The devil is at work in Lynchburg Virgina promoting "gay rights". Fox News has published a story about SoulForce, a homosexual activist group, holding protests at Liberty University. Several of the activists were arrested because they trespassed on the property of Liberty University (they promote "rights" while breaking the law). The story can be found here. So the devil is at work in Lynchburg? This time his mouth piece are spiritually dead homosexual activists. Some of these folks say some interesting things. What I want to do here is briefly examine some of the things SoulForce members (etc) are claiming in their Lynchburg protest. ==That is a lie from the pit of hell itself. Infact it is blasphemy. The Bible knows nothing of a "homosexual child of God", nothing at all. What does the Bible actually say? What does GOD HIMSELF actually say? This person says that Liberty teaches that homosexuality is "sick and sinful" and they are 100% correct. Why does Liberty University teach this? Because it is what God has said. Let's first deal with the "sick" portion. The Bible says that homosexuality is "unnatural" and "degrading". "For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error" (Rom 1:26-27) Since these sinful people had rejected the knowledge of God in favor of sin and idolatry (Rom 1:18-24) God turned them over to their sin. God says that their homosexual behavior is unnatural and leads to physical disease (see also Prov 5:11). So this person is right Liberty does teach that homoseuxality is sick. Liberty teaches this because that is what the Bible says. Now lets deal with the sin part. The Bible is clear that homosexuality is sin. The Old Testament refers to homosexuality as an abomination (Lev 18:22, 20:13). The New Testament states that it is "error" (Rom 1:27) and that those who live as homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God (1Cor 6:9-10). This last fact seals the deal. Those who live as homosexuals will not enter heaven unless they repent of their sin and turn to Christ. If they refuse to do that they will inherit the lake of fire (Rev 21:8). These homosexual activists are giving up eternity for temporal pleasure and "rights". Yet Christ calls us to give up our lives and our so-called rights and turn to Him. To take up the cross and follow Him. To die to ourselves and live to Him(see Jn 12:25-26, Matt 10:37-39, 16:24-26, Lk 9:23-26, etc, etc). You can't live in sin and claim to be a child of God (1Jn 3:9-10, Gal 5:19-21). In fact God, through Paul, warned: "For this you know with certainty that no immoral or impure person or covetous man, who is an idolater, has an inheritance in the Kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one decieve you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience." Eph 5:5-6 The leaders of these homosexual rights groups are decieving people right into hell itself when they claim that a person can be a homosexual and a Christian at the same time. It is deception, it is demonic, and it is a lie. These people need to turn to Christ. They need to repent of their sin and place their faith in Christ. This is not only true of homosexuals it is true of all sinners. For this is the good news that all who are sinners (Jn 3:14-16) can be saved and brought into the family of God if they will repent and turn to Christ (1Cor 6:11). The devil is at work trying to keep folks away from the good news. We must oppose the devil and his dirty tricks and bring people to Christ. In Christ, Martin.
