Well I’ll be damned! No…let me take that back. But I must say that, until I saw this preview, I had no idea that Christians were the equal of Klansmen, Nazis and crude rabble rousing haters. I know better now.
So I guess that an appreciation and acceptance of homosexuality is really and truly the Christian thing to do. After all, look at all those “holy” men and tolerant sorts in the video who say so. And look at all those awards from all the right people.
But then, that old rabble rousing hater and proto-Nazi Paul had—how does one say it?—a rather different view of the matter.
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.—1 Corinthians 6:9-10
So there you have it. Either Paul and his Master are liars or they are not. If they are, then do not follow them or that hatre-filled intolerant religion they founded. Really, there is no way around this. What the Bible says about homosexuality is perfectly and absolutely clear. To summarize: Practitioners of homosexuality cannot get into Heaven. They will therefore go to Hell.
You may as your heart desires scream, jump up and down, throw insults, make threats, wail and gnash your teeth—and all of that would amount to exactly nothing for it changes exactly nothing. The original difficulty remains.
So the homosexual has several choices:
1) He can continue in his practice of homosexuality and pretend all is well. This is difficult even for short periods to accomplish. Natural Law is a rather demanding thing, and that odd feeling in the mind and heart when you engage in sin cannot easily be made still without great and continuous effort.
2) He can claim that the Bible really does not say what it says. This is the direction taken by those who made that video. Naturally, it has many followers. The reason is easy to find. Men take solace in the Word of God. But there is that unreasonable focus on sin that keeps popping up. What to do? Why, simply pretend that those ancients who wrote the Bible really could not possibly understand our modern condition. Thus, much of Scripture is outdated. It should be allowed to morph and change with the times.
You will by now have noticed that much of the rattle and hum about homosexuality in our degraded culture is the attempt to “normalize” homosexuality, especially the practice of sodomy. The world system of politics and entertainment and media portray the homosexual as needing special protection from the hatred of Christians and their old fashioned God. It has gone all out to place in the minds of ordinary folks that homosexuals are “just like you and me.” Here is how they are portrayed by the US government’s Center for Disease Control.
All happy and smiling and normal. Why, they have even received a new Orwellian term just for them. No longer called homosexuals, sodomites are now called MSM, “men who have sex with men.”
The term men who have sex with men (MSM) refers to all men who have sex with other men, regardless of how they identify themselves (gay, bisexual, or heterosexual).
Only in government would one find the news that MSM can include heterosexuals as well. Gosh, we must all be homosexual therefore. I never knew that!
Ah, but there is that pesky Natural Law thing again. One would think that if male homosexuals were really and truly “just like you and me,” then their lives would be in all circumstances “just like yours and mine.” Alas, such is not the case. For we see that they live lives shorter by 20 years than male heterosexuals. And that is just one thing about their wildly abridged lives that makes one think that such an existence is not the sort lived out by most men. Indeed, one cannot read about the behavior of homosexuals without the word “depravity” knocking you on the head.
Another unpleasant piece of Scripture keeps intruding.
The wages of sin is death.
There then is the reason why male homosexuals live such abbreviated, frantic lives—and lesbians are not much better off. They are literally in a dance with death.
We may call such a dance part of the Culture of Death that has overtaken our nation. Our lovely government is a card carrying member of this death spiral. It murders children in their mothers’ wombs, subsidizes the practice and acceptance of sodomy and allows any survivors the choice of “assisted suicide.” If this government is not a sworn enemy of God then there is no God and we need not be concerned.
The truth of the matter is that death is encouraged all around. It is as if demons have seized control of the nation. But that cannot be true, can it? The belief in demons is as outmoded and as useless as the belief that homosexuality is a sin, isn’t it?
No. For the Bible tells me so.
