In his day Christ constantly rebuked the religious leaders for their hypocrisy and for misleading people from acknowledging that God was doing something new in their time. While clinging to the old revelation they were leading their followers down the path to hell.
Looking at the scribes and Pharisees eye to eye, Christ rebuked them with what may have seemed a harsh message for his time and what may soon become an illegal message in our time. Let’s see.
Openly rebuking the leaders of the massive temple worship system of his day would be the equivalent of scolding both the leaders of today’s apostate church and just about everyone involved in politics from the President to the local politician.
One recent example is gubernatorial candidate Scott Lively of Massachusetts. Up east in the most liberal state in the Union, candidate Scott Lively openly declared that he would never do anything to further the homo-agenda, especially as it pertains to the indoctrination of children.
He was booed and scoffed at by an audience of about 150 people attending an LGBT forum to address what candidates would do to help the “gay agenda” if they were elected. The meeting held at the Boston Public Library was televised for everyone in the state to see.
The reason he was right reveals one of the most important principles in the entire Bible. In fact, any modern attempt to dismiss what is right and Godly can be scrutinized by the principle revealed in Christ’s rebuke of the religious leaders of his day; that also includes the motives and the entire agenda of the homo-lobby.
There are six clearly defined aspects to Christ’s rebuke that fully apply to the entire “gay is OK” movement.
1. What makes anyone, religious, political or otherwise a “child of the devil” as Jesus said? The first principle or cause is the washing away of the basic message of the revealed will of God (the scripture) and replacing it with what is known as the doctrines of devils:
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.” (1 Tim 4: 1)
That they have been deceived is conveyed quite clearly by the term “seducing spirits.” It may seem like political correctness, diversity and inclusiveness, but in reality it is just demonic influence at its peak. It is a demonic deception that has come into its own time; nothing reveals that more than the phrase, “in the latter times.”
2. The error of all LGBT communications is simple – it is a teaching, an agenda and a demonic doctrine of men. It is a cunningly devised fable (2Pet 1: 16) placed against the revealed will of God regarding homosexuality.
As Jesus rebuked the Pharisees he noted their error was first, that they were teaching what we might call man-made doctrines, not the will and counsel of God, to wit:
Ye hypocrites, well did Esaias prophesy of you, saying, this people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men. (Mt 15: 7–9)
In the great debate called “God said – man said,” only losers will take the side of modern man as these last days approach. The motives and agenda of the LGBT are a poor substitute for the authority of the Living God.
3. This one is almost too easy. Christ rebuked the Pharisees for founding their teachings on the “lusts” of their father (the Devil). What would he say about the entire LGBT movement which is obviously based on nothing but lust?
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. (Jn 8: 44a)
We have all heard about the “love” angle and how it is supposed to sanctify the homosexual union, but if you have ever witnessed a gay pride parade or a southern decadence celebration, that notion is quickly dispelled. Lust is all there is.
4. Pharisees were supposed to represent only the truths of God to those they shepherded, but by the time Christ appeared they had added so many man-made interpretations and explanations of God’s basic message that the truths were shrouded in obfuscation and complications. The priests were using the scripture to rifle widow’s houses and extract money and allegiance from those they were leading.
The chief tool of their deception was lying. In their own time it could be said that they had become “liberal,” but at the least, they had become self-serving. That they knew exactly what they were doing, is revealed, because Jesus called them liars. They were fully aware that the scripture had been corrupted. Modern man not only corrupts the Bible message even further, but now dismisses it entirely.
Christ said they had adopted Satan as their father: “…He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.” (Jn 8: 44b)
The entire LGBT movement is firmly based on a blatant anti-Biblical and anti-Christ lie from the pits of hell. The lie is simple. God did say homosexuality is an abomination and he has not changed his mind:
“God is not human, that he should lie, not a human being, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?” (Nu 23: 9 NIV)
5. Jesus would have to stand all day long calling out the lies of the Pharisees, instead he mentioned a few of their worst lies and called them a generation of vipers.
The biggest whopper ever produced by LGBT is without doubt the “born this way” argument. Without a stitch of scientific evidence this has to be one of the greatest lies of the twenty first century. It has been proclaimed and now it’s the, ‘thus sayeth the lord’ – of the devil himself.
Without a “gay gene” it would seem only fair to proclaim that murderers, thieves, rapists, extortioners, serial killers and child molesters are after all, just “born that way.” Where is the movement to have them all released from prisons and restored to their rightful place in society as good citizens who just happen to be “born that way.”
Even this writer has to admit, that it isn’t always the scriptures that we need to return to; sometimes it is only that stuff we used to call common sense.
6. The final aspect of Christ’s rebuke against the Pharisees has to do with not just their lies, but how far and wide they would reach out to promulgate their twisted teachings:
Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell than yourselves. (Mt 23: 15)
The LGBT has crept into every area of academia, Hollywood, governance, and media. It is peddled worldwide under the watchful eye of Barack Obama who only recently threatened to pull aid to Uganda for their strict anti-gay laws.
We may not be that far away from calling for a national pink holiday based on Canada’s pink day celebrated in elementary schools in British Columbia on February 26, 2014.
Spreading the homo message around the world may seem like the biggest pop-culture cause of this generation, but in fact it is the biggest proof that our nation has been hoodwinked by the LGBT to abandon all obedience to God and the take the plunge into last day’s reprobation:
Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, and saying, where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation. (2 Pet 3: 3, 4)
Christ’s rebuke addresses the homo-agenda perfectly, but at the least one good thing can be seen from it: time is short.
The LGBT cannot create a level playing field through inclusion, equality or tolerance because the real leveler is something we all face, death. At the end of our lives we stand before our maker with either the word of God in our hearts or the gay manifesto in our hands.
