How should christians deal with homosexuality?

Holy bible


Treating homosexuality as a normal or “alternate” lifestyle as a matter of government policy is a slap in the face of God and will be a large factor in the destruction of this nation, along with abortion. The question that we have to answer is, how do we deal with what God calls perversion and an abomination? The homosexual community, a whole 2% to 5% of the population, and the cowards in media and politics that support this perversion of God’s design for sex call Christians “bigots”, “intolerant”, and “haters” for daring to call homosexuality sin yet they never utter a word about moslems, the people who kill homosexuals. This makes no sense to me. I call for repentance and am Iran hangs Homosexuals 1called vile names but the moslem who kills them gets a pass, why is that?

In discussions in online sites I have seen some horrendously hateful remarks directed my way, without justification. I never call homosexuals names like “faggot” or “queer”. I don’t even call them sodomites as the Bible does, but I don’t use the politically correct term “gay” either. I simply refer to them as homosexuals and point out that God calls them to repent of their sin. How can that possibly be construed as “hate” unless the goal is to intimidate me into silence, which won’t ever succeed? The Bible also calls heterosexual activity sin if not conducted under the auspices of marriage sin, and so do I, so that would seem to level the playing field. A heterosexual who “hooks up” just for sexual purposes is just as sinful in the eyes of God and I have pointed that out without catching any criticism so what gives?

Homosexuals now have bullied the courts into declaring they can get married, going outside their jurisdiction under the Constitution, but the court cannot redefine the Word of God to suit a political agenda and God is not going to change His mind because 5 black robed people said ConstitutionHe is a “hater”, a “bigot”, or is “intolerant”. Politicians seeking power and wealth caved in to this evil a long time ago, with the intent of personal benefit, not some grand goal of “tolerance” and “inclusiveness”. Some have done so seeking not only their own power but also the destruction of Christianity and the nation based on God.

I will never call homosexuals names, as some have done to me, and I will never call for them to be killed, as some have done to me, but I will never accept homosexuality as normal and will also never condone their “lifestyle” as an “alternative” one. The Bible says to hate the sin but to love the sinner and that is what Christians I know do, they call the act sin and try to convince the sinner to turn their hearts toward Jesus and repent. As I recently wrote, we do this out of a Christian love for the souls of our brothers and sisters, hoping to have them enjoy an eternity with Jesus in Heaven. If they call that “hate” what do they consider love, condoning their sin to make them “feel good about themselves” in this life? I consider Christian love to be looking out for the best interests of people, in this life and the next. Calling a person to follow Jesus isn’t always easy because some just want to be told they are right whether they are or not. Following Jesus isn’t easy either as the world is the dominion of satan and he persecutes followers of Jesus in any way he can, either politically and financially as we face in the USA or killing them as is happening in many countries throughout the world. Satan uses immorality and the Christian view of it to turn people against us and try the intimidation tactic. One common tactic is the reference of Jesus telling a crowd about to stone a prostitute “he who is without sin cast the first stone”. What they fail to do is finish the statement. Jesus then turned to the prostitute and told her; “go, and sin no more”, an admonition toJesus stop her immorality. I find it convenient that liberals seem to pick and choose what parts of the bible matter, what parts they find useful to them. Liberals pick little snippets they can use for intimidation of Christians who don’t know enough about Scripture to set the liberals straight. Christians lacking the needed knowledge have a tendency to cower because they think they are somehow wrong when they aren’t. Lack of biblical knowledge of Christians causes damage because when the anti-Christian left cowers on e of us it gives them the confidence to think they can win when they won’t in the end. Being able to respond correctly when liberals try their intimidation is very important in the goal of turning non-believers around and possibly rescuing them from satan. Only Jesus can save us but we can assist by giving them the right message of salvation and doing it in a loving yet firm way.
