“THE MARK OF A DOOMED SOCIETY”-V
Homosexuality When Accepted By A Society Destroys All Fear of God in That Society!
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.” Jude 7
“But these as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not, and shall utterly perish in their own corruption…” (2nd Peter 2:12)
After Lot had been warned by the angels that God was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, he went to his sons-in-law and said, “Up, get you out of this place: for the Lord will destroy this city.” However the Bible says concerning their response, ” ... But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons-in-law.” (Genesis 19:14) No doubt they had a good laugh, talked about the old man being senile, and went on their way without a care in the world. So much of the sin of Sodomy in our days, that people have no longer any fear for what the Bible says! ” Fools make a mockery of Sin!” laughing at sinful sights and being synthesized to it!
That righteous man-Lot, vexed his righteousness soul day after day with the unlawful deeds of Sodom. It is sad that as one who is backslidden he had no testimony at all before his children, but even worse that his sons-in-law had no fear of God. The responses of those men were typical of all the inhabitants of those cities of the plain. They had no fear of God, they had no remorse for their sins, they had not thought of judgment. And how true when the Bible says, “…. they had no fear of God before their eyes..” (Romans 3:18)
“ They walk after the flesh in the lust of uncleanness…..” Their whole life is the flesh- the sensual desire for uncleanness. It is as though they are set on fire of Hell! The Bible says that “ they are presumptuous”, which means daring! they are bold in their sins!! “Whatever I want, whatever I choose, the self-life is the one that I serve! Whatever pleases me, whatever brings pleasure to me; It is my self-will that matters and nothing else!!” Their darkness has become a way of life; and their shadowy existence is the way they want to live! they want no dignified life- no light! In their sight everybody that has a dignity must be brought down and be destroyed verbally!!
Have you ever imagined in your life time that language will stoop to such a low lever? The filthy gutter languages that you hear coming out of peoples lips, even some very young ones? A man lusting after another man? A man lusting after a young boy? Can you imagine the filthy things that were heard and seen on the streets of Sodom? The Display of flesh; no shame; no blush; out in the open!! They have yielded their body and mind to this evil and abominable behavior! the Bible says these are “brute beasts, not like human beings but like wild animals. The Bible also says, “….. as they count it pleasure to riot in the day time.” In other words they have lost all SHAME!! It is not darkness anymore; they once lived in the shadow, they tried to hide, but no more! ” no more hiding for me; you either accept it or else; I am not changing!” They have emboldened, they have become militants!! Today the opposition of the Sodomites against Bible Christians has turned to open rebellion.
Now this attitude is completely consistent with the teaching of the Bible as it is found in Romans chapter One. Three times it says in this chapter God gave these people up. First, to “uncleanness,” Second, to “vile affection” and third to, ” reprobate mind.” It is horrible to think about the fact that there are people in the world even today that God has given up! Now we say that people have a choice:they make a choice, ” I choose to, and I choose not to”; but in the case of this abominable behavior it becomes such a monster inside that you hear them say, ” I can’t help myself! I just can’t stop it!” and the Bible says, such people are ,”having their eyes full of adultery. And can not cease from sin.” These people gave themselves to fornication! That is all they lived for! it became such a fire burning inside and that’s all they lived for! All they want is strange flesh that did not belong to them!
Yet the fact remains. The thought here is not that God cannot or will not save the homosexual if he repents of his sin. Yes God can break that bondage and set the victim free those who are taken captive of Satan at his will! However the thought is that a person can become so enmeshed in this sin that they will get to such a state that they cherish their sin and have no desire to repent! When the person reaches that state they will lose all remorse for sin, they stifle the accusations of the conscience, and they lose the fear of God! When men have a light attitude toward God, they will have a light attitude toward sin!
He Who Fears God Has Nothing else To Fear!!

How to be Saved …and KNOW it – your most important stop on this site.
The Bible reveals two ways which people are following to get into heaven. One way, the true way, is God’s way. God’s way into heaven is the way of peace and truth and righteousness. It is the only way approved of God. This way centers in the Lord Jesus Christ who said: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6). The Bible declares that there is another way. “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” (Prov. 14:12).
There are so many popular ways today filled with lost multitudes all over the land, such as the way of morality, the way of respectability, the way of religion, the way of churchianity, the way of baptism, the way of christening, the way of confirmation, the way of penance, the way of confession, the way of “doing the best I can”, the way of self, the way of education, the way of philosophy, the way of false isms and cults that crowd the street. Little wonder then when we speak to people about the way of salvation, that so many have asked, “How can I know which is the true way? There are so many different ideas and so many religions.”
But there is ONE difference between God’s way of salvation and man’s way, and that difference is found in a Person, the Lord Jesus Christ. You will notice that man leaves Christ out of the center of his way. You will discover that the modern false cults and isms demote Christ to a mere man and add something to what He has already done for your salvation and mine. We become children of God through a supernatural birth. Jesus said to Nicodemus: “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). Jesus also said, “Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again” (John 3:7)
