Episcopal Church has once again committed heresy. Not only
have they named a woman as bishop, but she is a lesbian.
What does the Bible teach on such things? “A bishop then
must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober
of good behavior, given to hospitality, apt to teach;”
1 Timothy 3:2. Blameless means that a
bishop must be without reproach and living a godly lifestyle
to the best of his ability.
throughout scripture that homosexuality is condemned by God,so
a homosexual is not without reproach. They are making no
attempt to live a godly life. According to Paul, when held
to just the first adjective in the above verse a
homosexual/lesbian would be automatically disqualified from
such a position as bishop in the church.
qualification for a bishop is he must be the husband of
one wife. This is something that is impossible for a
woman and not likely in a homosexual.
Let’s look at what it means to be
vigilant and sober. From the Greek words we get
the following definitions. “of a sound mind, sane, in
one's senses, curbing one's desires and impulses,
self-controlled, temperate”. Hmm, sound mind, sane,
curbing one’s desires and impulses, need I go on? This
description just doesn’t fit as we observe the lifestyle of
a homosexual. Anyone living such a lifestyle certainly is
not of a sound mind.
How about of good behaviour? God
refers to homosexuality as an abomination. If they are
involved in that abomination their behavior is anything but
good. I’m sure Homosexuals can be hospitable;hospitality
can do it. But would you want to be invited to the home of a
homosexual knowing that in their home they practice what God
Apt to teach? My last question
concerning the above verse is, what are homosexual Bishops
going to teach? Are they apt to teach their flocks that
their lifestyle is perfectly normal and that it should be
condoned as such? Are they going to explain away the verses
in the Bible which teach against homosexualityas
nonsensical, out dated, unreliable, or maybe they’ll just
exclaim that that was then and this is now.
We can see by the above verse that placing a homosexual in the position of
a Bishop is not acceptable to God. It is doubly wrong for a
lesbian woman since a Bishop needs to be a man.
In Leviticus 18 God admonishes His people “the Hebrews” to
abstain from all forms of evil. This whole chapter is
devoted to sexual perversions that God considers
abominations. He continues to explain that even the land, in
which He was giving to the Hebrews, was defiled because of
the evil sexual practices of the previous inhabitants.
“Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all
these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you:
And the land is defiled...” Leviticus 18:24, 25.
God tells His people that even the land where these
abominable sexual practices were taking place was defiled.
Another word for defiled is ruined.
well as folks who onlyprofess
to be Christian,remain
unopposed to homosexuality. They believe the lie that
homosexuality is a normal lifestyle and that people are born
that way. But God says differently, thus, the land is
becoming more and more defiled.
I realize that many Christian Churches
have minor to extreme doctrinal problems,but
to place a homosexual in the position of Bishop is way
beyond potentially problematic. Many in the
Episcopal Church exited after a homosexual man was appointed
as Bishop, but now they’ve
only added to their own perversions by placing a lesbian in
the same capacity. Man condones what God abhors.
This is clearly an
act of rebellion against God. For the life of me I will
never understand how people who claim to follow Jesus and
revere Him as Messiah and Savior of the world could
purposely turn against God’s inerrant word and promote such
a completely heretical doctrine as this organization has
done. When Godin
His word speaks of apostasy, this is exactly what He’s
“Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your
own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus
Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”
2 Corinthians 13:5.
Where we see God rejecting peoplebecome
the elders of the churchapostasy
As believers we are
told to abstain from all appearances of evil. Homosexuality,
to the sane mind, is inherently evil. It is clearly a
satanic seduced lie. Satan has convinced many in the church
that homosexuality can be practiced and even condoned as a
perfectly normal lifestyle. God would never condone
homosexuality as such. This, folks is pure insanity, it’s
not natural yet now we see that man has changed this
abomination into a completely normal “alternative
How can God’s word
be so ignored even in the Anglican Church? The very fact
that people are leaving this church in droves must tell them
something. The people don’t agree with the
foolishness of the hierarchy of this Church, and it’s not
bigotry, the abandonment of this rogue church by their body
is simply Christians standing on God’s inerrant word.
Can a homosexual be a believer? Can
they live this God professed abdominal lifestyle all their
adult lives and actually claim to know Jesus intimately? How
can they live a life as a homosexual,which
is in direct opposition to God,and
still claim to be one of His children? Is it because
Leviticus is in the Old Testament and thus it can be
ignored? Okay take the Old Testament and toss it out the
window if you wish. Now all we have is the New Testament.
“Know ye not that the unrighteous
shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither
fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate,
(homosexuals) nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor
extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God,”
1 Corinthians 6:9, 10.
That’s in the New Testament? Yeah, and
so is this, “Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and
worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator,
who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause God gave them
up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the
natural use into that which is against nature: 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.” Romans
1:25-27. These verses are referred to by Barack H. Obama
as obscure. Obscure means difficult to understand. Wow, and
that man was elected our president?
God’s word is God’s word Old Testament
or New and we either believe it or we don’t,but
why claim a relationship with God if you don’t agree with
what He’s given us as guidelines to live by? In the above
verses as well as others in chapter 1 of Romans Paul is
telling us that God is giving these people who have ignored
Him over to this vile lifestyle. How do we ignore God? By
reinterpreting the Bible to fit our on sinful lifestyle.
People do this because they would rather live in their sins
than to live as God says.
No people, God is not happy with
homosexuality or any other sin for that matter. And He
certainly doesn’t want people who are blatantly and openly
claiming to live such a lifestyle as the abomination of
homosexuality to be in a position as a teaching authority in
As born again believers we are to leave
our old sinful lifestyle behind and strive to do God’s will.
It will never be His will to remain in our previous state of
rebellion. Homosexuality is a state of rebellion. Born again
believers in Christ would certainly leave that lifestyle
behind. Those who refuse to leave that lifestyle should
re-examine their salvation position.
Here’s an example of how foolish it
would be to place such a person who is the antithesis of a
person God would want in a position of leadership in a
Christian Church. Let’s say the Southern Baptist Association
of America placed an atheist in the position of president
over their whole organization. What could the Church be
taught by an atheist? How much damage would be done by such
a person while being seated in that high official capacity?
Don’t tell me that he/she might become a believer while in
that position. The damage, exacted by such a person, on the
brethren, would be catastrophic. It just can’t happen, not
that it shouldn’t happen, but it can’t.
“But these, as natural brute beasts,
made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things
that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their
own corruption; And shall receive the reward of
unrighteousness as they that count it pleasure to
riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting
themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with
you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease
from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have
exercised with covetous practices; cursed children: Which
have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray...”
2 Peter 2:12-15.
The Apostle Peter is speaking about
people who live in direct opposition to God and bask in
their rebellious corrupted lives. Their minds are only on
evil continually. Is this the person you want as the leader
of your Christian Church? These people have no understanding
of God’s word they are wholly following Satan not Christ.
And this enemy of Christianity (Satan) has thoroughly seared
the senses of these deceived and foolish souls.
For ye were as sheep going astray;
but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your
souls.” 1 Peter 2:25. Peter tells us that Jesus
our Messiah and Savior is the Shepherd and Bishop of our
souls, are we to place a homosexually deviant person in a
position where he/she will assume the posture of a shepherd
of a flock? A flock that supposedly belongs to Christ? What
truths will they teach their flocks? Or should I say, what
lies will they teach their flock as they stand in defiance
to their Messiah? How can a homosexual uphold the whole
counsel of God and blatantly live a life that is contrary to
God’s word? A person such as this can do nothing but lead
If you’re a Christian believer reading
this commentary and you approve of homosexuality as a normal
lifestyle then you are apostate. If your church condones
this activity as normal your church is apostate. Either way
you’re outside of God’s precepts and commandments.
“All scripture is God breathed...”
2 Timothy 3:16a. So where in God’s word does He
condone sin? Any sin? He doesn’t and that’s why the Bible is
disparaged when it comes to homosexuality. That’s why many
countries, including the
United States of America,
have enacted legislation that prohibits preaching
homosexuality as a sin. And that depraved mind is what has
caused God to abandon those individuals to that
lifestyle. Don’t believe me, do the research for yourself.
“Wherefore God also gave them up to
uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to
dishonour their own bodies between themselves:”
Romans 1:24. God not only doesn’t condone the sin of
homosexuality but He actually uses it as a judgment on those
who’ve turned what they once knew as the truth into a lie.
This is exactly the position of the current
Episcopal Church of the United States.
God, because of their Bible knowledge and because of their
arrogance in ignoring His commandments,has
given them up to uncleanness and He’s allowed them to
dishonour their own bodies with the vilest of affections. In
other words while they remain in their disobedience they
will continue to be judged, and homosexuality will abound.
As we read
every day there’s another article about another Christian
organization going apostate. Brethren be ever so watchful
that these abominations don’t take root in your Church lest
ye to are judged. “For the wrath of God is revealed from
heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men,
who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which
may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed
it unto them.” Romans 1:18, 19. God is the
revealer of truth. He doesn’t change, He can’t learn, it’s
against His own nature to lie, and He can’t defy His own
laws. From eternity past to eternity future God will never
condone such an abomination as homosexuality. That’s a
Church will be held responsible by God for their condoning
of such behavior. “Who knowing the judgment
of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of
death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that
do them.” Romans 1:32. Condoning this
insanity is no different in God’s eye than participating in
the abomination itself. All believers should give that
