In addition to these sins, the Bible is clear that homosexuality is also a sin.
"You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. " Leviticus 18:22In addition, it is clear that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of blatant homosexuality (Genesis 19:1-13).
"If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them." Leviticus 20:13
"For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due." Romans 1:26-27
Homosexuality is not a worse sin than any other. The problem with those who are in bondage to the sin of homosexuality is they refuse to acknowledge their sin and they go even further. They demand that society approve of their sin. They embrace their homosexuality and demand that we embrace it as well. No other group of people living in sin demand approval from the world. There is no child molester group demanding approval of their sin. There is no murderer group demanding approval of their sin. Their is no prostitution group demanding approval of their sin. Only homosexuals clamor for approval from all people of their lifestyle.
Homosexuals say that when we do not approve of same-sex marriage then we discriminate against them. Homosexual spokesperson have even compared their movement to the civil rights movement of African-Americans. Listen to what African-American civil rights leaders have to say about that:
Gays and lesbians “may want to cast their fight in civil-rights terms, and a lot of people are buying it. But not the faith community and especially not the black community,” says Bishop Harry Jackson, whose Hope Christian Church has a flock of 3,000 in the Washington, D.C., area. “Many African-Americans believe gays are discriminated against, but they don’t believe marriage is a civil-rights issue,” says Jackson, who says his father was threatened at gunpoint in the 1950s by a state trooper while working on a voter-registration drive. “There are issues of acceptance, but there is no back of the bus; there are no lynchings.” There is also the ongoing debate as to whether homosexuality is an immutable trait or a choice. “It’s not immutable,” says Jackson. “And it’s not an externally observable characteristic unless you want to flaunt it.”Homosexauls also make the argument that they are "born that way," that is, they are born homosexual and they cannot help it. This argument doesn't hold water either. The same could said for murderers, prostitutes, liars, cheaters, etc. They say that scientists are close to discovering a homosexual gene.
Indeed, some 70 percent of African-Americans voted yes on California’s Prop 8, and exit polls found similar levels of opposition among blacks for a marriage initiative in Florida that same year.
Rev. William Owens, President of the Coalition of African-American Pastors said, "I marched with Dr. King and we did not march one step to promote same-sex ‘marriage’."
Even if scientists do find a so-called "homosexual gene," the Bible is clear that every human being is born with a sin nature. The human nature is a sinful nature. And to give oneself over to one's own human nature is to sin against God. We have all succumbed to our sin nature and we are all sinners, but that does not excuse us from our responsibility to love, obey, and glorify God.
Let me make this perfectly clear: the sin of homosexuality is no worse than any other sin. Some people will say that this blog post is "hate speech." That is untrue. I do not hate homosexuals or anyone else. I love them enough to tell them what God's Word says about their behavior. I love them enough to tell them there is good news. The sin of homosexuality can be forgiven by God if homosexuals confess their sin, repent (turn away from) of their sin and trust in Jesus Christ to save them from Hell. This good news is for all sinners, not just homosexuals.
I write this because I love you. I do not want you to go to Hell. I implore you to confess your sin, repent and turn to Christ before it's too late.
