In our country, majority of the population are Catholics. They regard themselves as "Christians" and attend church but they practice idolatry and never really read the Bible.Last month, the PDEA (Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency) busted an all-male drug "party-and-play" at an expensive hotel in Manila. The young men were caught using drugs (ecstacy) and were in their underwear, purportedly to engage in sex after. The news was seen all over the internet, tv, and heard on radio. One of the men was discovered to be HIV positive.I posted comment on it on twitter and what God said about homosexuality. Within minutes I was barraged by comments from the gay community and its supporters. I was called a "bigot" and accused of being "judgmental" which are the common reactions of the LGBTQ supporters. What does God say about homosexuality? In Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman. That is detestable."Leviticus 20:13 "If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death. Their blood will be on their heads."Romans 1:26- 32 "Because of this, God gave them over to their shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations with unnatural ones. In the same way, the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received for themselves the due penalty for their sin.
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done.
They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant, and boastful, and they invent ways of doing evil, they disobey their parents, they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy.
Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they do not only continue to do these things but also approve of those who practice them."
When confronted with the TRUTH of what God says, these homosexuals react with the most vile and vicious manners and words. Like the demons shrieking in defiance of God's Presence, they deny God and His commands, assert their "freedom" and lifestyle choice, yet hide their identities when infected with HIV. God will not be mocked, a man reaps what he sows.
I will continue to declare what God says about sin - not to "Bible-bash" but to inform people who are not even aware of what God said.
