Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
In today’s world, the homosexual agenda has taken over and turned wrong into right. Television and the media have placed this sin ever before us. Worldly teen girls find it the “thing to do” nowadays. But the Bible stands firmly on what God considers an abomination.
Just what is an abomination? It’s not a word we use every day. But it’s a word that is used in 69 verses in the entire Bible: 65 verses in the Old Testament and four verses in the New Testament. I don’t know about you, teen girl, but when a word is used this much in the Bible, I pay attention to it.
Noah Webster (the man who put together the first dictionary based on words from the King James Bible) defines the word “abomination” as:
1. Extreme hatred; detestation.
2. The object of detestation, a common signification in scripture.
The way of the wicked is an abomination to the Lord. Prov 15.
3. Hence, defilement, pollution, in a physical sense, or evil doctrines and practices, which are moral defilements, idols and idolatry, are called abominations. The Jews were an abomination to the Egyptians; and the sacred animals of the Egyptians were an abomination to the Jews. The Roman army is called the abomination of desolation. Mat 24:13. In short, whatever is an object of extreme hatred, is called an abomination.
This gives you an idea as to what the word actually meant at the time the Bible was translated into the English language in the King James Bible. Today’s modern English waters down definitions but when you read what the initial definition was at that time, you begin to realize just how much God hates the sin that is called an abomination. Sit up and pay attention to it! God never changes – He’s the same as He was yesterday and will be the same in 1,000 years from now. If He finds homosexuality a sin in Leviticus, it is a sin in the New Testament and will be a sin in 500 years from now.
According to Noah Webster’s definition, God detests and has an extreme hatred for the sin which involves lying with mankind as one lays with womankind. There’s no mincing words here, teen girl. Modern Christianity will have you believe that a homosexual can be saved and still be a homosexual. If that person is truly saved, they will fall under extreme conviction and will remove themselves from that temptation.
God considers homosexuality a sin – period! No if’s, and’s or but’s about it. He loves the sinner and He died for sinners such as this.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
Notice the last sentence: “And such were some of you:” – the Christians who used to be abusers of themselves with mankind and effeminate, were no longer this way. Jesus saves the sinner from their sin. He loves them! But they do not stay in their sin. There is a change in their hearts when they get saved.
So back to what the world believes. The world will believe the opposite of what the born-again Christian believes. The world calls evil good and the Christian calls it evil, period! Where do you stand, teen girl? Before you accept the sin of homosexuality into your life, or accept a friend who is a practicing homosexual as a friend, dig deeply into God’s Word and see what He says. They will not inherit the kingdom of God! Plain and simple.
In closing, before you think you’re off the hook because you’re not a homosexual, look at the rest of the sins listed in verses 9-11. There are a few there that you may be guilty of as well. It is best to look at your own heart and make sure you are right with God before you begin to point a finger. Amen?
