So today I’m going to share my thoughts on a rather sensitive topic. I know this can go on and never ending as everybody has their various opinions on this issue. Please note I’m in no way attempting to judge anyone just merely saying what my take is on this and your opinions are HIGHLY welcome 🙂
Let’s begin shall we?
I would suppose you reading this post right now knows what being “homosexual” means? If you dont kindly open up your dictionary today 😛
I can love you (you here refers to a homosexual), and play with you and what not but the fact never changes that I view homosexuality as a SIN. Plain Simple.
I’m a Christian and I follow the teachings of my Bible which makes it clear that all forms of homosexual acts is a sin.
Take for example, Leviticus 18:22, 23: “Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. Do not have sexual relations with an animal and defile yourself with it. A woman must not present herself to an animal to have sexual relations with it; that is a perversion.”
Old Testament some people would say.. well see this also
Romans 1:18-31, especially verses 26 and 27: “Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.”
1 Corinthians 6: 9 “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”
I could go on with more verses of the scripture but I would stop there! Now there are those who like to say and believe that the Bible does not condemn homosexuality and a LOT of verses are cited (out of context) and the verses used to explain the wrongness of this act are explained away. But you see, I believe the world merely wants to change God’s words and teachings into something more suitable for their sinful desires. Nevertheless, The Bible still states homosexuality as a sin.
Clearly God created “Adam and Eve” not “Adam and Steve”. So homosexuality goes against the created order of God. Having the feelings I wouldn’t consider a sin.. the devil is always at work, always trying to stay busy but when you begin to act on these desires that is when it becomes a sin. And what is the wages of sin? DEATH
The bible passage in Romans stated above , read the full scripture, God’s judgement here for this sin is that “they will be given over to their passions”. This means that their hearts are now allowed to be hardened by their sins and therefore they can no longer see the wrong in what they are doing. And without an awareness of sinfulness, there will be no repenting and giving it over to Christ.
Now some people will love to say it is genetic.. Lol well I’m sorry to disappoint you darlings but till this moment there hasn’t been found any gene that can be pointed out as being the cause of this behaviour and until such is found, I’m sleep on that angle.
Concerning Morality, there would seem to be no moral issue if a person can’t help his or her sexual orientation. And yet having a desire is not the same as acting on that desire (which is certainly evident in heterosexual attractions), so moral agency remains. To be sure, our inner desires to do what is forbidden–our “concupiscence”–are sinful and testimony to our fallen condition. Nevertheless, the will is operative.
So well there you go..
Just like we tackle every other sin, we can also take this ..all of it.. to the Lord. His Grace IS and will ALWAYS be sufficient for all. We were all born in sin and fallen short of the Glory but His grace freely now abounds.
Now that is the end of my long talk. Lol
What is your take on this subject? Let me know!! 😀
