HOW DOES THE CHURCH OF CHRIST FEEL ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY?
Before we can answer this question, let us look at a couple of scriptures first.
Malachi 3:6 “For I am the LORD, I change not;”
We see in this scripture that God is unchangeable. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. Can we agree to that?
Now let’s look at another scripture.
Leviticus 18: 22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Now let’s ask, what is an abomination? The dictionary defines it as something that is detestable, loathsome, sickening, Disgusting; I think you get the picture.
Now if God is unchangeable, and if laying with another as with a womankind and if it was abominable to God back in the old testament days, why wouldn’t be abominable to God today?
The answer is “It Is!”
Now I want to bring more scriptures to light.
Let’s look at the writings of the Apostle Paul to the Romans.
Romans 1: 18 For the wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 ¶ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 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:
21 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.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 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.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 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.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against
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.
28 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;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
If you noticed, this scripture stated that “ God gave them up” or “gave them over to” such travesties. In other words, if people want to do such actions, then God will allow them to do it and give them over to it. But the last verse (verse 32) tells it all. They are worthy of death. They are leaving the Grace of God to fulfill their unnatural lust.
In today’s sociality, it is politically correct to be in favor of homosexuality, saying it is another choice and people can live their lives the way they want to. God will never take away one’s free will agency, but to have it as part of our natural culture is against God’s will.
Some will say that they were born this way. But let me ask you: Are we born sinners? The answer to that question is “NO!” I am not here to say how people gets these emotions or feelings, but I am sure we are not born this way.
So we feel it is more important to be God Correct rather than Politically Correct. With these scriptures, now you decide how do you feel about Homosexuality.
Please understand that we do not condemn anybody. We love all people of the Earth, even though we may not agree with their lifestyle, we invite all to come and learn about The Elijah Message, this great latter day messages sent from God today.
…..Follow not after the craze of the world, for the Lord wants a holy people.
