In light of the current events taking place in Houston, Texas, we will be addressing the issue of homosexuality. One of the overarching issues is that Houston is under the leadership of a woman, who is openly living in sin as a lesbian. Regardless of what laws are passed, the laws of man will NEVER supersede the laws of God.
ALL forms of sexual practices outside the bounds of one man and one woman united in matrimony are a perversion and go against the standards that God ordained back in the Garden of Eden. This standard was then reiterated by the words of the Lord Jesus Christ during His earthly ministry.
Fellow believers, remember that regardless of what happens here on this earth that truth and right will ultimately prevail. Our God reigns victorious and evil will be totally defeated. It also does not matter what the Catholic church or any other denomination says in support of homosexuality and lesbianism, it is still and will always remain wrong.
For those who are not believers, there is still time to confess and repent of your sin and fall upon the tender mercies and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Despite what you may have done or what sin you are involved with, you can plead for mercy that is given ONLY because of the shed blood of the Lord Jesus on the cross of Calvary.
For the record, we do not hate homosexuals, lesbians, etc. but we do stand on the Word of God as our guide. We desire those living, practicing, and/or desiring such a life-style to come to a place in their lives where they know the peace that passes all understanding. This goes not just for those who are violating the Scriptures in the sin of sexual perversion, but is for any and all who think they can violate the commands of God and still have a right standing before God.
The link below is a great place to start if you have questions about this issue. It addresses part of the heart issues at stake and that is the question – “Is Same Sex Attraction Sinful?”

Lev. 18:24-19:1 is by implication addressed to all peoples for all of time. It is clear that all such sexual acts are always and forever an abomination.
Jesus said that all peoples are either with Him or they are against Him.
The antichrist is most certainly against Him.
Those not with Christ are with the antichrist by logical extension.
Not everyone who says to me Lord Lord will enter into My Fathers kingdom, but he who does the will of My Father Matt. 7:21
Jesus said that those who love Him keep His commands.
Jesus commanded us to live by every word of God which includes the Lev. 18:24 passage.
Just as we cannot love both God and mammon, neither can we love both God and postmodern tolerance.
Post moderns abuse the logical fallacy known as a non-sequiter, (it does not follow)
Two examples are. Jesus never spoke directly against it therefore it is ok.
You cant select which Mosaic laws to obey or to ignore today.
Both argument are easily refuted.
Not one person in Heb. 11 is listed in there for being lukewarm. The great hero’s of faith like righteous Noah, Job and Daniel are not listed or magnified because they yielded to or compromised with the world or the things of the world.
