Don’t let the title fool you. And don’t JUDGE the title without first reading this blog post. Too many times we “read a book by it’s cover” and don’t take a look at the inner workings of a person, a thing, or, in this case….”The Bible” because of the array of thought and material, I am making this a 3 part blog, this being part I of course.
Now, let me preface by saying that if you don’t believe in the Bible, Christ, Christianity, God, or any of this sort of thing.. then you might as well not bother reading this blog. Not that I wouldn’t want you to, I mean, if you’re even remotely interested, at least look at it.
This is mostly for people that profess the Lord Jesus as their personal Savior and think that sleeping with other men (if you’re a man) or women (if you’re a woman)…is okay.
This is also for those who USE the Bible to validate their homosexuality. Because, I am not only going to use the Bible to bring the truth, but I am also going be an advocate for those that are homosexual BUT have NOT YET come to the knowledge of Eternal Life given by our Savior Jesus Christ, who died, once and for all to those who BELIEVE!
God put this on my heart tonight, and actually continually because it has become a prevalent topic of conversation these days.
Let me first quote some scripture, and then attempt to blow your mind with some revelation brought to me recently.. hang on to your seat!!
****Okay, so, Genesis 1: 26-28:
“Then God said, “Let us make mankind IN OUR IMAGE, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; MALE AND FEMALE he created them.
God blessed them and said to them, “BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY” fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
Okay, first off. God created MAN in HIS own image. Here is where the mind blowing thing happens. ORIGINAL MAN was created in GOD’S IMAGE… after the first sin. (Adam and Eve eating of tree of the knowledge of good and evil after God explicitly saying DON’T eat of that TREE!)
So, after this first SIN (In Genesis 3), God JUSTLY punished them by telling Eve:
“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
and he will rule over you.”
To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’
“Cursed is the ground because of you;
through painful toil you will eat food from it
all the days of your life.
It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
and you will eat the plants of the field.
By the sweat of your brow
you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
since from it you were taken;
for dust you are and to dust you will return.”
So, it is safe to say that sin brought in SUFFERING to the world. SIN brought in SICKNESS to the world, sin brought in PAIN, SICKNESS, EVIL into the world…
After Adam and Eve had Cain and Abel (WHO WERE NOT CREATED IN GOD’S IMAGE) the catalyst for sin was set into motion with Cain murdering his brother Abel. God made Eden PERFECT. No suffering, everything was perfect. Adam and Eve were NOT EVEN AWARE that they were naked!!
And because of the first act of sin, all mankind have to toil, and work, and get sick…and women have pain in childbirth…etc.
So: please don’t use the argument for homosexuality..that God created you in His own image… because HE didn’t create YOU in His image…He created ADAM and JESUS in HIS OWN IMAGE. Got it? Good.
This concludes part I. The point here is that Adam and Jesus were made perfect, IN GOD’S IMAGE, and even though we are in the likeness of God, we are not in His image. The other point I was trying to make was that God created FEMALE for the MALE. And not any other combination that we feel is appropriate today!
