Homosexuality: a choice, gender or not?

by Jannie


First, please take note that this meditation is not about the complex, challenging and even perhaps sad “conditions”, very broadly termed “intersex” or, for example, about unfortunate people suffering from disorders such as “Persistent Müllerian syndrome”.  That is for specialists such as endocrinologists – that this author is by no means, and specialized counsellors – that can address this properly and compassionately, perhaps starting with a sonar examination for confirmation that such “abnormality” exists? This meditation then, is rather about those who can be proven by medical examination (such as a sonar) to not be “intersex”; but who have simply chosen to fill a genderless role while they are not “intersex” but biologically “normal”. Again, we are not talking here about deviations in chromosomes that are now scientifically known to have more combinations than simply X-X or X-Y. We seem to know too little about this yet. No, this meditation is attempting a spiritual approach to choices made and do not attempt or pretend to address the medical or biological deviations that should be determined by proper medical [including sonar] examination.

Secondly, please bear with this author (fully aware of his own shortcomings and failures – Rom 3:23; 1 Tim 1:15) and read this meditation in its entirety [thoroughly and to its end] so that we can all find the same and only true God that is Love; but also Truth (Jn 8:32,36; 14:6); and in so doing, rather attack and rebel against confusion and error, than a perfect Father-God (Source, Provider, Sustainer).  Why would we anyway project our hurt, disappointment and offense due to bad experiences with certain humans [as an earthly father or husband], unto a perfect Heavenly Father? How did it happen that we suspect God is at fault (Jm 1:13-15)?  And then rebel against Him? Is there perhaps a sinister plot of a defeated foe (Col 2:15) still roaming around (1 Pet 5:8) before his final demise (Rev 2:11; 20:6,14; 21:8)? Let’s try to examine this not just empirical but also truthfully as we progress through this meditation?

There seems to have gone many things seriously wrong in this world that God initially created, that God cannot be blamed for; but was introduced by our free will (refer to the meditation “The will of man, the will of God”). We see humans, for example, essentially even poisoning their own food, unintentionally when attempting to preserve freshness longer [?], or to make it more tasty (enslaving?); but apparently often plainly due to greed.

Note on faith. Rom 12:3 states that we have all been given “the” degree of faith, not “a” degree [individually varying fractional amount] of faith. The implication is that God gave all humans the same mechanism with the same capacity along with our free will as a type of gift (refer to the meditation “The will of man, the will of God”); how, and in what measure we return this, is then our “gift” [thanks] to God and forms the degree in which we believe and follow God’s salvation plan: Jesus Christ, and His precepts and then calls it faith ( 1 Jn 2:4).  Ponder then, Heb 4:2 (Mt 15:6-9); Heb 11:6,9; Rom 12:9; Jn 16:9; even 1 Sam 16:7; Jer 17:9; 29:13 (Dt 6:5-7); Prov 23:7 (The KJV and Ampl reads “For as a man thinks in his heart, so is he”); Mt 5:8; 6:21; 12:35; 1 Cor 13:11; 2 Cor 10:5; and then Jn 1:17; 5:45; 9:28 with Jn 5:39 and Gal 6:7-8 (the meditation “The Testimony” examines a shocking possibility). Note, as well, that the interpretation that “the degree of faith apportioned by God” (Rom 12:3) could mean varying individual abilities to believe as if so differently equipped [in effect as an impairment] for each person individually by God, would seem unfair; for the shortcoming is not with what God equipped us with, but what and how we apply this, i.e. in what measure (as in endurance) we reciprocate God’s gifts, in particular, our free will (choices). It is possible that such erroneous interpretation might have been caused by a false enforcement of the “… of your unbelief” (Mt 17:20, KJV) or “your littleness of faith” (Mt 17:20, Ampl.) The context of the text seem to rather favour the idea that “littleness” here points to a short duration, i.e. a lack or shortcoming of continuous firm relying trust (refer to the idea of “overcome” through endurance in Rev 3:5,12,21) and not too little in ability (that would be used as our excuse). Refer here to Peter’s diminishing trust in Mt 14:29-30; and how he began to sink… surely implying that Peter started off walking on the water but then his trust regressively faded. A sobering observation is also that Jesus calls our astonishment at His miracles “callousness” and “a hardened heart” (Mk 6:51-52).  Hence perhaps the warning in Rom 12:3 to not have an exaggerated opinion of ourselves and that [mere] knowledge causes [learned] people to be puffed up ( 1 Cor 8:1).

When a human choose to reject God’s Holy Spirit, the situation is dire. Consider Heb 10:26-31; Rom 1:24; Mt 12:31-32; Mk 3:28-29; Lk 12:10; Eph 4:17-20,30; Eph 5:5-14.  Still, this is from our side, God seems to offer us 2 Pet 3:9 and 2 Tim 4:1-5… so, let’s read on, shall we?



To misname apostasy to God’s Word [The Bible], “modern” or “politically correct” is utterly self-righteous and tragically a mere misdirected exercising of the free will God gave us all (refer to the meditation “The will of man, the will of God” to realize that God [Love] is not the manipulator false preachers make Him out to be). We are given the luxury and ability of choice but in self-righteousness will be ironically blinded to the fatal self-destruction of a defiant reprobate mind. But, with the introductory paragraph as the proviso, do understand that one normally [when biologically “normal”] cannot choose your gender based on inclination/attraction; it is a plain delusional fallacy. Your chromosomes and features such as a womb, will rather define your gender and not what you emotionally feel.  To rebel against what gender [role] God intended us to be born with, as different genders, shows a dismal failure to grasp the vital role of a father and a mother, especially in the union referred to as marriage, as clearly intended by God. It is of course ridiculous [absurd, ludicrous, preposterous] for a human to think they can upstage[1] or spite God the Creator, so such attempts can only end in embarrassment and depression and ultimately self-destructive disaster. Note therefore the gender specific description in, for example, even just Gen 1:27; 2:24,25 and Mt 19:5 (Jn 1:1-4,14; 14:9-11,23-24). Even Mal 2:11-16; Mt 22:29-32 (Mk 7:13; 12:24; Mt 7:21-23; 15:7-9); Tit 1:15-16; Heb 12:15-17; Rev 21:8,27.

Overly sensitive groups today make a lot of noise about, basically, their offense.  Offense taken is subjective and therefore is it rather supercilious and conceited to demand change in vocabulary, convictions and belief of those who have “offended”. It is often comparable to a spoiled brat throwing tantrums and everyone bowing to them in submission like spineless cowards or in this case, with poor knowledge of God’s Word. “Freedom of speech”, ironically, is in such cases, thus, one-sided and hence false pretense and a farce. 

Without marriage (between one man and one woman to each other in faithfulness and commitment), immorality warned against in, for example even just in Rom 1:21-32, 1 Thess 4:3-5,7-8; 1 Tim 1:10 or Col 3:1-7, would be irrational. 

The Bible is not silent on immorality (and then to God’s standard – Mt 5:27-32; Jer 17:9-10), just ponder 1 Cor 5:11; 6:9; Eph 5:5; Heb 10:26-30; Rev 21:8 and Rev 22:15.

Sadly and ironically, the further a society drifts from the truth the more they will hate those who speak it.  So then, does this meditation hope to reveal the apocalypse of Jesus Christ on this subject of homosexuality!

Do you find this a confusing statement? Refer then, to the N.T. Greek dictionary [601. apŏkaluptō; 602. apŏkalupsis] and observe how we are guilty of a bizarre altering of the meaning of words and concepts. In other words, (pardon the pun), altering original intent and then calling [renaming] even apostasy a “modernism”, and even weirdly “post-modernism” with its “political correct” jargon. Apocalypse, for example, as used in Rev 1:1, means to uncover, to remove the veil, to disclose, lighten, bring revelation, appear and manifest and bring the mystery out in the open and shine light on it. Consider here Jn 1:1-17; Heb 13:8 and 1 Jn 1:5.  Why would we then choose to alter it to mean something portrayed in Hollywood (popularized by Apocalypse Now, a 1979 American war film)?  Refer to the meditation “Revelation, the Book” and consider the words penned by the apostle John that penned the apŏkalupsis of Jesus Christ, i.e. the Revelation of Jesus Christ (Rev 1:1)… What happened to the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us? Why would we confuse ourselves and ignore what was clearly given to us in His Word?  (Refer to the meditation “The Bible”). The false security promised by the world and its courts, must take note of Rev 22:11-15. “Gay” is yet another word changing “joy” (Gal 5:22?) to something totally different.

Let’s not beat around the bush. This is an issue more to do with belief (for now, call it religious conviction, if you will), than civil rights. We all must first understand and acknowledge that there are two main spirits [as source, seed, origin, camps] operating in this world.  Some call it good vs bad and vice versa. One sets you free (Jn 3:3; 8:32,36; 14:6) and the other will get you destroyed in a tragic rebellion of self-righteousness.  One has a kingdom of Light [Life; Jn 1:1-4; Col 1:13-23] with a King who has a Name above all names and is the King above all kings; and the other has a kingdom of darkness with a prince [who can oppress and distort but will never eternally be king]. We all have to renew our mind to who we ought to be in Christ Jesus. One spirit [seed] is Life, Truth and the only way to God the Father; the other is the father of all lies and of death. Forget carnal [false] Christianity with its play-actors and discover who you actually are in Christ so that you can manifest who God wants you to be on this earth and be truly free from the old sinful self.  Forget the false accusers and hypocrites – let’s find out what the Truth in Jesus Christ really is. The devil manifests in anyone (self-proclaimed “Christian” or not) who lines their thoughts up with that of the carnal world, and this is the spirit of the world that does not submit itself to the Spirit of God [is hostile to God], and is mentioned in Rom 8:1-19 (read up to verse 39; and compare Lk 9:55-56; Jn 3:3,17-21).

An honest and sincere investigation into this matter will reveal a fatal irrational and illogical attempt to separate sin from the sinner and a critically flawed effort to redefine God’s definition of sin and apostasy as set out clearly in The Bible, with laws devised by mortal humans and their ideas of “modernism”; to attempt to employ the weight of numbers with a temporal “political correctness” so that a minority can force the majority into being accomplices in a choice of a lifestyle that clashes with their belief. 

This is not about “rights” as we shall see further on in this meditation, for the “rights” of the majority is now being forcefully removed by using apostate people with political motives and apostate leaders backed by the sensation-thriving media, in a rebelling against God. This “reversal” (as with racism) is in fact worse than the original because the original was based on the majority opinion that was accepted as intuitive, rational and natural based on the moral convictions of the majority while the minority’s choice is now forced upon the majority but going further with a vindictive punity in all manners they can muster, including big financial fines, sanctions, boycotts and removal from jobs that opponents to homosexuality perform perfectly well. Why the extreme retaliation?

Refer to the meditation “ABC Myths, legends, lies” (p.19/36) for an explanation of why it is an error in reasoning and scriptural incorrect to try and separate sin from the sinner; and even more so, to redefine with “modernism” what God clearly in His Word states as sin, even as an abomination to Him.  Remember that God does not love a [perpetual, obstinate] sinner – God loves a repenting [changed, saved] sinner! More about these truths further on in this meditation.

If homosexuality was “right”, all should have that lifestyle [to be right], and that would then be the last generation of humans on earth and mankind [families on earth] would disappear.  This directly opposes God’s creation idea[2].  God, not man, created mankind and instated marriage only between one man and one woman and then unambiguously gender-specific as stated in even just Gen 1:27-28; Mt 19:4 and 1 Cor 7:2-5.  Man, therefore, has no right or mandate to redefine marriage; despite the political and “legal” systems they have come up with and propagate (Mt 19:4-6; Mk 10:5-9; 2 Pet 2:1-6; Phil 2:9-11; even Acts 13:10.  Note particularly 1 Cor 1:18-31; 2:6; 2 Pet 2:1-22; or even Jonah 2:8 when the annihilation of Nineveh for their apostasy was at stake [Prov 14:34]). Selah?

Then, carefully contemplate Mt 6:10 and Mt 18:18 (for that matter 2 Thess 2:3-12 and Jn 14:6; 15:1-5 as well). As far as God’s will is concerned, we can only declare what is proper and lawful what is already so in heaven, likewise regarding what is improper and unlawful. Jesus Christ is the one who will finally judge all that man has done (Jn 3:19-20; Acts 10:42; 17:30-31; Heb 10:26-31; even 1 Pet 4:2-6; Mt 7:19-23; 15:8-9 with Jn 3:3; Eph 5:3-13 and Is 5:18,20-21; 66:3-5).  Jesus – not any worldly learned judge, is the only one who’s right it is (Ez 21:27; 28:2). The other meditations on this website expand on this, such as “The will of man and the will of God”.  Read it?

As far as “political correctness” goes, note also Jm 4:3-4, that states, “You ask God and yet fail to receive, because you ask with wrong purpose and evil, selfish motives. Your intention is [when you get what you desire] to spend it on sensual pleasure. You are like unfaithful wives [having illicit love affairs with the world and breaking your marriage vow to God]!  Do you not know that being the world’s best friend is being God’s enemy?  So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world takes his stand as an enemy of God.”  (Feel free to read to v 10).  Observe how the father of our faith, Abraham (Rom 4:11), refused to have dealings with a Sodomite (Gen 14:17-23; Jm 4:3-8).  And again, Eph 5:5-7; 1 Cor 2:12-15; 3:16-20; Titus 1:15-16; Heb 10:30…

From the meditation “Prayer”, the following excerpt on “Loosing”: As with “binding”, rather understand this as the opposing of Satan’s strategies [depression, confusion, lies] – Mt 18:18; 2 Cor 10:4-6; Rev1:5.  i.e. Be free [loose] and distance yourself from carnal filth (Rom 1:16-32; 2 Tim 2:19-26; 2 Tim 3:1-17; Titus 2:12; Jm 4:1-8) and so be free in God’s love and providence, fellowship with Christ, and stop futile attempts of your own [human] self-righteous arguments! Remember that we are talking of [the] Jesus Christ of 1 Cor 1:18-31; 1 Cor 2:1-2; Col 2:15… hence Heb 10:14 and probably why the past tense is used in 1 Pet 2:24; but we must then follow Christ and not the filth of the world (Jm 1:6-8; 1 Jn 1:9-10)!

Another telling indication of the wrong in homosexuality is that the Greek words (since B.C.) that describe and define acts and aspects of homosexuality all contain in its etymology concepts such as “vulgar” and “unnatural”.  The state mankind find itself in today – and some of its laws – is due to brazen apostasy, not more Godly wisdom.  Hear Paul [God, 2 Tim 3:15-17] in Rom 1:22, 24-32. The “politically correct” should thus take serious note of Prov 17:15 and Is 5:20,23; and Scriptures such as Mk 8:35-38; Rom 1:16-32; 6:21; 2 Tim 1:7-8; 2:13-16.  Do ponder these before continuing.

Before examining this in a spiritual [Godly] sense, it must be pointed out that any human with even just a reasonable sound logic will have to admit that homosexuality is unnatural, for humans are normally [naturally] equipped with reproductive organs that can only reproduce [offspring] with the opposite gender.  Same gender “sex” amongst humans is therefore obviously unnatural, perverse and absurd; hence the connection to vulgarity in its etymology. To illustrate the desperation proponents for homosexuality resort to, can be found in examples they cite from fauna and flora as if same gender sex amongst humans is supposed to be biologically comparable and so forced to be morally sound and “natural”. This logic fails on even just three obvious counts: (1) To be consistent in this reasoning and comparison to non-human life forms that show no capacity to differentiate between morality and immorality, humans should then also revert to the cannibalism observed in these non-human life forms as well as the killing of the offspring from another competing gene pool; and the reason for this killing, ironically, is observed to be (2) so that its own genes can be reproduced in its own offspring. (3) Nowhere is fauna or flora observed to show proof of a God-conscious effort to worship their Maker/Creator. If any argument want to be read in this phenomena in nature it could therefore rather be that God’s creation teaches us that same gender sex or genderless forms can be expected from non-human creations with no God-consciousness (without a spirit), unlike humans that can introduce morality to their choices of lifestyle and conduct. Hence Paul’s explicit, categorical description of homosexuality as unnatural and vile, in Rom 1:26-27 (Rom 8:6-8) and today still manifests as Rom 1:30,32 reported (1 Cor 6:9-10). For more clarity on this dismal lack of understanding of the difference between the spirit and the soul, please refer to the meditation entitled “Body, soul and spirit of man”. The evolutionist is invited to truly deliberate the meditation entitled “Evolution” on www.gospel-truth.co.za. For those “Christians” that claim to be “homosexual Christians”, perhaps ponder the other meditations on this website as well, but note the Lord’s warning for those with feigned love (Rom 12:9; Mt 7:15-23; 15:6-9; and Gal 1:6-9 penned by the same Paul that also wrote 1 Cor 6:9-10; 1 Tim 1:10,11; 4:1,2 with Rom 12:9; and 1 Thess 4:1-8). It should be obviously ridiculous and absurd to force any acceptance of homosexuality “legally” through “rights” on the rest (1 Cor 6:1-4); even those who understand homosexuality to be a choice of an unscriptural, twisted [wicked, unnatural], vulgar lifestyle that is a shame to humanity and from The Bible a clear abomination to God.  This is what this meditation hopes to clarify (Rom 1:16-18; that continues with Rom 1:19-32…)


Quoting scripture in ignorance and confusion

Beware of people that, in a seemingly desperate effort, cite examples such as certain fabrics that were taboo then but were later seemingly – and today – accepted (Lev 19:19).  These people do this with the incredibly shallow idea that God’s abhorrence towards immorality, drunkenness, homosexuality, dishonesty or lewd behaviour then should today also be changed to what they choose it to be and will suit their choices of a profane lifestyle.  This is dim-witted as technology, clothing, fashions, rituals and even some practical customs may change over time (externalism, for example Dt 22:11; Ezek 44:15-20; or symbolically Rev 19:7-8); but the mind should always be on Christ – Rom 10:1-3; 12:1-3; 2 Cor 10:4-5; Gal 2:20; and so on.  Leviticus 19:19, for example, should rather ring a bell in the re-born Christian’s head as to God’s imprinting of what dangers lurk in mixing indiscreetly.  This is expanded on in meditations such as “Mixing Old and New” and “Unclean food” and “The Covenant and the Law” in www.gospel-truth.co.za.  Suffice for now, to point out that offerings also changed (now for us, Heb 10:14); so have clothing, certain customs, instructions on what to eat (even when).  All these were for a specific purpose for a specific people for a specific time.  The things that will never change though, for any human on earth, are God’s guidance on things such as morality, marriage, homosexuality, dishonesty, perversity, and so on.

Some in desperation even force the account of the eunuch in Acts 8:26-39, as having been “gay” and included in the family of God.  This is impossible to justify in light of Eph 5:5; 1 Cor 6:9-10 and Rom 1:24-32 alone. The Bible never uses the words homosexual and eunuch interchangeably. Furthermore, eunuchs are never referred to in Scripture as being in sin, while homosexuality is universally condemned in both the Old and New Testaments. It was common in Biblical times for rulers of conquering nations to take pre-pubescent boys from among the new subjects and castrate them. They were commonly referred to as Saris (Eunuchs). In the book of Esther referenced in Esther 1:10,12,15; 2:3,14,15; 4:4,5; 6:2,14; 7:9.

Note Heb 13:8.  Also, grasp the principles in 1 Tim 3:10,12; 4:7; 6:3-5,20-21; 2 Tim 2:23-26; 3:16-17; 4:2-4.

God clearly wanted one man to be married to one woman as long as they live, as His idea of a marriage (with its prophetic image of Christ and His Bride).  The fact that many an OT man, for example (in lust and greed), took as many wives as they thought they could handle, is not from God but by their own conceited misplaced will.

This is exactly why the Bible is distinguished from all other books.  It is a discovery of one unfolding, prophetic progressive story that culminates in God’s magnificent Love and salvation plan for us – Jesus Christ.  The meditation “The Bible” expands on this.  You have to seriously and carefully contemplate at least the crystal clear Rom 1:18-32.  Consider the reprobate mind that is hateful towards God in verses 21,22,27,28…  There is no way around this, no matter who you claim to be. So then, let’s continue with honesty and a heart receptive to God’s Spirit, shall we?

We should fill our hearts and minds with Christ[3].  The destroyer (Is 54:15) is overplaying his hand if we let him be our excuse to live a lie.  God made the destroyer to [only] destroy what is bad [distrust in God and His Word], and that destroyer is given too much scope by man (Jm 4:7) to accept his lies [thoughts] and intent to completely condemn and destroy the pinnacle of God’s creation: mankind; specifically, to destroy God’s relationship with us.

Today’s “political incorrectness” of taking God’s stance on homosexuality might be judged “harsh” and “wrong” by people out of touch with God and His guidance (Jn 4:24; Rom 8:14), but all humans together cannot override our Creator-Father’s idea and intent for His creation, especially His self-declared intent with us as humans.  The “harshness” of a conviction, if against God, can hardly be less extreme than that of those following Jesus Christ.

The claims of homosexuals that Christians exhibit “hate speech” against homosexuals are in fact the opposite and yet another manifestation of a homosexual lifestyle.  It is the homosexual community that hates [true] Christianity and its Biblical moral standards.  Beneath the “activists” rhetoric is a hatred for Christianity and The Bible as God’s Word. This hatred is none else than a spirit of Anti-Christ operating in the world (1 Jn 4:1-6 with 1 Jn 2:4 and Jn 16:1-11 with Jn 3:16-21 and Mt 19:4).

To God homosexuality is enough of a violent rebellion [abomination] against Him as a loving Father that He judged it severely by destroying Sodom and Gomorrah with elements of hell (brimstone and fire) in the Old Testament[4] to preserve humankind (Jude 1:5-8).  Even the idea of parading [dressed] as the opposite gender was taboo in the OT (Dt 22:5). Refer to Dt 23:17 as well.  The New Testament is likewise abundantly clear in even just references such as Rom 1:24-32 and Jesus’ words in Lk 17:28-30 (referring to Gen 19:1-25; Dt 29:23).  Homosexuality is plain contrary to the Gospel – Mt 19:4-9 (Heb 13:8); 1 Cor 6:9, 17-19; 7:2-5; 1 Tim 1:10,11 (4:1);1 Thess 4:4-8; Jude 7,17-19.  “Homosexuals” can repent and be saved, like all sinners, from themselves – 1 Cor 6:11; 1 Jn 1:9,10; Jn 3:16-21; 2 Cor 5:17; Phil 4:13; and so on.  The meditation “The Gospel” expands on the real good news of Jesus Christ.

God [Love] does not manipulate, and does not threaten with scare tactics of hell, but be sure of this: we choose our own destiny.  Still, see God’s grace and Love in, for example, 2 Pet 3:9; Jn 3:16-21…

The tragedy is that Jesus Christ has made provision for life abundantly, and people still distrust Him!  By the way, heaven is not a final destination (1 Thess 4:13-17; 1 Cor 15:51). Why misuse your will to rebel against Him?  Homosexuality is a choice to live a twisted [wicked] lifestyle.  People believing some were born with sexual desires for the same gender as if no choice by a human was ever involved, blatantly reject God’s Word – Rom 1:18-32; Mt 19:4-6; Eph 5:6,7 (Jn 12:48-49; 14:10,11; 2 Tim 3:15-17).  It is a choice.  How can anyone dare to try and reason away the clear idea of a “man” and a “woman” in Gen 2:24,25?  This is merely yet another rejection of the Bible as the Word of God, as seen in the religion humanism[5].

The reader might want to also peruse www.trueorigin.org and specifically the essay on scientific evidence related to homosexuality.  It argues convincingly that no “homosexual gene” exists as no scientific or medical study has thus far proven that such gene exists (and it’s highly improbable anyone ever would/could); rather can only be found that homosexuality is merely yet another chosen lifestyle – even if influenced by outside factors. The choice is simply due to exercising our God-given free will (refer also to “The will of man, the will of God” on this website). And even if our behavior could influence our DNA, would it be due to the exercising of our free will with our chosen preferences.  Homosexuality is hence a behavior based on choice(s).  It is insane to reason that God will create you in a way (give you a gene) that (a) goes against what He clearly explains as His creation-intent with/for us; and thereby (b) leave us no choice to a lifestyle that is an abomination to Him.  Please refer to the Scriptures at the end of page 1. The credibility and applicability of these Scriptures for us today are expanded on and also qualified in the meditation “The Bible” on www.gospel-truth.co.za”.

Note also, that it is not any “social right” that is at stake, but the behavior/actions of people who already have “social rights” as a human being but tries to enforce acceptance of their peculiar behavior/action/lifestyle.   TV and films try to be “politically correct” with exaggerated claims of numbers.  Typically a sitcom set with four actors will have one actor depicting a “gay” while in fact less than 1 percent of the population is really homosexual; and even so, is homosexuality clearly a vulgar rebellion against God and His creation idea. And no government can overrule God, no matter what laws they try to enforce – this they will discover finally when they meet their Maker.

Confusion is a state of mind, so you cannot trust your [or another man’s] mind (Jer 17:9; Ps 51:5; Jn 3:6; Rom 3:12,23; 5:12,19; 8:6-14; Eph 2:1) – only the Word of God (Acts 4:11-12; Eph 2:9; Phil 2:10,11; Jn 3:14).  Ps 119:104 says that through God’s precepts we get understanding and therefore should hate every false way – like He does (Rom 12:9). We therefore need a change of mind to line up with what God had/has in mind for us (Rom 12:1-3)!  We need to line up with what God our perfect heavenly Father says and have provided in Jesus Christ (Jn 1:12; 14:6; 1 Jn 2:4).  Most what is called “political correct” is none else than morally wrong, rebellion, and ignorance by cowards.  Carefully contemplate Jeremiah 23:14-16, 29-31 (1 Cor 6:9,10) with Ps 118:8; Acts 5:29; and 1 Sam 15:23.  Also read the other meditations in www.gospel-truth.co.za to find the Love of God for you.

The Bible [God] is very clear on marriage only between opposite sexes [genders].  Likewise is the Bible abundantly clear on the abomination to God of homosexuality and any sexual immorality (Even just 1 Cor 6:15-20; 10:31; 3:16).  The word “wife” appears 407 times in the Bible, always referring to the female married to her husband [a man].  “Husband” and “wife” is gender-specific, always describing a husband and wife as a man and a woman [one male with one female human being].  Contemplate Jesus’ words in Mt 19:4-6 carefully (Jn 1:14; 14:23-24).  The prophetic image of one man and one woman married in faithfulness and commitment that can produce legitimate Godly offspring from their union (Mal 2:10-17) is for us to better understand the relationship between Christ and His church [only those following His precepts – Eph 5:1-17, 23,31-32; Rev 19:7; 21:8,27.  And remember 1 Jn 2:4; Mt 7:18-23; 15:6-9 with 1 Cor 6:9-10].

Notes at Mt 19:4-6. Jesus is speaking. Verse 4 rules out Evolution completely.  Verse 5 rules out same-gender marriages completely. Verse 6 rules out sex outside a marriage completely.  Note in v6 that God does not “arrange” [pre-fix] marriages, but that He gave us a free will (See the meditation “The Will”), and with this free will He gave us as Love, we may choose our own husband or wife and that union will be “…what God joined together”.  This union is defined by God our Creator and not by the personal arrangement or politics or perceptions of any man; and hence admonish us with “… no man can put asunder” (Mt 5:33-37) – i.e. the privilege of God’s will for us to be faithfully married to one partner of the opposite gender as long as we shall live from then on, can ultimately not be overridden by man, whoever anyone claims to be.  It obviously does not mean that man cannot exercise their will to separate or get divorced or commit what is abhorrence to God as if stopping to be a free moral agent.  Of course wicked ideas on what a marriage ought to be according to a darkened mind rejecting God’s Word can sadly be what some will choose to accept as their option and conviction, but will not – and cannot – ever make it right [change God].  God is Love and anyone or anything opposing Love is in fact hate; hence Rom 12:9; 1 Jn 2:4; 4:8; and so on.

Man can therefore physically apply his will and alter his [social] status but ultimately [literally] cannot alter (put asunder) the absolute Truth [God, Jn 1:1-4,14; 8:32,36; 14:6].  This misapplication of a man’s will [choice] will then apply as in Jn 3:17-21.  i.e. Man should be prudent and not attempt to “put it asunder”, by either unfaithfulness nor by re-defining [the Godly concept and purpose of] marriage.  This God-given will, misapplied, will in effect be equal to a challenge to God and what we will ultimately do full account for – and rightly so.

A quick overview

Again, homosexuality is condemned by Scripture [an abomination to God] – Lev 18:22,24,29,30; 20:13; 1 Ki 14:24; 15:11-12; Is 1:9; Rom 1:24-32; 9:26 (Lk 8:11; Jn 3:14); 9:27-33.  Even the idea of parading [dressed] as the opposite gender – Dt 22:5.

Homosexuality is contrary to the Gospel – Mt 19:4-9; 1 Cor 6:9; 17-19; 1 Tim 1:10,11; 1 Thess 4:4-8; Jude 7,17-19.

“Homosexuals” can repent and be saved, like all sinners, from themselves – 1 Cor 6:11; 1 Jn 1:9,10; Jn 3:16-21.

Take special cognizance of the principle in Is Jn 9:31; Heb 10:26-29 (Is 1:10-20; Jer 6:19-20; Prov 15:8-9; 28:9; 1 Cor 3:17,6:19-20; Mt 7:15-23; 15:6-9).

Further thoughts

Next, an excerpt from the meditation “Counseling and Delivering Ministries” on www.gospel-truth.co.za.

A missing chemical or a missing Seed?

When we trust the world’s knowledge on a subject, the result will be anxiety [fear, unbelief]; when we trust our Creator-Father-God’s knowledge on a subject, the result will be peace[6] and joy.

Most, if not all, conditions of illness [body, soul, and spirit], probably originate from the same source.  Symptoms are not causes; and symptoms might be hurt, depression, despondency, despair, hopelessness, condemnation, unworthiness, and so on.  All these are feelings [self-centred emotion, part of soul].  Jesus came to set us free from this self.  All these feelings are actually caused by a spirit of rejection.  Before reading further, grasp Phil 3:9.

Consider Eph 6:12-18.  We must realize that this is about a spiritual warfare against evil spirits manifested in thoughts.  Refer to Is 54:13-17; and Rom 12:1-3,14,19[7].  Consider the possibility that “principalities” are actually principal principles that rule your thought-life (2 Cor 10:5; Heb 12:2; Eph 4:23)!  Remember that, especially negative thought, is part of the soul that is self-centred.  All confusion is in the mind, and therefore you cannot trust the mind – not yours or anybody else’s mind that is not in Christ; you can ultimately only absolutely trust the Word of God, not your emotional self.   If you have all in the world, but you do not have Jesus Christ, you have nothing still.  On the other Hand, if you have nothing except Jesus Christ, you have all (Jn 1:1-5; Col 1:13-17).

When you feel rejected (Heb 13:5! Rom 3:3-6; Jm 4:1-5), the natural reaction is an effort to compensate for this offense taken [hurt].  The spirit so invited, is called a spirit of rebellion.  Rebellion has many forms and disguises.  Remember Eph 6:12 and Col 2:15; Jn 16:33; and so on – just keep standing in absolute trust in the Word of God, Jesus Christ.  Bear in mind that God probably view a hardened heart the same as witchcraft because of the element of manipulative will power and control (1 Sam 15:23).  God is Love and never manipulates, and so should we be (Rom 8:14,15).

When we feel rejected, in rebellion, will we try to fight for love [force acceptance]; and will we try to grasp at alternatives offered by this fowl spirit.  Out of this rebellion comes promiscuity, lust, basically all efforts to buy the lie of a sufficient substitute in traps like alcohol, drugs, pornography, sensuality, empire-building, homosexuality…  The mind perceives [accepts the lie of] a Spirit-Word rejecting us and so offers an alternative in the carnal, or sensual realm.  Perceived rejection from the opposite gender can be generalized, in self-insecurity, and so the twisted “attraction” to the same gender seems to be a safe, “inborn”, even natural alternative.  This is of course a lie from Satan.  Jesus Christ [God] will never reject any man if that man is following His Voice, His invitation and His precepts (Ps 23; 139; Jn 3:16; Rom 5:8-11; 2 Pet 3:9; Heb 13:5), He gave us a free will so that He can choose those who choose Him out of free will, and because He could know beforehand who this would be, He called us “pre-elect”.  So this feeling [lie] of rejection caused rebellion, and that make us reach for self-destructive alternatives (Is 5:18).  Note. Not all humans are children [followers, saved] of God just because they are His design [creation]! God is Love and let us choose whether we want to actually be His children [followers] or not – Rom 8:14; Jn 1:12!…

All these alternatives that Satan has on offer are extreme, perverted and part of the law of diminutive return.  The more you try [invest by own effort as a means to stimulate self], the less you get out [only end up with feelings of guilt, inferiority, condemnation, frustration, depression, etc.].  The point the devil wants to get people to, is the point where you become insensitive to the Word of God, and so stop caring – from this point onwards, addiction and hopelessness [submission] is reached.

False dogma

It is absolutely astonishing how even supposed preachers [“theologians”] misquote the Word of God.  They want to argue [in vain] about a clear description of what “homosexuality” (sodomy) implies.  Look at these two examples:

“… But before they lay down, the men of the city of Sodom, both young and old, all the men from every quarter, surrounded the house.  And they called to Lot and said, Where are the men who came to you tonight?  Bring them to us, that we may know[8] them.  And Lot went out to the door to the men and shut the door after him and said, I beg of you, my brothers, do not act so wickedly.  Look now, I have two daughters who are virgins; let me, I beg of you, bring them out to you, and you can do as you please with them.  But they…”.  Read Gen 19 and try again.

“…  For God’s holy wrath and indignation are revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who in their wickedness repress and hinder the truth and make it inoperative.  For ever since the creation of the world His invisible nature and attributes, that is, His eternal power and divinity, have been made intelligible and clearly discernable in and through the things that have been made (His handiworks).  So men are without excuse because when they knew and recognized Him as God, they did not honor and glorify Him as God or give Him thanks.  But instead they became futile and godless in their thinking [with vain imaginings, foolish reasoning, and stupid speculations] and their senseless minds were darkened.  Claiming to be wise, they became fools [professing to be smart, they made simpletons of themselves]…  Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their own hearts to sexual impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves…  For this reason God gave them over and abandoned them to vile affections and degrading passions.  For their woman exchanged their natural function for an unnatural and abnormal one, and the men also turned from natural relations with woman and were set ablaze with lust for one another – men committing shameful acts with men and suffering in their own bodies and personalities the inevitable consequences and penalties of their wrongdoing and going astray. Which was their fitting retribution.  And so, since they did not see fit to acknowledge God or approve of Him or consider Him worth the knowing, God gave them over to a base and condemned mind to do things not proper or decent but loathsome…”  Rom 1:18-24,26-28.

To reason “homosexual” out of 1 Cor 6:9-10 (arsĕnŏkŏitēs, even malakŏs in context), is plain hard-headedness[9]; and any false teacher or preacher should seriously consider even just Jer 23:14 (then verses 9 to 40 as well) and know that God cannot be outsmarted or made an accomplice to wickedness (1 Cor 3:17-20; Rev 21:8).


Who [what] you are, are not determined by circumstances [external influences], people’s opinions, etc.  Your happiness and reaction to anything around you are formed by your own choices in how to deal with your external factors.  Then, God can declare who you chose to be.  (See the meditation “God’s Will”).  If God’s Spirit was in you [by your acceptance and invite], you will activate and [be able to] prove what is said in 1 Jn 4:4 and 2 Cor 5:14-21 to be true.  And remember that God looks at your heart like no one else can (1 Sam 16:7).  You might act contrary to God’s intention because of your own decision.  Your free will is proof of God’s genuine love – given by Him – for you.    Jesus Christ is God’s Revelator, His face [God’s true nature and character] you can see and live – read His Words in John 1:9-12; 14:6,15; 15:14 and Rom 8:14.  Now please see Revelation 21:8 and note that those liars are mentioned in 1 John 2:4,22 and 2 John 1:7.  Also contemplate, and consider the principle, the teaching, in 1 Tim 4.

With 2 Tim 3:16,17 and Gal 1:11,12 in mind, note that God created man [male] and woman [female] with no “in-between”, and commanded them [us] to be fruitful and multiply (Gen 1:26-28).  Think about it:  God alone is the Giver [Creator] of life [immortal and eternal].  The devil, on the other hand, is the destroyer, thief, liar and murderer (Jn 10:10).  By the way, “commandments” in Ps 112:1-3 is not “The 10 commandments” [rules given to them (Rom 9:4) in the desert to show self-righteousness cannot save anyone – Gal 3:19; 5:4,18; Rom 3:20-28]; but means His teaching, His precepts, His Voice (Jn 10:27,28; 14:15-17,21-27; 1 Jn 2:4; and so on).  He is Jesus Christ (Jn 1:14).  Consider the meditations “Who is Jesus Christ?”, “Marriage” and “The Image of God” by this author as well, if you will.  God and His Kingdom are not what most “churches” teach and certainly not what most governments proclaim!

We have to wake up!  “Homosexuality” is the consequence of rebellion against God as a perfect Father, the refusal to accept God’s plan for your life.  No man can be his own god and think he will save himself through his religion or by following rules and laws (Rom 3:20; Gal 5:4,18).  This false notion that “being a good person” will give you [an] eternal life with God Who created you, is ridiculous.  Only the Blood of Jesus Christ on His cross can save and internally change you if you follow His teachings.  Only when your spirit is re-born, will you renew your mind [soul].  You should know that the spirit, soul and body are separate entities (1 Thess 5:23).  The soul is self-centered with emotion, intellect and will; while the spirit is God-centered.  The soul (personality) needs the body to express itself, and is probably why all those saved souls who have departed, will get their bodies back – they have lost it!  Will you?

All good morals originate with God, Who is the Source of all good (Jm 1:17).  And by the way, accepting Jesus only to avoid hell, is not the “destination” of a [true] Christian – a deepening, continuous, habitual personal relationship with Jesus as Savior and Lord is closer to the goal (1 Cor 6:9-10,15-20; 2 Cor 6:14-18).  God never wanted religion [tradition, rituals, or ceremony], but He wants creation to see you are His child.  God is a Person, not “a force”.  The Creator is bigger than His creation, and you were given an intellect.  This means God must be the Source of intellect and creativity – a Person.  If His Spirit can be grieved, He must be a Person (Is 63:10; Acts 5:3,4); Jesus Christ is Love, He is Sovereign.  He sets you free.  The Father is a Person, The Son is a Person, the Holy Spirit is a Person – He never changes – that is why we can always trust Him, and sin can never be part of Him.  You will never get God to be an accomplice to your wicked ideas, and to take offense [ignore Him] when your Source of Love, Life and Light speaks to you, is to self-destruct.

If you have/had a problem [past wounding] with your father/mother as a child, don’t misplace/project this on God as a perfect Father!  Neither fear of failing in a normal Godly relationship.  God already released a blessing to you in Jesus Christ long ago (Eph 1:3-13; 2 Pet 1:2-12)!  The meditations called “Image of God” and “Marriage” discusses the nature and character of God and the role of parents.

See how a fruit of the Spirit (Gal 5:16-24), “joy” (Neh 8:10b!), was twisted (Jn 8:41-47).   “Gay” actually means “joy” or “happy”.  But this “joy” is now removed to mean “stop reproducing or reflecting the prophetic image of Jesus Christ and His Bride”, in other words, be “homosexual”!?  Statistics show that up to 55% of so-called “homosexuals” either attempt, consider, or commit suicide at some stage or another.  And this is “gay” [joy]?  That joy is supposed to be the result [fruit] of answered prayers because you say what God has said all along (Jn 15).

Another telling fact is that many male “homosexuals” act roles of a woman – and many then deny it.  Most exhibit a forced speech and mannerisms. This shows it is twisted and unnatural [sick]!  Face up to it and change like the prodigal son did (Lk 15:11-32.  This teaches a principle, it is not implying this son was homosexual!).

Any honest reader claiming to honor and obey God cannot read any of the following Scriptures and claim ignorance or rebellion against God’s idea [institution, will] of one man + one woman = marriage: Contemplate Gen 1:27; 2:24; 3:8,17,20,21; 4:1,17,25 (note they could bear children); 6:18; 7:7,13; 8:16,18; then Jesus as the Word of God (Jn 1:12-4) in Mt 19:4-6; Mk 10:6-9 (remember Jn 16:9); 1 Cor 5:5-13; 7:2-39 (especially note vv. 2 and 10); Eph 5:23,31-32 with Rev 19:7 and 21:9; also note I Tim 3:2,12; Titus 1:6; and so on.  It is abundantly clear and NO human government or man-appointed authority may put God or God’s word aside (Eph 5:10-33; Phil 2:8-11,15-16).


The Bible is one, progressive, unfolding revelation of God’s salvation-plan [initiative].  No one completely knew God as perfect heavenly Father, until Jesus Christ revealed this awesome Truth.  Jesus Christ gave us the Bible [Jn 14:6,26] as one, unfolding revelation of the greatest and purist love story in the entire universe:  that of a Bridegroom and His Bride [Church], a Father and His children.  Marriage is instated by God to be a prophetic image to the world [authority, love, care, faithfulness and commitment, unity, purpose, respect, safety, to produce Godly offspring].  Nations fall apart when family units fall apart, and vice versa.  You can trust God that this is true.

The good news, however, is that all “homosexuals” can change their mind, like all sinners, and accept Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  And please, take note that insanity is defined by thinking the same way and acting the same way while expecting a different result.  “Re-born” means your spirit is born anew from above from God (Jn 1:12,13; 2 Cor 5:17).  Contemplate Rom 12:9 carefully.  You can try to bluff cowards and false Christians, but you are wasting your time if you think you are in any way bluffing God or true Christians (Jn 14:15).

Change your mind to align with what God revealed in Jesus Christ – true sonship.  How to be a child of God in power, light, and life.

Peace, love and joy to you, in Jesus’ name!

Also, the meditation called “Judging” by the author; that will show how lying spirits – as a last resort – will attempt to get help away from you by accusing the teacher/helper to be “judging”.  You have to be informed and be able to distinguish between you having made your own choice that is self-destructive; and that of someone pointing out [observing, identifying, “judging”] the obvious to you in love [to help you].  If you still adamantly claim a Christian cannot judge, try for a start the following Scriptures: 2 Tim 1:7; 3:16-17; 4:2-4; Rev 21:7-8… even the meditation entitled “Judging”?

Note.  Even Scriptures such as Jer 23:9-14,17, will warn against false prophets.  Perhaps consider the meditation “Hearing God’s Voice” as well.

[1] Upstage refers to the back of a stage, and the egotistical effort of one actor to get the attention focused on them by moving to the back (upstage) so that the other actor has to play facing away from the audience; even to do something out of character or out of line to spite the producer or other players; in essence with similar results when “cutting your nose to spite your face”.

[2] Gen 1:26-28.  A man [male], a woman called wife [female] to be able to multiply and have godly offspring (Mal 2:7-17).

[3] Jn 14:23-29; Eph 1:22,23; 2:18-23; 4:12; 5:32; Col 1:24; 1 Pet 2:5; 1 Cor 3:9,16; 2 Cor 10:5-7; 2 Tim 4:1-4…

[4] Carefully consider Gen 19.  Sodomy means the men of Sodom saw other men and wanted sex with [the visiting] men.

[5] See the meditation entitled “Evolution” (Darwinism) by the author.

[6] Col 3:15-17; 1:13-19; Phil 4:6-8; Eph 4:5-10,14-22; 1 Cor 3:10,11…

[7] Rom 5:9!; 1Thess 5… Jesus took all God’s wrath in making peace between God and man – the vengeance is His!

[8] This means “to be intimate with”, as in Gen 4:1 where “Adam knew his wife, and she became pregnant and bore Cain…

[9] 1 Cor 6:9-10 list people who will not inherit the kingdom of God. Among them are listed the “effeminate” (G3120, μαλακός, malakos), which is explained in the Greek Concordance as of uncertain affinity, catamite, soft, effeminate.  The Webster Comprehensive Dictionary, international edition, gives the meaning of “effeminate” for a man as “unmanly”.  If cowardice is the issue, refer to the first on the list in Rev 21:8; also 2 Tim 1:7; Rom 1:16-18; Heb 10:38.  Even so, in context, can “unmanly” [sexually immoral] behaviour for a man here – eventually – hardly point to something else than homosexuality – and a true Christian’s stance regarding it.  Read in context with just Rom 1:26-27, can we with certainty, not catachresis as prognosticators of homosexuality want to assert, but with absolutely correct conviction accept these warnings apply to none else than homosexuality. Observe the prophetic image of a man [husband, father] (1 Cor 11:3; Eph 1:17-23; 4:12-25; 5:32).  Then, mentioned next of people in 1 Cor 6:9 that will not inherit the kingdom of God, are reiterated those of both genders as “abusers of themselves with mankind” (G733, ἀρσενοκοίτης, arsenokoitēs). The Greek concordance states that this means “an abuser of [that defiles] self with mankind; i.e. a Sodomite.  This is from G730 (ἄῤῥην, αρσην, arrhēn arsēn; probably from G142, αἴρω, airō, by implication to also take or figuratively keep in suspense; specifically in context, to do away with). Thus, men that “turn away from women and unnaturally towards other men’ and likewise women who “turn away from men and unnaturally towards other woman” [opposing God’s intent, gender design].  The meaning of arsenokoitēs is thus clearly pointing to homosexuality as the very meaning of Sodomy dictates.  Hence the “vile affections”, “unnatural use” “burning in lust” towards the same gender… “unseemly”… as described in Rom 1:24-32.
