HOMOSEXUALITY

PREFACE

I had already written the article on homosexuality within the pages of this booklet, when a past occurrence with a homosexual  acquaintance  came to mind and it triggered another thought that needs to be brought up here, to illustrate a problem that should be addressed. My wife and myself were sitting in a local restaurant eating our lunch one day, when the homosexual manager whom we knew well and liked, came over and sat down with us for some friendly conversation. The man was about in his mid-forties or so. During the course of the conversation my wife asked him if he had any kids? To which he replied, “Hell no! That bitch ( another male ) I’m living with can’t have kids”. That is the problem we need to bring out in the open, in the bright light of day and take a good look at it for what it is. We have arrived here in our permissive society where the movers and shakers, the high and the mighty, the politically correct crowd with the ability to make, set and enforce policy that the rest of us little insignificant people are supposed to support and live by without ever raising any objections. But for the lives of little children whom in their future will be required to live, learn, function and grow up in such a putrid and unholy environment, I will put my two cents worth in here.

Now that our government and many states have passed laws that make it legal for men to marry men and women to marry women, the hand writing is on the wall. Since there is no possible way that these unions will ever in a trillion times a trillion years ever be able to produce sons and daughters on their own within the sexual orientation they have chosen to follow. What is already happening across the nation is an added evil to be dumped upon our innocent little children. Through the agency of adoption they will have either a mommy and a mommy or a daddy and a daddy to try and figure out how life is supposed to work within a family. In my opinion it will become akin to the experiment that Hitler put into place and tried, coming into WW11.

He tried breeding big blue eyed, blond haired masculine men with women of the same stature. He would build the “Master Race”. Time has shown the complete disaster of the outcome. Without the sanctity of one man, one women marriage, it was a failure that Hitler never lived to see. Many lives of those conceived and raised in this fashion became wards of the court, orphans, and outcasts of the German society. God has ordained a certain way in which children were to be born and raised up to become productive citizens of our world. That is by having a woman mother and a man father living together within their home in harmony. Although we may not be doing it in an exact and perfect way, never the less, it is the way in which God intended and ordained it to be.

Imagine if you will, little Johnny and little Susie ( Having been adopted out to a homosexual couple ) The first thing that boggles their little minds is what goes on within the home as the touchy feely, unnatural relationship between the mommy and the other mommy begins. Mommy kisses, fondles and sends erotic signals to their other mommy. Or worse yet when daddy does the same thing to their other daddy. Then bed time rolls around and daddy and daddy head into the bedroom with their hand on the others hind end, as they begin hearing weird noises coming from the closed door of the bedroom. The next day they go to school and are ridiculed, made fun of and have to try and explain the wonderful life their daddy and daddy explained to them. How lucky they are to have two daddies instead of just one. What chance do little children have in attempting to live a normal, well-adjusted life being raised in this type environment? I predict it will make Hitler’s experiment look a lot like a Boy Scout jamboree. I hope you will not roll over and play dead on this issue. Even if we are not able to do anything about it, we do not have to accept, endorse it or believe it is anything ordained by our Almighty God. "It never was, and never will be"!

 HOMOSEXUALITY

I would like to bring to our mind today something that should concern everyone on the face of this earth. God having created us all in this carnal nature that He has, It continues to cause mankind many woes of which God knew that it would. This world has been set here as a training ground for the purpose of training all men, women and children to be the proper, perfect gods that we were all intended to be. To eventually become exactly like God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ, to have immortal, spirit life as They have life. And since the intentions of God before the world began was and is to give us all eternal life. In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; ( Titus 1:2 ) It then becomes a foregone conclusion that nothing in heaven or earth can change or stop it from happening. We are all the gods that we are being declared to be in the book of Psalms. 5. They do not know nor do they understand; They walk about in darkness; All the foundations of the earth are shaken. 6. I said, "You are gods, And all of you are sons of the Most High. 7. "Nevertheless you will die like men And fall like any one of the princes."… (Psalm 82: 5 - 7) We are now the gods that God intended us to be. We are however still yet in our training period here on earth as physical beings, and will all experience death before our spirit returns to God whom gave it to us at birth. Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. (Ecclesiastes 12:7) I would like to discuss something with you here that gives me great concern. I would like for my Savior Jesus Christ and you the reader to know my thinking and my position on this matter.

About the direction we are heading

When I look about myself and try to be, and am aware as much as possible, to know what is happening within this permissive society in which we live. It grieves my soul as I watch the latest degenerate filth that is being passed off on our little children and adults alike as if it was something good and upright, something to feel good about and enjoy to our hearts content. While in truth and in fact it is the exact opposite, being passed off on a docile society often to absorbed into self-gratification themselves, believing as some do, to live and let live, don’t rock the boat, as they turn a blind eye and deaf ear to the situation, ignoring it and hoping it will go away. While many do object and long for a change of attitude and a more righteous climate in which to raise their children in, yet not knowing what to do about it, they linger on in frustration. This is where I find myself, as one little insignificant individual, what can I do about it? I have decided if it only helps one other person to better understand the truth of God and to have faith, it will eventually work out to all of our advantage. No matter what is happening around us, if we do have the courage and strength of character to chart a course of resisting the evil pulls of the flesh as we look to God for guidance in our lives in all that we do, it will have been worthwhile to have spent my energy on this written piece.

Bear with me here

I want to address here what I perceive to be a specific and growing problem of epidemic proportions. It gives me goose chills up my spine just to imagine where our nation and society is headed while it continues to expand and mushroom out like an atomic explosion. I dread thinking about how my grandchildren and their offspring will be able to function and have enjoyable, happy, fulfilling and productive lives, if the direction we are heading in doesn’t somehow change direction. I feel certain it will take an act of God to bring that about though. How far down in the gutter of evil, depravity and filth will we have to travel before God will intervene? The specific problem I want to address here is the sin of homosexuality, and our present society that instead of condemning it, is hell bent on making it look, seem and be thought of as mainstream, natural and wholesome, something of great value to be engaged into without controversy, shame, disgrace, disgust or consequences. It is being flaunted on our television channels in every area of entertainment you care to mention. Several well-known lesbians having their own TV programs to promote their degeneres, excuse me I meant their degenerate life styles. Coming out of the closet is thought to be a badge of glory, to be praised and looked upon as a feat of courage and bravery.

Our president speaks out

I am not a homophobic; I do not hate nor fear homosexuals or lesbians. But neither do I believe it is something as a practicing lifestyle to be proud enough of to announce it to the world any more than one would announce their active participating in adultery, fornication, wife swapping, incest, rape, murder, lying, stealing, cheating, spousal abuse, prostitution, pedophilia or child molestation, or any other sin against God and mankind. If one has been born with the bend and proclivity to involve themselves in such behavior, wouldn’t it be considered wise to fly below the radar? Keep their sins and secrets to themselves? Below is an email forward I received a few weeks ago from a friend. Isn’t there anything like national pride anymore? It makes me ask the question: “Where is a nation or world for that matter, heading, with this sort of mind set and reasoning???  When a soldier is killed in the line of duty, his family eventually gets a flag and a note conveying sympathy and respect from the United States Government. When a Black pro basketball player announces he is a queer, he immediately gets a personal phone call from the President of the United States congratulating him for his courage. Am I missing something? Well then, excuse me. How one is being programmed and trained to believe matters! With our own president being involved in promoting and endorsing the coming out of one, not as a changed or repentant but as an active and practicing homosexual, the hand writing is already on the wall, we can just get ready for more of the same.

Will failing to learn from history, cause a repeat of consequences?

I would like to give you here a short but very true history lesson. The story unfolds way back in the bible book of Genesis, chapter eighteen. Abraham, (you can read it for yourself) a person dedicated to God was setting by the gateway of the city as three men appeared before him. The three men were Jesus Christ and two angels manifesting themselves as men. Abraham however, apparently knew who they were and treated them honorably, kindly and with due respect. He had his wife Sarah make a meal for them and brought them into his home to show the hospitality required. The account then follows below in Genesis 19 one through twenty nine. To indicate how bad things were in Sodom and Gomorrah, the city or cities that Lot ( Abraham's nephew ) and his family lived in. It shows how evil and depraved the inhabitants had become. It shows as well the specific sin in this case that was causing all of the problems. I request you read carefully through chapter nineteen. Maybe read it again, I have some comments to make about it after you have finished reading it.

Sodom and Gomorrah Destroyed

(Genesis 19: 1) (NIV) The two angels arrived at Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gateway of the city. When he saw them, he got up to meet them and bowed down with his face to the ground. 2 “My lords,” he said, “please turn aside to your servant’s house. You can wash your feet and spend the night and then go on your way early in the morning.” “No,” they answered, “we will spend the night in the square.” 3 But he insisted so strongly that they did go with him and entered his house. He prepared a meal for them, baking bread without yeast, and they ate. 4 Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. 5 They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them.”6 Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him 7 and said, “No, my friends. Don’t do this wicked thing. 8 Look, I have two daughters who have never slept with a man. Let me bring them out to you, and you can do what you like with them. But don’t do anything to these men, for they have come under the protection of my roof.” 9 “Get out of our way,” they replied. “This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge! We’ll treat you worse than them.” They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.10 But the men (angels) inside reached out and pulled Lot back into the house and shut the door. 11 Then they struck the men who were at the door of the house, young and old, with blindness so that they could not find the door. 12 The two men said to Lot, “Do you have anyone else here—sons-in-law, sons or daughters, or anyone else in the city who belongs to you? Get them out of here, 13 because we are going to destroy this place.

The outcry to the Lord against its people is so great that he has sent us to destroy it.” 14 So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who were pledged to marry his daughters. He said, “Hurry and get out of this place, because the Lord is about to destroy the city!” But his sons-in-law thought he was joking.15 With the coming of dawn, the angels urged Lot, saying, “Hurry! Take your wife and your two daughters who are here, or you will be swept away when the city is punished.” 16 When he hesitated, the men grasped his hand and the hands of his wife and of his two daughters and led them safely out of the city, for the Lord was merciful to them. 17 As soon as they had brought them out, one of them said, “Flee for your lives! Don’t look back, and don’t stop anywhere in the plain! Flee to the mountains or you will be swept away!”18 But Lot said to them, “No, my lords, please! 19 Your servant has found favor in your eyes, and you have shown great kindness to me in sparing my life. But I can’t flee to the mountains; this disaster will overtake me, and I’ll die. 20 Look, here is a town near enough to run to, and it is small. Let me flee to it—it is very small, isn’t it? Then my life will be spared.” 21 He said to him, “Very well, I will grant this request too; I will not overthrow the town you speak of. 22 But flee there quickly, because I cannot do anything until you reach it.” (That is why the town was called Zoar.) 23 By the time Lot reached Zoar, the sun had risen over the land. 24 Then the Lord rained down burning sulfur on Sodom and Gomorrah—from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 Thus he overthrew those cities and the entire plain, destroying all those living in the cities—and also the vegetation in the land. 26 But Lot’s wife looked back, and she became a pillar of salt. 27 Early the next morning Abraham got up and returned to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 He looked down toward Sodom and Gomorrah, toward all the land of the plain, and he saw dense smoke rising from the land, like smoke from a furnace. 29 So when God destroyed the cities of the plain, he remembered Abraham, and he brought Lot out of the catastrophe that overthrew the cities where Lot had lived.

Homosexuality, the blight on our society

I hope you have read and have retained a vision in your mind of what was taking place in Sodom and Gomorrah. The scriptures tell us, “Without vision, the people perish”. That is exactly what happened in Sodom and Gomorrah. Notice the words here in verse 4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. In other translations it says they beat upon the house round about. It was not just a select few perverts that came and surrounded the house and demanded to have sex with the angels, thinking they were men, it was ALL OF THE MEN, young and old! They all had obviously become homosexual within their sexual orientation and had forsaken the natural affection of a man/woman relationship. As it were, following one another into the perversion that God would judge and condemn as sin that would prevent one from belonging to the kingdom of God. I hope you are following along here to get a feel about how God views homosexuality, and the ramifications thereof. There is nothing about homosexuality that is good and upright while being practiced, anymore than child molestation, pedophilia, murder, rape, prostitution, lying, stealing, cheating or any other sin against God and man. Yet, like I have already pointed out, Satan through the mouths of Bob Costos, the liberal media, president Obama along with the political correct crowd, as well as an endless number of a deceived multitude eating at the table of demons, continue to expound the virtues of this damnable, filthy and degenerate perversion as if it was a God ordained practice acceptable to the God of all heaven and earth. It is not now, never was and never will be!

What should the proper terminology?

A group of geese are called a flock, or a gaggle, a group of deer are called a herd, a bunch of lions are called a pride. I wonder what it is that one should call or refer to as group of queers? You’ll have to excuse me, but let me explain why it is that I use that terminology, why I refer to them as queers. I joined the United States Army as soon as I turned seventeen years old. I was born and raised on a farm in a back woods type of environment. I knew absolutely nothing about the world around me that couldn’t be taught or learned in school, and even there only through the ninth grade. I was thunder struck to say the least, the first time I went into town wearing my new Army uniform and was approached for sexual purposes by a male. My more worldly wise soldiers soon informed me that I had just met my first queer. I was to learn they hung out around where young men and boys ( in this area there is a fine line between pedophile and homosexual, if any line at all ) congregated, at bus stations and places that the innocent, unsuspecting and naive run aways from home, come into their filthy grasp. Approaching the innocent and vulnerable, getting acquainted, being a friend, "Let me help you", having a big impact on a lonely run away on the street, then suddenly its to late, they will likely victimized and taken advantage of. Then at military establishments where they pursue and go after the young soldiers, sailors, marines or whatever branch of service has been located within close proximity to where they live. I would venture to suppose here now sixty plus years later it has only gotten worse, much worse. Where the common practice of the homosexual is to troll areas where the young, the innocent, the naive young men ( or boys ) are to be found in abundance. Where they can apply their filthy stock in trade of life.

I learned early in life to call things by names that seemed to fit what it was that was being named. Therefore male homosexuals became Queers and female lesbians became Dikes. In the same way that we might refer to robbers, rapists, murders and thieves as thugs, renegades or mobsters. I would like to add here, a broadcast yesterday at the olympics in Sochi Russia, made by the well known news caster Bob Costas, as he attempted to put his jabs in against the Russian leader Putin. Among other things, he faulted Putin for being against "Gay Rights". As if he was talking for you, me, and all the rest of the world. Let me assure you he was not talking for me. I even dislike the use of the terminology gay rights to indentify something of such filthy and nasty actions as anything that should have the word gay attached to it. I too, like Putin am against not only practicing homosexual rights, but against the rights of practicing pedophiles, murders, rapists, child molesters, pimps, prostitution, as well as those using abortion as a preventive measure of being responsible for taking the life of a new born baby made in the image and likeness of God.  I admire Putin for his position on homosexuality, unlike our high leaders that have all been programmed to accept and believe a lie being shoved down our throats by the liberal media, the politicians pursuring the homosexual vote along with the almighty political correctness we continue hearing about. It is as if our political leaders from Obama on down have all had their brains and reasoning ability turned into chicken soup and are draining out through their ears. Let me try and explain something to you. Our society may be based upon majority rule, but it is always God that is in control of all things and all of the time. God has supplied us with His superior knowledge and understanding in all things through the pages of the bible. Majority rule never has and never will replace the will, the purpose and plan of God and the instructions He has left recorded for us all. God has declared homosexuality a sin that needs to be stopped and repented of as all other sins as well. Obama, the liberal media, political correctness or no one or nothing else can cancel out the the Word of God on this or any other issue.

 

Is it time to begin thinking for ourselves?

 

Consider our present day mind set that is rapidly looking more like the society that existed in Sodom and Gomorrah spoken of above. Notice if you will, what happened as more and more homosexuals of that time came out of the closet so to speak. Without any shame, disgrace or any feelings of guilt attached to their grievous sins against God and man, ( it was all of the men, young and old ) they became brazen and filled to the brim with pleasing themselves at all costs. Jealousy, envy, lust and greed had completely taken over their bodies, mind and spirit. This is what happens when one is being led astray by the perversion being looked upon as normal by those surrounding them. But in actuality, is of the worst possible degenerate, and filth beyond description. The exact same thing that happens in a crate of potatoes or apples, If one rots and is not removed from the crate, it won't be long before the whole crate is rotten. At our present rate of deception and decline in morality, how long might it be before other perversions slowly become mainstream and normal? Tolerated and even flaunted as a right to be observed by all? Consider the news cast of a couple days ago that informed us that a full 50% of Catholic Cardinals ( waiting in line to be pope ) are homosexual or pedophiles. ( a fine line between the two ) Where their past practices of exposed pedophiles in the priesthood, were simply moved to another perish in a different area to keep on practicing their stock in trade upon the innocent children of the faithful, without any fear of penalty. The hand writing is on the wall my brothers, sisters and friends. None of us have to be programmed and led to accept and to believe that homosexuality is a right that should be guaranteed to one and all. Where men marry men and women marry women. It is unnatural and is not intended by God to be.I was born and raised on a farm where we raised animals for a living. A livelihood that depended upon reproducing stock to survive. How long do you imagine my physical father would have allowed a bull, a rooster or a boar pig to have eaten at the trough, if they only hung around and attempted to mate with those of their own sex. They would have quickly found themselves heading to the sale barn to become a part of the food chain.  But common sense it seems is just to much for us to expect from the movers and shakers that are attempting to control our minds and destiny, apart from the revealed Word of God.

 Two different type homosexuals

We have all been created with a carnal nature, a nature that opposes the law of God. We all sin and come short of the glory of God. I am not sitting myself up as a holier than thou individual without my own sins. I most likely have more sins to repent of than many others do. But my friends, my brothers and sisters, it is what it is; homosexuality is a sin that the offender needs to stop and it needs be repented of. In this, we find the two different types of homosexual. The one homosexual that sees, understands and knows he is sinning against God and man and is prepared and trying to quit the practice by following after the word and the way of God. He/she is actively in a daily repentant state of mind, more power to them, they are on the right track. The other type is he or she that is tuned into the wavelength of the devil and Satan, the god of this world, whom thinks and reasons according to the teachings and leanings of our permissive national society. Believing it is their own privilege and right to pursue anything and everything (They can get away with) to please their own self-gratification. Reasoning it is no one else’s business. That is the group of queers that I have not yet found a name for. They thumb their collective noses at God whom it is that leaves these words below, for all to contemplate and think about.

22 'You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. 23 'Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion.… (Leviticus 18: 22 - 23) God likens homosexuality to having sex with an animal. As an example of the level of filth and perversion that can prevail when left unchecked, all we have to do is to look back at Sodom and Gomorrah and see the record that God has left for us to contemplate, think about and hopefully do something about, if it is only to understand it correctly as God reveals it to us in His word.

Life in Sodom and Gomorrah

Reflect back for a moment and imagine what life was like in Sodom and Gomorrah. I will add a commentary by John Gill below this paragraph to help paint a picture of oppression against strangers and evidently the women and children and the helpless. Genesis 13:13 (NKJV) Tells us this. But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord. According to the account we just read in Genesis 19, ALL of them, young and old alike, were dyed in the wool, filthy, degenerate, homosexuals. Queer for those of their own gender. They had given up any natural affection or desire for women, in their quest for men sexual partners. None of them, not a single one evidently had any desire for the virgin daughters of Lot that were offered to them. They were all hell bent on having sexual relations with the two angels perceived by them to be men. While you still might be trying to square it away in your mind, why it is that president Obama picked up the phone and called a professional athlete to congratulate him for announcing that he was queer.

Imagine in your mind if you will, exactly what this means. What is it that goes on between two people of the same sex during their passionate encounter of self-gratification? The stench of it all reached God on His throne, as He came down to deal with it. Do any of you reading this piece know what it means to be sodomized by a male member of society? If you don't, shame on you, it is high time you learned exactly what it means. Either get online or look it up in any dictionary until you do get a vivid picture in your mind of the meaning thereof. Maybe you will not be so easily led into deception once you understand this.

John Gill Commentary

And the Lord said: (Genesis 18:20.) The Targum of Jonathan adds, to the ministering angels, the two angels that were with him in the likeness of men; or to Abraham, at least in his hearing, by which he understood that Sodom and other cities were about to be destroyed for their sins: because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great; either of Lot in it, whose righteous soul was vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked, and cried to heaven against them; or of the inhabitants that were oppressed by others, either in their bodies, being forced to submit to their unnatural usage of them, or in their estates, of which they wronged them; particularly the cry of the poor among them, whom they suffered to starve, though there were fullness of bread in the midst of them, see “‘Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. 50 They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen. (

Ezekiel 16:49Ezekiel 16:50); The Jews say, they appointed false judges, who oppressed all strangers that came to Sodom, and made a law, that whoever relieved a poor person should be burnt with fire: or the cry of their sins, which were many and great, and openly and impudently committed; the cry of which came into the ears of the Lord of hosts, and called for vengeance. Those two cities, which perhaps were the greatest and the most remarkable for their sins, are put for all the five cities of the plain, called Pentapolis. And because their sin is very grievous; attended with very aggravated circumstances, they enjoyed great plenty of good things; and were not to be bore with, being so exceeding sinful, and so publicly and audaciously committed, especially that sin so frequent among them, which has its name from Sodom, as also seen above in Genesis 13:13. But the men of Sodom were exceedingly wicked and sinful against the Lord. (End quote)

Is God watching us yet?

Regardless of what president Obama, the liberal media or the world under the sway and leadership of the devil and Satan have to say about the sin of homosexuality, you can count upon it, Jesus Christ knows exactly what is happening down here on earth, He actually lives within us. He tells us He is the same yesterday, today and forever, that He changes not. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever. Do not be carried away by varied and strange teachings; for it is good for the heart to be strengthened by grace, not by foods, through which those who were so occupied were not benefited.…  (Hebrews 13: 8 - 9) "I am the LORD, and I do not change. That is why you descendants of Jacob are not already destroyed. (Malachi 3:6) Will there come a point in time when once again the Lord will no longer be able tolerate conditions here on earth as they were in Sodom and Gomorrah? Where certain sections of our nation or specific areas have become hot beds of unchecked homosexual infestations, causing a blight upon the soul of civilization that requires a similar action as that of Sodom and Gomorrah?

If it be so, will some of us have a chance to escape the physical death and devastation as the areas are being destroyed? If so, will we be looking back and longing for the filth, decadence, rot and corruption we would be leaving behind, and be turned into a pillar of salt?

We as a people need to get our heads out of our hind ends and begin thinking for ourselves instead of having our minds controlled by the permissive society in which we live and raise our families, or the churches that we attend and add our amen to the soft and easy words that come from the ministers mouth. Homosexuality when being practiced is a most grievous sin as we see recorded in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. Imagine if you will if president Obama had been there in the home of Lot while a crazed bunch of frenzied queers looking for self-gratification were trying to beat the doors down to see which one could have him first, or had to wait their turn in line to sodomize him. ( Do you know what it means to be sodomized? ) Do you suppose he would have been anxious then to yell out and congratulate them for exposing themselves to be homosexual? These are not soft and gentle words to contemplate and to think about for the tender hearted, but for the sake of our children, our childrens children and their childrens children, we need to be doing all that we can to inform and keep them protected against such rampant and degenerate perversion that exists within the neighborhoods of all homes through out this United States of America.

A frog in a pan

When will we wake up and come out of our slumber on this issue of homosexuality? You may have heard the story of the frog that was placed in a pan of warm water on the stove. He sat there in warmth and comfort as the heat ever so slowly, was increased. He became so complacent, warm and comfortable that he sat right there and boiled himself to death. Although he could have jumped out at any time and saved his life. In like manner, homosexuality like the frog in the pan has slowly lulled our society into a comfortable sleep. It was for many years a taboo action of humanity that was hidden underground as society recognized it for the sin it really was. Ever so slowly it begin to move from the world of darkness and sin into the dim light of day. Progressing slowly then one baby step after another, growing momentum toward respectability. Now after a half century and more it has not only become socially acceptable within those of the liberal media and those supposedly following after the god of political correctness, it has now shown itself to be in the bright light of the day. The Word of God is being ignored while the corrupt voices of many come up with their own set of rules, regulations and criteria on what constitutes sin against God and man. Even though we as individuals may not be able to do anything about it, we do not have to accept and believe it be the truth. In fact we should be able to recognize it for what it is ourselves. Or will we be like the frog on the stove; will we become warm, comfortable and complacent in our slumber until we are symbolically boiled to death?

 According to God

God doesn’t remain silent on these things, He tells things as they really are. We can see what His position is on these matters in 1 Corinthians here… 9 Or 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, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6: 9 - 10) (ESV) Then we go to, 1 Timothy and see some more of the same. “But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted” (1 Timothy 1:8–11).

We are able to see here by the word of God, how homosexuality is lumped together with, and in comparison with, the ungodly. Whom in their right mind would call and congratulate them for exposing themselves of such persuasion? Yet there is hope for all of us, remember what the Apostle Paul told those in 1 Corinthians. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6: 11) All of us in the due time of God will be washed, we will be sanctified, we will be justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the spirit of our God. We all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, to that there is no doubt. However, God knew that it would happen and made provisions for it before the world began. In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; (Titus 1:2)

Making a long story short

Now you are going to hear some good news, my friends, my brothers and sisters in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. God created us all with a carnal nature, He knew we would all require being rescued and saved from our sinning nature, it was in His plan from before our beginning. At the preordained time He sent His Son Jesus Christ here to earth to be born as a baby of a human woman. Jesus Christ was born of His mother Mary as we all know. He had been given the responsibility from His Father God to then grow up into a man without ever once sinning, which He did do. At His crucifixion and death He never once had sinned. This qualified Him and caused Him to be greater than all of mankind combined and therefore to become the Savior of all of mankind. When He announced at His crucifixion “it is finished” He had finished the work His Father had given Him to do. All of mankind, without exception at that point had been guaranteed salvation. God had placed all of the sins of mankind upon the shoulders of His Son Jesus Christ. When He died in our stead, in our place, from that point on we all have been declared sin free because Christ had taken them all upon Himself. As far as the east is from the west is how far God has removed our sins from us all. As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions (sins) from us! (Psalm 103:12) I am here to tell you how good that news is to me. I was in the military and whose job it was to kill and destroy my fellowman made in the image and likeness of God. I still have sleepless nights remembering my own brutality at times, of which I still have to repent daily of. I have been around and made friends with people of every description. From cutthroats, murders, rapists, liars, cheats, swindlers, fornicators, prostitutes, homosexuals, and more. When they are not involved in their sins, they can be pretty decent people. Beyond that I have committed more sins than I care to remember. I have repented of them and continue to repent daily, (which repent means to turn and go another way). I have been following the will and way of God for fifty years now, as best as this carnal nature will allow. I slip and fall on a regular basis, then get up and move on.

Conclusion

Let me say here I have zeroed in on one specific type of an egregious sin of mankind, an abomination to God and man. There are however a long string of sins equal to that of homosexuality. It has been my aim here to expose homosexuality for what it really is, because an element of our society in which we live does not accept it as such! My family and myself have known as friends and even relatives whom were either lesbian or homosexuals. We enjoyed interacting with and having them in our home for meals and/or on social occasions. None of them flaunting their sexual orientation or appearing any different than anyone else. In that way it is just another sin among many others. It is God that has placed us all in this carnal condition and it is God whom has always had a plan to bring us all out of it. Make no mistake about it; we are going to have to come out of our sinful nature before we enter into the kingdom of God. We are now, in this physical life going through a symbolic lake of fire (not literal) here on earth. It hurts and can be very painful but it does not kill us. God (again symbolically) will burn up and destroy all unrighteousness within each one of us before we enter into His kingdom. 14 If any man's work abide which he hath built thereupon, he shall receive a reward. 15 If any man's work (the sins against God and man) shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. (1 Corinthians 3:15)

Our God is a consuming fire according to (Hebrews 12:29) For our God is a consuming fire. It is the fire of God that saves, not destroys mankind. The greater the sins and the duration one lives in them, the greater amount of time required in going through the symbolic lake of fire to have them burned from us. It will hurt, it will be emotionally and physically painful, but it will not kill. God has not revealed this to all of His children at this time. There is more to it that we need to understand, but I elect not to go into it in this writing, I am trying to keep my letters shorter that others may find them easier to read and to digest. The bottom line here is this! Jesus Christ is the Savior of all mankind and in fact all of creation. We all will spend eternity being exactly like God and His Son Jesus Christ are now. God, in mankind, is reproducing Himself. We all will be immortal, spirit beings, to have life as They have life. Let us all be encouraged as we look forward to that sure and certain future time.

Your Brother in Christ,
