What’s the big deal anyway?

Plain speaking, with absolutely no apology.

Image result for plain amish

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)

    Brilliant post CS!
    God Bless you…
    This unashamedly, debased & depraved labelling of good as evil and evil as good by those who have seared their consciences from moral functioning is now commonplace in our uncultured culture.
    Thank God we were warned.

    It’s strange, the things that they’ll advocate for us to abstain from though: eating meat, and other kinds of foods… that’s defilement to them 😦 …. talk about godless, pointless, worthless thinking… the inevitable conclusion to a life devoid of the God of life, love, light, purpose, meaning,…

      The matter-of-fact ease with which people cast aspersion upon Christ is no different than the days of His flesh.

      2,000 years has not produced a ‘better people’ eh, as scripture is spot on and without missing a beat.

      Imagine the wickedness let loose if there were no believers to help restrain evil………..

      The book of Jude is relevant here too. Tkx for your unwavering support, and kinship.

  2. Well said, Colorstorm. Without sin of any sort, holy, pure, perfect. “…..and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

    Sarah Silverstein tweeted similar words on Christmas, which is probably what has given rise to the meme. It’s kind of sad, “I think for myself, I am not indoctrinated!” Uh, yeah, not so much. They all seem to get their instructions from one mothership or another.

      Wonderful. Tkx ms bytes, it’s a noun not an adjective. Fine distinction.

      But Sarah, ouch. Right, we think for ourselves, using other peoples learning and experience and say we are original. Even the decadence is not original!

      Geez, better to agree with God, after all, He knows all about us, and those bits of clay…..and in the process, we have been given above measure in every way.

    I’m confused by your post CS. Do you personally know any gay people? And I don’t mean people who are immersed in your interpretation of Christianity and believe it’s a sin. Do you know any gay couples just living their life like the rest of the world? If so, I can’t reconcile your attitude, this fear of all things gay, with real life. I can only assume its ignorance. It’s no more an insult to call Jesus heterosexual than it is to call him homosexual. He appeared to find more loving and gentle contentment in the company of men than of women, which might suggest gay leanings. But so what? As long as he wasn’t having sexual contact outside of marriage it wouldn’t be a sin against the laws of your god. Why would simply being gay be an insult? He may well have worn garments of mixed fibre content as well. Does that strike you as sinful?

      Hi Violet-

      Actually it is a big deal. You do not ask the science of arithmetic to change to suit you do you? If you are unhappy with the results of 3 times 5, it’s no big deal to change the answer to 14 now is it?

      Yes, there are absolutes in scripture, and it is not up to men to change the answers to suit them.

      Homosexuality is a sin, (one of many clearly enunciated) it is 3 times 5. Scripture does not bend here. Of course if one believes the record of the life of Christ, then yes it matters.

      And yes, of course I know gay couples. Who doesn’t? And sorry Violet, you are mistaken when you speak of a ‘fear’ of all things gay.

      Believers do not ‘fear’ 14, it is just plain wrong. There are absolutes in this world. Yes, it is a big deal to challenge ‘male and female created he them.’ Yes, it is a big deal to challenge the account of Lot with the visiting angels; yes it is a big deal to challenge the first of Romans which among many things, speaks to the vice of sexual perversion.

      But ignorant V? Maybe your slip is showing with a bit of scriptural ignorance, and the mere fact we are discussing this proves how low mankind has fallen in avoiding the truth of God by making Him in our image.

        Yes, promiscuous homosexual acts are condemned in the Bible, as are promiscuous heterosexual acts. Homosexuality as a sexual orientation isn’t. Or please tell me where? Homosexuality within the loving and committed context of a marriage isn’t. Or please tell me where? Perhaps it’s you who is showing scriptural ignorance on this one. Easily done – take a cultural bigotry lens and apply it more widely than it is actually written.

          Seriously Violet, I know you want badly to believe I am mistaken, but who is in a better position to render more accurately an interpretation of scripture:

          Yes, that’s a good point. I certainly can’t claim to understand any supernatural aspect of understanding that comes to Christians who study the Bible. The problem is that I know Christians who have inhaled and exhaled every word from the Bible more than you or any other people you mention above. And they believe their god loves and accepts people in homosexual relationships. They understand there is no condemnation of long term, committed relationships, that the passages without exception refer to promiscuous gay sex. So I’m left wondering where you and other Christians of your leanings find scriptural backing for your condemnation and exclusionary attitude. And without exception, no-one has provided any. I thought that after such a convinced rant against homosexuality you might come up with something.

          Violet-
          Tkx, but you mentioned ‘condemnation ‘ twice.

          Still not sure why you assert that defending the gospel is condemning, when scripture clearly presents that ALL men have kinda, well, fell short of God’s level of perfection.

          We have all missed the proverbial mark of excellence, gay, straight, and otherwise.

          If I wrote of the bizarre idea that Paul the apostle started his own ‘religion,’ and challenged they who bring this nutty ides, would I be exclusionary, would I be condemning to they who are scriptural dunces?

          Stating the truth may sound condemning, but maybe the conscience is stirred, and that is always a good thing V.

    20 And inasmuch as He was not made priest without an oath 21 (for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him: “The Lord has sworn And will not relent, ‘You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek'”), 22 by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant. 23 Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing. 24 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Therefore He is able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. 26 For such a High priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; 27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself. 28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever. Hebrews 7:20-28

    Colorstorm you have confirmed the truth of the Scriptures both by vindicating the holiness of Christ and correctly labeling as evil all those who dare say such vile and unseemly things about our glorious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. They have no understanding of either Jesus or the Scriptures. Perhaps some may be redeemable but for others there awaits nothing but the fiery lake of eternal damnation.

      Apparently eliza you think it is a big deal also.

      ‘Undefiled, separate from sinners…………’ that about says it all.

      Indeed the Lamb of God was not part unclean and clean, as there was no spot nor wrinkle in or on Him.

      Lo and behold though, He was MADE sin……….and this is the heart of the gospel which repels unbelief, while gladdening the hungry.

      It is one thing to rail against believers, it is quite another to slander the Lord; meanwhile He extends grace, truly remarkable.

    Actually, a better way to describe it would be to say that those who belong to Jesus Christ are rightly alarmed by the incursion of this evil not only openly into society, but especially within the church with the force of the government behind it so that those who believe what the Bible says are being purposefully silenced. Doesn’t sound like the homosexuals are the poor discriminated minority they claim to be. Yes, they are a decided minority but they wield the power of wealth and influence in order to deceive the people and force the legalization of their anti-family unions down the throats of all reasonable and understanding people.
    Homosexuality is not only sin, it is not normal. How can anyone think it is when the physical aspect of this attraction leads to illness and death, and there is no possibility for procreation through that physical act, which negates the preservation of humanity.
    So many people go about thinking they are wise when indeed they are but blind fools. Then to have the temerity to suggest that the Lord of glory had perverse inclinations is blasphemous and goes beyond the pale. Any who have held to such wicked thoughts or words will be sorely ashamed when they meet Jesus Christ as Judge and completely undone when He casts them away into eternal destruction. Amen!

      Does not nature itself teach you! says the good book, and the answer is yyep. I still fail to see the measure of hate that is assigned to people who decidedly stand for something.
