Homosexuality Is Wrong

 
      Within the past several years gay and lesbian rights has become a huge issue. Gays and lesbians have started to come out of the ''closet," and proudly admitting their sexuality. In the past few years gays and lesbians have been fighting for the right to marry, and adopt children. So far there is only one state that allows gays to become married. People have become more and more open minded with homosexuality. Twenty years ago homosexuality was looked down upon (in general), but now our society thinks that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality. Our nation has started to move away from God, this is why people think that homosexuality is all right. If people are not close to God and do not follow Him, then they are not going to abide by His standards.

 

There are several places in the Bible where it talks about homosexuality. The Bible has nothing positive to say about men and women sleeping with the same sex. In Leviticus 20:13, it states ''If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.'' This is saying that if a man has sex with another man, then both of the men should be put to death. It would be the men's own fault for their death. This is one of the few sins mentioned in the Bible that suggest death for the sin. Now days people are not put to death for this sin, they are accepted and viewed as ''normal''. People do not really see anything wrong with homosexuality. Our culture needs to study the Bible and come closer to God instead of moving away from Him. If our nation does this then they may see why homosexuality is wrong. Our culture does not view homosexuality as a sin or abomination into God, they view it as a person's right to have sex with the same sex if they want to. The Bible even states that it is a sin for a man to wear women's clothes, or just the opposite. If this is wrong, then have sex with the same sex is defiantly out of the question.

 

Another reason that homosexuality is wrong is because it simple just is not natural. As the saying goes ''God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve''. God made one man and one woman in the beginning, not two men. In nature there are not two male dogs, cats, or any other animals that have sex. It is always male and female. If God intended for males to sleep together, then He would have made it where men can have babied too, but He did not. God made males able to impregnate females, and females able to carry and deliver babies. Also when God sent the flood, He sent one male and one female of each animal to survive the flood. He did not send two male tigers to survive, but a male tiger and a female tiger. Animals can only survive with the sexual intercourse of male and female. People have started to do research trying to prove that being gay is something that you are born with. Scientist are trying to prove that homosexuality is...
