“Our sexually perverse society has scrambled our perceptions. To be fair, our perceptions have long been scrambled. Historians trace it all the way back to the beginning of the Industrial Age when husbands spent a great deal of time away from home working in factories to support their families, leaving women in charge. Women were most present in church and, as might be expected, ended up “redecorating” churches, so to speak. They made them more “gentle,” more “sensitive,” more emotional.”
(Winging It) The Homosexual Debate – I’ve done some of this before, so I’m pretty sure some of my readers are gearing up to do battle with me regarding the clear statements from Scripture about how homosexual behavior is sin. Relax….
I’m not going there. I’ve often spent no small amount of time discussing words and their changing meanings, often into oblivion. Words like “marriage”. Nope, not going there this time, either. This time it’s someplace a little different.
I was reading along in 1 Corinthians and came across the well-known text:
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God. (1 Cor 6:9-11 NASB)
Note: The author’s title is “The Homosexual Debate.” CRN changed the title.
