This whole gay thing. Is it naughty or nice? We think it's a fair question. A question practically nobody wants to ask or even think about for fear of thinking themselves unkind or being labeled all sorts of nasty names. Too bad! Anything that impacts individuals and society and law and human posterity and contagious disease and health and education and marriage and family and religion and the immortal soul as much as the gay thing is doing is ignored at our peril.
Let's do a little thinking, and a little truth telling. Let's gather up what the Bible says about the gay thing specifically and undeniably. But first, please note that we do not wish anyone "put to death." Christians do not do as Muslims do. The least thing we want is for them to leave this world in an unrepentant state. We love everyone and want them to have all God wants them to have. We speak against homosexualism because it is wrong and hurts people, and because it is being pushed on society, especially on the young, and because it threatens our way of life and unalienable rights. Also, since Jesus came and fulfilled the law, the Old Testament punishments are done away, such as stoning an adulteress. Homosexual behaviors and the like are still sins but can and must be repented of, continually if need be. Perhaps gays have a death wish themselves as characterized by the extreme risks they take in their lifestyle, which could be interpreted as deeming themselves "worthy of death."
God knows our hearts. We're all sinners who need Christ. The righteous are those who know what sin is and are constantly striving and repenting, relying on Christ. That is nice. The wicked are those who thumb their noses at God and His laws, who deny their sins and revel in them and do not repent. That is naughty.
Here it is in black and white.
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is abomination.
Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with woman both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
Deuteronomy: 23:17 There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.
Romans 1:26-7, 32 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; 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 recompense of their error which was meet. . . who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
1 Corinthians 6-9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.
1 Timothy 1:9-10 Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine.
And there are many many more in all Scripture which speak more generally against all manner of sexual sins.
Let's also point out a few facts about LGBT sexual behaviors. For all we see in public, for all they try to do to whitewash and belittle this perversity, there exists a dark underworld of violence against God and nature. These sexual behaviors are notoriously irresponsible, anonymous, promiscuous, violent, and encouraged and enhanced by pornography, alcohol, and dangerous drugs. Doctors who treat gays could tell you horror stories about the ways these people's poor bodies have been abused. Epidemiologists could tell you how fatal diseases such as HIV/AIDS and anal cancers, in addition to chronic health problems, are direct results of these counterfeit sexual behaviors. Sociologically, these abominable addictive behaviors cause children to dishonor their parents, and spouses and parents to abandon their marriages and children, or at the very least mistreat their spouses and cheat their children of a proper parent. Psychologically, these behaviors may merely be dangerous symptoms of tragic early sexual abuse that is not being addressed. Spiritually, these nihilistic choices lead to hell. Sexual immorality draws you further and further from God.
Is this what we should want for anyone? Does it sound naughty to you?
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in which people wake up and decide to face facts and truly care for the physical and spiritual welfare of themselves and others.
