Comment: The initials LGBT is a broadly accepted characterization for lesbians, gay, bisexual and transgender. These are Scripturally-unacceptable terms that have come up in modern times in relation to human sexuality. Lesbians are female homosexuals. Gay, male homosexuals. Those who are Bisexual relate with both men and women while Transgender refers to somebody who adopts the dress and often the behaviour of the opposite sex. Transgender are sometimes called Transsexual if they desire medical assistance to transit from one sex to another. “God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions”. - Ecclesiastes 7:29.
These are immoral acts that faithful worshippers of God should loathe. “Cry aloud, spare not”, says the word of God, “lift up thy voice like a trumpet, and shew my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins” – Isaiah 58:1.
Clearly, Apostle Paul did not mince words on such evils: “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 even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness…haters of God, despiteful…inventors of evil things… Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them. - Romans 1:26-32.
