A young pastor once made the comment, “America is intolerant of intolerant people and will not tolerate it anymore!”
I believe this quote sums up America’s attitude towards homosexuality.
Pluralism is the conviction of a society that says religious, ethnic, political and racial groups should be able to thrive in a particular society. We are not a pluralistic society. We are a society that says, “No, you cannot tell me what is right because I believe truth is subjective.” By stating, “truth is subjective” you have yourself said truth is not truth; it is only an interpretation of truth. So what is the truth about homosexuality? Who is the real authority on the issue? It certainly is not an individual person speaking from their own limited knowledge- it must come from God. God is the authority on all things.
“You have heard that it was said ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you anyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery against her in his heart.” Matthew 5:27-28
What we have failed to realize, is that pointing the finger at homosexuality while neglecting our own adultery (speaking to heterosexuals) means we ourselves are in the wrong. Sex outside of the sacred covenant of marriage, marriage between man and wife that is, is adulterous and directly defies God’s design.
“Haven’t you read”, he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female‘ Matthew 19:4
You may look at God’s Word and easily conclude that sex is ONLY designed for man and woman within the marriage covenant. If you choose not to do that, then the natural revelation of a man’s reproductive organs and a woman’s reproductive organs fitting precisely each other’s should be evidential enough. Dr. Ravi Zacharias once said, “[We are a society who thinks only with their feelings and not with their mind].” We have grown comfortable in our estimate of what is right in our own eyes.
“For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature;” Romans 1:26
The question is, will we truthfully acknowledge what God has already said?
