When are Christians going to stop giving their opinion on GAY MARRIAGE? I pray soon.
PLEEEEEEEEEASE stop taking the bait from the liberal secular progressive Christ-hating mob and just direct them to the Bible/ GOD’S answer on homosexuality. Do not argue with them or debate them – just tell them you believe in the Holy Word of God as it is stated in the Bible. And make sure that you love all people no matter what.
The Christophobic liberal secular progressive mob wants to attack us and condemn us.
It doesn’t matter what “WE” think… it matters what GOD thinks. So stop setting yourself up for attacks – simply direct them to the BIBLE on any questions they might have. Offer prayers and love to them.
Pray for them. Don’t debate them. My personal opinion is… we shouldn’t answer any of those kinds of questions – we should just politely refer them to the HOLY BIBLE.
HERE ARE A FEW OF GOD’S VERSES:
Hebrews 13:4 - Marriage is honourable in all, and the bed undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God will judge.
1 Corinthians 6:9-10 - “Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” (NIV).
Leviticus 20:13 - “If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” (NIV)
Romans 1:26-27 - “Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.” (NIV)
Deuteronomy 23:17-18 - there shall be no whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a sodomite of the sons of Israel Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the LORD thy God for any vow: for even both these are abomination unto the LORD thy God.
1 Timothy 1:9-10 – knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine,
Jude 1:7 - In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.
Underwood Talks Gay Marriage Backlash, London
LONDON (AP) — Carrie Underwood is all about the music, not politics.
Yet the 29-year-old country music star has found herself in a media storm after voicing support for gay marriage.
In an interview with British newspaper The Independent, Underwood, who is married, was quoted as saying she believes everyone should have the right to love. She also noted that her church was gay-friendly and it wasn’t her job to judge people.
Underwood’s comments created a backlash online from those angry with her stance.
Speaking in London, Underwood was uncomfortable revisiting the subject and said she was staying away from reading the reactions.
“I was asked a difficult question in the last five minutes of an interview and I answered it the best way I knew how, and after that I do what I do and I love making music and I generally try to stay out of any kind of controversy,” she told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday.
That said, Underwood is a former “American Idol” and Grammy winner who knows what she says will be heard.
“The role-model word is really scary to me, because no matter what happens in your life, something you do, wear, say, sing, whatever — somebody somewhere is probably not going to like it too well,” she said. “I just really try hard to do what I do and try to be nice to people and make great music and if people think they can look up to that, that’s wonderful. If not, that’s OK too.”
The American star is in the U.K. to win over English hearts with her music. Her latest album, “Blown Away,” is her first actual British release. She’s also playing a sold-out show Thursday at London’s Royal Albert Hall that will feature her latest material as well as older hits like “Before He Cheats.”
She’s promising a laid-back show, compared to past American gigs which had flying pick-up trucks on the stage.
The Oklahoma-born star has been to London before but just on a tourist trip to see the sights.
“I didn’t sign autographs or anything then, nobody was coming to hear me sing, this is a definite difference this time round,” she said.
Underwood hopes breaking into the U.K. market will in some way rebalance the flood of successful English acts like Adele, One Direction and The Wanted who are taking over the American charts.
“We’re kind of being invaded right now, in the U.S, in a good way,” she said. “I do think it would be really cool if I were loved and accepted here, that’s the hope for this week.”
Carrie Underwood says she attends a “gay”-friendly church and can’t imagine how it would feel to not be able to marry the person you want to marry.
In an interview with London newspaper The Independent, Underwood said it’s because of her Christian faith that she supports same-gender “marriage.” “God wanted us to love others,” says Underwood, adding it’s not up to her to “judge anybody.”
Rev. Scotty Smith pastors Christ Community Church in Franklin, Tennessee, whose congregants include the co-writer of Underwood’s song “Jesus Take the Wheel.” He told CBN News that he disagrees with Underwood’s support for homosexual marriage.
“What she said in that interview, unfortunately, has become increasingly, I think, a pretty broken understanding about what the Bible is actually saying,” said Smith. “We ought to listen to the scripture in terms of what it has to say about everything, including marriage [and] including our sexuality.”
