Christianity and Homosexuality Part 2

 

 

 

 

 

(Sermon Note/ Sunday School/ Bible Study)

 

 

 

 

 

“That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;” Ephesians 4:22

 

 

 

 

 

Read:  Romans 1:21-28

 

 

 

 

 

INTRODUCTION

So far we have discussed what homosexuality really is, societal attitude and what the Bible says about it. Now, we shall be examining the dangers involved in homosexuality, Christian’s response to the homosexual and homosexual marriages.

 

 

 

 

 

THE DANGER INVOLVED

Unlike other sins, this sexual sin has a judgment administered by God Himself: He gives them over to their passions and “to do those things which are not convenient—-in the old sense of that word, that is, “not becoming,” “indecorous,” “shameful.” (Romans 1:26-28). This means that their hearts are allowed to be hardened by their sins. As a result, they can no longer see the error of what they are doing- Proverbs 10:17; Hebrews 3:7-10. Without an awareness of their sinfulness, there will be no repentance – 2 Corinthians 4:3-4. Without repentance, there will be no forgiveness (Acts 8:22). Without forgiveness, there is no salvation Hebrews 2:3, Romans 5:1; 2 Corinthians 7:10; Romans 10:10.

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHRISTIAN’S RESPONSE TO THE HOMOSEXUAL

Just because someone is gay does not mean that we cannot love him (or her) or pray for them – Leviticus 19:18; 1 Timothy 1:5. Homosexuality is a sin and like any other sin, it needs to be dealt with in the only way possible – Romans 13:9. It needs to be laid at the cross and repented of – Romans 6:6; Ephesians 4:22.

Christians should pray for the salvation of the gay communities the same way they would pray for any other person in sin – James 5:16, 1 Kings 13:6. They should treat gays with the same dignity as they would anyone else because, whether you like it or not, they made in the image of God – Genesis 1:26-27. However, this does not mean that Christians should approve of their sin. Christians should not compromise their witness for a politically correct opinion that is shaped by guilt and fear – Colossians 4:5-6.

 

 

 

 

 

SHOULD GAYS BE ALLOWED TO MARRY ONE ANOTHER

The aching questions in the society and some churches are: Should a woman be allowed to marry another woman? Should a man be allowed to marry another man? Should they be given legal protection and special rights to practice their homosexuality?

Although, our society does not rely on the Bible for its moral truth but on humanistic and relativistic morals upon which it builds its ethical structure, the Bible, of course, condemns homosexuality – Leviticus 18:22, 20:13. It takes no leap of logic to discern that gay marriage is also condemned. Therefore, we must be prayerful, sober and vigilant 1 Peter 5:8-9.

 

 

 

 

 

CONCLUSION

You do not win people to The LORD by condemning them and calling them names. This is why God says to speak with wisdom, grace, and love. Let the love of Christ flow through you so that the homosexuals can see true love and turn to Christ instead of away from Him.

 

 

 

 

 

WHAT MORE IS GOD SAYING?

2 Timothy 2:22 – Flee from all evil desires.

1 Corinthians 6:9 – The unrighteous have no place in God’s Kingdom.

1 Thessalonians 4:3 – Abstain from fornication.

Titus 2:12 – Live soberly, righteously and Godly.

Leviticus 18:22 – Flee from all abominable acts.

Romans 12:9 – Cling to that which is good.

1 Peter 5:8 – Be prayerful and watchful.

 

 

 

 

 

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
