I am pro-Biblical Morality. As a promoter of Biblical Morality I am often the target of atheists, secularists and homosexuals for the good old fashioned anti-Christian epithet. The epithet will typically begin with “Christians are hypocrites” followed by the epithet which is believed to describe the perceived hypocrisy.
The hypocrisy is usually explained that Christians sin as much if not more than non-Christians; ergo who is a Christian judging from his/her high horse that dares to claim homosexuality, a libertine lifestyle and/or such and such is a wicked sin.
For clarity’s sake Christians are not to judge people for their sins or holiness; however Christians are to judge the lifestyle of a person to see if the fruit is good or rotten. Good fruit does not hang with rotten fruit.
37 “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
43 “For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart[g] brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. (Luke 6: 37, 43-45 NKJV)
1 “I am the true vine, and My Father is the vinedresser. 2 Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away;[a] and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit. 3 You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you. 4 Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. 6 If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will[b] ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you. 8 By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples. (John 15: 1-7 NKJV. Emphasis added)
The homosexual lifestyle is ungodly bad fruit.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting (Romans 1: 18-19, 26-28 NKJV)
Share the Good News of Christ to a person practicing homosexuality without judgmental arrogance.
16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ,[a] for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”[b] (Romans 1: 16-17 NKJV)
14 Later He appeared to the eleven as they sat at the table; and He rebuked their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they did not believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. 15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. (Mark 16: 14-16 NKJV)
4 Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; 5 does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; 6 does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; 7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Cor. 13: 4-7 (NKJV)
There is no way that a Christian or a person living by Biblical Morality can give a vote of confidence toward homosexuality as a normal lifestyle.
I am going to assert something that is not politically correct today. In America AIDS began as a homosexual disease and today it is among homosexuals that AIDS hits the hardest.
Knowing the connection between AIDS and homosexuality the FDA has banned homosexuals as blood donors since 1977. Leftists are placing the rest of the American population in danger by demanding that homosexuals also should be allowed to be blood donors. Senator John Kerry is leading the charge to allow homosexuals to be blood donors. This is the height of stupidity in making gestures to be politically correct. HIV/AIDS is a disease that may not manifest for a time and homosexual activists and politically correct Leftists want to allow homosexuals to be blood donors? Does anyone else see that this is ludicrous?
