First we are going to talk about Homosexuality. Scientist still haven’t found a gay gene but, they have found that a Homosexuals genetic make up is different that that of a heterosexual. Most scientist still think there is a gay gene but it still has yet to be discovered. Homosexuality appears in every species. So it goes to be understood that it is not natures mistake but a genetic disposition. Just like having brown hair and blue eyes. There is no choice involved. They are just born this way. And as the song goes “God doesn’t make mistakes!“.
If you believe in the Bible being the word of God written through man, then it stands to reason that you believe that God created some people with a Homosexual disposition. If you take the Bible literally then you cannot just pick and choose which teachings are convenient for you. You must believe it as a whole and follow it’s teachings. I am getting sick of hearing homosexuality being compared to cannibalism, mental illness, and bringing on the wrath of God in the form of every horrible thing that has happened in the United States. From 9/11 to hurricane Katrina and more recently hurricane Sandy. It is unfortunate that the people making these statements are getting on the news. Obviously the news doesn’t screen the people they interview they just want the sensationalism. These people are mentally ill and really, really need to be medicated. My God is not about Hate. My God is love. God needs no rhyme or reason to bring on storms, diseases, or mental illnesses. According to the Bible we are not supposed to understand everything that God does nor should we question him. We are also not supposed to condemn we are supposed to pray. Approximately 80% of our nation claim to be Christians. One of the ten commandments is “thou shall not kill”. Yet we send troops over to kill our so called enemies and we didn’t even send them to the right country. 50% of all marriages in the United States end in divorce. “You shall not commit adultery”. I am sure that you see where I am going with this. There are many things in the Bible that address many so called sins. There are a total of 7 passages referring to homosexuality. Most of them are questionable. You see it is based on the absolute translation. When you go back and study those who translated the Bible you will see that most of those scriptures can and may be translated to refer to Male Prostitutes and not Homosexuals at all. And Jesus said nothing about homosexuals at all. But back to God. Let’s say God did create Homosexuals this way. Would God have condemned Homosexuals before they were even born unto this earth? If God created homosexuals this way then who are you to question God’s will? The Bible was written Thousands of years ago and translated by Thousands of people over the years. Maybe God changed his mind. Maybe it is in the parts of the Bible that were never translated or in the portions not released to the general public but hidden by the Catholic Church. Which is often dealing with pedophile Priest and other issues within their church. If you believe the Bible is the word of God then you must not eat shrimp, for instance. But I guarantee there are a large number of so called Christians that are enjoying shrimp cocktail probably even as I write this article. And you will notice the demand for shrimp is pretty high here in America.
In the short, I guess that what I am trying to say is if you so strongly believe in the Bible. And you believe it is the word of God. Then put your actions where you mouth is. Follow it to the letter. Don’t just sit around judging Homosexuals and pick and choose what portions of the Bible you are going to live by. Live by the entire word of God as it was written Thousands of years ago. For someday God will sit in judgement of you!!!
