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.

Elder Harevey Says: I AM Homophobic and very PROUD of it!!!!!!!

My Reply:

No, Elder I cannot agree with other Christians being homophobic. Neither will I post that on my tshirt or confess that out of my mouth. I just get a bit agitated when I hear it enough in the media that everytime someone takes a stand against sin that they are being homophobic. I have no reason to fear a homosexual as long as they respect who I am in stay in their place of how they conduct themselves. We have no reason to be homophobic, that is a fear that is ungodly. God didn't give us a spirit of fear but of Love, power, and sound mind(In Timothy). Now, I will say will I go around their activity no. I will minister to them if the spirit of the Lord is leading me and I have ministered to someone who was involve in that lifestyle. Growing up as a child and being sexually abused opened doors of that behavior in my life out of lack of understanding about it thinking it was okay to play the role. I have no reason to be in fear of this and neither should you. This is how the media wants to portray this fallacie aboiut the church and that is what the agenda of these organizations want us to believe or think. I don't have to run when I see them and neither should you.
Oh man! I am trying to make a correction on what I just added and it won't allow me to do so. Where I put that I played the role, I really was meaning when I would play with my friends as a child. So, I want to make this clear. Elder, I know you were referring this to someone but of course I had to add my response that I am not a "homophobic" Christian.
Homo's are people too. They just choose their sin. I dont believe people are born this way. Why? Because the Bible tells us so. Does it not say that God does not give us any temptation that he also does not provide away out of? Now to me the homosexual life style is not a temptation. However, if we show hate and judgement towards a person we are not following our faith. Didnt the good book tell us to all ways be ready to give an explanation of Gods word? We must love all! We dont have to agree with their lifestyle. Whether it be a homosexual, thief, liar, or killer. They are all sins. The word came for the sick. They need it the most. How will they get it if we close our hearts. Love the sinner NOT the sin. Easier said than done. However, eachone of us have been choosen to lead his people. We must strive for this perfect love and hold on to our faith and let our works show for themselves. Maybe a kind word from the bible to show a person the real love of our father rather than just telling them "YOU WILL BURN IN HELL FOR THIS" Yes it is true that if we dont repent from sin then we will be heading that direction. However, if we focus in on Gods love and healing, forgiving side, then maybe these people who fall for sin can now stand for Christ.
I wonder if anyone has really examined or searched the scriptures for the little treasures in them. Let me show you something.

Luke 1:13-15 JOHN THE BAPTIST IS FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AT BIRTH

13But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
14And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
15For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

Luke 1:41 JOHN’S MOTHER IS FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

41And it came to pass, that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:

57Now Elisabeth's full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son.

Luke 1:67 JOHN’S FATHER IS FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

67And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying,

********
Pimplēmi – Greek word for “filled”
Means to accomplish, to furnish, to fill or to be filled
*********


What is interesting is that this same “filling” of John and his parents is the same Greek word used for the filling in Acts 2.

Acts 2:1-4 – THE BELIEVERS IN THE UPPER ROOM WHERE FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT

1And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
2And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
3And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
4And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.


So, if a John could be “filled” with the Holy Spirit from birth, why couldn’t another person be filled with an “unholy spirit” at birth? I'm not saying that this is the case with those who say they are born homosexuals... just giving you something to think about.

THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO... HMMMMMM....
I trust that a true believer would merely stand on the word. Knowing what our Father teaches us about perversion, sexual immorality, adultry, fornication, homosexuality when all is said and done we still should have the right to trust in our beliefs, and stand. If we don't stand for the word of God - we will fall for anything.

story: many years ago I knew a great man of God pastored a huge congregation of true saints. somewhere down the line the church needed a organist, and the young man they found happened to be (gay). The entire church went to this Bishop told him that before the young man was put over something like worship that he needed to be delivered. The Bishop thought it okay, said God was working on him. A great deal of the saints left refusing to allow this. A few years later when I first came to the Lord I saw that Bishop and because I knew he was a mighty man of God I loved him. Anyway I approached with excitement told him who I was, and told him who my mother was. When he opened his mouth I thought I would die. (The spirit had taken him over, his entire church was soon after filled with homosexuals and lesbians all the saints were gone.) He died a year or so ago, and I only pray that God restored him before he went on. So my moral to the story is: we can't take down no matter how unimportant it may seem. Satan always has a tramp set when the door opens.

Be blessed.
This is sad. Alot of that happens all the time. There is a gentlemen who I was told plays the piano really well. He dresses in women clothing and now has really come out with it. It is just....Lord help!.
I believe your question answered itself. You said do we have to set aside our religious FAITH. Remember, Jesus said "deny me before men and I will deny you before my father". IF we have to set aside or faith, are we not denying him. How can we be part time believers? We cant. We serve one or the other. We cant have 2 masters. I dont hate Homosexuals. They are Gods people as well. However, their actions do go against how God wants them to live. So do thieves, adulters, and drunks. (Just to name a few of those great sins). There is no gray area when it comes to the Bible. Man may twists Gods word, but if you read his word the way it is written your question is answered loud and clear. Remember he said that if we seek friends with the world it puts as an enemy of God. OUCH!!!!
Man I have been gone too long and been too busy. Sister Nightrissa there is nothing Christian (following Christ Jesus) like in men being with men and women being with women period. IT is totally wrong in God's eyes so therefore if you follow HIm it should be wrong in your eyes also. Are we to be unequally yoked? I think not! No way are you to comprimise God's Word or views with man's tradidtions or views. People use God's Words all the time to justify things that are totally against God and homosexuality is one of them. There is something wrong with a person saying they are followers of Christ but are believers in homosexuality. You can pray for that person and love that person but never condone that action or way of life. There are things that God hates! We should love what He loves and hate what He hates. Sister Nightrissa there have been some great responses and some not so great to your question. Let God show you in His Word because He will. God bless you.
Thanks for your kind words my Brother. It's good to be back and as always you know I like how you bring it. Your truths digs in as it should be instead of all the warm fuzzy speeches. Peace and Love to you.
I will say this, there is danger in categorizing "sin" as one being worse than the other unless God's word has pointed out such a thing. Homosexuality and fornication and lying and murder.....not much difference. If it a production that propogates lying or cheating or stealing or homosexuality or anything that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ....why would we want to promote it?

However, instead of sharing my opinion, I want to share God's word on the subject. Let's look at Romans 1:18-32

18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

There is a extensive list here of things being done by men and women ... things that unholy and self-focused at the core. But what caught my attention more than all of what is stated in the list above is what is written in verse 32. Verse 32 says that there is a built-in judgment from God for those who commit such things...but not only the people who do it but there is judgment for the people who HAVE PLEASURE in the people who do such things.

Well we must go to the original writing to find out exactly what is going on....syneudokeō is the Greek word for pleasure in this passage. This Greek word is also translated as consent, agree with, or applaud. My question is, how can two walk together unless they agree. How can one be yoked in a committed relationship (not just marriage but business as well) unless they both agree about what they are committed to?

How?

We believe that love means tolerance and it doesn't. Jesus brought not only the love of the Father to us but He came to bring a sword! But people even get that twisted and believe that speaking the truth in love means we are to be soft and timid. That is contrary to Christ's behavior and teaching. He did not give us a spirit of timidity or fear but of power and a sound mind so that we can say NO to situations that do not give God glory and honor and that will defile us.

I grow so weary of believers who are so far left that they won't speak up for God or so far right that all they want to do is condemn both believers and non-believers and nothing is getting accomplished either way.

Christ was the Master of being "separated" from the world while IN the world. He could dine with sinners, He could speak, touch, teach and love sinners but He didn't participate in their sin. He was separate from it and so should we be. But that doesn't mean we ostracize and become pious and leave them drowning in their sins without throwing them the rope of hope that is in Christ.

To such Believers considering what you mention in your question posed here, I would say to them "what is your motive?" If your motive is to influence those persons and effect change in their lives then do you have to promote or support what they do in order to accomplish your desired goal?

May God continue to teach through you my Sister in Christ.
I agree that sin is sin and no sin is less or greater unless it's the unpardonable sin of blampheme agains the Holy Spirit. It's like when they catagorize lies as though some are less than others. A lie is a lie no matter how some view it as small or large it is still a lie and so is sin. Another is white and blue collar crimes as though one is tolerated and the other isn't. The good thing about it is we can repent and ask God through our Lord and Saviour Christ Jesus for forgiveness and do that sin no more. All we can do is try to be in the world but not of it. It is hard because we are not as Christ Jesus but if we are in Him we can ask for his full armour of protection and helmet of salvation to help us through this world and provide us with His wisdom, knowledge and understanding of this world instead of using our own since we are carnal and He is Holy. God bless you my Sister.
