ARGUMENTS FROM THE HOMOSEXUAL WORLD
The unconverted world will say that you can do whatever you want AS LONG AS ITS NOT HURTING ANYBODY ELSE. Robbing a bank is hurting others, but they don't think that homosexuality is hurting others. They say that it's none of their business what other people do as long as it's not affecting them.
Homosexuality/Lesbianism does hurt others - it hurts a whole society. It finally goes where it has gone today - same sex marriage, then raising children within that context. It breaks down the God made and ordained family. God created man and woman; he created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. God made woman for man. He brought them together, and said they should reproduce. No where in the Old Testament is same sex love or marriage sanctioned, in fact just the opposite is the truth of the matter. And the New Testament upholds the Old Testament truth on this issue.
The UN-converted world can say all it wants to say on this matter, it does not affect God, and his law regarding sex and marriage. Anything contrary to God's laws and decrees, is hurting society.
There are obvious problems from homosexual behavior that can hurt those involved, but:
1) It is said that those people involved with the homosexual acts have consented among themselves to put themselves at risk, so as long as nobody was forced into those acts, then we shouldn't have the right to tell them what they can and can not do.
Of course this is said by un-converted people. Homosexuals and Lesbians want to do what they do, so they will give this argument. It is the same argument used by those who want "freedom of choice" or "abortion on demand" for abortions. Because it is argued and done by those who will not, do not want, God's laws and the Bible to rule them, it is quite natural to use this argument. They think there is no risk but between the two people, but that is not so, because same sex lovers will, like un-converted heterosexuals, have sex before "marriage" - have divorces - have more than one marriage, have sex with whoever of the same sex, before and during periods of "singleness" just as the heterosexuals do. Eventually sexual disease is the result, as it is in the heterosexual world.
GOD does tell is what to do to live within his laws and way of life, and that includes our sex life. Disobey God's sex laws and you get into trouble sooner or later.
2) They will say that there are problems with heterosexual intercourse, so this can't be an argument against homosexual behavior. People can get diseases and such from heterosexual intercourse.
The gays look at the heterosexual world and can rightly see that that world also has diseases..... of course it does, because they disobey God's sex laws..... no sexual intercourse before marriage; no adultery in marriage; and under the New Testament no flippant divorces. If the world was obeying God's laws on sex there would be no sexual diseases. As God said to ancient Israel "obey my laws and I will put none of these diseases upon you" - Ex. 15:26.
3) They will say that whatever physical maladies come from homosexuality, they are societal. In other words, they don't need to exist per se. For instance, homosexuals have the highest rate of AIDS carry in the United States. They'll say this doesn't necessarily need to be that way. Gays could just give each other orgasms through masturbation or something. I think that gonorrhea of the throat may be more prevalent among homosexuals, but they'll say that this doesn't have to be the case, either. They could take precautions just as heterosexuals do, who also engage in oral sex.
Yes, correct to a point...... but the point is the un-converted world will only do it to a point; the heterosexual world only does it to a point, but will not do it to the full point of God's laws on sex. The gay world would be no different..... they would only do it to a point; when the fleshly appetite rises strong, they would make all the same mistakes that the heterosexual world makes in its fleshly appetite with sex.
4) Homosexuality involves more than just sex. People will say that we have no right to tell people who they can and can not love. Even those who think that homosexuality brings about physical maladies, or might, will say that love between people is what really matters.
Again, of course they will say this, they are un-converted in spirit, they are governed by their flesh. They do not know what "love" is, or how love should be directed and to whom sexual love should be manifested, and when it should be manifested. They are governed by themselves, or as the proverb says, "There is a way that seems right unto men, but the end thereof are the ways of death" - Prov. 14: 12.
The natural mind will say you have no right to say whom I should love [sexually - we are speaking in the sexual context]. BUY God says HE HAS THE RIGHT to say how we should live, but he forces no one; choosing to ignore him and his ways, brings sin, diseases, wars, sickness, sexual disease, fornication, adultery, broken homes, gay marriages, and all the wrong ways of life, that are contrary to God's ways of life.
Well, those are among the most prevalent views of the world today on this matter.
YES..... the typical UN-converted mind-set of the world; so the world reaps what it sows.
