I read an article a while back about a student who committed suicide after a fellow schoolmate posted a video of him kissing another young man. What a horrible tragedy, for this young man and his family. The student who filmed this incident has been prosecuted for his offense. While it is a terrible crime that someone would bully and humiliate someone else, I found it even sadder that no one seems to recognize the equally terrible crime that was committed against him.
This young man who has been told by the modern world that homosexuality is ok, was so deeply ashamed when his relationship was uncovered that he could not go on. No matter what the world may try to convince us of and no matter how many laws we changed, or how we try to call evil good and good evil; man has within himself a knowledge of good and evil, the law being written in his heart. His conscience witnesses against him and will not allow him peace. If he had truly believed that what he was doing was ok, it would not have ever caused him such pain to be exposed. Only our own sense of guilt can cause such shame.
This young man was deceived by a culture that approves of and even encourages these destructive, and emotionally damaging relationships. Multitudes today are also buying into that lie and celebrating their alternative lifestyle with antidepressants, serious health problems and shortened lifespans. Many studies indicate that suicide, depression, mental illness, alcoholism and drug abuse rates are higher in the homosexual community than in any other- NOT because anyone SAYS it’s wrong, but because inside, they know it is and try to pretend it is not. God’s word tells us that it is wrong, and for anyone to tell someone that it is right is not being kind, and loving, it is hurtful and damaging and can carry eternal consequences.
Isaiah 5:20 “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
The loving thing to do is to warn them according to God’s word, of their destructive lifestyle, and their impending doom.
Romans 1:18 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
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, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature 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:”
i invite your sincere questions and comments, and will do my best to answer according to God's word. While i do not claim to be without error; I will try to be as true to His word as I know.
