Jesus warns christians, particularly those in authority about leading 'little ones' into sin. If you are saying that Homosexulaity isn't a sin you are giving the green light to young christians to act out unatural lusts and fantasies. You are leading them into sin.
"Now where, I wonder, is the song and dance about the other abominations"?
The fundamental difference between the homosexual abomination and the other sins described as abominations is that the liars, adulterers and thieves are not trying to say their sin is not sin but is a blessing from God. Thieves and adulterers are not jockying to be priests and bishops like the sodomites are.
That is why many christians such as me are taking issue with 'unrepentent' homosexuals who claim to be christians and are trying to change points of references such as the bible.
The whole point of being 'Born Again' is that we die to self and become a new creation in Christ. What 'Christian sodomites' do is they leave it on the side of the Baptism pool with their robe and towel and put it back on when they come out.
You are a disgrace to defend same sex relationships in any form, it is dishonest to reduce the debate down to a word lost in translation. If you read the bible in its entirety it is quite obvious that God ordains male and female relationships.
Adam & Eve, Abraham & Sarah, Mary & Joseph...Christ will come back to claim his bride not his groom!
Then there are the Leviticus references along with Romans and Corinthians.
Christians do not treat homosexualty more seriously than any other sin, what many do as I do is take issue when the 'liberals' say that it is not sinful but a gift of God that is not objectionable to God. That spin the sin line is repugnant and an offence to the Gospels.
You do as many scholars do, they take the bible back from the ley person saying that we misunderstand because of the translation. You want to reverse the reformation and return the scriptures back to the exclusive property of the theologians, back to the Latin and Greek.
What you don't consider is the Holy Spirit in this, he guides and enlightens us and leads us to the truth.
Sodomy is sin irrelevant to the gender of those involved. You and your ilke shift the scriptures to accomodate modern thinking. God's word endures forever!
It is unbelievable how the Anglicans are squandering their inheritance.
Those courageous martyrs going to the flames rather than denigh the Word of God. My only comfort is that God will not allow his name to put to shame.
The sodomites and their supporters need to be purged from God's church, Williams is a poor shephard he has allowed the ravenous wolves dressed as clergy to be parish priests where they teach all manner of heresies and lead the flock away from truth.
God knows his own and will not allow them to be stolen from him. The Holy Spirit will lead the elect back to the truth, leaving these sodomite run parishes to descend into ghettos of filth and vanity.
It's a little ironic that the catholics turn out in force, petrol bomb and riot against God fearing Protestant marches but go shopping and drink Cappucinos while sodomites mock and taunt God through their pathetic attempts to sanitise their filth through 'PRIDE'.
Let's all take our lead from the Free Presbytarians.
Great Sermon! I listened to this sermon to find out if Pastor Paul Washer was encouraging rap music. He was just defending biblical truth. For that reason I truly enjoyed this sermon. However I do not agree with the fact that some christians are using rap music to preach the gospel. Knowing the origins of Hip Hop, I will go as far to say that it has no business in the Church no matter how biblical these rappers may be, for the same reason that strange fire should not be presented to a Holy God. Remember that Aaron's sons were killed for doing so (Leviticus 10: 1-3) We should not use the world's music to reach the lost or adapt the gospel to this culture. They will come to Jesus through the preaching of the Gospel or they will not come at all. For those who wants to know about hip hop and its origins, visit www.exministries.com and you'll understand the reason why I make this statement. The pastor is G. Craig Lewis and he has done a phenominal job at explaining what really goes on in Hip hop and why christians should never embrace it. God bless you all
A Warning Siren The enemy is within the christian community, they are attempting to dilute and graft the gospel onto the world. The 'Mantra' of these so called christians heading up the emerging church is one of 'making church relevant to...', 'using a language that they understand' etc.
They do not have faith in the transforming power of the word of God, they feel they have to sweeten the bitter medicine. This emerging church is around us, it isn't being franchised from above, it is being orchestrated from within.
It is like a rehashed romanist ritual; sounds, lights and smells, it is all about experience, emotionalism, it is a powerful deciever. It is a merging of all of the contemporary and ancient christian heresies. Protect your young people from it, it is as dangerous for them as any class A drug and just as heroin will lead them to a place of emptiness and despair!
It is refreshing to hear an Anglican state that the only way to God is through Jesus Christ!
The Anglican church has been corrupted by Liberal women wannabes, ordained and manipulating their way into teaching posts in Anglican Bible Schools, think tanks and ecumenical & multi-faith initiatives. They have their eyes on the top, waiting for the bishops to die, it want be long before they are dressed in purple wearing mitres and living in the Bishops palaces, being waited on by a male house keeper.
All that and I haven't even mentioned the sodomites vicars greasing their way to Canterbury or the High Church of England Catholic Brigade wwith their pathetic Corpus Christi parades and pilgrimages to Walsingham.
Cramner and ridley and all the refromation martyrs blood will not be in vain when our Lord comes again!
You sound a little bitter, remember it was the reformers who freed our faith from the superstitious, pagan embracing catholics. They still cling to tradition, giving it equal authority alongside scripture.
I reject Rome and all its new found 'protestant' friends. They are not protestants they are niave cultural christains marching blindly back into captivity. God's will sets us free now as it did in the 15th and 16th century.
Lisa I am astounded that you write off the reformation. It would do you well to remember so many faithful followers of Christ were burnt and persecuted for following scripture and rejecting the man made doctrines of Rome.
Remember that in revelations the martyred saints cry out to Christ for justice.
By the way Lisa what is your stance on women in ministry?
