What’s Wrong with Homosexuality?

An article is circulating on the internet that attacks Dr. Laura for condemning homosexuality and mocks many passages from the Old Testament. It's interesting and very well reasoned, however, remember, Dr Laura is Jewish. For Christians, the New Testament is our norm. So let’s find out how this all affects Christians.

 First, if we’re to understand the law in the Old Testament, we need to consider a passage in Ezekiel 20 that says that God gave us laws that were good, that would help us, but we ignored them. It's referring to the Ten Commandments. It then says He gave us laws that were not good. We learn in the New Testament (NT) that the law was a tutor, to lead us to Christ. There were so many laws, it was impossible for anyone to perfectly keep them, and that was the point. This was to train us in our need for salvation.

 In the NT, homosexuality is included in a catalog of biblical absolutes totaling about 39 sins. These are mentioned in a couple of places like I Corinthians 6 and include obvious sins of the flesh like murder, adultery and drunkenness, as well as what I consider to be sins of the spirit, like gossip, backbiting, envy, heresies and dissensions. We are told that anyone who practices these sins -- not just commits them but regularly practices them -- will not inherit God's Kingdom. (Cf. Galatians 5 which contrasts the works of the flesh with the wonderful fruits of the Spirit like love, joy, gentleness, self-control and peace. It also underscores the clear teaching of the whole Bible that all the law is summed up in the commands to love.)

 Interestingly, in most of these NT passages, there is no mention of hell. A notable exception to this is found in Revelations 21:8. It warns of a fiery doom called the second death for the sexually immoral and abominable, as well as for liars, the unbelieving and fearful people.

 Those who continue to violate moral absolutes without repentance cannot inherit God's Kingdom. His Kingdom clearly has both a temporal and an eternal dimension. It is "righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit." It is also to come "on earth, as it is in Heaven."

 A person can't go left and right at the same time without being torn apart. We can't feed our flesh without starving the spirit. If we pursue illicit sensual pleasures, we do so at the risk of sacrificing our spiritual fulfillment. Licentious lust causes guilt and destroys our inner peace. But lust is morally neutral. Lust in heterosexual marriage enhances love. Guilt shouldn’t factor in.

 The point is this. Homosexuality, as with other powerful immoral enticements, is ultimately self-destructive. The life expectancy of homosexuals is shortened by almost 30 years. The average homosexual in America only lives to be 45. Disease, suicide, drug and alcohol addiction take a terrible toll on the ‘gay’ lifestyle. God doesn’t hate homosexuals, he hates the sins that harm and destroy them. He similarly hates adultery, drunkenness and sorcery. These things make it impossible to experience the love, peace and joy that characterize Kingdom behavior.

 Christians let the New Testament set our boundaries for us. It shows us which laws are good and protect us from unnecessary harm. It also keeps us from becoming so broadminded we can no longer get through the narrow gate. The much vaunted tolerance that our permissive society idolizes isn’t found in the Bible. The word doesn’t appear even once in the entire Bible. It’s merely an excuse for doing whatever we want to do. It’s not new morality, it’s simply the old immorality dressed up and given verbal makeup to look better and make ti more seductive. It thrusts billions of people onto the broad road the leads to destruction. God wants better for His children. His narrow road leads to peace, love, joy, life, health and well-being. And the retirement benefits aint bad either.
