There are several different “Movements” happening in the Christian Church today. And one of those Movements (next to the Ecumenical and Emergent Movements, which I’ve talked about in previous posts) is what I’ve now dubbed the “Revamping the Bible To Suit One’s Sin(s)” Movement. And it is a sad, sad day in America, indeed!
We are now living in the times when what the bible considers “evil” is considered GOOD in most peoples’ eyes and what the bible considers “good” and “moral” is now considered by many to be EVIL in today’s world. Isaiah 5:20 states: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
Today, LGBT Activists and the Homosexual Community have pretty much taken over and “hijacked” the Christian Church, the re-defining of Marriage & Family, the K-12 classroom sex ed curriculum, and pretty much every faucet of American society. And while I don’t have anything against gay people personally on a human level, I DO have a problem with them on a SPIRITUAL level when they (the LGBT Activists), go so far as to REDEFINE the bible and what it says in order to suit THEIR sin of homosexual lust & behavior.
That would truly be no different than a “Christian” serial killer saying “I’m a serial killer AND I’m Christian, so I should be allowed to kill people and still come to church every week, get married in the church and even become a church clergy member and have bibles rewritten to say that being a Christian serial killer is OK!”. It just wouldn’t happen in that case and so it shouldn’t happen with any other “willful habitual sin”, either!
And sure, in that scenario, a “Christian” serial killer could even try to argue “but I can’t help the fact I’m a serial killer, I was born this way” and it still wouldn’t change the fact that being a serial killer (in society’s eyes AND in God’s eyes) is a GRAVE sin!
Yes, I will come right out and say it: homosexual physical activity is a SIN and PERVERSION and an ABOMINATION, according to the bible! And all those poor, lost souls out there who PARTAKE of homosexual activity (and/or blindly support it) are, sadly and unfortunately, under SEVERE demonic oppression (rather they realize it or not) and are headed on a path to eternal condemnation if they don’t repent of their sin of homosexual behavior (and/or of approving of homosexual behavior) before it’s too late & their souls are judged and thrown in the fire for all eternity!
We know from the bible that Satan and his demons are MASTER DECEIVERS. They can take what’s WRONG (sin/lust), make it seem as though it were GOOD (healthy/normal) and then DECEIVE a homosexual person to think that that’s OKAY and/or that God APPROVES of such behaviors WHEN THAT PERSONALLY COULDN’T BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH! Because the truth is, God HATES sinful behaviors……ALL of them! “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death” Proverbs 16:25
Then again: homosexual lust/behavior is just as MUCH of a sin as lying, stealing, murdering, cheating, taking the Lord’s name in vain, bowing down to graven images, etc. So it’s not like the bible is singling out homosexual behavior as the ONLY sin in the bible. Romans 3:23 states: “For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God“. So in other words, we are ALL sinners on this planet Earth. If even just ONE person on this Earth right now tried to say they were without sin, they’d be a liar!
When Jesus Christ died on the cross, he died for forgiveness of ALL of mankind’s sins, not just SOME of them. John 3:16-17 says: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved“.
However, in order to receive forgiveness for sins, one must first acknowledge their sins to Jesus Christ in prayer. Then they pray for forgiveness of their sins and REPENT of (that means, to give up and stop doing) their sins. And then they need to become baptized in the name of Jesus Christ in order to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (the Spirit of Truth/Spiritual Discernment that will tell a person “this is of God” or “this is NOT of God”, etc.)
And most importantly, Jesus Christ LOVES YOU! He’s not willing that ANY should perish! However, Jesus Christ can’t save you and give you the gift of Salvation if you don’t let him!
Most recently, a guy has written a book in which he dances around all the passages in the bible in the Old AND New Testaments that specifically condemn homosexuality/homosexual behavior, even admits himself that Paul seems to hold a very “negative/condemning” view of homosexuality in the New Testament, and then comes back around to twist the bible and all its passages specifically condemning homosexuality to suit HIS sinful, homosexual lifestyle.
And this is VERY, very sad and unfortunate! Because using that same line of reasoning that he uses in his book to try to justify homosexuality, if it’s okay for a person to be Christian and openly homosexual, then it must also be okay to murder, steal, envy, continually take the Lord’s name in vain with no shame, worship idols and graven images, lie every chance one gets, not keep the sabbath holy, disrespect one’s father and mother, continually worship other gods, launder money, etc.
But most people would ofcourse, get up in arms and say “ofcourse those things wouldn’t be okay in God’s eyes!” Okay, fair enough. But if those things aren’t okay, then why is it okay for those who claim they are Christian to give in to homosexual lusts and desires? Hedonism is hedonism, right? And sin is sin? The bible is not like chopping up an apple or pear, where you can just chop up the pieces you want and then leave out the parts you don’t want. But anyways, in his new book, he attempts to say that the Old Testament laws condemning homosexuality no longer applies.
Well, unfortunately, that flies directly in the face of Matthew 5: 17-18 which states: “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled”. And we know from reading the bible that ALL will not be COMPLETELY FULFILLED until the very end of Revelation chapter 22!
And not only that, but homosexuality is STILL condemned, even in the New Testament! It’s just that he somehow found a way to dance around them and blind his eyes to the truth and wants to encourage others to blind THEIR eyes to the truth, as well! It’s a sad, sad day in America, indeed!
When Jesus Christ came to Earth the first time, he came and offered himself as a sacrifice on the cross for forgiveness of mankind’s sins. But the book of Revelation in the New Testament talks about God’s Wrath that will be unleashed on the entire Earth, against those souls who rejected him and his holy, divine truth in the bible! Revelation 20:15 states “And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”. Those are some pretty harsh words, there!
Sure, Jesus Christ is a God of love & forgiveness. But just like every human being on this Earth has the potential for a loving, forgiving side, they also have the potential of an angry, wrathful, revengeful side. So it is with God/Jesus Christ. There are times in the New Testament when Jesus spoke with GREAT WRATH! But you won’t see alot of preachers today talk about that certain aspect of Jesus Christ.
Today in America, you will only mostly see preachers talk about Jesus Christ’s “loving side” and in so doing, they do all the lost souls around them a SERIOUS disservice when all those poor, lost, unfortunate souls are not forewarned about the coming WRATH OF GOD that will someday be leashed out on the entire Earth! The only ones who’ll be spared from God’s wrath will be his chosen ones, those that believe in him AND adhere to his teachings and commandments in the bible, ALL of them, not just SOME of them!
But essentially what the gay author is trying to do in his book is to REDEFINE Christianity, altogether! And in a small way, I can sort’ve understand where this guy is coming from. He wants to feel loved and accepted by God. I get that. I really do. But if only he TRULY KNEW how much Jesus Christ truly loved him. Jesus Christ wants to SAVE him from a life of depravity and LUSTFUL sin but he can’t do that if the guy keeps *willfully* blinding his eyes to Jesus’s TRUE spiritual truth in the bible!
I know at times that the Lord Jesus Christ can “seem” like a God of many rules, but the REASON Jesus Christ outlawed sinful things as “sin” (in and of itself) is NOT ONLY because of what those sins do to us mentally and spiritually but also what they do to us PHYSICALLY. There is a REASON God outlawed sex and lustful relations between the same gender. Look at the high drug rate, suicide rate, all the STD diseases it causes in males (things such as AIDS, anal fistulas, etc.), and females (such as HPV, genital warts, etc.).
Then there’s the fact that they can’t naturally procreate and God made marriage between a man and a woman for that very reason. But when it all comes down to it, homosexual behavior is a thing of LUST. Since two women and two men can’t procreate and have natural sex (where procreation happens), they have to have un-natural sex and that’s explicitly why the bible calls it an “un-natural sex/perversion”.
Medical science is very, very advanced these days and they have YET to find any sort of “gay gene”. However, research has been overwhelmingly showing that 98% of the time, gay/bi men suffered some sort of abuse or trauma in their childhood, their parents got divorced at an early age, their dads weren’t around alot or at all and/or they didn’t have a very good relationship with their father and/or step-father while growing up or they’re just very, very, very insecure and think that no women truly want them.
And for women that are bi/gay, it’s usually the same thing: some sort of childhood sexual abuse trauma that they suffered, or her parents were divorced or not around when she was little or she has SEVERE insecurity with herself over her ability to attract or keep a man. Other additional research has shown that parents themselves didn’t properly display in themselves or encourage the CORRECT gender roles when their children were little, thus reinforcing the “gender confusion” feelings in their children early on.
Prior to 1973, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM) of the American Psychiatric Association listed homosexuality as “abnormal”, more or less. And homosexuals back then wanted it to be known that it was a “choice” on their part. Now the tone has changed and homosexuals want to say they were “born that way”, nevermind that current research points more into homosexuality being more nurture (social environment) instead of nature (biology).
And then, to top it all off, you’ve got pro-homosexual education being taught to pre-pubescent teens and elementary kids in the schools (who’s hormones and social, physical, mental, spiritual development isn’t fully developed yet and whom ultimately get “tricked” into thinking: “if homosexual sex is good and wholesome, according to the public sex educators in the schools and I go out and experiment with a classmate of the same gender and it feels good, it MUST mean I’m bi/gay”, when that isn’t necessarily true!
It just means their hormones responded to stimulation, end of story. But when young people who aren’t fully developed yet experiment with classmates of the same gender and their hormones respond, they IMMEDIATELY confuse physical stimulation with love, and that’s where lifelong problems and gender confusion comes in. Lifelong gender confusion ALSO comes in when kids are raised by gay parents. Research has shown over and over again that for proper social development, a child needs a mother and a father. And to prove my point, there’s a famous Hollywood actress who’s lesbian, who, as you would guess it, was raised in a Lesbian household……hhhmmmm, lets think about that for awhile…….
And what about all the people who are now coming forward and actually ADMITTING that it was once a “choice” on their part, to live in the gay-lifestyle? Many former homosexuals have successfully gotten out of the sinful/lustful gay lifestyle, with the help of the Lord Jesus Christ. (And the LGBT Activists are trying to silence such people because quite frankly, it makes the gay movement look bad). But one thing’s for sure: the voice of the “ex-gay” is seldom heard in the media or on national television……not because they don’t exist…….but because the gay movement is trying to silence them. Here is the “VOICE” of such an individual:
And what about the homosexual individuals that sexually, verbally or physically harass “straight” people? Why does the media (for the most part) hardly EVER pick up on THAT?
We live in a country today where it’s perfectly fine and dandy for a homosexual person to harass a straight person and hey, “no biggie” (according to the Media and everything else). But the MOMENT a straight person harasses a homosexual, it’s like a capital murder offense times three has been committed.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I don’t condone ANY type of harassment on ANY individual in this country. But when victims of sexual harassment done by a homosexual can’t even speak up for themselves in this country and the media won’t even bring attention to it all, hardly, we’re living in some very scary times, indeed!
Most recently, it has come to my attention that a 3rd grader (who’s straight) in New York was most recently forced to perform oral sex on THREE “gay” school children at his school. THREE!
Sadly, that’s just the small tip of the iceberg of some of the things that are happening in today’s country. The open homosexual has become like an endangered animal; highly protected. SO protected, in fact, that crimes such as the above link, go unnoticed and unpunished (by the media, by school administrators and even by parents, themselves!) Ofcourse, harassment happens on BOTH sides (the straight side AND the gay side) and I think it needs to stop!
But going back to the main case in point: the bible is NOT like chopping up fruit where we can decide what parts we want to adhere/follow to and what parts we don’t. Because hey, lets face it, it’s either all true or it isn’t. And I know first hand that what the bible says is true. I know Jesus Christ is real because I’ve SEEN him (during a Near-Death experience). I’ll never have to think or question about Jesus’s existence because I simply KNOW he’s real! Just like I also know the testimony of his words in the bible are real, there’s absolutely NO denying it!
But one thing is true, LGBT Activists seem to have an “agenda”and it’s actually part of a bigger, much broader movement to DESTROY the Christian Church from within, to DESTROY the concept of the Traditional Family and to DESTROY the King James Bible, bit by bit, little by little, verse by verse. Basically, they want to have the whole thing (bible, KJV) gutted.
And once they have all three of those things annihilated, they’ll go on to their next big goal: legalizing gay marriage in every single town and church across this country. And once it’s legalized everywhere, and they gain a majority in the house and senate (still a long ways off but not totally impossible the way the “hedonistic culture” of this American country is heading), the flood gates of sin will burst WIDE OPEN and any mere “thought” on anyone’s part that doesn’t glorify their sinful hedonistic lifestyle will be fully punishable to the maximum extent of the law.
And it will all branch out from there. After gay marriage is fully recognized in this country, there will be demands for commune marriages, bestiality marriages, incest marriages, pedo marriages, until finally, marriage won’t EVEN be a recognized institution anymore, in and of itself.
“Yeah right, that could NEVER happen!”, someone might think. However, there’s already evidence to the contrary.
A few years ago, a “throuple” marriage or an “incest marriage” was UNHEARD of! NOW look what’s happening in today’s country! The first FEMALE ***and*** MALE “throuple marriages” have taken place, not to mention the very first desired “incest marriage”! We live in a very SICK world today, folks! And it’s ONLY gonna get worse, people! Mark My Words!!!!!!
It seems the “flood gates of sin” have already started to burst wide open! [Matthew 7:13 says “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat“.]
Dr. R. Albert Mohler has written a FREE E-book in IMMEDIATE response to Matthew Vine’s “God and the Gay Christian” book.
And in closing, I would just like to say that IF you a practicing homo/bi/transexual, you have been deceived by Satan and his demons into thinking that the gay lifestyle is “okay” when the bible says in both the Old AND New Testament that the gay lifestyle is anything BUT okay!
Jesus Christ LOVES you and he wants to set you FREE from the sins of lust and perversion! But you must call out to him in prayer and mean that prayer with all your heart, soul and might! Many former homosexuals have successfully gotten out of the gay lifestyle with the help of the Lord Jesus Christ! So don’t let the overly active LGBT Activists fool you!
And besides, when someone has to announce to the media and the world what their sexuality is, doesn’t that pretty much show that there’s something wrong, there? Like they’re trying to over-compensate for something? Like, they KNOW deep, deep down that people (AND God) don’t approve of their sinful lifestyle (and there’s a REASONING for this) and so they feel as though they have to somehow use the media to JUSTIFY it?
There’s something seriously wrong, there. Because if a person is TRULY living the way of the bible (the WHOLE bible, not just PART of the bible), they NEVER, EVER, EVER have to use the media or threat of intimidation, manipulation, etc. to justify their actions or get their point across. Reason being? They don’t need to, they already got God’s personal backing.
“Lord Jesus, please help all openly homosexual souls and those struggling with same sex thoughts to get out of the sinful gay lifestyle before it’s too late and their souls are lost for eternity, someday. Give them knowledge and wisdom, peace and healing that ONLY comes from YOU! Become their Lord & Savior and help guide them in the paths of righteousness. Allow them time to grieve (if needed) in the transition from darkness into light. Give them each a mate of the opposite gender who will love them unconditionally. Give them strength to overcome the lies of Satan and his demons. Take the “spiritual blinders” off their eyes and open their eyes to YOUR eternal truths in the bible! Help protect them against those who try to claim that being in a sinful, gay lifestyle is “okay”. Protect them as well from those who claim “committed gay relationships are okay” when your words in the bible say they are anything BUT okay. Please heal them and cleanse them. Bless them and keep them for eternity, all those willing to repent and submit their lives to you. Amen”.
