Very powerful verse, where do our "excuses" come from? From the wisdom of men.
I remember many years ago, when I was a teenager, I had a woman that claimed to be a pastor, to tell me, "GOD don't make no junk. Be proud of who and what HE made you, a gay man."
How sad it is to know there are actually people who call themselves pastors & preachers and men & women of GOD, and they continue to be the devils advocates.
There is nothing like reading The Word, no mans wisdom can compare to it! GOD is so Good! All The Time! Make no mistakes about that Beloved!! When that ole devil is on your heel, telling you that it's "okay", you were "born that way" or "created that way", there is one sure way to recognize that it isn't from GOD.... because the very idea completely goes against the very intention of GOD'S Creation from the beginning.
JESUS reiterates, many times, that GOD made them "male and female" so that they can "become one flesh". The woman, made from the rib of man, is placed back where she belongs, thus becoming "one flesh" with her husband.
Two ribs (two women) cannot become one flesh. Neither can two males become one flesh. The only way to become "one flesh" is to join the rib back to where it came from, with the male.
We are Created male or female, not "born" male or female. HE knew us before we were even in the womb! HE knew us before we ever took our first breath! HE knew HIS Plans for us! Hallelujah! Thank YOU, JESUS!!!
JESUS, being fully GOD, did not accept or condone any sin, HE Loved and spoke Truth! HE spoke Truth, in Love, because HE is Love! Just remember, that HE is also judgement and wrath, it is only by HIS Grace and HIS Mercy that we come to, and remain in, HIM. Amen.
HE does not send anyone to hell, HE merely honors their choice to go.
