It's Not The Same Love And You Know It

"The weight of it comes down, because it wouldn't matter if you're same-sex couples or heterosexual couples or interracial couples, it doesn't matter to me, this is someone's life committed to one another, and you want to make sure you do it right," she said, according to New York Daily News. "That is what sunk in for me."

The problem with her view and that of the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (who performed their "Same Love" song at the Grammys), is that these things do matter. The sentiment of being "committed" doesn't matter. That's not the issue.God has already spoken on this issue: marriage is between one man and one woman for life; homosexuality is condemned in all ages and is worthy of His wrath in Hell.

The minority in our society are demanding we not only tolerate, but celebrate and treat as normal that which is not normal, not right, unholy, unnatural, and perverted.

Let's be clear. Homosexuality isn't true love. It's not pure, holy, nor self-sacrificing. It's an unnatural lust, self-centered, all-consuming unnatural passion and rebellion. It has nothing to do with true love.

Everyone knows that homosexuality is wrong (form and function is the most basic indicator), they are just afraid of admitting the truth because of either family relationships or being bullied and called "unloving" and "judgmental". It doesn't change the truth though. (Even consider that the theory of evolution's founding principle "survival of the fittest" dictates the demise of homosexuals since they would die out within one generation because they cannot by nature pro-create as they rebel against God's creation order of male and female.)

Better to proclaim the truth of God's Word to a lost and dying world which is loving (loving God and His Word above all else and then to love the souls of men), and be called "judgmental" (by those claiming to be so tolerant!) than to have to stand before the HOLY HOLY HOLY God who is Creator and Judge of all things, and explain why we didn't tell them the truth and instead tolerated, excused, or otherwise tried to justify on some level, that which He does not.

We don't send anyone to Hell; people earn their way there all by themselves.

Jude 1:7  just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

1Co 6:9  Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,10  nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

The good news is that there is a way out of homosexuality's (and all sin's) enslavement and God's wrath: through faith in the person and work of the biblical Lord Jesus Christ who has saved countless sinners through the ages, although we are all unworthy of such great mercy and grace:

1Co 6:11  And such  WERE some of you.  BUT you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 

There is hope even for those caught up in sexual immorality, particularly homosexuality. There is peace and there is forgiveness, and there is a reconciliation to God and a restoring of His created order. However, it can only be found in Christ Jesus in humility before Him who is God over all.

That stunt pulled at the Grammys sullied marriage across the board. It did not raise the level of legitimacy of sodomy, but rather lowered the holiness of true marriage which God takes seriously (vows are taken seriously especially when invoking His name and God hates divorce).

Are you willing to be persecuted for standing for biblical Truth? Is your church already caving on this issue? More and more "Christians" are caving to the "homosexual of the heart" justification (thanks to falling for the world's philosophies and sin) which will eventually turn into full acceptance of such unnatural desires. Be careful not to be one of them.
