What Does It Mean When Homosexuals and Lesbians Announce They Are “Coming Out” ?

Good Morning America host Robin Roberts has  recently announced that she is “coming out” to declare to the world that she is a practicing lesbian.

Roberts,  a breast cancer survivor, was also diagnosed  in 2012 with myelodysplastic syndrome, a blood disorder caused by chemotherapy for her cancer. She credited  her “girlfriend” for getting her through this on her Facebook Page.

This “coming out” received national media coverage and has been applauded by the world system as somehow being demonstrative of courage.

That is not what the Word of God says.

In Leviticus 18:22, God describes homosexuality as “detestable:

“Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin.” This same standard applied to women having sex with another woman as with a man.

In Romans 1:18-32,  the lifestyle of homosexuality and lesbianism is described as “ungodliness” and ” unrighteousness”.

The Word goes on, in Romans, to describe those who practice homosexuality and lesbianism as:

“unclean’, saying they “dishonored their bodies among themselves” and are now “worshiping the creature” (Satan).

The Word also makes it clear that they are “in error” and have ‘debased minds”.

It is clear that the Word of God doesn’t paint a glorified portrait of those who are “coming out” or of the very activities for which they boast and are applauded for.

When they are “coming out”, it is spiritual rebellion against God inspired by the god of this world which blinds their mind from the light of Jesus Christ.

“In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”- II Corinthians 4:4

So what does it mean when homosexuals and lesbians “come out”?

It means that person is now without moral restraint and are unashamed of mocking God in the eyes of the very world God created.

It means that person has been completely given over to a reprobate mind and has no hope aside from the blood of Jesus Christ.

It  means that this person no longer has any knowledge of God and is “filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and evil-mindedness.”

Finally, homosexuals and lesbians “coming out” means that they have decided to declare to the world their hatred of God.

I don’t see that as something to celebrate or applause. I also don’t see it as a badge of courage or honor.

It is a confirmation of one walking in damnation before our very eyes.

It is a reason for us to pray for such a person and for a nation which would exalt them for choosing against God and against their own best interests.

As for Ms. Roberts’ glorifying her same sex lover for her role in helping her to overcome cancer, God’s Word speaks to this as well:

“Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble,
    and he saved them from their distress.
He sent out his word and healed them;
    he rescued them from the grave.
Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love
    and his wonderful deeds for mankind.”- Psalm 107:19-21

The Lord God had mercy upon Robin Roberts and showed her acts of kindness, in spite of her blatant rejection of Him.

I have got to believe the Lord did this to demonstrate to her that Christ died for all of us and, thus, His grace is freely available to any of us.

It is tragic that Ms. Roberts and all who are “coming out” as homosexuals and lesbians, have decided that God’s grace is not sufficient for them.

May the Lord have mercy on them and on a nation that has given hatred towards God an audience to applaud it.

  1. Is it your observation that all out gay people are indeed “filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, and evil-mindedness”?

  2. Michelle says:

    Stacy, thank you for your boldness in proclaiming God’s unchanging Truths!

    So I guess all that “don’t judge” and love thy neighbor stuff isn’t relevant anymore? You are aware that Leviticus law also states that you can’t wear mixed fabrics? But I see you’re sporting a nice mixed fabric suit there. You should surely be put to death.

    James 4:11-12 “Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge. There is only one lawgiver and judge, he who is able to save and to destroy. But who are you to judge your neighbor?”

    Do you like shrimp?

    Leviticus 11:10

    But anything in the seas or the rivers that has not fins and scales, of the swarming creatures in the waters and of the living creatures that are in the waters, is detestable to you.”

    Or pork? Leviticus 11:7
    “And the pig, because it parts the hoof and is cloven-footed but does not chew the cud, ais unclean to you.”

    You are not a Christian, you are nothing more than a hateful, judgmental man. Jesus says to love everyone, and to never judge. To love they neighbor, love the poor, love the sinners, love the homosexuals, love the prostitutes, love your enemy as you would yourself not damn them to hell because you need something to hate on.
