Who Said That Homosexuality is "Gay"?
By David J. Stewart
What is "gay" about being a sexual pervert? What is gay about being a prime candidate for the deadly disease of AIDS? What is gay about flying in the face of God's moral laws and violating the Divine arrangement for male and female? What's gay about a samesex marriage that cannot produce any biological children? What's gay about a lifestyle that is synonymous with drunkenness, drug addiction, suicide and wide-spread venereal disease?
Homosexuality is a flagrant insult to God's established order for the sexes. There is nothing "natural" about homosexuality. No one is born "that way." Notice in Romans chapter 1 that homosexuality is rooted in a lack of gratitude towards God, and a rebellious departure from God's revealed Truth. Homosexuality is a vile sin.
Romans 1:18-28 states...
"For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath showed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural
use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly (indecent), and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient. "
There is nothing "gay" about the manner in which Freddie Mercury, lead singer of the Rock 'N' Roll band Queen died. Mr. Mercury was purported to have homosexual lovers all around the world. Queen's music glamorized the homosexual lifestyle in songs such as, Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy. Freddie died an untimely death at age 46 from the A.I.D.S. virus. Do you call this "gay"? Was the untimely death of homosexual moviestar, Rock Hudson, gay? Hudson was only 59-years-old when he died from complications from the AIDS virus. Literally hundreds of Catholic priests have died of the A.I.D.S. virus just in the United States alone, because the priesthood is saturated with homosexuals and pedophiles. There have been over 12,000 reports of children being molested since 1950 by over 4,500 Catholic priests!!! Ask some of the victims if homosexuality is a "gay" lifestyle? Why has the newsmedia remained eerily silent about the fact that nearly ALL pedophiles within the Catholic Church are also HOMOSEXUALS???
Was it a "gay" experience for the dozens of rape and murder victims of John Gacy and Jeffrey Dahmer, both flaming homosexuals? Certainly, any decent person would have a serious issue with the homosexual organization, NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association). Don't kid yourself, homosexuality and pedophilia are closely related, because they are both forms of utter immorality. Wherever you find homosexuality, you will find many other sins. It is a matter of morality. Homosexuality is sin. The Bible assures us that the "pleasures of sin will only last for a season" (Hebrews 11:25).
Homosexual: There is Hope In Jesus Christ!
If you have been dwelling in the cesspool of homosexuality, there is hope in Jesus Christ. God will forgive ANYONE who acknowledges that they have sinned (Romans 3:10,23) and are guilty under God's Holy Law (Romans 3:19), and trusts Jesus Christ to forgive their sins (Romans 10:13; Acts 10:43). Eternal life is a free gift (Romans 5:15; 6:23), freely given (Ephesians 2:8,9), and freely received (Revelation 22:17). One does not have to give up being a homosexual to get saved; God will take care of those issues after you are saved. Our part is simply to believe on Jesus Christ, placing our trust upon Him alone to wash our sins away with His precious literal blood. We are saved by Christ's righteousness, which is why we don't need any of our own (Isaiah 64:6). Amen! What a Wonderful Savior!
This does not give anyone a license to sin (Romans 3:31). Every believer will stand trial and give account for the good and bad done in the flesh (2nd Corinthians 5:10); however, this is totally separate from salvation itself. Salvation is not dependent upon the manner in which we live, and only a self-righteous unsaved person would say otherwise. 2nd Corinthians 5:21 plainly states... "For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him." Romans 4:5 clearly states... "But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness." Only one kind of person can be justified according to Romans 4:5... THE UNGODLY.
"Repentance is the recognition of my sinnership — the owning before God that I am as vile as He has declared me to be in His holy Word."

If you want to be saved, then come by faith as a guilty sinner to the merciful Savior, Jesus Christ, and He has promised to forgive your sins and save you... "Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool" (Isaiah 1:18). All you need to do is BELIEVE (trust) upon Jesus Christ, because of the precious literal blood that He sacrificed to pay for our sins... "Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot."
If you truly want to be "gay" in the proper sense, then receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior this moment... "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name."
Ye Must Be Born Again! | You Need HIS Righteousness!
