Someone sent me a link to the following article, and though it claims to be “humorous”, humor is one of the mechanisms the gay lobby has used to indoctrinate our culture about homosexuality. Let’s take a look at each item on their list:
“9 – God knew we would be gay before we were born – and He made us anyway. — (Jeremiah 1:5; Isaiah 49:1; Romans 8:28-31). He let LGBT people write some of His favorite Gospel songs, direct some of His favorite choirs and called many to television and megachurch ministries.”
None of the above a scripture asserts anything related to eroticized same-sex attractions, or even a passing reference to homosexuality. This merely asserts something not in evidence, that someone can “be gay”. This is the very lie we fight against, the one the gay lobby has indoctrinated the culture to believe.
As for all the prominent “LGBT people”, everyone has sinned, so I suppose their next argument would be that God loves all sins. Argument is invalid because it reduces to absurdity.
“7 – He structured salvation such that every man who wants to be a Christian must learn to love a man named Jesus. — (John 14:23).”
Fallacy of equivocation: confuses eros for agape & phileo. We promote phileo and agape between men, we do not promote eros between men.
“6 – Jesus never said anything against homosexuality and He approved gender reassignment surgery. — (Matthew 19:12)”
This scripture does not discuss gender reassignment surgery, neither does it grant “approval” to such actions; it merely states that even someone who has been castrated (who were prevented from entering Jewish Temples because causing testicles to become dysfunctional is a massive offense against God) are not prohibited from receiving salvation through Christ. (Good thing, since salvation is by grace.)
In addition, Jesus did explicitly say that marriage was only between a man & a woman, and did not remove the already-in-place laws regarding homosexual practice. Mark 10:7 There is no scriptural basis for same-sex marriage whatsoever.
“5 – God uses rainbows in the sky to show his love and covenant of peace with humanity. — (Genesis 9:13) There’s even a rainbow around His throne.– (Revelations 4:3)”
I assume this is one of the more humorous points, sine the two are not related. I have unfortunately, met people who assume that a rainbow is a symbol of homosexuality. Instead, God’s meaning for the rainbow is to promise that the next time he judges the world it would be with fire, not with water.
The assertion that David & Jonathan had a homosexual relationship is Saul’s assertion, not the Bible’s. There is literally nothing to indicate that either Jonathan or David had eroticized same-sex attractions, nor engaged in erotic same-sex activities. This is what we call “queering the text”. i.e. the’s the Gay lobby’s attempt to inset their political and religious agenda into history. Robert Gagnon discusses their relationship in detail in the book “The Bible and Homosexual Practice”.
Also interesting that they found no non-tragic “love” stories they could even attempt to queer.
There is absolutely nothing in the scripture to indicate this assertion whatsoever. Neither of these verses indicate that man was created to experience erotic same-sex attractions, nor is the concept of “intersex” even mentioned. In fact, were this assertion true, Genesis 2:20 wouldn’t make much sense, because he would have found what he needed within him. In addition, assuming this verse were correct, it ignores the distinction God performs on Adam in creating Eve immediately after, again ignoring Mark 10:7. In other words. This is mindless drivel.
“2 – He designed a FABulous wedding in the Holy City of New Jerusalem and invited all his children (male, female and intersex) to come dressed in a gorgeous bridal gown. — (Revelations 19:5-9; Revelations 21:9-11)”
Again, this expresses a spiritual relationship between Christ and the Church, one which God creates marriage to mimic, not an erotic one between all men & women. Ignores Matthew 22:30 / Mark 12:25.
