The Sodomites and the Scriptures
Booklet, 41 pages, Pink cover
Item # P33, Suggested Donation: $1.00
The purpose of this booklet is to show Bible believers what the Bible says about homosexuality. Much is being erroneously taught today about homosexuality, and the Bible is often being used to promote this sin. Just as cult leaders and heretics have always misused the Scriptures to further their doctrines, the sodomites are turning to the Scriptures more and more to help justify their sinful way of life. In fact, they even published “a gay Bible” in 2012. The Queen James Bible, with a rainbow-colored cross on the cover, has conveniently been “edited to prevent homophobic mis-interpretation.” Numerous books have also been published by various sodomite authors and groups in an effort to show people that the Bible doesn’t say what they think it says about homosexuality.
Of course, we (Bible-believing Christians) should have seen this coming. To think that the sodomites would be content with having won over society in general is naïve, to say the least. The sodomites have been emboldened and will now push harder than ever to win weak Christians over to accepting their perverted ways and to intimidate most other Christians into a non-opposing and ineffective status. Satan is never content. He distorts, depresses, deceives and destroys until he and his followers are suffering eternal torments in the lake of fire (Rev. 20:10-15). The sodomites are here to stay, and they will not be silenced. Most of them will also not be converted. Being turned over to a reprobate mind (Rom. 1:24-32), they live in the vestibule of hell seeking to recruit others into their own damnation. The purpose of this booklet is to keep you from being recruited, or even influenced, by their damnable ways and teachings. May the Spirit of Truth be your guide (John 16:13).
Why do so many Christians refer to homosexuals as
“sodomites” instead of using the word “gay” like the rest of society?
Genesis 13:13 says, “But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly.” God even destroyed Sodom due to this sin (Gen. 19:24-28). The inhabitants of Sodom were guilty of sins other than just homosexuality, but the record of Scripture and history indicates that this was their identifying sin. After all, the name “sodomite” comes from Sodom, and the name is later used five times in reference to homosexuals (Deu. 23:17, I Kgs. 14:24, 15:12, 22:46, II Kgs. 23:7). The Bibles uses other terms in describing homosexuals, but “sodomite” is the most common.
The Bible never uses the word “gay” in reference to homosexuals. In fact, the word “gay” has its own meaning in the Scriptures and in most any dictionary before modern times. Noah Webster’s first five words used to define “gay” are “merry,” “airy,” “jovial,” “sportive,” and “frolick-some,” none of which resemble the sodomite lifestyle and agenda that we see paraded before us. The word “gay” was never used to define homosexuals before the late twentieth century, and it was only used then because the sodomites preferred it to help hide the sinful and perverted nature of their lifestyle.
Isn’t it best to refer to homosexuals as “gays,” rather than
sodomites since the negative language could turn them from Christ?
No, they have already turned from Christ, and a great many of them have already been turned over to a reprobate mind (Rom. 1:24-32). They cannot become more lost than they already are, so straight and honest language cannot harm them any more than they have already harmed themselves. Besides, the Bible sounds a strong warning to those who seek to camouflage sin by giving it good names. Isaiah 5:20 says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Proverbs 17:15 says, “He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.” We would be justifying the wicked if we helped the sodomites cover their sin by calling them “gay.”
Besides, the notion that being easy on the wicked will somehow convert them is unscriptural. Isaiah 26:10 says, “Let favour be shewed to the wicked, yet will he not learn righteousness: in the land of uprightness will he deal unjustly, and will not behold the majesty of the LORD.” Our duty is to preach against sin (Isa. 58:1, Tit. 2:15, 1:13, II Tim. 4:2, I Tim. 5:20), not re-label it in vain hopes of converting the wicked. If a believer prefers to not use such terms as “queer,” “faggot,” or “fairy,” that’s fine, but “sodomite” is a Bible term and is proper to use in reference to all homosexuals. If one just can’t bring himself to use the term, then “homosexual” is perhaps a suitable alternative, but the term “gay” is unacceptable and unscriptural in principle and only serves the devil’s cause.
Does the Bible use other terms for homosexuals?
Yes it does, but nothing as short and simple as the word “sodomite.” Leviticus 18:22 says, “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Perhaps homosexuals could be called “abominable liers with mankind,” but “sodomite” is much shorter. 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,” so maybe “bloody and abominable liers with mankind” would also work, but that’s even longer. Romans 1:26-27 speaks of homosexuals as being unnatural, having vile affections, lustful, men with men, and they even have reprobate minds, according to Romans 1:28, but it’s doubtful that the homosexual community would prefer any of these terms. Then I Corinthians 6:9 states that sodomites are “effeminate” and are “abusers of themselves with mankind,” but it isn’t likely that they would approve of any of this language either, so we just stick with the simple word, “sodomite.” It’s honest and it’s scriptural.
Doesn't the American Psychiatric Association consider homosexuality to be normal?
Yes. In 1974, the APA removed homosexuality from its list of mental disorders. Naturally, the sodomites make a regular habit of informing us of this, but they fail to inform us of exactly how the APA came to this decision. Beginning in 1970, the sodomites started invading the annual APA convention. Although not invited, they made it a regular habit to burst into the annual meetings like uncivilized barbarians. Once in the panel rooms they would resort to shouting and name calling, in hopes of intimidating as many people as possible. They also found it effective to appeal for pity by whining about their sad plight, which they compared to racial discrimination against blacks. By much sympathy pleading and very little factual evidence, the sodomites won the hearts of a few psychiatrists and also a panel of their own in 1973. Then after a very effective letter campaign, the sodomites had applied enough pressure to seal their victory. Finally, in a 58 to 40 vote, the APA decided to remove homosexuality from their list of mental disorders in 1974. This allowed the sodomites to consider themselves normal and to promote their sin as such.
So, is homosexuality normal? Are some people born to be homosexuals?
No, and no. The Christian’s standard of authority is not the APA, the AMA, or any other secular organization. The organizations of the unsaved world hold to all sorts of erroneous beliefs, such as Darwin’s unscientific and unscriptural theory of evolution, man-made global warming, the superiority of socialist policies in government, social justice through affirmative action, political correctness, and many others. This is one of the reasons why God’s word warns us to beware of the philosophies of the world in Colossians 2:8: “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” God has already given us some very strong warnings about homosexuality in His word. Nothing the world says should change our minds and move us from our righteous position. As Paul wrote to the Christians at Corinth, “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord.” (I Cor. 15:58) Accepting and promoting the “normalcy” of sodomy is hardly the work of the Lord.
Homosexuality is very abnormal and very unnatural. No one is born to be a homosexual. If we accept the premise that homosexuality originates in genetics, then it needs to be classified as a birth defect for which one seeks help, not an alternative lifestyle that one celebrates and promotes.
Many scientists believe that some people are born with an “alcoholism gene” which makes a person more prone to become an alcoholic, yet alcoholism is still considered a disease, not a healthy and normal condition. This author tends to disagree with the disease angle altogether, but please don’t miss the point: a condition isn’t necessarily healthy and normal just because someone is born with it. No one considers birth defects to be normal just because many children are “born that way.” It is a sad and unfortunate defect for which the family seeks help, not a natural condition that the family celebrates.
Arguments could be made against the APA’s decision to classify homosexuality as normal, but it’s not even necessary. The argument of whether or not some people are natural-born homosexuals will go on indefinitely, but it’s a useless argument, as we shall see.
A man’s way of life isn’t necessarily right just because he isn’t mentally challenged or just because he was “born that way.” Even if it’s true that some people are more predisposed to be homosexuals, that doesn’t mean that they are required to be such. A person’s choice to practice sodomy is a moral issue, as is the case with any other sin, which is why the Bible says that God punishes sodomites.
If a man lives a life of crime and violence, he will be held accountable. If a man lives in adultery, he will reap the wages of his sin. If he lives as a religious hypocrite, a drunkard, a fornicator, a gambler, or a liar, he cannot be excused and forgiven by merely claiming that he was born that way. It is well understood that he made bad decisions and took the wrong paths in life. To say that the sodomite sin is different because they were “born that way” is false and foolish. Regardless of what sexual feelings and tendencies one may have, it is his personal responsibility to resist and overcome temptation. As Christians are told in 1 Corinthians 10:13, “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.” The trouble with the sodomites is that they aren’t looking for a way to escape; they’re looking for a way to justify their sinful conduct. Colossians 3:5 says, “Mortify therefore your members which are upon the earth; fornication, uncleanness, inordinate affection, evil concupiscence, and covetousness, which is idolatry,” and Romans 8:13 says, “For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.” The sodomites have succeeded in convincing society that their sin is an exception to this divine rule. Unfortunately for them, they have not succeeded in convincing God.
Is it true that AIDS is spread mostly by sodomites?
Yes, according to the Center for Disease Control, well over half of American AIDS cases are homosexual men, and between twenty and thirty percent of homosexual men are believed to be HIV positive. AIDS is so closely linked to homosexuality that the disease was originally called GRID, an acronym for Gay Related Immune Deficiency (1982).
But AIDS isn’t the only disease spread by sodomites. It is believed that up to 75% of homosexual men carry at least one STD (sexually transmitted disease), including the incurable hepatitis B. Of course, none of this should come as a surprise to any Bible believer. The scripture’s first men-tion of disease is found in connection with sinful living: “If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.” (Exo. 15:26)
Aren’t we guilty of judging when we speak or write against homosexuals?
No, because to be “guilty” of something one must have committed a transgression, and judging is not a transgression. The Bible is filled with commands to judge, as the following verses clearly show:
“Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.” (John 7:24)
“The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.” (Psa. 37:30)
“But he that is spiritual judgeth all things, yet he himself is judged of no man.” (I Cor. 2:15)
“Yea, truth faileth; and he that departeth from evil maketh himself a prey: and the LORD saw it, and it displeased him that there was no judgment.” (Isa. 59:15)
“Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to law before the unjust, and not before the saints? Do ye not know that the saints shall judge the world? and if the world shall be judged by you, are ye unworthy to judge the smallest matters? Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life? If then ye have judgments of things pertaining to this life, set them to judge who are least esteemed in the church. I speak to your shame. Is it so, that there is not a wise man among you? no, not one that shall be able to judge between his brethren?” (I Cor. 6:1-5)
“But didn’t Jesus tell us not to judge?” No, He didn’t. He spoke about a good rule to use when judging, if one has to judge at all. This is found in Matthew 7:1-5: “Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.” We shouldn’t judge when we don’t have to, and we should always judge righteously when we do have to, which agrees with John 7:24 and other scriptures as well. The notion that we should never judge is unscriptural and it constitutes a tolerance for sin that God never ordained. A proper application of Matthew 7:1-5 would be that a Christian should not preach against the sins of the sodomites if he’s an adulterer or a fornicator himself. He should first repent of his own sins before preaching to others. If he doesn’t, then he’s a hypocrite. The fact that this even has to be explained to people is truly sad. It should be evident to everyone that it is Satan who benefits from the spread of sin due to people not judging.
Can a sodomite go to heaven?
No, a sodomite cannot go to heaven, nor can any other sinner. Christians go to heaven, those who have been born again and made new creatures in Christ (John 3:1-7; II Cor. 5:17). Sodomites are no exception to this rule. I Corinthians 6:9-11 is very clear about this: “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” The effeminate and abusers of themselves with mankind are sodomites, and the Holy Spirit lists them in the same group as drunkards, fornicators, idolaters, adulterers and thieves. The text says that such people “shall not inherit the kingdom of God” until they have been “washed,” “sanctified,” and “justified” in Jesus Christ. Once a man has been born again, he is no longer classified a sinner. He is a new creature in Christ (II Cor. 5:17) with a home in heaven.
Why do some teach that sodomites cannot be saved?
This is taught because it is often true, but not always. Romans chapter one describes people whom God has turned over to a reprobate mind, and sodomites are included. Verses twenty-four and twenty six say that God gave them up, and verse twenty-eight says that God gave them over. Since Jeremiah 6:30 speaks of a reprobate as someone whom God has rejected, and Romans 1:28 says the sodomites are reprobates, many conclude that they can’t be saved because God has rejected them.
It’s hard for our depraved, love-washed generation to even grasp such a concept, much less believe it. However, the scriptures are clear in stating that sinners can reach a point to where God will not help them. Jeremiah 7:16 says, “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.” God says in Proverbs, “Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out my hand, and no man regarded; But ye have set at nought all my counsel, and would none of my reproof: I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh . . . Then shall they call upon me, but I will not answer; they shall seek me early, but they shall not find me.” (1:24-26, 28) Isaiah 1:15 says, “And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.”
Clearly, one can cross over the line of grace and become unreachable. However, it is incorrect to say that all sodomites have crossed over the line. Paul stated in I Corinthians 6:9-11 that some sodomites had been washed from their sins and sanctified right along with adulterers, thieves, and drunkards.
What’s the harm in just leaving the homosexuals
alone and letting them live as they choose? Why must we oppose them?
Romans chapter one not only condemns the sodomites, but also those who accept them (1:32). The Bible record is very clear in stating that God is opposed to the sodomite way of life, so it is our duty, as the people of God, to oppose this sin as well. We were not saved and enlisted into God’s army just so we could remain neutral. It is the heritage of the righteous to preach against sin, not accept it. Isaiah 58:1 says, “Cry aloud, spare not, lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.” Paul tells Timothy, “Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.” (I Tim 5:20) Just as Achan’s sin affected others and had to be confronted by Joshua (Jsh. 7), sodomy is an exceedingly wicked sin, a cancer in society, and we cannot simply ignore it as though it were harmless. When God declares something to be an abomination, it is not harmless (Lev. 18:22, 20:13).
So why isn’t it harmless? How does this sin harm society in general, rather than only those who partake in it? First and foremost, it brings the judgment of God on society. The tragic account of Sodom and Gomorrah’s destruction are not recorded in God’s word for no reason. Paul tells us that such things are written “for our learning” (Rom. 15:4) and “for our admonition” (I Cor. 10:11). What must God think when He hears some ignorant American say, “Well, I don’t see the problem with gay marriage; they’re not harming anyone”? Like the inhabitants of Sodom, these people are harming everyone by provoking God and daring Him to do anything about it. It’s like saying, “Oh, let the child play with his matches; he’s not hurting anyone.”
But sodomy harms society in other ways as well. With over 80% of homosexual men having been sexually active with over fifty partners, and over 25% having had over one thousand partners, the continual spread of HIV places a financial burden of over $12,000,000,000 annually on American healthcare, and it harms the lives of everyone it infects, not only the sodomites. Statistics show that sodomites are 50% more likely to suffer from depression and engage in drug abuse, 200% more likely to commit suicide, and the average life expectancy of a sodomite is over twenty years less than the average person’s. With over 4,000,000 Americans identifying themselves as “gay,” the ripple effect of this unnecessary suffering concerns untold millions of family members and friends, and the financial burden affects employers, tax payers, and others who foot the bill for ever-increasing health insurance premiums. Yet, while being an increasing burden on society, the sodomites continue to decrease the national birth rate and threaten our stability as a nation. The American birthrate is presently about 2.1 (children per couple), which is barely enough to survive demographically as a nation (see Mark Steyn’s America Alone). With sodomite marriage now being legal in all fifty states, America’s family tree will likely be upside down one day with more elderly people than young and middle age working people. Unless the sodomites have a solid plan in place for funding all those Social Security checks and medical bills, logic would indicate that we have a sizable problem in the making. And, as if that’s not enough, statistics also show that over 25% of children raised by homosexuals have been molested. The notion that “gays” aren’t hurting anyone is just plain false because millions of people are being hurt by their wreckless conduct every day. (See exodusglobalalliance.org for more stats. Also see www.carm.org/is-homosexuality-dangerous.)
What should be the Christian response to transgender movement?
There is no scriptural support for such madness, so our duty is to oppose it. God made a male and a female in the beginning, and the Lord Jesus Christ upheld this simple truth in Mark 10:6-8: “But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.” Since Jesus did not make special exception for transgender people, the original rule stands: everyone is born either a male or a female, and it is God’s will for them to remain such. Medical help is available for those born with genital defects, but such cases are rare.
It is unnatural and unscriptural for, say, a man to have a sex change and become a woman just because he wants to do so. Sure, he might have all sorts of inner feelings and desires, but that doesn’t change the fact that God made him a man and desires for him to remain a man. Paul touched on this principle in I Corinthians 7:20-24: “Let every man abide in the same calling wherein he was called. Art thou called being a servant? care not for it: but if thou mayest be made free, use it rather. For he that is called in the Lord, being a servant, is the Lord's freeman: likewise also he that is called, being free, is Christ's servant. Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. Brethren, let every man, wherein he is called, therein abide with God.” As commentator Adam Clarke summarizes, “Let every man - abide with God - Let him live to God in whatsoever station he is placed by Providence.” Rather than give in to the rebellious spirit of this age by trying to change established, time-tested norms (Pro. 24:21, Dan. 7:25), it would serve the transgender people well to repent of themselves and receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. In doing so, they would undergo a far greater change than a mere gender change in the flesh. They would become new creatures in Christ (II Cor. 5:17), thus no longer caring greatly about the desires of the flesh. The answer is Jesus Christ, not societal acceptance.
Did David and Jonathan have a homosexual relationship?
No, there is no way that God would have considered David a man after his own heart (I Sam. 13:14), if He had known that David was a homosexual. Some sodomites go to great lengths to find things in the Bible that simply are not there. A brief sampling of this can be found at religioustolerance.org where private interpretations are offered on various portions of Scripture dealing with David and Jonathan, including I Samuel 18:1. In this verse, the King James Bible says, “And it came to pass, when he had made an end of speaking unto Saul, that the soul of Jonathan was knit with the soul of David, and Jonathan loved him as his own soul.” From this the folks at religioustolerance.org conclude the following: “Most translations use the term “soul” rather than “spirit” to describe the bond. They speak of an “immediate bond of love,” their souls being “in unison,” their souls being “knit” etc. Genesis 2:7, as written in the original Hebrew, describes how God blew the spirit into the body of Adam that God had formed from the earth, so that Adam became a living soul. This means that “soul,” in the ancient Israelite times, represents a combination of body and spirit. Thus the two men appear to have loved each other both physically and emotionally.”
The site goes on to offer further private interpret-tations on several other passages, but every passage quoted speaks of nothing more than close friendships. Nothing is ever said of David lying with Jonathan or David taking Jonathan into his tent and “knowing” him. Attempts are also made to prove that Ruth and Naomi were lesbians and that Daniel had homosexual relations with Ashpenaz, but this is also done with weak, biased, private interpretations, not with sound Bible exegesis. As for David, the Holy Spirit’s closing comment is that, “ . . . David did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any thing that he commanded him all the days of his life, save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite.” (I Kgs. 15:5) That would not be in the Bible had David been a homosexual, nor would the Lord Jesus Christ be called the “Son of David” fifteen times.
It is interesting that the sodomites, who claim that King James was “gay,” have to resort to other Bible translations and the so-called “originals” in order to teach their trash.
Are the eunuchs in the Bible sodomites?
No, by definition, a eunuch is a male who has been castrated, which would not fit the sodomite sinstyle at all. Noah Webster defines a eunuch as “A male of the human species castrated.” Other dictionaries define the word similarly. Wikipedia states, “A eunuch (/ˈjuːnək/; Ancient Greek: εὐνοῦχος) is a man who (by the common definition of the term) may have been castrated, typically early enough in his life for this change to have major hormonal consequences.” Merriam-Webster defines the word as “a man who has had his sexual organs removed.” The International Standard Bible Encyclopedia says, “Primarily and literally, a eunuch is an emasculated man (De 23:1).” Some dictionaries give extended definitions to include certain government officials in ancient times, such as those who guarded bedchambers in the orient, but no standard dictionary defines a eunuch as a homosexual.
The reason that some homosexuals claim that some eunuch’s are homosexual is that Matthew 19:12 provides them an easy opportunity to privately interpret the scriptures and have Jesus rubber stamp their sin. Matthew 19:12 is where Jesus said, “For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.”
Sodomites like to claim that “eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb” is a reference to homosexuals, yet, believing that homosexuals do not choose to be such, they would argue against the same interpretation with the next two clauses in the verse: “eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men” and “eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs.” They’re only interested in the first clause (“eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb”), since they don’t believe that homosexuals are made such by men or made such of their own freewill. Their reasoning is that some males are born with no sexual interest in females; therefore, (1) they must be homosexuals from birth, and (2) God must want them to remain homosexuals for life. An example of this is found on page 65 of The Church and the Homosexual by John McNeill: “The first category - those eunuchs who have been so from birth - is the closest description we have in the Bible of what we understand today as a homosexual."
No, the Bible’s closest description of a homosexual is found in the verses already presented in this study, not in someone’s private interpretation of Matthew 19:12.
Some sodomite writers go to great lengths to show that some eunuchs in ancient times were “gay,” but this is irrelevant. The question is not whether some eunuchs in history are homosexual; the question is are the eunuchs in the Bible homosexual, or, more specifically, was Jesus referring to homosexuals in Matthew 19:12? One can find sodomites sprinkled all throughout history and in most all societies and in many positions and conditions, but this doesn’t prove that Jesus was referring to such people in Matthew 19:12. Making a general comment about eunuchs is a far cry from making a specific comment about some possible homosexual eunuchs. For instance, over 7,000,000 Americans are criminals, but it would be incorrect for one to claim that to be an American is to be a criminal. Yet, this is the twisted logic that some use to “prove” that eunuchs born of women are “gay” and that Jesus was approving of such in Matthew 19:12.
As we’ve already seen, the primary definition of a eunuch is a castrated male, one who would have no sexual desires. To suggest that an absence of sexual desire toward women means an automatic sexual desire toward men is a private interpretation. There is nothing in the word of God to suggest that any of the Bible eunuchs had desires for men, and even if some did, that doesn’t prove that it was right or that Jesus was referring to this in Matthew 19:12. If the reader will check for himself, he will see that the context of each occurrence of eunuchs in the Bible (27 in all) is consistent with the above definitions: men who have no sexual desire due to either being born with genital defects, having been castrated, or by simply choosing to remain single and deny sexual lusts. The latter would constitute a spiritual eunuch rather than a physical one, just as Romans 2:29 speaks of a spiritual, or inward, Jew. Some have made themselves eunuchs physically, such as Origin (185-232 AD), but this is not at all common. Neither of the three kinds of eunuchs in Matthew 19:12 have reference to homosexuals per se; therefore Jesus is not approving homosexuality.
How can parents prevent a child from becoming a sodomite?
America’s descending transformation into a matriarchal society has served the sodomite cause well. Women’s “liberation,” as promoted by Hollywood, politicians, academia, and the ever-accommodating news media, has basically turned men into sissies and cowards. True manly influence in the home has become a rarity, indeed. Millions of homes with fathers have wimpy fathers at best, and a great many homes have no father figure at all. Others are men in the deer stand, in the duck blind, in the bass boat, at the ball park, and sometimes at the bar, but their wives won’t let them be men in the home. His language is too crude and offensive, he’s too rugged and rough with the boys, he clowns around too much with the kids, his sarcasm might be misunderstood, he’s too judgmental of others, etc. So, he reserves his manhood for people other than his family. Meanwhile, in an effort to “have it all” and “be it all,” the women have ceased to be the godly and modest Christian ladies that God called them to be. Consequently, Satan has turned the average American family into a mutated mess. Both boys and girls are being cheated by the sorry example of their own parents. This tragic truth must be acknowledged and corrected by any serious Christian family that intends to train up godly young men and ladies. I’ll give you three pieces of advice. If you will follow this advice, you will be helped, and your chances of training up proper young men and women will increase tremendously.
First, fathers must rule the home. Ephesians 5:21-25 is clear about this: “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body. Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing. Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.” Many preachers who preach on this subject today (KJV, independent, Baptists included) will give you verse 22 (“Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord”), only to water it down by incorrectly following with verse 21: “Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.”) It usually goes something like this: “You know, all the men like verse 22 where Paul tells wives to submit to their husbands, but they conveniently skip verse 21 where it says that they both should submit to one another!” Those are the words of a sissy preacher who lacks the courage to preach to the women and wimpy men of his church. He thinks that verse 21 gives him an escape, so he pretends that marriage is a loving partnership where the man submits to the woman just as the woman submits to the man. This is dangerous heresy of the first order. Ephesians 5:21 is the opening statement. Then verses 22-25 are Paul’s explanation of how both parties are to obey verse 21. The woman obeys by submitting to the man, as unto the Lord (which is why the word “submit” is repeated for her, and which is why the “submitting yourselves one to another” is not used in the companion passage in Colossians 3:18-21). The man submits by not being a proud, selfish, abusive jerk, but rather a loving husband who protects and provides. He doesn’t submit by obeying the wife; he submits by denying self and putting the wife and children first. We know this is correct because the analogy is to Christ’s relationship to the church. Does anyone seriously think that Christ submits to the church in the same manner as the church submits to Him? Men must take charge of their families and start ruling their homes, both practically and spiritually. From the heart, there must be a deep-rooted conviction that says, “as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” (Jsh. 24:15)
That brings up the second point. No man will become a manly man of God just because the wife wants him to do so or allows him to do so. He must have conviction from the heart, else all will be in vain. Regardless of who is reading this, man or woman, please get this loud and clear: your family MUST be active, involved, zealous members of a King James, Bible-believing, independent, Baptist church with a manly preacher in the pulpit. You might have to drive two hours one way in order to find such a church, but your family needs it desperately. And don’t cut corners and play make-believe with your church choice. The church might or might not have a youth program or a choir, and it might meet in a storefront with only twenty members, but it MUST have a doctrinally straight, wise, holy, authoritative MAN of God in the pulpit. In time, that will work wonders for your family as the father grows stronger and forms stronger Biblical convictions.
If you are a lady reading this, please don’t underestimate the above point. You can’t make your husband a better man for the simple reason that you aren’t a man. Your family must be under manly, authoritative, preaching and teaching constantly. In addition to helping you and your husband spiritually, your sons will see righteous manhood displayed regularly and your daughters will see what they need to be looking for in a man from a Biblical standpoint. Do not compromise when choosing a church. If you do, your family will suffer.
Number three: homeschool your children. Find some godly Christian families that homeschool and start asking questions. The government schools are filled with worldly-minded teachers and students who will work overtime trying to tear down the righteous character that you build up in your children. Sending godly children to a government school is counterproductive and just plain stupid. If home-schooling is not possible, then at least find a good church school.
If you will do those three things, you will be applying the greatest measures of sodomite prevention that you can apply. I could deal with specific preventative measures like what to do if your son thinks he’s “gay,” but that isn’t likely to ever happen, if you follow the above advice. I could address the question of how to overcome homosexual temptations, but you will know how, if you follow the above advice. I could address the importance of Bible reading and prayer in your family life, but that will work itself out, if you follow the above advice. I could recommend Dr. Fluppingoozle’s latest book on the family, but you won’t need his anemic book, if you follow the above advice. Laodicean “ministers” make fortunes by skipping those three essential points and then writing “how to” books for broken families. Your family doesn’t have to be broken! If you’ll follow those three simple points, you will be light years ahead of all your worldly peers (Ecc. 7:18). THAT is a promise.
Are preachers required to perform weddings for sodomite couples?
Legally speaking, the answer is “No,” since we (as ministers) are acting totally in the roll of our religious profession. Requiring us to perform any wedding against our convictions would violate the “free exercise” clause of the First Amendment. This is not the case with court clerks and judges who are government employees. Not even government employees should have to violate their consciences by being required to issue marriage licenses or conduct weddings, but the legal argument can be made that this is what the tax payers pay them to do. Tax payers do not pay preachers to do anything, so there is no legal requirement for them to conduct weddings at all, much less sodomite weddings.
Personally, I have turned down more weddings than I have performed in my years as a pastor, and no one that I’ve turned down has ever had the impression that I was required to officiate a wedding. Granted, no sodomite has ever approached me with a wedding request, but it is well within my legal right to decline. That could change, of course, but at the writing of this booklet, there is no legal requirement.
The first problem is likely going to come with preachers who have hired out to perform weddings to make money, such as wedding chapels and weddings for non-church members. A preacher who has done weddings for the general public just to make money will likely run into some issues when he attempts to "discriminate" against a "loving gay couple" that only wants the same services that he has extended to others as more of a business than a religious practice.
My policy has always been that I do weddings for my church members only, and only when both parties are members of my church. I believe this will carry some legal weight if "push comes to shove." Only time will tell.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that the sodomites won’t try to force pastors into performing weddings for them. They’ve gotten pretty much everything they have by aggressive activism, including judicial activism, so we should expect more sodomite attacks in the future.
How should we treat sodomite friends and relatives?
If the person in question is believed to be lost, then the message should be “except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish” (Luke 13:3) and “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved . . .” (Acts 16:31) According to John 3:36, the wrath of God abides on lost sinners, and it will do them good to feel that wrath instead of having it softened by good words and fair speeches. As Ephesians 5:11 says, “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” Words of love and mercy should be given to them, but only in the context of them receiving God’s love and mercy by turning from their sins and receiving the Lord Jesus Christ. Never tell a sodomite that God loves them as they are. He doesn’t, there is no scripture that says otherwise, and it will only comfort them in their sins.
If the person is believed to be a wayward Christian, then, as a general rule, we should break fellowship with such people and practice Biblical separation. The reason for this is well stated in II Thessalonians 3:6: “Now we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after the tradition which he received of us.” Certainly, the sodomite sinstyle is not “after the tradition” of Paul’s writings, so they should not be made comfortable in their sin by being permitted to enjoy the fellowship of God-fearing Christians. This principle is found throughout the New Testament. II Thessalonians 3:14 says, “And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and have no company with him, that he may be ashamed.” Jesus said in Matthew 18:17, “ . . . if he neglect to hear the church, let him be unto thee as an heathen man and a publican.” Jesus did not say to receive him into the church and pray for him. The offender is to be made to feel the wrath of God on himself by Christians practicing separation. If he’s allowed to stay in the church fellowship, it is likely that the Holy Spirit will be quenched and the best members will leave. Satan wins. Romans 16:17 says to mark and avoid “them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned.” I Corinthians 5:5 even says to turn some sex-sinners over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, and verse 9 says not to company with fornicators. Are we to believe that sodomites are less sinners than fornicators and that we should welcome their fellowship? They should be given the truth about their sin, told to confess it as a sin (I John 1:9), and then they should be left to experience Holy Ghost conviction while being prayed for by Christians.
Friend, if you are a homosexual and you feel offended with what you have been reading, you haven’t felt anything compared to the burning hell that you will be condemned to for living in open sin before God. We haven’t called you a queer, a fag, a fruit, a sissy, or any other unnecessary term. Being true to the title of this booklet and true to the Scriptures, we have called you what God calls you: a sodomite. Becoming offended and angry with us will accomplish nothing. The wisest thing you can do right now is realize that God has been very gracious in giving you this opportunity to find the courage to face the truth of His word. If you are to become a true Christian and escape the damnation of hell, then you must repent of your sins and receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. You must become a new creature in Christ (II Cor. 5:17). Please take the time to read the next section prayerfully, asking God to show you the truth.
