Yesterday a brother in Christ came to me, heavy hearted because of the extreme empathy and aggressiveness of the homosexual movement. He lamented that some so called ‘believers’ are condoning this behavior and others are too afraid to speak out. I felt every ounce of his frustration. Day by day you see people in position of power with a huge audience, take the easy approach and jump on the ‘bandwagon’: President Obama, Beyonce, Madonna, and Al Sharpton to name just a few. I, however, will not consent. I will continue to speak out against this abomination and all the damnation that it has brought and will continue to bring to our country. I will not compare it to civil rights…. As gays have yet to be hosed down in the street, suffer access to proper education, or immediately been targeted, based on the color of their skin. Gays continue to function in society without adverse treatment due to their “orientation”. Matter of factly, they are everywhere… and while so many pity them and have empathy for them, I concede. If you indicate that you are born gay, you indicate that our God is not perfect.. that he made an error in your sex. Which true believers know cannot possibly be true and should take great offense too.The truth is that God has designed us, just the way we are supposed to be. You are squandering your purpose by determining your fate on your own, and using your body unnaturally. I do understand that this spirit is strong.. but I encourage you to overcome it with Christ. Nothing is too impossible for him, and he expects for us to prevail against the gates of Hades. I am a heterosexual married woman. I too deal with temptations daily.. to do the wrong thing. I choose otherwise. If I do choose to do something against God (which encompasses all sins, not just homosexuality) that is my choice.. I cannot expect society at large to accept it, make it legal and determine that God is in agreeance. There is no confusion about where God stands on the matter. It is clearly addressed in the Bible (which any Christian should take as foundation) There are several mentions about it in the word. Let’s start with Gen: 19: 1-13. The wicked men of Sodom attempted a homosexual rape of two messengers from God who had come to visit Lot. As a result of this and other widespread wickedness, God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah in a storm of fire and brimstone.
The next mentions are in Leviticus:
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (NKJ, Leviticus 18:22)
If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (NKJ, Leviticus 20:13)
Now.. If you are a New Testament only believer….. SMH. There are mentions in there as well:
What comes out of you is what defiles you. For from within, out of your hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile you. (TNIV, Mark 7:20-23)
And the nail in the coffin…..
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (NIV, 1st Corinthians 6:9-11)

So as far as it is concerned… If we as a people do not re-order our steps… (and again this goes out to all sinners: Liars, Cheaters, Murderers, Homosexuals, Hypocrites etc…) We will not inherit the kingdom of heaven…..period. As Christians we have a charge to first get our lives in order.. and then show those around us the correct path to take.
