As with any sin,homosexuality is a choice.

By now most have heard about the decision handed down on Friday by the supreme court in support of homosexual marriage,thus immediately prompting most to pick a side so to speak,either for or against.I can only imagine the emails being forwarded right now,most including that old reliable chant,you know the one “it’s not about taking sides,it’s about love” and for those saying that you are right.Love so deep & true it brought our Savior Jesus Christ from a Heavenly home to a corrupt sinful world in order to save us all.Love so deep & true He endured the brutality of Calvary.Love so deep & true 3 days later He arose for me & you.Love so deep & true it gives us the opportunity to choose & worship the only Risen Savior Jesus Christ.However when we choose God we must make good choices,we must choose obedience,obedience to God.Obedience that He has made clear & achievable with carefully laid out instructions word by word,it’s called the Holy Bible.God’s infinite wisdom provides answers for everything & anything we may encounter in life,including,here it comes,the taking of sides, remember making a choice,obedience,it’s really all the same,see Luke 12:30″ Whoever is not with me is against me,and whoever does not gather with me scatters” another words, choose a side,make a decision,seek to be obedient,three decision’s that will lead to a Heavenly Kingdom or eternal damnation.So now we see how God has explained the two, it’s up to us how we put them together, love & choice’s one deciding how we handle the other,either for God or against God,uh oh there’s that picking sides thing again.When we make the decision to live a sinful life style it is impossible to serve God while doing so,whether the sin be bumping a line on a mirror or participating in homosexual lifestyle,the sin is separating us from God.If our desire is not constantly focused on being in the center of God’s will,the desires of this world will take over whether it be idolatry,adultery and yes homosexuality.If we are constantly choosing the ways of this world rather than seeking a relationship with God He will turn us over to a reprobate mind Romans 1:28.This leads me to the decision by man to accept homosexuality as being ok when God’s word is plain & simple,homosexuality is a sin. The Bible teaches against any sexual relations except between husband & wife (man & woman) these listed scripture are just a few of many that teach us,homoseuality is a sin.Genesis 19:1-13,Leviticus 18:22; 20:13,Romans 1:26-27,again just a few of many listed through-out the Bible. Let’s remember Jesus Himself in Matthew 19:4-6 spoke of marriage,notice how Christ clearly defines marriage as being between male and female..Jesus also in Mark 7:20-23 condemn’s all forms of sexual immorality.Identified through God’d Holy word homosexuality is a sin.With that said let’s take on the “I was born this way, phrase” with that I say God doesn’t make mistakes.Know this,God does not and would not create us in a way He knows would take us further from Him rather than drawing us closer, and that my friends is what sin does,take us further from God, separating us from our Saviour.We must fight off any sinful desires realizing our strength & victory is through Jesus Christ. So we’er back to the choices and what side we stand on,it’s not Christ-like to say “if that’s who they are it’s ok with me”, or to say “just keep them away from me”the love we are commanded to have (Mark 12:32)says otherwise, we as Christians should care enough to speak up when we see someone living a life that leads to eternal hell.The time is now for us as disciples to correct & rebuke (2 Timothy 4:2)refuse to be silent make a choice to pick a side, either you will scatter or gather,IT IS A CHOICE!The love of Christ allows us to speak up in order to prayerfully show others not only the side we as Christians choose,but why we’ve chosen the side of God.As disciples of Christ, we are to be teaching,supporting & encouraging everyone that we come in contact with to choose the right side,to make the correct eternal choice,Heaven.We as Christians are at a major turning point as to how we are going to serve God,we can’t hide from it,we cannot sit quietly as others around us make the wrong choices,while resting on the old saying “that’s their problem”.I along with this ministry will continue choosing to deliver the message of Jesus Christ even when it’s not with the approval of today’s society.I must say when the verdict came down in support of homosexual marriage It was sad to see so many celebrating man’s victory while not realizing the Spiritual loss.In closing think about this; Fighting off the sins of this world is a everyday battle,a battle that can only be won when we have the armor of God on.For many people they have not realized His armor is a”one size fits all” or maybe they don’t know how to put it on.It’s up to those of us blessed enough to already be fitted, safe & sound in His armor, to show others where the rack is and if need be how to put it on,all while praying they allow Christ to keep it a snug fit.I’ve had those people in my life,those who were in constant prayer for me,praying that I too would make the “right choice”putting on the armor of God,I’m sure you have too.As we continue in prayer,remember God’s Grace is more than sufficient to save anyone.I know it for a fact,He saved me and that my friends is God’s mercy.All that I am is by His Grace and to His Glory.
