Gay Sex and Marriage

Last Friday’s US Supreme Court ruling which required that all 50 states have the same laws permitting homosexual marriages, brought jubilant rejoicing across the political leadership who are courting the homosexual vote. 

For decades there has been a big push for open legal homosexuality in America and it seems that the goals have been achieved. .  From president Obama to the likely next president Hillary Clinton, praise for the ruling was jubilant.  One has to wonder why a mere two percent of the population is being courted and given extraordinary attention by these politicians. 

The Judeo/Anglo-Saxon Financial-Military-Industrial-Establishment has been working for decades to further the homosexual agenda, from propaganda in the schools and media, portraying the gay lifestyle as normal and acceptable, to dumping massive tonnages of female hormones into the food supply.  Doing this in the name of supposed human rights. 

The homosexual life is self destructive and is a massive burden on the nation.  While making up only 2% of the American population according to the CDC, gay-bisexual men make up 57% of the entire population’s  HIV/AIDS victims, and when we add in the numbers of females who contracted HIV/AIDS from bisexual men; the gay community accounts for about 85% of all HIV/AIDS with the remaining 15% mostly intravenous drug users.  

The data indicate that rates of HIV infection among gay men and other men who have sex with men (MSM) [Bisexual men] are more than 44 times higher than rates among heterosexual men and more than 40 times higher than women. Rates of syphilis, an STD that can facilitate HIV infection and, if left untreated, may lead to sight loss and severe damage to the nervous system, are reported to be more than 46 times higher among gay men and other MSM than among heterosexual men and more than 71 times higher than among women.

The colon is covered with a very thin absorbent membrane which is designed to absorb water and nutrients.  When a diseased foreign object is inserted into the anus the disease organisms are readily absorbed into the body infecting the host. 

Today homosexual acts by only 2% of the population account for a majority of HIV/AID [in the entire population] as well as the majority of sexually transmitted diseases and a very large segment of Hepatitis C infections.  They also account for most EColi infections as organs are inserted into the mouth after having been in the anus. 

In addition to these diseases, are injuries such as tearing, splitting and fissures, as well as anal/rectal cancers.  In reality the actions of a mere 2% of the population are a huge burden on the health care system and the general population.  

Making this life style legal and acceptable by instituting homosexual “marriage,” will add to this the burden of administering these marriages, including spousal benefits to those who do not produce progeny, and the predictable divorces with the need for court decided property settlements. 

Human beings are born knowing nothing, and almost as soon as we are born we begin to learn, and are faced with many weaknesses and temptations of the flesh.  From birth all people must deal with at least one obstacle to proper behavior: self-centeredness, lying, stealing, violence, adultery and homosexuality. 

There have always been homosexuals, the difference is that In the past we were expected to overcome these temptations to evil conduct: and those who did such things knew they were wrong and generally kept their activities secret.   Yes some ancients were exceptions that openly flaunted homosexuality as we do today, and they were either destroyed by God like Sodom and Gomorrah or fell under the weight of their excesses.

Today America is an example like Sodom, of Pride in our sins; they even flaunt themselves and their activities in what they boast are Pride events;  gleefully giving in to weaknesses and lusts; becoming the slaves to their lusts instead of mastering them. 

Another big problem of gay marriage is the issue of example.  When Satan comes and places a temptation in a mind, the person who has been taught to resist evil, will cast that temptation out, and not listen to it.  

On the other hand the young person who has been brainwashed by the media, having been told by teachers and the media that homosexual behavior is right and entirely acceptable and sees that state backing homosexuality and homosexual marriage [even if taught by parents that this is wrong] has no strength to resist. 

God loves homosexuals!  and because homosexuality is destructive to its practitioners, to others and to the nation as a whole:  Almighty God HATES homosexual behavior!  

In the beginning God intended that one man and one woman come together to become one flesh as long as they both live. 

Mat 19:4  And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female,

And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?

Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Therefore God commanded that homosexual acts be forbidden on penalty of death.  Physical death in the Mosaic Covenant, and eternal death in the lake of fire under the New Covenant.

Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 

Lev 20:13    If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

The commandments forbid cross dressing as well, and the principle of this law; is about trying to look like another sex.  Therefore the spirit and intent of the law refers to not just merely dressing, but to affectations and any deliberate effort to look like another sex or to change ones sex.  

Deu 22:5  The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.  The holy scriptures call all of the diseases and injuries of gay activities as the just consequences of their own wicked deeds. 

Romans 1:22  Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man [worshipping the creation (the doctrine of evolution) instead of exalting the Creator], and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them [the foolish were let go by God to be made captive to their wicked lusts] up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves [homosexual conduct]:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature [creation] more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 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: 27 And likewise also 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.

1 Cor 6:9   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 [homosexuals] , 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.

The way to overcome homosexuality is to recognize how evil and destructive it is; to pray and study diligently and to learn and keep the whole Word of God, only then will we be given the power of God’s spirit to overcome. 

If we pollute the Sabbath or justify our sins, we will never be given the strength of God to overcome sin.  We must be diligent in all godly things and not try to overcome by our own strength. 

Beyond that we should avoid places and situations where we know that we will be tempted and put the temptation completely out of your mind refusing to think of it. The instant a temptation enters your mind, think of it in terms of the most vile thing you can imagine and thrust it out. 

It is also helpful to seek a lawful outlet for our legitimate sexual needs, being very careful to marry a woman who knows your temptations and will be a strong help for you in giving you all the love and support possible. 

Of course it is far better not to start than to try to stop after the habit has taken charge of the heart.  Like smoking or any other sin; do NOT start! and then you will not have the terrible struggle of stopping.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

Jesus died so that all sinners might be saved if they cry out for repentance of their sins and then commit to sin no more. This includes the sin of homosexuality. The Creator created sexuality and purposed it to be enjoyed in holy matrimony between a man and a woman. He created the sacred marriage ordinance to be the bedrock of family life, the perpetuation of holy seed (godly children) and also as a symbol of the marriage relationship between the Bride (the Ekklesia) and Jesus Christ.

Malachi 2:15 And did not he make one? Yet had he the residue of the spirit. And wherefore one? That he might seek a godly seed…..

Mark 10:6 But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. 7 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; 8 And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh.

This kind of marriage between a man and a woman was God’s will for mankind from the beginning. For those who engage in any kind of deviance from God’s will for sexuality, whether it be adultery, fornication, or homosexual sins; Jesus offers forgiveness and abundant mercy for all kinds of sexual sins if they are repented of. In the early church Paul assured the brethren that they had been forgiven and washed no matter how grievous the sins had been; if they had repented of them. (1st Corinthians 6:9)

In a five to four decision, the Supreme Court of the United States of America has decided for all 50 states that they cannot ban same-sex marriage and it has now become the law of the land.

The Supreme Court decision regarding gay marriage tries to negate homosexuality as a sin, and instead celebrates it! and has now made possible the acceptance and legality of the sin of homosexual acts. By their ruling they have now included same-sex pseudo marriage as legal and have elevated it to the same status as one man/one woman marriage; and this is an ABOMINATION in the eyes of God.

Scripture is bold in its warnings about the sin of homosexual acts and not only condemns those that practice them but also indicts those that give approval of those that do such things.

When laws are changed to make sins against God legal, God holds the judges and the rulers responsible. This is the same as applauding and giving approval for the citizens to go ahead and break God’s laws with impunity with no penalty whatsoever, yet these same judges and rulers will now penalize those who object to this destructive evil.

Romans 1: 32 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. (See Romans 1:19-32)

Most people, especially in our western society, are aware of God’s laws against the desecration of the marriage covenant, and yet these judges have no fear of promoting laws that oppose the laws of God. By passing laws and making same-sex marriage legal, they not only allow God’s judgment to come on those that do such things, but also bring God’s  judgment upon themselves and upon the land.

Isaiah 3:12 ….. O my people, they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths.

The Supreme Court which is the highest court in our land, have to know that these deeds are wrong. They cannot be that stupid to not know that homosexuality is the cause of all the dreadful diseases mentioned, and that the legality of these kinds of unions will be a financial burden on all the other citizens who have to pay the expenses plus the added benefits of those who engage in homosexuality, including those who will now be protected under the new law. The children they adopt and bring into their unions suffer greatly and are not allowed to ever know the experience of having a mother and a father and this is proving to cause much psychological harm.

This is an entirely new thing for the United States of America and of all of history that I am aware of: the legalization of same-sex marriages. Homosexuality has been around since the time of the first peoples on earth. So this sin is not new. The gay pride movement has been around in this nation and in others for a long, long time. What is new is the acceptance that homosexuality is normal and moral; these people want to teach the NORMALCY of same-sex unions to our little children and that any one who opposes it is hateful and is a bigot. From now on those of us who oppose same-sex marriage and homosexuality will be on “the other side of the law”.

As people of God we can foresee the consequences that these new laws will bring about. Judgment is coming upon us soon just as surely as it came to Sodom and Gomorrah.

As God’s people we need to draw closer to God as never before, get the sin out of our own lives and turn to Jesus for forgiveness and help to overcome. We weep over our own sins when we become aware of them and we weep over the sins of the nation that will bring misery and hardship as a result of those sins, and not only that, but “when the transgressors are come to the full” (Daniel 8:27) we know that the WRATH of GOD is coming. We are supposed to be warning the people of their sins and letting them know that they are sinning against God and humanity, to give them a chance to repent… whether they will listen to us or not. (Isaiah 58:1, Ezekiel 3, 33)

2nd Kings 22:17 Because they have forsaken me, and have burned incense unto other gods, that they might provoke me to anger with all the works of their hands; therefore my wrath shall be kindled against this place, and shall not be quenched.

This ruling brings much sadness and it is not wrong to mourn for what is happening in our country, and the other counties as well, in fact God wants us to mourn. When Jesus was here on earth He wept for Jerusalem for He knew what was coming.

Ezekiel 9:4 And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

Philippians 318 For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

Psalm 119:13 My eyes shed streams of tears, because people do not keep your law.

It makes us want to pray even more fervently “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done here on earth”.

The 501 (C) (3) Trap

The Supreme Court ruled that all states must have the same laws and must recognize homosexual marriages; they did not rule that all religions must perform homosexual marriages.  However the IRS has indicated it will soon demand that all IRS registered charities comply with the IRS 501 (C) (3) provision that registered charities and religions must support the law of the land.  That means that the IRS can remove tax exempt status or even seize assets from registered church’s which do not marry homosexuals. 

Those registered church’s who marry only their own members are slightly insulated from the issue, but they are now under pressure to avoid any public criticism of gay marriage. to keep the rules of the tax exemption agreement that they signed which obligates them to support the law of the land or lose their status. 

Will fear of losing their tax exempt status intimidate the COG groups and keep them from speaking out on homosexuality, abortion and other wicked programs in future?  It seems that they have avoided any public criticism of the sins of homosexual acts or abortion in their pathetically weak business model outreach efforts for a very long time already.

This work dares to speak the truth of God to power;  why are not ALL of the others fulfilling God’s commission to do this?  Afraid of a few bruises for what is right, like God’s servants have endured through the ages?

Once HWA fully apostatized and adopted this business model outreach program, fearing to offend with the truth; these organizations departed further and further away from proclaiming the truth, and into a weak, impotent, fearing to offend, marketing, of a prostrate powerless Laodicean idolatrous religion.  

Herbert W Armstrong who was a high pressure salesman departed from speaking what doctrinal truth he knew, and adopted the business model outreach which seeks to identify what the public wants and then to try and provide that; in the late 1960’s under the tutelage of Stan Rader. 

Today the COG and in particular UCG are enamored with the growth driven church which has been approached with scientific salesmanship through the likes of UCG advisor Michael Snyder and the Purpose [Growth] Driven Church method of Rick Warren.

Popularizing and contemporizing the “Church” itself and the “church experience”  always sacrifices the integrity of the full Gospel message and the biblical principles of true discipleship.

It is a shame that many mainstream folks do have the courage to speak out on the issues of our time, but the COG groups covet money  and assets so much that they are abysmal failures at preaching the truth of God. 

With their business model outreach begun by HWA in 67, the Armstrong based COG groups have not spoken out publicly on abortion, homosexuality, or the Vatican’s role in prophecy, or very many of the key end time issues for decades. 

The COG has faded into just another, offensive to God, religious product on the religion market; instead of being an example of a zealous Shining Light for true godliness. 

The final great darkness is at hand, where is the Shining Light of the whole Word of God in the world?
