Homosexual Marriages

(Taken from our July/August 2003 Editorial in Tulip Gems Ezine)

Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination.   (Leviticus 18:22) 

Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

And they were haughty, and committed
abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. (Ezekiel 16:49-50) 

Recently, the United States Supreme Court ruled that government should not regulate marriage. This opens the door to all manner of fornication (whoredom) including homosexual marriages, polygamy, incest, adultery, pre-marital sex and bestiality.

It might be good to take a look at what God has to say about homosexuality.  If anyone objects that I'm not using New Testament passages such as Romans 1 or 1 Corinthians 6, I ask them to remember that the Holy Spirit guided Paul to write:

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, correction, instruction in righteousness. (2 Timothy 3:16)

All Scripture would have to include the Old Testament, as it was the Scriptures at the time Paul wrote the verse above. In Leviticus 18, God clearly calls laying with mankind as with womankind an abomination.

What does abomination mean? It carries the idea to stink, to be loathsome and odious, to detest. In short, God detests (hates) homosexuality. He hates those who practice it: thou hatest all workers of iniquity.  (Psalm 5:5)

God hates the workers of iniquity as well as their works. Some Christians claim that God loves the sinner, but hates the sin. That may be true for the repentant believer in Christ.

It is not true for the unrepentant homosexual. On the authority of Psalm 5:5 and Leviticus 18:22, we can safely say that God hates the sinner as well as the sin.

God has given them up to their own lusts. They shall not inherit the kingdom of God. If God loves homosexuals, why does He send them to hell?

If you're a homosexual, you need to repent and believe on the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. You need to cry out to God for forgiveness by Christ's shed blood and death on the cross. You need to confess and forsake your sins in order to have mercy. Otherwise, God hates you. You will die and go to hell.

God created them Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. Creation itself testifies against homosexual marriage.

THE SINS OF SODOM

Some preachers have argued that according to Ezekiel 16, God did not destroy Sodom for their sin of homosexuality.

These preachers point out that homosexuality is not even mentioned in Sodom's list of sins. Much like Sodom America today, their sins were pride, fullness of bread, and abundance of idleness and they did not strengthen the hand of the poor.

But God does allude to homosexuality in Ezekiel 16:50, And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good. The term abomination here refers directly to what God had said about laying with mankind, as with womankind, in Leviticus 18:22.

And what else are we to make of the words of the men of Sodom surrounding Lot's home in Genesis19:5? Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

CARNAL KNOWLEDGE (SEX)

The word "know" here, as in some other places in Scripture, refers to carnal knowledge (sex).  For example, Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived (Genesis 4:1).   Joseph knew not Mary until she had brought forth her firstborn son (Matthew 1:25).

This is why Lot said, I pray you brethren, do not so wickedly. (Genesis 19:7) The obvious meaning is that the men of Sodom who compassed Lot's house were homosexuals. And God took them away for their abomination, as He saw good, according to Ezekiel.

Preachers who claim that homosexuality was not Sodom's sin, nor the reason God destroyed Sodom, should read Ezekiel 16:49-50 a little more closely.  They should compare Scripture with Scripture (such as Leviticus 18:22 and
Genesis 19:5-7).

They should also read the Reformers and Puritans who clearly referred to homosexuality as sodomy, with good reason. They should read the laws of early America to see that our founding fathers understood sodomy to refer to homosexuality. They should humble themselves and ask God to open their eyes.

DEFEND THE POOR AND FATHERLESS (PSALM 82:3)

Which brings us to Sodom America today. Homosexual marriage opens the door to the legal adoption of small children (usually boys) by wicked men. It also opens the door to adoption of small children (usually girls) by lesbians.

Small children who will be used as perverted sexual slaves.

Small children who will have no choice in the matter.

Small children who will have no (legal) human defender.

It looks like the iniquity of America is about to be full. As one man said, If God doesn't destroy America, he owes Sodom a public apology.

We know God does not owe Sodom an apology. Which leaves the eventual destruction of Sodom America certain.

 

Editor's Note:  Twelve years after this article was written, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) legalized homosexual marriages for all 50 states.  President Obama approves of their decision.  America can now officially be described as Sodom America.

Tulip Gems is a Calvinistic Baptist web site that honors Jesus Christ and provides a free Hyperinflation Survival Guide.  We offer free Bible Articles on several subjects, including Bible Nutrition , Creation Science versus Evolution Passover , The Great Commission and Tulip Calvinism

Which Bible can we trust? Which Bible is the most accurate? Why KJV only? Read our Which Bible series of articles for answers from both Scripture and history (including a Rebuttal of James White's book, The King James Only Controversy).

We also offer a well-documented Vietnam Veteran Story that illustrates the mercy of God.  The Vietnam Veteran Story, found on our Combat Vet page, comes from published accounts of Vietnam Veterans experiences, as well as this Vietnam Veterans experiences, told first hand.  

Concerned about inflation leading to hyperinflation? Some say buy silver and gold coins. Others say it is evil to own silver and gold coins. What does the Bible teach us? Tulip Gems offers an Hyperinflation Survival Guide which provides a Biblical basis for ownership of silver and gold coins as an hedge against the horrors of hyperinflation.  Links to online vendors are also provided. 

Will out of control government spending lead to hyperinflation, and possibly to a new world currency? Will a new world currency lead to the Mark of the Beast (666)? Will the Rapture occur before the Tribulation (Pre-Tribulational Rapture) or will the Rapture occur after the Tribulation (Post-Tribulational Rapture)? For Biblical answers, visit our
Mark of the Beast Explained page.

Will America come under nuclear attack? What does the Bible say? For reliable information on what to do in a nuclear attack, read our
Survive Nuclear Attack page. While many Calvinists shy away from Bible prophecy, we don't. For those who want Biblical guidance about the future, check out our Hyperinflation Survival Guide, Mark of the Beast Explained and Survive Nuclear Attack pages. Our Lord Jesus Christ spoke often about the events leading up to His Second Coming. Where our Good Shepherd leads, we may safely follow.

Who is Jesus Christ? Why KJV only? Why Home School your children? Jesus Christ is Lord and the KJV Bible is the Preserved Word of God in English.  Finally, Scripture gives us compelling reasons to Home School our children. One very important reason is to lead them to Our Passover Lamb. We recommend Christ-centered Home Schooling Curriculum.
