Without repeating all of the anti-homosexual passages in Scripture we all know, there are two that are often overlooked and missed in the discussion. The passages are: 2 Peter 2:6-9 and Jude 7.
Sodom and Gomorrah were known first and foremost for their open homosexuality that governed all that these cities did. Peter says that God “condemned these cities by reducing them to ashes” (1 Pet. 2:6). To those who would follow after (that is presently in our day, our culture), these cities became an “example.” God rescued Lot who was “oppressed by their sensual conduct of these unprincipled men” (v. 7). The word unprincipled means “lawless.”
Righteous Lot “saw and heard” all that was happening around him, “while living among them” (v. 8). His soul was “tormented day after day with their lawless deeds” (v. 8b). Their “lawless deeds” means the “lawless activities, works,” done by the homosexuals. And that would be referring to their gross and sinful biological practices.
Jude tells us that Sodom and Gomorrah destroyed other cities also, those “cities around them.” The sins of homosexuality that were happening in Sodom and Gomorrah were causing these other cities “to indulge in gross immorality in the same way.” The homosexuals were dragged into their gross sins by going after other men sexually. They “went after strange flesh,” or abnormal relationships, man with man, and probably women with women! In Jude 7b, the apostle could be hinting at the fact that most homosexuals will not repent of their sins. They are spiritually doomed in that they are heading to “undergo the punishment of eternal fire.”
Swedish pastor Ake Green has warned that the homosexual agenda is increasingly creeping into Sweden’s schools. “We have seen time and time again how the homolobby works overtime (and over time) to gradually and systematically gain more influence to indoctrinate our vulnerable children, especially in our schools. They want access to our vulnerable children in order to introduce gender confusion into their minds.”
There is no winning and no turning back! We are into the spiritual apostasy in our churches and we are going toward the rapidly moving moral destruction of our western cultures. While we may fight along the way, and present the gospel to those who will listen, believers in Christ need to prepare for the total degeneration and collapse of the world as we have known it. This could happen even before the rapture of the church and the beginning of the seven year period of tribulation!
I urge all pastors to teach on the 2 Peter and Jude verses we have given above!
