We all know that among all of the other sexual hotspots of the world, Brazil is ranked very high as one of the most prolific sexual immortality places in the western hemisphere.
But first, in one of my blogs is some information regarding the origin of the word “homophobia.”
There is no etymological word and its purpose is to place a stigmatization on people that are against the act of homosexuality. The equation of hatred against the act of homosexuality and the person that practice homosexuality has found its universal word to place on anyone as a tag.
This tag is considered as an all purpose tag to make it appear that a person hates a homosexual person. Even when that person preaches and lives the righteous Word of God, and lovingly explain from the Bible that God declares the sin of homosexuality an abomination.
But that’s only half of the preaching. A child of God will also inform homosexuals that you can change with God’s help to obey the Word.
Paul tells us in Ephesians 4 that we’re to speak… “the truth in love.”
So now, in Brazil, it appears that if you say anything against homosexuality, it’s now a crime.
It’s what the world wants.
To outlaw righteousness and make lawlessness the law.
The practice of homosexuality has dire consequences. All sexual immorality has consequences, but when it comes to homosexuality, irrevocable consequences could occur.
The complete irrevocable elimination of the operable immune system is the penalty imposed on those that defy the original plan of God for sex within the confines of one male and one female in holy matrimony.
The outlawing of homophobia stems from the fact that homosexuals are attacked and killed. We should point out that a true believer in Jesus is not intimidated by any laws to prevent the preaching of the gospel. We’re not expressing a fear of people that practice the vile sin of homosexuality.
Phobia is just an expressed fear.
Much like a fear of heights, closed spaces, certain foods, flying, sailing on ships, etc.
Killing someone that practices the vile sin of homosexuality is just as wrong as practicing homosexuality.
However, just because a person preaches against practicing the sin of homosexuality, a law shouldn’t be imposed on those that practice the true and living gospel of Jesus Christ.
It’s like passing a law to prohibit a firefighter from entering a burning building to save a victim.
We all know that there’s loveless people that will kill homosexuals, but we also know that this law is also targeted towards true believers that cry out to God to help homosexuals be set free.
We can’t make a person free.
Only the Lord can free a person once a person no longer desires to be held captive in sin.
We all know that extreme loveless preaching without offering the only remedy is negligent. Preachers can’t preach with an attitude of hatred, arrogance, and pride.
As Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:1-3 (NKJV Strong’s) “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.”
Now, before we go further, it goes without saying that love doesn’t participate in the practice of homosexuality or any sin for that matter.
Look at what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 13:6 (NKJV Strong’s) Love…“does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth”
And the world want us to love homosexuals while they practice the sin of homosexuality, and accept them all as God’s creation.
This cannot happen because the whole purpose of the gospel is to give us good news that God sent His Son, the Lord Jesus, to pay for our sins, and to deliver us from the power and guilt of sin.
Jesus died to free us from sin, not to remain in the condition to practice sin.
So far, man is incapable of finding a cure for the penalty of homosexuality.
This is the ultimate goal of man when a consequence occurs as a result of practicing sexual immorality. To find a cure to avoid or remove the consequence.
Much like trying to find a way to be immune from the penalty.
Pills will take the place of the immune system until the disease completes its course.
With certain sexually transmitted diseases, we’re seeing these diseases mutate and overcome the remedy. So should they be allowed or stumble accidentally into finding the right combination of chemicals to attack and defeat the disease, over time, the disease will find a way to defeat the remedy.
But with regard to what’s happening in Brazil, this is just another way to get the world to do the same.
The believers in the U.S. should take note.
