By ROBERT DAVISON Minister Laurel Ave. Church of Christ With all that is being written and said today about homosexuality, once considered too personal and objectionable to even be discussed publicly, it might be worth our time to consider frankly what the Bible says about it. The earliest mention of any homosexual acts in the Bible is in Gen. 19 where the men of Sodom were attempting to force themselves upon Lot's visitors. It was such acts which brought the wrath of God upon their city as corroborated in Jude verse 7. Homosexuality, whether between "consenting adults" or not (the Bible makes no such distinction), is described as an abomination in the Law of Moses (Lev. 18:22) and was punishable by death (Lev. 20:13). The New Testament also speaks of homosexuality only in terms of sin, ranking it along with fornication, murder and many other base things, in Rom. 1:24-32. Paul lists it in I Tim. l :9-10 along with lying, murder of parents, etc. as being "contrary to sound doctrine." He even specifically affirms in I Cor. 6:9-10 that anyone who practices such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. In view of the emphatic nature of the Bible teaching on homosexuality, this writer finds it difficult to understand how anyone who accepts the Bible as the word of God, could actually defend it as a moral practice. It is sin. What, then, should be our attitude toward the homosexual? We should feel compassion, as we would for any weakness Of the flesh such as drunkenness or fornication. V Anyone who is overcome in a weakness needs sympathetic understanding and help. But the nature of such help should be to restore that person to a righteous course of action (Gal. 6:1-2) not to condone his sin. We don't encourage alcoholics to remain alcoholics. Neither should we encourage anyone to follow a course of action which is plainly against God's revealed will. Homosexual acts are sins which can be repented of and forgiven just as any other sin can be erased by the Grace of God. Romanian pastor challenges Communism's atheistic theories By GEORGE W. CORNELL AP Religion Writer NEW YORK (AP) -- A surprising idea has sprouted in Communist Eastern Europe -- that the character of the selfless man serving others, Jesus, is the needed " ,- model for Marxism. "Jesus Christ is not the enemy of this society," writes a Baptist pastor in Ploesti, Romania, Josif Ton. "He is its only chance." That unusual thesis, raised as a challenge to the atheist policy of communism, had made the Oxford- educated Ton a target of investigations in his home j , land, but it also has gained him a wide following among students and intellectuals. The Marxist system was predicated on developing a "new man," free of egotistical corruption and greed, Ton says in his analysis, but its atheist assumptions reject the selftranscending motives necessary todoiL ', Consequently, "socialist society finds, itself in a paradoxical situation," he writes in his controversial paper, extensive excerpts of which were published in the evangelical fortnightly, Christianity Today. In teaching people that they are only chance combinations of matter, governed by Darwinian laws of adaptation and survival, their attitudes determined by environment, people "lack the motivation for goodness," Ton says. "They see that in a purely material world only he who hurries and grabs for himself possesses anything." Since Marxism, to work, needs to produce noble character of high aspiration, ready to sacrifice self for society's common good, Ton says the "only answer" to the problem is in history's supreme self-giving example. It is "the ideology of the lane who possessed the most noble character of all, Jesus Christ, who sacrificed himself for the good of his fellow men. "In Scripture and in history, we can see that wherever the spirit of Christ's teaching was accepted and assimilated in its totality, the result was a noble life put to the service of the common good, even at the cost of self-sacrifice." Ton has been a center, of ferment ever since his paper was issued in Romania about a year ago and initially was subjected to days of interrogation, his books confiscated. But public opinion so far has kept 'him out of jail. "GOD'S GRACE GIFT TO MAN" SUNDAY DEC. 19TH 7:00 P.M.
