You said that you respect the young person who is fighting
their sexuality. You also commented that God loves them. I have to say
that I do not agree. In Psalms 5:5, God says He, "....hates the
workers of iniquity." Not the works, but the workers....
I appreciate your concerns. In "My Burden,"
I am proud of the men and women who are fighting the battle that few
people understand. I am proud of the men and women who have same gender
attractions and have kept their focus on the God who loves and
Maybe you would have been more comfortable if I had said, "I am
proud of the men and women who have opposite- gender attractions
and have kept their focus on the God who loves and understands."
But I think of those caught up in sins of the flesh. Like you, I call
this sin and believe that there are natural consequences that follow
To put things in balance, let's turn to God's Word and read the story
about Simon's feast in Luke 7. Simon had sinned, but he didn't feel he had
sinned very badly ($500)*, but Mary
who had sinned much ($5,000) was the one who loved Jesus the most and gave
Him the best gift of all.
How many dollars have you sinned? How much do you love God? "And
the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch
as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have
done it unto me."
Maybe the forgiven homosexuals will be among the the group mentioned in
31 ...Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the
publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.
32 For John came unto you in the way of righteousness, and ye believed
him not: but the publicans and the harlots believed him: and ye, when ye
had seen it, repented not afterward, that ye might believe him.
Just for a thought. When did you choose to be heterosexual?...
And remember, homosexuality has no more to do with sex than
Morality/immorality are entirely different issues.
I wish for one day you could wear the moccasins of people who walk down
a lonely road where few people except Christ will show any love or
compassion. A lot of Christian men wear these moccasins every day
of their lives.
