2 Peter 2:2And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed.  (NKJV)

The Book of 2 Peter in the Bible, was written by the Apostle Peter to help Christians understand that there were false teachers around them (as there are today), that will be constantly trying to teach false heresies and a gospel different that the one and only gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ…

I am going to quote my notes for this opening scripture by the Apostle Peter, written by John MacArthur…because he has written over 80 books about God and the Bible, and I respect his knowledge… Mr. MacArthur writes this, and I quote… “Many people will profess to be Christians but deny Christ’s lordship over their lives, refusing to live as obedient servants to Christ and His Word; following instead the lusts of the flesh, the world, and the devil. Such nominal Christians tragically will be included in the Lord’s condemnation of hypocrites at the judgment (Matthew 7:21-23; cf. Jude 4:7)”…end quote

This chapter 2 of the Book of 2 Peter was part of my Q/T reading this morning…as was “OBD” for 9/24 (Yesterday for you)… Here was the link for the “ODB”… http://odb.org/2012/09/24/fighting-off-jealousy/

The Bible reading to be read before reading the “ODB” devotion was…1 Corinthians 3:1-10… Here is the link for this scripture from…1 Corinthians…    http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1cor3:1-10&version=NKJV

The apostle Paul was writing to believers in the church of Corinth, because they were spiritually weak… Though they were believers, they were not under the complete control of the Holy Spirit; and therefore, they were being controlled by their own carnal flesh, or Satan, or both…

Today I write for people who profess to be Christians; but who are not living, (as John MacArthur writes in his notes above) as obedient servants to Christ and His Word

Specifically, I am referring to people who consider themselves to be Christians, and yet they agree that gay sex and/or marriage is OK…  Many of these Christians also believe that abortion should be seen as a choice… I am not here to judge anyone… All I want to do is present what the Bible clearly teaches all of us about this controversial subject…

Here is what the Bible has to say about homosexuality from both the Old Testament, as well as the New Testament…Leviticus 18:22“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.” (NKJV)

And this, spoken by Jesus, in…Matthew 19:4-5And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? ” (NKJV)

1 Corinthians 6:9-10Do 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, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers,  nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.  (NKJV)

1 Corinthians 7:2 Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.  (NKJV)

Romans 1:26-27For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 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, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.  (NKJV)

One can also look up…Ephesians 5:23-33…&…1 Timothy 1:9-10

Here is an excellent link on the subject of same sex marriage and the Bible… http://www.christiananswers.net/q-eden/edn-f018.html

And here is a video I saw just today, on Christians taking a stand for their biblically beliefs…

I would be sure people will read my thoughts on this topic, and disagree with what I have presented here today… But these aren’t my scripture verses…they come from God’s Word to direct all Christians… If only one person reads this scripture, or watches this 4 minute video…and decides to change their mind to align with the will of God and His Word…then I have accomplished what I have set out to do…

Heavenly Father, I pray that You would pierce the mind and the conscience of all of Your children with this truth about anything other than heterosexual marriage, as revealed in Your Word…  I pray Lord, that Christians everywhere would consider what You have given us in Your inerrant Word, the Bible…and live their lives as obedient children to coincide with Your will and Your ways… I pray for this spiritual awakening by You for all of Your children, in Jesus’ most precious name and for His sake…Amen…

P.S.  Becoming a Christian involves understanding and obeying the gospel of Jesus Christ (Thessalonians 1:8-9)… The gospel of Christ is presented in the link below,  to plant the seed toward salvation for those who want to become part of God’s family; to be sure they are righteous in God’s eyes, and filled with the awesome power of the Holy Spirit…
