Hey everyone I have a question?

 

As we know, homosexuality is a sin in the bible. The question I have is this.

Why are Christians forced to accept it when we know the truth and how it is a sin?

Feedback will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I understand your question: you're wondering why when Christians know it's wrong, the world is yet still trying to force us accept homosexuality as "legitimate"

Scripture has this to say about it, and it's not just homosexuality but all sin:

"Therefore, since Christ has suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same purpose, because he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of men, but for the will of God. For the time already past is sufficient for you to have carried out the desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking parties and abominable idolatries. In all this, they are surprised that you do not run with them into the same excesses of dissipation, and they malign you; but they will give account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the dead. For the gospel has for this purpose been preached even to those who are dead, that though they are judged in the flesh as men, they may live in the spirit according to the will of God." (1 Peter 4:1-4, NASB, emphasis mine)

I think this says it all really.

For approximately the last 20 years, the small homosexual minority has been deliberately pushing their agenda for not only acceptance but a revolution in society.  The politicians have been playing along with this lobby and catering to it.  Christians are being forced to accept it also, but they don't have to. Here's a good article on this insidious agenda.

Well, no one can really force to accept anything against your will.  We are being forced to accommodate it and at least "publicly" accept it.  I will do neither.   I will not accommodate homosexuality because it doesn't deserve accommodation.

Its not exactly a biblical answer, but. . .the reason people want Christians to except sinful practices and say they are ok, is so that they have an excuse to do them without feeling the guilt. As the saying goes. . . misery loves company.

We don't have to think sin is good or right in any way.  We have become a hedonistic society.  So as Christians we fight against the currents of sin.  We dance to a different tune, so to speak, and we may be persecuted and discriminated against for doing so.  

I can love and really enjoy gay people without condoning what they do.  Some are not so likable.  But they still deserve God's compassionate love.  For while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.  But I can't go against my conscience and condone what I know is wrong or encourage it in any way.   However, if they call themselves Christians and persevere in habitual sins, I should have nothing to do with them after they have been given time to come to repentance.

because we live in a secular country that gives everyone the liberty to believe and do what they will that is not against the law...     a few people who have garnered much power in this country have stacked the Supreme Court to the point of deciding that homosexually is legal and we can not discriminate against them....        Simple as that.         It is the price we pay for personal liberty...

I might add that I do not accept it, but I do follow our laws and leave those who participate in that lifestyle to the lord to deal with.

Bringing up a nearly year old topic...

Dr. Chuck Missler pointed out the sins of humanity are also indications of how far we've devolved based on which sins are acceptable by and large.

They are in effect a meter of how well or poorly we are doing.

It begins in increments. Tiny, innocuous little compromises and easily covered choices to do or not do what we ought...

Then we embrace humanism and the magnanimous (fair play / level playing field) mentality...

And the old ways of sanctification (be ye separate) are condemned as judgmental and hate... 

And we are up to our eyeballs in the cesspool civilization has become wondering how on earth we got here.

IMUOE (in my understanding of events) the Body of Christ has been too lenient or too harsh on sins like homosexuality. Never the balance which we are called to in the Bible (to EVERYone an answer the reason for the hope that lies within you with gentleness and respect).

Homosexuals need Jesus the same way adulterers do, the same way divorcees do, the same way you and I do.

But because we've rammed the Old Testament Law down their throats for so long they are antagonistic towards New Testament Grace.

So very sad.

God hates divorce.

Yet how many of us have been divorced, married a divorcee, have parents or children who are divorced (sometimes many times over).

Yet we accept them / us.

Why?

      I didn't see any chat rooms for single women who are Christian and struggle with homosexuality and pornography. This problem exists among Christian women more than anyone wants to admit. It's is an excruciating painful and at times those struggling with these issue contemplate suicide at the thought of failing God. I need a Chat room to talk about how to find the strength to STOP satisfying sexual desires this way. This is a tremendous challenge as I am 52, single never married, still a virgin, and no children. I saved myself for marriage but it never happened.  Single, and especially older Christian women are required by God to be celibate, this is the challenge. Please allow this Chat room.

      When we think of the phrase "using someone", then most of us immediately have the idea of a person who is carnally manipulating someone else.   Another way to think of it is "taking advantage" of someone.  In Both cases, its wrong.   But with God, using Him, is Faith.   Let me explain.... Let say you paid  $100,000 for your kid to have the opportunity to take up space in a 4 yr Ivy League College, where they'll turn them into a politically corrected Christ Rejecting Socialist the first 2 yrs, then bake them until well done, the final 2 yrs. Now, any College will do this to your child for your money, but those will, most especially.  Yet, you paid to USE what they OFFER.  So, in this case your using their educational system, is your right, it is what you have paid for, its what you are supposed to do. Sure.   Now with God, ... He has paid with the Blood of Jesus, for you to come and use Him. If you are born again, then you have an open door of continual access to God, BECAUSE of what Christ has done for you. God actually sent the Bread Of Heaven down here to Die, so that by purchasing you back to Him with Christ's Blood, <>redeeming you for all eternity<>, you are given full access to God. 24/7, for as long as God lives. Listen, 100 yrs after you are passed from this earth an into God's glorious  eternity, you wont even remember that you were here.   So, what does it mean to be "Blood bought", and have full access to God? Its means you ALWAYS have full access to God.  That's literally what it means to be redeemed. You are redeemed from judgement for your sin, (Hell).... & you are redeemed from the curse of the law, so that the Law is no longer your JUDGE. The Law can't judge the born again, and God won't judge the born again, because JESUS has already been judged and SLAIN....>HE DIED.   = THERE IS YOUR JUDGEMENT DO YOU in ETERNITY......It fell on Jesus, on Earth. = The Cross. ITS GONE. !!   When the new Testament tells you that Jesus is the Light of the world, and that you have been translated from darkness TO LIGHT, this means you have entered into a  brand new eternal identity ("in Christ") and new situation. (New Creation IN Christ).    You are now God's.  Literally.  Bought with a price.  And that price is the Blood of Jesus.  You are NOT your own.  You are under NEW OWNERSHIP....  Jesus's BLOOD paid for you to belong to God, and not just until you mess up again...  The Blood of Jesus, is the Grace of God, and where your sin is found, God's Grace is greater then your sin.  IT not only covers it, but God does not even remember it.   Romans 4:8 goes even deeper into the Revealed Light of Redemption.   The Payment for all your sin Who Himself bled on the Cross...... is eternal, because the Blood that paid for your forgiveness is not ordinary Blood.  No, its GOD's Blood.   Jesus is God... And Jesus shed God's Blood for YOU, which is WHY its an eternal sacrifice... Once and for ALL.  Tho, this Holy Redeeming Blood is only APPLIED by God to those who BELIEVE and are Born Again.  Jesus said... "YOU MUST be Born again", and His Holy Blood poured out  provides the only means that God accepts to accept you, or anyone. Its available to everyone.   This SALVATION. This Free Gift of Righteousness.  This justification before God, BY Faith......   But, not everyone will BELIEVE.    Satan rejected God, because he wanted to be God.  The angels that followed Satan, rejected God.   Jesus the Christ, IS God.   So, Unbelievers down here, CHRIST REJECTORS..... are doing what Satan and his followers did, up there, and the end result is the same for them all.   Jesus said that if you do not believe in Him, believe that He alone is the Savior-Messiah, then you will die in your sin.  And you'll do more then that.  You'll meet God as eternal Judge upon your death,  and you'll pay for your Christ Rejection, forever.   So, reader, if you have not trusted in Christ, then do it now...... Now.   If You will take Christ into you heart right now, then God will take you into His heart, forever...... That God's Promise.  God is waiting for you, all your life.   He is not Lost, YOU ARE....... So, once God's Redeeming Blood has made you GOD'S Child, His property, His BODY of CHRIST, BORN AGAIN....then as God's Body of Christ, God actually wants you to USE HIM constantly, by Faith.   Now lets talk about that...     God is Love, and God has a work.  His work is to SAVE,  HELP, to RESTORE, to BLESS, TO HEAL, and to ENLIGHTEN, all of His Children, and to finally transform them into the very likeness of Jesus The Christ when you meet Him. And allowing God by your Faith to help you, with EVERYTHING,  is how you use God.   Using God, is to allow Him by you Faith, to do for you what HE LOVES TO DO.  As all this is just God manifesting His Love, as all these imputations. as all this HELP.   Love, God's love, is God doing for you because He Loves you....... exactly Like He Gave Christ to you as a GIFT.   If you are born again, then  You already USED His offer, you accessed It, you took advantage of God's Goodness, when you trusted in and believed on Christ, and God Saved you.   Using God, is to seek God by faith to do what His Love wants to do for you all the time. When you use Him, you are giving Him the FAITH that He says, pleases Him, and if you don't, you are not pleasing Him as He would want you to do it, constantly. Faith, is using God to give His supply  into all your needs and create inside you the God type happiness that He wants you to have, "the Joy of the Lord".   All this "riches in Glory" is gained when you by faith, use Him,  and He thereby does His heavenly work for you as He WANTS TO DO. God loves to be used for your benefit. He wants to be used by your Faith, as this pleases Him.  Be sure you do it.

      How did Jesus become our Savior. ????   Well obviously He is the reason you go to heaven. (Savior),= because you are born again, because you BELIEVED, and God  ACCEPTED your Faith, and gave you (made you)  His Righteousness.  ("New Creation IN Christ") Now its true that He was the Savior, always, even as a baby.....or as Simeon in Luke Ch 2, said.. "My Eyes have seen God's SALVATION", as he beheld baby Jesus. And in John 1:10, when Jesus "stood on the world HE CREATED", He was standing there as Savior of the World, He Created,  Colossians 1:16.... tho He had not saved it yet.   So, what 2 things did Jesus have to do, to BECOME our savior?   1.) He had to meet ALL the requirements of the LAW, and not fail. 2.) He had to die on the Cross, which means He became our sin bearer, our redeemer, our Justification, and our Blood Atonement.   In doing these 2 things, He became, our Savior....Literally, even if you are not  yet saved. See, here is the thing.... Jesus is LORD, no matter if you believe it or want Him to be.  And He is THE Savior, no matter if you are saved. Jesus does not become these things, once we believe them, but rather He is already, both.   One of the light-bulb moments a serious student of the New Testament will have, is when they realize that Salvation does not start when you believe....it is in fact finished 2000 yrs ago when Jesus walked out of that Tomb. It only becomes yours, when you believed.  Its APPLIED TO YOU< because you believed...  It was already there fo the lastr 2000 yrs.  Salvation was in the foreknowledge of God, before He even created Lucifer or the World or the Sun. Its been around for a while.  Salvation is something that Jesus finished 2000 yrs ago.  You get to have it, if you will believe.  If you do, then God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit, take up residence inside you, and because Jesus has obtained eternal redemption for you, and because He Himself IS Eternal life, that He Gives to you, then you are sealed into the Eternity of God Himself, and never let anyone try to convince you otherwise., as they are lying to you, Saint.   We can see that dying for sin is obvious as this explains the Cross.   God is judging Christ in our place, with those spikes, and that Crown, and that scourging  that came before Jesus was lifted up by those Spikes, between heaven and earth. Yet, before He could satisfy God's righteous judgment against our sin, by dying for our sin,  by becoming our sin....    Jesus first had to meet the requirements of the Law, so that this "curse of the law", could be taken off of us.  And Saint, never let a heretic try to put that Law back on you that Jesus shed His Blood for=  to deliver you from.   So, how did Jesus himself fully meet all the requirements of the Law?   He met them all, by being....... "God is Love". Jesus is God, and God is Love. See,... "love fulfills the Law". So you have this verse... :      Romans 13:10. "Love does no harm to a neighbor; therefore love is the fulfillment of the LAW."   We as the born again, understand that all the law and commandments found in the (Torah - Old Testament) are fulfilled when we keep the NEW Commandments, that Jesus gave us. And when we fail, this is a time to begin again and be thankful that JESUS DIDN'T FAIL. Jesus said,  """Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. """   So, the way Jesus fulfilled the law, so that the curse of the law was taken off the Redeemed, was to LOVE. Thats how He did it. GOD IS LOVE, AND JESUS IS LOVE. Remember this verse ???   John 15:13.  "There is no greater love than this—that a man should lay down his life for his friends""" And there is Jesus laying His life Down, on the Cross, and not just for His friends, but for His ENEMIES. That is LOVE.......That is how GOD LOVES..   And the way we stop sinning, is not by straining to try to stop.  Its not by fasting ourselves from the world.  As in both cases, this will actually cause you to be more drawn to the very sin you are trying to force yourself to stop doing. Remember that Christ said......."apart from me, you can do nothing" .. You can't bear Christian Fruit, .. You can't stop sinning.... and you can't LOVE Like GOD.......APART from Jesus. So, the way you do all this, is to be filled with God.   Paul describes this as.. "it is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me"..   Here is the math... God is Love.  If you are filled with God, then you are filled with LOVE.  And this love, is the Power of Christ to keep those 2 commandments. The lifelong process of being "conformed into the image of Christ" that is fulfilled entirely when we meet Jesus....(Our Eternal Inheritance)..... This process of conforming is literally the process of being conformed into the Love Of God. The more like Christ we are, the more OF God's Love we have become.     blessings,     B
