As of late, it has been the trend among some evangelical mega-churches and political conservatives to tip toe around the issue of same gender sexual relationships with a sinful “tolerance” in order to avoid offending members of the LGBTQ community. Recently, television personality Montel Williams chastised conservatives for discriminating against this group, saying that the book of Galatians warns against this in verses twenty six through twenty eight of the third chapter of the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Galatia.
26 So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, 27 for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
The problem with this quotation of scripture is that it doesn’t address the issue of sexual sin. Sexual activity outside of marriage is not acceptable to engage in. It is sin. Scripture from the books of Leviticus and Romans makes it crystal clear that same gender sexual activity is an abomination in the sight of the Lord, and that continual engagement in such activity will result in one being left by the Spirit of the Lord to his or her own depraved mind. In order to draw closer to God, one must follow the directives of the Holy Spirit. It is only a matter of time before one engaging in homosexual practices who claims to be a follower of The Original Light: The Great I Am and a lover of the commands and ways of our Lord Jesus will be confronted with this violation of God’s Law by the Holy Spirit. Failure to comply with a directive given by the Holy Spirit eventually does result in a falling away from the face and grace of The Original Light: The Great I Am.
