The Sin that Dare Not Be Called a Sin

I believe that the Biblical worldview encompasses all aspects of life. I believe that all issues—whether political, economic, or social—are spiritual issues. Most Christians focus on what they call the moral issues when they get involved with politics, but I would like us to understand that all these issues are moral issues. We are always dealing with right and wrong.

That’s why this blog doesn’t focus only on problems such as abortion. If you have read anything I’ve written, you know I’m a strong pro-life person. Being a Christian and adhering to Biblical principles makes that mandatory. Yet I also write about dishonesty in public life, false ideologies that take us down a destructive path as a society, and hypocrisy, among other sins. And yes, I’ve hit on the abortion issue repeatedly.

There is one other issue that I have touched on occasionally, but have not spent a lot of time explaining: the Biblical view of homosexuality and the consequences of the acceptance of homosexuality in a society. The only reason we have to concentrate on this one is that, for the first time in American history, activists who want to make homosexuality a normal part of our society have pushed a political agenda, and have tried to make everyone conform to their views.

This movement has even adopted a symbol: the pink triangle. Whenever you see it, you are witnessing the emblem of “gay rights.” Incidentally, I don’t like to use the term “gay” for this movement. They’ve taken a perfectly good word, with another definition, and ruined it. Let’s just be direct and call this the homosexual rights movement.

It has become very difficult in our society to talk about homosexuality as a sin. Just try to link that little word with homosexual behavior and you will be labeled as a bigot. You could even be accused of a “hate crime.” That’s another whole topic that I’ll set aside for now.

But I’m going to remain Biblical and call it what it is: sin.

What I want to do over the next few days is deal with homosexuality step by step. I will start with the Biblical perspective on it, then proceed to show what the movement is currently doing and what it hopes to accomplish in the future. By the time I’m done, I hope you’ll understand why this is one of the paramount issues of our time, and why Christians need to speak up and not allow the world to shape us into its mold.
