CultureWatch: Truth, Lies and Homosexuality

by Bill Muehlenberg

The Bible is crystal clear about the unnatural and sinful condition of homosexuality, and it also tells us why those in this lifestyle surround themselves with lies and deception. Lifestyles of unrighteousness and rebellion always result in a rejection of truth.

This general point is expressed well in Hebrews 3:13 where we read about “the deceitfulness of sin.” And Romans 1 absolutely nails this, leaving us in no doubt why sin and deception are so intimately connected. In Romans 1:18 we find this: “The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of people, who suppress the truth by their wickedness.”
