In this context, a heretic is defined as a religious hypocrite. One who professes or holds out that he is a Christian or follower of God, but by word or action is in fact a follower of Satan. One who knowing the truth, wickedly or callously is led away from the truth, and “who knowing the judgment of God, that they who commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”
Accordingly, it is the intention of what follows to show that our good President and all those who subscribe to his damnable heresy, are worthy of death as heretics, and if not actually burned in this life, will burn in the judgment to come.
Let me now set forth the irrefutable case against them, count by count as laid out by God’s word. In the Book of Leviticus, God laid out seventeen specific prohibitions, all having to do with marriage, sexual relationships, with the universally accepted prohibited degrees of sanguinity, affinity, or morality. (Lev 18: 4-6, 7-21)
Verses 4 -6 are the preamble to the law beginning at verse 7.
Verse 4. You shall do my judgments, and keep mine Ordinances to walk therein: I am the Lord Thy God. The words are clear and need no elucidation.
Verse 5: You shall therefore keep my statutes, and my judgments, which if a man practices, he shall live in them. I am the Lord. Verse 5 is an amplification of verse 4, and likewise needs no further clarification.
Verse 6: None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness; I am the Lord. Verse 6 contains the general prohibition. It is a prohibition against marriage or sexual relationship to those who are within certain specifically prohibited degrees of sanguinity or affinity.
Verse 7: The Nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shall thou not uncover.
Verse 8: The nakedness of thy father’s wife; it is thy father’s nakedness.
Verse 9: The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or the daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or abroad.
Verse 10: The nakedness of thy son’s daughter, or of thy daughter’s daughter
Verse 11: The nakedness of thy father’s wife daughter, she is thy sister.
Verse 12: Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father’s sister. She is thy kinswoman.
Verse 13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother’s sister; for she is thy mother’s near kinswoman.
Verse 14: Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy fathers brother. Thou shalt not approach to his wife; she is thine aunt.
Verse 15. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter in law; she is thy son’s wife.
Verse 16. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother’s wife. It is thy brother’s nakedness.
Verse 17. Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, nor her son’s daughter, or her daughter’s daughter, for they are her near kinswoman. It is wickedness.
Verse 18. Neither shall thou take a wife to her sister, to irritate her, beside her during her lifetime.
Verse 19. Also thou shalt not approach unto a woman to uncover her nakedness, as long as she is put apart for her uncleanness.
Verse 20. Moreover thou shall not lie carnally with thy neighbor’s wife, to defile thyself with her.
Verse 21 Thou shall not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God. I am the Lord.
Verse 22. Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind. It is abomination
Verse 23. Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto; it is confusion.
Verse 24. Defile not yourself in any of these things; for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you.
Obviously, each and every one of these prohibitions is deemed to be important to God the Creator, and each if infringed carries the penalty appropriate to sin. A breach of God’s set standard is an affront to God, whether it is fornication, adultery, lasciviousness, homosexuality, lesbianism, bestiality, or any other form of sin or wickedness.
Can one imagine a law that would make it lawful for a man to lie with his mother, or his daughter, or a woman to lie with her father or her son? Yet it is asserted that such laws would be no more reprehensible than a law which says that a man can lawfully lie with another man or a woman with another woman or with any beast. For we may rationalize immorality all we want. It is impossible to separate any one of these God’s prohibitions one from the other, and declare that any one may be lawfully committed without offense to his Creator or to his fellow man.
Conclusion. Verses 22 and 23 are no less offenses as are any of the prohibitions preceding them. And in keeping with the pronouncement in Romans 1: 32, all who do, or encourage, or legalize the doing of all such, are worthy of death as Heretics.
