God’s Revealed Truth or Public Opinion….

image

This will be very controversial, I am sure.  But, as I said from the beginning, you won’t find any political correctness here on this blog.  I aim to speak the truth and only the truth.

At Mass this morning, Fr. spoke the words “Is it God’s revealed truth, or Public opinion”  and it really struck me.  I then realized this is what I must write about today.

What am I talking about?  Ireland has voted to legalize Gay Marriage and that has resounded around the world.  image

I am not going to argue the point of “How” they became Homosexuals….as many will claim they were born that way.  For one thing, God created each and every one of us very good.  If, by chance, satan intervened and changed the DNA of the individual while in the womb (which he can do by the way,) that is not the same as God creating them that way.  This would mean however, that they have a very heavy cross to bear.

We all have crosses to bear but that doesn’t mean we can break God’s laws or become bullies to get our own way because of the crosses we carry.

What does God have to say about this:

Leviticus 18:22  You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Romans 1:26-28

For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.

Leviticus 20:13

If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

1 Timothy 1:10

The sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine,

1 Corinthians 7:2

But because of the temptation to sexual immorality, each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.

Jude 1:7

Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.

So we can see that this is God’s revealed Truth about Homosexuality.   He tells us that we are endangering our souls by having a sexual relationship with the same sex.  God does not say that you are endangering your soul if you are Homosexual……only if you participate in sexual acts together.

Should a man and woman participate in sexual acts before they are married, we too are endangering our souls.  God has commanded that we not commit the sin of “fornication”.image

  • Sex before marriage, pre-marital experience, …. the Word of God implies it all by calling it fornication. It knows no exception. It allows none. Renaming fornication does not change the act or remove the consequence. Those who commit fornication, sin.
  • This message, like all other true Bible messages, is designed both for believers and disbelievers. “Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God” Romans 10:17, …. The fact that premarital sex, fornication, homosexuality, are laughed at by the world should be of little consequence to one who seeks for truth, or to one who believes the truth. It is the truth that shall make you free (John 8:32).  So if one believes God and would follow His word, he must stand on the simple conviction that fornication is wrong. Consider what the word says. “Marriage is honorable in all and the bed undefiled, but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge” Hebrews 13:4. In the Bible, a prostitute, a harlot, a whore, were all guilty of the same thing- fornication. One may prostitute himself for any kind of gain, not just money. It may be the pride of continued association, or perhaps a weekend all-expense trip paid to a neighboring city. Prostitutes, street walkers, call girls, those who dwell in plush penthouses, all have one thing in common: they commit fornication. It is a sin against God, against His will, His word and His way. Judgement will fall on those who are guilty of fornication and who fail to turn in repentance.
  • Paul writes in I Corinthians 6:9-11, “Know you not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived, neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners shall inherit the Kingdom of God”. You say, “What am I to do then? For I am guilty.” Read the next verse, “But such were some of you”. According to Acts 18:8, “And many of the Corinthians, hearing, believed and were baptized”. The guilty Corinthians were forgiven, redeemded.   For this reason Paul writes in I Corinthians 7:2, “Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife and every woman have her own husband”. Temptation is not a sin fornication is. (bible.ca)

So, why is the homosexual agenda not satisfied with civil unions?  Why must they insist on marriage… do they think they become sanctified in God’s eyes by becoming married?  Not gonna happen, as God tells us;  the act of being involved sexually with the same sex is an abomination in His sight.  So, who is behind this?  satan of course.  God created man and woman to become united and have children.  Father, Mother, Children…that is the way God created and set up our world.  These are the Laws that we must follow, anything other than this is coming from satan.  We condemn ourselves by instituting laws contrary to God’s laws.  Homosexuality and Abortion are acts that preclude children.  What will happen to society if these become the norm?  No more children, no more world.

So wonder no more why we as a world will be undergoing a great purification.  When a society becomes very sinful, God has always purged those nations, while some have been totally annihilated.    We, ourselves are now going through the same thing for this exact reason.  We have gone against God to the extreme and now He has to bring us back to right reason and because He wants to save our souls.  We were made for Him, not satan.  satan has been on track to deceive the nations from day one and to bring as many souls as possible down to hell with him.

So, if you are going along with public opinion and do not dare go against the grain on these issues, what will you say to God when you see Him face to face on judgment day or during the time of illumination…..It is time we stand up for Truth and not worry about what others will say about us.   Yes, we will be persecuted but God will take care of it.  It is much wiser to be in God’s court than in satans.

This whole issue has nothing to do with tolerance or bigotry, But everything to do with God’s Laws and saving our Souls.  Do what is right and save your soul for all eternity.  Trust me, you will be glad you did when the time comes for your judgment.

Say YES to God, and NO to satan!!!!!

  1. Hi there. I commend that this website (this excerpt is actually taken from bible.ca) is against sex outside of marriage. However, I am a student of the Bible, and have researched and studied various Bible versions in various languages. For the most part, there is identification of ‘whore’, ‘harlot’ and ‘prostitute’ in this article. However, this part is problematic, in my opinion:

    One may prostitute himself for any kind of gain, not just money. It may be the pride of continued association, or perhaps a weekend all-expense trip paid to a neighboring city.

    The verb ‘prostitute’ can mean different things. I agree that a woman can prostitute herself for something besides money. Tamar received 3 items as a pledge for playing the part of a prostitute (I do not condone what she did, but Judah himself said she was more righteous than him). He suspected she was a harlot (zonah), because of where she was at, a crossroads probably, and/or that she wore a veil. His friend Hirah asks the residents where the harlot (qedeshah) was that was openly by the wayside? The residents responded that there was no harlot (qedeshah) there. This second word for harlot likely means a religious/temple/cult prostitute. Or, it may be a tactic admission that Tamar was in fact not a harlot, but just played the part of one, once, and for a pledge of 3 items (signet ring, bracelet, staff). This is in Genesis 38:14-26. Judah was going to punish her with fire, either as branding or burning her body, dead or alive, which was supposedly an ancient punishment for adultery according to Adam Clarke, for instance. In Gen 38:13, 25, Judah is called ‘her father in law”, and in Gen 38:11 she was ‘reserved’ for Shelah, Judah’s 3rd son, so in a sense Shelah and Tamar were probably considered married, at least in a betrothed manner.

    “It may be the ‘the pride of continued association'”? No offense, but I’m not sure what this even means. I agree receiving good(s) in exchange for sex can qualify one for being a prostitute, not just money. If you notice in Genesis 38, an animal was to be given to Tamar for her ‘services’ to Judah. She ultimately left and didn’t receive the agreed upon the animal as payment.

    The meaning of the words translated whore/harlot/prostitute in the Bible appears to be a professional or unmarried female prostitute, except when about cities, where it appears to mean a spiritual whore/harlot/prostitute.

    The words in Ezekiel 16:33 are evidence of what a whore/harlot/prostitute is. ‘They give gifts to all whores” has to mean something. By the quote on the webpage itself, the term ‘fornicator’, ‘adulterer’, ‘and whoremonger’ are used, which sounds like they are not the same. There is mention of prostitutes, street walkers, call girls, etc.. this is pretty much right on the money of what the words mean in the Bible. But what does it mean to ‘prostitute [verb] for the pride of continued association’? No offense, but I don’t recall ever hearing that as a definition anywhere of what someone can prostitute oneself for. I agree that the verb ‘prostitute’ can mean more than to ‘prostitute for gain’, but the implication in Leviticus 19:29, for instance, is that ‘Prostitute not thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore’ sounds like the verb ‘prostitute’ means to prostitute for money/good(s), and ‘whore’ sounds like a female prostitute. I have many more passages which sound like ‘whore’ and ‘harlot’ means ‘prostitute’ in the Bible, I can list them if you want. I think the website is basically on the right track here, but this ‘prostitute [verb] for the pride of continued association’ doesn’t make sense to me, and I personally think this article should be changed and this phrase deleted, because it is highly confusing, in my opinion. I however do applaud that this website preaches against sex outside of marriage, and I am not supporting the latter at all. Please don’t take this the wrong way. Hopefully it is seen as constructive criticism.

    The ‘strange’/’foreign’/’estranged’ woman in Proverbs is likely a married prostitute/adulterous prostitute/prostitute who is a serial adulteress. If not that, she is likely a serial adulteress. Evidence is seen in Prov 7:5,8,10-12,16,19,25-27 of what she is. Prov 2:17, 5:9-10, 6:26-35, 7:19, possibly 9:17 are evidences she is married. Prov 2:19, 7:26, 9:18 and 6:26 in the ‘LXX’ are evidences she has many lovers/victims/partners. I can more fully describe her if you’d like. One of the terms for her in Proverbs means foreign woman (Prov 7:16 is evidence of her foreign aspect), and the other major term for her in Proverbs can imply an estranged wife. A estranged wife can commit adultery with her husband with many men. Foreign women were likely often prostitutes in ancient Israel, at least in part because of Lev 19:29, Deut 23:17-18 ‘frowning’ on Israelite prostitution.
