God's View of Homosexuality! Romans 1:18-32

Text:  “Wherefore, God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves...God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient.”                                                                                                                                         Romans 1:24-28.   
Good morning, discerning Christian!  Praise God, you are not of the above mentioned who have been left with ‘reprobate minds’.  You have been given clear judgement to discern right from wrong; good from evil; Christ like desires as opposed to the lusts inspired of the flesh and the Devil. 

The 'politically correct', nor the world-views, do not inform your faith, practice, or beliefs.  God's view, as fully expressed in God's Word - the KJV Bible - is the view that is paramount in your Christian mind.

God’s Word tells us that vile actions and practices such as homosexuality are clearly wrong and an abomination in the pure eyes of God.  God’s Word is quite enough for you and for me.  Amen?  So be it. (Habakkuk 1:13) (1 Corinthians 2:11-16)

Many so-called ‘Liberalists’ within the ranks of the professing Christian Church would dare to teach us that homosexuality is not sin; and would go further to advocate the acceptance of practising homosexuals into the ordained ministry!  This is utter apostasy, and reflects harshly upon the state of Christendom today.                          (2 Timothy 3:1-9)

Such pathetic people are clearly not as much ‘Liberalists’ as total Libertines!  Come ye out from among them, beloved Christian!        (2 Corinthians 6:14-18) (Romans 6:1-14)

To accept homosexual practice as an integral part of a believer’s lifestyle is to show that oneself is unsaved; reprobate; void of Spiritual discernment. (1 Corinthians 2:14)

The Holy Spirit’s first ministry to us towards Salvation is to quicken us with Spiritual discernment - that we who were once ignorant of our sinful state and the peril of our Eternal souls, might recognise sin for what is; Christ’s righteous standard for Heaven; and the judgement that shall surely come.  (John 16:8)

Therefore, if a person professing Christ as Saviour and Lord of his/her life sees no harm in the odious practice of male and female homosexuality, that person is revealing the fact that they themselves are yet in darkness, reprobate; UNSAVED!              (Isaiah 8:20) (Matthew 7:15-20)

Again, how can one repent (turn from sin to follow hard after Godliness in Christ Jesus) of one’s own vile life of sins, if one cannot even recognise sin in the lives of others?    Impossible!                      (Matthew 7:3-5)

Sin, for the true enlightened Christian, is not only clearly recognised as sin; but, with the advent of God the Holy Spirit into ones heart, sin becomes even more exceedingly sinful, while purity and Holiness become exceedingly desirable.  (Psalm 42:1-2)  Christ’s Light always reveals sin’s vileness.  (John 15:19-24)

However, the above Scripturally defined abhorrence of homosexual sin does not mean that homosexuals cannot be soundly saved! 

Furthermore, it does not prevent men who were once homosexuals from being ordained into a full Christian ministry!  Never!  There are no ‘little sins’, as opposed to ‘big sins’ - sin is sin in the pure eyes of an altogether Holy God of wrath against sin.  (James 2:10)

What saith the Word on this matter of men and women abusing themselves with members of the same sexual gender?  “And such were some of you (i.e. Christians!): but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.”  Hallelujah!  What a Saviour!  Isn’t the Lord God really GRACIOUS?  (1 Corinthians 6:9-12)

Homosexuals can certainly take their place in a pulpit, or as Sunday-school teachers, elders, deacons, etc.  However, their once practised homosexuality must immediately cease - just as the redeemed murderer must murder no more, and the redeemed thief must cease to steal! 

We are in fact to become brand new creatures in Christ Jesus.  Like Christ!   We cannot practice darkness daily and expect to walk with God in the Light.       (2 Corinthians 5:17)  (1 John 1:6-7)

Only reprobate, perverse, minds would have it otherwise.  God’s law condemns the odious practice of homosexual Sodomy.  This is merely God's view on homosexuality! On the full Authority of His Own written Word!  Obedience comes first!

Thought:     The closer one gets to God’s Light - the clearer one must recognise sin and flee from it!
