WILL NOT BOW

14

Reading a blog just the other day from a liberal Christian blogger who felt that today’s church needs to bow down to the world and apologize to the LGBTQ society for I’m guessing not occluding them.

This poses a few questions from me, what church is there certain denomination? Is it any evangelical church, Roman or charismatic Catholics, Eastern Orthodox churches could you put Orthodox Jewish Synagogue’s as well. Is it the pastor that needs to apologize, the elders, the congregation because that is the church you and I are the church.

Let us just assume our blogger is pointing the finger to any church that refused to bow down to practicing the LGBTQ lifestyle within the confines of the church and Christianity. Christians are not to judge the outside of the church, 1 Corinthians 5: 12-13 (the world). God will and with that Christians do not owe the world an apology for standing with the word of God. The Church does not owe those outside of it an apology for not compromising with an amoral society that does not follow The God of the Bible.

But do we owe the LGBTQ society inside the church an apology for not compromising with their behavior? There really is not much difference sin wise when a person that deals with same sex attraction as does a person that is dealing with sexual addiction of the opposite sex. People have their vices but what separates the believer from the non believer is the continuing hunger to strive for God’s obedience.

People that believe obey and people that obey believe to paraphrase Dietrich Bonhoeffer, repentance is part of obeying God’s word. A question to our blogger is where in the Gospel does God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit condone and promote the LGBTQ lifestyle?

We are not stating when and where do we stop loving somebody for practicing a lifestyle outside of Biblical principles but do we condone, do we promote and do we except it as part of Christian life and in the church? Same sex attraction can be accommodated in the Christian church just as sex addiction, drug addiction, lying and idolatry but it cannot be practiced, condoned or promoted.

The accommodation comes in the form of love understanding and help to overcome the sin, not to hatefully judge but to lovingly support and work with the individuals in their healing.

Maybe it’s the other way around maybe LGBTQ crowed need to apologize to the church for not identifying with Jesus and his teachings and not being sensitive to the church and what the church is commanded to follow. What is the identity of a person or group that does not put God first and follow Jesus and his teaching both old and New Testament?

If the church needs to apologize it should be the church that has compromised with the world to Christians for leading them from the Gospel. A church that conveniently overlooks God and his moral law for fear of alienating people is no church but just a body of people that have religion but no God.

HOW FAR WILL YOU TAKE SIN?

Hugh Hefner waves the white flag ending nudity in the long publication of Playboy magazine while Miley Cyrus gets ready to perform an all nude concert.

Playboy magazine recognizes pornography has engulfed our society so much so Playboy magazine and it’s so called classy nudity is no longer enough to keep the boys happy, a few clicks and you see way beyond what Playboy can offer and best of all or not it is free.

Miley Cyrus who is determined to be the Madonna of her generation plans to perform 6 concerts completely nude along with the band and the audience.
2 It’s not enough to one up the sex drugs and rock and roll culture Miley needs to take it to the next level but how far is too far and will it ever be too far. Galatians 5:19-21 those who fill their hearts and mind with this will not inherit the Kingdom of God

Reminiscent of the days of anything goes punk rock bands maybe but if Cyrus pulls this off it will trump the deviant norm.

So Miley, the band and the audience enjoy a clothing free concert, what will be next? Will this be as far as Miley and her entourage dare or will the fans, the sponsors and the promoters demand more.

More nudity, add live sex, drugs and some rock n roll and we have achieved a full live on stage pornography show way beyond anything Hugh and the boys at Playboy could have ever imagined.

The conclusion to this is simple; sin if not avoided will continue to grow. Proverbs 6:16-19 states there are six things the Lord hates and one being feet that make haste to run to evil why you ask because it grows larger and corrupts.

Hugh Hefner and Miley Cyrus are lying to you and your children another one of those six sins the Lord hates. They are lying to you and your children that casual sex, drugs, and pornography does not exploit nor destroy people.

Pornography is fine, sex drugs don’t matter nothing will happen. Would you let your son hang with Miley and would you let your daughter date Heff; if not why not, are they not role models; do what they stand for you stand for as well? Philippians 4:8  Turn from sin stand with truth.
