Ten Things You Need to Know about the LGBT “Agenda”

The following is a story written by someone not associated or affiliated with Jesus Name News. Please note that we do not hate, bash, or discriminate against anyone, but we do believe that God made a specific plan for man and woman.

I recently spoke at a community college in Southern California demonstrating that faith and science are not at odds. In posts leading up to the event, I was labeled a “hate pastor” as LGBT activists protested the event. Sadly, due to escalating campus protests across America, a number of sheriff deputies were on stand-by.

My wife and I were perplexed – when did a message of love become a message of hate? We love the LGBT community and I wasn’t talking about this issue that evening. When my wife approached them, she was attacked verbally – from profanity to sexual innuendos. Ironically, those who promote tolerance are often intolerant of those who disagree.

This experience, as well as an upcoming appearance on Fox News.com with Lauren Green to debate a pastor who supports homosexuality, prompted me to define the misunderstandings.

1. TOLERANCE “TOLERATES” DIFFERENCES; LOVE EMBRACES REGARDLESS OF DIFFERENCES.

In 2016, I received a call from a concerned sister whose brother was suicidal. The following day, I had the privilege of visiting him, a male prostitute, in North Hollywood. I spent two hours sharing God’s love, my prodigal story, and hope in Christ. I left him feeling hopeful and encouraged.

A month later, I received a call that he had died in his sleep, possibly from complications of pneumonia. Just prior to his death, he told his family that he was reading my book, Desperate for More of God.Tolerance would not have motivated me to drive three hours round trip, but love did. The message from his memorial is here. Judge for yourself – love or hate: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CT4AISU44bc&t=9s.

    • 2. CHALLENGING THOSE WITH WHOM WE DISAGREE IS OFTEN A CHARACTERISTIC OF LOVE, NOT HATE.

      Parents confront, challenge, and admonish daily. They don’t hate their children. Doctors and therapists challenge lifestyles that are high risk to help their patients. The reason it’s being labeled hate speech is to silence the messenger. In short, they don’t want to hear.

  • 3. THE CREATOR MADE HIS PLAN OBVIOUS.

    Jesus said that since the beginning of creation, God created them male and female in order that they would be joined together and become one flesh – to be fruitful and to multiply. He adds, “Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate” (Mark 10:9). Males and females were created purposely and complementary by design.

      • 4. THE EXCEPTIONS PROVE THAT THERE IS A RULE.

        The question arises, “But not all married couples can have children, thus procreation is not necessary?” True, but this fact does not support homosexuality. Some are unable to conceive, and some have no desire for marriage or sex – exceptions do not void the rule. 1 Corinthians 7:2 is very clear that each man should have his own wife and each woman her own husband.

    • 5. THERE IS NO SCRIPTURAL SUPPORT FOR HOMOSEXUALITY.

      Some argue, “The Bible is not an ethical textbook – culture changes and so does truth.” Not so. Not one moral law that God gave is obsolete, from adultery to fornication to homosexaulity. Things that were harmful then are harmful now. They are never painted in a positive light. They caused deep pain then as they do now. Some have even suggested that Naomi and Ruth and Jonathan and David had same-sex relationships. This gives the phrase “grasping for the wind” new meaning. This is eisegesis in its purest form – reading things into the text that are not there.

      Some parents change their view when they find their son or daughter in an LGBT lifestyle; confused, they “accept” the lifestyle, but feelings are not a gauge for truth. Instead, offer hope and remind them that we all struggle with something. If a child sins in the area of anger, infidelity, or addiction we don’t change the Scriptures to fit their behavior, we offer hope in the midst of the struggle. Why should homosexuality or transgenderism be any different? No matter how many laws are passed in favor of gay marriage, it will not change God’s mind.  Times change; truth does not.
