The Bible’s Teaching on Homosexuality – Romans 1:18-32 – The apostle Paul explains that humanity has rejected God, exchanging the truth about Him and the things He created for a lie. While describing the sinful “exchanges” men and women have made, Paul uses the term para physin, which means “unnatural” or “against nature.”
Homosexuality is unnatural because it is a departure from God’s design for sexuality. According to the passage, homosexuality is also a consequence of humanity suppressing God’s truth and refusing to honor Him. Other verses, including 1 Corinthians 6:9 and 1 Timothy 1:10, reinforce this teaching.
Father, we know that we are a nation on the “precipice of judgment.” The very discussion of these things, and efforts to force men to deny their conscience, shows how very far we have come. Is this not what the communists are doing?
Lord, please stand up for your people. Despite the split within the Senate, Lord, intervene! Prevent this bill from passage and turn the tide.
May our prayers turn the battle with the principalities and powers at the gates. With you is an army of intercessors and at least 10 righteous men and women in the land. It is time for you to act, Lord, your law is being broken. Take pity upon your people!
The full scripture reads: “Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.”
It’s funny though how they never quote the “stone the adulterers” and “thieves in the temple” passages
Since 1974 when it was first introduced gays and lesbians have been the focus of and have fought tooth and nail to get the Equality Act or some incarnation of it passed in the United States Senate. Yet somehow the ACLU managed to leave both groups out of a tweet supporting itafter its most recent passage in the House of Representatives.
We have reached out to the ACLU for comment.
At the time of this posting we have received none.
A few weeks ago we reported that the Biden administration backpaddled on the LGBT Equality Act and the promise Joe Biden made during his election campaign that the Equality Act would be one of the first bills that would be passed and signed into law during his first 100 days because now they fear that they don’t have enough votes in the Senate to pass the bill with the razor thin new Democratic majority.
“I’m optimistic about it because I do think we will get strong bipartisan support in the House and in the Senate. We passed it in the last Congress. No success in the Senate. It went to Mitch McConnell’s graveyard, the ‘grim reaper,’” ” Pelosi said
Pelosi called the Equality Act “an early priority for us.” “And again, it’s about ending discrimination,” she added.
Now almost 50 years later the Equality Act will be introduced once again in the hopes of it becoming law. Will this finally be the time that it passes both the House and the Senate and makes it to Joe Biden’s desk to sign?
As the Equality Act (H.R. 5) just passed in the U.S. House of Representatives, I remind you, that this is an all-out assault on parental rights, on the family, and on the millions of people of faith in this country. The legislation goes far beyond just quarantining faith behind the four walls of a house of worship.
This act quarantines faith within your mind and says that’s where it must stay. It creates a world that punishes those who exercise their freedom to believe and live according to those beliefs. No institution or person of faith, be it a school, church, synagogue, mosque, business, or non-profit will escape its Orwellian reach.
The Religious Freedom Restoration Act will be committed to the “memory hole.” We will then experience a catastrophic loss of religious freedom in America, and, as a result, every American, those who believe and do not believe, will suffer the consequences. The American people must continue to speak with great force and clarity in opposition to the “In-equality” Act.
The U.S. House passed 236-173 HR 5, misnamed the “Equality Act,” with eight Republicans voting in favor and no Democrats voting against it. The eight Republicans are: Susan Brooks (IN-05); Brian Fitzpatrick (PA-01); Elise Stefanik (NY-21); Greg Walden (OR-02); John Katko (NY-24); Mario Diaz-Balart (FL-25); Tom Reed (NY-23); and Will Hurd (TX-23).
“No one who voted for the misnamed ‘Equality Act’ deserves to serve in Congress,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “This bill destroys the fundamental religious freedom on which America was founded.”
“This bill is unpatriotic and dangerous. The misnamed ‘Equality Act’ has nothing to do with equality and is the most serious threat to life and liberty ever proposed by Congress. This bill needs to be stopped in the Senate. If this bill becomes law, the consequences are staggering,” said Staver.
And last but not least we have a crazy rant from the “Christian Crypt Keeper” himself Pat Robertson of the 700 Club himself who claims that God will “vomit” & “get rid of” America if the Equality Act passes into law.
This is a devastating blow to religious freedom and to the sanctity of America.
If you want to bring the judgment of God on this nation, you just keep this stuff up. You know, I was reading in Leviticus where it said, ‘Because of these things, the land will vomit you out.’ Vomit you out. I think God will say, ‘I’ve had it with America, if you do this kind of stuff, I’m going to get rid of you as a nation.
There is plenty of stuff that is going on, when you look at the potential of atomic war, when you look at the potential of a solar strike or something on our grid, you could go down the line of devastation that could happen to our nation. We don’t want that. We want the blessing of God, not the curse of God
With a vote on the Equality Act in the U.S. House expected on Friday, a senior administration official indicated exclusively to the Washington Blade that President Trump opposes the bill.
“The Trump administration absolutely opposes discrimination of any kind and supports the equal treatment of all; however, this bill in its current form is filled with poison pills that threaten to undermine parental and conscience rights,” the senior administration official said via email.
More details about Trump’s position on the Equality Act may come soon from the White House, which traditionally issues a Statement of Administration Policy when legislation comes to the floor of either chamber of Congress.
Is anyone really shocked by this?
So it looks like no matter even if the Republican controlled Senate were able to pass it trump would never sign it.
This is just one more reason why the 2020 election and taking the Senate and kicking Trump out of the White House is so very important.
Via press release from FRC hate group leader Tony Perkins:
The Democrats, who won control of the House of Representatives, voted to elect Nancy Pelosi as Speaker. The liberal Democratic party leader will be second in succession to the President, after Vice President Mike Pence.
Pelosi has a reputation for toughness. Despite the checks and balances of a 53-seat Republican majority in the Senate and President Trump’s veto power, Pelosi will still have a great deal of power. In fact, Pelosi promised back in October that the introduction and passage of the Equality Act that was introduced in 2018 with 198 co-sponsors (which included two Republicans) would be a top priority in 2019 and would be introduced early.
The Equality Act would amend the 1964 Civil Rights Act to include “sex,” “sexual orientation,” and “gender identity” among expressly-recognized “non-discrimination” categories in “public accommodations,” require employers with 15 or more employees to recognize the claimed “gender identity” of those who identify as transgender, and require employers to allow those who identify as transgender to “access” opposite-sex restrooms, locker rooms, and dressing rooms.
Father, please open the eyes of all Americans to understand that religious liberty, which our original 13 states demanded be included as our first freedom in the Bill of Rights, must be honored above behavior which is immoral. Lord, expose the underlying intent of this effort — to punish Christians and others with a biblical view of marriage and human sexuality, and so to set a precedent from which to expand their persecutions under the guise of law. Deliver us, O God! (Ex 20:3; Ps 86:6-10; Dan 3:16-18; 6:10; Mt 5:10-12; Gal 5:1,13; Eph 4:1-6; Jude 3-25)
The only 2 GOP sponsors will not be returning to Congress in January and the LGBTEA has little to no chance of becoming law with the Senate being controlled by the GOP and with Trump as president.
