Turning the World Upside Down - Part 1

This article has been updated and compiled into the book, "Turning the World Upside Down" The Spirit of Homosexuality and the Last Days"

Some may ask, "If you acknowledge that homosexuality is not the only sin, then why do you speak so much about it?" The answer is because many people do not realize the connection between homosexuality and Satan's plan for mankind. So, we will address this connection - in depth - in a series of posts starting with "An Upside Down Message".

An Upside Down Message

"Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews: and Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures, opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.

And some of them believed, and consorted with Paul and Silas; and of the devout Greeks a great multitude, and of the chief women not a few. But the Jews which believed not, moved with envy, took unto them certain lewd fellows of the baser sort, and gathered a company, and set all the city on an uproar, and assaulted the house of Jason, and sought to bring them out to the people.

And when they found them not, they drew Jason and certain brethren unto the rulers of the city, crying, These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also; whom Jason hath received: and these all do contrary to the decrees of Caesar, saying that there is another king, one Jesus." Acts 17:1-7

Committed, Loving Relationships

There are those who would say that homosexuality is not a sin. I will address the most common defenses of this point that I have seen.
  1. The Bible does not address consensual, committed, loving relationships between homosexuals.

    It does.  The Bible says that all such sex acts are an forbidden. 

    There are people who love, have consented to, and are committed to living in what God calls an abomination, but that doesn't change what God has said. The way you feel about a sinful act does not make the act acceptable to God.

    "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient." Romans 1:26-28
