Is Homosexuality Just Another Way of Life?
by Guyton E. Montgomery
Homosexuality is a problem that is plaguing the nation. Television, movies, magazines, and music are bringing this abomination into our homes. Children are being taught that this is just another choice and that there is nothing wrong with it. Something must be done!
The problem is: if a person even suggests they disagree or disapprove of homosexuality they are labeled as a bigot. It is a sad thing when one standing for righteousness is condemned and ridiculed for their actions.
What is most of all troublesome is that Christians have played into the Devil's hand and have remained silent on this issue. They might from time to time condemn it behind closed doors, but will not publicly take a stand. It is essential for one to remember the words of Edmond Burke when he said, "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." Good men have been doing nothing far too long and evil has been triumphing when it comes to homosexuality. It is time that Christians speak up and let the truth be known regarding homosexuality.
God has always condemned the practice of homosexuality. Leviticus 18:22 says, "Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind: it is abomination." How much clearer can God make the command'? He is saying that men are not to lie with men. An abomination is anything that is disgusting, hated or loathed. This is how God views homosexuality. If this was the only place in the Bible condemning homosexuality, it would be enough for us to know that it is wrong!
Paul also wrote, through the inspiration of God, to the church at Rome regarding this great sin. Notice what he wrote, "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... " (Romans 1:27). The men were leaving the women and using each other in a way that was not natural! The advocates for homosexuality want us to believe that it is normal and there is nothing wrong with it, but God says it is not natural and it is wrong.
Don't forget human reasoning. Where would we be if God made us homosexuals? The answer is simple. We wouldn't be here, for man with man or woman with woman cannot reproduce. Only man and woman when joined together can produce after their kind. Remember in the Garden of Eden when God saw Adam and said that it was not good for man to be alone. God did not create another man, but instead he created woman. The reason for this is that God's will is for man to be with woman (Genesis 2: 18-25).
In the Old Testament one can read that God disapproved of homosexuality so much that he destroyed two cities, Sodom and Gomorrah. It was not part of the city that he destroyed, but the whole city (Genesis 19:23-29). He destroyed them so completely that it is still not known for sure where they were located.
The Devil would love for Christian to remain quiet and accept homosexuality as just "another lifestyle." However, God has condemned homosexuality and Christians are not to tolerate it. They are to take the all powerful word of God and teach the truth (Romans 1:16; Hebrews 4: 12).
