Taking Words and Phrases Out of Context

Three examples of errors in gay revisionist arguments where a phrase is taken out of context to contradict the passage. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Devotions #GayRevisionist

Revisionist gay arguments often use one Scripture to refute another.

Actual examples:

✔1. Because Genesis 2:18 says it's not good for man to be alone, they claim that God wants homosexuals to have partners. 

✔2. Because Matthew 7:15-20 says that false teachings bear "bad fruit," they claim that teachings against homosexuality are false because they make homosexuals feel lonely and rejected. 

✔3. Because the first chapter of Romans condemns "unnatural" sexual activity, they claim that it's natural for gays to have same-gender partners and unnatural for them to have other-gender partners (Romans 1:26-27).

Basically, they have removed words and phrases from their context and used that to refute the actual meaning of the passage.

✔1. When God says it's not good for man to be alone, He immediately explains His design: woman is man's suitable helper (Genesis 2:18-25). 

✔2. Biblical teachings correct, rebuke, and instruct. This often causes conviction of sin, sorrow over sin, legitimate guilt and shame (2 Timothy 3:16-17; James 4:7-10). The bad fruit of false teachings is acceptance of sin, and that is the bad fruit of gay revisionist teachings.

✔3. The first chapter of Romans not only condemns "unnatural" sexual unions. It specifically defines them as same-gender unions (Romans 1:26-27).

Scripture leaves no doubt about God's condemnation of homosexuality. It is a lifestyle that damages the hearts and souls of those who participate in it, and we should pray for people involved in it.

Christians must treat homosexuals kindly, graciously, and fairly. But the most hateful thing we can do is approve of behavior that keeps them from knowing the freedom and love of God.

Homosexuals are not singled out by God. All those who persist in sins against God's will are in the same position:

Three examples of errors in gay revisionist arguments where a phrase is taken out of context to contradict the passage. #BibleLoveNotes #Bible #Devotions #GayRevisionist1 Corinthians 6:9-10:  "Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God."  

And don't forget verse 11: "Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God." 

If any homosexuals are reading this, I pray that they will join me and other sinners who have turned from our sins and been washed, sanctified, and justified in Christ!
