BUT what does God say?

Well Miley Cyrus chimed in on the subject of gay marriage according to this news acticle "Miley Cyrus gives gay marriage her blessing" So we know what she thinks, BUT what does the God say?

Does God give His blessing? I  don't think so -not from what the Bible actually says.

Another news report had Miley saying we are all God's children, but the Bible makes it clear we are NOT all God's children. The only ones who are God's children are the ones who have repented of their sin and trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour. John 1:12, says, "But as many as received him (Jesus), to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name. That is the ONLY way to become the child of God - believe on the Lord Jesus Christ as your Saviour.

I can't say whether, Miley is a Christian, I do know she spoke without knowledge of what the word of God says though.

God makes it clear over and over in the Bible, homosexuality is a sin.

Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Some will say that is Old Testament so lets see what God has recorded in the New Testament -

Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
 23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
 29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
 30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
 31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
(KJV)

That is the time we are living in. Many people do not want God in their knowledge. They want Him out of their schools, their government, their lives. The result is what we have today  - a society that doesn't know right from wrong, where violence is increasing along with vile sexual sins - a society where the people become nothing more than animals. Paul said in that passage those who do those sins were worthy of death. Read it again and see the different sins mentioned. I am not saying homosexuality is the worse sin in the world - it is a sin though, just as adultry, fornication, drunkeness, murder, theft, pride, idolatry. They are all sins and must be repented of for a person to be right with God.

Does God love the homosexual? Yes. He loves the person, but He hates their sin. He loves all of us in that He made ONE way, One glorious, wonderful way for each and everyone of us sinners to escape the condemnation of our sin and an eternity in Hell separated from Him, ONE way to be reconciled to Him and our sin forgiven.  That way is through the Lord Jesus Christ.

Jesus took all our sin, whether lying, homosexuality, pride, false religion,(all of it is bound up in the sin of unbelief) and He took it all, and He took our punishment for our sin. He suffered in our place, shedding His blood that our sin could be washed away and we could be reconciled to God. He died in our place. On the 3rd day after His death and burial, He arose, bodily alive in victory over sin, death, Hell and satan. Jesus will save all who will turn from their sin, and their way and trust Him to be their Saviour.

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
 9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him.
 10 For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

1John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

What I hate most about Miley speaking out without knowing what she is talking about is that she has a lot of influence over young girls and now many of them who do not have the influence of truth in their lives will just believe since she thinks it is okay - it must be okay. How sad.

You have the choice today - who are you going to believe - society, this world, tv stars and pop idols or God and His Word? What will you do with the gift of salvation that God offers you today? Will you throw it away or receive it with thankfulness and joy?

Not surprised at all by her support of gay marriage. Most Hollywood elitists support the immorality of this vile behavior. Sad that she has such a strong following.

Hi Kerri thanks for visiting..

You have the point and I am oppose into gay marriage per se. But I do believe that we are all God's children. God is so forgiving that even those who refuses to believe the truth, He considers His sons... But of course in order for the people to be truly children of God, we have to obey what He says!

Rose, I appreciate your view, but I do not believe it agrees with what the Bible says. The Bible says we become the child of God by receiving Jesus Christ, that is trusting Him by faith as our only Saviour. Works will not get us into Heaven, ONLY having Jesus as our Saviour will do that. Some people think that if they believe Jesus lived, died for the sins of the world and arose and then they go to church and keep the commandments of the church they will be okay, but it has to be personal. Most of us know about George Washington historically, but we do not know Him personally. Each of us must know Jesus personally to be saved. Each person has to realize Jesus died for them personally and that only by coming to Him in faith and trusting Him alone as their way of Salvation, not adding works, can they be saved. Then they are the child of God.
For more on salvation you might want to scroll down to March 26th entry and read it - it talks about why we aren't good enough and need HIM.
