You are aware of the recent events involving homosexuality. A few are trying to force the rest of us to accept it as a normal behavior, one on par with heterosexuality. This is nothing new. For many years homosexuals have pushed for main-stream status. They even changed the name of themselves from “homosexual” and “sodomite” to “gay,” a word that conveys happiness. Despite their desire to be acceptable, the Bible still says they are sinners.
The Holy Spirit revealed that neither “homosexuals, nor sodomites…will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 6:9-10). He also stated that their behavior is “against nature” (Rom. 1:26-27). In other words, it is unnatural for two men or two women to have sexual relations with one another. It is contrary to God’s design. He made a woman for a man; Eve for Adam, not Steve for Adam (Gen. 2; Mk. 10:6-8).
Peter, by inspiration, said that God turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah to ashes not only because of their sin, but also to serve as “an example to those who afterward would live ungodly” (2 Pet. 2:6). Those who are sexually immoral, including homosexuals, “shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone” (Rev. 21:8). In other words, it is still a sin that God will punish by casting those who are guilty into the pit of hell.
Friends, let us not accept Satan’s attempt to legitimize another sin. Let us stand on what the Bible teaches — homosexuality is still a sin.
