Are LGBT People Our Brothers and Sisters In Christ?

It is extremely offensive to God and genuine children of God for LGBT to assume an identity that is exclusive of true born again believers.

A bird is a bird. A raven is a raven. An eagle is an eagle. A cat is a cat. A lion is a lion. A wolf is a wolf. A dog is a dog. A snake is a snake. A horse is a horse, of course, of course.

A believer is a believer. A sinner is a sinner.

Just as it is impossible for an animal to impersonate or assume an identity of another animal, the same is said of those that try so desperately to be like a believer but never become one.

Here is what the Lord Jesus said in Matthew 7:21-23,

“Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven. but he that does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name? ’ And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

True believers depart from iniquity. True sinners practice lawlessness.

True believers submit to the Lordship and Sovereignty of Jesus.

True sinners rebel and reject the Lordship and Sovereignty of Jesus.

What is the will of the Father?

The first thing that Jesus preached after He was baptized was…

“Repent, for the kingdom of the heaven is at hand.”

When it is all said and done, the Lord will look at those that thought that they were in the kingdom and tell them…

‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness! ’

You see, to know Him is to repent and be born again, and depart from the very thing He died for.

Your sins.

Practicing LGBT sinners do not want you to call homosexuality, done openly or in secret, a sin. Telling you not to judge is just another tactic to get you to back off. In militant anger, they breathe fire and brimstone out on anyone that call homosexuality and lesbianism a sin.

Little by little they use every available tool to make homosexuality look less like sin and more like an acceptable form of lifestyle. The evidence emphatically and undeniably declare that the spots on the Leopard remain and the stripes on the Zebra remain.

Unapologetically, believers of the Lord Jesus Christ are only calling people that practice sin by the title conferred upon all man according to Romans 5:12.

Many in the homosexual community as well as in all sexual immorality circles that believe that children of God should not “judge” another person. It is the Holy Spirit’s job is to “convince” or show you with irrefutable evidence what sin is.

So when a sin is declared a sin, the Holy Spirit brings convicting power to get you to see that you need to repent. The Holy Spirit will not overpower you. The Holy Spirit will not overwhelm you. The Holy Spirit will make sure that you know that you have sinned.

Sinners and carnal, or sense/flesh ruled believers are trying to tell the holy, sanctified believers in the church not to judge.

They do not know the difference between good and evil.

Only the Holy Spirit, the Word of God, and correctly taught disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ are qualified to discern the difference between right and wrong (see Hebrews 5:12-14).

Sinners are incapable of discerning right from wrong for two reasons…

First, Jesus is our Lord and the Bible is the inerrant, infallible (incapable of the true Author-God, to be in error) Word of God.

Second, to qualify to know the difference between good and evil, you have to be a child of God which requires that you must repent, and be born again by the Holy Spirit.

God is right. And sinners are wrong.

LGBT sinners do not want you to call homosexuality, done openly or in secret, a sin. Telling you not to judge is just another tactic to get you to back off. In militant anger, they breathe fire and brimstone out on anyone that calls what they do a sin.

Most will know the story of Cain and Abel. Abel brought a lamb to be sacrificed, and the Lord was pleased. Cain brought fruit to offer to the Lord, and the Lord rejected Cain and his offering. Cain was mad and killed his brother. He really want to kill God but we all know that that is impossible, so Cain killed who he could get to.

Simple remedy.

All Cain had to do was repent to the Lord and find a lamb.

So it is with LGBT sinners.

Instead of simply coming to the Lamb of God in true repentance, they bring “fruit” to offer before God. This “fruit” is the attitude that says to God, ‘This is what I am giving You and You are going to accept it. That’s the way it’s going to be. Take it or leave it.”

Then, there are those LGBT sinners that play like God accepted homosexuality as not a sin, and pretend that it’s all good. Knowing full well that the Bible says otherwise.

Then they take it a step further.

The build churches around LGBT issues and label the true church of Jesus Christ as intolerant, unloving, out of step with the times, and completely irrelevant. Building homosexual churches and calling themselves “gay Christians” is “Wheat and Tares” according to Matthew 13:24-30.

The role reversal of LGBT is unacceptable.

Darkness telling light to take a hike. Does that make any sense?

How can darkness turn on the light? How could darkness tell you what light looks like?

How could darkness stick around when the light comes on? When you walk into a room, have you ever seen darkness stick around when the light comes on?

All sinners do not have the right to audaciously and arrogantly tell God what He is going to accept. And far be it from the truth that LGBT can take God’s church that He established through the cross of Christ and make it an institution of sin. Jesus Christ died so we could be freed from the guilt, shame, and power of sin. Not to continue to practice sin.

And when the true believers tell them that what they are doing is sin, they get mad and spew anger at the righteous.

All LGBT sinners has to do is repent, and be born again.

I know that you have noticed by now that I have used the word “sinner.”

I am not saying or using this word in anger at any LGBT sinner. I am only using the Bible’s specified word to describe what a person outside of Christ is.

Homosexuality is the highest manifestation of depravation.

Sinners practice sin. So when they practice the highest form of sin known to man, it requires the highest definition.

Abomination. Perversion. Sin.

The highest form of judgment was Sodom and Gomorrah. Fire and brimstone was a one time judgment upon sinfully depraved man.

HIV/AIDS is the highest ranking STD to date known to man simply because the body defiled itself in deplorable, abominable sexual sins, and as a consequence, significantly reduced it’s immune system.

Sadly, a bacteria sneeze from a sick person is capable of killing a person with full blown AIDS.

This is what Paul meant, (although the medical term HIV/AIDS was clearly unknown to him) in Romans 1:26-27.

I am aware of those “extreme believers” that use the term “sinner” in pride and arrogance, in an attempt to look their nose down upon people caught in the sin of homosexuality, but this is not the Spirit of Christ.

It is not enough to know that sin is sin.

We must also know that there is a way out of sin through the blood of Jesus.

I once was a sinner just like any person, but I am now saved by His grace. I’ve accepted His terms for salvation and am no longer an enemy of God. To be called a sinner is not for the purpose of being offensive. It’s not about offending. It is about Biblically calling those outside of the grace of Christ who they are.

It is also about extending a chance of reconciliation or exchange from being an enemy of God to be His friend. There is no way around it except to repent and believe the true gospel of Jesus Christ.

To repent means to turn completely away from that which the Lord hates and fully accept the eternal sacrifice of His Son to be saved from sin and the wrath that is to come.

When a professed believer calls another person a sinner, or tells a person that they’ve sinned, it must be done with the intent to get sinners to see the error of their ways, and help them to repent, and get it right with God.

It is about getting sins forgiven so you could establish a relationship with God on His holy terms.

Paul said in Romans 3:23,

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”

Because the righteous know what the Bible says, new believers are no longer called sinners. According to 2 Corinthians 5:17, we are now “…new creatures in Christ, old things have passed away, behold all things become new.”

You cannot be new and old at the same time. Based on the Bible, you are either new or you are old.

You can’t be both.

The purpose of being new is to do away with the old. When you have the new, there is no need for the old. Therefore, there is no need for sin. There is no need to sin.

Only then, will you have permission to sit at the table.

As I have said before, children of God do not impersonate sinners but sinners love to impersonate a genuine child of God.

LGBT sinners feel and believe that calling homosexuality a sin is harmful, can cause mental damage, and ruin a person’s esteem. Even to the point of psychological damage. They feel that to call homosexuality a sin is hateful or hate language, bigotry, discrimination, and it is defamation.

These terms, such as hateful, hate language, bigotry, discrimination, and defamation is about racial issues than with sin. Put my skin on for one second and you will easily, and quickly know the difference.

Really, they have misread the effects.

It’s called the fear of God. When there is a rejection of the fear of God, it turns into anger, wrath, and bitterness against God and His righteous standard. Their hostilities toward God further emboldens them to spew hatred because when you are told that what you are doing is against God’s will, in defiance, you try to tell God and His believers that they are wrong.

Again, sinners are not qualified to know, much less, understand the difference between good and evil.

Skin is skin, sin is sin.

LGBT sinners are in full court measure in attempting to use the Scriptures to justify sin. They, as well as sympathetic carnal believers, attempt to misuse, misappropriate, and misapply two passages of Scripture. Sympathetic carnal believers are renegade, rebellious, and are backslidden in their relationship with the Lord.

They are like some misguided people in human relationships.

On again, off again.

It is important that you understand that there is a difference between determining from the Word of God what sin is and criticizing a person with a critical eye. It’s also called “constructive criticism” (I call it destructive criticism) where a person looks at another person and see their flaws while being full of flaws within themselves.

To judge a person that has flaws while having flaws within him or herself is undoubtedly wrong.

The Lord, in Matthew chapter 7 gave the rules for this.

Verse 5 is the rule.

“First remove the plank (a stick of timber) from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck (a twig, splinter, or straw) from your brother’s eye.”

Notice the size of the objects.

In the eye of the person attempting to judge, there is a large object, meaning that there are many things in the person doing the judging. In the eye of the person being judged, there is only one very small thing to remove.

When you removed the stick of timber from your eye first, only then are you qualified to remove the twig, splinter, or straw from the eye of your brother.

How do you remove the stick of timber from your eye?

Stop doing what you are trying to get your brother to stop doing.

There is a Scripture that gives guidance as to how it is to be done among true believers of the Lord Jesus Christ. Please be mindful that this Scripture is addressed to those in the church that are true believers.

Sinners are not brothers or sister in the Lord.

Paul said in Galatians 6:1-2,

“Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.”

The Amplified Bible says,

“BRETHREN, If any person is overtaken in misconduct or sin of any sort, you who are spiritual [who are responsive to and controlled by the Spirit] should set him right and restore and reinstate him, without any sense of superiority and with all gentleness, keeping an attentive eye on yourself, lest you should be tempted also.”

Destructive criticism is when you set out to do harm or hurt another person. In other words, you intend to damage a person to make them feel bad, not help them get their life together and be a better person in Christ.

Also, there is a difference between intentionally harming someone and receiving chastisement from the Holy Spirit by the Word of God according to Hebrews 12:4-17.

Therefore, the use of Matthew 7 and Galatians 6:1-2 is reserved for believers of the Lord Jesus Christ because Jesus used the term “brothers” and not sinners of any category.

Author: The Minister's Crucible

The Minister's Crucible is designed to inform the Body of Christ about the inner workings of the ministry. The word Crucible from Latin, is "crux" where we get the word "cross" from. It also means a "metal container" where metals and other substances are melted or are subjected to higher temperatures, put to the temperature test. The Lord Jesus said "If any man desires to follow after Me, let him deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me." Let's take up our cross and follow Him.
