Should Married Sodomite (Gay, Lesbian) Couples Divorce After Being Saved?
Should liars stop lying when saved?
Should thieves stop stealing and rather put their hands to honest labor so that they may give to others when saved?
Should the sexually immoral purify themselves in the sight of God and know how to possess their vessels in holiness and honor?
Homosexuality in a sin and Christ died to save us from all sin.
What is the significance of this? Paul explains this in the letter to the Romans.
[b]18.[/b] For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness,
[b]19.[/b] because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them.
[b]20.[/b] For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.
[b]21.[/b] For even though they knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
[b]22.[/b] Professing to be wise, they became fools,
[b]23.[/b] and exchanged the glory of the incorruptible God for an image in the form of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed animals and crawling creatures.
[b]24.[/b] Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them.
[b]25.[/b] For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
[b]26.[/b] [u]For this reason[/u] (because of everything just said) [b]God gave them over to degrading passions[/b]; (how did those passions manifest themselves?) for their [u]women exchanged the natural function[/u] for that which is unnatural,
[b]27.[/b] and [u]in the same way[/u] also [b]the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, [u]men with men[/u][/b] committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error.
[b]28.[/b] And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper,
[b]29.[/b] being filled with all unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil . . . etc.
Homosexuality (as with heterosexual and all manner of immorality) is a direct perversion of the truth and glory of God and is therefore contrary and opposed to that divine wisdom by which God created man in His image and likeness as both male and female. This mystery of the human nature in sexuality and covenantal union (ie. marriage, "flesh of my flesh, bone of my bone" -- which are mystical unions) is even further expressed as a parable of Christ's marriage to His church, being joined one spirit with the Holy Ghost; which, to say the least, is no slight thing.
As you can see a little study in the area of sexuality, not in the details but rather in the metaphysical aspects, conveys an immediate recognition as to why sexual immorality and indecency are both so powerfully pervasive in the flesh and why it is such a persistent matter of contention for holiness unto the Lord.
