Posted on 07/26/2008 9:19:38 AM PDT by marbren
I am a born-again Christian, having come to faith 10 years ago when I admitted to Christ I was a sinner, believed that Christ is God's Son and that He died for me and rose again, and choosing to live my life with Him as my Savior. I have a problem with your response to the homosexual question. You write that homosexuals do not go to heaven. If homosexuals do not go to heaven, then neither do boasters, adulterers, self-centered people, thieves, liars, or anyone for that matter.
You write that "So, you see, there is hope for anyone, homosexual, adulterer, drunkard, etc., to become one of God's family. But when a person does become a believer, the homosexuality ends." I'd like to examine the last of those two sentences...You say that when a person becomes a believer, the homosexuality ends. I would pose this question to you...When a prideful person becomes a believer, does his pride end? When a selfish person becomes a believer, does his selfishness end? When a liar becomes a believer do his lies end?
Thanks for these thoughts. I do agree with you in one sense. However, I'm trying also to work with the biblical language. The Bible states that homosexuals do not go to heaven, in a variety of ways and passages. What that means is that a person who is a believer is really entirely different, including the way he thinks of himself. Many religious people have borrowed from the therapeutic view related to alcoholism that a person is merely a "recovering alcoholic" or in this case, a "recovering homosexual". This is not true for true Christians as far as the Bible is concerned. "Such were some of you" (1 Cor. 6:9-11), means that lifestyle is in the past and the old man has died. You are not a homosexual any more. You are a Christian. But you might be a Christian who still has some problem with remaining habits and sins. In fact, we all do. You are substantially different, as indicated by your behavior. The fact that the old you has died, however, is a necessary assertion, from Romans 6. And sin is an aberration and an infiltrator. You are not what you were, but your are new. And your behavior validates that if your salvation is real.
May God give you continued hope and help as you trust Him.
Only thru the back door
Heaven? I think not.
“Do Homosexuals go to Heaven”
It is my belief that all repentant sinners go to Heaven.
Yeah, but their heaven looks a lot like our hell!
Better question: Why does anybody get to go?
You might hold the world record for the most sins committed in any category, but that is all wiped out when you accept Christ as your personal Savior.
That’s what my Bible says. And you know what? God is so forgiving He will accept you no matter how many times you fall and get up.
Isn’t that beautiful.
Now...SIN NO MORE!
Once you are in heaven the sexual behavior stops so you are not a homosexual.
If homosexuals do not go to heaven, then neither do boasters, adulterers, self-centered people, thieves, liars, or anyone for that matter.
For someone that has been a Christian for 10 years the writer should know that he is off base here. Every REPENTANT sinner that has accepted Jesus Christ as their savior, goes to Heaven. If one is actively, unrepentantly engaged in the behaviors listed (not the personality traits) then they would NOT go to Heaven. Just like an unrepentant sodomite will burn in hell, so shall they.
But don’t take my word for it, try reading the Word of God.
I assume we lose all our sex organs, and women have no boobs?
We all have to sit on the golden throne to do our business?
Where does it say that? I hope I get to have more time with my husband in heaven.
I’m hoping if I do manage to get to heaven, I won’t be having to worry about who’s gay and who’s not. I hear enough of that subject here on Earth.
homosexuality is a behavior or action, not a person.
I think we have to let God be the judge about who gets to Heaven. However, if you really love God then you don’t want to make him unhappy, and sin makes God unhappy.
If you are in Christ you and your husband will be more intimate than ever but not sexually active.
Christians can struggle with same-sex attraction. Christians go to heaven to be with their Lord. Those who experience same-sex attraction are not barred from being in heaven with their Lord.
Those who identify themselves primarily as “homosexual” rather than “Christian,” who practice homosexual acts rather than Christian ones — they may very well be hell-bound.
It’s questions like this that make our side look bad. Who goes and doesnt go to heaven is not for any human to judge.
Trust God to figure it out
Assuming your spouse died here on earth and you remarried.
Do you get to be a polygamist in Heaven?
