In a similar vein, I am often asked how I 'feel' about “Gay marriage.” My response is usually the same, “The Bible doesn't approve of it and neither do I.” (See Genesis 19 and Romans 1:24-32)
This usually produces a negative response from the questioner. My thought process is this; if a toddler were able to get their hands on a medical device that allowed them to reach inside your body and remove any organ they wanted, would you let them? If the answer is, “No,” then why should our response be any different? Are we greater than God? No, not even close! The Bible tells us, “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9
If Jesus really is, “The word became flesh,” then who are we to try and remove the parts someone may deem as undesirable? As a Christian, we no longer run our lives based on our 'feelings' but on the word of God, The Holy Bible!
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes. . .” Romans 1:16
People have even told me that Jesus never said anything negative about gays or their lifestyle. My response is, “How do you know?” John 21:25 tells us, “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.”
Have you ever been near a homosexual and you just know they are gay? Maybe it's nothing overtly obvious, you just know? Scientists have recently discovered that trees secretly talk to each other underground using mycorrhizal fungi. “Scientists call the fungi the “Wood Wide Web” because ‘adult’ trees can share sugars to younger trees, sick trees can send their remaining resources back into the network for others, and they can communicate with each other about dangers like insect infestations.”
Scientists are just beginning to become familiar with the, “100 trillion microbes that call us [humans] home; collectively known as the microbiome.” Human beings have a microbial garden that surrounds them and lives inside them. What if our bodies are sending and receiving signals from the biosphere of other humans around us, similar to a tree fungi network? If, for example, someone has HIV or AIDS and their host body is dying, could their microbiome be trying to find a new host before it dies?
While scientists are still learning about everything that encompasses our physical existence, as Christians, we will not discount the non-physical part of life, the demonic spirits the bible warns us about in Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
The bible, in James 4:7, tells us to resist the devil so he'll flee from us. 1 Corinthians 5:6 says, “Sin is like “a little yeast spreads through the whole batch of dough.”
Because we trust Jesus as our savior, as Christians, we can trust the whole bible as the council of God. In God [all of God] we trust!
