Christians Must Know Their Bible To Combat The Often Told Lie That Christ Jesus Never Addressed Homosexuality....

Traditional Christians Must Know Their Bible To Combat The Often Told Lie That Christ Jesus Never Addressed Homosexuality....

The lie that Christ Jesus never spoke on homosexuality will constantly be repeated now more than ever because five members of the Supreme Court have made same-sex-marriage the law of the land. Before and after the decision, many Liberal news outlets were preparing the way by giving their perversions of the Biblical scriptures to justify the behavior that the Lord deems an abomination. Homosexuals and their advocates neglect what the Apostle Paul, who Christ Jesus chose to write a huge chunk of the New Testament, had to say, notably in Roman 1:8, about that behavior... but repeat the lie that Jesus never spoke on the subject matter.

Let us start with the Gospel of John1:1 that unequivocally states that before Christ came and was manifested in the flesh... He was in the beginning and that everything seen or unseen was made by Him. In addition, Jesus also told the Jews that before Abraham was... I am (John 8:58)! In Genesis 19, we read that the Lord came down and broke bread with Abraham and because Abraham was His friend, He decided to tell the patriarch about the fiery destruction the Lord was about to rain down on those practicing homosexuality/lesbianism and inhospitality. It is ironic that gays and their advocates are now boasting that their behavior should morally be accepted because of consensus, when it was the Lord who told the pleading Abraham that if He could find just ten righteous (Divine Consensus) - by the way, does not this tell us that all that entail being gay is unrighteous, which accounted for the Lord telling of Abraham that if He could find just ten, including the patriarch's nephew, Lot, - that He would have spared Sodom and Gomorrah?

So terrible was the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah for engaging in the gay lifestyle that it became the measurement of what could happen to man for engaging in immoral behavior, which Christ Jesus mentioned when He walked the earth in the flesh. Cases in point, Christ Jesus, using the destruction He perpetrated on those engaging in homosexuality and Lesbianism, as a measurement for immoral behavior, detailed other Sinful trespasses that are worse than being gay and that will be judged more severely in the judgment to come. These sinful trespasses, which Christ Jesus say are worse than being gay are: hurting children; not receiving and mistreating those who preach His Gospel (Matthew 10:15); and those who saw the great works that Christ Jesus did in places like Chorazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum, yet refused the Salvation of the Gospel (Luke 10:13 and Matthew 11:31).

Have You Ever Noticed That Gay Sex Is The Only Behavior That is Not A Sin According To Homosexuals, Lesbians and Their advocates.

Christ Jesus chastised us that if we were to look upon a married woman with lust, we have already committed the Sin of Adultery - so just by thinking about having normal sex between a man and a woman - granted that said woman is married - is a grave sin in Christ Jesus' eyes... then if this is so, how come this same Christ Jesus would sanction gay sex? It is a constant refrain of gays and their advocates to say, 'do not judge' by quoting Christ Jesus' account of the pending stoning of Mary Magdalene for Adultery (John 8:7). Right you are, but they neglect to say that Christ Jesus told Mary, "To go and sin no more...." What Sin was Christ Jesus telling Mary to do no more - it was sex with married men... once again, if sex between men (those who bedded Mary) and a woman (Mary), was a sin, then how could Christ Jesus be ok morally with sex between the same sexes? Last but not least, Christ Jesus met a Samaritan woman at Jacob's well (John 4:1-26) and the Lord proceeded to tell her to go and get her husband, which she confessed that she did not have a husband. The Lord Christ Jesus told her that she have had sex with six men - all not her husband and to go and sin no more. Once again, if the sex the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well was having with men was immoral, how come gays and their advocates say that Christ Jesus would be morally ok with sex between the same sexes?

The Gospel of Christ Jesus is an offence (1st Peter 2:8) to everyone, including I, who, in the 'Flesh,' would want to bed every woman that I see, but Christ Jesus' forbid, were I do so, it would not make it morally right because the 'Flesh' took/or foresees pleasure in doing so. Think of the sin that easily entangles you (Hebrews 12:1), simply because you enjoy it, does not make it morally ok with Christ Jesus. Homosexuality is a spirit like my wanting to sleep with a women outside the confines of the marital bed and, therefore, I cannot call what God say is immoral, and moreover an abomination, moral. I truly hope that those of us who have inklings to engage in homosexual/lesbian behavior are not cursed in believing a lie in what the Apostle Paul deemed as being given over to a reprobate mind (Romans 1:21-28) because we read that it was because we rejected the Living God and started worshipping that which was created instead of the Creator (God) who made everything that was being worshipped, why we were allowed to be given over to homosexual/lesbian behavior.

I have provided the scriptures in this blog above to show that those of us who are Traditional Christians who believe in the Bible and its tenets did not fashion our beliefs from whole cloth... but by adhering to the plain meaning of what is written in the Holy Bible. No doubt, the Flesh in all of us that wars against the Holy Spirit of the Living God, would like to misinterpret or re-write the Bible to make moral the sins that so easily entangle us; however, I cannot go against God, through His Christ, no matter If I, my children, parents, and siblings engage in a behavior that the Lord deems an abomination... notwithstanding what President Obama, Hollywood, the world at large or five Supreme Court justices think. I take leave with one rhetorical question: did the conduits who were chosen to author the Lord's Gospel on how morally to live our lives... recorded the rules in the Constitution or the Bible.

In your article, you claim that it is a lie that Jesus never addressed homosexuality. Then you speak of times Jesus spoke of some other sin and then infer--assume, even--that if Jesus is against this, how can you say He would condone homosexuality.

In other words: it is a lie to say "it is a lie to say that Jesus does not address homosexuality." You may have an issue here with homosexuality, but it cannot be said to be due to the words of Jesus. It is entirely due to the words of the Old Testament.

In the OT:

* murder is on par with dishonoring and/or disrespecting your mother and father

* divorce is on par with wearing clothing of multiple fabrics

* an injury to the testicles will bar your from the house of the Lord

* etc.

It is time to stop acting as through anyone here, in this world, is in the seat of Judgement. If you think homosexuality is a sin, then do not have sex with someone of your gender. But do not judge those that have been given a head--by God, according to you--that loves that way.

If someone--gay or straight--harms you or anyone else, then you are free to act. But if what they do simply offends your Bronze Age sensibilities... then you need to keep that to yourself.

I understand your motives for writing this hub and your attempt to help Christians understand this issue that is so much in the news right now. I think this article would be enhanced if it included the Godly principle that one sin is not any worse than any other. I'm as guilty of my sins as anyone else is of theirs. Thank a loving God, we are offered grace to cover all our sins.

So only you can speak - typical! I will say what I have to say on this issue and I am willing to die I hope in Christ Jesus' name for doing so. Those who speak out against immoral behavior do so out of the utmost of love for his or her fellow human being because I say to you that I am not better than my brothers and sisters who are gay, but I will not say a behavior is morally ok when the Bible says it is not. The Word of God pertains to everyone and we are told to warn each other; those who say nothing to those of us who engage in certain behaviors are guilty of the utmost of hatred when the consequences could be a literal burning hell. Instead of your addressing the Scriptures that I used, you engaged in Ad Homonym attacks. I sign off from the Bronze Age... knowing that the gay lifestyle was an abomination then and so it is now.

Once again we misquote the Scriptures - there are sins that are judge more than others... the blog shows where the Scriptures are that say so.

I am certainly not the only one who can speak. But the Lord God, according to your scriptures, is the only one who can judge. I am just saying that, if you look at homosexuality, I has to ask you who is the victim?

You can look at NAMBLA, and I will agree with you when you say the child is the victim.

You can look at rape, an I will agree with you when you say that their is a victim and that victim should be protected.

But when you look at two adult women who love one another, or two adult men who love one another -- love, and respect, and protect, and nurture -- I cannot look at that and see a victim.

Where did Jesus judge or condemn? Didn't Jesus say, "You judge by the standards of men, I judge no one." Any Bible verse contrary to the teachings of Jesus is not Christian.

KDLadage, as Christians, we are absolutely told to judge - righteously, not hypocritically ("judge not" is one of the most misquoted parts of the Bible!). We are repeatedly told to exercise judgement wisely.

When it comes to homosexuality, as described in the Bible, it is all about behaviour. The idea of homosexuality as an identity is thoroughly modern.

You then make the mistake of equating homosexuality with love. It has nothing to do with love, but with behaviour. Who does it hurt? The people practicing it, mostly. It is a self-harming behaviour (which is what sin, ultimately, is). Medically, there are increased risks in a long list of ailments, from STIs to certain types of cancer. Also, research has shown that SS relationships are extremely unstable, with a very high rate of domestic abuse. Especially among lesbians, for some reason.

Living in Canada, which legalized SSM 10 years ago, I have seen the extended harm caused, as support of the behaviour becomes increasingly demanded, resulting in persecution, job loss, harassment, and even violence.

The promotion of homosexuality has nothing to do with love, but of hate towards anyone who dares not wholeheartedly support it, or point out the harm it causes. It has become a direct attack on real human rights of free speech and freedom of religion, in support of civil rights and totalitarian government intervention.

Well said - however, I repeat that whatever the Bible says is immoral, is so... no matter If I or others engage in the proscribed behavior.

I cannot express the degree to which I disagree. And so with that, I leave you to your views.

Jesus said, "You judge by human standards, I judge no one." If you condemn you will be condemned the same.
