1 Questions to Consider: Homosexuality

2 What the World Needs to Consider get-to-know-goias-brazil.blogspot.com- 1) God s Word on this Issue:

3 Genesis 2:23-24 [23] The man said, This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.

4 Genesis 2:23-24 [24] For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh.

5 Romans 1:26-27 [26] For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural,

6 Romans 1:26-27 [27] and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.

7 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 [9] Or 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 effeminate, nor homosexuals,

8 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 [10] nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God.

9 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 [11] Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

10 1 Timothy 1:8-11 [8] But we know that the Law is good, if one uses it lawfully, [9] realizing the fact that law is not made for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers

11 1 Timothy 1:8-11 [10] and immoral men and homosexuals and kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching, [11] according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted.

12 What the World Needs to Consider get-to-know-goias-brazil.blogspot.com- 2) Sexual practices are a choice.

13 Dr. James Leslie McCary The Psychology of Human Sexuality People are not born homosexual or heterosexual, they are just born sexual. They are born with the capacity to respond sexually. However, sexual orientations are learned.

14 Gay Gene? Nathaniel S. Lehrman, former chairperson of the Task Force on Religion and Mental Health said in 2005, "Researchers now openly admit that after searching for more than 20 years, they are still unable to find the 'gay gene'" (in the Journal of American Physicians and Surgeons).

15 Born Gay? American Psychological Association (2005): "There is no consensus among scientists about the exact reasons that an individual develops a heterosexual, bisexual, gay, or lesbian orientation."

16 Born Gay? England s Royal College of Psychiatrists (April 2014): Used to say biological, now say "sexual orientation is determined by a combination of biological and postnatal environmental factors."

17 Born Gay? England s Royal College of Psychiatrists (April 2014): "It is not the case that sexual orientation is immutable or might not vary to some extent in a person's life."

18 May 2013 Summary: Eight major studies of identical twins in Australia, the U.S., and Scandinavia during the last two decades all arrive at the same conclusion: gays were not born that way.

19 May 2013 Summary: In the identical twin studies, Dr. Whitehead has been struck by how fluid and changeable sexual identity can be.

20 May 2013 Summary: The academics who work in the field are not happy with the portrayals by the media on the subject, Dr. Whitehead notes. But they prefer to stick with their academic research and not get involved in the activist side.

21 What the World Needs to Consider get-to-know-goias-brazil.blogspot.com- 2) Sexual practices are a choice.

22 What the World Needs to Consider get-to-know-goias-brazil.blogspot.com- 3) A feeling of love does not justify a sexual relationship.

23 What the World Needs to Consider get-to-know-goias-brazil.blogspot.com- 4) Saying that actions are sinful is not hate speech.

24 What Christians Need to Consider 1) God declares us all sinners.

25 James 2:11 [11] For He who said, DO NOT COMMIT ADULTERY, also said, DO NOT COMMIT MURDER. Now if you do not commit adultery, but do commit murder, you have become a transgressor of the law.

26 What Christians Need to Consider 2) Remember how Jesus treated those in sin.

27 How Jesus Treated Sinners? Kindness Value Discussion Encourage change

28 Luke 15:1-2 [1] Now all the tax collectors and the sinners were coming near Him to listen to Him. [2] Both the Pharisees and the scribes began to grumble, saying, This man receives sinners and eats with them.

29 What Christians Need to Consider 3) A Passage we need to know:

30 2 Timothy 2:24-26 [24] The Lord's bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged,

31 2 Timothy 2:24-26 [25] with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth,

32 2 Timothy 2:24-26 [26] and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, having been held captive by him to do his will.

33 What Christians Need to Consider 4) Let s have courage to stand with God.

34 Our culture needs to see Jesus on this issue! Image from:
