If you are a disciple of Christ the title to this post is a no brainer. God hates sin. For those of us who have studied Scripture we know you don’t have to read far before a call to repentance is made. Or a warning of the consequences of sin. Even in studying the prophecies of the end a description of men’s sinful actions and God’s call of repentance is made.
Today as many already know. The Supreme Court of the United States has decreed that those who wish to marry the same sex are free to do as they wish. This is sin. The Bible tells us so. And we are called to repent of it if we are involved in homosexual relationships.
We cannot continue in open or hidden unrepentant sin if we say we are of Christ and we cannot continue in it if we are not of Christ and expect no repercussions of these actions. What repercussions? Judgement from God. Not from man. But from the Lord Almighty Himself. For Scripture says
Vengeance is Mine, and recompense;
Their foot shall slip in due time;
For the day of their calamity is at hand,
And the things to come hasten upon them.’ (Deut. 32:35)
We as Disciples of the Lord need not worry about judging the world. For the Lord will judge those who are in sin. We are called to preach truth. God’s truth so that those who are bound in their sin may find their need of repentance and follow the Lord in truth and righteousness.
Let us not just preach against the sin of homosexuality but of all sin. For there is much sin in this world. Be it that of liars, cheaters, worshippers of celebrities and other idols, murderers and all manner of sexual deviants. There is divorce, cheating on spouses, coveting each neighbors belongings.
12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”
14 Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie. (Rev. 22:12-15)
But there is hope in Christ
16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”
17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely. (Rev. 22:16-17)
