A friend passed this video (see below) to me the other day. It is well worth watching. It's sad that homosexuality is promoted even to the point of threats of arson being ignored by the police. They may well have not been serious threats, but we must try to show these people love and help them reform where possible whetehr the threat was serious or not.
There is a brief mention of resources for sale from Answers in Genesis in this video. I'm not not approving or disapproving of buying from Answers in Genesis. That's your own choice, it's simply part of the video and not a sales endorsement from the Craven Freedom.
Today if you hear Jesus knocking on the door of your heart answer and let Him in.
The reason that it must be preached that homosexuality is wrong is love. This pastor in the video is spending his time which he could spend doing anything he wants, taking abuse for trying to point people in towards the Redeemer.
Jesus can redeem homosexuals, it is not something you are stuck with and you can change. The Bible tells us:
"9 Know yee not that the vnrighteous shall not inherite the kingdome of God? Be not deceiued: neither fornicatours, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselues with mankinde,
10 Nor theeues, nor couetous, nor drunkards, nor reuilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.
11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are iustified in the Name of the Lord Iesus, and by the Spirit of our God."
1 Corinthians Chapter 6 Verses 9-11, King James 1611 Bible
"1 Paul and Timotheus the seruants of Iesus Christ, to all the Saints in Christ Iesus, which are at Philippi, with the Bishops and Deacons:
2 Grace be vnto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Iesus Christ.
3 I thanke my God vpon euery remembrance of you,
4 Alwayes in euery prayer of mine for you all making request, with ioy
5 For your felowship in the Gospel from the first day vntill now;
6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you, will performe it vntil the day of Iesus Christ:"
Philippians Chapter 1 Verses 1-6, King James 1611 Bible
"1 This second Epistle (beloued) I now write vnto you, in both which I stir vp your pure mindes by way of remembrance:
2 That yee may be mindfull of the wordes which were spoken before by the holy Prophets, and of the Commandement of vs the Apostles of the Lord and Sauiour:
3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last dayes scoffers, walking after their owne lusts,
4 And saying, Where is the promise of his comming? For since the fathers fell asleepe, all things continue as they were frō the beginning of the creation.
5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heauens were of olde, and the earth standing out of the water, and in the water,
6 Whereby the world that then was, being ouerflowed with water, perished.
7 But the heauens and the earth which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserued vnto fire against the day of Iudgement, and perdition of vngodly men.
8 But (beloued) bee not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand yeeres, and a thousand yeeres as one day.
9 The Lord is not slacke cōcerning his promise (as some men count slacknesse) but is long-suffring to vs-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance."
2 Peter Chapter 3 Verses 1-9, King James 1611 Bible
