Modern society is cursed by an ever declining sense of ethical or moral values. Things that were once done in secret are now openly paraded and flaunted without so much as a hint of shame by those who participate in them. The apostle Paul spoke of those “whose glory is in their shame” (Phil. 3:19). Men of the world have engaged themselves in such gross transgression for so long that they have lost the ability to feel ashamed or to blush. Almost daily we are witnesses of the shamelessness of the transgressors and those who support them. Nowhere is this more evident than regarding homosexuality.
In all His dealings with man, God has been constant and non-wavering in His condemnation of this sin.
“You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shall you lie with any beast to defile yourself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Defile not yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomits out her inhabitants” (Lev. 18:22-25).
“If a man also lie with mankind, 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” (Lev. 20:13).
“For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet” (Rom. 1:26-27).
“Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate (homosexuals), nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 6:9-10).
If there is anything which the Lord has condemned throughout the centuries, it is homosexuality. Do men regard and respect what God has revealed? Indeed not! At almost every turn we find man demonstrating his malicious barbarity and such is an affront to Almighty God and a disgrace to humanity.
The news media has proudly chronicled the rise of public homosexuality in America. We have gays in the military. We have gays teaching school children. We have gays getting married. We have gays parenting children. We have gays as judges, legislatures, and in all aspects of authority. We have gays in denominational clergy. We have gays being defended in many sectarian churches. Though it was a great tragedy in Orlando recently, many gays died while taking pleasure of their great sin. There is no defense of this terrible incident, and yet there is no defense of the actions of those who died so violently and suddenly.
“Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? no, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the Lord. Thus saith the Lord, Stand you in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and you shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein. Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken. Therefore hear, you nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them. Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it” (Jer 6:15-19).
Until society rids itself of the abomination of homosexuality, lesbianism, transgenders, cross dressers, etc, society will continue to fail. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for less sin than this society is engaging in today, and I am convinced that America and all its allies will be destroyed just as they were if they repent not. That destruction didn’t just kill homosexuals. It also killed every woman, man, child, livestock, and possessions. It didn’t happen a little at a time, it came suddenly. The only survivors of Sodom was Lot and his two daughters. Will there be any to survive America?
