Some Predictions from a Non-Prophet (on the Homosexual Agenda): Part 2

16 Jul

In our first blog on this issue, we looked at I Corinthians 6 where the Apostle Paul says:

 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 

As Paul lists these nine categories of sin, he is certainly making the point that those who practice these sins are wrongdoers who will not inherit the kingdom of God (= go to be with God when they die).  This CATEGORICAL STATEMENT is followed by a CLEAR DECLARATION: “and that is what some of you were” (v. 11).  Notice Paul uses the word “were.”  {Some have suggested that Alcoholics Anonymous’ insistence that recovering alcoholics should continue to call themselves alcoholics may be open to some criticism here}.

His point seems to be that some of the Corinthian believers were previously sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, men who had sex with other men, thieves, greedy, drunkards, slanderers, and swindlers.  Those behaviors had ceased once they became followers of Jesus.

Paul’s CLEAR DECLARATION is followed by his pronouncement Screen Shot 2015-07-07 at 10.59.01 PMof God’s CLEANSING ACTIONS in those believers (v. 11).  What did God do for those who came to Him?  He performed three specific actions:  He washed them; He sanctified them; and He justified them.  We should not be surprised that a BIble-denying world mocks the need for such sinners to be washed, sanctified, or justified.

Although we must love sinners and seek to win them to the Lord, what ought our reactions be to those who practice sexual immorality, engage in idolatry, commit adultery, have the habit of thievery, are marked by greed, live a life of drunkenness, are characterized by slander, or look to swindle others?  Should we not be disgusted, deeply Screen Shot 2015-07-08 at 3.41.25 PMconcerned, outraged at these sins that disqualify someone from HEAVEN?!  If so, what ought to be our response to those of the fourth category who “have sex with other men”?  They, like we all, need the cleansing power of the Savior’s blood.  They need to be set apart (sanctified) to God.  They desperately require the justification that can only come from the forgiveness offered in the gospel.

If you agree with those sentiments, my friend, then you will be in for some serious challenges to your faith in the coming days. (to be continued)
