We are in a battle. A fight for our lives and our very souls. Unlike God, Satan does not want us to hear the Truth. He uses the media, our teachers and most people who are into people pleasing to tell us that what we know in our hearts as Truth is only a lie. Imagine that, the father of lies telling us we believe a lie!
I have heard the lie over and over again that the Bible does not say
anything about same sex or homosexual attraction and doesn’t
say anything against it. Only the big bad Catholic Church is against same sex attraction and are bigots and haters.
The purpose of this blog is to dismiss all those lies of Satan, to arm all Christians with the Truth and hopefully transform the thinking and hopefully the lives of those who practice the actions involved in same sex attraction.
First I want to give a little background of my experience with the so-called “gay” community. I say so-called because I have known hundreds of them and they are anything but “gay”, which is a play on words to make you think they are happy being the way they are.
They are the most unhappy, depressed people I have ever known. Their suicide rate exhibits this but they have you thinking their suicide rate is because you don’t accept them or because of aids.
Just because they are unhappy does not mean that their are not good people among them. My life was saved by a man who never told me he was but I highly believed it and yet he never took advantage of me although I was in many compromising states while we were friends.
I know of many who have found Jesus and became healed. The Church has a ministry for them it is called “Courage”. It does not take “courage” to say one is coming out of the closet because you were leading an immoral lifestyle, unless you are living in the USA in 2015.
Sin is a sin is a sin is a sin. No matter how you wish to phrase it, classify it, or deny it, it is still a sin. And yes, for the people pleasing crowd we are all sinners. But the act of habitual sin whether it be cheating on your spouse or acting out on same sex attractions is still a sin in the eyes of God. Adultery is adultery no matter how you want to slice it to make yourself or others “feel” good. You may burn in hell for all eternity because you chose the path while on this earth to put your “feelings” before your moral obligations.
All of us who believe in God, His Holy Word, and His Church will soon be persecuted in America by more ways than anyone could ever imagine. Many of us will be martyred for our beliefs that we have taken a stand on, whether it be pro-life, belief in the One True Holy and Catholic Apostolic Church, or believing the Church and its teaching on same sex marriage as being wrong not in just our eyes but the eyes of God. Not one person will come to our defense, not family, friends, Church members, and yes even some Priests.
I am first going to give you what the Church teaches on this and then the Scripture references.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church reads from part three “life in Christ” paragraph 2357= Homosexuality refers to relations between man or between women who experience an exclusive or predominant sexual attraction toward persons of the same sex. It has taken a great variety of forms through the centuries and in different cultures. Its psychological genesis remains largely unexplained. Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.
2358= The number of men and women who have deep seated homosexual tendencies is not negligible. This inclination, which is objectively disordered, constitutes for most of them a trial. They must be accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity. Every sign of unjust discrimination in their regard should be avoided. These persons are called to fulfill God’s will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord’s Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.
2359= Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection.
Now I will give you the Scripture passages.
Genesis 19:5-7= They called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to your house tonight? Bring them out to us that we may have intimacies with them.” Lot went out to meet them at the entrance. When he had shut the door behind him, he said, “I beg you my brothers, not to do this wicked thing.
Leviticus 18:22= You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; such a thing is an abomination.
Leviticus 20:13= If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them shall be put to death for their abominable deed; they have forfeited their lives.
Judges 19:22-23= While they were enjoying themselves, the men of the city, who were corrupt, surrounded the house and beat on the door. They said to the old man whose house it was, “Bring out your guest, that we may abuse him.” The owner of the house went out to them and said, “No, my brothers; do not be so wicked. Since this man is my guest, do not commit this crime…”
Romans 1:18-32= The wrath of God is indeed being revealed from heaven against every impiety and wickedness of those who suppress the truth by their wickedness. For what can be known about God is evident to them, because God make it evident to them. Ever since the creation of the world, His invisible attributes of eternal power and divinity have been able to be understood and perceived in what He has made. As a result, they have no excuse; for although they knew God they did not accord Him glory as God or give Him thanks. Instead, they became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened. While claiming to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for the likeness of an image of mortal man or of birds or of four-legged animals or of snakes.Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper. They are filled with every form of wickedness, evil, greed, and malice; full of envy, murder, rivalry, treachery, and spite. They are gossips and scandalmongers and they hate God. They are insolent, haughty, boastful, ingenious in their wickedness, and rebellious toward their parents. They are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless. Although they know the just decree of God that all who practice such things deserve death, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11= Do you not know that the unjust will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor boy prostitutes nor practicing homosexuals nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor robbers will inherit the kingdom of God. That is what some of you used to be; but now you have had yourselves washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
1 Timothy 1:8-10= We know that the law is good, provided that one used it as law, with the understanding that law is meant not for a righteous person but for the lawless and unruly, the godless and sinful, the unholy and profane, those who kill their fathers or mothers, murderers, the unchaste, practicing homosexuals, kidnapers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is opposed to sound teaching,...
Jude 7= Likewise, Sodom, Gomorrah, and the surrounding towns, which, in the same manner as they, indulged in sexual promiscuity and practiced unnatural vice, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.
