Verses from Bible hightlight issue of homosexuality

Published 11/11/2015

Brian McClinton (Write Back, November 5) says Christians are selective in the verses they quote from the Bible. Perhaps I could be allowed to point him to some it seems he has never read?

Romans 1 v18: "The wrath of God is revealed from Heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who hold the truth in unrighteousness."

Verse 24: "God gave them up to uncleanness through the lust of their own hearts to defile there own bodies between themselves."

Verse 26: "God gave them up to vile affections, for even the women changed the natural use into that which is against nature and likewise the men leaving the natural use of the women, burned in their lust one towards another, men with men working that which is unseemly."

God showed His anger against Sodom and obliterated it because of his hate of homosexuality.

God has shown His wrath not only on Sodom, but similarly on Pompeii (Luke 17 v 29): "The day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from Heaven and destroyed them all."

Why would we want to bring down the vengeance of Almighty God upon our little province?
