(By: Norm Rasmussen)
God doesn't use the words
'Gay' or 'Lesbian' in the more commonly trusted translations of the Bible. He simply
uses the word 'Homosexual'; hence the reason for the wording
of the title above.
In the NKJV translation of the Bible, for instance, it reads in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11:
"Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God."
Two 'gay' men having sexual
relations are committing fornication in God's eyes ' sex outside of
marriage. Two 'lesbian' women having sexual relations are committing
fornication in God's eyes ' sex outside of marriage.
Guess WHAT? What if they get 'married'? Then they no longer are 'sinning' ' Satan wants humanity concluding this - RIGHT? And there you have the answer as to WHY Satan is pushing so hard to have laws passed for same-sex marriage: To try to blind people to what God decrees IS sin and what IS NOT sin against God and each other.
Having sexual relations with another person is a sacred spiritual act according to God. At least it was intended to be that. It is impossible according to God that two people of the same sex can engage in a sexual act that He will bless. God only blesses sex between a man and a woman who are LEGALLY MARRIED.
How does God bless the sexual act between a man and a woman who are legally married? He is more inclined to hear their prayers and answer them in a way that glorifies Himself. Any prayer that we pray that is intended to bring glory to God will not only be more inclined to be answered by God in accordance with His specific will in the situation ' it will also be a means of reward for the person praying it on the Judgment Day.
That's not to imply that two atheists, for example, legally married praying prayers that glorify God will escape hell on the Judgment Day if they reject the truth of what Jesus Christ accomplished on the cross for them. All it implies is that their suffering in hell may not be as severe.
Back to the main point: Satan is doing everything he can on this planet to get people spiritually dead-blind to what is sin and what isn't. When a person is blind to what is sin ' that person is resisting the work of the Holy Spirit in their life more than a person who at least is in agreement that sin is in fact sin as the Word of God says it is. When a person resists the drawing of the Holy Spirit in their life, odds increase that they are setting themselves up to spend eternity in hell if they don't let God deliver them of the spiritually deceiving hardness of their heart in regards to Truth.
Saying it another way: Why ask God forgiveness for a sin when you're deceived into believing you aren't even ENGAGED in a given sin, such as the sin of homosexuality?
Do you get the point? If you allow yourself to believe one sin God clearly says is a sin is NOT a sin ' it is easier for Satan to deceive you into believing OTHER sin is not sin. BINGO! That is what Satan is after with the human race! When people begin being spiritually brain-blind to what sin is and isn't ' why in the world would they believe they need God's forgiveness for ANYTHING, they conclude?
And if a person doesn't believe
they need God's forgiveness for anything ' why in the world would they
believe they need someone (God
Himself, no less) to pay the penalty for all their sins by dying on
a cross and taking the punishment for their sins so they can be forgiven for
them and they are not held against them on the Judgment Day?
Now the nicely packaged 'Same-sex marriage box' gets opened and we can clearly see what is inside of it: Satan's strategy to try to get people to believe they don't need a Savior, 'So to heck with that Christianity crap! I'll take my chances!' ... they say in their heart.
And Satan smiles '
Satan is after something more than just two same-sex lover's souls, by the way, something much, much more valuable to him than a couple of people losing their souls to God. By getting people to become spiritually apathetic and blinded to what is sin and what isn't sin, the Bible ' God's Holy Word ' becomes less and less trustworthy, thereby becoming less and less important starting with two same-sex lovers right up to the highest offices of our land: The overseers who govern the affairs of the people they were allowed by God to govern over.
The overseeing Law Makers ' Law
Enforcers of a nation who endorses 'same-sex relationships' and more
specifically 'same-sex marriages' are more than likely going to suffer worse
in hell than two people in a homosexual relationship (unless they become
truly spiritually born again - repent [be willing to publicly renounce their
former sinful beliefs and remove themselves from the sinful relationship] - and get forgiven for their sin prior to dying)
because of the influential position(s) they held over the multitudes of
people they were elected to govern.
Yeah ' I know. I hear 'Bigoted fear mongering!!!' by those angrily reading this. Scream it to the Judge on your Judgment Day. We all will have our chance in His court.
