Dr. Ben Carson made a statement that everyone knows is true that the prison system turns straight people into homosexuals. And that homosexuality is a choice. All sin is a choice.
Now the system of correction is not directly at fault but the system within the system is at fault. What is that system within a system? It’s when inmates make up the rules and the corrections department either allows it or they haven’t discovered a way to discourage the sin of homosexuality.
There is no question that the prison system does have rules prohibiting homosexuality or contact with opposite sex guards, but we all know that they are circumvented. Therefore, we should not be surprised at Dr. Carson’s statement. It seems that the media is attempting to demonize Dr. Carson because he is considering a run for the presidency of the United States. However, we see that, unflinchingly, Dr. Carson is making a statement that America must face.
We also see that when there is a massive problem, we run from the solution. That is, until it directly involves us.
Case in point, when professed Christian parents have children that turn towards the sin of homosexuality. Instead of remaining true to the Lord, the parents run from the Scriptures to embrace their children. The point is not to destroy the child, but to tell the child that they must turn from sin and return to the Lord or be destroyed.
“The wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Well, when you love the Lord more than your children, the Bible is clear about it.
Matthew 22:37-40 says, “Jesus said to him, “ ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like it: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself. ’On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.”
When it comes to loving the Lord, He demands absolute loyalty and love above every thing and everybody, including your children. When you love your children above the Lord, we must remember that we are created, God is the Creator.
Almost every parent is surprised when they hear that their child became a homosexual. The normal reaction of a parent is to support their child’s homosexuality. However, if you remember correctly in the Scriptures, the sons of Aaron burned strange fire on the altar of incense and both sons were killed immediately. The Lord told Aaron not to mourn for them. Don’t shed one tear. Why? It’s called being true to the Lord even when your children turns from the Lord.
In another place in Scripture, the sons of Eli committed sexual immorality and they were killed in battle. Eli died when he heard that the ark of the covenant was taken and that his sons were killed. The Lord told Eli that he honored his sons above the Lord. There is a steep price to be paid when you honor your sons above honoring the Lord.
Many will say that this is cold. However, we must remember that the Lord, He is God. He has standards that are above the ways of man. To disrespect the Lord in honoring our children’s practice of that which He declared an abomination is an insult to the Creator.
The statement and the person (Dr. Carson, or any person) should not be demonized because of the truth.
The article from CBS is a veiled attempt to discredit him from the presidency.
The homosexual controlled media will use everything in their power to discredit anyone that reveals the truth about the sin of homosexuality. From name calling (bigotry, discrimination, homophobia, etc.) to writing laws to force the will of homosexuality on genuine, authentic, God fearing, Bible believing and practicing people.
We that believe in the Lord Jesus cannot make or force people into becoming followers of Christ. We give you the command to repent and believe the gospel. It is entirely up to you to accept this generous offer or reject it. However, there is a penalty for rejecting a gracious offer. Romans 6:23.
We all know that homosexuality takes place in prison. It’s well documented.
Many will say that this demonizes homosexuality and homosexuals that are not incarcerated.
Homosexuality, whether practiced in the system or out is already demonized, for all sins come from the evil one. Men and women just act out their nature that comes from the devil (see John 8:44 and 1 John 3:4-10).
What is taking place is that the culture in the United States fosters the sin of homosexuality and the “culture” will do everything to make the sin of homosexuality seem normal, thus acceptable. At the same time, anyone that rejects their normalcy of the sin of homosexuality will be severely blacklisted.
There is nothing normal about sin.
In 1991, while preaching in Rikers Island (C76), I observed a group of transvestites walking the corridor to eat lunch. Apparently, they were separated from the general prison population. And for good reason. While we would be preaching the Word of God, we would also notice the homosexual spirit on the men in the service.
It’s almost no different in our churches today. We allow practicing homosexuals to play organ, piano, or sing praise and worship. We allow them to preach and pastor churches.
Homosexuality has been a part of the so called Christian worship service. But a cleansing is taking place and for some, they will be set free. For others, there will be an exposure that will bring them front and center to be offered a chance to be delivered.
Homosexuality is a known activity because men are incarcerated for a time. In some prison systems, contact with people is extremely limited. In one case, the only way prisoners could talk to relatives or friends is but way of video phone. This reduces contraband from entering the prison population but it also reduces any affection to be experienced by the prisoner.
In another place, women are “hooking up” with other women in lesbian relationships on prison grounds. There is no question that the system is fostering the sin of homosexuality. Sex is a very powerful drug. Humans were created by the Lord to marry, copulate and bond. When a person commits a crime, they are cut off from any affection. Prisoners are left to find ways to feel wanted, appreciated, experience affection, and sex behind bars is sought for to replace that void.
We all know that when a man is incarcerated, sex is obviously withheld.
When men cannot have sex with the opposite sex in adultery or fornication, or their wives, we all know that the next “best” thing is homosexuality. In watching NatGeo of certain Prison shows, many men that look straight will tell you straight up that they have sex with men. They walk up to the one they want. They give them the ultimatum. Homosexual sex willingly or by force.
Yes, men on men rape is a regular thing.
Same sex rape is a serious problem in the military.
Since DADT was repealed, same sex rape increased in the military.
We should not be surprised at Dr. Carson’s answer because of the reality of what is actually going on in the system behind the system. So when some of the prisoners return to life outside, the lifestyle comes with them. For many young traumatized males, this is all they know. The stigmatization puts incredible strain on them and since they do not know how to handle it, the spirits of sexual immorality drive them to places where what they’ve experienced is furthered.
Bound by their desire for MSM and bound by their desire for WSW, they pursue sin.
So instead of labeling Dr. Carson as a demon, we need to take a good look at what is already going on in the prison system.
That it is true, and leave it at that.
