Anti-Gay Bias Should Anger Christians
Denunciation of gays has become a Christian Right core value, but Baptist minister Howard Bess says the bigotry must end.
Yes. Anie Gay Bias should anger Christians but not for the reason Howard Bess says.
True Christians who actually KNOW their Bible and their Jesus, should be very angry and grieved when they see these kinds of liars published and accepted.
One more time….. Telling the truth about homosexuality is not bigotry. Homosexuality is a sin one chooses to commit. It is one of the few sins God calls an abomination. It is also one of the sins that the Bible teaches is a judgment of God upon a person and a nation that rejects God. It is the bottom of the barrel for a person and a nation.
Those who hate people, those who hate homosexuals, those who hate God pretend that telling the truth about homosexuality is bigotry. False preachers pretend that homosexuality is not a sin. False preachers and liars pretend that it is wrong to say that homosexuality is a sin one chooses to commit.
False Christians will get angry over the false idea of anti homosexual bias. True Christians will get angry that anyone could be so stinking wicked as to think that way as they name the name of Christ.
Jude talks about such ministers.
4For certain men whose condemnation was written about[b] long ago have secretly slipped in among you. They are godless men, who change the grace of our God into a license for immorality and deny Jesus Christ our only Sovereign and Lord.
7In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.
They are clouds without rain, blown along by the wind; autumn trees, without fruit and uprooted—twice dead. 13They are wild waves of the sea, foaming up their shame; wandering stars, for whom blackest darkness has been reserved forever.
There is a reason such harsh judgments for false preachers. People go to hell because of them. People will go to hell because of this man and false preachers like him. People will go to hell because someone has lied to them and told them that the sin of homosexuality doesn’t matter. It is the worse kind of murder. This is the murder of the soul.
False Christians agree with these false preachers. Romans 1 talks about them.
18The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. (wicca people)
26Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. 27In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
28Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done. 29They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
32Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Who are those who approve of those who practice sin? Those who say that homosexuality is not a sin. Those who say that homosexuality is something a person is born with. Those who say that does not require the homosexual to repent of his or sin. Those who say that person can be a Christian and still be a homosexual. These are all lies. If you are one of the people who approves of the sin of homosexuality, then you are under the judgment of God. Repent.
In the answering questions before they are asked section:
1. Why are you talking about the sin of homosexuality? Why not address the other sins listed in Romans 1?
Answer: The article by the pastor quoted is about homosexuality. If it were about the other sins in Romans 1, I would have addressed those too.
2. You are just a homophobe.
Answer” Yeah, yeah …. Typical response of the brainless. Save the silly little lie for someone who is stupid enough to buy into that.
3. How should you treat homosexuals?Answer: Like everyone else which would require one telling them the truth.
