“…you shall love your neighbor as yourself: I am the Lord.”
These words were spoken by God to Moses to relay to Israel, hundreds of years before Jesus reiterated them. And in the same ‘breath’, the Lord told Moses, “If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.”
I point this out because many unbelievers and even ignorant professing ‘believers’ – who could care less about all the other things Jesus commanded – have attempted to rip Jesus’ words from the overall context of the Bible and twist them to push their homosexual agenda. They tell us that these words of Jesus require us to accept homosexuality as normal and an expression of “love”.
Yet, Jesus merely reiterated the Law. And in the Law, ‘loving one another’ and forbidding the practice of homosexuality co-existed. IN THE SAME ‘BREATH’ God told Moses to love one another and punish practicing homosexuals. If homosexuality is ‘love’, why would God threaten such “love” with a death penalty right after commanding Israel to “love one another”?
How can that be? Is God schizophrenic?
Not at all. The answer is simple.
Love is defined by God and in its most simplest form, to truly LOVE someone is to live out God’s law towards that person. True love does not commit adultery, lie, covet, steal, and so on. True love is NOT a man having sex with another man.
“Love” is not left up to each and every individual to decide what it means, based on their fickle, inconsistent, and ever-changing emotions. If it were, then you have absolutely NO GROUNDS whatsoever to combat other perversions such as bestiality, pedophilia, and so on.
Love is rooted in God and His Law. It is not rooted in your personal tastes, opinions, and emotions.
Homosexuality is not love. It is hate. It is a hatred of God, hatred of self, and hatred of others. And the more it is normalized in this country, the more that hate will manifest itself, eventually involving the persecution and suffering of those who stand for true love.
