Is It Time for Hell Fire Preaching Again?

Christian Living, Encouragement | Posted by Eddy Damas
Nov 30 2016

As anyone who has been reading my blog knows, I love the old style of Fire and Brimstone preaching. While I don’t shy away from a good preacher who delivers the bold truth and a good sermon, I believe strong words are needed in the church because we tend to grow over-complacent with our walk. So we do need a firey sermon to wake the crew up, because the Lord is coming back one day and will be on the lookout for those bright lamps. As we all know, a fire spreads quickly.

I am the kind of Christian that always likes balance in the Gospel. I would prefer to hear about God’s wrath in one breath of a Pastor, and God’s forgiveness in his, or her’s in next.

I read the following post from John Burton and was compelled to share it. Please take the time to read it. The link to the original post is here.


Is It Time for Hell Fire Preaching Again?

We need a fresh wave of great awakeners—those who will unapologetically preach hell fire in today’s dire end times.

To the shame of much of today’s church there has been a firm and steadfast rejection of any truth that doesn’t result in people feeling happy affection for God. While a core message of mine has to do with enjoyable and permeating intimacy with Jesus, I understand that it is not a mutually exclusive one. That teaching when it stands alone apart from the full counsel of God’s Word produces a people who don’t understand the fear of the Lord, the severity of their lifestyle decisions or the intensity and nearness of eternity. It results in an overly confident and casual church that presumes God’s primary focus is our satisfaction as it forsakes the realities of holiness, standards, scriptural expectations, judgment and how those who are truly saved are hanging on to that position by a thread.

“If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (1 Pet. 4:18).

This Christian culture of positivity depicts a God who is so enamored by us that judgment is contrary to his nature. The deception is that God so values us individually that our enjoyment in life is primary to him. This lie has fueled sanctioned perversion in the church through the “gay Christian” movement and the affirmation of homosexual marriage by many leading denominations.

I’ll say it as clearly as I can: God is much more interested in the establishment of His name and His Word than He is in the feelings or desires of individuals, or even of entire regions. This is God’s nature. This is love.

“…therefore, I will stretch out My hand against you and deliver you for destruction to the nations. And I will cut you off from the peoples and cause you to perish from the countries. I will destroy you. Then you shall know that I am the Lord” (Ezek. 25:7).

It’s all about Him, not us.

In our narcissistic society, our theologies have become radically distorted from just a generation or two ago. We are so self-consumed that we have adopted an image of a god that is focused day and night on worshipping us instead of us, those who are as the scum of the earth, worshipping him.

“Being slandered, we encourage. We are made as the filth of the world, and are the refuse of all things to this day” (1 Cor. 4:13).

“For if someone thinks himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceives himself” (Gal. 6:3).

“For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that also the life of Jesus might be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then, death works in us, but life in you” (2 Cor. 4:11-12).

The Christian life is not to be about personal gain. A pursuit of supposed human rights has nearly destroyed our nation, and the same strategies are in the church. The right to slaughter unborn babies for the sake of personal convenience is a horrifying indictment on our nation—and it didn’t seem that it could get any worse, until the recent admission by a Planned Parenthood leader who casually admitted to an even more sinister evil—selling body parts of murdered people.

Yes, we need hell fire preaching in the church again.

As people both in the church and in the world have been focused on rights, pleasures and positions, evil has been advancing and God’s righteous standards have been minimized or ridiculed as nonsense. Again, this is happening in the world and in the church. Churches today support both gay marriage and abortion. It’s no longer shocking. It will forever be sickening.

We need a great awakening.

“The bow of God’s wrath is bent, and the arrow made ready to string and justice bends the arrow at your heart, and strains the bow, and it is nothing but the mere pleasure of God, and that of an angry God, without any promise or obligation at all, that keeps the arrow one moment from being made drunk with your blood.” —Jonathan Edwards

The church (we) have mistaken God as one who is always happy and passive, like that sweet grandfather who is forever handing out candy and hugs no matter how rebellious the child is. It’s true that God is love, but we have attempted to define love via humanistic insight, through our own lens and our own longings for acceptance. It’s also true that God is longsuffering, but only He knows how long his suffering will be. The full force of his wrath will be released one day, and many lesser though terrible judgments will come before that happens. God is a fearful force to behold and we have been self-centered and entitled presuming that approach will somehow draw us closer to his heart.

“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

“… the Hoods of God’s vengeance have been withheld; but your guilt in the meantime is constantly increasing, and you are every day treasuring up more wrath … If God should only withdraw his hand from the floodgate, it would immediately fly open, and the fiery floods of fierceness and wrath of God, would rush forth with inconceivable fury.” —Jonathan Edwards

Zephaniah and the Coming Judgment

“I will utterly consume all things on the face of the earth, says the Lord; I will consume man and beast; I will consume the birds of the heavens and the fish of the sea, and the stumbling blocks with the wicked. I will cut off man from the face of the land, says the Lord. I will stretch out my hand against Judah, and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. I will cut off from this place the remnant of Baal, and the name of the idolatrous priests along with the priests, and those who bow down on the roofs to the host of heaven; those who worship and swear oaths by the Lord and yet swear by Milcom; those who have turned back from following the Lord, who have not sought the Lord nor inquired of Him” (Zeph. 1:2-6).

The prophecy in Zephaniah is futuristic. It is yet to happen, most scholars believe. This has some serious implications. What this means is that God cannot be defined simply by the very real truth that He love, He is kind and He is patient. Also, the Old Testament God is very much the same as the New Testament God. His supposed Old Testament style end-time personality is front and center and undeniable in this passage.

There is a greater revelation of God’s nature that is not in contradiction whatsoever with His more “positive” or appealing side. He is and forever will be the very definition of love. We can and should run to Him and not from him as we trust Him fully. We must enjoy Him in a place of immersive intimacy. We should always be full of joy and abundant life—and sober and troubled as He prepares to move on the earth.

After reading through the depiction of the coming judgment on the earth we may not so casually pray for a ‘move of God’ as we pursue revival in the land. When God moves in force we will experience His greatness—His great goodness and love as well as His great fierceness and wrath. Those who are truly His (which are much fewer than the number who profess to be his) are safe from that wrath—but not of His judgment!

God’s wrath remains on the unredeemed. That is clear. However, at the crucifixion Jesus took God’s wrath upon Himself in place of those who are legitimately His own. That being said, while we are free from wrath, judgment will absolutely visit us in the church—and it will visit us first!

“For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God, and if it begins first with us, what shall the end be for those who do not obey the gospel of God?” (1 Pet. 4:17).

Again, we need hell fire preachers to emerge and announce to the church and the world the reality of their situation and the measure of God’s wrath and judgment that is coming. Contrary to popular belief a very real revelation of hell, of torment, of God’s holiness and of our desperation and wickedness is needed to draw people to the Lover of their souls! A clear picture of Satan’s rage, of God’s standards, of eternity and of God’s overwhelming passion for people will result in an honest evaluation of their condition. For some it will result in glorious salvation.

The prophecy in Zephaniah is true. It is coming. A loving, kind, tender God is actually going to manifest in some terrible and violent ways. Is this side of God repulsive to you? I encourage you to deal with it. You can’t change God to squeeze into a Santa Clause suit. He won’t fit. Satan will though. False gods and idols fit into whatever suit we will give them. They are more than willing to appeal to our fleshly desires so as to trap us … and then to destroy us.

Carefully read what follows and ask if that picture of God matches your own:

“At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and I will punish the men who are settled on their lees, who say in their heart, ‘The Lord will not do good, nor will He do evil.’ Their goods will be plundered, and their houses laid waste. Though they build houses, they will not inhabit them; though they plant vineyards, they will not drink from their wine” (Zeph. 1:12-18).

That’s hell fire preaching. That’s a necessary message. It’s about what is yet to come. This is a revelation of God in the New Covenant. It reveals God’s nature to us afresh.

God, who is by definition love, will do what is necessary to preserve love.

A complacent people will result in a bitter day sound that announces the day of the Lord. That day is a day of wrath, distress, anguish, ruin, devastation, darkness, gloom, clouds and thick darkness. It’s also a day of a trumpet blast and a battle cry! God Himself will bring distress on mankind. It won’t be the enemy. The trouble won’t simply be the result of God lifting his protection over a nation. He will personally bring distress to mankind himself.

Blood shall be poured out because of His wrath. The fire of His jealousy will result in the earth being consumed suddenly—and all the inhabitants will experience a sudden end.

Those who are deeply intimate with Jesus will both celebrate and weep as a result of this news.

Those who are casual and expect God to satisfy them and focus on their happiness on the earth will reject Him—and many will actually declare that He is Satan when he moves contrary to their fleshly expectations of how God should operate.

This, my friend, is the unforgivable sin of the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit. The moment we attribute a move of God to a move of Satan we can know we have found trouble.

‘Truly I say to you, all sins will be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they speak. But he who blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is in danger of eternal condemnation.’ For they said, ‘He has an unclean spirit’” (Mark 3:28-30).

The great falling away will be filled with formerly professing Christians who never missed a church service, who said their prayers and faithfully tithed and taught in Sunday School. Just as during they did during the last days of Jesus on the earth, they will quickly shift from a lifestyle of crying out “Hosanna to the King of kings!” to “Crucify Him!”

The world needs to know this Jesus. The world needs to understand that God is fearful. Truly, as C.S. Lewis declared, He is not safe, but He is good. That revelation will result in a great harvest. Why? Because truth sets people free.

“Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, ‘If you remain in My word, then you are truly My disciples. You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free’” (John 8:31-32).

Truth, Boldness, Damnation and a Sword!

Christian Living, Discouragement, Encouragement, judging, Sin | Posted by Eddy Damas

I spoke the harsh truth, out of anger and love. But what did I get? Separation and finality?

We all must risk this when we are on the straight and narrow. Sometimes we do speak out of anger when we see something that our brothers are doing wrong. When I attempted to correct the brethren with nothing but the truth, I got locked out.

They may be awesome in the Lord, carrying much truth with their words. But wielding a sword carries a burden with it. Once you take the first swing with a two edge sword, the cut is often final.

Don’t get me wrong, I believe there is a place for boldness in preaching the gospel truth. I believe that fire and brimstone preaching is still needed today, but I don’t believe that calling anyone a devil, nor calling out a Christian brethren as anti-Christ is showing biblical love, or for that matter biblical truth, and I don’t believe that calling a person a devil is part of the fire and brimstone message, and never has been!

Let me allow the Bible to shed some light on what I am talking about:

“And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other; and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus; And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God. And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches.” Acts 15:39-40

Nowhere in the bible, in the midst of disagreement between the disciples, do we hear one of them calling their brother a devil. We can surely find a brother perhaps “back-sliding”, and thus becoming angry at their sin. But this is never righteous justification to call a brother a devil, nor a demon. Yes, perhaps we don’t like them going up against our beliefs, going up even against the Christian beliefs, but that is never reason enough to call someone a devil.

Choosing in our own anger to call such a brother a devil is damaging to the soul…perhaps not our own, but surely to the brethren. God always loves even the backslidden Christian, always calling out to them to draw nearer to Him.  But even the boldest Christian, who in their own anger basically curses their brethren, is in danger of hell’s fire!

Calling another Christian a devil will have the consequence of alienating them not only from you, but also poses the danger, possibly, of alienating their Christian walk. They can veer off the straight and narrow, which is already difficult enough for most Christians, and go into the twists and turns of despair and anguish, even unwanted and unnecessary depression.

How would you personally feel if a brother all of a sudden called you a devil even if you were in error? Is there grace in their message? Is the message from God? Is this what the love of God conveys, that a person in error is a devil?

We often talk about how the modern day church is too sugar-coated, but the opposite can, and always hold true:

No one wants to go into a church that condemns the soul! No one wants to be around a Christian who condemns the soul!

I’m not saying you should not rebuke a brother. A rebuke should be firm but leave room for God’s grace, and where grace abides, love abides even more! God’s grace will always end with the soul reconciled to God, this is God’s love we are talking about after all!

Am I wrong? What are your thoughts? I’d love to hear them!

Everyday Thankfulness!

Christian Living, Thankfulness | Posted by Eddy Damas
Nov 19 2016

This is the time of year I love. The time of year when I get to sit back and think about, and be grateful of all the blessings which God has showered down on me this past year. I truly believe that the most important one of these, after having a loving and merciful God, is family and friends.

Thanksgiving

You see it’s because of my family and friends that I am still alive today. I was thinking about my life just yesterday, how so dependent I was on my parents growing up. I don’t know why, but I was under the impression that my parents would be here forever. Of course, in a big way they were and are. The The lessons I learned from them are still in my mind today. The laughter and the tears are in my memory. I know many people would be under the impression that for them school (and the world), would be their learning ground; their strong points. For me that was never the case. Everything I learned about life I learned from my parents.

It was very tragic moment and time when my father passed away at 45 years of age. All of a sudden the strongest man I knew (He was stronger than Superman. The man had no weakness whatsoever!) Afterwards my mom had to become something more than an Amazon: keeping the family rolling. She learned at a very young age to work hard for her family. It was a drastic transformation for her, but she had no other choice..she had a full house with my brother, both of her parents, and I.

Sadly I never made it easy for her. I rebelled so many times throughout the years that I lost count. I’ll be straightforward and say that her an I had our disagreements and our fights. I think that both of us were worried about my future. I ended up doing the best that I could living at home for 49 years. But as she told me a while before she passed away: those who live together for that amount of time will often go through heaven and hell together.

I’m not the easiest living soul to get along with. At 50 years old I still have my rough edges. But I do have a wonderful family with my brother and nieces that I am extremely thankful for. Many people have what they call their “rocks” in life. Something sure that they can firmly plant their feet upon. I know as a Christian my real rock…the one that is forever, is Jesus Christ, and I am extremely thankful for Him. But my brother and nieces are there too. I think without their presence in my life well, I just wouldn’t be here at all.

I do have someone else that I am grateful for. Someone I love with all my heart. But we always end up on a stormy trail that ends up with either her being mad at me, or me being mad at her. Time, distance and circumstances are in between us, and always will be. But she truly has been another blessing in my life. I still think of her all the time and always will.

Have a great Thanksgiving everyone! Make it a special one and spend time with those you love.

The Christian’s Obsession

Uncategorized | Posted by Eddy Damas
Nov 11 2016

May I ask you, the reader, a serious, perhaps thought-provoking question?

Are you obsessed by anything, or anyone?

I believe that most people are. Some are obsessed by worldly things: riches, materialism, some of us become obsessed by a special cup of coffee. (I kid not…there was a time I became so obsessed with Starbuck’s Frappuccino, I was consuming two grandes a day!

Obsession is an action that is hard to deal with. On one hand there is a healthy form of obsession. On the other there is a unhealthy obsession. The problem is that an individual who is obsessed is either not aware of it, or refuses to acknowledge it when confronted by it.

I was blessed, lucky, and fortunate to be presented with my own obsession at a very early stage many years ago. I would say it was after giving my heart to Christ, but not fully, as I still had a lot of maturing left to do. So I guess in many ways God was looking out for me at a very young age. I had fallen into a state of infatuation with an older co-worker of mine. We became friends quickly, but I was hoping it would go further. Long story short: she wasn’t the slightest bit interested in me at all. At one point I caught myself driving by her house every single night. On one particular drive by a thought came to me. A horrible thought. I guess you could say I got a pre-emptive face slap by the Holy Spirit. It wasn’t long after that I made the decision to move away from the scene of the sin and never looked back.

Obsession can also result in a fantasy, or vice-versa. I recall a friend of mine was the object of the fantasies of a woman. The woman, I’m guessing, was under the impression my friend was perfect…in every way. But of course, everyone has their flaws.I’ve heard many times that a Christian should not involve themselves in fantasies, now I understand why. Fantasies are unrealistic. They can never happen!

So you could say I know what a deadly obsession is. You end up focusing on the person so much…but in the end the truth of the matter is that there are absolutely no returns at all. No matter what: for all your deposits the person you are obsessed with is not going to return anything to you at all. In the end, your obsession is your kryptonite.

Clarity of thought comes into mind: no matter who the object of your obsession is, the truth is that most people have other people that they are involved with. So your focus of obsession/attention is involved with other people, and is not even aware that you even exist.

Yes, there are definite things you can do to make sure that they know you exist: you can write them letters, call them, email them, text them. But in many cases, the person does not even know who you are. Not unless you make yourself known to them.

I recently had a flashback. I reconnected with an old friend of mine after many years. Someone I have been crazy about for the longest time. Yet it was only a very brief connection: we haven’t really touched base at all. Still, the thoughts of hanging out with this person filled my head. But the anticipation was short lived. I realized quickly the beginning of the road I was on. I stopped and made a U-turn.

I see a big change in my life now. I am more focused and attentive to those physically around me on a day to day basis. I no longer even consider chasing after what is not there.

The freedom that comes from peeling away from your obsession is that you are free yourself. Free to chase after healthy, none-lethal types of obsessions. For instance, I peeled away the need for Frappuccino’s and now I freely chase after ice cream!

And of course, if I am truly obsessed with anyone, that person is the Lord Jesus Christ! He holds my entire attention, and I know that hold His!

Limping on the Hopeful Journey

Christian Living, Discouragement, Encouragement | Posted by Eddy Damas
Nov 08 2016

I suffer from acute gout attacks in my feet, ankles, and knees. At first it started only in either of my big toes, but unfortunately as the years have passed, it’s affected my body all the way up to my knees. Any search on the internet will explain that gout attacks are basically inflammatory arthritis. Think of the cartilages that hold your joints together being attacked by broken glass.

The pain can be mild to really severe. Thankfully they have treatment options which I use: diet, medication,  and cold packs. But I’ve had attacks where I am sidelined for almost two weeks at a time. During these there is little I can do except stay in bed and cry like a baby (sometimes, not always).

The one thing I can say about my gout attacks is that God humbles me through them. I see both sides of God in them: the part of an angry God, and the part where He’s full of mercy – I never know how long I will be down for the count. I will admit, when He’s pressing down on me I don’t enjoy it at all. At times I feel He’s letting me down by allowing me this much pain.

Some articles I’ve read about gout suggest that if a person does not take care of themselves, by losing weight, dieting, and exercising, it can eventually disable you permanently. Would God do such a thing? Disable a man so he can’t walk anymore?
I’m not really sure about that. I mean, it’s happened: God has both disabled and enabled a person.

The key, of course, is to trust Him completely.

When you are in a relationship with God, it’s nearly impossible to close it off. He is the Potter, and we are the clay. Seriously, He is able to find even the microscopical of all cracks. Getting hurt is never easy, but knowing God has a plan in the works, you know you are in a winning situation!

Italian priest blames earthquakes on gay unions

Christian Living, Encouragement, judging, Rememberance, Sin | Posted by Eddy Damas
Nov 05 2016

Why are his words offensive to believers though? I could never understand that reasoning. God Can Do Whatever God Want To Do, especially when Sin is present. Anything touching the topic of Homosexuality is an abomination to God. Even a man putting on a woman’s clothing is an abomination. Should God not react? I guess it’s true that many Catholics just don’t read their Bibles, even the religion’s own priests. If they did perhaps they wouldn’t make such absurd and ridiculous statements!

An Italian priest has said the recent earthquakes that have shaken the country, killing hundreds and leaving tens of thousands homeless, were “divine punishment” for gay civil unions, earning the Vatican’s wrath.

Father Giovanni Cavalcoli, a theologian known for his hardline views, made the comments on October 30, the day central Italy was struck by a 6.6-magnitude quake — the most powerful to hit the country in 36 years — according to Italian media.

It was the third major quake in the same region in just over two months.

Cavalcoli said on Radio Maria that the seismic shocks were “divine punishment” for “the offence to the family and the dignity of marriage, in particular through civil unions”.

The radio station distanced itself from his views and late Friday the Vatican issued a stinging rebuke, saying the idea of a vengeful God was “a pagan vision” dating from “the pre-Christian era”.

Archbishop Angelo Becciu, number two in the Vatican’s powerful Secretariat of State, said Cavalcoli’s comments were “offensive to believers and disgraceful for non-believers”, in remarks reported by Italian media.

Becciu asked for forgiveness from quake victims and reminded them they had the “solidarity and support” of Pope Francis.

But Cavalcoli has refused to back down, insisting to another radio station that earthquakes are indeed caused by “the sins of man” and telling the Vatican to “read their catechism”.

Legislation allowing gay civil unions in Italy only took effect last month, making it the last country in Western Europe to legally recognise same-sex relationships.

One final thought on todays post: Many people, including Christians are under the sad impression that God swiped Sodom and Gomorrah for sins that do not include sodomy/homosexuality. This is entirely false, as it were the threat of homosexuality was the very last straw before God’s ultimate wrath that saw the end of those two great cities: Just moments before the visiting angels told Lot to flee the city, the angels blinded the men knocking at Lot’s door. This appears to be the chief reason today why many Homosexuals either deny their sin, or deny God altogether: God has blinded them!

Here are the Bible verses that the Vatican, and other people simply choose to ignore:

Hebrews 13:1-5 (King James Version)

Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares. Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge. Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

Romans 1:26-28 King James Version (KJV)

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

Jude 1:5-8

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not. And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day. Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. Likewise also these filthy dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.

1 Timothy 1:8-11

But we know that the law is good, if a man use it lawfully; Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, For whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind, for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine; According to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, which was committed to my trust.

Mark 10:6-9

But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female. For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife; And they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

1 Corinthians 7:2

Nevertheless, to avoid fornication, let every man have his own wife, and let every woman have her own husband.

Romans 13:8-10

Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law.

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

Leviticus 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
