«Approval of Homosexuality has destroyed family values in the West»

20 Pastors in Uganda demands an apology from pastor Rick Warren. The US Pastor has rebuked a law that bans Homosexuality in Uganda as «un-Christian».

Pastor Rick Warren gets pepper from Uganda for defending Homosexuality.

«In a globalized world, this western takeover of institutions by homosexuals has turned into international promotion of homosexuality and of other vices like abortion and pornography in other countries».

The Ugandan pastors, calling themselves the Uganda National Pastors Task Force Against Homosexuality. They represent the National Fellowship of Born again Churches, Uganda Joint Christian Council and the Roman Catholic Church in Uganda.

In their letter, the group of 20 denominational leaders said the Purpose Driven Life author caused «distress» in their nation after he requested they speak out against the Anti-Homosexuality Bill 2009 currently awaiting approval in the Ugandan Parliament.

The rebuttal was spawned after the Saddleback Church founder issued a video statement on Dec. 11, calling the proposed bill «unjust, extreme and un-Christian toward homosexuals» The bill would impose the death penalty for some homosexual acts and force pastors to report conversations about homosexual practices. Warren said the measure would also squelch «the freedom to make moral choices».

My comment:

There is absolutely no Biblical verses that approve Homosexuality as anything but punishable sin.

The is no Biblical defense for what Rick Warren is saying. Warren has become a politician, not a man who preach the Word of God.

Leviticus 20:13

If a man lies with a male as if he were a woman, both men have committed an offense (something perverse, unnatural, abhorrent, and detestable); they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them. (Amplified Bible)

The Jewish Apostle Paul also calls homosexuality a perversion of natural sexual relations:

1 Corinthians 6:9

Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality (Amplified Bible).

Shall homosexuals be put to death?

Absolutely not. In the New Covenant of grace people who lie, steal, and commit sexual sins can live. Live by the mercy and grace of the Messiah who bore such sins on the cross at calvary. But such sins still have to be branded as sins, and there is a need for call to repentance. Those who defend sins like homosexuality, needs to take a deeper look into what Jesus says about having a millstone around their neck.

Matthew 18:6

But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.

    1. Dear Martin.

      Shalom, and thanks for this link. I recommend all my readers to see this video comment by Rick Warren. Let me know what you feel.

    2. Dear Martin.

      I am as you know a strong supporter of Purpose Driven Life, and have distributed free books. I am also against death penalty. But again I must say I am disappointed over Rick Warren`s comment.

      Warren say`s: «God intended marriages to be between a man and a woman». This sounds like an excuse for Homosexuality, not being exactly the right thing, but…

      Rick Warren seems to be afraid to say in public that homosexuality is a sin, and a sin that leads to death. God of the Bible is not a God of promotion of good intentions. He is a God that will eventually send hundreds of millions of people to Hell because they did not repent. That should be the concern of a man who call him self a pastor. He did not read or quote a single verse from the Bible in regards to homosexuality. This sounded to me like politically correctness.

      Let me also remind all of you, that homosexuality has been a crime for the last 3.000 years. Only in our generation this has been changed, on an agenda of false humility. And look at all the sexual immorality that now keeps on rolling into our society as satanic poison.

      1. Your God would send millions of people to eternal damnation in flames. How is that love? And actually the Greeks, Romans, Chinese and many more actively practiced Homosexual acts. Why do you think there is so much promiscuity in the gay community? Could the reason be that it is illegal for them to have a life partner in many countries? “Love thy neighbor as you love yourself”(What you’re doing doesn’t seem like love to me),”Thou shalt not steal”(Stealing gay rights are we?),”Thou shalt not kill”(The hate you spread causes gay teens to kill themselves DAILY). You break your own tenants and laws and then you preach the divine word and claim to be repentant and Christianly. You are more full of this “Satanic poison” than you would care to admit.

        My comment:

        He is not my God, neither yours. He is God. His dwelling place in the Kingdom of Heaven is a sin free zone. On Earth, He purged out sin by the blood of His Son, Jesus of Nazareth.

        Can any sinful man enter Heaven?

        Not without being cleansed with the blood of the Lamb of God. Either you like this or not, this is the truth.

        And this is good News. When we leave this Planet to spend eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven, we leave all illness, injustice, lies and hate behind. Perfect. Hell is a place where all this evil will be stored up for eternity. It is a hot place, where I do not want anyone to spend their endless days.

      3. woman have been mistreated for thousands of years; only in our civilization have they been given equal rights–therefore, equal rights are wrong…STFU

  1. You guys are being hypocritical. Fornication, pride, taking the lord’s name in vain, lying, not worshipping the one true God are all sins as per the bible. Homosexuality is just ONE AMONG MANY sins that exist, and according to Christian theology all sins are sins. There is no single sin greater or lesser than other sins.

    Should liars, fornicators (i.e. unmarried people having sex)and proud people be sent to jail too? Of course you won’t say yes, even if those ARE also sins.

    You can see the hypocrisy there.

    Goodness! I am glad to be an atheist – no need to worry about imaginary angry gods in the sky. I do not agree with Rick Warren on many issues but I am glad he openly, and publicly denounced this inhumane bill.

    1. Dear Paul.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      My comment:

      I agree with you. A sin is a sin. Even if you are an Atheist, you must agree that sin should not be blessed?

      In regards to jailing sinners. People who lie under oath are sent to prison. False testimony are also an punishable offense. Why?

      To have sex with minors, is also a punishable offense by imprisonment. Same sex or opposite sex does not matter. Its called rape. Why? Simply because civilized society is ruled by the Law of a God you do not believe in. He gave us laws for our own good through a Jew called Moses.

      1. Question – do you commit sin, and if so which ones? Should you be arrested for each and every sin you have ever committed?

      2. Dear Paul.

        Shalom, and welcome with this comment.

        You asked:

        Question – do you commit sin, and if so which ones? Should you be arrested for each and every sin you have ever committed?

        My reply:

        Yes I sin, and I deserve to die and go to Hell. Thats a much worse punishment than being put in prison.

        The only way I can avoid being sent to Hell, its to admit I am a sinner. The moment I call sin the truth, or promote sin I have lost my soul. Let all sinners like me and you be sent to prison, If that could save us from the coming wrath of God.

  2. The Bible does prohibit sex between men (homosexuality) in Leviticus 18:22 and 20:13. It also criticizes sex between men in Romans 1:27, 1 Corinthians 6:9 and 1 Timothy 1:10. Nevertheless, it can be shown that the prohibition and criticism do not apply today when the sexual activity causes no harm. Also the prohibition and criticism do not apply today because they applied only to the ancient Israelite and Roman cultures. The Bible criticizes, but does not prohibit, sex between women (Romans 1:26). Full reasons for these conclusions are given on the Gay and Christian website (www.gaysandslaves.com).

    1. Dear Raycol.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site.

      I am fascinated by your comment. You do agree that the Bible prohibit sex between men.

      Romans 1:27
      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.

      But strangely you overlook that sex between women is also banned.

      Romans 1:26
      Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.

      You also writes:

      do not apply today when the sexual activity causes no harm.

      My reply:

      HIV that causes AIDS is a sickness that struck homosexual men. Why? If men and women had not committed the sin of adultery, this sickness could never had spread. Adultery also breaks up families, and is the biggest disease ever, now at all time high.

      Let all men be liars, and God of the Bible the truth.

    1. Dear Anette.

      Shalom, and welcome to this site. Thanks for this comment. Some people feel I am to harsh in my writings about Homosexuality. But how can that be? The Bible, both the Old and New Testaments says this kind of sex is a perversion.

      Is there any other activity, sin or not sin, that is branded as a perversion?
