GCM Watch covered one aspect of this here.
But an advocate of so called romantic homosexual love, sans sex has been re-raising the moot issue in emails to several opponents of sexual immorality. His name is Brian and he claims to be a Christian from the UK. I received several of his emails claiming that there was no scripture condemning “same sex romantic love” therefore opponents of it are engaging in “homophobia”. My response to him that as a Christian, no thought, emotion or sentiment resulting from sinful behavior is acceptable to God. He told me he had seached the Bible intensely, over and over and could not find where it prohibited same sex romantic love.
I advised him to search more, without a presupposition.
I suspect he was framing his “search” in literalism (the exact phraseologyhe cited doesn’t exist in scripture).
Its a fairly disjointed accusation, but it looks like the brothers at Defending Contending have taken a little time to answer it.
Here’s a little of what they said:
The Lord also predicted that there would be people like you who deny the wickedness of homosexuality. In Romans 1 the Spirit through the Apostle Paul says to practicing homosexuals, “Though they know God’s decree that those who practice such things deserve to die, they not only do them but give approval to those who practice them.” In other words _____, you appear to be reading the Bible with your culturally conditioned glasses, reading into it your views. Unless you stop allowing the culture to determine your reality rather than the Bible, you will die. This is no small matter … for your 5 minutes in your political empowerment and glory you are exchanging your soul. I will earnestly pray the Lord open your eyes to this. The homophobic arguments won’t work because they are at root, disingenuous and manipulative soundbites. You are aware of the plain teachings of Scripture on the matter. You claim to have read the entire Bible and not seen this teaching. But the Bible could not be more clear.”
By the way, take a good look at the banner picture and you’ll see the horror of what we face and must constantly fight against for the sake of the precious flock of God.
