Use these cards to teach people to do what Jesus would do, which is to love us all by guiding us away from our sins.
Jesus died on the cross to save us from the eternal punishment of sin and open up the gates of Heaven. But that wasn’t all He did. Jesus also had the great mission of teaching us how to not sin. He became “The Way” to Heaven, for all of us who sin after our baptism, to teach us how to take up our crosses and follow Him. Jesus taught us how to truly see our sins for what they are, and how to hate all sin. He also taught us how to receive His grace (help) for the strength to not commit them. We are all sinners, and God shows His love for us by leading us to the path of eternal life.
As we witness poor souls seemingly stricken with homosexual or transgender dispositions, especially that of innocent children, the evil one uses our lack of understanding as to why they are suffering from these disordered attractions to somehow justify their sins in our minds as not being sinful. Our hearts are meant to love, and Satan deliberately uses that desire to love by severely thwarting and misguiding our compassion for others. He convinces us to think that homosexual and transgender choices can’t possibly be sinful if even innocent children seem to be afflicted with these temptations. Then this misguided compassion declares these sins are just fine—or not even a sin at all—despite the Word of God clearly opposing and condemning such behavior.
Of course we should love everyone, and have great compassion for their struggles. However, we can never justify sin of any kind—no matter how it came about. How a sinful action comes about, or where the temptation originated from, doesn’t somehow make a sin not sinful—a sin is a sin. All sin is wrong and never leads to true happiness. Children and adults alike are burdened with countless temptations to commit all sorts of sins, and sexual sins are no different. Until someone is mature enough to gain “full knowledge” of right from wrong from the knowledge God has placed in everyone’s conscience, as with young children, all actions they commit, even sexual sins, God doesn’t hold them accountable for their crimes against Him until “full knowledge” is gained.
We must remember that when someone is drawn to sins of a sexual nature, it does not—in any way—justify it in God’s eyes. It is still a sin. Our sins HURT GOD whom we should love and they hurt us too. The devil loves to cloud our vision so we can see our sins as not being a problem to see no guilt or need to change. This leads to false, temporary happiness, which will most certainly lead to our eternal damnation. We must hate and reject all sin if we are to accept God’s saving mercy. God has most clearly shown us that sin is not okay, and this particular sin offends Him greatly. If a soul does not repent from this sin—or any sin—it permanently rejects God’s saving mercy and chooses Hell forever. What a tragedy that is! We must do everything we can to save the souls of all of God’s children—even those stricken by homosexuality and transgenderism—as they shouldn’t be banished into Hell because of our ignorance or misguided compassion. God wants to use us to help save them. We need to teach that all sin is wrong, no matter how or why we are tempted by it. We must seek God’s helping grace and rely on His power, in order to put a stop to sin, so that we all will come to love Him above all else and desire eternal life.
God’s commands are clear:
“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.” Leviticus 20:13
“A woman shall not wear a man’s garment, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for anyone who does such things is an abomination to the Lord, your God.” Deuteronomy 22:5
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators [sexual relations outside of marriage], nor idolaters [desiring anything above God], nor adulterers, nor effeminate [transgender], nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous [want what others have], nor drunkards, nor revilers [causing fights], nor swindlers [scammers], will inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9
“We know that the law is good, provided that one uses it as law, 9 with the understanding that law is meant not for a righteous person but for the lawless and unruly, the godless and sinful, the unholy and profane, those who kill their fathers or mothers, murderers, the unchaste, sodomites [homosexual], kidnappers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is opposed to sound teaching, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God, with which I have been entrusted.” 1 Timothy 1:8-11
“But from the beginning of creation, ‘God made them male and female.’” Mark 10:6
“No fornicator [sex out side of marriage] or impure person [participates in watching, wearing, speaking, thinking or doing anything sexually immoral]…has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” Ephesians 2:17
St. Paul declares homosexual acts as “shameless acts” in Romans 1:26-32.
“So the Lord said: The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great, and their sin so grave.” Genesis 18:20
“Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which, in the same manner as they, indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural lust, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.” Jude 1:7
St. Bernardine of Siena states, “No sin has greater power over the soul than the one of cursed sodomy [unnatural sexual behaviors such as anal or oral sex], which was always detested by all those who lived according to God.”
“Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body [the punishment will be in his own body].” 1 Corinthians 6:18
“More souls go to hell for sins of the flesh [sexual sins] than for any other reason.” Our Lady of Fatima
“Be sure of this, that no immoral or impure or greedy person, that is, an idolater [love the pleasures of this world over God], has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.” Ephesians 5:5
“The works of the flesh are obvious: fornication [sexual relations without marriage], impurity [wearing, watching, participating or listening to sexually suggestive material], licentiousness [lack of sexual self-control], idolatry [loving anything more than God or worshiping a false God], sorcery [obtaining power through evil], enmities [hostility towards others], strife [creating conflict], jealousy [wanting things of others], anger [hostility towards others–lack of love], quarrels [making arguments], dissensions [causing disputes], factions [fighting with a group],
envy [wanting someone else’s qualities], drunkenness [self-induced lack of mental control], carousing [partying outside of moderation], and things like these. I am warning you, as I warned you before: those who do such things [any of these things] will NOT inherit the kingdom of God”(Galatians 5:19).
“I fear that when I come again, my God may humble me before you, and that I may have to mourn over many who previously sinned and have not repented of the impurity, sexual immorality, and licentiousness that they have practiced.” 2 Corinthians 12:21
There is nothing holy or pure about unnatural sex. “God did not call us to impurity but to holiness.” 1 Thessalonians 4:7
