Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

Are Homosexual Relationships based on Love?

I have repeatedly heard from homosexuals insisting their relationships are based on love; I find just the opposite in God's word...
We will start with Matthew 15:19-20 to understand where this sexual sin is birthed, "for out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies: these are the things which defile a man." These words are spoken by the Lord Jesus Himself as to what defiles, we focus on the origin...the heart. In the original language heart means 'thoughts, feelings, the mind; the seat of everything: of the soul so far as it is affected and stirred in a bad or good way, the soul/mind as the seat of sensibilities, affections, emotions, desires, appetites, passions'. This is evidence sin is birthed in the thoughtlife. We now focus on fornication, which translates 'adultery, homosexuality, lesbianism, illicit sexual intercourse'. In Christ's own words, homosexuality and lesbianism are a defiling act which means 'unclean, pollute, to make profane, render unhallowed'. If homosexuality and lesbianism are defiling, how can it be called love?
The clearest picture on what homosexuality is based on is found in Romans 1:26-27, 'for this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions: for their women exchanged natural (produced by nature, inborn) relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed (to set on fire, to be kindled) with passion (lust-excitement of the mind, a longing after, desire, craving for) for another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error'. Here we see what happens when sinners suppress the truth of God's word, He lets men go headlong into sin, turning them over to what they desire most by not restraining their unbridled passions: the result is moral decay. What comes natural has now been shunned for what is contrary to nature, what was instilled at birth has now been exchanged for a forbidden lust. So if at birth, we were instilled with what comes natural, how is it the homosexual claims they were born that way? The only answer is they choose to follow their own lustful desires, which is what God's word proclaims.
Here lies the key to what homosexuals base their relationships on...lust. Their relationships are fueled by a burning desire that consumes and drives them. This is the reason for turbulence in these types of relationships, they are like wild animals who stalk their prey, launch their attack and conquer. Lust is never satisfied, it must be fed over and over and over; it does not care who or what must be conquered to satisfy. It does not feel love for its prey, it only thinks of 'self' and consumes the homosexual to repeatedly feed his/her craving. Love, on the other hand, is giving and is made manifest in doing for others, especially husbands towards wives and wives towards husbands. The intimacy of love between a husband and wife is one of giving, not taking; to please another and not self: it is filled with a trusting heart as well as tenderness and faithfulness. Love is God's gift between a man and a woman, lust is a result of rejecting true love with a desire to only please 'self'.

No Homosexual Relationships are not built on love, they are built on the false foundation of lust and are in rebellion against God. homosexual "love" is an oxymoron, a paradox.

Before I was saved and was caught up in the homosexual lifestyle I used to think homosexuality was based on love. However, I was not going by the proper building codes to begin with---The foundation I laid by myself was faulty(Same sex)---"For no one can lay any foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ"-1Cr 3:11. God condemns homosexuality and I was trying to live my life molding, shaping and fitting the way I loved people to fit and be okay and acceptable by God like trying to fit a square peg in a circle.

We have to come to terms the truth.If we don't we are cowards. The TRUTH ---what God has said and whether we ignore it or accept it,always remains the truth regardless. God has spoken and no amount of manipulation of his word changes anything but that we are liars, thieves, murderers at heart and adulterers lusting our way through flat-lining the bible to get our own way

Lust always has this insatiable appetite that has to be fed and satisfies you----- ONLY temporarily

If you compare Love to lust and are honest by coming to terms with SELF and asking God to show you your true heart, you will find that homosexuality is not love at all. -- 1 Corinthians Chapter 13 has that list if anyone dare to compare.

First and most importantly though, is the fact that God is love--1 John 4:8 and until a person is saved that person no matter if they are homosexual, heterosexual -- does not know true love. God's love-Agape is not human natural love but a supernatural love. WE can love people with the natural love that God has made known to us but it's still not God's love. God's love is given to us the moment we are born again as a Gift--Jesus when our sins are washed away by the blood Jesus shed. Then God sheds abroad in our hearts HIS LOVE. "For God demonstrated his {OWN love} for us in this that while we were still his enemies, Christ died for us"--Romans 5:8
God's love is not and cannot be produced in any human being no matter how hard we try and no matter how much "good" we do. God ALONE is good so anything we do outside of Christ is like dung to him. Sure we have our human natural love but we are incapable of knowing God's love which is true love.

Linda,
thank you for your response, may God use it as a powerful testimony to any that are in bondage to this sin. I praise Him for saving me and you from what we both deserve...eternal wrath. Christ has been sacrificed for sin and we have been reconciled back to our Father because of His finished work on the cross. Let us lift up our voices and praise our great God and Father!

Love you sister,
lyn
