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.

MarQ.... I gave you the answer to your question in simpliest of forms.... one word: hypocrisy.

The same word you just used in your passionate response.

When we search the scripture, not only do we see judgment but we also see grace and mercy. Without that, the wages (or punishment) for sin would continually wipe out all mankind (since ALL have sinned and fallen short of God's glory).

But let me digress back to your question. Should a person who is living ANY sinful lifestyle (in this case homosexuality) be allowed to have a leadership position in the church. The answer is NO.

Why is it allowed.... again, it goes back to the simple answer of hypocrisy of the leaders who allow it. It becomse leadership by word not by deed.

Although your question pertains to homosexuality, the REAL question should be is this person who is in leadership or who is being considered for leadership living a sinful LIFESTYLE (meaning repetitive sin with no remorse... and this could be ANY sin, not just homosexuality) or did this person commit a sin, ask and received God's forgiveness by faith through grace but still has the results of that sin in their life?

For example, if the person committed adultery 16 years ago and has a child outside of the marriage who is of the same age, should they NEVER EVER be returned to a position of leadership? If a person was a practicing homosexual in their past and has renounced that lifestyle and is devoted to doing things God's way to get God's results, should that person NEVER EVER be allowed to be a leader in the church? If so, then the many many leaders in the bible who had committed sins are in biblical error. King David did some horrible things and remained King... however, the "sword never left his home". It was seemingly hell on earth for him. I truly believe that if David did not have a heart for the Lord and maintained an attitude of confession and remorse for disobeying God, he too would have found himself in the Never Ever category.

However, let's look at some never evers...When we go to the scriptures for examples, we should look at how God dealt with the leaders who made the horrific mistake of committing sins while leading God's people:

MOSES
Sin - struck a rock in anger instead of obeying God and speaking to the rock
Consequence - God did not allow Moses to enter into the promised land. He could only LOOK at it.

SAUL
Sin - pride, witchcraft, jealousy which led to "sinful" anger (not just anger) -- this anger led to his purposefully murderous pursuit of David. Oh and the list goes on
Consequence - god removed him from his position as king!

JUDAS ISCARIOT
Sin - greed, lies, lustful pride
Consequence - physical death by his own hands

Now let's look at cities and nations:

I Samuel 15 - God commands Saul to wipe out a city because of the actions of it's king (Amalek - Deut 15:17-19). Saul was told to kill EVERYTHING... man, woman, child, and animals.

Deuteronomy 2:24-35 - God commands the wicked Amorite king Sihon of Hesbon to be destroyed along with all his cities (men, women and children of every city) NO ONE was left alive.

And of course, let's not forget that the ENTIRE WORLD was destroyed in the days of Noah becuase of their wickedness.

You see, wickedness/ungodliness is a lifestyle not a one time choice. The reason for the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah wasn't just homosexuality ... but it was their total wickedness.. thier SINFUL LIFESTYLE. Homosexuality was just part of it...not the total sum. When you have a moment, read 2 Peter 2:4-16

So, one should look at how God deals with leaders and nations that choose to live ungodly (not once or twice but a lifestyle of sinning with no remorse about their sins and no confession of sins.)

It is hypocrisy to allow such a person to be in leadership because what they will teach the people (if not in word but in deed) is that you can do whatever you want to do and not have any consequences of your sin. They will teach that you don't need to be accountable to man nor God for your actions nor are you required to live a life that is holy and submitted to God.

Lastly, never forget that we are given the ministry of reconciliation and we are to do our very best to RESTORE a brother or sister who has made sinful choices. Restoration can either be to the former position as leader or just back into the "family" without condemnation or persecution.

Try not to be angry at those Believers who are not like "church folk"

Leviticus 20:13
13If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.

Now here is a chapter in the bible homosexual love to use to call Jesus a liar by twisting the word of God into making it their own.

Matthew 19: 10-12
10His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.
11But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.
12For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there

(It is clear in this chapter that Jesus was referring to the concerns of divorcement,) Now take a look at other verses before verse 10 and 11, 12.
Matthew 19: 7-12
He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not so.
9And I say unto you, Whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and whoso marrieth her which is put away doth commit adultery.
10His disciples say unto him, If the case of the man be so with his wife, it is not good to marry.
11But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.
12For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother's womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven's sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.

Now as for the word eunuchs it has a totally different meaning than homosexual
God never say anything about eunuchs with eunuchs meaning homosexual activities stop twisting the word of God making it your own.

Proverbs 3: 5
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding

2 Timothy 4:3-4
3For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables

1 Timothy 4
1Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils

Leveticus 18: 22-24
You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination. Also you shall not have intercourse with any animal to be defiled with it, nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it; it is a perversion. Do not defile yourselves by any of these things; for by all these the nations which I am casting out before you have become defiled.

The anus is a delicate mechanism of small muscles that comprise an exit-only passage with repeated trauma friction and stretching the sphincter lose it tone and its ability to maintain a tight seal. Consequently anal sex leads to leakage of fecal material that can easily become chronic.

The potential for injury is exacerbated by the fact that the intestine has only a single layer of cells separating it from highly vascular tissue that is blood. It is much easier to establish infection organisms in feces, and mixing of bodily fluids.

It is clear that there are serious medical consequences to same sex behavior.


Romans 1: 25-29
For 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,

Jude 1:7
Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding cities, which likewise indulged in sexual immorality and pursued unnatural desire, serve as an example by undergoing a
punishment of eternal fire.

Romans 6:23
23For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord
Tee you stated "That word, my dear minister means 'to get intimate with' or ' to have intercourse with'....when we study the bible, we should ask for clarity and insight to get the message."

Now Tee let tell you this if one applies proper exegesis to this group of scripture they will learn a couple of things:

1. this is more about rape and sexual behavior and not sexual orientation
2. sexual orientation is different from sexual behavior . I don't know why we church folk and especially black folk can't get into our minds that no one chooses to be gay or straight for that matter. Lord I pray for our people. We are destroying our brothers and sisters and don't even care.
3. Sodom was a fortified city and known for their warring with neighboring cities. Strange men equaled spies. The question is did the men of Sodom view the angels as spies.
4. Rape was used in this period as a way to take one's manhood. Conquering warriors would rape the captian of their defeated foes as a way to embarass them and take their manhood.
5. Sexual behavior is different than sexual orientation. One can engage in homosexual behavior without being gay; example Prison!!!

What scriptures do you have to justify your answer. Scripture backs up scripture. There are no contradictions in the word of God. If you think you have found a contradiction, it is not. It is your interpretation of the word of God that is wrong. Scripture must agree. Give me sound scripture that says Homosexuality is an ok lifestyle.
God made mane in his own likeness.I have to agree with my bruther we as a church are soo ready to bash the gay man or woman and point fingers when folk in glass house should not use the bathroom.we are in times when some of us clergy want to pint fingers instead of inviteing everyone into Gods House God loved everyone and once we stop bashing each other then we can get the folk who left the church back to God and the church dont5 forget we all are sinners
Bashing? You need to develop your Spiritual nature more. Not accept the common theme that can generated no spiritual power to free christians from the Mental-Emotional-Carnal-physological bondage that Satan has us believing that the expression God loves everyone can grant us salvation. Remember he loved Satan to, his covered angel fullof wisdom, but punishment is swift and eternal. He loved Adam to but punishemnt for Eve-Serpent-Adam was swift and without question. Its time for us to engage in the casting out of sexual demonic forces that pervert our moral character.
yes!bashing yet for many of us clergy it is ok for us to give a pat on the back for those clergy who are sleeping around can commiting sin.And there are many clergy out here that are married to wemen who not only are sleeping with wemen but are also sleeping with men .we as clergy need to be very carful who we point the finger at when in fact we might be pointing the finger back at oneself insted of bashing the sinner we need to do as Jesus has done and welcome the sinner with open arms into Gods word not bash the sinner but to bring him or her into Gods word
so when you say casting out the demonic forces that pervert our moral character.then you must be saying that we all need that cast out of us even you?
Stanley stated "Its time for us to engage in the casting out of sexual demonic forces that pervert our moral character"

Homosexuality is a sexual orientation. The church has been trying to cast the "homosexual demonic forces" for years and guess what? It aint a demonic force.
ITS NOT BASHING IT CALL BRING PEOPLE TO THE TRUTH. SO THEY WILL HAVE A CHOICE TO SERVE GOD OR CONTINUE IN SIN.
