Commentary By: Gordon King
As the world falls into a dismal abyss, parts of the church are following suit. Apostasy of the church is in full swing. I just received notice that a church known as “Reconciling United Methodist”, has a website which reposted one of my articles (United Methodist Bishop Rules That Lesbian’s Clergy Candidacy Can Proceed).
I have visited their website (http://www.rmnetwork.org/) and was a little shocked at what I found!
The following is a header at the top of their page:
“Creating space at the table for all God’s children.
Mobilizing United Methodists of all sexual orientations and gender identities to transform our Church and world into the full expression of Christ’s inclusive love.”
Sure, they speak of God’s love and grace. But they fail to mention that God calls unnatural relationships between men with men, and women with women as an abomination. Instead they embrace all sexual orientations and transgender identities into and a part of the church.
“You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
“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. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
“He who justifies the wicked and he who condemns the righteous are both alike an abomination to the Lord.”
“Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.”
The bible makes it perfectly clear that homosexuality is a sin. It is an abomination to the Lord. There is nothing confusing about what scripture teaches us on this matter.
For a church to profess Christianity and practice homosexuality is an abomination and apostasy!
This is a time of great “falling away” my friends, do not be deceived. The world is turning very ugly and evil. God Almighty is weeding out the tares from the wheat.
He shall give the anointing of His Holy Spirit to the true followers of Jesus Christ. Those who believe in Him and His word. Those who place their trust in Him and do not twist His words.
This is not the time to sit idle, but to put on the full armor of God! We are in a spiritual battle my friends. We fight not against flesh and blood, but against evil spirits, powers, and principalities!
I believe that we shall soon see miraculous acts performed by God’s people. That the Lord is about ready to pull His church away from the false church. This is why it is so important to stand close to God, walk with Him daily, and put Him first in your life! God is about to do great things with His children.
I feel led by the Holy Spirit to write these things. Actually, I don’t just want to write it, I want to yell it out loud! We are in a time of decision. Time is so very short. Continue to shine the light, spread God’s word and the gospel of Jesus Christ! The Holy Spirit is moving quickly throughout the globe, searching for those who will take a step, take a stand, and hold fast to what is true and righteous.
God loves us all and wants nothing more then for us to love Him back. But, He is also Holy, Righteous, and Pure. Practicing sin and professing to love God is like trying to serve two masters, it just doesn’t work. Jesus told us that we cannot serve two masters, only one. Homosexuals can become Christians, and I pray that they do. However, they must also turn away from their sin and repent. Then and only then will they be washed clean by the blood of Jesus. This is the truth, this is the word of God, this is wisdom.
Practicing sin of any kind is rebellion against God. We must all turn away from sin, repent, and ask God to forgive us. This is a vital part of being a Christian, not actively and knowingly living in sin and confessing to love God! We all sin and make mistakes, but if I were out murdering people and said that I were a Christian would this be the truth? If I was a practicing thief or child molester and professed to being a Christian, would this be the truth?
I love all people regardless of what sin they may be committing. I want all of them to repent and accept Jesus. Will this happen? Unfortunately no. It is a matter of our heart, our mind, and our soul. God knows each and everyone of us. He knows all of our thoughts and our motives. He knows if we truly love Him or not.
If we truly love God then we will want to obey Him. We will want to be obedient to His word and all of His teachings. This is being a true Christian. It takes time, learning and discipline to get to know God, to build a personal relationship with God. Keep your heart in the right place, and your mind on the things of heaven above.
God bless my friends, until next time! Maranatha!
