Blog Forty-One After Salvation, How Shall We Live? Part Eleven
Does the Scriptures mention homosexuality?
Absolutely, there is no new sin under the sun. Satan has always thrown out a strategy to tempt the youth of every generation to do something that is daring and shocking that he hopes will catch on and become a fade to try and destroy as many lives as possible while they are in their innocent youth.
Some youthful fades have been less harmful things like neon hair colors, tattoos, huge rings in the ears and all sorts of body-piercings. Then there are more harmful fades; as smoking, drugs and drinking alcohol.
But in recent years, homosexuality, bisexual and lesbianism has been flaunted before our youth by Hollywood media as well as politics and news media trying to give equal freedoms to same sex couples. Some states have given the right for same sex couples to adopt and raise children having two moms or two daddys.
Most child counselors would tell you this was an unhealthy atmosphere for the wellbeing of children; except the very liberal councilor who told the parents of a 5 year old to tell his brothers and sisters to change the adjectives from he, his and him to: she and her, while continuing to dress him like a girl with long hair.
According to a news interveiw, the parents decided one of their twin boys was gay at the age of three; just because he wanted to play with his older sister and her toys. When he started to school, he wanted to go into the girl’s rest room, which was out of limits, due to the complaints of all the parents of the girls at this school. So the school let him go into the teachers restroom until they built a bi-sexual restroom; for kinder garter?
More and more these stories are arising, could this be child abuse ‘mentally and emotionally’ for adults to decide and brain-wash these kids toward homosexuality while they are just babies?
The modern day liberal media is moving farther and farther away from the civilized moral society and culture that America once was. Some public schools have required reading books in home room first and second grades which were confined to that room. These books have stories of families with same sex parents, to bring acceptance and commonality to children at very young ages.
It is obvious that grade schools and universities today don’t teach much on occupational education, but are trying to abort all Bible moral views and force their liberal, atheist view with no morals on our youth. Colleges have been at this for the past 20 years, producing more liberal parents as well as more liberal teachers who teach in America’s Junior and High Schools today.
I appreciate and honor every Christian Teacher today in our public and private Schools. We pray for you to be blessed and strengthened by the Holy Spirit, for your job is very valuable to God and His call and purpose. I know your job is not easy. This is all the more reason and need for parents, Sunday school teachers, Youth leaders and Pastors to teach the pure principles of Scripture as a way of life. How will they know right from wrong, without the guidance of a spiritual leader?
I am so thankful for my Godly Parents, who never failed to take us to church and teach us at home by their principles and way of serving Jesus in daily life. The statistics say about 75% of all our Christian youth leave the church after High School. How can this be? I think we have failed them. I don’t judge this generation, they are a product of our neglect. Our children need to be lead to Jesus Christ at very young ages and need to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ throughout childhood and teen years, so they would not waver in their faith through college years.
What do the Scriptures say about this "lust gone wrong"? These Scriptures speak of mankind leaving the natural affection of one man and one woman: Because of Man’s free will to rebel against God’s guidelines; laws and rules for healthy productive living, (God is bound to His Law of Free Will and Sowing and Reaping) He has to give men and women up to the uncleanness of their own heart and they become a reprobate mind who do these lustful acts:
Rom 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 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.
Rom 1:26 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:
Rom 1:27 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.
Rom 1:28 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;
Rom 1:29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, (the judgment of The Law of Sin and Death) that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
This means if we except and condone; agreeing with their sin or having pleasure in others doing these things, our sin is as great as theirs. But this doesn’t mean we can judge these people. We are to judge no one. In the very next chapter of Romans, if we judge those who do these things, we have sinned. So as we live and work beside those who do these sins we must love them and not judge them, even though we don’t agree with their life style of lust gone wrong. Satan has been at work since Adam and Eve fell into sin and made him the prince of this world. But with every temptation from evil there is a way of escape through the power given to us to flee from lust through Calvary: Jesus Christ.
