The Christian Biblical Worldview on
has become politically correct to accept the argument that homosexuality is an
acquired trait rather than a learned behavior. Any other view is condemned as
intolerant, uncompassionate and even homophobic. This has placed pressure on
the Church to fall in line with recent changes in current thinking. Some, point
to scientific evidence as the compelling reason for changing our ideas and
theology in the Church. Just how compelling is the evidence that gays are born
England on Tuesday, February 5, 2013 the House of Commons voted 400 to
175 approving the second reading of a bill to legalize same-sex marriage in
England and Wales. [Parliaments in Scotland and Northern Ireland will have to
pass their own legislation on the subject].
top Conservative Party members appealed to get behind the controversial
legislation in a letter published in the Telegraph newspaper. The
letter, signed by Chancellor George Osborne, Foreign Secretary William Hague
and Home Secretary Theresa May, said that passing the bill is the right thing
to do at the right time. The institution of marriage has evolved over time,
the letter said, while attitudes towards gay people have changed.
attitude was echoed by Kate Green, a Labour MP:
recognizing and extending the definition of marriage to reflect todays greater
openness towards, and recognition of, same-sex relationships, the legislation
does not weaken the institution of marriage. On the contrary, it takes it
forward, it strengthens it. It helps to perpetuate it.
Tuesday, February 12, 2013 Frances lower house of parliament
approved a bill to legalize gay marriage and allow same-sex couples to adopt
children thus handing a major legislative victory to President Francois
Hollandes Socialists. The vote was approved in the National Assembly by a
2012, the States of Maine, Maryland and Washington passed laws establishing
same-sex marriages bringing the total to six States. France joined Britain, The
Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Spain, Argentina, Canada and South Africa in
authorizing gay marriage. While these countries are far more secular societies
than The United States, the trend is obvious.
the end of 2012, a new perversion of the King James Bible, based upon the 1769
third revision of the KJV, became available. It is entitled, The Queen
James Bible. The editors changed eight key sections to make the sin of
homosexuality supposedly acceptable as Christian doctrine.
Does God Say About Homosexuality?
Genesis 1:27-28, God revealed His original plan for marriage:
created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and
female He created them. God blessed them; and God said to them, Be fruitful
and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it; and rule over the fish of the
sea and over the birds of the sky and over every living thing that moves on the
created man and woman in order to have fellowship with Him, and they were to
reproduce and fill the earth. God did not make a man and a man, or a woman
and a woman, and tell them to go recruit [Besides, who would they recruit?]. In
Malachi 2:15, we are told that man and woman are to have godly children, who
would raise up godly children, who would raise up godly children.
Genesis 2:24, God performed the first marriage ceremony. God said: For this
reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his
wife; and they shall become one flesh.
did not say that a man shall leave his father and father, nor that he should
leave his mother and mother. A man is to leave his biological father and mother
and cleave to his wife.
the Sixth Commandment [Ex. 20:12], God says: Honor your father and your
mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the LORD your God
did not command that a man or woman honor their father and father, nor their
mother and mother.
makes His position very plain in Leviticus 18:22, You shall not lie with a
male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
the Creator of humans further emphasizes His clear position in Leviticus 20:13,
If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both
of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death.
Their blood guiltiness is upon them.
as God, gives us His divine commentary concerning this topic in Matthew
Pharisees came to Jesus, testing Him and asking, Is it lawful for a man to
divorce his wife for any reason at all? He answered and said, Have you not
read that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE,
and said, FOR THIS REASON A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER AND BE
JOINED TO HIS WIFE, AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH? So they are no longer
two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man
His defense of marriage as being only a heterosexual institution, Jesus quoted
Genesis 1:27 and 2:24. The basis for marriage is found in the creation
account of mankind, firmly anchored in Genesis.
Apostle Paul wrote his Letter to the Evolutionists which may be found
within his Letter to the Romans. It is contained in Romans 1:16-32.
After making two very positive statements, he makes it clear in verse 18
that ... the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of men [and woman] who suppress the truth in unrighteousness
making his great defense arguing for the existence of the Creator God using
The Argument by Design, Paul points out what happens when people reject the truths
of the existence of the Creator, His creation and the roles that He has given
men and women.
Romans 1:26-27, Paul wrote: For this reason God gave them over to degrading
passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is
unnatural, 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.
then continues with a litany of the consequences of the acceptance of evolution
within a society. The consequences include, but are not limited to: murder
(which includes abortion, euthanasia and suicide), becoming haters of God and
disobedient to parents. Finally, Paul concludes with a description of a Gay
Rights Parade in Rome: ... although they know the ordinance of God, that
those who practice such things are worthy of death, they not only do the same,
but also give hearty approval to those who practice them.
will continue this theme in two of his Epistles. In 1 Corinthians 6:9-11, he
writes to the Church in Corinth and speaks directly to some of the Church
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. Such were some
of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were
justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
Timothy 1:8-11, Paul wrote:
we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, realizing the fact that
law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and
rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those
who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers and immoral men and
homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is
contrary to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed
God, with which I have been entrusted.
Jude looked back to the judgment of Sodom and Gomorrah and wrote: ... just as
Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities around them, since they in the same way as
these indulged in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are
exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of eternal fire.
reviewed Gods opinion about the sin of homosexuality, we must be careful to
separate the sin from the sinner; and, consider if the cause of homosexuality
is genetic or moral.
Homosexuality Genetically Inherited?
the past 25 years we have seen scientific studies which have tried to prove
that homosexuality is genetically inherited. All of the studies:
starting with the 1991 Simon LeVay gay brain studies; the gay twin study of
Bailey and Pillard; the study by Dean Hamer, who postulated the presence of a
possible gene which could influence the expression of homosexuality; as well as
later studies through which the genes of fruit flies were genetically
engineered; research on parental hormones; and, heritable epigenetics studies
are riddled with scientific inconsistencies, lack of control groups, the bias
of the researchers and even gross errors. Indeed, upon peer review these
studies have now been either rejected or are considered highly speculative by
the medical community.
the strong feminist advocate, and wife of super-evolutionist Dr. George Wald,
Dr. Ruth Hubbard, Professor Emerita in Biology, Harvard University, concluded
in her article False Genetic Markers, New
York Times, 2 August 1993, p. A15:
the search for gay genes comes directly out of the success of the gay rights
struggle. But studies of human biology cannot explain the wide range of human
behavior. Such efforts fail to acknowledge that sexual attraction depends on
personal experience and cultural values and that desire is too complex, varied
and interesting to be reduced to genes.
1991, Dr. Simon LeVay (an openly gay neuroscientist) published an article
entitled A difference in hypothalamic structure between heterosexual and
homosexual men in Science. The article reported a difference in average
size between the third Interstitial Nucleus of the Anterior Hypothalamus
(INAH3) in the brains of heterosexual men and homosexual men. He wrote that
This finding indicates that INAH is dimorphic with sexual orientation, at
least in men, and suggests that sexual orientation has a biological
S. (1991). A difference in hypothalamic structure between homosexual and heterosexual
men. Science, 253, 1034-1037.
gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual community immediately jumped on his
article as proof that their condition was genetic and irreversible.
his credit, LeVay tried to curb this enthusiasm in a 1994 interview in which he
stated: Its important to stress what I didnt find. I did not prove that
homosexuality is genetic, or find a genetic cause for being gay. I didnt show
that gay men are born that way, the most common mistake people make in
interpreting my work. Nor did I locate a gay center in the brain. The INAH3 is
less likely to be the sole gay nucleus of the brain than a part of a chain of
nuclei engaged in men and womens sexual behavior. [Emphasis added]
Nimmons, Sex and the Brain, Discover Magazine, March 1994.
LeVays research has come under great scrutiny for various reasons:
small sample size on non-living subjects (only 35 were studied), his personal
gay bias, and most of the studied cadavers were from gay men who had died from
second study done in 1991 is known as the Bailey and Pillards gay twin study.
Their study supposedly showed that there was a correlation of identical twins
being more often homosexual than fraternal twins. This might indicate a genetic
basis for homosexuality.
flaw in their study is that they advertised for participants in openly gay
newspapers. How could this be a valid study?
which followed these tried to link chromosomal information to sexual
orientation. These studies were supposedly looking for a gay gene. These
studies included those by Dean Hamer (1993), Hu et al. (1995), and Sanders et
al. (1998). All of these claimed to have found an X chromosome marker in
homosexual men. But, other studies done by Bailey et al. (1999), Rice et al.
(1999), and McKnight and Malcolm (2000) failed to duplicate the results. A
recent study of 894 heterosexual and 694 homosexual men found no evidence of
chromosomal linkage. [Emphasis added]

and physical correlates of sexual orientation in men. Archives of Sexual
Behavior 39 (1): 93109.
studies have looked at birth order, epigenetics, pheromones, imprinting and
brain structure. Currently over 700 studies have been published trying to find
a genetic link to homosexuality in order to support the concept that gays are
just born that way.
of the results, that there is no genetic link to homosexuality, the
underlying driving force in all these studies is the desire to promote an
evolutionary agenda and to promote the idea that homosexuals may lead their
lives free from any consequences - that they may lead a sinless life without
anything can be genetically inherited, such as hemophilia, it can be expected
to happen at a certain rate. With homosexuality we find, however, that the
prevalence within a community varies enormously depending on the kinds of
social control and acceptance that prevail in that community.
genetics is not the cause, what is? There is ample evidence to confirm that
learning experiences (e.g. seduction, public education, molestation and
experimentation) lead young people down the path to homosexual behavior. The
homosexual lifestyle is sterile. Therefore, it follows that homosexuals must of
necessity, through seduction and public education, recruit their next
is not an alternative lifestyle, it is an unnatural lifestyle.
This has extremely serious implications for society as a whole and destroys the
argument that gay behavior is private and has no effect on others. It would do
great harm if the Church, by giving theological approval to homosexuality,
becomes part of the problem of expanding this perversion instead of helping
people bound by it.
further proof that homosexuality is not an alternative lifestyle, but an
unnatural one, I cite a report from The Family Research
Institute (FRI) that conducted a nationwide random survey of 4,340 adults drawn
from five U.S. cities in 1983. The FRI found that:
82% of those currently lesbian and 66% of
those currently gay said that they had been in love with someone of the
67% of lesbians and 54% of gays reported
current sexual attraction to the opposite sex.
85% of lesbians and 54% of gays, as adults,
had sexual relations with someone of the opposite sex.
32% of gays and 47% of lesbians had been
Overall, 7.8% of women and 12% of men claimed
to have been homosexually aroused at some point in their life. Yet 59% of the
once homosexually aroused women and 51% of the once homosexually aroused men
were currently heterosexual.
5.1% of the women and 9.4% of the men
admitted to at least one homosexual partner. Of these, only 58% of the women
and 61% of the men were currently gay.
Almost a third of those who
admitted to homosexual relations in adulthood were now heterosexual.
such findings demonstrate that sexual orientation is not predetermined
before or after birth, and that it is not permanently fixed in adulthood.
Non-Heterosexual Behavior a Victimless Crime
proponents of homosexual and non-heterosexual (gay, lesbian, bisexual,
transgender, and even pedophilia) behavior and same-sex marriage declare that
there is no harm to society in participating in such activities. They declare
that there are no victims, since supposedly all such activity is by mutual
is this proposition true?
The argument that what happens behind closed doors is none of anyone elses
business is not true. Private behavior often has very public
consequences. Statistics clearly show that homosexual behavior is
destructive and bears high costs, not only to the individual, but to society.
behavior has implications far beyond the bedroom. Last year the U.S. government
spent billions of dollars on AIDS treatment, research and programs. AIDS
in the U.S. is largely a disease stemming from the unhealthy sexual practices
of homosexuals and non-heterosexuals (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, and
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, has
reported time and again that the homosexual community is at increased risk
for a number of mental and physical health threats when compared to their
September 12, 2008, Health24 reported that:
and bisexual men and women may face higher risks of depression, substance abuse
and suicidal behavior than heterosexuals do ..."
an analysis of 25 past studies on sexual orientation and mental health, UK
researchers found that across the studies, gay, lesbian and bisexual adults
were at least 50% more likely than heterosexuals to have a history of
depression or an anxiety disorder. [Emphasis added]
Paul and Kirk Cameron of the Family Research Institute revealed in 2007 that the
lifespan of a homosexual is on average 24 years shorter than that of a
heterosexual. The homosexual lifestyle is highly promiscuous with many
serious health hazards.
and lesbian members of the homosexual community have very high rates of
sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) including HIV/AIDS; high rates of suicide;
increased rates of breast cancer in lesbians and anal cancer in gay men; very
high illegal drug use and alcoholism; high rates of Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
infection of which over 20 are incurable; high rates of Hepatitis A, B and C;
gay men suffer from Gay Bowel Syndrome; and, high rates of physical violence
and murder compared to the married heterosexual community.
may ask, Why would any rational human being who wants to lead a long and
healthy life want to join such a community?
About Same-sex Couples Adopting Children?
couples within the homosexual community are now adopting children. The
promoters of such adoptions claim that there is no harm in such adoptions.
is not true. 35% of children raised in same-sex marriage
homes drop back one grade while in school. Children in homosexual households
score lower in verbal skills, vocabulary, composition, and basic math skill;
they were less likely to be involved with sports and other group activities;
and, they were regarded by their teachers as introverts and loners. Furthermore,
the homosexual parents were less likely to visit or volunteer at the childrens
schools, or help with homework.
homosexuality is a learned behavior, it is obvious that children
raised in such homes will learn from their environment and have sexual identity
problems. There are also problems associated with legal recognition between
States; the inherent instability within the home of homosexual partners as the
average relationship is only two to three years; and, a shocking 29% of
children raised by homosexuals are sexually abused compared to only a 0.6%
incest rate among married heterosexual homes*.
Cameron and K. Cameron, Homosexual Parents, Adolescence 31 (1996): 772.
are Dangers to a Society Accepting Deviancy
1973, Dr. Karl Menninger wrote a book entitled Whatever Became of Sin?
Perhaps an equal question would be, Whatever Became of Shame? In 1993,
Senator Daniel Moynihan (D - NY) wrote that when deviancy is normalized by a
legislature it decays the fabric of a society.
a society removes the consequences of individual human actions then we open the
door for all behavior to be considered as normal and acceptable.
While I am deeply concerned about the dumbing down of our education system, I
am also deeply concerned about the effects of dumbing down deviancy. The
promotion of homosexuality as normal and acceptable in TV shows, textbooks and
movies is a clear example of what Senator Moynihan was warning about.
God knows what is and is not good behavior, both for individuals and for a
society. Biblical marriage is strictly between a man and a woman; there are no
exceptions in either biblical example or instruction. We must remember that
there is a great deal of distinction between desire and behavior. Same-sex
marriage is neither God ordained nor socially healthy.
are Dangers in Accepting a Genetic Origin for Homosexuality
Christians truly love their fellow human beings and want everyone to receive
and accept the Gospel message, why must we fully realize that homosexuality is
not genetically inherited?
The argument supporting genetic inheritance implies that homosexuals have
abnormal genes and are either defective or diseased.
If genes are the cause of homosexuality, and abortion on demand is now common
place, prenatal testing might influence heterosexual parents to abort babies
likely to carry homosexual genes.
the gay lobby in the USA has already expressed fears about this. Strange as it
may seem; strange bedfellows though they may be; the gay community is
staunchly pro-life. Heterosexuals are seen as baby producers. Where else
would the homosexual community find its next generation if heterosexuals were
to stop reproducing?
Genetic research discoveries are unlikely to stop. While it will never
happen, what if pedophile genes, murder genes, rapist genes or
bestiality genes were to be found? Would not the Church have to reconsider its
ordination or evangelism policies in the light of such new discoveries?
If homosexuality were genetic in origin it would mean that the condition is
unchangeable. This would infer that God made them that way.
this were true, then God is capricious; He has contradicted His
giving of full and total free will to each individual and decided ahead of time
who will be saved and who will be condemned. In effect, the gift of salvation
is not really for everyone.
are Theological Pitfalls in Justifying Homosexuality
is a great overstatement to say that the Church is divided on the homosexual
issue. Christians should be clear on the fact that homosexuality is wrong,
while at the same time lovingly reaching out to all who might receive the
gift of Gods grace. Those seeking to give theological justification to
homosexuality and those who have compromised their theology in its favor, need
to seriously reconsider their position.
of homosexuality in Leviticus is clear and backed up by other passages outside
of the Levitical code. Why would the Church wait until the 21st Century to
change the accepted meaning of Gods laws and roles concerning sexuality?
homosexual proponents want to redefine marriage as monogamous sexual
relationships. The homosexual psyche, however, drives its adherents toward
constant affairs and cruising which happen outside the relationship. A good
example of this is what happened to the Rt. Rev. John Spong, Episcopalian
Bishop of Newark, New Jersey. In his 1990 book Living in Sin? : A Bishop
Rethinks Human Sexuality he claimed to base his views on new medical
insights, but failed to consider evidence from psychology or the total lack of
evidence from genetics. Even the sympathetic Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement
concluded charitably that Spong was somewhat out of his depth.
December 16, 1989, Bishop Spong ordained Robert Williams as a priest, a man
openly living with his gay lover James Skelly, who also took part in the
service. The hopes of Bishop Spong that Mr. Williams would be a model of
holiness, fidelity and monogamy were soon dashed. Williams was put in charge of
a special ministry in the lesbian and gay community and immediately claimed
that monogamy was as crazy an idea as celibacy.
Corinthians 6:9-10 and I Timothy 1:9-10: the two Greek words used are malakoi
and arsenokoitai. In I Timothy only arsenokoitai appears. Arsenokoitai
refers to men who take the active role in homosexual activity. The word refers
to mainstream homosexual activity. Malakoi is a Greek slang term for
males, not necessarily boys, who took the passive role in sexual relations. It
refers to an effeminate sexually active homosexual.
who plead for tolerance and acceptance of homosexuals by accepting their
behavior as biblically justified are uncaring about these people who so
desperately need our help. True love and compassion would offer the biblical
cure for sin. We, including homosexuals, are born with inherent sin but,
through Gods love we are redeemed and changed through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Sex is a wonderful gift of God and not sinful when used according to the plan
that God has so clearly laid out in His Word.
Church consists of redeemed heterosexuals and homosexuals, neither is worse
than the other; both have to forsake their sinful and immoral ways.
us hold out the Gospel hope to all: ...fornicators, adulterers, effeminate,
homosexuals ... such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were
sanctified, but you were justified in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, and in
the Spirit of God. (I Corinthians 6:9, 11)
