12/15/14 “Can A Person Be Gay And Still Be A Christian?” – Pastor Shane Idleman

Many “Christians” are now suggesting that those who embrace the homosexual lifestyle can live in harmony with biblical Christianity. And more and more Evangelicals with gay children are challenging the church to rethink its position. But can we re-think truth? Truth is not flexible when it comes to absolutes—it’s solid and unyielding. When children struggle with sin, parents should point them to the light.

4/26/2014 – “Gay Marriage : What Does God Say Not Jars Of Clay” – Shane Idleman

Many say that we cannot take a position on homosexuality because all positions will hurt someone. Here’s my question: “Are those who defend homosexuality, or who say nothing, truly loving the homosexual, or are they simply seeking to avoid conflict?” If they are more worried about being liked than being truthful, do they really care for homosexuals more than the person who is willing to risk their reputation, and quite possibly their safety, in order to speak the truth in love? The answer is obvious: Authentic Christians love the truth, and others, so much so that they are willing to risk the consequences of confrontation in order to help others. This is genuine love, not hatred. “When we become so tolerant that we lead people into mental fog and spiritual darkness, we are not acting like Christians—we are acting like cowards” (A.W. Tozer).

4-3-14 “An Open Letter to Brendan Eich; Pastor Says, “You Don’t Have to Apologize””

My hope is that readers will read the entire article before drawing any conclusions. I have nothing but compassion for those trapped in the homosexual lifestyle. Those who strongly believe in the Bible and God’s will regarding sexual behavior, also strongly believe in unconditional love and forgiveness. To say that authentic Christians hate, or fear, those trapped in the homosexual lifestyle demonstrates a gross misunderstanding of the principles of the Christian faith. To “speak the truth in love” simply comes from a desire to honor God, and to truly love and care for others.

Phil Robertson, of Duck Dynasty fame, sparked controversy after saying that homosexual behavior is a sin.

The PC (politically correct) police went on high alert and encouraged suspension from his popular A&E show for expressing views about homosexuality. “It is a messed up situation when Miley Cyrus gets a laugh, and Phil Robertson gets suspended,” Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana said. Clearly, our nation is now calling good evil and evil good.

Prop. 8… Seven Points Federal Judge Overlooked

August 7th, 2010 | Posted by admin in Articles - (Comments Off on Prop. 8… Seven Points Federal Judge Overlooked)
  1. To say that authentic Christians hate, or fear, those trapped in the homosexual lifestyle demonstrates a gross misunderstanding of the principles of the Christian faith. To “confront in love” simply comes from a desire to honor God, and to truly love and care for others. We must extend compassion but without compromise.
  2. If warning, confronting, challenging, advising, an admonishing can all be categorized as “hate-speech,” then, based on this definition, many parents hate their children. But of course the opposite is true: Parents love their children, so much so that they warn, confront, challenge, advise, and admonish daily. So why are those who do the same often characterized as “hate-mongers”?
