My amazing blogger friend, Eldarwen, inspired me greatly by her One Man and One Woman post. If you haven't read it, I strongly encourage you to read it.
Now, I am not posting this to copy what she wrote or offend anyone. Over the last few days though, the wrongness of homo-sexuality has been on my mind and I have decided to post my feelings about it. This is my blog, therefore I have permission to post whatever I want.
There are some people who are homo-sexual and say that God is ok with it. They claim they are Christians, claim that God is ok with it. No, He is not in any way ok with it. Here are a few Bible verses that explain how how He feels about it:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."
Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."
People who are homo-sexual and claim that God is ok with it, are wrong. He is not ok with it.
I recently saw a video on a lady's blog that was about a guy who is gay, but says that he is a Christian. He said in the video that he was praying about his feelings for guys, and said "I just surrendered myself to the Lord...................and God kept me gay." Sorry to burst your bubble, but God did not keep you gay.
Choosing to live that life style is a choice. It is merely a choice. God does not tell people "It is ok to be gay. Go ahead, live that way."
Also in the video, people complain about being alienated, ignored, etc. They made the video sound as if we're just horrible to homo-sexual people and despise them. No, that is not true. Why do they feel 'alienated' and 'ignored'? Well, because some people are probably disgusted with who they have chosen to be. And it is disgusting. It would be completely gross to view two males or two females 'together' in that sort of way.
People also could argue, "Well the Bible also says 'Do not lie' and I'm sure you've told lies before!" Ok, yes, that is true. But, living a homo-sexual lifestyle is living in a world of sin. Telling a lie is not. Though it is not right to lie, it is not just living in a world of sin.
I do not hate people who are homo-sexual at all. I do not at all agree with it, but I do not hate them
You may have a completely different opinion on this subject, but I have mine as well.
