Summary: A sermon that speaks about the sinful nature of a homosexual.
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants. Ye shall therefore keep my statutes and my judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations; neither any of your own nation, nor any stranger that sojourneth among you: (For all these abominations have the men of the land done, which were before you, and the land is defiled;) That the land spue not you out also, when ye defile it, as it spued out the nations that were before you. For whosoever shall commit any of these abominations, even the souls that commit them shall be cut off from among their people. Therefore shall ye keep mine ordinance, that ye commit not any one of these abominable customs, which were committed before you, and that ye defile not yourselves therein: I am the LORD your God.”
Diverse perversity is a play on words that relate to how society wants to view the homosexual lifestyle as diversity. But the bible clearly states that this kind of lifestyle is perversion and an abomination to God.
Since God views this type of behavior as an abomination then we as Christians need to take the same view as God, because we are either with Him or against Him. We also need to take into account that God hates sin, but loves a sinner and wants to see them repent. Likewise, we should also not hate the person living in a homosexual lifestyle, but hate the sin of homosexuality. We need to witness to them as we do any other person that we come across and do so with love and compassion.
Now I use the term lifestyle when I speak of homosexuality, because it is just that: a style of life that they chose to live in. Some may ask, what about the “gay gene, being born gay, or that’s the way god made them?” Well, noted scientists have proven that there is no such gene in the human body, let alone one in any gay person. They have found that the study done by the scientist that found the “so-called gay gene” was flawed in many areas and it only applied to men. And what they have come up with is the conclusion that homosexuality is a learned or taught behavior, which is related to their environment. It has been found that 75% are that way because of abuse early in their life and the remaining percentage are like that because of either a lack of a same-sex role model, the lack of sex education by their parents, or just a plain desire to go against the grain.
And speaking of education it must be noted that the school system has been hi-jacked by homosexual activists to promote their lifestyle as acceptable and to further promote same sex marriages. Yes, this is being taught in our schools today. And what is even more frightening is that the homosexual community is targeting our young to make in-roads for their diverse perversity. For as one pro-homosexual author has written: “ Whoever captures the kids owns the future.”
And it is for this reason I have taken up the challenge to talk about what the bible says about same sex anything.
In the scripture that I just read we see that the Israelites are being warned to not practice this type of lifestyle, as well as any form of bestiality, which is a human mating with an animal. Otherwise the land would spew them out, much like a person vomiting out something that has caused them complete nausea and sickness. Now before you start thinking that this only applies to the Jewish people read verse 27 again. In it is stated that the Canaanites, Amorites, and others before them were cast out for the very same reason. Like Sodom, Gormorrah, and cites of the plains between them they too were destroyed because of their diverse perversity. The story of the destruction of Sodom is given in chapter 19 of Genesis, but the lead in to their wickedness is found in Genesis 13:13:
“But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the Lord exceedingly.”
Exceedingly…we see they went out of their way to be wicked, and that wickedness was homosexuality and other sexual perversions. And we see this kind of attitude in these day and ages. In the days preceding hurricane Katrina devastating New Orleans, there was a planned parade called the “Decadence Day” parade, which was a gay pride activity in which they had stated they would be far worse than the prior year’s parade. They had planned to be exceedingly wicked.
