An LGBT Defence Misses a Biblical Point

Living for Jesus isn’t easy. His moral standards are high. If we want to be His disciples, we must deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Him (Luke 9:23). For Christ, the cross literally meant giving up everything, even His own life. He denied His own will to do the will of the Father. God expects no less from us.

Although Christ’s moral demands in Scripture are difficult to follow, we’re still required to obey Him. Some people, however, want to change the demand. Instead of either submitting to or rejecting the Bible’s requirements, they want to change them. Advocates of pro-gay theology take this approach. Although Scripture clearly prohibits homosexual behaviour (Lev. 18:22, Rom. 1:26–27, 1 Cor. 6:9, etc.), they claim it only opposes abusive, exploitive, or coercive homosexual sex acts such as gang rape, master-slave sodomy, and pederasty. Homosexuals today don’t engage in such abusive acts. Their relationships are loving and consensual, we’re told. Therefore, the biblical prohibitions don’t apply to them.

Pro-gay theology advocates are missing the Bible’s point. It doesn’t matter why you might engage in a behaviour, only that you do. In other words, what Scripture prohibits is the behaviour of homosexual sex, regardless of why you engage in it. For example, it doesn’t matter if you’re curious about homosexuality and you just want to experiment. Homosexual sex in that case is prohibited. It doesn’t matter if you’re a man in a prison population and the only sexual outlet is another man. Scripture forbids homosexual sex in that case as well. It also doesn’t matter if you experience same-sex attraction, even if you were born that way. Homosexual sex is off limits in that case, too. What Scripture prohibits is homosexual sex, no matter your reason for engaging in it.

Consider another sexual sin, the sin of adultery. It doesn’t matter why you might find yourself in an adulterous relationship. It’s a sin no matter how you got in bed with someone who’s not your spouse. If you’re married to person A, person B is off limits. Person C, D, and E are also off limits. They’re off limits for any reason. It doesn’t even matter if you “discover” that they’re your soul mate. Sex with anyone other than person A is sexual sin. Period. That’s because according to the Genesis account of creation, when it comes to sex and marriage, it’s about one man with one woman becoming one flesh for one lifetime. Adultery and homosexuality violate that design.

Modern pro-gay theology advocates argue that the Bible knows nothing of loving, consensual homosexual relationships. Even if that’s true, it doesn’t matter. The Bible prohibits homosexual sex, regardless of why you might engage in it. It categorically prohibits same-sex relations of any type and for any reason.

Similar reasoning is used to justify being transgender. I argue that Scripture teaches that humans are supposed to identify with the gender that is consistent with their biology. If you’re biologically male, then you should identify as male. If you’re biologically female, then identify as female. Every time the Bible addresses people crossing gender boundaries, it speaks negatively of it.

For example, Deuteronomy 22:5 says, “A woman shall not wear man’s clothing, nor shall a man put on a woman’s clothing; for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.” The purpose of this prohibition is to maintain the distinction of the two genders established by God in the Genesis account of creation (e.g. Gen. 1:27 “…male and female He created them”).

To sidestep this moral demand, some claim that Deut. 22:5 is merely about cross-dressing and doesn’t address a person with a transgender identity. Again, this misses the point. The Bible isn’t saying that cross-dressing is prohibited unless you have a bona fide transgender identity. It’s not talking about your beliefs about gender or claimed identity. What it prohibits is a certain behaviour—trying to look like the sex that you’re not.

Even the context doesn’t help those who are attempting to reinterpret the biblical text. The verse before Deuteronomy 22:5 is about helping a neighbour's donkey and the verse after prohibits killing a mother bird. There’s no exception made for a transgender identity or any other motive. The verse simply entails an unqualified prohibition against trying to appear like someone of the opposite sex.

It’s important to recognise what people who are attempting to reinterpret the biblical text are trying to do. They want to sidestep the moral demands of Scripture which, let’s face it, is something every one of us is tempted to do to justify our sin. As Christ said, anyone who wants to be His disciple must deny himself and take up his cross. That means giving up our own will, and that’s not easy to do. God hasn’t left us, however, to muster up the strength on our own to do His will. He has given us the Holy Spirit to help us in our weakness. With His strength, we can deny ourselves and do the will of the Father.

Pin.pngThe PAGAN TRINITY EXPOSED - Indisputable FACTS the Trinity IS False!

In this video we expose the pagan Trinity. We answer the questions - Is the Trinity doctrine in the Bible? Why do Christians believe in a Trinity? We also give amazing facts and proof that the Trinity is a false doctrine. In exposing the Trinity lie one must be willing to take a clear and unbiased look at the Bible and Christian history. It's amazing how the facts regarding the pagan Trinity are so numerous and overwhelming. The history of the Church can be eye-opening. Why does the Roman Catholic church believe in a Trinity? Why do Protestants believe in a Trinity? Where did the false Trinity doctrine come from?

When Demons Are Real!

https://www.ucg.org/beyond-today/beyond-today-television-program/when-demons-are-real


Do you have a ministry or a business
Do you have a called of God ministry where your whole purpose is to "feed the sheep", and God supplies your needs, or do you have books, tapes, videos, etc. that you SELL for a "donation", or just outright SELL, and your buyers supply your needs?

There is nothing wrong with being in business and selling things. However, if you are a church or any kind of "ministry", you may want to check your motive for how you are conducting the work of the Lord.

Remember the money changers in the temple where JESUS turned over the tables and threw them out. They were selling things in the "CHURCH".
(God made it quite clear to us that we were not to charge for anything, that HE is our source.)
