RO 1:21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish
hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like
mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
RO 1:24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen.
RO 1:26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural 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 indecent acts with other men, and
received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
You might be married, you might be straight, but you are not a christian. If you want to have Jesus Christ as your saviour then you need to repent.
From Christ himself:
MK 7:20 He went on: "What comes out of a man is what makes him `unclean.' For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual
immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a
man `unclean.' "
The Ancient Greek word used here for sexual immorality is 'porneia' (πορνεία). This covers all sexual perversion outside of marriage.
We all fall short of the glory of God and we are all sinners. We all need the grace of God but please do not dilute the message of Christ. I write
this out of love, not to cause a quarrel but rather to correct you so that you do not mislead others.
The marriage approved by God is between a man and a women.
GE 2:24 For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh. The man and his wife were
both naked, and they felt no shame.
