Hot on the heels of Canada’s decision to legalize same-sex unions, new legislature in Spain grants Spanish homosexuals complete equality with heterosexual couples.
Thrice in Romans 1 God declares that He has given up the homosexual: “unto vile affections” (v. 26), “over to a reprobate mind” (v. 28), and “to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts” (v. 24). It is imminently apparent — perhaps more so than with the majority of sins — that God is diametrically opposed to homosexuality.
These people are not ignorant; both Canada and Spain have much Christian influence, and it is no secret that the teachings of Scripture forbid the practices of homosexuality in any form. In fact, that is so well known that some deviants are attempting to recreate God in their own image (an impossibility, I might add) by rewriting the Bible to excuse their pet sins. Woe to them in the judgment.
It is a scary thought, though. When Sodom and Gomorrah were found to be in the condition they were in, God gave the citizens up to their own sin. He didn’t let them be, hoping the preaching of Lot or anyone else would change the people’s hearts. Rather, he warned the righteous to leave and let the just recompense of sin fall upon the cities.
If God gives up on you, your situation is far from enviable: “Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Romans 1:32).
Yes, that means you do not have to be a homosexual to be charged as guilty before God as one. You simply have to support them and find pleasure in their lifestyle and victories. I know not all who march in the gay pride events are homosexuals, and those heterosexuals that are marching in support are just as guilty.
I’m not sure what the eternal ramifications are for God giving up a homosexual unto sin are, though I still believe with all my heart that they can be forgiven. Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
And that is the message that needs taken to this lost and dying world. We aren’t going to win them with legislature, and it is pretty obvious that they desire companionship, love, friendship, and acceptance. There is a proper way to receive all of those, and it beings with the father in Heaven and his son, Jesus Christ.
