The Truth About Gay Marriage

The truth is, it is wrong! I am so tired of it being said that it is hate to speak against homosexuality. Why isn't it considered hate to speak against murderers?. The Bible says that both are wrong. If God said it is wrong, then it is wrong. I don't care how much "times have changed". God has not changed. We do not have to be tolerant. We are not tolerant of murderers and child molesters. Homosexuality is just as wrong. Why is it that society wants to change the rules to what suits them the best?

God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. That tells me He was not very pleased. He does not hate gay people, He hates the sin of homosexuality. Just like He does not hate the sinner, He hates sin. God is a God of love, but He is a just God. He does not lie and He does not go back on His word. If it was wrong in Sodom and Gomorrah, then it is wrong today. He created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.

When man tries to start setting his own standards based on what he thinks is right, it will cause nothing but trouble. God had a perfect plan and He let us know what was right and what was wrong. People are not born gay. They have chosen to live that lifestyle. They have been deceived by the devil in to thinking they were made that way or that it is O.K.

"Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, noreffeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God." (I CORINTHIANS 6:9-11)

"And such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and in the Spirit of our God." 1 CORINTHIANS 6:11....This scripture shows us that some people in the church at Corinth used to do these things, they used to practice homosexuality, but because of their salvation and relationship with Jesus, they no longer practiced these things. They were made new. This happened when they obeyed the gospel from the heart.. This obedience involves those who have come to believe in Jesus repenting of their former conduct and being baptized in the name of Christ (ACTS 2:38). Thus they had beenwashed(baptized), sanctified (set apart from their old manner of life and dedicated to a new purpose) and justified (declared forgiven and made righteous by God's grace). God took people who were headed toward eternal destruction, and by His power and grace had altered their direction. He continues to do so today. Those who live according to His purpose shall inherit the kingdom of God.

God said it! That settles it!

Perhaps all of these rules society has put on man and woman to believe and follow accordingly because Christ would have done so, are all wrong.

I am not a devout follower of any religious organization; however, I follow my soul and my spirit. If these ethereal parts of me had spoken communicative abilities, I firmly believe each would dictate a certain set of principles. These principles would guide, not force, me to open my worldview as an adult living in restricted times. Mindsets are closed using the bible as a perfect way to deny change and inevitability that what worked before, is not working now.

Evolution is amazing and intellect even more but if we restrict our existing to what a society deems is correct we might miss the true purpose behind evolving at all !

I have both heterosexual and homosexual friends and let me tell you neither are the wiser for true love is very, very complicated and only Goddess/God (maybe even jesus although he was human) has enough sense to stop figuring it out and just go with the flow and be loving . . . all the time, even if there sexual preference is not yours.

Imperfection is just as beautiful as perfection, only the realms, in which these states of being exist, are vastly different. If Goddess / God does not appreciate the sin homosexuals partake in then love should have been more simpler with a guide book, instructions and resolutions should it be difficult or impossible to achieve. But She/he has not and therefore we, way less significant then omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent Creator have no business thinking we can decide what and whom should be together, or apart.

Good stuff. I agree! I especially like that while you think it is a sin, you seem to understand that we are still called to love and be compassionate to the sinner. God is both justice and love. Amen, sister. Amen.

enlightenedpsych2... The rules were given by God in the Bible. The rules are the law given to Moses in the old Testament. If we follow our own soul or spirit as you say, it is a way that leads to death. "There is a way which seems right to a man,But its end is the way of death." Proverbs 16:25 Man is inherently wicked. We have all sinned against God. We have all broken one of the ten commmandments. The Bible is a standard set by God. He is a just God and He can not lie. He will remain true to His word. ALL will stand before Him one day to be judged. If you have not asked Jesus to forgive you of your sins and made Him Lord of your life, repented and turned away from sin, then you will be found guilty in the sight of God. It is the shed blood of Jesus on the cross and His resurrection 3 days later that covers sins in the sight of God and enables a man to be found not guilty before God. God's word set the ultimate standard. The Bible is the code of conduct for living for every human being. God is a God of love, but He is a just God. He forces no one to serve Him. He gave all men a free will. He desires that all serve Him, but it is a choice. A choice with eternal consequences! C;hoosing to serve God is the greatest choice I ever made. A life of serving God has itrs trials, just as any life, but it has so many rewards. I have a God who promises to never leave me or forsake me. I have a God who cares about me. I have a God who gives a peace that can not be explained, even when everything around you is in turmoil. I have a God who is there for me night and day. He will never fail. He never goes on vacation. And my God, the God of the Bible, is ALIVE!!!!
