The valley in the Dead Sea was filled with pits of tar 16. Sodom Sodom was told to be an evil place with many people working against god and so god sent 2 angels down to evaluate the situation
Prohibition laws relating to sexual activity between men can be dated back to the Bible. A paragraph in Levictus best describes the views of the time, by stating the act of sodomy to be an ‘abomination’.
In Leviticus 18 the rules of sexual conduct are expressed to the Israelites, in closing they are instructed, “keep these or the land will surely vomit you out.” God cares deeply about the sexual ethics of His people. However, because all people are created in the image of God with innate rights and dignity then it is reasonable to suggest that God does not just care about the sexual ethics of His redeemed people, but all people through His creator-created relationship with them.
Sodom and Gomorrah are Biblical cities in the book of Genesis that were destroyed by God for the evils the people in them were involving themselves with. God turned them into ashes and condemned them to destruction to be an example to anyone living ungodly afterwards. This action would act
Does the Bible really condemn homosexuality? The Bible really does condemn homosexuality. Romans 1: 24-27 says, “And the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error (Holy Bible, NIV).” In this verse, it clearly states that the men who gave up loving women and started having relations with other men will receive the due penalty for their error. It was not in God’s design to have people of the same sex to have relations. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 says those who practice these kind of acts will not inherit the kingdom of God. These verses prove that the Bible condemns homosexuality.
In Leviticus chapter 18, God is instructing Moses regarding His law and giving certain ordinances against unlawful sexual conduct. There are several deviances that the Lord forbade in His instructions to Moses, all of which are outlined specifically in Leviticus 18. Some of these ungodly sexual practices were things such as incest, adultery, homosexuality, and fornication. Unfortunately, these things are increasingly present in this modern age, a time in which sin is becoming more and more ramped by the day. Homosexuality is being promoted as a trend among the media, things such as pre-marital sex and fornication is on the rise and even promoted, and committing adultery is seen as acceptable in certain circumstances. To begin His rules against such practices, God calls
Christianity has strict regulations when it comes to sex. According to the bible sex is an act of procreating between a married man and women. The definition does not stray from that and it is not flexible. Any other type of sex is deemed a sin. Sexuality can be related to gender or how someone identifies themself, for example homosexual or heterosexual. Sex is more than just an act, it can be ones desire, behavior, or identity. It also provides a system of power, rules for living, and regulates our behavior. Recently there have been attempts to broaden Christianity to accept homosexuals but the movement is still slow. Monsignor Krysztof Olaf Charamsa announced that he was a homosexual to the Vatican, and lost his position. This shows how even religious figures can be gay and Christianity is not broadening its beliefs to include homosexuals, it is merely rejecting them.
If God wanted people to be homosexual, he would have created Adam and Steve not Adam and Eve. He would have also made it be possible for the same genders to have
Nearly every action in Abraham's life shows his great faith in God. He left his country and countrymen, He believed the promise of a son though such a birth was naturally impossible, He was even willing to offer Isaac, the son of promise, when God demanded it. Because of his great faith, he enjoyed the victory of faith (Gen. 22:12).
Known as a great representation of biblical faith, Abraham defines faith throughout the latter part of his life. The definition of faith is, “A firm belief in something or someone for which there may be no tangible proof; complete trust,” also, “A loving trust, calculated risk, and an ongoing process with seasons of darkness and doubt.” (Fairchild) Abraham chooses to follow God willingly and with unwavering faith.
Homosexuality is clearly condemned in the Bible. It undermines God 's created order when He made Adam and Eve, a man and a woman, to carry out His command to
Matthew 19 or Mark 10, Leviticus 18, Romans 1, 1 Timothy, there are scores of references to homosexual behaviors in the Bible, not a one of them
Relationships with God in Genesis and Persepolis From the beginning of Genesis, Abraham always showed unwavering devotion to God and his word, not even doubting him when he was told to kill his own son. Abraham never lost his faith in God, and willingly followed his guidance in order to
The story of Abraham and his descendants is found in the book of Genesis. When we first meet Abraham, he was in Genesis chapter 11, although at this stage his name is Abram. This is a polytheistic age, an age when people believed in and worshipped many gods. Paul noted that Abraham’s belief was unhampered by the fact that he was almost a hundred years old; he was not weak in faith. He was strong in faith. Faith is a deep conviction that God’s words are true, and that God will perform all that he promises. Abraham simply believed that God would do what he said. For this Melchizedek, king of Salem, priest of the Highest God, who met Abraham as he was returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him, now it came about after these things, that God tested Abraham, and said to him, "Abraham!" And he said, "Here I am." Now observe how great this man was to whom Abraham, the patriarch, gave a tenth of the choicest spoils (Genesis 22:1). As we all know families have their ups and downs nobody is perfect and if the family is perfect then something is wrong and needs to be evaluated.
WHY GAY MARRIAGE IS WRONG Advocates of homosexual practice often argue that “gay marriage,” or at least homosexual civil unions, will reduce promiscuity and promote fidelity among homosexual persons. Such an argument overlooks two key points. “Gay Marriage” as a Contradiction in Terms
