These Christian denominations, the Catholics for example, ARE NOT true believers of Jesus Christ and they have no salvation, as they would like to think.
I had a brother that was a homosexual, he died of AIDS and went blind. It was a long, slow, horrible death. About ten years prior to his dying he accepted Jesus Christ and stopped the wicked act.
I know he’ll go to heaven because God no longer saw him as a reprobate, but one of His children.
I’m not a homosexual, but, in my opinion, I was much worse. My brother had been generous and kind to people, while I on the other had disrespected people and treated them like trash. I used them, I hurt them and laughed about it.
In 1983, I realized that Jesus Christ is real and nobody to cross, but did I care? Sure I cared, but not enough to change my ways. I liked being mean and manipulating people. I didn’t like being poor so I took what I could from whomever.
In 2007, I accepted Jesus Christ into my heart and He gave me a new one. Sometimes I look back at my past and I am flabbergasted at the horrid person I had once been.
I’m still poor, and I still have boring days, frustrating days, but I have not had one sad day since July 29, 2007. No hardship matters to me because I have Jesus Christ in heart and soul and someday I will meet Him in person and live with him for eternity.
The type of person I had been or a murderer or a homosexual or whatever are all the same to God, He does not see them different. They are all reprobates.
No evil act we do is more severe than any other, unless that act is in defiance of Jesus Christ. Those that stand against Jesus will pay a much heavier price then those that just ignore the laws of God:
“And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes.
But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more” (Lk 12:47-48).
So tomorrow we will look at one of the most, if not the most, evil person on earth. The one possibly doing more damage to God’s children then even the Catholics is…
True Faith Evidenced by Words
1 My brethren, be not many masters, knowing that we shall receive the greater condemnation.
2 For in many things we offend all. If any man offend not in word, the same is a perfect man, and able also to bridle the whole body.
“Perfect man” – since the tongue is so difficult to control, anyone who could control it perfectly could control himself in all other areas of life as well.
3 Behold, we put bits in the horses’ mouths, that they may obey us; and we turn about their whole body.
4 Behold also the ships, which though they be so great, and are driven of fierce winds, yet are they turned about with a very small helm, whithersoever the governor listeth.
5 Even so the tongue is a little member, and boasteth great things. Behold, how great a matter a little fire kindleth!
6 And the tongue is a fire, a world of iniquity: so is the tongue among our members, that it defileth the whole body, and setteth on fire the course of nature; and it is set on fire of hell.
“World of iniquity” – like the world in its fallenness.
“Set on fire of hell” – a figurative way of saying that the source of the tongue’s evil is the devil.
7 For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:
8 But the tongue can no man tame; it is an unruly evil, full of deadly poison.
9 Therewith bless we God, even the Father; and therewith curse we men, which are made after the similitude of God.
“Similitude of God: – since man has been made like God (Gen 1:26-27), to curse man is like cursing God.
10 Out of the same mouth proceedeth blessing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought not so to be.
11 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter?
12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? Either a vine, figs? So can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? Let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
These elements of a true teacher are expressed by three words in this verse: “knowledge,” “meekness,” and “shew.”
“Shew out of a good conversation” – show by his good conduct in life. We cannot teach well what we cannot practice in our own life.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
“Confusion” – “God is not the author of confusion but of peace” (1 Cor 14:33).
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
Homosexuality vs. God’s Holiness
The Result of Rebellion Against God is Damnation.
Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire (Jude 1:7).
Today Jesus’ Church is faced with a crisis it never had to face before in its 2000 year history.
The crisis comes from homosexuality being presented as acceptable behavior by factions within the Church.
Especially the Catholic priests raping their altar boys.
Rev. Robert L. Brennan rapes 11 year old altar boy.
Rev Charles Engelhardt and Bernard Shero sexually assault a 10 year old boy.
Church officials allowed Porter to supervise altar boys in a New Bedford church – despite the allegations that the priest abused children – and that he raped at least one of the altar boys.
The Rev. James Porter abused some 100 young boys and girls at parishes in North Attleborough, New Bedford and Fall River in the 1960s. Was sentenced to 18 to 20 years in prison in 1993 for sexually abusing 28 children in the Fall River Diocese.
Certain denominations such as the Episcopalian are promoting homosexual pastors and marriage.
Bold homosexual ministers, actually living with a partner, stand in the pulpit promoting this lifestyle.
On June 15, 2008, two Anglican Church, male priests “married” in an official church wedding ceremony.
On June 26, 2003, homosexuality was defined by the Supreme Court of the United States as a Constitutional right of privacy.
This is ironic because this the highest court of the land, and these judges broke the law:
“If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them” (Lev 20:13).
There is no judge above God and those that participate or allow anything against God will burn in hell for eternity:
“But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death” (Rev 21:8).
This has opened the flood gates to advance the homosexual agenda. Soon after this, starting in San Francisco and then spreading to many other states, homosexuals were “married” in civil ceremonies.
In November 2003, the Supreme Court of Massachusetts demanded that the state legislature enact homosexual marriage legislation.
On May 17, 2004, homosexual marriage became legal in this state.
On May 15, 2008, the California State Supreme Court ruled that homosexuals were entitled to marry.
On June 15, 2008, homosexuals began to legally marry. The floods gates are now wide open throughout America to advance the homosexual agenda.
Pastors within mainline denominations are “marrying” homosexuals. These denominations seem to lack the resolve to stand up against this trend.
The Episcopalian Church among others is leading the way in promoting homosexuality.
On August 6, 2003, the Episcopalian Church voted to install Gene Robinson as bishop of New Hampshire . Robinson is a man who divorced his wife with whom he had two children and now lives in an open homosexual relationship.
He remained a minister and then was voted a bishop. This is only one of many examples of how denominations are either passively or outright promoting homosexuality by not disciplining ministers who are advancing the homosexual agenda.
The “church” has become a leader of the homosexual agenda.
There are now movements both within civil government and religious circles to sanction homosexual marriages. This never happened before in our history. This is unchartered waters for America .
It is not unchartered waters according to the Bible because it states what happens to a nation that promotes sodomy.
Those who stand against this act are now being branded as narrow minded religious bigots who are against diversity. There is now a social tidal wave going on to promote, encourage and protect the homosexual act.
Leading the way in this movement are both politicians and clergy who claim to believe the Bible.
In the very first chapter of the Bible, God ordains the union of a man and woman and the family unit. He ordained the marriage between a man and a woman.
This was the plan of God from the very beginning: one man and one woman and a family.
This plan of God has not changed and no law of man including the Supreme Court of the United States can alter God’s family unit.
“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply…” (Gen 1:26-28).
“Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh” (Gens 2:24).
In the New Testament, the Bible states that marriage is honorable in all things and that those who defile it by adultery and whoremongering will come under the direct judgment of God.
The Greek word translated whoremongering is the same word translated fornication. This word is very important in defining what homosexuality is and will be developed shortly.
Remember, marriage as defined by the Bible is a union between one man and one woman. You must always keep in mind how God defines marriage: one man and one woman.
“Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge” (Heb 13:4).
Can Homosexuals Go To Heaven?
The Scriptures indicate that when a person engages in homosexuality it is an indication they are under God’s judgment. The judgment is described as, “God gave them up.”
This happens when a person is in deep rebellion against God. This rebellion manifests itself in homosexuality which would then cause God to give them over to this act. They can be sealed into homosexuality.
A homosexual can repent and trust Jesus Christ as Savior just like any other sinner; however, those that are in deep rebellion against God and not just caught in the power of this sin are given over to it.
There is a huge difference between being under the power of sin and being given over to it in judgment by God. A homosexual that is not a reprobate is one that knows the act is wrong and is under condemnation.
In other words, being a homosexual – being attracted to the same sex – is not a sin, but participating in the homosexual act is. It defies God and those that choose to enjoy the sexual act over God He will “give them up,” i.e., sentence them to Hell for eternity.
Supporting the homosexual agenda shows a deep rebellion against God and classifies that person as a reprobate. To God there is no difference between an active homosexual and a heterosexual who condones this act.
They both are linked to the reprobate mind. This means the American society is loaded with reprobates. They are clergy, politicians, judges and college professors. They are news analysts and Hollywood stars.
“Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them” (Rom 1:32).
The Greek word translated pleasure means: think well of in common, i.e. assent to, feel gratified with.
God Gave Them Over To A Reprobate Mind
The Bible devotes an entire chapter to the process of becoming a reprobate. The book of Romans, the first chapter gives the process by which a person develops a reprobate mind. The first step is the failure to acknowledge God and being unthankful:
“Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened” (Rom 1:21).
The devil himself is a homosexual. He is everything that is against God and you can’t hang with God and Satan, it’s like water and oil.
“Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils” (1 Cor 10:21).
Sodom and Gomorrah
The Book of Jude ties together homosexuality with the word fornication. The homosexuality of Sodom and Gomorrah was identified as fornication. The Bible warns that the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah was an example to those who would practice this same fornication.
“Even as Sodom and Gomorrah, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire” (Jude 7).
The Greek word for fornication is ekporneuo, and it means to be utterly unchaste. It is the Greek word from which English derives the word pornography.
The Bible then defines fornication as any sexual activity outside of marriage. It is an inclusive term. Remember, marriage is between one man and one woman.
The definition of fornication would then include: heterosexual relations before marriage, homosexual relations at any time, incest, bestiality, prostitution and pornography.
All sex outside of marriage is considered fornication by God.
God is the true Law of the Land!
Homosexuality and the Constitution
How does homosexuality deserve a promotion as a constitutional right?
Why isn’t prostitution or bestiality or adultery or drunkenness or drugs usage a constitutional right?
God does not and never did condone any of them.
In our day, homosexuality has been plucked from the list of iniquity as being a vile affection. It now has been decreed by many factions of civil government as being a right.
In many Christian denominations, it has been declared a loving relationship that is acceptable and blessed by God. God never changed His mind about fornication!
