Tomorrow, the LGBT community in Moldova plans to hold the Pride Moldova 2019 march in Chisinau. Their slogan this year is “I’m OK with myself, I’m not OK with hatred.”
So they call “hate” the negative attitude of people towards their way of life and their manifestation in the public space. So if I have a negative attitude towards smoking and smoking in public, is that necessary hatred? Not at all. The Bible remains very clear about homosexuality, lesbianism and sex change – it is a SIN. Period. Let’s not be smarter than God, trying to tolerate this way of life.
Just these days, at the session in Ukraine, I studied chapter 19 of the book Judges. There is an event that happened in a tribe in Israel. A man and his wife arrived in a city and stayed there overnight with an unknown man. Here is what happened next:
“While they were celebrating, behold, the men of the city, certain worthless fellows, surrounded the house, pounding the door; and they spoke to the owner of the house, the old man, saying, “Bring out the man who came into your house that we may have relations with him.” Then the man, the owner of the house, went out to them and said to them, “No, my fellows, please do not act so wickedly; since this man has come into my house, do not commit this act of folly.” (Judges 19:22-23 NASB)
The master of the house called the intention of these men evil and an act of folly. In the book of Leviticus 18:22 God calls same-sex relationships an abomination:
“You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22 NASB)
So God condemns homosexuality. However, there is hope for those who practice this sin. God is powerful to deliver and heal them.
There are many testimonies of people who have escaped homosexuality. In March, I spoke with a minister of the gospel who formerly practiced homosexuality but, after believing in the Lord Jesus and repenting, renounced this passion. He is currently helping other people with such problems to break free.
I must say that I am against aggressive protest rallies, but I welcome peaceful rallies. I pray that God will thwart tomorrow’s LGBT march and give repentance to these people.
