Hope for Homosexuals
Karen Pansler-Lam, J.D.
Contrary to what progressives preach, the United States Supreme Court is not the highest law of our land.
God's Law reigns supreme!
And according to God's Law, marriage is the holy union of one man and one woman:
Therefore shall a man leave his father and mother,
and shall cleave unto his wife:
and they shall be one flesh.
The Bible never sanctions same-sex marriage.
Same-sex marriage is an unholy union; it's an abomination!
Shockingly, last month the United States Supreme Court sanctioned same-sex marriages. In other words, the Supreme Court sanctioned Sodomites.
The New Century Dictionary (1948) defines "Sodomite":
1. An inhabitant of Sodom; one who practices sodomy (see Deut. 23:17).
2. Unnatural sexual intercourse.
And the same dictionary's definition of homosexuality: "perverted sexual desire for a person of the same sex."
Of course, liberals are rewriting the Bible and dictionaries and civil laws to make them politically correct.
An entire book does not need to be written teaching God's condemnation of sexual perversion.
And a lengthy message does not need to be preached.
Briefly, God's Law expressly condemns homosexuality...
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections:
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 error
which was meet.
And even as they did not like to retain God
in their knowledge,
God gave them over to a reprobate mind,
to do those things which are not convenient.
Clearly, if men and women "burn in their lust one toward another," God gives them over to a reprobate mind. He allows them to become slaves to their own unnatural lusts. And they are shut out of the kingdom of God.
Matthew Henry comments on Romans 1:24-28...
2. To what they were given up.
(1.) To uncleanness and vile affections, v. 24, 26, 27. Those that would not entertain the more pure and refined notices of natural light, which tend to preserve the honour of God, justly forfeited those more gross and palpable sentiments which preserve the honour of human nature. Man being in honour, and refusing to understand the God that made him, thus becomes worse than the beasts that perish, Ps. 49:20. Thus one, by the divine permission, becomes the punishment of another; but it is (as it said here) through the lusts of their own hearts—there all the fault is to be laid. Those who dishonoured God were given up to dishonour themselves. A man cannot be delivered up to a greater slavery than to be given up to his own lusts. Such are given over, like the Egyptians (Isa. 19:4), into the hand of a cruel lord. The particular instances of their uncleanness and vile affections are their unnatural lusts, for which many of the heathen, even of those among them who passed for wise men, as Solon and Zeno, were infamous, against the plainest and most obvious dictates of natural light. The crying iniquity of Sodom and Gomorrah, for which God rained hell from heaven upon them, became not only commonly practised, but avowed, in the pagan nations.
Irrefutable historical evidence proves ancient Greeks and Romans were guilty of homosexuality. And today Roman Catholic priests are guilty of secretly practicing the abomination of homosexuality while openly condemning it.
Unquestionably, the Catholic doctrine of devils forbidding priests and nuns to marry is against the law of nature and against the Law of God. Forbidding priests and nuns to marry is a seducing spirit that helps bring about sexual perversion.
Now the Spirit speaketh expressly,
that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith,
giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy;
having their consciences seared with a hot iron;
Forbidding to marry,
and commanding to abstain from meats,
which God hath created to be received with
thanksgiving of them
which believe and know the truth.
1 Timothy 4:1-3
But there is hope for homosexual Catholic priests!
And there is hope for all homosexuals!
And that hope is Jesus Christ!
They can be set free from the bondage of filthy sexual perversion. Christ came to save all sinners from the bondage of sin, including perverts.
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit
the kingdom of God?
Be not deceived:
nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
shall inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you:
but ye are washed,
but ye are sanctified,
but ye are justified
in the name of the Lord Jesus,
and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Paul rejoices that some of the Corinthians were notorious sinners - including homosexuals - but they are now washed and sanctified and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Holy Spirit! They are set free from the bondage of sexual perversion and are free to be servants of holiness!
Alas, today this wicked world desires to keep homosexuals in bondage to uncleanness and vile affections.
Homosexuals know deep down in their hearts they are perverted. And some desire to be free...but Satan and his disciples desire to keep them enslaved and depraved by convincing them they're born that way or it's a normal alternate lifestyle.
If you are a homosexual...listen...
Don't deceive yourself. And don't let false preachers and other false Christians deceive you. The plain truth is even if you believe in God, you are not a true Christian. For the devils also believe...
Thou believest there is one God;
thou doest well:
the devils also believe,
Sexual perversion shuts you out of the kingdom of heaven. Homosexuality is against the law of nature and against the Law of God.
But you can be free from sexual perversion just as the early Corinthians were delivered!
Call upon the Name of the Lord to rescue you from depraved bondage.
