SO FAR THIS WEEK
Throughout the week, we have learnt about homosexuality, masturbation, and other deviant sexual practice. Homosexuality is when people of the same sex (man and man; woman and woman) engage in sexual activities.
We also got to know that homosexuality is not God’s approved way and so as Christians, we must stand and preach against it. We understood that God created humans to share pleasure. And so we must derive sexual gratification only in the context of marriage between a man and a woman.
Therefore, masturbation, the stimulation of an individual by him or herself using any part of the body or an object for sexual pleasure is totally sinful. Homosexuals have found themselves in the church and so we should be open-minded and vigilant not to be deceived into the lifestyle which is evil, shameful, abominable, wicked and will cause people to perish in hell.
We also got to know that homosexuality has not just become a lifestyle, but has also become a religious movement that seeks to mock God and His church, while doing everything possible to be firmly established in the world. However, they are not beyond salvation. Any homosexual that turns to the Lord will be accepted, washed and sanctified by the blood of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
May the Lord grant grace to the church to condemn homosexuality while reaching to homosexuals with the Gospel unto Salvation.
