When seeking the truth about being a gay Christian one has to diligently look into God’s Word for the answer because …
Quite often things aren’t always what they seem yet the truth is always exactly what it is. I believe I am speaking with the Spirit of God when I say …
Satan spins the truth into a lie and the lie into perceived truth. Satan is extremely persuasive and while God’s Word is very direct and clear on the subject there are those who have swallowed Satan’s lie and perceive it as truth. In fact …
They present a very compelling case. So compelling that even pastors (some supposedly anti-gay) have fallen for the lie. They twist scripture to fit their mold and again they present finely crafted arguments that sound reasonable to the naive.’
I want you to understand one important thing.
I am one who can also craft an extremely compelling presentation.
I earned my living for years in some of the most hard-core selling professions on earth. Imagine if you will having the skill to change (within 90 minutes) what we called “gift mooches” into buyers who would happily give you $3,000 – $20,000 for one to four weeks of fun by investing in a vacation condo.
I did that for years!
The point is this: I know a finely crafted presentation when I see or hear one. Now …
I have no intention of crafting a presentation or trying to “sell” you anything.
I’m simply going to give you what I believe the Spirit of God has burdened my heart to share which could be termed as “food for thought.”
You will have to determine the course of action that is best for you.
So with that in mind can anyone really be involved in the gay lifestyle and be a gay Christian?
Think Sodom and Gomorrah
Do you recall what happened to those two cities and WHY it happened?
The Lord, Almighty God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because they were full of depraved, perverted, fornicators (homosexuals) which God finds to be detestable, an abomination. Now …
There are gays, along with other misguided liberals, who dispute the fact that Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed because of homosexual perversion. In fact …
You can find compelling information (presentation in written form) online which point out that the word homosexual wasn’t even used in the Bible. And frankly I can’t say, with absolute surety, whether that is true or false because I don’t speak, read, or write the languages of the old or new testaments. I have to depend upon those who do to translate original scripture into English and sometimes there simply are no Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek words that precisely fit the English language. So …
Let us read what God says through Paul in a letter to the Corinthians:
“Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
The words men who have sex with men translate two Greek words that refer to the passive and active participants in homosexual acts. In other words whether or not there is an actual Greek word for homosexual isn’t the issue. The issue is that men who have sex with other men will not see the Kingdom of God. But just for giggles and grins let’s look at another translation from the Jewish Bible:
“Don’t you know that unrighteous people will have no share in the Kingdom of God? Don’t delude yourselves — people who engage in sex before marriage, who worship idols, who engage in sex after marriage with someone other than their spouse, who engage in active or passive homosexuality, who steal, who are greedy, who get drunk, who assail people with contemptuous language, who rob — none of them will share in the Kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
As you can plainly read the word “homosexuality” appears in the above Jewish translation.
Yet many gays and “liberal Christians” use the verses found in Ezekiel 16:49-50 to drive home their perversion of God’s Word. God says, through Ezekiel …
“Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. They were haughty and did detestable things before me. Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.” Ezekiel 16:49-50
Gays, and other liberal, misguided Christians, are quick to point out the part of that verse “She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy” as the real reason for the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah while ...
They completely IGNORE the part of that scripture which states: “They were haughty and did detestable things before me” which clearly agrees with the main reason of accountability and the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.
What were those detestable things done before God?
For the answer let’s again LOOK at God’s Word.
The Book of Leviticus is the book known to relate the laws of God to His people the Jews. Since Jesus came to earth as a man and died for our sins many believe that the law was abolished and we are no longer under the law but only under grace. But Jesus said that He came NOT to abolish the law but to fulfill it! So …
What EXACTLY does God say about homosexuality the word that supposedly doesn’t exist in Bible terminology?
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.” Leviticus 18:22
“If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.” Leviticus 20:13
So what EXACTLY does the word abomination mean?
There are those who pervert God’s Word by saying Leviticus 18:22 has been taken out of context and used to “clobber” homosexuals into submission. That the verse actually pertains to pagan idol worship and both men and women having sex before pagan idols. Though it may be possible that perverted idol worshpers did in fact have sex before pagan idols Leviticus 18:22 does NOT allude to that scenario. The true context is this …
Leviticus 18 (the whole chapter) pertains to laws regarding immorality. There is only one verse that is even remotely out of context. That verse is Leviticus 18:21 which many use to pervert God’s word saying that verse 22 follows and pertains to sex in the temple of idols. Yet Leviticus 18:21 has to do with child sacrifice which is very immoral indeed. So …
In truth Leviticus 18:22 is in total context with the whole chapter which pertains to immorality, mostly sexual immorality. Those who preach otherwise are simply “spinning” the Word of God to fit their agenda.
Gay Christian Or Perverted Sinner Bound For Hell?
Could it really be possible for a gay to also be Christian?
I’m not a pastor, Bible scholar, prophet or an absolute genius. I’m just a forgiven, born-again Jesus follower. It isn’t my place to pass judgement. Almighty God is the one whom you need to kneel before and ask the question. So …
If you happen to be gay and read this post, instead of flaming me with comments that contain stupid politically correct, liberal, cliché type vomit such as calling me a “hater,” “intolerant,” or accusing me of “hate speech” or saying something derogatory about my mother I suggest you take it up with Almighty God. But know this in advance …
God Almighty is NOT politically correct.
God is God.
God is “one way,” His way.
If His way doesn’t fit your way you have the problem NOT God.
Yet trust me …
I know what it’s like to have questions.
I have dealt with many tough questions that I have put before God.
I have even had the balls to argue with an all-knowing and omnipotent Almighty God. In each case I lost and had to back down, humble myself and ask forgiveness.
God is God, THE Alpha and Omega, THE First and Last, THE Beginning and THE End, The One Who Was, Is and Is to Come. And God does not change. He doesn’t change for me and He won’t change for you. So …
The question is still this …
Would Almighty God recognize or allow a gay to become a gay Christian?
I find it a remote possibility because let me point out again how much Almighty God detests homosexuality (male with male, female with female which are termed unnatural desire). Scroll up and read the previous verses and more below.
“Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a punishment of eternal fire.” Jude 1:7
Satan, the father of lies, and the gay community would like us to believe that gays are truly accepted by Almighty God, are in fact Christians, saved by the precious blood of Jesus and so also heirs to the Throne of Grace. But …
If you are gay and think you are saved because you said a prayer BUT have NOT repented (turned from your perverted ways) and still practice fornication with the same-sex you may want to rethink your position with God Almighty and Jesus Christ because the Word of God says this:
“No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.” 1 John 3:6-10
I’m just a simple country boy but from what scripture (the Bible) says I have to shout loudly that scripture simply doesn’t seem to agree with the assessment of many gays and politically correct pastors of apathetic, misguided church congregations.
Sodom and Gomorrah were NOT destroyed for simply being arrogant, overfed and unconcerned or because they did not help the poor and needy. Granted Almighty God was obviously not pleased with that type of behavior or He wouldn’t have made a point to mention it but the REAL, underlying, corrupt and perverted reason was immorality, perversion and homosexuality. The verse most gays and liberal gay supporters like to forget is this one …
“Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom—both young and old—surrounded the house. They called to Lot, “Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex* with them.” Genesis 19:4
* Some translations say “know them.” To “know him, her, them” is the Biblical terminology for to have sex.
There is no one, with a lick of brains, who could read that verse and simply say God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah solely because they were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned! “Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them” is not up for interpretation.
It is crystal clear!
The perverted homosexuals wanted to have sex with ANGELS!
Those perverted men of Sodom didn’t know the men were angels. They simply saw men they hadn’t yet had sex with and so wanted to partake of fresh, new meat.
If you are gay and reading this post in all humility I ask that you seriously reconsider your position with God Almighty because He is VERY clear about how He feels about immorality, especially the perversion of His divine plan. His explanation for homosexuality can be found in Romans 1:20-27 which states:
“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, 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. Professing 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 animals and creeping things.
Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 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.” Romans 1:20-27
Again the above verses will only be interpreted by those who do not like the truth and seek to pervert scripture in order to justify and promote their own perverted agenda.
I Was Born Gay It Is Genetic!
Most gays have now been brainwashed into believing they were mutated at birth. The born to be gay view of life.
And according to scripture that in fact may be true or at least a possible reality because again in Romans 1:20-27 God explains unnatural perversion.
And even though God forgives sins He may NOT release the sinner from future ramifications for the rebellion. For example:
“The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.” Numbers 14:18
So I am NOT totally discounting that gays are not born gay because …
Being gay may in fact be the judgement of God and His punishment bestowed upon the children of the sinner from a previous generation.
“It isn’t my fault. I was born gay” is no excuse or absolution.
In fact it (being gay) could even signify a predestined eternal damnation.
“For those whom He foreknew, He also predestined to become conformed to the image of His Son, so that He would be the firstborn among many brethren; and these whom He predestined, He also called; and these whom He called, He also justified; and these whom He justified, He also glorified.” Romans 8:29-30
“All those the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never drive away. For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me. And this is the will of him who sent me, that I shall lose none of all those he has given me, but raise them up at the last day.” John 6:37-39
“When he was alone, the Twelve and the others around him asked him about the parables. He told them, “The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables so that, they may be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing but never understanding; otherwise they might turn and be forgiven!” Mark 4:10-12
These verses clearly state that God does predetermine who comes to the Cross of Christ and the Blood of Jesus to be saved. The last verse Mark 4:10-12 actually states that God doesn’t want certain people to even come to the cross of Christ for forgiveness. Isn’t that a shocker statement!
Can You Be A Gay Christian?
I have good news! I believe God’s Word allows you to be a gay Christian under one condition. You must repent. And that may be unacceptable to the majority of gays, especially those who think (believe the spin and Satan’s lie) that being a gay Christian, who practices gay sex is OK with God as long as you are in a committed gay relationship such as gay marriage.
Gay sex is NOT OK with God.
There is no such thing as gay marriage in God’s plan.
And gay sex is an abomination to God (remember Leviticus 18:22). End of story. BUT …
IF you are willing to repent, confess your sin and totally abstain from the gay lifestyle I can find no reason in the Word of God why you can not be gay and be a Christian, a Jesus follower. ALL sin except one is able to be forgiven by God if the sinner is truly repentant. In the case of gays this means NO gay sex in or outside of any gay relationship.
Whether you are tempted or not is not the issue.
EVERYONE is tempted.
Jesus was tempted.
Women and men, whether straight or gay are and will continue to be tempted by Satan and his minions.
EVERYONE has to deal with sexual lust.
I may be a straight man but if I told you I am NOT tempted by the looks, smell and sight of an erotically beautiful woman I’d be lying through my teeth! Temptation and the ACT of sin are two different things.
Temptation is NOT sin.
Yet thoughts can be sin and actions can definitely be sin.
There is nothing in God’s word to prevent you from becoming a gay Christian. If you are in a gay relationship currently and/or having gay sex you are not Christian, you are not a Jesus follower. You have been duped. However …
You can certainly change with the help of Almighty God. You can certainly accept Christ as your personal savior and become a saved Jesus follower but you would have to completely repent, confess, ask forgiveness, submit your life to Christ and leave EVERY facit of the gay lifestyle behind. You’d have to live a life totally devoted to Jesus Christ.
No one knows better than me the saving grace, loving kindness and mercy of God. The love of Jesus, even when I was an angry prodigal, was always with me. He never left or abandoned me.
I know what God’s love can do.
I have seen His glory.
My wish, hope and prayer is that if you are reading this and you aren’t right with God Almighty that you will get right with Him through His Son Jesus, today. It is a matter of life or death (hell). I pray you choose life. 🙂
