Romand 1:18-32 - God's Wrath on Unrighteousness
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,Gay and lesbian marriages have been sanctioned in many countries and the recent appeal in California, USA, to uphold the sanctity of marriage and to reject same-sex marriages was turned down by the US Appeal Court. So, where does that leave normal marriage (between a man and a woman)? The Bible is very clear here - that God sanctified the marriage union between a man and a woman; He had never blessed any same-sex marriages; in fact if you read Romans 1:26-27 (refer passage of scriptures above) you will understand that the Lord condemns these lewd actions and has allowed their actions to bring to fruition what the actions deserve.
19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,
21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened.
22 Professing to be wise, they became fools,
23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four- footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting;
29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil- mindedness; they are whisperers,
30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful;
32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
The entire HIV disease was started as a result of these unnatural relationships and one should never blame God for that. We need to remember that there are consequences for every action that we take; when we do wrong, there will be consequences and punishments but when we do the right things, there will be blessings.
Likewise, if one were to reject the salvation plan of God and not believe on the finished work of Christ Jesus on the cross, then that person will have to bear the consequences and end up in the pit of fire (hell) when he/she dies. However, should one embraces the salvation offered by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, he/she will enter into the blessings reserved for sons and daughters of the Most High God.
In the End Times (our current era), the Bible tells us that there will be much corruption in man's behavior. May it be found that you are NOT among those who are described in the passage above but that you are numbered among the saints, those who are called the children of the Lord.
