This will be short and sweet because we have several articles about homosexuality on our website (click on Letters and Opinion page and scroll down to the subhead: Let's get Biblical about sexual sin, porn, homosexuality and pedophelia!).
In a recent interview, Cook said: "While I have never denied my sexuality, I haven’t publicly acknowledged it either, until now. So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me.".
If someone feels they are gay, fine. But to drag God into it – as Tim Cook did, stating that God gave him this “gift” – well, that’s when Believers MUST step back and go, “Whoah!”
So, let us be clear: God NEVER, EVER said homosexuality was a “gift.” Never. If that is what Tim Cook believes, then he does NOT know Scripture! He can be "gay" all he wants, but he cannot involve God or the Bible to support his lifestyle. YHWH calls homosexual acts “an abomination.” He never reversed that - as is evident throughout Scripture. Some examples:
Leviticus 18:22 - You are not to go to bed with a man as with a woman; it is an abomination. (CJB)
1 Corinthians 6:9 Or don't you know, that the unrighteous will not inherit the Kingdom of Elohim? Make no mistake! Neither sexual sinners, nor idol-worshippers, nor adulterers, nor the corrupt, nor men who lay down with other men, 10. Nor the oppressors, nor thieves, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, will inherit the Kingdom of Elohim. (Aramaic English New Testament)
Revelation 22:14 How blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they have the right to eat from the Tree of Life and go through the gates into the city! 15 Outside are the homosexuals, those who misuse drugs in connection with the occult, the sexually immoral, murderers, idol-worshippers, and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
1 Thessalonians 4:3 For this is the will of God, your sanctification; that is, that you abstain from sexual immorality....
Our prayer is that Tim Cook and every other homosexual will come to realize what the above scriptures mean. The ONLY reason we have been speaking out against homosexuality is because we are Believers, and we are tired of homosexuals forcing their lifestyles on the entire world as being "normal" and insisting it is sanctioned by God, when it is clearly not! The Bible considers homosexuality to be sexual SIN. Continuous, deliberate sin of any kind will prevent you from entering into the Kingdom.
Be "gay" - but do NOT lie about what The Creator said! You have no right to twist Scripture into saying something it does not! (God only knows, Believers themselves are doing a good enough job of twisting Scripture to suit all their respective agendas!) YES, He loves you! But He also expects HIS people to be holy/set apart.
