A recent article by the Huffington Post is doing its part to undermine the truth of Scripture. Entitled, “The Gender You Associate to God May Indicate How You Feel About Gay Marriage.”
The truth is that we have no right to assign a gender to God. He is God and the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was equally God and equally man. If one wrongly assumes that God may be a woman to pacify the liberal and LGBT communities, then we have to wonder how long it will be before somebody rewrites the Bible to show that Jesus was actually a woman. You can take every page of Scripture and rewrite it to satisfy the lusts of the world, but it will never become truth. EVER!
Read the differences between what leaders within major world religions have to say versus what God says.
Desmond Tutu, Anglican Archbishop Emeritus of South Africa – “I would not worship a God who is homophobic and that is how deeply I feel about this. I would refuse to go to a homophobic heaven. No, I would say sorry, I mean I would much rather go to the other place.”
Francis, Pope of the Roman Catholic Church – “Who am I to judge a gay person of goodwill who seeks the Lord? You can’t marginalize these people.”
Laura Geller, Jewish Rabbi – “Now I can invoke the power vested in me by the State of California and declare them married in accordance with the laws of the State of California and our Jewish faith. Now we are so much closer to the truth of their experience: a gay or lesbian Jewish wedding, like a Jewish heterosexual wedding, is a Jewish wedding pure and simple, the inheritance of every loving Jewish couple.”
Dalai Lama – Head Monk of Tibetan Buddhism – “If someone comes to me and asks whether it is okay or not, I will first ask if you have some religious vows to uphold. Then my next question is, What is your companion’s opinion? If you both agree, then I think I would say, if two males or two females voluntarily agree to have mutual satisfaction without further implication of harming others, then it is okay.”
Rev. Jesse Jackson – Religion of Civil Rights – Supports gay marriage and would perform a marriage of gay couples “if I was asked to.”
Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, Anglican Church – “I mean I know plenty of gay couples whose relationships are an example to plenty of other people and that’s something that’s very important, I’m not saying that gay relationships are in some way, you know that the love that there is less than the love there is between straight couples, that would be a completely absurd thing to say.”
Well, that should be enough to show the apostasy and the lack of Biblical truth within every one of these religions. Now, what does God say about LGBT issues. Here are a few thoughts from GotQuestions.org.
“Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Cor. 6:9-10).
“In summary, Romans 1:18-31 deals with the fact that God has innately made Himself known to humanity, but He has been rejected and replaced by other objects of worship. Because of this, God has delivered two judgments: one of homosexual behavior and another of an immoral mind, each of which demonstrates His ‘abandonment’ wrath toward humanity’s rebellion.”
The truth is that ALL those who willfully remain in their sin stand condemned before God. It does not matter what kind of sin – homosexuality, lying, murder, lesbianism, cheating, pedophilia, hating, idolatry, bestiality. What matters is how far each person is from a holy, righteous God. When God saves the sinner, He CHANGES them and makes them a brand new creation in Christ. If you are a true believer, you will NOT go back with pleasure to your sin. To say God saved you to continue in your sin is to grossly misunderstand the Scriptures.
Final Score = God Wins, Religion Fails.

This issue is just another signpost indicating that the Lords return is near.Will there be faith when He returns,I believe there will , but as this article demonstrates, many who believe they are saved have in fact denied Christ through the populist and humanist philosophies that have over run the Church.On the one hand , this is distressing , but on the other, I am comforted by the fact that God is in control and that justice will prevail.

Compromise shows up in many places and ways. Apostasy likewise. Those who deny God as Father as just as likely to run into the moral pit of apostasy as those who claim homosex as a gift from God.
….not everyone who calls Me Lord will enter into heaven but he who does the will of my Father Matt 7:11 (paraphrase) It is the Fathers will that we hear His son and obey His commandment to “live by every word from God. Gods laws proceed from His moral character. God does not and cannot change. Therefore neither can His moral laws.
Lev. 18 according to Gods moral character, our only standard, God lists numerous sexual sins as being an abomination, including homosexuality. In Lev. 18: 24 – 19:1 God inserts a universal warning to all peoples for all time. The Canaanites were not his people they were not under the covenant nor under the Law of Moses. Yet the land vomited them out for defiling the land with all of these abominations. It continues, if you commit these abomination the land will vomit you out also. That is sufficient without supporting NT scripture.
One has to ask why the rebellious lift this particular abomination up for acceptance but not its companion abominations.
As with all of this growing apostasy the roots of it all is ” hath God said?”
Thank you for sharing the truth. This compromise with evil is rearing its ugly head in the SBC where Mohler and Moore both adopted homosexual language to describe this perverted behavior, rather than biblically address this sin when they met with the LGBT crowd. Now Moore went to the Vatican’s conference on Marriage and Family Relationships as a speaker. God bless you:)
Eliza, thank you for stopping by. It is our desire to share the truth and to do so in love. Sadly, it can be too easy to become caustic and vitriolic, but that is not showing the love of Christ.
By the way, we are concerned about Mohler. Have been for awhile now. We pray it is not the declining paths others have followed.
