Thanks to Scripture Refiners Fire, GCM Watch was made aware of an incredible body of biblical research on homosexuality by David Root, Jr. of Layhands.com.
Its amazing what an honest study of the scriptures will produce when you allow them to speak and the Holy Spirit to illuminate the logos. David has done an outstanding job writing this and more than ever it is clear that there is no justification whatsoever found in any of the 66 books of the Bible for homosexual conduct. Not even for those who self identify as so-called “gay and celibate”.
Its sheer madness for the gay christian movement to stubbornly continue to uphold such an egregious lie just to please their flesh. Every possible mention (whether implied or explict) of homosexuality in the Bible speaks against the sin with the harshest, most condemning language possible. One wonders why people continue to soften the language and change the dire consequences of the sin to “save” homosexuals. If we change the language of the scripture no matter how harsh it is, will it actually save someone? I think not. Jesus said that only [his] truth can make us free.
Sin is deadly, vile and degenerative in all its forms. It is so pervasive and destructive in the human race that it took the blood of an innocent man to pay the price for freedom from it. And there was no one worthy enough to die except Jesus. Dumbing down sin and its consequences can be nothing less than a rejection of the precious sacrifice of our Redeemer’s blood. Yet, those who argue homosexuality isnt a sin do just that.
David shows how the flimsy argument that the Bible was only condemning temple idolatry and not “consensual, loving same gender relationships” is completely untrue.
Some homosexuals argue that Leviticus 18:22 (above) refers to cultic idolatry in the form of male temple prostitution, or that it refers to some other specific form of homosexuality rather than describing homosexual activity in general (our italics). Notice that the preceding verse (Leviticus 18:21, above) does refer to a form of idolatry, but it has nothing to do with male temple prostitution. It’s a huge stretch to use Leviticus 18:21 for making the argument that Leviticus 18:22 is referring to male temple prostitution. In fact, the very next verse (Leviticus 18:23, above) talks about having sex with animals, which has nothing to do with male temple prostitution. So the context of Leviticus 18:22 does not in any way indicate that cultic prostitution is the sin being described rather than general homosexual activity. In fact, we can prove this even further by looking at Leviticus 20:10-21 (above). In verse 13 we see the exact same reference to homosexuality, and the entire context of that verse relates to a variety of sexual sins. There is no idolatry in view here.”
What makes this so fresh is that David Root didn’t start out to prove some sort of predetermined thesis. He was simply responding to a question asked to him. Someone said their church was struggling over whether to ordain gay ministers and wanted to know “what does the bible say about homosexuality?”
David decided to intently study —without malice towards gays— and the result was his detailed exegesis of what the Bible says.
This is the type of honest exegesis that strikes fear in the hearts of the rebellious leaders of the gay christian movement. Knowing they cannot possibly refute the clear teaching of the scriptures, some are now informing their followers not to “argue the Bible”. In doing so, like the church leaders of the dark ages they prevent people from finding out the truth for themselves.
We’ll place a permanent link to in under our resources column. Please feel free to reference it when you are confronted with the many lies, distortions and mischaracterizations of scripture originating out of the gay christian movement.
