RESPONSE TO A CHALLENGER ON HOMOSEXUALITY

Challenger: I understand the whole “God hates fags” pitch. I think it doesn’t play in 2017. We know too many adorable gays—with many who are still in the closet, sadly. If you want to throw them from the tops of buildings (and forgive “straight” divorce, which Jesus clearly hated and preached against), go ahead. If these people are not your neighbors, who is? You were loved and appeared to love your fellow architecture students who were/are gay. What changed?

Me:   You sure are leaping to conclusions.
Have never thrown anyone off a building.
Hired homosexuals when in charge of technical hiring for a large A/E firm.
Designed projects for gay clients.
Every place we lived there was a gay couple within doors of us - a lesbian couple in their 70;s lives 75' down the hall.
My younger son's best Sunday School teacher was a former homosexual who sold flowers on Rittenhouse Square.
I have never justified divorce (except for Biblical grounds), fornication,  living together before marriage, porn, R-rated movies,  or anything else.
All will put you in hell.

HOWEVER - homosexuality is still an abomination and while not the only one is a core rebellion against whom God made you. There is no "gay gene" and adorable does not cut it with God.   Look, I had two adorable clients who worked for the Educational Testing Service in Princeton making up those diabolical questions. They were eccentric and hoarders, but intellectually smart and engaging and liked to talk about their church.   When the project was about 95% complete, I was shocked looking at the front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer one day to see his picture and he was in jail for molesting his six grandchildren, all adopted from Vietnam.  His wife called three days later as though nothing had happened and wanted to finish the project.  I could not get the Contractor back there.   

I can never celebrate what is repugnant to God.   I will not go with signs to protest homosexual "weddings", but I will never go to one either, put my endorsement on their relationship., or as a minister marry them in a ceremony,  Thankfully, I cannot legally marry anyone in Pennsylvania though I have been asked more than once by heterosexual couples, as I do not have an active congregation, but do the work of an evangelist. Though a friend in one case, the man was not behaving in a biblical manner and I did not deem his marriage to be allowed scripturally.  In Denmark and other areas they seek to force ministers to marry people.  My Dad was a pastor and he rejected more couples than he accepted, especially during WWII.  Most reputable ministers insist on counseling and being sure the couple is ready to marry.   


What I oppose so vociferously is the attempt to force anyone to celebrate what is repugnant to God and which by nature is a sin against the human body.  Few people even know what gay people do in bed.  I do - I dated an African girl back in the early 70's who lived at the YWCA who told me what Lesbians actually do.  She was so grossed out she moved in with an older woman.  The sanitization of sin happens in all arenas, but the current push to force everyone to endorse these perversions is totally against our Constitutional Freedoms and the freedom of Conscience.

PREZ TRUMP'S PHYSICAL AND THE MENTAL ILLNESS OF THE MEDIA

I listened to the news conference today with the President's doctor. The same one that examined Obama when he was President. He gave him an excellent bill of health and though he had no reason to other than the President requested it, he did the Montreal cognitive test which Trump aced at 30 out of 30. Yet, a fake news babe asked it there any signs of early dementia!!! The dementia is in the press:    
1) They said no one would benefit from the tac cut and it looks like at least a million people have gotten raises and/or bonuses already. Do they change their tune? Nope. That is mentally ill.
2) They claim Trump is corrupt while ignoring the biggest scandals in US History committed by DEMOCRATS - the email scandal with foreign powers getting classified information, Fusion GPS, Uranium One and of course Fast and Furious, the IRS mess with Lois Lerner, Benghazi, and so forth. DO they turn there attention to those? NEVER! They pretend they do not exist. That is mentally ill.  
3) They want open borders. The idiot new Governor Murphy in NJ wants to commit the same suicide as California that now has more poverty than any other state. Immigrants are pooping in the streets and urinating publicly in places such as San Francisco - people who cannot live in America, but here to fulfill Democrat electoral dreams, as any thinking American who knows English has long thrown the Dems in the trash bin of history. To continue to push for failed policies is mentally ill and part of the definition of insanity.
We should make all news media people submit to a cognitive assessment because it is clear that thinking is a lost art in their arena.

JERSUALEM< JERUSALEM!

Praise God for a pResident who actually does what hew says!   The last few presidents talked about it.  The Congress passed the law.  Only Trump was willing to actually honor our bet ally in the Middle East.

The House passed a bill limiting abortion to these first 20 weeks.  Remember the SCOTUS first
trimester decision run Roe v. Wade?   This one is based upon when the baby can feel pain.  It is
a start, but I am not confident Mitch McConnell and the other spinelesss folks in the Senate will
pass it also.

I am praying for all unrighteous Congresspersons of both parties to be gone.  Franken was high
on my list, and hopefully by the time you read this he will be gone.  He is but one of many.

Is it not strange that there is an outcry for asking women for sexual favors, which I find very creepy
but the SAME PEOPLE have no issue with causing pain and death to an innocent baby simply
growing in his own mother's wombs waiting to make his or her mark in the world?

We need an end to hypocrisy.     And we need to pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

SHOULD CHRISTIANS BE FORCED TO BAKE A GAY WEDDING CAKE?

Here is a recent exchange on Facebook –

Me:    Of course not! Freedom means being able to follow your conscience. Homosexual "weddings" are a total sham and a celebration of perverted behavior. A true Christian could never go to one, approve of one, or participate in the celebration of an abomination as a baker, photographer, or other enabler. THIS IS BASIC FREEDOM, which liberals, Muslims and others routinely enjoy as NO CASE has ever been brought about their matter-of-fact refusal to bake Trump cakes (libs), gay cakes (Muslims), etc. it It a purely anti-Christian effort. We have the Bill of Rights for a reason, though many judges do not understand that but simply are there to push a demented left-wing agenda with zero consideration of the law. There is a real possibility Kennedy will vote his pro-gay beliefs and make it 5-4 against the Constitution. If that happens, Christians must be prepared to stand regardless. The SCOTUS has made many errors - remember Plessy vs. Ferguson in 1896? A man who was 1/8 black but passed for white got on the best part of the train with no issues. When he stated he was really black, they asked him to move to the "colored" section. The SCOTUS ruled against him that Separate but Equal was fine. Some universities today still do that with back dorms, etc. except now it isa t the request of blacks. Only God is the final arbiter and we need to stand for right no matter how many stand for wrong.

Challenger  How about a racist motel owner turning away black family in need of lodging for a night? Racism and anti-gay bigotry are “matters of conscience.” We’re allowed to think and speak as we like, but when we offer our services commercially, we need to offer them to all comers our equal terms. If you can’t be gracious, you’ll attract legal challenges that will put you out of business. I suspect that there were once pastors who would not perform interracial marriages as a matter of conscience.

Me:   I cannot disagree more and find it extraordinarily insulting to compare the color of one skin with abominable sexual perversion that does violence to the human body. This argument by gay radicals deeply insults black people. I testified concerning this at a public hearing on so called "human rights". Thankfully the mayor's veto was sustained The argument is fallacious because the Bible specifically forbids partiality and in fact Miriam got leprosy for criticizing her brother Moses' marriage to a black African. On the other hand, homosexuality is condemned not only by the Bible but by the Quran and almost every society until recently. We are to have no part of unrighteousness.

We are not talking about selling people food, coffee or a car here. No one asks anything in straight transactions, and in fact at the hearing NO ONE said they has EVER experienced discrimination .  It was :”just in case” – yes,  Just in case there was a Christian they wanted to target make an example of.   That is the true history of these cases – sometimes traveling 3,000 miles to do so – agenda—driven to the extreme.  A wedding is a whole different story from a simple sales transaction. We are talking about CELEBRATING and AFFIRMING the unfruitful works of darkness. We are talking about an intensely personal service in a celebratory event.  That is how I found out John Kasich was a fraud - he said he was a Christian and opposed homosexual "marriage" but went to one of friend to "support" him. That is absurd. If you are against a wedding, you do not go. Our wedding was packed and our pastor, our elders and our family ALL approved. I would not want anyone there who thought what we were doing was wrong. You cannot celebrate what is abhorrent to God, and the first amendment (read it again last night) says the freedom of religion cannot be abridged.


According to Merriam Webster, RELIGION Is a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices. A Christian made a custom ring for with your point of view made custom rings for a lesbian couple. When they found out he was a Christian, they demanded a refund. All sane people want those involved in their wedding to be in their corner -we selected very carefully for our wedding. IT is SOLELY about seeking to shut down all debate and insist that EVERYONE believe in their pagan practices which shall be destroyed by Christ's breath at his coming. Those who approve of what God hates are on thin ic and I do not like really cold water.

BACK ATCHA

The photo of Matt Lauer grilling Bill O'Reilly is so prescient.  Matt's sins were far worse that Bill O'Reilly's accusations.  Robert Mueller and Comey were so entwined with the Hillary deceptions they have no business judging ANYONE.  I am praying that they will end up like Matt Lauer, totally exposed as rank hypocrites and FIRED.

god is not mocked - what a man sows, he indeed shall reap.

A HIT ON JUDGE ROY MOORE

It is too early to tell whether is was the RINO's like John McCain and the despicable Mitch McConnell who were behind the salacious accusations against Roy Moore or the Demoncrats, but absent from the pubic debate is the simple fact that for Leigh Corfman this has not been the first time. She has routinely accused Christian leaders and pastors of the same thing. She has been laughed out of court and even the Washington Post admits she has a credibility problem.  A man who dated her even has said she is lying about her age which of course goes to the heart of the matter.  There is no law about a man dating a younger woman - only if she is a minor.

Mitch spent 9 million trying to get a fellow RINO in Alabama he can control - Luther Strange.  We need more Roy Moore's.  We need more true Conservatives.  We need for Mitch to get kicked out. Understand that these accusations are standard operating procedure for the Demoncrats but the wicked GOP swamp creatures are just as likely too engage in this mess.

Please press Mitch, McCain, Murkowsky (MMM)and other swamp creatures to resign.  I am praying for God to remove them.  Let us hope there is justice in America - innocent until proven guilty.  PERIOD.

DRIVE-BY CHRISTIANITY


I am truly distressed on how often preachers depart from the word of God to promote man-made agendas. Some church websites now hide or omit any Statement of Faith - they substitute "values" which become de facto doctrines and these more often than not reflect the world's values rather than God's. I just saw one Friday for a church in Cincinnati and wrote the pastor a kind letter about his. Here are just two values du jour...

UNITY. Jesus prayed in John 17 in his high priestly prayer for his children to be one. He did not pray they would ignore false doctrine and unite with people who teach the opposite of the Bible. DIVERSITY. The Bible says that people of every tribe and tongue will be in heaven. Our churches should not be segregated racially. economically or denominationally. However, when churches welcome in unrepentant persons who practice sexual immorality and other things, that is not a positive value. It leads to the death of churches.

In other cases, there are "drive-by" references to those little memes repeated endlessly by Christians without regard to their validity. "By his stripes" is short for promoting healing being guaranteed by the atonement. They say the blood of Jesus guarantees wellness. Ignored are Jesus' own words in Matthew 26:28 "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins." It does not say "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins, for divine health, and for you to be rich." They also cite Isaiah and Peter totally out of context where the message is CLEARLY spiritual healing, and they ignore the fact Jesus did his healing ministry BEFORE the atonement. Yet that is preached endlessly. Now I believe in healing, and in fact testified to a Southern Baptist Pastor last night about the healing I had witnessed.

Then someone prayed at church today about dropping doctrine as though doctrine were something evil. You sure need to know what the Bible says about doctrine before being dismissive of it - I have a booklet I wrote on the subject I would be glad to send you if you message me. And then also today I heard yet another plea for people to "tithe", which is absolutely nowhere in the new covenant. Paul says each man is to determine in HIS OWN HEART what to give. Read the history of the early church. Further, Old Testament tithing was 23.3% - two annual FOOD tithes of 10% and a triennial poor tithe of 10%. This is on crops and the Pharisees even tithed on their window plants. If you got 10 strawberries, you gave God two each year and three every third year. Abraham gave 10% of the spoils of war to Melchizadek, not all he had at home. The 10% of your money idea is a relatively modern construct and no one in my six decades in Christ has ever been able to satisfactorily explain to me how it really can be equitably applied in an industrialized society with some people getting benefits. some not, others self-employed. Total compensation includes benefits yet just like teachers do not care where students understand evolution but just want them to believe it, preachers never explain how their system really works - they simply want people to do it - gross, net, etc., but none include benefits which shows the inherent injustice of this man-made idea and God is not a God of injustice. The same preachers do not preach adherence to other ceremonial laws but just this one. Jesus nailed them ALL to the cross and we are in the dispensation of grace. Most of the references to giving in the New Covenant have to do with giving to PEOPLE such as the POOR, ORPHANS, and WIDOWS, and sometimes to support the evangelists and those ministering, but never to support a massive church structure. That came later. Further, people say to solve your financial problems by giving.  There is MASSIVE abuse of this with TV preachers, but local churches can be just as abusive. Two in Philly have asked for your 1040 to ASSESS your tithe. Crazy, huh? Pride problems? Immense. Pins for giving certain amounts - a direct violation of scripture. We give because of the overflow in our spirit and our desire to minster to Christ by helping spread the gospel and ministering to the least of his brethren. Many do not realize that lots of cults and other religions tithe also, and no doubt that personal discipline of money can benefit you whether or not you are a Christian.  However, we must not use compulsion or selective use of the Old Covenant to guilt people into doing something.  90% of Christians do not tithe - some because they are simply selfish, but others because they know what the Bible really teaches. People will give a lot on their own when their relationship is right with the Lord.   I have a booklet on tithing practices too if you message me.

The sad thing to me is that just like so many people accept the memes of the drive-by media uncritically (someone just quoted CNN to me as an unimpeachable source!!!), they accept what they are told without EVER examining the scriptures carefully as the Bereans did. Be sure to do that. I tell people to check me out as well just as Paul instructed the church to do with him, so no one, no matter how much you respect them, is exempt. We must press for the truth whether in politics, faith, or in our chosen career. We really have to cut through the mustard to avoid deception.
