What does it mean when something is an abomination?

Does the Apostle Paul try to condemn gay people in the book of Romans?

What does Paul mean by natural and unnatural?

Is the Christian community homophobic? Is the gay community Christian-o-phobic?

What does God expect from us be we gay or straight?

Theme Scripture: 1 Timothy 2:5-6

The world is changing. It is changing at an ever-quickening pace and in a more dramatic and fundamental way than ever, as well. Within the last few months, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in favor of gay marriage, changing the definition of a 6,000 year-old institution. Okay, so what should we as Christians be doing now? Complain? Protest? Fight? Accept? What does the Bible really say about marriage, homosexuality and our Christian responsibilities?  We want to take an honest look at what God expects from us whether we are gay or straight. We will take a look at certain texts that have been interpreted on both sides of the issue.

On this podast, we lay out some simple and basic biblical facts about what the Bible does NOT say:

  1. Homosexuality as physiological orientation is never discussed in the Bible, and natural gay orientation is not a scriptural concept.
  2. A loving gay relationship is never referenced in any of the Scriptures that deal with sexual behavior.
  3. Jesus never spoke or taught directly about homosexuality.
  4. The Bible does NOT single out homosexuality as a sin above all sins.

The Apostle Paul was clear that there are a lot of different categories of behaviors that can keep us out of the kingdom, and some true Christians had previously done these things.  There is a higher standard of living for those called by God, but how does all of this relate to our times?

    dear brothers in Christ,
    I appreciate your service on this radio show. I started listening to you after the general convention. I was attending on-line. There are a lot of topics that you cover that are so helpful , I have a friend down the road who is in the nominal system. He is a good man and is well versed in his bible. He is however torn , because his daughter is gay. He believes that she is lost. I have tried to explain the aspects of two salvations , but so far he has not heard. I think we are very close to the end. I appreciate any of the Elijah work that is going on.
    Your brother in Christ,
    Ken Allison

    “Rev 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
    Rev 22:2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
    Rev 22:3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
    Rev 22:4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
    Rev 22:5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
    Rev 22:6 And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
    Rev 22:7 Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
    Rev 22:8 And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
    Rev 22:9 Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
    Rev 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
    Rev 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
    Rev 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
    Rev 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.”
