The shock and awe reverberating through the Christian community at singer Ray Boltz’s homosexual announcement has prompted many to look again at homosexual ideology which Boltz seemed to embrace immediately. Some say we should just pray and not condemn Boltz. Others are congratulating him for being “honest”. How should we view what is surely not the last shocking announcement regarding prominent people in ministry who decide to openly declare their homosexuality?
Christian Theology posted a thought provoking commentary entitled “Ray Boltz is a homosexual: Shouldn’t we be glad that he’s happy?
Doug Eaton, the writer, makes three solid points as to why joining in Mr. Boltz’s (and other gays claim of) “happiness” is not a good thing for Christians. Summed up, Eaton says:
1. Boltz’s fall was a progressive move into sin.
2. Scripture is relegated to less or low priority in resolving sin issues.
3. Putting personal “happiness” above obedience to God has negatively infected the American church.
To congratulate Boltz and others who backslide into homosexual sin is dangerous for the church because it celebrates sin and rebellion. Reference 1 Corinthians 5.
“I for one will not be glad that Mr. Boltz has found a home in the homosexual lifestyle, even if he does claim to have a happiness he didn’t have before. Instead, I will weep for him to come home.”
I agree wholeheartedly. But people get ready, Boltz’s move will only embolden others. Its just a matter of time.
