I have had the privilege this past week of spending a few days with Dr. Paul Cameron and his wife as they have been sharing with the citizens of Moldova about the dangers of homosexuality, especially to our children. Based on the arguments shared by Mr. Cameron, I want to preach a sermon this Sunday morning at the church. I was not surprised to see the results of Mr. Cameron’s research. I would like to share the sermon here with you in article form. (check out his info at the Family Research Institute website)
I. Homosexuality promises financial prosperity. We live in a material world where people will literally sell their souls in order to gain the world. The motto of the day is “live for the here and now and do not worry about tomorrow”. The idea of accepting homosexuality is promoted left and right, but of course, the negative consequences are avoided and the “benefits” (usually in the financial form) are promoted. This is nothing new. This happened in the very beginning.
And Lot lifted up his eyes and saw that the Jordan Valley was well watered everywhere like the garden of the LORD, like the land of Egypt, in the direction of Zoar. (This was before the LORD destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.) Genesis 13:10
Did you notice what attracted Lot to Sodom? It was well watered, like the garden of the Lord. It was a prosperous place. He could find financial prosperity there (no matter what else he would have to put up with, morally speaking). The Bible is even more specific on the way that the people of Sodom were living, financially speaking.
Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had pride, excess of food, and prosperous ease, but did not aid the poor and needy. (Ezekiel 16:49)
They were living in prosperous ease. Financially speaking, things were well. It was the place to be (even if morally speaking, it was a terrible place to be). Have you bought into the lie that accepting homosexuality is okay because it will bring financial prosperity to you or your country? Are you ready to sell your morality and peace of mind for financial prosperity?
II. Homosexuals and those who support them may prosper financially but there is a price to be paid in the form of their peace of mind and morality. The Bible has a lot to say about homosexuals and homosexuality. God is very frank and specific. Let’s take a look at the Truth.
Now the men of Sodom were wicked, great sinners against the LORD. (Genesis 13:13)
Then the LORD said, “Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great and their sin is very grave, Then he said, “Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak again but this once. Suppose ten are found there.” He answered, “For the sake of ten I will not destroy it.” (Genesis 18:20, 32)
According to these Scriptures, homosexuals are
- Great sinners
- Sin is very grave
- Not 10 righteous people in the entire society
- They are united and aggressive
- They cause others distress
- They practice sensual conduct
- They say lewd things
- They torture the people around them
- They indulge in defiling passions
A) Homosexuals are dangerous to children. They are predators. Here is some data on how homosexuals prey on children. Kinsey, a homosexual researcher, proclaims in a survey that “37% of homosexuals admitted to having sexual relations with boys under the age of 17 years old”. About 2% to 3% of the population is made up of homosexuals yet they are responsible for 40% of the child molestation cases in the country. (from Dr. Paul Cameron)In the Catholic church’s study on child molestation, it has been determined that the rate of homosexual molestation compared to heterosexual molestation is 13:1 (13 homosexual molestations for every 1 heterosexual molestation). I have written on the homosexual predator and how dangerous homosexuals are to minors. I would encourage you to read them.
B) Homosexuals are extremely violent. Here is a simple of list of serial killers who are also homosexual.
- Andrei Chikatilo, who was convicted in 1992 of raping, murdering and eating parts of at least 21 boys, 17 women and 14 girls
- Jeffrey Dahmer in 1992. He not only killed 17 young men and boys, but cooked and ate their body parts
- Donald Harvey claimed 37
- John Wayne Gacy raped and killed 33 boys in Chicago
- Patrick Kearney accounted for 32
- Bruce Davis molested and killed 27 young men and boys
- Juan Corona was convicted of murdering 25 migrant workers (he sexually abused the bodies after murdering the victims)
III. Here is a biblical description of homosexuals. Let’s see if there are any similarities to the empirical evidence that we have about homosexuals living in society.
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God ? Do not be deceived ; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, 10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. (I Corinthians 6)
9 realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers 10 and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted. (I Timothy 1)
So, keeping in mind what we saw earlier about homosexual serial killers, how are they described here in the Bible?
- Murderers of fathers and mothers
- Perjurers (oath breakers, like the gay catholic priests who broke their vow of abstinence by molesting young boys)
Are these the type of people whom you want working with your children in public schools? What about as your child’s youth director? That is what homosexuals desire, the opportunity of working with children so that they can influence them with homosexual propaganda as well as have access to new victims of molestation.
IV. Finally, we want to see what God has to say about the sin of homosexuality.
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female ; it is an abomination. (Leviticus 18:22)
God calls homosexuality an abomination. The word abomination means “shameful, evil, disgusting, repulsive, worthy of rejection, detestable”. Is this the view of homosexuality that you have been taught? Does the mass media present homosexuality in this way? Does that match up with their actions? Do they do detestable things? Do they do disgusting things? Do they do shameful things? As you can see, God correctly identifies homosexuals for what they are.
