“Because they do this, God has given them over to shameful passions. Even the women pervert the natural use of their sex by unnatural acts. In the same way the men give up natural sexual relations with women and burn with passion for each other. Men do shameful things with each other, and as a result they bring upon themselves the punishment they deserve for their wrongdoing (Romans 1:26-27).”
As I watched the morning news, I witnessed the LGBT community in the United States celebrating their latest triumph. The US Supreme Court ruling in favor of same-sex marriage just made a historical landmark for gay rights activists.
The significance of this ruling is enormous. For many years, States are conducting their own way how to handle same-sex issues and it is their state court that does the deciding.
But this latest news made by the Supreme Court – the highest court of the land – gives State courts the freedom to make their own decision when it comes to same sex marriages. Thus, California can still continue to have court decisions in favor for same sex marriages.
Now, let us go back to our question: What is so bad about homosexuality?
The Bible is consistent with its stand against homosexuality and related perversion of the sacred use of sex.
But today, we see the United States continues to slide down the slippery slope of moral degradation. They want to take God away from the picture and this is the reason that no matter how you look at homosexuality without God’s perspective, it will always triumph in every court!
Homosexuality is bad simply because it is a SIN.
Sin leads to death.
Homosexuality leads to the perversion of the basic unit of society, the family. Homosexuality is bad because it leads to heartbreaks, sadness, diseases, illnesses, and many others – the same way how other types of sin can cause human suffering.
Statistics show that the highest incidence of Sexually Transmitted Infection is among those who practice homosexuality and billions of dollars are being spent for the prevention and treatment of STI which can be prevented if only people only have sex within marriage – absolutely free or no additional cost.
Homosexuality is against the intention and purpose of God for human beings. God sets the standard for us to follow so that we can live happier in this life. Some homosexual people might attest that they are “happy”… but they could have been happier if they followed God.
A disclaimer: homosexuality is not the worst sin ever but it is still a sin nevertheless and a sin that needs to be repented of. It does not take a genius to see the negative effects of homosexuality.
As we watch more news favoring homosexuality, we will see a society that gets worse and worse. Do not be deceived: sin will lead to corruption and the destabilization of civilization.
Once the family unit is attacked, then we are seeing the breakdown of the basic unit of the society.
