HOMOSEXUALITY:A New Christian Aproach
1/12/2011 / Christian Living

Despite the numerous biblical warnings that God will send practicing homosexuals to hell ( 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
9 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, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. ) the acceptance and even popularity of homosexuality is rapidly spreading throughout the nation.In fact it's very difficult for any political candidate to get elected to any position above the level of City Council Representative if he or she openly opposes homosexual practices.Of course no one should be surprised in the least by the rapidly spreading homosexualization of the nation having been given ample warning in the Bible of the evil that will abound in the last days.

Fortunately,the Bible as usual does offer excellent counsel to deal with this problem:

2 Timothy 3:12-14 (Contemporary English Version)

12 Anyone who belongs to Christ Jesus and wants to live right will have trouble from others. 13 But evil people who pretend to be what they are not (CHRISTIANS) will become worse than ever, as they fool others and are fooled themselves. 14 Keep on being faithful to what you were taught and to what you believed. After all, you know who taught you these things.

Because of the astonishing evil nature of society,it will become increasingly impossible to fight homosexual activities by using moral or religious arguments.This is especially true for those trying to prevent the legalization of homosexual marriages which in time is bound to be approved on civil rights grounds.For this reason I now propose a new way for Christians to morally and reasonably effectively oppose homosexuality;re-define it has a growing public health menace.Instead of accusing homosexuals of sin,it is far more effective to show sincere concern for their physical and mental health which homosexual practices gravely endanger.Here are some of the latest statistics you can use,these having been compiled in Canada:

Life expectancy for gay/bisexual men is 20 years less than the
average;specifically 55 years.

Homosexuals commit suicide at rates 13.9 times more often than average.

Homosexuals have smoking rates 3 times higher than average.

Homosexuals have rates of alcoholism 7 times higher than average.

Homosexuals have rates of illicit drug use 19 times higher than average.

Homosexuals show rates of depression 3 times higher than average.

Homosexual men comprise 76.1% of AIDS cases.

Homosexual men comprise 54% of new HIV infections each year


It really comes down to this;it will be much more effective to fight the growing acceptance of homosexuality with compassion using health statistics rather than moral condemnation.
