7-2-2015 Born Sinners?

Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NKJV). These continuing actions are violations of God’s Law. Are babies born stealing? Do babies come out of their mothers reviling, that is, using coarse, vulgar language? Are babies born “extortioners,” stealing by force and violence? Certainly not! Such sinful behavior must be learned as they grow up. Just so with “homosexuals” and “sodomites.” No one is born this way, it must be learned as they grow up. Sin is a decision in life, and God “now commands all men everywhere to repent” (Acts 17:30 NKJV).

7-1-2015 Homosexuals in Church?

Are there homosexuals in the church of Christ? Absolutely! The church of Christ in Corinth had members who once were : fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, homosexuals, sodomites, thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers, extortioners. The church of Christ began with murderers of Jesus Christ who were told to: “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38 NKJV). When they obeyed, “the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved” (Acts 2:47 NKJV). The church of Christ is made up of all kinds of sinners – who have repented. Paul reminded the Corinthians: “And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:11 NKJV).
