What Does God Say About Homosexual Acts?

I am writing from the Old Testament book of Leviticus, chapter 18.

I want to be clear, I am not trying to pick on any particular group of people, and since Leviticus 18 does not start with homosexual acts, I will not start there either.

The chapter begins with God’s proclamation, “I Am The LORD”, and the warning not to walk  in the ordinances of Egypt, from which He brought Israel out or of Canaan, the land to which He was leading them, but rather to walk in His statutes and to follow His judgments.

So, what are His statutes?  Well, for starters, we are not to uncover the nakedness of another person, if you want the complete list you can read verses 6-18.  But rather than looking for loopholes, I would say that the safest course is to just not do it!

Next, God warns against lying carnally with your neighbor’s wife.  This would include the sins both of fornication and adultery.  These are sins, and the one who take part in them defiles himself with them.

God also warns against sacrificing children to Molech, a truly horrid practice whereby a child was placed into the hands of a metal idol that was heated to the point where it was glowingGods-hand-of-judgment hot.

And then God says:

 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. (Leviticus 18:22, 23)

And the people are warned that not only do they defile themselves by such acts (Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. Leviticus 18:24) but the land itself is also defiled, therefore the LORD visits the punishment for their iniquity and the land vomits out its inhabitants.  

Therefore you shall keep My ordinance, so that you do not commit any of these abominable customs which were committed before you, and that you do not defile yourselves by them: I am the Lord your God. (Leviticus 18:30)

My Friends, I Bring You Wonderful News!

I searched for the proper adjective to use in my title and settled for “wonderful”.  I say settled because there really is no word to describe the greatness, the wonder, the awesomeness of what I am about to share.

So, what is this good news?  I will let Paul the Apostle share it first.  Paul said:

For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,  and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures,  and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.  After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep.  After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles.  Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.  1 Corinthians 15:3-8

To condense what Paul said, Jesus Christ died as a sacrifice for our sins, and then rose from the dead so that we might enjoy eternal life with God.

To put it another way, the Bible teaches that we are all sinners.  We have all fallen short of God’s expectation, which is sinless perfection.  (Romans 3:23)  Therefore, the Holy Spirit of God does not dwell in us, and as a result, we are dead, spiritually, and upon our physical death, we will be eternally separated from God.

Remember, this is not God’s plan for us, we, all of us have sinned willfully and brought about our own spiritual deaths.  It is not God who caused our separation from Him.  We did this to ourselves.

That’s the bad news.  The good news we have already heard from the Apostle Paul.  God is not willing that any should perish (2 Peter 3:9) but that all should come to repentance.  Therefore, He sent His Son, Jesus, to take te punishment for our sins on our behalf.  This is called propitiation.  A favorite saying of mine is, “Jesus paid a debt He did not owe, for us who owed a debt we could not pay”.  The just died for the unjust, in order that the unjust should be justified before God.

But that is only part of the good news.  Once Jesus’ sacrifice on our behalf was accepted by God, Jesus rose from the dead, victorious, not only over sin, but over death itself!  As a result of Jesus’ sacrifice, His righteousness is imputed to us.  And, as a result of Jesus being raised from the dead, His Life is imputed to us as well.

This gift of eternal life is given freely to any who will believe in Jesus.  So, what exactly does that mean, “believe in Jesus”?

First, we must acknowledge before God that we are a sinner.  Second, we must acknowledge that Jesus died for our sins.  Third, we must ask God for the salvation that He has provided through His Son, Jesus Christ.  And last, we must trust in Jesus alone for our salvation.  His sacrifice was sufficient.  There is nothing else that we must do to obtain, or to maintain our salvation, only trust in Him for what He has already accomplished on our behalf.
