Homosexuality

 

(By Jay Yeager)


Homosexuality, merely a different life style or sinful in the sight of God? Those who support homosexual rights have forced this issue into virtually every segment of our society. The question is debated in our schools, our workplace, over television – even religious groups have joined the discussion.


Now, I admit that the outcome of these discussions would concern me if man sets the standard of morality. But he does not! (Proverbs 14:12; Jeremiah 10:23; Isaiah 55:8-9)


God, through his inspired word, has legislated the boundaries of acceptable human behavior (I Corinthians 6:9-10; Ephesians 5:3-6; Galatians 5:19-21), boundaries beyond the purview of men to either broaden or restrict (Deuteronomy 4:2; Proverbs 30:6; Revelation 22:18-19).


Therefore, it is not a question of what men will or will not accept. The only question is whether or not God will accept it. Upon that question the eternal destination of those who practice and support homosexual activities rest.


Now this question, how does God view homosexuality? The following passages from both the Old and New Testament constitute God’s answer to that question.


Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination” (Leviticus 18:22).


If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed and abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” (Leviticus 20:13).


For this cause God gave them up unto vile affection: 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 recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate (depraved) mind, to do those things which are not convenient” (Romans 1:26-28).


And turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with overthrow, making them an example unto those that after should live ungodly” (II Peter 2:6).


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” (Jude 7).


So friends, regardless of how adamant, or how vocal, the supporters of homosexuality are in their efforts to convince people that such practices are merely a different life-style, God has already spoken on the subject, and the message is clear. Unrepented of, homosexual activities will damn the soul!
