C.H. Spurgeon

Sinners, let me address you with words of life; Jesus wants nothing from you, nothing whatsoever, nothing done, nothing felt; he gives both work and feeling. Ragged, penniless, just as you are, lost, forsaken, desolate, with no good feelings, and no good hopes, still Jesus comes to you, and in these words of pity he addresses you, "Him that cometh unto me I will in no wise cast out."

Is Obama Slandering Christ?

According to BPNews, it appears that Obama is trying to justify homosexuality (“his belief in same-sex civil unions”) by the use of Jesus Christ’s Sermon on the Mount.

Obama’s thoughts concerning same-sex unions:
"I don't think it should be called marriage, but I think that it is a legal right that they should have that is recognized by the state. If people find that controversial, then I would just refer them to the Sermon on the Mount, which I think is, in my mind, for my faith, more central than an obscure passage in Romans. That's my view. But we can have a respectful disagreement on that."

Wait a second, what exactly do you mean by “obscure passage in Romans?”

Obscure:
1. (of meaning) not clear or plain; ambiguous, vague, or uncertain
2. not clear to the understanding; hard to perceive

Let’s take a look at the obscure writing of Romans concerning homosexuality shall we?

Romans 1:
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And 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.

So, we have women changing “the natural use” going “against nature,” and even clearer in the text it declares “men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly.” Obama, or anyone for that matter, may be able to try their hardest to claim obscurity concerning female homosexuals, but as for the men homosexuals you can’t get much clearer.

Now let’s take a short look at the Sermon on the Mount:

Matthew 5:
6 - Homosexuality is a sin not righteousness, so this voids any idea that the teachings of Christ’s Sermon on the Mount are even remotely pro-homosexuality or anti-Scriptural (in contradiction to) concerning such in Romans and elsewhere.

17 – Christ came to fulfill the law not to destroy such, whereby the law declared homosexuality a sin in Leviticus 18:22; 20:13.

If Obama is cleaving to Matthew 7:1 “Judge not, that ye be not judged,” he may want to take a little trip to 1 Corinthians 2:14-16.

Clearly, the only obscurity lies merely within the heart that refuses to submit itself to the authority of Scripture and feels no guilt when trying to twist the very words of Christ to condone sin.

Read for yourself:
Matthew 5-7
Romans 1

Even if homosexuality IS a sin, and even if God doesn't want people to be homosexuals, that doesn't give MEN the right to enforce God's will. If you believe in God and believe that the Bible is the truth, then you listen to it - you believe homosexuality is a sin, you don't lie with man, and you judge not lest ye be judged. If you DON'T believe in God, then the Bible doesn't APPLY to you. Why can't Christians understand that? The ONLY thing preventing gay marriage from being legal is the argument from the religious who use the Bible as 'evidence' that it should not be allowed, which is completely ridiculous. Socitey has its own laws, and those laws say that homosexuality is NOT a crime. If you don't like gay marriage, don't get one.

My point was, if a person wants to support homosexuality, I would ask they do so without trying to use Scripture (i.e. the words of Christ) which clearly do not support it.

You still haven't learned, have you?

Trying to use the bible as a moral authority is about as effective as taking candy bars for cold remedies....the bible is replete with controversial passages, contradictions and outright cruelty.

The very fact that the whole of Europe took two millennial to rid itself off the vices of evil religious doctrines and crimes bears testament to the incompatibility of the bible with modern day ethics.

Your outright bigotry truly amazes me. You are indeed the ultimate stone age moron.

I don't think guys like myself support homosexuality. It is more of a human rights issue. Two consensual adults engaging in sexual acts should not be persecuted, and I don't think it is any of your business to butt into (pun intended) someone else's bedroom.

John Bunyan

To be saved is to be preserved in the faith to the end. 'He that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.' (Mt. 24:13) Not that perseverance is an accident in Christianity, or a thing performed by human industry; they that are saved 'are kept by the power of God, through faith unto salvation.' (1 Pet. 1: 3-6) But perseverance is absolutely necessary to the complete saving of the soul…. He that goeth to sea with a purpose to arrive at Spain, cannot arrive there if he be drowned by the way; wherefore perseverance is absolutely necessary to the saving of the soul.
