Since evil prospers when good people do nothing my wife and I decided to take action after hearing of the removal of the ban on gay marriage in California. We wrote an email and mailed it to all of the people in our address list. Included in this email was a PowerPoint lesson on the truth about the dangers of homosexuality, along with a lesson to print and share with others and some statistics on the diseases that come in the form of consequences of the gay lifestyle. Several people wrote back to us and thanked us for our concern and the fact that we are not indifferent. Many said that they passed the lessons on to others. We were very pleased to hear that. On the flip side, we received a response from an Evangelical church that shocked us. We have spoken at this church and they helped support some of the camps in Moldova, camps where we learned to fight against immorality, especially in the form of homosexuality. This church promptly asked us to “take them off of our mailing list immediately”. From reading the message we understand that this church, which is supposed to be made up of the saints of God, actually support sin by promoting immorality in the form of homosexuality. God has taken a firm stand against immorality, especially in the form of homosexuality. Read the following verses and you can see for yourself. There is hope for those trapped in the cycle of sin that homosexuality brings. The Lord Jesus Christ came, died, and rose again to break sins hold over our lives and give us freedom and the ability to overcome (say no to) sin.
’You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22)
The word abomination means the following “Detestation, Shameful deed, Evil, Disgusting, Hateful, Disliked”. God uses a powerful word to describe what homosexuality is. God has more to say about this sinful lifestyle when He says
“If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13)
The word detestable means “Abhorrent, Hateful, Repulsive, Despicable”. God, once again, uses very strong language to define this diabolic lifestyle and He goes on to say that the homosexual lifestyle causes death and homosexuals bring it upon themselves. There is an old saying that is, “it has to get worse before it can get better” and it is applicable here. Not only do homosexuals destroy themselves but they also shut the door to the presence of God in heaven after death. God makes it very clear when He says,
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators . . . nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, . . . will inherit the kingdom of God.Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
The bad news is that homosexuals will not inherit the kingdom of God if they continue living the homosexual lifestyle. The good news is that there were homosexuals in Corinth who were changed by the Lord Jesus Christ through repentance and now they are no longer homosexuals and they will now inherit the Kingdom of God. There is hope for all, wouldn’t you like to receive that hope? Wouldn’t you like to share that hope with others? Now is the time before it is too late. God bless us as we fight against immorality.
