The duck dynasty homosexual debate. 1213

Its time to weigh in on the duck dynasty vs Homosexual debate.

I’ll begin with an opinion column in usa today. Then i will like you to watch a
Piers Morgan video.

My biblical references and comments to follow….

Phil Robertson.
A nation founded by pilgrims who came here to worship the God of the Bible freely without interference and persecution from ruling elites and those opposed to Christianity’s influence on the culture, has now come to the proverbial fork in the road. After years of attempting to balance traditional Americana with political correctness, those pushing the new “my way or the highway” definition of “tolerance” have decided accommodating our differences of opinion is defeat.

COLUMN: How Christians should respond to hate

Irrefutable history documents that the Bible and its teachings were the biggest influence on those that founded the freest and most prosperous nation in human history. Yet nowadays if you believe that same Bible is true you will either silence your beliefs, or you will be silenced. Just ask Phil Robertson, one of the stars of Duck Dynasty, among the most successful shows on TV.

In an interview with GQ, Robertson plainly repeated simple truths that are fundamental to western civilization — the Bible calls all sexual activity outside of holy matrimony sin and immoral, and it’s natural for a man to be attracted to a woman. You know, the birds and the bees.

For that, the tolerance mob demanded his head on a platter, and the wannabe King Herods that work at A&E, the network that made untold millions off of Robertson’s enormous popularity, gladly obliged. When we have now come to the point that pop culture would rather bow at the altar of rabid political correctness than make a profit, then we have reached a point of no return as a people.

Especially in an era when government believes it has the power to compel a Christian baker to make wedding cakes for homosexuals, compel a Christian photographer to photograph a homosexual union in a state that doesn’t even recognize them, and tell a Christian company it has to provide birth control to its employees in violation of its owners moral conscience. We have reached the point where government believes it gets to play God.

Let the record show which side of this debate is pushing their agenda on everyone else, and using the coercive force of government and bullying tactics in the media and pop culture to do so. It is not the Christians. The sad truth is most American Christians would prefer to leave people in their sin provided Christians are left alone in turn.

For Christians, that is total disobedience to the Gospel. That’s why the culture is at this point in the first place. The American Church has too often been plagued by scandal, or has scandalously pursued money and fame more than the healing of a lost and broken world.

However, the message of Christmas is that God was not content to leave the world drowning in its sins, so He gave us His Son born humbly in a manger to become “God with us.” And that “God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but so that through him the world may be saved.”

Yet those preaching the new tolerance of unconditional surrender and nothing less are dragging Christians who don’t have the courage of Phil Robertson kicking and screaming into the debate. They’re also demanding those of a more libertarian or “live and let live” mindset choose a side when they would rather abstain, for neutrality is no longer an option. This is a movement that would like to change our national motto from “in God we trust” to “you will be made to care.”

Back to that proverbial fork in the road. One sign says “liberty.” The other sign says “political correctness.” Every individual American and every American institution will have to choose one or the other. We can no longer have both, and the truth is we really never could. It was always going to end this way, we just didn’t want to believe it.

I don ‘t watch duck dynasty. Never have. Phil’s crass comments were unacceptable for a christian. No christian should accept homosexuality or gay marriage because The bible condemns it. Those who practice or do not repent of their homosexuality will not see the kingdom of God. Just because you have an attraction, doesn’t make it love. There are different types of love. Agape is higher that philos or erotic love. It is unloving to deceive or support someone by normalizing homosexuality. Doing so may keep some from salvation. How loving is that?

Marc Lamont Hill twists and usually warps the issues to champion ungodly behaviors. Homosexuality and beastiality are different behaviors but in biblical principles violate the same standards. Normal sexuality between a man and a women who are already married to each other for life is part of intimacy that strengthens the marriage union. Fornication, pornography, and all sexual activity that precedes marriage violates chastity or follows marriage violates fidelity and thereby defiles marriage are sinful and violated clear biblical standards. Pragmatically, it undermines intimacy and usually leads to other sins. This is what, I believe, Phil was getting at. In God’s eyes, Violating biblical human sexuality with man with man, woman with woman acts, or beastiality are all forbidden because it violates the same biblical intent and standard. When you violate one without repentance, many will tend to violate others. Making a distinction between sins is human justification or rationalization. The world demands perfect performance in order to undermine the standard. Biblically, the standard is perfect, but our reach will always surpass our grasp. Confess and repent to every one and grow in godliness.
Piers Morgan’s claim to Christianity are vacuous, as demonstrated by his attacks on biblical truth. His example of stoning a girl who isn’t a virgin as proof the whole bible is outdate is not correct. It was part of hebrew civil law that only applied to the israeli theocracy. From our modern perspective it seem harsh. But at the time is was quite progressive, giving protection to those who formerly had no rights. It does reveal how serious God sees sexual immorality,though.

Hills’ flinches as the new testament Corinthian passages were being read, reveals his agenda and bias. What the bible truthfully judges, Hill calls bigotry. By definition, God is not a bigot and everyone who judges and violates God’s moral judgements are wicked.
Both of their efforts to make the case that Jesus, nor the bible condemn homosexuality, were soundly refuted by the other 2 guests. Sodom was destroyed over sexual wickedness including homosexuality and Jesus upholded and expanded the biblical moral standard.
These are biblical judgements, not my opinion. As a christian, i support the biblical standards. Our government is trying to be God. True Christians MUST defend the right to follow Christ in all areas of our country, or welcome greater persecution when they obey Christ!
Christian must not accept or normalize sin. God will judge non-believers. Christians should judge those who claim to be saved. Those who reject God’s judgements judge god. Homosexuality is a sin. Marriage is only between one man and one woman for life.

May God protect America from unGodliness, especially by those who claim to be Christians!
