    Those God foreknew are called to salvation and predestinated to be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ (Romans 8:29-30) to become “sons” of God and heirs of the Kingdom of God (Revelation 21:7). Because Jesus Christ lived under the authority of the Mosaic Law, He had to be without sin as defined by the Mosaic Law in order to be a final sacrifice for sin to redeem us from the curse of the Mosaic Law; which says, it is an abomination for a man to lie with a man, as with a woman (Leviticus 20:13). Because Jesus Christ is without sin, and because He is the same yesterday, today, and forever (Hebrews 13:8), then how can a man (or woman) who practices or condones the abomination of sexual intimacy between a man with a man or between a woman with a woman, be conformed to the image of Jesus Christ to become an heir of the Kingdom of God (Revelation 21:7), unless they repent?

    Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). In this the children of God and the children of the devil are manifest: Whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is he who does not love his brother (1 John 3:10). Those who are Christ's have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires (Galatians 5:24).
