The other day I came across a news feed of a live gay pride parade promoting the lifestyle. There was some comments in the feed about how God’s love for the Gay people. They were using the scriptures about God’s love, and twisting them to say this lifestyle was okay and approved by God. It is true that God loves us all, but God hates a sinful lifestyle. To understand this a little more, think of your son or daughter committing a gruesome murder. Even though they committed this murder your love for them is never ending. You hate what they did, but still love them. God Loves in the same way… He loves you but hates a sinful lifestyle!
God’s word, the Bible, it’s very clear about the Sin homosexuality. This is sin just like any other sin. And God hates sin. In Leviticus 18:22 says – “You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.” and we find the penalty for this sin in Leviticus 20:13, “If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltiness is upon them.” Wow… punishment is the death penalty!
In the first chapter of Romans, Paul was describing the way the world has turned away from God and embraced idolatry and other sins. Romans 1:26-27 says, “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.” In this verse we clearly see that homosexuality is wrong and sinful.
Remember this…. Sin Separates us from God. And 1st Corinthians 6 verse 9 reads “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 effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.”
God loves all people, and will forgive every sin. It is by the grace of God that we are forgiving. No matter what you’ve done in your past God’s grace is big enough to forgive you. All that’s necessary for you to do, is to ask God for forgiveness.
