Gods truth about same sex unions.
Written in Love and Peace.
A discussion in the forum was brought up a couple of days ago. It was something of this nature. Why do Christians bash gays and lesbians? I seldom go to the forums but was led there. I decided to comment and the answer was far to long so I am presenting my reply in a hub. I am going to try and keep it simple. This is a heartfelt statement based on the Living Word of God.
I am a Believer, a Born again Christian. I love the Word of God. It is through Jesus Christ we get to heaven. I am commanded to love my neighbor as myself. If I love my neighbor I will speak the truth as best as possible, using discernment. A parent will share the truth with his kids so not to steer them wrong. (this is a general statement) The Father(God) gave us an instruction manual by which to live. Yes, we do have a free will to choose. The Devil hates that Christ loves us and wants the best for us. He will use anything and everything or whatever to turn anyone from Christ. He wants all to perish. He is a liar and sneak. He comes to steal, kill and destroy. It is obvious with aids and gay marriage and all the troubles gays and lesbians encounter it is not the 'Christians' that cause their problems. It is the lifestyle they choose that has created their problems. God did not bring it on. God does not condemn us. Our sin condems us. When we turn to Christ 'HE' can turn all things for good. He forgives our sin. He makes us clean as snow.
The Bible clearly states God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. God says man needs a helper so he took a rib from Adam while he was sleeping and created woman, Eve. This signified two flesh became one. Christ wiped out Sodom and Gomorrah because of sexual indecency. Sorry, God did not create man to fornicate with man. This comes from the Word of God. I do not bash gays and lesbians. I know many of them. I speak to them in my coming and going.I have 'gay' clients. I hug them, share with them, love them. I treat them as I would want to be treated. I have NOT spoke to them about what the word of God says because, doors have not opened for me to do so. I would not lie to them to save a 'client' relationship that would be dishonest. If and when the conversation should take us there, it would be my responsibility as a believer to share the Word of God on the subject. God will open the door for me to speak through him in his timing, if it is his will for me to do so.
There are consequences with sin. When a woman and woman marry or have kids together think of what the children will go through in school. They will be chided by society and or their peers. When one is BORN again and asks Jesus into the heart and repents of sin, they will desire in their heart to change. God will work on their heart and they will know it is not Gods will that man should be with man nor woman with woman. This is the Word of God, not my WORD but Gods Word. The devil wants us to sin. Christ went to the Cross so we could be made righteous through his blood shed for us on Calvary.We will know in our Spirit his way is a life complete and made rich through Jesus Christ.
Christ is LOVE. He tells us many times in the Word of God, he does not like two of same sex together.If someone is condemning gays and lesbians and say they are a believer either 'society' is taking the Word of God out of context, or the person that is belittling is not a true believer. The truth will set us free.(Gospel of John) A true Believer will speak truth using scripture to back up their statements and with love and discernment in a statement or discussion. This is what Christ would want. A Believer makes errors because we are human and if they have chided a gay or lesbian I would hope they would rethink their words and repent because we all fall short of the Glory of God.
So to clear the air. Why is it many point at Christians and say we are a bad guy and bash gays and lesbians? Trust me, in this world gays and lesbians will get enough knocking around from every corner in life without 'Christians' throwing stones. I will speak Gods truth if a door should open and it is appropriate. It is because I love and share the message of Christ Jesus, not that I am better or all that but because I LOVE CHRIST and serve him. Christ is for us not against us. He is the creator. He sits on the throne. He is the King of Kings. One day every knee will bow and know He is Lord.
Christ warns believers in 'HIM' we will be persecuted, for 'HIS' names sake. The Bible is an instruction manual on how to live. It is for our benefit, not Gods benefit. He came so that we may have life and that we might have it more abundantly. He wants all to abound in love, peace, joy, kindness, self-control, humility, gentleness. In the name of Jesus Christ. The Savior of the World.
