Do Christians Hate Homosexuals?
Homosexual activity (sexual actions between two people of the same sex) has waxed and waned throughout history. Generally, society does not look at people in this sexual lifestyle as normal, due to many reasons. The biggest reason is the health complications that arise from pursuing this activity. The Bible clearly calls it sin and Revelations 21:8 and other places go so far as to say that homosexuals will not be in Heaven. Romans 1 calls it unnatural.
Christians are God’s people on this earth and what true believers do should demonstrate God’s love while the Earth is under the authority mankind and the enemy. God will take control of the Earth again at the return of Jesus. In the Bible, God is very clear that sexual sin is deadly and will separate us forever from Him. You can see what the Bible says about homosexuality here. However, God’s representatives on the earth, Christians are sometimes accused as being “Homo Haters” and even attacked for just being Christian by militant homosexual groups. This is wrong and intolerant. It doesn’t help things when religious people calling themselves “Christians” carry signs saying “God Hates Fags” or worse.
Sinning Against Your Body
Does God hate homosexuals, ‘gays’ and ‘lesbians’? The answer is simple, no. Does God hate the sexual sin of these men and women? Yes. God is so pure and awesome that those in sin cannot even stand in His presence. It’s not just homosexual sin, but all sin separates us from God. We know from 1 John 1:8,9 that we must confess our sin regularly once we have accepted Jesus. We are all imperfect, and only by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ are we made right before our Heavenly Father. To God, sin is sin, but sexual sin is worse as it’s people sinning not only against God, but against their own bodies according to 1 Corinthians 6:18. We are all clearly what to do with sexual sin.
Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.
-1 Corinthians 6:18-20 (NLT)
Sexual sin is not just homosexual. Sinning against your body is any kind of sexual sin, fornication, adultery, and all sorts of digression. There are physical problems that happen such as disease, bodily dysfunction, and other things that occur as a result of this sin in addition to blocking your relationship with God. God’s design for sexual intercourse, or intimacy, is for one husband and one wife to be united in marriage. It’s beautiful.
