Be Born Again in the Spirit

'But what saith it? The Word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach: That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.""

Agape Love is Not Homophobic

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life".  John 3:16

And so it is, a faithful saying that while we were yet sinners, Christ came into the world and died for us that those of us who would believe on him would come to everlasting life.  "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil.  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved". John 3:19-20.

I often wonder, and more so lately, what with all the news of a young college student committing suicide because his homosexual activities were broadcast over the internet by his roommates.....if homosexuality is such a natural thing, why do some kill themselves when their deeds are made manifest.  I wonder.

I absolutely know that there are homosexuals in the world who wish to be 'religious' as they even seek out one of their own to marry them in this church or that one.  This they do in the face of much scripture, which is the unchanging word of God, condemning their homosexual practices and tendencies.  I wonder if there are confused, young hearts out there who have somehow had their ids and egos impacted at an early age so that they do not have a strong claim on their own personna and would then glomp on to almost anyone else for their own sense of self. 

I also absolutely know that since we are made in the image of God that God does not make junk and that we fool ourselves, delude ourselves, when we feel that we were born/created to be this way or that.  "Let no  man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:  But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.  Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.  Do not err, my beloved brethren".  James 1:13-16.

I also know that there are those who are so taken by sin, in particular, the sick sin of homosexuality, that after a period of time, that "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  And even they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;...." Romans 1:26-28.

Some hardcore homosexuals are living in delusion and indeed have been given over to a reprobate mind which simply means they will not be bothered by the things of God in the future.  These are the ones today who would seek to mentor young people, unsure of their sexuality, like Clementi who recently committed suicide.  These are the dangerous people among us who lurk and try to draw more and more into their circle of sinners.  These cannot procreate naturally so they must take that which was created and pervert them.  This is also the main reason why homosexuals should not be allowed to adopt children as who in those relationships will 'raise up the children in the path in which they should go' and teach them of sin and the penalty of sin, which is spiritual death.

As love, true love, that agape kind of love which is unconditional and is the sort of love God has for all of us, enters in you hear a new message.  You first heard "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effiminate, 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: buy 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".  1 Corinthians 6:9-11.

Unsure of your convictions?  Being tempted to move into homosexuality?  Believe you are powerless to battle against the insidious lure of homosexuality?  Don't be.  Instead, be born again in the Spirit, exactly as Jesus told Nicodemus (John 3:3) he must be to be saved.  Then with the indwelling power of God's Holy Spirit you too can say "Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world".  Do not count on an increasingly tolerant America or others for your assurance that your sin is okay.  If the whole majority of all would not tell you of the dangers of homosexuality know also that the majority of all people travel that wide, easy to find road to hell.  Do not trust your government for their pronouncements on the subject as our current School Safety Czar, Kevin Jennings, appointed by Barack Obama, is a card carrying member of the North American Man-Boy Love Association (NAMBLA). 

Know your enemies and know those who love you enough to tell you the truth.  I hope you noticed that I did not find it necessary to quote God's word from the old testament book of Leviticus.....Jesus did not come to do 'away with the law, but rather he came to fullfil the law".  Go and sin no more.
