[Okay, before I begin I need to say that I have deliberately avoided this topic because every time I mention it I’m bitterly attacked by everyone. No matter what I say about it I’m called a hate monger and homophobic. I am not homophobic, and I don’t hate the gays. But I’ve been feeling lead to write this post for months. I’ll be sticking with the New Testament, as every time I use the Old Testament people point out that the rest of the Law of Moses says things slavery is good and that rape victims have to marry their attacker. We’re not under the Law of Moses anymore, so I won’t be using that.]
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: 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.
I’m always hearing that homosexuality isn’t a sin because it’s not mentioned in the New Testament, which is the Law we’re under now. Well, the links in this sentence will disprove that right away.
So clearly homosexuality is a sin, because it says it right there very clearly in the New Testament, where it’s always taught never brings it up. Now I want to bring your attention to another verse. This one is very important and I rarely see Christians talking about it.
2 Therefore thou art inexcusable, O man, whosoever thou art that judgest: for wherein thou judgest another, thou condemnest thyself; for thou that judgest doest the same things.
I deliberately chose Romans 1:26-27 as the opening verse. Because a few verses later Paul tells us not to judge anyone or else we condemn ourselves. It’s not our place to tell people they are going to hell because of this or that. Here’s another verse I never see talked about among Christians.
7 Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
So basically, accept everyone as Jesus accepted us. This proves that all the homophobia you see in the church is very unbiblical. We’re called to love everyone.
34 A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. 35 By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.
Yeah, Jesus didn’t stutter. This verse and Romans 2:1 prove that things like homophobia and racism and sexism and anything like those are very unbiblical.
Besides, it doesn’t matter if homosexuality is a sin because all sins are forgiven through faith in Jesus Christ.
