If We’re All Created in God’s Image, Why Must Gays Change? (Conclusion)

DSCF0641

 

So, I repeat: was John Paulk correct when he said, “We [gays] are not broken, damaged, inferior or throwaways. We are created in the image of God—just like everyone else?”

First, are gays created in the image of God, just like everyone else?

Before our salvations, gays and straights alike are created in the image of God in that we can think, make decisions, have emotions, can love and interact with others, have creative ideas, can even create life through procreation, and are eternal beings.

But because of Adam’s fall, unredeemed humans can not readily converse with God or walk with Him, like Adam did in the Garden of Eden. We are separated from the life of God and will remain that way unless we are redeemed by the Lord Jesus Christ.

At salvation, gays and straights alike are redeemed and then can enjoy the life of God living in and through them.

Are all gays broken, damaged, inferior or throwaways?

Yes, they are, but so are straights. We all have to be changed into the image of Christ after our salvations. We all have to put off our old selves, have our minds renewed, and put on our new selves, created in the likeness of God.

Plus, we all, with the help of the Holy Spirit, have to put to death our sins and desires of the flesh, which are hostile and not pleasing to God. The sins of the flesh include sexual immorality, idolatry, adultery, homosexuality, and so forth.

What if a gay gives his life to Christ, but stays in his gay lifestyle?

I believe his salvation is eternally secure through grace, but there are at least two scriptures which will haunt him at the Judgment Seat of Christ:

For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. (Mark 8:38)

So if you ignore the least commandment and teach others to do the same, you will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But anyone who obeys God’s laws and teaches them will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. (Matthew 5:19)

Thus, why must gays change after accepting Jesus Christ as their Savior?

So, they don’t feel the shame of Christ when they meet Him in His glory and are not considered the least throughout eternity.

We straights have to change, too.

Thus, let’s all repent and change today.

  1. Human nature is male and female.

    “And God created man in his own image. Male and female he created them.

    All gays are either male or female, therefore they possess human nature.

    I don’t believe scripture teaches a homosexual can stay in a gay relationship and still go to heaven. The Bible is very clear this is not the case, in Romans 1, 1 Corinthians 6:9, Jude, and 1 John states that if we claim to walk in fellowship with Christ but walk in darkness that we are liars and the truth is not in us. Paul made it clear in 1 Corinthians that “such were some of you” and he mentioned homosexuality as in the past. I don’t believe in eternal security, i believe the Bible teaches conditional security if we by His grace abide in Him until the end.

  6. Very well put and scripturally sound.

  7. mdr1972,

    I am an eternal security believer and make no excuses for this doctrine in my life. I embrace it. It makes me love God even more. Scripture states that I am saved by grace and guess what? I continually saved by grace all the way to eternity.

    As I wrote not too long ago: “What good is unmerited favor from God if it can be withdrawn because I no longer deserved it? Supposedly, I never deserved it in the first place, right?”

    So, God bless you. We disagree on this doctrine, but we can still meet at the cross and rejoice that Jesus loves us both.
