Homosexuality and the Church

Political correctness is admittedly out of control in our country. I don't think anyone who finds themselves here would argue against that. Unfortunately, it has not only entered in to the "Church", but has conquered large portions of it. Political correctness is worldly...carnal...fleshly, and not Godly.

An abomination is something that is hateful to God. Actually, in looking at the definition in almost any resource, you see that it is "disgusting, loathsome." God is the same yesterday, today and forever. His nature is eternal. His attitudes are eternal. Anything contrary to His nature will always be contrary to His nature.

An old testament abomination will always be an abomination to God, because He can't change. He doesn't need to. We need to change, or repent, to come in to alignment with God's outlook. He gives the gift of the Holy Ghost to the repentant.

Acts 2: 38. Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
39. "For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.''
40. And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, "Be saved from this perverse generation.''

Lets look at some abominations to see if we can agree that these are still loathsome and disgusting and should be considered contrary to the nature of God... and the church.

Deut. 18: 9. When thou art come into the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations.
10. There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Offering our children as burnt sacrifices to a pagan god...yeah that's obviously abominable. Using spiritualists/tarot/fortune tellers, etc. a lot of "Christians" have been suckered into thinking these are OK, but they are generally understood by mature Christians as abominable. The "supernatural" obsession of TV, movies, and books without God as the focus, is satanic and deceiving many into deeper darkness. People need to wake up!

Prov. 6: 16. These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:
17. A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,
18. An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,
19. A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Can at least the church agree that these things are detestable?
Then look at this:

Levi. 18: 21. And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the Lord.
22. Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
23. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion.

Homosexuality and bestiality are both becoming protected "alternative lifestyles" by our government! So will pedophilia and necrophilia if this government isn't stopped in it's downward moral spiral. Also please note that there is a reason Christians claim that homosexuality is on the same level with bestiality. They get that from the Word of God.

How has this happened? How is it that such a small percentage of the population can control our government so completely? Homosexuals claim to be 10% of the population, but realistically they are only numbered at about 2-3 %. 4% self identified themselves as homosexual on exit polling during the 2008 Presidential election, according to wikipedia. If you consider that many straights didn't vote, and homosexuals were more politically motivated, the numbers can be questioned. Even if they are completely accurate, 4% of the population should NOT be dictating policy to 96%!

What is the real political force behind this? What small percentage of highly placed political people are reputedly aligned with homosexuality? The Roman Catholic Church. Wait, don't freak out yet. Roman Catholic Fr. Cozzen has written a book, praised by many Roman clerics as being one of the most important books to come out in years regarding to condition of the priesthood, called "The Changing Face of the Priesthood”. In this book he estimates the percentage of homosexual priests may be as high as 60%. Jesuits have their fair share of this percentage. Do your own Google search and see for yourself. I'm not just making this stuff up because I have an axe to grind with Roman Catholicism. I hate the false religion for all kinds of reasons. This is just one of them.

Seminary applicants have dropped drastically in recent years; older priests have dropped out to marry, so the percentage rises. The priesthood is being seen as a bastion of homosexuality, perversion all over the world. The millions of dollars paid out to victims of the priesthoods preying on young boys has become fodder for comedians. The practice of shuffling perverted priests and hiding them from scrutiny is too well known to deny. It was never a glamorous job, but the truly dedicated are being marginalized out by the mother organization.

According to the Associated Press Jan. 2000, several hundreds of priests have died of AIDS.
This tragedy was caused by the Roman Catholic Canon Law that forbids priests to marry.

1Tim.4:1. Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
2. Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
3. Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

This devilish perversion, of homosexuality invading "Christianity" has grown beyond the RCC and has now invaded most of "Christendom". Queer folk want it all. They want to stay queer, but be regarded as normal. 4% falls far short from being in the normal range in anything. As a Christian, you either follow God's will,or you follow your own will. Following your own will drops you from following God's will. You can't have the world, and have God, too.

1 John 2: 15. Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16. For all that is in the world the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life is not of the Father but is of the world.

Evangelical Lutheran Church of America: OK for non-celibate homosexuals to serve as clergy-NYTimes Aug.22, 2009

Presbyterian: OK gay clergy June 28, 2008 per LA Times

Episcopal church- US branch 2003, OK gay clergy

Methodists still holding out, BUT…acknowledge they have retained an openly lesbian minister without censure.

So, is the New Testament silent on the subject as many claim? "Jesus never condemned homosexuality" they say. Jesus was Jehovah of the Old Testament. If Jehovah said it ...Jesus said it. See my posts on the godhead. The apostles continued the message as close as any could without error.

New Testament:

Rom. 1: 16. For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17. For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19. Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21. Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23. And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25. Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
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.
28. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29. Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30. Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31. Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: 32. 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.

Christians need not be arrogant and/or self-righteous in this matter. The next chapter slams the self-righteous pretty well. But, we need to recognize that sin is sin, God's word reveals homosexuality is sin, and unrepented sin isn't covered by grace!

Read God's word regarding the leaders of Sodom and their attempt at treading on both sides of the fence:

Isaiah 1: 10. Hear the word of the Lord, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
11. To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the Lord: I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts; and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
12. When ye come to appear before me, who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
13. Bring no more vain oblations; incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths, the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with; it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
14. Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth: they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
15. And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.

If you find yourself in a church that has lapsed, and you still believe the word of God is to be loved and obeyed, you should probably leave to find a church that still teach all the full council of God. I would recommend an Apostolic Pentecostal assembly, but that's just me.
