Archives For homosexuality

It is a shame that the US government is essentially destroying the US military’s capacity to perform its duties in the name of social justice. First it allowed homosexuals, then it insists on allowing women in combat duties, further pushes for an extreme reduction in size, and now they wish to not only allow transgender individuals but to pay for their required procedures. Good job America. All these nations around us not doing these ridiculous practices are salivating at the thought of our self implosion.

It is rather amusing that there’s so much hate and vitriol being spewed about the new Arizona legislative move. Yet not a single person can state the contents of the bill. And no, the bill is not about discriminating people based on sexuality. Read the bill. Don’t let media types and businesses bully you into an opinion until you have read it for yourself. 

I’m no fan of Duck Dynasty as I find their lifestyle and accents to be very unappealing. But reading the news concerning their family head Phil Robertson has me rolling my eyes yet again at what this nation is coming to. This isn’t even about free speech and the ability to express opinions. This goes much deeper as it wasn’t so much his having an opinion that was called into question but that it wasn’t the right opinion or more “progressive” opinion. Phil basically called out homosexuality as a sin and said he didn’t understand why men or women would respond sexually to someone the same gender as them. Hardly the “vilest and most extreme statements uttered against LGBT people in a mainstream publication” as stated by the gay organization GLAAD. You would think by the extreme outrage of these gay groups that he said gays ought to be rounded up and branded or something of that nature. GLAAD spokesman Wilson Cruz stated, “He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans – and Americans – who support legal recognition for loving and committed gay and lesbian couples.” Clearly Cruz doesn’t realize that most Americans aren’t in favor of accepting these mutual masturbaters’  behavior as normal in society. Hints why all legislation must be dealt with by the courts system and not through the legislative bodies. Why do they do this? Because they know they won’t convince the 96% of normal US citizens to accept it even in the most “progressive” of places such as California. This is why you won’t see any voting on the issue. Why can’t the courts in the United States get this  concept but the government of India can?

While its true as Christians we ought to be loving to all mankind and bringing them to Christ, Christianity has no gray areas. A sin is a sin and there is no changing these facts which was all Phil was essentially stating. Calling a spade a spade. Some people would rather change the truth than accept it. 

There is a reason this is the number 1 rated cable show and its not because they break off of traditional values and do whats hip or trendy.

Very proud of the Barilla pasta company for standing up for traditional family values and not taking the tolerant (i.e. you don’t like it but you say nothing) approach on the issue of homosexual couples in the commercials. Italian cuisine and home life has always been this way and should remain unchanged. There is no reason they should be required to align towards a certain group’s political agenda or attempt to capitalize on the trendy homosexual movement while giving up their moral values. Like Barilla says, “If they don’t like it, then they will not eat it and they will eat another brand." 

I compiled this list mainly due to vast amount of misinterpreting of scripture in particular old testament laws. There is nothing more cringe worthy then someone who learns something but lacks understanding. It appears many are unable to comprehend what is moral law, ceremonial law, and civic law as well as the establishment of the new covenant. So I will only post new testament laws this time. I typically use the Latin Vulgate Bible in my own reading but I will use a more modern translation the English Standard Version. 

1 Corinthians 6:18Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.

1 Corinthians 6:9-10Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each one of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor, not in the passion of lust like the Gentiles who do not know God;

Matthew 5:28But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

Hebrews 13:4Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.

Colossians 3:5Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

Galatians 5:19Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,

Mark 7:20-23: And He [Jesus] said, “What comes out of a person is what defiles him. For from within, out of the heart of man, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, coveting, wickedness, deceit, sensuality, envy, slander, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within, and they defile a person.”

Jude 1:7Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

1 Timothy 1:9-10: Understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,

 

I implore you to not just take my own word for it but to research these passages yourself. Its good to go read the context in order to get a full understanding of their meaning. Remember these are not condemning people rather their behavior. All people are capable of asking for God’s forgiveness and God will forgive all who come before him with true contrition.
