Homosexual lobby groups make great claims for same sex joy.  We desire to help you fully enjoy this life and also the next.  God offers us every happiness in this life and shows us how to live to achieve this.  Consider these things.

 

The pursuit of happiness

ss_illus

Homosexuals and lesbians, like other people, seek for joy and fulfillment in their relationships. But same sex couples, like some heterosexuals find that despite their efforts, true lasting joy and fulfillment is an illusion; it's like a mirage on the horizon, a pot of gold at the end of a rainbow that cannot be reached. Maybe it will come next week, maybe it will come next year,ss_disil maybe if it gets recognised in law. It's always a bit out there.

Not every homosexual is miserable,
a few exceptions exist  more ...

 

 

Deception

Same sex = less life
Compared with hetrosexual lifestyles, many studies reveal that  same-sex lifestyles reduce life expectancy by 10 to 20 years!

Have you ever stopped to think "where did the idea come from, that same sex people could ever obtain fulfillment and joy with their chosen lifestyle"? The world around us keeps telling another story.ss_bio_an Same sex relations are unnatural and people who engage in them are miserable, have multiple health issues, die sooner and do not reproduce. This last fact shows that new people in each generation get caught in this deception; without this, the practice would be extinct in one generation. Where does this deception originate? The Bible provides the answer.

 

Nothing new

It is the same deception that Satan used to fool Eve after God created the world. God created Adam and Eve with the perfect marriage and placed them in a perfect garden in a perfect world. Then Satan attacked Eve's thought process with a number of questions and part-truths. Satan sowed the idea into Eve's head that God lied about the death penalty... the serpent said to the woman, "You will not surely die.
.                             Genesis 3:4
; and that God was not totally good. Maybe God was holding back Eve's development? ss_trus1The evil idea given to Eve was that if she rebelled against God, by eating a forbidden fruit, then she would be like God Himself... God knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil."
.                             Genesis 3:5
. Wow, ultimate fulfilment! But when Eve believed these lies and rebelled against God and persuaded her husband Adam to join her, disaster struck. The lies were exposed and the death penalty was enforcedSo when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree desirable to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate. She also gave to her husband with her, and he ate.
.                             Genesis 3:6
... Because you have heeded the voice of your wife, and have eaten from the tree of which I commanded you, saying, 'You shall not eat of it': "Cursed is the ground for your sake; in toil you shall eat of it all the days of your life.
.                             Genesis 3:17
In the sweat of your face you shall eat bread till you return to the ground, for out of it you were taken; for dust you are, and to dust you shall return.
.                             Genesis 3:19
against Eve, Adam and all their descendants... through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned--
.                             Romans 5:12
. This includes all people living today. How much better things could have been if the lies were rejected.

The Bible tells us that homosexuals, like all people in some way or other, have rebelled in their minds against their Creator who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, ... For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, ...
.                             Romans 1:25, 26, 27
. ss_trus2 In removing the truth about God, their corrupted thinking is now "God is not truly good, therefore maybe He is withholding sexual fulfillment from me, maybe same-sex relations will be great?". It's basically the same lie about God that Satan sowed into Eve's mind. It also has the same disastrous results. Those who embrace the lie find no lasting engulfment, but instead they are left with miserable lives as they wait for death and a terrible Judgement.

 

The same sex scorecard

ss_scor

 

If you are homosexual or lesbian and appreciate the truth in this scorecard, then you may wish to change your sexual preference. If you don't know how homosexuals think, click on this link and learn. Yes, we know the finite figure for eternity in hell does not strictly represent punishment forever, but it's the best we could illustrate. Maybe you don't believe in hell, if so, click on this link and find out why you don't believe in hell. (This scorecard in general applies to all sin with only the minor score categories being different.)

ss_psGod's way is always best. He is our loving Creator. He offers joy and fulfillment in this life and heaven in the next, through His Son, Jesus Christ.

Verification of the scorecard

How can we know that the above scorecard is correct? Aside from the natural consequences of poor health and no children, etc: how can we know that God really offers us the fullest joy in this life? Here are 5 proofs.

1. God is truly good.

God tells us in His Word, the Bible, that God is goodGood and upright is the LORD; ...
.                             Psalm 25:8
The LORD is good to all, ...
.                             Psalm 145:9
For the LORD is good; his mercy is everlasting, and His truth endures to all generations.
.                             Psalm 100:5
and God is love... God is love
.                             1 John 4:8
... God is love ...
.                             1 John 4:16
. Love is an integral part of His Person. Arising from this selfless love, God has offered man every blessing, filled with joy... those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.
.                             Psalm 34:10
... the LORD will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
.                             Psalm 84:11
... God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy to a man who is good in His sight; ...
.                             Ecclesiastes 2:26
. If only we obeyed God, then each of us would experience fullness of joy.

2. God created Marriage and Sex.
God made sex to be an exquisite enjoyment between a husband and his wife.

Secondly, God created marriageAnd the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man.
.                             Genesis 2:21-22
, and God provides marriage partnersHe who finds a wife finds a good thing, and obtains favor from the LORD.
.                             Proverbs 18:22
. God also made sex between a husband and his wife to be enjoyed These verses euphemistically describe the joy of sex within marriage.
Drink water from your own cistern, and running water from your own well. Should your fountains be dispersed abroad, streams of water in the streets? Let them be only your own, and not for strangers with you. Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth. As a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times; and always be enraptured with her love.
.                             Proverbs 5:15-19
. He has forbidden any other form of sex (all of which is fornication). This is His design, and it's also for our benefit and has no down-side! The scorecard for obedience to God is all positive!

3. God has shown His love

Thirdly we can look to history, to the greatest event that the world has ever seen. 2,000 years ago God openly showed His great love for usIn this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him.
.                             1 John 4:9
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
.                             John 3:16, 17
by sending His Son, Jesus Christ into the world to die most painfully on a cross for sin.

4. Testimony of Christians

Fourthly we have the testimony of countless real Christians today and throughout history that they have always found God faithful to His Word. Their highest joys are always connected with God... in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
.                             Psalm 16:11
. This is because God is truly good and He created man to have a personal relationship with Him.

5. Countless homosexuals/lesbians have changed for a new life in Christ

ss_freeLastly, there are Christians alive today who were previously homosexuals or lesbians. They have had their lives restored and transformed with joy through Jesus Christ. They testify that they were miserable sinners and that same sex relations is a bad substitute for marriage. This is also not new. The Bible records that Christians 2,000 years ago were also delivered from homosexuality Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
.                             1 Corinthians 6:9-11
(and all other sins) by the power of Jesus Christ.

Surely you desire joy, purpose and fulfillment

Here's the solution. For all who are locked into a life of misery, lack of fulfillment, dissatisfaction and worry, Jesus Christ offers you new life. It's not only free, but it's the only solution... God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
.                             1 John 5:11-12
and it's the best solution, filled with joy. If you will submit to Jesus, He will forgive you and give you real life in Himself, you will be new! God calls all people, homosexuals, lesbians and heterosexuals to repent... God ... commands all men everywhere to repent because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world ...
.                             Acts 17:30,31
and submit to His Son Jesus Christ.
