This is a response to a blog written by Mark Hare on the website: http://www.democratandchronicle.com
Sir I humbly submit to you, other Christians and to the world that until you surrender your lives God, His Word and His Son Yeshua(Jesus) Messiah….you will remain blinded by your own thoughts and understanding and continue to believe the lies that this world propagates concerning the issues of homosexuality, gay marriage and every other idea (or ideal) that society deems as the standards that all men must meet. So are we to submit ourselves to God or man?
True Christianity is not believers who only profess Jesus Christ is the son of God with their mouths, but those:
1) Who Believe that He is God who came to dwell among His people in the flesh and become a perfect sacrifice for man’s sins.
2) Who Believe that every Word in the Torah and Bible is inspired by God, is the Truth and must be lived out in the lives of believers.
For the Word of God says in Romans 3: 3-5: 3For what if some did not believe? Shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged. 5But if our unrighteousness commend the righteousness of God, what shall we say?
3) Who will stand against the lies of the enemy of our souls; standing firm on the Truth of God’s Word and preach God’s Kingdom, show the world God’s Righteousness and witness the saving knowledge of Yeshua/Jesus Messiah as Lord.
If you and others could only see that you are victims of is self-righteousness and self-gratification (you make yourselves feel better when you allow yourselves and others to live without any respect of or reverence for God’s Word and Commands)….I believe the term is that you are “man pleasers”. This can only be propagated by those who have no fear of God, but fear man.
And so Mr. Hare, your assessment of the same-sex marriage issue is a testament of your lack of understanding of and reverence for God and His Word. It witnesses that you do not know God by the Spirit and have no communion with Him….I’m so sorry for you and those who share your views.
I want to share with you the following Scripture text which surely you must be familiar with, I pray that you and others will take heed of its message….As God is my witness, it is not a message to condemn, but to bring life to the hearer and doer of it, as is all of God’s Word:
16For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
17For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.
18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, 30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
I pray that those who are decieved will be apprehended by the Word of God which is True and unchanging and that blind eyes will be opened.
Slave Of Yeshua/Jesus Messiah,
