Gay is No Longer Happy

I am sick to the point that I almost can't "stands no more" on this issue of the acceptance of homosexuality being force fed to the church. All the while the church remains silent for fear of retaliation from the GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender) community. Also many in the church are opposed to the church speaking out about homosexuality because they have friends or family that are involved in this "alternative lifestyle."

To add fuel to this out of control fire we have this article of a large metro Atlanta Word-Faith church that is "considering their options in reference to having a gay group (SoulForce) to come in and lead workshops on human sexuality. What in the world is that church thinking?

The church cannot remain silent on this sin or any other sin for that matter. Who cares if people get upset or protest? Our concern should be what God thinks about it. I am equally concerned about the churches that choose to remain silent. Their silence puts them in the same league with those churches embracing it.

Wow...did you hit the nail on the head, Dead boy. While the "church" sleeps, the wolves are circling. I'm convinced that only those who stay awake and alert can recognize what's going on. That's what His sheep are supposed to do.

I also believe that a lot of the "tolerance" in the church today is due to the fact that there are people who "call" themselves Christians who will NOT face their own sin and depravity and therefore haven't a clue about repentance. And because of this it's very easy to tolerate sin in others.

So it shouldn't surprise us to see what's happening in this "age of enlightenment", where the whole world has gone "global" over every "cause" imaginable...including the church. But you have to admit that it's also very exhilarating to watch as the days wind down to the Lord's Coming.

We always knew His plan, we just didn't know how it was going to play out. And now, at last, it all makes perfect sense!

The holiness code was written in a time when procreation was necessary to build the population up. God has no problem with homosexuality. Are you also for stoning non virgin brides, think the death penalty should be administered or masturbation? Perhaps you see eat shellfish as an abomination, and therefore keep kosher?

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 2Tim 4:3,4

Queers United has hit the nail on the head.

Because there is such a disdain among most evangelicals concerning God's Law, sin is being accepted (and welcomed) in to the church. God demands holiness. How do we know what holy is without a standard?

God never changes, and neither does His standard for holiness. As a matter of fact, were God to change, He would cease being God. Because He is (and always has been perfect), He and His statues, which reflect his perfection, are eternal.

While the Ceremonial Laws are no longer binding, the Moral Law remains.

Sadly for "QU," his misunderstanding of the Law will be detrimental to his soul.

"QU," is it now o.k. to worship idols or take the Lord's name in vain? How about murder or adultery....are they now acceptable?

"God has no problem with homosexuality."

Really?
The "holiness code" still stands today. Jesus came to fulfill, not abolish. Matt 5:17-20 is a most compelling passage.
He presently and actively stands for us ,keeping the law on our behalf, right now.
When He, the lamb without sin or stain, went to the cross, He took all mankind with Him.
Paul says,
"one died therefore all died."
"I am crucified with Christ.I no longer live"
etc etc the scriptures are clear on this.
The emergents/liberals love to listen to Derek Webb, formerly of Caedmons Call. Even he says in his great song, Thankful,
"we're all stillborn and dead in our transgressions"
Oh my......

The New Testament says:

1 Cor 6:
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,"

1 Timothy 1:
"9 understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, 10the sexually immoral, men who practice homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, 11in accordance with the gospel of the glory of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted."

Romans 1:
"24Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, 25because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.
26For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error."
Romans 1 alone is an incredible study for what it actually says.
It is also one of the most misconstrued passages in Scripture.

When I hear the gay community arguing "we were born this way" I answer,"I was born a sinner also."
What an argument FOR double predestination.

As for the stupid arguments about stoning, and kosher food,
Mark 7:14-23;Acts 10:9-16,and Acts 15:6-21 make it plain that we are no longer under dietary law and other such practices. Jesus declared all foods to be CLEAN.
Where did He declare homosexuality, or adultery, or lying, or stealing,or any other SIN to be clean?
We no longer have to be stoned for our transgressions, because we are already DEAD.

The problem with the pro-gay argument as with all flawed post-modern "theology" is they know neither the scripture, nor the power of God.

So the church must stop "stoning", and the proponents of the gay agenda must stop sinning, if they are indeed regenerate.

This is opening the door to all kinds of depravity begging the church to tolerate and accept. Adulterers will excuse their sin by saying 'Oh, I was just born that way.' Child molesters will defend themselves by saying Jesus never spoke on the issue. The only thing we WON'T see is bestiality...because the animal rights folks won't tolerate animals being abused in that manner.

Lord Jesus, come quickly!

QU:

Let's put the gay issue aside for a second.

Have you ever told a lie? I don't care how small it is or was.

margie gary,

Thanks for your comment. It seems that we are of one mind when it comes to this.

Thanks,
DT

queers united,
>>The holiness code was written in a time when procreation was necessary to build the population up.

So children are not blessings now? You state this because you as a homosexual cannot procreate with your male friends.

>>God has no problem with homosexuality.

Where is that verse in the Bible?

DT


Jeff,

Nothing states it quite like scripture does it?
Thanks for keeping that as our focus.

DT



dss,

As always, thanks for your great comment. Very aptly put.

DT



approvedworkman,

You always use so much scripture. You must be one-sided :)

DT



Linda,

You said it right.

What was wrong is now right and what is right is now wrong.

DT



Tim,

I smell a little deduction.

Thanks for stopping by.
DT
