Gay Christians' Calling

 In response to  "cmendez ", I felt led to post my comments on this blog for all other gay and

heterosexual Christians....

 

The fact that you are reaching out for answers is an answer in itself. Are there other gay people

alive today who could care less what God thinks of them? The answer is yes. There appears to

be two types of gay people then; ones who are believers in Christ and His saving grace and

those who don't. The same could be said about heterosexuals. Where then is the difference?

The fact of the matter is we are all "bi-natured" (no pun intended) beings. (1 Cor. 15: 49-50)

says..."And just as we have borne the image of the earthly, we shall also bear the the image of

the heavenly. Now I say this brethren, flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; nor

does the perishable inherit the imperishable."  Your gay nature is a part of your flesh and blood,

(perishable) ,and will not inherit the kingdom of God any more than my heterosexual nature will.

However, the heavenly nature, (imperishable,) that we both have recieved by grace in Jesus

Christ is eternal, as 1 Corinthians tells us. Both of our "flesh and blood" natures will come to an

end and be "swallowed up " by our heavenly natures through Christ. That's what we have in

common and no "flesh and blood" nature in this whole world can minister Jesus to people.

You were put here to minister to people through your heavenly nature in Jesus, not your  

perishable gay nature that has nothing to offer a sick and dieing world. Rejoice in your calling

and "procreate" your heavenly nature to the glory of God!

God Bless

 This is a topic that must be discussed further as it is one that truly leads to deception.  We are to love the lost, but we are not to compromise the sin.  If, as a pastor, I stood in front of the congregation and said, "I love women.  God made me that way.  And today I have to tell you that I identify myself as an adulterer.  God made me that way and you just have to accept it.  I told this to my wife, and she is in total agreement."  If I were to say that, you would laugh me all the way out of the church.

So why then are we becoming comfortable in accepting a sin identity as perfectly normal.  Where is the victory of the cross if there's no change in one's life?

As true Christians, we fall off of the path from time to time.  But when we do, we generally fall to our knees in repentance.  Salvation is proceeded by and followed by repentance.....and that is the truth.

The problem with today's church is that it is full of individuals who are not truly saved.  Matthew 7:13-14 tells us, "Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.  For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few."

Pastors are not to be popular, we are to be obedient.  And that means that we must deliver tough love.  The fuzzy wuzzy gospel now being preached is a counterfeit.  There are those who call it love, but they are loving their family and friends right to hell.

What must be put out is the truth.  Jesus regarded this assumption of salvation as deception, for most of his contemporaries were unsaved.  This notion now permeates the American church that deceives its people in believing that a simple prayer leads them to salvation.  Where in the Bible does it say that?

Repentance is nothing that we do.  It is a godly sorrow produced by the pricking of the heart by the Holy Spirit.  Our sin is brought up to the surface and we are convicted of our rebellion.  When one is truly saved they hate sin and turn away from all things that go against God.  That doesnt mean that we will not fall off the path, but it does mean that we are convicted each time that we do.

Unfortunately far to many identify themselves as Christians when they are not.  If you find this message to harsh, know that it is delivered with love.  In this time we will find many false teachers and liars who are re-defining the message of the love of Christ.  We will find many who spew gospels that reflect their world-view and agendas.

Please know that if you embrace sin as your identity, you are not a Christian. Matthew 5:13 You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet.”

 Without repenting (turning away from), then it is lip service. When we accept Jesus into our heart, we confess our sins and repent (Change), if there is no change where is the fruit of the Spirit? If we just pray and say we accept Jesus, but go on living the same life, then we are only fooling ourselves. For God searches the Heart. Trust me when I accepted Christ, there was much repentence  on my part. It is through God's Grace (His Abilities), not mine In Christ that I changed. Do I still repent when I sin, yes, but the sin is getting farther and farther apart and without strife (stress). In fact, I don't focus on sin at all, my focus is on God's Love and Jesus. The Holy Spirit is constantly guiding me and I study God's Word everyday, because I am developing a personal relationship with the Father and Son. I have a hunger to know The Father. It is not out of duty or "earning" God's Love. 

God Loves us irregardless and yes I do know that when we truly accept Jesus, our Spirit is a new creature and is sealed with the Holy Spirit. Hebrews 9:12 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entere in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 

The key is once again we must accept Jesus with our "whole heart", when we truly do; we change, In Christ through God's Grace (His ability not mine).Galations: 21 Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
