Letter about Homosexuality is not God’s design...


Mon, Mar 2nd, 2015
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

This is a response to the internet user named “disappointed” in the Word on the Web section of the Feb. 23, 2015 issue of the Fillmore County Journal.

Homosexuality is not God’s design. Listen to what the Bible says.

“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.” (Leviticus 20:13) The man being a male and the woman being a female. In today’s society, even that can be confused now. What a disgusting shame! Abomination means kind of the same thing as saying “it’s a sin”. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus, our Lord.” (Roman’s 6:23) Also read Leviticus 18:22.

You say, “Gay people are living to God’s design, because God made them the way that they are.” God did not make them the way they are. Satan did. God created them, Satan deceived them. (James 1:13-14)

Homosexuality is not God’s design. It is an insult to God to say that it is. Amen!

Yes, homosexuality does threaten our children and also the father-mother family, of which is the foundation of our nation.

Yes, the Bible is God’s word. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for corrction, for instruction in righteousness.” (2 Timothy 3:16) For correction of ourselves, not of the Bible. Also, the word of God is same yesterday, today, and tomorrow. (Isaiah 40:8)

Now, don’t think that I’m an expert in the scriptures. I knew about these verses, but I had some help to locate the book, chapter, and verse of each one.

Thanks for reading. God bless you!
