Christians are the ‘easy’ target
I was reading the headlines on the Drudge Report when I came across this title; PAPER: Elton John claims Jesus was gay…
You can read the ‘article’ at this link; http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/bizarre/2859895/Elton-John-claims-Jesus-was-gay.html
There is a discussion page about this which I have linked to here; http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20100220100435AAqpMp8
Now what do we do with this? First consider the source. Elton John is a homosexual man who probably feels condemned by Jesus and His doctrine. I’m sure if Elton ever read the bible it was only to find ammunition to further his ’cause.’ Therefore to make Jesus gay is to make homosexuality a good thing…an acceptable thing…I mean, if Jesus is on your side, well then your in better hands than if you had Allstate insurance and drank V8 every morning. right.
Of course I’m being flippant but is there not a cause.
Now there will be Christians who get ‘up in arms’ over this statement and that is exactly what Elton wants! He has thrown out this disgusting statement to make you mad!
Now I have just two thoughts that I would like to air on this subject;
1. The Bible says in Isa 5:20 “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter! ” What that means is that Elton is in trouble. I’m sure he’s shaking in his booties right now…he doesn’t see any danger because to him, God is just an impotent invention of those pesky Christians who walk around saying things like: Shame on you…your a bad man… and other things. To Elton and his homosexual brethren, God hopefully doesn’t exist and if He does, well then they will all have a big party in hell together. So goes the perverted mind.
But secondly; Christians are an easy target. We always have been because we follow Jesus Christ who said; “Love your enemies and do good to those who hurt you and pray for those who despitefully use you and persecute you for My sake.” You see, Christians don’t seek vengeance on those who hate them but rather we seek to show sinners the way to life just like we sinners were shown the way to life in Jesus Christ. We aren’t better than anyone and we are definitely not ‘holier than thou.’ But we were saved from the power and penalty of our sins by the grace of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. Now this mindset gets us into trouble as we are seen as helpless sheep who are easy prey for the ravening wolves of this world…such as homosexuals!
And lastly I find it interesting that Mr. John has been absolutely silent about the attitude of muslims concerning homosexuality. You see, they believe in executing homosexuals just because they are homosexuals. But herein is the key point. If Mr. John were to say that Mohammed was gay, I don’t believe the muslims would be as lenient as we Christians. They’re not into that cheek turning stuff. Indeed I don’t believe he would live out the week.
So swing your little gay fists Mr. John. Strut around and act tough because you think you have really stuck it to the Christians this time. But let me tell you this; YOU HAVE DONE NOTHING!…you haven’t hurt God…Jesus is unharmed by your silly little word games. He knows that your time is short, your life just a vapor that is here today and gone tomorrow. But ponder this; 2Pe 3:3-10 says “Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.” 5 For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, 6 through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. 7 But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men. 8 ¶ But do not let this one fact escape your notice, beloved, that with the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like one day. 9 ¶ The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. 10 But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat, and the earth and its works will be burned up.
Have a nice day!
