In the last four years, I’ve written nearly 10 blog posts on the evils of homosexuality and gay marriage. Click here to read them. I’ve reblogged hundreds of links, photos, and videos on Facebook and Twitter too. Yet people still don’t get it. I myself didn’t understand the horror of these sins until I saw the family and church unit (lesson 7) of Focus on the Family’s The Truth Project, led by Dr. Del Tackett. It’s called “Outline for Sociology: The Divine Imprint.” Watch the video on Vimeo.
God’s Holy Designs
1. God is a triune being – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
2. God created a natural marriage and family – husband / father, wife / mother, and children.
So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, ‘Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it.” (Genesis 1:27-28)
The LORD God said, “It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.” … And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: “This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.” Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh. (Genesis 2:18, 21-24)
Now Adam knew Eve his wife, and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, “I have acquired a man from the LORD.” Then she bore again, this time his brother Abel. … And Adam knew his wife again, and she bore a son and named him Seth, “For God has appointed another seed for me instead of Abel, whom Cain killed.” (Genesis 4:1-2, 25)
3. God created a spiritual marriage and family – Jesus Christ (husband/father), mature Christians in the church (wife/mother), and new converts (children).
For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel. (1 Corinthians 4:15)
For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. … For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones. “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. (Ephesians 5:23-24, 30-32
My little children, of whom I travail in birth again until Christ be formed in you. (Galatians 4:19)
I beseech thee for my son Onesimus, whom I have begotten in my bonds. (Philemon 10)
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. (1 Peter 1:23)
God is a God of order – not disorder, chaos, and confusion (1 Corinthians 14:40).
God’s Holy Purposes
Natural foreshadows spiritual (1 Corinthians 15:46). God created the natural, earthly family as a type and precursor to the spiritual, eternal one. God also led the virgin Mary to conceive and give birth to Jesus through the Holy Spirit as a type and precursor to our earthly relationship with Christ. As virgins engaged to Him we conceive and give birth to converts through the Holy Spirit. Think of Hannah and Paul travailing in prayer. [This is a paradox.] The main purpose in both relationships is “godly seed,” or offspring (Malachi 2:15). Read my blog post “40 Years of Roe v. Wade: The Natural Right to Life” to learn more.
The analogies of family and church aren’t perfect. Still, they are God’s self-reflection of his nature and holiness. He intended the family and the church to think, feel, say, and act as one – just as the triune God does. The holy Trinity, marriage/family, and church are not mathematical units but organic ones. When we redefine them in our image as our evil natures incline, we do violence to God’s nature and holiness. [The same is true with “transgendered” people.]
Many people argue that domestic violence, child abuse, incest, divorce, and polygamy go against God’s design for the family and they’re right. [I left out remarriage. People can remarry for valid reasons, including the death of or legal abandonment by a spouse. A good example is Ruth.] However abhorrent, these are natural sins. God tolerated polygamy in some of his Old Testament saints. A few committed incest (Abraham and Sarah, Judah and Tamar, Amram and Jochebed – parents of Moses). However, God is judge of their hearts and deeds, not me.
Unlike the sins above, homosexuality and gay marriage are unnatural – as are pedophilia and bestiality. Such activity is wholly demonic. God calls them “abomination” and “confusion,” gross sins not only worthy of death (capital punishment, which is not murder) but also vile enough to make the land spew us out (Leviticus 18:24-28, 20:22-23). Read the verses below. People ignore them to their peril.
You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (Leviticus 18:22)
If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (Leviticus 20:13)
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. (Romans 1:26-27)
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-11)
There is hope – but only for those who repent of sin and surrender to God so he can change them.
Jesus and Homosexuals
And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder. (Matthew 19:4-6)
Not only that, when the Bible says “let us make man in our image” (Genesis 1:26) it means Jesus was there when God created Adam and Eve and when Eve gave birth to Cain. Jesus knows what marriage and the family should look like. He designed them and was present when they came into being.
However, some people who claim Jesus as Savior and Lord continue in unbelief or ignorance. They have exchanged the truth of God for a lie. Unless they repent and are converted, Jesus will tell them, “I never knew you. Depart from me” (Matthew 7:23, Luke 13:27). Their eternal destiny will be hell.
“The Purpose of a Man is to Love a Woman…”
[WARNING: Some of the material below is NOT recommended for readers under 13.]
God designed our bodies as male and female, with corresponding sexual equipment. A person claiming to be a different gender from birth – i.e. a woman in a man’s body – does not need surgery. Rather he or she is possessed by a demon and needs spiritual deliverance.
God designed us with sexual equipment so we could reproduce, i.e. create children. It’s all about the next generation, not us. We’re different but complementary. When we come together in sexual union, we fit one another like a hand to a glove. The penis enters the vagina and releases semen full of sperm. This sperm travels to an egg. One enters in to be swallowed up. Then the miracle of conception occurs. Nine months later, a baby is born – a perfect, fully formed human being. God made this system and he rejoices in it.
God designed the penis to fit the vagina and nowhere else. It is the only right, proper, and natural place of entrance for sex. All others (mouth, anus) are unnatural and therefore an abomination. [Likewise, the mouth should not be used on any other sexual organ than another mouth.] Some gays claim the anus as a God-designed place of entrance, supposedly because it has a sexual organ. What they call such an organ is not for sex. Rather, it is the body telling the brain that he or she needs to release non-urine waste. Those gays who know that the anus is not designed for sex and don’t care are sinning openly.
Some people (gay and straight) believe that the reproductive argument is flawed, since some male/female couples cannot have children due to sterility or surgery. Others point to adultery, spousal/child abuse, and divorce as symptoms of a broken marriage system. However, their arguments are themselves flawed. Just because a machine designed to make nails breaks down doesn’t mean this machine can have another purpose or that another machine, designed to cut wood, should take its place. This doesn’t work in science and technology, so why biology? Just fix the machine, through prayer!
Love, or Lust?
Homosexuals say they love each other, but they don’t. What they call “love” is a demonic perversion. It’s not agape (sacrifice), phileo (friendship), or even eros (romance). Rather, their “love” is selfish lust. They don’t love the next generation, just themselves. In these last days, people will be “lovers of themselves” (2 Timothy 3:2). True love begins with sacrifice, a spiritual death to self. Of this, they know nothing.
Here’s the real problem. Many gays don’t want to marry. Instead, they want to destroy the divine institution of marriage altogether and corrupt innocent children in the process. I pray God hangs a millstone around their necks and drowns them in the depths of the sea (Matthew 18:6-7, Mark 9:42, Luke 17:1-2). Read the stories below to learn the latest news.

God is love and the author of it (1 John 4:7-8). He brings men and women together in holy matrimony.
God is also the author of life. His system of male and female produces life – babies. The world’s system of male and male, or female and female, produces death – diseases like AIDS. Such an ungodly and perverted system cannot produce anything else. God asks us to choose “life or death, blessing or cursing” (Deuteronomy 30:19). If we want to see the face of God in heaven for all eternity, we must choose life. Otherwise, our destiny is eternal death in hell.
