Well, we need to take out some time and help someone who is sinking in a quicksand of progay christian ideology. His name is Brandon. He did not like what GCM Watch said about Tonex. The comment however was chocked so full of inconsistencies, half truths, lies, and distortions of scripture that my heart went out to Brandon. Especially because he says he is a musician who “studies religious theology”. I’m not sure if that means he studies the Bible, but nonetheless I am appealing to our mature, seasoned saints to help Brandon understand the error of his thinking. Perhaps then, he will have a metanoia experience and serve the Lord in with a pure heart. You may address any portion of his comment you feel “led” to deal with. Thanks!
I have sat here and read many of the comments and the article. I am going to reply to this as a person who studies religious theology. As a person of color, A christian and a LGBT identified Christian and a musician. To start with I find it amazing how we consider ourselves as followers of Christ. Now being a person who studies theology never once do you hear Jesus talk about or condemn homosexuality. Yet we call ourselves followers of Christ. That’s the first problem Now I have read and seen you all have taken bible scriptures and have thrown it in our faces and expect that to be the end of it. You pick and choose what it is you want to read and say. I have yet to see any of you people who have taken these clobber scriptures and use all of the context. When you have taken all the context then your at the next level for discussion. Next speaking as a person of color, I find it interesting that you have not remembered that we have struggled against a long period of prejudice and hatred. Do you really think as people who have struggled to get rights, to be treated equal and with respect. Do you honestly find yourself any different than the people who hate people of color. So to condemn homosexual people I just find that very odd. As a christian you focus mostly on the judgement of God. Now to back up and correct the one person earlier who spoke of Bishop Carlton Pearson and Dr. Yuvette[sic] Flunder they teach exactly what Jesus taught. We should not worry about the judgment of God but the Grace and Mercy of God, as well as Gods love he has for every person everything every being. If most of you could understand that it is not about us. It is not about who loves who and who is doing. It is all about worshiping and serving God. When we as a people can get off the the petty things and realize it is about Gods love. We will not have to care about what someone else is doing because we will be more focused on Gods love and loving each other. Doing that will cover all of the thing. REMEMBER Jesus taught us love. I have yet to see you scripture clobbers talk about the love of God. Lastly I will talk now as a musician. I have seen you all talk about not to promote Tonex because of his life style. Well is this the case many of your churches will not have good music. Most of church musicians are gay. Most of you people in the church especially the pastor knows it. You won’t see that pastor get rid that musician unless they cause a scene. The pastor knows about the lifestyle but is not willing to loose his members because of bad music. Most of these pastors will pimp these people for their benefit and use their gifts. So next time you think about not promoting a musician because of their lifestyle. You remember that most churches run the music department by gay men who write that music and teaches the music that gets people in your church. Remember that!!! Now what we need to praying for is not for god to change somebody. We need to pray first that we as Identified Christians grow stronger in God. That is what we NEED to be doing, there would be much less DRAMA if we could do that. Next as we grow in God we need to get a reality check of what it is Jesus was teaching us on how to live. If you all don’t know Jesus has never turned away from anyone, nowhere in the bible will you see that. Some how you bible clobbers have missed that fact. I say this as a closers, don’t let ignorance (which means lack of knowledge) prevent you who identify as Christians from the important thing which is Gods love for us, and by Gods grace (which means we get what we don’t deserve) and Gods Mercy( which means we didn’t get what we do deserve) Don’t let this prevent you from the real reason as to why we serve the God we serve and have the Faith we have as Christians. Peace with you will, Blessings Brandon
