Yes, ladies and gentlemen, one way of saving our children, especially those who believe they might be “gay,” is to arbitrarily change God’s law and pronouncements about homosexuality.
At least that is what is being argued by a pro-sodomy and perversion group that names itself Faith in America, headed up by flaming homosexual, Mitchell Gold.
According to a Press Release, “Today, Faith in America announces an unprecedented effort to focus the nation’s largest protestant denomination on what they must be doing to not harm and, instead, protect America’s teens and kids who are LGBT.”
That “largest protestant denomination,” which is not Protestant at all, just happens to be the Southern Baptist Convention, and the effort focuses on its annual convention, which is held this year in Phoenix.
If arguing for sexual perversion, such as homosexuality, is not absurd enough, the argument behind Faith in America should add clarity to anyone confused on the subject of whether or not a man’s penis belongs in the anus of another man, let alone a child or teenager, as an act of “love.”
Mitchell Gold argued, “Faith in America (FIA), an organization that exists to end religious-based harm to our LGBT community, realizes Americans can no longer sit by while our children and teenagers are being hurt.”
First of all, the Bible makes it perfectly clear that God is not a religion. God is a holy person who has given us his law, which is not subject to change based purely on fallen humanity’s whimsical feelings.
In both the Old and New Testaments, homosexuality is defined as an “abomination” (Lev. 18:22) and as a practice that is dishonorable, unnatural, and shameful (Rom. 1:26-27).
In the Old Testament, homosexual “perversion” is in the same category as the act of bestiality (Lev. 18:23). In the New Testament, it is in company with other “depraved” sins, such as murder, greed, and slander (Rom. 1:28-31).
Above all, homosexuality is viewed as an egregious sin worthy of death (Lev. 20:13; Rom. 1:32); that is how serious the sin was in God’s eyes.
Ultimately, the homosexual is deemed to be “unrighteous” and cannot inherit the kingdom of God (1 Cor. 6:9), and that despite all the religious nonsense the homosexual may spew about how he/she has “accepted Jesus.”
Yet, Mr. Gold et al want everyone to think they are doing the children and teenagers a favor by shielding them from “religious-based harm” and “hurt”?
Excuse me, but if God is telling the truth about homosexuality, then to be shielding them from that truth, only to encourage them to engage in the degrading, demeaning, disgusting acts that the Sodomite is so proud, will result in the ultimate hurt: a one-way ticket to hell for eternity.
Second, Gold continues, “Our SYK [Save Your Kids] project is developed to address religious-based practices that condemn our teens and youth, creating hostile environments both at church and home, places most needed by our youth.”
Anyone who is not “born again,” as Jesus discussed in John 3:1-ff. is already “condemned.” Jesus said, “He who believes in him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God” (Jn. 3:18).
To believe in Jesus is not merely mouthing his name loosely on one’s lips and then return to the same sin-sick behavior that put Jesus on the cross in the first place.
Believing in Jesus is to keep his commandments (Jn. 4:14, 21; 15:10)!
Jesus did not come to “abolish the Law and Prophets,” but to “fulfill” or confirm what God had revealed to us as the moral guide to sanctified righteousness (Matt. 5:17)
Since Jesus is the Word of God personified (Jn. 1:1), then Jesus’ confirmation that homosexuality was an “abomination” and “detestable act” earlier in the Old Testament Law was as much in effect later when he established the New Covenant.
Those who deny, distort, or disapprove of what Jesus taught by confirming the “Law and Prophets,” do not love Jesus. They are not born again. They are condemned—”already.”
Third, Gold wrote, “This is not about conflict and division.”
Anytime there is an attack upon the truth of God, there is conflict. Anytime there is success in weaning the righteous away from obeying God’s commandments, there is division.
Mr. Gold is being disingenuous in his premise that his effort is not about conflict and division.
If he was not conflicted about the truth, then he would not protest it. He would conform his words and actions to be in line with what God has to say.
If he was not divided away from the truth unto error, then he would be unified with those who see his sin as the “abomination” that God has already declared it, he would repent, and then encourage others to the do the same.
Therefore, Mr. Gold’s whole approach is to divide and conquer, with the hope of having others join him in vision of truth, which is actually an abject lie of demonic proportions.
Finally, Mr. Gold argued, “It is about speaking the truth, and standing up for our kids and teens being hurt. It is also about finding common ground around our children and youth.”
The truth is homosexuality is sin. Sin is breaking God’s law. Sin is not about depending upon God for guidance and instruction (cf. Rom. 11:33). Sin is about acting independently of God’s will by denying that God ever said anything, with the hope that the sinner can be his own god one day.
What we have here with the whole Faith in America effort is to embrace, endorse, and condone the same satanic strategy leading unto idolatry that led to humanity’s fall in the first place (see Gen. 3:1-6).
It is just that Mr. Gold and his coterie, like so many these days relying upon the same strategy, want to play on the human emotions by using children to advance their sin-laden agenda.
If SBC (Southern Baptist Convention) officials were smart, they would not give Mr. Gold, his Faith in America, or any of the rest of the LGBTQ community the time of day, much less discuss any “common ground” the unrighteous think they share with the righteous.
Instead, they would tell them the unmitigated truth about homosexuality from God’s perspective, stay the course with those in the Convention about the need to obey God’s commandments, and rely upon God for the outcome.
By doing so will offer more help against any projected “harm” or “hurt” toward children and teenagers than any condemned homosexual could possibly offer in a lifetime of self-inflicted harm and hurt.
