VIII. MAIN BODY:
A. Women and men should not wear what is not for them
"The woman shall not wear that which pertains to a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment,"
Being male and female will be lost if you don't acknowledge the LORD GOD, the Creator of all the earth in your heart. That's why unbelievers are often either homosexual or lesbian. They will tell you it's inborn, they acquired it from youth, they tell you it's because the environment they were brought in. They will blame everyone and even blame GOD, but in reality, they are to be blame because they never gave GOD glory and honor.
Romans 1:21-28 (Amplified Bible)
Because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks. But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened.
Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves].
And by them the glory and majesty and excellence of the immortal God were exchanged for and represented by images, resembling mortal man and birds and beasts and reptiles.
Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their [own] hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin],
Because they exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, Who is blessed forever! Amen (so be it).
For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions. For their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one,
And the men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze (burning out, consumed) with lust for one another—men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own odies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of their wrong-doing and going astray, which was [their] fitting retribution.
And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome,
