“Doesn’t even Nature itself teach you, that … it is a shame?” (1 Corinthians 11:14).
Everything in nature, from the birds and the bees to the flowers and the trees, even pine cones and thistles, have gender. What is the purpose of gender? Reproduction. When Jesus said, “In the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels in heaven” (Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25), He was not saying that human beings become angels when they die. (Human beings never turn into angels.) He was saying that they become neutered (genderless) because reproduction is no longer needed.
Even the plumbing in your house has male and female coupling. Did you know that? Male pipes cannot connect without female elbows.
Homosexuality is contrary to nature. The Bible says, “God gave them up” (KJV)—who? reprobates, unbelievers, people who rejected the Truth—“God delivered them over in the cravings of their hearts to sexual impurity, so that their bodies were degraded among themselves. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie …. God delivered them over to degrading passions. For even their females exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. The males in the same way also left natural relations with females and were inflamed in their lust for one another” (Romans 1:24-27 HCSB).
If male-to-male attraction, or female-to-female, is genetically normal, why must one of the pair dramatically alter his, or her, speech and walk to imitate the woman, or man, neither wants?
If homosexuality is “natural,” why are homosexuals divided into machos and femmes? That they are so designated illustrates heterosexuality not homosexuality.
In the recent past, the talk on this once-taboo subject has been so perverted by a successful media-driven propaganda campaign that, today, about 40 percent of American youth don’t see homosexuality as a vice or a moral issue. Some young people are even questioning whether they are “gay” or “straight,” showing that they perceive one or the other as a choice and “gay” as chic. Some Europeans are even trying to “rectify” the ban against homosexual blood in the blood bank.
Where are our churches on this issue? After all the money they’ve raked in, and all their proud affluence, one would think they could be more vocal on matters that are clearly biblical. Who cares about their bodacious brick buildings and their selfie speakers if they cannot do what they were created to do?
I was in Washington, DC, one summer day, moving slowly down N Capitol, when I saw a big pooch hanging his head out a car window, panting for air. I thought to myself, He’s praising God. Why? Because he was doing what he was born to do: he was being a dog. Not even our preachers are that sanctified! They were born to serve the Lord. And look what they’ve done with that opportunity!
It is a sad state of affairs in “the land of the free” and “the home of the brave” when “that august body,” the US Supreme Court, is asked to decide matters that Nature itself teaches, that were instituted by God, and are still within His purview. If a tornado, hurricane, or earthquake destroys a town, what does the property insurance call it? An act of God. God still acts.
It may turn out to be a sad state of affairs that the US Supreme Court even took the case on “gay marriage.” Agreeing to hear Obergefell v Hodges was more than they did in the cruel death of Terri Schiavo, who was ordered, by a state court, to thirst to death.—Imagine that in this country a human being can be ordered to thirst to death! Is this the reason we are now experiencing drought?—You won’t find the case of Terri Schiavo in the annuls of the US Supreme Court because Justice Anthony Kennedy refused to help the girl. Governor Jeb Bush, like Pontius Pilate, at the last, said her case was out of his hands. But, then, if you can do away with God, as the Communists and atheists want—and so far have succeeded in accomplishing in religious matters like prayer in school, abortion, and “euthanasia”—then nothing is forbidden.
“Без бога всё позволено [Without God, everything is permitted]” ~Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Brothers Karamazov (1880)
Don’t think that these cases of abortion, homosexuality, and “euthanasia” are theoretical issues or isolated incidents. If a court can execute an innocent Terri Schiavo, a noncriminal, who was minding her own business and hurting no one, it can execute you too. If a court can order a business to service anyone, even against his religious convictions, it can boss you too. You can either fear or fight, but don’t think you can avoid. “Euthanasia” isn’t such a “good death” when you’re the victim. Homosexuality isn’t such a good “choice” when society is turned on its head and anything goes.
“There is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright.” ~Henry David Thoreau
“Never does Nature say one thing and Wisdom another.” ~Juvenal
