Whatever definitions we get from different dictionaries, the meaning is still the same. According to Wikipedia definitions, homosexuality is one of the three main categories of sexual orientation along with bisexuality and heterosexuality within the heterosexual-homosexual continuum. It is also the manifestation of sexual urge towards a member of one’s own sex, otherwise known as the erotic activity with a member of the same sex. On the contrary, the definitions extend beyond the scriptural statements of faith or the Holy Bible which consistently tells us that homosexual activity is a grievous sin and it should be ceased right away because it is abominable in the sight of God. Furthermore, it teaches precisely that homosexuality is a result of denying and disobeying God.
To support the Holy Bible through its chapters and verses like Romans 1:26-27, 1 Corinthians 6:9, Leviticus 18:22 & 20:13, Genesis 19: 1-13, when people continue in sin and unbelief, God “gives them over” to even more wicked and depraved sin in order to show them the futility and hopelessness of life apart from God. It proclaims that homosexual offenders will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Homosexuality is not inborn. It is self-made which developed gradually through peers who live in the same environment. The upbringing of the family is also part of the blame and indignation. Perhaps, the parents lack of disciplining and guiding the child to be straight and not to be swayed with evil and lust that the world can offer. Like other violations of the law of chastity, homosexual behavior is a serious sin. Most of the modern-day prophets have spoken about the perils of homosexual behavior and about the church’s concern for people who may have such inclinations. Here are the straight reminders that help you excogitate about your self-identity crisis and unusual behaviors, and how you wield over your inclinations which are so powerful and which may be difficult to control. The indispensable techniques are:
1. Pray always to God for helping you control your sexual drives and inclinations towards a person of the same sex;
2. Don’t do anything to arouse the powerful feelings that must be expressed only in marriage;
3. Try to compel yourself to think of the Holy Bible to guide and protect you if you start thinking to engage in fornication of the same sex;
4. Don’t participate in passionate kissing, lie on top of another person of the same sex, or touch the private, sacred parts of another person’s body, with or without clothing;
5. Don’t arouse completely those emotions in your body which is a temple of God; and
6. Think always of yourself about the Holy Bible and God made man and woman to unite together for procreation with proper blessings and it is God’s “plan of salvation.”
Homosexuality will be controlled if the person has the self-drive to change positively in accordance with God’s volitions under His care and with gospel principles. Satan’s plan is to deceive as many of us as he can to prevent us from returning to live with our Heavenly Father. One of the most damaging things he can do is to entice us by breaking the law of chastity. He is cunning and powerful. He wants us to be like him who does immoral things on earth. One major example is homosexuality practice where the lovers of the same sex engage in exotic, but brutal sex foreplays in bed.
There are also other things to stop you from being homosexual. You might try to look around and catch sight of other alternative for pleasure like masturbation, thinking only of the opposite sex and no one else– if you can change so that you won’t be gay. In this method, perchance you can be straight. You have to try these eccentric observations and pleasurable practices for your own sake! Express yourself in a world wherein you and a woman live together. Think deeply of something like having a sexual intercourse with her. If you think it does not work, retry! Think also straight fantasies to make you sexually active!
