Standing up for the Bible!

I just had to do a post on this!  I was very pleased to see someone in the public eye take a stand for what is written in God's holy word.  Standing up for what the Bible speaks for (and in this case, against) takes guts in this day and age, especially those who are in the public eye.  You probably know by now I'm talking about what Kirk Cameron has said in an interview he gave with Piers Morgan.  He said that homosexuality is unnatural and detrimental to society. 

I, for one, totally agree. 

The Bible says in Leviticus 20:13 "If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death: their blood shall be upon them."  The Bible also says in the first chapter of Romans "For this cause God gave them up until 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, and receiving in themselves that recompence 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: Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness, full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity: whiperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of eveil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."

I say all of that to say this..its obvious (to me, anyways) that God is not for homosexuality from what I read in my Bible (which is the King James Version).  I am glad to see someone take a stand for what they believe in..especially when it is God's truth.  In this day and age, its something we don't see very often.  More times than not, people make the bad look good and the good look bad, if you know what I mean. 

This subject is something that hits home more than most know.  While I won't (and can't) go into details, I will say this.  I pray for those who are living this lifestyle.  I do not in any way condone it, but I know that God does love each and every one of us, despite what we do.  But it is up to us to live our lives according to God's word.  We can't do what we want and expect God to turn a blind eye. 

I should probably close with that thought, before I say more than I should on the subject!

  1. Good for you for writing about this, Melanie! I totally agree. It's amazing to me how many Christians think homosexuality is okay - because it's clearly NOT okay with God from what He says in His Word. Good thoughts.


I love hearing your comments! Thanks for stopping by!
