“You shall not have intimate relations with any animal to be defiled with it; nor shall a woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion” (Leviticus 18:23 AMP).
Before I sleep every night, I routinely check my Facebook pages, BlackBerry Messenger and WhatsApp Messenger groups to see if there is any important urgent message to attend to. Recently as I checked one of my WhatsApp groups, I saw a video clip posted by a married lady. I was, and still am, stunned to see the content of the clip: a man having sex with a DOG! I have never seen such a bizarre scene before. I removed the sender from the group immediately and apologized to other group members. However, many questions came to my mind. How did the lady get the video clip? Why would she send it to any group not to talk of a Christian group that is meant for inspiring messages? As a “single” mother (her husband lives in another city), does she not practice similar things? How would a right-thinking man be having sex with an animal? Is this part of the free world? Will people of deprived mind not legalize this act one day as it becomes more popular and acceptable in the society? Was this not how sodomy in all its forms gradually became popular and legalized in many countries of the world? What is this world turning to? (The lady later called me to apologize claiming that she did not intend to send the video clip to the group, but rather wanted to send it back to the person that initially sent it to her in order to warn the person. Nevertheless, the havoc has been done: over 200 people in the group have seen the evil video clip.)
I will cry out before this bestial act is also legalized, and I want people that are thinking rightly irrespective of their religions, colour or race to join me in the cry against this pervasion and abuse of animals. If some human beings have become insane in their thinking, why are they abusing animals in the name of free will? Even, confirmed mad people will not do such a thing! I know that if these abused animals could express their minds, they also would cry out against this inhuman and bestial act.
Apart from the biblical verse quoted above, let me refer to some other biblical injunctions against this act:
“Whoever lies with an animal must be put to death” (Exodus 22:19 AMP).
“‘Cursed is he who is intimate with any animal.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen’” (Deuteronomy 27:21 AMP).
“If a man has intimate relations with an animal, he shall most certainly be put to death; you shall kill the animal also. If a woman approaches any animal to mate with it, you shall kill the woman and the animal; they shall most certainly be put to death; their blood is on them” (Leviticus 20:15-16 AMP).
“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [by perversion], nor those who participate in homosexuality” (1 Corinthians 6:9 AMP).
“Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their own hearts to [sexual] impurity, so that their bodies would be dishonored among them [abandoning them to the degrading power of sin], because [by choice] they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen” (Romans 1:24-25 AMP).
What is not good is NOT good. A word is enough for the wise!
