Joyce Meyer on homosexuality

What does Joyce Meyers Teach?

(click here)

The following is an partial article that Joyce Meyers joining others (Rick Warren) in standing… Meyer said it is “increasingly evident” that the bill introduced in the Ugandan parliament is a “profoundly offensive, dangerous and disturbing attack on the very foundation of individual liberties and human rights afforded not only to the good citizens of Uganda, but on the at-large global community.”


Joyce Meyer Joins Critics of Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill

Charismatic preacher Joyce Meyer has added herself to the list of prominent U.S. ministry leaders who have spoken out against Uganda’s highly contentious Anti-Homosexuality Bill.

“As a global society, we do not have to agree, endorse or condone the lifestyle choices of others. However, history has taught us that we equally cannot and should not excuse those who would hide behind religion or misuse God’s word to justify bigotry and persecution,” she insisted.

Proposed last October, Uganda’s Anti-Homosexuality Bill seeks to strengthen the criminalization of homosexuality in Uganda by introducing the death penalty for people who are considered serial offenders, are suspected of “aggravated homosexuality” and are HIV-positive, or who engage in sexual acts with those under 18 years of age.

Wow wonder if any of those signers would care to do something with abortion in the USA. Today as everyday there are 3,500 little helpless babies that are put to death. Every day. Just saying your against abortion does nothing for abortion. The modern day church in the USA seems to be numb or too self centered to really care.

In Nazi Germany when the death trains full of Jews begging for mercy and help from the “christian of the day” roll past their church they started sing louder so they would not have to hear the crys and pleading, thats what the church is doing today to we are just singing louder why all around us murder and death are being carted by in front of us. Sing brother, sing sister

    Joyce, I watch your show daily and am a longtime partner. When are people going stop saying being Gay is a “choice”?

    Gay people have relationships with Jesus too. Because we are gay, are we not to have loving relationships as do straights?

    Personally, I think Jesus is very upset by the way the church looks down on gay people.

    Jesus protected those whom the church were thought to be sinners.

    Wasn’t it Christianity that defended slavery; what about interracial marriage, and let’s not us forget Hitler? Need I say more?

    Basically, I’m asking you to speak out more for gay rights here in the US.

    Perhaps you have never been allowed to see a loved one in the ER or hospital because you are not consider a family member. Or be at the beside of your partner as they are dying because you are not immediate family.

    My own church will not Baptize me because I am an open gay. What do you think of that?

    I love and respect you. I would like a heartfelt response.

    Thank you,

    David

      You are assuming that “being Gay” has the approval of God, it does not. It is sin same as adultry, being a drunkerd or drug abuser,ect. You must do away with parts of the bible to make “being gay” a right.

      Lets just suppose that being gay was ok, that everyone is wrong about it, what would you do about adultry? Fornication? Sex outside of marriage is wrong. You can get married in one of the states that recognize this “union” but again God set forth marrige as between a man and a woman. So then you must do away with more of what the Word of God…

        To suggest that having respect for people’s innate make-up would mean that “everyone is wrong about it,” makes an inaccurate assumption. The fact is that acceptance of other people’s dignity and innate humanity is at about the 50% level and rising. But even if it were only a few people fighting for equality, they would be right and would be fighting against wrong.

        A huge majority of Americans between World War II and the mid-60s, including Christians of every sect, believed that miscegenation laws were proper, and that non-whites deserved less status and standing than whites. That huge majority was wrong.

        When discussing whether a society should deny equal rights to a segment of the population, one must ask if the reasons are secular or religious. If the reasons are religious, they do not meet the legal requirement to determine a “compelling reason.” Consensual sexual activity, particularly absent adultery, cannot rise to that requirement.

          I guess depends on how you define truth? Many make up their own supposed truth and if enough get involved and the ball starts rolling, and a un-truth is thought to be suddenly true… then they are maybe “insulted” by someone who disagrees with them or their cause. If 100 is for and 89 is against does that make something true? That is not truth that is a form of bullying for one to get their way.

          The argument that some how a choice (gay) is equal to discrimination because of ones race, is another “truth” that is being propagated by homosexuals (not all) and some of the leftest of our society, and very disrespectful of people of color. Again truth is not because we vote on it, and the yeas win and now it becomes truth.

          The only truth is from God who changes not. I encourage you to seek out God and His Word for Truth

            Just a few places where God changed His mind. Since He changes not…lol


            The LORD changed His mind about this. “It shall not be,” said the LORD.


            When God saw their deeds, that they turned from their wicked way, then God relented concerning the calamity which He had declared He would bring upon them. And He did not do it.


            “Now therefore amend your ways and your deeds and obey the voice of the LORD your God; and the LORD will change His mind about the misfortune which He has pronounced against you.


            So the LORD changed His mind about the harm which He said He would do to His people.


            “Did Hezekiah king of Judah and all Judah put him to death? Did he not fear the LORD and entreat the favor of the LORD, and the LORD changed His mind about the misfortune which He had pronounced against them? But we are committing a great evil against ourselves.”

            Being gay is like being a pedophile, or engaging in beastality, or porn, or bisexual, or satanism, or witchcraft, or murder, or adultery or any other life choice that you can’t stop now because when you allowed your mind to go there you became demonized like so many others and now you refuse to take responsibility for your actions like so many others. We live in a world that refuses to be accountable and look at us. Anyone can be delivered from any addiction, obsession, stronghold, strong delusion, demonic influence, unnatural lusts, through Christ Jesus alone. It is impossible to understand any part of the bible if you don’t have the holy spirit read away and it will not do you any good. It is the holy spirit that interprets God’s word, not your flesh, not your mind, you have the spirit of the antichrist and that is why you are fooled to believe that you can choose to practice sin regularly and self justify and you won’t go to hell at the judgement if you do not truly repent. If you are willing to repent i will be happy to pray with you, many of us were just like you and believed as you do before we came to know Christ Jesus. I am a preacher and I love God and i am tired of people blaspheming my Lord Jesus, Gays for Jesus really? will not lie to you to be politically correct or to keep from offense. If you want to be gay then man or woman up and just say so and be willing to take your punishment on judgement day, but stop claiming to represent Christ and spreading doctrines of demons and more confusion in the world especially our poor children today. And God is alive and real and has an amazing personality, so just ask Him, don’t take my word for it. Ask Him to speak to you and He will.

        You who calls himself “admin” say being gay is same as adultery, being drunken and a drug abuser? What a disgusting thing to say! Are you even a Christian? I guess not. Seems to me that you do not know the Word of God. Perhaps you belong to the Westboro Baptist Church? Being gay is like being Asian or Jewish or African or a midget. You cannot change who God made you to be. God loves us all and He does not judge any of us. It doesn’t matter who anyone is, the ultimate issue is whether you choose to live a sinless life or not and to love God and Jesus or not.
        If a gay couple has sex outside of marriage then it is still considered fornication. Forbidding gay people to marry results in them being forced into a life of sin ergo committing fornication. Everyone human being has rights and every person has a right to be married. Gay Christians can now get married and not be stricken with sin for having intimate relations. Marriage is only an earthly institution anyway. After this life there is no more marriage and no more male nor female, greek nor Jew, gay nor straight, black nor white. We all become as the angels of heaven.
        Gender and sex belongs to this world. Anyone who loves the things of this world more than the Kingdom of Heaven is not worth of entering the Kingdom. Gay Christians know that and don’t put themselves above Jesus.
        All men are considered sinners so let HE who is WITHOUT sin cast the first stone. Seems many so called Christians are more than happy to cast stones, which is a statement that they are claiming to be sinless. Tsch tsch!! No! You will be judged as you have judged others.
        Many gay people love Jesus and the Father. Not all are these flamboyant, debauched, disrespectful, lustful, sinful, God and Jesus denying/hating people we see depicted on TV or in parades. They are a minority. Just because heterosexual spring breakers carrying on in sin doesn’t mean that ALL young heterosexuals are like them!
        You can’t bundle everyone into the same category as others.
        I encourage you to pray that the truth be revealed to you and that you stop listening to the bigots who claim to be Christian but are the children of the devil, spreading messages of hatred when Jesus taught us to love.

          Homosexuality is hardly the same as being Baptist, Jewish, African, etc. God does not make mistakes. If he created you to be a man, then that’s what he intended you to be. If you were made a woman, then that who God created you to be.

          Regarding homosexuals having sex outside of “marriage”. Sorry, but there is no same-sex marriage according to the Word of God, see Genesis . There is nowhere in the Bible where God suggests that marriage involves anything other than a man and a woman.

          It’s important to note that homosexuality is an abomination to God. These are God’s words, not mine.

          Try not to become angry at Believers simply because they insist on following and standing on the Word of God.
          I will pray with you that your eyes will be opened to the truth. Remember, it’s the truth that set’s us free.

          Yes, Jesus loves you!

            Yes I agree with You! The Bible says: ‘Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality.’

            “God does not make mistakes. If he created you to be a man, then that’s what he intended you to be. If you were made a woman, then that who God created you to be.”

            God does not make mistakes? Really? About 1 in 5000 babies is born with both male and female genitals. What has the bible to say about that? Normally girls have XX chromosomes, and boys have XY chromosomes. However all kind of other abbreviations exist, sometimes with effects on the sexuality of these persons.
            Babies are born blind, or deaf, or with other physical problems. No one dares to discriminate them. With those persons it is simple, we can see the problem, it can’t be denied.
            But if someone is born as a homosexual, or as a transgender, then you can’t see it, it’s not physical. That makes it very easy to condemn those people as hetero sexual people who made a bad choice.
            Mother nature doesn’t read the bible, she plays all kind of tricks with use. The people who wrote the bible thousands of years ago had no idea abou these things, and didn’t know how to explain homosexuality. These days we do know, and we should act accordingly. Everybody has the right to experience a loving relation, it is the very essence of life. Denying that based on the bible is an abomination. Did you forget The Greatest Commandment? “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”

            According to Grace5, I don’t read the bible. Well, I can give you an example of men who did read it, and more specifically : “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.”, I will come to that later.

            He did not respond to my arguments, he just made an easy statement. Babies born with both male and female genitals, what does the bible has to say about that plaease? No comment? Doctors are studying the brain structure of LGBT people, and find differences compared to the brains of heterosexual people. Wow, so perhaps it’s just a physical thing, and not a choice after all? And what has the bible to say about lesbians? Not very much as far as I know, the bible didn’t care very much about homosexual women.

            So now to the men who did read the bible. In 1731, in a town some 20 miles from where I live, a preacher also talked about how much homosexuality is an abomination according to the bible, and in his sermons he made it all to clear what should happen to homosexuals. So when 34 men and boys were arrested on the charge of being homosexual he was there to interrogate them, and later on he assisted judging them in a court. One of the men died during the interrogations, but that can happen, can’t it?
            In the end 21 men and boys were executed. The preacher held a sermon, and then they were publicly strangled with the garrote, but not before the faces of three of them were lovingly scorched with a torch. Afterwards their bodies were burned. All of this was done in the name of God and the Bible of course, make no mistake about that.

            An exception? Oh no, many (presumed) homosexuals were executed in the most horrific way in those days, and all of these executions were justified by quoting the bible.

            That doesn’t happen anymore of course, you will tell me. Jesus doesn’t want that. You love these homosexual people, don’t you? But then I have a question for you. Have you ever heard of the Trevor Helpline? Young homosexual or transgender people can call that helpline if they contemplate suicide. Shortly after the phone lines opened, they had received some 15000 calls. Guess where the vast majority of the calls came from? The Bible Belt. The area where the people live that can quote every chapter and verse of the bible. I’m sure the parents in that area will show the love for their LGBT children by throwing bible verses at them, instead of truly loving and supporting them in their difficult struggle to come to terms with their sexual identity. Perhaps that explains why so many of these children in the Bible Belt contemplate suicide, or do you have an other explanation for that?

            And did you know that 40% of the homeless teenagers belong in the LGBT category? No doubt many of them ran away or were expelled from their homes, where their parents could quote the bible, but did not understand how to love their own children.
            Conservative Christians don’t like the Greatest Commandment, and they don’t like either. Those bible texts are for wimps, it’s much nicer when you can quote the bible and tell people that their life style is an abomination.

            Perhaps you should try to understand the true meaning of what Jesus tried to convey, instead of perverting the bible to condemn people who are trying to do nothing else then to find love in their life.

            Using the bible to justify ones sin is not really studying the Word but shows a darkness within. This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. 8 If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.

            Thank you for demonstrating so clearly what I was trying to say. I’m telling you about real life problems. about LGBT children who are not only contemplating suicide, but in many sad cases also committing suicide. Children desperately seeking love, understanding, support. And what is your real life answer? Nothing, you have no real answers. Just pseudo religious rhetoric, bombast. Jesus would have despised you. He had answers on real life problems, he didn’t need pseudo religious bombast.

            Read this again:

            When the Pharisees heard that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, they met together in the same place. One of them, an expert in the Law, tested him by asking, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus told him, “‘You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.’ This is the greatest and most important commandment. The second is exactly like it: ‘You must love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets depend on these two commandments.”

            If this is good enough for Jesus, then it’s good enough for me.

            Oh, and by the way. Jesus never said anything about homosexuality etc.

            And then we have these beautiful words that also magnificently explain what the bible is all about:

            If I speak in the languages of humans and angels but have no love, I have become a reverberating gong or a clashing cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can understand all secrets and every form of knowledge, and if I have absolute faith so as to move mountains but have no love, I am nothing. Even if I give away everything that I have and sacrifice myself, but have no love, I gain nothing.

            Love is always patient;
            love is always kind;
            love is never envious
            or arrogant with pride.

            Nor is she conceited,
            and she is never rude;
            she never thinks just of herself
            or ever gets annoyed.

            She never is resentful;
            is never glad with sin;
            she’s always glad to side with truth,
            and pleased that truth will win.

            She bears up under everything;
            believes the best in all;
            there is no limit to her hope,
            and never will she fall.

            Love never fails. Now if there are prophecies, they will be done away with. If there are languages, they will cease. If there is knowledge, it will be done away with. For what we know is incomplete and what we prophesy is incomplete. But when what is complete comes, then what is incomplete will be done away with.

            When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up my childish ways. Now we see only an indistinct image in a mirror, but then we will be face to face. Now what I know is incomplete, but then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.

            Right now three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.

            Please read this last sentence and the part about the gong and the cymbal, and then read your previous answer again.

            Some studies have shown that being gay is somewhat genetic, you are more genetically-prone to being gay than others. BUT it goes for the same of people who have addiction problems, it is also proven to be genetically-prone, Its about OVERCOMING our personal demons. I myself am an addict, and I am attracted to woman as well, but I chose not to ACT on my transgressions. God loves everyone of us, its really about your relationship with you and god.

          Our son came out to us 13 years ago. We didn’t handle it well as Christians. For many years after that he was angry and rebellious. He believed we didn’t love him and rejected him. It took many years of walking this road with him, listening to stories of other gay people, and connecting with ministries that deal with this issue to come to the conclusion that scripture regarding homosexuality can be interpreted differently than the mainline church has preached. Similar to how divorce an remarriage has been. Bottom line…no one knows or can begin to understand what it’s like to be gay other than God, the person or a parent of a gay person. I look at gay rights these days totally different than 13 years ago. I heard some Christian speaker say once “if you can’t love a gay person then maybe you need one in your family ” Thers’s a lot of truth in that. How can gays outside of the church get saved if we don’t first love them then walk with them in Christ.

          I will not judge your inner motives, but I use to sleep with women. It felt good but Unnatural! Now my smoking Habit seems a little harder to let go of. For some reason once I came in contact with Jesus Christ I no longer had Sexual relations with women! I struggle in my Mind, but I Cannot touch another woman as my spirit won’t give in. I desire and long for the day that the smoking taste is taken out of my mouth, but I must wait on God. So I won’t condem myself any longer! I have been married 12 years and I am certain that being with a man is what God wanted for me, or either celibacy. I believe Romans chpt 1…It’s like you telling someone Your Truth but they keep saying “sure, whatever”.. At that time you would be frustrated and say, “well, believe what You Want”.. I don’t want to believe in what I Want, but I desire to believe what God Says! But if we don’t First believe God’s Word () then how can we believe God? I Love Everyone and I tell my story, it is HiStory that Saved Me/Us.. I believe in Equal rights for all, and I hope that All will come to the knowledge of The Real Jesus Christ. God In The Flesh, for He Loves Us More, and First before time was time He wanted All to come into Revelation Knowledge Of Christ! We all fall short but it is His Grace that holds us, do we trample over Grace with wickedness and unrighteousness? God forbid! But we stand and take Up Our Cross following Jesus In Love.. LOVE IS TRUTH, TRUTH SETS US FREE.. We need to learn to Love and speak in Love and I believe after that, “Everything Is Going To Be Alright”..God Bless

          (THOUGH NOT BY CHOICE) who then gets strung out on drugs from a PILL DOCTOR & then ruin/waste 10 yrs of my life trying SO HARD to release myself from these drugs & go through HORRIBLE WITHDRAWAL! Yeah! That’s what I want to be when I grow up!”
          NO! DOESN’T happen that way. And NO, I was NOT sexually abused as a child, hence causing me to NOT “LIKE &/OR BE ATTRACTED” TO A MAN!
          In fact, at the innocent age of approx 5 yrs old (I was in Kindergarten so I WAS VERY YOUNG INDEED)
          I asked my Mom if we could talk in the bathroom as that was our
          “private place” (if you will) of where I felt most comfortable talking about life’s challenges with my Mother (IN PRIVATE WITH THE DOOR SHUT). So I asked her quote:
          “Ma, how come I like my friend Susan as more than just friends?”
          She replied “Oh, it’s just a phase Honey. Don’t worry about it. The feeling will pass. You’re young & still have a lot of growing up to do”
          I replied eagerly “No! But Ma listen to me please???!!! I want to KISS Susan!!! Really Ma & I don’t feel the same way with any of the boys in my class or anywhere! I want to ask her to be my girlfriend Ma!!! Is that normal? I’m scared!” My Mother paused for a moment obviously trying to process what I’d divulged in detail & was SO AFRAID SHE WAS GOING TO SAY I WAS A SINNER being a Christian & all. But to my surprise as she knelt down in front of me & as I began to sob on her shoulder, as she hugged me (because I was SO AFRAID) she replied “Robin Honey, no need to cry. God loves EVERYONE!!! You say your prayers every night & give thanks to God above all just like Nana taught both you & your brother Stevie right? You try hard to NOT SIN right? You’re HUMAN & God makes each of us ON PURPOSE. FOR A REASON & you’ll find your purpose someday even if you can’t shed yourself of such feelings. I’m right here for you but MOST OF ALL SO IS JESUS & OUR GOD!”
          I never felt such relief after that conversation.
          Sadly my Mom’s no longer with us
          (May she R.I.P. in God’s loving Kingdom). Though I did NOT lose these profound feelings for the same sex & live with my partner of whom I’ve been with, happily for over 6 years now. Yes, we do plan to marry as well. Not just for the unification but also because I was in a VERY CRITICAL CAR ACCIDENT LAST YEAR. DIED 4 TIMES BUT THEY WERE ABLE TO BRING ME BACK. APPARENTLY GOD HAS OTHER PLANS FOR ME IS MY THOUGHTS AS WELL AS MY PARTNER’S ANYWAY, BECAUSE I WAS IN SURGICAL I.C.U. (NOT JUST I.C.U.) THERE WAS STERN RESTRICTIONS ON WHO-IF ANY COULD VISIT ME AS I WAS IN A COMA & THE ODDS WERE AGAINST ME THAT I WAS GOING TO SURVIVE DUE TO THE AMOUNT & SEVERITY OF MY INJURIES (ie. Flown from a local hospital (that had already done at least 2 blood transfusions) to Surgical I.C.U in Boston) of where I underwent an emergency splinectomy, broke 8 ribs (3 of which are displaced = broken in more than 1 spot. Still today causing MASSIVE PAIN). Also broken all coxxyx Vertebrae, Fractured Pelvic. Other Vertebrae in my sacral & L3-4 & 4-5 injured. Tore my kidney, Liver, & worse, the aorta of my heart. So of COURSE I’D WANT THE 1 I LOVE MOST THERE WHEN I FINALLY CAME OUT OF THE COMA! SO, IN ORDER TO EVEN GET THROUGH THE DOORS THEY MADE HERE SIGN IN & SHE HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO LIE & SAY WE WERE MARRIED!!!
          NOW, THEY COULD HAVE LOOKED IT UP & FIND OUT WE WERE NOT BUT THEY HAD AN IDEA RIGHT FROM THE GATE THAT WE WERE/ARE TOGETHER & MY BELIEF WAS/IS THAT THEY TOOK PITY ON US &&&& I’M EVER SO GRATEFUL THAT WE WERE NOT JUDGED. EVEN WITH MYSELF BEING IN RECOVERY FOR
          13 + YRS. FROM THE AWFUL DIS-EASE OF ADDICTION!
          SO I ASK YOU JOYCE & ANYONE ELSE THAT’S READ MY “BIO” JUST NOW…DO YOU REALLY THINK GOD MAKES TRASH (IF YOU WILL)??? IF SO THAN I WOULD BE CORRECT IN SAYING THAT YOU JOYCE & OTHERS WHO BELIEVE IN THE SAME ARE JUDGING ME AS TRASH! And WHAT DOES IT ULTIMATELY SAY IN ANY BIBLE EVER WRITTEN (IF I’M NOT MISTAKEN) “THY SHALL NOT JUDGE. THY SHALL NOT HATE” & on it goes! Being gay IS BY FAR NOT THE SAME AS ADULTERY OR LYING, STEALING & THE LIKE! THOSE ARE CHOICES & SOME WELL THOUGHT OUT! I DID NOT BY ANY MEANS “THINK” I’D BE GAY MY ENTIRE LIFE BUT GUESS WHAT? I AM & I’M HAPPY & I’M LOVING & CARING & I AM A PROUD, FAITHFUL, LOYAL CHRISTIAN!
          I Pray You MAKE IT a Great Day
          Just as you Deserve & how God would want it. Don’t let anyone or anyTHING steal your joy.

        Amen. So many people do not understand that to be gay and have a mind set to be gay is to allow a perversion of the mind. IT IS SIN.! If we are to accept Gay, than we might as well accept rapists, pedophiles, sex trafficking, or any other lust-filled action that is against God and humanity.
        Once the church disobeys God to let man do as they please, they become the same hypocrite Pharisees Jesus shunned in . Jesus also talks about sexual immortality in .
        Furthermore those fighting to be Gay, or Support Gays, are being disobedient by trying to gain the approval of humans instead of obeying God.
        We must obey God rather than man.
        I am not trying to win the approval of people, but of God.
        If people would spend more time reading God’s word, and less time asking people what they think; they would find the right answer.

        Even though I was raised as a male, inside my brain and since I was six years old in the 1950’s, I was female.
        But I’m also intersex and have female gentalia on the inside. It is the proof that God didn’t just make male and female nor is it some choice I made.
        Terrible cosmetic surgeries are done on babies, where some doctor and not God or nature, determined gender and thus who can marry who and who.
        It is a theft of what God made and sanctioned child abuse as it defines us based on what is between our legs and ignores what God gave us in our genes/chromosomes and in our heads.
        To deny this is to deny truth. The world isn’t flat and God did not just make man and woman from his rib.
        What you do not realize is that you foster parent rejection of child, put neighbor against neighbor and foster the killing and suicides of an already compromised community.

        The word homosexual was not even invented until 1862 so no the word homosexual was never used in the bible.
        What parts of the bible do you have to do away with?

        Old testament? Law was fulfilled in christ if it wasnt we would have some serious problems to try to follow it.

        Romans was talking about idol worshiping and the sex that followed after it. And the sexually immoral was not gays rather the men having sex with boys and the prostitutes men and women.

        Sodam and gohmora was not destroyed because of gays rather they were so bad there they were going to rape angle and the lifestyle was for themselves. Was terrible.

          Yes you are correct but the sin that today we call homosexuality is still in the bible

          – Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it [is] abomination.
          – Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind
          – Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
          – And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

      David, I just want to say that I have gays in my family too. But when will gay people realize that it is your soul that we are looking out for and the souls of many that you will take with you.
      You need to make sure that you are not reading on of the new Bibles that remove words and or replace words. There are many preacher who care nothing about your salvation, but that you continue to support them. Wolves, false prophets! Will Joyce be there to save you when you are judged.
      God calls homosexual acts committed by the men of Sodom very grievous. Gen.18:20. He also calls it those perverse sexual acts ” filthy, wicked, ungodly, and unlawful. . In the book of Jude, , God explains that the inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed for fornication with strange flesh. God has forbidden and cursed all fornication, the joining of human beings as one flesh in a sexual union outside of marriage. .
      : 22 and 20:13 forbid sexual acts between 2 men. forbids sexual acts between 2 woman. , men with men. I am so sorry for your struggle but God can change you if you really want to. Joyce Meyers will lead you into hell! I will keep you in prayer!

Those of us whom are true christians understand that it is not for us to judge it is for God to judge it is not for us to look down upon or cast away because we are all sinners and no one sin is greater than the other all sins are equal…….. “Let he whom is without sin cast the first stone”

            You are exactly correct (on this quote), all those outside of Christ will be dammed, those who are not born again, partake in sin and continue to do so (a practicing a lifestyle) will have no part in the kingdom of God. Making any sin ok is sin itself and leads one to a reprobate mind (given over to your sinful desires)

            eph5:But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. 4Let there be no filthiness nor foolish talk nor crude joking, which are out of place, but instead let there be thanksgiving. 5For you may be sure of this, that everyone who is sexually immoral or impure, or who is covetous (that is, an idolater), has no inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. 6Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience.

      God does love the gay but He is holy. If we have the relationship with Him, would we ask HIm to accept the sin of homosexuality when He asked His children to repent from it? That is the purpose of Jesus’ death on the cross.. that His shed blood is sufficient to cleanse all His children’s sins when they sincerely repent. If He can just accept sins, Jesus need not come and die at all.

      God has provided a way for us to unite in HIs holiness. Sins have consequences It is a spiritual disease and give access to Satan in our lives. The wages of sin is death. Because of sins, God has to judge for He is just and righteous. Which kingdom does not judge lawlessness? What more of the Kingdom of God…there is no sin in heaven and if Satan and his minions were cast out, He will have to do the same for those who refuse to repent.

      Ask for His forgiveness and He will cast out the spirit of homosexuality and heal the wounds of your past which open the door to gay lifestyle. We either serve God or Satan through our bodies. We get to choose the life or death that God sets before us, rather than asking God to compromise so that we can have our ways…which incidentally is what Satan wants for us…to satisfy our own flesh, which is dead in sins, so that we hinder ourselves from receiving the eternal life that God has provided for us thru Jesus Christ.

        There are no flames. That is a construct of the Church to put the fear of God into us. True hell is the spiritual separation from our Creator. Look at it another way, if after this life we have no body to speak of can we really burn? What will burn, our souls?

      I believe that God loves all of those who love Him. Being baptized in front of the church is just an open confession that you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ. Have a fellow believer baptise you in front of your peers, loved ones and family members that are in unison with your beliefs. Whether in a bath tub or a community swimming pool, your baptisen will be recognized by God. God bless you and your family and friends. You can do this.!!! And I am happy and excited to welcome you to God’s family. See you on resurrection day. God bless. All my love.

      Jesus loves homosexuals just as he loves adulterers, murderers, & thieves. However, the Bible states when you become saved, you must REPENT of your sins. The definition of repent is to turn away from. Which means you no longer practice what stood in the way of your personal relationship with God through Christ. For adulterers, no more sex outside of their marriage bed. For murderers, no more killing. For thieves, no more stealing. For homosexuals, no more intimacy with the same sex. Too many churches these days want numbers in their seats over souls truly saved. We all, not just homosexuals, need to sit back & examine our own lives before telling others what they are doing wrong. “Dear brothers & sisters, if another believer is overcome by sin, you who are godly should gently & humbly help that person back onto the right path. & be careful not to fall into the same temptation yourself.” “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? How can you think of saying ‘Friend, let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.”

        Judging?
        NET Bible
        Do you not know that we will judge angels? Why not ordinary matters!

        Never said homosexuality is the unpardonable sin, as there is forgiveness in/thru Christ alone. I dont see the drunks marching to demand that they have special rights, nor the adulterers,nor the theives,ect. They know what they do is wrong. Same as the homosexual

        You must be born again (regenerated) then you have the right heart to repent and believe.This new birth brings about a new nature that HATES what God hates that is sin. If homosexuality (or any sin) is ok with you, then you most likely have not been born again. I would strongly suggest that you read more of the bible than just the verses you THINK support your ideas (most of the NT is written to believers, not lost people). Sin of any kind is NEVER ok, doesnt matter if the whole world is doing it, it is still sin.
        The unclean will not inherit heaven.(unclean is anyone that has not been born again)

      It is simple. Homosexuality is addressed in tbe story of Sodom and Gamorrah when Lot had to protect the angels from the lust of men in Sodom who wanted to have sex with men. Lot was rescued by God and Sodom was destroyed for their sinful ways. In the new testament it is clearly stated in and that homosexuality is a sin. There is a difference between God accepting and loving people versus God accepting and loving sin. He loves you as a person, but does not agree with the sin. However, it is up to each individual to choose how they live their life but they risk it not being in accordance to God.

    As Christians God wants us to love everybody. But that does not mean we are not to confront one another as God’s children. Rather it’s, incest, homosexuality, adultery, lesbianism, pornography and I could go on with the list of sexual sin. It is called Carefronting each other, (brothers and sisters in Christ). Do I care enough about my brother or sister in Christ to confront them if they are committing adultery or any form of (sin)?
    If I was doing something against God, committing adultery on my husband. I would expect a brother or sister in Christ to come to me and confront me wearing a cloak of humility. Because if it be not for the grace of God there go any of us. Are we our brother’s keeper? Yes we are! Jesus does not want us to stay in our sin. He has come to set us free and we are being set free until the day we go home to be with Him. known sin we are responsible for it.

    I’m here to tell you that God made man and women, he did not make Adam and Steve he made Adam And eve, And God Said man shall cleave to his wife and the list can go on and on. I’m here to tell you friends that the word of God is 100% truth look at all the words God spake in the old testament and look what he said when he came as Jesus all has been 100% correct what would happen in time to come and it has come to pass and still is coming to pass I’ll tell you now the end is near and Lest ye repent ye shall perish to a everlasting hell of fire and torcher, Your probably thinking he’s just puffing smoke well let me tell you this friend, when I die and there was no God what have I lost but Oh But when you die and see that there is a God it will be to late for you to seek his forgiveness for His judgment is righteous, Now I leave you with this scripture verse (: Then Peter said unto them Repent and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.) and believe on the whole word of God, now I leave may the lord bless you who reads this

    I don’t want to jump on anyone’s reply’s, but I personally think that we are judged on the conscience choices we make that are hurtful to others. People do not choose to be gay, they don’t set out each day to hurt us because they are gay.

      Being gay is purely a choice.

        Being gay is as much a choice as being black, or blue eyed, or asian or heterosexual. We know that about 10% of humans are born homosexual, it’s always been that way. Reading Joyce’s Admin bots posting crazy old disproven myths is a concern to me, she knows better.

        Admin: Are you this blythely unaware to the advancements and discoveries in science including biology, genetics, and evolution?

        Are you really supposedly so well-versed in theology that you neglect to have discovered scholarly, evidenced-based research unearthing the countless revisions and translations that took place between all iterations of the Bible?

        The fact of the matter is that homosexuality was generalized to fit a plethora of sins as a partial means to fit the ignorance and societal norms of an ignorant, corrupt world.

        I suggest that you educate yourself and abstain from using an antiquated definition as logic and truth to fit your skewed agend; and, leave all judging to He who resides inside our Holy Spirit and in the Heavens above.

        Thanks.

      Can you choose to be celibate. Engaging in sex is a choice. “I say to the unmarried and to widows that it is good for them if they remain even as I.” Obviously, the Apostle Paul was referring to being celibate. You can’t serve God and Homosexuality. They don’t mix.

And they do NOT choose that lifestyle with all the hatred, humiliation and fear of being beaten up by gay bashers or shunned from families and ridiculed by so many people. It is a very difficult life. God see’s the pain they have to endure and He will deal with everyone who has a part in that pain!!

    Listen, God allows us to choose. Read the Word. Homosexuality is sin ,period. When we ask Jesus to save our soul, we are transformed from our old life that is death. Choose the love of The Eternal One instead of earthly pleasures that last a fleeting moment….He’s worth it ! But if you choose the gay way, don’t hide behind what you know is the truth
    As far as Joyce , she is not condoning homosexuality, don’t you think they should be allowed opportunity to be saved ? How does the death penalty help that? Perhaps the Ugandan churches need more funding to spread the gospel! Just saying….

    Gay rights should not be promoted nor enshrined in the law and neither should it be illegalised but just left alone. Those who carry on with same sex sexual relationships will surely face the wrath of God. It is a bit difficult handle in the law as there are seemingly no visible grounds for the community to lay any violation by the parties involved as in a clear case of assault. Being drunk is a sin in as much as homosexuality is a sin but society has not sought to out law being drunk. Why be dragged into endorsing a sin into law when in fact one cannot seek to outlaw people with pride. I think the devil is playing trick on us here, but if we take it as sin like pride there wouldnot be arguments of outlawing like in Uganda. We have been sucked into endorsing sin through law, wat if we ignore!!! and Pray for salvation for we are not fighting against flesh and blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly place- .

      And I wonder how many things you are guilty of that will have you facing the wrath of God. Jesus has done many things in the bible adverse to how His disciples thought He should. You don’t know the mind of God. Not everyone who cries Lord Lord will make it into the kingdom of heaven. A gay may make it to heaven before you do. Homosexuality won’t send you to hell but there are plenty of common everyday sins we as humans do that will. Focus on that!

  9. Deb
    July 7, 2015 at 10:32 am

    Brothers & sisters in Christ, help me to clarify a few things. Pray with & for me for us to obtain understanding.

    1.) There is neither male nor female in Christ Jesus.

    2.) The word “homosexual” wasn’t a word until the 18th century.
    Why is it used in bible translation? And since, as a hammer.

    3.) Sodom & G… was destroyed because of LUST, IDOLOTRY (God is a jealous God) INDESCRIMINATE sex. Yes?
    How is that breezed over and the “hammer” word pounded out as it’s downfall to justify “the” reason for destruction?

    4.) Eunuchs: Jesus replied, ” Not everyone can accept this word, but only to those whom it has been given. For some are eunuchs because they were born that way; others were made that way by man; and others have renounced marriage because of the kingdom of heaven. The one who can accept this should accept it.” Yes?

    : 13 *He knit us together in our mothers womb. (not exact)
    I know God knows every hair on our head and, chose us long before there was an us.
    Could people be gay then from the mothers womb?
    He would have to know about that. He’s God. We’re his creation & he doesn’t make mistakes.

    God, does not like immorality which, is made up of many things! God doesn’t like lust, liars or pride or adultery. murderers, bearing false witness. etc. etc.
    All of that is immoral. No? Yes?
    Why then use that word when referring to homosexuality as another hammer as if that’s it’s equal?

    We’re not under the law because Christ died on the cross for our sins! All of them, not just most of them, or some except___fill in the blank.
    NO! All of them! He paid the ransom.

    Adultery is a sin (no IF there)
    if you’ve even entertained the thought of another you’ve commited it. Yes? Yes!
    Where’s the hammer for that?

    Anyone having premarital sex?
    Children out of wedlock?
    Divorced?
    Steal, lie, cheat…The list goes on…
    Hammer anyone?

    We are to repent and in our human-ness when we fall short, yet again,
    does he only include the first 5 times we sin?
    The first 15? How many? All? EVERY? YES! EVERY TIME. He counts them not!
    Thank him for it!

    By his grace I am saved!
    I have been blessed in so many ways. I have the fruit of the spirit in my life because I have a personal relationship with him.
    He has held me up in the hardest times of my life and I continually find rest in him!
    I have grown as a Christian and am nowhere near done. Every day. A 24 hour watch!

    A peace beyond all understanding.

    Some of us were never meant to procreate. I am one of those. I’ve been in a monogamous 15 year relationship with another Christian woman.
    I know I’m going to heaven.
    I know I’ll stand before God (can’t wait) so everyone can just relax. Many of you feel compelled to call “us” out. Ok. Your self imposed duty is done.
    Go see the optometrist about that log in your eye. He wants you to see the blessings he’s giving YOU!
    For the love of God do as he says and love thy neighbor.

    I love you, whomever you are and I pray he blesses you and you come to have an intimate personal relationship with him. He is amazing!
    God bless you Amen!

      Deb, way to grow! People are always afraid of things they don’t understand. People understand love. Too bad they only see love if it agrees with the kind they have. You have said everything I have been saying for years. Instead of judging others, we need to worry about ourselves. We need to concentrate on listening to what God is telling us and not focusing on what the neighbor is doing and why they are doing it. God loves us not because of what we do or don’t do but because of who we are to Him. His children.

    how on earth can you say that people are born gay?
    So you are saying that God made a big mistake and made you a man but inside you are truly a woman or vice versa!
    That is insulting not only to believers of Christ but to God himself!
    God doesn’t make mistakes or require auto correct. If you love God you will love what His word Says. i have come to the conclusion that its only gay people that take offense to the truth about being gay. people get it right, Christians are standing up for what is the truth. Being a Christian is the acknowledgement that we too are sinners, but repenting from the ways that are not aligned with God’s truth has set us free, why would we keep this liberating truth from people who need to know it! instead, they take offense, make tongue lashing comments about Christian beliefs and call us judgmental! The good news is there for anyone, any colour, any race, any creed, the difference is when you pick up your cross and follow Jesus, you do it in the way that sets you free, you don’t take the truth and twist it to suit the habits of this wicked world and then criticize Gods word for not agreeing with what your carnal being wants. God is no fool and His word is not to be mocked!

      G How can you say the attraction you feel for the opposite sex is a choice? You can’t choose to be attracted to someone It’s the brain/chemistry. Think of how you feel looking at the same gender as you. YUCK right. You didn’t CHOOSE that feeling. It’s been there since you were born. You didn’t say “eenie meenie miney mo” I pick female. ITS PHYSIOLOGY Chemicals in the BRAIN.. There is no WAY you can choose what gender turns you on.. My God just give it a rational thought!! Absolutely ridiculous.

    I am a gay christian woman. I did not choose to be gay. I was gay since I was a little girl and was as naturally attracted to females as my brother was attracted to women. I am also a black woman. I did not choose to be black either.
    I do choose to be a Christian because i believe in Jesus’s teachings. I love his two commandments: Love God with all your heart and love thy neighbour as thyself…

    I belong to a progressive, inclusive and affirming Christian church and I am grateful to have a church to go to that sees me as one of God’s kids. I learn about helping others and carrying on God’s message of love . I see God shining in the eyes and hearts of those who accept and love as Jesus did.

My 25 year old son is gay. I asked him 7yrs ago while out for dinner. He said yes. I asked how long did you know, He said as far back as he could remember. I was why didn’t you tell anyone or me. He said “”Because I thought I could change.” The pain I felt hearing he had this burden on his back when he was so very young AND dealt with it alone cut deeper than anything I every felt.

    Who gave any of us the right to judge. If we are christians and believe in the Lord then we should take to heart his word that clearly tells us not to judge… Judge not that you be judged for with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged and with the measure you use it it will be measured to you
    Judge not and you will not be judged,Condemn not and you will not be condemned, Forgive and you will be forgiven
    There is only one lawgiver and judge, only he is able to save or destroy.
    The Bible is saturated with the same message “don’t judge” in Matthew, james, Romans, John,Titus,Ephesians, Luke,Galatians,Corinthians, Peter.
    I do know this, We will all answer to God one day and our Lord Jesus Christ will determine the right or wrong of all things.

    Hi, so quick question guys…. Is lying a sin? Of course so is fornication, marstubation, abortion, homophobia and homosexuality. Been 15…i have struggled with most listed above and itz hard because society is been so open to these things and worsts of all people are twisting the bible words to accept their acts….. Soon sleeping with animals will be accepted. But i dont think discriminating against or harming this people is the right way we are just pushing them further to the devil… Instead they should be treated with love and care and told to further connect with God within their souls for him can cleanse them of their sins. Remember it is easy to be gay just as it is to lie…… To some it might not be outward choice but a spiritual one. All these are signs of endtime, do not be confused….. Love and bring all to God.

    Isn’t there a difference between judgment and discernment? In Christian contexts, discernment is perception without judgment with a view to obtaining spiritual direction and understanding. For example:

    (NIV)

    2 When a country is rebellious, it has many rulers, but a ruler with discernment and knowledge maintains order.

    I do not judge homosexuality, but I am using discernment when I hold it up to the light to God’s Word who has made the final determination, and will judge the sin. Love the sinner, just as He loves me.

      Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity…
      And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, 31 foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.

    I believe in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus is my savior and I am a woman that loves a woman and God himself knows why. My relationship with God is between God an myself. I don’t remember anyone like any of you being there for me in so many hard and I mean really hard circumstances born with bi-polar, going through abuse and now chronic pain. It is when I was at my lowest I got closest to God and he/she above all understands the person I am because he made me. So many self righteous Christians make it so hard for gays and lesbians, they wont even explore God. You put them in a corner and you puff yourself up and consider yourself of the norm. I don’t even go to church but than when you look back in the bible, Christ spent his time in small villages and out away from the temples talking to all people. Are anyone of you without sin? God knows who I am and why I am who I am. I love the Lord and I suggest nobody judge anyone for anything. If you want to marry traditionally than do so, but don’t think you are the perfect one’s. I’ve known married Christians, husbands and wives that talk the talk but when the curtain is pulled live quite differently. Why this issue of loving the same sex continues to be viewed as the ultimate sin?? Only God knows who we are and what are true heart is and suggest you search yours. My relationship is with God, not the church, or anyone else. God above all understands genetics, pain, hurt, abuse and so many other things. He used hurting people to do great things and God meets us where we are. Who is anyone to say to another your a sinner? No of us are worthy of his grace but still he is a loving God and understands our innermost pain, thoughts and desires. Those of you that married traditionally obviously never had an attraction or desire for the same sex. I can tell you that it’s as revolting to me to think of being with a man as it is for those that marry in the traditional way. Genetics change who we are, circumstances an environments all influence who we are an what lifestyle we choose. God does give us choices. Show me a family without dysfunction and I sell you some land in Florida. Today I pray people stop judging anyone for anything. Cast a stone and better cast one back at yourself.

      Please read all of an note what God has said here

      … 26 Therefore for this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; 27 and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error.

      28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to debased mind to do what ought not to be done. 29 They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness…

      – What does “exchanging of natural relations mean”? (it is stated in these verses)
      – “They were consumed with passion for one another”, is this to be taken in the negative or as some are implying the approval of? (stated in these verses)

      The Holy Spirit did not whisper in the Apostle Peters ear one thing and Tell the Prophet in The Old Testament something contrary.

      So you are left with believe what sinful fallible man says or the only Living God? You do have a choice here. You can close one eye and squint with the other and claim these verses are not here or canceled out by some other verse, or whatever you want to do to deny them, or you can agree it is what God is teaching in these verses
