What Does God Think of Homosexuality? Pt 2 Searching for the Modern God for the Modern Family in the Modern World?

(Ver 1.2)  This is Part 2 of a series of lessons about “What does God think about the subject of Homosexuality”.  This will be a little bit different today than my usual Bible lessons, but certainly not less controversial in any degree.   I am committed to tell the truth regardless of what it costs me, so if I lose readers today, I’m sorry, but I believe that someone has to tell you the truth.  You might ask, why do I write so much about this subject of homosexuality and not any other sin?  The primary reason that I write so much about it is because it is the only sin that I know of that is being preached and taught to be a normal reality of the truth and an acceptable alternative Christian lifestyle.   Homosexuality is the only sinful habit that is portrayed on TV, in movies, on the internet and in magazines to be normal.  You never see a murderer on TV as being someone who is normal.  It is only the Homosexual Community that has organized themselves into groups that promotes their agendas and their lifestyles as a minority group equivalent to the African American, Asian or Hispanic population of our country.   It is only the Homosexual community that is exalting their sin to be equivalent to the color of someone’s skin.  It is only the homosexual community that has support groups to help people to be and stay gay.  Alcoholics have AA which is a group to help them get free from alcohol.  But, now the Gay community wants everyone to believe this is just who we are and we can’t change.  If only the convicted rapists and child molesters in our country could learn how successful this is working for the Gay Community, I’m sure in the future we will see another organized sinful group come forward promoting themselves to everyone that this is just how I am and how God created me so you will just need to accept me like I am.  After all I have rights.  So this is why I will preach against homosexuality by proclaiming the truth of the Word of God and why I do not talk about other sins to this level.  As soon as murderers and rapists start to organize I’ll preach against them next.  It might shock you that I compare homosexuality to murder and rape, but according to the word of God sin is sin no matter what sin you are guilty of.  You will also note that God gave gay sinners in Sodom and Gomorrah the death penalty for their lifestyles so that is another good reason to lump them together.   You should read the law of God in Deuteronomy and Leviticus and find out what were death penalty acts in the eyes of God.  You might be surprised at what you find there.  Maybe I will show you some of these scriptures later in this lesson.  Therefore, according to God and the Bible I can lump your every sin in the same general wrong behavior category.  If you feel slighted and want to organize a movement for your sin to be accepted, I’ll give you the same level of attention as I do to homosexuality.  The louder the Gay Agenda gets, the louder I’ll get with the truth so that someone will hopefully hear it.  So this is Part 2 and if you did not read “Part 1” you should go and start there.

 Modern Family Cast Picture

I can look around in movies, on TV and on the internet and see that there is something that has been building that is still very disturbing to me.  It is nothing new, but it is a growing threat of deception to our world that we live in.  So I will talk about it and see what the Bible says, to hopefully change someone’s perspective on reality.  Here in America there is a popular award winning TV show that is called “Modern Family”.  It is humorous to me that they call it “modern” when it is actually not a new or modern situation at all.  The Bible tells us that there is nothing new under the sun (Ecc 1:9), so obviously anything they are claiming to be modern has already happened within our human history but they want to ignore this fact.  There is a famous quotation that states “Those that ignore the past are condemned to repeat it”.  This TV show is a basic redefinition of the classic Bible and God family which consists of a husband and a wife using humor to preach their Gay message of acceptance and tolerance.   Too many times modern people think that if you make sin funny then it is possible to say and do anything and we will buy into it.   If you watch this show and laugh at their jokes then you have already bought into their message of the existence of a normal sin.   Notice the picture that I included from the cast of this TV show.  Notice how they mix subtly the sin with the normal and dress them all alike in white portraying the message of normal and purity.  They have preached a deceived gospel that is designed to confuse people into acceptance.

I do not watch this show and the only reason that I know about it is from watching the morning news type programs that report about them and interview their actors or just talk about them.  In this morning’s show they interviewed some “modern families” that they discovered in America.  One modern family was a household that consisted of two women who now had two young sons.  This family had a sperm donor who was also a gay man in his own modern relationship in order to even have these children.  I do not know or understand that the fact that they had to go to an outside party to produce a child was a problem to them?  In interviewing one of the children, he told us that this family was just like every other family and that the house was built around love.  Of course he had two moms and when he called for mom, one would answer and he would have to say no, my other mom.  His dad (sperm donor) was not living in his house but would spend time with them on the weekends and none of this mattered to this child.  Obviously to him and his narrow perspective this was a normal family like everyone else.  So it is very clear to me that this family is deceived and highly confused to what the definition of normal is and what God thinks about this type of arrangement.  You see if you are raised in an abnormal house and you do not know the difference to what normal is then to your perception of reality and your circumstances become normal to you.  What if you were Tarzan, raised in the jungle by a family of apes, would you not think that your ape family was totally normal?  All that I can see is that if they have concluded that their family is no different than any other family in America, then Christians have done a very poor job of revealing God to the rest of the world to show what normal really is.  This TV show called Modern Family has won acclaim and awards and has a major following in America.  Forty years ago this show would not have even made it on TV, but today we have become so much more progressive (degenerate, perverted, debased, deviant, depraved, immoral) in our views of what is allowable and permissible that it is no wonder that this show is on TV.   This is because we live in a modern world and everything is different now, right?   This is certainly what people want you to think anyway, but technically speaking there is nothing that is different today than what it was four or five thousand years ago.  Of course we have technology, cell phones, cars and airplanes, sperm donors, en-vitro and all of these types of things that are new, but the people that are using them are the exact same kind of people who lived thousands of years ago.  Let me show you what God wrote a long time ago:

Ecc 1:9  The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.

Are you under the sun?  Is this talking about you?  According to the Bible and what it teaches us there is absolutely nothing that exists today that has not already happened yesterday.  People want to look at only external things and ignore people, their thoughts, emotions, intentions, desires, lusts and the other hidden things of the heart and say today we have different more modern challenges facing us.   No you see we still struggle with the exact same challenges as Solomon who wrote this verse in the Bible thousands of years ago.  We envy each other, we become jealous of each other and we still desire so many things that are only for our own individual purpose.  Do people still rob each other, kill each other and lie to each other?  Exactly what is different today than back then?  Can you really come up with any new or modern emotions, motivations or thoughts that anyone can think today?  Oh, sure you couldn’t text your message back then and you couldn’t blog about your thoughts back then, but what is different other than that?  Are not the messages still the same?  How you do something is not as important as what you are doing and why.  People today look at homosexuality as being a major change to the modern family.  People think that this is some new physical attraction that has never existed before.  It is funny how God wrote about homosexual men in Genesis the first book of the Bible and tells us how He destroyed this city called Sodom because of their immoral lifestyle.   If God writes about homosexuality in the first book of the Bible, this is proof that this is not something new just for today.  Go read the Genesis 19 account of the city of Sodom and see the story of how Lot and his wife and were a normal family who lived in a modern city of progressive homosexuals and then see that this is exactly what we are seeing on the news today.   The only thing that we are not seeing today that did happen then is God rained down fire and brimstone to kill them all and I’m sure that this is coming in the near future after God takes me out of here like he took Lot’s family.  There is truly nothing new under the sun.

People like to confuse and combine God’s love and forgiveness with God’s acceptance.  After all, the Bible says “God so loved the world that He gave…” (John 3:16).  So people have concluded in error that since God loves them how they are right now (which is true) that God also accepts them as they are right now (which is not true) and there is no growth process or changes to ever make in their lives.   However, you cannot find that in any verse in the Bible.  God loves you yes, but God loved you so much that He gave, so that you could change to love Him back.  You cannot ignore parts of the Bible you do not like to accept only the parts that you do like.  The Bible informs us that God is a Holy God and that must be balanced corretnly with a Loving God theology equally.   There is a central theological theme not found in many modern churches very often and this is the concept of repentance that goes with the concepts of God’s love and forgiveness.   I doubt very seriously if any modern gay church preaches about repentance.  They must tear these pages out of their Bibles in order not to offend anyone.   Everyone in the modern church wants to be forgiven, saved and not go to hell, but it seems that not very many actually want to repent and change to do it.  To be repentative is a divine concept that originates from you “being sorry” for your past.  Sorrow begins by recognizing what you were doing was wrong and then turning your boat around to make a new course of change and correction for your life.  As long as you are happy with your sin, you are not able to be repentant.  If I did not love you I would not try to tell you the truth.   I would not care and I would be like everyone else in the world.  It is only because I love that I write you a letter of truth to try to help you.

You see I got a long comment from a man that called himself a gay Christian and today is my response to his ignorant comment.  He is obviously confused and deceived into thinking he is a Christian and that God has saved him.  However, he told me very plainly that he had no intention of ever changing.   He was happy as a gay man and that this is just how God made him.   You see, he told me that he had these thoughts and feelings since he was just six years old and therefore he concluded this was just who he was.  This is a clear demonstration of how easy it is for the devil to deceive people in the world.  Because he did not understand that he was a spirit living in a body and how spiritual things work and how Satan can easily bring abnormal thoughts and feelings to natural humans from the supernatural realm, he had just learned to accept them as normal reflections of who he thought he was.  He allowed his abnormal thoughts and feelings dictate and define who he was, rather than attempting to learn the TRUTH from the Words of the Creator God who made him to be a man.  What people do not realize is that Satan can give you evil thoughts even from a young age and tell you whatever you want to hear.  Satan can tell you that you are just a monkey.  A man named Darwin believed this for a while and wrote a book about it; maybe you read his ignorant book also.  Why is this gay man not a Christian?  There is no repentance present; no sorrow and no desire to change.  Jesus said “If you love me you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15).   Obviously my gay commenter does not love Jesus or he would not ignore God’s commandments.  Do you know what the commandments of God are?  The commandments of God say some very direct things about this subject that leaves no room for interpretation.    No the words homosexual and  homosexuality are not in the Bible.   Maybe you think you have searched your Bible and God is silent about this issue, or it could be that you just did not know what to look for.  Here is one of the commandments of God that you need to know:

Lev 20:13  If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

According to God’s Law, this verse says that homosexuality was a capital offense in Israel.  God gave these words to Moses for the people to learn what is acceptable and what an abomination in the eyes of God is.  This verse says that when a man has sex with another man in a manner designed for a woman that it is disgusting in His eyes.  So why do you not know how to read or see the truth presented right in front of you?  It is simply because you are not interested in seeing the truth.  If find the truth is not a priority in your life there will be no truth found.  Today too many people would rather live their lives of lies rather than to change to know the truth.  Let me give you another witness of what the Bible actually says:

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

This says the same thing, but the Bible says let every word of truth be established in the mouths of two or three witnesses so I wanted to give you another Bible verse that speaks of males having sex with other males like they were females.  God still says it is a disgusting human act.   Let me give you another verse that applies to this subject today:

Deu 22:5  The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.

The Bible says some pretty shocking things.  God pulls no punches nor does he ignore any sin.  God is smarter than you obviously think.  God says that if a man dresses like a woman or a woman dresses like a man, it is an abomination to God.  I see this everyday on TV and in movies.  Cross dressing fantasies are a normal type of behavior in the world today.  We have movies like “Tootsie” and others that have popularized this behavior as being normal.  You can walk down the street and see someone and think, is that a woman until you get up close to them and see that they are just a man dressed like a woman.  This is basic homosexual behavior and they view it as normal.  If you have ever seen a gay pride parade you will know what I am talking about.  If you have ever seen a gay convention or assembly it is easy to spot this behavior.  Are not these the commandments from God that Jesus said if you love me you will do my commandments?   If you do not think so you are more than confused you are deceived, and I cannot help you.  Do you suddenly think that God has changed to delete these words from the Bible or that they do not suddenly apply to the modern world?  Maybe you think that God has changed His Book of Commandments to the a modern Book of Suggestions.  Has God updated His theology to include a modern interpretation of this very old information?  This is what my gay commenter is hoping for.   There are many who try to teach the O..T. law is not valid anymore but I disagree with that wrong assessment.  Sodom and Gomorrah were both destroyed before the law of Moses was even given.   You can clearly see that if God destroyed these cities for their immoral acts of homosexuality and that this must still cause problems in the modern world.  Read this next verse in the N.T. very carefully:

Jud 1:7  Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.

What does God still say about Sodom and Gomorrah here in the book of Jude in the New Testament?   God says that these were examples of men going after strange flesh who are now in the flames of eternal fire.   Do you think that they are happy in hell right now?  Do you think they are still having a party in hell right now, having sex with each other?  If you do you do not understand that the spirits of men and women in hell do not have physical sex anymore.  Plus the torment of hell is so great that there would be no way that you could have any pleasure even if you wanted it.

According to Malachi 3:6, God says “I am the Lord and change not”.   Then in James 1:17 it says “There is no variableness or shadow of turning” with God.  So if you are looking for a modern God to accept your modern sin lifestyle choices you are about to be greatly disappointed with your decisions that you have made.  You have placed all of your faith in a made up temporary fantasy world rather than accepting the truth.  Even if you were really gay and lived to be 99 years old, it would not matter billions of years from now if you are in hell.  Eternity in hell is a never ending place of torment.   You see if I did not love you I would not bother to tell you the truth.  It is only because I love you that I care where you spend your eternity.  So as long as there is a gay person standing up for equal rights, I will teach the truth.  As long you say this is just who I am, I will tell you that you have no idea who you really are.

I challenge you to search your Bible for your definition of the modern family and see if you can find it.  Then search your Bible for your definition of the modern God and see if you can find Him also.  Sure God loves you and died for your sins just like he died for my sins.  So I am definitely no better than you are.  But, there is a difference between us, I repented and changed and you are happy with the way you are.   Just because God loves you, does not mean that God will force salvation upon you.  Sure God is powerful enough to do this if He wanted to, however it is just the love of God that restrains Him from doing this to give you a freewill choice.  God will never use His force or power to make you change unless you ask Him to change you and that is totally different.  You see I had another commenter on my website who spoke of coming out of homosexuality.  So there is proof that this is possible in the world today if you look for it.  If you are happy with your life today then you have allowed Satan to deceive you into a temporary state that will not last very long.

Heb 11:25  Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

Here is God’s reaction to the sin and lifestyle choices that you are making today.  Here in this verse God informs us what causes people to get noticed by Him.   Because Moses chose to be with the people of God He is included in the Bible as a hero of the faith.  If Moses would have chosen to live sinful in Egypt for what God calls a season, God says that he would have lost out on his good eternal outcome.  Sure sin has pleasure attached to it for a while.  But, pleasure for a short while and torment for an eternity is a crazy choice to make.  I am one of the ones that God says are His people and I have come to you with an old message of choice.  You can still choose today to have your pleasures in Egypt over entering into Kingdom of God with the people of God, but your eventual outcome will be a very sad one.    I’ll pray that you will make a higher choice to come out of Egypt.
