?Parable? not an equal comparison

?The parable of Pete? by Bob Woelk (March 11) is a skillfully written editorial. However, comparing left-handed people to homosexuals is not comparing apples to apples.

God has spoken concerning homosexuality and declared it morally wrong, which He did not do about being left-handed:

? ?You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.? (Lev. 18:22)

? ?For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.? (Rom. 1:26-27)

? ?Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.? (I Cor. 6:9-10)

? ?Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.? (Jude 7)

As Mr. Woelk pointed out, ?the tide is shifting, times are changing.? But God?s Truth remains forever settled. Woe is us if we contradict our Creator and Judge.
