Those who engage in this abomination ignore and twist the Scriptures so that they may try to justify their perversion.

Romans 1:24 Therefore God gave them over to in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, that their bodies might be dishonored among them. 26) For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27) and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28) And just as they did not see fit to accknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper.

The acceptance and promotion of homosexuality within a nation is one of the reasons that God destroys a nation.
God will not destroy us....we will destroy ourselves as we get further and further away from God and His teaching and more and more into accepting sinful living as the norm. There is proof positive of this...just look around you.

GREETINGS,
I opened up your profile, when it said member has a pik. I saw the picture of the little boy and dog.

This picture needs to plastered across the US.. Maybe it would send some kind of message just how real the word is. That twisting it around will not change it.

The word is clear his spirit will pour out on all flesh........ didn't say when or give any personal life style that it wont happen to.
This is a verse and Prayer that is always with me, in hopes it happens soon.

Have a Blessed day

I am an optimist...I look around for the goodness in people..Don't go seeking, searching, prying through keyholes to find their sins.
God is aware of their sins..and mine...

Yes we may individually destroy ourselves by continuing to focus on others sin and not the goodness, the forgiveness and the love of Christ that we should be showing the world through our words and deeds.
With prayers that our own sins are forgiven..

There are five cycles of discipline through which God disciplines a nation. The fifth cycle is the total destruction of a nation. It is true that a nation has already destroyed itself internally before God than brings about the final destruction of that nation if things go that far, as in the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.Or the despersal of Israel. The Jews were scattered among the Gentile nations, while the nation of Israel itself was destroyed.

In many cases a nation simply fades into obscurity where once it had great power and influence.

Could you start a thread on the 5 cycles? I would be interested in reading it.

God did not personally come to earth and write the bible with His hands. Some words were inspired by angels and the person who took the message put in his own words. The bible is not sacred, you are. No matter how many times you read, study and popularize it, it will never be sacred and God will never have penned it. People wrote the bible and their opinions, at that time, were more morbid than we have today. They had no idea about God.
The reason homosexuality is in the bible as sin is because the writers wanted to influence mankind into thinking that we should reproduce so that we could acquire more males for fighting. Homosexuality is not a sin to God. Not loving is. When you discriminate against someone with something you do not believe in, it a sin. You darken your own soul by not loving that person based on your beliefs. Love has no gender. It has no guidelines when it comes to the sex. You have no sexual organs in the spirit world so why would it matter here. Only humans made that law, not God. The soul is the real you and the soul has no gender. THe sexual organs were created for the material purpose only. Once you die, you will no longer have them. You will be male or female in your attributes but not in your spirit body. YOu should really try to learn a lot more about the spirit world cause you'll be there someday. It's more important than the material world.

The Bible is the written word of God. It is the mind of Christ. The thinking of Christ set down in writing. Psalms 138:2 ''For Thou hast magnified Thy word according to all Thy name.'' It is sacred.

2 Peter 1:20-21 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of scripture originates from one's own disclosure. For prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spoke as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit.

(quote)
This means that God the holy Spirit so directed the writers of Scripture that without changing their personality, vocabulary, frame of reference, or emotional pattern, God's complete and connected thought toward man was recorded in their own language and vernacular. As a result, we actually have in Scripture the mind of Christ--the Word of God--the divine viewpoint as it is expressed in human terms under the principle of inspiration. The doctrine of inspiration applies only to the original languages of Scripture and guarantees their accuracy. (unquote)

(Canonicity, Robert B. Thieme, JR. PP. 3,4.)


1 Peter 1:25 ''But the word of the Lord abides forever.''

2 Tim. 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.

The Bible declares over and over that homosexuality is a sin.
