My letter is a response directed to the letter “Leave the judging to God,” by Anne Rogers, published May 22.
She wrote, “In fact, you’d be hard pressed to find homosexuality in the Bible as a sin.” Really, Ms. Rogers? My Bible reads, “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Do not be deceived”; then it lists nine categories of sin, of which one is “homosexuals.” Another passage reads it is an abomination for a man to lie with a man as with a woman.
The act of homosexuality is such an abomination to Almighty God that He destroyed a place called Sodom because all the men there performed homosexual acts and desired to have their perverse sexual activities with two angels of God.
This being said, the Bible encourages Christians to love the sinner but hate the sin. After all, every one of us falls short of God’s Glory and are sinners. The Bible as well as the church can instruct us what to do about our own personal sin.
This topic reminds me of what the serpent of old said, “You shall not surely die!”
