Now in the Christian church all lusts, rape, adultery, sex outside of marriage, per the Bible now too, is immoral, unacceptable, and was well all human rights abuses are also still unacceptable, whether it is verbal, physical.. God never approves of it neither should any of us.. the public exposure and prosecution of the bad persons serves everyone’s best interest next too.. being kind, nice to bad guys is a waste of time, for they will not change unless they themselves experience real, negative, personal appropriate consequences .. we need to hate all evil, all abuses and to be angry at it too.. we can use the whip to deal with it like Jesus did to chase out the money lenders, commercial business in the temple, Christian Churches solely. Some persons would say that many homosexuals are violent and sexually deviant, but others would rather point out that most of the violent, sexual deviants are heterosexual men harming women, then they next are charged with getting off-topic, but one still can add the reality that anyone who files for divorce, male or female is also a sexual deviant.. according the same Bible. We need to stand against all sins in the church.
In reality all men and women are still born sinners and do act as equal sinners. And thus all unacceptable sins and abuses need to be presented honestly, fairly and equally too and not just as one side bashings of the abortionists, or gays now too.. even in the churches now too. so everyone needs to repent, and to change as well even adulterers, divorcées, gays, lesbians, pornographers, abusers, molesters, thieves, robbers, smokers, alcoholics, drug addicts etc.,
Funny how some people try falsely to discredit Apostle Paul, the one chosen as his Apostle by Jesus Christ himself , even because Paul clearly condemned Judiazers- Jews, divorce, adultery, and homosexuality, all lusts too.. Jesus never abolished the moral laws too, he merely fulfilled the Old testament covenant laws’ demand of death for each one of us, and not the right to now continue falsely in lusts, sins, evil deeds..
(Gal 5:16 KJV) This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh.
(1 Th 4:5 KJV) Not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God:
(2 Pet 2:1 KJV) But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. 2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of. 3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not. 4 For if God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved unto judgment; 5 And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly; 6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha ( gay culture) into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked: 8 (For that righteous man dwelling among them, in seeing and hearing, vexed his righteous soul from day to day with their unlawful deeds 9 The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished: 10 But chiefly them that walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness, and despise government. Presumptuous are they, selfwilled, they are not afraid to speak evil of dignities.
(1 John 2:16 KJV) For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
15 Reasons Why Homosexuality Is Wrong and should not thus be part of any church.
” 1. Homosexuality injures the fabric of society, especially children.
A societal acceptance of same sex relationships gives vulnerable children the impression that same sex relationships are good, moral and healthy. Not only does the Bible condemn such behavior, but medical professionals have affirmed that these kinds of sexual relationships are unhealthy. A society that accepts immoral relationships cause children to stumble into immorality. Jesus Christ said that “if anyone causes one of these little one’s to stumble, (sin) it would be better if he put a mill stone around his neck and throw himself into the sea.” Matthew 18:6 Acceptance of these unnatural acts sets a society up for gender and sexual confusion, which brings about widespread immorality, which tears the family down
2. Homosexuality is anti procreation.
Logically speaking, if everyone’s sexuality was expressed heterosexually, then humanity will survive and perpetuate our own kind for generations to come. But simply put, if everyone’s sexuality was expressed homosexually, we would go extinct. Therefore homosexuality is counter productive to the survival of the human race.
3. Homosexuality does not offer the stability of a traditional family.
Children need the stability of a traditional family. Children need a real male Father and a female Mother for proper and healthy development. Naturally speaking, there is the necessity of each of the male and female contributions to a child’s life. (It has already been proven that boys without fathers end up in jail and practice destructive behaviors a great deal more than those who have fathers.) The vast majority of the public knows instinctively that it would be better if both parents are present in a child’s life. Once concealed research shows that a child who is brought up in a homosexual home may be more likely to engage in homosexuality. But is it loving to expose children to the predominantly damaging lifestyle of homosexuality? If homosexuality can be learned, what does that say about the argument that people are born that way?
4. Homosexuals have a higher incidence of infidelity.
Defining a Homosexual relationship as loving and monogamous ignores the reality of same sex relationships. Many say that the premise on which we should accept same sex unions is that some of them are “loving, monogamous relationships.” Same sex unions may be loving and monogamous from a worldly viewpoint, but if they had “real godly love” they would not subject each other to unnatural sexual activity that leads each other into sin. When we lead others into sin, we are no longer walking in love. In regards to homosexual monogamy, homosexuals remain faithful to one partner about 25% of the time. This is a much lower fidelity rate, than their heterosexual counterparts, which is 80%. It is not unusual for homosexuals to have hundreds of sexual partners in a life time.
Special Note: What kind of stability will be afforded a child who is exposed to that kind of change of a significant other? I also say this against those heterosexuals who also co-habitat, it is unkind to children to expose them to continual relationship changes.
5. Homosexuals have a shortened lifespan.
There is less likelihood that a same sex couple will even be alive to care for their child. One of the reasons that Homosexual couples should not be able to adopt children or take in foster children is that according to many studies, the life span of homosexuals is much lower than that of heterosexuals. These tragic conditions create a much less stable home life for that child. Giving a foster or adopted child to homosexual parents is a form of relational child abuse. The child has been placed in a home in which the parents have an inherent shorter life span.
6. Homosexuals have a much higher incidence of domestic violence.
Children should not be exposed to the higher levels of domestic violence of homosexuals. Another reason that same sex couples should not care for foster or adoptive children is that same sex couples experience much higher levels of domestic violence than their heterosexual counterparts. Some studies show that the rate is at least three times higher than that of heterosexual couples. It seems unkind to force children to be exposed to this higher level of violence.
The book Men Who Beat the Men Who Love Them: Battered Gay Men and Domestic Violence by two homosexual researchers “estimated that 650,000 homosexual men are victims of domestic violence each year, compared to figures from the FBI which showed that last year 1,300 hate crimes were reported.” http://headlines.agapepress.org/archive/3/282001e.asp
Study in China reveals higher incidence of domestic violence with same sex couples.
Compares overall Domestic Violence Rates, and shows rates of violence against gay partners
7. Homosexuals have a much higher rate of molestation than Heterosexuals
As much as 33% of child molestation is committed by homosexuals, and yet they only make up about 3% of our population. To allow homosexual couples to adopt children puts the children at greater risk of molestation.
8. Homosexuality is not condoned in the Bible.
Acceptance of homosexuality in any form whether married or not has never been condoned in the Holy Scriptures of the Bible. There is absolutely no evidence in the 6000 year history of the Holy Bible of the wedding of homosexual couples. Homosexuality is even condemned to the point of receiving the death penalty. Leviticus 20:13 Jesus Christ and the Apostle Paul clearly taught that any immoral act was unacceptable before God. Popular opinion cannot change the fact that any immoral acts are an affront to the holy nature of God and His design. Those who are involved in these things are actually under the judgment of God. Romans 1:22-27, 32. 1Timothy 1:8-11 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-11
The passage by Paul the Apostle in Romans 1:22-27 is without a doubt a condemnation of same sex relations as it describes those who burn with passion for the same sex..
Homosexuality is condemned in the first and last books of the Bible, (Genesis 19:4-7 and Revelation 21:8, 22:15) which shows there is a consistent message throughout the entire Bible that condemns that kind of behavior. That would explain why there is not one incident of homosexual marriage in the Bible. And lest anyone put a broad stamp of approval of all heterosexual sexual relationships, heterosexual sexual relations are only acceptable within the bonds of marriage. Having sex outside of marriage with the opposite sex is equally abhorrent to God’s holiness and design for the family.
Special note: Paul says in 1 Corinthians 6:11 that “such were some of you, denoting the fact that some of those caught in adultery or homosexuality were able to overcome it, by the power of Christ! Forgiveness is available to anyone who is willing to repent (turn completely around) and put their faith in Christ for salvation. Jesus Christ indeed died for the sins of the homosexual that they might be saved.
9. Homosexuals want to redefine marriage, changing the uniqueness of heterosexual marriage.
The homosexual community does not just want acceptance for same sex marriage, they want to redefine marriage. Should it not seem odd that the definition of the institution of marriage, as being between a man and woman, for the past 6000 years is being thrown out for something less than what is natural and stable? The agenda of same sex marriage proponents is to redefine marriage altogether which undermines the most stable form of marriage as being between one man and one woman.
10. Homosexual marriages will lead to other “unnatural” unions
Defining marriage as acceptable when it is simply ‘loving and monogamous’ is highly problematic and leads to gross immorality. If we allow “loving and monogamous” relationships to be the standard by which we measure a legitimate marriage then I suppose that women could marry their horses or men could marry their pet dogs. This opens the door for any number of illegitimate relationships, including 52 year old men marrying 10 year old girls, brothers marrying sisters and mothers marrying sons. The movement for bestiality, which is sex with animals, has already defined their relationships to their animals based on the very language of the homosexual movement, that theirs is an alternative lifestyle and that their relationships are loving and monogamous. But lists these kinds of sexual relationships as a grave sin in Leviticus 18:22-23. Interestingly, the sin of homosexuality is listed just before the sin of bestiality in that passage.
Same sex marriage opens up a wide door of acceptance for any kind of marital relationship which is damaging to the sanctity of marriage. Whereas real love in its purest form as defined in 1 Corinthians 13:6, does not rejoice in unrighteousness.
11. Homosexual marriage is not a “right”.
Keeping same sex couples from marrying is not discrimination. Keeping same sex couples from marrying is keeping them from discriminating against what is normal. Anymore than I feel discriminated against because I cannot marry my sister. Discrimination based on good judgment is a protection for the stability of society and the upholding of unalterable morals. A government allowing them to marry would be endorsing the unnatural. Equal protection under the law was never meant to protect the enjoyment of what is immoral or harmful.
Equal protection regarding marriage means that anyone, who is a single, adult, can marry another single adult person of the opposite sex as long as it is not their relative. Besides, sexual orientation is only a behavior and not a fixed condition like race. No one would agree that you can change your race, because that is something that is strictly defined by your genes. Whereas there are tens of thousands who have overcome their same sex lifestyle to live out their lives the way God created them to be heterosexuals. To give an immoral behavior a protected status or special rights makes society a proponent of that behavior, thus harming society as a whole.
12. Homosexual relationships are dangerously unhealthy.
Same sex relations deny some of the most basic fundamentals of proper mechanical applications of using their genitalia. Anal sex and lesbian sex is a misuse of what sexual relations were primarily intended to produce, children and intimacy solely between a man and a woman. Doctors agree that anal sex is a dangerous, unhealthy form of sexual contact as the anal cavity was not intended for that kind of use. Therefore, even with heterosexual couples this activity is not safe.
13. God did not intend for same sex relationships to exist.
Genesis 2:18-24 says that after God created Adam, He decided to take a rib out of Adam so that Adam might have someone who was “suitable for him.” (v.18).The word in the Hebrew is “neged” which means a “counterpart or opposite”, for Adam. Even the word heterosexual implies an intentional joining of two different parts that are meant to go together. ‘Hetero’ in the Greek language means “the other of two.”
14. Homosexuality is not genetic.
Homosexuals are not born homosexual as studies of identical twins confirm this fact. Studies have shown that identical twins could each have different sexual orientations, thus showing that homosexuality has little if anything to do with genetics. On the average, when one identical twin is homosexual, the other twin is homosexual 38% of the time. This does not give much credence to the popular notion that homosexuality is genetic.
Even if there were a predisposition to a given behavior, this should not mean that one has license to practice that behavior. Predispositions to alcoholism, adultery, drugs, pornography or even homosexuality have more to do with our sin nature. All of these behaviors have been shown to be controlled by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, by denying our self and having the power of the Holy Spirit in one’s life. This fact has been confirmed in the myriad of testimonies of those who were saved in Christ from their sinful life of homosexuality. Those who affirm that it is just their nature or that they were born that way are only admitting that they are controlled by their sin nature and do not know how to be freed or do not want to be freed.
It is truly tragic that so many homosexuals are in bondage to that vice because they have accepted that lie that they were born that way. The only way their claim holds true is the same reason it holds true for me. We are all born sinners who need salvation and healing.
15. Homosexuals should not be given benefits of marriage.
Same sex couples should not be rewarded with the benefits of marriage, because immoral behavior should not be rewarded. It is not a matter of rights or fairness, if the act is immoral, why should that be praised or rewarded? Most do not think that adulterers or fornicators should be rewarded alimony or benefits. Should any sin be tolerated or promoted with benefits? Those who want the benefits of marriage should comply with the intent of the Creator that intended only marriage, between one man and one woman. Feelings for fairness do not determine what is right or moral or you will have moral anarchy. The reason heterosexual married couples are rewarded benefits is that society recognizes this as the best kind of relationship for stability and perpetuation of human kind.
Special note to my readers:
It is not my intention to be harsh or hateful. My intention is to give what I believe to be sound reasons as to why same sex relationships are highly problematic for society and as well as sinful before our Maker whom we will have to give an account.
I do not ignore the fact that having a same sex attraction could be a very difficult practice to overcome. I am convinced that if one truly wants to put away the sin of homosexuality that they can overcome it. But it is best if it is by the grace and Spirit of God through the gospel of Christ. It is also imperative that one find a Bible believing church that will help you live a pure life in Christ.
There are some others, caught in the web of addiction to porn, drugs and other behaviors that may also have to fight for the rest of their lives to over come the flesh and the devil. But I am also convinced that all things are possible with God and that those who walk by the Spirit will put to death the deeds of the flesh. I too must struggle against my sinful nature each day, understanding that I am just like Paul who said, “who will deliver me from this body of death?!” Romans 7:24
I too must walk by the Spirit to remain pure for my wife. I too must be accountable in my church and receive proper instruction and exhortation from my brothers and sisters in the Lord.
We all need to find a loving and godly church that gives fellow believers great encouragement to continue on. My hope is that those who are trying to get out of the homosexual lifestyle will know that I salute them and want them to not go through their struggle alone.
Lean heavily on the body of Christ to begin to practice a life of celibacy and holiness all to the glory of God. I am not here to cast stones at you, but I wanted to warn you like a friend, I want you to fall on the Rock of Christ for salvation! For Jesus Christ came to save sinners like you and I. We all desperately need help and healing!!
“For God so loved the world, (that includes you and me) that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him (trusts in Him completely) will not perish, (come under the righteous judgment of God) but have everlasting life. (To know God and be in His presence forever)

All black’s, white, Jews, gays, Arabs, Muslims, natives, anyone else.. has a right to live peacefully without verbal or physical abuses. We also all strive for acceptance of others, gays included, but when adulterers or the gays are next trying for Biblical acceptance of their undeniable immoral lifestyle, they certainly have gone to far.. they can never have it.. need to give upon at this absurdity. One thing is very very apparent to me is how so many people do even lie in their support of gay marriages.. and specially they twist Bible verses out of context.. and even refer to other distorted Bible passages that are unrelated.. only foolish persons would try to do that because any knowledgeable Bible scholar can see still their ignorance of the Bible.. so next they basically still have a problem with the Bible so they next falsely try to discredit that as well.. and in the process offend more religious persons and win even less religious support too. When clearly any naive person is so foolish to say next that Apostle Paul does not represent Jesus views, when Jesus had personally selected apostle Paul, that same persons shows his own total ignorance now of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, the Bible.. and what he still wants the Christian’s, Biblical support for the gays.. dream on.. HE OR SHE WILL NEVER NEVER EVER GET IT.. THAT IS THE REALITY! SO LIVE WITHOUT IT
We still cannot force anyone, gays included to believe like we do, to live like we do as well, for they have their own free will, rights too, but in love we can try to use our free speech right and tell them how the Bible sees their behavior too..
