Homosexuality is a Tragic Mistake and Erring in the Way of Life as GOD Made Us


 Homosexuality:  A Tragic Mistake / Error  / A Straying Away From the Divine Path

   The Bible is VERY clear and explicit: Homosexuality is an abomination, a great perversity of how GOD has designed human sexuality.  For it says,
“And with a male, you shall not lie, as one lies with a woman,
– Leviticus 19:22

"There shall be no harlot 
[one who has sexual relations outside the marriage relationship]
among Israel's daughters,
nor shall there be a homosexual among the sons of Israel."  
-- Deuteronomy 23:17

The Babylonian Talmud in the Book of Vows, under the Order of Women, defines TOEBA, the Hebrew word for "abomination":
        “What is TOEBA?  Toeh Ata Ba / You are erring in this Way.”   
-- Nedarim 51a

The Central Biblical Command in the Torah's 613 negative and Positive Commandments is "You shall walk in the Divine Path".   Clearly, if you are erring from the Divine Path, such as in committing abomination, you most certainly are not walking in the Divine Path. 

The Hebrew word TOEBA translates as Abomination, and is used 117 times in the Old Testament  / the Tanakh.  The following and pursuing after of Toeba in Scripture can also be argued to be a form of practicing detestable idolatry.  Toeba comes from a three letter root word of ta'a (Tav-Ayin-He) which means a wandering error by a mental, physical, or spiritual drunkenness that finds its motivation in wickedness.  In the Pilpel  (Tav-Ayin-Ayin) it is translated as deceive, and in the Hithpalpel it is translated as misuse.   Therefore, homosexuality is a mental - physical - spiritual error that is as a mental and spiritual illness or insanity that deceives those engaged in the practice and misuse of their bodies and souls. 

Even Homosexual (Pseudo-Christian) Publications Admit They Practice Something Condemned in Scripture

I think I can give address this issue in brief in part by citing one of the homosexuals who have stained the honor of Christ, and dares with other homosexuals to unrepentantly wear the cloth in the United Methodist Church. In the summer of 1998, the United Methodist Church in its California-Pacific Conference passed out as required reading to its attendees, “Reconciled Through God’s Love: The Reconciling Point of View”  Encino, CA: A Matter of Justice Press, June 1998. 

On page 24, Dr. Walter Wink, a prominent United Methodist homosexual advocate admitted:
 “Where the Bible mentions homosexual behavior at all, it clearly condemns it.  I freely grant that. 
  The issue is precisely whether that BIBLICAL JUDGMENT IS CORRECT.”  (Emphasis mine).  

Again, the clear and unmistakeable admission:

 “Where the Bible mentions homosexual behavior at all, it clearly condemns it.  I freely grant that."

There are no is, ands, or buts, about this issue.  Clearly, the acknowledgement is there; however, the homosexual depends also on having time to snow the person engaging the issue with a disengaging the issue, in which GOD who changes not, somehow makes exceptions for them because times have changed, when it is the proclivity to do or not do in the nature of a man, which is timeless, that forbids the alteration of the pattern GOD has set down for all time.  

 When we look at the LORD Jesus in the Gospels, He is spiritually the same as he was (Malachi 3:6) and He will always have the same personality in all of Time, past - present -future (Hebrews 13:8).  If we read Scripture after this fashion, in which those separate are like those few of the nations who besought His healing and intercession in the Gospels and the perceived aloofness or willingness to be set apart from them, we see His personality in the Old Testament.  When Jesus makes a whip and gets angry in the Temple at the thieves and robbers of His people making spoil of them for their attempting to practice Fidelity to GOD, Jesus also demonstrates the same personality traits we see of Him as the Savior - the LORD - whether we read this in Isaiah 43:3,15 or anywhere else throughout the Old Testament.  Therefore, on the very basis of even a beginning premise of acceptance, those who practice or advocate on behalf of homosexuality, already have grievously erred.  GOD has rejected it, and calls all sinners to realize the state of their self-destructive behavior, believe into Him fully, and come to repentance, leaving the destructive and damning behaviors while entering into eternal Salvation in and through Christ Jesus by the free (without money or price) and easy (as easy as but speaking a few words upon the lips or from the heart if speech is prevented) act of faith and confession with true repentance to turn and come to Christ in one's heart away from sin.  That is all it takes: true faith, truthful confession even if you are not 100% in the doing you are inclined that way, and the desire to repent with  your act of confession from the heart.  

By Faith, we come to the Cross in and through Time no matter where in Time we are; for it is at the Cross, through Faith and Confession from where we are in to now to where instantaneously at the Cross we send our sins, to that GOD-made one central moment in eternity -- and central to humanity for all time  -- Christ paid for our sins.   For it is there at the Cross that Jesus / Yeshua  takes all our sins and washes them under the blood of He Himself, who without sin, took on the form of a man to redeem us, and we are rendered spiritually clean.    

We are thereby, through genuine faith into Jesus, and what He did at the Cross, thereby reconciled to GOD, for GOD the Father hath made His only begotten Son Jesus Christ to be sin for us, He who knew no sin; in order that we might be made the righteousness of GOD in Him (2 Corinthians 5:21).  And this being so, we are to be like Christ, and conform to His design; and His design and Command is to NOT be homosexual, nor to commit other sexual sins, such as conjugal relations outside the lone living marriage covenant spouse relationship. 

But getting to the egregious error and propaganda of Satan in  “Reconciled Through God’s Love: The Reconciling Point of View”  Encino, CA: A Matter of Justice Press, June 1998.
On page 17, Dr. Wink states: 
“The real issue here, then, is NOT simply HOMOSEXUALITY, BUT HOW SCRIPTURE INFORMS OUR LIVES TODAY.”  (emphasis mine)

And in spite of admitting that the Bible HAS a sexual ethic that condemns homosexuality 2 pages later on page 24 (as cited above); on page 22, Dr. Wink clearly then lies to himself and everyone else in stating the fiction of Progressivism that:
 “The crux of the matter…is simply THAT THE BIBLE HAS NO SEXUAL ETHIC.”    

No sexual ethic?  The forbidding of Adultery is but one of many sexual ethics of the Bible that I can raise to counter this canard of Dr. Wink's.  

The 10 Commandments does ipso facto include and condemn homosexuality in generality
       In Mark 10:19, it was Peter's testimony to Mark that not committing Adultery,  not having conjugal sex with another man’s wife, was the very first commandment Jesus addressed…referring back to what we MUST define as being a sexual ethic of and in the 10 commandments.

Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery, Do not kill, Do not steal, Do not bear false witness, Defraud not, Honour thy father and mother.
Mark 10:19

Jesus also took this same sexual ethic to a whole higher level, when he also stated:

27 Ye have heard that it was said by them of old time, Thou shalt not commit adultery:
28 But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart.
Matthew 5:27-28

Following upon this, I would argue that homosexuality is also effectually covered in the 10 Commandments   and forbidden.  

When two people marry in a Christian ceremony, as hundreds of millions of unbelievers also know, they are told of the passage in Genesis 2:18,21-24

18 And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

21 And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
22 And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
23 And Adam 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.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

In effect, by committing the conjugal act of adultery, the adulterer has unknowingly engaged in an act of spiritual homosexuality as well.  And it is for this reason that adultery is specifically to be a rejected act, and confirmed as rejected because it also involves coveting and stealing that which belongs to another, violating two more of the 10 Commandments.  

 "Thou shalt NOT commit adultery." (Exodus 20:14  therefore encompasses both the approved conjugal relationship between male and female and warns that it must not be misapplied to those to whom that sexual ethic is forbidden, male or female, in whatever context outside that which is approved.  In other words, that conjugal relationship outside that of a man and a woman joined together in marriage.  And because Adam had only one rib removed, and one wife, that example from our first Father and Mother of all humanity is the example and pattern that we should follow...having one spouse (not multiple spouses and marriages of convenience, which in itself, also constitutes adultery if the other marriage partners are still living). 

Further, in the 10th Commandment of Exodus 20:17, we see repetitious and overlapping commands that by intent and design include homosexuality as well as adultery and bestiality in its primary intent of "covetousness".  Thus, by interpretation we can judge that the sins of adultery  is like a slippery slope, which slips into the degradation and lower / baser level of homosexuality.  which in itself then slips into the degradation of bestiality.  In effect the combination of Adultery and Covetousness both begin and end with misplaced desires against GOD's design of humanity and nature, and leads to certain damnation and rejection by GOD. 

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house - - addresses envy and covetousness, and denies the concept of forceful wealth redistribution as Marxist Communism demands we do to our neighbors before they of Marxist Communism laughingly or spitefully then do to us.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's wife -- addresses adultery and masculine spiritual homosexuality a second time, as well as female homosexuality, envy and covetousness.

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's manservant -- addresses homosexuality as well as envy and covetousness, and also any act of adultery on the part of the wife with the slave (remember Potiphar's wife desiring sex with Joseph here). 

 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's ox, nor his ass, nor anything that is thy neighbor's  -- addresses covetousness primarily, but would include those who would lead such an animal into a mire and get it stuck so they would engage in bestiality. 

Therefore, more is covered in the 10 Commandments than is generally taught, because most people are too complacent when it comes to being Biblically literate.  And as I have demonstrated...yes, homosexuality is covered in generality as forbidden when we adhere to the 10 Commandments given Moses upon Mount Horeb / Sinai by the LORD.

 "The whole purpose of the [10] Commandments is to purify and unite humanity"  Tanhuma Shmini 65b

And that includes a call to be purified in a restoration relationship with GOD and to cease from adultery, fornication, greed, thievery, criminal murder, and not bearing false witness as well as ceasing from the error of homosexuality, for those to whom this last sin applies.  

In brief, from a Biblical point of view, any political or social acceptance of homosexual practice is wrong; and we need to teach our next generations the correct political correctness in GOD's eyes, rather than the many and diverse  base errors of man's wayward version of political correctness or Liberalism which will most assuredly damn their eternal souls to hell once they depart the land of the living.   

 But go ye and learn what that meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. 
Matthew 9:13

And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Matthew 11:6

11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.
12 How think ye? if a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them be gone astray, doth he not leave the ninety and nine, and goeth into the mountains, and seeketh that which is gone astray?
13 And if so be that he find it, verily I say unto you, he rejoiceth more of that sheep, than of the ninety and nine which went not astray.
Matthew 18:11-13
