The first question we should seek to answer is, "Did God create homosexuality?" Seems like a no brainer, and on some levels it absolutely is a no brainer. There is never a positive statement in the Bible about homosexuality. And the text is always simple and straight forward. When pro-gay theologians start doing linguistic acrobatics it's a sure sign the truth will be emptied from the Scriptures. No matter how pro-gay theology looks or sounds it is bad theology. Actually the main reason pro-gay theology is so bad is the fact that pro-gay theologians are attempting to change how people approach the Scriptures. If the Scriptures are in fact God breathed, then how will convincing you or me change anything? If God's mind hasn't changed about the sinfulness of homosexuality, then If I'm for pro-gay theology I haven't convinced God to change His thinking about what He said. Pro-gay theologians cast God into their own image and likeness, and they're trying to get every believer to jump on board. The problem is if they can't actually change God then the god they've created for themselves is really not God at all.
"Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and will deceive many."
Pro-gay theology isn't about changing God it is about living in fantasy and the attempted deception of God's people who've put their faith in Jesus and the word God's Spirit breathed. They are creating a messiah for themselves to replace the one and only Son of God. The problem is their messiah is powerless, paper thin, and if you've seen the painting of gay Jesus hanging on a cross with a huge erect phallus, you'd see first hand how shallow and empty pro-gay theology is. I don't know anything about the size of Jesus', but I can tell you that a body having received as much abuse and torture, as Jesus endured, isn't going to be able to produce an erection. The shear volume of blood loss Jesus had to endure didn't allow for much of any bodily functions. A man crucified wasn't going to get any wood on the front of him, because of the wood nailed to the back of him. The ridiculous gay Jesus should be enough to cause anyone to walk away from pro-gay theology. Instead, of course, pro-gay theologians are gaining followers and supporters for gay marriage.
The problem with gay marriage is that like the gay Jesus, sporting a silly cartoon ding dong, there is no substance to, well, there's no substance to gay anything really. When God created marriage He did so for His own purposes. In the New Testament we are told that marriage is a reflection of Jesus Christ's relationship with His Church. Would Jesus attend a gay wedding? Honestly we might just as well ask, "Would Jesus attend the wedding of Bugs Bunny to Elmer Fudd?" The truth simply is not there to be had. God hasn't changed, He hasn't changed what He has said. Gay marriage isn't any more marriage than artichoke marriage is real marriage. Would Jesus have dinner with Batman? Would Jesus be for or against the genetic mutations of the Wolverine and Magneto? Is Jesus "Team Edward" or "Team Jake?" If it cannot stand up to what the true God has to say, then it's no more important than who builds hotels on Boardwalk and Park Place. Christians please stop letting the world frame how we are approach moral issues. Please stop overreacting to worldly empty foolishness and start acting out of Kingdom truth and mandate. Stop piling onto debates and do what is right according to what Jesus was called to come and accomplish by Father God.
Honestly, when will we Christians ever learn what God says and believe God? And don't think I'm just speaking to you. I too struggle to keep my focus on what is true and important. Let's remember what Jesus teaches:
"Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me."
Of course it's a bit harder to believe what Jesus said 2000 years ago than it is to believe what is right in front of our eyes. Gay marriage certainly seems a pretty solid property, and it's becoming more and more solid looking all the time. This is the real problem for Christians today what 'seems' and what is God's reality. The problem for us Christ followers is we keep approaching the world around us with the same kind of worldly reactions they give to us. We want to march, we want to scream with frustration and shake some sense into our government leaders. We want to Bible thump and eat Chick-fi-a until chicken sandwiches pop out our ears! But only Jesus has all authority in heaven and on earth. We're gonna have to put the chicken down, and take up the truth of God. We're going to have to quit allowing the world to dictate to us what is important and worthy of the call and time we've been given. And we're going to have to stop thumping our Bibles and start obeying what Jesus tells us to do. In Christianity believing is doing and doing starts with humble sacrifice not a call to political action! Jesus exercises all authority, but He does so in keeping with the work Father has called Him to do. Jesus said that He always did what He saw the Father doing. When Christ followers decide to do what God wants done, the way God wants it done then we'll see the power of God displayed in front of us. In Christ we can say, "What is gay marriage compared to the world defeating authority and Satan crushing power of Christ?"
So now you know...Jesus would most definitely attend a gay wedding!
