The Bible is not at all bashful about this subject. There are those in both the politicaland religious establishments who fervently attempt to legitimize homosexuality as an acceptable alternative life-style in spite of what the Bible says. Homosexuality is initiated and fostered by Satan as an ongoing effort to attack God's original design of creation of male and female. This is a decisive decision by the individual.
The Word of God specifically calls homosexual behavior sin (see Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9, 11). Homosexuality (to exchange or abandon natural relations of sex) was as widespread in Paul's day as it is in ours. This behavior is strictly forbidden in Scripture. Tragically, homosexuality is considered an acceptable practice by many in our world today, even by many churches. Many homosexuals believe that their desires are normal and that they have a right to express them and even demand that society as a whole acknowledge their behavior and beliefs are God given rights. Many even believe they were born in this fashion.
Because God's Word is the only authority for life; Christians must accept the fact that homosexuality is born out of deception and the lust of the flesh. Homosexuality is by nature a predatory behavior and can only result in death.
On May 17, 2004, in the state of Massachusetts, homosexuals and lesbians were granted legal status for un-holy matrimony. This was a tragic day in America's history as this abomination is paraded as an acceptable behavior that will be protected by law.
WhatAre Christians To Do?
As Christians, we must vocally condemn this awful behavior and articulate the imminent danger to a nation that goes beyond mere toleration to accommodation of this wicked device. The Church of Jesus Christ can be firm on this matter without condemning those who practice and perpetrate this sin of homosexuality (John 3:17).Even a person in this awful life-style can be saved.
What is the answer to this tragedy? The answer is a Spirit Filled, Bible Drilled, and Christ Thrilled Church that will remain steadfast on Calvary's Hill and boldly proclaim Christ Jesus!
