We are living in times of increasing confusion and intense attacks on not only our identities as Christians, but as men/ women. As we see an increasing push toward the LGBT movement the church had seemingly become apologetics, shifting with the times, no longer aligning with the Word of God.
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. Genesis 1:27 KJV
This is the book of the generations of Adam. In the day that God created man, in the likeness of God made he him; Male and female created he them; and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created. Genesis 5:1-2 KJV
This of course is just the start. We cannot, I repeat and emphasize, we cannot ignore, forget, do away with Genesis, creation. This is where it all begins. Even as I look at animals – I see male and female. Yet, somehow, we in the church have gone away with wanting to voice that sin is sin, right is right, wrong is wrong.
Sure, we all know someone who is somewhere on the LGBT spectrum or whatever you want to call it. I have a homosexual uncle whom I recently heard married a man.
And of some have compassion, making a difference: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh. Jude 1:22-23 KJV
Will I change my belief that homosexuality is wrong because of my uncle? Absolutely not. Can you name another sin in the Bible that God hated so much that He reigned down fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed two cities fire their wickedness? (Sodom and Gomorrah, see Genesis 19.)
I can’t speak for every church or for everyone. I have seen mega church leaders, Christian singers and song writers pardon the sin of homosexuality as though it is not a sin. As though the church needs to “shift and evolve” with the times. God is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
Homosexuality is a sin. See Leviticus 18:22, 20:13; Mark10:6-9; Romans 1:26-28, 32; 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, 7:2; 1 Timothy 10-11; Jude1:7
