such thing as sin, since Jesus Christ ALREADY died on the cross for our sins” and “once saved, always saved”. But tell me. Is the holy bible like going through a Burger King drive-thru? Metaphorically speaking, is it okay to order the tomato without the lettuce, the lettuce without the tomato, cheese and pickle but no onion on the hamburger, etc? Just like that wouldn’t be a complete cheeseburger (in my eyes) without ALL those things ON it, the written Word of God is not complete without ALL of God’s commandments IN it. Cause otherwise, what did Jesus Christ die on the cross for? Think about it, folks!

Matthew 7: 13-14 states: Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and MANY there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and FEW there be that find it.

Matthew 7: 15-18 says: Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.”

Matthew 7: 19-23 says:Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fireWherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Matthew 7: 24-29 states: Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and DOETH them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them NOT, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it. And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”

Matthew 7: 13-14 means that MANY, MANY people will take the “popular” way out and do what is popular in the WORLD, but NOT what is popular with God/Jesus Christ/the bible. In wanting to feel or be “accepted”, they will forsake all or parts of the bible in their quest to FEEL “accepted”. But these sinners (and please note I’m talking about ALL types of sinners that want to justify their sin, here, NOT JUST openly active homosexuals) care more about feeling accepted by mankind, rather than by feeling/being accepted by God/Jesus Christ. And in SO doing, they forsake any chance they might have at true Salvation through Jesus Christ, except if they repent of their sins and come back to the TRUE biblical truth of Jesus Christ & Salvation before it’s too late.

Matthew 7:15-29 means that many people will profess to come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and TRUE Christianity, but only a very few select FEW will actually be as such, for MANY will be “pretend Christians” or “wayward Christians” who THINK or PRETEND they are following the bible but actually aren’t or of whom PURPOSELY lead people astray for their own personal, financial or spiritual gain. Just think of the many “Christian ministries” out there that have gotten in trouble for “financial fraud” most recently in the last few years. This is a REAL growing problem in today’s “church”.

Matthew 7:16 states: Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?” In other words, do those that come in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ manifest the “fruits” of patience, unconditional love, biblical truth, kindness, non-judgement, etc. or do they show ungodly “fruits” such as greed, envy, wrath, financial fraud/embezzlement, hatred for others, UN-biblical truths,etc.? Some of today’s modern churches and “Christian ministries” have proven themselves to be “ungodly fruits” who care more about the mighty $$$, than they do about saving souls for Christ and this is very sad & unfortunate and breaks my heart and soul to PIECES! ;( 

Matthew 22:14 reminds us:For many are called, but few are chosen.”

There seems to be this false teaching that’s permeating the very FABRIC of our society today that “all paths lead into one” or “everybody goes to heaven unless they were Stalin or Adolf Hitler, etc” when that’s just simply not true! Matthew 7: 13-14 is VERY CLEAR that it is a NARROW path and FEW actually find it!!!!!! So people are gonna have to choose in this life. Do they want to be popular with God/Jesus Christ or with fellow man? And IF a person chooses they’d rather be popular with fellow man and NOT with God, there’s an eternal price they’ll have to pay for that someday, if they don’t repent of their sins and turn back to Jesus Christ before it’s too late!

Once more, there’s TWO ways in this world and two ways, ONLY! One is either FOR Jesus Christ or AGAINST Jesus Christ. There is NO other way! Cause the truth is, ALL paths but ONE lead unto DARKNESS and the ONLY true path to God is through Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! ALL OTHER PATHS (meaning, all other world religions or philosophies, INCLUDING ATHEISM/AGNOSTICISM) lead into ETERNAL DARKNESS & ETERNAL CONDEMNATION. Those Christians out there that SAY that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to eternal paradise might SEEM “narrow-minded” on the surface, but Jesus Christ has SAID that the path to eternal paradise is narrow and FEW actually find it!

Not all of the religion in the WORLD (Agnosticism/Atheism/Catholicism/Wicca/Satanism/Islam/Hinduism/Buddhism/Mormonism/Humanism/Shintoism/Wayward-Unbiblical Christianism, etc.) is going to save you if you don’t put your faith, trust and love into Jesus Christ and Jesus Christ, ALONE! Acts 4: 12 states:  Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.

 

 

 

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is FREE!

I don’t know why but I’ve personally come across COUNTLESS numbers of Christian tracks, programs and ministries that ask for CONSTANT DONATIONS in the name of Jesus Christ!

And something about that just doesn’t sit right with me.

With so many FREE & wonderful bible study programs out there that are funded of their own accord, why do all these other “Christian” ministries out there feel the need to ask for money all the time? In fact, there’s been quite a number of cases most recently where Christian ministries were brought to light by the media over “financial fraud”.

But the truth is, the gospel of Jesus Christ and salvation is FREE! For Jesus Christ NEVER once said in the bible, “baptize them in my name, then ask them for $20” or “have the inhabitants of the city of Bethlehem pay you $50, just to be able to hear my message!”

And quite frankly, I’ve listened to lots of Christian radio programming while driving to and from work or watched some Christian evangelist programming on TV from time to time. And most of these programs (specifically, the Christian radio programming that I listen to the most) have GREAT Christian messages about how we need to repent of our sins, develop a more closer spiritual relationship with Jesus Christ, etc.

But then, as soon as some of the programs are over, or sometimes right in the middle of them, there’s a short pause followed by constant proclamations of “and now you can order the whole CD set of this program with a generous donation of $25 or more” or “for your donation of any amount, we’ll send you such and such program” or some like thing and my heart just ACHES with sadness each and every time I hear something like that. For the gospel of Jesus Christ and salvation is FREE. So why should people have to pay up the WAZOO or be FORCED to make a donation for such programs like “how to have a better prayer life”, etc? Because the truth is, ALL the questions about how to have a better prayer life, etc. can be found in the very pages of the bible, itself!

But don’t get me wrong, though. There ARE still many great FREE Christian resources out there. They are just few and far between and hard to find. But in fact, walk into just about ANY Christian bookstore today and (assuming it’s about the same everywhere and not just here in my local town), the prices are OUTRAGEOUS (using Jesus as a “cash cow”), an author’s picture oftentimes takes up the whole entire book cover (worshiping the creator instead of the creator/idolatry), not to mention there are things like “scripture candy” (pretty much milking it — the $$$ — for all it’s worth, something CLEARLY forbidden in the bible. Think about the time of  John 2:16 when it was said “And [Jesus Christ] said unto them that sold doves, Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise”. 

So when I see “disposable things” in a Christian bookstore like “scripture candy”, I am truly appalled for I feel as though they are taking it a bit too far and making the gospel a sort’ve “joke” because as soon as one eats the candy, they are “eating up” a piece of written scripture, sort’ve speak, and something about that just doesn’t sit right with me, though I can’t quite put my finger on it. And not only that but every single time I stepped foot inside the local Christian bookstore, not only did this weird creepy sense of foreboding come over me (can’t explain it — has this ever happened to anyone else or is it just me?) but they watched me like a hawk and tried to sell me things I clearly didn’t need (EXPENSIVE things!)

In fact, I almost always felt like I had been a character out of the Stephan King movie “Needful Things” every time I went in there (to the local Christian bookstore). And once more, they NEVER really talked about Jesus Christ or salvation or even asked how my day or my life was going. They were there to make $$$$, PERIOD! [And yes, I know that some people gotta make a living — that’s true — but do they REALLY need to charge $150-$200 for a brand new bible? That is just CRAZY!!!) So I stopped going there a long while ago for those express purposes. And how sad. And how my soul grieves.

It seems there is no longer a true/biblical Christian store here, anymore. And not only that but the people of my town are (sadly) seeming to become more and more “liberal” over time. This used to be a town where (it seemed to ME, atleast) that people actually CARED about God and his holy divine commands in the bible some 15 years ago. Today, in the year 2014, one would be hard-pressed to find a Christian in my town that even does so much as BELIEVES in the 100% accuracy of the bible, let alone follows it! 😦 

15 years ago, the New Age section of the local Hastings [and notice I said Hastings, I’m not talking about the same “Christian bookstore” up above] took up ONE small shelf while the Christianity section took up about 3 whole AISLES! TODAY in the year 2014, the New Age section pretty much takes up 1-3 whole AISLES while the Christian section only takes up half an aisle. And OF the things on the Christian shelf section, MOST of those things are what I call “liberal-leaned” literature. There’s TONS of NIVS, NKJV, ESV, NLT, etc. and my soul just GRIEVES, relentlessly.

Because I know full well that most of these “newer” bible translations are actually serving to lead MANY astray by changing/omitting hundreds, if not THOUSANDS of words from the original KJV text and as a result are more likely to be of the viewpoint “it’s OK to be gay” which is one of the most SINGLE, most damnable lies and heresies of the ENTIRE 21ST CENTURY (next to “once saved, always saved”, which I believe I discussed in a previous post on here). But I will discuss the former more in detail in my next post.

But in fact, I was mulling around an idea in my head the other day. Something called “The Gospel Project”. What I would do is publish various bible verses (such as John 3:16) on Vistaprint cards. And then, I would leave them in various unsuspecting places for people to see, or gather up a small pile of them in my hand on a very windy day and then throw them up in the air and let the wind do its magic since I know the Lord Jesus will let the wind blow the cards wherever he wills and allow them all to be viewed by whomever he wills. I also thought of self-publishing small little packets proving how Jesus is the Jewish Messiah and then anonymously distributing it to local Jewish centers in the area and/or possibly printing off another small packet firmly yet lovingly explaining why homosexual practitioners are “lost souls” that need to come back to God and that yes, homosexual relations are a sin, etc.

Basically, I’ve been trying to brainstorm of various ways that I can freely distribute the gospel and fulfilled bible prophecy to people OTHER than just through this blog! But I have to admit. In a nation and even a town of mostly “liberals”, I am somewhat afraid of how the gospel messages will be received. But, I must be strong and have faith in the Lord Jesus for it was said in Matthew 19:26 “But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible“.

And like I said up above, I know that all people gotta make a living, somehow. But when one is charging $150-$200 for bibles, you REALLY got to ask yourself what this world is coming to. Beware of bibles being sold for high prices, as the bible states it must be FREELY GIVEN! That’s exactly why I don’t necessarily agree with the concept of a “Christian bookstore” that’s set up like a business. A business is set up to make money, not save souls. Think how many more souls they could help save if they gave out free bibles. I’m sure they could help save a TON!

Not every lost soul in NEED of being saved has a free $200 floating around in their pockets to purchase a bible. Especially in TODAY’S economy where even some poor folks with PhD’s are now homeless due to losing their homes and jobs and in many cases, their own families (due to death/natural disasters) and very livelihoods. Now, a book in a Christian bookstore or Christian section OF a secular bookstore on how to get closer to God, okay fine, sell it for $15-$20 (a reasonable price). But the holy bible? The one thing that people actually NEED in their lives? There are many ways/solutions to give it out FREE or to sponsor FREE power point presentations/etc. on the gospel of Jesus Christ if one truly cares about all the poor, lost souls out there.

If Jesus Christ means something to you, then spread his gospel of salvation/forgiveness for sins but do it FREELY. Don’t charge a penny.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

10). 2 Kings 23:7And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the grove

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!
