NY Times Says Biblical Christianity Is What’s Stopping Full Acceptance Of The LGBT Agenda

Homosexuality and Biblical Christianity don’t have to be in conflict in any church anywhere. That many Christians regard them as incompatible is understandable, an example not so much of...

Christians have moved far beyond Scripture when it comes to gender roles

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!” Isaiah 5:20 (KJV)

The liberal rallying cry these days is that the bible is nothing more than “ancient texts” with little to meaning or relevance to our daily lives in our cutting edge, technology-laden, social society of 2015. These is heard not only in the New York Times piece we are discussing today, but also prevalent in the worship-du-jour Emergent Church as well.

But before you throw out the baby with the bath water, they are right about one thing. The only reason why there has not been an across the board buy-in on the same-sex lifestyle is because the last remnants biblical Christianity is preventing it. But like the legendary Titanic after it hit the iceberg began to take on water, the professing Christian church in America has already begun it’s lisping descent into Laodicean apostasy.

Frank Bruni, writing in the Op-Ed section of the New York Times today, said this:

“Several prominent denominations, which have come to a new understanding of what the Bible does and doesn’t decree, of what people can and cannot divine in regard to God’s will. And homosexuality and Christianity don’t have to be in conflict in any church anywhere. That many Christians regard them as incompatible is understandable, an example not so much of hatred’s pull as of tradition’s sway. Beliefs ossified over centuries aren’t easily shaken.” source

That’s an amazing statement. The bible very clearly states, in both Testaments, that God is 100% opposed to the same-sex lifestyle, in whatever form it takes. Jesus Himself, in stating that He came to fulfill the Law of Moses which condemns the same-sex lifestyle, also is set against it. The bible lists as the reason for the collapse of the Church in the last days not from an outward attack, but from an inward collapse. It’s called the great Falling Away:

“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;” 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (KJV)

Further, the Bible says in the book of Revelation, that the last Church is a weak, powerless, “lukewarm” Church that Jesus is so disgusted with that He “spews it” out of His mouth:

“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:14-16 (KJV)

This video shows a great example of how biblically ignorant liberals wrest the Scriptures to their own destruction:

The truly sad part of this video is that so many Christians will watch it and not even know why it’s such a perversion of what the bible teaches. Get yourself a copy of Clarence Larkin’s Dispensational Truth.

Bruni goes on to say that “In the United States, we have abandoned the idea that women are second-class, inferior and subordinate to men, but the Bible clearly teaches that,” said Jimmy Creech, a former United Methodist pastor who was removed from ministry in the church after he performed a same-sex marriage ceremony in 1999. “We have said: That’s a part of the culture and history of the Bible. That is not appropriate for us today.”

And we could say the same about the idea that men and women in loving same-sex relationships are doing something wrong. In fact the United Church of Christ, the Episcopal Church and the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) have said that. So have most American Catholics, in defiance of their church’s teaching. source

As the New York Times clearly points out, in denomination after denomination, Christians are abandoning their standing on the Bible as the standard in all matters of faith and practice, and embracing the LGBT same-sex movement and lifestyle.

Don’t blame the liberals like Frank Bruni, don’t blame the socialist-progressive news rags like the New York Times, and don’t even blame the oh-so-enthusiastic for the LGBT lifestyle American president Barack Hussein Obama.

You want someone to blame? Go look in the mirror.

      Blessed Are Those Who Overcome for My Name’s Sake
      11/9/06 From YahuShua HaMashiach, Jesus The Christ, Our Lord and Savior – The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For Someone Who Asked if They Can Still Serve The Lord as a Pastor Even Though They Are Homosexual, and For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
      Thus says The Lord to His servant, whom He loves: You seek Me, and this is very good. Yet if you wish to please Me, then you must first become My disciple, a devoted servant who walks in My ways…My son, I have not forsaken you. If you ask of Me forgiveness, I shall surely forgive you, even for all you have done. Yet to continue in those same sins for which you sought forgiveness is most unpleasant in My sight; for by doing so, you have made My forgiveness of non-effect. For that which requires My forgiveness is the very same from which you must depart, lest your repentance become unrepentance, crucifying Me again and again in your heart. For repentance is more than the asking. It must come from a deep desire to be set free in My love, followed by a sincere unyielding commitment to make our love perfect through obedience… The shedding of the skin of this world, the crucifying of your old man with his sinful ways; the putting on of the new man who is renewed in the knowledge of The Holy One, conforming to the image of Him who created him, says The Lord.
      And yet you ask of My servant, Timothy, this question of service, though you have yet to depart from your sin. (Yes, Timothy brings all things before Me, that he may not judge anything of his own accord, lest pride ensnare him and the hand of God abase him.)
      Therefore for your sake, and for the sake of all those who shall come to read these words, I shall give answer: My son, there are none righteous in all the world; no, not one. All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Behold, even Timothy, a man who I have given to hear My voice, does continually stumble. Yet when he is weak, he becomes strong, for My grace is sufficient for him and My strength is made perfect in his weakness. Thus he does not cease from coming to Me, laying himself at My feet in repentance, taking full responsibility for his actions, remorseful over those things which yet cause him to stumble, being fully tempted as all men. For I have not yet delivered men out of temptation, nor has the power of the evil one been rendered of non-effect, for this time is not yet. Yet from the power of sin, which is death, I have surely delivered you!… If you so choose to receive of Me fully, if you so choose to embrace Me as I truly am, if you so choose to remain in My love[1].
      Therefore, you know the answer to your question already, for all is written in the Scriptures of Truth… Can one, who does that which is an abomination in the eyes of God, serve Me? He may not. For no one who actively engages in or passively practices homosexuality shall inherit the Kingdom of God; behold, even all who voice their agreement shall be left outside the gate, says The Lord. Yet if one comes to Me and asks of Me forgiveness, even a continual washing in My own blood, he shall surely have it… Even if he comes to Me seven times, or seventy times seven times, he shall be forgiven. For I forgive all those who come to Me in sincerity and in truth, and draw near to those of a contrite heart, delivering those of a humble spirit.

      Beloved, by this then shall our love be made perfect…

You shall abstain from that which is not lawful,
And make every effort to depart from that
Which is an abomination in the eyes of God…
 
You must strive to be completely separate from that life,
Presenting your body as a living sacrifice to The Lord…

Blameless.

      For that which is unnatural is universally known, though the men and women of this world deny it. And that which is against God shall be purged by fire; even all that offends shall be destroyed and come to a swift end. Therefore, My son, take up your cross and follow Me as I am, and not as you or the churches of men would have Me be.
      Yet remember this: Whoever loves their mother, father, sister, brother, child or close friend, more than Me, is not worthy of Me. Thus he who does not take up his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me, as it is written. For he who holds onto his life in this world will lose it, yet he who gives up his life for My sake will find it. And whoever gives one of these little ones a cup of cold water in My name, because he is My disciple, assuredly I say to you, he shall by no means lose his reward.
      So then, do I call you to serve Me? I do; if you are willing to serve Me in all righteousness, without compromise. Do I then require that you be perfect? No. For there are none perfect, save The Holy One of Israel. Rather, I require that you strive to be unto Me a servant of pure heart, of pure intention, a disciple who loves Me with all his heart, understanding and strength, and also loves his neighbor as himself. For it is written and remains standing, that one can not be crowned unless they strive lawfully.
      My son, I am the fulfillment of The Law, the very goal at which the Torah aims. Thus all those who embrace Me are freed from the curse of The Law, but by no means are they now free to forsake The Law. Rather, let The Law be written in your heart, for now you are under grace. And by the power of My own Spirit are you now able to keep The Law. For Love has saved you… Beloved, come to Me and receive! Let Me wash you and make you clean, that you may now arise and walk in My ways, that you may be My son and I your Father. For I correct and discipline all those I love, lest the devil gain advantage over them.
      Therefore, again I say to you, come to Me, for I am your Healer. Serve Me as I am, and not as you would have Me be. Yet turn away unto strange flesh and I shall also turn away from you, leaving you in the midst of the earth, until you are truly ready to give up your life for My sake. My son, come out from among them, and I shall give you a cool drink of water, for you are yet thirsty. Hear My words and understand, for My words are life for those who walk in them; and if you walk in them, then you are really My disciple.

      Therefore, this is The Blessing of God:

I died, and behold, I am risen, that you might be free!
And you are free, if you would only be fully converted in your heart!…

Beloved, I died, and the power of sin also died!
I rose from the dead, and My beloved were established in Life!
All sins wiped away, not just those sins gone before or those of today,
But all sins, even those of tomorrow!…

Therefore, do not revive your sins; let them die!
And become completely new in Me!
 

And oh how blessed are those who overcome, for My name’s sake…
      

To these is there a place of great honor,
Where they shall be placed upon the mantle
Of The Lord, in His house, forever.

      True, but neither to genuine Christians accept the lifestyle. It is still perversion. We must love them, but we must also refuse to accept their lifestyle.

      • Terri Hoopingarner

        I agree that Christians should refuse to accept their lifestyle. It is sad that being against a homosexual lifestyle has come to mean you are homophobic. Just cause I do not agree with the lifestyle does NOT mean I am homophobic.

  • Robert VanAken

    I agree many Christians do not believe in the inherent Word of G-d. They believe it is out dated and should come in line with what they perceive to be the mainstream of it’s current culture their society norms such as same sex relations

    Regarding the video ~ respond:

    “Are you a Jew living under the law? Are you a member of a people called out to live as a spiritual example of the purity of the call of God? Some of your questions can be given a short answer, however the studies to the rest of question will take more than a bullet point answer. Expecting a theological discussion with research notes on the spot to explain answers to each of your questions is equivalent to expecting an attorney to give a full legal brief with case notes on an extensive research, which obviously may take more than a sentence.

    To give you a full answer and the reasons behind your questions I am happy to invited a meeting in the future at your convenience to go over all these questions point by point for which I have had time to prepare.”

      Epilogue: A New and Terrible Thing
      12/5/11 From The Lord, Our God and Savior – The Word of The Lord Spoken to Timothy, For All Those Who Have Ears to Hear
      Thus says The Lord: Behold, I have come down! Yes, I AM HERE! I have come down to dwell in My chosen and to deliver My elect, even every lamb! For I am The Lord! And My jealousy has come to the full!…
      I shall no more tolerate all this injustice and murder! All these abominations! All this wickedness! I shall no more endure all this persecution!… Even by My own people, who pollute My name day and night, without ceasing! For I shall stand upon the earth in My fierce anger, and REPAY! And I shall defend My elect and protect the weak and the needy! And the cause of the widow shall be fulfilled in her deliverance! For I am Lord and God! THE DELIVERER!… Yes, I AM HE!

      Behold! LOOK! For The Lord your God shall do a new thing!…

      A new and terrible thing! 
      An astonishment!
      A great wonder!…

      The likes of which this world has never seen!

      The faces of the multitudes shall pale! The hearts of many shall fail them for fear! Many shall collapse, gathering blackness, on account of that which is coming to pass before their eyes!… The mighty and awesome power of The Lord your God put on open display! For who can stand against His coming?! Who will not fall down at the sound of His voice?!

      Thus says The Lord: It is time!… My hand shall reach down, lo it shall plunge into the earth! It shall pass through every tomb and every mausoleum, through every grave! Behold, My hand shall pass through the dust and sift the sands of the desert! Even unto the depths of the sea My hand shall grab hold, and the whole earth shall give up its dead!… Every child of God, every servant of The Most High, every sheep beloved of The Shepherd. 
      Then shall I turn to the multitudes and pass through! Behold, I shall pass through and steal them away!… Babes from every womb, children from every corner, and My elect from every nation! The world shall be left utterly desolate and in tears! Heavy sorrows shall overtake every land! Behold, an outcry shall rise up, such as has never been heard!… Much weeping and lamentation, anger and many raised fists, a great gnashing of teeth! Yes, among every tribe, people and nation, a great noise shall be heard! For three full days it shall not subside, and for three full nights it shall not lessen.

      Thus shall their first reward be given, 
      For they have shown themselves fully worthy…

      Then shall they know, I AM THE LORD!

      And thus shall the great and terrible day of The Lord begin!…

      Behold! The wrath of The Lamb!

  • I agree with 98% of what you said until you got yo the, “Look in the Mirror”. I have been asked to leave to Churches since moving to NC because of my King James Bible stance, and my concern of no bible teaching and lack of the so called Pastors knowledge of the Bible. So I think it may have been better said, “most of you should look in the mirror.” Bro. Jim Pro. 3:5-6 Last night on Fox Megan Kelly had a segment on this topic and no one she had on knew how Our Lords feels about this subject. One said the Jesus loves gays, Blacks, Whites, no matter …. that’s the same lie when someone says, “God hates the sin but loves the sinner.” NO, God hates both….

    • Well, I said it like that because even the minority of bible believers like you and I still need to be reminded from time to time that the war is real, the battle is hot, and time is short…to the FIGHT! Thanks for writing 🙂

      God loves all people no matter what or he would not have sent his son to die on the cross for ALL sinners. Granted some are beyond redemption but if it was true he hated all sinners he would hate all Christians. Christians are still sinners we are just forgiven through grace by faith. Thank you Lord Jesus for what you went through even though we were not worthy and still are not.

        John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” God is love. Satan is the god of hate. God is doing all He can to save every human being before this world’s probation ends. Becareful not to confuse God’s “wrath” with hate.

    So sad that some otherwise kind people are looking, hopefully, towards the full acceptance of this gay marriage stuff, not realizing that they are actually hurrying along their ultimate judgment, by our LORD. They are so deceived. They really believe, some of them, that they are being loving. It breaks my heart.

      Luke 17
      26 And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.

      28 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
      29 But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.

      30 Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.

      Genesis 19
      4 But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of Sodom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter:
      5 And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them.
      6 And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him,
      7 And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly.

      9 And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door.

  • TOM C

    I have said it before and I will say it again. Not all Christians are Christian.

    You may call yourself Christian. You may have grown up in a Christian Church. You may be a member or an officer of a Christian church. You may be a Presbyter, Preacher, or Pastor of a Christian Church. You may know your Bible from cover to cover. But NONE of these make you Christian!

    What makes you a Christian is what Jesus told Nicodemus in John 3:3 (NIV) ” Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.”

    Unless you are born again, the Bible will make no sense to you.

    It is sad that the truth is so simple and yet so complex. So simple that a child can understand it and yet so complex that the wisest cannot explain it.

  • Imagine that – “twisting truth”: To the writing of books, there is no end!
    They will not overthrow the truth of God, no matter how hard they try!!!

    As long as we keep accepting denominations like united Church of Christ, Presbyterian church USA and the Episcopal Church as biblical churches, then we will be confused as to why they do these things. The Episcopal church is the American version of the Anglican church, started by Henry the 8th in rejection of the Catholics, and he made himself ruler of that church, and subsequently, each king/queen has been the head of that church. They are not a church. Presbys are one of Rome’s daughters, and church of Christ believes in baptismal regeneration and loss of salvation, so they are out, also. Not to say some within may not be saved, but if so, they need to get out. Watch for the new Pope to take up the mantle of LGBT supporter.

    GOD , JESUS &THE HOLY SPIRIT showed us exactly how sodumites are dealt with ! Sodom & Gomorrah!

    • Amen Bro. God has no love for those who reject His word and His truth. Lev. 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” Notice Lev. 18… 6-6-6- and the word “Abomination” The Anti-Christ is going to be gay….a faggot from head to toe. Their lifestyle is an abomination to God. But not to the Roman Catholic Church, Bill O Reilly, fox News, Megan Kelly, Shepperd Smith, all fornicating liberals, Obama, democrats, and even some republicans. I’ll say this again, God hates the sinner as well as the sin. For those of you who say other wise, give us the scripture support for that. Bro. Jim Pro. 3:5-6

      • SammiD

        Jim, you said “I’ll say this again, God hates the sinner as well as the sin. For those of you who say other wise, give us the scripture support for that.”

        Romans 5:8 – But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

        I was a sinner. I did things that only God knew, and yet, He loved me enough to send His only Son, that Spotless Lamb of God, to die for me!! Me, a filthy sinner! He knew me, knew that I was a sinner, yet He loved me anyway! How amazing is that!
        Does God love the sinners of today any less? Are todays sins worse than they were 25 years ago when I was born again, or almost 2000 years ago when He gave His life for us on that cross? I believe God hates what they are doing but He has not turned His back on them. He still offers Salvation thru His Son, Jesus Christ. Just my opinion 🙂

        • Jean-Paul

          Well said SammiD. I read this yesterday in devotion. Like to edify to all fellow brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus 🙂

          our breath will not be always in us. We must shortly breathe our last, and therefore, while our breath is in us, we must never breathe wickedness and deceit, nor allow ourselves to say or do any thing which will make against us when our breath shall depart. The breath in us is called the spirit of God, because he breathed it into us; and this is another reason why we must not speak wickedness. It is God that gives us life and breath, and therefore, while we have breath, we must praise him. ~~~ year 1710 Matthew Henry commentary on Job XXVII

  • To understand and explain the error of homosexuality it is necessary to understand the true purpose for God creating man. Otherwise we will never recognize that the sin God condemns is not merely the homosexual’s sexual perversion; but rather their willful misrepresentation of God as men who were created in His image. Likewise the lesbian’s error is their failure, as women, to represent the church’s uncompromising love for God made evident by their lack of affection and submission to the male counterpart.

    Romans chapter 1 exposes the foundation of the homosexual’s of error in sin.

    “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men [the male part of the species], who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, BECAUSE WHAT MAY BE KNOWN OF GOD IS [is to] MANIFEST IN THEM [the male], for God has shown it to [or through] them. For the invisible things of Him [God] from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made [the male and female roles], even [God and] His eternal power and Godhead [are made apparent], so that they [male and female] are without excuse: because that, when they knew God, they glorified Him not as God, neither were they thankful [for the glorious life God gave them and called them to], but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing themselves to be wise they became fools, and CHANGED THE GLORY OF THE INCORRUPTIBLE GOD into an image made like corruptible man and birds and four-footed beasts and creeping things. Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies between themselves, who changed the TRUTH OF GOD INTO A LIE, AND WORSHIPED AND SERVED THE CREATURE MORE THAN THE CREATOR, who is blessed forever. Amen,” (Romans 1:18-25).

    The “truth of God” that male homosexuality changed into a lie is how “God so loved the world” (John 3:16). God loves the world so much He gave His only Son to die for its redemption. Yet when men reject their natural passion for women and turn to other men to satisfy their God given desire for “oneness through intimacy,” their actions present to the world the lie that “God has no affection for humanity! God only loves Himself!” This is blasphemy!!!

    There’s no greater love than a man laying his life down for his friends, and Jesus laid down His life on the cross for all humanity; homosexual, straight, black, white, and green!! There is no greater love anywhere than God’s love or His commitment to man!!!

    “For this cause God gave them [men] up unto vile passions: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature. And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another; men with men working that which is unseemly [anal intercourse], and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet,” (Romans 1:26,27).

    Again, the ultimate error of the homosexual is not their profane method of sexual intercourse, for that is only a “fruit” of their error. The “root” is their failure to correctly represent God as a lover of the weaker vessel. By Royal design, man’s role in life is to be that of affectionate concern for woman–loving her, cherishing her, protecting and providing for her. The woman in turn, is to return her love through willful and uncompromising service to the man, even as unto the Lord, thus adorning “the doctrine of God our Savior in all things.”
    Homosexuals fail in all these areas.

    Consider again Romans 1:20: “For the invisible things… are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are…” Now please bear with me, I’m not taking this scripture out of context, rather I’m using the principle of the scripture for understanding. The principle is this; a man (male) when in a right relationship with God will be a righteous representation of God in the earth. This will be evident by his effectiveness as both a covering and instructor of righteousness to his wife and children. The woman, in turn, will happily love her husband with submissive service. The children, if properly instructed in righteousness from their youth, will not depart from it when they grow old (Proverbs 22:6).

    However, when men who are to be the image and glory of God, reject God as their covering and forsake the natural affection they should have toward God–then “even their women” will “change the natural use into that which is against nature.” Although bearing like fruit of error, the female’s error is merely evidence of the man’s. And yet, though the man’s error may blasphemously misrepresent God, the lesbian’s life-style sadly proclaims the truth about humanity, they have become lovers of their own selves instead of lovers of God! Sadly, the lesbian in the midst of her sin accurately represent today’s mass of humanity.

  • mike watchinski

    To those of you who are truly saved and know it, hold the KJV as the true word of God, and will not fall for the heresy of those who say that there are errors in the word of God.

    Do you realize that we are an ever increasing (decreasing) minority? I have seen preachers that I respected turn from the KJV and give approval to other versions only to open the door of their “ministry” to worldly methods to keep the numbers up in their churches. I have seen the zeal for the word of God in the lives of believers wane as they fall for the lie of “easier to understand” versions. Congregations have lost the blessing of reading in unison the word of God and now can only say that “The only thing we know for sure is that we know nothing for sure.”

    “Thou shalt not follow a multitude to do evil.”
    (Exodus 23:2)

      • Kim Wilde

        • Rick

      • TOM C

        Which version is the INSPIRED VERSION? .The answer is the original texts in the original language. Everything else is a copy. HOWEVER, this does not in any way lessen the VERACITY of God’s HOLY WORD!

          • Pamela

            Rick the original manuscripts were written in Koine or classical Greek, Hebrew, and some Aramaic, one of the Semitic languages from the beginning of human history. The KJV is a translation from copies of these original manuscripts. Moses was a Jew so he wrote in Hebrew and Paul was Saul of Tarsus a Greek in the Roman Empire.

        • Pamela

          Tom you are correct.

    • Pamela

      Mike the KJV is a translation of the original texts that had a number of copies, it wasn’t inspired by God to the translators. Are you saying that any other translation of the Bible is heresy?

  • Kerry C. McKee

    We all know that everything going on is separating lukewarm Christians from the true believers. The true believers are the ones that will die for the word of God as we are servants of Christ (Galatians 1:1’0 “Ffor do I persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men I should not be the servant of Christ”. We are clearly told that if we live to please man and not God and are trying to persuade God instead of man then we can’t be a servant of God. We also know what we’re told what to do about those that say they are Christians but deny God’s power and his word (2 Timothy 3:5) “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof; from such turn away”. Anyone who knows my testimony knows that I overcame the sinful homosexual lifestyle and now live for Christ. There are people who accuse me of being a hypocrite but we all know that Jesus himself said that God was capable of all things (Matthew 19:26) “But Jesus beheld them and said unto them, With men this is impossible ; but with God all things are possible”. So to say you’re a Christian or a believer in God but deny that he can indeed allow someone to overcome something such as homosexuality then you are calling Jesus himself a liar. Why is it that people are willing to go that far to please man? Some say that you can be Christian and be able to see the bible as irrelevant for today, but they’d be wrong (Romans 10:17) “So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God” (Hebrews 10:38) “Now the just shall live by faith : but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him”. People think that we don’t need the bible or God and we can still get to Heaven, they think just by being a good person you can get to Heaven but then they aren’t going by God’s word then either (Ephesians 2:8) “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of ourselves; It is the gift of God”. So by accepting the homosexual sin you are not only denying the word of God, that God can do all things, you are saying that you can get to Heaven on your own that you don’t need God or Jesus, you’re taking for granted everything including Jesus’ sacrifice. If you still consider yourself a Christian after reading this and still accept this sin, then you are lying to yourself to please the world around you because you don’t want to be hated and you are a hypocrite. You say I’m judging you. God is judging you, it’s his word, I live by it. I am the instrument he uses to spread his word. So, you can either believe God’s word and start living as such and be a true believer or you can continue accepting and condoning sin and God will see you as nothing more than those committing them. Whatever you choose it is your choice but any real Christian, any true believer would know what they’re to do. Love you and God bless!

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the spiritually-dead Evangelical churches of America finally accepts the LGBT agenda. They have compromised on everything else, including the Gospel, so why not this agenda…There is no Great Awakening in sight (like we had in the 18th, 19th and 20th Centuries) and this time America is going to annihilated by the Russians (Ezekiel 39:6, Jeremiah 25:32-33)…Up to half of our population may die in this nuclear holocaust (Revelation 6:8).

    Contrary to what all those who want to believe that philosophy, and commentaries are the true way to find out the truth of the bible, there is no other kind of “Christianity”! Biblical “Christianity” is the ONLY way to salvation. Those who are relying on their pastor or some other philosopher, preacher, commentary will be horribly mistaken! Ephesians 2:8 tells us we are “saved by grace through faith”. Jesus said He will send the “Comforter” which is the HOLY GHOST and He will lead us into all truth. Paul wrote in romans that faith cometh by hearing the word of GOD NOT philosophers, pastors preachers and commentaries!

    Jude 1:23 “Save others by snatching them out of the fire; to others show mercy with fear hating even the garment stained by the flesh.”

    Just imagine how horrible things will really be when the Holy Spirit is no longer in this world. God bless.

    Rick, since I believe that you aren’t really looking for answers but to be another one of satans helpers I’ll answer your first question. If you are really searching for answers than we can continue but I won’t waste my time if you are satanic minded. Read Dr. Reagans 1611 King James Bible. You can easily look this up on the Internet.

    • Rick

      Kim, I own an electronic photo copy of the Original 1611 KJV and it contains more books than the later revisions. A point I am making is that “KJV Only´s”, for one group, and other KJVers who claim it is the TRUE Scriptures are NOT getting the entire ´Bible´ and are being fed errors. Most adherers do NOT bother to STUDY for themselves, they just take what they are spoon fed as the truth. Does not the N.C. teach that WE, the individual, are to do our own studies to determine the veracity of others? Did not the Bereans, who raved about Rabbi Shauls (Apostle Paul) a JEW who was a Pharisee and very learned, did they not say ´great stuff, Rabbi, now we are going home to study the Scriptures for ourselves to see if what you say is true! How many do that today Kim? Do You?
      The only TRUE Scriptures are lost to us. The Dead Sea Scrolls have substantiated the majority of the Old Covenant so we have written proof of the accuracy of the O.C. The N.C. with its many revisions is another story.
      Shalom, Rick – 2 Tim. 2:15

    • Rick

      You wrote, “Rick, since I believe that you aren’t really looking for answers but to >be another one of satans helpers…<" be careful Kim, when you point how many fingers point back at you?
      To cast slurs is to practice Lashon Hara, (evil speaking) as it is a form of gossip which is Scripturally a No-No. One never knows if one is addressing one of G-ds Anointed so we need to be careful about our choice of statements so that we are not one of Satan's "FALSE ACCUSERS". Many just accept what is written with out knowing whether or not the author has any credibility in the area of their comment.
      Shalom, Rick – "To err is human, to forgive is Divine."

    Rick, you prove your intentions when you skip the answer I give to you and jump right into again the second question. satan knows the BIBLE more than any man. The missing books that you point out are missing due to a very easy answer. Go to http://www.chick.com ask your questions there if necessary but I doubt you are looking for answers.

      Kim it´s sad to see that you rely on the “theological expertise” of comic books to substantiate your views. I think you are correct, I do not see any advantage for further discussion with you under these circumstances. Thanks for the Blessing. Shalom anyhow, Rick. “Judge not lest ye be judged” – the judgment you use towards others shall be the standard by which YOU will be judged…. Mt. 7:1-3 KJV

    Rick, you prove yourself all to well when you don’t bother to read Dr. Reagans paper of those of you who speak against GODS WORD! I’ve also noticed that those employed by satan ALWAYS try to use the scripture verses that you’ve pointed out ! satan never was original .

  • Rick,

    Are you a demonstration of that Kim? Even though you MIGHT have read Reagans paper why do you do what he decries? The Scriptures Alone contain all the teaching I need. While reading other writings may be interesting they are just thoughts of man declaring what THEY think Scripture says.

  • Truth Seeker

    Rick, I don’t know why the Bible states that the devil was a murderer from the beginning. This is not true. Ezekiel 28:46 says that the dragon was perfect in his ways until iniquity was found in him…The Bible also states in Revelation 13:8 that there was a plan of salvation in place from the foundation of the world. This is also untrue…Everything was perfect until the devil sinned and dragged the “first man” (not Adam) down with him. God had to make the planets “without form and void of life” and turn the light off (jeremiah 4:23 and Genesis 1:2)…I still think that the rebellion caught the Lord by surprise and He had no plan of redemption in place for the first man…Then, a long time later, after He renovated the earth and made our Adam and Eve, He had a plan of redemption in place for future use…This renovated world must be the foundation that John is referring to in Revelation 13:8.

  • truth-seeker….

    What Book of the bible came first? This may seem like a stupid question but it will help answer your so called error found in the word of God. Satan rebelled against God before Adam and Eve were created, perhaps that may help you out. Bro.Jim Pro. 3:5=6

  • Rick,

    GARY you wrote, “John 3:16: “For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” God is love. Satan is the god of hate. God is doing all He can to save every human being before this world’s probation ends. Becareful not to confuse God’s “wrath” with hate.
