Unashamed of God's Word

Unashamed of God's Word -Luke 9:26

Several months ago, on BLN Facebook page I asked for prayer for our country regarding the gay marriage decision. A professing Christian left a comment calling me an unloving bigot, telling me to stick to the gospel. 

Dear Christians, now more than ever before, we must know what the Bible teaches. And we must realize it will never be popular.

"If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you." John 15:19 

The lines are drawn, and Jesus drew them.*

We have a choice: We can study God's truth and speak up for it in love, or we can become people of whom Christ is ashamed (Joshua 24:14-15Luke 9:26). 

Read what the Bible says about homosexuality, and trust that God knows what is best for His creation. Everything that God commands is motivated by love for us.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Romans 1:26-28
Jude 1:7
Mark 10:6-9
1 Timothy 1:10-11
More passages on homosexuality HERE.

I highly recommend you do this week's Bite Size Bible Study because it equips you with Scripture passages critical to this subject.

* It's important to understand that Jesus is the author of all biblical commands even though He is not recorded as mentioning homosexuality. 

God the Father's commands are Christ's commands (John 10:30). The Holy Spirit continued to share Christ's wisdom after Christ's death (John 16:12-15) and the Bible authors recorded the "God-breathed" words of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20-21; 2 Peter 3:15-16). 

The 1-minute devotion Words of Jesus also addresses this subject.

Bible Love Notes


  1. Hi Gail, this is getting to be a seriously dodgy subject out there in Christian Land sadly. It really is very simple and your chosen scriptures point that out. I think the time to decide whom we will serve is becoming very relevant for us as Christians. I hope as it hots up and gets tougher, we all stick together more instead of stab each other in the back verbally! Great post Gail
    God bless

    1. Thanks, Tracy. I really value your blog and your insights.

      You are so right about us being at a point in history where we are being forced to choose between Biblical values and popular values. We need to know God's Word now more than ever.
      God bless you,

  2. Thank you for standing for the truth, Gail. The Bible is very clear. We are called to love our neighbor, not condone sin. There is a difference.

  3. This is the symptom of less people reading their bibles. Truth is, the law of the land must be abided, BUT we as Christians decide to live differently. In America we've had our beliefs tightly woven in with the law. Those things are changing and it is now the time we will see the true nature of men.

  4. A new word I learned from the Hebrew is the ancient Hebrew battle cry, "rak chazak" ( רק חזק - pronounced "rock-a-zock," I believe). It means "just be strong." I think this is what Christians need to remember when the world tries to redefine what the Lord has said. Just be strong. Thank you for standing for truth, Gail. That takes courage in this generation.

  5. Jesus taught us to love our neighbors as ourselves. He also taught us to hate sin. God has been speaking to me a lot lately about loving the person, non-judgmentally, but hating their sinful behavior. This sounds impossible, but through Christ it is not. Jesus loved people, who were sinning, even prostitutes! We are all sinners, broken. Yet, God loves us all. Sin is sin, God showed us mercy and grace by loving while were yet sinners. We must love everyone regardless of their past or current sins. None of are perfect.
