LGBTQs Do NOT Love God

It is bad enough that we have to endure stories like the following

http://www.oregonlive.com/portland-thorns/2017/02/abby_wambach_announces_engagem.html

Soccer legend Abby Wambach announces engagement to Christian blogger Glennon Doyle Melton

but to call oneself a Christian is going too far. Not only are the women not Christian,for being Christlike is to be holy not practicing sin, they do not love God with all of their hearts, souls and minds. How do we know this? They have refused to give up their sin for God.Do not say you love God and Jesus and still keep practicing your sin. It is easy to say Jesus and God love me because they do and that knowledge makes one feel good, but that love does not mean one gets to keep being sinful. Love is a two-way street and to show love for both God and Jesus one must give up all their sins, accept God’s identification of what is or isn’t sin, and follow the Bible correctly. Jesus said, ‘if you love me, keep my commandments’ and no commandment of Jesus allows people to continue in any sin.Nor do they allow people to flaunt their alternative lifestyle and identify as a follower of Christ. If you remain in sin, you are not following Christ for he called people to repentance and to be born again.

Sorry LGBTQ people you are not Christian if you continue to practice your sin of homosexuality

 

Quotes From Billy Graham

The following quotes have been taken from his World Aflame book.

pg. 47-8 — And as Carl Henry says: In his desire to control the universe, man repeatedly puts himself in God’s place but the idea of God’s Son as a substitute in man’s place he dismisses as incredible nonsense

pg. 48 — From many universities come these ideas: First, man is only an animal; Second, existence is a chemical accident; Third, the struggle for survival has made man what he is; Fourth, morality and standards of conduct are derived only from a sociological context; Fifth, man lives in and for this world only and any further thought is unscientific.

pg. 51 — In a bull session at Harvard, a student observed: Does it not seem strange that millions should be spent trying to create life or to discover its origin? Is not our number one problem to care for the life we already have?

pg. 51 — Either man began nowhere and is looking for someplace to go or he began somewhere and has lost his way.

pg. 83 — There is a strong movement… to recast the Christian message in order to make it acceptable to modern man.

pg. 83 — Karl Barth…in a scathing denunciation of these demythologizers says… In trying to make Christianity plausible for skeptics they have succeeded only in making it meaningless.

pg. 88 — The inescapable implication of a counterfeit is that the real thing exists. No one ever counterfeited a seventy-five dollar bill. Every counterfeit bears witness to the reality of the currency it captures

pg. 127 — Ask the scientist and he cannot give an answer. I have asked a number of scientists questions concerning life after death an most of them say ‘we just do not know’.Science deals in formilas and test tubes. There is a spiritual world that science knows nothing about.

pg. 141 — At birth our sex is settled, the very frame of our body is already determined.

As to the second to last quote, all we can say is that scientists need to be evangelized not have their theories accepted. Science, especially secular science, does not know more than God. For the quotes from page 83, even today we have people trying to change the christian message to make it more attractive to unbelievers. IF you change God’s message then you are not bringing God’s message to the lost. Finally, the last quote reminds us that transgender issues are not a 21st century problem ut has existed for a long, long time. The gender one was born as is the gender they are, anything else is a product of deception.

 

Birthday Break +

After this post we are going to take a few days to celebrate a birthday. We will return later in the week.

But here are a couple of short points before we go:

#1. http://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/street-preacher-accused-of-hate-crime-after-sharing-scripture-with-gay-teen.html

Liberals and unbelievers are the ones who want to keep their fellow-man locked in their sins.It is not a hate crime to try to free someone from their sinful imprisonment.

#2. http://www.christianheadlines.com/columnists/guest-commentary/free-pastors-from-the-johnson-amendment.html

Sorry but we like the Johnson Amendment as we do not believe pastors should be telling anyone how to or who to vote for. Pastors need to lead their people to doing politics God’s way not trying to influence an election.

#3. http://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/uk-parents-win-millions-of-dollars-in-wrongful-birth-lawsuit.html  and  http://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/planned-parenthood-caught-offering-incentives-for-abortion.html

And you wonder why God destroyed the world with a global flood? And why he is going to destroy the world when this life is over?  God hates sin and it is not going to make it into heaven. Live holy lives so the world will see a difference and want what God has to offer.

#4. http://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/elderly-patients-at-risk-of-forced-starvation-in-oregon.html

The secular world does not care. The church needs to.

 

This Point Is Good

http://www.christianpost.com/news/liberals-who-preach-the-bible-on-refugees-why-not-homosexuality-173995/

But we conservative believers hardly have a monopoly on hypocrisy. To the contrary, the Bible-quoting hypocrisy of the liberal left is far more galling than our conservative Christian hypocrisy. We, for our part, truly believe the Bible to be God’s Word and seek to live by it (even though failingly so at times), whereas the liberal left often despises the authority of Scripture except for a few select passages that it misuses for its purposes.

This has come into glaring clarity in light of the president’s executive order concerning refugees. Suddenly, Hollywood elites and their liberal colleagues are quoting the same book that they openly mock, especially when it comes to moral and spiritual standards.

They can’t have it both ways.
But the hypocrisy has gotten worse after President Trump’s executive order putting a temporary halt on incoming refugees from seven Middle Eastern countries. These one-time Bible-mockers are now quoting the words of the Torah in the Old Testament — yes, those supposedly antiquated, misogynist, bigoted words — reminding us of Israel’s calling to care for the refugee and the foreigner in their midst.

More galling still is the liberal left’s quotation of Torah law pertaining to care for the refugee while ignoring the Torah’s strict moral code, which universally forbade homosexual practice and adultery under penalty of death.

And the next time conservative Christians do the same, don’t yell back at us, “Separation of church and state!”

But then who has ever accused the left of being honest when it comes to the Bible?

 

This Is Absurd!!

http://www.christianpost.com/news/sorry-mothers-its-pregnant-people-now-174100/

The British Medical Association has asked its 160,000 members who work in hospitals and general practice across that country not to call pregnant women “mothers” to show sensitivity toward transgender people, according to reports.

Pandering to those who choose to pervert and alter themselves has got to stop. The transgender is the abnormal person not the pregnant MOTHER. The transgender should be showing sensitivity to the pregnant women not the other way around. The transgender person is the usurper of right and wrong, the violator of what is normal, the one discontented with their birth gender so they must take pains to be sensitive to those who do everything right and accept their birth gender and identity.

God did not make transgendered people. Those ideas come from evil alone and are not biblically or divinely approved. The transgendered person is the one deceived not those who accept who they are, they are the ones who need counseling, correction and guided back to what is right about their lives NOT the person who accepts who they are and live as they are.

The secular world has gone insane in this issue and so have many church denominations and ‘christian’ individuals. God is not the one who needs correction in this matter. God is the one who is to be obeyed not told he needs to be sensitive to those who fall to the deception evil places in their lives.We do not support deception but bring people out of it so that they can live proper lives, hoping that they will repent of their sins and become believers in Jesus. At no time are we to say that transgenderism is normal, healthy or okay. It is none of those things.

But while transgenderism is wrong, sin and abnormal, we do not throw those people away and leave them for the unchurched world to minister to or meet their physical needs. We must still treat them as Jesus would want. When Jesus said ‘when you do it unto the least of these you do it unto me’ he did not leave out transgendered people from the group ‘the least of these’.

We can help them without compromising our faith and beliefs and without accepting their sin and abnormality. Jesus did it when he ate with the sinners.We need to minister to these people correctly not supporting their decisions but calling it what it is–something from evil and not from God. Transgendered people must repent of their sins, give up their transgendered identification and desires and be made new creatures through redemption in Christ. They are not Christians or part of the church if they do not follow the rules of God for salvation and redemption.They cannot be accepted as part of the family of God if they do not repent of all their sins, including transgenderism, and actually become a part of the kingdom of God.

God does not allow sin in his kingdom and we must not include anyone in God’s kingdom who has not truly been redeemed by Christ.Secular scientists, psychologists and other unbelieving social workers do not have the truth nor the inside track on this issue. They are as deceived as the transgendered person and do not have the truth about this issue.The church needs to take its lead from the Holy Spirit and go for the truth not the faulty theories of those in need of a savior and the truth.

The church and the believer cannot follow that absurd directive but must lead the secular world to what is truly right and wrong so the issue can be solved correctly. ‘Being sensitive’ to  these people is not the correct solution; making the people who are normal to change is not the correct solution to this issue; supporting evil and sin is not the correct solution to this issue. The correct solution is to identify the problem for what it is–sin– and then provide the correct spiritual answer to the problem.

Too many children are being trapped in sin because the church allows the secular world to lead in spiritual problems and that is just not right.

 

LGBTQ Rights

http://www.christianpost.com/news/trump-keeps-lgbt-protections-for-federal-workers-173909/

We have no problem if these supposed rights are the same for everyone but if they place a higher distinction or grant extra protection than what others enjoy then we cannot accept nor endorse such thinking. We believe that it is christian to help LGBTQ members to get work, find a home, feed them if they are hungry and give them financial aid when they are in need but none of those actions are designed nor are meant to support or accept or legitimize their choice to be abnormal, sinful and wrong.

It is wrong to be a LGBTQ person and nothing is going to change that status no matter what. God is the one who drew the line in the sand and no one has the authority to alter that line. it is up to the people of this world to choose to obey God. But if they don’t they must be ready to accept the consequences. No amount of conferring rights alters God’s standards of right and wrong, moral and immorality and good and evil. Rights do not trump God’s standards.

The LGBTQ community may get survivor benefits from social security or other benefits they seek from the world but those accomplishments do not alter the fact that they are still sinning, still disobeying God, still practicing an abomination and in danger of going to hell. This is as basic as it gets and saying things like this is not a hate crime but trying to open the eyes of those who think that unrepentant LGBTQ people are Christian and find favor with God.  They don’t. God loves them but that love does not allow the LGBTQ people to skip the criteria that one must repent of all their sins and be born again if they want to make it into heaven.

God does not accept sin into his kingdom for if he did that would not make paradise much of a paradise. The standard of sin comes from God as well and no one can change that so if a LGBTQ member or supporter says that LGBTQ practices and preferences are not sin then they are lying to everyone and not a friend to anyone.We must accept God’s declaration of what is or isn’t sin then abide by it so that we do not lose out on going to heaven.

One last thing, LGBTQ members are to receive God’s justice no matter which side of the infraction they are on, they are to receive God’s fairness and so on but such treatment again does not change their sinful lifestyle to a sinless and holy one.

 

Beth Moore+

The following link has several stories starting with Beth Moore

http://www.christianheadlines.com/contributors/scott-slayton/beth-moore-calls-young-christians-to-embrace-both-truth-and-love.html

so we will start with her and comment on some of the rest.

#1. Beth Moore

Beth Moore issued a warning to a gathering of 18 to 25-year-olds about what she believes will be a temptation their generation will face.

Speaking to the 55,000 students and young adults gathered at the Passion Conference in Atlanta, Moore said, “You will watch a generation of Christians – OF CHRISTIANS – set the Bible aside in an attempt to become more like Jesus. And stunningly it will sound completely plausible. This will be perhaps the cleverest of the devil’s schemes in your generation. Sacrificing TRUTH for LOVE’s sake. And you will rise or fall based upon whether you will sacrifice one for the other. Will you have the courage to live in the tension of both TRUTH & LOVE

While we like her words we would like a more specific definition from her on how she defines those two words. Love does not keep people locked in their sins and truth does not support altering one’ gender because the person does not accept the gender they were born as. So for now we like what she says but need more information. We also need more information on her as well as we know little about her.

#2. Paula White-

Last week the Presidential Inauguration Committee announced that Paula White, Senior Pastor of the New Destiny Christian Center in Apopka, Florida, would take part in the swearing-in ceremony of President-elect Donald Trump. Several prominent Christian leaders and writers took issue with White’s invitation because they are concerned about her theology receiving mainstream attention.

It is Trump’s inauguration so it is his call. People may not agree with it but they do not have the right to force a change. What we know of Ms. White we do not like her inclusion either but the best we can do is point out the truth to Mr. Trump and let him decide.

#3. Transgender

National Geographic recently unveiled the cover of the January 2017 issue, which will feature nine-year-old Avery Jackson on the cover. The issue focuses on the “Gender Revolution” and Avery graces the cover because she is a transgender girl. The cover includes a quote from Avery: “The best thing about being a girl is, now I don’t have to pretend to be a boy.”

If you are born a boy you are not pretending.  If you change your gender to a girl then you are pretending to be a girl. The same for those girls who want to be a boy. They are girls and they are not pretending but if they alter themselves to a male appearance then they are pretending to be a boy. There can be no gender revolution for God did not provide methods to alter one’s gender and make one’s gender a choice. You are whom you are born as.

http://www.christianheadlines.com/blog/evangelical-leaders-refuse-to-compromise-on-lgbt-rights.html

LGBT Rights

Some evangelicals and other Christian leaders are refusing to compromise on issues of LGBT rights and religious freedom.

Christianity Today reports that leaders from nearly 90 evangelicals seminaries, publications, ministries, and churches, as well as Catholic and Orthodox leaders, have signed a statement making clear their firm stance regarding LGBT rights.

The Christian leaders said in the statement that they do not support any measures which would provide legal protection to members of the LGBT community.

We would agree as long as the opposition does not make it legal to keep LGBT people from housing, food, employment and other basics of life. We do not think it is right to punish those who speak against LGBT preferences or call them sin nor do we think it is right to force churches and religious organization to include practicing LGBT people in their leadership, etc.

You cannot force people to violate their rights just because the LGBT community is excluded. Spoiling people is not the right thing to do.
