I was disappointed but not surprised when President Obama came out in favor of same sex marriage. Despite his proclaimations of his Christian faith the Bible’s teachings rarely seem to guide his policy decisions. The Bible clearly teaches that homosexual acts are sinful. In no way shape or form should a homosexual relationship be considered equal to the God ordained relationship of one man and one woman in marriage. We often hear that when a person has a homosexual relationship they are just being true to who they are. This thinking is ridiculous. Most married men would acknowledge that they are attracted to woman besides their wives, even that they desire to have sex with some of those women. However, if they did commit adultery that would not be an example of “being true to who they are.” Instead it would simply be giving in to their sinful desires. Those who struggle with homosexual desires must not excuse homosexual behavior but repent of their sinful lust and walk in holiness. The person who struggles with homosexual temptation must remain celebate. Maybe God will change their desires eventually, maybe He won’t. The call to holiness is still the same. Don’t be fooled by the rhetoric. Don’t be intimidated when you’re called judgmental. God has spoken about homosexuality and we should listen.
