Now fighting using the Sword of the Spirit

“Sanctify them by they truth: thy Word is truth.” (John 17:17)

Just as Saul’s life has been radically changed by Christ on that Damascus road, the pound per pound boxing champion of the world also clearly has encountered the Truth in God’s Word. Nothing is more important to him now more than the upholding of God’s Truth in His Word.

From The Christian Post -

Manny Pacquiao, Christian Filipino boxer and congressman, has reportedly disagreed with President Barack Obama's support of redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, and has insisted people should always put God's word first.

Manny Pacquiao, Christian Filipino boxer and congressman, has reportedly disagreed with President Barack Obama‘s support of redefining marriage to include same-sex couples, and has insisted people should always put God’s word first.

After Obama vocalized that he was in support of gay marriage earlier this week, Pacquiao was adamant that the president had got it wrong. In an interview with the National Conservative Examiner while training in Los Angeles, Calif., Pacquiao spoke about the need for society to put “God’s words first.”

The boxer quoted Leviticus 20:13 when referring to the president’s decision to advocate for same-sex marriage.

“If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable,” Pacquiao told the Examiner. “They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.”

However, Obama has attempted to explain his reasoning for supporting a redefinition of marriage, using the Golden Rule of loving your neighbor as justification for ignoring other verses condemning homosexuality in the Bible.

“Do unto others as you would have them do to you,” the president said in an ABC News report. “At a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”

Read the Bible, “The Manual of Life”

While the 33-year-old boxer said he respected Obama, he told the Examiner that the president should read the bible or “manual of life” to better society.

“God only expects man and woman to be together and to be legally married, only if they so are in love with each other,” Pacquiao said. “It should not be of the same sex so as to adulterate the altar of matrimony, like in the days of Sodom and Gomorrah of Old.” – Source – The Christian Post

    My wife and myself fully support Manny Pacquiao defending voice of marriage be respected as a union of man and woman made in heaven happened on earth.

    I do not wish or want to be f….d by my neighbour, neither man or woman.
    Even when ‘loved’ by woman neighbour he is luring me to adultery, when ‘loved’ by man neighbour he is luring me to eternal damnation.

    Marriage between man and woman is sacred and sacred it shall remain forever.
    Amen.

    Peace be unto you

    God Bless you Manny Pacquiao.

    Manny Pacquiao is doing God’s will, he cannot speak of the truth on his own but through God’s blessing. God chooses those to be saved and to me personally, Manny appears strong in his convictions amis a evil world we live in. Manny, never stop seeking the Lord…………..

  8. Frank says:

    This is the real thing. God created a man and a woman, not an hybrid between them. We have to order, in the name of Jesus of Nazareth, the liberty of those souls that has been taken by the devil so they can see the truth. I feel very sad because of this statement from the president of the USA. He forgot that there are more Christians than gays and lesbians in this country.

  9. When we think of God’s judgment, we need to read the book of Jude. He refers to the times of Noah and the flood, the Israelites being in the wilderness and dying before reaching the promise land because of their unbelief, and those that were destroyed by Sodom and Gomorrah because of sexual immorality and perversion. He also says that they were examples of those who would be condemned in the lake of fire for eternity. These are words written by Jude who was thought to be the 1/2 brother of Jesus.

    I love it when people point out things in the OT law, like the capital punishment verses and they don’t take the context into consideration. They look at things on a total superficial level but yet believe that they have a massive intellect. The NT explains that the Law (and punsishements) were to serve as a tutor or teacher to lead people to Christ. The capital punishment verses were to show people that the wages of sin are death. Ultimately sin will lead to your demise this is a fact. It was simple an action brought a consequence. They committed the action at their own peril. Also, when the law was given God’s focus was on Israel growing into a righteous nation so that they would be sanctified for the whole world to see. If a little bit of sin was allowed or welcomed it would spread like fire through the nation, that is another reason for the harsh penalty. I used to get flustered when people brought up some of the OT verses now I just yawn.

    I quote… “Obama has attempted to explain his reasoning for supporting a redefinition of marriage, using the Golden Rule of loving your neighbor as justification for ignoring other verses condemning homosexuality in the Bible.”…. WHERE IS THE GENUINE LOVE TO OTHERS BY OBAMA HERE, HE’S TOLERATING SIN… WHY THESE SICKED PEOPLE PURSUE “CHURCH MARRIAGE” ON THE FIRST PLACE?

    Mabuhay ka Manny Pacquiao! Tunay kang magiting, hindi lang sa parisukat na arena, kindi pati na sa pananampalataya… PURIHIN ANG DIYOS!
