If you believe Homosexuality is wrong… Does that make you a Bigot?
Have you seen the video with the older white gentleman waiting tables at a restaurant who refuses to serve a black man based on his own religious beliefs?
The disguised message here lies in replacing the Black Man with a Gay Person.
The creator of the video is trying to equate being Black with being Gay.
And so, supposedly demonstrate that being offended by homosexuality is somehow equal to being racist.
This type of mind manipulation and deception can easily confuse the uninitiated but for those who are grounded in the Word of God and have an accurate understanding of the principles of the Kingdom of God… not so much.
There is one fundamental truth that will expose this as a weak ineffectual argument designed to befuddle the ignorant and attempt to legitimize homosexuality…
You can read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation and find nowhere that being black offends God.
But read the same Bible and you will find multiple places both in the Old and New Testaments where God categorically states that homosexuality is an offence to Him and must be NOT be practiced nor accepted under penalty of judgement!
This single truth makes that entire video a load of bilge, worthy of no consideration whatsoever!
Mature Christians who have actually read their Bibles and understand the principles of God’s kingdom recognize the errors and lies perpetrated by this video and categorically reject it and it’s deceptive message.
We will not be deceived nor bullied into accepting that which clearly offends God.
Homosexuality is wrong and will never be legitimized nor accepted by God and mature Bible-believing Christians.
Love the Sinner – Hate the Sin
Having said this I believe it is equally important to clearly state that being homosexual does NOT make someone a monster or worthy of hate.
On the contrary, this same God who states that homosexuality is a sin is the same God who became a Man and died for homosexuals and for the sin of homosexuality.
He did this so that those who are plagued by the spirit of homosexuality and deceived into accepting this philosophy and lifestyle as their own can be delivered and saved.
Saved first from a life devoid of true intimacy with God and second, from an eternity outside of His loving fellowship.
We mature bible-believing Christians say to you homosexuals – WE LOVE YOU – With all the love of God poured into our hearts by Jesus Christ.
We accept you as fellow Human Beings, worthy of LOVE and RESPECT!
We accept YOU… but we do not and never will accept an ideology and practice which we know is ultimately detrimental to you… because we truly love you.
We love you enough to tell you the truth, even if that truth offends you.
We prefer to risk offending you now and have you live in eternity with God than not offend you now but lose you forever!
Message to Christians
To you, Born Again Christians who say you believe the Bible but accept homosexuality as right.
Please consider this:
1) You are NOT doing anyone a favor by sugar-coating the truth or just plain denying it.
You are helping the enemy to keep your loved ones in bondage and damning their souls to a Christless grave.
On their Judgment Day they will spit in your face as a Hypocrite and a Liar who never truly cared about them and loved them with GOD’S love.
Yes, you may love them with Familial love – that of a parent to a child or Brotherly love – absolutely!
Nobody can deny that, but that kind of love will NOT see them delivered and saved!
That type of love can only go so far… and no more!
They need the kind of love that will risk offending them to see them set free and able to live a life that truly pleases God!
2) At the Judgement Seat of Christ, you will have to face the same God who died the most horrible death to rescue these people from the bondage of homosexuality.
You will have to answer to Him for your duplicity in saying you believed the truth but lived a lie.
Christian, it is really a selfish thing to be more concerned with maintaining the satus quo of your relationship than risking offence by telling your gay friend or family member the truth.
May God give us, Christians the Spirit of Wisdom and Revelation in the knowledge of Christ and the courage to always speak the truth.
May God grant grace and repentance to those suffering under the burden of the sin of homosexuality and truly set them free!
