EMBRACE GOD’S WORD

PASTORS WILL Often (in our desperation) beg people to embrace God’s Word. We have seen the Word of God change lives & set the captive FREE including our very OWN.

SO WE BELIEVE. WE believe in God’s Word and what it says concerning sinful lifestyles versus living a life as reflections of Jesus our Lord & Savior!!

We don’t DEMAND that those we witness & share this Word with to believe what we are sharing. We deliver the Gospel & appreciate the fact that some with accept it and others will not. We do not walk into the home of those who disagree and demand they change “OR ELSE!” We don’t threaten to ruin their lives if they don’t believe Gods Word. NOR do we hate them for not agreeing with our absolutely beliefs in Gods Word and what it defines as sinful. The opposite is true however!! We love people enough to share the POWERFUL freedom found in Jesus and living like He. Says we should in this crazy ride called “LIFE!”

Today as threats rise against BIBLE TEACHING PASTORS AND CHURCHES THIS IS WHAT WE MUST UNDERSTAND!!
SIN IS SIN!! And just because unbelievers don’t like what we believe, it will never GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO FORCE US TO ACCEPT WHAT WE BELIEVE GOD DECLARED AS SIN.
From gossip & slander to fornication and homosexuality – SIN AS DEFINED IN GOD’S WORD will not change for the sake of becoming more “TOLERANT!”

God is the ultimate and sovereign judge for sin. Homosexuality is sin by His order; it is not decided by public opinion or deceived/false clergy. Changing societies do not dictate God’s standards. Sin is defined by God for us in the Bible. It is the source for what God says is holy and righteous or sin and abomination. Hebrews 13:8 states that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever; he does not “go with the flow.”

God’s Word says that homosexuality is unnatural, a perversion, an abomination, fornication, vile affections, and a great sin against Him. He states any sexual act outside of marriage is adultery (hetro or homo sexual). Sex is to be between man and woman within marriage.

Is homosexuality a sin? What does this mean?
God’s design for natural sexual relationships is part of His plan. Homosexuality falsifies what God designed. Sin often means not only rejecting God but denying or rejecting how and why we are made. Though it may be considered acceptable by some today — even in some churches — it is not acceptable to God. And we need to take that seriously.

Sexual sins were rampant in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. (This is the origin of the word sodomy.) Despite warnings, they refused to repent. God destroyed those cities and it was recorded as a warning to all future generations (Genesis 18:20-21, Genesis 19:4-5, 2 Peter 2:6). Some additional scriptures on homosexuality are found in:
    Leviticus 18:22
    Leviticus 20:13
    Romans 1:26-27

The price paid for homosexuality and other fornications are told in:
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    Jude 6-7
    Romans 1:18

In spite of the growing secular humanist trend to think “it’s ok to be gay,” it’s not a righteous lifestyle. Most vocal Christians are NOT homophobic, but are trying to share Christ’s love for homosexuals and trying to keep them from horrific judgment. THIS IS WHERE OUR DESPERATION COMES FROM AS PASTORS!!

SO…. IS homosexuality a sin? Is there hope for forgiveness?

There absolutely IS HOPE for homosexuals. God can cleanse and purify ALL persons from sin. As many scriptures as there are that address sin, there are more that speak of forgiveness and redemption. He is able to give deliverance to any who sincerely desire true freedom and salvation. Such is demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 6:11 (KJV): “And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” This verse says “some of you were,” meaning they became PAST acts.

We are offered the empowering Spirit of God to help us turn from our sins. Coming out of drug addiction, homosexuality, pornography, or other sin isn’t always easy but God will provide the way. Christians are to “love” into the kingdom, those who desire repentance and to live by His natural plan.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again the third day. He desires that we repent and be forgiven of our sins by coming into a personal relationship with Him.

I PRAY IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER WE ALL STOP DEMANDING OTHERS CHANGE AND START ASKING GOD TO OPEN EYES AND CHANGE HEARTS.

IF YOU ARE AN UNBELIEVER I PRAY YOU ALSO STOP DEMANDING ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT WE SIMPLY CAN NOT COMPROMISE IN!

LETS AGREE TO DISAGREE AND STILL BE CIVIL OR KIND TO ONE ANOTHER!!!!
From politics to our beliefs in God or lack there of—- WE CAN (MYSELF included) ALL LIVE WITHOUT DEMANDING OUR OWN WAY & attempting to force others to accept what they can not compromise in.

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬7 NLT

God bless you all.
