Open Letter From ABC (American Baptist College) Regarding The Invitation Of Yvette Flunder

It is typical of proponents of the sin of homosexuality to point out the Sexual Sins that occur in some places of the church to offset the reality. Not once in this letter by Marvin McMickle was there any Scripture used to support the sin of homosexuality or give practicing homosexuals Scriptural permission to commit sin.

Such as “For the Bible says “You are permitted to commit homosexuality because the Bible says so. And give the chapter and verse.”

Silly me…..there is no Scripture in the Bible that gives such permission.

Like all false teachers, the sin of homosexuality is based on their flawed knowledge that homosexuality is a behavioral or genetic failure, which is a demonic accusation that God is at fault.

Sorry Rabbit, tricks are for fools. Read Proverbs 14:15.

The purpose of the gospel of Jesus Christ is to free men from sin.

I expected a “Baptist College” to at least know this.

There is no sense in calling yourself a child of God when a child of God commit sin against the Word of God.

To make a person chase a false rabbit trail is one of the best tricks of the devil to deflect the point to begin with.

Yes, all sin should be discussed, however, when the sin of homosexuality is permitted in a Christian setting to “broaden” the thinking of its students, one thing is happening here. You want your students to accept that which God vehemently prohibits, which ultimately gives them a sense of permission to commit any and all Secret and Overt Sexual Sins.

It would be a great example to have Yvette Flounder come and tout her false doctrine in hopes that someone with Biblical integrity debate the sin of homosexuality, however, we smell the dead rats in the corner.

That’s why 1 John chapter 1 and chapter 2:1-6 is there.

When you read the letter, please note that “selective” Scriptures are used to attack the truth. Such as “He that is without sin cast the first stone.” You would expect a Bible scholar to read and apply the rest of that text in John chapter 8 of the woman caught in adultery. “Where are your accusers? No where, my Lord. Go and sin no more.”

Alas, this is what our Bible professors is teaching Bible students.

“Go, and sin some more.”

Completely ignore the teachings of Jesus…“suppressing the truth in unrighteousness and ungodliness.”

What did Jesus died for?

Nothing?

He shed His blood for nothing?

I’d like to see them say that Jesus died for our sins so that we could commit more sin.

Perish the thought.

Once again, the proponents of LGBT has infiltrated into the minds of people that Jesus came and did nothing. His blood, sacrifice, and resurrection means nothing. But for the true believer, we see that the grace of God came because of the obedience of Christ on the cross. To negate our sins while were yet sinners. To save a wretch like you and I. To redeem us from death and hell. To pay for the sins we’ve all committed and to set us free.

For all that continue in sin are slaves to sin and cannot stay in the house. But those that are free have a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.”

You are either free from sin or you are not. You are either a slave of sin, or you are not.

This letter greatly errs and sadly, this kind of letter is definitely a letter………..of the doctrine of devils and seducing spirits.”

Some will say that these are strong words but the hour requires strong prophetic and Scripturally correct words to counter and soundly defeat liberalistic political correctness and demonic expediency of the hour on the level of the prophet Elijah.

“Why falter between two opinions (sin of homosexuality or holiness) if God be God, follow Him. If Baal be god, follow him.”

Condemning Homosexuality: A Biblical View That Tye Tribbett Need To Know

First, read the statements from Tye Tribbett and then we will look at what the Bible said.

This is from S2SMagazine.com.

“Tye Tribbett shared his views on homosexuality in the April 2014 issue, and he wants to re-address statements made on the controversial issue.

“I don’t condemn homosexuals,” Tye clarified to Sister 2 Sister. “The Bible speaks against [homosexuality], but homosexuals—the person—I don’t condemn.

The award-winning, highly energetic gospel artist received some criticism for the views expressed in his Q&A with S2S Publisher Jamie Foster Brown.

Tye, who equated homosexuality with other things that can come natural to some, like a 2-year-old lying about eating a cookie, said he intended to make a hypothetical comparison.

While some were outraged by Tye’s comments, which many found compassionate towards those with same-sex tendencies, others appreciated his point of view.

Wrote one S2Smagazine.com user: “[T]hank you for your comment. As a BELIEVER, I was delivered from the homosexual lifestyle, also from sexually immoral relationships outside of marriage. YES, we are…calling it love. That is not love. WHY IS EVERYONE so afraid [to say] what GOD says about certain behaviors?”

Let’s be very clear.

The moment we fail to use Scripture, quote Scripture, and apply Scripture, we twist the Scripture to suit our thinking.

First, God is the Author of the Bible.

Jesus is the Word of God, the Author and Finisher of our faith.

Isaiah 55:8-9 says,  “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.”

So the Lord God is telling man that My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor your ways My ways.”

In other words, you do not accept My thoughts, or My ways.

We accept and push our ways and thoughts and outright reject and suppress His thoughts and ways.

If we did accept His thoughts and ways, then we would quote what His thoughts are and walk in His ways.

Then we would tell others what His thoughts and ways are without hesitation.

Here is the thoughts of God on homosexuality.

Leviticus 18:19-29 “Also you shall not approach a woman to uncover her nakedness as long as she is in her customary impurity. Moreover you shall not lie carnally with your neighbor’s wife, to defile yourself with her. And you shall not let any of your descendants pass through the fire to Molech, nor shall you profane the name of your God: I am the Lord. You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.

“Do not defile yourselves with any of these things; for by all these the nations are defiled, which I am casting out before you. For the land is defiled; therefore I visit the punishment of its iniquity upon it, and the land vomits out its inhabitants. You shall therefore keep My statutes and My judgments, and shall not commit any of these abominations, either any of your own nation or any stranger who dwells among you (for all these abominations the men of the land have done, who were before you, and thus the land is defiled), lest the land vomit you out also when you defile it, as it vomited out the nations that were before you. For whoever commits any of these abominations, the persons who commit them shall be cut off from among their people.”

Romans 1:18-32 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead,

so that they are without excuse, because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man — and birds and four- footed animals and creeping things.

Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil- mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.”

Like Paul Washer said, To those that say “Judge not! I say Twist not!”

Don’t twist the Scriptures to fit what you think because what you think is not consistent with what God said.

The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah is further evidence that God poured His wrath out to underscore His deliberate holiness.

Sin will not go unpunished, otherwise God is not just. Besides, He created us and not we ourselves (see Psalm 100).

The next question that we must ask ourselves is that did God change His mind?

Psalm 119:89 says, “Forever, O Lord, Your word is settled in heaven.”

Malachi 3:6 says, “I am the Lord, I change not.”

Matthew 24:35 says, “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.”

Hebrews 6:17-18 says, “Thus God, determining to show more abundantly to the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath, that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us.”

James 1:17 says, “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning.”

So because the Bible consistently showed that the mind of the Father and the mind of the Son didn’t change.

So why do we attempt to change God and His Word?

The answer is found in Isaiah 55:8-9.

HOMOSEXUALITY IS NOT NATURAL.

Paul, by the Holy Spirit said, “For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.”

If homosexuality was natural, then God would have created males to suit one another in the Garden, and a woman would not have been necessary. Then homosexuals would be exempt from the judgment and wrath of God. They would also be exempt from the Gay Man’s Disease now called HIV/AIDS.

SIN WAS CONDEMNED IN THE FLESH OF JESUS.

Romans 8:3 says, “For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,”

Get this. On account of sin, He (the Lord God) condemned sin the flesh. The wrath of God was poured out on His Son. The Perfect God, took sin and placed sin on the Only Perfect Man able to handle the sin of the whole world.

SINFUL MAN IS CONDEMNED ALREADY.

JOHN 3:18-21 says, “He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

For everyone practicing evil hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be clearly seen, that they have been done in God.”

It is the Scriptures that tell us that man is condemned when they do not believe, therefore, we must tell man that based on this Scripture, because they do not believe on the Lord Jesus, they are already condemned. If they should say that they believe but practice homosexuality, just point them to Matthew 7:21-23 and 1 John 3:6. Sin is lawlessness and the only payment for the penalty of sin is the Body and Blood of Jesus. Then they must repent, be born again by the Holy Spirit, and walk in unquestioned, devoted obedience to the teachings of the commandments of Jesus.

As long as Tye Tribbett fails to use the Scriptures as explained above, he (and sympathizers of sin) do “greatly err, not knowing the Scriptures.”

The Power To Do Without Solo Sex

There are many males and females in the Body of Christ that cannot do without solo sex called masturbation.

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:12 “All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.”

The reasons range from, “There is nothing in the Bible that says that I can’t masturbate,” “I’m on a long distance trip away from my wife, I got to “get off” before I go crazy.”  to “My spouse is sick and I need to let off a little sexual tension.” “To keep myself from fornicating, committing adultery, or get a girl pregnant, or get an STD, I masturbate.”

While it is true that there is no specific verse of Scripture that says that we can’t masturbate, equally, there is no Scripture that says that you are permitted to engage.

A lot of people have accused proponents of no masturbation that we engage in extra Biblical standards. I call it “elasticity of the Scriptures.”

Meaning that we’ve stretched or added to the Bible to prohibit the practice of masturbation.

I’ve been accused of this as well as other men and women of God that broke free from masturbation.

The grace of God operates in us as we obey the Word of God to abstain from every appearance of evil.

Just as people will read what I’ve just said, they will say, where in the Bible does it say that masturbation is evil?

No where in the Bible does it say that masturbation is evil.

But we know that selfishness is evil. And masturbation is not about selflessness but it’s about selfishness.

If you cannot control yourself, then you are selfish. Right?

This question requires a Yes or NO.

Is masturbation about selflessness or selfishness?

Yes or No?

Then why did I say that it is evil?

Aren’t you “stretching” the Scriptures?

Genesis 2:24 says these words….“Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.”

When it comes to solo sex, you are having sex with yourself. God created Eve for Adam. There is no where in the Bible where we see that Adam masturbated. If that were true, that Adam masturbated, then Eve, or the body of a woman wouldn’t be necessary.

Also, look at what the Lord said in Genesis 2:18.

“And the Lord God said, “ It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him.”

Solo sex is a sex act alone. You are fantasizing sex alone or by yourself. So because God said it is not good that man should be alone, it doesn’t take calculus to figure it out.

Masturbation would be necessary if God never intended to make Eve for Adam.

Since God made Eve for Adam, masturbation is not necessary.

Let me point something out.

Many masturbators will argue that there is nothing wrong with occasional masturbation, or experimental masturbation. Usually proponents of masturbation will defend rigorously the solo sex act.

Masturbators will create reasons to defend masturbation but the ultimate undeniable reason is……

Lust in the heart.

In reading several books on this subject, there are many men that use porn to increase the arousal to perform solo sex. As one man of God put it, “You do not need porn to masturbate, I got porn all in my head.” All you need are fantasy or thoughts, and urges and impulses to get you going. In one book called “Every Young Man’s Battle,” a young man said “I find it very difficult to masturbate without thinking lustfully.”

Then again, you may not have to have a beautiful woman in your mind to masturbate.

You could lust after you.

You could have an infatuation of your own genitals and the way you bring yourself to orgasm and or ejaculation.

Pastor Roger Jamison, pastor of Sword Of The Spirit Tabernacle in Brooklyn, NY shared that masturbation is the stepping stone or “door to the beginning stages of homosexuality.”

As a man, you are doing you.

I know that MSM is a man having sex with another man but what is masturbation?

You having sex with you.

Therefore, masturbation is a selfish, obsessive fetish of your genitals.

Paul said in 2 Timothy 3:1, “…For men will be lovers of themselves.”

The word “themselves” means “fond of self.”

The Amplified says “self centered.”

That’s exactly what masturbation is.

Self centered.

Besides, it’s all about you “getting off.”

So if the Lord made a woman that you are to marry to have sex with, is there any justification for masturbation?

Listen to what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 7:9 (AMP).

“But if they have not self-control (restraint of their passions), they should marry. For it is better to marry than to be aflame [with passion and tortured continually with ungratified desire.]”

If masturbation were permitted, why didn’t Paul say, “But if they have not self control, they should masturbate. For it is better to masturbate than to be aflame…”

So the remedy of masturbation is to get married.

Paul said in 1 Corinthians 7:2 “Nevertheless, because of sexual immorality, let each man have his own wife, and let each woman have her own husband.”

Sex is designed by God to be shared, not for selfish solo sex.

There will be disagreement, and that is unavoidable, but the disagreers have yet to provide one Scripture to justify their position to justify masturbation.

I, and many others have given Scripture to remedy the need for masturbation. Yet, we have yet to see proponents of masturbation to present Scriptural justification to masturbate.

For instance, we expect to see from the proponents of masturbation the following…..Masturbation is justified because the Bible said……

But we know that we won’t see that.

Instead, we get…..“The Bible said nothing about not masturbating.”

Just because the Bible is silent it isn’t permission.

If something like sex was designed by God, then it will follow the Manufacturer’s Manual for use.

Jesus mentioned two things. Eye and hand.

Matthew 5:29-30 “If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell. And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.”

How many brothers and sisters in Christ will testify that they use their hands (female use of sex toys) to masturbate and they use their eyes to search for a sexual object to meditate on sexually?

Here, the Scriptures gives us the blueprint for sexual activity within the confines of the “one flesh” principle according to Genesis 2:24 and 1 Corinthians 7:9.

You can’t be one flesh by yourself. You need an opposite partner to become one flesh. Otherwise, you are in violation of what God originally intended in sex.

Again, if masturbation were justified by God, there would be no need for Eve.

Pretend sex would negate the necessity of a woman.

Therefore, when it comes to masturbation, “you are brought under its power.”

When you are brought under its power, it means that it has control over you. The way that the flesh is designed, according to Dr. William Struthers in his book “Wired For Intimacy,” a man is “wired” for sex. He also said that “porn hijacks the brain.”

When you are brought under its power, at any moment, you can think about sex and the body of a man is engaged until sexual release takes place. A man that is under control will never give themselves over to his or her sexual urges and impulses. One of the fruit of the Spirit is “temperance” or “Self control.”

If you cannot stop, you are not under control.

In fact, even when you occasionally masturbate, you are not under control. Your lusts or animal impulses is managing the urges and impulses.

Complete control demands that you do not give yourself over to your urges and impulses.

The discussion of masturbation is still a taboo subject among men. One person in my secular employment said out of his mouth, “man does it all the time, it’s no secret.”

And he is right, Yet, to discuss it in the open is still a secret.

Why?

It is embarrassing. The conscience is still offended. Why is the conscience offended? It is a clear indication that you are doing something that the body is not designed to do as far as a solo act is concerned. Nonetheless, a man will engage in masturbation because he can’t control his urges and impulses the way Jesus did when He walked the earth. That’s why He gave us woman. We select a female to marry and we could have all the sex we want.

However, we have come to see that even while married, a married man is out of control. Having sex with his wife, still seems like it isn’t enough.

Why?

Proverbs 27:20 gives us the answer.

“Hell and destruction are never full, so the eyes of a man are never satisfied.”

The sexual process always begins with what’s in the heart of a man. Then he goes into search mode with his eyes. His body then makes provision to fulfill that lust in the heart, and sin, when it is finished, brings for death (see James 1:14-15). If you ever wonder why you have that “condemned” feeling after you’ve masturbated, it’s because you sinned against your body.

Look at what Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:18. “Flee sexual immorality. Every sin that a man does is outside the body, but he who commits sexual immorality sins against his own body.”

I trust that after reading this that you would seriously consider that God is looking to help you overcome solo sex.

If you are single or married, and you are struggling to stop masturbating, there is some help on this blog page. Sexual Addiction Recovery.

Usually when you are participating in the practice of Secret Sexual Sins and you fight to preserve something that you know is wrong, it is a clear indication that you are convicted. Otherwise, you wouldn’t argue to fight for it.

If you feel condemned and you want to argue about continuing to masturbate, I understand your position. Having been involved in masturbation for 33 years with relapse after breaking free and for 10 years of these 33 years involved with pornography, I too, argued until I came clean and asked the Lord to help me overcome masturbation.

There is help. You just got to be bold enough to break free and break loose from the arguments to continue to masturbate.
