|Homosexuality: What Does God Say About It?|
That's because God doesn't use such terms as "homosexual," "gay," and "lesbian." God's word is "Sodomite" and God has plenty to say about Sodomy. A sodomite is a person who practices sodomy - a homosexual. God uses the word "sodomite" in reference to homosexuals long after the ancient city of Sodom is destroyed, (thus the term "sodomite" can not be used only in reference to someone who lived in Sodom.)
I Kings 14:24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.
I Kings 15:11,12 And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
I Kings 22:45,46 Now the rest of the acts of Jehoshaphat, and his might that he shewed, and how he warred, are they not written in the book of the chronicles of the kings of Judah? And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.
II Kings 23:7 And he brake down the houses of the sodomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.
The word "homosexual" is a neutral technical term, while "gay" is a nice term that the sodomites have invented for themselves. Due to the constant brainwashing tactics of Hollywood and the Media, "gay" has been adapted by most everyone as the proper title for these people. To them, being "gay" is to be "merry" and "joyful" but to God, being a "sodomite" is to be wicked and sinful Genesis 13:13 But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
So "gay" is certainly NOT the proper title.
God warns us in that He is very displeased with people who apply good
words to evil things.
Drunkards are not "chronic alcoholics,"
fornication is not "pre-marital sex," and sodomites are not
Because God's word declares it to be sin, over and over again. The very first time "Sodom" occurs in the Bible, God sends a sound warning: But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly. Genesis 13:13. But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.
In Genesis 18:20, we are told that the sin of Sodom is very grievous. And the LORD said, Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous;
Genesis 19:4-7, we read of a case where the Sodomites seek sexual relations with a total stranger! Shortly after this incident, God destroys their entire city because He couldn't find even ten righteous people dwelling there. But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: 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. And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.
Later, in the book of Leviticus,
some very sharp warnings are given about sodomy.
Hundreds of years later we read that
sodomites are in the land and they are committing abominations.
King Asa, a good king over Judah, did
that which was right in the eyes of the Lord when he took away the
sodomites out of the land.
Several years later there were still
some sodomites left in the land, so King Jehoshaphat, the son of King Asa,
also did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord by taking the
sodomites OUT of the land.
We also read that King Josiah did the
right thing when he brake down the houses of the sodomites.
In Isaiah 3:9, God makes reference to the boldness of the people who commit this grievous sin: The show of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hid it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have been rewarded evil unto themselves. Is this not a perfect description of the modern day sodomites who parade up and down the streets demanding their rights?
says that PRIDE is a chief sin of the sodomites. 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. Perhaps
this is why we read about "Gay Pride" parades.
Proverbs 16:18 says, Pride
goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.
Some say that only the Old Testament speaks against sodomy but that the New Testament is silent about it. This is not true. The New Testament clearly condemns this sin.
Romans 1:21-27 speaks
about the sodomites. Paul says they are vain in their imaginations,
they steal God's glory, they are foolish, unclean, vile, and against
When read in it's entirety, Romans 1:21-32 really puts the rebuke on the wickedness and perverseness in America that Christians must live among today. Philippians 2:15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;
In II Peter 2:6,
the word "ungodly" is
used in connection with sodomy.
Paul said in I Corinthians 6:9 that these people would not inherit the kingdom of God. Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
Sodomy is wicked in the eyes of God!
Because God hates this sin and He doesn't want it 'left alone." Sin is like a cancer: when ignored, it spreads. As we have already seen from God's word, God commends those who oppose sodomy, so we too need to speak out against this abominable sin before it overwhelms us and destroys our nation like it destroyed Sodom. No, we should should not HATE the sodomites, but we should firmly oppose their sin as the word of God commands us and we should do what we can to prevent our own children, community, etc. to become 'familiar' with this sin in fear that they may also be 'dirtied' with this and other abominations.
Man says, "No, because it isn't a disease."
God says there IS a cure because there is a cure for ALL SIN. God is willing to cleanse any person of this sin and forget it forever! Some people have the strange idea that God cannot forgive certain sins, but the Bible says otherwise.
I John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one
with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all
Jesus Christ IS the cure! You can ignore what the medical profession says about there being no cure for homosexuality. There IS a cure and it is available today - if they would confess to God that they are sinner and receive His Son as their one and only Saviour.
Sin is sin, whether it be sodomy, murder, stealing,
lying, adultery, fornication, pride, rebellion, etc.
Jesus Christ shed His sinless blood and died to pay for our sins and He rose again the third day for our justification. The Bible says He will save us if we just receive Him as our Saviour.
John 1:12 -
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of
God, even to them that believe on his name:
You can believe man and pretend that God made you to be
a sodomite, or you can believe God and ask Him to save your soul from Hell
through the precious blood of Jesus Christ.
