Now before I start let me clear up some presuppositions you may have: this blog-post is not why I hate those who are LGBT+ or why LGBT+ are going to Hell, but is about why I am not personally LGBT+ and do not support the movement. I do not hate those who identify as any part of the LGBT+ acronym which includes, but is not limited to lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, queers, intersexuals, and asexuals. In fact, I love them just as much as any other human being and ought to as the Bible has commanded us too in John 13:34-35 (NKJV). In that passage, Jesus said “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another; as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.”
As you continue to read this blog-post, know that I write it because I love you, want you to consider the decisions you make in life, and how those decisions affect your afterlife when you inevitably die one day. Just a side note: those who are apart of the LGBT+ movement should really work on the acronym and name. It’s really long and is beginning to sound like an Arab country. There are even some of you that prefer the longer version which is the acronym LGBTQIAPD+ which just so happens to be NINE LETTERS!! Just a thought from someone who noticed the ridiculously long acronym for your cause. Moving on!
I understand the major points concerning both sides of the debate and will try to avoid them in order to bring about new, logical observations of the controversial issue at hand from a broader viewpoint. This blog-post was inspired by a lecture given by philosopher Ravi Zacharias which you can watch part of here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nPYRXop7aPA, Dr. Michael Brown’s various publications on the subject which you can read at his website here: https://askdrbrown.org/, Ray Comfort’s street evangelism on the subject which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8UTkoIrVlm4, and this article written by philosopher Dr. William Lane Craig here: http://www.reasonablefaith.org/a-christian-perspective-on-homosexuality. With this in mind, let us dive into why I personally am not LGBT+ and why I do not support the movement.
- Contradicts Evolution
Although I am a firm biblical-creationist, I will argue the position of a theistic-evolutionist because I want to show the logical fallacy of believing in the theory of evolution and being LGBT+. Let me first define the theory of evolution before going into this point. According to the website http://darwin200.christs.cam.ac.uk/, the theory of evolution is that
“evolutionary change comes through the production of variation in each generation and differential survival of individuals with different combinations of these variable characters. Individuals with characteristics which increase their probability of survival will have more opportunities to reproduce and their offspring will also benefit from the heritable, advantageous character.”
By using this definition as a springboard, evolution is essentially about advancing the human species by passing on the greatest genetic material from the previous generation to the next generation. The way this great genetic material is passed down from generation to generation is by sexually mating to produce offspring. Yet there’s only one problem: you need a female and a male to go about this vital aspect of life. Two females and two males cannot go about this absolutely essential part of evolution. They cannot pass on their genetic material onto the next generation no matter how much they try.
Now some of you may say “What about the other 450 species that show signs of homosexuality?” Well random citizen of the human population, I would point you to this article by the BBC: http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20150206-are-there-any-homosexual-animals, but I must warn you that the article has quite sexually explicit descriptions of animal intercourse and pictures of animals doin’ it. Read at your own risk precious, little viewers. Anyways, what the study concluded was the following:
“We may never find a wild animal that is strictly homosexual in the way some humans are. But we can expect to find many more animals that don’t conform to traditional categories of sexual orientation. They are using sex to satisfy all sorts of needs, from simple pleasure to social advancement, and that means being flexible.”
In other words, these 450 species of animals are not homosexual or LGBT+ for that matter, but in rare cases according to various studies, they display homosexual tendencies to do one of the following: make the opposite sex jealous by having intercourse with the same-sex in order to have intercourse with the opposite sex, doin’ it because doin’ it the wrong way is fun, and attaching either eggs or sperm onto another same-sex animal in its species in order to pass on that genetic material indirectly to the next generation with a superior opposite-sex animal.
The only animal that does display consistent amounts of homosexual and bisexual activity is sheep which are known for being exceptionally dumb. To put it succinctly, if the animal kingdom was a drawer of knives, sheep would be the spoon. For instance, in the country Turkey there was a group of ranchers who left their sheep-gate open on accident when they went to go get breakfast. The leader-sheep of the flock of sheep led them out of the gated area, walked off a cliff and subsequently, so did the other 1,499 other sheep in the flock. The result was about 400 dead sheep with 1,100 resting on top of the pile of crushed corpses at the bottom of the cliff. Needless to say, when it comes to sexuality, do not rely on the fact that sheep show signs of consistent abnormal sexual activity because they are too dull to realize their own foolishness.
If you are LGBT+, then you cannot believe the theory of evolution and live like you do. You will have to either deny the theory of evolution and embrace LGBT+ or reject LGBT+ and believe the theory of evolution. You cannot logically believe both because they contradict each other. Or you could do what I do and support neither the theory of evolution or the LGBT+ movement because science! Put bluntly, LGBT+ does not advance the human species and quite frankly holds humanity back from having the fittest survive. This is my first objection to the LGBT+ movement.
- Femininity & Masculinity Dies
Another reason that I do not support the LGBT+ movement is because it demolishes human sexuality and redefines the two sexes which have always been female and male. The way that the LGBT+ movement uses sexuality is the same as when an infant plays with their toys. They misuse it and destroy it because they are not sure how to use it correctly. When in reality, sex is a physical representation of an intimate, chemical bond that develops between two people that seals their affection for each other.
Until those who are LGBT+ do it the right way, they’re just stumbling in the dark, so to speak. The right way being genital to genital intercourse within a heterosexual, marital relationship and not any other combination ever. You may respond with any number of questions such as “Well, why not oral sex or anal sex?” and to that I would reply back “You want to know how Michael Douglas got throat cancer? Or how Magic Johnson got HIV? Oral and anal sex. That’s how.” Various studies show that those who live a LGBT+ lifestyle are a lot more at risk for STD’s, AIDS, and so on because humanity was not intended to engage in such reckless sexual activity that corrupts the original purpose of sex itself. That original purpose I will dive into more explicitly in my third point, but for now just know that the LGBT+ lifestyle causes more harm for people than help coincidentally just like every other sin.
Have you ever noticed how most who are LGBT+ fully encompass the stereotypes of each gender? For example, how do you know for the most part that a woman is lesbian? Well, how do they act and present themselves? Some intentionally gain weight to look “strong” and pretend to be stronger than they really are, have typical male haircuts, dress in male-oriented fashion, and so on to masquerade as men. Well, that’s because they do not know who they are without God, so they turn themselves into caricatures of the opposite-sex. No one really does in fact know who they are and they never will unless they know God. You know, that one God that created sex and wanted us to do it a lot the right way? Yeah, that God. According to an unofficial poll that has not been conducted yet or may have been, 10 out of 10 people agree that sex is really fun. So why not do it the way people have been doing for thousands of years? Is it really that hard to stick to God’s original intentions for sex or do you really need to re-identify yourself through disastrous sexual activity that does not honor the King?
Although when you do know who you are it helps guide you as to how you should live life. As a man, I know there are not just biological differences, but mental and spiritual differences as to how I am built compared to a woman. Yet I do not reject it, but I embrace my differences. As a matter of fact, it’s the differences between men and women that make life interesting! To take a case in point, I think women are really confusing, but at the same time so enticing because they don’t act, look, or think like me. And that’s the way God intended it to be. Loving one another despite our differences whether in a marital relationship with someone of the opposite-sex, familial relationships with the opposite-sex, or friendly relationships with the opposite-sex. Yet when that design is corrupted by the LGBT+ movement, it corrupts femininity and masculinity to the point of non-existence. Basically, the LGBT+ movement destroys the definitive qualities for each sex and a lack of identity is replaced w/ gender stereotypes.
- God Said No
My final objection to being LGBT+ and why I do not support the movement is that it goes against what God entailed as good sexual relations in the beginning of time itself. When He created everything in the beginning, He created the first marriage as such in Genesis 2:18-25 and this has been the model for what marriage is since the beginning: one man + one woman = one flesh for life. Then as life went on, the world grew darker and God had to set commandments as to relationships that were not acceptable because everyone was having sex with everything. Another way you can look at this is a parent that builds a fence around their yard, so that their kids do not run into the street and get hit by a car. Meant as a sign of protection rather than what the culture believes is an old fashioned way of doing things that limits “progress” as a human species.
These parameters set by God were given first to the Hebrew nation (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13) to be an example to other secular nations and then for the rest of the world (Romans 1:24-32), yet the standard has always been the same for every human which is clearly stated in 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 as to what is wrong in the sight of God. Yes, in America a romantic LGBT+ relationship may be recognized as marriage, but not from God because it truly is not marriage. Just people attempting to justify their sin by pulling someone else in to partake in it with them, so that it feels like the right thing when in actuality it is morally wrong. To summarize, any romantically committed relationship that is LGBT+ is not marriage whether or not you have a piece of paper that says so.
There is also the point to consider that real marriage is a representation of a more spiritual union between God and His church. In various passages in the Bible, the Church is often referred to as the Bride of Christ and that Jesus is essentially the groom in this union. When the LGBT+ movement comes into the church and tampers with this union by pigeonholing their sin into the sanctity of this relationship, it ruins everything. I could go on about my third point, but that seems redundant because I have already written on the subject of marriage so I will point you back to my first blog-post entitled “1 + 1 = 1: Entering Marriage in the Modern World” which you can find on this website. Hence, I am not LGBT+ nor do I support the LGBT+ movement because it does not represent the union between God and His church. Well those are my thoughts on the subject of the LGBT+ movement and I hope that this has somehow helped you. With that, Godspeed and Jesus bless!
