Church billboard: was Jesus gay?
………..I say Blasphemy and Heresy!!!
This church is obviously stating that Jesus, God himself may have been gay! To infer that Jesus may have been gay is to make a complete mockery of God and the bible. It means that Jesus who is God is imperfect and a sinner! That God is not Holy! This is Blasphemy against our Holy and Righteous God! Why then do they practice their so called Christianity?! In making such a statement they are saying that it is OK to be gay. That God accepts everyone as they are. This goes against everything the bible teaches us. God gave us the Ten Commandments in the old testament. But, these were not the only commandments that God gave us. The bible is replete with his commandments. That is why we must read and study the bible to know God’s words. He also told us to keep them:
John 14:15 “If you love Me, keep My commandments.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 “9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.” (NKJV)
Jesus also told us that he is the only way to the Father in Heaven:
John 14:6 “Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
If this churches beliefs were true, then the bible, God’s Holy Words would have to be false. Christianity would be false. And Jesus himself who gave his life to us for eternal salvation would also be a lie. Beware of false churches, Christs, teachers and prophets.
1 John 1:9:11 “9 Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds.”
Either the entire bible is true or it is false. We cannot pick and choose what suits us best for the life style we wish to live. The bible is God’s Holy Words that tell us how he wants us to live. How to worship him and follow his commandments. Many people believe that they can be saved and go to Heaven by just following some of the things the bible talks about. For example, good works, praying to God and appearing holy and righteous. It also sounds to me by reading their literature, that they believe there are many ways to Heaven. They also perform same sex marriages at their church. No where on their website could I find any information whatsoever on getting saved. One article on their website called “Saving Jesus” they state “In other words ‘blood of Christ’ is a metaphor for life, power, and love.” They do not believe that the blood that Jesus shed was to actually cover the sins of the world and give everyone of us everlasting life with the Father in Heaven!
Folks, this article is true! It is hard to imagine for some. Beware of false prophets and teachers! Beware of unholy churches! There are wolves in sheeps clothing waiting to deceive many. Not everyone who proclaims to be Christian or to know Jesus is or does. Test all things. Pray for discernment, enlightenment and the truth. Use God’s word as your basis in testing evil spirits.
I John 4:1-3 “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.”
Matthew 7:16-17 “You shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so, every good tree brings forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth bad fruit… “therefore by their fruits you shall know them.”
Romans 16:17-18 “Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple.”
1 Corinthians 2:15 “But he that is spiritual (or a spiritual man) judges all things, yet he himself is judged by no man.”
The following statement was copied from the churches website (bolded words made by gdk4god for emphasis):
Why does St Matthew-in-the-City need to give a modifier to the brand of Christianity it practices? Because contrary to our human tendency to make sweeping generalisations, being “Christian” does not tell us much about a faith community beyond the probability that Jesus plays a part in its beliefs.
Neither does denomination. Denominations are historical in nature. That St Matthew’s is Anglican tells you only how we are organised (we are under the authority of a bishop in communion with the Archbishop of Canterbury, worship using forms originally based on the English Book of Common Prayer, and have historical roots in the English Reformation, when politically and theologically it made sense to look Catholic and sound Protestant. We call this the “middle way” (via media).
Every Anglican church has its own “personality.” Some emphasize tradition and look more Catholic. Some emphasize preaching and Scripture and sound Evangelical or charismatic (Pentacostal). Some are visibly and audibly a blend and focus on the importance of reason.
But those differences have to do with what authority is most important to them: Scripture, Church Teaching and Tradition, or Reason.
Progressive Christians take all three authorities seriously but make none of them supreme. Progressives are more interested in spirituality than right belief or proper worship. The identity of Progressive Christians is centred in ethical living.
This so called “Christian” church is, if not already heading towards complete apostasy! “Progressive Christian”! What in the world?! Is this a new politically correct term? I say throw political correctness out the window! What matters is not what man thinks, but what God thinks!!! What this church is doing is demonizing the true Christian faith! Demoralizing Christianity and God! The times we now find ourselves in is one of evil and corruption. The evil among us is turning against the good. We as Christians must speak up and make our voices heard. The world needs us now more than ever before in history. We need to be the light that shines in a dark, dark world. Jesus said that the path that leads to salvation is narrow. We need to try and squeeze as many through as possible. That is God’s command. He wants to save as many people as possible.
The mind of man is finite and foolish. The mind of God is infinite and wise. There are many things which are a mystery to us. We think we know so much, yet we know so little. The day will come when God will reveal to us what he has in store. Make sure that you are on the right side history. Amen, Praise God! Hallelujah! Maranatha!!!
Jesus warned us of these times, the “signs of the end times”. This is one of the signs. God Bless You! May the Holy Spirit of God intervene and show you the truth! :-)
