Where We Stand on the Lesbian - Gay- BiSexual -Transgender (LGBT) Front
My wife and I were at the debate between this "Gay Christian" and Messianic Christian Rabbi Dr. Michael Brown author of New York Times Best Seller
"A Queer Thing Happened to America"
Will Smith, Actor/Philantropist
-As you know this is a very heated
subject with both sides having vastly different
points of view, being
Messianic Christians ourselves we desire to bring to the forefront the
unchanging Word of God-
Here is what God's unchanging word has to say on the matter and these form the biblical basis for why we choose and believe in heterosexuality in lieu of homosexuality.
1. Leviticus 18:22:
" Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
2. Leviticus 20:13:
"If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination:
... ; their blood shall be upon them."
3. Deuteronomy 23:17:
" There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel."
4. 1 Kings 14:24:
"And there were also sodomites in
the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations
which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel."
5. 1 Kings 15:12:
"And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made."
6. 1 Kings 22:46:
"And the remnant of the sodomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land."
7. Romans 1:26-27:
"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 (their bodies)
that recompense of their error which was fitting."
8. 1 Corinthian 6:9:
"Know ye not that the
unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived:
neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor
abusers of themselves with mankind."
12. 1 Timothy 1:9-10
"Knowing this, that the law is
not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for
the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of
fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 For whoremongers,
for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for
liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is
contrary to sound doctrine;"
choose to add no personal commentary to the above bible references,
they are what they are, state what they state and are eternally
immutable. What we will say is that God is the only perfect and just
Judge. We quote and share his word in print and what is imprinted on our
hearts and conscience.
God is a God of Love and so are the true followers of God.
Forgive us if our presentation appears to be harsh and condemning. It is
not personal but simply our deep love for your eternal soul that drives
us and our love for he who is LOVE and gave himself for us...
