A Righteous Blog Pimp Zot. Yes, Really.
Mod supplied link ^ | July 28, 2014 | Leigh Patrick Sullivan

Posted on 07/28/2014 10:53:27 AM PDT by Leigh Patrick Sullivan

Making controversial statements is nothing new for me. Neither is the reaction that usually follows.

But perhaps no other issue causes as much discussion, debate, and condemnation from others than when I present my position on the issue of homosexuality.

As a known Christian, I have been told that I MUST think a certain way and that I MUST believe a certain way regarding not only people who are gay, but regarding their entire lifestyle as well.

Liberals pick and choose from the Bible much as they do the Constitution. There are probably hundreds of verses condemning homosexuality, many of them in the New Testament.

Based on the title and the excerpt; I’m inclined to believe Leigh here is a Religious LGBT supporter.

So I’m IBTZ. Yes, really.

Yeah, based on the title it appears to be an article based on their own heavy handed generalizations about Christians condemning those Christians for making heavy handed generalizations...

I would find the irony funny if the cost to society was not so high.

Do you agree that the Bible condemns homosexual behavior? or are you someone who can find some way around the explicit prohibition to excuse it in some way? How are practicing homosexuals any different than a practicing thief, wife/husband abuser, child molester? all continue in sin, should their behaviors not be condemned as sinful?

Christ didn’t judge. How could I?

John 8:11 She said, “No one, Lord.” And Jesus said, “Neither do I condemn you; go, and from now on sin no more.”]] ..

Sin no more, not continue to sin and parade your abomination with pride.

Throwing people into confusion about scripture is the act of the evil one.

2 Corinthians 11:14 And no wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

“Christ didn’t judge”? What about all that stuff he said to the Pharisees, calling them hypocrites and a brood of vipers? I think he judged the money-lenders in the temple, too.

I think your post misses the key point. While there are “Christians” who do seem to hate homosexuals, most Christian do not hate homosexuals, any more than they hate drug addicts, adulterers, thieves, etc. What they DO hate is the attempt by society in general (and by liberal “Christians” in particular) to somehow define homosexuality in such a way as to make it not only accepted by society, but to make it appear compatible with Christianity.

The Bible is very clear in both the Old and New Testaments that sexual activity outside of the bounds of marriage between a man and a woman is sinful. Homosexuality, adultery, fornication, bestiality - all are condemned as sinful. If we fail to warn people about that, and instead try to tell them that God will somehow ignore that sin, we become complicit in sending them to Hell.

As Christians, the most loving thing we can do is be like Christ - don’t shun sinners, but be unshakable in our stand for the message of the Gospel, calling ALL sinners to repentance. Just because a homosexual is a wonderful person, or a relative of yours, doesn’t mean that God will somehow overlook their sinful lifestyle and save them despite the fact that their whole life revolves around proclaiming their sin. If we fail to warn sinners (including homosexuals) of the judgment to come and fail to tell them of the salvation that is available in Christ just because we don’t want to seem like we are “judging” them, then we don’t truly love them as Christ loves them.

_________________________________________________

Indeed. Leigh was quite clear from the title and breif excerpt that he was here at FR promoting queerness. But I give too much benefit to doubt, so I clicked the blogpimp’s link. Sure enough - he is supporting faggotry.

_____________________________________________________

Making controversial statements is nothing new for me. Neither is the reaction that usually follows.

But perhaps no other issue causes as much discussion, debate, and condemnation from others than when I present my position on the issue of homosexuality.

As a known Christian, I have been told that I MUST think a certain way and that I MUST believe a certain way regarding not only people who are gay, but regarding their entire lifestyle as well.

Now I realize the standard position people of faith take when the issue of LGBT folks comes up: ‘love the sinner, hate the sin’. And, from a theological point of view, that seems fair and acceptable. We are all sinful, of course. We all have the opportunity to be redeemed.

Countless times I have heard Christians trip all over themselves explaining how they aren’t judging the person, how they have ‘no problem’ with gay people, etc. Then many follow up later by verbally discriminating against those very same people.

We have to be careful here – what might appear as discrimination often times is not intended to be such whatsoever. Biblical quotes must be placed in context, and there are some very direct words pertaining to the issue.

My own take has been born out of many years as both a Christian and as a supporter of the Gay community.

My personal faith, as is the case for most people who walk with the Lord, has been a winding road full of glory and difficulties. I have had moments of great strength as well as times so problematic I was forced to reassess my beliefs.

My experience (as a straight man) with the gay community is quite extensive. From being introduced to the Calgary scene a few decades ago through a close family member who is gay, through to the present where I know many in the Calgary and Edmonton communities – and have discovered more gay family members – I have never thought of anyone in the gay community as being on their way to burn in Hell.

So therein lies the problem. Here I am, a self-professed believer in Jesus Christ who also believes that homosexuals should be treated no differently than anyone else. I happen to lack the sense of acceptable discrimination and compulsion to condemn these people that I have seen emanate from so many other followers of God.

As a live-and-let-live libertarian by nature, I have never seen it as my place or responsibility to call out gays on any grounds, religious or otherwise. If what they are is wrong and unacceptable in the eyes of the Lord, then that is between the gay person and the Lord.

I have nothing to do with it, I have no say in it, and put directly, it is none of my damn business just as my relationship with the Lord is none of anyone else’s damn business.

The way I see it, when Christ walked the Earth He could have spent his time hanging with Kings and other members of the upper-society of the time. He didn’t. Instead, He spent his short time in this world with what we would describe today as ‘everyday people’.

Christ didn’t judge. How could I?

It is interesting to note the reaction I received a few months ago.

A friend of mine from the Edmonton LGBT community was murdered. Vigils and various acts of remembrance followed, some of which I attended. A few from the gay community made note of my attendance, and remarked that Jimmy would have loved that I was there.

Many who I stood and paid respect with knew I was straight and knew of my religious beliefs. Never – not once – was I made to feel uncomfortable or out of place.

By contrast, I did hear from a few fellow Christians who questioned why I would attend. One even took the opportunity to question ‘the strength of your faith’ simply because I look upon gays and lesbians as humans, not as abominations.

I wonder what Christ’s response to that would be?

I’m guessing very similar to mine.

"A Religious LGBT Supporter"

Well, that's the problem. People are inherently "religious". That covers atheists, marxists, Gaia-worshipers, satan worshipers, etc. Men are "religious".

You write that you are a "known Christian". Great - as long as God knows you are a follower of Christ as LORD and Saviour -- and you seek to Obey Him, and to be obedient to His Commandments - wonderful. I presume the rest of the article noted how you love the LGBT sinners and are doing your utmost to help them break the chains of this particular deadly, and pernicious, sinful behaviour.

Really

“You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? Therefore I am sending you prophets and sages and teachers. Some of them you will kill and crucify; others you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town. And so upon you will come all the righteous blood that has been shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Berekiah, whom you murdered between the temple and the altar. Truly I tell you, all this will come on this generation.

Can we please dispense with the cuddly teddy bear Jesus?

Only a moron would condemn you for going to anyone’s funeral, regardless of their lifestyle. On another note, if you really spent a lot of time in the “scene” as you call it, you should know better than most that the activities they practice are vile, some vile beyond belief. Or do you think God approves of men penetrating another man’s butt, rampant promiscuity even among “committed” couples, rimming, fisting, felching, S&M, lusting after adolescent boys and does not want them to repent? Jesus was crystal clear about what marriage is, and it’s not a relationship between same sex partners. I don’t condemn anyone to hell, that’s God’s job, but I don’t celebrate perversion.

This is blog pimping, and there isn’t really a good excuse for it, but that aside, you aren’t being discerning in your understanding of the many problems with homosexuality. If something hurts a person physically, mentally, socially, and/or spiritually, then it is sin.
There is no doubt that homosexuality does that. God has revealed that homosexuality is sin, but observation also shows it to be deadly, harmful behavior.

Christianity is about the grace of God offered to those who when wrong admit and confess their sin and receive forgiveness for it. Those who try to attain God’s favorable judgment by adhering to some ‘code of ethics’ are doomed to both failure and separation from God. It’s only in forgiveness that we have any hope.

So, to attempt to explain away the harm done by homosexuality is thinking at the level of fantasy. It is also an appeal to living by a ‘code’, and with this code one pretends that a harmful behavior isn’t harmful.

“What I’m doing is just fine.” exclaims the homosexual. The facts, along with God, say otherwise. It’s like arguing that alcoholism is just fine, that no one gets hurt. But they do. The homosexual does. Others do. The relationship with God is absent due to dishonesty.

Lots of people can say all kinds of things about homosexuality, but they cannot say that it’s just another healthy, wholesome lifestyle and everyone should do it.
