The article stated:
“Let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me,” Mr. Cook wrote in the essay, published by Bloomberg Businessweek.
It was good for him until he said that. I do not understand why homosexuals are so determined to put God in their mess. I do not understand why they have to validate being homosexual with God. It is the same thing with same-sex marriage. If you want to be a homosexual so be it, but leave God out of it.
I also do not understand why someone proclaiming they are homosexual is even news anymore. It is so commonplace anymore. To me who is not homosexual would be more news. That made me think about this Except from, “In Search Of My Soul Mate:”
My faith have really be challenged the last couple of weeks. The new person they just hired is homosexual. He has lived in the complex for a while so I know him very well. He is very open about it.
We have been having some intellectual conversation about religion and homosexuality. One thing I have gotten from our conversations is I never understood why some of the homosexuals come up against Christianity so hard. I know now it is because Christianity is the only thing that makes them wrong.
I told him my stand on homosexuality is it is a lifestyle you have chosen. His stand is he was made that way. I told him since he was made that way that must be what he has to overcome. I told him Jesus had a cross and we have a cross also and we must overcome our cross.
He totally agreed with we all have a cross to bear, but he was adamant that his homosexuality was not his cross. Another day he told me he had told someone about our cross conversation. That showed me he had been thinking about it.
All we need to do is plant seeds. God does the rest of the work. We don’t have to save the world. Jesus did that when He died on the cross. All God wants us to be is the light in this world. My life lined up to, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:15).
YOU CAN OVERCOME YOUR HOMOSEXUALITY THROUGH JESUS CHRIST.
“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)
Later we had another talk, but this one wasn’t as friendly. His voice rose and he got angry. I was surprised. I asked him why was he angry about my position because it has always been the same. Then I said, “Did you think you were going to change my mind?” He admitted he did.
I never tried to change his mind. I never even said he was wrong so why is he trying to cram it down my throat. When you have the truth you don’t have to cram it down people’s throats. The truth always comes to the light.
What irks me is just be real about what you are doing. Take responsibility for your actions. If you are a man and you like men just say you like men and be done with it. Don’t put a homosexual label on it to justify it and don’t put God’s Name to it either.
Most of the things people get caught up into like homosexuality, drug abuse, alcoholism, just to name a few come from experimenting. Experimenting is so dangerous. It opens the door for satan. Once satan gets his foot in the door he is going to do everything in his power to break that door down to destroy us.
The heart is so desperately wicked. That is where God’s grace comes in. If we would be real for a moment haven’t you been so angry you have said, “I could kill that person?”
I have! Anyone of us is capable of anything. That is why we can’t judge another person. The Holy Spirit led me to this Scripture:
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” Jeremiah 17:9)
GOD’S GRACE IS THE ONLY THINGS THAT SAVES US FROM OURSELVES.
“For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:” (Ephesians 2:8)
“That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” (Titus 3:7)
Then the Holy Spirit said something that surprised me. He said, “Actually he was born that way. He was born a homosexual just like he was born a murderer, a fornicator, a liar, an adulterer, and a child molester, just to name a few. Homosexuality is just the sin he has chosen.” He led me to this Scripture:
“Behold, I was shapen in iniquity, and in sin did my mother conceive me.” (Psalm 51:5)
Sin came into the world when Adam ate the apple. Eve was wrong when she gave the apple to him. Because Adam is the head he was more wrong because he ate it. There was no sin prior to that.
All of us are from Adam. That’s why there should be no racism. Now sin is in all mankind, which is women too because we are from the man. The Holy Spirit led me to this Scripture:
“Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:” (Romans 5:12)
THAT IS WHY WE MUST BE BORN AGAIN.
PUTTING GOD IN HOMOSEXUALITY ONLY BRINGS MORE CONDEMNATION.
