WHAT IF GOD HAD NOT GIVEN THE LAWS CONCERNING SEXUAL MORALITY?

             The Ten Commandments are great laws that are meant to regulate our relationship with God and our fellow man. The only commandment that regulates human sexuality is the one forbidding adultery. Other sexual sins are defined as such in the Book of the Law.

            What if God had not emphasized that incest, homosexuality and bestiality were also sinful?

             God dedicates all of Leviticus 18 to sexual sins. He prefaces the chapter by emphasizing that Israel was not to emulate the depravities of the heathen: “According to the doings of the land of Egypt, where you dwelt, you shall not do; and according to the doings of the land of Canaan where I am bringing you, you shall not do; nor shall you walk in their ordinances” (Leviticus 18:3).

             God proceeds to forbid incest and lists all the incestual sins that they were to evade. He also made sure that Israel had no doubt as to where He stood in relation to homosexuality: “”It is an abomination”(V. 22). He then forbids bestiality for both men and women (V. 23), and concludes with a warning that doing such things would lead to their being vomited out of the land as the Canaanites were about to experience (28).

             If God had not listed the various sexual sins, Israel, without doubt, would have perpetuated some of the perversions learned in Egypt that some of them may have internalized. Once in Canaan, the disgusting, yet appealing behaviors that characterized the people that inhabited the land would have been emulated by Israel to their own demise.  Israel needed cleansing, and God provided the education needed for the cleansing to take place. Israel also needed to know what is morally right and wrong. Only God has the right to determine right and wrong, not humans, and so He did clearly, thoroughly and explicitly.

            By not giving the instructions in Leviticus 18, God would have left Israel at the same level as the degenerate nations of the time. By instructing them as to what is unacceptable sexual behavior, God took the first step to elevate Israel above all the nations and warned Israel against behavior that would lead to their ultimate destruction.

             Modern nations need to read and heed. Such wonderful knowledge is available to the millions who have to a Bible in their possession. The nations of the Western World, (North America in particular) know full well what are God’s divine expectation in regards to sexuality. They also know that trampling on those laws was in the past a sure way to invite God’s wrath. God does not change. His moral expectations are still very high, and His powerful interventions against sinful societies will be very drastic today as they were in the past, unless humans repent.
