In this era, we cannot understand the minds of some African Americans whom come out of the closet as gays and lesbians. If President George Bush was still in office, we don't think we would hear of such liberation and pride. Think about what we mentioned before, if Bush was still the president and if he would have been the one to approve of gay marriage, in our opinion, there would not be so many black celebrities or even average people coming out of the closet.
Saints of God, it really doesn't matter to us if a person is a homosexual, because we really have so many other souls to save. If this is what they want, then go for it. God gave us a free will to serve Him, except-if we ignore these following commandments we will have to answer to Him.
Getting back to so much pride among some black celebrities and followers within the black community, it would be so wonderful to hear them say, 'I'm coming out as a saved person' or 'born again Christian'. Why is it so important for everyone to know your sexual preference? Let us ask you this one question, have these same people made an announcement to God on their knees? Because if they cannot do that much, then we really just don't want to hear it. Let us ask you another question, why aren't so many coming out as transsexuals? Not so popular, hugh?
In the meantime, we will keep NBA celebrity, Jason Collins in our prayers and sincerely hopes he finds more time to focus on other things, then sharing his sexual preference, like some other celebrities.
Biblical Scriptures against Homosexuality
- 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 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable."
- 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."
- 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."
