And I’m sure Piers Morgan was shocked, just shocked, to hear this. It offended his sensibilities terribly.

Ultimately destructive to the foundations of civilization? How many years will this destruction take? Why hasn’t mankind stamped it out yet in these thousands of years? Are we still looking for the cure? So many questions.

One of the reason it hasn’t been stamped out, especially in this country, is because our government is purposely manufacturing it. Radicals have infiltrated every possible space, including the Girl Scouts, and are actively planting the seeds that will destroy our civilization.

Cameron starred in a movie about infidelity and the damage it does to people called “Fireproof”. Most of the cast were pretty poor actors but Cameron was great and I would recommend seeing it!

Since the beginning of recorded history 'man/woman' have always fallen for deception. There is NO nation in all of recorded history that made the homo agenda as their standard continued to survive. Some just have to learn things the hard way. The US sure never became a super power of super powers because of having a homo standard. Guess put your timer on and we all shall soon find out IF we can beat the odds of time.

God rightly said "Thou shalt not commit Adultery" - the Adultery of Marriage.

When any civilization does so, it's days are numbered.

Homosexuality is obviously unnatural. A simple perusal of the male and female naked forms evokes what is natural. Tab A fits very nicely into Slot B. Even the cave men (and women) could figure that out. If homosexuality were natural, our species would have died out several millennia ago.

Adultery is a sin, but, it is NOT the unpardonable sin. Did you know that God is a divorcee, spiritually speaking. (It is Written and found in Jeremiah 3:8) God also said that homo acts are an abomination and He destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of their sex obsessed agenda. Wonder what is in store for US given our nose dive into abomination?

Yes, that is true! We can be forgiven, if we seek forgiveness,
(See Matthew 7:7 and John 14:14)

But as read in Galatians 6:7: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

We also read: “Know ye not that the unrighteousness shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor effinate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,.......shall inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)

We are warned, and we must take heed: “The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God.” (Psalm 9:17)

One more for now: “By mercy and truth iniquity is purged, and by the fear of the LORD men depart from evil.” (Proverbs 16:6)

I do not disagree. I would note that in just the few Scriptures you quoted they indicate individual sin and a nation's sin. When a nation makes it their standard to forget or rebel against the Creator that blessed and protected their nation, the whole nation suffers a heap of hurt. We are hurting and too few are able to figure out the cause of their hurt.

NOTE to Piers Morgan— I agree with Kirk Cameron. Except—where he was uncomfortable calling homosexuality a sin— I do.
The Holy Scriptures define it as “unnatural” an “abomination”
those who practice fornication are “worthy of death” unless they repent. NOwhere in the Christian system is it found where Jesus said “as long as you’re happy” for I believe Jesus would agree there is a way that seems right to a man but the end thereof id death. I love my son Piers Morgan. But I Hate the lifestyle he has chosen. It is destructive— It is everything Kirk Cameron said it was and more destructive. It matters Not that seven states have legalized same sex fraud-it is NOT marriage. And those States will be judged by a righteous judge-not some entertainer who says “as long as it makes you happy —ok” I have heard certain individuals claim they were happy when they committed murder. Is that what you would claim is “ok”?If it is Not ok to commit murder—Why is it OK to violate the laws dictated by God ,Himself elsewhere?

While I agree with his sentiment I would disagree that homosexuality is not natural. It is. It is one of the natural results of man turning away from God and his laws.

Same with adultery, fornication, idolatry, sabbath breaking, coveting and a myriad of other sins.

All of these are destructive to society

The movie was about living without God in his life, and his return to his faith which saved his marriage. The acting was very good in my opinion, I cannot think of anyone in the movie, which I have seen three times now as being “poor actor”. But, to each his own...

The moral of the movie was that God enhances our lives when we embrace his love, our lives suffer as we move away from God and involve ourselves in sinful activities. That is a truth that has always been and always will be.

That is why homosexuality is unhealthy for people and especially for a nation to make it legal for two men to “marry”, which of course they cannot even if the government says it is “legal”.

Don't you find it interesting that the Bible provides no justification in this verse for claims that homosexual behavior is uniquely sinful?

It is listed as one of several sins, given no particular prominence in the list.

Well how many times in the whole of the Bible is Sodom and Gomorrah mentioned? It is referred to at least by name 9 times in the New Testament alone.

I am quite in agreement that homosexual acts are sinful.

I just disagree that the Bible, the NT anyway, provides much support for the notion that they’re greatly more sinful than other types of sexual sin.

In my experience this is often because people feel much more comfortable denouncing sexual sins they haven’t participated in personally or aren’t tempted to engage in themselves.

For the past forty or fifty years, the leftists have been trying to force people to recognize homosexuality as normal and equal to heterosexuality. Their problem is, I doubt very few heterosexuals i.e. breeders think it’s anything other than extremely abnormal. Statistics prove that with maybe only 2 or 3% of the population homosexual. But since homosexuals gravitate to areas of cultural influence like the movies and literature, they’ve been successful making people believe their numbers are a lot higher. The fact is: homosexuality at the very least is highly abnormal. It would be interesting to have situations where normal heterosexual parents could press a button to decide whether their offspring would be hetero or homo. What button do you think they’d press?

Let me try to explain.

God gives us a list of sins: A, B, C, D, E and F. Those who practice such things will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven. This was essentially what was done in Paul’s letters to the Corinthians and to Timothy.

A great many modern Americans promptly pick out D and claim that God is particularly opposed to D and that practicing D is greatly more sinful than practicing the other sins on the list.

Can you explain how this fits with what the Scripture actually says as opposed to what we read into it?

I object not to the claim that homosexuality is a sin, but to the implicit pass given to the other sins by making homosexuality uniquely sinful.

I am not going to type all 9 times wherein the specific Sodom and Gomorrha are used... I will type the first time so one can get the idea.

Matthew 10:15 Verily I say unto you, (the you are the newly elected twelve of verse 2-4) It shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Now of course the whole chapter 10 needs be read to get the fullness of the instruction given... But Christ left no doubt that Sodom and Gomorrha would yet again be practiced. So He forewarned the individual and the nations to expect their judgment to be greater than was the judgment on the first Sodom and Gomorrha.

It really does not matter what people are comfortable in denouncing, it is what the judgment promised to the participants and the onlookers that cheer, legislate, and make like evil is good and good is evil. They are going to get theirs. To say such things is politically and even religiously incorrect, regardless of the warning in advance.

Since most leftist believe in evolution...I always bring up the point when discussing this subject that if homosexual behavior is normal and natural, why haven ‘t they evolved over the evolutionary timeframe so they can procreate and their anus developed into a sex organ rather than a egres for human waste....

Never have gotten a cogent answer.....I wonder why?

Most (I think all but one) of the references in the NT to S&G do not specifically reference their sexual sin, but rather are used to describe the severity of punishment others will receive for sins that have little or nothing sexual in nature, such as rejecting the word of Christ.

IOW, the references are used not to reinforce the idea that homosexual sin is more sinful than other types of sexual sin, but rather as an illustration of severity of punishment.

Will since all past civilizations are gone is homosexuality a cause or just a correlation? The Spartans used pedestry as a training tool and homosexuality was one of the factors that bound unit cohesion. I would have to argue your point. I do not approve of homosexuality and consider it a product of the fall. That being said Homosexuality has been involved in human civilization since man kind has been recording activities. There are those who condemn it, there are those who condemn it but participate in it and then there are those who praise it and participate in it. There are cultures that allow it, there are cultures that abhor it, and there have been cultures that flaunt homosexuality (see Spartans above, in Spartan contemporary Greek cultures if you said he has been Spartanized it was an insult). I do believe God condemn it because it is destructive to the order God created and established!

Mainly, we are not looking to reorganize society and law around homosexuality and it’s behaviors and lifestyle. Homos are free to do their thing and they should not be promoting their dysfunctional thing to other people’s children (sexually grooming them).

Heterosexual unions and families should be respected, encouraged and strengthened as that is the foundation of all successful societies. Radical leftist social engineers have the central goal to tear down the Western countries and people they despise and then refashion the targeted Nations into hell’s Marxist Utopia. They should not be given that power and influence.

I would just like to take this opportunity to express my contempt for those of you who have supported the idea of the states’ bureaucratic licensing of (hetero) marriage. Anything the government touches, it corrupts. Conservatives should be sickened by the idea of going to the state, begging permission, getting a license and paying a fee to exercise a covenant established before God. This stupid ‘gay marriage’ push, which will ultimately win in our vile court system, would never even have happened if marriage were left alone and not tied up with the state in the first place.

OK each to his/her own thinking. But, Sodom (where our modern word sodomy comes from) and Gomorrha was a specific act that brought forth a specific judgment. Every time I read those words throughout the whole of the WORD I do not think of other 'types' of sin. And what was Lot's wife's sin??? I do not recall that she participated in the perversion but she sure did not mind living within the confines of the perverted.

To me the Ten Commandments are a fairly basic set of laws. AND since Christ became the one and for all time perfect blood sacrifice, each individual has direct access to the Heavenly Father for forgiveness upon repentance. We all fall short.

Ooops - at first, I thought this was a statement from the PM of Britain!!! How naive of me...
On our “Rush” station here (WNIS) in Tidewater VA, we have a “libertarian” talkie followed by a “non-specific” talkie before Rush comes on at noon. I try not to listen before Rush but made the mistake yesterday and the dude, Dave Parker, was telling his listeners that gay “marriage” was a done deal, we oldies will die off and the new kids, more accepting of “gayness”, will get with the program and all states will allow gay “marriage”.
“Kids” like this give me hope...
OTOH, because of the “slut” controversy, the station is now running a disclaimer on Rush’s views...he’s the ONLY reason anyone tunes into the station...total gutless wonders.

I agree with you that no sin is greater than any other sin (at least in the eyes of God). Adultery, rampant in the body of Christ is sin that the Church has decided not to address. There will be accountability to God for this willful neglect to address this on-going and prolific sin.

I also believe that homosexuality is often seen as a more egregious sin because it is one in which the participants and supporters of it collectively seem to have no remorse, shame, or intention of admitting the sinfulness of it. I have yet to see an ‘Alcoholics Pride Parade’, or an ‘Adulterers United Convention’, or a ‘Larceny Association’...you get my drift? Yet ‘Gay Pride Parades’ are not only accepted but celebrated. If you've ever witnessed one, the degradation is visibly apparent.

True. You will note that the 10 do not directly address the issue of homosexuality. And the Mosaic Law itself nowhere provides any penalty for a male committing adultery or fornication (other than with a married woman).

So the NT, which does not discriminate between men and women with regard to sexual immorality, is a big ethical advance.

I don’t disagree with your point. However, I suggest that the idea of shame-free premarital heterosex has become so universally accepted there is no need to promote it.

If you believe it’s wrong, you’re the weirdo in today’s world.

You are spot on about premarital hetero-sex becoming so common place that there is no longer shame. Woe has already come and will continue for all who practice sexual immorality (HIV/AIDS, STDs, cancers, illegitimate children, poverty, etc.). The wages of sin is indeed ‘death’.

To a great extent, wealth insulates one from the initial “wages of sin” for immorality.

Poor people have no such margin for error.
