The deception of satan: Christians don’t hate homosexuals
By Dr. Eric N. Haley
Are you tired of how often the news media portray Christians as hating homosexuals? This is one of the current trends in social media; that Satan has parlayed Christians as hating homosexuals. Jesus said in the gospel of John 13:35, “By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.” Christians love everybody and all races. However, a disciple is a follower. A follower of Jesus Christ is also a witness for Jesus.
It is Christians’ duty to let homosexuals know that homosexuality is a sin to God. The Bible points this out in numerous places. I’ll list a few in the Old Testament and New Testament: Leviticus 18:22, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is an 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.”
First Corinthians chapter six list all kinds of sexual sins. I 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.”
Whereas all sin is bad, sexual sins carry their own type of punishment: I Corinthians 6:18 reads, “Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.”
Fornication is all kinds of sex outside of the marriage bond. Yes, God designed sex to be enjoyed within the bonds of holy matrimony. (Hebrews 13:4) “Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whore mongers and adulterers God will judge.”
Genesis 2:24 describes the first marriage, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” All sex outside of marriage is considered wrong ( a sin in God’s eyes.) As followers of Jesus Christ (disciples) we are commanded by Jesus to tell the truth in love. Jesus said in Matthew 28:18-20, “…All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by God in Genesis because five judges approved of homosexuality in five cities of the plain. Remember on June 26, 2015, our United States Supreme approved of same sex marriage in all 50 states. This was a mandate directly opposed by God in the Bible. The Bible further explains that God brought judgement of Sodom and Gomorrah and again in I Corinthians 10:8, where he killed twenty-three thousand that committed fornication to be for our example so that any societies reading the Bible would not repeat the same mistake. I Corinthians 10:11 explains, “Now all these things happened unto them for our example: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.”
The same judgement that God did to Sodom and the example in I Corinthians can happen to the United States. So remember homosexuals, Christians are not being mean when they witness to you about what the Bible says about homosexuality.
Christians are sharing what the gospel of Jesus Christ says to you out of love and duty to God’s command.
Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian principles. George Washington said,“ It is impossible to rightly govern a nation with God and the Bible.” Abraham Lincoln is credited with saying, “In regards to this great book, (referring to the Bible), it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this book.”
The question I ask the reader, “Has America reached the point of no return? Will God take his hedge of protection away from America?” Remember just because you have the legal right to practice homosexuality, doesn’t make it right in God’s eye. Something to think about.
