If you live in the United States by now I’m sure you even feel bad at times standing up for the truth. Living in Los Angeles and traveling to San Diego and other liberal areas in our state has become a challenge. In the old days people proudly said that they were Christians and that Homosexuals will not be saved because of their sinful acts against God.
Now days I find many professing Christians having a hard time explaining the truths from the Bible. The Bible is clear about homosexuality and about people who practice homosexuality. In Mathew 19: 4-6 we read the following.
4“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’[a] 5and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’[b]? 6So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
So by reading Matthew we are made aware that the only union God has joined and blessed is of the Family. One Man and One Woman.
In Leviticus we read the following. Leviticus 18:22 ‘Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.
Now we go to the New Testament and hear what Paul had to say to the Corinthian church in 1st Corinthians 6:9-11. (NIV)
9Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
As you can see, the bible is clear about Homosexuality and if they have a part in Heaven. From reading the scriptures the answer is very clear and its, NO. Now we know that God is a forgiving God and if He has forgiven my sins, my friends and other peoples sins I know – well, he will Forgive a Homosexuals sin as well and save him. One really needs to seek the Lord genuinely to obtain salvation. If someone who is a homosexual continues in that path, they have no salvation. There needs to be repentance (turning away from sin) and Turning to God. While a Homosexual is not saved – a homosexual person can get saved only if he/she seeks God in His Truth and Spirit and repents from that life.
