1Cor 3:18 Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.
1Cor 3:19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.
It seems odd to me that God hasn't taken this fool out of the world, but that is why He said my ways aren't your ways and my thoughts aren't your thoughts!
And if I examined my own life closer, I'm sure there are many who have thought this same thing about me!
So Jesus. thank you this morning for saving me from what I deserve for my sins which is hell by taking my place on the cross and shedding your blood for my sins. Please help me to live my life each day ever mindful of your grace and your mercy, Jesus, that I might glorify you and God the Father. Amen
Not only does Elton John live a pervert's life in his own personal life, but he perverts the Word of God too. Obviously he only took smatterings rather than the whole counsel of God. No wonder he's an ignoramous.
‚ÄúHave you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‚Äėmade them male and female,‚Äô
Matthew 19:4-6 And He answered and said to them, ‚ÄúHave you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‚Äėmade them male and female,‚Äô and said, ‚ÄėFor this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh‚Äô? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.‚ÄĚ
Ephesians 5:25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her,
Elton is so right on that Jesus forgave even those who crucified him,but he also said repent from your sins and turn to God how we all like to squeeze the bible to suit our lifestyle. Anyone who adds or takes away from the words of this book of prophesy, God shall take away his part in the book of life, Revelation ch 22 vs 18- 19 spoken by the same Jesus who forgave all his enemies.
"Keep at the greatest distance from sin, and from playing with the golden bait which Satan holds forth to catch you; for this you have (Romans 12:9), "Abhor that which is evil, cleave to that which is good." When we meet with anything extremely evil and contrary to us, nature abhors it, and retires as far as it can from it. The Greek word that is there rendered "abhor," is very significant; it signifies to hate it as hell itself, to hate it with horror.
Sin is a plague, yes, the worst and most infectious plague in the world; and yet, ah! how few are there who tremble at it--who keep at a distance from it! (1 Cor. 5:6)‚ÄĒ"Don't you know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?" As soon as one sin had seized upon Adam's heart, all sin entered into his soul and infested it. How has Adam's one sin spread over all mankind! (Romans 5:12)‚ÄĒ"Therefore as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin, and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned." Ah, how does the father's sin infect the child, the husband's infect the wife, the master's the servant! The sin that is in one man's heart is able to infect a whole world, it is of such a spreading and infectious nature." (Precious remedies against Satan's devices. Thomas Brooks. Puritan)
Such a statement is, of course, as blasphemous as it can be. Think also about how stupid it is. There is no way that an intelligent person can read the Bible and come to the conclusion that Jesus Christ is a homosexual. So, Elton John is as stupid as his remarks are blasphemous.
There is a difference between Heterosexual fornication, and Homosexuality. Heterosexual sex before marriage is sin, but it is never called un natural. There is also a difference between someone struggling with homosexual tendancies, and someone who glorifies Homosexuality. The worst, is someone who commits Blasphemy by saying that Jesus was gay, in order to rationalize his own un natural lifestyle.
Two more "sex" sins left unmentioned are selfgratification and even looking at a woman with lust in your heart, which Jesus equated with adultery. In other words, every Christian, including myself, who bashes or hates the homosexual for his/her behaviour had best be weary of their own shortcomings. Otherwise, they risk being a "sexual sinner" as well as a hypocrite. However, I always say there is a world of difference between a repentant Christian struggling to change his ways and an unrepentant sinner demanding that God change His. Same type of sin with two different attitudes and outcomes. Last point, who really cares what Elton John has to say anyway? All of these celebrities with their pet causes and liberal agendas often lack wisdom or plain old booksmarts even from a secular standpoint. Elton John says X, Y, and Z...Kanye West says this and that...they say a lot of things, but it doesn't mean we should listen to them.
Do you think heterosexual sex is sin? Do you think pedophile sex is sin? Do you think homosexual sex is sin? Do you think beastiality sex is sin? Do you thing girlfriend boyfriend sex is sin? The Bible is clear... God thinks every sexual relationship other than one man, one woman married for life is sin. The problem is we've exchanged the glory of God for the glory of self. We've exchanged the truth of God for a lie. We've exchanged what is normal for what is abnormal. We've exchanged the Creator for the creature. God has given us over to accept and believe anything but the truth and the wrath of God is against us. My heart grieves for those who can not see the truth. Notice I did not say anything about homosexuality. My comments are about all forms of sinful sexual behavior. The fornicator and adulterer in the church is equally guilty of sin.
