Contrasting kisses

This past week the world seemed to rejoice as two females kissed each other in the traditional “first kiss” as one sailor chosen by raffle is selected to greet and kiss a loved one first upon arriving in port. It would seem that our President, his administration and the armed services would have us believe that the embrace of these two females is the moral equivalent of the long famous sailor and nurse kiss which took place on V-J Day in 1945.

If you doubt there was anything intentional here, the media and those in the LGBT community are touting this as “The kiss heard round the world”. World, here is the message: America is shedding the shackles of its Christian, moral foundings and we have finally seen the light. We have made a discovery (what it is, I don’t know) that proves that all our former laws against sodomy were wrong. Not only this, but we are correcting virtually every nation before us in every age that condemned this behavior. They have all been wrong for thousands of years and America under the Obama administration is setting humanity right.

President Obama is determined to have sodomy acknowledged as the moral equivalent of the God ordained male-female relationship. We recently learned that the Obama administration will use U.S foreign aid as leverage against countries that outlaw homosexual behavior. If you take a moral stand against this behavior forbidden by God, that condemns itself with disease and death and would lead to extinction if we all embraced it, the U.S. government will not give you financial aid. Truly we are governed by sons of darkness.

The world holds two photos before us, a man and woman on the left and two women on the right and insists that they are moral equivalents but are they? Let’s see…

One of these couples can make a claim to having been present in the original creation of God which is it? The couple on the left. The man and woman have a Biblical precedent for their behavior for the Scriptures tell us that when God created mankind he did so by making a man and a woman…

Genesis 1:27 “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.”

Genesis 2:21-22 “And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place.  Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.”

The Bible has pronounced a blessing upon one of these couples is it the couple on the left or the right? It is the couple on the left:

Genesis 1:27-28 “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”

God pronounced His blessing on the man and the woman. One could rightly ask how the couple on the right could fulfill the command of God to be fruitful and multiply? Can the couple on the right multiply?

The Bible tells us that the behavior of one of these couples is “against nature” is it the couple on the left or right? It is the couple on the right.

Romans 1:26 “For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.”

The Bible never speaks of a man kissing a woman as “against nature” neither does it call it “vile” but it does say this about a woman kissing a woman.

One of these relationships can be seen in heaven is it the relationship on the left or the right? It is the relationship on the left.

Revelation 19:7 “Let us be glad and rejoice and give Him glory, for the marriage of the Lamb has come, and His wife has made herself ready.”

Jesus is the Lamb and the Church is His bride. Yes, in heaven the God ordained male-female relationship will be exalted for all eternity. Can the same be said of the couple on the right? Will the same sex relationship be exalted in heaven? No, for the Bible sternly warns us that it will not be found in heaven at all:

1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.”

Sex between one of these couples leads to the propagation of the human race, is it the couple on the left or right? Yes, when the couple on the left have sex, children are born. When the couple on the right have sex mankind is not benefited, only themselves.

Sex between one of these couples is naturally safe is it the couple on the left or the right? It is the couple on the left.

Romans 1:26-27 “For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,  27 and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.”

When a man and a woman commit themselves to one another exclusively as God has commanded there is nothing unsafe about it. Does anyone ever ask why homosexual behavior has to be practiced safely? If it is good and blessed by God why isn’t it safe naturally? On the contrary, the Bible tells us that God has attached grave consequences to homosexual behavior that manifests itself in our bodies.

Now at this point I am sure you will be careful not to be hateful or bigoted toward me. We are told that condemning homosexuality and calling it wrong is hateful and bigoted so if I understand the equation, condemning something and calling it wrong is hateful and bigoted. So I can only assume that condemning my views and calling them wrong is also hateful and bigoted right? I just want to make sure that we have an equal playing field here. If some condemnations are hateful than all must be hateful right?

The simple truth is that these are not my views by which I mean I am not their author, they are the views of the God of heaven revealed in His holy Word. This world is at war with God and that warfare is no more evident or concentrated than its blessing upon homosexuality.

Increasingly the world will show us videos and pictures of men kissing men and women kissing women. This is the world’s way of indoctrination, the more it is seen the more it will eventually be accepted.But just remember as you see these images the couple on the left and the right are not the same in the eyes of God. The couple on the left has its origins in God’s creation and His blessing rests upon it. The origins of the couple on the right are not creation but the fall and God’s condemnation is upon it.

Speaking of hatred and bigotry just watch…Increasingly Christians and others who declare homosexuality is wrong will be the targets of governmental persecution. Our words will be called hate speech and ultimately our pulpits and churches will be the targets of legal action. Eventually prison and death will come to God’s people. Sound outlandish? All these things are bound up in the cultural war concerning homosexuality. Darkness hates light and will not bear its voice long. Far from outlandish, how has the world dealt with the Prophets, Apostles and our Savior before us?  Christians, this picture planted and adored by the world portends that days of real trial are just before us.
