As the media portrays every Bible thumper as a homosexual hating crusader most preachers turn their back on what the word actually says.. When we jump into this topic its easy to see the hatred on both sides. We see persecution and name calling followed by unintelligent qwips with a little ranting and raving. The problem becomes, no one seems to be looking at what scripture actually says.
When we actually look at what the Bible says its quite clear. The fact remains, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” – John 3:16
We also need to take a look at what Jesus Christ does indeed hate: “These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.” – Proverbs 6:16-19
“But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitanes, which I also hate.” – “So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate.” – Revelation 2:6,15
Its easy to see the difference between what is being preached in America vs what scripture actually says. This is the problem when we let media and government interpret the Bible for us. This is the doctrine of statism, nicolatians, religion. This is exactly what Jesus Christ is claiming to hate. Using religion to control or persecute people.
The reality remains we are ALL sinners. Claiming that God hates homosexuals while fronting like your own sin is God ordained. This is hypocritical religion. Which is hated by Jesus Christ. “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.” – 1 John 1:8
No where in scripture can it be found that Jesus Christ hates homosexuals. In fact quite the contrary. He loves them. So much so that He payed the penalty for them on the cross. His death burial and resurrection prove He was God. And proves He can beat death. Best of all, His blood being shed literally pays the debt for your sin. Sexual, violent, evil, manipulative, ect. All sin, past, present, and future. What kind of God would Jesus Christ be if His death only payed for certain sins? What kind of believer thinks only his sin is forgiven and not others?
This is exactly why Jesus Christ continuously warns us about wolves. Men and women claiming to be Children of God while persecuting those He loves. Jesus Christ preached the truth to sinners. The pharisees couldn’t handle these truths because of their own self righteous pride. Thinking their good works and good deeds where their ticket into heaven. – Source Matthew 23 KJV Also, “But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.” – Isaiah 64:6
This is exactly what’s happening in America. Preachers have tossed aside the word of God to float their own boat. They lie and manipulate the word of God to push their own agenda or pick up their own egos. Ask any one of these so called preachers to poop in a bucket in their living room for a week and tell me whether or not it stinks. *SPOILER* It does.
The reality is we as Americans need to stop believing what is shoved down our throats because it fuels an emotional battle. One community against another. Who wins? Those in control. They use both sides to propose and push agendas on freedom of speech and real freedom on both sides. Meanwhile you are too emotional to think critical or actually challenge what you’re being told. You simply pick a side and start clapping for your team. Not once looking up whether or not these media “preachers” were being honest.
