Sexual Perversion in America – A Facebook Discussion – LGBTQ

Statement by a Facebook contributor in defense of the LGBTQ movement in America:
“But, gays and lesbians, as far as I am concerned, are born with that inclination and are also G-d’s children. They too hold Christian and Jewish beliefs and are not to be condemned for being who they are as human beings. Flaunting their sexuality is another issue. Gay marriage is another issue. I have friends who are gay and treat me with respect and caring. I do the same for them. Everyone’s truth is not the same. Religious beliefs are merely interpretations of scripture. There is no one truth, except we must live by THE GOLDEN RULE…”

Response by Rickey D. Holtsclaw…
Homosexuals are not “born” or genetically predisposed to engage in sexual perversion.  It is contrary to Scripture that our Holy, Just, Righteous, Loving, Compassionate, Creator – Jesus Christ, would condemn the act of homosexuality and then genetically predispose his creation to an eternity in Hell.  How does one reconcile the compassion and justice of our Creator with the “excuse” or reasoning for the sin of homosexuality via genetic predisposition?  It is at this juncture that a majority of the population in America fails to recognize the culprit behind the LGBTQ movement – Satan AKA The Evil One.

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me. “Why do you not understand what I am saying? It is because you cannot hear My word. “You are of your father the devil, and you want to do the desires of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him. Whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies. “But because I speak the truth, you do not believe Me. “Which one of you convicts Me of sin? If I speak truth, why do you not believe Me? “He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God.”  (Gospel of John 8:42-47)

“Truth” is not relative nor is it subjective. There is one embodiment of Truth i.e. Jesus Christ (John 14:6) Also, there is very little “extraneous” e.g. ceremonial – organizational – dietary Scripture that is open or subject to one’s interpretation.  Fact is, the overwhelming majority of God’s word is clearly defined on it own accord or through a contextual application.

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.  (John 14:6)

Scripture referencing salvation, personal conduct, “the law,” or that which is expected of us as we nurture our relationship with our Lord, is very clear and defies rebuttal or controversy. As per our subject at hand, “sexual perversion” is clearly condemned by Scripture in both the Hebrew and Greek Scriptures and those who participate in same are, in no way, participating in a “personal relationship” with the Lord Jesus Christ and are, in fact, in a state of rebellion and unfaithfulness toward the Lord.
**********
“Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” “He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word which you hear is not Mine, but the Father’s who sent Me.” (Gospel of John 14:23-24)

The “Good News” (Gospel of Christ) is, there is forgiveness at the Cross of Christ through repentance and faith in the shed blood of Messiah – forgiveness that is available to all who place their faith and trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We do a serious disservice to the homosexual community when we agree with, pamper and tolerate their rebellious behavior – when we fail to tell them the truth we are co-conspirators in paving the way to Eternal damnation for the homosexual; therefore, it is imperative that we tell them the truth in love, warn them, plead with them, but do not advocate their behavior simply because they are “nice” and “sociable” people.

“We know that the law is good if one uses it properly. We also know that the law is made not for the righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, for those practicing homosexuality, for slave traders and liars and perjurers—and for whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine that conforms to the gospel concerning the glory of the blessed God, which he entrusted to me.”  (1 Timothy 1:8-11)
**********
It is not possible to “reconcile” God’s judgment on sexual perversion – homosexuality as per this discussion – with God “justice,” “holiness,” “righteousness,” and suggest that God’s “truth” is subjective or relative and that the Homosexual is somehow acceptable to God while said individual is volitionally in rebellion to God’s will for his/her life.
**********
Rampant homosexual behavior is used in Scripture as an indicator of a divisive relationship between the Creator and a Nation’s people (Romans 1:18-32). This divisive relationship is readily apparent in the United States and as we continue to tolerate and cower to the demands of the LGBTQ movement, we are essentially advocating the destruction of our Nation.  America will never realize its potential while our Federal Government advocates the murder of our children (approx. 60-million since 1973) in the womb of their Mother and compromises with the radical, immoral, destructive behavior of the LGBTQ movement.

The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.

For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.

Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.

Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.

Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.  (Romans 1:18-32)

Stand up, speak the truth, yes, the “truth” is rarely popular and it’s often divisive, but chose whom you will serve, God or man! Personally, I am very proud of President Trump, his courage and tenacity, but understand that secure borders, a healthy economy, affordable healthcare and free trade will all surely falter and fail if they are not founded on a strong and secure foundation of ethical and moral behavior – such a “foundation” is not possible unless it is established or built upon the Rock…that is, a faithful and obedient relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. 
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
 **********
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. This is the judgment, that the Light has come into the world, and men loved the darkness rather than the Light, for their deeds were evil. For everyone who does evil hates the Light, and does not come to the Light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But he who practices the truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God. (Gospel of John 3:16-21)
