Question? I must know, Does Romans Chp. 1 say that those of the LGBTQ lifestyle cannot be saved as one YouTube pastor I have heard say?
Answer: NO, that pastor IS WRONG…
In the bible there is ONLY ONE “Unpardonable Sin” and that is the “Sin of Unbelief” in other words NOT trusting Christ and HIS payment alone for sin.
The moment someone says that a certain sin or sins will keep someone from being saved or cannot be saved HAS ADDED conditions and works to the Gospel.
In Romans chp 1, Verse 24 where it says that God “Gave them up” is speaking of being “Given Over To (allow to suffer) The Consequences” of those sins not God withholding or taking away eternal life from them.
Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves.
Verse 26 and V27 lend proof to this as well.
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence (payment or consequence) of their error which was meet.
A drunk may lose his driver’s license, lose his Job, be put in Jail for a period of time, or pay the ultimate price…Death or even worse, kill someone
The same is true for those of the LGBTQ lifestyle.
The consequence may be that they get AIDS, or some other horrible uncurable transmitted disease.
In fact I KNOW of a Christian who is a homosexual, they know it’s wrong, and they have paid a GREAT PRICE in many ways for that sin BUT as the bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:15, They are Saved.
If any man’s work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire.
Saved BUT have no blessings from God in this life.
Saved BUT no Rewards in heaven waiting for them.
Christ paid for ALL SIN past, present and future, If there was one sin left not paid he still be dead in the grave, but to the contrary he is risen and every sin has been paid for IN FULL, Christ Resurrection was proof of that.
Besides all that, Every person that is living today, has lived, and will live ALL their sins were future when Christ went to the cross.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.
The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
