Certainly there is intimacy in sharing our naked bodies, but that is only part of this relational gift.
The Naked Hermit - Nick Mayhew-Smith - SPCK Publishing
This privilege can be easily taken for granted after a time too, and like many treasures we must anchor ourselves to remember it is a gift. This intimacy is where we feel safe enough to be imperfect, to let loose, to be ourselves. Sometimes that means the ones we hold closest also see our roughest attributes - our impatience, our temper, our criticism, and all our vices. If intimacy has been nurtured, our partner can allow us to be human, but also hold us to and call us back to the best parts of ourselves.
All these things require and establish trust as we open up parts of ourselves we might otherwise keep only for ourselves. We bare our heart and our truth before another, and hope it will be received with love. This holy intimacy is reflected in noticing and appreciating the little things that make us what we are, that make our lives what they are. It made me think of what we see in the bible between David and Jonathan.
Jonathan is a prince turned prophet who God will call to walk alongside David. The intimacy shared between these two men shows us holy and soulful connection, covenant commitment, sacrifice, compassion, and concern. Their relationship will be strong enough that Jonathan will one day be able to hold David accountable to the harm he causes to Uriah and Bathsheba.
Naked and Unashamed: Intimacy
Their intimacy will be the foundation that enables David to see his truth reflected back to him and be moved and changed again toward healing and life. This harm can be emotional as well as physical. Therefore, the manipulative abuse of intimacy is not of God. It reframes the choice entirely outside of our own self-interest in a way that consent and mutuality alone do not. Concern means taking notice of how our sexual behavior affects ourselves and each other.
This is how God loves us. God sees me fully and still loves me and is deeply concerned about my wholeness. If you are involved in a gay relationship, or have a loved one that is, do not get upset with me. I am not against you.
The devil hates it when someone brings the truth out in the open. He likes to keep all light and truth hidden in the darkness. But he loves to expose all that is unnatural and abominable and evil. The Bible says that homosexuality is unnatural. Men in gay relationships have given up the natural use of the woman and the woman changed the natural use of the man. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. Rom The Bible does not say that God changed what was natural.

Neither does it say that nature or the environment, or the culture or his parents, or his birth genes changed what was natural. The Bible says it is people who change their natural sexual desires in exchange for unnatural ones. The Bible sweeps away every argument, excuse, and destructive reasoning for unnatural sexual activity.

Some things are against nature, and therefore against God, because God created nature. Homosexuality is not ordained by God nor is it even biologically right or natural. Being gay is a choice just like a heterosexual couple chooses to have children, or a man decides to remain celibate and enter the monastary, or a woman chooses to be a nun. They beat around the bush and are all concerned with political correctness and being tolerant. The plain truth is that everyone makes choices every single day. You can choose to believe in God or not.
See a Problem?
You can choose to believe the Bible or not. You can choose to surrender your life to Jesus Christ or not. You can choose to be a liar, a thief, a whore-monger, a murderer, an alcoholic or a drug addict. Quit blaming it on your genes, or your addictive personality, unfortunate circumstances, or your background and upbringing. The fact is some people just want to do what comes natural or what feels good, and the devil eats them up. He will feed you all the lies and perversion you are willing to receive. Homosexuality is actually a demon spirit.
A genuine prophet of God told me that he smelled it in the Spirit and got sick to his stomach.

And yet as humans, many embrace this demon. Yes, you heard me right. Being gay is demonic. There is an account in the Bible where Jesus casts out 2, demons out of a man.
The demons came out screaming and begged Jesus to send them into the pigs. Pigs have more sense than some humans. People embrace homosexual demons, but the pigs would rather die than be possessed with them. Now a large herd of swine was feeding there near the mountains. Then the unclean spirits went out and entered the swine there were about two thousand ; and the herd ran violently down the steep place into the sea, and drowned in the sea.
Mk From a Biblical perspective the rise of homosexuality is a sign that a society is in the last stages of decay. And here is another terrible truth: As people continue to reject God, He gives them over to increasingly immoral and self-destructive activities.korkutas.com/wp-includes/android-casus-apk-indir.php

There are destructive physical, emotional, and spiritual consequences resulting from homosexual behavior. All human beings know deep in their hearts that God exists, and they all know something of His moral standards. Their sexual reproductive organs do not complement each other therefore making it impossible for them to procreate. It can never be natural for 2 men or two women to get married and live together. Just because it has become acceptable to our culture will never make it right. Homosexuality is not new. If natural feelings for the opposite sex do not return, then wait and choose to remain celibate.
In the same way I would give account to God for living in adultery so the Bible says one day homosexuals will pay the penalty for the error of their ways. Just because something is pleasurable and it feels good will never make it right if it is outside of the boundaries God has set. But preachers have a responsibility to preach sound doctrines and truths that will warn people of the consequences of sin. I charge every preacher of righteousness today to preach these truths and warn your people of the wrath to come on those who delight in unrighteousness and wickedness.
Love always warns. And so I warn you today to choose righteousness. Choose the Bible. Choose God.
