To make sense of all that is going on in the world where homosexuality is concerned, the Word of God must be made the final authority.

What better place to start than in Genesis, where mention of the first family is recorded:
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.
(Gen. 1:27-28)
From this part of the creation story, you can glean some key facts about what God intended for humankind.

First, He created man in His image, which means that He gave man authority over the natural realm.

Second, we see that God created man and woman with the intention that they would produce offspring who would continue to dominate the earth.

God is a God of order. He placed man in the Garden of Eden first (Genesis 2:7-8), signifying that the man is the foundation on which the family should be built.

Soon after that, He created the woman out of the man (Genesis 2:20-25) and brought them together to fulfill God's purposes in the earth. He charged them to build families and rule together as children of God (Genesis 1:26,28).

Why does the Bible object to homosexuality? Because it goes against God's plans and purposes for man. Homosexuality contradicts what God has set forth in His Word, and He can never go against what He has already said.

For obvious reasons, homosexuality negates God's command for a man and a woman to be fruitful and multiply (Genesis 1:28). It does not allow for godly seed, or children, to be created through sexual intercourse.

God never intended for two men or two women to try to fulfill the roles that He ordained for a man and a woman in the context of marriage.

God also characterizes homosexual behavior as selfish "lust." In Romans, He gives His commentary on homosexual practices and the end result for those who participate:
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. 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: 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.
(Romans 1:25-27)
God refers to homosexual behavior as error, or "that which deviates from what is correct or true." If it is an error, then it can be corrected through the Word of God.

Restoration of the family to its original purpose can only happen when the Bible is allowed to become the final authority in our society. It will then be able to work change in the hearts and minds of homosexuals and its proponents.

Homosexuality is not a new concept. In the Old Testament, we see men and women who engaged in this type of perverse behavior and received the judgment of God.

The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were completely destroyed because of their perversity (Genesis 19:24). The further our culture moves in the same direction, the more we set ourselves up for the same thing to happen.

It's time to get the facts straight and get back to what God originally intended.
