Sounds rather like an oxymoron to me since God never recognized homosexuality as right, but as an abomination in His eyes.
The fact that so many homosexuals say that you can't use the Bible in your argument against homosexuality because they don't recognize it as an authority is an indication that more and more people have bought the empty package that truth is relative to belief. Frankly, it doesn't matter whether someone believes something is true or not. Believing a falsehood never makes that falsehood a truth. By the same token, believing truth does not make that truth any truer. Truth is not relative to anything no matter how much one wants it to be.
The Supreme Court justice Anthony Kennedy put the scales down on the side of homosexual "rights" in the ruling about homosexual marriage. Strangely enough, it seems the reason for him siding with homosexuals is because of children:
Justice Anthony Kennedy, writing on behalf of the court (in June, 2015), said the hope of gay people intending to marry "is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right."
"Without the recognition, stability and predictability marriage offers, their children suffer the stigma of knowing their families are somehow lesser," Kennedy wrote.
Here is the biological fact that cannot be denied. An egg cannot fertilize an egg, and a sperm cannot fertilize a sperm. It takes both the male and the female to conceive a child. What a homosexual couple does to have children is to accept this naturaltruth while denying God's truth about marriage.
The judge's reasoning also assumes that homosexual couples will automatically have children, so therefore the children deserve the stability and predictability marriage offers. Really?
Where is the logic in that? Homosexual couples must at least recognize the truth that they cannot possibly have natural born offspring and must rely upon a male and female couple to propagate in order to adopt a child, or rely upon at least one person of the opposite gender to conceive a child.
This is the truth that cannot be denied: Procreation must come from two people of opposite gender. Therefore, homosexual couples cannot procreate together; it is unnatural, not natural.
Finally, many surveys have established that the divorce rate in America is around 52%. Divorce rate of Evangelical Christian believers is around 27%. But a recent survey found that homosexual marragies only last about 2 years on average. (Of course there are exceptions to this. I know a couple who have been together nearly 25 years. They lavish great love and lots of toys and clothes on children. But they recognized that adopting a child or having one by IVF was not a good thing for reasons I won't share here.)
In a study by Timothy J. Dailey, Ph. D. Senior Fellow, Center for Marriage and Family Studies that compares lifestyles of homosexual couples to married couples we find some not-so-surprising results.
Relationship duration is far shorter than heterosexual couples, promiscuity is greater, commitment is weaker, health risks are greater, and domestic violence is greater. Read the article to see the statistics.
To me this is not only an indication of how the human race is degenerating, but also how our faith in God is degenerating. We believers are accepting it--Pew survey 35% of evangelical Christians support homosexual marriages. Some Christians seem to be blasting the message that we not only hate the sin, but we hate the sinner. That is not how Jesus dealt with sinners. We have the mind of Christ and we have Him in our hearts. We should be stepping up, out, and against this kind of thinking within our ranks as well as the world. It's God talking, not me.
When a relationship breaks apart, the hurt is overwhelming. Since homosexuals do not have a majority of lasting relationships, and homosexual males tend to have eight or more sexual partners within their supposed monogamous relationships, the hurting person in the relationship could be reached.
The promiscuity makes it plain to me that homosexuals are searching for something they are not finding. There is deep dissatisfaction percolating to the top of most of their relationships.
The fight for the states to recognize their marriages tells me they are seeking permanency in their relationships. As a majority, they can't seem to get to the 48% permanency in marriage that Americans as a whole have.
The problem, as I see it, beyond the abomination that God decreed it, and that Justice Kennedy failed to recognize, is that divorce in a family is harder on children than the death of a mother or father. It is a violent act upon children's hearts. There is something very unnatural about that, too, regardless of the lifestyles of parents.
If we could just help them to see beyond any doubt that a relationship with God is far superior to any earthly relationship, then perhaps we could help them find what they have been searching so desparately for. If we could just help them see by our love that God is always true, always faithful, always forgiving, forever reliable, and loves so deeply and so lastingly that nothing can snatch us from His hand, then perhaps the scales of deceit would fall from their eyes. I know, there are many homosexuals who believe in God and who even believe they have Jesus in their hearts. The question that aches in my heart is how can a person who has Jesus in his heart commit habitual sin? I know the answer is one that many people don't want to hear.
Satan decieves people who want to be deceived. Those who think they are living a natural lifestyle that is habitual sin, in actual truth, are living in abomination. God's words, not mine. This is one of the greatest lies perpetrated by Satan in our lifetime.
