A Former Lesbian’s Moving Testimony of Breaking Free From Homosexuality


Jesus at well with Samaritan Woman

About a week ago I shared my pre-Christian lifestyle which was essentially a party-lite, pot smoking and beer guzzling lifestyle. I also related my association with some homosexual amigos that I would sometimes include as a part of the party paradigm. I reaffirmed that the Lord Jesus delivered from that lifestyle. Then, I cross posted (after my thoughts) a Charisma News article by Michael L. Brown who is a former homosexual that found the loving and saving grace of Christ Jesus. I was impressed how Mr. Brown has the very relevant ministry to minister without judgment with homosexuals.

 

I read this story also at Charisma News. Matt Barber pens a biography of a former lesbian he calls ‘Wendy’. Wendy’s story is written as if she is the person speaking sharing the conditions that led her to be attracted to the same-sex. This is another story of God not condemning but rather delivering a person to a true transformed life – an awesome read.

A Former Lesbian’s Moving Testimony of Breaking Free From Homosexuality

[Editor’s note: I have come to know Wendy and her story through an amazing set of circumstances that only God could have arranged. She is a delightful woman who loves the Lord with all of her heart and has asked BarbWire to share her moving story of redemption and freedom from homosexual sin through the power of Christ Jesus. Wendy has said that it is her hope that her testimony might resonate with even one person who can relate to the circumstances that Satan used to lead her into the homosexual lifestyle. If you are that person, then you (and God) will know it. What the enemy intended for evil, God is using for incredible good in the life of Wendy. The same can be true for you. —Matt Barber]

 

My name is Wendy and I was born in a small town in Virginia. I was in church every time the doors were open for as far back as I can remember. I also attended the Christian school within my church that was rooted deeply in an Independent Baptist doctrine.

 

My mama was very sickly and was in and out of the hospital. I have a sister who is almost four years younger than me and a baby brother who only lived for three days and then passed away. Mama died Christmas of 1982 at the age of 32. At the time of her death, I was 11 and my sister was 7.

 

My dad was a rage-a-holic and an alcoholic. He had wanted a boy so badly and lost his one and only son. I believe he decided to make me his boy or at least that is how it seemed. Especially as I got older, he treated me differently than he did my sister. Here is an example: When I got my first car, before dad would give me the keys to drive it, I had to change the tire, without assistance, as he stood and watched. My sister, he just handed the keys.

 

My dad verbally and emotionally abused my family. He was a tyrant, and as a little girl I thought to myself, if all men are like my dad, then I want nothing to do with men. I made a vow to never get married because men were not safe.

 

Due to my family’s rigid and extremely conservative views, I knew that if I told them, they would not believe me. I remained painfully silent about being sexually abused. Satan stole my innocence, and I was exposed to things that I never should have been. As a young child, I was attracted to women. My silence allowed Satan to cultivate a huge lie that confused my sexual identity. It was the birth of unnatural desires that would later manifest into full blown homosexuality.

 

I was in so much pain and confusion that one day I found some relief … with alcohol. I finally found something that would numb me and I could check out of reality. My drinking continued to get worse and worse. It is only by God’s grace and mercy that I did not get a DUI, go to jail, kill somebody or myself.

 

I suffered with depression and often struggled with suicidal thoughts. One night I was drinking and was holding my loaded gun, trying to talk myself into pulling the trigger. God saved me that night from taking my life with a phone call. I fully believe I was going to kill myself that night but God’s loving grace and mercy poured out over me.

 

I had my first consensual sexual experience with a girl at the age of 15. This led me into one unhealthy relationship after another. But sleeping with women was “safe” for me. It was the easy way out considering my fear and hatred toward men. All of those relationships ended the same way; with shame, regret, hurt, unmet expectations, broken promises and emotional pain. Yeah, all that and then some! And to top it all off, I tried to drink it all away. The lie I bought from Satan was that I just hadn’t found the right girl … I just needed to find her. The problem was that there was no right girl. I was absolutely, completely out of the will of God and His divine plan for my life.

 

One day a girl who I was trying to hook up with invited me to church, and I strongly declined. She continued to ask me … So, I asked her, “If I agree to go with you to church ONE TIME, AND I DO MEAN ONE TIME, will you please stop asking me to go to church with you?” She agreed that if I would go one time that she would never ask me again, so I went. I remember it was in February 2007 on a Wednesday night. I cried like a baby through worship and for the first time in my entire life, I felt like I was HOME. I belonged.

 

I continued to go to church every time the doors opened. In April 2007, I rededicated my life to Christ. As a small child, I had made an emotional decision to be saved. I know today that I had never truly surrendered my life to follow Christ.

 

The Lord blessed me when I found a group of believers who struggle with same-sex attraction who truly loved me with no judgment and taught me the root causes of SSA. God’s grace and His unfailing love is what set me free from the bondage of homosexuality. He gave me a way out. God has totally redeemed me and saved me from the chains of alcohol addiction and sexual sin. My heavenly Father began and will continue to heal all my hurts and fill the voids. I stand victorious and a child of the Most High King!!! Not because I deserve it but because I have a Savior who loved me first, while I was still a sinner. I have decided to walk and follow Christ. I will not let my past define me because I am who God says. I am beloved, cherished, a princess and daughter of the Lord, God Almighty!!! Thank you, Jesus, for saving me from a life that was leading me straight to hell.

 

(BarbWire has chosen to withhold Wendy’s last name to protect her from the “LGBT” attack machine. Nobody hates like the “tolerant” left.)

Homosexual Sin and the Christian Approach


Word- Lamp to Feet & Light to Path

John R. Houk

© November 3, 2014

 

Homosexuality – Homosexuality – Homosexuality

 

Using or seeing anything to do with that word involving the alternate lifestyle promoting homosexuality typically strikes like a one-two-BOOM punch. Before my Born Again experience in the late 1970s I had no problem with homosexuals. I even had some friends that were gay. I was so accepting of the gay lifestyle in fact I had a gay dude enter the beginnings of propositioning me. Even before being a Christian I remember the feelings of revulsion as I looked at the gay person straight in the eyes and said rather loudly, “NO! STOP!”

 

I didn’t care how a homosexual lived as long as I was not connected AT ALL to that lifestyle. Back on those heathen days I only had the lofty ambitions of partying with boozing and bonging. In my perception of acceptance or rejection the standards of affinity had nothing to do with gender, race, religious affiliation, atheism, political persuasion and so on. In those days acceptance or rejection was based on the camaraderie of the small group of buddies having a carefree intoxicating and/or stoning good old time.

 

Thank God I was delivered from that self-destructive life. I am convinced today I would have ended up a jail bird either for using pot, selling it or get caught associating with nefarious drug dealers. After being Born Again I became a student of the Bible eventually even attending and graduating from a Bible school after my college days.

 

These days I have become fairly intolerant of the homosexual lifestyle. As far homosexual individuals my attitude has been don’t confront me and I won’t confront you. The thing is though I tend to get my ire up when I read or see a homosexual activist justify their lifestyle at the heinous expense of Christianity.

 

It is at this point I write a blog post castigating any homosexual lifestyle self-justification and it is also the time that Leftists and homosexual activists come out of the woodwork like cockroaches to infect Christian Truth with distortions, lies, deception and almost always followed with the intended epithet of ‘homophobe’.

 

Then there is the situation among well-meaning homosexuals that have become disillusioned with the near pornographic promiscuous homosexual permissiveness. There are (rough speculation) two kinds of disillusioned homosexuals. There is off course the activist homosexual that desires to handle gay promiscuousness in the same way that moral-minded heterosexuals handle heterosexuals handle promiscuity; i.e. with condemnation as not good for society. The other disillusioned homosexual is kind that can’t get over the programming that the physical desire for the same-sex is very normal yet desires to commit to seeking God Almighty in a committed spiritual relationship.

 

I still have no problem being critical of the monogamous gay activist that is still Leftist in the desire to transform society that is anti-Christian in its vision for transformation. These Christian bashing homosexuals will go out of there way with anti-Christian venom.

 

I do have difficulty addressing homosexuals that desire a Christian lifestyle while simultaneously maintain a homosexual lifestyle by justifying the monogamy of homosexual relationship.

 

As a Christian I must choose very carefully on how to deliver a condemnation of homosexuality while knowing the same homosexual person desires a relationship with the Savior Jesus Christ. The Gay-Christian typically acts like an apologist by claiming the Biblical condemnation of homosexuality are thousands of years of misinterpretation of the true meaning of Scriptures. The Gay-Christian cherry-picking the Bible is often joined by Progressive Christian (another view) theologians that cast doubts at least to some degree on the efficacy of the Divinity of the Word of God in the Bible.  

 

That being said there are an awakening amount of people who have abandoned the homosexual lifestyle because they have come to understand what Savior means in the Redemption of Christ. Christ has Delivered those who believe in Him from the snares that exist because the first man Adam sold out to Satan by disobeying the Creator.

 

What value is there in telling a Christian that he/she has been propagandized by Progressive Christianity that sin is relative to the acceptance of present society? I see no up-side with confrontation when the love of God is always the first path of delivering the Good News of Jesus Christ. Christians must depend on the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to show us how to wipe away the darkness of any seeker of Christ. If the darkness is too heavy for a Christian to discern the Holy Spirit path then find somebody who does discern in love. If the darkness has a person in the grip of homosexuality so badly that one refuses to forsake that sin (or any sin for that matter – sin can be addictive) then some form of confrontation will be necessary. Stand firm in the Truth of the Word of God even if a point is reached to shun the recalcitrant person or persons.

 

Take note the way of Christ is not to punish sin with brutality such as hand amputation, whipping, stoning or some such insane act of violence. The way of Christ is to given a sinner a chance of repentance even if it is the last moment before the human spirit separates from the body in physical death:

 

21 Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”

 

22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. (Matthew 18: 21-22 NKJV)

 

God has designed Divine retribution to be distributed by Himself and in this life God has designed civil governments to govern humanity until Christ Returns to establish His Kingdom on earth.

 

 1Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same. 4 For he is God’s minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God’s minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil. 5 Therefore you must be subject, not only because of wrath but also for conscience’ sake. 6 For because of this you also pay taxes, for they are God’s ministers attending continually to this very thing. 7 Render therefore to all their due: taxes to whom taxes are due, customs to whom customs, fear to whom fear, honor to whom honor. (Romans 13: 1-7 NKJV)

 

Take note as long as government is a force to deter evil submit to the governing authorities. The implication is when government ceases to enforce the common good in favor of the evils despotic rule then submitting to that government is not commanded by God.

 

Either way vigilante justice when a just government is ordained is never a good thing. Harming homosexuals because the lifestyle is an abomination in the sight of God is not any single persons call. The right call is to live in peace with all humanity until evil men beginning to force good men to experience evil.

 

17 Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men. 18 If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,”[a] says the Lord. 20 Therefore

 

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
If he is thirsty, give him a drink;
For in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
[b]

 

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. (Romans 12: 17-21 NKJV)

 

Now the thing that inspired me to think on all this is a Charisma News alert I received. A former homosexual Michael L. Brown wrote an article on the penchant of Gay Christians to redefine Scripture through the filter of homosexuality rather than the Divine origin of Scripture. I found it striking that Mr. Brown began his article in an inoffensive manner as possible for homosexuals especially those that desire Christ in their life. As you read on you will an awesome defense for God’s Word.

What the Bible Really Says About Homosexuality

 

By MICHAEL L. BROWN

10/31/14 11:00AM EDT

Charisma News

 

One night I was reading the stories of people who had left the church because they thought God hated them simply because they were attracted to the same sex. I was so overcome with emotion that I put the book down, got alone in another room, fell to my knees and wept. The pain of these men and women for whom Jesus died was palpable and heartbreaking.

 

Could it be that we have been misinterpreting Scripture when it comes to their salvation? Could it be that there is some new understanding of the Bible that would allow us to affirm committed, same-sex relationships?

 

If not, does that mean that we tell a 15 year-old girl who identifies as lesbian, “If you want to follow Jesus, you’ll have to be celibate for the rest of your life, never enjoying the companionship of a spouse and abstaining from sex for life”? Do we tell her, “If you do want to be married, you’ll have to find a way to be attracted to men”? Is that the good news of the gospel?

 

A spate of books, videos, articles and blogs would tell us that, indeed, that is not the gospel and that the good news of Jesus is that you can follow Him and enjoy a committed, homosexual relationship too. And some of the authors of these books, videos, articles and blogs claim to be committed Christians themselves.

 

How do we sort this out?

 

It’s really not that difficult. God’s Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path (Ps. 119:105). It is “living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Heb. 4:12-13).

 

If we will humble ourselves before the Lord, keeping our focus on Jesus and asking the Father to give us His heart for those who identify as LGBT, letting the unequivocal testimony of Scripture guide us, we will find clarity.

 

So what does the Word of God say about homosexual practice?

 

Here are five simple truths that will help separate truth from error and biblical revelation from emotion. (For those wanting a more in-depth treatment, please see my newest book, Can You Be Gay and Christian?)

 

1) The testimony of Scripture remains unchanged: The Bible forbids homosexual practice.

 

It’s clear that the vast majority of those who have changed their views on what the Bible says about homosexuality and now believe in “gay Christianity” have done so based on either their own same-sex desires and attractions or their interaction with “gay Christians” (or with any gay or lesbian person who challenges their assumptions).

 

In other words, they have not changed their thinking based on study of the Scriptures alone, since no new textual, archeological, sociological, anthropological or philological discoveries have been made in the last 50 years that would cause us to read any of these biblical texts differently.

 

Put another way, it is not that we have gained some new insights into what the biblical text means based on the study of the Hebrew and Greek texts. Instead, people’s interaction with the LGBT community has caused them to understand the biblical text differently. This means that, rather than interpreting their sexuality through the lens of the Scriptures, they are interpreting the Scriptures through the lens of their sexuality. This is a guaranteed path to deception.

 

The Word of God, which represents His heart and will for His creation, is absolutely clear on the subject, prohibiting all forms of homosexual practice. This is so clear that a number of leading gay and lesbian theologians acknowledge that they can only justify “gay Christianity” by rejecting the full authority of Scripture.

 

2) The Bible is a heterosexual book.

 

Gay theologians often make reference to the so-called “clobber passages” in the Scriptures, by which they mean the main verses the church has used to clobber them over the head with the Bible.

 

They raise two main arguments against the use of these verses.

 

First, they claim that the verses have been mistranslated, misinterpreted or misused and so, in reality, these Scriptures do not prohibit monogamous, committed, homosexual relationships. Yet they cannot offer any new evidence to back this claim, since none exists.

 

Second, and perhaps more importantly, they point out that out of more than 31,000 verses in the Bible, there are between six and eight “clobber passages” consisting of a total of less than 25 verses.

 

How important can it actually be? And why does the church make such a big deal about something that God’s Word hardly addresses? Isn’t this evidence of homophobic attitudes in the church rather than a careful representation of God’s heart as expressed in His Word?

 

My friend Larry Tomzcak, an author and cultural commentator, offers a helpful illustration that puts the so-called “clobber passages” in a larger context.

 

Let’s say you buy a new cookbook featuring healthy dessert recipes, none of which use sugar. In the introduction to the book, the author explains her reasons for avoiding sugar products, telling you that you will find sumptuous, sweet dessert recipes, but all without sugar. And so, throughout the rest of the book, the word sugar is not found a single time.

 

Would it be right to conclude that avoiding sugar was not important to the author? To the contrary, it was so important that every single recipe in the book makes no mention of sugar.

 

It is exactly the same when it comes to the Bible and homosexuality.

 

There are a few, very strong, very clear, references to homosexual practice—every one of them decidedly negative—and then not a single reference to homosexual practice throughout the rest of the Bible. It is not part of God’s “recipe” for humanity.

 

Throughout the Word, the only relationships that were acceptable in God’s sight or considered normal for society were heterosexual relationships, and so homosexual practice was either irrelevant (because it had nothing to do with the God-ordained relationships of marriage and family and society) or, if mentioned, explicitly condemned.

 

To give just one example out of hundreds, when a gay couple reads the Word and they come to Paul’s words in Ephesians 5:22, 25, “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. … Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her,” they cannot possibly relate to those words the way a heterosexual couple relates to them, since they do not have a true husband-wife relationship.

 

Yet those are the only kinds of romantic and sexual relationships that God speaks of, and that is the only kind of marriage He recognizes or blesses: a man and woman coming together in a lifetime commitment before Him.

 

3) Gender complementarity is of foundational importance.

 

Despite recent attempts to downplay this truth, male-female complementarity is part of God’s foundational design.

 

As we see in Genesis 1-2, it is out of Adam that God forms Eve, the two of them uniquely complementing each other, to the point that when Adam sees his helper and counterpart, he exclaims, “This at last is bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman [Hebrew ‘ishah], because she was taken out of Man [‘ish]” (Gen. 2:23).

 

As Old Testament scholar Gordon Wenham notes, “In ecstasy man bursts into poetry on meeting his perfect helpmeet.”

 

And this is what we cannot miss: It is because the woman was taken out of the man that the very next verse says this: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Gen. 2:24).

 

Genesis is teaching us that because the woman was taken out of the man, the two are now joined back together as one in marital union, each one uniquely complementing the other. And notice: There’s not a word here yet about reproduction or procreation, simply about union (even if procreation is the presupposed outcome).

 

Only a man and a woman can be joined (rejoined!) together in this way.

 

A man plus a man or a woman plus a woman cannot possibly share the same union as a man and a woman, since they do not share the essential of fundamental sameness and difference.

 

To rephrase the famous axiom of John Gray, namely, that men are from Mars and women are from Venus, Mars + Mars or Venus + Venus cannot ever equal Mars + Venus.

 

And in the words of a man who lived as a homosexual all his life (he’s now past 70) but has recently found the Lord, “Even an atheist can understand the lack of anatomical complementarity and therefore biological purpose in male-to-male or female-to-female sexuality.”

 

4) Jesus knew exactly what was inside people, including their “sexual orientation.”

 

We are told today that biblical authors did not understand sexual orientation and that they had no concept of committed, long-term same-sex relationships. What the biblical authors rejected, we are told, was man-boy relationships, or male prostitution, or homosexual promiscuity.

 

All these sinful practices were certainly rejected, but biblical authors like Paul were certainly aware of long-term, male-male relationships.

 

More importantly, Hebrews 4:13 states that “no creature is hidden from [God’s] sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” And it is this God who inspired the writers of the Scriptures. Are gay theologians willing to say that the Lord Himself didn’t understand modern-day, still-evolving concepts like “sexual orientation”?

 

And are they willing to say that the Lord Jesus, who literally looked into the hearts and souls of human beings—John 2:25 says that He knew what was in man—didn’t understand that certain people were “gay”? We’re not talking about the writers of Scripture understanding modern science. We’re talking about them—including Jesus Himself—understanding human nature.

 

To everyone who professes to be a gay Christian, I ask you to get alone with God and ask yourself, “Did God create and design me to be with the same-sex or the opposite sex?”

 

5) The gospel brings good news to homosexual men and women.

 

Gay theologians tell us that the traditional gospel message is a “bad tree,” bringing forth the bad fruit of depression, apostasy and even suicide among gay men and women.

 

To the contrary, the message of the gospel brings forgiveness, freedom, hope and deliverance, as countless thousands of ex-gays can attest, by which I mean followers of Jesus who no longer practice homosexuality. Some of them have even become heterosexual, but even those who have not found a change in their sexual desires have found wholeness and satisfaction in the Lord.

 

In the words of Sam Allberry, a British pastor who is still same-sex attracted but is living a celibate, holy life: “Every Christian is called to costly sacrifice. Denying yourself does not mean tweaking your behavior here and there. It is saying ‘No’ to your deepest sense of who you are, for the sake of Christ. To take up a cross is to declare your life (as you have known it) forfeit. It is laying down your life for the very reason that your life, it turns out, is not yours at all. It belongs to Jesus. He made it. And through His death he has bought it.”

 

Allberry is frequently asked, “But isn’t it harder for someone who is gay?”

 

His answer is clear: “The gospel demands everything of all of us. If someone thinks the gospel has somehow slotted into their life quite easily, without causing any major adjustments to their lifestyle or aspirations, it is likely that they have not really started following Jesus at all. And just as the cost is the same for all of us, so too are the blessings.” (For more from Allberry, read Is God Anti-Gay?)

 

To every reader who is same-sex attracted, I encourage you not to define yourself by your desires but to put all your effort into knowing the Lord and finding intimacy with Him one day at a time, not rewriting the Bible to suit your sexual attractions but casting yourself on God’s goodness and mercy. You will find Him to be absolutely trustworthy, totally understanding and more than enough to meet your every need.

 

Let us, then, not waver in our biblical stance, knowing that is the truth that sets people free (John 8:31-32).

Ben Franklin praising Christian Morality quote

 

John R. Houk

© August 15, 2014

 

I have been having a discussion with a commenter on my NCCR blog. I had posted that discussion in portion under the title, “So who’s Full of Baloney?” As you can expect that discussion has continued in the comment section at the NCCR blog. We have both entered the realm of antagonism once in a while but for the most part the discussion has been civil. I have always assumed Bryan the commenter was a Leftist due to his way Left of Center defense. In his last comment he said he was neither a Leftist nor a Right Winger but read info and made his own decisions. I will probably get into trouble by trying to find a place on the political spectrum for a guy that puts up a stiff defense for Left Wing principle yet considers himself neither Left nor Right on that spectrum. So I won’t.

 

Anyway, Bryan posted a rather lengthy comment to a comment I made knocking a previous Bryan comment. Bryan’s most recent comment is an impressive evenhanded response to my comment. I am going to do you – the reader – a small disservice by not posting Bryan’s last comment. Bryan’s comment was posted on August 5th so I am a bit behind the curve in actually responding. As you read my most recent response you may feel the need to go to Bryan’s comment to read exactly what I am responding to. HERE is the link to Bryan’s most recent comment as of this post if you choose to read.

 

Thus begins my response:

 

Bryan I appreciate the civility of this last comment. The only thing I can get behind 100% is the concept of the Free Choice and the 1st Amendment. As you can guess there are some nuances that I can never agree with.

 

Leftists, Atheists and perhaps centrists that interpret the 1st Amendment as the Freedom from religion in the sense of Christian Morality is flawed. And you can realize why from our exchanges. On the other hand I absolutely support one practicing any faith that does not run contrary to the American-style of the rule of law and I absolutely support a non-religious life if so chosen. What I cannot support is for Leftists, Atheists, Centrists or non-Christian faiths forcing the practice of Christianity out of the public forum. That was never the Original Intent of the Constitution. Rather the Original Intent was to make the rule of Law to not force anyone practice a particular form of Christianity and I’ll accept by extension to not force anyone to practice any form of religion or atheism. However, unconstitutional Separation of Church and State enthusiasts force Christians NOT to practice their faith quite forcefully under the false that practicing faith forces the non-faithful to practice a religion or ideology that is against another’s faith or lack thereof.

 

The Original Intent of the First Amendment was to offer anyone to practice their faith even in a public forum without restrictions than with restrictive prohibitions. The government is not endorsing any religion because the public forum allows one to freely practice like-minded religious principles. After all there is a certain universality on the foundations of Christian between all the Denominations of Protestants (incidentally the Original thinking of the Founding Fathers), Roman Catholics and Eastern Rite Christianity. Hence a prayer by a football team or a city council will probably have more broad agreement than hostile disagreement. If an atheist chooses not to pray – so be it. If a non-Christian in attendance wishes to pray according their own faith – so be it. Don’t force a culture in which Christians cannot pray just because taxpayer money might be paying for a Public School Football team or Field or pays for the meeting room of a City Council et al. That is breaking religious freedom more than the fallacy of allowing prayer establishes a national Church. The 1st Amendment prohibits the government from establishing a national Church (Original Intent) and by extension any national religion.

 

The case for or against abortion is argued as a woman’s free choice with their own body or against the personal life of the unborn baby in a woman’s womb. For a Biblical Christian calling an unborn baby a body extension with philosophically sanitized word of “fetus” is just smoke and mirrors to people of faith.

 

The increasing (and unfortunate) success of homosexual activists changing the minds of a huge chunk of American voters does not make the homosexual lifestyle any more acceptable to Biblical Christians. Yet homosexual activists have successfully used the legal system to force Biblical Christians to make wedding cakes for same-sex weddings, restricted Biblical Christian clubs or associations in Public Schools or Public Colleges from forming while allowing homosexual clubs and associations to prosper. This is a restriction of 1st Amendment religious freedom to accommodate a fairly recent acceptance of homosexuality. Indeed a Biblical Christian is now vilified as a bigot for demanding their religious freedom on a campus while a homosexual club or association gleefully mocks the Biblical Christians because they are restricted and the homosexuals freely practice a lifestyle Biblical Christians find abhorrent.

 

The one complaint you have that indicts me is my attitude toward Islam. I have a huge problem with Islam as a religion and Muslims that support Salafist (i.e. purest) Islam or even Muslims that might consider themselves moderate yet support Islamic terrorist like Hamas that are dedicated to killing Jews, Christians and Americans. I actually sway back and forth between Dajjal’s solution for Muslims who hate and the Christian principles of forgiveness and mercy. It depends on the Muslim atrocity, the Muslim self-justification or the Muslim lie of the day versus how much time I have spent in meditation in the Holy Scriptures. This inner struggle between ending Muslim hate and the patience of Jesus is constant. Perhaps you can be the conscience of the day once in a while that isn’t quite antagonistic.

 

Bryan I am certain I probably did not respond to all your concerns but I have run out of gas. I think you get the idea of my frustration with Leftist, Atheist and Centrist complainers of the practice of Free Market principles and Biblical Christianity. I am also certain your principles are no more tolerant of my Biblical Christian Conservative ideology than I would be with yours.

Political Cartoonist Rick McKee nails the truth about A&E censorship of Duck Dynasty’s Phil Robertson for sticking with the Bible that homosexuality sin.

The A&E television network showed its Left Wing allegiance to New World Order Secular Humanist transformation for suspending (“indefinite hiatus”) Phil Robertson for comments agreeing with the Bible that homosexuality is a sin. I was listening to Fox News this morning and this network with the reputation of a Conservative bastion against the predominantly Leftist Mainstream Media (MSM) had a mixed bag commentary on A&E’s actions. I say a blurb from someone (I can’t remember who) being upset with Robertson for placing homosexuality in the same category of sin as adultery, liars, and so on but be especially upset about placing bestiality as an equal opportunity sin as homosexuality.

 

So was Phil lying about the Bible, homosexuality and sin?

 

20 Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her. 21 And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord. 22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion. (Bold Print added – Leviticus 18: 20-23 NKJV)

 

22 Now Judah did evil in the sight of the Lord, and they provoked Him to jealousy with their sins which they committed, more than all that their fathers had done. 23 For they also built for themselves high places, sacred pillars, and wooden images on every high hill and under every green tree. 24 And there were also perverted persons[a] in the land. They did according to all the abominations of the nations which the Lord had cast out before the children of Israel. (Bold Print added – I Kings 14: 22-24 NKJV)

 

[If you click on the superscript note “a” you will discover “perverted persons” had a better translation:

 

Footnotes:

 

a.      1 Kings 14:24 Hebrew qadesh, that is, one practicing sodomy and prostitution in religious rituals]

 

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. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse,

 

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 

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; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[a] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[b]unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Bold Print added – Romans 1: 18-20; 24-32 NKJV)

 

Trust me this is only a sampling of the Word of God on sex-sins. Homosexuality is included but not singled out. Just as much as adultery, fornication, bestiality, orgies and so on is concerned they are all sins. Phil Robertson is correct!

 

I sympathize with Phil Robertson because I experienced the same kind of experience. I used to primarily blog on the independent website SlantRight.com. The owner of the server that this blog was upon told me my views that homosexuality was a sinful abomination meant I could no longer blog on his server. The owner was going to remove SlantRight.com but we managed to reach a deal that the old SlantRight.com would remain up as an archive site. If you visit there sometimes you might notice that a bandwidth exceeded message might pop. In which case you would need to wait until the beginning of the next month. Also there is always the chance the server owner may arbitrarily to remove the archive site. My point is the Homosexual Agenda in America has successfully waged a war to bring Americans to view homosexuality as natural and normal rather than an abominable sin. If you stick with the Biblical explanation you will be labeled a bigot. Frankly it is my opinion this but another sign that the Last Days are about to begin or perhaps it has already begun and we Christians have not woke up.

 

Get ready for a load of Homosexual bull manure vilifying Christianity. You will some Christian truths being twisted and warped to justify sympathy for homosexuality. An example might be something like – Christians believe in the Golden Rule which is roughly treat others as you would have them treat you. For a homosexual the Golden Rule principle is a point of hypocrisy because Biblical Christian Believers are bigoted toward same-sex gender people. Of course such a homosexual incendiary comment is misguided. Christians should indeed treat all people as they would have them treat them. BUT that does not mean Christians accept and promote living in sin! That is just twisted homosexual propaganda.

 

Placing the shoe on the other foot though. Taking a stand for Biblical Morality does not mean going out and beat up a man or woman living in homosexual sin. Thank God Almighty that He sent His only Begotten Son (God incarnated as a man) to Redeem humanity from the sinful nature that had bound humanity for ages to the kingdom of darkness created at Adam’s Fall. By accepting the Redemptive act of the Lord Jesus Christ’s Resurrection ANY person is set free from the penalty of sin. Humanity is not fully Redeemed yet. That will not happen until the Second Coming of Christ at the end of the Last Days. At that time not only is our human spirit Redeemed but also our soul and body thus defeating the effects of darkness in totality. UNTIL that day of Full Redemption a Christian might find himself susceptible to sin. I John 1:9 is the way back to God’s Kingdom when a Christian allows himself to succumb to sin.

 

5 This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.

 

8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. (Bold Print Added – I John 1: 5-10 NKJV)

 

 

Just as an aside I feel compelled to point out that human beings should be warned that I John 1: 9 is not a magic wand to sin whenever one desires deluding themselves that the constant confession of sin will bring forgiveness and open the door to sin again and again. You have to realize that repetitive sin callouses your human spirit and as such you will find yourself separate from God with no desire to truly seek forgiveness of sins. AND you should realize a human being cannot fool God Almighty. God knows the reality of what is in a person’s heart with it is the darkness of Satan’s age or the Kingdom of Light made available by the Redemptive Blood of Christ.

 

Below I am excerpting the part of the Patriot Post’s December 20th Friday Digest pertaining to the A&E network and Phil Robertson. You should begin to load yourself with information about how the criminalizing of Christianity is about to happen.

THE FOUNDATION

 

“Conscience is the most sacred of all property.” –James Madison

 

CULTURE, SCIENCE & FAITH

A&E Fires Phil

 

“Duck Dynasty” star and patriarch Phil Robertson came face to face with theDuck Dynasty Season 3 political correctness police at A&E again this week when he dared to go “off script” during a GQ interview.

 

Last May, the network requested that the #1 show in cable TV history eliminate its references to God and guns, but Phil said no: “God and guns are part of our everyday lives [and] to remove either of them from the show is unacceptable. If we can’t pray to God on the show, then we will not do the show.”

 

Responding to a question about sin in the current edition of GQ, Phil replied in his colloquial manner, “Start with homosexual behavior and just morph out from there.” He then paraphrased 1 Corinthians: “Don’t be deceived. Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers – they won’t inherit the kingdom of God. Don’t deceive yourself. It’s not right.”

 

The reaction from the two most infamous proponents of gender confusion and homosexual normalization was swift and predictable. The so-called “Human Rights” Campaign protested, “Phil Robertson’s remarks are not consistent with the values of our faith communities or the scientific findings of leading medical organizations. We also know that Americans of faith follow the Golden Rule – treating others with the respect and dignity you’d wish to be treated with. As a role model on a show that attracts millions of viewers, Phil Robertson has a responsibility to set a positive example for young Americans.”

 

Well, we think Phil did set a positive example for young Americans!

 

The Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation complained, “Phil and his family claim to be Christian, but Phil’s lies about an entire community fly in the face of what true Christians believe. He clearly knows nothing about gay people or the majority of Louisianans … who support [them].” They accused Robertson of “vile and extreme stereotypes” and “hateful anti-gay comments.”

 

If you want a good resource for “what true Christians believe,” don’t start with GLAAD, start with Scripture. Both the Old and New Testaments are crystal clear on the subject, as Mark Alexander outlined in detail in his commentary, “Gender Identity, the Homosexual Agenda and the Christian Response.

 

As for “the majority of Louisianans,” Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal clarified, “Phil Robertson and his family are great citizens of the state of Louisiana. The politically correct crowd is tolerant of all viewpoints – except those they disagree with. I don’t agree with quite a bit of stuff I read in magazine interviews or see on TV. In fact, come to think of it, I find a good bit of it offensive. But I also acknowledge that this is a free country and everyone is entitled to express their views. In fact, I remember when TV networks believed in the First Amendment. It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended.”

 

Indeed, A&E immediately surrendered: “We are extremely disappointed to have read Phil Robertson’s comments. The A&E Networks have always been strong supporters and champions of the LGBT community. The network has placed Phil under hiatus from filming indefinitely.”

 

Phil responded, “My mission today is to go forth and tell people about why I follow Christ and also what the Bible teaches, and part of that teaching is that women and men are meant to be together. However, I would never treat anyone with disrespect just because they are different from me. We are all created by the Almighty and like Him, I love all of humanity. We would all be better off if we loved God and loved each other.”

 

The Robertson family responded, “We want to thank all of you for your prayers and support. The family has spent much time in prayer since learning of A&E’s decision. We want you to know that first and foremost we are a family rooted in our faith in God and our belief that the Bible is His word. Phil’s … beliefs are grounded in the teachings of the Bible. Phil is a Godly man who follows what the Bible says are the greatest commandments: ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart’ and ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ Phil would never incite or encourage hate. We are disappointed that Phil has been placed on hiatus for expressing his faith. As a family, we cannot imagine the show going forward without our patriarch at the helm.”

 

In other words, they just put A&E on notice.

 

When it comes to opposing the homosexual agenda, Christians are now routinely condemned for speaking their beliefs. But the tyranny of political correctness is anathema to America itself, and enslaving all of us to a particular code of thought deemed acceptable to leftists is no different from any other kind of slavery.

 

If you’d like to let A&E know what you think, send an email to feedbackaetv@aenetworks.com. (Keep it clean.)

New LGBT Protection Law Criminalizing Believers?


Well now that DOMA has been stricken by the Supreme Court adding judicial fiat to tell Americans to accept homosexuality even if it is against their Christian morals has begun to impinge on American-Christians’ Religious Freedom. In Conservative Texas the city of San Antonio has passed a city law adding more Civil Rights for homosexuals while simultaneously CRIMINALIZING the right for Christians to speak against the Bible-defined abomination we call homosexuality.

The Golden Report

 

Obama first made it a hate crime to speak out against homosexuals, and taught the children in public schools to accept homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle. He forced it upon the US military, and is now making it the law of the land to allow queers to be legally married.

 

In the short time Kerry has been the Secretary of State he has made 5 trips to Israel trying to force a Two State Solution – dividing Israel by giving the enemies of God the Land he promised to the Jews. He has made the prudence of the USA the laughing stock of the world and the Devil’s delight.

 

There is, deep in my spirit, a reverberating echo of that still small voice I know so well, that is saying; “They think they know better, they think they can laugh in my face with their filthy perverted life style, they believe there are no consequences for their mockery of My Word.”

 

Europe, for the most part, has become Godless. Living in the fear and hate of Islam with leaders who seem to be spineless in the face of this fear and hate that has overtaken them.

 

Now fasten your eyes on Israel and see the great hand of God move in His Glory and Power. A great war is about to begin. Not the final battle of Armageddon but the war of Zechariah 12 – followed by a great outpouring of anti-Semitism against Jews and Israel. It is mostly during this time period we will need boats and all the help we can get to save as many Jews as we possibly can, with your help. Gen. 12:3.

 

Pray for the peace of Jerusalem, for our son Joel and all the IDF, pray for this ministry and your part in it.

 

Shalom, Jerry Golden

Tolerance and Pink Assaults on Christians


Christians Don't Change Mind

Homosexual Activists scream for a tolerant society of their abominable lifestyle practice. Homosexuals shout and scream that society recognize their persuasion as normal. AND with the help of the Mainstream Media, Hollywood and Television American culture has nearly been propagandized to accept as normal that which God Almighty condemns as an abomination.

 

AND YET when Christians unite to exercise their Constitutional Right in the public sector so-called homosexual tolerant and compassionate people erupt into a riotous mania ASSAULTING Christian Preachers for holding signs and saying the Biblical stand on a homosexual lifestyle.

 

Check out this Gay Brigade assault that occurred in Seattle in the vicinity of the iconic Space Needle.

While photographing this event, I witnessed a growing anger from some of the crowd, towards the preachers. All of a sudden a few members in the crowd attacked the street preachers. I switched to video to document the incident. I DO NOT condone what the attackers did. While I don’t agree with these preachers, it is their Constitutional right to be in public and preach. I think it is tragic that some of the people who justifiably want tolerance in their life, deny that same tolerance to others. I commend the responding Seattle PD Officers for the professional way they handled this situation. The main aggressor was arrested.

On a side note: I think it is a testament to the assailants and aggressors that the Seattle PD removes a PBR can and some liquor bottle from the top of the baby buggy this woman has her children in. Where were those children while their caretakers were beating innocent people up?

Update: KOMO News has run my video. It can be seen at:

Ok YouTube: This video has gotten WAY bigger than I anticipated. I will no longer have the video set to approve comments. There are just WAY too many. I will not be monitoring comments or responding to them. Any bigotry, racism, and what not, is no longer under my control.

Validate Homosexuality – Look for the Plains of Sodom


Escape---Sodom-and-Gomorrah---Joachim-Patinir

John R. Houk

© July 2, 2013

 

Yesterday I posted an exposé from a pro-Catholic and traditional morality Vlog site called ChurchMilitantTV about a closet homosexual lobby within the Vatican itself. Homosexuality spoken about was actually a problem that has plagued the Catholic Church for some time. That moral plague is predator Priests enticing and/or forcing minor boys to have sex with them. The crime of pedophilia is an act that most Americans find disgustingly abhorrent that a man would defile a male child in such a cruel fashion. In Christianity the Clergy of Catholics, Protestants and Eastern Orthodox Churches are supposed to be a paradigm of morality as established by the Holy Scriptures.

 

Indeed Christian-hating Leftists and homosexual activists have gone to great lengths to exploit this small lobby contagion of homosexuals within the Catholic Church as hypocrites. These Christian-haters use Pedophile Priests as a good reason to nullify the morality of Christianity to be replaced by Moral Relativity.

 

Leftists and homosexual activists of course are quite selective in heaping Christian-hating epithets at the Roman Catholic Church. These same Christian-haters will turn around and heap praise on Protestant Denominations that have invalidated Biblical Morality to grasp at Moral Relativity. I found a Wikipedia table diagram of Churches that are accepting of homosexuality in four categories: membership, Ordination, blessing same-sex unions and marrying same-sex couples. I am uncertain on how up to date the diagram is. Below is a list of mainline Protestant Denominations from that list that are accepting of homosexuality regardless of the Word of God condemning the vulgar lifestyle:

 

Christian Church-Disciples of Christ:

 

1)    Membership  

 

Reformed Church in America

 

1)    Membership

 

Episcopal Church

 

1)    Membership

 

2)   Ordination

 

Evangelical Lutheran Church of America-ELCA

 

1)    Membership

 

2)   Ordination

 

Presbyterian Church USA

 

1)    Membership

 

2)   Ordination

 

Religious Society of Friends-Quakers  

 

1)    Membership

 

United Church of Christ-UCC

 

1)    Membership

 

2)   Ordination

 

3)   Same-Sex Unions

 

The United Methodist Church (UMC) was not on that Wikipedia table diagram; however the UMC is amenable to homosexual membership while condemning the homosexual lifestyle. Also the UMC will probably formerly accept ordination and same-sex marriage because both aspects exist even though UMC rules says no to both.

 

If I missed any Denominations that have tossed out the Bible when it comes to homosexuality I am confident someone will point it out to me.

 

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) recently drove America further into Moral Relativity and away from Biblical Morality by destroying the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) that mandated that marriage is a union between a man and a woman. Then SCOTUS overturned the will of California State voters by essentially affirming a District Court ruling in California that Proposition 8 – which like DOMA declared marriage a union between a man and a woman – was unconstitutional. SCOTUS said the legal team defending Proposition 8 had no standing in Court because it was a private organization doing the California State government’s job. Of course old Governor Moonbeam and the State legislation are dominated by Christian-Morality-Hating Democrats; thus the State government refused to defend the will of the California State voters.

 

I am rehashing the SCOTUS anti-Christian activism in the last near hundred years over the Original Intent of the Constitution because now further moral degradation will be in America’s future. The pedophilia in the Roman Catholic Church could become legalized as the next step in Moral Relativity. If America becomes propagandized into totally accepting the moral depravity of homosexuality, Man/Boy sexual relations will not be far behind in the legal acceptance in the rule of law.

 

After Moral Relativism mandates Man/Boy NAMBLA style acceptance of sexual relationships then it will be illegal in the USA for the majority Roman Catholic hierarchy to discipline pederast Priests that will claim those boys voluntarily engaged in sex with adult Priests. Incidents described in this article will longer be scandalous.

 

Italian investigators have opened an inquiry into claims by a convicted paedophile priest that an underage prostitution ring has been operating inside the Holy Roman Church with clergymen hiring rentboys for sex inside churches.

 

Don Patrizio Poggi, 46, told Italian authorities that a former Carabinieri pimped boys for nine clergymen.

 

Poggi, who served a five-year sentence for abusing teenage boys while he was a parish priest at the San Filippo Neri church in Rome, said he made the allegations to “protect the Holy Church and the Christian community.”

 

The boys were chosen because they were starving and desperate, he claimed, according to Il Messaggero newspaper.

 

The former policeman used to recruit the boys, mostly eastern European immigrants, outside a gay bar named Twink near Rome’s Termini train station. He reportedly sat in his Fiat Panda – marked “Emergency Blood” to avoid parking fines – to make his selection.

 

He was helped in the recruitment process by a friend who ran a modelling agency. He lured underage boys into prostitution through “false work offers for modelling and acting roles”, Poggi said.

 

The agent also looked for rentboys at gay discos, saunas and gyms across Rome. An accountant was also said to be involved.

 

The boys were paid 150-500 (£130-£425) to perform sex acts in church premises across the capital.

 

Poggi also accused the former Carabinieri of selling consecrated hosts for satanic rites.

 

Poggi reportedly presented documentary and photographic evidence to police in the company of two senior Vatican clergymen who vouched for his credibility.

 

Poggi identified the nine clergymen, including two senior church officials and a religion lecturer. Three people have been placed under formal investigation.

 

The allegations were rejected by the Vatican. Cardinal Agostino Vallini, head of the Catholic Vicariate of Rome, said the priest made false claims out of a desire for vengeance and personal resentment.

 

The Vatican refused to reinstate Poggi after he served his term.

 

“The cardinal expresses his full confidence in the magistracy and declares himself full convinced that this slander will be demolished, demonstrating Poggi’s claims to be untrue,” Vallini said.

 

“God will hold everyone accountable for their deeds.” (Vatican Rentboy and Satanism Claims Revealed by Paedophile Priest Don Patrizio Poggi; By Umberto Bacchi; IBT; 6/27/13 11:35 AM GMT)

 

And check this out from Leftist website Right Wing Watch. The irony is the post is meant as an indictment against Conservatives and Biblical Morality yet the article is informative of the path SCOTUS is taking Christianity in America.

 

Gary Bauer is joining other anti-gay activists in warning that they should prepare to face jail time as a result of gay rights victories at the Supreme Court. In the Washington Times today, Bauer claims that people who oppose same-sex marriage will “find themselves in court” and religious people may soon be “fined or jailed” because of their views.

 

The ultimate goal of homosexual-rights activists is not to legalize same-sex marriage. Rather, it is to silence those who disagree with them and, if necessary, to throw them in jail. In a world in which the biblical viewpoint of marriage is demonized, it does not take a constitutional scholar to predict that soon those who hold that view will find themselves in court.

How did we get to the point where homosexual-rights activists would be clamoring to redefine society’s oldest and most reliable institution and people of faith would be worried about being fined or jailed for teaching their faith?

A lot had to happen, and it’s not all the left’s fault. It took the breakdown of traditional marriage. It took churches deciding that they could accommodate the homosexual culture or ignore it altogether. It took businesses placing their bottom lines ahead of morality. It took politicians who assured voters on the campaign trail that they would protect marriage and then did nothing to keep their promises once they arrived in Washington.

As a society, we have lost the understanding of what marriage is and what the consequences will be if we redefine it. Nobody has the right to redefine marriage. Doing so ignores research that makes clear that children do best when raised by a mother and a father. Nobody has the right to force children to grow up without the unique contributions that a mother and a father provide.

 

Not to be outdone, Joseph Farah of WorldNetDaily claims the Supreme Court may take away Christians’ right to vote:

 

Now where do we go from here?

What’s next?

It’s obvious, isn’t it?

The Supreme Court virtually declared an open season on those with whom the 5-4 majority disagree.

We are no longer relevant. What we think no longer counts. We are, after all, bigots who only want to demean homosexuals.

So when does the persecution begin?

When are we stripped of our citizen status, the right to vote, the right to bear arms and other constitutionally guaranteed liberties? Isn’t that next?

If not, why not?

It was just 10 years ago to the day of this decision that the Supreme Court issued another sweeping ruling in the Lawrence v. Texas case. It struck down anti-sodomy laws in that state and, effectively, across the country.

Justice Antonin Scalia wrote in his dissent in that case that the ruling would inevitably lead to same-sex marriage and polygamy. The cultural establishment scoffed at that opinion. It mocked Scalia. Why?

Because only 10 years ago, the notion of same-sex marriage was practically unheard of. It was a laughable proposition.

That’s how quickly the 6,000-year-old institution of marriage was officially and arbitrarily redefined with the imprimatur of five high priests and priestesses wearing black robes.

Will it take another 10 years for the retribution against marriage defenders to begin? I doubt it. My guess is the plans are already being drafted.

As for me and my house, however, we will continue to serve the Lord – the author of marriage and everything else. (Bauer: Anti-Gay Activists May Be Thrown in Jail Following DOMA; Posted by Brian Tashman; Right Wing Watch; 6/27/2013 12:30 pm)

 

Be sure to thank SCOTUS, Leftists and Homosexual Activists when Christianity becomes illegal or speaking Biblical Truths places a Christian in jail and American society devolves into a land like the Biblical Sodom and Gomorrah.

Unbelievably there is a significant homosexual lobby within the confines of the Roman Catholic Church AMONG the Clergy. Clearly this an anti-Christ spirit bringing Church leaders as leaders of the Christian flock. Gay Priests and Gay Nuns existence as teachers and examples of to their faithful. This in turn infests the Body of Christ with a cancer that breeds the acceptance of the homosexual abomination.

SCOTUS Continues to Push America into Ungodliness

Thanks to the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) America slides deeper and further away from God’s Word on homosexuality. That essentially is a part of the “Change” promised by the Deceiver-in-Chief Obama to extricate the influence of Christian Morality from influencing American culture.

 

I haven’t read the majority and the dissent in which SCOTUS struck down the portions of Defense of Marriage ACT (DOMA) pertaining to States that have legalized same-sex marriage. THEN SCOTUS ruled that the private organization (ProtectMarriage.com) defending California’s Proposition 8 which made same-sex marriage illegal in California DID NOT HAVE STANDING to defend State legislation.

 

In the case of California in which the Leftist Democrats love the abomination of homosexuality against the will of California voters and the State government refused to protect the will of California voters it means the 9th Appellate Court decision vacating Prop. 8 is vacated but that the original Court in California that vacated Prop. 8 is upheld. The experts I heard on Fox News seemed to think that ends litigation pertaining to Prop. 8 since ONLY the California State government has standing to defend the Proposition 8’s legality in the Appellate and SCOTUS level of the Federal Courts.

 

No matter how you look at it, the Supreme Court has ruled that the Word of God pertaining to homosexuality is UNCONSTITUTIONAL! God have mercy on the Americans that stand on the Word of God but are now coerced by the American rule of law to accept homosexuality as normal and legal. Biblical believing Christians are now in the potential situation of criminal and civil actions being enforced against them if they refuse to service anything to do with same-sex marriage.

 

The five Justices that struck down portions of DOMA extricated their opinion from the Fifth Amendment that came into existence as part of the Bill of Rights (first ten Amendments) to give specificity to the Rights of American citizens. What do you think that the Founding Fathers would have thought of using the Fifth Amendment to validate homosexual rights despite God’s Word declaring same-acts as IMMORAL?

 

Fifth Amendment

 

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.

 

I am not seeing the dispensation of civil rights to immoral homosexuals.

 

God’s Word on Homosexuality

 

1 Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening, and Lot was sitting in the gate of Sodom. When Lot saw them, he rose to meet them, and he bowed himself with his face toward the ground.

 

4 Now before they lay down, the men of the city, the men of Sodom, both old and young, all the people from every quarter, surrounded the house. 5 And they called to Lot and said to him, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us that we may know them carnally.

 

6 So Lot went out to them through the doorway, shut the door behind him, 7 and said, “Please, my brethren, do not do so wickedly! 8 See now, I have two daughters who have not known a man; please, let me bring them out to you, and you may do to them as you wish; only do nothing to these men, since this is the reason they have come under the shadow of my roof.”

 

9 And they said, “Stand back!” Then they said, “This one came in to stay here, and he keeps acting as a judge; now we will deal worse with you than with them.” So they pressed hard against the man Lot, and came near to break down the door. 10 But the men reached out their hands and pulled Lot into the house with them, and shut the door. 11 And they struck the men who were at the doorway of the house with blindness, both small and great, so that they became weary trying to find the door.

 

13 For we will destroy this place, because the outcry against them has grown great before the face of the Lord, and the Lord has sent us to destroy it.”

 

24 Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah, from the Lord out of the heavens. 25 So He overthrew those cities, all the plain, all the inhabitants of the cities, and what grew on the ground. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Gen. 19: 1, 4-11, 13, 24-25 NKJV)

 

22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. 23 Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.

 

24 ‘Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. 25 For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. (Bold Emphasis Mine – I added verse 23 so there is an understanding of the level of “perversion” God views homosexuality Lev. 18: 22-25 NKJV)

 

13 If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Lev. 20: 13 NKJV)

 

Homosexual Activists and Apologists are big to point out that Lev. 20:13 calls the penalty of Law for homosexuality is death. How wrong is this in modern society, right? I don’t know how Jews have updated this Scripture from the Torah – which is the Pentateuch of the Old Testament to us Christians – But the update in Christianity is the Blood of Christ from His death, burial and Resurrection delivers any Believer in Christ’s Redemptive ACT from the penalty of the Law in this life. In the resurrection of all the dead there will be a time that dead people face the Last Judgment. It is in the Last Judgment where the hearts of men (all people for you politically correct dudes) are expressly known in which people choose unrepentant sin of faith in Christ. The unrepentant will judged with a penalty according to their sin and sent to the appropriate chamber of Hell which I believe is ultimately the Lake of Fire – always burning in pain but never ceasing from an existence of eternal punishment. The unrepentant homosexual still faces the penalty of death in the Law; however not in this life but in the next life.

 

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have[a] peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

 

6 For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

 

8 But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. 10 For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. 11 And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation.

 

12 Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned— 13 (For until the law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law. 14 Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. 15 But the free gift is not like the offense. For if by the one man’s offense many died, much more the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abounded too many. 16 And the gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned. For the judgment which came from one offense resulted in condemnation, but the free gift which came from many offenses resulted in justification. 17 For if by the one man’s offense death reigned through the one, much more those who receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ.)

 

20 Moreover the law entered that the offense might abound. But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more, 21 so that as sin reigned in death, even so grace might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Romans 5: 1-2, 6, 8-17, 20-21 NKJV)

 

1 What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? 2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it? 3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? 4 Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.

 

12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body, that you should obey it in its lusts. 13 And do not present your members as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but present yourselves to God as being alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness to God. 14 For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law but under grace.

 

15 What then? Shall we sin because we are not under law but under grace? Certainly not! 16 Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness? 17 But God be thanked that though you were slaves of sin, yet you obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine to which you were delivered. 18 And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness. 19 I speak in human terms because of the weakness of your flesh. For just as you presented your members as slaves of uncleanness, and of lawlessness leading to more lawlessness, so now present your members as slaves of righteousness for holiness.

 

20 For when you were slaves of sin, you were free in regard to righteousness. 21 What fruit did you have then in the things of which you are now ashamed? For the end of those things is death. 22 But now having been set free from sin, and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness, and the end, everlasting life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Romans 6: 1-4, 12-23 NKJV)

 

The Gift of Grace through the Blood of Jesus Christ wipes away the past slate of sin. At Salvation a person’s inner spirit is renewed and transformed into a new spirit man in the image of Christ rather than in the image of Fallen Adam. What about those who have tasted the Grace of God yet in time rejected Salvation by relying on the unredeemed carnal nature? It happens to the best of us and to those full of themselves, you KNOW the carnal nature if allowed to will dominate a Christian leading to the possibility of having their name whited out of the Book of Life in the Last Judgment. And yet what if you come to your senses and realize your choices have separated you from God that could lead to the Second Death which is eternal separation from the Presence of God occurring after the Last Judgment. All sinners – non-Christians and Carnal Christians – have a moment in their life to change their heart as God knows all. There is no lie that hides the truth from God.

 

This parable is for those who have renounced Christ for what was deceptively thought a better life in sin:

 

11 Then He said: “A certain man had two sons. 12 And the younger of them said to his father, ‘Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. 13 And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living. 14 But when he had spent all, there arose a severe famine in that land, and he began to be in want. 15 Then he went and joined himself to a citizen of that country, and he sent him into his fields to feed swine. 16 And he would gladly have filled his stomach with the pods that the swine ate, and no one gave him anything.

 

17 “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger! 18 I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, 19 and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.”’

 

20 “And he arose and came to his father. But when he was still a great way off, his father saw him and had compassion, and ran and fell on his neck and kissed him. 21 And the son said to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against heaven and in your sight, and am no longer worthy to be called your son.’

 

22 “But the father said to his servants, ‘Bring[a] out the best robe and put it on him, and put a ring on his hand and sandals on his feet. 23 And bring the fatted calf here and kill it, and let us eat and be merry; 24 for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ And they began to be merry.

 

25 “Now his older son was in the field. And as he came and drew near to the house, he heard music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants and asked what these things meant. 27 And he said to him, ‘Your brother has come, and because he has received him safe and sound, your father has killed the fatted calf.’

 

28 “But he was angry and would not go in. Therefore his father came out and pleaded with him. 29 So he answered and said to his father, ‘Lo, these many years I have been serving you; I never transgressed your commandment at any time; and yet you never gave me a young goat, that I might make merry with my friends. 30 But as soon as this son of yours came, who has devoured your livelihood with harlots, you killed the fatted calf for him.’

 

31 “And he said to him, ‘Son, you are always with me, and all that I have is yours.  (Bold Emphasis Mine – Luke 15: 11-31 NKJV)

 

This parable can applied to all sinning Christians. Nonetheless the topic is homosexuality is an abomination before God. A homosexual that has left Christianity or deceptively still views them self as a Christian you need to be aware that repentance will lead you into the arms of our Loving Father God through the Grace provided by the Blood of Jesus. HOWEVER, any Christian that unrepentantly rejects Salvation in Christ and dies in their sin – such as homosexuality – probably will have their name stricken from the Book of Life in the Last Judgment. Now I say “probably” because I am not God and I have no right to act as an eternal Judge. That responsibility was delivered to the Jesus Christ the Son of God and coequal in Oneness as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

 

4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted the heavenly gift, and have become partakers of the Holy Spirit, 5 and have tasted the good word of God and the powers of the age to come, 6 if they fall away,[b] to renew them again to repentance, since they crucify again for themselves the Son of God, and put Him to an open shame.

 

7 For the earth which drinks in the rain that often comes upon it, and bears herbs useful for those by whom it is cultivated, receives blessing from God; 8 but if it bears thorns and briers, it is rejected and near to being cursed, whose end is to be burned. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Hebrews 6: 4-8 NKJV)

 

Okay, this is not Islam in which two contradictory verses are both true. I should point out that I am not a theologian even though I have graduated from a two year Bible School program. So what I am about to write be sure to check it out with your Pastor.

 

The Prodigal Son indicates there is repentance to one who has abandoned his faith. Hebrews 6: 4-8 seems to indicate the opposite in that once you have tasted the privileges of Salvation and go on to live a sinners life rejecting Christ’s Salvation, then there is no repentance that can return one back to the family of God.

 

As a Christian I believe the Word of God is the inerrant Truth. Rather than pull an “aha!” and proclaim the Bible is fake because it is a book of contradicting theology, I choose to reason a compatibility in which Scriptures are the Truth if there is a seeming contradiction.

 

I believe that scarlet thread that connects the Prodigal Son and the Hebrews verses concerning there is only one repentance is this: The Prodigal Son never disdained his father but came to his senses that a sinful lifestyle will lead to death. The Hebrews repentance once only Scriptures is applicable to those that have chosen the rabbit hole of no return. Thus any repentance – or life turning change – is a lie and is impossible. To such a person the act of repentance is not a heart change but rather a deceptive live to benefit some agenda and thus is a person throwing the Redemptive Blood of Christ in the old sticking pigsty. And that is my unauthoritative reconciliation enabling one Truth.

 

Allow me to reiterate that SCOTUS’s decision to force the Federal government to recognize States that have made same-sex marriage recognized by a minority of States is an abomination before God. In many cases those States that have legalized same-sex marriage has done with State Courts and NOT by legislation or a People’s Initiative that many States give to their voters. Indeed that brings me to SCOTUS and Proposition 8. Proposition 8 defined marriage as between one male and one female nullifying same-sex marriage. SCOTUS decided that the private individuals that have appealed a District Court decisions that made Prop. 8 unconstitutional within the California State Constitution did not have standing. The Dem Leftists of California’s State Congress and their Dem Leftist Governor refused to defend the will of the California voters in any courtroom.

 

So here is SCOTUS making same-sex marriage rights a State decision that the Federal government must honor and then slapping Christian Morality private citizens in the face for defending the California voters because the State government refused to back the voters.

 

SCOTUS defends States’ Rights and then rejects States’ Rights simultaneously. This is all a bunch of malarkey to force Americans to further accept that which God calls an abomination; viz. same-sex relationships!

 

God’s Word including Homosexuality

 

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. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

 

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

 

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; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality,[c] wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving,[d] unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them. (Bold Emphasis Mine – Romans 1: 18-32 NKJV)
