During Sunday Nights’ Grammy Awards, a group of artists began singing & rapping a song that led into a Gay wedding ceremony. Knowing that the Bible – God’s Revelation to Mankind of Himself, His Heart, His Will & Eternal Plan for Man – clearly declares that homosexuality is Sin (Sin that damns one’s soul & body to the Eternal Fires of Hell for all Eternity), the rapper made the following statement in an attempt to claim that the Bible’s Revelation is invalid: “paraphrasing a book that is 3,500-years-old.” This of course is a reference to the first 5 books of the Bible called the Pentateuch which God “Breathed” (2 Tim. 3:16) out of His Heart & Mind and sent to Mankind through Moses (2 Peter 1:20-21). In addition to the historical record of God’s Judgment upon & Destruction of the cities of Sodom & Gomorrah for their sin of homosexuality, I’m sure the rapper was also referring to this passage – note this passage is not “paraphrased” but translated directly from the original Hebrew text into English:
Leviticus 20:13 (NKJV)
13If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.
It’s pretty plain & clear isn’t it? You see, in the Bible, God said what He meant & meant what He said!
The New Testament also says plainly & clearly that homosexuality is Sin and will damn one’s soul & body to Hell:
Romans 1:26-27, 32 (NIV)
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.
27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
(By the way, that 2nd video that emerged of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil Roberson that had everybody in an uproar, was him simply quoting word-for-word the 1st Chapter of the Book of Romans from the Bible – everyone who objected to what Phil said, wasn’t objecting to Phil, but objecting to God! God have Mercy on your soul! Wake up America p quit showing your IGNORANCE! Read the Bible!)
By the Grammy’s declaring that it’s “OK to be Gay” upon the basis that the Bible is an invalid Authority when it comes to Truth, God & Mankind’s obligations to God and to one another, The Grammy’s Sunday Night were in essence “Giving God The Finger!”
Also, by condoning & promoting the Sin of Homosexuality, the Grammy’s were openly declaring the Music Industries hatred of Gays! That’s absolutely the truth! If another fellow human being is caught up in a Sin that is both destroying their life in this world and damning their soul & body to Hell in the world to come, and you do nothing to try to stop them & help them get free of that self-destructive Sin; in fact, you condone & promote that Sin, telling them that it is OK – you thereby declare loudly & clearly that you could care less about them! You are even declaring an abject hatred of them, because you know what they are doing is destroying their lives, yet you tell them, “keep right on doing what you are doing,” knowing full well they will live a unfulfilled miserable life here on Earth and die and go to Hell – if you don’t care whether or not someone goes to Hell then you obviously HATE them!
Love always tells the Truth in order to help Save a soul from death, because Love CARES about the person’s well-being in this world and in the life to come. Jesus declares:
Revelation 3:19-20 (NKJV)
19As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent.
20Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.
By the way, in closing, Homosexuality isn’t the ONLY Sin that damns your soul & body to Hell – so does the Sin of Fornication = Sex before Marriage; also the Sin of Adultery = Sex after Marriage with anyone other than your Spouse of the opposite sex; so do the Sins of Stealing & Coveting what belongs to someone else & Idolatry (false religions) & Witchcraft & taking God’s Name in vain, etc., etc.; and every one of us have committed multiple numbers of these Sins! But Thanks be to God who Sent His Only Begotten Son Jesus the Christ (Messiah) into the world to SAVE SINNERS! (1 Tim. 1:15).
Jesus Christ SAVED YOU by dying for YOUR SINS in your place, and by defeating Death on YOUR BEHALF by rising from the Dead and Ascending in His Human Body up to Heaven, where He is Seated at the Right Hand of god on YOUR BEHALF! The Greatest Sin of All therefore is NOT to Believe in, Love & Serve Your Lord & Savior Jesus Christ! Repent of your Sins, Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, Call upon Him to Forgive You & Save You from your Sins Right Here & Right Now, and HE WILL SAVE YOU!
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (NKJV)
9Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
11And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
