Lies and Liars Exposed (Part I)

The truth about those who proclaim that homosexuality (same-sex sexual relationships) is all right with God!

A warning about those who deceive occurs 27 times in King James Version, and the wise person is able to discern that Satan is always behind those who deceive for he had no love towards God or God’s Creation.  The deception occurs in the “rhetoric” about the word or label “homosexual” not existing in the bible. It is not mentioned by that label, but the act is graphically described in both old and new testaments.  “Rape” is not mentioned by name in the bible, but the act is graphically described.  AIDS is not mentioned in the bible (along with a host of other diseases/ailments) by name, but if we read Deuteronomy 28 with understanding and know how inference works, we will see it. But these detractors—are simply another means of deceiving and many are receiving and believing the deceptive practices that will keep people from having God’s best produced in their lives.

These are some of the warnings about those who would deceive: (Please read entire chapters to understand the full context and intent.)

For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Matthew 24:24

For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple. Romans 16:18

That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; Ephesians 4:14

Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Ephesians 5:6

If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. I John 1:8

Little children, let no man deceive you: he that doeth righteousness is righteous, even as he is righteous. I John 3:7

And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season. Revelation 20:3

And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. Revelation 20:8

Tom Horner, wrote in 1978, Jonathan Loved David, in which he perverts the scripture and the relationship between Jonathan (Saul’s son) and David who served Saul and Ruth and her mother-in-law, Naomi. What Horner overlooks—intentionally—is the context in which the scripture discusses these relationships.  Apparently, he does not understand the contextual nature of “loving someone” which does not mean they have lust for people. I believe that it is evident from his attempts to “deceive” the masses that he does not know the meaning of love or at the very least, cannot distinguish love from lust. He obviously did not bother to research the meanings from the original language in order to not confuse them. But then again, I believe that was deliberate. When Satan chooses those who can be easily influenced by him, he blinds them to truth to promote his own agenda—hatred of mankind because God loves us more than him, who was created an angel, who made beautiful music in worship of God until he decided that he was better than God—hence the battle and he was thrown out of heaven.

Horner also suggests that Paul’s “thorn in the flesh” was a struggle with homosexuality even though Paul clearly opposes the practice as stated—specifically in Romans 1.  Tom Horner, for the record, is (or was) an Episcopal priest who from all that is stated in his book, is (or was) gay (conclusion based on what he says).

It appears that he very selectively chose to use scriptures out of context to promote a lifestyle in which he was involved and to make it appear that God had no opposition to the lifestyle. This position of course is refuted throughout the Bible. Whatever God said was sin, is sin, and that never changes. Man changes—his belief systems, religions, attitudes, and politics, but God is not a man that He should lie and He said, “He is the same, yesterday, and forever.”

Greg. L. Bahnsen, in 1978 wrote—Homosexuality—A Biblical View, refutes the position and philosophy of Tom Horner.

In 1996, I was inspired by the Word of God and unfolding events to write, It’s Not Normal—The First Word on Homosexuality, a small book in which I write about what current trends are and how they will affect the future of all. This book garnered me a television interview on CTN with Glenn Plummer soon after its publication.

Recently, Rick Warren, in an interview with CNN supports the Bible’s position.

What some groups do not understand is that when Christians say their views align with The Word, we are not saying we “hate” anyone, we are simply standing on God’s Word as truth. That’s the spiritual perspective.


What Did Jesus Say?

“…She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more” (John 8:11)

Jesus, in this verse, is speaking to the woman brought to Him by the Scribes and Pharisees (the religious leaders) who “claimed” the woman was caught in the “very act” of adultery. Under “the law” given by Moses, both the man and woman guilty of adultery should have stoned to death. But they (the religious ones) only brought the woman. If she had been caught in the act, and if they had a right relationship with God, they would have brought the man as well.

Jesus understood what they were doing, which is why he ignored them for a spell as He wrote on the ground. I believe (some could argue) that He was writing the list of sins for which man had been guilty which is why He told them, that whoever had no sin, let him cast the first stone. When they saw what he had written, they all went home. But notice, He told the woman, “go and sin no more”; He did not say, don’t commit adultery again. What He said, included all sin–if we remember who He is, The Son of God, He who was with God from the very beginning–we would have to know that Jesus knew exactly what He meant. Anything The Father had already said was sin, He included in this statement to the woman. All “sin” references were included in His comment to her.

So, when the false prophets, preachers, and other religious folk (without relationship with God) say that, “Jesus said nothing about homosexuality,” they have either been deceived or they are influenced by their true father, Satan and they lie.

“For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect” (Matthew 24:15 NIV) Though this scripture pertains to those falsely predicting Christ’s return, it is appropriate to use in this instance, since all scripture is apt for teaching God’s truths.

The label, “homosexual” or “homosexuality” does not appear in most translations; however the graphic description of the act does appear and only a fool could be misled into believing that the Bible does not address the issue. It is addressed in both Old and New Testament and a person would have to be paid to misunderstand it.

But then there are other words or “labels” that don’t appear in the Bible, but acts are described. Does that mean that those acts are not sin either? It is amazing to me, the lengths that people will go to, trying to justify their acts or beliefs when they know, they are lying to themselves and then influence others to believe them.

God will judge them as He will judge us all. But the ones who deliberately influence people into believing a lie; especially turning the truth of God’s Word into a lie; that person will be judged even more harshly. Don’t take my word for it. Read the Bible with understanding and then develop a right relationship with God and ask Him for yourself, but believe what He says. It will line up with His Word. Jesus said, “He can only say what The Father has said.”

And before anyone gets their underwear bunched into knots, I’m not gay-bashing nor am I homophobic. I simply believe God’s Word to be His truth. If you have a problem with that, then it’s your problem. I am simply tired of hearing people lie on Jesus to justify their unwillingness to abide by God’s Word. Every one of us chooses our final destination–we choose–based upon our conduct and obedience or disobedience. I know where I’m bound and no devil in hell will change or deter me from God’s Truth.

If this message was too much for you today, I suggest you take two aspirin, read God’s Word and pray that I learn to be more tactful in the future.

Father, help us to stand firm in the knowledge of Your Word, knowing Your intent so we will not believe a lie or perpetuate one. In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen!
