I see young guys get boxed into a lie because they are not the most masculine guys around. Okay gay, or homosexuality is a topic I normally try and avoid. It seems to make people on both sides angry. I don't really care if anyone is gay. Though I am rather astonished that something that used to be so taboo is almost main stream, and knowing someone that is gay is becoming common place. More over it's being pushed in films and in our faces more than ever before. Lesbianism, at least that I've noticed even seems to be encouraged, from tv shows, to posters at Spencers, to movies and the media. Some people think homosexuals should be allowed to marry and have the same rights as heterosexual (straight) marriages. Whats up with that? This is not a good thing, I am against this, but this is not the topic of discussion. I personally don't have anything against homosexuals or bisexuals, but I totally disagree with their lifestyle, I believe it's against God, the bible and Christianity as a whole. I don't believe there are any loop holes or any other thing that makes this okay. There are images even in women's magazines that promote lesbianism, they are put in their to leave a mark in your mind, so that one day the when your frustrated with the oppasite sex the idea doesn't seem so taboo, and maybe okay. This is how Satan works, he plants little seeds and we think nothing of it. We need to stand up and say something because this is causing people to commit a dreadful sin that can ultimately cause them to lose their soul. With songs like Katy Perry's introducing the thought to pre-teens across the globe like a virus. Satan will first get your guard down thinking that it's okay for those that choose that lifestyle, God is forgiving. Yes God is forgiving, but this is spitting on the cross. Jesus died and shed his blood to save you from sin, not just the consequence of sin. Sin can still take you down.
What then? shall we sin, because we are not under the law, but under grace? God forbid. Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
I don't think it's any greater sin than a than say adultry, but worse than just fornication. Why? There are Christians that believe that all sins are equal. But not all sins were called abominable, nor were all punishable by death, but adultry and homosexuality were. Some people say all sin is the same in the eyes of God. This is not true, this particular sin is is called an abomination, but so is divorce, though divorce was not punishable by death. I believe adultry is an equal if not worse sin, so if you've committed homosexual adultry, your sin is even greater. Then you get divorced on top of it, wow, it's not just one sin, they are piling up. Kind of like the chains on old Marleys' ghost in Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol.
Sexual sins are the only sins that the bible says are sins which we actually commit against ourselves and our own bodies.
I CORINTHIANS 6:18
Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.
Fornication (casual sex) was a sin, but not punishable by death, though homosexuality was according to the law of moses. I feel I should also note, that homosexuality would also fall into fornication, adultry and the like. But unlike homosexual sex, heterosexual sex sanctified by marriage. This doens't include open marriages, threesomes or swinging. If you have sex with anyone other than or espoused, you've committed adultry, even if your spouse is okay with it. God is not.
Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
I CORINTHIANS 7:2
to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.
JUDE 1:7Even 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.
Sodom and Gomorrha were an example of what will take place at the end. Again don't be fooled.
I know I've blogged about this before, it's is a subject that offends me, and bothers me. It seems as though people are so afraid of offending people they wonnt back up the word of God.
GALATIANS 1:10For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
MATTHEW 10:32-33Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
I've dated women that have dabbled in it, I cannot tell you how much that is "not" what I want in a woman, and I've had crushes on women that I found out were either lesbian or bi, and that is displeasing, and disturbing. Guys that are gay, not so much a bother to me, less competition. But I hate the subject being thrown in my face, I wont say anything till it's shoved in my face, then yes I'll say something. I must admit I don't like being around a guy that I know is bi or gay, but I have had a few lesbian friends.
The one thing I think is funny, is the stereotype of the gay man. Many people only view the femmy guy that acts stupidly girlie, with a funny lisp and is the receiver in the homosexual act to be gay. This is very irritating, and very wrong. For most sins you had to bring and offering to the priest, but for homosexuality and adultry, the punishment was death. It was not to be tolerated. This is a sin that God will not tolerate. There are many cultures that believe the only person that is gay, and not to be gross, is the the retardedly girlie gay that is the receiver in the sex act. This what the discussion was based upon. The fact is there are a whole lot of guys that can't take it but will dish it out, that do not consider themselves gay, or that they are committing a sinful or homosexual act. Lets see what the bible says about that.
The bible says this:
LEVITICUS 20:13If 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.
Did you read that, both of them have commited an abomination, and both are sentenced to death. So even the guy, or masculine or giver in the homosexual act is guilty of homosexuality. And according to the law is to be put to death. wow. strict! Again this is a subject that God takes very seriously. So don't be fooled.
This was a sin that, under the law, was a death sentence. Adultry was also a death sentence. Sorry I'm repeating this, but this must sink in...
LEVITICUS 20:10And the man that committeth adultery with another man's wife, even he that committeth adultery with his neighbour's wife, the adulterer and the adulteress shall surely be put to death.
Both of them again.
So let me tell you this is not something that God takes lightly. But God sent his son that whoseover believes in him should not perish. I'm sure you know that scripture it's the most famous scripture JOHN 3:16. This is where grace comes in. Through Jesus Christ, and only Jesus Christ, I might add, God gives us a second chance.
JOHN 8:1-10Jesus went unto the mount of Olives. And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.
And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst, They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act. Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
MATTHEW 12:31Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men.
This is wonderful news, just as Jesus told the woman, caught in the act of adultry, which was a crime punishable by death, according to the law God gave to moses. Your sins are forgiven, go and sin no more. That is what he is offering to you and everyone else. All sins done in the flesh are forgiveable, there is only one unforgiveable sin, and this is not that.
I CORINTHIANS 6:9Know 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,
The last two mentioned are the giver and the receiver of the homosexual act. The effeminate is the sodemite, the receiver of the homosexual act. The abuser of themselves with mankind is the giver, the masculine in the homosexual act. This is the new testament and as you can plainly see both are condemned even in the period of grace. So sin nor more. Repent and turn away from this horrible sin.
Just to note, effeminate has nothing to do with how the man acts, it is refering to this persons act of homosexuality. I've been called girlie and feminine, but this has nothing to do with being gay. I am male and straight, but is rather refering to the sexual act being committed. There are some extremley masculine gay men, and some extremley feminine lesbians.
There are those that claim, there is nothing in the bible that talks about lesbianism, (female homosexuality). Look back at I CORINTHIANS 6:18 the apostle here is saying if a man commits fornications he is sinning against his own body, it doesn't take a genius to figure out here that this also applies to women, but for the pervert out there that is looking for any loopholes, any excuse, or just any reason to get away with this perversion: ROMANS 1:26-27for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
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
UNSEEMLY (unbefitting, inappropriate, improper)
You will notice the scripture here tells us that even the women did change the natural use to that which is against nature. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that either.
So no matter how much Katy Perry tells us how she kissed a girl and liked it, it's improper, against nature and against God.
Here is a prophecy about the last days written to Timothy a pastor from Paul the apostle
II TIMOTHY 2:1-7This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.
For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,
Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God;
Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,
Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Many argue this point but you can see clearly on the fourth line "Without natural affection." We are seeing all these prophecies fullfilled increasingly every day.
There is a warning in scripture:
II THESSALONIANS 2:11-12And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
ROMANS 1:21-27 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
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:
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,
Be careful, for we live in a time of great deception. If you have not a love for the truth, but have pleasure in unrighteousness, God could send you a strong delusion to believe a lie, maybe he already has, I hope that you can see that, and your not yet deceived by this big lie that the world is dishing out...
People are not born gay, God doesn't create anyone to be gay. But sin does have control over their lives and they are blind and cannot see the truth.
II CORINTHIANS 4:3-4But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
But now you've been warned! Go and sin no more. This is the key to this, yes, come to Christ, make him the Lord of your life. But stop sinning. Remember Jim Carrey in Liar, Liar, When his secretary hands him the phone and says this client wants some legal advice and he states, "Stop breaking the law," well, stop sinning.
GALATIONS 5:21as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
II TIMOTHY 4:2-4Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine.
For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
