Can believers of Jesus Christ assist or promote productions that showcase homosexual acceptance?

I would like to know if the word of God means abstain from all appearance of evil relates to those believers of Jesus Christ who are marketable and beckoned to help in productions that clearly showcase homosexual acceptance. Should they do the production and set aside their religious faith as it is just fictional characters or is their evil intent behind bringing these productions to the mass population... meaning subliminal messages.

I am truly sorry for saying church without giving full meaning of what I was saying. I was trying to lump it all together meaning religious people. People who thought they were serving the true and living God, people who thought they were living right, people who had a way of living other than those who didn't live the way they lived. Like most of us today in our religions, but the church I was speaking of was the church within oneself. Those back then who had scribes and taught their way of life in their regions no matter where Jesus traveled - He traveled through a world of beliefs Hebrews, Israelites etc. and all had a way of life. Much like it is today, nothing is new under this sun - all these religions and no one following the true doctorine. Thus saith the LORD the King of Israel, and his redeemer the LORD of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no God. Isaiah 44:6
Hebrews 6
1Therefore leaving the principles of the doctrine of Christ, let us go on unto perfection; not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,

2Of the doctrine of baptisms, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

3And this will we do, if God permit.

4For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,

5And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come,

6If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.
The same people whom the Lord Jesus Christ ask the Father to Forgive Them, for they know not what they do.
Thank You!

–noun 1. anything abominable; anything greatly disliked or abhorred.
2. intense aversion or loathing; detestation: He regarded lying with abomination.
3. a vile, shameful, or detestable action, condition, habit, etc.: Spitting in public is an abomination.
Abomination

This word is used, (1.) To express the idea that the Egyptians considered themselves as defiled when they ate with strangers (Gen. 43:32). The Jews subsequently followed the same practice, holding it unlawful to eat or drink with foreigners (John 18:28; Acts 10:28; 11:3). (2.) Every shepherd was "an abomination" unto the Egyptians (Gen. 46:34). This aversion to shepherds, such as the Hebrews, arose probably from the fact that Lower and Middle Egypt had formerly been held in oppressive subjection by a tribe of nomad shepherds (the Hyksos), who had only recently been expelled, and partly also perhaps from this other fact that the Egyptians detested the lawless habits of these wandering shepherds. (3.) Pharaoh was so moved by the fourth plague, that while he refused the demand of Moses, he offered a compromise, granting to the Israelites permission to hold their festival and offer their sacrifices in Egypt. This permission could not be accepted, because Moses said they would have to sacrifice "the abomination of the Egyptians" (Ex. 8:26); i.e., the cow or ox, which all the Egyptians held as sacred, and which they regarded it as sacrilegious to kill. (4.) Daniel (11:31), in that section of his prophecies which is generally interpreted as referring to the fearful calamities that were to fall on the Jews in the time of Antiochus Epiphanes, says, "And they shall place the abomination that maketh desolate." Antiochus Epiphanes caused an altar to be erected on the altar of burnt-offering, on which sacrifices were offered to Jupiter Olympus. (Comp. 1 Macc. 1:57). This was the abomination of the desolation of Jerusalem. The same language is employed in Dan. 9:27 (comp. Matt. 24:15), where the reference is probably to the image-crowned standards which the Romans set up at the east gate of the temple (A.D. 70), and to which they paid idolatrous honours. "Almost the entire religion of the Roman camp consisted in worshipping the ensign, swearing by the ensign, and in preferring the ensign before all other gods." These ensigns were an "abomination" to the Jews, the "abomination of desolation." This word is also used symbolically of sin in general (Isa. 66:3); an idol (44:19); the ceremonies of the apostate Church of Rome (Rev. 17:4); a detestable act (Ezek. 22:11).
Ought, as used in Mark 11:25 for example And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses

Exactly...this is what I was implying in my former dialogs....the same amount of understanding, forgiveness, love etc. we extend to one another is the same measurement of the above we will reap. It's all in the Word of God and He came down from this thrown and walked amongst us to show us how. He that abide in Jesus, Jesus shall also abide in him. Wow...the example of Christ Jesus, how he bore that cross for sins He didn't even commit???? My...my...oh how we must lay ourselves before him in humility and surrender, but he gave us a choice, bless His Holy name, He gives us choices....amen??

Oh, Lord I will bless you at all times, forgive me for anything that I have done or will do that is displeasing in your sight. Amen.

In love your sister who is truly diligently seeking.
I think your missing the point...In mark 11 The word ought is referring to having "something" against your brother...It is not the same Greek word used in for example

No my brother, I am not missing the point. I referred to this ought in my post 23 hrs ago and we've been tailgating. Read my response post and then I got another post from a responder which in turn kept scrolling, but I was referring to the ought against the - Can believers of Jesus Christ assist or promote productions that showcase homosexual acceptance? and the dialog stemmed from the willingness to promote and support sins.

Smile....
Embrace our brothers and sisters? The First Great commandment is to love God with etc.
The second is to love thy neighbor like thyself. Homosexuals are possessed by the un-clean spirits of sexual preversions. A casting out is required by the Holy Spirit. I know this is not looked upon as something the World will accept as truth. But the Lord Jesus christ casted out all manner of sickness and un-cleaness. So does the Holy Spirit. As far as the Harlot-all she was asked to do is REPENT!!! let see if the un-clean spirits want to just give up their Host without a fight? Here lies a mission for an Evangelist!
Of course they can repent in earnest and come into God's Light. I don't believe anyone has stated to hate the person, maybe the sin but pray for them if you aren't witnessing to them because intercessary prayer is awesome. Jesus sits on the right hand of God and does that for us every day.
He wasn't hangin' out with her before that though. We cannot accept or perform these things which the word clearly states is wrong. To bring in other sins to compare to another is just sinful itself.........
Apoligize for Speaking the Truth
Nullified by the Weakness of One's Own Speech

When the sin of homosexuality is addressed, often Christians find the need to preface it with the notion "It is no worse than any other sin." Would those who say such things, say the same about murder, rape, etc... Do they really believe that all sins are the same? Of course not! What then is the reason for feeling the need to temper the truth with an apology? Is it compromise, sentiment, or fear?

A cop out! In other words, is it a way to not address the sin of homosexuality like many other blatant sinful practices by professing Christians are ignored in spite of Paul's clear directives, "But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator, or covetous, or an idolater, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat?" (1 Corinthians. 5:11) So is it just an attempt to normalize homosexuality in the grand cesspool of accepted sins in the church?

On the other hand could this be an attempt to tolerate homosexuality? "it is not really ok, but who am I to say so." The popular way of putting it today is "don't judge." This is born not of the "scripture" but of "sentiment." This same false sentimental spirit had invaded the carnal Corinthian church of scripture. And Paul was very clear that we are to judge, "But he that is spiritual judgeth all things" (1 Corinthians. 2:16) Jesus himself says, Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine" (Matthew 7:6.) How can one know that a person is characteristically a dog or a swine, if not by making a judgment? So is this an attempt to ignore the orders of the scripture to judge and not tolerate such behavior?

I am glad to say that I do not believe that either of the above rationales is behind this need to apologize. Yet this should bring no sense of relief as the actual reason for this lack of boldness is far more sinister. The homosexual proponents have so demonized the bearers of biblical truth until they have managed to always keep them on the defensive. The subtlety of this approach by the homosexual proponents has been most affective. This unsuspectingly puts those who stand on the offensive against this sinful practice on the defensive as though a wrong has been committed in speaking against it. So then those who have the power to turn up the temperature of the church and even influence the faulty rationale of the two groups above is demonized in the face of others every time his mouth is opened. Christians spend more time apologizing for the message than communicating the message itself. The result is that the Christian's power to influence others to join the fight is nullified by the weakness of his own speech.

It has appropriately been said that "The Gospel is an offense." Every Christian that bears this message has first been offended by it, only to experience true consolation in believing it. The truth is instead of the church boldly taking them to Mount Carmel challenging, ridiculing and discrediting their voice before the people, they have done so to the church's voice by forcing Christians to wrap their speech in apprehension rather than boldness. Believers must offend the world with great boldness and be willing to face the consequences of the offense. The efforts of Christians must not continue to be spent trying to avoid being seen in this unavoidable light of offense.
