Yes, Jesus would bake a cake for a gay person
Redstate,com ^ | 02/21/2014 | Erick Erickson

Posted on 02/22/2014 10:19:15 AM PST by aimhigh

Jesus Christ would absolutely bake a cake for a gay person. He’d bake a cake for a straight person. He’d bake a cake for a girl, a boy, a person who isn’t sure what they are, a black person, a white person — Jesus would bake that cake if it, in some way large or small, drew that person closer to Him. . . . .

The disagreement comes on one issue only — should a Christian provide goods and services to a gay wedding. That’s it. We’re not talking about serving a meal at a restaurant. We’re not talking about baking a cake for a birthday party. We’re talking about a wedding, which millions of Christians view as a sacrament of the faith and other, mostly Protestant Christians, view as a relationship ordained by God to reflect a holy relationship. . .

You might think Jesus would bake a cake for a gay wedding. I think you are wrong because I don’t Christ would collaborate in sin.

This is a carefully crafted article. The author subtly shifts from baking a cake for a gay person, to baking a cake for a gay marriage. If you miss that shift, you may get the wrong impression of the article.

Yeah, I’m sure Jesus would be right at home in the modern Democrat party.

Just like Reagan...

So, would it be discrimination if you don’t make a cake with a groom and two brides, or is polygamy still taboo?

Jesus would bake a cake to a Satanist wedding.

Jesus would bake a cake to a Pedophile .

Jesus would bake a cake to a Beastialist wedding.

Ya` think?

Or would he say, ‘ if they refuse to listen then kick the dust off your feet.. ‘ or, ‘ go and sin nom ore.’

Jesus would not serve anyone without turning them AWAY from sin.

“Go, and sin no more”

Seems to me, before Jesus granted forgiveness, repentance was required. Not to be confused with the Jimmy Carter school of forgiveness which was offered with no qualifications, without authority and even when unasked for.

Jesus bake a cake for an unrepentant gay person? Something tells me no. Baking cakes does not in and of itself draw people closer to God; take note of the many people who remained unrepentant after witnessing the miracle of loaves and fish, after all.

Would Jesus drive a car? Would he wear jeans? Would he vote for Romney or Obama? Would he support civil unions? What about a tax cut? Its all silly nonsense. Jesus Christ isn’t baking cakes for anyone. We need to stop ascribing modern actions to Christ or any other historical figure for that matter.

Jesus would not use government to FORCE a man to bake a cake for someone else or else risk losing his business.

Amazing the twisted logic of what Jesus would or wouldn't do.

....You know its not like he didn't write a very extensive book detailing every thing he did say, so we wouldn't have to wonder.

Marrige is a type and symbol of the believers becoming the bride of Christ, joined forever. But I suspect the world knows this and is why they are so eager to destroy its meaning...

If the deaths of Ananias and Sapphira is an indication of how God’s Holy Spirit deals with a sinful nature which tries to masquerade, then these fools claiming God as Jesus would coddle their degeneracy are in deep trouble.

Because an assumption has been made about what it’s trying to say.

What it is actually saying is that it is okay to furnish good things to your enemy, but not bad things. Bad things are things that are purposed to further his sin.

This concurs with a freedom of speech standpoint. If you want a blank cake, here Mr. and Mr. Gay you may have it. If you want me to inscribe it to your unholy union, sorry Mr. and Mr. Gay, I refuse.

Really? Is that before or after Jesus says....

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.

Jesus would and does love the gay person.

But on the topic of a gay marriage, they might want to ask the money changers about how He handles defiling His House.

The better question is, “Would Jesus force someone to bake a cake for a gay person?”

The finest of sawdust?

Would you live in a house built by a baker?

OK, this is silly. The actual bakers who were having problems in the well publicized incidents, were ones who refused to inscribe. They were perfectly willing to be don’t ask, don’t tell about some generic cake. But the homos who created this test case pressed their point to where it was beyond a doubt what they wanted. Here’s where if America still is sane about 1st amendment freedoms, it will affirm them. No, we will not require anybody, contrary to their faith, to cooperate with this stated purpose.

Jesus just might have baked a cake for someone who was gay, but I got a feeling he would also tell then to go and sin, no more.

As to baking a cake to celebrate a gay wedding. Nope wouldn't happen. That would be like accepting the sin.

And the bible itself refutes the point that it contains all details of what God says. John says that he thinks that the world wouldn’t contain enough books to hold this information.

So much knee jerking.

Yes, Jesus would bake a cake for money lenders in the temple. Right after he went Old Testament on them.

I don’t profess to know if Jesus would bake a cake for a gay wedding or not, but I find it unlikely he would force someone else to do it.

And indeed the whole saga up to the cross was still OLD testament context. Jesus had to DIE to bring the New Testament.

It’s a waste of time arguing whether or not Jesus Christ would bake a cake for a homosexual “wedding”. Since He doesn’t condone sin of any kind, He would never celebrate it in any way.

But from what we know, He absolutely did eat with sinners and explained why. Some didn’t like it, and some wouldn’t like it today.

About all we can assume is that He would bake a cake for a hungry sinner, and He would take the opportunity to minister to their soul.

And if He asked why and they said it was for one of these evil celebrations, He’d say no... but knowing Jesus and how He could effortlessly riff from what was evil to what was good, He might well talk about loving one’s brother righteously.

And really, they need to learn how to love their brother. If they did, they’d stop buggering and start other things that were very, very good.

Liar. It's "should a Christian be forced to provide goods and services to a gay wedding or be penalized by the government and law enforcement."

There are more levels to the current debate. But it has also raised a question in more liberal halls of Christendom, which is exactly as stated. Watch who you call a liar before you understand the intended context.

“You might think Jesus would bake a cake for a gay wedding. I think you are wrong because I don’t [believe] Christ would collaborate in sin.”

I guess if this is unclear then there is no point in further discussing it with you.

I do not think that you can speculate on what Jesus Christ would do or not do. Maybe you would bake a cake, but that has little to do with Jesus Christ.

You are a sinner. I am a sinner. Gays are sinners. Jesus wants you to repent from your sinning ways. He wants me to repent from my sinning ways. He wants gays to repent from their sinning ways.

It is that simple.
