Homosexuality has gained major ground in the world today, becoming a widely accepted lifestyle that is now considered “normal”. We as a nation have accepted that homosexuality is a gene that we have been born with and that we cannot choose to be homosexual, we are simply just born into it.
Whats more surprising is that not only has and is homosexuality being accepted by the world but homosexuality has also acquired acceptance from many of the churches in our society. We are being told and taught that God is okay with this type of lifestyle, as long as we have a relationship with Him, its okay.
I disagree with this view, in fact I believe that Homosexuality is a sin and is regarded as a detestable practice in the eyes of God, and I am going to give you a few reasons why I believe this. Now aside from the regularly spouted Bible Verses against Homosexuality listed below, I would like to give 5 Logical Biblically based reasons why I believe homosexuality is not acceptable to God.
Regular Bible Verses against Homosexuality:
Leviticus 18:22 -”You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” NKJV
Leviticus 20:13 -”If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.” NKJV
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 – “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
5 Logical Reason against Homosexuality
Reason 1 – The Garden of Eden
In the beginning God created Adam and everything else that exists today. Now for those who believe in God and have a relationship with Him, we can agree that He is perfect, just and fair. He does not try to run our lives and gives us free will to do whatever we want.
That being said, when God decided to make Adam a partner, He chose to give Him a woman; Eve.
Genesis 2:22 -”And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man”
Now if God was for Homosexuality, He in His very nature of being just and fair and giving us free will, would have provided Adam with a male and female companion, which Adam could then have chosen from. But God did not do this, He provided Adam with a woman, who was made from a rib that was taken out of Him which represents the bond between a man and woman that God intended.
Reason 2 – Sustainability of the Human Race
When God created the animals and the human race(Adam and Eve), His intention was that they would go forth and multiply, thus creating more people and animals to sustain the human race and animal species that had been created.
Genesis 1:28 – “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.”
Back in the time of Adam and Eve, they did not have “in vitro fertilization” or any other type of birth assistance like this. This is obviously why man was created different than woman so that when the two joined together and had sexual relations they could reproduce, and give birth to new life. This is not possible with a homosexual relationship. Outside of modern day scientific and technological advances there would have been absolutely no way a homosexual couple could have reproduced and therefore the existence of the human race would have ended a long time ago.
If God was for homosexuality, He would have created both man and woman with the ability to fertilize and give birth. In the very least He would have created different types of men and women that had opposite parts so that even homosexual couples could reproduce. The fact of the matter is that He didn’t do this, and therefore homosexuality would not make sense for keeping the human race alive, which is what God told Adam and Eve to do.
Reason 3 – Made in the likeness of God
The Word of God clearly states that we were made in the image and likeness of God, we can see this in the following verse:
Genesis 1:26 “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth”
Now there are those who believe that Jesus Christ is a homosexual, and that God is for homosexuality, but if this was true and we were made in His image and likeness, then why was Jesus Christ supernaturally (by God) born to Mary and Joseph a man and woman. If God accepted and agreed with homosexuality, and Jesus Christ was a homosexual, would it not have made sense to have Jesus Christ born to a homosexual couple or in the very least born to a woman who was single and who could then choose her mate depending on her lifestyle preference?
Logically this means that God sent His own Son to be born to the virgin Mary, who was to be married to Joseph, because that was His idea and definition of a “family”. This was the way that God had intended a family to be, was a married man and woman with children that they gave birth to.
Reason 4 – Definition of Marriage
In the Beginning when God created man and woman, He defined marriage as being between and man and woman. We can see this in the following scriptures.
Mark 10:7 -”For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;”
Genesis 2:24- “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.”
One of the reasons that Eve was made from Adam’s rib was because God’s view of marriage was that when a man and woman get married they are no longer two people but one person. The fact that God created Eve out of Adam’s flesh and bone was a symbol of how he intended marriage to be.
If God was for homosexuality, and marriage was about whomever you love no matter if it was a man or woman, then these scriptures above would have been more vague, and would have probably said something like:
“and for that reason a man shall leave his loving parents and shall cleave to the man or woman He loves and they shall be one flesh with whomever he chooses.”
The truth of the matter is that the Bible does not say that, in fact it is very specific to mention that marriage is between and man and a woman.
Reason 5 – Homosexuality is Accepted and Considered a “Norm”
It’s no surprise that from even 50 years ago, homosexuality has become a new “norm” in our society today. All over the world the homosexual lifestyle is becoming more and more openly accepted and encouraged, and in many cases the definitions of the traditional way of living are being rewritten to accept the homosexual lifestyle.
In saying that I would like to bring to your attention a Scripture verse from the Word of God. The Bible tells us very clearly in John 15:18
“If the world hates you, remember that it hated me first”
You have to understand that the world is run and ruled by Satan the Father of lies. He is the one who brought sin into the earth, through the disobedience of Adam and Eve. Ever since sin has entered the world, the world has been in a constant battle against God, and His Word.
This can literally be seen all over the globe, with the persecution and murder of Christians, the banning of the Bibles and prayer in schools and public sectors, the rewriting of the constitution to appease those who oppose the idea that God exists. We can literally see the world moving away from God, and pushing Him further away from our lives. If you really sit there and think about it, you will realize that despite the thousands of religions in the world today, the one religion that is being pushed against the hardest is Christianity.
The reason why these things are happening and why Christianity is being pushed out of society is because as stated above the world as a whole hates God and His Word (Jesus Christ), because it is rooted in sinful, and God hates sin and cannot associate with sin, in fact God is the complete opposite of what sin is and stands for. So basically put anything that God finds acceptable, the world will find unacceptable, and battle to push it out.
That being said, we can see that if God accepted homosexuality, and it was not a sinful action that the world would as a whole do its very best to keep this lifestyle from becoming a “norm”. In fact the world would create just as much opposition towards homosexuality as it currently is towards Bibles, and prayer and everything else that God finds acceptable.
The fact that homosexuality is becoming more and more widely accepted and encouraged by the world can only mean that it is not of God, and that God does not accept it, rather it is a lie birthed from the world (sin) that has been used to deceive people from the real truth.
