Christianity and Homosexuality 2

Christianity and Homosexuality 2

 

 

Memory Verse:

“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;”

Ephesians 4:22

 

 

 

Bible Passage:

Rom. 1:21-28

 

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION
So far we have discussed what homosexuality really is, societal attitude and what the Bible says about it. Today, we shall be examining the dangers involved in homosexuality, Christian’s response to the homosexual and homosexual marriages.

 

 

 

 

OUTLINES
1. The Danger Involved
2. Christian’s Response To The Homosexual
3. Should homosexuals be allowed to marry one another?

 

 

 

 

THE DANGER INVOLVED
Unlike other sins, this sexual sin has a judgment administered by God Himself: He gives them over to their passions and ‘to do those things which are not convenient–in the old sense of that word, that is, “not becoming,” “indecorous,” “shameful.” (Rom. 1:26-28). This means that their hearts are allowed to be hardened by their sins. As a result, they can no longer see the error of what they are doing – Prov. 10:17, Heb. 3:7-10.

 

Without an awareness of their sinfulness, there will be no repentance – 2 Cor. 4:3-4. Without repentance, there will be no forgiveness (Act. 8:22). Without forgiveness, there is no salvation – Heb. 2:3, Rom. 5:1, 2 Cor. 7:10, Rom. 10:10.

 

 

 

 

 

CHRISTIAN’S RESPONSE TO THE HOMOSEXUAL
Just because someone is a homosexual does not mean that we cannot love him (or her) or pray for them- Lev. 19:18, 1 Tim. 1:5.

 

 

Homosexuality is a sin and like any other sin, it needs to be dealt with in the only way possible- Rom. 13:9. It needs to be laid at the cross and repented of- Rom. 6:6, Eph. 4:22.

 

Christians should pray for the salvation of the homosexual the same way they would pray for any other person in sin- James 5:16, 1 Kings 13:6. They should treat homosexuals with the same dignity as they would anyone else because, whether you like it or not, they are made in the image of God- Gen. 1:26-27. However, this does not mean that Christians should approve of their sin. Christians should not compromise their witness for a politically correct opinion that is shaped by guilt and fear – Col. 4:5-6.

 

 

 

 

SHOULD HOMOSEXUALS BE ALLOWED TO MARRY ONE ANOTHER?
The aching questions in the society and some churches are:

Should a woman be allowed to marry another woman? Should a man be allowed to marry another man? Should they be given legal protection and special rights to practice their homosexuality?

 
Although, our society does not rely on the Bible for its moral truth but on humanistic and relativistic morals upon which it builds its ethical structure, the Bible, of course, condemns homosexuality- Lev. 18:22, Lev 20:13. It takes no leap of logic to discern that homosexual marriage is also condemned. Therefore, we must be prayerful, sober and vigilant – 1 Pet. 5:8-9.

 

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION
You do not win people to the Lord by condemning them and calling them names. This is why God says to speak with wisdom, grace, and love. Let the love of Christ flow through you so that the homosexuals can see true love and turn to Christ instead of away from Him
