Dr. Cass Answers Bible Twisting Homosexuals

In case you are unaware, homosexuals and homosexual apologists, are big on Biblical revisionism in order to justify their perversion to Christian critics. Dr. Gary L. Cass does an excellent job in exposing the deception of homosexuals that attempt to manipulate the Word of God.
There is one point in Dr. Cass’ essay that is weak that Christian-haters love to jump on. Dr. Cass utilizes the judgment of the Law in the Old Testament on what happens to homosexuals. The Law demands a penalty for sin. In the case of perverted homosexuals the penalty is death in the Old Testament.
Christians and the secular world find the Old Testament penalty for homosexuality to be unenlightened for the modern age. My answer for this is Galatians 3: 10-14 NKJV:
10 For as many as are of the works of the law are under the curse; for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who does not continue in all things which are written in the book of the law, to do them.”[a] 11 But that no one is justified by the law in the sight of God is evident, for “the just shall live by faith.”[b] 12 Yet the law is not of faith, but “the man who does them shall live by them.”[c]
13 Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”[d]), 14 that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
Jesus’ Redemption is that no human need perish in the fires of hell. Christ takes on the curse/penalty of the Law that those that believe on Christ are free because of the Cross. The violence exacted on sinners in the Old Testament was receiving curse/penalty in order to satisfy Justice of broken Law. Thank God for the Redemptive Blood of Christ that expiates the curse of the Law.
The expiation is for those that believe and receive Christ in their heart as Lord and Savior. Without Redemption there is no expiation; however Grace in Christ gives humanity their last breath to repent. New Testament Christians do not string up homosexuals because of their choice of a sinful lifestyle. People who hear the Gospel have two choices: To choose Life in Christ or to choose death (the Second Death) apart from God. Judgment day is when the truth of what choice was made in this temporal life to decide one’s eternal fate.
