Message for the non-believers:
The Truth about "Homosexuality" according to the Bible:
"So God created human beings in his own image. In the image of God he created THEM; (Male and Female) he created them." Genesis 1:27
"Then the Lord God said, 'it is NOT GOOD for the (man) to be alone. I will make a (helper) who is JUST RIGHT FOR HIM."...
So the Lord God took out one of the man's ribs and closed up the opening. Then the Lord God MADE A (Woman) from the rib, and he brought HER to the MAN. 'At last!' the man exclaimed. 'This one is bone from my bone, and flesh from my flesh!
SHE will be called 'woman', because she was taken from 'man'.
This explains why a man leaves his father and mother and is joined to his wife, and the TWO are UNITED INTO ONE." Genesis 2:18 & 21-24
The answers given by the Bible is very plain to all. God created 'men' and 'women' and it is His original plan for humanity. It has also clearly answered the question about some were born gay. The Bible does not mention about some were born gay, some were not. If it did so, the Bible would not have described 'homosexuality' as one of the many sins committed by we human.
God cares so much for you so much that He doesn't want to let go of you, He is your Creator and I pray that you know it by heart. Though others might have failed to love you as who you are. God is on your side forever. He loves you enough to see you set free from confusion over your identity. In Him, there's life, there is truth in Him. Come to Him as you are, HE loves you so much.
Message for Christians:
"Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in (sexual sin), or who (worship idols), or (commit adultery), or are (male prostitutes), or (practice homosexuality), or are (thieves), or (greedy) people, or (drunkards), or are (abusive), or (cheat) people - none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
This is a very common verses that people quote as they discussed about Homosexuality in the Bible. But if you take time reading further, which is in v.11 you will know that, those who struggles with homosexuality are also the ones that GOD LOVES and CARES, they are able to be changed by the power of God, and if God gives other people a second chance, those who are struggling in homosexuality MUST NOT BE EXCLUDED from the love of God, for GOD IS LOVE, HE IS LOVE. He is no respecter of person. He LOVES ALL PEOPLE (PEOPLE OF THE EARTH). Even in verse 9-10, we can clearly see, all the others are also mentioned....(drunkards, adulterers, greedy people, etc) Those people can have a 2nd chance if they only repented and turned to God.....
"Some of you WERE once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God." 1 Corinthians 6:11
PAUSE AND THINK
What should we do as a Christian? Are we meant to walk in love, or walk in hatred to those who are struggling with Homosexuality? If we are not walking in love, can we truly reflect what we are, can we truly say that we love God by not loving people around us?" There will be no mercy for those who have not shown mercy to others.
But if you have been merciful, God will be merciful when he judges you." James 2:13"We are made right with God by placing our FAITH in JESUS CHRIST. And this is true for everyone who believes, no matter who we are." Romans 3:22"For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty for our sins." Romans 3:23-24 Is it enough just to show them understanding and love? Do we need to uphold the TRUTH OF JESUS? Yes, the TRUTH OF JESUS need to be uphold. For the TRUTH will set people free! FACT:
Many hurting Christians (those who struggles with Homosexuality - same sex struggle) have left the right churches to the 'gay' churches and the reason why is pretty simple, as they didn't find support in the church, some Christians weren't acting in love but with criticism. The 'gay' churches also proclaim 'love messages' and 'acceptance', they welcome the strugglers with an open arm. BUT ONE THING they lack, they don't proclaim the TRUTH IN JESUS.
