Chick fil a has recently came out and said they don't agree with Homosexuality. They are one of the first big major business that I know of that have came out and said this openly. I stand behind them for their view and what God's say in his word. My thoughts have gone from in life.Am I wrong? What's it too me how one lives? I'm not the judge. I have had so many different thoughts and it always come back to the same one,yes it is wrong.
First off in Genesis when God created the world he created one man and one woman. We see this in the following verses.
21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
These verses alone should show how God indented for a man,woman union. If he would have wanted two men or two women he would have said so,but no he said, a man shall leave his mother and father(man and woman again) and cleave to his wife(woman) and they were both naked and not ashamed. He told them to go fourth and multiply. Let me say as well, can 2 men or 2 woman produce children? No,only male and female together is how human life comes about and produces.
Next verses found in Leviticus
Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination
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.
I don't even have to say anything on these verses because they speak for themselves. It's perfectly clear. Now people with these verses will say and use the defense well "It also says do not eat shellfish or some other rule in the section" If we find it wrong with the other then we should not eat shellfish either they say. My answer is we don't go by the Old Testament. We by the New Covenant. In the Old Testament their were examples of same sex relationships,but it was not brought on by God,he didn't support it. It was a man made thing they created on their own. When Jesus died on the cross he died for all these sins and took the price for them. He shed blood so that when we do sin we are forgiven and we are to turn from that sin. People will say it's not in the New Testament. It is and in the New Covenant it is still one of the sins that are wrong.
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire
These were two men from the old testament that had engage in unnatural acts with each other and it's brought up in the new because it is still wrong. It's saying your in danger of Hell if you don't turn from your sin.
Also these Verses
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,
5 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?
6 Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder
Here it is said again still saying One man and One woman,it still has not changed in the New Testament. Do you see anywhere in the bible where it was ok for the same sex to be together,no you don't.
Then in Romans we see
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Homosexuality would fall under verse 24 because people are following their hearts when they do this,not God.
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:
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
These verses point out again how it is wrong. It's saying it is unnatural to have relations other then man and woman.
So I hope all this makes sense for I am no bible expert,but it does clearly state it. Throughout all time it has been male and female and same sex has never been accepted because through out all the years it came from somewhere that is wrong and marriage is for man and woman. If it was right I believe it would have been told in the bible and carried through the generations to today. It isn't! Throughout everything it's always been man and woman because that is what the bible says and God says. I'm not a bigot or filled with hate toward others who choose this lifestyle. I love anybody and everybody and will treat everyone the same. I don't bully or treat anyone different,but I don't agree with the sin. One can turn away from that sin and be forgiven,but you must walk away from the sin your in just like any other sin. You can't keep living in that sin. Being gay is a sin. I hope I have made some sense in this post for as I said before I'm not bible expert but have my convictions as to what I believe it is saying. I respect others opinions so wish others would respect mine as well.
