HOMOSEXUALITY

By Dr. F.X.Muttoo

When God created the human race, He made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. He knew that man would one day procreate the world, and consequently, He made two different human beings to accommodate this form of population. Unfortunately, man being born in sin, abused the form
of cohabitation that God intended. He fell into gross, sinful habit of enjoying a deviant lifestyle – beastly, and sinful – breaking the law of God, and following after the lusts of his physical sexual appetite.

When He created the world, He established a fundamental distinction within the human race, reflected in the human body –‘”MALE AND FEMALE CREATED He them.”Gen.1:27; 5:2. It was definitely God’s plan for sexual relations to be in the form of man-woman union, man and wife becoming “one flesh.” Gen.2:24.

Judgment of God was poured out upon two cities – Sodom and Gomorrah, for such forms of sexual behaviour Gen. 19:4-5, 12-13), as was clearly prohibited in Scripture in Lev. 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood
shall be upon them.”

The Apostle Paul listed homosexuals among the “unrighteous,” who would not inherit the Kingdom of God:” 1Cor. 6:9. He declared that the wrath of God will attend all those who practice homosexuality or lesbianism.

Paul also pointed out the judgment of God upon those who are homosexuals. In Romans 1: 24 – 32. “ Wherefore God also gave them up to
uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 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; and likewise also the man, 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. …………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.”

The prophet Isaiah says: “ Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for
sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their sight!” Isaiah 5: 20 – 21.

We are in the last days, for sure. Paul, writing to Timothy declares: “ This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, truce breakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: From such turn away.” 2Tim. 3: 1- 5.

Now, while the above is true, do remember, that, anyone who repents, will be forgiven by God. It is, therefore, imperative that we pray for those who are entrapped by such a perverted alternative life-style.
