This is all presented in love. It is not intended to be offensive in any way at all. This simply presents GOD’s original unchangeable plan and Word for humanity, which is unchangeable, irrevocable, and non-negotiable for all time. This has always been clearly stated in GOD’s WORD in the Bible, as written between 1500 years BC and 100 years AD, which no human has the right to change in any detail at all, irrespective of any so-called claims, rights, or authority to do so.
GOD’s ways are timeless, and are not affected, changed, or varied, in any way at all by human cultures, trends, choices, traditions, changing opinions, time, or any other worldly changes, variations, factors, conditions, or statute laws, that people try to impose on society.
GOD has allowed humanity to have freedom of choice, and if people choose to ignore GOD’s instructions, they are free to do so, but need to realize that every choice has an eventual consequence, good or bad.
GOD’s Word - with its laws, principles, and standards - is HIS absolute and ultimate truth, in every way, which is not open to change or challenge.
GOD wants everyone to live a happy and successful life; however HIS Word and Truth are unchangeable and remain the same eternally. No one has any right whatsoever to change it in even the smallest way
Human authorities decide they can do better, and install laws to protect the changes they make. They assume their own authority to do so. People have freedom of choice; but the consequences never change.
Every person has the right to their own individual choice, as long as it does not harm others, or impose on other’s individual rights and freedom. However having the right and freedom to do something, does not necessarily make it the right thing to do.
I am merely revealing the following information so that people may know their options. Factional groups have rated whatever clashes with their opinions, as ‘offensive.’ They have even attempted to rate the Bible - GOD’s own Truth - as a book of hate speech.
1 John 4:8 &16 Whosoever does not love does not know GOD, because GOD is love. And so we know and rely on the love GOD has for us. GOD is love. Whoever lives in love lives in GOD, and GOD in them.
This is based on the original and eternally unchangeable instructions and commandments of our Creator - The GOD of LOVE.
Whether one believes it or not, GOD is the Creator of humanity, and all things in existence.
(Please see: ‘Creation v Evolution.’)
Sexual sin includes, in GOD’s eyes, the immorality of promiscuity, adultery, fornication, and homosexuality.
If you buy a motor vehicle, you only use the instruction book for that make of vehicle, you do not ignore it, or throw it away, or use an instruction book meant for another make of vehicle, or just make up your own ideas as to what to do. While some things might be obvious, you would never have the whole correct picture. Ignoring the maker’s instructions would open the way for errors, wrong settings, wrong use, lead to many possibly fatal problems, and would be treating your vehicle very unwisely and differently from the maker’s correct instructions, to obtain the intended very best use of it.
Likewise, as applying in our lives, principles, actions, and behaviour, which are not in keeping with the teaching and instructions of our Creator’s (Maker’s) instruction book, ‘The Bible,’ lead to great sadness, deception, lying, cheating, misunderstanding, relationship and family breakdowns, and dysfunctional relationships; with great damage to each one’s own integrity, character, and self-image, and health.
Everyone has freedom of choice, but if their choice contradicts the Creator’s ‘Instruction Book’ - the Bible - their trying to change it and to pursue their own direction is a futile and massive error which, for them, would lead to eventual destruction.
GOD loves absolutely everyone, however HE cannot love certain things they do if those things are a departure from HIS plans and purposes for human beings.
Certain behaviour is an abomination to GOD. HE cannot change HIS standards and principles, nor compromise in any way; HE is eternally consistent. Instructions which applied on day one, are the same forever.
GOD loves homosexual people, but HE cannot love same-sex, sexual relationships. Such relationships are anathema to HIM; they are forsaking HIS reasons, plans, design and purposes for HIS creation.
The words GOD uses are:
Abomination = a loathing;
Anathema = abhorrent, hateful, odious, repugnant, repellent, and offensive.
Sexuality is a gift, created and given by GOD especially and exclusively for husband and wife. In a marriage, respectful, loving, sexual desire is good; but outside of this, sexual addiction, lustful sex, loveless sex, disrespectful sex, and sex without proper relationship, are offensive to GOD.
This is all based on GOD’s love. HE knows what works and what blesses people.
GOD’s standards, principles, morals, and overall recipe for happiness and successful relationships are unchangeable; they are not subject to the changing winds of human opinions and trends.
When I think about, or am confronted by, people who live as though they are addicted to sex; I feel like saying to them: “Who or what is in charge of – controlling – dictating – and driving you? Are your out-of-control hormones switching off your brains? Respect yourself and your body. Lift yourself above animalism. Don’t take a beautiful GOD-designed thing out of its true and rightful context, and misuse it.”
Genesis 3:6-7 ‘When the woman (Eve) saw that the fruit of the tree (which GOD had forbidden them to eat of) was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it. She also gave some to her husband (Adam,) who was with her, and he ate it.
Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves.’
The key to their awakening was their becoming aware of guilt, shame, and embarrassment, which allowed sin in all of its variations to become part of their lives, bringing with it decay and death. Prior to this they were living, as GOD created them to be, in purity. They now became shut-off from the magnificent, unlimited dimensions of what GOD intended for them.
They destroyed their GOD-created purity by doing the one thing GOD had told them not to do. This one thing began the breakdown of GOD’s magnificent creation.
Sin had entered humanity, which led to GOD’s incredible rescue plan, through Jesus, in creating an open way for humans to be able to qualify - to be enabled - to choose to return to HIS kingdom of eternal life in absolute perfection.
Genesis 1:27 ‘So GOD created man in HIS own image, in the image of GOD HE created him; male and female HE created them.’
Genesis 2:24 ‘ For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh (meaning bonded together.)’
Leviticus 18:6-23 & 20:10-21 These Old Testament laws attracted the most severe punishment for offenders in those times.
Matthew 19:4-5 ‘Jesus said “Haven’t you read, that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”
Hebrews 13:4 ‘Marriage should be honoured by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for GOD will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.’
Marriage is between a man and a woman. How can two men together, or two women together, be a husband and a wife, a father and a mother; it is impossible.
Homosexuality is clearly condemned by GOD, and will exclude any person, who is practicing it, from entering heaven and GOD’s eternal kingdom.
Husband = man = father = male.
Wife = woman = mother = female.
Every child deserves, and has the right to have the love of a loving mother and a loving father; and every human being, intending to be a parent, has the duty and responsibility to provide this. Only a Father and Mother can provide the fine balance required in a healthy family unit.
GOD loves every human being on earth, but HE cannot love everything they do; and when their actions consciously reject HIS laws and standards, then they have condemned themselves to the automatic consequences, which permanently exclude them from ever entering GOD’s kingdom; unless they repent and fully change their life-style.
Many people might say “Leave GOD and religion out of this,” but how can any analysis or discussion of this subject, leave out the ONE who is the Designer and Creator of humanity and marriage.
People are entirely free to choose their own lifestyle. However GOD has pointed out the only standards acceptable to HIM, and the consequences of making other choices.
Just as parents have every right to make loving decisions with their children, GOD has absolute, irrevocable, non-negotiable right to state HIS ways; and humanity has zero rights to challenge or deny this.
Human-made laws and legislations can try to set different standards, and rules, and to even make GOD irrelevant to human life and relationships; but this will NEVER change GOD’s principles for humanity and HIS creation.
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 ‘Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear GOD and keep HIS commandments, for this is the whole duty of people (whole of mankind). For GOD will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil.’
Romans 12:1-2 ‘--- offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to GOD --- Do not conform any longer to the pattern (ways) of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.’
Romans 12:18 ‘If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.’
‘Same sex marriage.’
Same sex marriage is actually severely mocking GOD and His plan and purpose for creating man and woman. GOD knows what HIS purpose is, and HE knows best.
The original and continuing foundation of the family unit as the basis, for and of, human society, is the permanent unchangeable formula given by GOD - the Creator - Originator - Inventor - Designer - Developer - Manufacturer. GOD does not need to work with prototypes, HIS supreme intelligence is 100% perfection, therefore HE only works with perfection.
Hebrews 13:8 ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.’
It is clear that the Bible condemns homosexuality as immoral, unnatural, as sinful. This has been and will forever be GOD’s standard.
1 Corinthians 6:9-20 ‘Do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of GOD? Do not be deceived; neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who have sex with men, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor slanderers, nor swindlers, will inherit the Kingdom of GOD. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our GOD.
“I have the right to do anything,” you say; but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything; but I will not be mastered by anything. You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and GOD will destroy them both.”
‘The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body.’ By HIS power GOD raised the Lord from the dead, and HE will raise us also. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ Himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that whoever unites themselves with a prostitute is one with them in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” But whoever is united with the Lord is one with Him in spirit?
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you (committed Christians) not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from GOD? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour GOD with your bodies.’ (Otherwise you would be involving the Lord in sin, which He turns away from, so therefore your actions are rejecting Him.)
1 Corinthians 7:2–16 ‘But since there is so much immorality, each man should have his own wife, and each woman her own husband. The husband should fulfil his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. The wife’s body does not belong to her alone but also to her husband. In the same way the husband’s body does not belong to him alone but also to his wife.’
Proverbs 5:20-23 ‘Why, my son, be intoxicated with another man’s wife? Why embrace the bosom of a wayward woman?
‘For your ways are in full view of the LORD, and HE examines all your paths.’
‘The evil deeds of the wicked ensnare them; the cords of their sins hold them fast.’
‘For lack of discipline they will die, led astray by their own great folly.’
Since both homosexual desires and actions are condemned in the Bible, it is clear that homosexuals cannot marry - in GOD’s eyes - in the same way as a husband and wife do.
It is clearly against GOD’s design, plan, purpose, instruction, and will.
GOD loves everyone including homosexual people, however HE cannot and does not approve of their practice, it never was and never will be acceptable to GOD. HE designed humanity with unchangeably clear intention of purpose and morality. GOD never changes, and HIS standards never change, they remain the same forever.
What is right is right, what is wrong is wrong, time does not change it, nor does it ever vary in the slightest detail. It is absolute; it is not relative to cultural, sociological trends, changing ideas, or time.
Hebrews 13:8 ‘Jesus is the same yesterday and today and forever.’
Nothing changes; GOD’s laws, standards, and instructions, are absolute and unchangeable. They never change.
However the consequence of not turning away from sin is written in:
1 Corinthians 6:9-10. Galatians 5:19-21. Ephesians 5:5-7. Colossians 3:5-6.
Revelation 21:8 & 22:14-15.
‘All those who participate in, and who practice: fornication, homosexuality, idolatry, impurity, covetousness, cowardliness, unbelief, sorcery, anger, greed, malice, murder, lying, wickedness, sexually immorality, adultery, prostitution, theft, drunkenness, slander, swindling, debauchery, witchcraft, hate, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, factions, envy, orgies, magical arts; shall neither see nor inherit (enter) the Kingdom of Christ and of GOD; and upon all of these comes the wrath of GOD in the lake of fire and brimstone, the second death.’
This is GOD’s stipulation, not that of mankind (humankind). Humanity is free to make their own choices, right or wrong, to which there will be unavoidable consequences. GOD loves every person in the world, but HIS laws, which, if abused, broken, or ignored, ultimately have severe consequences.
Your parents, in exactly the same way allowed you to do some things but not others, with consequences for disobedience. They did this out of loving discipline and teaching.
GOD wants you to put on your ‘new self’ (sometimes referred to as ‘wash your robes,’) in the image of the Creator, in whose image and likeness we were created.
Because of peoples rebellious attitude and sinful behaviour and sexual disobedience, GOD gave them over to their own choices, which, in turn attract due penalties in themselves.
Romans 1:24-32 ‘Therefore GOD gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about GOD for a lie, and worshipped and served created things rather than the Creator – WHO is forever praised. Amen.
Because of this, GOD gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for un-natural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error of perversion.’
Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of GOD, so GOD gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed, and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, slanderers, GOD-haters, insolent, arrogant, and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. Although they know GOD’s righteous decree that most who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.’
This declares homosexual desires and actions to be shameful, unnatural, lustful, and indecent.
When people are completely and unchangeably set on their own direction of behaviour, GOD’s only option is to leave them addicted to what they refuse to change from.
Romans 12:18 ‘If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.’
2 Corinthians 6:17-18 “Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. Touch no unclean thing, and I will receive you.” “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord Almighty.”
Leviticus 18:22-23 & 20:13 ‘Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable. Do not have sexual relations with an animal.’
Verses 6-24 identify homosexual sex and other unsuitable sexual partnerships as an abomination and a detestable sin.
Hebrews 12:16-17 ‘See that no-one is sexually immoral, or is GOD-less like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest son. Afterward, as you know, when he wanted to inherit this blessing, he was rejected. Even though he sought the blessing with tears, he could not change what he had done.’
Whenever the Bible mentions marriage, it is between a male and a female. The first mention of marriage is in:
Genesis 2:24 ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.’
In passages that contain instructions regarding marriage, such as:
1 Corinthians 7:2-16 and Ephesians 5:23-33 the Bible clearly identifies marriage as being between a man and a woman. Biblically speaking, marriage is the lifetime union of a man and a woman, primarily for the purpose of building a family and providing a stable family environment, an accepted foundation of society and civilization.
Ephesians 5:21–33 ‘Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ. Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Saviour. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything.’ ‘Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave Himself up for her to make her holy, (Which means husbands should be prepared to die for their wives if necessary,) cleansing her by the washing with water through the word, and to present her to Himself as a radiant church (= Jesus’ bride), without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless. In the same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. In this same way, husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. After all, no one ever hated his own body, but he feeds and cares for it, just as Christ does the church; for we are members of His body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery; but I am talking about Christ and the church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.’
This is never to be misunderstood and used wrongly. Each is to love the other, and if the husband loves his wife correctly, his wife will want to respect him. He is never to apply this teaching wrongly by thinking he can control and demand his wife’s obedience to his wishes.
2 Peter 2.6-7 ‘He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah (which had become full of homosexuality and sexual immorality) by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the un-GOD-ly.’
Jude 4-7 ‘For certain individuals whose condemnation was written about long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are ungodly people, who pervert the grace of our GOD into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord. Though you already know all this, I want to remind you that the Lord at one time delivered His people out of Egypt, but later destroyed those who did not believe. And the angels who did not keep their positions of authority but abandoned their proper dwelling; these He has kept in darkness, bound with everlasting chains for judgement on the great Day. In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.’
‘Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed by fire because of sexual immorality. (Please see the last five paragraphs of this subject.)
The repeat of such a pattern – culture - will ultimately attract GOD’s severe intervention.
Galatians 6:7-8 ‘Do not be deceived: GOD cannot be mocked. A person reaps what they sow. The person who sows to please their sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the person who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.’
Ephesians 5:18 ‘Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit (GOD’s Holy Spirit).’
1 Thessalonians 4:3-8 ‘It is GOD’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honourable, not in passionate lust like the heathen, who do not know GOD; and that in this matter no one should wrong their brother / sister (meaning any man or woman) or take advantage of them. The Lord will punish them for all such sins, as we have already told you and warned you. For GOD did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, whoever rejects this instruction does not reject mankind but GOD, who gives you His Holy Spirit.’
GOD designed and approves of our experiencing sexual blissful pleasure, but only within a committed for life marriage.
Every person who is involved in any of these shall neither see nor inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of GOD; and upon all of these people comes the wrath of GOD in the lake of fire and brimstone, the second death, which is eternally permanent non-existence, as if you had never existed at all.
Revelation 22:14-15 ‘Blessed are those who wash their robes, (means to put your faith in Jesus Christ) that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. Outside are the dogs, (= the outsiders) those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.’
(The city is ‘The New Jerusalem’ = Heaven.)
The reason that people are becoming complacently conditioned into acceptance of homosexuality; apart from the evil, carefully planned, subtle, multi-faceted, long term sneaky conditioning process; is that the true point of reference is being ignored, by leaving out GOD’s instruction to His creation; which represents absolute truth, and therefore the absolute point of reference. If we try to create our own standards which can only be based on our own opinions, desires and compromises, which only represent individual relative truth, then there is no absolute point of reference. If we ignore GOD and make Him and His standards irrelevant, or even reject His existence altogether, we can then expect to suffer the consequences, which are chaos and suffering in many ways; and by our own free choices we therefore exclude ourselves from entry to GOD’s eternal kingdom.
Everyone has freedom to choose, but they need to understand that every choice has a consequence.
It is no wonder that Satan and the demonic powers attack the purity of sexuality, for it is our sexuality expressed together in male and female that reveals the image of GOD. His image shines in glory, is revealed, propagated and completed within the procreative powers of male and female together. It is here that we find the true beauty of the divine plan shining through in the fact of sexual reproduction pointing to a Creator.
Same sex marriage is actually severely mocking GOD and His plan and purpose for creating man and woman.
GOD loves every human being on earth, but HE cannot love everything they do; and when their actions consciously reject His laws and standards, then they have condemned themselves to the automatic consequences, which permanently exclude them from ever entering GOD’s kingdom; unless they repent and fully change their life-style.
Many people might say “Leave GOD and religion out of this”; but how can any analysis or discussion of this subject, leave out the ONE who is the Designer and Creator of humanity, sex, and marriage.
There have even intentions by certain groups to have the Bible declared as a book of ‘hate speech,’ or to even change the Bible’s wording to suit their requirements. This would be complete distortion, defilement, and destruction of The CREATOR’s planned and irrevocable intentions and laws as to how HIS creation is to function, as outlined in GOD’s Instruction Book – The BIBLE. Changing it does not change the original unchangeable intention and instructions. GOD is GOD.
If people choose to hate the Bible, it is their freedom of choice to do so, even though such a decision will have eventual consequences for them.
Proverbs 7:24-27 ‘Now then my sons, listen to me; pay attention to what I say. Do not let your heart turn to her (the adulteress’) ways or stray into her paths. Many are the victims she has brought down; her slain are a mighty throng. Her house is a highway to the grave, leading down to the chambers of death.’
Isaiah 5:20-21 ‘Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.’
Matthew 15:19-20a ‘Out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony, slander. These are what makes a person unclean.’
Mark 7:20-23 Jesus said “What comes out of a person is what makes them ‘unclean.’ For from within, out of people’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malicious deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance, and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a person unclean.”
Galatians 5:16-21 ‘So I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh. For the flesh desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the flesh. They are in conflict with each other, so that you are not to do whatever you want. But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. The acts of the flesh are obvious, sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, and envy; drunkenness, orgies and the like. I warn you as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of GOD.’
Colossians 3:5-6 ‘Put to death, therefore, whatever belongs to your earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of GOD is coming.’
James 4:4 ‘You adulterous people, don’t you know that friendship with the world is hatred toward GOD? Anyone who chooses to be a friend of the world becomes an enemy of GOD.’
‘Friendship with the world,’ means living in worldly ways; which are not GOD’s ways.
One could ask people who say they cannot do without sex: “Who is in control of you, is it your brains, your wisdom, and your own will power, or your uncontrolled hormones?”
Marriage between a man and a woman is the only GOD-ly reason for regular sexual involvement = committed purposeful sex, not addicted sex.
Dr. Armand Nicholi Jr. a clinical professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, in Boston, USA. describes a 1960s study: Not long after the sexual revolution started, clinicians observed that the new sexual freedom was creating a psychological disaster; a study of Harvard students who complained of emptiness and despondency. There was a gap between their social conscience and their personal morality. The new sexual permissiveness was leading to empty relationships and feelings of self-contempt. Many were pre-occupied with the passing of time and death. They yearned for meaning and moral framework.
If you - as GOD did - created or started something which went wrong, you would want to step in and remedy the situation by bringing it back to its original state in keeping with your original vision, plans, purpose, and reason for creating it. We cannot improve on GOD’s original creation, we cannot make it any better. So in thinking that we can improve on it, and attempting to do so, is thoroughly futile.
GOD creates everything to one hundred percent perfection; HE operates only in and with perfection.
Sexual sin has been a problem through the ages - unfortunately.
Numbers 25:1-3 ‘While Israel was staying in Shittim, the men began to indulge in sexual immorality with the Moabite women, who invited them to the sacrifice to their gods. The people ate the sacrificial meal and bowed down before these gods. So Israel yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor. And the LORD’s anger burned against them.’
Everyone has sexual freedom of choice. GOD is just telling people that there are consequences; and no human laws, protests, or radical opposition will have any effect whatsoever in preventing the eventual immovable consequences from the ultimate outcome. GOD’s standards and laws are absolute, and stand forever.
If people insist on creating their own sinful standards, just as the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah did, the consequences are inevitable. Those towns near the Dead Sea were totally destroyed by fire in the form of burning sulphur which GOD rained down on them. Death was almost instantaneous, as burning sulphur asphyxiates within a few seconds.
I have walked over the now barren ground and have seen the sulphur balls, the burning of which was suffocated within what has become a hard ash shell.
Luke 17:28-30 ‘It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulphur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.’
There comes a time when GOD puts a stop to wrong and rebellious behaviour.
It is futile for anyone to think they can change this by opposing it in any way whatsoever.
