So, we ask you this question, why should the black church consider civil rights issues any longer? What permission does the homosexual community have from God to use civil rights as an excuse to affirm such an evil lifestyle of lust? The issue of civil rights is being taken advantage of and was only needed black church during the times of extreme racial division in this country of America. During the era of inequality in America civil rights in the black church was possibly allowed by God to draw the black race unto repentance, definitely not to be drawn to sin along with the descendants of the slave masters who enslaved their ancestors.
God's Scriptures Against Homosexuality
- Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."
- 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
- Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads."
- Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."
