I’ve stood all I can, I cans’t stand no more
I have listened to all the rhetoric being tossed about Phil of Duck Dynisty, perpetually from Kirsten Powers a Fox News contributor . She keeps stating that Phil is promoting the idea that “Homosexuallity” progresses into a deeper pit. To which She claims is not scriptural. Well is it scriptural or not? I must confess the Phil choose to use two words describing the anatomy of the body, that doctors us every day, but I think in this context He could have made his point without using them
Paul in the first chapter of Romans deals with this very subject. It is a deeper problem than just Homosexuality, the crux of the problem is when men turn the truth of God into a lie. When man who is as the grass of the field dares to challenge a Sovereign God by denying the truth that God by His grace has imparted to mankind through His inspired word, calls for judgement. It is better to confess you have no understanding of God’s word, then to change the truth of God’s word into a lie.
So when people , the one’s spoken of here in Romans chapter one who are born sinners as we all are and then have the gall to tell God He is a liar. Well Kirsten Powers here is what God has to say never mind what Phil said.
Rom 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. They have no defense because what can be known about God has been clearly shown to them. So all men are without excuse. Now the fist step in the progression to the pit. ” Romans 1:21 For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. The next step, ” Romans 1:22 Claiming to be wise, they became fools. The next step ” Romans 1:23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things. Lets go deeper into the pit. ” Romans 1:24 Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves, this is the act of Homosexuality, it is unnatural for the same sex to participate in sexual relations. or for people to have sex before marriage. to sell yourself on the open market. Just what can this all lead to? The greatest sin outside of being born in is is to change the truth of God into a lie. ” Romans 1:25 because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen. This will progress until the unthinkable happens, ” Rom 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; I can think od nothing worst that to have God totally give up on me, it makes me shudder just to thinks of it.
The conclusion of this is , and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.They were filled with all manner of unrighteousness, evil, covetousness, malice. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, maliciousness. They are gossips, slanderers, haters of God, insolent, haughty, boastful, inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, foolish, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
