No matter how many passages from the Bible we cite to convince Pacquiao that the God of the LGBTQ is a God of love it would be futile. I just pray his God is not a God of hate.- Gianne Rensen Antonto, Philippine Daily Inquirer, March 11,2016

Identifying the Biblical God

The term God is used in a variety of ways and when people use the term, they may not be referring to the biblical God, author of the Bible. The human reference to God can be a bit confusing as it is vulnerable to subjective opinion.

Cults have their definition of God, as do the Muslims and other false religions. The problem is the god they refer to does not exist and is a mere flawed copycat. The biblical God is quite clear in his identification.

He is known by a variety of names, like Jehovah, Elohim, and so on and he is referred to always as a male who has a son. When talking to Moses, God told Moses to tell the Pharaoh that ‘I Am’ is the one who sent you.

That makes a very clear identification of who God is. He is the only God that exists and he is always in the present.

Defining a God of Hate

According to the quote above, the evangelical believing boxer M. Pacquiao may believe in a god of hate. That is according to the LGBTQ representative interviewed for that article.

But what is a god of hate? Is it a god that does evil all day long/ Is it a god that deprives people access to salvation? What exactly is a god of hate? In the Christian world hatred comes from a fallen angel who is no where close to being a god.

Or is Ms. Antanto’s definition of the term god of hate one that lays down clear rules that she and her LGBTQ friends refuse to follow? According to her, it seems that the god of hate is one that excludes LGBTQ preferences from paradise.

In other words, a god of hate excludes her preferences and does not allow her to live her life as she pleases.

The LGBTQ god

The quote above declares that the god the LGBTQ community follows and serves is a god of love. How can that be? Most assuredly, it got that label because it does not do what the biblical God does and excludes the LGBTQ community from paradise.

Yet she did not explain all the criteria that led her to declare the LGBTQ god as a god of love. We do not see that love in how LGBTQ people treat those that oppose their decision to adopt and practice alternative preferences.

Often the LGBTQ community reacts to opposition with far less tolerance than than they demand their opponents to exercise. It is hard to see the LGBTQ god as a god of love when it lets its followers do as they please and do es not hold them accountable for their actions.

What is a God of Love

The term love has as many subjective definitions as does the term God has. Love means something different to great variety of people and many times only one or two people hold the same definition.

Probably the best definition of the term comes from 1 Corinthians 13 and we will use the Bible here as Ms. Antonto strictly refers to the Bible. That chapter defines love as follows:

4 Love is patient, love is kind and is not jealous; love does not brag and is not arrogant, 5 does not act unbecomingly; it does not seek its own, is not provoked, does not take into account a wrong suffered, 6 does not rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth; 7 [b]bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (NASB)

As you can see, love does not like evil, sin, and looks for the truth. That means that people cannot arbitrarily change the standards of good and evil, right and wrong, morality and immorality to fit their alternative preferences.

Those standards remain unchanging and no one is arrogant enough to think that they know better than God when he set those standards. Love also does not leave people in their sins.

John 3:16 tells us that God loves the world so much, that he sent his son to save it. A God of love takes the right action to free people from the evil that deceives and misleads those who do not accept the truth.

We do not see this in the LGBTQ god

Those love attributes are not present in the LGBTQ god. It really is not a god of love or who loves as it does nothing to rescue the LGBTQ community members from the evil that holds the captive.

The LGBTQ god seems to relish in the idea that it followers continue to sin and disobey every other instruction found in the Bible. No steps are taken by that God to correct the behavior or preference choices of the LGBTQ community.

That is not love but hate. That attitude shows that the god of the LGBTQ community has no caring abut the lives and salvation status of its followers.

The message of their god

What both the LGBTQ community and their god send to the other people in the world is that it doesn’t matter how you live. You can live as you please and still get into paradise.

Rules do not matter not does living a good life mean anything. You can sin all you want and hurt others because the LGBTQ god is an inclusive being. They and their god devalue paradise keeping it as corrupt and sinful as earth is.

According to the LGBTQ community’s ideas about a god of love, Jesus did not die for all sins. He died only for those sins the LGBTQ community find unacceptable. That is not a very good savior who lets his followers pick and choose the sins they will confess or hold onto.

Some final words

The LGBTQ god is not a real god of love. It can’t be as what we see by its nature and lack of rules to obey, it is a being in desperate need of a Savior. It is not a holy sinless God laying out the correct rules and standards to follow.

The LGBTQ god is a designer god created by the LGBTQ community in hopes of making themselves feel good when they continue to practice their sinful preferences. They need a god who will not reject them over their decisions to continue to follow and practice evil, thus they created their own god that accepts for whom they are and without requiring any changes to their lifestyle.

Finally, the LGBTQ god does not offer love but only hatred and sin. It provides no hope for anyone and no rewards fr those who live the life that is good and pleasing to the God of the Bible.
