This is my blog entry for Friday, August 26, 2016. I typically don’t state the date for my blog posts, but since I think that this is going to be a ‘hot’ topic posting, it’s best to remember when it happened…like Pearl Harbor. Let the hate mail begin.
If you are a reader of the Senses Novels Series, you may or may not have noticed the absence of homosexual and bisexual individuals in my books. While I have heard about people claiming to be gay and Christian, regardless of what they wish to think, the two are mutually exclusive. I do not want the LGBT community to believe I bear them any ill will, I don’t. It’s just that if you want to ‘come out with the truth’, at least face the whole truth.
Jesus in Matthew 5:17-18 said, “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished.”
And part of that law deals with men laying with men and women laying with women. I don’t think that I am homophobic (I do not have an unreasonable fear or hatred of homosexuals), but my novels are written for a Christian base. My personal views on homosexuality in any form are simple, it is not something I would do, I think that it fits the definition of sin (rebellion against God), but that’s who Jesus came for, sinners. I don’t hate the sinner, just the sin itself. It's trite, but really do know and love several homosexual friends. I had (past tense, unfortunately) a first cousin that was a homosexual whom I loved very much, but I don’t support the LGBT community or its agenda. People want to believe that love is love and that it is their right to define what marriage is. I respectfully disagree because long before marriage was a legal term, it was God given gift. It was given to Adam and Eve in the garden.
I am sure that what I’ve written is going to make some people angry and some people sad. That’s okay; I don’t expect everyone to agree with me. Usually, I wouldn’t even write about things like this in my blog, but I have recently been getting a number of followers on my Twitter page that are openly LGBT, and I think that they need to understand where I, as a writer am coming from. None of my novels will ever have a main character that is gay. None of my books will ever show homosexuality in a positive light.
If you want to understand why, I recommend that you download and at least read the first book in the series. It’s completely FREE which means that all you are spending is a few moments of your time downloading and some time reading. You can get the first book, AURA, on Amazon.
