They Are Proud To Be Damned Homosexuals
By: Brian A. Yeager
A college football player, about to turn Pro, said this: "I am an openly, proud gay man” (Michael Sam; http://espn.go.com/blog/sec/post/_/id/79395/michael-sam-says-hes-gay). There is a website for “out and proud celebrities” (http://www.pinterest.com/theinsider/out-proud-23-proudly-gay-celebs/). There is a website teaching people how to be gay and, “being proud of who you are” (http://www.wikihow.com/Accept-That-You-Are-Gay). I’d blow your mind with more quotes but, frankly, it makes me want to puke when I read this garbage.
Homosexuality is being celebrated proudly in our country. Those who speak out against this sinful behavior are vilified. The federal government, that we pay for through our tax dollars, is fighting FOR homosexuals even to the point of overriding state laws. Notice: “I am confirming today that, for purposes of federal law, these marriages will be recognized as lawful and considered eligible for all relevant federal benefits on the same terms as other same-sex marriages, said Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. in an unusual video announcement on the Justice Department website. These families should not be asked to endure uncertainty regarding their status as the litigation unfolds” (http://www.nytimes.com/2014/01/11/us/politics/same-sex-marriage-utah.html?_r=0).
Back in February I was listening to ESPN and getting sick at how many people said they would welcome “gays” into their sport. A football player for the Pittsburgh Steelers, in regard to Michael Sam, said he’d “welcome him with open arms” (Antonio Brown; ESPN; February 17th, 2014). The world declares that gay people have the right to happiness. Why don’t child molesters and peeping toms get the same rights? After all, they are just looking to do what makes them happy. There is no difference between liars, homosexuals, murderers, child molesters, etc. in the eyes of the Almighty (James 2:10-12, I John 5:17, and Revelation 21:8).
Let me be clear in saying that, God as well as I, want these homosexuals to repent and be saved (I Timothy 2:4 and II Peter 3:9). This article has two intentions. The first is, that all will know that homosexuality is sinful and they need to change or they will perish (cf. Luke 13:3). The second goal of this article is to raise the voice of truth about this damnable behavior, since the majority of our society seems to have embraced it or are at least afraid to say otherwise. Let’s start by showing that God is not pleased with homosexuality.
Homosexuality Is Not By God’s Design
God made man upright and man failed from that point on our own (Ecclesiastes 7:29). God’s design for sexual relations was between a man and a woman (Genesis 2:18-25). Marriage is to be between a man and a woman (Matthew 19:3-6). Children are supposed to be raised by a mother and a father (Ephesians 6:1-4).
When humanity decided to leave the natural design of the relationship that is supposed to exist between a man and a woman, those people sinned. Notice: “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. 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 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 that recompence of their error which was meet. 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 convenient” (Romans 1:18-28).
God destroyed nearly the whole populations of Sodom and Gomorrah over the sin of homosexuality (Genesis 18:16-19:29). God did not take the stand that they deserved to be happy. He destroyed them. He calls homosexuality an “abomination” (Leviticus 18:22). Under the Law of Moses, God had homosexuals put to death (Leviticus 20:13). Homosexuals should be thankful that, under the New Testament Law of Christ, they have the opportunity to repent of their sins and be saved (Acts 3:19). What homosexuals should not think is that being under the Law of Christ means they’ll be saved in their sinful state (Jude 7 and II Peter 2:6). Yet, even though these Scriptures are clear, those in bed with homosexuality (literally and figuratively) will just call you a homophobe for saying these things.
Am I A Homophobe?
Yes, I am “a person who hates or fears homosexual people” in a godly manner. I have the mindset that God wants me to have toward homosexuality AND all other sinful behaviors (Psalms 119:104, Psalms 119:128, Psalms 119:163, Psalms 139:21-22, Amos 5:15, Romans 12:9, I Peter 3:10-11, and Revelation 2:6). Let me be clear in stating that you CANNOT separate the sin from the sinner (Jeremiah 4:1, Matthew 7:16, Matthew 7:20, John 5:28-29, and II Corinthians 5:10). Sin would not exist without sinners (Romans 14:23, James 1:14-15, James 4:17, and I John 3:4). Therefore, Christians are what the world calls “homophobes”.
As said early in this article, I share with God a desire to see homosexuals (and all sinners) repent. However, if they choose to be “proud” of their sinful behavior; I shall expose such with disdain for who they are and what they are. When men and women celebrate their sinful actions without shame (Jeremiah 8:12), they will be damned (II Thessalonians 2:12)!
