Homosexuality is Sin

Homosexuals are not "born that way."  The truth is that every one of us is born with a sinful nature. (Psalm 51:5, Romans 3:23,   Ecclesiastes 7:20)  But, children are not born gay nor does that excuse or justify unrepentant sin. 

If we defend homosexual behavior, do we then defend stealing?  Do we defend lying?   Do we defend murder?   These too are sin.

The unbelieving world is embracing the act of homosexuality. They are in serious error. God says that this conduct is vile, unclean, unnatural and an abomination. 

True believers will either stand firm on the Word of God, or they will cave in to the politically correct, and become part of the last-days apostasy. (Matthew 24:10-11, 2 Timothy 4:3-4, 2 Timothy 3:1-5)

Scripture also tells us that homosexual behavior leads a person straight to a "reprobate mind" and that these are  "haters of God."

Warning others about homosexuality is not hate language; it is Biblical Truth.   Nor is this passing judgment; God has already judged this behavior in His Word. 

God loves people.  He loves them so much that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16)   But, God also commands sinners to repent. (Mark 1:15)

The Word of God is perfectly clear on this matter - homosexuality is sin. ℛℒ

Romans 1:24-32 …  Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 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.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Leviticus 18:22 … Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 …  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.

Deuteronomy 23:17-18 … There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.  Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

1 Kings 14:24 … And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel.

1 Timothy 1:9-10 … Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers,  For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;

1 Corinthians 6:9 … 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;

Jude 1:7 … Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
