"THERE IS NO
salvation from sins power for anyone except we become adopted into His family (Galatians 4:5-6, Ephesians 1:5) by being spiritually born again (John 3:3) and to repent as Acts 3:19 tells us to repent that our sins may be blotted out.
has sinned as the Bible writes, “All have sinned and come short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
NO HUMAN BEING
is without sin, either Christian or non-Christian (gay or straight); we are by nature sinful and no human being can stop the sinful nature’s desires except Jesus Christ’s power of Salvation (Romans 6; 2 Timothy 3:5).
THE BIBLE WRITES
“The gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 6:23). Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no man cometh unto the Father [God], but by Me…” (John 14:6)
THE BIBLE ALSO WRITES
“Neither is there salvation in any other [than Jesus Christ], for there is no other name under heaven given among men whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)Whereby we can be saved from sin, the sinful nature and saved from damnation for “the penalty of sin is death.” (Romans 6:23, John 3:16)
WE ALL NEED THE POWER
of salvation daily to stop the sinful nature doing its own thing, or to stop it sinning [pornography, incest, imorality lust fornication lying cheating stealing idolatry covetousness adultery homosexuality flattery pride]. And we all need the power of salvation to heal us from the repercussions of the sins done against us, and our own past sins. Then we next need Him to outwork a new change of heart and attitude and take on His lifestyle to live by." 1. [Malligan, 2009:10] [all words in italics added here mine]
As followers of The Lord Jesus Christ we believe that "all scripture is inspiried by God" (2 Timothy 3:16) and all prophecy of the written scriptures did not come from man but "men who were moved by the Holy Spirit." (2 Peter 2:21) Also these men and other men recorded this for "teaching for reproof for correction and for training in righteousness that we may be complete and equipped for every good work" and again they were inspiried by God moved by the Holy Spirit to write what they have written (2 Timothy 3:17).
As followers of The Lord Jesus Christ we believe every word of God to be true; His Word is His instruction manual on how to live RIGHTEOUSLY and these words are His constitution His laws His righteousness His ways He wants us to live as those who are citizens of His Kingdom. We also believe His Word is quiet clear on sin and what sin is and what acts are sin and one sin written is sodomy and or homosexuality (Leviticus 18:22, 20:13; Romans 1:24-29, 1:31; 2 Timothy 3:1-4; 2 Peter 2:10; 2 Corinthians 12:21; Galatians 5:19-21; )
Therefore "Are we to continue in sin that grace may abound? By no means! How can we who died to sin still live in it?" (Romans 6:1-2) now recall this truth "... each person is tempted when he/she is lured and enticed by his/her own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin; and sin when it is full-grown brings forth death." James 1:14-15
ASK YOURSELF ARE YOU TRULY BORN AGAIN? (John 8:12, 1 Peter 1:22-23)
DO YOU TRULY WANT A LIFE OF HOLINESS AND SANCTIFICATION? (John 17:17) Or are you happy to remain in the womb of your sin and the deception "once a homosexual always a homsexual" - there is no licience to sin because of memory or because the transformation and restoration is lengthy. We have to keep a renewed mind with truth and being born again is having our sinful nature renewed growing up in Jesus; hetrosexual or homosexual the sin nature wants rule it wants its lordship and throne and its own kingdoms lifestyle that is contary to truth contary to His Lordship Throne and Kingdom lifestyle.
THE PLAIN TRUTH IS NONE OF US CAN LIVE ABOVE OUR CARNAL DESIRES UNLESS WE ARE EMPOWERED FROM ON HIGH. NONE OF US NO ONE WITH SAME SEX ATTRACTION CAN GET BEYOND BEING ENSLAVED TO THIS SIN STRUCTURE UNLESS HE OR SHE IS TRULY BORN AGAIN. IT IS ONLY THEN THAT JESUS' CAUSES US TO STAY DEAD TO ACTING OUT THIS SIN TO REMAIN ALIVE UNTO HIM TO WALK IN HIS NEWNESS OF LIFE AND THIS NEWNESS IS A LIFE ABOVE THE BASE CARNAL NATURE THAT WANTS TO GRATIFY ITS DESIRES.
"When you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. But then what return did you get from the things of which you are now ashamed? But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves of God, the return you get is sanctification and its end, eternal life. For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:20-23)
