Learning to Properly Interpret the Bible

"For this reason God gave them over … to vile affections and degrading passions. Their women exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one...  The men also turned from natural relations with women and were set ablaze … with lust for one another – men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalty of wrongdoing…” (Romans 1:26,27 Amplified Bible)

I once turned on a Christian TV program to hear a teenage “Bible Study Leader” say, “The Bible says absolutely nothing about homosexuality or lesbianism.  It’s a matter of choice.  God leaves it up to us.”  

Apparently she was not referring to the Bible God wrote.  The One you just read above.

Another time I heard the TV Talk Show host, Phil Donahue, gleefully exclaim, “The word ‘homosexual’ isn’t even in the Bible!”  

I thought to myself, “You’re right Phil, it isn’t.  But the subject certainly is.”  

The words “homicide” and “Capital Punishment” aren’t in the Bible either, but the subjects are.  The Bible says if you commit one, you will definitely experience the other. (1Timothy 1:9; 1Peter 4:15; Revelation 21:8; 22:15

The Bible-illiterate teen Bible study leader and the ignorant talk show host would be well served by reading the following Bible verses.  If you’re as confused as they are, you would be, too. (Genesis 8:21; 19:1-11; Leviticus 20:13; Deuteronomy 23:17; 1Kings 14:24; 15:12; 22:46; 2Kings 23:7; Joel 3:3; Ephesians 5:3,4; 2Timothy 3:1-3, 13; 2Peter 2:7-22; Jude 1:7-19)

The Apostle Paul's Solemn Warning to Those Who Engage in Unnatural Lusts

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind ... shall inherit the Kingdom of God. And such were some of you but ye are washed, ye are sanctified, ye are justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God." (1Corinthians 6:9-11)

Notice in verse 9 the references to "effeminate" and "abusers of themselves with mankind." 

These are specific references to effeminate men, male prostitutes, sodomites, female prostitutes and lesbians. They are specific references to self-polluters who submit themselves to evil spirits through unnatural lusts.

Today's "relevant" Christians are too often submissive to the worldly temptation of underrating the peril which results from immoral, homosexual and lesbian behaviors. 

The Apostle Paul made it perfectly clear that they "shall not inherit the Kingdom of God" without repentance. 

This leaves them in the dangerous position of being without a Covenant with Holy God, leaving them with no guarantee of provision or protection, running the risk of premature death and ending up in the now "archaic" yet very real place called Hell.

The Bible which God authored is exceptionally clear.  “Thou shalt not be with mankind as with womankind: It is an abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22)

Someone always pipes up, "That's part of the Old Testament and it does not count today."

Of course, the Bible response to such foolishness is, "For I am the Lord, I change not..." (Malachi 3:6)

God does not change His eternal views of what is moral and what is not, in order to become more relevant to the modern Church.  His plain and clear views on immorality extend throughout all generations and are clear in both the Old and New Testaments.  

Holy God actually considers homosexuality and lesbianism to be as abominable as bestiality. It carries the same penalty. (Leviticus 18:23)

The curse of the Law of Sin and Death not only prevails upon individuals who accept homosexuality and lesbianism as normal, but it also prevails upon all Nations who do so. (Leviticus 18:25; Proverbs 16:25; Ezekiel 18:20; Romans 6:23)

The Supreme Court of the United States declaring homosexual marriage to be legal does not make homosexual marriage moral in God's eyes. America is paying for this defiant decision.

Jesus Didn't Address Homosexuality in the Gospels?

Carl Lentz, the controversial leader of Hillsong Church in New York City, has made the statement that Jesus Christ did not address the subject of homosexuality in the Gospels. His argument is if Jesus didn't make an issue of homosexuality, we should follow His example and not make an issue of homosexuality either. Mr. Lentz has issued a challenge for any Christian to show him where Jesus addressed homosexuality, in any way, in the Gospels. 

The fact is, when Jesus condemned Sodom and Gomorrah, a bastion of homosexuality, He was condemning the homosexuality that damned those two cities and their sinful occupants. (Matthew 10:15)  

When Jesus put His stamp of approval on heterosexual marriage between a male and a female only, He was indeed condemning homosexuality. Jesus made it clear that marriage and sexual relationship was to be between a male and female only, never between a male and a male, or a female and a female. When addressing the Pharisees concerning this, Jesus was clearly setting the mold for God-ordained marriage and human sexual relationships. (Matthew 19:4-6)

Jesus Christ boldly and continually referred to and underscored all of the teachings of Moses. (John 5:45-47) Moses openly and clearly condemned homosexuality without reservation. (Leviticus 18:22; 20:13)

By condemning Sodom and Gomorrah, making it clear that heterosexuality is the only acceptable norm with Holy God and underscoring Moses' teachings on the subject, Jesus Christ clearly condemned homosexual relationships and homosexual marriage.

Something else Mr. Lentz is unaware of, or deliberately and deceitfully overlooks, is the fact that all of Paul's revelations on the sin of homosexuality and lesbianism, of which he wrote to the Churches at Rome and Corinth, were given to him by visitation and direct revelation of the Lord Jesus Christ. This means Jesus Christ actually appeared to the Apostle Paul and directly taught him that homosexuality and lesbianism are sins that will be judged by Holy God. (Galatians 1:11-12)

The Apostle John's teachings against homosexuality in the Book of Revelation were also delivered to him directly by personal visitation of the Lord Jesus Christ. (Revelation 1:9-10; 21:27; 22:14-15)

Therefore, it is nothing less than Bible-illiteracy or dishonesty to state that Jesus did not address homosexuality in the Gospels. Jesus Christ not only directly addressed homosexuality in the Gospels, but He did so throughout the Epistles and the Book of Revelation.

Let us also never forget that it was Jesus Christ Himself Who turned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah into ashes, along with its immoral inhabitants, as a generational warning to all who should choose the LGBT lifestyle. (2Peter 2:4-6)

Gay Sex Between Consenting Individuals Harms No One?

The former top psychiatrist of John Hopkins Hospital and School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland has stated that transgender persons whose genitalia have been surgically altered suffer a suicide rate twenty times higher than the general population.

The National Health and Nutrition Exam Survey 3 reports nearly twenty percent of homosexuals attempt suicide, compared to less than four percent of heterosexuals. 

LGBT teens and young adults have one of the highest rates of attempted suicide. At the same time, suicide is the leading cause of death amongst gay and lesbian youth across America. 

Gay suicide statistics concerning youth and transgender people are absolutely shocking. This is because every time an immoral homosexual act is committed, the human conscience throbs with guilt and sorrow.

Researchers report a staggering twelve percent of urban gay and bisexual men attempt suicide. This is a rate three times more often than the average American adult male.

The risk of suicide amongst the gay and lesbian community is over two hundred percent more likely than amongst the heterosexual population.  Again, this is because the human conscience throbs with conviction when these types of sins are committed.

Health 24.Com, a UK study, reports that homosexuals and lesbians are fifty percent more likely to suffer depression and engage in substance abuse than the rest of the population.

The International Journal of Epidemiology 20 (1997) reports, "The life expectancy for gay and bisexual men is eight to twenty years less than that for heterosexual men in general." More recent reports now indicate that has been increased to twenty-four years shorter lifespan on average than heterosexuals. 

On average homosexuals die in their mid-40s to early 50s.

Others argue that homosexuality and lesbianism is acceptable and healthy as long as the relationships remain monogamous. However, the Journal of Sex Research reveals, "The model range for the number of sexual partners ever (of homosexuals) was 101 to 500." 

This Journal of Sex Research discovery reveals that homosexuals are far more promiscuous than heterosexuals despite all untrue reports that "homosexuality is a monogamous affair which cannot harm anyone."

Approximately two percent of the United States population engages in homosexuality, yet it accounts for sixty-one percent of all new HIV infections.  This small group of Americans is the only risk group which has been steadily increasing in HIV infections since the early 1990s.

The U.S. Center for Disease Control reports homosexual men are 44 to 86 times more likely to be diagnosed with HIV than heterosexuals.

If homosexuality is "a monogamous affair and doesn't harm anyone," why is the percentage of HIV and aids infection so outstandingly higher amongst homosexuals than amongst the heterosexual population?

The National LGBT Cancer Network in its report "Anal Cancer, HIV and Gay/Bisexual Men" is quoted as saying, "Among men who have sex with men (MSM), the incidents of anal cancer is significantly more prevalent and increasing annually." The same article states, "Current estimates are that HIV negative MSMs are 20 times more likely to be diagnosed with anal cancer."  See their website at www.cancer-network.org

The Gay and Lesbian Medical Association reports that women who engage in lesbianism are at a documented greater risk for breast cancer, alcoholism and obesity.

The American Journal of Public Health reports that lesbian and bisexual women have a much higher level of reproductive and overall general health problems with bad outcomes.

The Journal of Social Service Research 15 (1991): 41-59 reports, "Incidents of domestic violence amongst gay men is nearly double that of the heterosexual population."

Research and medical reports, even those conducted by homosexual and lesbian researchers, reveal in staggering ways that homosexuality is not at all a monogamous affair that harms absolutely no one.

Given only these limited medical and research statistics, it is beyond comprehension how anyone can believe that homosexual sex between consenting individuals harms no one.

The Bible clearly states that curses never come without a cause. (Proverbs 26:2) 

"God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their bodies between themselves: who change the truth of God into a lie & worship & serve the creature more than the Creator...suffering in their bodies & personalities the inevitable consequences & penalty of wrongdoing…" (Romans 1:24-25,27 Amplified Bible)   

The Terminal Generation of the World

God and Satan both know the generation that accepts homosexuality and lesbianism as normal will be the terminal generation of this world! 

When all the men go off with the men and all the women with the women, there will be no more conception.  This would mark the end of human procreation.  

Wouldn’t Satan just love that?  He hates God and nothing pleases him more than the destruction and the elimination of the apex of God’s precious creation - humanity.

Have you ever stopped to realize if the Animal Kingdom practiced this abomination there’d be no more “makin’ bacon” or eggs? There would be no more animal reproduction and ultimately no more meat, fish or poultry.  

If the Plant and Vegetable Kingdom suddenly began to oppose nature in such a way, there’d be no more trees, shrubs, herbs, seeds, fruits or vegetables.  

Why is it that the lowest forms of creation seem to have more sensibility than a certain two percent segment of the highest form of creation?  

Satan has blinded their eyes and they love his darkness more than God's light. 

"And this is the condemnation, that light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light..." (John 3:19-21)

Every Minority Status Should Be Outraged

Everyone who qualifies for genuine Minority Status should be outraged by his or her culture being equated with sexual immorality.  

Homosexuals and lesbians are not Minorities, they are sinners who must be delivered, forgiven and saved by Jesus’ Blood

Ethnic groups are born that way and cannot change what they are. 

"Can an Ethiopian change his skin, or the leopard his spots?" (Jeremiah 13:23)

The implied answer here is "No, ethnic groups cannot change the way they were born."  

However, homosexuals and lesbians can and do change all the time.  

I have never known a former Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Oriental, Indian, Hebrew, etc. Yet I do know former fornicators, adulterers, homosexuals and lesbians who have all been changed by the power of Jesus Christ.

The Apostle Paul also acknowledged that homosexuals and lesbians can be changed, washed and sanctified. 

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, nor effeminate (homosexuals), nor abusers of themselves with mankind (lesbians), nor thieves, drunkards, revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the Kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but you are washed, you are sanctified, you are justified in the Name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God." (1Corinthians 6:10-11)

It is an outrageous insult for homosexuals and lesbians to justify their immorality by equating themselves with the legitimate Minority Status of others. 

Homosexuals & Lesbians Are Introduced, Not Birthed, to Immorality

Many, if not most homosexuals and lesbians, in defense of their behaviors, insist that they are birthed into a lifestyle of homosexuality and lesbianism. They insist that physiologically and genetically there is a vast difference between homosexual men and women and their heterosexual counterparts. 

However, the National LGBT Cancer Network, in an attempt to downplay increased breast cancer and ovarian cancer statistics amongst lesbians, states, "Certainly there is no physiological or genetic difference between lesbians and heterosexual women." See their website at www.cancer-network.org.

Homosexuals and lesbians simply cannot have it both ways.  

Not only are homosexuals and lesbians not birthed into that lifestyle but they can almost always remember the very person or situation that introduced them to their sin.

In our opening text we read, "For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 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." (Romans 1:26,27)

The Bible clearly states that lesbians and homosexuals changed themselves. 

God did not change them. 

The Bible says it is human beings who change their God-given natural sexual desires in exchange for unnatural sexual desires. 

Homosexuality and lesbianism are not acts of nature, culture, environment or genetics. 

Homosexuality and lesbianism are matters of choice - human choice and misuse of God-given free will.

The Bible entirely eliminates all argument, human reasoning and justification for wrong sexual choices made by free moral agents.

The Bible makes it clear that all human beings are born with a knowledge of God as well as a conscience which dictates right and wrong. (Romans 1:18-21)

This means the conscience of every LGBT individual tells them their behavior is wrong, yet they continue to defy God regardless. 

The decision to disobey human conscience and become a homosexual or a lesbian involves tremendous risk. 

Unnatural behavior opens one up to supernatural, demonic oppression. There are not only destructive physical and emotional consequences for homosexual behavior but there are spiritual consequences as well.  Opening oneself up to unnatural behavior opens oneself up to demonic possession, oppression and/or obsession.

During His Earth Ministry, Jesus Christ spent no less than one-quarter of His time teaching His disciples the Doctrines of Satanology and Demonology, as well as casting untold numbers of unclean spirits out of bound and suffering human beings. 

Many of the unclean spirits that entered into those people were initially allowed access by human beings who had deliberately changed their natural sexual desires in exchange for unnatural sexual desires. 

This type of rebellion always opens the door for demonic activity.

Sometimes individuals bound by homosexual or lesbian spirits need the help of an anointed Christian layperson or Christian Minister of the Gospel, who knows their authority in Christ, in order to be set free from those unclean spirits.

Certainly a psychiatrist cannot help an individual who has been involved in immorality to the extent that they have become oppressed by demon spirits. Unless a psychiatrist is a Born Again Believer in Jesus Christ who understands his authority in Christ, he or she is extremely limited in what help they can offer individuals who are bound in sexual sin. 

Psychiatrists themselves commit suicide four times more often than the average white male.

Deceived people do not realize they are deceived because they are deceived. 

Do not allow yourself to be deceived. Homosexuality and lesbianism create a dangerous playground for unclean spirits and the individual involved with them needs Christ's help.

Fornicators can make the decision to stop fornicating. 

Adulterers can make the decision to stop being adulterers. 

In the same way homosexuals and lesbians can make the decision to stop engaging in homosexuality and lesbianism. 

Even as it is a matter of choice to be bound by sexual sin, it is a matter of choice to be free from sexual sin.

The Selfish, Unloving Practice of Acceptance    

Do not allow liberal politicians and Bible-illiterate religious leaders to convince you the Bible is wrong and you were born that way. If one was born into this type of unnatural behavior God would be unjust in judging it and punishing it as immorality.

Homosexuality and lesbianism are not "a journey" we encourage others in as Pastor Brian Houston of Hillsong Australia has stated. Homosexuality and lesbianism are sins according to the Bible and no one has the authority to soften or spin what the Bible refers to as "sin." 

The Bible refers to homosexuality not as a birth trait but as an "abominable" sin which will separate the guilty from the presence of God forever.

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the Second Death." (Revelation 21:8)

Holy God calls these sinful, immoral persons “dumb, greedy dogs” because they never stop to think about what is right and what is wrong. They do as they please. (Isaiah 56:10-11)

Immoral persons or "dogs" have no Covenant with God, no inheritance and are not allowed to enter the gates of Heaven.

"Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the Tree of Life, and may enter in through the gates into the City. For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie." (Revelation 22:14-15)

The present, popular, God-defying, anti-Bible practice of welcoming homosexuals into family, Church and social settings does great harm to everyone, particularly the sinful ones.  It undergirds the "normalization" of that which God says is reprobate, loathsome and abnormal.

"And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him ... He gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome." (Romans 1:28 Amp) 

Acceptance leads the sinful one to wrongly believe that they need not repent for their error and that God will not judge them for it.  

Therefore, it is selfish and unloving for a compassionate Believer in Jesus Christ to not warn homosexuals, lesbians and transgender people of pending, yet avoidable judgment.

After all, there is a Hell to shun and a Heaven to gain. True love would tell them so. 

"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the Kingdom of God?  Be not deceived: Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind (homosexuals, lesbians, etc.) ... shall inherit the Kingdom of God." (1Corinthians 6:9-10)

Heaven Doesn't Make Shipping Mistakes

Some insist, “God made me this way.  I’m a man in a woman’s body,” etc.  

That ridiculous argument won’t hold up on the unbeliever’s Judgment Day, anymore than it will on the Believer’s Judgment Day

You did not get past "Heaven’s Quality Control Center” during a sloppy work shift.  

Nobody in Heaven let you get shipped down to Planet Earth in the wrong body as it was late Friday afternoon and they did not want to take the time to correct their mistake because they wanted to go home early. 

God personally saw to it that your spirit-man was put in the right physical body.

You cannot change your God-given chromosomes and DNA by denying what you are, pretending and dressing as if you are something else or even by having your genitalia customized.  

Ask God to forgive you for blaming Him for the wrong moral decisions you've made.  He didn’t make you that way.  You can remember the very individual who introduced that sin into your life.  

So snap out of it. Take control of your life back. 

Tell Satan that he is not oppressing you with unclean spirits of immorality and unnatural lust any longer. 

Say, “Jesus, I choose You as my Lord, Savior, Liberator and Deliverer.  Deliver me from this sin.  I’m miserable each time I commit it.  I have no joy.  I want a real family.”  

He will do exactly as you ask.  He loves you deeply and He wants to set you free

He promises if you run to Him, and not away from Him, with your problem, He will receive you and not cast you away. He will forgive you and deliver you from your dilemma.

"All that the Father giveth Me shall come to Me; and him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out." (John 6:37) 

"For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved and delivered from the penalty and the punishment of their sin." (Romans 10:13)

The Believer's Prayer of Deliverance

If you have been dominated and controlled by LGBT thoughts and/or behaviors and Christ is your Savior, unleash the following faith command against those evil spirits who are oppressing you and they will flee.

"I bind the rulers of the darkness of this present evil world, demonic principalities and powers, including homosexuality / lesbianism.  Satan, I break your power against my mind and my body in the Strong Name of Jesus Who rose from the dead.  Loose me and let me go free. I am not a homosexual.  I am not a lesbian. I am not a transgender nor am I bisexual. I am a pious creation of a Holy God and I bow my knee to Him alone.  I call myself free from every immoral behavior in the Name of Jesus Christ Who raised from the dead."

Every time Satan tries to return with the lie that you are still bound, simply open your mouth and say, "I cast down these wicked vain imaginations and I call myself free from homosexual and lesbian spirits in the Name of Jesus Whom God raised from the dead."

"For though we walk in the flesh we do not war after the flesh: for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds: Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God's Word, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Jesus Christ." (2Corinthians 10:3-5)

Keep in mind, homosexuality and lesbianism are not the unforgivable sin.

Someone once said in rebellion, "Jesus loves me just the way I am." 

I responded, "Jesus does loves you even as you are, but He does not leave you the way you are. He gives you power to change and to be free."

Oh, yes! God loves you and He wants to set you free.

Be blessed ... John and Barbara Hamel
