The Bible and the Homosexual
Not too many years ago, it was NOT proper to speak in public about homosexuality. People just did not talk about it. They knew it existed, but they knew it was wrong. Church people knew the Bible condemned it as a sin. Maybe TRUE Christians have been silent too long! Just in the last 20 years there has been an incredible change in public attitudes. WHY? Because the influence of magazines, newspapers and books, which have supported a sympathetic attitude toward this sin.
Many doctors, psychiatrists and psychologists defend homosexuality. The movie industry has portrayed homosexuality and lesbianism in a caring way. In movies and TV, sodomy has been introduced to adults and children alike, and it has had a huge impact on public opinion. Now, homosexuals are coming out in the open and bragging about their practice, including gay parades and gay pride week. Gay is a slang word that homosexuals use to describe themselves. To me, gay means happy, joyful. I simply cannot see how a homosexual can be happy.
Consider the following:
Homosexuality, Sexual desire for those of the same sex; sexual relations between individuals of the same sex.
Homosexual, a tendency to direct sexual desire toward another of the same sex, or involving sexual intercourse between persons of the same sex
Sodomite, a person who practices sodomy.
Sodomy, any sexual intercourse regarded as abnormal, as between persons of the same sex, especially males, or between a person and an animal.
Lesbian, a homosexual woman, the sexual practices of Lesbians; homosexuality between women.
The Bible Is Absolutely Opposed to Homosexuality
No matter what man may say about homosexuality, the TRUE Christian must turn to the Bible in order to get God's truth on ANY subject, including homosexuality. Only there will we find the eternal truth, which should forever settle the issue. Surely no one who has knowledge of the Bible could ever put up with, what this Holy Book considers as an abomination! ANY preacher, church or believer in Christ, who advocates the homosexual life style, simply does NOT know the Bible, nor do they believe what it clearly states! Both the Old and New Testaments bear ample proof that God considers homosexuality to be a terrible, wicked sin.
Homosexuality is in total opposition to nature! God told Adam and Noah to multiply, and replenish the earth (Gen.1:27-28; 9:1). IF Adam or Noah and his sons had chosen homosexual way of life, then the human race would have come to an end. Think about it . . . IF all the earth's population became homosexuals, the human race would come to an abrupt It is true that some homosexuals are bisexual, and do bear children.
Sodom and the First Mention of Homosexuality
Genesis is the book of beginnings, the book of families. When you find something mentioned the first time in Genesis, this will set a pattern for understanding it throughout the Bible. This certainly holds true on homosexuality.
Genesis 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly. (KJV) . . . It would not be long that the nature of the sin Sodom was homosexuality.
God revealed to Abraham that He was going to destroy Sodom. Genesis 18:20 And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; (KJV) . . . God sent two angels, who appeared as men, into Sodom to warn Lot and his family to flee the city. The angels spent the night in Lot's house. Genesis 19:5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them. (KJV) . . . It is clear that the Bible uses the word know many times to describe a sex act between two individuals. "And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived, and bare Cain,..." "And Cain knew his wife; and she conceived, and bare Enoch:..." (Gen.4:1,17).
Lot offered to give the men of Sodom his two unmarried daughters, which had not known man, but of course those depraved sinners were not interested in women. They wanted men because they were sodomites! Even when they were smitten with blindness by the angels, these wicked men still tried to find the door of Lot's house.
God destroyed Sodom with fire and brimstone. Anyone who reads Genesis 19, can clearly see God's attitude toward the practice of homosexuals. Genesis 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; (KJV)
This judgment of Almighty God is mentioned many other places in the Bible. It is used as an example of God's judgment by Jesus, Peter and Jude in the New Testament. NO TRUE Christian would ever question God's righteousness in destroying these cities.
Genesis 19:24 Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; (KJV)
Deut. 29:23 And that the whole land thereof is brimstone, and salt, and burning, that it is not sown, nor beareth, nor any grass groweth therein, like the overthrow of Sodom, and Gomorrah, Admah, and Zeboim, which the LORD overthrew in his anger, and in his wrath: (KJV)
Psalm 11:6 Upon the wicked he shall rain snares, fire and brimstone, and an horrible tempest: this shall be the portion of their cup. (KJV)
Isaiah 1:9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. (KJV)
Jer. 20:16 And let that man be as the cities which the LORD overthrew, and repented not: and let him hear the cry in the morning, and the shouting at noontide; (KJV)
Jer. 49:18 As in the overthrow of Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the LORD, no man shall abide there, neither shall a son of man dwell in it. (KJV)
Jer. 50:40 As God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah and the neighbour cities thereof, saith the LORD; so shall no man abide there, neither shall any son of man dwell therein. (KJV)
Lam. 4:6 For the punishment of the iniquity of the daughter of my people is greater than the punishment of the sin of Sodom, that was overthrown as in a moment, and no hands stayed on her. (KJV)
Eze.16:49-50 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. 50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. (KJV)
Amos 4:11 I have overthrown some of you, as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked out of the burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saith the LORD. (KJV)
Zep. 2:9 Therefore as I live, saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Surely Moab shall be as Sodom, and the children of Ammon as Gomorrah, even the breeding of nettles, and saltpits, and a perpetual desolation: the residue of my people shall spoil them, and the remnant of my people shall possess them. (KJV)
Matthew 11:23-24 And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven, shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in thee, had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day. 24 But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for thee. (KJV)
Luke 17:28-29 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; 29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. (KJV)
2 Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; (KJV)
Jude 1:7 Even 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. (KJV)
Again I say, NO TRUE Christian would ever question God's righteousness in destroying these cities. They KNOW that God is a righteous God and does only that which is right. God hates ALL sin, and ALL sinners shall be judged! Rev. 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire. (KJV) . . . Is YOUR name in the book of life? If not, it can be!
Wickedness all around us! Wickedness is worsening continually, just as it did in the days before the Flood!
