As I conclude here, with Part III, if you believe in Christ and you’re still seeking men (being a man) for a relationship, then you need to relook your walk with Jesus and figure out what’s important…
We know that the Bible is God’s word (at least those that follow Christ and believe on Him)
Let’s finish this up: Paul said in Romans 12:1 “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God–this is your true and proper worship.” Is any of this behavior honoring God? Are we honoring God with our bodies? Homosexuality, pedophilia, necromania, and beastiality, are any of these honoring God with our bodies?
If you think any of these is okay, I’m praying for ya. If you’re a homosexual, murderer, pedophile, thief, or liar and you don’t know Jesus, then I’m praying for you as well… and I love ya. I love ya, because you are valuable possessions in God’s eyes and He wants to change your hearts so that He can love on you even more and show you all the blessings that He is able to supply.
So, what IS “Holy Behavior” Mike? Well, I’ll tell ya, Holy behavior is: “God’s will that you should be sanctified: that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not in passionate lust like the pagans, who do not know God; and that in this matter no one should wrong or take advantage of a brother or sister. The Lord will punish all those who commit such sins, as we told you and warned you before. For God did not call us to be impure, but to live a holy life. Therefore, anyone who rejects this instruction does not reject a human being but God, the very God who gives you his Holy Spirit. ” (1 Thessalonians 4:3-8)
The other passage I wanted to point out is in 1 Corinthians 6:7-20 ”
The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters. Or do you not know that wrongdoers WILL NOT INHERIT THE KINGDOM OF GOD? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men, nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
“I have the right to do anything,” you say—but not everything is beneficial. “I have the right to do anything”—but I will not be mastered by anything. You say, “Food for the stomach and the stomach for food, and God will destroy them both.” The body, however, is not meant for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also. Do you not know that your bodies are members of Christ himself? Shall I then take the members of Christ and unite them with a prostitute? Never! Do you not know that he who unites himself with a prostitute is one with her in body? For it is said, “The two will become one flesh.” But whoever is united with the Lord is one with Him in spirit.
Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a person commits are outside the body, but whoever sins sexually, sins against their own body. Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
2 Corinthians 5:17 says, If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature, old things have passed away, behold all things have become new.
I know that’s a lot of Bible reading, but God doesn’t want us to continue in our evil ways… He wants us to be like His Son, and we do that by acceptance, repentance and perseverance!! His word tells what God loves and doesn’t love. Anything that honors HIM, and doesn’t hurt you, HE LOVES. If you are dishonoring Him by doing hurtful things to others or yourself, He doesn’t love!!
If you are practicing homosexuality, it is a sin, and it must be stopped, if you are killing people, having sex with babies, having sex before marriage, lying, cheating, or stealing… the behavior NEEDS TO STOP.. Bring it to God, and He will bring it down!
God loves murderers, people who deal in child pornography, sexual deviants, and yes… EVEN HOMOSEXUALS…
But He doesn’t want you to stay that way. We as the “Church” have a skewed sense of “LOVE” and immediately condemn those homosexual individuals, but have turned their cheek, ignored the rapists, the murders and the baby killers!! It’s all sin, and it ALL must be eradicated!!!
If we were BUSY BEING THE CHURCH.. more unbelievers would be lining up to follow Jesus! If we were being the church, there would be people who are dying in sin coming with FULL HEARTS to GOD!
If we were being the church… we wouldn’t be judging ANYONE before coming to the cross! Jesus died for ALL… and HE can cleanse ALL from ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS!
Stop picking on homosexuals. We don’t see anything wrong with murderers, liars, thieves, or pedophiles… we say “they’re just sick” But let it be a homosexual, they are ready to lynch them and burn them at the stake!!
Love them, show them there’s a better way. Let Jesus transform THEIR LIVES by the way YOU ACT!!
Jesus came so that we may have life and life more abundantly…. shunning people for the way they are and act is totally contrary to Jesus’ ministry, which was to love others as we love ourselves…or HIM!!
Too many times Christians are known for what they are against, not what they are FOR. Well, let’s be FOR Jesus, LET’S BE the Christ Followers that HE emulated. We can still teach what the Bible teaches with conviction. Let us Love them, pray for them, and let GOD take control.
Same token: Pray for God’s hand in YOUR deliverance from evil! Don’t judge, just take care of what you need to take care of… leave all else to God..
