I should not have to write a headline or statement like this: Homosexuality is wrong. The reason I should not have to is that God has already made known to every human heart the truth of this statement. However, the world in our day contradicts this blatantly. When I say “blatantly” I mean that society not only says that homosexuality is right but that those who do not support it are wrong. This could not be more backwards. As a result, the children of our society are confused and put at more risk for sexual temptation and its consequences than they otherwise would be. Homosexuality is outside of the will of God. It is a sin. It is wrong. We who know this must say so lest children continue to be misled by society.
Adopting and perpetuating the euphemism of “gay” is simply a way of attempting to sanitize and legitimize something that is inherently unclean. Taking something bad and calling it something good does not make it good.
This does not mean that it is right for anyone to show disrespect – in any degree – to homosexuals. They deserve our compassion, not our condemnation. We should always be gentle with those who have turned aside from the truth, for in that way we have a better chance of turning them back to the truth. Not only that, but even if we have not committed the sin of homosexuality we have committed other sins. Therefore, who are we to stand in judgment of another?
Everyone is going to heaven, but we want to get there by the path of righteousness (i.e. morality), not the path of unrighteousness (i.e. immorality).
Let us all repent and turn to Him who is able to redeem us from all sin by His loving presence and watchful eye: Jesus Christ our Lord.
