Gays, Jesus and the Religious Right

August 5, 2010

In Matthew 23 & Luke 11, Jesus responds to questions the Pharisee’s asked in order to test the authority of Jesus. Pharisees were the religious leaders of that era; self-righteouss, condemning know it alls. Jesus was not at all pleased with them for they were externally holy, but corrupt in their hearts.
Pharisee’s are still around in our religious right Christians. Like the Pharisees of Jesus’ time, they know the laws of Scripture, but errouneously interpret Scripture. By doing this they hinder those who want to know God and His Truth. (Luke 11:52)
Todays Pharisees zoom in on an issue they did not in Jesus’ day: Homosexuality. They preach Hellfire to all who “practice” homosexual behavior, believing the Bible teaches that NO homosexual is capable of love within a monogamous relationship and, further, no active gay is a true Christian.
More sophisticated in their false preaching, for sure, but what would Jesus say:
“Woe to you gays who say you love me and your partner?”
“Woe to you, modern day Pharisees?”

You decide. Order “Is God A Gay Basher?” for it will help you find the answer to who is the “Woe to”.
