of the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender (LGBT) lifestyle say they canít
help that they are born with a same sex attraction. Many of them have
compelling testimonies as to why they live the LGBT lifestyle.
Conversely, the Bible says that homosexuality is a choice and condemns
the lifestyle as an abomination. Who are we to believe? Do we take the
word of mankind or believe the Word of God?
dealing with homosexuality, the answer from a Christian perspective is
not popular with those who embrace it as an alternative lifestyle.
Christians see it no different than lying, stealing, idolatry, adultery
or murder. It seems that there is not much common ground. How are
Christians supposed to be relevant in todayís society regarding this
issue without compromising their beliefs?
people in Sodom and Gomorrah made the choice to embrace a homosexual
lifestyle. They elected leaders who held the same moral view and the
result was a society that was so evil that God would not allow them to
live in rebellion and executed every man, woman and child. But was that
I make choices every day regarding what to eat, where to go, what to
say, etc. God has set up physical and spiritual laws and it is up to
mankind to decide what to do with them. There are consequences for every
action you and I make, and when we choose to break Godís physical and
spiritual laws, why would God behave in a manner that is not consistent
with His character?
person seeking the Lord must ask themselves the following question: Is
homosexuality a sin? If it isnít, they will continue to live in that
rebellious lifestyle and will not seek change because they donít see a
need for it.
there is hope if a LGBT person can readily identify and agree that God
abhors the practice. The next step involves identifying where this
counterfeit lifestyle originated and ridding yourself of the demons who
have convinced you of its reality. These evil spirits cannot be removed
through counseling; they must be cast out in the name of Jesus!
you have been delivered from the demonic forces, it is time for you to
change your lifestyle and the Bible provides ample instruction on how to
accomplish that task.
previously stated, this message is not popular or politically correct,
and it will even be misconstrued by some as hate, but the truth of Godís
word does not change. Christians must be willing to stand up for the
truth or face the consequences of our inaction.
or someone you know is struggling with homosexuality, please watch the
webcast as we examine the Word of God together.
