Deuteronomy 32:31-33, “For their rock is not as our Rock, even our enemies themselves being judges. For their vine is of the vine of Sodom, and of the fields of Gomorrah: their grapes are grapes of gall, their clusters are bitter: Their wine is the poison of dragons, and the cruel venom of asps.”
In the verses above, I have specifically made note two phrases and because they correspond with one another. The vine of Sodom produces the poison of dragons, and the fields of Gomorrah contain the asp with his venomous bite. With this in mind let us discuss, the wine of Sodom and the venom of Gomorrah as it deals with the sin of sodomy.
Let me preface this article by first stating that I do indeed realize that this is a delicate topic that must be handled with extreme caution by the author. I will in no way violate the laws of appropriateness as it would pertain to youthful minds. On the same note, I fear that we shy away from this topic while the world screams about its perverted view of this topic on a daily basis. It is time for those who are truly men of God to step up and have a voice to condemn the acts of sin that attempt to fly under the banner of human rights.
Satan has an agenda to blind the minds of our youth into believing that a lifestyle of Sodomy is totally acceptable and normal; however, the simple facts speak for themselves. “Gay and bisexual men remain at the epicenter of the HIV/AIDS epidemic,” says Jonathan Mermin, the director of the CDC’s division of HIV/AIDS prevention.” (CDC stands for Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)… The following statement was found on an internet news site. “While homosexualists have actively suppressed such statistics in the past and focused on portraying HIV/AIDS as a disease affecting the whole population in an equal fashion, the statistics’ increasing undeniability has forced their hand. Rather than admit any inherent problem with homosexual practice itself, however, the apparent prevalence of disease among practicing homosexuals has led them to switch tactics and use these statistics to urge governments and other organizations to increase support to the homosexual communities.” The above statements were not taken from Christian writings, but from purely medical and secular viewpoints. Statistics only back up the Biblical truth found in our opening verses.
The vines of Sodom produce dragon’s poison, and the fields of Gomorrah contain the venomous asps. Don’t drink of the vines of Sodom, my friend, and don’t play in the fields of Gomorrah! Sodomy is sin, not a disease, though it can cause a disease that is extremely lethal. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…” Am I so extreme to call sodomy sin? Men choose to sin, just as sodomy is sin. Science has been unable to prove that sodomy is something with which you are born. “At best, the evidence for a genetic and/or biological basis to homosexual orientation is inconclusive. In fact, since the early 1990s, numerous studies attempting to establish a genetic cause for homosexuality have not proven to be valid or repeatable…” That statement was issued by a family advocacy organization. Everywhere we turn it seems as though the only answer to sodomy is that it is a conscious choice made by individuals who violate biblical moral principles, thus it is labeled as sin. James 1:15 says, “…and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.”
This article is not meant to bring about malicious hate towards sodomites. The sodomite is a sinner in need of a Saviour just as much as the drunk and the liar. Sin is sin, and a sinner is a sinner, therefore let’s follow Christ’s example in hating the sin, but loving the sinner. I have absolutely no problem with leading a sodomite to Christ, they need Jesus too. I despise the lifestyle, I love the soul of the individual. They are people just like you and me, though they have been poisoned by the vine of Sodom, and bitten by the asps of Gomorrah.
