The gay bible

We have grown up in homes where God’s word is treated with reverence and respect. The Bible is received as being God’s revelation to us His people, while we are on earth. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect throughly furnished unto all good works”(2 Timothy 3:16, 17). Not everyone, however, holds the Scriptures in such high regard. A pro-gay translation of the Bible called the Queen James version recently came off the presses. This version has removed all negative references to homosexuality in order comfortably to adapt the word of God to people engaged in a homosexual lifestyle without bothering their consciences with the fact that they are sinning. We as young people and young adults should not be deceived by this development. This is not an acceptable translation of Scripture because the Bible has plenty to say in regard to this sin against the 7th commandment. “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers , nor effeminate nor abusers of themselves with mankind… shall inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9). “Effeminate” here means homosexuals. God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah for this sin as recorded in Genesis 19. King Asa rid the Kingdom of Judah of “sodomites”(1 Kings 15:12a). God therefore condemns this sin and so must we. We must bring a warning to this who have produced this version of the Bible. “And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book”(Revelation 22:19). Further we should tell those who are trapped in this sin that they must repent of it so that they can be ” washed… sanctified and justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Corinthians 6:11). May we always hold the word God of in high esteem and regard it as the only rule on which to base our lives as Christians.
