This should be easy for us Christians to understand. In the book of Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13 – the Bible teaches us that homosexual activity is an abomination, which means a disgraceful sin. The Bible also tells us that Marriage can only be between a man and a woman. We as Christian should love the sinner but hate the sin. We should be more concern about people salvation, and relationship with God.
The reason for confusion is because most Christians do not study the Bible and they really do not understand who Jesus Christ really is. We do not understand sin. Sin is disobedience to God’s laws or instructions. First of all we must understand that this entire universe was created and is the property of Almighty, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The Lord Jesus Christ, after his resurrection was given all authority in Heaven and on Earth. God is the one who determines what is right and wrong, good and evil. Jesus can down from heaven to provide salvation, he was the Lamb of God. The pre-incarnate Jesus was the one who wrote and gave the Commandments to Moses in Deuteronomy Chapter 5. Remember when Moses came down from the Holy Mountain of God. How the people were practicing every abomination. God killed all those who refuse to obey his Laws.
Today by his grace, God wants to save everyone from the law of sin and death. However, most people will reject God’s Salvation in these last days. Jesus said in Matthew 24:36-44 and Genesis chapter 7: that in the last days, it will be like it was in the days of Noah. In the days of Noah the people were practicing every abomination. God said he was sorry that he had made people. Then the great flood came, and every person on the earth died, except for Noah and his family. Then we also see that the pre-incarnate Jesus Christ visiting Abraham with two Angels in Genesis chapter 17-18. The pre-incarnate Jesus went back to heaven, and in Genesis chapter 19, the two Angels went into the City of Sodom and Gomorrah to bring out Lot and his family, before they destroyed the cities and wicked people. We know in this Bible account in Genesis chapter 19: that the men in the city rejected Lot’s offer to take his two virgin daughters for sex and not touch the two men (Angels). These men wanted to have sex with the two men in Lot’s house which were Angels in the form of men. God destroyed the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and all were killed.
God shall punish the wicked and evil. God is just, therefore he must punish sin. These are the last days, the Lord will be coming back soon to Rapture his Church. Stand firm Saints! On the Word of God, and do not be deceived for God will not be mocked! Judgment day is coming!
