HOMOSEXUALITY & the likes

HOMOSEXUALITY & the likes:

Except among the Jews, homosexuality (like fornucation, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; envy, murder, deceit, malignity, etc) was not frowned at by many pagan cultures of the ancient world.

Romans 1:28-32

(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 proper; (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, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: (32) Who knowing the judgment of God, that they who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Todays world is only reviving its depraved, pagan, heathenish cultures. It was the Church that pointed out the evil, vileness and folly of homosexuality and other sinful cultural practices to the pagan societies of the nations through the light of the Gospel. This eventually led to such evils becoming abhored, repented from or even criminalised.

The Scriptures talk unambiguously about the divine origin and certainty of Scriptural revelation as against the reprobate and futile (even if intellectual) philosophies (or foolosophies?) of the heathens that produced, propagated and pursued idolatrous religions, homosexual and other vile sexual and inordinate passions, disregard for God and His judgment, and zealous godlessness. A futile mindedness that wants to change even God but would refuse to change any of its inclinations and orientations.

Romans 1:21-28

(21) Because, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish hearts were darkened. (22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (23) And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things. (24) Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: (25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. (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 shameful, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was fitting. (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 proper;

Because the pagans want unbiblical things to be acceptable, so they have to propagate a foundational ideology of no biblical authority and no absolutes. That is deluded denial of reality and can never be true even if the whole world held to it, as they once did before Christ and His Apostle began to put things right. This current move will (take it or leave it) certainly crumble entirely under God’s wrath when the cup is full.

Romans 1:18   For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

    Unless the prohomosexuals do not believe in the bible, but if they do, the bible is very clear about sexual perversions Leviticus 18.

  2. CHAPLAIN says:

    Amen, And St Paul gave details and reasons here in Romans 1:
    (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 shameful, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was fitting

  3. The Rev. Canon Dr. Jack R. Roberts says:

    Unfortunately, such clear misunderstanding of the Biblical texts that fan homophobia and miss Jesus’ inclusive love for all persons no matter whether gay or straight. The context of the comments by Paul and in Leviticus must take into account the context of their time wherein the moral code upheld the sense of community and child rearing in an insecure and minority placed setting as a Jewish or Christian community being under attack by the prevailing culture and oppressive society. Taking two or three scriptural texts to justify any stand that makes homosexuality an anathema is neither theologically sound nor any justification for such a position. This debate should have been over a long time ago.

    • CHAPLAIN says:

      Canon,
      You grossly err not knowing the Scriptures (that condemns homosexuality as unnatural lust and shameful passion) nor knowing the power of God (that is able to transform the homosexual and any sinner for that matter)

    • CHAPLAIN says:

      What is right and legal amongst the Gentiles and heathens is not in any way agreeable to godliness.

      The Church must love, reach out to and help even the most abominable heathen sinner, but must never approve of their abominations.

      Many mix these things up.
      Love is not same as approval,
      Legal or popular is not same as holiness.
      Disapproval is not same as hatred or “phobia”.
      Homosexual temptation is not the same as homosexual iniquity or sin.

      Homosexual practice is sin and sinful, but the Gospel of Christ has power to break its yoke in the life of anyone who believes.

      Homosexual, believe the Gospel and you shall see the saving and transforming power of Christ just like many who have seen and continue to see even as we speak..

    I will pray for you. I hope it works. What is sinful is judging your fellow human. Judge not, lest ye be judged.

    • CHAPLAIN says:

      JUDGE NOT but JUDGE YE.
      John 7:24
      (24) Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

      I find it rather worrisome and even ridiculous that though everyone is judging yet everyone these days is hastening to accuse someone else of judging or evading being accused of judging. This is ridiculous and a big error born out poor knowledge of the Scriptures otherwise it must then be deception, hypocrisy and cheap blackmail:
      Luke 12:56-57
      (56) Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
      (57) Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

      The Christian Faith, contrary to the mistaken impressions of many, is a faith that is UNDER MANDATE TO JUDGE EVERYTHING WE SEE, SAY, HEAR OR DO. There cannot be authentic Christian Faith without necessity to judge what one hears and speaks, sees and does.

      That we do not judge people’s destinies BY OUR OWN IDEAS seems to be commonly mistaken to mean that we should not judge people’s manners, morals, doctrines, decisions, etc BY THE STANDARDS OF THE SCRIPTURES. When you measure issues with God’s Word, you are being careful to test every spirit and prove all things to ascertain what is right from wrong to follow and teach as example.
      1Thessalonians 5:21-22
      (21) Prove all things; hold fast that which is good.
      (22) Abstain from all appearance of evil.
      1John 4:1-3
      (1) Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
      (2) Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God:
      (3) And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.

      When you write-off someone by your own decision (other than God’s Word does) you are wasting your time and adding to things that will be used to judge you in addition to Biblical Standards.
      Matthew 7:1-2
      (1) Judge not, that ye be not judged.
      (2) For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

      Christians have a duty to judge and to teach others to judge after these biblical pattern below and not after worldly ways.
      1Corinthians 10:15
      (15) I speak as to wise men; judge what I say.
      John 7:24
      (24) Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
      1Corinthians 6:1-5
      (1) Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints?
      (2) Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters?
      (3) Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?
      (4) If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church.
      (5) I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?

    • CHAPLAIN says:

      Many misinterpret not judging as permission for licentiousness.
      JUDGING TO TEST all things and all spirits to make choices of right and wrong based on biblical precepts is not the same as JUDGING TO CONDEMN someone into eternal destiny of doom or boon based on our opinions. Actions are not to be replaced by Persons and destinies. EVERYONE WILL BE JUDGED BY THE STANDARDS OF GOD’S WORD WHETHER WE JUDGE OR NOT. But the one who judges oneself with God’s Word will not be judged. So when you judge others with God’s Word, you do them and yourself good.
      1Corinthians 11:31-32
      (31) For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.
      (32) But when we are judged, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.

      Biblical Spirituality is only possible for a heart that is willing to ONLY judge everything by its agreement/disagreement with the precepts of God’s Word as revealed in the Scriptures. Personal or extra-biblical (personal and scrupulous, carnal and heathen) worldviews are of no judging value and so are inconsequential for the Spiritual.
      1Corinthians 2:9-16
      (9) But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.
      (10) But God has revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God.
      (11) For what man knows the things of a man, except the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knows no man, but the Spirit of God.
      (12) Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.
      (13) Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
      (14) But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
      (15) But he that is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.
      (16) For who has known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

  5. CHAPLAIN says:

    The Bible has admonished everyone.
    1Corinthians 6:9-11
    (9) Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites,
    (10) nor covetous, nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor abusive people, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
    (11) And such were some of you! But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.

    Let us encourage one another to heed God’s Word rather than hide under the folly and wickedness of pretending to have no minds to know what is right or wrong:
