Romans, Gays, Lesbian’s, King James Version, God
In Romans chapter 1 in the King James Version the writer is inspired to put into words what is a very controversial issue in our word today in 2011.
Just recently President Obama signed into law that gays and lesbians can now serve in the military without being persecuted or looked down upon by being a person having a same sex partner.
But according to the word of God this kind of behavior is not condoned or approved by God.
The word of God in the book of Romans 1:23, 24 as translated in the King James Version describe man as being corruptible, unclean, and lustful in the heart.
The reason that man is described in this manner is reviled in Romans 1:24 as the writer begins to describe how women and men dishonor their bodies by having same sex relations.
Women having sex with women and men having sex with men as described in verse 26 the writer calls this vile affections.
In verse 21 the writer describes men and women as having vain imaginations and these imaginations cause a person to become foolish in their heart and believe its ok to have same sex relationships.
This passage in Romans also states in 1:28 that God gives this type person over to a reprobate mind.

With what the word of God states and what President Obama states by signing a law approving of Gays, Lesbian’s, concerning military service may speed up the end of time to come more quickly.
May God bless America and forgive those who trespass against the word of God.
