The truth of Romans 1 and what GOD says about homosexuality and other sin.
Once man removes the boundaries that GOD the Creator has put in place for HIS creation, there is no right and wrong, anything goes.
Without GOD, without an ultimate authority, where would morality come from? Well, man would have to make the rules on morality.
We all need to look at our life and deal with the sin in it. We repent and move forward.
If we find ourselves repenting and then simply doing the same thing over and over and over again, then it would seem that we are not living in the plan GOD has for us.
GAL 4:6, Have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?

GEN 19:1-Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening as Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them and bowed down.
When the disease of sin has become so accepted, protected, marginalized and normalized, it is fatal to any location, be it a family, a congregation, city, nation, place, etc. ROM 1 tells us what happens when GOD abandons a location a city due to their own decisions.
-Promote the UN as the only hope for mankind.
- Do away with all loyalty oaths, swearing on a Bible, allegiance to upholding the Constitution.
- Capture one of the political parties in the United States.
-Use the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
- Get control of the schools. Create and then get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
- Infiltrate, own and then control the press.
Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
-Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
- Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy, beautiful."
Discredit the Bible and emphasize evolution to convince people they don’t need a "religious crutch."
-Eliminate prayer and all Christian expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state." Ding
- Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
-Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats, slave owners.
- Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
- Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce. Ding
- Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up to solve economic, political or social problems.
JUD 7, Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
LEV 18:20-23, ‘You shall not have intercourse with your neighbor’s wife, to be defiled with her. You shall not give any of your offspring to offer them to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God; I am the LORD. ‘You shall not lie (shah hav sexual relations) with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.
EZE 16:49-50, Behold, this was the guilt of your sister Sodom: she and her daughters had arrogance, abundant food and careless ease, but she did not help the poor and needy. Thus they were haughty and committed abominations before Me. Therefore, I removed them when I saw it.
1TI 1:8-14, But 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.
I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service, even though I was formerly a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent aggressor. Yet I was shown mercy because I acted ignorantly in unbelief; and the grace of our Lord was more than abundant, with the faith and love which are found in Christ Jesus.
1CO 6:9-11, 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. 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.
ROM 1:16-17, For I am not ashamed of the gospel (good news) of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes (pistueo), for the Jew first and also for the Greek. For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”
ROM 1:20, For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes (are oh tos, things not seen) are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
ROM 1:21, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful (eucharisto)
but became futile in their thoughts (their thoughts were useless, of no purpose), and their foolish hearts (ah soon ah tos, stupid) were darkened.
ROM 1:22, Professing (declaring) to be wise (Sophos, with understanding), they became fools (moraino, morons) and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore, God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.
When a political party in GOD’s client nation not only affirms homosexuality, but encourages it and makes it something to worship, given rights that even exceed normal relationships, that is real hate speech.
ROM 1:25, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie (conscious and intentional falsehood in a broad sense, whatever is not what it seems to be of perverse, impious, deceitful precepts and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. They listened to men rather than the creator for their guidance, morals and lifestyle.
VS 26 For this reason, God gave them up to vile (disgraceful) passions. For their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise, also the men, leaving the natural function of woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men (male on male) committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error (something that is wrong) which was due (that which was or is necessary).
The human body is not made for same sex…sex, especially male to male. The human psyche is not made for it, it cannot handle it.
And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge (epignosis) God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, malice; gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful; and although they know the ordinance of God…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.
Without the creator, there is no one to whom man would be accountable to.
1.Life is random, so there is no purpose, nobody put us here, we are free to do what we want, when we want. We are accountable to no one. GOD is not in the equation. This is evolution. Man is evolving and will eventually turn into evolve into a perfect being.
PSA 81:11-13, "But my people would not listen to me; Israel would not submit to me. So, I gave them over to their stubborn hearts to follow their own devices. If my people would only listen to me, if Israel would only follow my ways,
- Truth is relative, no absolutes exist. Laws, ethics, norms can be changed through the media, the laws, society, etc.
PRO 14:12, There is a way which seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death.
- People are basically good, if they go bad well…they were probably abused, ignored, or not validated. It is not their fault, they are victims, you too can be a victim.
ISA 1:6, From the sole of your foot to the top of your head there is no soundness - only wounds and welts and open sores, not cleansed or bandaged or soothed with olive oil.
Man’s works are as filthy rags to the Creator. So that’s wrong.
- Everyone can change their own life under your own power. You can be whatever you want to be. You can do everything or anything you want to do. You are talented, you are special in your humanity. The key word is you or self. This is the belief that man can solve mans problems.
The LORD Jesus Christ says, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” Smiling Pastors with a mouthful of teeth and a head of hair have led many down a very dangerous path by teaching the power of positive thinking.
- The Goal of life is self-satisfaction. Feeling good about ourselves in who we are in the flesh. It is a false reality. This is about those who clean up the devil’s world so that they feel good about themselves.
The schools have become prisons in some ways, babysitters in other ways for 8 hours or more a day.
They have your children more than you do. And you better make your time relevant with them.
