In September 2012, the United Nations Human Rights Office published “Born Free and Equal”, which outlines core obligations that States have towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons.
On the surface, this document appears harmless. Everyone would agree that no individual should be tortured, discriminated against or have their rights as a human being denied them. But it is the underlying intentions of the booklet, which grant those individuals living LGBT lifestyles special rights that should grab our attention.
Why? According to the Bible, any nation or entity that accepts and promotes homosexuality is doomed to fail and from a Christian perspective, being part of that system and its demise is simply not acceptable. It is quite obvious that the booklet is full of issues that are diametrically opposed to the Bible. What are they and why are they important?
It states: “…international human rights law prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity…just like race, sex, colour, or religion – are impermissible bases for distinction. From the beginning, the United Nations is supporting the notion that individuals are born gay and that choice is not an option, which is unbiblical.
The criminalization of homosexuality is based on biblical principles. Look at what has happened right here in America. Are you aware that several of the thirteen original colonies based their anti-sodomy laws on Leviticus 20:13 and that these laws continued to be embraced by all 50 states until 1960? Since then, the majority of the states have now repealed the laws. As a result, the United States now has a president that has openly affirmed his support for same-sex marriage, which is in direct contradiction to the Bible. These types of decisions invite the judgments of God on a nation!
