Only A Man And A Woman Can Procreate – Added Comments

(Part 1 from June 18th)

I was listening to someone as he was preaching the Gospel on Youtube, talking about the subject of homosexualism. He had some excellent insight. One of the points made was that a man and a man cannot have children. The same with a woman and woman. This makes perfect biological sense. Only a male and female can reproduce when they come together.

I know there are gay and lesbian people out there who believe in God, and believe that God loves them. It would make sense to them, at least it would seem, to make sense that if God created everything ‘good’, and that He created man and woman to live in a special relationship together, doesn’t it show God’s creativity and order in that children are born in this relationship? That is how families come about. If there is no reproduction, then there would be no children, and therefore the human race would die out.

Well, you might be thinking that gay people can adopt and have a family. That is a possibility, but is that according to God’s design for families? Doesn’t it seem a little difficult trying to decide which partner has the ‘mom’ responsibilities and vice-versa? What is God’s design, and why does God design it this way?

Comments:

There is an argument on the homosexual side which says that there is no Greek word for ‘homosexual’. Let’s go with that for a minute. Even if there is no explicit Bible verse using the word ‘homosexual’, lets look at some other factors from the Bible.

In Leviticus 18:22, it says that a man is not to lie with a man as he would a woman. It is an abomination. “You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” I understand that we are not living under the civil laws for Israel in the Old Testament days, but is that verse indicating something about how God thinks of the act of homosexualism?

If you look throughout both Old Testament and New Testament, when God is referring to the marriage relationship, that particular relationship is always made up of one man and one woman. Ephesians 5 gives directions for both husband and wife specifically. Other chapters, such as 1 Corinthians 7, also suggest that there is a difference between men and women and that it takes one of each to make a marriage. The symbolism of Christ and the Church is a clear picture of the church being the ‘Bride of Christ’.

Could being a homosexual be natural? Let’s ask another question as well. Is it normal for men to go to the beach and look at the girls? Of course, it is normal. It is not a matter of homosexualism or men lusting after sexy women to be natural. It is a matter of ‘is it right?’ Sin is very natural and comes easily to everyone. Each person that walks the face of this earth will struggle with sinful issues, whether they be lust, greed, pride, or immorality. Everyone needs to be saved and delivered from their sins.

The Bible says that sin is always knocking at the door. It is up to us to keep the door shut. The sinful desires are too strong for us to fight against in our own strength. That is why we need the power of the Holy Spirit in us to help us fight against sin. The Holy Spirit is promised to those who have turned from their sins (repentance) and trusted in Jesus Christ as their atonement for their sins. When Jesus died on the Cross for our sins, the power of sin was destroyed. The power of God is now available for us to have to live a holy life, pleasing to God.

One more thought. If you are living a lifestyle that is opposed to the Scriptures, but you are trying to justify yourself by saying the Bible doesn’t say that what I am doing is wrong, ask yourself this question; If I knew that Jesus was going to come to my house tonight and spend a week with me, would I be comfortable doing the things I am doing right now and the way that I am living my life? What things would change while He was there in my home? Would I feel uncomfortable, or would I welcome Him gladly to stay with me for a week?
