Scriptures support La Grande mayor’s position on gays

Thank you, Mayor Daniel Pokorney, for speaking the truth of gays. You had no need to apologize.

However, Eastern Oregon University President Bob Davies should apologize to this town for allowing or supporting the Gay-Straight Alliance and two other
homosexual clubs in the halls of EOU. 

These clubs are a corruption of the mind and soul to young people who are striving for an education. There needs to be a housecleaning of some of the higher echelons of education that turn their back on the truth or compromise it.

Not my voice, but Almighty God, has spoken on the subject of homosexuality and declares it in the Scriptures.

1. Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind; It is an abomination.”

2. Deuteronomy 23:17 “There shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel.”

3. Lot is visited by two angels at the gate of Sodom, and invited them into his house.

Genesis 19:4-5 “But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them.

Judgement: Genesis 19:24-25 “Then the Lord rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the Lord out to heaven; And he overthrew those cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities and that which grew upon the ground.

Now let us tie these scriptures to Biblical reasoning. If God states that man is not to lie with mankind, and there is not to be a sodomite in the sons of Israel, and God destroys the offenders in Sodom and Gomorrah with fire and brimstone, then doesn’t it make sense to banish this type of behavior that God has called
carnal and depraved?

I Kings 14:24 “And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord cast out before the children of Israel.

1 Kings 15:11-12 “And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the Lord, and did David his father. And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers made.

If you are gay or a liberal sympathizer, then educate yourself to the truth of God’s word. The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O Lord, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.

Pay attention to what God declares in Romans 1:24, 26, 27. 

“Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts to dishonor their own bodies between themselves. 

For this cause, God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use unto 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 man working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was met.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to reprobate mind, to do things which are not convenient.”

To heal? Repent! Christ came to save that which is lost.
