Lifestyle!

This topic is close to my heart because my brother "Andre" died of this lifestyle.

Since we were small I could see that Andre was different than normal children. I know that my mum desperately wanted a girl and maybe she raised him wrong.

Treating him like the girl she never had.

Andre knew that his lifestyle was an abomination before God, days before his death. We did not tell him that. He knew that and wanted to repent.

He felt so ashamed and lost because of his way of living that he tried to still this inner voice with alcohol and drugs, but nothing worked.

It destroyed him in the process and none of his gay friends came close after they learned that Andre was dying from AIDS.

So what does the bible say about homosexuality?

When God created the first two people, He made them male and female. Matthew 19:5.

Genesis 1:27: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” God created one male and one female; they were called Adam and Eve.

You must also note that God made one of each, male and female; so they could pair off and have offspring. God did not make two of each, just in case they did not like His divine order. God did not allow choice when it came to giving Adam a partner. He created them in the natural order of His creation. Remember that every truth in the Bible will have two or three witnesses, so here we see two witnesses.

After Adam and Eve sinned Satan wanted Adam and Eve dead, but God took an animal and killed it in the place of them. Satan wanted to stop the seed of man from being born so that he could rule forever. Satan began to work his plan to stop man from procreating and turned it into a recreational perversion.

Two cities were mentioned in Genesis 18, namely "Sodom and Gomorrah" and the primary sin was homosexuality. It is the only two cities ever destroyed because of their grievous sin.

Genesis 18:20-21, “And the LORD said, ‘Because the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grievous; I will go down now, and see whether they have done altogether according to the cry of it, which is come unto me; and if not, I will know.’”

In verse 20, God mentions that their sin is very grievous, not sins as plural, one specific type of sin under consideration, "homosexuality". These cities were totally destroyed because of this sin alone and nothing else. This type of sin is an abomination before God and it was destroyed before all men became contaminated with this evil.

This consuming lust was so extensive that when God sent His Angels to destroy the city the men of the city wanted to have sex with them. Could you imagine that lust drove them into the point that they couldn't function normally in society. Young and old were all under some demonic spell to rape everything new that entered their town.

Genesis 19:1-11:

1) God sent two angels to Sodom to judge it.

4) the men came "both old and young”, to Lot’s house, where the two men were.

5) the men of Sodom “called unto Lot, and said unto him, ‘Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.’”

- "know them” means to know them sexually.

7) I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.”

- Lot was saved because he knew that it was an evil to do what these men practiced. These evil men was driven by they lust and nothing els matters but to fulfill their burning lusts. This lust was demonic and supernaturally.

10) The two angels pulled Lot to safety inside the house and smote all the gays with blindness.

11) .. Both small and great: so that they couden't find the door.”

Note that these men were so consumed with lust that even though they were blinded they still wanted these two men and rejected the virgin woman that was offered to them. They did not want sex with a woman but with men.

Can you see the total blinding demonic actions that consumed these men?

What does God think of homosexuality!

His story was given to us as an example of what is not respectable to God. Jesus warned us that the same thing would happen in the last days Luke 17:28-30, “also as it was in the days of Lot… Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.”

Corinthians 6:9-10: “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, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

On every TV show homosexuals must have a part, why? That is so Satan's plan could be executed to bring back the curse of Sodom on the earth. The whole world is in Caught up in this Homosexuality and lesbianism thing and it is being condoned by God. Silencing the Holy Spirit in their life's to say that what they are doing is wrong

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. Romans 1:24

I was born that way!, no my friend, you were born male or female. Yes many you were raised this way and you did not have a choices But God is calling you home Today, he did not made you this way, he made you perfect, Male or female. He made you to function normally but it was Satan that have a blood covenant with you. If you cut this ungodly altar you will be set free.

Why do I say that homosexual is a spiritual possession. Have you seen that a gay in Russia and is South Africa, Italy and Israel all acts and live the same way. Their manners, the way they talk, act is all the same, showing that it is a demon possession. After God cursed Satan he were forced to go on its belly and the only way for demons to walk upright is to possess an fallen human.

What Paul is saying here is that God has already begun to punish you. It is a judgment of God that you remain in sin. When you think that you’re getting away with it, that’s the worst thing of all that can happen. The worst sign of God’s judgment is that you’re able to sin and get away with it.

Nor does God give us a bold sign, telling us, “Here’s what I am going to do.” He just gives those over to thier sins. He doesn’t push us; He doesn’t hammer us. In effect, Paul is saying this: Is it sin that you want? Sin you will get. This sin will destroy you slowly like when you put a frog in a pan with colds water. Slowly bringing it to boil. The frog will not notice that something is wrong until he explodes. That’s the first way God punishes sin.

The second way is by the final judgment. God “will give to each person according to what he has done” (Romans. 2:6).

A third way is that God’s Son, Jesus, took our punishment on the cross. A way out being created by merciful God, if we except Jesus we live and if we don't, we die.

Let this be what is in your mind. It’s not a question of whether your sin will be punished; it is the question of how.

May God open you eyes to see why this is so a terrible sin, so lets repent and go to God for restoration so we could be fleeing from the wrath to come.” (Matthew 3:7; Luke 3:7.)

We must pray more than ever against this evil perversion and help those who want to get out of it. Jesus said that even if your sins are many, he is able to forgave and to restore.

If we go to the story of the demon possessed man that cut himself, that couldn't be chained, living among the dead, Jesus restored him totally, so could you be to.

Death is a result of sin. If I reject the law of gravity and walk off a skyscraper I will fall to my death, not because God pulls me down but because the law of gravity will.

The wages of sin are death. I admire your courage in talking about this subject and am sorry for your loss.

If we were witnesses to a flagrant violation of law in which innocent people were harmed, could we keep quiet because we are not to judge?

Im sorry about your brother, my son is gay and not for one minute do I think that he had a choice in the matter. And I definitely do not think that God with a capitol G is going to throw him into the depths of hell because of it. Yes we have all heard the old adage, "God made Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve"!! Okay then who made Steve? Sorry for your sadness I just believe differentley and I definitely respect your views. Cheers to you!

"Alison" "I am a writer, housewife, mother, etc... but not a judge. Niether are you". You are 100% right, it is not me judging but it is the Word of God judging "Sin", I am merely an instrument to shine the light of the truth on the darkness,GOD BLESS.

Well, Lesbians do not do sodomy... and I know many married hetrosexuals that do!! It may be gross to me, but not to others. It is not my place to judge anyone. I am a writer, housewife, mother, etc... but not a judge. Niether are you. I think you have a lot of wisdom, but there are people who do worse things and are NOT gay. That is the truth!!

God loves us into His Kingdom. Are we able to do the same for others? The Holy Spirit convicts people of sin righteousness and judgement, yet He is a gentle Spirit.

1Pe 3:4 But let it be the inward adorning and beauty of the hidden person ...of the heart, with the incorruptible and unfading charm of a gentle and peaceful spirit, which [is not anxious or wrought up, but] is very precious in the sight of God.

Pro 15:4 A gentle tongue [with its healing power] is a tree of life, but willful contrariness in it breaks down the spirit.

God loves a gentle spirit.

“Alison Dittmar”, Peace to you.

God does love your child but He definitely hates the sin, all sin for that matter. God’s word stresses clearly that if you sin against His commandments (LAW), sin will reap death.

Sin will kill her (Not God, it is when a fish jumps out of a fish tank; it is not God killing the fish, but the principal of air, water and heat. The fish will die of lack of oxygen, will dry up and act, the same with us, but the unbelief in God’s word or the way He wants us to live).

That is exactly why He died for her, so she has a way of repentance, out of Satan’s lies, out of the lust of her flesh. God’s spirit must rule in our bodies, and not the lust of out flesh.

But if she does not except His forgiveness and His ways, she will die without Christ.

God showed us how he feels about “sodomy” by destroy Sodom and Gomorra, in Abraham’s time. God is the same - yesterday, today and forever.

Encarta dictionary: English (U.K.) Sodomy (noun) [soddemi]: an offensive term for anal intercourse.

Thank you for your perspective on this very debatable issue. I too am a Christian, and I believe that God loves all of his children. Just as you grew up with your brother and knew and loved him, so too do I have a daughter who I love. Oh, and she is gay. I did nothing differently in raising her. She took dance and ballet and tap and played the flute. She is very girly. She was not a tom boy. She was and still is a wonderful daughter. Do I know why she is gay? Nope. Do I let it ruin me or her or our relationship? NO WAY!! She is a beautiful woman now and is very happy and contributes to society in positive ways. I am proud of her and, why wouldn't I be? She was raised by me, loves God and grew up going to church.

God created her!! Did HE mess up? I don't think so.

I really wish that negative talk agains gays would stop. You are speaking about someone I love. About someone you love too...

Your dear brothers death was tragic, but would it be less painful if he died in a plane crash? Should it even matter? He is still gone. I believe he is in heaven.

I love my daughter for exactly who she is!! Every cell, every thought. She is not a criminal. Please, stop saying god says she is... or any homosexual is.

That is not love. And you should know that Christ told us what the most important commandments are [none of them say anything about gay bashing either], but He stressed LOVE... "the Greatest of these is Love." Love. The greatest thing we can do is love one another. Peace. :)

This Hub refelcts so much pain. I do understand. My brother-in-law was murdered in a homophobic rage in Johannesburg in the early 1990s. His death was a great shock and sadness to me, as he was a kind, intelligent, gentle man.

He was always conflicted and troubled by his gayness. I think we need to understand more about gayness, which is not always a choice. I cannot for the life of me accept that John (my late brother-in-law) died because of his "sin" - he died because of the lack of empathy and understanding of others. He did not "choose" to be gay.

At the same time I do understand where you are coming from and just want to say that your pain touches me deeply. It is very hard to accept some things. We really need to help and support each other.

Thanks for sharing so deeply.

Love and peace

Tony

Louis I know exactlly how you are feeling, my son Matthew was brought up in a christian family, he got married then divorce then got into a relationship with another male, it went on for about 2 years,but the last 6 months both became ill with aids but as Matt was the worst in health there was nothing that could be done to save him, the other male is still alive, we buried Matt back in 1996, but to tell you that Matt did turn back to God and asked for forgiveness as he knew that time was very short left for him.

Yes this problem is world wide, when will they wake up that God never gave permission for this to happen.

Leviticus 20:13.( Penalties for Disobeying God's Laws)It's disgusting for men to have sex with one another, and those who do will be put to death, just as they deserve.

God loves you

God Hub! I too have family members that have fallen into this sinful lifestyle, It's sad because they were raised around the truth and rejected it! Thanks for sharing truth about sin! Letting those know that are in it that there is a God full of mercy if they will turn away from this wickedness!

Romans 1:27 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 that recompence of their error which was meet.

Louisxfourie, THANK YOU for speaking forth the WORD of GOD on this subject! Many do not want to hear the TRUTH... It is becoming increasingly popular to suppport what is goes contrary to the WORD! Because of this many continue to go down this path and are being led astray... This world is experiencing the consequences of ignoring the Lord our Maker & Creator! Thank God for JESUS!

My condolences in regards to your brother. You can still love someone and not condone sin.

Jude tells us "To CONTEND for the FAITH" You have seen firsthand what this does... I pray that someone sees this and is DELIVERED! GOD BLESS YOU!

Thank You for sharing, In HIS Love, Grace, Joy, Peace & Blessings!

I too, am so sorry Louis to hear about the loss of your brother. Losing a beloved family member is never easy.

Thank you for this brave and truthful hub. In the midst of your sadness, you rose up to be God's voice of truth in an age of "political correctness". It can't have been easy for you.

But the fact is, our God does not change His perfect ways to accommodate the "political correctness" of man.

Anyone who clings to homosexuality when God so clearly condemns it--is deceiving his own mind and heart.

Most preachers it seems, are willing to back away from speaking the truth in this controversial area, in order to not offend any of their parishioners.

I so appreciate your willingness to talk so openly about a subject that is not only difficult because of the social correctness factor, but also because this has touched your own family in a heart wrenching way.

You are a brave, God-fearing man Louis. Thank you for this honest hub. I applaud you, and may God eternally bless you.
