“Seek the Lord while He may be found; call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return to the Lord, and He will have compassion on him; and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:6).

There is a time when the Lord calls upon individuals, if they cease to respond, he leaves them in their wickedness.

I would be cautious about using an Old Testament passage to apply to the post Grace age. But, that is my Dispensationism speaking.

In Romans, speaking to Sodomy and Lesbianism directly, Paul says in clear terms, that they were given up “Because” of their vile affections.

Cause and effect.

No other place is such a direct statement made regarding any specific sin.

Lots of generalities, lots of repent and you are OK stuff. One very specific, very direct here.

Again, most of the Sodomites and their enablers like to go to the Old testament and ask “should we stone someone who steals bread too”.

Because they do not and are not able to address this passage in Romans.

The Holy Spirit put that one in here to make it plain to us, when we had crossed the point of no return.

We are about to do so.

I predict we will.

Then this debate will no longer even be allowed.
