|Homosexuality a Mental Illness?|
The American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its diagnostic list of mental disorders in 1973, despite substantial protest (see Socarides, 1995). How convenient! But how destructive. It is important to take note of the “liberty” that the homosexuals now say they walk in, which in truth is really bondage. This perversion (the act of perverting; a turning from truth or propriety; a diverting from the true intent or object; change to something worse; the man acts like the woman and the woman acts like the man – Webster’s 1828) is dealt with in a most severe manner.
Read on: Leviticus 20:13 says, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” Line upon line and precept upon precept.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen (so be it). For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet.

Then these homosexuals have the audacity to call the preaching of God’s Law, “hate crimes.” This will only last with the people as long as it is tolerated! If not, God will deal with it in a way man wished he had dealt with it.
On Judgment Day, the truth will be all cleared up. Apparently they weren’t listening to God’s warning when He said in 2 Peter 2:6, “And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly”.
(All the way up until 1961, homosexual acts were illegal in every state. They still are in some states. Most studies reveal that less than 3 percent of the American population is gay.)
It is interesting to note how the homosexual community takes on the rainbow for its symbol and its meaning of peace with God. This is nothing new. Satan often attempts to pervert the meaning of God’s word and truth through perverted people. Here is another example. God destroyed the world through judgment because as it says in Genesis 6:5: “And God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.”
The Lord saw fit to warn the people two different times, in Leviticus 18:22 and Leviticus 20:13, against the abominable act of homosexuality (rightly called “crimes against nature”). The very reason judgment was brought against the earth was because of these abominations before God. But instead of taking heed to why God brought the judgment, the homosexuals overlook it and then pervert God’s very meaning.
And God spake unto Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, And I, behold, I establish My covenant with you, and with your seed after you; And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth. And I will establish My covenant with you; neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth. And God said, This is the token of the covenant which I make between Me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I do set My bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between Me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: And I will remember My covenant, which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.
— Genesis 9:8-16
Those who attempt to play the devil’s advocate with God’s true intention better understand that next time He is judging the world by fire, not water (2 Peter 3:12).
