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.

Thank you Rev. Luckett. The reponses you gave to Sister Nightrissa was indeed the wisdom of God. I agree with every word. You were a great help. Keep letting the Lord use you. Thank you again forbeing honest, and obedient. My heart is comforted to know that there are people who still love people enough to tell them the truth.
We should accept the homosexual and love the homosexual. Truth be told we have homosexuals in our families and churches who are not open about their sexuality. And there is no evil intent to turn folk gay or any other mess.
Good points and I do agree with you on the not beating them down. And truly I wish that more of us would pray for folk and then leave them alone. But when it comes to this issue some questions come to mind:

What does God say about homosexuality? Is God talking about sexual orientation or just sexual behavior? Do we view homosexuality as a sexual orientation? Do we believe that homosexuality is only about sex? With careful study of the scriptures on this issue what will we find?
Yes. We should love the homosexual, but we don't have to accept them. I have children that I love very much. but when they misbehave in school, I do not accept that behavior. It is unacceptable. God love the homosexual, but he does not accept them in the kingdom, nor do he accept their behavior in the earth. And if you think otherwise, you have not known Him regading this subject matter.
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
Isaiah 55:8
8For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.

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
What does God say about homosexuality?

“God says a lot about homosexuality, well, basically unjustified sexual relations. He speaks against it in exodus, 1 corithians 6, Acts 15:29, Eph 5:3, Gal 5:19-21..Rom 1:24-25..etc. God is talking about sexual orientation and behavior. Orientation is defined as one's natural preference in sexual partners; predilection for homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality.”

Are we in agreement that the scriptures were written by men who were inspired by God? If we are we in agreement then we must realize that at the time of the original writing of the scriptures there was no concept of sexual orientation. In your reply you even stated that sexual orientation is defined as one’s natural preference in sexual partners; predilection for homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality.

Do we believe that homosexuality is only about sex?

“No, just like one can committ adultery by looking at a woman in the wrong manner, A can do the same with a man. I believe if a man is constantly around a certain man, always with a certain man, and has a desire to always be with a man, then chances are there may be a desire for that man. And i'm not talking on the basis of a mentor/mentee relationship. If one forsakes a woman for that man, then there's really a problem. Even the tightest of friends want their space to do things with their wives or girlfriends.”

You stated earlier that sexual orientation is one’s natural preference in sexual partners however there are those straight, gay, lesbian, transgender and bisexual who are abstaining from sex.


“When the Angels were at lot's house, a few men from the city saw the Angels and they thought they were new men in town. They went to lot's house desiring to have sexual relations with the Angels. Lot even tried to give him his daughter, but they wanted the Angels. So the Angels told lot to let the men in. Needless to say, the Angels put a whooping on those men. (lol)”

For years we have mistakenly or purposely use the story of Sodom and Gomorrah to condemn the homosexual and it takes careful study of this scripture to get down to real. In your summary of this scripture you stated “When the Angels were at lot's house, a few men from the city saw the Angels and they thought they were new men in town.” Carful study of the scripture and study of Sodom would reveal that Sodom was a fortified city and they were very leery of any visitors especially strange men. The scripture talks about all the men and the boys surrounding Lot’s house to know the men. For so long we have believed that these men wanted to have sex with the angels because they were so attractive? Many theologians and Bible believe that this scripture is not a slam dunk when it comes to homosexuality and I agree. My reasoning is this: this scripture is more on same sex rape which was a common practice in those times. Warriors from a conquering army would rape the male leader and some soldiers of the army they conquered. This was a sign of taken one’s manhood. Rape has nothing to do with love or sex, love is about power.

Also further in the Bible it is explained what Sodom’s real sin was and there was another city in the Old Testament that tried to do the same thing except the male almost victim was not an angel. In fact the almost male victim offered up his concubine and the men took her raped and killed her and yet they were not destroyed. Jesus even talks about Sodom’s sin.
And it has nothing to do with homosexuality as we know it.
THE CITY OF SODOM WAS EXCEEDINGLY WICKED AND MORALLY CORRUPT IN THEIR THOUGHTS, DEEDS AND ACTIONS, THEIR SINS WERE HEAVY BEFORE THE LORD; AS MENTIONED IN GEN. 13:13 , GEN.18:20, DESTINED TO CONDEMNATION; IN GEN. 19:5 WHEN THE MEN OF SODOM SAID BRING THEM OUT TO US SO WE MAY KNOW THEM; THEIR INTENTIONS WAS TO KNOW THEM CARNALLY; IT IS THE REASON WHY LOT SAID WHAT HE SAID IN VERSE 8; HE HAD TWO DAUGHTERS WHICH HAD NOT KNOWN MEN AND HE WANTED TO BRING THEM OUT TO THEM. KJV BIBLE GIVES REFERENCE FOR GEN.19:5 TO ROMANS 1:24-27.
THEY WERE SODOMITES (qadesh) IN THE HEBREW, WITH UNNATURAL SEXUAL PRACTICES, CONNECTED TO IDOLATROUS AND IMPURE RITES OF WORSHIP, AN ABOMINATION TO THE LORD.
HENCE GOD DESTROYED THE CITY EXCEPT FOR LOT AND HIS FAMILY.
WE HAVE A SAVIOUR; JESUS; WE LOVE THE PERSON AS HE WOULD; AND HATE THE SIN, BUT SHARE THE WORD OF GOD WITH THEM SO THEY MAY COME TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRUTH.
BE BLESSED EVERY ONE AND HAPPY MOTHER DAY TO THE MOTHERS.
Word it how you please brother Palmer. Homosexuality "AS WE KNOW IT" is WRONG! God loves the homosexual, but he is still on his way to hell if he do not repent. The homosexual spirit is a very strong influence that must be dealt with in spiritual warfare. It is a stubborn, unclean, and a proud spirit. I know a few homosexuals. I like them. Most homosexuals are very nice people. They are very easy to get along with, and are reasonably kind. I pity them. Let me tell you why. When ever a murderer decides to make Jesus Lord of his life, He realizes that being a murderer is wrong, confesses it, and repents of it, and is therefore saved. The prostitute confesses that prostitution is wrong, repents, and is saved. The drunkard confesses that drunkeness is wrong, repents and is saved, the liar, the theif, the whoremonger, the cheat, the child molester, the rapist, and so on, all believe, confess their sin, repent, and are saved. But the homosexual is not so. He comes boldly to the throne of grace, and expects God to receive him on his/her terms. He will confess to many shortcomings in his life. But he will not admit that his alternative lifestyle (homosexual activities) is wrong, neither will he confess that it is a fault. He will not repent of it, and he expects God to accept him for who his confused self thinks he is. He has the gall to think he knows more about who he is than God does, as if God has made the mistake. If you were born male, there is no excuse for having sexual tendencies for other men. God lovs the homosexual, but He abhors homosexuality. God judges what is in the heart. If that is in the heart, it is impure, and polluted. Let's cut the devils advocacy act and get real BRO. If a man rapes a man, that's a homosexual act. If a man by consent have sex with another man, it is a homosexual act. This goes for women too. When a person wants to do wickedness bad enough, he can conjure up many words to justify his wrong. But there is a way that seemeth right to a man, but the end thereof is the way of death. You must learn to stand in the vision of God. The way of a man is right in his own eyes. This is why we have God's word. We cannot see or know the truth without it. Homosexuality in any shape, form, or fahion is WRONG. (PERIOD). It takes a man and a woman to become one flesh, not two men or two women. This is not what God intended, neither does He condone it. The bible teaches us that we are to study to show ourselves approved, workmen unto God that needeth not be ashamed. Sir. You aught to be ashamed. I see that you have studied, but not in the right direction. You have not rightly divided the truth. You have made excuses for sin. If its sin, call it sin. Woe unto him that calleth good evil, and evil good. Your knowledge is very dangerous for you. You are in much need of wisdom. Ask it of God. Wisdom will protect you from your knowledge. Your knowledge is corrupt, and is polluting your mind. God is not impressed with your intellectual savy. It is a reproach unto you. You are so drunk with your words, that you cannot tell that you do not walk straight. I should serve you a citation for TUI or TWI (Teaching under the influence /Teaching while intoxicated). For you are spoiled with the philosphy of men who would not live Holy, and has proceeded to teach under an influence that is NOT from God. I,m sorry. That had to be said. You have a great inflation of pride and arrogance about you that displeases heaven sorely. It is embarassing, to think that you are a minister of God and yet you speak as though you do not know him. Put your books down. Stop reading about God, and develop for yourself a real working relationship, and knowledge of Him. Some things you just know because you know Him. We all learn from books, but we must not neglect a mouth to mouth experience with God, where he breathes into us that breath of life that we so desperately need everyday. Because the air is polluted and vile. You must be able to hear God. And Bro. Palmer, I say, you do not hear God concerning this subject. Shame on you for strengthening the hand of the devil on my innocent homosexual brothers and sisters. I know they're gay, and I know they're wrong, but I love them. And I want to see them delivered and set free. Your propoganda is besetting, and is a stumblingblock. For you would have them comfortable in that cesspool of abomination. I am grieved because of people who are more concerned with how they sound, and what they know, than they are about souls. Souls are precious, and should be handled with care. Why persuade someone, anyone to take a chance on sin when their mortal soul is at stake?
Sexual behavior and sexual orientation are two different things. And rape is about power not about sexual orientation. Sexual orientation is real and was not addressed in Paul's time.

Since you are Pastor I am pretty sure you aware of Biblical interpretation and context.

"When ever a murderer decides to make Jesus Lord of his life, He realizes that being a murderer is wrong, confesses it, and repents of it, and is therefore saved. The prostitute confesses that prostitution is wrong, repents, and is saved. The drunkard confesses that drunkeness is wrong, repents and is saved, the li'ar, the theif, the whoremonger, the cheat, the child molester, the rapist, and so on, all believe, confess their sin, repent, and are saved. But the homosexual is not so"

No one is born a thief, no one is born a cheat, a rapist but we are born with our sexual orientations intact.

"Put your books down. Stop reading about God, and develop for yourself a real working relationship, and knowledge of Him."

So I can be like you? No thanks. I thank God for my education, I praise God for rescuing me from the close minded Biblical literalism that you suffer from. But you are not alone and that is why we are in the situation we are in now.

The situation is this: HIV/AIDS is running rampant through our communities because of the damage we "Church" folk have done in the lifes of our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters. You say shame on me well we can trade the shame and I say shame on you for increasing their guilty and shame for something that they didn't choose.

We choose to act upon our sexual orientation but we do not choose our sexual orientation.

So disagree if you will, but I know I'm right and praise God for that!!
Min. Palmer,
There is no hope for your words, neither is there hope in them. Yours is a terminal case. There is nothing else to say. You have won your bounty. That which you have groped after, you have gained. It belongs to you. This is your portion. Enjoy it. I only hoped that reason would prevail, but I can see that your heart is fixed, and your mind is made up. You believe your words. It would be foolish of me to try and persuade you otherwise. You dare not unravel yourself. To see this any other way than you already do will disturb your very foundation. Believe what you believe. I only pray that your reprobate philosophy does not affect others.
"To see this any other way than you already do will disturb your very foundation"

My foundation is built on Christ and nothing can move me from that foundation!!
There is little doubt in my mind that anything or anyone can remove you from your foundation. But this is your trouble. You are so bound and determined to build your foundation on Christ, that you have neglected to cast your own imagination down and allow Christ to actually be the foundaton. You lay your foundation upon a foundation which has already been lane, and you go about to establish your own rendition of what righteousness is based upon your own imaginations which have been exalted against the knowledge of God in your eyes regarding homosexuality. It's wrong man! You need to stop doing it. ITS WRONG! It is pointless for me even to go to scripture on this, because you do not believe the scripture. Everyone else is kind; and so they should be. They are too lovely to tell you that you have no discernment of scripture regarding this matter. Everybody knows you're wrong. I see noone defending your claims. But you honestly believe that you are right and everyone else is wrong, including God's word. Sir, that is reprobation. Maybe Sir, you should not build your foundation on Christ. Maybe you should remove yours altogether, and let Christ be the foundation.
Selah.
