"GAY" MARRIAGE: What does the Bible say?
Homosexuals are not called “gay” in the word of God; they are called “sodomites,” and their sin is an abomination in the sight of God. One of the first times "Sodom" occurs in the Bible, God sends us a very sound warning about this terrible sin: "But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceeding-ly." (Gen. 13:13)
Then, in Genesis 18:20, we are told that the sin of Sodom is "very grievous.” In Genesis 19:4-7, we read of a case where perverted sodomites seek sexual relations with a total stranger! Shortly afterwards, God destroyed their entire population because He couldn't find even ten righteous people dwelling in the city.
Later, in the book of Leviticus, some very sharp warnings are given about the sin of the sodomites. Leviticus 18:22 says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination." Then Leviticus 20:13 says, "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."
Hundreds of years later, we read that sodomites are in the land and they are committing "abominations"(1 Kings 14:24). King Asa, a very good king over Judah, did "that which was right in the eyes of the Lord" when he "took away the sodomites out of the land" (1 Kings 15:11-12). Several years later there were still some sodomites left in the land, so King Jehoshaphat, the son of King Asa, also did that which was RIGHT in the eyes of the Lord by taking the sodomites OUT of the land (1 Kings 22:43-46). We also read that King Josiah did the RIGHT thing when he "brake down the houses of the sodomites" (2 Kings 22:2; 23:7).
The New Testament condemns this sin as well. Romans 1:21-27 says, “Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 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 recompence of their error which was meet.” Paul says they are vain in their imaginations, they steal God's glory, they are foolish, unclean, vile and against nature. In II Peter 2:6, the word "ungodly" is used in connection with sodomy. I Corinthians 6:9 says that these people will not inherit the kingdom of God. Make no mistake about it, friend, the Bible is still true, and God has not changed His mind about homosexuals. Same sex marriage is an abomination in the eyes of God. Regardless of what man says, God says these people are exceedingly sinful and that they will be judged for their sin.
However, there is hope for sodomites. God tells us there is a cure because there is a cure for ALL sin. God is willing to cleanse any person of this sin and forget it forever! Some people have the strange idea that God cannot forgive certain sins, but the Bible says otherwise. I John 1:7 says that “. . . the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin." Revelation 1:5 says, "And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood."
Friend, Jesus Christ has the cure. You can ignore what the medical profession says about there being no cure for homosexuality. The word of God says that there IS a cure and that YOU can have it today, IF you will confess to God that you're a sinner and receive His Son as your one and only Saviour. Sin is sin--whether it be homosexuality, murder, stealing, lying, adultery, fornication, pride, rebellion, or anything else. All have sinned and come short of God's glory (Rom. 3:23), because all have been born with a sin nature (Rom. 5:12; Psa. 51:5). Jesus Christ shed His sinless blood and died to pay for your sins and He rose again the third day for your justification. The Bible says He'll save you if you'll REPENT of your sins and RECEIVE Him as your Savior: “I tell you, Nay: but, except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:3) “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name." (John 1:12)
The Lord Jesus Christ can wash all your sins away and make you a brand new person, but only if you turn from your sins and receive Him as your Lord and Saviour. There’s no better time than right now. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Rom. 10:13)
