When the traditional churches searched for ways to renounce the Biblical stand against homosexuality, it was an opportunity for homosexuals to openly practice sin while attending and participating in church.
There is a reason which we will explore in a moment.
The stigmatization of being a homosexual and the shame of this sin appeared to have lifted. Many people in the church view homosexuality as a sexual orientation, and not a sin. It is to be understood that for years, homosexuals had to keep quite about their sin.
Hence, the term, “the closet.”
Make no mistake about it, homosexuality according to the Bible is sin. Just like cheating on your wife is a sin. Just like lying is a sin. Just like fornication is a sin. To exempt or exclude homosexuality and lesbianism is just slight of hand.
Then why is inclusion so important to gays?
For years, the church failed to address this issue in line with the Bible because a wide range of issues were already before the church and pastors.
Issues such as, heterosexuals shacking up outside of marriage. This is a polite term for two persons living together in fornication. A more colorful term would be “playing house.”
Issues such as….male pastors engaged in homosexuality, bisexuality, “sleeping with Sister Susie Q and Brother man at the same time.”
A wide range of promiscuous predator pastors would sexually take advantage of women, regardless of a woman’s emotional state. Because he had a lustful eye and heart, it was just another day at the office. Thousands of women’s lives would be destroyed because a pastor couldn’t remain faithful to his wife because he was a wanderer.
According to the powerful book, Betrayal Of Trust, pastors would fit the profile of either a predator or a wanderer.
On the other hand, according to Proverbs chapter 7, a wide range of immoral women would come to church just to “test” the waters to see if a pastor would take them on. These immoral women would wreck homes. End up pregnant and either have the “love child” to force the pastor to walk away from his wife, or have an abortion, and walk away in shame and disgrace.
Some might never darken the doorstep of a church again.
Music ministers would fornicate or engage in homosexuality, or bisexuality. With regularity, women in the church choir would be their victims or young boys would be molested. Music ministers would also be involved with porn and self gratification.
These uncontested issues left the church in a precarious situation.
The precarious situation is the fact that if the church is in sin, the all sin is permitted. If sin is already in the church, then the sin of homosexuality is permitted too. Therefore, I am allowed to sit at the table.
Inclusion without confrontation seemed like the best compromise.
What this means is that “everybody is saved. Come right on in.”
No need to renounce sin. No need to confront sin. No need to repent. No need to say the sinner’s prayer because we are not sinners anymore. Everyone is a brother and everyone is a sister. And if you want to be bisexual or if you are transgender through surgical and hormonal procedures, it’s alright. All are welcome because we are all God’s children.
In a nut shell, because Jesus died for everyone, no one has a right to exclude anyone because Jesus loved us all. You are automatically recognized as a believer. You believe in Jesus, right?
Well, come right in. You are a brother and sister in Christ.
As a side note about sister lesbians…
According to P4CM (Passion For Christ Ministries), in an interview, a former lesbian revealed the rules of lesbianism. Both women cannot be women. One has to play the male role.
The male role is called a “beard.”
Short haircut and male clothes, with strong male cologne, Or feminine cologne that has a strong masculine scent. In most union ceremonies, both cannot come in wearing a wedding dress.
I’m not trying to be funny. I’m just stating facts.
My good friend, Elder Raymond King of Securing Hope Ministry has a picture of two black men posing for their wedding picture. One is dressed in a regular tuxedo. The other homosexual who was much shorter, was in a semi tuxedo with a train like on a wedding gown.
Inclusion is important because there is no stigmatization, no sin, no shame, no remorse for two reasons…..
1. Remove harmful language including what the Bible says.
Inclusion is permitted because the “harmful language” of the Bible no longer exists. And because you are included, there is no reason for a loving God to send you to hell. You are not condemned. You are all God’s children. You are completely forgiven.
This is a lie.
When something is not declared a sin, there is no need to be forgiven for anything. It’s only when sin is pronounced that there is a need to ask for forgiveness. But because homosexuals are included, there is no need to be forgiven. Why? Because homosexuality is not a sin.
There is a major problem with this….
The God of the Bible never changed up.
And when a person is told that they are wrong based on the established Word of God, just because you disagree with the Word of God, it doesn’t mean certain passages of the Scripture automatically disappear or are rendered null and void.
2. All mankind are brothers and sisters in Christ because God loved us.
God demonstrated His love in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. To be a brother or sister in Christ, you must renounce the very thing that Jesus died for. The problem with inclusion without true renunciation and true repentance is that all they want is Jesus’ love. Just leave what I do in the bedroom, or in whatever room, off the table.
It’s none of anyone’s business. Including God.
The business of forgiving our sins begins at the cross of Christ. It ends on a sinner’s bended knees to the Lordship of Jesus, in total submission to the will of God to relinquish the life of sin.
This love is always there for all people, however, Jesus just didn’t come to spread His love and we just leave it at that. Jesus came to die for our sins and God raised Jesus from the dead so that we can have eternal life. Eternal life is not just about living eternally or living forever. It is about living as God created us to live eternally. Living like God is living according to His characteristics.
God is holy. So incorporating His consistent characteristic, which is done by accepting Jesus as Lord, and adhering to His living Word, allows a person to live eternally.
The only way to get into the kingdom is by being born again.
Two things happened at the death of Jesus.
First, sin was placed on Jesus and God condemned sin in the flesh of Jesus.
Second, the ordinance of death that condemned every man was removed, however, man must agree to the terms of redemption and be reconciled to God.
In condemning sin in the flesh of Jesus, the power to hold man to commit sin and the guilt (the awareness that you are guilty) of sin was removed. This is called justification. God knowing that you deserve death, released you from the penalty because Jesus took your place. However, you must relinquish the will to continue in sin.
You cannot agree to commit the very thing He sent His Son to release you from. It doesn’t make sense to tell you that you are free to go after you’ve murdered somebody just to go out and continue to murder.
The new birth gives us the power to rule over our lives never to commit sin, the very thing that Jesus came to set us free from.
Inclusion is just another crafty word that gives you permission to call yourself a believer without conforming your life to the Lord Jesus Christ according to the Word of God. A true believer lives a changed, transformed life without needing to sin ever again.
Inclusion allows for sin to be committed without being transformed into the Person of Jesus Christ. In other words, one is permitted to live any way they want to live.
Because the church lived in some measure of “inclusion” by living in adultery, fornication (porn), self gratification, bisexuality, lesbianism, homosexuality, and bestiality found it’s way at the table.
The removal of all shame and stigmatization is only found in Jesus. It’s found in renouncing all sin.
The closet is a dark place when the door is closed and no one sees inside. No one except the One who died for you to set you free. The guilt and shame of sin is what keeps many in the closet. However, we understand that even when you attend homosexual churches, you do feel some sort of freedom, but not the kind of freedom that you would fully experience when you come out of sin.
In many of you, you suppress the depression.
The desire to be accepted and loved by God is intense. The desire to do what you do while God accepts you is what all LGBT people want because they cannot separate the fact that sin is against the will of God. There would be no point for Jesus to die for sin if we are permitted to continue to sin.
But anarchy and to live in open rebellion against the God of heaven cannot, and will not happen. Just imagine heaven filled with sin all around the throne of God. The objective is not to push homosexual back into the closet. The objective is to show them that there is freedom in Christ from sin.
The noise of hatred must never drown out the true love of God. The noise of hatred must never drown out the truth of God. The noise of hatred must never cause you to shrink away from the love of God that is extended to every person.
Never let the pain of hatred that you have suffered from misguided people be the motivation to hate God and His Word. Sadly, reverse hatred because of a love for sin has being released to pervert the Scriptures. Reverse hatred has been the rallying call to label everything, including the Bible, as hate language.
To remove certain passages of Scripture, to attempt to rearrange the original context of the Scriptures, or changing the Scriptures to fit our life of sin cannot happen because Someone (God) is right, and all men is wrong.
God never asked you to like truth. God commands men everywhere to repent.
No one likes to repent and turn away from something that may be pleasurable, but when it comes to getting into the kingdom of God on God’s term, repentance is the least I could do. And if you choose not to repent, there must be a separation because sin cannot be allowed in God’s kingdom. God relentlessly hates sin and that’s His position.
The moment you accept the fact that the Word is right is the moment that true peace in Jesus comes.
