Welcome back to the amazing blogging experience of ‘Nathan Tune’ thank you for joining me today and I would first like to point out that this post’s intention is not whether one supports someones right to marry a person of the same sex in a legal sense, but rather if one supports the actual lifestyle of the homosexual, now I beg you to proceed with extreme caution or not proceed at all for I will not sugar coat the biblical truth.
So the question that lies before us ‘Is homosexuality wrong?’ anyone that portrays themselves as a ‘true’ follower of Jesus Christ would have to answer yes to this very straightforward question without the slightest hint of hesitation, now wouldn’t they? Why yes, they would, so why is it that they don’t? Another very interesting question as well, is it because people are afraid to open up about their faith, or is it because they don’t want to harm others feelings and they feel if they say something so unpopular with most of the worlds view then they won’t be liked by anyone anymore, could that be it?
Perhaps that’s what it could be, but regardless of the reason, when we purposely refuse to stand up for God’s truth whether they be from lack of knowledge in his word or from sheer ignorance or whatever the cause may be. What we are really doing is actually denying Jesus our Lord himself, and I have mentioned this theory many times and it’s not very easy for one to argue with because in scripture we are told if we do love God with everything in us then we will keep his commandments, scripture also tells us that he is the word and he is the full truth, and if we in any way deny him then he will indeed deny us on judgement day.
Is that even possible for such a loving, kind, graceful God, full of mercy and forgiveness to turn us away without even one single care at all is it really a possibility? Well it is, and most likely he really won’t turn away from us, we will turn away from him, and he will care about our lost souls very much and he will weep that we chose the way of the world but he gives us many chances to commit ourselves fully to him and if we miss out then it is only the fault of our own selves.
The New Testament Isn’t Against It –
It can so often be said by believers and non-believers alike that are in support of ‘gay marriage’ (whatever that is) that Jesus Christ or the New Testament ever really speaks about Homosexuality and never does it once say that it is wrong, people have also compared it with consuming shrimp, but that is just ridiculous. Is it worse than other sins? Yes it is and no it isn’t, here’s how that question can be answered simply and with biblical foundation, in scripture it tells us that all sin is the same in one sense, it will all lead us to death and hell if we do not turn from it, yet at the same time it tells us something else, it tells us that some sins deserve a worse punishment than others.
- And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female
- And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?
- Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. – Matthew 19:4-6 KJV
- 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 recompence of their error which was meet. – Romans 1:27-28 KJV
(These being a few verses to say the least, Jesus goes into more detail explaining the importance of Holy Matrimony between a ‘man’ and of a ‘woman’)
It is also said in the bible that on that day when Jesus comes back he will inflict blows upon the wicked and some will receive worse hits than others because of the intensity of their sin, meaning that each sin being the same in leading us to hell is also very different in how big of the offense it actually is to God, stealing something from someone isn’t as big of an offense as murdering someone, and so on and so forth, but yes even though these sins may be worse than others in a punishable term of a legal sense, they all will lead us to hell and they are all sins that we can be forgiven by, that is the good news and that is why I am so dedicated in telling his truth, that is why I insist on speaking about what others refuse to speak about.
That is why I will stand and say that YES, given biblical proof from what has been since the beginning of time I will have to say, YES it is in fact wrong, Homosexuality is wrong and it goes against nature, it is unnatural in every sense of the way because it defies everything that we were designed to be as a society. In the words of Hillary Clinton (bet you thought you’d never hear me say that, neither did I) in 2004 this was her take on the issue and it is still mine to this day:
“I believe that marriage is, not just a ‘bond’ but a sacred ‘bond‘ between a ‘man‘ and a ‘woman‘. I have had ‘occasion’ in my life to defend marriage, to stand up for marriage. To believe in the hard work and challenge of marriage. So I take umbrage at anyone who might suggest that those of us who worry about amending the constitution are less committed to the sanctity of marriage or to the fundamental bedrock principal, that it exists between a man and a woman going back into the midst of history.” – Hillary Clinton 2004
That was one whopper of a quote now wasn’t it? Interesting how times can change and that’s OK, whether or not she actually believed that I still believe it, I believe that was a wonderful statement. It certainly was full of garbage and lies, maybe not, but today it sure looks that way, with so many people turning on what they once believed it now seems normal for people to be weak and feeble in their beliefs, but here is what we must do, we must be bold.
Given the scriptural proof we have learned that not only is Homosexuality wrong in the eyes of a Holy God, the Old Testament or in that of the New Testament, it is absolutely unthinkable in every way. Now does this mean that it is OK to mistreat people who ‘choose’ to live this type of lifestyle, of course that isn’t what it means and I don’t think that is what I have done here and I most certainly do not think that Jesus would be approving of that. You see, there is a difference in ‘accepting’ the sin and ‘accepting’ the sinner, do you accept the sin or the sinner? You can love someone without supporting their sin.
I’m sure that you do it all the time without even realizing it, the bottom line is we as Christians can not allow these worldviews to get in the way of what we believe. We can not allow ourselves to be overcome with evil rather we must overcome evil with good and to do this we must be in his word daily and we must stand strong in it, if we are so quick to deny God over something as small as hurting peoples feelings over what his truth actually says then what is going to happen when they have a blade to our necks yelling at us to deny Jesus or die, what happens then?
We must not bow, bend, break or let them take what it is that no man can shake, and that is our faith.
Until next time…
