Boltz shocks Christian community with homosexuality admission
There is shock and sadness in the Christian community over word that famed Christian music singer Ray Boltz has publicly announced he’s living a homosexual lifestyle.

"If this is the way God made me, then this is the way I’m going to live...I really feel closer to God because I no longer hate myself." Those were the words of Ray Boltz in an interview with the Washington Blade about his decision to engage in homosexuality. Boltz, a father of four who was married for 33 years before officially divorcing his wife this year, is well-known for his widely acclaimed songs "Thank You" and "I Pledge Allegiance to the Lamb."

The disclosure by Boltz was stunning news to former homosexual Greg Quinlan who is now with the New Jersey Family Policy Council. ...

I have never had any "supernatural experiences" save for the two or three which happened when i was beginning to enter into this sin. God sent tangible, dramatic warning signs that I should not "go there". It is too unsavory to repeat, but He absolutely interceded and dragged me out of the fire.

Some Sodomites & Gomorrahites are already "gone"; as some have ALREADY "given (themselves) over" to demonic/devilish lusts: unless a MIRACLE of REPENTANCE & FAITH in JESUS CHRIST From GOD INTERVENES !

Just goes to show how wrong the "Christian music business" is.This is another blight on this industry. Give me that "old-time religion" any day.!

I don't recall any of the hymn writers (many of them were anonymous ) being awarded Grammy's and suchlike,and they wrote mainly about God and not us as the modern songs do- it(Christian music industry) is quite simply an off-shoot of mammon, but it took me a long and painful time to see this.

GOD Said

Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.

Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death,

Be Warned!!!

Well, in the trash with my Ray Boltz tapes!
Sad, to say the least. He has gone the way of so many coming out of "celebrity christianity."

We attended concerts with Ray Boltz, Sandi Patty, and Michael English. Patty and English had adulterous relationships while they were entertaining the "Christians."

All are gifted singer/songwriters, but sadly are not grounded in the Scripture. I'm not sure about Boltz, but both English and Patty come out of charismatic churches with the emphasis on feelings, emotions, the senses. Patty repented, English has struggled with alcohol drugs, etc., a great fall from Grammy award winner.

At 55, Boltz has lost his mind not to consider how short his life is, even if he lives a "full" life. Of course, only the Grace of God can change a man.

May God bring him to repentance. I love the lyrics to "I think I see gold," and "Seasons Change."

Well, in the trash with my Ray Boltz tapes! He not only practices sodomy but he has been a practicer of deception. His wife of 33 years was decieved by him. He is deceived and will deceive others being deceived. He says he feels closer to God, but if he doesn't repent he will find out how far from God he truly is.

Unrepentent Sodomites 'Spin their Sin'.

Soon we will have the Metropolitan Church for Adulterers.

It would seem in this post modern age that if certain activities has the consent of all adults involved they are no longer seen as sin.

Well a wake up call for the sodomites and adulterers. YOU DO NOT HAVE GOD's CONSENT!

And if you do not repent and turn from your sin and put your trust in the one True Saviour Jesus Christ God has a very warm reception for you in his lake of fire as described so vividly in his Holy in fallible word.

That's the point. When you call these people homosexual or gay, you are making an excuse for their behavior because they were 'born that way'....

"commit certain sins" - Thats an interestng point you make??

As for your second point above, may I change the wording slightly.

""That's the point. When you call these people **SINNERS**, you are making an excuse for their behavior because they were 'born that way'.""

Provides a different perspective don't you think?

As I pointed out below I do agree with you from a Christian perspective we are to teach the Laws and Precepts of God which condemn all sin.

If we could ban all sin then we might be more sucessful with the sinners, coming to the Law of God and obeying.
But this is the reason for us being "strangers" on earth, and walking the narrow path.
Our task today is the same old task of preaching the way, the truth and the life to all who are our neighbours, regardless of their "certain sins."

By first preaching "...the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God" (Eph. 6:17), to unbelievers concerning the sin that they are publicly flaunting, it not only convicts them of their sin ("For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart" Heb. 4:12), it is the means by which they become believers. (Rom. 10:17)

ANOTHER inducement to repent is the stigma of a civil law that reflects the will of God.

"Whilst I agree with your statement generally, I would add that

The terminology of use as homosexual is simply identification."

All of us are born sinners. I am chief among them. Everyone is born with a tendency to commit certain sins but that is the crux of the whole argument. Good grief, if I acted on every desire and temptation that I was born with, I would at best have all kinds of diseases or be in jail. I'd probably be dead.

That's the point. When you call these people homosexual or gay, you are making an excuse for their behavior because they were 'born that way'. They want you and I to believe that they cannot help but do the things they do. But they can. They CHOOSE to commit sodomy and in the process kill innocent people with their disease and filth, recruit other men to be sodomites and worst of all, bring God's judgement on the nations that tolerate or accept their behavior.

Why do you think age old sodomy laws are being stricken down all over America? Folks have mistakenly bought into the idea that sodomites are 'born that way' and are just 'gay'. No, they are not. We don't allow murderers or rapists to run around commiting their sinful inclinations and we shouldn't allow sodomites to, either.

The part where Ray B. says he prayed for years and ask God to take it all away but God didn't.....he is calling God a liar. The Bible clearly states that if anyone comes to Him He won't cast them out. We as Christians need to hold Ray up in prayer to our Lord and Savior. What a sad, sorry, situation he is in.

Oxymoron: homo sexual.
By calling those who engage in sodomy 'homosexuals', you are giving credence to their argument that they are 'born that way'.
Whilst I agree with your statement generally, I would add that
"they are born that way" In that they are born sinners.
The terminology of use as homosexual is simply identification.
Whereas all are born sinners but the majority don't do the act, just
as the majority don't murder, rape etc.
Like adulterers and rapists they choose the sin because the natural
estate of man is in the dominion of sin. When the sinner is truly
converted then they come out from under that dominion, - still sinners
but directed by the grace and the Spirit, to fight against iniquity,
sin and transgression.

*Gal 5:17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.*
= Note here the implication of a lack of choice. Thus we should not seek to suggest a weakening of the power and dominion of the sinful estate of man, simply by his decision process. Sin controls man. Rom 7:18 "For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing" etc....

Oxymoron: homo sexual.

By calling those who engage in sodomy 'homosexuals', you are giving credence to their argument that they are 'born that way'. In other words, if they actually are 'homosexual', how can anyone deny that they are born that way and thus cannot help what they do? If these practitioners of perversion define the terms of the battle, they ultimately win the war (which they are very successfully doing). That's why even churches and Christians have become sympathetic to them in many cases. "Poor baby-let me help you with your struggle to 'come out of the 'homosexual lifestyle'". WHAT A BUNCH OF NONSENSE.

They are not homosexuals. They engage in sodomy by choice. They are sodomites. They commit unspeakable acts and then define themselves by their behavior, calling it a 'lifestyle'. And modern Christians and churches fall for this tripe! It's no more a 'lifestyle' than murder or adultery. It is a SIN. A vile, filthy, soul destroying sin. They are SODOMITES and they will not rest until you and I accept their filth.
