This article is in no way condoning hatred or acts of harm to the homosexual community. They, just like anyone else need to be loved, prayed for, and treated in such a way as we ourselves would want someone to treat us. We all need God's grace and mercy and if it were not for His mercy towards us, we would all be doomed. But that being said, we should not call something a good and acceptable lifestyle that God Himself calls an abomination. The homosexual act, unless it's repented of, is a sin that can keep a person from entering into a true relationship with God which in turn can keep one from entering heaven. So those of us who are in Christ should speak the truth in love and do our best to love them into His Kingdom, because all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But we are freely forgiven if we repent. And I hope this article as well as the Scriptures below will do just that and open blind eyes to see.
For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh. Now the two were naked, both Adam and his wife, and were not ashamed. (Genesis 2:24-25 Sept.)
If we would take a close look at the passage above, we would see that it says that a man shall cleave unto his wife, not a man to a man or a woman to a woman. God at the very beginning instituted the marriage relationship as it should be. Also, please note what the first chapter of Geneses says concerning man: “Then God blessed them; and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it, and have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of heaven, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.” (Genesis 1:28 Sept.) This is a true God ordained marriage.
We can also see a uniqueness of the male and female relationship in that God created woman from the man. So, we can see from the very beginning that the woman and the man were designed specifically for each other, and only through this type of relationship can we have a true oneness and sexual intimacy. Also, we have the words of Jesus Himself when He spoke to the Pharisees telling them that from the beginning “God made them male and female” and that the “two shall be one flesh.” So again, we have Jesus affirming that only through a man and woman union, can we have a true one flesh relationship.
Now I know that there are some who may claim that they were born with homosexual tendencies; and to be quite frank about it, this may be true. However, all of us are born into sin, all of us have one vice or another looming over our heads. But being born with a vice doesn't give us a license to keep indulging ourselves in it. Instead, these vises should cause us to cry out to God for deliverance. So, none of us should use this as an excuse to continue in it; but instead, we should be coming to God and ask for His help. For its only God who can truly set us free from our faults.
So my question is, are you willing to give up that which you a bound to? Let’s remember that God’s word says there are some who will not come to the light because they don't want to change. For Jesus said: "And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. "For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. (John 3:19-20 NKJV) So we can see that there are those who are not will to give up their sin.
And I know from experience, that I myself at one time did not want to come to God because I wanted to do my own thing. But let us also remember that God is not a kill joy. God ways will always bring more pleasure to our lives than when we are wallowing in our sin. The pleasure that can be receive between a man and a woman is far greater than any other way. Now you may be saying that you already tried that. But have you tried it through a living relationship with God? What I mean is this, with God's Holy Spirit residing in you, all things that seem imposable before, are now possible through Him. So please turn and follow His plan and design for you, because believe me, you will not regret it.
So in closing I would like to say that God is merciful and full of grace. God wants none to parish but for all to come to repentance. So, for those who are caught up in any sin, whether it be homosexuality or some other vice, just simply confess from your heart that you have sinned before God. He will forgive you and wash you clean by the blood of Jesus Christ that was shed for you on the cross. He will give you the strength to overcome anything. And let us remember: "For if you live according to the flesh you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are sons of God. (Romans 8:13-14 NKJV)
So come to God today seeking Him with your whole heart “All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out” (John 6:37). Amen, God is so Awesome.

'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 'and the two shall become one flesh'; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. "Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate." (Mark 10:7-9 NKJV)
Pray that all would embrace the marriage that God has made
