As a fiery Christian teenager, I write this with utmost disappointment and concern for our generation regarding the new ruling in favor of homosexual marriages. Now before you deny me by calling me a “bigot” or a person with no “love and acceptance”, let me tell you exactly where I stand on this issue.
Jesus Christ taught us to love every single person on earth, EVEN our enemies, and that is exactly what I practice, as does any true Christian out there. However, loving the individual person does not mean we have to love the sin they are indulged in.
I love (or at least try my best to love) everyone I meet, pray for ever sinner and love them and hope they will turn to God soon. Liars, thieves, even murderers and adulterers deserve a second chance and the grace of God. But does this mean I love the actions they do? A big NO to that. If I love a murderer and want to bring them back to God, that doesn’t mean I tell them what they’re doing is right. I don’t support the fatal actions of them.
Now to the subject of gay marriage, which in itself should never even be called “marriage”. Why should we Christians not support this unholy practice? Let’s go to the Bible; read with me these verses if you will:
“But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.” (Mark 10:6)
There is a REASON God made man and woman as they were. He created two genders, and claiming to be anything outside of that or going against the will of God when He created marriage between the two is just unholy.
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22)
“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.” (Leviticus 20:13)
These verses pretty much make it plain and clear that God considers lusting against one’s own gender an abomination and definitely a violation of His original design of desire He placed in mankind.
” 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.” (Jude 1:7)
This is STRANGE FLESH!!!! Now keep in mind I am not hating upon anyone, but simply stating the truth about this issue, as stated in the Holy Bible. If you think homosexuality is a recent thing, well think again. This was a problem all the way from Biblical times.
You may read in Genesis, the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. The people there were so wicked that they didn’t even want to spare the two heavenly angels who came to the house of Lot to warn his family.
4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.” (Genesis 19:4-7)
Now anyone who has read the Bible knows clearly what the result of these wicked actions was. God absolutely hates people making a mockery of the sacred, divine relation of marriage that He gifted to us. Marriage is something so beautiful and holy. The best of it is yet to come, when the Bridegroom, the Son of God comes to gather His holy bride, the Church, and sweep her away in the rapture!! ♥
Sodom and Gomorrha was destroyed with fire and brimstone. I hope that pray that doesn’t happen to any other place on earth, but day after day we hear of different societies accepting this as something normal, and it breaks my heart to see the old and traditional values of marriage being destroyed and twisted to the eyes of the coming generations.
Oh, by the way, the fire and brimstone that God rained down from heaven all the way back in those times, has left the place so desolate, that even today, not a single blade of grass grows there. Don’t believe me? Take a look at these modern day pictures of the place!! A Christian archaeologist named Ron Wyatt was led by God to find the areas of Sodom and Gomorrah, and what he found was astounding!!!
Pieces of sulfur were found hidden inside some brimstone :
And here are pictures of the actual (what was once) cities of Sodom and Gomorrah:
Not a single sign of life anywhere! It was quite an amazingly scary story – no, part of history- of the wrath of God, and one that we can only hope will not happen again.
Like I said, I love everyone of you out there, whether or not you are homosexual, whether or not you support it, whether or not you are a sinner or a saint, because that is what Jesus Christ did – He loved every kind of people. But when people are blindly turning against the living God, it is our duty to try to make you see the truth, and the truth here is that God’s will is for one man and one woman to marry, and anything outside of that is unnatural and unholy. It’s what is written in the Bible, and it is what I support, as will any Bible-believing Christian.
There have been studies conducted on whether or not homosexuality is something you are born with, and they have all proven that it is something of choice. There is no “gene” that makes you inclined like that. If you do, however, feel such temptation, if you are a person who thinks you have no control over something like that, I would like to ask you now to ask God to help you come out of it (of course, only if you want to do so..) Search on Youtube, you will be able to find several testimonies of people who have come out of this with the help of Jesus Christ.
Pastors, advise your churches to hold onto God and His morality. Parents, teach your children the righteous path and help them make the right choices in the middle of all this.
We used to say “the end time is near”. It’s time to scratch that and start saying “The end times ARE here!” Things are changing at a rapid pace. Sin is quickly becoming the accepted norm. Believing in the Bible is becoming “foolishness” and “extremism”.
“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” (Isaiah 5:20)
Let us unite in prayer and repent from our own sins so that we may find peace in God, and let us look to the skies and be constantly watching for His return!!
Praise the Lord!! Return soon!!
