The homosexuality

What God says about the homosexuality in His Word

I would begin by this actual subject what is the homosexuality. At the time where the homosexual couples ask to obtain the same rights that the married couples and where the gay prides to increase, it is important to clear things up on a spiritual view point.

It is not the gays as humans that it have to be rejected, but the practice itself. God says, by the Apostle Paul's mouth in 1 Timothy 2 : 4 : 'Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.'. It is for these reasons that we, christians, have not to turn one's back on these persons on the pretext that they do not think as us, but we have to love them as the Lord tells us : 'But love ye your enemies, and do good, and lend, hoping for nothing again; and your reward shall be great, and ye shall be the children of the Highest : for he is kind unto the unthankful and to the evil. Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful.' (Luke 6 : 35 - 36), but also : 'Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink : for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.' (Romans 12 : 20 - 21). If I said enemies about the gays, it is because they are considered as some enemies of the good, so also our enemies. To go back on our love for our enemies, I likewise would to say that we have not the right to reject the gays because we do not know the God's plan for them, but we have to talk them about God and pray for them : 'I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men.' says the Apostle Paul in 1 Timothy 2 : 1.

What we have to categorically reject is the homosexual practice. Here is what the Bible says : 'For this cause God gave them up unto vile affection : 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, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.' (Romans 1 : 26 - 27), and also : 'Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness.' (Ephesians 4 : 19). What is the most shocking is that some preachers (priests or pastors) approve this practice and also bless some homosexual couples, as they would do it for a wedding between a man and a woman. Very often they add that if those two persons love each other it is the most important and, I suppose that they all base themselves on the biblical chapter about the love in 1 Corinthians 13. But they look forget the God's judgement about the sexual lasciviousness. The Bible is very clear about this subject, the homosexuality deserve the death : '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.' (Leviticus 20 : 13). Of course, this judgement is the same for the lesbians. Some people will certainly say that it was a verse in the Old Testament and that the Lord Jesus Christ came later for save us by His grace, but the same judgement is also write several times in the New Testament. We read, in Romans 8 : 5 - 8 : 'For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against God : for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God.'. For a precise description about the works of the flesh, here is what God says through the Apostle Paul :'Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these : Adultry, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkeness, revellings, and such like :of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.' (Galatians 5 : 19 - 21). God is more clearer in 1 Corinthians 6 : 9 - 10 : '... Be not deceived : neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminates, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.', but also in Ephesians 5 : 5 : 'For this ye know, that no whore monger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.'.

By the light of all these verses, it looks evident that the preachers who bless these homosexual couples not take into account of the God's judgement for this practice and it is really sad. All this logically drive to that some gays to turn to God, but in which way ? As much as they think that they are blessed by God because nobody talked to them of the Lord's judgement, they will unfortunately continue to follow a wrong way. All what I would like to say to these persons, it is to read the Bible and ask to God to understand what is write. God also exhort them in Leviticus 18 : 22 : 'Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind : it is abomination.'. The word is strong, indeed, but it is in this way that God call is People and change the tortuous hearts. He also says in Romans 13 : 12 - 14 : 'The night is far spent, the day is at hand : let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light. Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkeness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.'. The works of darkness are, of course, all what is opposite to what God asks to His People. 'For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication : that every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honour; not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God;' says Paul in 1 Thessalonians 4 : 3 - 5, in other words to abstain from all what God does not accept. Peter adds in his first Epistle in the chapter 2, verses 11 and 12 : 'Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; having your conversation honest among the Gentiles : that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.'. That means that we cannot be christian and live as the Gentiles. So, God who hate the sexual lasciviousnesses, can certainly not call a gay as to be His child, that does not make sense. That is why He says : 'Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.' (Ephesians 5 : 10 - 11) and He adds in Colossians 3 : 5 - 7 : 'Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry : for which things' sake the wrath of God cometh on the children of disobedience : in the which ye also walked some time, when ye lived in them.'.

So, there is one thing to say to the gays. To the ones who call themselves christians, I am sorry to tell you that you not listened what the Lord says in His Word, because He is clear. If you live as the Gentiles, in the flesh, you are not some real christians and you will be severely judged by God, because the homosexuality deserve the death. So, if you really want to please to God and obey to His wish, turn away from your practice, confess your sins, God will forgive you and give you the strength to resist to the temptation. He gives you a promise in 2 Corinthians 6 : 17 : 'Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.'. So, there is two solutions : or you are some real christians and go out from this horrific practice that is the homosexuality, or you are still gay, but there, you are not some real christians.

For finish, I would like to add that the gay prides are really dangerous, because they give a wrong image to the children, the one who is opposite of what God teach us in His Word. The aim of the parents is to give a good education to their children. So, how some demonstrations such as the gay prides can hope help the families ? At the present time, it is already not easy to give a good education to one child, so show them some people who are not much dressed and who kiss so easily another person of the same sex on the lips can destabilize them and very probably make of them some marginals later.

By the light of all that, it is good to repeat that we are in the last times and that we, christians, must denounce the homosexuality who make some big damages in the actual society. The gays themselves say that they want to inform as much as possible of people, particularly amoug the youth, of their way to live. So, let's have also ourselves the courage to do it in the name of our God because, in the Judgement Day only the ones who will have gave their spiritual lives to God, to sincerely confessed their sins in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, will be saved.

Same if you can imagine that I judge myself the gays, it is not the case. I developed this subject because God want to be clear about what it is write of the homosexuality in the medias, by the light of His Word, the Bible.

The biblical verses come from the King James Version
