"Ye are they which justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men is abomination in the sight of God." Luke 16:15
Homosexuality/sodomy is condemned by the physics of nature where the body is designed for procreation. It is only 'justified' by man's (and woman's) unrestrained desire ("lust") for the carnal pleasures of the 'moment' which the world stimulates, making pleasure the 'drive' and the 'purpose' of life over and therefore against God's law and order, including the laws of nature which God has established for all times and places. Loving pleasure over and therefore against God, it is the only pathway those who 'justify' man's carnal nature, i.e., deviancy can take.
'Driven' by and 'purposed' in seeking pleasure, homosexuals hate condemnation, threatening and silencing those who interfere with (or they perceive as potentially interfering with) their perverse ways. While adulteress and adulteresses, recognizing the physics of nature, have sexual relationship with those of the opposite sex, only having it with the wrong woman or man, i.e., with a woman or man who is not their spouse, homosexuals, rejecting the physics of nature, i.e., the laws of their own body, make the pleasure of sex the only objective of life itself, having sex with whoever and/or whatever brings them pleasure.
Immanuel Kant's "lawfulness without law," 'justifies' the homosexual in his mind, where his carnal nature, i.e., his "lusting" after pleasure, unrestrained by law, becomes the law of the land. The question is, if those who believe in "lawfulness without law," i.e., if the lawless rule, establishing "lawfulness without law" as the law of the land, then what will happen to those who believe in rule of law, which carries with it restraint.
The homosexual culture can only propagate and sustain itself, i.e., force itself upon all cultures, i.e., upon everyone in an environment which is tolerant of its "lawfulness without law" ways, vehemently attacking all who reject and condemn its way of thinking and acting, i.e., its theory and practice. The mantra of a homosexual culture can only be "If you do not give us what we want," i.e., "If you get in our way" "a worse thing will happen to you." When Lot tried to reason with the men of Sodom, to protect his guests (the two angles) from their praxis, they responded with "[we will] deal worse with thee, than with them." Genesis 19:19 In other words, all must be subject to, i.e., support, protect, and, if and when the homosexual desires, participate in his perverse ways (or else).
You have not seen hate until you have seen a culture under the influence and control of homosexuals. Accusing you of being hateful when you expose them for their deceitful and wicked ways they will turn and "rend" you for getting in their way. It is the nature of the beast. "The innermost core of man's nature, the base of his 'animal nature,' is positive [without limits] in nature." "Maslow puts up a vigorous case for man's animal nature." (Carl Rogers, on becoming a person: A Therapist View of Psychotherapy)
The dialoguing of opinions to a consensus is the pathway on which the homosexual travels, 'justifying,' i.e., affirming his lawless, i.e., "lawfulness without law" ways. You might say, while you are walking down the same pathway as he (or she), I am not like him (or her). The problem is, you are traveling down the same path he is. It is not how far down the pathway you have gone. It is the pathway you are on. One step on the path, as in a pig pen, and you stink. It is why "churches"—having once been faithful to the word of God, preaching and teaching God's word which condemns homosexuality—are embracing it today instead. Where the "church" goes the nation goes. The leadership of the nation reflects the heart of the people, which the "church" effects.
There is a world of difference between preaching, teaching, and discussing the word of God to be accepted as is, by faith, and obeyed and dialoguing men's opinion of it to a consensus, making it subject to man's carnal desires of the 'moment,' which are stimulated by, i.e., subject to the world they are in. The first takes you to the alter of God (Holiness), the latter to the alter of man (abomination).
"Hear the word of the LORD, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah." "Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil; Learn to do well; seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel, ye shall be devoured with the sword: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it." Isaiah 1:10, 16-20
No one is born a homosexual. All are born into sin. Letting sin, i.e., the flesh have its way only leads man down the pathway of deviancy. Depravity depends upon how much deviancy he is willing (desiring) to participate in, i.e., depends upon how far down the pathway of dialectic 'reasoning,' i.e., "self" 'justification, i.e., deviancy, i.e., 'change' he has traveled, with his first step on the pathway already condemning him of sin.
God is merciful to all, who, turning to him, repent of and turn from their wicked ways. While God's law can save no one, only, as a tutor, revealing man's sinful ways, i.e., condemning his deceitful and wicked heart, he has provided a way of salvation for all who will hear and in faith receive him, and doing his will, obey. Through his son, Jesus Christ taking our sins away, i.e., covering them with his shed blood on the cross, he has imputing his righteousness unto all who have faith in him, that we might be right, i.e., righteous before him, i.e., right in his eyes. In this life, walking in the spirit, instead of the flesh, we are able to do our Heavenly Father's and His son's will. Through his 'resurrection' we are reconciled to his Heavenly Father, thereby, after death (which we must all face because of our sins, i.e., because of our praxis of "self" 'justification') we enter into eternal life with Him instead of eternal death in the lake of fire that is never quenched, spending eternity in torment and anguish along with the devil, his angles, and all who, rejecting salvation, 'justified' themselves, i.e., 'justified' their "lusting" after the pleasures of the world (which are never satisfied), i.e., 'justified' their walking down the dialectic pathway of deviancy which leads to eternal death. "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." Proverbs 16:25
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one 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, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God." John 3:16-21
"Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works." Matthew 16:24-27
