Several days ago I attempted to send you a birthday greeting. The email came back undeliverable and so I searched to see whether I might find another address for you. Having found this address I send you Birthday Greetings!
While looking for your email address I came upon your websites including: www xxxxxxx.html. And now knowing beyond doubt what I had suspected for a couple years, I feel compelled to write regarding these things.
I write as one who himself might have traveled the road you are on; as one who knows something of his own vulnerability and sinful humanness; As one who has received mercy and so extends mercy. “Grace AND TRUTH came through Jesus Christ” (John 1:17).
There are at least two things that are clear in the Bible: 1) God is a God of love and mercy, and, 2) Those who practice such things as you are practicing shall not inherit the Kingdom of God. “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 homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (NKJV)
And yet there is room for repentance for the Scripture continues, “And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.”
There is no such thing as a “gay Christian”. “Gay” and “Christian” are antonyms. The two words do not go together. The Apostle says, “Do not be deceived.” All who carry the nomenclature “gay Christian” are indeed deceived, for there is no such thing. I could call myself a brown cat, but that does not make me so; and if I believed myself to be a brown cat it would be evidence of my being deceived, as also is the case with any who call themselves “Christian” while practicing that which will disinherit them from the Kingdom of God.
This is a painful letter for me to write (and no doubt painful for your to read), but I feel I must write, for in your website and no doubt in other ways, you “Display your sin like Sodom! You do not even conceal it!” (Isaiah 3:9). I could pile up passages that explicitly condemn homosexual activity of EVERY kind. I would be happy to send such Bible passages to you if you are interested.
Leave off the hypocrisy and admit that far from the Christian spirit of love to God and neighbor is the homosexual spirit which is shown with unveiled face in these passages: Judges 19:22-24; Genesis 19:4-9.
Every time you speak the name of Jesus joined to your lifestyle, you trample under foot the blood of the covenant by which you were sanctified (Heb. 10:29). “Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has” done this! The Bible shows us where gay lifestyle and gay rights leads (Judges 19:22-24; Genesis 19:4-9). You apparently are pursuing gay rights for in the face of all that is reasonable and right you have had “ceremony”, thinking it your right to be joined in holy matrimony. The passage in Judges and in Genesis shows where such pursuit of these rights leads.
I seek to be an instrument of mercy; mercy/grace and TRUTH. “Such WERE (past tense) some of you!” Repentance is possible if you have not gone too far. I and my family and my friends are ready to help any seeking deliverance from the homosexual life. For God takes the chief of sinners and turns them into saints; a saint is a holy one, one who has been sanctified, and does not include any who “ARE” but only “such [as] WERE some of you.”
With concern I write!
