Gay Christian

QUESTION: Gay Christian - What's wrong with a lifestyle choice?

ANSWER:

The lifestyle claim of a gay Christian is not supported in the Bible. We see in the teachings of the Word of God that there are many Scriptures that go against a homosexual lifestyle (Genesis 19:1-13; Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:26-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9).

A Christian is unable to justify the lifestyle choice of homosexuality, since it directly contradicts the teachings of both the Old and New Testament. Some people argue "Jesus didn't speak specifically on this issue!" Jesus had no reason to address it. The Jewish people already understood that God spoke directly against homosexuality throughout the Old Testament.

The Roman Empire ruled over Jewish people and they were well known for their sexual immorality, especially during the worship of their pagan gods. The Jewish people didn't want anything to do with that lifestyle.

Later when Paul wrote to the Romans, he made it clear that this lifestyle was not acceptable. A Christian's lifestyle reflects the light of Christ and the transformation from the old self to the new creation that God has promised. Sexual purity is possible!

The homosexual lifestyle may continue to be a temptation following salvation, but the Lord has promised to always give a way out from any situation. God promises the strength for victory over sin, including homosexuality, to all those who believe in Jesus Christ for their salvation (1 Corinthians 6:11; 2 Corinthians 5:17).

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
