The uber weird, dead ancestor worshipping Unity Fellowship Church Movement is sponsoring a drag queen contest to spice up its 2010 Convocation. The Los Angeles based denomination is grasping for new lows in an effort to appear relevant to a group of people who are blind to God’s word.
Called “Bright Life: The Illumination”, the bizarre and dark entertainment event is being headlined by the winner of a reality TV cross dressing show.
But let’s look at it from God’s perspective. He has already spoken on this and the verdict is holy.
A woman must not wear men’s clothing, nor a man wear women’s clothing, for the LORD your God detests anyone who does this. ” Deuteronomy 22:5
Deuteronomy 22:5 strikes not only at the act of wearing attire of the opposite gender but also at the intent behind it. God’s holy requirements for his people meant that they were not to adopt, approve or practice the customs and religious rituals of inhabitants of the promised land. Notably, the religion of the Canaanites was infused with sexual perversion. It was one of the most sexually vile cultures of antiquity. From History World.org:
The Baalim and the Baalot, gods and goddesses of the Earth, were believed to be the revitalizes of the forces of nature upon which agriculture depended. The revitalization process involved a sacred marriage (hieros gamos), replete with sexual symbolic and actual activities between men, representing the Baalim, and the sacred temple prostitutes (qedeshot), representing the Baalot. Cultic ceremonies involving sexual acts between male members of the agricultural communities and sacred prostitutes dedicated to the Baalim were focused on the Canaanite concept of sympathetic magic. As the Baalim (through the actions of selected men) both symbolically and actually impregnated the sacred prostitutes in order to reproduce in kind, so also, it was believed, the Baalim (as gods of the weather and the Earth) would send the rains (often identified with semen) to the Earth so that it might yield abundant harvests of grains and fruits. Canaanite myths incorporating such fertility myths are represented in the mythological texts of the ancient city of Ugarit (modern Ras Shamra) in northern Syria; though the high god El and his consort are important as the first pair of the pantheon, Baal and his sexually passionate sister-consort are significant in the creation of the world and the renewal of nature.
The UFCM is carrying on the religious sexual idolatry of the Canaanites. And just like the Canaanites, its fairly clear this denomination has no intention of even considering what God says is detestable to him.
