I am sticking to the WORD on this matter, so that any, and all, disagreements will be with GOD, and not with me. I will not debate this topic; but I will address this topic. It does not matter how good the lie sounds; nor how many people tell the same lie…. A lie is a lie! GOD’S WORD cannot be altered; changed; twisted; ignored or overlooked. Anything contrary to the WORD of GOD is a lie.
There is no need to wonder why this nation is falling apart; why the economy is down; the government has shut down (and will probably shut down again); all types of tragic events; mass murders; fires; climate disasters, etc. are taking place. Where there is no regard for the WORD of GOD, there is no regard for life! JESUS said, “...the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.” John 6:63
The WORD of GOD is clear on this matter; and regardless of how much people may try to make this right; no matter how **Bishop Allyson Abrams of Detroit, tries to condone it….. GOD says it is wrong. http://www.michronicleonline.com/index.php/news-briefs-original/14999-local-bishop-resigns-after-revealing-same-sex-marriage-part-1
Same sex marriage is sin; same sex relationship is a sin….just as fornication and adultery is sin. We cannot be bold to speak on some sin, but scared to speak on other sins. The Bible says, “…let God be true, but every man a liar…” So here is what GOD says, “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.” (Leviticus 20:13). “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.” (Leviticus 18:22).
The Bible says, “Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly… God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.” (Romans 1:24-32).
In both the Old Testament and the New Testament, we can clearly see that GOD is NOT condoning same sex relationships. It actually shows us that GOD hates it. The scripture is clear. The WORD of GOD is TRUTH. This nation is more conscious of being ‘politically correct’, than ‘spiritually correct.' GOD says, “be ye holy, for I am holy.” But we have compromised. Instead of being set apart, the church is blending in with the world and it’s lies.
Believers are called for such a time as this, to stand for what is right; stand against the wiles of the devil; speak the TRUTH in love; to be bold in our faith: Refusing to ignore sin and darkness, but to stand against it! People of GOD, we have got to stand for something, or we will fall for anything. I am not judging; but I am speaking truth. Our ministry receives anyone; we are an outreach who ministers weekly to those young ladies selling their bodies on the street; men and women battling addiction; those who have been imprisoned naturally and spiritually… so what? But we are ministering the truth, so they can be free. We are not condoning and conforming. We are not calling the truth a lie; but speaking the truth, so that people can be free.
The church must stand on the WORD; stand for the TRUTH and stand against the lies and wickedness. Don't believe the serpent lies; when you have GOD'S TRUTH.
