The following may be a little too honest for your sensibilities, so if you are of a weak constitution and cannot tolerate hard core truth, then it may be advisable that you do not continue reading.
The question was asked: How do you justify Romans 1:26-27?.
We have no need to justify anything that is written in the book of Romans, especially since the facts line up.
If we were the author of the book of Romans, then we might need to justify what we wrote, if the truth were not so obvious.
Since we are not the author of the book, let alone any of the other books within the Bible, there is no need for us to justify what is written in the Holy Scriptures inspired by God Almighty, the Creator of the Universe and Author of the purpose for the existence of mankind.
If we are honest, we acknowledge the observable evidence that backs up what has been written—the Universe and everything in it did not come about by chance.
This is what the text questioned in the book of Romans states:
- For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
Quite clearly the author is saying that when two women attempt to express themselves physically in any other way beside what was ordained by the Creator, then this is offensive to Him.
The same applies to two men engaging in physical acts not ordained by God.
This affront to God is like children informing parents that they do not respect them, and they are not going to produce grandchildren for them to enjoy, but they want them to fund their lifestyle as they irresponsibly do whatever they want.
As for the women and men mentioned in the text receiving the due penalty for their error, this appears to be a reference to venereal disease, otherwise known as sexually transmitted disease.
Cunnilingus produces herpes simplex 2 and, as the actor Micheal Douglas discovered, throat cancer; not to mention other possible cancers through the transmission of vaginal candida to the new host.
Syphilis is more common among men, although this information is suppressed these days and hidden within statements such as “any sexually active person can get syphilis through unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex” —when they come in contact with the bacterium.
In 2000, the overall male-to-female rate-ratio of P&S syphilis was 1.5, with 50 percent more cases among men than women. Increases in the male-to-female rate ratio in 2000 were observed in certain cities, corresponding to an increase in syphilis among men who have sex with men (MSM). Recently, outbreaks of syphilis among MSM have been reported, possibly reflecting an increase in risk behavior in this population.
Outbreaks of syphilis is not so common among heterosexuals for an obvious reason, unless there is some cross contamination via deviants.
Syphilis is more deadly than gonorrhea and known to have different stages (primary, secondary, latent and tertiary), with lesions found in the rectum, as well as other parts of the body.
Tertiary syphilis is associated with severe medical problems. A doctor can usually diagnose tertiary syphilis with the help of multiple tests. It can affect the heart, brain, and other organs of the body.
What is written in the book of Romans, regarding men and women forsaking sexual relations as ordained by God, appears to be a warning to all who think they can live on the edge of death and not be caught.
Like teasing a bull, really, and expecting not to be gored. Some people survive being gored, many do not!
But as for justification, there is no need to justify what is written in the text regarding unnatural sexual relations, a little research clearly points out the wisdom that is found by taking note and applying one’s life to avoiding the consequences.
Although HIV hasn’t be an immediate death sentence for a long time thanks to medications like antiretroviral therapy, those who are diagnosed still typically died younger than the general population.
Why tempt fate and allow disease to ravage one’s own body?
Of course, such a fate is much less likely, by far, to happen in a monogamous relationship, therefore, the prevailing propaganda of the surreptitious totalitarians is it ought only be right for same-sex couples to be given the same recognition in society as heterosexual couples.
But a man cannot do what a woman can do and actually carry a child in the womb, and neither can a woman do what a man can do, and inseminate her eggs.
Artificial insemination has been around for decades, and bulls are milked of their spermatozoa, so cows can be inseminated by hand.
The preferred method for human insemination is a test tube event outside the body, otherwise known as IVF (in vitro fertilization).
However, regardless of what technology has been able to achieve, this does not annul the fact that a man and a woman were designed to become one and, as a couple, reflect the image of God.
Contrary to the original plan, any attempt not to recognize this truth regarding a male and female being required to become one in an intimate union of heart, mind, body and soul is an attack upon the Creator and a design to destroy society,
In fact, feminism was funded by the Rockefeller Foundation at the behest of the Rockefellers so that this would lead to a break up of the community by destroying families.
By promoting women into the workforce, so that they could earn more money to pay taxes and eventually be able to retire, children would be left alone at home, after school teachers had indoctrinated them about their civil rights earlier in the day.
Beginning in 1960, the fourth twenty-year generation of the feminist movement, designed to break up the nuclear family, will finish by 2040.
The first generation ended 1980; the 2nd generation ended 2000; the 3rd generation will end 2020; and the 4th generation will have ended in 2040.
- for I the your God am a jealous God, visiting the of the fathers upon the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me. (Exodus 20:5)
The breaking up of the family is happening world-wide and during the fourth generation God will bring about His judgment, so choose life rather than death.
Once you have secured eternal life, beginning now, it never ends.
