He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. - I John 4:8 NKJV
I see people posting on Facebook all the time, saying that the Bible doesn't mention anything about gay marriage. That is false. You see in Leviticus chapter 18 verses 22, it states, "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination." which means that man cannot sleep with another man like they would a woman. Also I Corinthians chapter 6 verses 9 through 10 also say, "Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God." but after long research the Bible doesn't really mentioned about gay marriage that many thinks by the words homosexuals and marriage in one verse together that gay marriage is ok, that is not true. Like I mentioned before in Leviticus where it says, "You shall not lie with a male as with a woman." that line was also referring to marriage. 'But where at in the Bible does it say that marriage should only be between a man and woman, you might ask. Well, the closest I found is in I Corinthians chapter 7 verses 2 and 3, "Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband. Let the husband render to his wife the affection due her, and likewise also the wife to her husband." in that verse, it does not say that man should have man and woman should have woman, but man should have woman and woman should have man. I'm not trying to hurt anyone by posting this; I have many friends and family members who are gay. I am posting this because this is my belief. God does not hate gays; it's just that gay marriage is not and never will be God's plan, that’s man’s plan. In my honest opinion, supporting gay marriage is like me turning my back on God the father, I just can't. This is why I cannot support gay marriage; instead I support God and his teaching that marriage is defined by man and woman alone. You see, my pastor once said, “As Christians, we are to love unto the gays. We may not agree to the way they live their lives, but we must love unto them as God has loved unto us.” That is the true Christian way. It’s not our place to condemn them; instead we must love unto them. We don’t have to agree to their gay lifestyles. Sure we may be called ‘bigots’ for not accepting them one hundred percent, but the best thing we could do is keep showing them with love. That is what God would want us to do. Again, I apologies to those that might have gotten offended by this post, this is what I believe and this is where I stand. It’s funny how offensive people get when you express your beliefs. I lost my best friend; she condemned me after she said that I had condemned her first. I condemned nobody. All the posts that I had posted on Facebook regarding homosexuals were not hate posts, but love. Yet she saw it as me condemning her. I do not hate the gay community, I may not agree to how they live their lives, but I do not hate them. I love them as God loves me.
