GOODMORNING-HOMOSEXUALITY


With the schism in the Anglican communion, the Constitutional amendment in the United States to define marriage as between a man and a woman, and in light of various ‘human rights’ laws around the world that vilify those who speak against homosexuality, more Christians are asking what the Christian position towards homosexuality should be. While only a tiny percentage of people are homosexual, the gay lifestyle is becoming mainstream – at least in some circles and in the media. Let’s examine what the Bible says about homosexuality, and clear up a few myths in the process.

First, let’s start with some fundamental groundwork. Some people, uneducated in scripture, are under the mistaken impression that all forms of sexuality are sinful according to the Bible. With this misconception, they readily disregard anything the Bible might say with regards to sexuality, choosing instead to side with their sexual desires. What they don’t understand is that they are completely wrong. Sex is a creation of God, who pronounced all His creation “good!” Sexuality is not sinful. It is a wonderful part of God’s plan.

God put a limit on sex, though. Yes, a limit – only one. There is no long dissertation on the do’s and don’ts of sex. The only caveat to the enjoyment of sex is this: sex is meant to be enjoyed in the context of marriage – not outside of it. Unfortunately, these days we must be specific. Sex is to be enjoyed within the context of a marriage between a man and a woman. That’s it! That’s the limit. Genesis 2:24-25 says, “Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” Hebrew 13:4 says, “Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.” All sexual sins (i.e. promiscuity, adultery, homosexuality, prostitution, etc.) are sins because they do not conform to the limit of sex being a marital activity. Now of course some of you will point out the list of sexual activity prohibited by the Mosaic laws, but let’s not address those issues of the law from which Paul said we are now free. Instead, let’s stick to those ancient commands that endure eternal. To that end, the above-mentioned single rule is how we are to judge sexual morality.

The men of Sodom and Gomorrah were the first recorded in the Bible to face punishment for their sexual perversion. In Genesis chapter 19, we find two angels that pay a visit to Lot’s home in Sodom. In verse four, we find that “all the men from every part of Sodom” surrounded Lot’s house, and told Lot to bring out his visitors “so that we can have sex with them.” The pro-homosexual revisionist argues that the wickedness of Sodom and Gomorrah was that the residents wanted to commit an act of rape. That the rape would have been homosexual is not an issue, according to their argument. However, Jude 7 indicates that Sodom and Gomorrah’s punishment was due to their sexual perversion. Their sin was not simply one of violence (rape) but of sexual immorality (homosexuality). As further evidence of the sinful nature of homosexuality, Leviticus 18:22, and 20:13 both describe homosexuality as “an abomination.”

Contrary to the opinions of some, the Old Testament is not the only place in the Bible that condemns homosexuality. We previously mentioned Hebrews 13:4, where Paul exhorted us to honor the marriage bed and keep it pure. In Romans 1:26-27 Paul is very specific, “For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.” In 1 Corinthians 6:9, Paul wrote, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind.” The Greek word from which the King James Bible gets the word “effeminate” is malakos, which literally means something soft to the touch, but is used as a negative metaphor to refer to a boy kept for homosexual relations with a man. The “abusers of themselves with mankind” are those men who engage in unnatural sexual relations with other men – homosexuals. That is also how the NASB, the NKJV, and the NIV translate that verse. Also in the New Testament is verse 7 from the book of Jude, defining exactly why Sodom and Gomorrah were punished – homosexuality.

Having established that homosexuality is a sin, we must now face that we live in increasingly pro-homosexual societies. The media and the schools have become mouthpieces for the gay subculture, and are working hard to marginalize those of us who take a moral, biblical stance on the issue. School sex education programs based on the curriculum developed by SIECUS champion homosexuality as being normal and healthy, while encouraging teenagers to ignore the values of their parents if their parents feel homosexuality is wrong. “Gay” television shows are popping up on networks like Bravo and on other networks as well.

In many nations, current and existing laws are including slurs against homosexuality in the definition of hate crimes. In fact, some in Canada have found themselves in legal trouble for reading the first chapter of Romans over the airwaves. This is a pattern that is sweeping the Western world, and I predict we’ll see similar legislation in the United States within the next few years. While the Canadian Parliament claims that a religious exemption in their recent hate speech bill will protect speech of a religious nature, in practice Canadians have already been prosecuted by human rights tribunals for things as simple as listing the same Bible verses above in a newspaper advertisement.

Even the church today is not immune to the mainstreaming of immorality. The Anglican Communion, including the Episcopal Church in the United States is suffering a rift because of the appointment of an openly homosexual bishop. This rift is widened because some of its leaders have deemed it appropriate to perform homosexual marriages. The Methodist Church has allowed openly homosexual ministers to retain their positions. Let me make this clear: I do not oppose allowing homosexuals to attend church. In fact, I think that’s where they should be. However, we must not condone sinful immorality by allowing our clergy to practice it openly. Homosexuality is a sin. Homosexuals are unrepentant of their sin. If they were repentant, they would no longer identify themselves as homosexual. Just as no church would allow their minister to engage in an ongoing adulterous affair and retain his position, so we must not allow homosexual ministers to retain their positions of leadership.

Homosexual advocates will contend that homosexuality is natural, and some will point to homosexual activity within some animal species as evidence. However, it’s not hard to figure out that homosexuality is decidedly unnatural. My wife and I used to have a couple of pendant necklaces. Each of us had half of a pendant on our necklace. When we put our two halves together, the zigzag pattern meshed together flawlessly to create a single, whole pendant (which, by the way, bore the words of Genesis 2:24). God made men and women different, both emotionally and physically. Physically, we were created to fit together anatomically much like our pendant. Our parts just match up! Remember the child’s game of matching the round peg into the round hole, the square peg into the square hole, etc.? The homosexual is trying to force two pegs together, in blatant disregard for God’s natural design! The argument above also falls flat on its face when you consider that some animal species also eat their young. I don’t think we can extrapolate that into an acceptable practice for human beings.

These same homosexual advocates will claim that homosexuality is genetic. NOT TRUE! Nobody is ‘born homosexual.’ In 1993, Dean Hamer of the National Cancer Institute claimed to have found a genetic link to homosexuality. Yet in 1999, the results of an intensive study by the University of Western Ontario found that Hamer was in error. The fact is that after all the attempts to show a genetic cause for homosexuality, no such genetic cause has been found. A British psychologist has had enormous success in providing “reorientation” therapy to homosexuals who want to change. This is not a surgery or a medical treatment, but it is effective. How could it be effective if the cause of homosexuality is physical? Well, it couldn’t be. Homosexuality is a choice, not a genetic predisposition.

Also untrue is the label applied to those who don’t approve of homosexuality. “Homophobe” has been applied to anyone speaking negatively of homosexuality or of homosexuals. But in 2002, a study by the University of Arkansas was publicized that showed that term to be inaccurate. While a phobia is a fear, researchers found that those termed “homophobic” exhibited no traces of fear. The study subjects’ reactions ranged from disapproval to disgust, but none showed any fear.

God’s laws were handed down for our benefit. HIV and AIDS, while no longer exclusive to homosexuals, are still much more rampant and spreading more quickly among the gay community (at least in the western nations). Our children are at risk as well. While GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network) will tell your seventh-grader during a school assembly that heterosexual men molest more children than homosexual men do, they are not telling the whole story. That statistic is only true because homosexuals make up less than 5% of the population. Statistically though, a homosexual man is 10 to 20 times more likely than a heterosexual man to sexually abuse a minor.

A few “Christians” have hurt the cause of morality by acting out violently and/or hatefully against homosexuals. When Matthew Shepherd was killed for being homosexual,* a Baptist congregation gathered outside the courthouse during his killers’ trial. They held up banners that stated how many days Shepherd had been in hell, and used some disgusting names to describe him. They seemed to be happy that he had been brutally murdered. Hate is not the answer to anything. Every one of us is sinful, yet every one of us is loved by God. Jesus did not celebrate the death of Matthew Shepherd, and neither should we. “Hate the sin, but love the sinner,” is how the saying goes, and that applies to homosexuals as well.

With that said, we must not be afraid to stand up and champion the cause of morality. Some will call us bigots and homophobes for our belief that homosexuality is a sin, but we cannot let name-calling soften our beliefs in God’s moral code. The pro-homosexual movement can only marginalize us if we allow ourselves to be marginalized. There are two ways we can do that: a) we exhibit hate toward homosexuals rather than love, or b) we remain silent. We must proudly champion God’s love toward the homosexual without condoning his or her behavior. Let His love shine through us, and may we all be examples of the morality God desires.

HOW IS DOLLY BABY BOO RIGHT NOW?

xpert: Isabelle Stewart – 11/18/2010
Question
i am desperately seeking advise as to what to do next.
here’s my story.I am a 24 year old black female from
Jamaica.and i am currently married to a 39 year old white
guy from the U.S.he is a U.S citizen just to add.we are a
interracial couple and he’s 15 years older than i am.

i got married at the age of 23 years old while still living
with my parents.and my husband at the time was 38 years
old.we had met in a social website called hi5 of last year
may 2009 and got married October 2009.so we approximately
dated for 4 months before we tied the not.we had met each
other in the social network website called hi5.the first two
months of our relationship was great.

in third month of the relationship it was really
terrible.because he uses talk nasty to me..he was always
constantly verbally abusing me at the time and i did not see
it until now.but he did wanted us to get married august of
last year 2009.i was unsure of marrying him cause we had not
known each other for a long time.he was always and
constantly forcing and pressuring me into marrying him.my
family didn’t approve of him for me to marry him cause they
were saying i don’t know him.i don’t anything about him and
he’s probably a psycho and they don’t believe in the whole
idea of hooking up with anyone online..I did not listen
despite the warnings.

anyway it was really hard for me to decide and make up my
mind because one side of my mind is saying go for it while
the other side is saying get to know him more.i wasn’t gonna
marry him but he just keeps putting the pressure on me so i
give in.

all through the marriage right up until this day is very
rocky.i have to constantly put up with verbally abuse.at
times when he get upset on the phone he told me if i was
near by him he would choke me.he’s currently doing the CR1
visa for me to go live in the U.S.but i don’t wanna go cause
i fear my life and that he’s gonna bring harm to me.

he had visited me this year August 2010 in Jamaica and when
he was here he told me he had scoliosis.something i wasn’t
aware of when i plan on marrying him..but he decide to tell
me later on down the road.he had lied to me about a lot of
things.

the main reason why i want an annulment is that i came to
find out a month ago that he had been impersonating me
online..especially in Facebook,Myspace,Hi5,Tagged,Netlog and
so much more i probably not aware of.but he had been
impersonating me as a lesbian/bi-sexual female which am not
and never will be either.because he had impersonate me he
had hit on girls from Jamaica all across the world..but
especially girls who lives in my town.and when i tried to
consult them online to tell them it’s not me doing it…they
threaten to physical harm me if they ever see me face-to-
face.

he had manage to stole my identity (Identity theft) and had
manage to ruin my image and reputation as a person.cause i
came to found out her had post naked pictures and videos of
me on Facebook and other people are coping in it and posting
it to other websites…like this particular website
http://jamaicangroupiemet.com/2010/11/dolly-baby-boo.html
which they no longer has the post cause they later deleted
it after i contact them about it.

his behavior is sick and perverted.i think he has a mental
disorder or something…cause there’s no way a normal person
who loves another and care for them would do this.because of
it i am having a nervous breakdown…i am totally stressed
out and depressed where i am having high blood pressure
issues and frequent migraine.he had hurt me mentally as well
as emotionally.he just prove my family right of the things
they did told me about him.i have no idea what i get myself
in but i believe he uses me.he always wanted to control me
and tell me what to do and who to be friends with.we never
live together before…cause am still currently living in
Jamaica.i realize i made a mistake of marrying him cause i
was pressure under the influence of him forcing me into
marriage which i wasn’t ready and know nothing about.what
he’s doing is mental cruelty to me of torturing my image.

I also had came to find out that he had been impersonating
his other ex girlfriends online in the most discriminated
way.my older sister had talk with the local cops here but
they said we should go to the capital city of Jamaica to
report this matter of Identity Theft.I had manage to
constant the FBI in the states and they told me to contact
the embassy here and they will put me through to Bridgeport
FBI..which i haven’t done yet…cause i also call the
sheriff department in Houston Texas where my husband is
currently living and they told me they don’t take these kind
of report (Identity theft) over the phone.i had to be
physically be in the states in order to make the report or
have a family member whose in the states to call and make
the report on my behalf..so far as i can see i just keep
getting the run around…and there’s nothing i can do to
stop my husband my continuing to impersonate me.

about two weeks ago when i call him..i don’t know if it was
a confession or not but he told me he had been a female
online for 5 years..obviously he had been impersonating his
ex-s and other women online for 5 years.he also told me he
had over 10,000 pictures of people.. supposedly females who
he claims and believe that is lesbians and bi-sexual.if i
had knew this much about him..i wouldn’t had marry him to
begin with…cause all of this is just crazy.My older sister
had told me that my husband had talk to my brother-in-law
about a ex i use to date..that he wants my brother-in-law to
take him to my ex so that he can use a dildo and sex him in
the anus and kill him.with the things he say and do does
make me wonder if he’s not bi-sexual cause i can’t
understand why he would impersonate me online as someone am
not.
obviously i had married to a complete stranger.if i had know
he had been a woman online i would had not married him to
begin with.i believe and so does my family that he had
married to use me.all he wanted was my personal information
so that he can use it online to wreck my life and to gain
twisted pleasure for himself cause he’s a pervert.i wish i
had known.

i am wondering if there’s a grounds in my story to get a
marriage annulment.i would rather a marriage annulment
instead of a divorce because i don’t want no ties to this
man or to have the stigma of a divorce…even though
marriage on a whole,divorce and annulment is not something i
know much about.i wish i had enjoy my youth and not rush
into something i had no idea about.because of what my
husband had done. it had scar me mentally and emotionally.i
don’t even see how am ever gonna get over it and move on.

I just want my life back.it there’s away i can get
annulment?if so how much would it cost?what is the time
frame to get one?do i have to be separate for a period of
time before i can file for one?

 

Answer
Dear Andrenne,

What a sad story to read, and do feel a lot sympathy for you.

To my knowledge however, annulment is no longer a way to terminate of marriage, but a divorce is what should apply to your situation.

I suggest you contact the Supreme Court in Kingston, and talk to someone involved with Divorces. They will recommend you more than I would,  but do believe that divorcing might be best in abusive marriages,  you will then be free of the gentleman, here in Jamaica.

Should he had registered your marriage in Texas, you may then contact their respective marriage registrar and after explaining your situation to them may ask that you provide them with your divorce decree from Jamaica to proceed in the US in also terminating the marriage on their end, but I wouldn’t be sure about that. Try contact some free online legal aid in Texas, but also do contact our Jamaican Supreme Court for further legal advise on Divorcing him.

I do hope you will soon find  peace, and happiness in your life, and move on to a genuine and loving new relationship.

Isabelle

 

SERIOUS DISCUSSION –UPDATE!

[promoslider]

Why do Butch Lesbians feel they have to go out to prove that they are masculine or can pick up women? It is confusing because they dont like men but they dress like them, as to the Femm lesbians…they dont like men but like women who look like men?

Why is it a woman who gets oral sex from another woman isn’t considered gay because she doesn’t return the favor, or is she?

WHAT A TING WOMAN COME TO HEE


Rasbert Turner, Star Writer
Apparently the saying ‘A hungry man is an angry man’, is quite true.

A St Catherine woman who failed to cook her common-law husband’s dinner was left with several cuts and bruises allegedly inflicted by the irate suitor.

“Him use the stone to lick mi and seh yuh no done cook yet. Him den seh yu lucky mi can’t find di machete,” the woman who had bandages plastered all over her face told THE STAR at the Spanish Town Police Station on Sunday evening.

“Him kick off the pot off a fire and seh mi wi get mad so no ramp wid mi food. Him did really a gwaan bad so mi affi run out a di house,” the trembling woman continued.

She said that while escaping the wrath of the angry man, he pelted her with stones.

The woman told THE STAR that her delay in cooking was as a result of the man not providing the money.

In addition to being hungry, the man was allegedly angry at her for getting help from a man who jerked meat in the community.

The Spanish Town police received an official report on the incident from the woman. A senior policeman said that an investigation was under way.
