COMMENTARY

ON
HOMOSEXUALITY pt 2 of pt 1

(1Cor 6:9-10 [KJV])

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, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

 

Are people born to be homosexuals, is it in their genes?

 

God’s word is clear, Homosexuality is  Abomination (sin):

The Bible (KJV) speaks clearly to the believer that homosexuality is a sin. Leviticus 18:22: Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. The verse describes to “lie” (sex or intimacy) between two men is abomination. It goes on to say if a woman lies with a beast it is called confusion.

 

Back to the question: Were you made by God to have homosexual feelings, are we born this way?

 

Let us approach this study from a logical and human stand point. We first must establish where sin starts and move on in sequence.

 

Sin ALWAYS starts with a thought. You have the thought to do something, and then follow the feelings; from here you decide if you will carry out the action. The action could be good or bad, it all depends on what you decide to do. When the thought (temptation) results in a bad action that is against the law of God, it is called sin (Lev 18:22). On the other hand, you may have a thought with no feelings, but you still decide to do that which is against God’s commands (sin).  

 

You disagree?

Did you ever see babies or very little children making sexual advances towards their same sex peers?

Let us explain how it works:

 

In the first years, a child is like a learning machine, everything they hear, touch and see is absorbed in their little minds. They begin to understand the world of colour, sound, light, darkness, words and yes, behavior. That is why it is so important to teach the child from early what is right and what is wrong to do in the eyes of God.

 

The Thought: There is no doubt that the thought of sexual behavior will come into play at some point – the child will become aware. We are surrounded by magazines, pictures, internet, cable tv and yes people that indulge in sexual behavior in front of these learning minds (children). The thought is like a seed planted in the mind.

 

The Feelings: With the thought planted in the mind, there can be no associated feelings until the body has tasted and experienced the action and what it brings. A child that knows a thought and once taken to action is wrong in the sight of God will not do it. Yeah, who are we kidding, we all were children and children love to experiment. Here lies the problem; on their own children will experiment, especially older children around younger ones. Sad to say, adults too will “play” with children and this starts the practice. This is why it is so important for parents to guard the minds and bodies of their little children and teach them in the early what is right and wrong in the site of God; we cannot emphasize this enough. You see if a child is stimulated, stimulation leads to the activity of hormones that in effect causes an addiction. Bear in mind an addiction is not always bad. When you first become one (sex) with someone (after you have committed to each other of course - what is biblical marriage?), a sexual addiction immediately follows; some call it being turned on. You see, in a person, the feelings come alive when the hormones are generated. The urge to satisfy this feeling grows until you embrace and complete the act; this cycle repeats itself over again and over again because you have become completely addicted to the person or activity. All this happens in children too. There is a bad and good addiction. A bad addiction is when it transgresses the law of God, in this case same sex behavior between adults.    

 

You disagree?

Let us have the thought to do the action of becoming one (sex) with your balls/ovaries removed. There will be no feelings, hence no more sexual drive. Stimulation of the body by external/visual means creates feelings that we would want to experience again and again. This is how we are made. It may be less enjoyable but you can still go ahead and decide to engage in the abomination (sex) with the sexual feelings absent because of castration. So the question is, do you obey your feelings or do you obey and choose to follow God’s word? Your choice.

 

The Decision: Assuming as young children/adults we know the thought but have not yet experienced the feelings, but we know it is wrong to have a same sex relationship (by God’s law). Also, assuming we have not indulged in self play (in Barbados it is called jerking off). Here you are a totally innocent individual with a decision to make. Do you go against God’s law or do you obey your thoughts by carrying out the action. This is the decision we all have to make at some time. This is why sin is a choice, so let us no longer blame genes. Why? If a person you care for had a venereal decease that would immediately eat your little d.ick off, we assure you, you will choose not to have sex or you may choose to have sex with protection. You see we always come back to the choices we make (decisions). 

 

You still disagree?

It is the same with a thief. Have you ever seen little babies reaching over their cribs in the delivery room to see what they can take from their neighbours? A child has the thought to take from another child a toy. The toy when stolen brings gratification (hey I have a new toy I like). After the first stolen toy, the child knows what the feeling is like. Why? They have experienced it, they play with the stolen toy and it brings enjoyment – happy hormones are flowing. Now they see another child with a great toy, they have the thought, and then the feelings follow, the temptation is irresistible. They steal again and it becomes a habit. This is how we are made; it is in our nature to do what feels good. 

 

Do we say that people are born with a gene to steal? No, we say they choose to steal. It is their choice.

 

DO NOT BELIEVE THE LIE. Genes determines our characteristics and to some degree our abilities, however, our thoughts and decisions determine our behavior. Watch presentation 3.

 

To those that already share a homosexual relationship and have no “feelings” towards the opposite sex, not to worry, there is still hope in the Lord. We invite you to listen to persons that were in your position. Be blessed.
