PAG-IBIG ATBP.

Kasalanan ba ang maging bakla o tomboy?

rainbowLGBT

Sobrang dami kong nakikitang posts at mga status sa Facebook patungkol sa LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) at same-sex marriage. Kanya-kanyang  palitan na din ng kanilang profile picture na may colored rainbow. May mga nagtatanong din sa akin personally sa Facebook if ano daw ba ang masasabi ko sa isyu na ito. May mga taong personal ding nagtanong sa akin. So, ano nga ba ang personal kong masasabi dito?

Bago ko simulan ito, nais ko munang magbigay ng kaunting disclaimer. Sinulat ko ang blog na ito dahil ito ay aking karapatan.

Ayon sa Universal Declaration of Human Rights ng United Nations:

Article 18:

Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Article 19:

Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.

Ang mga sumusunod ay bilang kalayaan kong magpahayag ng aking saloobin at opinyon bilang isang Kristiyano. Ituloy natin.

Ano ang sinasabi ng Bibliya ukol dito? Three points. Madami iyan actually pero ito na lang ang ibabahagi ko.

1. Romans 1:26-28

26 That is why God abandoned them to their shameful desires. Even the women turned against the natural way to have sex and instead indulged in sex with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sexual relations with women, burned with lust for each other. Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved. 28 Since they thought it foolish to acknowledge God, he abandoned them to their foolish thinking and let them do things that should never be done.

Para mas simple, tingnan natin ang mga batas sa ating bansa. Halimbawa ay ang Batas Trapiko. Sa tingin ninyo, bakit kinailangang magkaroon pa ng ganitong batas? Bakit may speed limit? Bakit kailangang register ang mga sasakyan? Bakit kailangang pumasa muna sa emission test? Bakit kailangan may head light o warning signs? Bakit may mga lugar na bawal mag-over take? Bakit dapat naka-seat belt? Etc… Ito ay para sa ating pansariling kaligtasan at sa kaligtasan ng nakararami. Imagine kung walang ganitong batas? Chaos.

Hindi ko alam if malinaw ba ang analogy. Wala na kasi akong maisip kung paano iyon sasabihin sa simpleng salita.

Ayaw din ni God na magkaroon tayo ng buhay na chaotic kaya may mga bagay na “hindi dapat”. Kaya kung mababasa ninyo ang Bible, tinatawag na “Law of the Lord” ang Kanyang mga instructions at commandments. Sabihin nating walang masama (sa paningin ng tao) kung gagawin natin ang mga bagay na iyon pero sa huli… “We must all stand before Christ to be judged. We will each receive whatever we deserve for the good or evil we have done in this earthly body.” (2 Corinthians 5:10).

2. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11

9 Don’t you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, 10 or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people—none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. 11 Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Ang Kingdom of God ay hindi lang naman ang makapunta sa ‘heaven’. For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too. (Romans 14:17-18)

Ang Kingdom ni God ay ang pagkakaroon ng kapayapaan sa ating mga puso. Pagkakaroon ng isang buhay na walang ikinikimkim na sama ng loob at galit. Pagkakaroon ng masayang pamilya at mga kaibigan. Ito ay ang pagkakaroon ng buhay na kaaya-aya sa paningin ng Diyos. Buhay na pinagpapala ni Lord. Buhay na may integridad. Buhay na handang mangarap. Buhay na maaaring tularan ng iba. Buhay na may pag-asa at pananampalataya. Buhay na may prinsipyo. Buhay na may purpose. Buhay na punong puno ng pagmamahal.

3. 1 Corinthians 6:18-20

18 Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. 19 Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, 20 for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

Kapag nakipagtalik ka sa kapwa mo lalaki o sa kapwa mo babae… Wait! Paano nga ba ang pagtatalik nila? Oral sex? Anal Sex? Alam ba ninyong iyan ang isa sa mga dahilan kung bakit laganap ang AIDS o HIV?

Sabi daw sa verse, RUN! Takbo ka daw! Fun run?LOL!

Ano ang masasabi ko? Three points din.

1. Mahal ka ng Diyos.

I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness. –Jeremiah 31:3

1 You have searched me, Lord, and you know me. 13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 17 How precious to me are your thoughts, God! How vast is the sum of them! – Psalm 139:1, 13, 14, 17

Ang sweet ni Lord! Kung may forever na matatawag, ito talaga iyon! Everlasting love daw! Pero sa totoo lang, mahal ka ng Diyos kahit ano pa ang iyong nakaraan at naging mga kasalanan. Ang tanging gusto lang Niya ay mapalapit ka sa Kanya.

2. May plano si God para sa iyo.

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. ­– Jeremiah 29:11

Ang Globe, Smart, at Sun Cellular na network companies ay may tinatawag na plan. Papatalo ba si God? Siyempre may plano siya para sa iyo! Nawa’y lumakad ka sa nakalaang plano Niya para sa iyo.

3. Ang katotohanan mula kay God ang magpapalaya sa iyo.

31 To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, “If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. 32 Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” –John 8:31-32

Kaya mahalaga talaga na founded tayo sa Word of God para may basehan ang ating mga perspektibo sa mga bagay-bagay. Dahil magkakaiba ang ating pinaniniwalaan, maaaring magkakaiba din talaga ang magiging sagot natin sa title ng blog post na ito.

Ano naman ang masasabi nila? Three points din. 🙂

1. Sabi ni Ate Inah:

If indeed God makes no mistakes, why then do we think we have an option to choose which gender we are because of how we feel?

If indeed we strive for equality, then why are Christians being prejudiced against by believing that God does not intend for the same gender to marry? Are we wrong to believe in what the Bible says? It is already written, we are not changing it to conform with the times! Homosexuality is a personal decision, not the original design. I know this. I was part of the LGBT!

As much as I have respect and love for people in the LGBT community, I have EVEN MORE respect for those who decide to be men and women of integrity – no matter the temptation, no matter the ease of transitioning into something that is now so socially acceptable – because they honor and value the Masterpiece that God created them to be.

As for me, my conviction and decision brought me the life I have now. Seeing my children with their father, I would not trade it for anything!

I am a Woman, proud and loud! Love wins indeed.

2. Sabi ni Kuya Rei Lemuel Crizaldo sa Pananaw Pinoy:

Sa huli, ang pagtanggap sa same-sex marriage bilang isang legit na karapatan sa lipunan ay hindi nangangahulugan na sinasang-ayunan na ito ng Bibliya. Tandaan natin, “what is legal is not always biblical and what is biblical need not always be acknowledged as legal.” ‘Wag din natin kalimutan na minsan na din namang ‘hinayaan’ ng Diyos ang mga tao sa kanilang masamang nais at ‘di tumpak ng asal (basahin ang Roma 1:24-28). Hindi na nag-expect ng mataas ang Diyos sa mga taong in the first place ay ayaw namang kumilala at sumunod sa Kanya. Ganyan na din siguro, at the very least, ang pwedeng gawin ng mga Christians. Pero, hindi ito dapat maging hadlang upang patuloy na ipangaral ng simbahan ang original na biblical design para kasal. ‘Ito naman marahil, at the most, ang inaasahan ni Jesus mula sa kanyang mga alagad.

Basahin ang buong artikulo ni Kuya Rei (Same-Sex Marriage, Nararapat Ba?).

3. Sabi naman sa 700 Club Asia:

Panoodin niyo na lang ang videos kasi mahaba kapag isusulat ko pa. 😉

“At least may nag-aalaga sa iyo. Pero at the back of your mind, masaya ka ba?…” – Stephen

Isang tatay na gay fashion designer na binago ng Diyos. Ang kuwento ni Pastor Art Duyan.

Bilang pagtatapos, sabi nga ni Apostle Paul sa 1 Corinthians 10:23 Everything is PERMISSIBLE, but everything isn’t BENEFICIAL. Everything is permitted, but everything doesn’t build others up.

Ikaw, ano ang opinyon mo?

“Dahil sa isang bansang may demokrasya, opinyon ng bawat isa ay mahalaga.” – Pananaw Pinoy

“Hindi lang opinyon mo ang mahalaga. Ikaw mismo ay mahalaga! You are valuable. :-)” –Doctor Eamer

Para naman sa picture ng aking blog. Ito ay isang rainbow. Alam niyo ba kung ano ang ibig sabihin ng rainbow/bahaghari?

Unang nabanggit ang rainbow sa Bible sa Book of Genesis. A rainbow appears right after the great worldwide flood brought in order to remove sinful and evil-minded man from the earth. It symbolized God’s mercy and the covenant He made with Noah (representing mankind) not to destroy the world in such a way again.

12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come:13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. 14 Whenever I bring clouds over the earth and the rainbow appears in the clouds, 15 I will remember my covenant between me and you and all living creatures of every kind. Never again will the waters become a flood to destroy all life. (Genesis 9:12-15)

At least ngayon, alam niyo na. 🙂

    Ganun talaga Bro. Mahirap matanggap ng lipunan ang salita ng Bibliya. God gave us His laws not because He hates us, but LOVES us. He gave us the Bible to have an instruction manual on how to live this life. For us, Christians, let us not condemn the LGBT community but rather help them change their lives and lead them to Christ.

    Nagsulat din ako ng article about dito, bro. I hope okay lang ilagay ko ang link dito.

      Sureness Ate Tin! But Pinoy kasi ang audience ng blogs ko kaya pang Filipino lang. Tagalog kasi. 🙂 Mas kaya kong i-express ang gusto kong sabihin kapag tagalog eh.haha

      Kung maisipan mong gumawa ng article na English, I would love to share it to my international friends too. 🙂

      Let’s influence the world, one blog at a time. Cheers to blogging!

      • Amen to that! 😀 Don’t worry, God called each one of us for a specific purpose to accomplish one common goal come God’s perfect time. Sa akin kasi mas gamay ko din ang Ingles. hehe Pero nagta-Tagalog din naman ako. 😀

        Will seek for God’s revelation and guidance when I do write the LGBT article. My prayers are with you always bro! Keep it up! 🙂

    Di pala na-post kahapon comment ko dito. Cellphone kasi gamit ko. I meant to say congratulations again for nailing this topic, Joseph! I was so engrossed reading it while cooking kaya nasunog sauce niluto ko, lol! Anyway, the points you presented here are in agreement with my beliefs. Kahit kailan di ako sang-ayon sa same sex marriage and as a parent here in the US, di ko maiwasan mangamba kasi I have 4 kids who will be exposed to this.

    i didnt read the whole blog… but im guessing you’re not agree on same-sex marriage… and so do i. Its simply because its breakin God’s law… so i stand to it. I do not agree but we cant do anything now… mas lumalala ang mga tao sa mundo.
