Man’s constitution is not greater than the Lord’s word. When we allow sin because we feel we “have a right”, we are turning our back on God.
Homosexuality: Is it a sin?
So many churches and “christians” today are supporting and allowing gay marriage and gay rights. Jesus sat with sinners and dined with them but, He didn’t do it in supporting of their sin. He did it to teach them while He was among them. If He sat with a thief, He didn’t help the thief plan the heist. This is basically what the churches allowing such to go on are doing. Helping these sinners plan the heist by conducting gay marriages. This makes the church just as much a sinner. Man calls it “aiding and abetting”. Any bible believing christian knows that supporting or leading someone to sin is worse than committing the sin. God’s teachers are held more accountable. What are these people teaching when they allow or perform gay marriages?
1 Corinthians 6:9-12
Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.
effeminate: having feminine qualities untypical of a man: not manly in appearance or manner, marked by an unbecoming delicacy or overrefinement. [merriam webster]
The effeminate does not inherit the kingdom of God. Even if the effeminate has been saved in the past. God does love and show mercy to everyone, yes, BUT, only if you repent of your sinful ways. Admit your sins and do not go back to those ways. Sorry doesn’t have meaning if you continue doing what you are sorry for.
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
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 recompence of their error which was meet.
Romans 1:32 says “they which commit such things are worthy of death“.
Sodom and Gomorrah Genesis 19
The men of Sodom wanted to have sexual relations with the two men (angels) Lot invited into his home. Lot offered his virgin daughters instead but the men refused. The men of Sodom were homosexuals. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for their wickedness.
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
The Lord said to “be fruitful and multiply“.
Adam said, “This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
Homosexuality is a sin. I would also like to point out that while this sin is worthy of death, as every sin is, it is not up to people to bring on the penalty of death. Thou shall not kill! Their death is between them and God. Love them and teach them to follow the correct path. God does not create homosexuals. Satan is the one that puts sinful thoughts in our minds. Homosexual or not, you can control your lusts and desires as to not sin. God loves the sinner but He hates the sin.
Abortion: Is it a sin?
1 Corinthians 6:19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
Your body and all that is in it belongs to God. It is not up to you or anyone else to decide but God because it is His.
Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward.
God may have big plans for that fruit of the womb. If you knew that unborn child would grow to become a great prophet of God, would you still kill it? So often we think selfishly that everything has to do with us alone. It may not be a reward for the woman carrying the child. The woman carrying an unwanted baby may be God’s device of giving a child to a woman who wants one and for whatever God’s reason He won’t open her womb so she can have one of her own. It’s not for us to question.
If men strive, and hurt a woman with child, so that her fruit depart from her, and yet no mischief follow: he shall be surely punished, according as the woman’s husband will lay upon him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. And if any mischief follow, then thou shalt give life for life,
The fruit is the unborn child. If one causes the fruit to depart from the woman and it dies, the punishment is life for a life. Death.
Those who recite passage after passage of God commanding the death of unborn children are missing the most important fact, God commanded. These passages are not to be taken as justification to say abortion is ok. When Pharoah, who was a man, commanded the death of unborn children, what happened as a result? Anyone in the bible that killed unborn children, and no condemnation for the act is mentioned, is still not saying abortion is ok. These people will get their penalty on judgment day I assure you. Thou shall not kill!
Thus saith the LORD that made thee, and formed thee from the womb,
Abortion is a sin. It is not about “when is the fetus considered a human?” but rather your body and all that is in it belongs to God. It’s God’s creation. It’s not our decision whether or not to allow the fetus to continue and be born. That fetus belongs to God. Man needs to quit taking it upon himself to do as he pleases. Man needs to quit trying to be above God. Remember, Satan wants to be above God, too.
