Plain speaking, with absolutely no apology.
In a recent exchange regarding the usual hysterics by they who live with no moral absolutes, I had suggested that a smokescreen of sorts was employed to justify homosexuality. To which the following reply was given by a steady customer who drinks free coffee and complains about the taste:
‘Why should there be any ”need” to put any ”face” on homosexuality?
The character, Jesus of Nazareth was considered to be homosexual by some scholars. Why is this an issue for you?’
It matters not who said this, he knows his fate, and others agree, so it could have been said by hundreds, or thousands, who cares; and it is unnecessary to link lest I drive further madness to the house of a friend.
However. The blatant point was TRIED to be made, that the Christ of God, the anointed Messiah, David’s Lord and David’s greater son, He whose name is Emmanuel, He whose name is Wonderful, He of whom the law, the prophets, and the psalms all sing their praise, He who is the lion of the tribe of Judah, He who Moses wrote of, He to whom belongs light, perfect truth, and impeccable judgment, He through whom was seen the effulgent brightness of the glory of God, He through whom removed the sting of death, He to whom all angels pay attention, He by whom brought dignity to women, He by whom before the proud they scatter, He who currently sits on the right hand of God by His own worth, yes this One, this incomparable sinless Lord, was deemed a sinner, yes, dubbed a homosexual by ‘scholars.’
Uh huh, sure, but is any true student of scripture surprised by such depravity? Is any thoughtful believer taken back by evil seducers who bring doctrines of devils? Is any well-balanced disciple of Christ moved by such perversity of thought, or such detestable uncleanness? I think not.
Yet again, as if the daily news editors were citing scripture, on cue we see the assaults of the person, work, and worth of the Lord Jesus Christ, by painting Him as a sinner, with the intention of course to cast Him as an unfit Saviour.
Yep, a sinful man could redeem no-one with such blemishes. Is homosexuality a blemish? Well, God calls it unnatural as well as sin, so you call it what you wish, but at the end of the day, you can be assured that such activity falls short of the glory of God. Sin comes in many attractive flavors, as is opium quite the flower.
Quite the drug that egregious flower of unbelief and ignorance, and what dark petals of vice, venom, and vile.
A harmless lie, she loves me. Stealing penny candy, she loves me not. Coveting my neighbors pool, she loves me. Bowing to the god of mammon, she loves me not. Saying there is no God, she loves me. Saying Christ was homosexual, she loves me not.
All unrighteousness is sin. Is this my opinion? Nope, it is God’s word like it or not. Hey, I’m not clever enough to dream up such marvelous truth, and neither are you. What’s the beef with the Lord being homosexual? Uh, ever heard of sin, righteousness, and judgment?
There is no sin on the throne of God, and the so-called scholars? Bastards of interpretation, for scripture presents words easy to be entreated from the true Father. They have gone their own way, deceiving and being deceived, for scripture rings a clear bell to an honest heart.
But let’s turn it around and suggest WHY a person would have no issue with the Lord being a sinner. Easy. To make Him an unfit Saviour, to make Him less of who He is, to make Him needing a Saviour Himself. To bring Christ down from above. Nice try, but no can do.
There is no blemish in or on the Lamb of God. None. Which of you convinces me of sin? was the word leveled against the hypocrites, and of course none could dare lift a finger or a stone of offence.
Oh yeah, let’s not forget the disciple whom Jesus loved……….yep, many have taken the bungee cord and stretched it through the gates of decadence. Hmm, let’s see, could it simply be that the Lord knew the heart of John, and that he would write later: I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
Quite an accolade the Lord payed to the apostle, and the mere suggestion that there was an improper ‘other’ kind of relationship speaks to the wickedness of the human heart. It really is that simple.
But we are such hypocrites. We pick up fruit or vegetables in our hands at the grocery, and scan with our eyes the quality……..nope, there is a blemish………put it back, but we do not extend to God the same courtesy of thought regarding He who is blemish free and perfect in ALL His ways. Light is like that, other than that, no big deal. Or is it…………
(Ps- this link also presents the Lord of scripture as the Lord of creation, as well as a willing Lord to any sincere heart)
