“As our Lord Jesus told the woman at the well, only He can impart life, but to obtain it, you must serve Him. His yoke is easy and His burden is light, but you must bear it or you can have no part in Him.” Walter A. Henrichsen (“Walt”)
Thoughts From The Diary of A Desperate Man
“…and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.” Romans 1:27
The great Apostle paints a bleak picture of the human race. Beginning with a thankless heart, mankind degenerates from idolatry to immorality to homosexuality. Three times Paul says, “He gave them up.” God allows man to go his own way.
Some appetites are natural, such as eating and drinking. Other appetites are acquired, such as alcohol, drugs, smoking, and homosexual behavior. You must be careful what appetites you develop. When awakened, these appetites are extremely difficult to put back to sleep. Academia teaches that intellectual excellence comes via investigation and experimentation. Moral excellence, however, comes via abstinence. When you apply investigation and experimentation to the moral realm, you end in ruin.
Paul says that the homosexuals “receive in their own person the due penalty for their error,” that is, they are trapped in the image of who they think they are. You live out the perception of who you see yourself to be. For example, as a father or mother, you respond in the family unit in accordance with who you perceive yourself to be. If you shape for yourself an unbiblical image, as does the homosexual or lesbian, you are penalized by having to live in accordance with that image.
