The Bible describes the Roman Catholic institution as "the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird" (Rev. 18:2). Throughout all the centuries of its existence, homosexuality has been committed within its seminaries and monasteries and dioceses. A priesthood forbidden to marry, sworn to celibacy, and surrounded, in their unnatural and lonely lifestyles, with other men just like themselves, may issue all the documents and statements they like; but sodomy has always been committed by these men, and always will be.
No homosexual is "born that way", as they love to tell the world. There is not a single heritable genetic, hormonal, biological or physical difference between homosexuals and everyone else. Many, many sodomites change their sexual practices for a time, becoming involved with people of the opposite sex, and sometimes they do this many times in their lives. This alone proves that it is not something they were "born to be". The fact is, sodomy is a behaviour, not an immutable "orientation" as they love to claim. It is a sinful practice a person chooses to do, not an innate or inherited characteristic. All men are conceived with sinful natures: this is the biblical doctrine of the total depravity of mankind. And just as some men's sinful natures find expression in a particular direction, others find expression in another direction. Most unregenerate men lust after women; and some unregenerate men lust after other men. Both are sinful, and when either one turns to the Lord, both will be repented of, and forsaken.
As we watch the Harlot of Rome, and her harlot daughters such as the Anglican institution, discuss and debate homosexuality, issue statements and documents, and pussyfoot around the plain teaching of God's Word, let us never lose sight of what the Bible says: that sodomy is an abomination, a great uncleanness, a dishonouring of the body, a vile affection, a defiling of oneself, a changing of the natural use into that which is against nature, a working of that which is unseemly (Lev. 18:22; Rom. 1:24-27; 1 Tim. 1:10); and that no sodomite will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9,10).
But if any sodomite truly turns to the Lord in faith, repenting of this filthy sin, he will be washed, sanctified, and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of God (1 Cor. 6:11)! He will then no longer be a sodomite, but a new creature in Christ, saved from his sin – a Christian!
