As you can see the Old Testament is very specific regarding the act of homosexuality. BUT that was under the rules of the old covenant some might
argure so lets see what the New Testament has to say about it...
Romans 1 This is Paul writing to the Roamans, thus the name
. Shortly after the the Asscention of our Lord to heaven
let start in verse...24 and finish at the end of the chapter.
" therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of
GOD for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather then the Creator, who is blessed forever.AMEN. For this reason God gave them up to vile
passions. For EVEN THEIR WOMEN exchanged the natureal 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 commiting what IS SHAMEFUL, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And
even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a DEBASED MIND, to do those things which are not fitting: being
filled with all unrighteousness, SEXUAL IMMORALITY, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness;
they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of GOD, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disovedient to parents, undiscerning,
untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who knowing the righteous judgement of GOD, THAT THOSE WHO PRACTICE SUCH THINGS are deserving of
DEATH, not only do the same but also APPROVE of the THOSE WHO PRACTICE THEM."
As you can see make no mistake the bible is VERY VERY clear, on its stance towards homosexuality. There are other passages in the NT, but i dont feel
like typing them all out. So GEMWOLF i will give them to you that you may open your own bible and read.
1 Corinthians 6:9
1 timothy 1: 9-10
MAtthew 19: 4-5 Speakes of why a man leaves his father and mother...and its not to live with another man.
How Gemwolf if you are truly saved can lead a life that you claim you do?
This isnt my quote the author is the Ontario Consultants on Religious Tolerance.
I earlier stated that it wasn't a saving point, which its not. One can fall into this perverse act and turn from it. That is the hallmark of a
Christian a turn from their sin, however gemwolf if you continue to live this way and profess Christianity....I doubt your original statement.
"The New Testament refers repeatedly and consistently to homosexuality as a forbidden, detestable practice deserving of punishment by God or mankind
- one that leads directly to hell and eternal torture. These passages fully agree those of the Old Testament. A born-again Christian cannot be a
non-celibate gay or lesbian. According to 1 Corinthians 6, if they were truly saved, then they would be cured of their homosexuality; they would be
converted to heterosexuality."
So as you can see, I still Love these people. They are created in the Image of God, yet they need the Lord. And it is in LOVE that i rebuke them.
