I write in regards to the legalization of same-sex marriage throughout the fifty states of America.
First of all before I begin, I would like to make it clear that I am neither judging, nor am I hating and I am entitled to my opinion. Now the opinion that I am going to share is written in regards to my Biblical worldview and I not only speak to to the non Christians, but to the Christian as well. So now, allow me to begin.
It is a popular lie that God’s Word says nothing about homesexuality being wrong. I would like to annihilate this lie. Take Romans 1:25-27 “They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” This is my truth. And I know that though God is waiting for you with arms wide open, you have to take the leap and follow him leaving your sin in the dust. I also know what happens when you do not turn away from sin. Another example would be what happened in Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 18-19). The men and women were living sexually immoral lives. Homosexuality was prominent in these two cities. I would summarize what happened but I fear that I will leave out something important, so here it is. Genesis 19: 1-8 “The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.”
“No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.”
But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house.He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”
Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.”
To summarize a bit, God told Abraham that because the two cities were so entrenched in sin that he was going to destroy them. The Lord showed Lot and his daughters mercy and they were able to escape before the cities were destroyed. However, because Lot’s wife looked back she was turned into a pillar of salt. She was so captivated by the evil, that she could not let go of it. She needed one last look. But because of their failure to repent, Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. The last scripture that I would like to bring up in this paragraph is this “Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men” 1 Corinthians 6:9. Those are the words of God. Not man. This what the Bible has to say about homosexuality.
Our nation was built on basis of Biblical beliefs, however over the past two decades are nation has suffered degradation in its moral values. Our current administration in the white house is ungodly. I think that there is a problem when our nation’s leadership is indifferent to the murdering of an unborn child, and even encourages it. My question is, as it is stated in several blogs that I have read, if “love has no limits” where will it stop.
In conclusion, this is evidence of the end times. God’s said in 2 Timothy 3:2-4 “People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God”. Repent. Turn away from your sin. I would like to say one last thing before this comes to an end. I feel just as repulsed by adultery, rape, murder, etc. But the problem that I have with this is sin, is that it is being celebrated.
God bless you all and thank you for reading. God is still sitting on the throne and is in control.
