Professing to be wise, they became fools,
and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes 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, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers,
30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
The subtle disintegration and obvious collapse of matrimonial harmony between MAN-WOMAN, youths on a rampage of sexual frenzy of various ramifications.
Outright war against marriage and MALE-FEMALE relationship by individuals, families, society and governments.
Selfishness magnified and sin glorified, drug abuse and depression on a massive scale, suicides, increase in alcoholism, many are in a permanent state of stupor to dampen the reality of pain and depression that is their daily experience.
I actually read a story recently of a husband and wife who started dressing up their 7 year old BOY as a girl and had been for a couple of years because they noticed he (?) had been acting like a girl for a long time and loved girlie things….room all pink, loved to play with dolls, goes around with a pink parasol and all girl attire etc…..
Later on the parents thought it wise to invest in his NATURAL DISPOSITION
God definitely put a limit on the sexual disposition of humankind.
And the limit:
Sex is meant to be enjoyed in the context of marriage – not outside of it. Unfortunately, these days we must be specific about this ‘definition of limit’………….sex is to be enjoyed within the context of a marriage between A MAN and A WOMAN!
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.”
“Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.”
The men of Sodom and Gomorrah were the first recorded in the Bible to face punishment for their sexual perversion.
In Genesis chapter 19, we find two angels that pay a visit to Lot’s home in Sodom.
Verse 4; “all the men from every part of Sodom” surrounded Lot’s house, and told Lot to bring out his visitors “so that we can have sex with them.”
Jude 7 shows that Sodom and Gomorrah’s punishment was due to their sexual perversion.
The sin was not simply one of violence (rape) but of sexual immorality (homosexuality).
As further evidence of the sinful nature of homosexuality, Leviticus 18:22, and 20:13 both describe homosexuality as “AN ABOMINATION.”
Romans 1:26-27, apostle Paul is specific;
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 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 recompense of their error which was meet.” In 1 Corinthians 6:9, Paul wrote, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.”
The Greek word from which the King James Bible gets the word “effeminate” is malakos, which literally means something soft to the touch,this appears to be used as a negative figure-of-speech to refer to a boy kept for homosexual relations with a man.
The print/electronic media, politicians and law makers, and the academic world/ intellectuals have become some sort of spokes persons for the “gay” culture
It appears that those who take a BIBLICAL MORAL stance on the issue in our time are on the brink of extinction due to recent marginalization and a gradual strategy to incorporate acceptance in the psyche of the general populace
In 1993, Dean Hamer of the National Cancer Institute claimed to have found a genetic link to homosexuality. Yet in 1999, the results of an intensive study by the University of Western Ontario found that Hamer was in error. The fact is that after all the attempts to show a genetic cause for homosexuality, no such genetic cause has been found.
A British psychologist has had enormous success in providing “reorientation” therapy to homosexuals who want to change.
in 2002, a study by the University of Arkansas was publicized that showed that term to be inaccurate. While a phobia is a fear, researchers found that those termed “homophobic” exhibited no traces of fear. The study subjects’ reactions ranged from disapproval to disgust, but none showed any fear.
