Text: “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” – Leviticus 20:13.
Comment: According to the online definition in Encyclopedia Britannica, homosexuality means interest in and attraction to members of one's own gender. A female homosexual is often referred to as a lesbian. In the creation story, as recorded in the first and second chapters of the book of Genesis, the Almighty God created, the woman, Eve, for the purposes of marriage, procreation and companionship. Close attention should be paid to the fact that God did not create another male as a partner for Adam as this would be against His divine will. Genesis 1:27; 2:18, 21-23.
Unfortunately, this horrendous and disgusting behaviour of the ungodly has penetrated the ranks of some priests who are supposed to be the custodians of the law. The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding plains were totally obliterated from the surface of the earth which Saint Jude calls “punishment of eternal fire” (Jude verse 7). To advocate or tolerate this repugnant act is tantamount to the very sin itself. Apostle Paul warned that on the day when God would visit the sins of men, not only would He punish those who commit such sins, but also those who “have pleasure in them that do them”. (Romans 1:32) True worshippers are warned to distance themselves from the sin of homosexuality because those who practise it will not enter into the kingdom of God when it is fully set up. – Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10; 1 Timothy 1:10; etc.
