I haven’t had a high expectation of most gospel artists and their respect for God’s Word despite their popularity. But after hearing this from Tye Tribbett, I might have to take him off that list.
Tye does a great job of explaining Galatians 5:16 and exposing the lie many who accept gay christianity are being told by their leaders. To feel a sinful desire does not give you the justification to act it out. Nor does that feeling (s) mean that you are what you feel or emote (orientation). It is simply a sinful inclination of the flesh that must be repudiated. Gay christians are told the opposite: you are what you feel and God approves of it.
He calls it the “doctrine of feelings” and I agree with 99% of it. But would say that a person should never even justify feelings as they may lead to thought processes which could settle in the mind and eventually lead to acting sin out.
Be transformed by the renewing of your mind that you may prove what is the good and perfect and acceptable will of God.
What should you do with thoughts? As Tye mentioned, you should walk in the Spirit, which gives you the power not to fulfill the lusts of the flesh (whatever they might be). Additionally, we are to take proactive measures against the desires of the flesh by “casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ; and being in readiness to avenge all disobedience, when your obedience shall be made full.” 2 Corinthians 10:5-6 ASV
Note the use of the phrase “cast down” and it’s implications. When something is cast down as opposed to laid down it is more likely to be destroyed due to the forceful nature of the action against it.
