Homosexuality: God’s view and His remedy


17-September-2011

Leviticus 18:22 says: “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination”

Yet the world is teeming with homosexuals; some churches even conduct marriages for homosexuals!  They are fighting for the right to be regarded as a nuclear family.  They are everywhere: on the streets, and even in the places and positions least expected.

Someone testified of this Christian person, who had been ensnared by the spirit of homosexuality, and who required help to break the habit.  The person had suffered in secret for many years and now needed deliverance.

In institutions of learning, social and entertainment places, youngsters are drawn into homosexual practices by cruel seniors, and their own lust.  But for whatever reason, homosexuality is of the devil.  Romans 1:26-27 reads:

Because they do this, God has given them over to shameful passions, Even the woman pervert the natural use of their sex by unnatural acts.

In the same way the men give up natural sexual relations with women and burn with passion for each other.  Men do shameful things with each other, and as a result they bring upon themselves the punishment they deserve for their wrongdoing.   (Good News Bible)

 

Origin of Homosexual

Where did the problem emanate?  From the fall of Man.  After man fell and handed the government of the world over to the devil, the devil tried to pervert every good and perfect thing God had made.

God created a means of procreation between the man and his wife.  After the fall, man wondered what it will feel like to mate with animals and with people of like sex.  What God created to be enjoyed between the man and his wife became marred.  Man began to seek other women outside marriage; he began to crave for intercourse with other men.

Unregenerated man keeps searching for new ways of living in “excitement”.  Because homosexuality is a spirit, they become chained to it and are unable to escape.  But when a man becomes born-again, something happens: sin has no longer dominion over him.  He is free to walk away, and as a matter of fact is advised to flee from every appearance of evil.

For sin shall not have dominion over you: for you are not under the law, but under grace.   Romans 6:14 

 

Remedy to homosexuality

For anyone caught up in the web of homosexuality there is hope for you, it is still possible to walk free by applying the following steps:

A.      Become Born-Again

Only Jesus Christ has the remedy.  When Jesus died on the cross, He paid the price for all sins, once and for all Romans 6:6.  God loves you, and wants to deliver you from every trap of the devil.  Homosexuality is a trap and its only recompense or reward is AIDS.  Do not toy with it, come to Jesus today and He will free you from its hold.

Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that we should no longer serve sin.  Romans 6:6 

As parents, our children must be brought up in the fear of the Lord.  Teenagers need to be occupied doing positive things, to create an outlet for inherent drives.  We must teach our children to say a resounding No! to pressures by peers to experiment with their bodies and “discover” sensitive areas.  Only Christ has the remedy. 

B.      Receive A New Mind

After giving one’s life to Christ, if the individual has had previous homosexual experience, another battle has to be fought and won.  This battle rages on in the mind.  Romans 1:28 documents God’s punishment for those caught in the grip of this evil, and it affects their minds.

Because these people refused to keep in mind the true knowledge about God, he has given them over to corrupted minds, so that they do the things that they should not do.  (Good news Bible)

The penalty of dabbling into homosexuality is a corrupted or reprobate mind.  The following steps can help to free your mind from its past experiences.

1.      Believe

Believe that now you are in Christ, old things have indeed passed away.  Believe that God has forgiven you and therefore forgive yourself! 

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creation: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17 

2.      Read

Read the Bible and spend time meditating on God’s Word.  Memorise scriptures, and let them be a part of you. 

Your word have I hid in my heart, that I might not sin against you.  Psalms 119:11 

3.      Pray

There is no situation that prayer cannot change.  Continue to ‘wash’ your thoughts on your knees.  For effectual prayer, you need the Holy Spirit.  Receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. 

Likewise the Spirit also helps our weakness: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought but the Spirit himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  Romans 8:26 

4.      Fast

Set time aside to wait upon the Lord in a fast and consolidate your freedom, as well as renewing your strength.

Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?  Isaiah 58:6 

5.      Make Christian friends

Make Christian friends and spend time with them, discussing edifying things.  Do not engage in idle talk. 

He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.  Proverbs 13:20 

6.      Attend a Bible Believing Church

Attend a Bible Believing Church where the mind of God is made known in unequivocal terms.

And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.  Isaiah 2:3 

7.      Keep away junks

Wrong literature is the gateway to wrong thinking and wrong living. Keep away from dirty novels (as long as Christ is not glorified, it is deadly) which propagate inordinate sexual acts.  Keep yourself busy in the kingdom and discipline yourself.  No one can reach your thoughts; so you, by yourself, must consciously guard your heart with all diligence.  Philippians 4:8 has an all-purpose drug.  It reads:

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.  Philippians 4:8 

If the steps discussed above are followed, you will receive total freedom from this deadly disease of homosexuality.
